He raises himself up with pride in his heart,
“Who is like me,” he asks,
As he comes riding above the nations,
“Peace, peace,” he calls,
Yet the man of sin,
Is a stench in the Lords nostrils.

He gloats over his enemies,
And has no regard for women,
He walks through the nations and says,
“There is none like me.”

For a time, times and half a time,
So shall it be,
Peace and prosperity will come,
He will enter Jerusalem,
Bowing down in false pretence,
But deceit is in his heart.

Look all you nations,
For the time has come,
An abomination has set itself up,
On the holy hill.

But in a moment it shall be swept away,
For the Lord will come,
Riding the heavens,
A sceptre of judgement in His hand,
And He will trample him in an instant.

All you who trust in the Lord,
Hold fast your faith,
Do not believe the lies that spew forth,
Hold fast your faith,
Bow down and pray,
That it may not touch you.

And the Lord will hear your prayers,
The prayer of the righteous,
And He will deliver you on that day.
Praise the Lord,
Sing forth praises to His holy name,
For deliverance and judgement are in His hand,
On that day.

Who may go up to the holy hill,
Who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who would serve the Lord,
For those who seek after the Lord will find Him.

The decree has gone out,
“Do not be afraid, My children,
Look to Him who saves you,
Stand at the gate posts and blow the trumpet,
And warn my people.”

The day will turn to night,
Darkness, deep darkness will cover the earth,
The stars will fall from the sky,
Yet the Lords Word will stand.

Watch and see the Lords hand do it,
For is there anything impossible for Him,
He searches through all the earth,
For those who would serve Him.

Go up, go up, to the Holy Hill,
Blow the trumpet,
For have not the nations conspired,
Under shouts of  “Peace, peace,”
Yet the day will come,
When Jerusalem is surrounded.

Do not give rest to your voice,
You servants of the most High God,
Call out to the East,
Call out to the West,
Call out to the North and South,
Gather your children, Oh Israel,
And see a marvellous thing.

You will see your God coming,
Mighty is He,
He will strike fear into all your enemies,
And trample them on that day.

The lion will lie down with the lamb
The parched desert will have streams of living water,
Flowing through it,
The hyena and jackal will find rest,
The creatures of earth,
Both great and small will no longer hunt,
And blood will not be shed.

So great is the Lord,
All the earth will praise Him,
The heavens His throne and the earth His footstool,
All creation groans until the day of the Lord.

His word goes forth,
From one end of the earth to the other,
The riders on their horses are loosed,
Great and terrible is the day of the Lord,
He comes to judge,
To call all nations before Him,
Not one can hide.

Do you not know and have you not seen,
The works of His hand,
The stars in the heavens,
The sun and moon to mark the seasons,
And give light.
The rain to water the crops and land.

How is it that you say in your heart,
“There is no God,”
Yet the nations follow their idols,
Yet they curse what they do not know,
And stumble and fall but do not know why.

The Lord will gather them on that day,
And trample them as in a winepress,
Judgement will come to all those who follow after idols,
And say in their heart,
“There is no God.”

But the righteous shall be saved,
They will stream to His Holy Hill,
And bring offerings of thanksgiving and praise,
The highway for the righteous,
And streams of living water will flow there.

He will call you by name,
And set you in high places,
His love will cover you,
And He will gather you in His arms,
You will shine brighter than the stars in the heavens,
And all your ways will be blessed,
Praise and thanksgiving be to our God,
Forever and ever.

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.

1st February 2018

The name of the Lord is to be praised,
For who is like the Lord?
Who removes our transgressions from us,
Though we do not deserve His mercy and grace.
Yet He extends it over all those who seek Him.
Love and faithfulness are His,
A bruised reed He will not destroy.
Compassion and mercy are with Him to give.
Yet the righteous ones shine like stars in the heavens,
Yet a little while and you will enter into His rest.

Rise up, rise up, with thanksgiving and praise,
You who are called in the name of the Lord,
Let your light shine,
You anointed of the earth.
For those who see you will cover their mouths,
No word can harm you,
And no weapon come against you.
The earth will see and fear the mighty ones,
Who come in the name of the Lord.

For the Lord has covered them with strength and power,
To raise up and to lower,
To call forth the Lords hand,
Miracles follow them and power is with them,
To do as the Lord commands,
To speak only what the Lord will put in their mouths,
To the nations.

Look and behold,
And see the mighty hand of the Lord,
His outstretched arm,
To bring the nations before Him in judgment.
Let praise and thanksgiving be on your lips,
Clothe yourself in His strength.
See the Lords hand will do it.
Praise His holy name.

The word has come,
“Come, come out of her my children,”
The great prostitute of the earth is to be judged,
Clothed in scarlet she has deceived,
And lead astray the many.
She has called from the great city,
“Come in here and I will have you worship me,”
Queen of heaven she calls herself.

The nations have fallen under her spell,
She is drunk with power and the blood of the saints,
She has set her heart to destroy the saints,
Those who follow and worship the Lord God Almighty.

Her deeds are wickedness and sin,
She is dressed in scarlet and has raised herself up,
The blood of the saints, millions upon millions,
Will be avenged,
The great city on a hill will be destroyed,
In an instant.

The earth will shake,
And the nations will look in horror,
But to those who are children of the Living God,
To those who worship Him and wait at His door,
Do not be afraid,
For the beginning of these things are but birth pangs.

Those who have gone before,
Destroyed by the great prostitute who calls herself holy,
They are under the throne of God,
Calling to Him, daily,
“When Lord will you avenge?”

She thinks she rides the heavens,
and rules over the nations,
And there is none to come against her.
But our God, The Lord God Almighty,
Will come and trample her in His winepress,
And she will be no more.

Praise and glory be to the Lord God Almighty,
Creator of the heavens and the earth,
the Alpha and Omega,
The Beginning and the End,
Forever and ever.

I lift my voice in praise,
To my beautiful Lord and Saviour.
Who is like the Lord,
slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness and compassion?
King of Kings, I bow down before Him.
The earth is His and all it contains,
The earth is His footstool, the heavens His cloak.

O Jerusalem, O Jerusalem,
Holy and Sacred hill,
Israel, the Lord’s own children,
Lift your eyes and you will see,
The coming of your King.

Watchmen call from the Watchtower,
The nations are preparing for battle,
The hoards from the North,
And from the ends of the earth.

Do not be afraid children,
Call out to your Father,
For He will come,
Riding the heavens.

A great shaking before that day,
But in an instant you will see Him,
And in that day you will know Him,
The one you rejected,
Will be your Saviour.

Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord God Almighty,
Praise Him all you people,
Lift up your voice in praise and thanksgiving,
For there is none like the Lord God,
Our God,
Who is from everlasting to everlasting,
Who knows the beginning from the end,
Who is the Alpha and Omega,
Our God.

16th January 2018

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.

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.

Look, look,
Smoke arises up on the day of its destruction,
Sodom and Gomorrah are destroyed in an instant.
Lot was the only righteous one,
Plucked out and saved.

So it will be in the coming days,
The great city,
That, that has corrupted the earth,
Has been marked.

I was beckoned beside them,
The two angels sent from the Lord.
They were going throughout the city,
Looking for the righteous.
Darkness covered the city,
No lights were there.
Evil dwelt there.

“Come,” they said to me,
“For the time has come, the Lord has sent us.
For this city is like, as in the past, Sodom and Gomorrah.
It has been marked for destruction.”

I called out to the Lord,
“Lord, surely there are some righteous in here.”
And as I looked I saw one light shining forth.
And then I saw one down on their knees praying.
The angels passed by that house.

So it will be,
A time is coming where nations, cities and towns are marked,
O be terrified earth for the time has come.

Light your lamps O you righteous,
For the Lord will see..
Though you are surrounded by darkness,
Yet the Lord will save you on that day.
Prepare your hearts,
Those who are righteous will shine forth,
Brighter and brighter,
Like the stars in the night sky.
They will no longer dwell in the darkness,
But the Lord will be their Saviour.
