THE  LAMB

THE LAMB
THE LAMB

THE LAMB
SLAIN FROM THE FOUNDATION
OF THIS WORLD
THE LAMB
SLAIN IN YOUR PLACE

OF
WHICH
OF THESE
IS
WORTHY
TO HAVE
A SPOTLESS LAMB
TAKEN IN YOUR PLACE?

OF
WHICH
OF THESE
IS
THERE AMONG YOU
WHO HAS CHOSEN
A LIKE WALK
AS
THE
SON OF MAN?

I
SPEAK TO YOU
OF THINGS TO COME

I
SPEAK TO YOU
OF THINGS PAST

I
SPEAK TO YOU
OF MYSTERIES
NOT YET
REVEALED

I
SPEAK TO YOU
OF
A LAMB
AN INNOCENT LAMB
CREATED ON EARTH
BIRTHED IN HEAVEN

I
SPEAK TO YOU
OF THE
ABOMINATIONS
OF
THIS WORLD
POURED OUT UPON
THIS
ONE LAMB
THIS
SON OF GOD

WHY DO
YOU SPEAK
AS IF
YOU HAVE NEVER
HEARD?

WHY DO
YOU SPEAK
OF THINGS WHICH
HAVE NOT BEEN
TRULY RECORDED
AS YET?

WHY DO
YOU SPEAK
FROM YOUR MIND
WHEN ONLY
THE SPIRIT
KNOWS
OF THE
SPIRIT WORLD
WITH
TRUE CONFIRMATION?

I
SPEAK
OF
A LAMB
I
SPEAK
OF
MYSELF
GIVEN
AS A SACRIFICE
TO
BRING BACK MANY
FROM
THE GRAVE
FROM
THE
STING OF DEATH

WHERE
IS
YOUR VICTORY
O DEATH?

WHERE
IS
YOUR REWARD?

FOR YOU SEE
I CAME
AS A HUMAN
I CAME
AND
I WEPT
AND
I DIED
A
CURSED DEATH
TO
BRING YOU
FREEDOM
TO
BRING YOU
LIFE
TO
BRING YOU
TO
MYSELF


I CAME
BUT WILL
I
COME AGAIN?

WHAT
DO THE
SCRIPTURES SAY?

HAS
THIS TRULY
BEEN PROMISED
TO YOU?

WHERE
DOES IT SAY
THAT
THE LAMB
WILL RETURN?

IT SAYS
THAT
A
KING WILL RETURN
BUT
IS
THE KING
ALSO
THE LAMB
THAT
WAS?

WHAT
ARE IN
YOUR THOUGHTS
PEOPLE?

HOW
CAN A LAMB
BECOME
A KING?

HOW
CAN A SACRIFICE
BECOME
REIGNING GLORY?

HOW
CAN THIS BE?

I
SPEAK TO YOU
TODAY
OF
MYSTERIES ABOUND

I
SPEAK TO YOU
OF
A KING
WHO CAME
AS
A CHILD
A MERE BABE
AND YET
WAS
REFUSED
WAS
DESPISED
WAS
CAST OUT

THIS
CHILD KING
WAS BORN
IN A
HUMBLE SETTING

THIS
CHILD KING
BORE
NO RESEMBLANCE
TO
KINGLY HONOR
OF
THIS WORLD

WHERE
WAS
THIS
CHILD'S KINGDOM?

THIS
CHILD'S KINGDOM
LAY
IN
THE
HEART
OF EACH
OF THE ONES
WHO WOULD HONOR
THIS ONE
SO MILD, SO MEEK, SO LOVING

WHERE
DOES
THE LAMB
HAS ITS ORIGIN?

WHERE
WAS
THE LAMB
FIRST SLAIN?

WAS IT NOT
FIRST SLAIN
IN
THE HEARTS
OF
THOSE
WHO
WOULD NOT
BOW DOWN?

WAS IT NOT
SLAIN
IN
THE MINDS
OF
THOSE
WHO
COULD NOT
COMPREHEND?

WAS IT NOT
SLAIN
IN THE SOUL
OF
MAN WHO
EATS FROM
THE WRONG TREE?

YES
THE
LAMB
WAS SLAIN
BUT
EVEN TODAY
I
PRESENT TO YOU
A
"NEW" LAMB

THIS LAMB
WAS BIRTHED IN ZION
BUT ALSO
HAS AN
EARTHLY ABODE

THIS LAMB
ALTHOUGH NOT INNOCENT
WAS DESTINED
FOR
THE THRONE

THIS LAMB
ALTHOUGH NOT YET COMPLETE
NOT YET MATURE
WILL EXPERIENCE
THE CROSS
WILL BECOME
A SACRIFICE

WHAT
IS THIS
NEW LAMB
YOU ASK?

WHAT
IS THIS LAMB
THAT
WILL BE
PUT TO DEATH
BY THIS
WORLD SYSTEM?

WHAT
IS THIS LAMB
THAT WILL APPEAR
SPOTLESS AND PURE
AND YET
THE WORLD
WILL REJECT IT?

WHAT
IS
THIS NEW LAMB
THAT THE WORLD
WILL NOT
SEE
ITS
KINGLY DESTINY?

WHAT
IS
THIS NEW LAMB
SLAIN BEFORE
THE
FOUNDATIONS
OF
THIS EARTH?

WHAT
IS THIS
NEW LAMB?

IT IS
THE CHURCH


WHAT
IS
COMMUNION
THAT
I
SHOULD SUP
WITH
MY PEOPLE?

WHAT
IS
COMMUNION
THAT
I
SHOULD OFFER
MY BLOOD AND MY BODY
UNLESS
YOU TOO
ARE TO PARTICIPATE
IN
MY DEATH
AND
RESURRECTION?

WHAT PART
OF YOU
IS
MINE
TO OWN?

WHAT PART
OF YOU
IS
OFFERED
TO
ME
AT THE
COMMUNION TABLE?

I
GAVE YOU
MY ALL
UNTO DEATH

I
ASK YOU
THE SAME
AS
I
LAY ON
THE CROSS
AS A
SACRIFICE
FOR
YOUR SINS
A MERE LAMB
DESTINED
TO DIE
IN
YOUR PLACE

I
SAW YOU
TOO
SLAIN BEFORE TIME
BEGAN
SLAIN AS
I
WAS SLAIN
BEATEN AND ROBBED
OF
ALL DIGNITY
DEPRIVED
OF
HUMAN CARE AND LOVE
SLAUGHTERED
AT THE
HANDS OF EVIL MEN

I
SAW YOU
HANGING
UPON THE CROSS
AND
I
WEPT
FOR
I
KNEW
THE AGONY
I
KNEW
THE FEELINGS
OF DEFEAT
I
KNEW
THE CURSING THOUGHTS
AGAINST YOU
I
KNEW
THERE
WAS NOT
TO BE
JUST
ONE LAMB SLAIN

IT
WAS
NEVER
ARRANGED
TO BE
A
SINGLE DEATH
BUT
A
DEATH TO ALL MANKIND
WHO WOULD
FOLLOW
ME

THERE IS
NO
RESURRECTION
WITHOUT
DEATH

THERE IS
NO
VICTORY
WITHOUT
THE CROSS

THERE IS
NO
COMMUNION
UNLESS
YOU DRINK
OF
THE SAME CUP

THERE IS
NO
LIFE GIVING FLOW
FROM
HEAVEN TO EARTH
UNTIL
YOU
HAVE GONE PAST
THE CROSS
INTO
THE RESURRECTION

I
SUP WITH YOU
THIS DAY
PEOPLE
BUT
NOT
IN
THE
PHYSICAL
BUT
TRULY
IN
THE
SPIRITUAL
FOR YOU SEE
ALL THOSE
WHO WOULD CHOOSE
TO
DRINK OF THE WINE
AND
EAT OF THE BREAD
IN
THESE LAST DAYS
WILL BECOME
A LAMB
UNTO
THE SLAUGHTER

I
PRESENTED
MY BODY
MY LIFE
AS THE
SACRIFICE
FOR
YOUR SINS
FOR
YOUR DISOBEDIENCE

NOW
I
WILL POUR YOU
OUT
AS A
SACRIFICE
TO
BRING
THE WORLD
TO
THE CROSS

THIS
IS NOT
RELIGION

THIS
IS NOT
FANTASY

THIS
IS NOT
A
SPIRITUAL LADDER

THIS IS DEATH

DEATH
TO SELF

DEATH
TO THIS LIFE

DEATH
TO ALL
THAT YOU ARE
TO
BECOME
ALL
THAT
I AM
SPOTLESS, PURE, LOVELY
MY COUNTERPART
MY BRIDE.

SHALOM
