The Great Exchange ~

The Great Exchange ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

He forgives,
the unforgivable
He loves
the undesirable.

He redeems,
the unjust
He atones
the corrupt.

He justifies,
the wicked
He paid for
the crooked.

He pities,
the helpless
He delivers
the hopeless.

He condemns,
not a one
He pardons
all evil done.

Jesus exchanged,
His life for ours
so won’t you today . . .
please give Him yours?

~~~~~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his
only begotten Son,

in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life.”

The Power of the Blood ~

cleansed-by-the-blood CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The power of the blood,
is our souls atonement
for Jesus became for us
our spiritual proponent.

His life and death brought,
with God reconciliation
for our sins Jesus suffered
shame and humiliation.

His blood has the power,
to cleanse us from all sin
to wash away the stains
they have left deep within.

The day He died for us,
was the day of justification
the cross on which He hung
was for our sanctification.

The power of the blood,
brings to all eternal peace
for Jesus died so we could be
from sin, finally released!

~~~~~~~~~

Leviticus 17:11

” For the life of the flesh is in the blood:
and I have given it to you upon the altar
to make an atonement for your souls:
for it is the blood that maketh
an atonement for the soul.”

Lord, may I always,
remember You . . .

May I remember,

to make my life new.

May I not forget,

so my own salvation
could be secured.

Lord, may I always,
remember You . . .

always shine through!

Onto Jesus ~

Onto Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

All my inequity,
all of my sin
God put it all
all onto Him.

Onto Jesus,
God set my soul
so by His stripes
I’d be made whole.

Every unkind word,
evil thought or look
onto the cross
Jesus obediently took.

The lusts of my mind,
the deceit in my heart
onto Jesus’ own heart
God did impart.

Onto Jesus,
God placed my strife
then for my sins . . .
He gave up His life!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 2:24

“Who his own self bare our sins

True Love ~

Come to the Cross ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Hew Died for All - IBible Verse

He felt forsaken,
by His Father above
He was truly hated
so we could find true love.

He was condemned,
so we could be justified
He was beaten
so we’d be healed inside.

He was made sin,
so we could be set free
He was crucified
so from sin we could flee.

He gave up His own life,
so we could be redeemed
He was our punishment
so we could be esteemed.

He bled and He died,
so we could forever live
He hung on a cross
so our sins, He could forgive!

through his blood, even
the forgiveness of sins:

All Because of His Name ~

All Because of His Name ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ photo/creationswap

He who had no fault,
no witness to defame
was declared guilty . . .
all because of His name.

He who broke no law,
nor to Satan did He obey
was crucified to death
for our iniquity that day.

He who did no wrong,
was put to public shame
ridiculed upon the cross
all because of His name.

He who had no sin,
took the punishment for us
with each piercing stab
on Him that was thrust.

He who had no fault,
took our share of blame
so He could forgive all . . .
who call upon His name!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:2-5

“For he shall grow up before him
as a tender plant, and as a root
out of a dry ground: he hath no
form nor comeliness; and when we
shall see him, there is no beauty
that we should desire him.

He is despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted
with grief: and we hid as it were
our faces from him; he was despised,
and we esteemed him not.

Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows: yet we
did esteem him stricken, smitten
of God, and afflicted.

But he was wounded for our
transgressions, he was bruised
for our iniquities: the chastisement
of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.”

By Faith through Grace ~

By Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In Christ alone,
my hope is found
and ever since
I’m heaven bound.

For Jesus gave me,
the gift of eternity
through faith in Him
I have this surety.

In Christ alone,
my resting place
not of my doing
but of His grace.

For Jesus die,
for my peace
so I may live
after I decease.

In Christ alone,
my sins atoned
the day He sat down
on His Father’s throne!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:2

“Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and is
set down at the right hand
of the throne of God.”

No One’s Perfect ~

No One's Perfect ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

No one is perfect,
no, not one is good
nobody does what God
says that they should.

We all have gone,
off on our own
every one of us
is out on the roam.

Wanderers we are,
drifters we be
tossed to and fro
on a faithless sea.

Everyone’s deprived,
all are sinful
to God’s way
not one is mindful.

No one is good,
not even one of us
that’s why in Jesus . . .
we must put our trust!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:6

“All we like sheep
have gone astray;

we have turned
every one
to his own way;

and the Lord
hath laid on him

the iniquity
of us all.”

He Died For Me ~

He Died for Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Thank you Jesus,
for dying for me
for from my sins
setting me free.

Thank you Jesus,
for redeeming me
for Your suffering
instead of me.

Thank you Jesus,
for forgiving me
for justifying
the evilness in me.

Thank you Jesus,
for not condemning me
for the grace and love
You’ve shown me.

Thank you Jesus,
for dying for me
for giving me . . .
a new life in Thee!

Grace Came ~

Grace Came ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Grace was made flesh,
it was human and real
it prayed and it supped
it taught and it healed.

Grace came to save,
to justify and set free
grace imparted faith
to walk on the sea.

Grace came to give,
freedom and liberty
grace came to end
sinful man’s mystery.

Grace came to supply
strength to the weak
grace came to love
the poor and the meek.

Grace came in truth,
while here on earth
grace died on the cross
to bring all new birth.

Grace came in body,
heart, mind and soul
grace came in peace
to heal and make whole!

~~~~~~~

John 1:14

“And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory,
the glory as of the
only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.”

I am The One ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I am the Bread,

I am the only One
who can set a sinner free.

I am the Light,
bringing eternal life
I am the One who heals
man’s bitterness and strife.

sinner’s from God’s wrath.

I am the Life,

I am the resurrection
for I am God’s, risen Son!

believeth in me,
though he were dead,
yet shall he live:

And whosoever liveth
and believeth in me
shall never die.

Believest thou this?”

Healing Stripes ~

Jesus' Dying Breath ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~Jesus Paid it All - IBible Verse

His stripes healed,
our spiritual sickness
became the remedy
to sin’s wickedness.

Each lash mark,
screams of our rebellion
each slice of flesh
cries of our defection.

His stripes cured,
our sinful demise
became the balm
to our compromise.

Each strike of hate,
spoke of His great love
each lash mark left
glorified His Father above.

By His stripes,
we have been saved
in His death, the way . . .
to heaven was paved!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 2:24

“Who his own self bare
our sins in his own body
on the tree, that we,
being dead to sins,
should live unto
righteousness: by whose
stripes ye were healed.”

A Fatal Disease ~

A Fatal Disease ~ CHRISTian poerty by deborah ann ~ The Blood photo from Creation Swap

I have been diagnosed,
with a fatal disease
soon my whole body
it will capture and seize.

The prognosis isn’t good,
my situation is dire
from the effects of it
I will surely expire.

The disease is invasive,
eating away at my soul
my mind and my heart
it too, will take control.

There’s no escape from it,
its all-encompassing
doctors tell me a remedy
they’ll not be discovering.

But, I know of a cure,
for the sickness called sin . . .
it’s the cleansing blood of Jesus
that heals the disease within!

~~~~~~~~

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful
and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

For, His beloved Son,
died for you and me
so from the fiery pit
He could set us free.

He has risen . . .
hallelujah the angels sing
He has risen . . .
eternal life to man He brings.

For, Jesus is alive,
resurrected and living
in our lives
His Spirit is breathing.

He has risen . . .
the Lamb of God from above
He has risen . . .
with peace and eternal love!

Which Thief are You?

Which Thief Are You ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo Creastion Swap

Which thief are you,
what one do you relate most to
the one who mocked Jesus
or the one who saw God, through?

Both wanted to be saved,
neither wanted to die
but only one had the courage
to look Jesus in the eye.

Both were sinners,
their punishment was death
but only one was saved
from hell’s fiery depth.

Both were convicted,
of their own evil offenses
but only one was willing
to come to Jesus’ defense.

Both were paying the price,
for all of their wrongs
but only one was repentant
and now in paradise belongs.

Which thief are you,
the one who mocks and blames
or the one who admits guilt
and is spared hell’s flames?

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 23:39-43

” And one of the malefactors
which were hanged railed on him, saying,
If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
But the other answering rebuked him,
saying, Dost not thou fear God,
seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

And we indeed justly; for we receive the
due reward of our deeds:but this man hath
done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus,
Lord, remember me when thou comest into
thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him,
Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou
be with me in paradise.’

Wounded ~

Wounded ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Christ Crucified - IBible Verse

Insulted and ridiculed,
poked and made fun of
for me Jesus was affronted
in the name of eternal love.

Bruised for my rebellion,
cursed and  spit upon
for my own wickedness
Jesus was severely beaten on.

Wounded for my sins,
whipped and cruelly lashed
for my transgressions
Jesus was brutally slashed.

Pierced and stabbed,
left hanging on the cross
because of me, Jesus became
no better than a pile of dross.

My punishment He took,
my peace, He finally sealed
tis why by His stripes today
my soul to God is healed!

“But he was wounded for our transgressions,

Betrayed ~

Betrayed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo Creation Swap

Betrayed with a traitor’s kiss,
from a known believer . . .
who would have thought it was
from the lips of the deceiver.

He appeared to everyone,
to be a faithful follower
to Christ and His ministry
he was a willing supporter.

But, Jesus knew his heart,
he saw evilness enter in
to place the kiss of death
on the One, who had no sin.

Upon the kiss of betrayal,
Jesus knew what He had to do
for, it was His Father’s will
to die for me and you.

Betrayed with a traitor’s kiss,
Jesus was on that day
for, He knew that into heaven . . .
there was no other way!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“And while he yet spake, behold a multitude,

Man of Our Sorrows ~

Man of Our Sorrow ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Salvation Belongs  IBible Verses
Man of our sorrows,
rejected and despised
unloved, unwanted
loathed and chastised.

Man of our sufferings,
acquainted with affliction
grief, pain, anguish
trials and conviction.

Man of our depression,
mournful and devastated
dejected, forgotten, isolated
set apart and terminated.

Man of our deception,
tempted and enticed
lured, beguiled, charmed
with every evil device.

Man of our diseases,
illnesses and sickness
maladies, disorders, decay
rebellion and brokeness.

Man of our sorrows,
sufferings and deceptions
Man of our salvation . . .
died for our transgressions!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53. 3-5

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows,
and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were
our faces from him; he was despised, and we
esteemed him not.

Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem
him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:

the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed”

My Savior’s Touch ~

My Savior's Touch ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, my Savior,
thank You so much
for the comfort . . .
of Your healing touch.

A refreshing balm,
restoring and renewing
a respite for the weary
calming and soothing.

Consoling hands,
a touch so reassuring
there’s nothing to fear
no need for worrying.

A cure-all to strife,
a salve for the soul
one life-giving touch
made my life whole.

Arms of compassion,
extensions of grace
the touch of mercy
an eternal embrace.

Lord, my Savior,
thank You so much
for the cleansing power
in Your healing touch!

The Best Love Story ~

The Best Love Story ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo CreationSwap

A love story not written,
with ink from a pen
but dripping with blood
to release all from sin.

The scarlet thread of love,
woven throughout history
reveals to all the world
salvation’s true mystery.

The design of redemption,
was always in God’s plan
it was the only way to show
His mercy, to all of man.

For, God knew our souls,
needed true deliverance
so His sent His Son, Jesus
to atone, for our ignorance.

Grace mixed with blood,
the day those nails were driven
making the death of Jesus . . .
the best love story ever written!

No other truth,
no other plan
only Jesus brings . . .
