It's Up to You

You’ who have a Holy Bible sitting on a shelve.
Do you read, study, search? For your spiritual selves?
The most given sold book on this earth,
Has been around long before our earthly births.

Two thousand years ago our Savior Jesus was born.
A time when men and woman prayed with incense a Mohr.
A time of loss hope, captivity, oppression, from the Roman army, life was very bleak.
Three men, a star, a vision, a prophecy, fulfilled in Scriptures it was quite a week.

From the start He was a traveler with his mother Mary and father Joseph to Egypt, fleeing from King Herod.
Telling the Holy men he wanted to honor Him, but in reality Herod wanted His head.
The Father always present showed Jesus’ parents the way to safety.
Time of course took its toll, Herod died, Jesus returned home to fulfill His destiny.

Of course all with Bibles know the rest of the story.
Our Savior lived, taught, proclaimed the coming Kingdom, was crucified, and He fulfilled His loving glory.
Death conquered by Christ is a gift to “Us” loves for carnal man that the Father lovingly gives.
A new way, a loving way, a spiritual way given to we to make us spiritually live.

Simple brethren, be vigil, have love for others, you’ll see.
A new horizon given to us by the Father spiritually.
Take your Bible down of the shelf, off the table, study, you’ll get what you seek, the Holy Spirit.
Simply ask God for His forgiveness and His blessings as you study, live by His every word, listening you’ll hear it.

So it’s up to you, this is for you to decide.
Your very existences count on it, or are you going to go along, and toss the dice and let everything ride?
Simply said my brethren shake off the cobwebs, dust off the Holy Bible, read the “Word” have faith, be vigil, and count on Him.
The Holy Spirit, if God wills, will enter into you and Jesus and the Father will thrive, as they lead you to the eternal Kingdom.
