TELL ME–WHO WILL STAND IN THE GAP WITH GOD?

Who will stand with God,

Of His righteousness be awed…

Who will stand

Defending this land,

As the Coptic Christians have trod?

If persecuted will you die,

willingly to poke Satan’s eye…

Believers paying

With their lives and praying,

God’s rewards are waiting on high.

STAND—be courageous yet,

Thy salvation don’t forget…

Christ paid for all–

Answer His call–

Rescue His little ones from death!

Why do you wait …for a sign?

March forward to the front line…

Not in your strength

You’ll go the length,

Your soul to your Savior consign.

We battle not with fleshly means,

Although by them our enemy weans…

Many off Christ

By artifice,

Till the lake of fire too many lean.

Stand firm in Christ alone,

Put off no armor at home…

Always be ready

Watchful and steady,

Till Christ has taken you Home!

–Jonathan Caswell

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
