From the Watchtower

As the sun rises and sets,
From one end of the earth to another,
And as the seasons are set that bring springtime and harvest,
So, the season is set in its place.
The Lord Almighty has declared,
The season is ripe for the harvest.

They come from the East,
They come from the West,
They come from the North and from the South,
They pour forth into the holy land,
Sons and daughters returning,
For the word has gone out,
“Return to Me,” says the Lord.

“I will gather you as an eagle,
I will cover you with my pinions,
And once again make my name holy,
Amongst you.”

In an instant you will see,
The one rejected,
And understanding will enter your hearts,
And light will fill the dark places,
You will see Him,
As He comes riding on the heavens,
And on that day,
You will feel remorse for your rejection of Him.

But He will gather you in His arms,
As a Father his children,
He will comfort you,
While He goes through the nations with His winnowing fork,
And once again bring righteousness and justice.

Jerusalem shout out for joy,
Your king comes,
And His arm is with you.
He will trample the nations before you,
And judge them on that day.

Holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,
Praise Him,
From the ends of the earth,
Let all creation praise Him.

I bow down and praise you O Lord,
Creator of the heavens and the earth.
You formed me in my mothers womb,
As clay in the potters hand,
I am fearfully and wonderfully made,
Created in your image,
You put the words in my mouth.

Open up you ancient doors,
That the King of Glory may come in,
Clothed in splendour as the sun,
A sceptre in His right hand,
And dressed for battle.

O Israel see your king,
For He treads the winepress of His anger,
Over the nations of the earth.
Hold fast, hold fast and know that He will come,
For one has set his heart on Jerusalem,
Most holy of places,
Lifting himself up,
He is an abomination and stench in the Lords nostrils.

Let the Holy Ones rise up,
And contend with the nations,
Those who come against the ancient city,
Ready your hearts O Israel,
Mothers hold your children close,
Run, but there is nowhere to run,
Flee to the hills but there is no time,
You will be overtaken.

Gather them in from the nations,
Even from the ends of the earth,
For they will see their Saviour,
Who redeems Israel forever.

Rest in the Lord, all you His children,
Be not anxious or afraid,
For the things of this world are nothing,
They are here today but gone tomorrow.

You who are burdened,
You who are oppressed,
You who are sick,
You who cry daily at His door,
You who struggle and have no money,
Hold fast your faith and trust in Him.

For He is faithful,
He hears your prayers and gathers your tears.
A time is coming and is near,
When you no longer cry or struggle.

Know this, that the Lord is doing a new thing,
He has marked His children,
And they will know His rest.
Enter into His rest,
Be not anxious or afraid.

He will gather you to Himself,
And you will know His presence,
You will know His love, as high as the heavens from the earth,
Forgiveness, He has removed your transgressions,
As far as the East is from the West.

Salvation and blessing are from the Lord God Almighty,
Nothing you do will make Him love you any more than He does already.
Caste your burdens on Him,
And think of them no more.
For He will wrap you with his cloak of love,
He will be your Father,
He is your protection and provision,
He is your healer and will wipe away all your tears.
Rest in Him, all His children.

Is the Sabbath day not Holy?
In six days God created the heavens and the earth,
On the seventh He rested.
The Lord says to His children,
The seventh day is Holy unto Me.
On this day you are to Rest in Me,
If you make the Sabbath day Holy unto Me,
You will seek after Me,
You will do no work on this day,
And My blessings will be upon you.

Seek after Me with all your hearts,
And you will find Me.
Learn my ways and follow in my footsteps,
And you will know the right way,
Righteousness and faith go hand in hand.

Do you not know that faith pleases Me,
Trust in Me with all your hearts,
And be not anxious,
For those that seek after Me and trust Me,
Will never be uprooted.

I will crown you with eternal life,
And you will be in My presence forever.
Do goods in the land and let your light shine.
Trust in Me and have faith,
For I am doing a new thing,
And your faith is counted as righteousness.

Your lamp will not go out in darkness,
But as with the stars of the night sky,
You will light up dark places,
And My Word will go forth to the nations.
