Alas! The Angel of God hovers over us with the jewelled crown, but some are in the parlour eating bread and honey, and others in the counting house raking in the money. "Choked," says Gabriel" choken with the cares and pleasures and riches of the world, and so unfruitful."
"But it’s not the right time for it," urges another. "Is it," answers God, "the time for yout to dwell in your ceiled houses while My kingdom lieth waste?"
SHALL THIS CONTINUE?
God forbid! Let us forsake our dwelling at ease in Zion. The Saviour has unfurled His Blood Red Flag! His true prophets are proclaiming His Jehad and marching to the war. A blessing on those who heed, and enlist, and come to the fight, yea and on those too who burn to come but can’t. And as for those who hear not their Saviour’s call in this His hour of need? Well! May God have mercy on their souls! You hear the call? Your heart burns within you? You seek His service? You long to go to the front? "Yes, anyhow so long as I can get there!" Then come along, enlist at once as one of Christ’s frontiersmen to struggle and fight and pray, to case the works of darkness down and wiin the well-fought day.
–From The Jehad of Jesus
