I don’t know how to feel.
Right is wrong
Black is white
Left is right
and nothing is really anyone’s fault anymore.
The criminal is conditioned
the terrorist brainwashed
the murderer sick.
If everyone is sick
then is the well person now considered the one with a problem?
No one is to blame…
except you Believer.
Your love is mistaken for hatred.
your freedom for bondage
your acceptance for intolerance.
And it will get worse before it gets better.
So what do you have to say for yourself, Believer?
If you say nothing you are a coward
If you say something you’re an extremist
You can’t win for losing
so you might as well say what He said.
If you’re gonna go down,
go down with His Words on your lips.
Let your words be bold,
yet uttered with tenderness.
I want to be the Dangerous Christian
the one who talks about Church in the wild
The one who actually acts like she believes what she says she believes,
With a radical faith.
The one who could be convicted and condemned as a follower of Christ.
Because no longer do we have to travel across the world to be persecuted.
We can stay at home
And they’ll throw rocks at our castle
Windows will get busted
Doors will be kicked down
Houses set on fire
Because your light will shine in the darkness
And the darkness will comprehend it not
And it will try to hide from the light.
blaming the light
for illuminating what must be dealt with.
And in all of this I must ensure that when I am hated
that it is for His sake
Not because I am haughty, opinionated,
angry or annoying.
There is no anointing in annoying.
I know how to feel now…
Honored to live now…
Chosen to stand now…
Entrusted with the challenge
of being true to Him.
This is your time Believer!
To be loyal to His Name,
Not just to believe in God,
but to believe Him.
To trust what He said
and you can trust that when you recite His Words
that they will move Heaven and Earth,
they will change HIStory,
they will raise up a standard,
for such a time
