Biblical Poetry
Early in 2017, I felt prompted by the Lord to start writing Biblically oriented poetry that is intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word. This is something I've never attempted before, but felt very drawn to it by the Lord. In obedience to Him, I have sensed a whole new realm of God's grace as I have begun to write in this way. I hope you enjoy them.

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 wonder.


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 anointing?

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 anointing?


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 coming.

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 light above.


The chosen ones link arms, marching together with one purpose, onward.

They have their own mountains to take as the anointing within thrusts them forward.

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 vision.


On the horizon the anointing within increases as the glory of God begins to settle.

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 voice.

The fullness spoken of in Scripture is evident to all as the anointing comes in full force.

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 stole.

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 tremble.

As God’s word is executed, the day of the Lord is at hand. Who will prevail?
