On the Horizon
By Ken L. Birks
On the horizon comes the flashing
storm clouds, dark and grey.
The Father looks down from heaven above
and sees land so dry.
The storm comes with a vengeance to pour
water on a dry and thirsty ground.
Wth His fist He gathers the clouds
together to send the rain, now found.
The flashing clouds come as a tempest
upon this long awaited day.
On the horizon God’s people await with
hearts filled with anticipation.
They see the dark storm clouds coming
with awe and thunder.
The enemy gathers his forces with one
mind to insult and wreak provocation.
Is this the beginning of the birth pangs
that were foretold so long ago?
As darkness covers the earth, God’s
people begin to arise and shine in
God’s people have been dwelling on a dry
and thirsty ground.
Is this not a time to repent so that the
times of refreshing will be found?
Is this not a time to hew out new
cisterns that will contain His precious
Is this not a time to arise and shine to
prepare for His glory to fill the land?
Is this not a time to ask of the Lord
for rain in the time of the latter
An army comes great and strong putting
to naught the schemes of darkness.
The enemy waits to cast spells of hate
and anger upon those who are following.
They who wait on the Lord renew their
strength in preparation for what is
As praise begins to arise upon those who
belong, they respond in love.
The weapons of hate have no effect as
darkness lifts and gives way to the
The chosen ones link arms, marching
together with one purpose, onward.
They have their own mountains to take as
the anointing within thrusts them
With the noise of a mighty army they
advance in step with one another.
With an ear to the Father’s voice, they
march on, having found their position.
God looks down with great delight and
breathes on them with fierceness and
On the horizon the anointing within
increases as the glory of God begins to
The blind see, the lame walk, the deaf
hear, multitudes are fed without trouble
The rain they asked for comes with full
force as they march on with God giving
The fullness spoken of in Scripture is
evident to all as the anointing comes in
Multitudes upon multitudes now give heed
to the sound of their battle cry.
David of old waited on God, having
lost the lot, he was given instruction
to recover all.
God’s people now go forth in battle
array to recover everything the enemy
Those who cast spells with their hatred
now stand defenseless, drained of color.
God’ s army marches on as the earth
quakes before them and the heavens
As God’s word is executed, the day of
the Lord is at hand. Who will prevail?
