Can a nation be saved in a moment,
Gather your children, O, Israel,
They come, they are called,
All tribes and tongues,

For I have seen a wondrous thing,
A great basket, filled with abominations,
The great queen who presides,
Sits on this basket,
The great whore of Babylon,
Who has corrupted the whole earth,
Her end is near.

Praise God all you His hosts,
Destruction will come suddenly,
And she will not see it,
Destroyed, she and all her abominations.

The great eagle rises from the ends of the earth
Flying in the heavens,
It lifts the women and the basket up,
And carries it to its destruction.
The queen, who sits over her abominations,
in an instant destroyed,
Swept away into the fires of hell.

And in one day, in an instant,
A Saviour to redeem and save Israel,
Small in the eyes of the nations,
But Gods chosen.

For it is time,
Call them from the four corners of the earth,
North, South, East and West,
They will come,
As lambs to the slaughter, but for the King,
And their eyes will be opened,
They will see their Saviour and King.

The sun rises in its place and sets,
The moon and the tides are set in their ways,
The stars in the night sky to light the darkness,
At the Lords Word all was created.

The Lord calls out to His children
“Cast your burdens on me,
There is nothing new under the sun,
But have I not heard and Have I not seen your tears,
I gather them and store them,
They are precious to me.”

There are those who would thwart justice,
There are those who oppress,
There are those who steal and destroy,
But do you not know,
Nothing is hidden from the Lord.

The leaders are corrupt,
They do not understand,
That there is a day of judgement,
They rise and they fall,
But they are but dust,
The Lord will recompense.

Hold fast your faith,
You children of the Living God,
For days are coming,
When darkness will cover the earth,
And it will seem that evil will prosper.

But know this,
The Lord has set aside His own,
You are not forgotten,
So cast your burdens on Him,
He sees your days as numbered,
But your reward is with Him.

Praise the Lord all you saints,
All His children praise Him,
Lift up your voices and rejoice.
Praise His Holy Name.

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty,
Majestic in all His ways,
Nations will bow down,
All creation sings the praises of the King.

Coming in glory,
And riding the heavens,
O Israel, you will see Him,
Your Saviour and King.

His arm is with Him to do it,
Covering you, O Israel,
His voice has gone out,
To call His children to Him.

From all corners of the earth they come,
They stream from all the nations,
Lost, that they may be found.
Rejoice O Israel,
Your time has come to see your King.

Open up your homes and welcome them in,
For they come as aliens,
To their Holy land.
A gathering so great,
Who has seen such a thing.

The desert highways become streams of living water,
Once you were lost,
But as a Father to His children,
The Lord will make a way.

He will gather you in His arms,
And cover you with His pinions,
He has cried over you for a season,
He has seen your pain and struggle, O Israel.
And now is the time,
In a moment you will see Him.

The nations are in an uproar,
And are gathered against you,
But do not fear, O Israel,
His covenant is with you,
His love never ending.

They will gather on that day,
But the Lord God will fight for you,
A Father to His children,
He will trample those who come against you,
He will cut down the nations that surround you O Israel.

Do not be afraid,
Your God comes riding on the clouds,
When you have given up hope,
Then He will appear.

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.

4th February 2018

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.

Who would do the will of the Lord?
Who can say in their hearts they follow in His footsteps?
Who waits at His door daily for the word of the Lord?
Who goes straight ahead and looks neither to the left nor the right?
Who would put aside their own desires,
And bow down before the Lord God Almighty?
Who would serve the Lord God Almighty?

For your walk will not be easy,
You vessel of the Lord,
Buffetted and battered, like a reed in a storm,
Yet humbly you call out to the Lord,
A light among the nations,
Yet I will draw you out,
Says the Lord God Almighty,
From the ends of the earth.

Before Me, you will walk,
And I will go before you and behind you,
Nothing shall harm you,
Although you are surrounded on all sides by darkness,
Deep darkness covers the earth.
So the Lord God Almighty will be with you.

I have anointed you and set you apart,
For such a time as this,
You will speak my words to the nations,
For I have given you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven,
To speak to the nations,
To uproot and destroy,
You will have power over all the enemy,
And My word will go forth,
And it shall be done,
Says the Lord God Almighty.

Praise you Lord,
Let all creation praise you,
Let your will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven.

Do you not know and have you not heard,
The Lord’s arm is with Him,
To raise up and to lower,
For a little while He will raise what is not holy,
For His good purpose.

He sees the hearts of men,
And knows their schemes,
He rides the heavens,
And looks down from His throne.

They would scheme to raise one above all others,
Peace, peace, they cry,
But wickedness and deceit are in their hearts.
To defraud the oppressed and needy,
To steal from the widow and orphan,
To take away justice,
And change the order of things,
Times and seasons.

The Lord laughs at their schemes,
From His holy place,
For a time, times and half a time,
Prosperity will come,
Then they will devour one another.

Do you not know and have you not heard,
Nothing is hidden from the Lord God Almighty,
He has saved a day,
A day of judgement for the man of sin,
A day of judgement for the nations.

When His arm extends to do it,
Then the righteous will rejoice,
Hold on, Hold on my children,
For the time is close and you will be avenged and see it.

All glory to our God,
Almighty and majestic is He,
Praise Him, Praise Him, all the earth,
For He comes to bring justice and righteousness,
He will do it.
