Our hope firm and sure soul anchor


Letter to the Hebrews Six v- 17 thru 20

17 So when God wanted to give the heirs of his promise an even clearer demonstration of the immutability of his purpose, he intervened with an oath, 18 so that by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge might be strongly encouraged to hold fast to the hope that lies before us. 19 This we have as an anchor of the soul, sure and firm, which reaches into the interior behind the veil, 20 where Jesus has entered on our behalf as forerunner, becoming high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

When you finally agree that it is impossible for God to lie, then you begin to take refuge by holding fast to the hope that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. He is the one High Priest that allows us to go behind the veil so to speak and enter with Him as our forerunner according to the Order of Melchizedek holy blameless unstained. His hope we find His purpose living according to His will this seems hard to understand but with your daily practice you can find humility to live in Gods stand. Stand up for Jesus! See not the distastes of human repugnance but the smell of Salvation understood as life giving forces sharing mercy. Today this picture reminds me of my Uncle Jim Hodges. He died on Good Friday from heart failure. My heart goes out to my Aunt Betty who gave her all to her soul-mate in Christ Jesus. She said, “We will walk together again when God calls us all home. Amen,” He was humble and God-fearing. Rest in Peace. Amen.

Let us rerevisit Catechist Paragraph 1544; “Everything that the priesthood of the Old Covenant prefigured finds its fulfillment in Christ Jesus, the “one mediator between God and men.”15 The Christian tradition considers Melchizedek, “priest of God Most High,” as a prefiguration of the priesthood of Christ, the unique “high priest after the order of Melchizedek”;16 “holy, blameless, unstained,”17 “by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are sanctified,”18 that is, by the unique sacrifice of the cross.”

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day. Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others. Holy Spirit and St Joseph CC & Holy Mother Church. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

I am a poet obedient to Christ,
