Jews and/or Gentiles?

I had overheard some Baptist Pastors and it was news,
Saying that Abraham’s blessings are only for the Jews,
Old Testament books are not for New Testament saints,
Well I am no bible scholar but wrong, like hell it ain’t.

Here is the problem with religion and I find it very odd,
Ministers who speak negative, preach the word of God,
Reading Galatians 3: 6-9 does not the bible clearly state,
Through Abraham God would justify, Gentiles by faith?

Verse 3: 15, “cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree, ”
Redeemed so the blessings will come upon you & me,
The seed cometh to whom, the promise had been made,
Blessings through Jesus are more than just being saved.

Christ healed the soul first because it would never die,
Before the physical body as it would perish that’s why,
Salvation bringing eternity is key do not get me wrong,
But I get so sick & tired of hearing this same old song.

All blessings the Jews had in the old is ours in the new,
Whereas, all means everything and not just one or two,
What’s promised might be given to those who believe,
Open your bible to Galatians, so as to not be deceived.

Now this is a most alarming trait I just find it strange,
Many in the pulpit read the bible then they rearrange,
Inserting personal views, not from verses of scripture,
Why are there so many churches? Look at the picture.

Therefore everybody wants to be, the head not the tail,
Except for those who prefer isolation inside the whale,
Take a look at those trying to take wind from your sail,
Is it possible you can’t, as they were unable to prevail?

Who goes to a buffet, plenty of choices, only pick one?
It’s like salvation, God didn’t say, “that’s it, I’m done, ”
Our Father’s kingdom blessings are like a smorgasbord,
Abraham’s children through faith? We do easily afford.

These promises were spoken to Abraham and his seed,
Rightfully, we have them in our greatest time of need,
No longer from keeping the law but God in His grace,
For everyone alive today and not just the Jewish race.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
