(Ezekiel 37: 1-3, Matthew 24: 32-34, Acts 2: 19-20)
Sights in the sky and signs below
Will show us when the time is near
Like a fig which starts to bloom
His coming, finally, will be here.
Ezekiel saw a heap of bones
Piled deep in valley land
And beloved Israel transformed
Deftly by the Maker’s hand.
God bringing back the lifeless limbs
Breathing Spirit through them then
A nation, home, in her own land
A force to reckon with again.
Should we fear? Our Shepherd King
Ever watching over all
Has told us that the final days
Will signal Satan’s second fall.
God loved so much He gave His Son
Who rescued us from sin and Hell
End times began as He left Earth
And rose to Heaven where He would dwell.
The reasons we can’t understand
But trust God to direct, and show
Christ’s return, when He will face
One last time the heinous foe.
Our Father controls — be confident
We will see what’s been His plan
Know Israel is a part of it
Do your best, because you can.
Keep His commands, show His love,
Spend all your minutes in His light
Run from darkness, and like Israel
Own always the courageous fight.
