TITLE: The Pursuit of Death, Part II

Please read George Parler's "The Pursuit of Death" before reading this, I will make more sense. I read his on a Saturday, Sunday we sang Charles Wesley's "And Can It Be?" in Church. The first verse he penned this line - "For me, who Him o death pursued." I'm not a poet but was moved and on Monday wrote the following:
The Pursuit of Death, Part II


“Adam, where are you?”
The All-Knowing Word asked

Afraid, hiding, naked
Animal sacrifice, clothed

The plan commenced
Death pursued

Ejected from Paradise
Abel’s blood cried out

Only evil in the world
Noah instructed

Abraham called
Sodom and Gomorrah

Joseph’s coat of many colors
Changed to royal Egyptian robe

Jacob’s family to Egypt
400 years, slaves

Cry for deliverance
Moses sent

Pharaoh/plagues
Red Sea parted

Mount Sinai
Commandments broken

Two faithful spies only
Wilderness 40 years

Jordan crossed
Promised Land taken

Theocracy rejected
“We want a king”

Idolatry
Israel Falls/captivity

Repentance
Forgiveness/Return

Roman rule
Cry for deliverance, again

From Ivory Palace
A filthy manger

Pursuit of death exemplified
John 3:16

No greater love
Lay down one’s life

“As Moses lifted up the serpent…”
“…Son of Man must be lifted up”

“Behold the Lamb of God…”
Wages of sin - death

“Father remove this cup…”
“Not My will but Thine”

He is Risen!
Death conquered!

The perfect pursuit
Wages paid in full



Charles Wesley, in his song And Can It Be?, penned this line in the first verse, “For me, who Him to death pursued.”
