Bible In Poetry: Gospel Of St. John 2 (Chapter 1) - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

The elder to lady, children,
Who love the truth and know it long;
For sake of truth that dwells in us,
And shall be with us forever.

The grace and mercy, peace of God
The Father, and the Son, Jesus
Christ’s truth and love too be with you!

I found thy children walk in truth,
And I rejoice greatly therefore,
As we’ve received the commandments,
From Father, Almighty, Lord, God.

And now, I beseech thee, lady!
I’ve written not a new command,
But that we had from beginning,
That said we love one another.

To love is commandment greatest,
And when we walk in His commands,
It is all love that’s pure, divine,
And hence, we must do from the start.

The deceiver who enters the world,
And says that Jesus was ne’er flesh,
Is deceiver and antichrist!

Take care that we do not then lose,
Those things that we have wrought with toil,
And that we get our full reward.

Whoever transgresses this then,
And doesn’t abide in Christ’s doctrine,
Loses the God of love in him;
He who abides in Christ’s doctrine,
Has Father and the Son as well.

If anyone should come to you,
Without the doctrine of Jesus,
Receive him not into your house,
And neither bid him then, God speed,
For, if you so bid him, then you,
Partake of his evil deeds too.

I have so many things to write,
But I will not with paper, ink;
But want to see you, face to face,
And speak, so that our joy is full!
The children of elect sister,
Greet thee, Amen.

    And this too, is all there in my favorite book.... The one thing i fall down on occasionally now, is to try to love everyone, even my enemies, and yet, lately, honestly i have been praying for them. But He doesn't want us to feel anger towards anybody either, and this, John is so difficult for me, but i am working on it, as i so want to be more llike Jesus Christ, if that is even possible! Am not a fanatic but i have been saved! If i wasn't married, I'd no doubt be a nun. I have been totally changed by Him! A 360 degree change!
