-Becoming a Prophetic People
15 Therefore, “they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence. 16 ‘Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat down on them,’ nor any scorching heat. 17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’”
The Living One and Lord of all
Holds power transcendent and so vast
It either appalls or enthrals.
For God, right now, is preparing an army
Of conquerors with exceptional worth,
They are the ones who will rule in Eternity
Having served their apprenticeship here on earth.
Overcomers, through the blood of the Lamb,
Ruling with Jesus in his heavenly program
Called to suffering, like the Suffering One,
Called to renounce all other claims,
Called to show the authority of the Son,
Called to mission to proclaim his Name.
This high and noble and dignified calling
Beyond all other claims, enthralling!
It’s the Church, Christ’s Body, his precious people
Who constitute this company, anointed and free.
“Who are these?”, the Elder asks John the apostle,
As they see and assess a vast dynasty,
The angel himself answers with bold clarity,
A people who are destined for co-regency!
Those who gain triumph in tribulation,
Those who are cleansed by the blood of Jesus,
Those who alone can give true veneration
To Jesus the One who is Matchless.
The overcomers by means of their victories
Share Jesus’ authority as his beneficiaries
Are we his people for this crisis hour?
Do we discern his sovereign plan?
Are we living under Holy Ghost power?
Are we transcending our culture’s life-span?
Let’s be his end-times people of power!
May we arise with a new anointing
So that in zeal and holiness this hour
We prepare for the Day of his appointing
