Now I'm going to ask a question, which may seem rather silly, But when it comes to “Christians”, well, just who are we, REALLY?
Because when I look at “The Church” at large, I see a sorry sight! I see a lot of cowardice, where there should be Godly Might!
We call ourselves “Believers” yet we've failed to just Believe. We claim to be His Blessed Ones, But we rarely have Received!
We claim to walk by Faith alone; yet sight is still the king; Our natural ability seems to be our everything!
We Claim to be His Followers, but then we won't get up; His suffering? To die to self? Refuse to drink that cup!
We claim to Be Disciples, yet by HIM we won't be taught! We claim we're called to “fish-fer-men”, but men just ain't being caught!
We claim to be His salt and light, to this darkened, rotting earth, When we've rarely seen a miracle, or been part of giving birth!
We claim to build His Kingdom, but then we refuse to work, We claim to walk in Love, but under pressure we're a jerk!
When will we finally get around to becoming what we seem? When will our business finally be to serve the King of Kings?
When will we shake ourselves awake, from life-long religious sleep, To jump out of the boat with Him, and face storms in the deep?
When will we prove our love to Him, as He has first loved us? When will stop our bickering, and stirring all the fuss!
When will we take His light and love to fallen, hurting, men; And maybe make our Lord and Savior PROUD of us again?
Will we pick up His lovely name, we've trampled in the Mud, Through which we've dragged it on, because we've acted like such duds?
When will we lay our flesh aside and finally, really, be; The people whom He chose to wear His Crown of VICTORY?
I'll tell you when, THE TIME IS NOW! Or we should just prepare to lose. He can not bless a people who refuse to even choose!
He can not lead a people who are blind, confused and lame, Who've pushed away His teaching, and yet try to use His Name!
“Christians In Name Only”, many “CHRINO”'s now abound; Though the field is white with harvest, His true laborers can't be found!
Sound the warning! Break time's done! No more time to hide or shirk! We must receive His power! We MUST Redeem His WORK!
If we're to Join HIM one day, In Eternal Wedded Bliss, There's something that we need to get, and that something is THIS -
Play time is all over now! It's time to rise and shine, put off the shadows of the flesh, the spirit-man refine!
Day is swiftly dawning, in glorious, transforming light! Pushing aside the darkness, we must suit up for this fight!
There's no more time to wallow in our apathy and sin, If we would serve The Master, then we'd best run after HIM!
And, Picking up our crosses, we must then stay the course, Ripping through the Darkness with a Joyful, Mighty, FORCE.
Pulling sinners out of hell, as with Him we march straight through, Healing sick ones, doing ALL that HE's called US to DO!
Then when that day comes – that glorious day - when our LORD does RETURN: He'll say, “Well done My faithful ones”! And we won't have to burn.
But, if we would not burn up then, I'm gonna tell you how, We'd best get off our keesters and START BURNING FOR HIM now!
His Kingdom doesn't succor comfort zones, won't enable self-made “Norms”. The Kingdom will not tolerate our man-made, worthless, forms.
The Master doesn't need our programs, nor “theology”, He is the LIVING WORD! His ANOINTING sets us free!
He's waiting on His troops to suit up, line up, at his Feet! He's waiting on TESHUVAH that's sincere, and all complete!
He's wanting to deliver us! He wants to make us strong! That's what He's been trying to do, folks, by His Spirit, all along!
So WAKE UP PEOPLE! Shake it off! The lazy, sorry, Flesh! Let His Spirit Free us from our self-constructed mesh!
Let's let His fire cleanse and burn, from all our strongholds free - Then Join HIS mighty Army in HIS FINAL VICTORY!
Not just saying we're Believers! But now finally, we've BELIEVED! Not just playing like Receivers, BECOMING people who've RECEIVED!
Not just Claiming the Anointing, Not just going by that Name, But PRESSING through to POWER, TO SHOW THE WORLD HE CAME!
Finally Coming to the Knowledge of HIS Power and His Might! Finally donning all our armor, finally joining HIS Fight;
to Redeem all of Creation, To Perfect His Father's Will! Will we rise to this occasion? Or just be “CHRINO”s still?
