Story

I was visiting Metropolitan CME Church in Cleveland, OH. in July 1985 on their youth day. And one of youth choir presentations was to sing the books of the bible. I was so motivated by their presentation, that when I got back to my church in KY, I was determined to rhyme the books of the bible, so my young people would have an easier time learning them. After a few months of struggling with the titles, I shared the final product with my youth and they all told me it sounded like a rap, and that's how I got nicked named Rev. Rap'.

Lyrics

(1) (BOOKS OF THE BIBLE (4:52)

Verse

MOST OF YOU RAPPERS THINK YOU'RE THE BOSS, BUT CAN YOU WALK MY WALK AND TALK MY TALK? YOUR WORDS ARE FULL OF CLICHES AND FULL OF JIVE. JESUS SAID HIS "ARE SPIRIT AND HIS ARE ALIVE”. 1 YES! THERE'S POWER IN HIS WORD, THAT FILLS THE SOUL; BUT NOT THE HOOGY-BOGGY TYPE, THAT SPARKS YOUR TOES.

SO BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN JESUS CHRIST. DO YOU KNOW THE WORD AND DO YOU KNOW IT RIGHT! YEAH, YOU CLAIM TO BE A CHRISTIAN, YOU SAY YOU'RE ALL THAT! WELL.TURN TO OBIDIAH, YOU SAY ‘WHERE'S IT AT?" “IS IT IN THE OLD TESTAMENT OR IN THE NEW?" "WHY I WANT EVEN LOOK, I AINT NO FOOL.

HOW CAN YOU LOVE THE LORD, AND NOT READ HIS WORD, AND CALL YOURSELF A CHRISTIAN? WHY THAT'S ABSURD. YOU SEE THE LORD HAS A NAME FOR FOLK LIKE YOU WHO JUST TALK THAT TALK, BUT NEVER DO THE DO. (Hypocrite) IF YOU WANNA BE A WITNESS AND YOU WANNA TESTIFY, YOU NEED TO OPEN HIS WORD, YOU NEED TO OPEN YOUR EYES. NOT JUST THE EYES IN YOUR HEAD, BUT THOSE IN YOUR HEART. SO LEARN THE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE. YEAH! THAT'S A GOOD START!
