Light Shall Shine Out of Darkness!

The Promise

Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.

hebrews 2:14-15 (NlT)

Of all God’s promises, this one was first
Yet generations continue to thirst

That old serpent was deceptively wise
And taunted Eve with his masterful lies

Sin entered the world, its wages are death
But Christ prevailed when He took his last breath

Trampled underfoot, the serpent is bruised
The evil one stands forever accused

Our forefathers saw Christ afar and believed
The Blessed Hope they embraced and received

By Abraham’s faith he was justified
He stepped out knowing the Lord would provide

Moses left treasures for the King’s reward
David’s heart sang of a merciful Lord

Our Redeemer lives, as even Job knew
The First and the Last and all that is True

Born of a virgin and under the law
Christ vindicates sinners once and for all

By His defense alone we must plead
The Son of God is the promised seed

  1. Gosh, it really stood out to me, the scripture in the beginning because of the version, so clear: “For only as a human being could He die…” Blindness is exactly that–blind! Otherwise, how hard should it be to see that as human beings we NEED Christ the Savior?!
