Scarlet Letters

Scarlet Letters



Jesus wrote, with scarlet letters

In the black and white, of the law

His shades of vermilion; covers our pages

Reconciling, our sinful flaws



With a crimson patch, with a russet bandage

Christ gives us, His somber hue

With His ruby rouge, upon our pages

God sees the blood, not what’s due

Our sins are washed in His blood and once they are washed we must remain under the blood of Jesus forever to remain in Him forever. AMEN & Hallelujah!

For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, santifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? (Hebrews 9:13-14).
Physiology of Blood

In the human body there are many different kinds of tissues. We define them as muscle, nerve, fat, gland, bone, connective tissues, etc. All these tissues have one thing in common: they are fixed cells, microscopically small and having a specific and limited function. Unlike these fixed tissues, the blood is fluid and mobile, that is, it is not limited to one part of the body but is free to move throughout the entire body and supply the fixed cells with nourishment and carry off the waste products and the “ashes” of cell activity, a process we call metabolism. In the normal human body there are about five quarts of this fluid, and this blood pumped by the heart circulates through the system about every twenty-three seconds, so that every cell in the body is constantly supplied and cleansed and at the same time is constant communication with every other cell in that body. This blood is the most mysterious of all tissues, being composed of scores of elements and compounds and strange chemical bodies, whose function is not yet fully understood, but all of which have to do with the mystery of life, for the life . . . is in the blood. Once the blood fails to reach the cells and members of the body, they promptly die and no man ever dies until his blood ceases to circulate. This life is in the blood.

Jesus' blood gave, gives and will keep on giving us life
As essential then as the blood is to our bodies, so essential is the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to the body of Christ. It, too, is fluid, so that it can reach every single member of that body no matter how far those members may be removed the one from the other. Just as the blood supplies the food elements for nourishment and life, and then carries off the waste products and poisons due to cell metabolism, so, too, the Lord Jesus Christ is to every believer the only Source of life, the only support and sustenance of life, but also the One who keeps cleansing us day by day, so that our eternal life is really Eternal, for the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin.

"We have an ALTAR and a PRIEST
Within the riven veil—
All typal sacrifice has ceased,
Remove that 'altar rail!'
With holy boldness venture nigh;
The Golden Altar stands on high.

"'Tis sprinkled with the costly blood
On which the Father smiles,
That blood which from the Offerer flowed
For all whom sin defiles.
Look there, and meet your Father's eye,
THERE learn the priestly mystery.

"The bronze altar smokes no more
On which the Victim lay,
Where sin's unmeasured doom He bore,
When you had nothing to pay;
'Go forth without the camp,' and see
What God's High Priest has done for thee.

"Then look within 'the Inner Shrine,'
Where now He pleading stands,
Not God's High Priest alone, but thine—
What say those wounded hands?
The Father, when those scars He healed,
Once, and for aye, your pardon sealed.

"Though now in heaven, the Priestly King
Long ministered on earth;
His life one 'whole burnt-offering,'
Sweet-savored from his birth;
The fragrance of that life divine
Perfumes and fills 'the Inner Shrine.'

"No 'rood screen' shields it from the eye
Of those whose sight is true;
That 'Inner Shrine' in yon pure sky
Is open now for you.
All conscience-cleansed and free from sin,
The full-robed Priest says, 'Welcome in.'

"Behold those jewels on His breast,
Each as a signet graved!
Close to that bosom, warmly prest,
Lie those by Jesus saved;
And you are saved, whoe'er you art,
If Jesus has your willing heart.

"The golden frontlet on his brow,
With 'Holiness' inscribed,
Tells that the law is honored now,
In vain with tinsel bribed:
The perfect work of One alone
Will God's all-searching justice own.

"Hark to the music of those bells!
How sweet their silver voice!
Of Peace, Good-will, and Grace it tells—
How can you but rejoice,
When God Himself delights to hear
Those silver tones salute His ear!

"A golden lamp sheds forth its ray;
The Spirit is your guide;
He shows the New, the Living Way—
The rent veil opens wide:
A seven-fold light that lamp imparts,
And courage gives to trembling hearts.

"And say, have you not often regaled
Upon that living Bread,
Which, when all earthly comfort failed,
Your craving spirit fed?
That heavenly Manna, Show-bread sweet,
Which none but white-robed priests may eat.

"The Laver stands. If earth-defiled,
Go, wash your hands, your feet,
And simply as a pardoned child
Approach the Mercy-seat;
Within the veil your censer bring,
And burn sweet incense to the King.

"For know, that since God's Lamb was slain,
All typal rites have ceased;
Nor until MELCHISEDEK shall reign,
May earth behold a priest,
Save those who, washed in Jesus' blood,
Are now made white-robed priests to God.

"They walk 'the outer court' a while,
But live within the veil;
Look out and weep, look in and smile,
And chant the melting tale
Of Him who blessed the bread and wine—
'THE PRIEST' within 'THE INNER SHRINE.'

—By the Author of "Wild Thyme."
