Into Rest

Jesus is the way, truth, and life
for only through Him shall you enter
into the day of rest
through the power of the resurrection 
where all things have been placed under His feet
bringing  victory over all creation
pouring out the spirit unto those who believe
that all man, have available in this moment
a clean overflowing cup to ingest
breaking the bondage of the firstborn
or circumcising the old flesh 
leaving the lack of knowledge to wither
down to the roots in which it sprout
for the emptiness has been witnessed
to be transplanted from a broken seed
that must die in order to live
with truth as the foundation
and spirit to bring nourishment
living among ones in the harvest
being pulled in together as a hen with chicks 
no longer trying to build on their own laws and desires
which lead to destruction 
or forcing the gardener to work
when all has been created 
that one might live in abundance
By allowing the Lord to give new direction
for He shall walk with and open the gate
 all things to produce is instilled
with the eyes fixed on the word
that we might get out of the way
in order to be sculpted 
to bring glory to the Father
that He may use the new creation
to lead another into rest
