Jesus (an acrostic poem by Theresa Moore)

Jesus Good Shepherd

<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3

Scripture reference;

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.   Matthew  1:18-25 KJV

Jesus

J ourneyed to the Earth, on the Earth, in the Earth, and from the Earth

E ntreating on our behalf in prayer in the garden, on the cross, and from His throne

S ecured salvation for those who were lost

U nveiling the eyes from what was unseen

S upplying and sustaining life eternal

<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3

    • Thank you, Deb. I wish I could write some more Bible study type of posts like I used to do. Lately acrostic poems have been easier.

      The first line was a challenge. When it came to the ascension, I wasn’t sure if it was really appropriate to refer to it as a Journey from the Earth back to Heaven. But I kept thinking about these words:

      “28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.

      29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.

      30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.

      31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?

      32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

      33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:28-33

      I also was thinking about the journey “in” the earth when I thought about these passages:

      “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Matthew12:40

      “18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

      19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

      20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.” 1 Peter 3:18-20

      I hope I didn’t go off track.

      Love,
      Theresa
