The Perfect Sacrifice

There were the wood

The knife and the fire

But where was the lamb

For the sacrifice?


A wonder in Isaac’s mind

God will provide

Through you, my son

The Lamb, was the reply


Arriving at the place

Abraham secured his son

On the alter

For his sacrifice


Believing in the resurrection

Of his son to fulfill

God’s promise in His plan

You will be a great nation!


As he raised his hands

To take the life of his son

As God had commanded

Obedience was credited to him


Then a voice from heaven

Changed the direction

And a ram was provided

Ready to take Issac’s place


There, many years later

In the space of God’s time

God offered His only Son

To atone for the sins of mankind


My God, my God

Why have you forsaken me?

So He cried

And laid down His life!


It is finished He cried!

Redemption is sealed

With my blood

My perfect sacrifice!

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
