Whose Church Is This?

Whose Church is This ?

Pray, please join the harvest, for the laborers are few,
Will Yah look for another group, or will He choose you?
Will you become like Abraham and offer up on high,
The sacrifices desired of you –the price He may require?

And Yet…

There’s a price to pay in giving, that others may receive,
And it’s evident in who follows – compared to those who’ll lead.
Giving an account is easy when facing your fellow man, 
But, when facing the King of Glory, on whose account will you stand?

But Still…

Programs and performances and individuality get in our way.
Forcing out His Spirit – “Do your own thing” becomes the mainstay.
Lukewarm and complacent, “We will fulfill our own desires!”
“Let’s build again the Golden Calf – Let’s offer up strange fires!”

And Yet…

What about the promises of the Days of Latter Rain,
When Yah restores The Glory and Pours His Spirit on every man?
And What about True Holiness through trials and persecutions,
With Spirit-led lives of prayer & fasting and True Word set in motion?

But Still…

There are those who’ll scoff and scratch their itching ears.
Heaping to themselves teachers – True ‘Fat Calves’ forgetting lean years’.
And now upon the portals of this place called HOUSE OF GOD,
Will it be the name Beth-El – or is it ICHABOD?
