Ye Must Be Baptized Again

Paul met some godly men at Ephesus
Who were disciples of the famous
John the Baptist who baptized Jesus
He dared to correct those baptized thus
He asked if they were Spirit-filled
Filled with incomprehension but not riled
They replied-they knew not He that sealed
But their baptism was only a potent portent
Till Messiah died to enforce His Testament
Thus he re-baptized them in Jesus Name
This invoked His Will and without pause
His promised bequest-the Spirit was allotted
If baptized wrongly by a great preacher
Dip again in the Name of the One Anointed

Are You Buried With Him?

Modern doctrine of Baptism is mainly faction
A sprinkling of fact on largely poured fiction
Here the cart pulls the horse as it ought not
And infants are baptized when they believe not
But as Nicodemus heard baptism is critical
Water’s strait is the gate to the narrow way
It is the first door Peter the Turnkey opened
Missing this means walking in the broad way
We must be buried with Him by immersion
Identifying with His death and effects for us
He was buried as Jesus-so must we be in same
Name – for titles show you know not the boss
Repent first and be baptized next was Peter’s unction
Being buried in Jesus’ Name was the sure conclusion
