Face to Face

 He became a baby,

born in a stable of Bethlehem,

born from a virgin,

wrapped in rags,

laid in a manger,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

He was proclaimed by angels,

worshiped by shepherds,

designated with a star,

sought by eastern wise men,

hunted by Herod,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

Driven into Egypt,

returns to Nazareth,

was strong in the Spirit,

and filled with wisdom,

Abba’s grace was upon Him,

He amazed the scholars,

worked with His hands,

 was only a son of a carpenter,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

He was baptized in the Jordan,

heaven’s regal gates opened,

 like a dove as the Spirit descended,

Abba’s royal thunder exclaimed,

I AM well pleased!

This is My Son,

led into the wilderness,

hungry and thirsty

tested and tempted,

He sinned not,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

He called the fishermen,

He called the tax collectors,

He healed the sick,

He fed the thousands,

and when He spoke,

 the wind and sea obeyed,

 He commanded demons to flee and death to retreat,

Pharisees questioned without compassion,

mocked by disbelieving Sadducees,

the Scribes demanded answers,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

He came upon a donkey,

multitudes cried out,

our King has come,

Hosanna in the highest,

high priests plotted  murder,

thirty pieces of silver,

a price paid to be betrayed,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

In the garden of anguish He prayed,

as sweat, blood and tears droplets fell,

not My will but Abba’s be done,

faithless disciple used the betrayer’s kiss,

evil’s outraged mob arrested,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

His trial was contemptible,

accused of factitious crimes,

counterfeit witnesses testified,

Chief Priests judged Him guilty,

they condemned Him,

He must die

Peter denied Him thrice,

so we could love Him,

Face to Face.

Governor Pilate questioned Him,

He was flogged and punched,

He was spat upon and mocked,

He was crowned with thorns,

in Him no guilt was found,

the sentence was pronounced,

DEATH to the King of Kings,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

He walked Gogotha’s lonely rocky road,

Roman soldiers nailed Him,

naked to the tree,

as all His blood flowed out,

He made His final decree,

IT IS FINISHED!

He Died

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

 His body was placed,

 in a borrowed sealed tomb,

    Roman soldiers stood guard,

at death’s cold hellish gate,

three days later,

the earth’s ground rolled,

the Christ the Son of God,

walked out from death’s cold hold,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

Jesus was born,

suffered, died and rose again,

 He return to His throne,

to make for us a home,

soon and very soon He will return,

so we can love Him

Face to Face!

    Excellent poem!

  14. Hello James, I came to thank you for liking my posts, and was so blessed to read this!! Beautiful!! Thank you for pouring your heart out for the family to share. Lori

    • Lori, You have blessed with your blog and you have blessed by your visit to mine. I cannot call you a guest for you are family a daughter of our Most High King. For wherever you have gone a light is left shining after you have gone, Amen.

  15. I am blessed by your writing. It is wonderful to truly be men of ONE accord. The kindred spirit laid in the hearts of all the faithful.

    I have always visualized your ‘Face to Face’ as the the Lord’s perfect plan to intersect Himself with Man – for us to see, hear, and touch the face of God. If we never had this tangent between the temporal and the eternal, we would always surmise God, I believe.

    His perfect plan.

    Thank you for the beautiful post that walks the reader through the gospel – our true Good News!

    Peace and Love in Christ Jesus
    Rick

    • Rick, Your words have blessed me deeply, I am humbled. I started to write a Christmas poem what I found is I could not look at the birth of Christ without looking at His life. I could not look at His life without looking at His death. I could not look at His death without Seeing the cross. When I see the cross I find Christ is not there the only thing left on the cross is my sin. When I look at the tomb I see Christ is not there but alive in me, not just my Hope but my assurance of life forever loving Him Face to Face, Amen.
      Joy unspeakable Joy and Love in the name of Yeshua.
