NO HOLDS BARRED: THE RESURGENCE

Where did these walls come from?

The era of these holds that barred us is done!

You see....

We have allowed ourselves to get caught up

With tradition

Religion

Formality

And comfortability

Soldiers, stand at attention

Arm yourselves, for this is HOLY war!

For the Kingdom suffereth violence

And we, the violent, take it by force

Where did these walls of religion come from?

The era of these holds that bar is done!

What happened to the spontaneous church of the living God?

Who allowed God to just come in and move in His way?

No need for a preacher to stand in the pulpit all the time!

No need for an agenda to keep us in line!

Yet we follow the same cycle every Sunday

Don’t you think that is why the people of God are tired?

We are stuck to the same old, hence we lost our fire

Pastors welcoming earthly desires

Of money and fame

While the members are dwindling down to the wire

Where did these walls of bondage come from?

The era of these holds that bar us is done!

Why aren’t souls being delivered?

Is it our actions that are shipping them down the river

Our hostility, making those walls they have created thicker

With hatred and pain

Maybe that is why the life expectancy of our youth is getting thinner

Why is the Body of Christ dried up?

But yet it feels as if we have been beaten to a pulp

We have been drugged

By the lush fame

So much that our savour has left us

Where did these walls of compromise come from?

The era of these holds that bar us is done!

But we need a change, a move

To shake us and put us back in the groove

To ween us off of the spiritual booze

And to break down the denominational rules

We cannot pursue God’s glory

If we have strict rules to be holy

Religious barriers around our testimony

And blockages that prevent us from manifesting fully

So cast down all these walls from whence they come

Because the era of these holds that barred us are done!

cazfarrington1: A lovely story that gave hours of reading pleasure. There were many grammatical errors and together with mixed-up words slightly distracted from the overall plot. However, once edited, this book could have much potential. Thank you to the author.

Kiara Smoot: The book was very good. I didn't expect to like it is as much as I did. The plot was very good but there were plotholes. I suggest that the book is given a read. It will make you want to punch the male lead but it is good nonetheless.
