"Between the Passages"
by, Jake Gardner
This is a darkened generation we live in and there is a mountain of apostasy to be overcome if one will stand for the great God and our Lord Jesus Christ in this hour. The need of this day and age is not another acceptable preacher, or silver tongued orator - we need a Phinehas zealous for God's sake again! a Jonathan prepared to break ranks and stem the tide of national apostasy! Away with the meaningless round-table-talks of hypocrites!
Who will be valiant for God in the earth? "Who will go for us?" God asks.
May God help us all, for we live in an hour where the zealous, evangelistic, conservative world is turning coat and deserting the ranks of the persecuted (but not forsaken) army of the Lord Jesus Christ, whole-sale. God help us, and open the eyes of lukewarm, compromised Christianity today!
(Below is a poem titled, "A Lamentation for My Fathers", written with a heart full of love and desire for the spiritual fathers of this generation to return to their sons and be true pastors after God's heart, bringing up their sons in the nurture and admonition of the Lord; even taking them by the hand instructing them through the scriptures, and not cast them away without a proper hearing according the holy obligations of God's written word...)
