Click the “Duplicate selected frames” icon on the timeline to create the same amount of frames, as the number of layers in our project.

Select the null frame and hide all layers, except the “Background” layer.

Select the next frame and make only the “Background” and the first text layer visible. Select the next frame and hide the third text layer. In the last frame leave all layers visible. Go to the time line and set the delay time for each frame. For example, half a second.
