I found my soulmates under the Cross : my poem and testimony


 

 
One day, a little maiden cried out in the postmodern barrens;
 
"Dear friends, let us not forget that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life:
 no man cometh unto the Father, but by Him."
 
No sooner had she finished her words than she heard the angry clamor of her fellows,
shouting; O this is an hard saying; who can hear it?
 
"Away with the intolerance!
Away with the religious fanatic!" they roared at her.
 
So she left her fellows and
climbed up the steep path, weeping and lamenting.
 
On top of the hill, she saw the rugged, old wooden sign called the naked truth,
the bloodstained truth of Calvary.
 
Then she heard the Lord's voice; "My daughter, look at the foot of the Cross.
These are my true disciples."
 
There she saw a band of believers whose eyes were constantly upon the Crucified One.
 
The Lord spoke to her again;
 
"My daughter, stay with them under the Cross,
for this is your shelter and your true ecclesia."
 
 
 
 Matt 7:13,14, John 14:6, 6:60, Heb12:2, Heb13:12,13, Mark10:30

  1. Dear Kinuko,
    Thank you so much for writing this poem! I know how you feel.

    Jesus did say: "Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to set 'a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law'; and 'a man's enemies will be those of his own household.' He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it." Matthew 10:34-39

    The truth divides.

    Many want to "unify" the different systems of religious belief, but this isn't possible. The truth of Christ is a sword that divides. Unity with falsehood is not possible. Those of us who walk in light have no fellowship with those who walk in darkness. The division goes as deep as those of our own family, even between parents and their children; or, perhaps members of the same church... Christ WANTS us to be unified as believers--BUT, this unity must be based IN TRUTH. Lies do not unify; they only give a false sense of security, for a time, but the end result is chaos, because lies can never bring freedom, but bondage. And we must NEVER return to a state of bondage. The Lord has set us free from sin and lies, and He wants us to STAY free. And yes, following our Lord on the path of truth and freedom can be lonely. But, just like Elijah who REFUSED to bow the knee to the false god baal, we are not alone, even though it may seem like it: there are thousands of others who have also REFUSED to bow the knee to the false gods of our day.

    You are proving yourself worthy of Christ, Kinuko, as you follow our Savior relentlessly and faithfully. Keep on doing what you are doing!
    Your friend,
    Jessica
