From The Watchtower

8th February 2018

Praise the Lord all creation,
Praise His Holy Name,
Bow down before the King,
He will gather His children in His arms,
And lead them in His ways,
They will be known among the nations,
As lights unto the world.

His heart delights in His children,
And His arm stretches out to bless them.
His delight is with those whose walk is blameless,
Those who watch at His door daily,
To always walk in His ways,
He searches throughout the earth,
For a heart after His own.

All you shepherds of the flock,
Set your house in order,
For when He comes,
He will recompense all your works.
Look to your flock and give them sustenance.
Do not hide behind platitudes and sweet words,
And yet steal from His people,
Crying out “Bless, bless” while you harbour your greed,
And take from the needy.
You will be accountable on that day.

“Do not withhold what is good,
Walk in My ways and obey My voice,
Set your house in order,
And give to the needy, the orphan and the widow.
Do not gather riches for yourselves,
Serve Me and by serving Me serve My children.

Do not lord it over them,
Or hold yourselves above them.
For a true servant serves below.
Do not withhold My Holy Spirit,
But teach My children to pray.

For surely the days are coming when their faith will be tested,
All you shepherds of the flock,
Stop calling out “give, give and bless, bless,”
While you gather riches for yourselves,
And lord it over My people.

For surely a day is coming and not far off,
When I will recompense all your deeds.
Take heed of these words,
And prostrate yourselves before Me,
Repent and turn back to serve My children.”
