Christ comes in His glory His own to take,
Snatch to bliss eternal that knows no ache!
His, earnestly for the faith contending;
The appointed good-fight-of-faith heeding;
Those holding fast Precious, Most Holy Faith:
These His priceless jewels whom He creates,
And made fit, for ďthe City that makes GladĒ,
Fit for His Marriage Supper with His Bride!
Supper without the Enemyís presence,
These, now, like the angels in every sense!
Getting comfort-rest, prepared for earthís rule,
For comes He back with these saints earth to rule,
With them to execute judgment on earth,
And in peace, righteousness govern the earth!
First, breaks He them with a rod of iron;
Dashes in pieces like a potter's pot.
Be wise now and then therefore, O ye kings:
Be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Serve the Lord with fear, rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest He be angry with you,
And ye perish from the way in His wrath,
ĎCause His wrath will be kindled a little.
Blessíd are all they that put their trust in Him.
For it shall come to pass in the last days,
That the Mountain of our very Lordís House
Shall be set up on top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow unto it then.
People, many, shall go and say, Come ye,
That the mountain of the Lord we should go,
Even the house of the God of Jacob;
And He will His ways teach us all (clearly),
And that we will walk in His paths (of life):
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
The Word of the Lord from Jerusalem!
And among the nations shall He be Judge,
And He shall rebuke many people then:
And they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
And their many spears into pruning-hooks:
Nations will not sword use against nations
Neither shall nations learn war anymore!
World peace ONLY NOW would it be achieved:
For Godís Knowledge shall fill all lands and seas
As our waters covers our very seas.
Jerusalem, now is, shall be rebuilt
For, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God,
That the City shall be built to the Lord
From Hananeelís Gate to the Cornerís Gate
And the measuring line shall yet go forth
Over against it upon Gareb hill,
And shall compass about unto Goath.
And the whole valley of the dead bodies,
And of the ashes (as well on that day),
And all the fields to the brook of Kidron,
To the Horse Gateís corner toward the east,
Shall be holy unto the Lord (of Lords);
No bit of it shall ever be plucked up,
Nor speck thrown down any more forever!
And world Headquarters shall it be thenceforth.
The Lord shall then Rule Lord of lords henceforth,
And Sits and Reigns from His throne King of kings;
With the redeemed jewels as lords and kings!
Him shall they worship; serve in the nations:
For Him they would act for in the nations,
Their jurisdiction Jesus defining!
See why Satan, the nations are raging?
O what great millennium under Him!
Though great peace, bliss unspeakable by Him,
Thatís short-lived; yes, a thousand years fleeting!
For now bliss eternal soon ushers in,
Cause Holy Jerusalem He comes with
From Heaven to earth, now made set for it;
Being one goal of Christís millennial rule,
For earth needs be rid of all that hell pulls!
Then comes the City of God from our God,
With Mansions Sublime prepared by the Lord!
Twelve Pearly Gates named after the New Twelve,
Twelve decked wall bases after the Old Twelve;
Bride adorned beyond words for her Husband;
Place the Shepherd leads with eternal Arms!
With Streets made of gold, even purest gold!
For waiting bliss: saints, be not lukewarm, cold!
O Zion of God, that bears Throne of God!
Thou ever Pure and Holy with the Lord!
How canst Thou dwell with beings now impure?
O! The Blood of Jesus now makes them pure!
Hence, those hitherto of decaying clay,
With immortal bodies that City stay,
And with glorious frame approach Godís Seat!
To Worship our God Who on His Throne sits!
O this Beautiful Mount Zion to live,
Godís Seat to approach, they who earth once lived!
Godís Great Grace, Love; Merciful, Faithful deeds,
And Great Might and Powír that sets free indeed,
What tongue of mortal can well convey!
And what man among mankind can relay!
This hitherto worms now immortal: may!
For now perfected, glorified they may
GRACE story learn and tell eternally,
The Cross their memory filled endlessly!
And ever living holy unto God
Whilst the Devil that deceived all the world
Assigned to prison of eternal fire,
His spirits, demons with him in that fire!
But O for the much of humanity,
Those with him would be all eternity,
Who did in the broad-way Satan followed!
For these folks, methinks the saints tears may know!
And this beside tears of labor for God,
Which shall all be wiped away by The Lord!
So, while breath and time still we may have now,
The Great Commission we MUST OBEY NOW;
With holy lives, holy works as lifestyle;
Written epistles nicely read by all;
And Truth, Sound Doctrine held fast, reaching out;
Then unfeigned love for those within, without:
If, perchance, the Lord will some captives save,
Some of these saved or called finally saved!
