The Bevin's Family and the Town - Which Became Born - Again
By Adnan S. Sadduk
I have a friend
Nay! A brother - in - Christ!
He's married with children,
Isaac and Stephen,
And their cute sisters,
Sarah and Dylan
The father, whose name is Denver
And the mother, Caren
Are always the talk of the town!
The pastor of the church,
Along with the congregation members
Hold them dear and never stop
Praising them far and wide!
For their touched by God!
And in them dwells the Holy Ghost!
“Denver! Denver! Would you please?
Come to my house,
And lay your hand
On my dying daughter,
Who's now wriggling on death - bed?"
Pleaded the vicar of the neighboring church,
While a throng of worshippers standing by,
Waiting to touch the fringe of Caren's gown!
A poor, old woman wearing rag,
Shouted in the crowd,
Thou blessed handmaid of the Lord!
Behold my son, my only son!
He's been in pain, acute pain!
For thirteen years in a row!
Stricken with a chronic migraine!"
Touched by the tears of those around,
Pleading for mercy,
For their ailing beloved ones,
Denver and Caren prayed the Lord's Prayer,
And in Jesus Name healed the sick,
And rid them of all their infirmities!
Then ' Hallelujah ' rang in the air!
And the church bells were ringing
And in chorus the whole town
Burst out in doxology;
“Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
Whose mercies surpass every description!
And whose exceeding love covers the earth!
And fills it with joy and mirth!
For humans to rejoice and celebrate!
Isaac, the firstborn son of Denver and Caren,
Was heard singing,
”Father! Our Holy Father!
Anoint me with my brother
Stephen and Dylan, my sister
With your Heavenly Oil
As you anointed father and mother
So that we preach the Gospel!
To foreign lands and remote nations
That are still living in darkness,
Enslaved by sin and fiendish notions!
All of a sudden,
Roared like a lion,
Echoing a voice,
Heralding the imminent coming
Of the Son of Man
Upon the clouds of heaven
Descending with countless
Seraphim and cherubim
That day was a day to remember
For the townsfolk
And the Pentecostal church faithful
‘Cause the Bevins worked miracles
Through the Word of God, Jesus!
But above all, the townies went home
With a new dawn of revelation,
For they became Born - Again!
