Spirit Leads To The Water

Cornelius and friends received the Spirit
After which the preacher – Peter now said
Water baptism was the next meal of Bread
Cornelius did not demur or murmur or dread
For Spirit feeds on every crumb of the Word
And strains to fulfill all sayings of the Lord
Same Spirit led Philip to Ethiopian Eunuch
Puzzled by Isaiah’s prophecy about Messiah
Philip expounded till the noble demanded
Immediate action-immersion for remission
No ceremony for Spirit was in harmony with Word
It behooves the Spirit-led man or woman today
To turn the Chariot of faith to water’s strait gate
The contrary is backing a wrong horse off course

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
