On the Horizon,
They Come Great and Strong

By Kenneth L. Birks


On the horizon, comes flashing storm clouds, dark and grey.
Looking from heaven above, the Father sees land so dry.
In vengeance, a storm comes, pouring water on thirsty ground.
With His fist, gathering clouds together. rain comes, now found.
With Flashing clouds, a tempest comes on this long-awaited day.

Filled with anticipation, God’s people wait in wonder.
As storm clouds release, they stand in awe as He thunders.
Satan gathering forces in one mind, he wreaks provocation.
With darkness covering, God’s people rise and shine in wonder.
Questioning, are these the birth pangs foretold so long ago?

Thirst unquechable, they ask for more for the dry and thirsty ground.
Crying repent, they shout for times of refreshing to be found.
Walking circumspectly, new wineskins, they prepare for His anointing.
Knowing it's time to shine, they prepare for His glory.
Preparing, they ask for rain in the time of  the latter anointing.

Casting spells of hate, Satan comes, lying and destroying.
Great and strong, His army comes, destroying schemes of darkness.
Waiting on Him, strength increases for what’s coming.
As praise arises upon those who follow, they respond in love.
Without effect, weapons of darkness give way to the light above.

The chosen linking arms, they march together in step, onward.
Their own mountains to take, the anointing thrusts them forward.

Like the noise of a mighty army, they advance in step with one another.
An ear to the Father’s voice, they march, having found perfect position.
Looking with delight, He breathes on them, giving fierceness and vision.

On the horizon His anointing increases as the glory of God settles.
The blind and deaf are healed, while multitudes are fed without trouble.
Rain asked for comes in full force as they march, Heeding His voice.
The fullness spoken of evident, the anointing comes in full force.
Multitudes upon multitudes giving heed, their battle cry is heard.

Like David, losing and recovering all, they're told to revover all.
In battle array, they go, recovering all that the enemy stole in the fall.
In hatred, those casting spells stand defenseless, drained of color.
The earth quaking before them, His army marches as the heavens tremble.
Executing God's word, the day of the Lord at hand, they prevail.
