As we enter the New Testament
These twenty-seven books are quite relevant,
That GOD’S HOLY WORD is excellent,
GOD – THE FATHER, CHRIST THE SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT
Are quite prevalent!!!
ST. MATTHEW, ST. MARK, ST. LUKE, and ST. JOHN
Relate the spiritual battle of good versus evil –
These four gospels testify of JESUS’ good news,
With this information, none of us should lose.
The work of the HOLY SPIRIT appears in the book of ACTS
Read how the men of GOD deliver the facts.
Have you received the HOLY GHOST, since you believed?
If you have not, you can freely receive.
Then follows the book of ROMANS
About Paul’s spiritual letter to them – he’s not a showman.
He described powerfully the HOLY SPIRIT vs. the flesh,
They had no excuse to be involved in carnal mess.
When Paul wrote books, 1st & 2nd CORINTHIANS,
Surely, his letters were to saints and not barbarians.
We learn about JESUS’ teaching and GOD’S AMAZING GRACE
Which is more than enough to stay in this Christian race.
Next, Paul appeals in the book of GALATIANS,
The people there required an exorbitant amount of patience.
Instead of the HOLY SPIRIT, they dealt with the flesh,
Paul’s letter to them corrected that mess.
With the book of EPHESIANS
There are many reasons
That Paul’s letter to them
Was for all seasons.
Blessed is GOD who gives us spiritual blessings in heavenly places,
We still have, although, idiotic cases.
When Paul wrote to the PHILIPPIANS at Philippi,
He wanted them to rejoice thereby,
Knowing the ALMIGHTY GOD is nearby.
And to think on those things that are good and pleasant,
To be joyful, and not be depressant.
In the book of COLOSSIANS, Paul wrote to them as well,
He always had spiritual information to tell.
He wrote about seeking CHRIST and those things from above,
That JESUS CHRIST died for us and rose again -this is GREAT LOVE!
1st & 2nd THESSALONIANS,
1st & 2nd TIMOTHY,
These books mention inspiration, and not sympathy.
This always fits in the Christian society,
About the coming of the LORD,
To pray and give thankfulness,
And to always preach GOD’S HOLY WORD.
What a great assignment for one to afford
Paul encourages TITUS as a companion in the LORD
The book’s emphasis was to express Christian duties,
So that there would be no calamities.
The letter of Paul in the book of PHILEMON
About a slave and master relationship – not a heathen.
This proposes a very good reason,
To be received by the church there with grace during any season.
Next comes HEBREWS where we learn more about CHRIST,
We are reminded that JESUS was the perfect sacrifice.
Examples of faith and to follow peace with all men,
This book contains powerful chapters – more than ten.
Then there is the poignant book of JAMES
Which reminds us that faith without works is dead.
Effective and intense prayer from the righteous,
Avails much to be witnessed and spread.
1st & 2nd PETER, a Leader,
1st & 2nd & 3rd JOHN, dearly Beloved,
These books were written by men of GOD.
Exhortations to holiness,
To be followers of CHRIST,
To keep GOD’S WORD,
And to love one another, not strife.
In that tiny book of JUDE,
The ungodly are crude,
The ungodly are lewd,
The ungodly are rude.
Last, but not least, is the book of REVELATION,
Where GOD gave John an elevation,
To reveal to the nations
CHRIST JESUS is coming again is his affirmation.
Whether you’re at home, in an auto, a building, a church, or bus station,
CHRIST JESUS WILL RAPTURE ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE HIS BLOOD RELATION!!!
