The Declaration

Background on Declaration: The last poem that I wrote was entitled, “Sin”, and it can be found here. Today’s poem, “Declaration”, makes one take time to think about events that occurred leading up to the death of Jesus, as he hung on the cross.

The transparency of the rain.

Of the struggles that it aims.

As one waits for the Son.

Be renewed by the One.

Who himself took on pain.

Blood of Christ filled with stains.

As the shadows drew so near.

Heard “It is finished”.

In their ears.

The Declaration: Bible Verses to Meditate On:

Matthew 27:45-50

From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land.  About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).

 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.” Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink.  The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.”

And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.
