Posts Tagged ‘BORN – ONCE or TWICE’

There are no human births in heaven

Nor are humans born in hell.

There were no humans born on the boat

Which road Noah’s flood so well.


Eight souls walked up the plank

(Which probably was the door.)

And eight souls came back down it

Not one less; and not one more.


God provided natural “birth control”

To the wives of all Noah’s sons;

Likely the only time fertile couples

Went a year not birthing little ones.


Earthlings are born to earthlings

Here upon earth’s broad face

Increasing the population census

For God’s entire, most special race.


Here’s the place and now’s the time,

For man’s timely reproductions.

One plus one equals three (or more)

Is a this-world, this-era, deduction.


Likewise earth is God’s place

For mankind to be re-born,

Sometime after common birth

Yet prior to death – sin’s last big thorn.


You (and I) were born in this world

Of that there’s no reason to doubt.

But have you been born again?

That’s what Christ’s death is all about.


We had no control o’er our first birth

But being re-born in all our choice,

After Christ provided redemption’s plan.

Come. Confess. Believe Him and rejoice.
