The Contents of the Bible
The Bible contains truths, prophecies,
And God’s message to mankind,
Which could not have been a mere product
Of simply a human mind.
The coming of Christ was prophesied—
Centuries later fulfilled,
As the Lamb of God came down to earth,
In accordance with God’s will.
Known only in this wondrous book,
Is God’s nature and His way,
With His principles to live by
And to shape our lives each day.
Within its pages there is SEED…
With great power to produce,
And in good soil it will spring up
With a new life to induce.
Also, within this book is LIGHT…
To brighten the darkest path,
That souls may see the way to go,
And be delivered from wrath.
Then, within is God’s holy FIRE…
To destroy or cleanse a soul -
Destruction to all who reject,
While all who bow are made whole.
It contains a tool – a HAMMER…
To crush and break the hard heart,
Preparing and softening the soil
For God…His seed to impart.
It is also a two-edged SWORD…
Used as defense and offense -
Protection against Satan’s wiles,
Yet, discerning all intents.
This book is living and active,
And though some have tried to kill,
It still remains alive and well,
And, Praise God…It always will!
"The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God
shall stand forever."
