Patterns

local wind patterns

So we have it: Day, month, and year

All in the codes; the answers are vivid and clear.

Observing numbers, a story to tell;

As they repeat, it is so swell.

Now study patterns the Bible brings forth

All the illustrations, the stories we sort.

The theme radiates through; the imagery repeats.

That is the joy that is so neat.

Christ in all the WORD; no other way to be

He is the author and finisher

Of the faith we can vividly see.

So as we see the lamp stands, the tabernacle, and linens so white.

We realise it’s only a shadow

Of the Almighty, perfect and Right;

The pattern however subtle; it is always there

Prove the Word of God; nothing else can compare.

Observing all the stories, God’s pattern is the key.

By faith alone, for heaven’s door to see.

Observing Religion

Observing Religion

Black hat and tails, white shirts we see

The formal attire is well beyond me

They come in for their meeting; in the rise of the day

Looking important, to face God, by the way.

 

The formal attire, righteousness before him

A Holy God; our corruption and sin

They wear white robes to cover the black

The righteousness of Christ is what is on track.

 

To cover the sin; the purity and white

The sacrifice of the Lamb; God’s gift is right.

We can’t see the connection; the pattern of the King.

The Creator the Resurrection; Salvation did bring.

 

The pictures are vivid, the stories are clear.

Faith alone; what are people missing here?

And so the ritual, Man’s religion and way

Christ did it all; On the Cross that day.
