| They say that the time of the prophets has come to an end
That men having dreams & visions & revelations is all pretend
They say that no longer does the Spirit of God cause a man to speak
They say that no one can cast out demons or perform miraculous feats.
But the Father would say, to look to His Son
Was He not the most gifted?
Was He not the most prophetic one?
And did He not say, "Greater things than this shall ye do?"
To preach, pray and baptize just names a few
What other things was He speaking of that day?
What were the things that the Scriptures do say?
They shall cast out devils
And speak with new tongues
By the Word of the Father
In the Name of His Son
They shall heal the sick
And raise the dead
Doing signs & wonders is what He said
And so will we choose to believe His words?
Or believe like some others His power has left the earth?
We know that His prophets shall live again
For in Revelation two prophets are seen again
Yet men in their unbelief have them killed and stoned
But God resurrects them; the Hall of Martyrs shall be their home
So, let their words and anointings be judged by Our King
For all men don't see as the Spirit does see
And at the end of all time
What shall it matter what title was thine
Of Apostle, Pastor, Prophet or King
A Wiseman, Gifted One or Revelator of things
What shall matter then is this:
That they brought sight to the blind
Restored life to the lifeless and healings to mankind
They foretold the events of nations and kings
Speaking words of divine wisdom and revelations of dreams
And in the many touched by their words and their hands
God's gifts of the Spirit were delivered unto man.
And if you would ask them they would only say
They wish to follow the path of the Master
And to walk in His ways
For when they do leave this world for a better place
All they long for is to see the Lord Jesus' face
Though men may call them lunatics and crazies
Dreamers and soothsayers, faith healers and fakes
They know that in the end it's what the Lord does say of them
Which will only matter then
For on that day when old things shall pass away
And God does make the earth brand new
Their hearts cry shall be for all of Eternity
That the Master does call them His FriendsThey say that the time of the prophets has come to an end
They say that men being prophets is all just pretend;
But the Father would say
"My Prophets have always been here with men
From the beginning of time and down to the end."
And so, may we stand with the Father this day and say,
"These men are His Prophets, for they walk in His ways!
May we call them by name and welcome them home;
May they no longer be outcasts and wanderers
Without a place of their own."
May we link arms with them this day and reply
"These men are our brothers and for them we'll die!
We here and now accept their visions and dreams,
Their knowings and foretellings and revelations of things.
We desire this day to be one who's named among men
As a friend of the prophets on whom they can depend."
And at the end of all time
When the Lord does ask of how we spent out lifetime,
May we not have to hang our head and say
"We despised your men and servants
For we knew not they were your anointed ones of our day."
But may we be able
To honestly answer and give this reply
"These men were our friends
And we fought by their sides
For we knew them to be of Christ, Our Lord and King,
As we saw in them His smile, His love and tender mercy.
We knew they were called by Our Lord to be His very own,
For His love was in their hearts
And His eyes shone in their own.
We welcomed them into the family
And treasured their gifts as being sent by Our King;
We received their words of wisdom
Their many visions and their dreams
In our hearts we chose to honor them
By the love and thanks we gave as offerings."
For when all this life is over
And when all has been done and said
May we echo the Words of the Master,Welcome home, My dearly loved friends.
