The Birth of Moses

Exodus 1 begins by saying the children of Israel continued to increase after the death of Joseph and his brothers and they filled the land of Goshen.  By that time there was a new Pharaoh in Egypt that did not know Joseph.  The Hebrew word for “know” in Exodus 1:8 is yada.  It has a wide variety of meanings but here it more likely means “acknowledge.”  This man obviously knew who Joseph was.  He just had no regard for Joseph or the laws he had decreed.  The Targum Onkelos is an Aramaic version of the Hebrew Bible compiled from the Second Temple period to the Middle Ages.[1]  It confirms this idea by saying, “But a new king arose over Mizraim who did not hold valid (or confirm) the decree of Joseph.” [2]  

There was obviously something that happened between the time of Jacob’s death and the time when this new Pharaoh arose in Egypt that caused the Egyptians to fear the strength of the children of Israel.  The Targum Onkelos also indicates that this fear was that the Israelites would join their enemies, completely destroy all of the Egyptians, and leave the land.  To keep this from happening, the Egyptians forced the Hebrews into harsh slavery.

The Targum Onkelos also explains that Pharaoh had a dream of a balance scale with Egypt (Mizraim) on one side which was outweighed by a lamb on the other side.   Two chief magicians named Jannes and Jambres interpreted Pharaoh’s dream to mean that a child would be born to the congregation of Israel that would destroy all of Egypt.  For this reason, Pharaoh told the Hebrew (Jehudith) midwives to kill any Hebrew male children when they were born. 

The Targum Onkelos also tells us that Shiphrah was Jochebed and Puah was Miriam.  Since these women feared God and did not obey Pharaoh’s command, he commanded the male babies to be thrown into the river.

Exodus 2 continues by telling us a man of the house of Levi married a daughter of Levi and had a son who was eventually named Moses.  If Moses had an older sister named Miriam and an older brother named Aaron, when would they have been born?  The Targum explains that Amram had previously put his elderly wife, Jochebed away on account of Pharaoh’s decree but that he returned to his marriage relationship with her at this time.  Obviously, Miriam and Aaron were born prior to Amram putting his wife away.

Miraculously, once they were reunited, a male child was conceived and later born.  He was hidden three months but it eventually became necessary to obey Pharaoh’s command and put him in the river—but he was put in an ark or basket that had been sealed with tar and pitch (bitumen) so that it would not leak but float.

As we consider this historical account, isn’t it interesting to realize how numerous children died in the river just like many people died in the flood that covered the whole earth during the time of Noah?  At the same time, God in His mercy and grace allowed this child to survive in an ark that was miniature in size compared to the one built by Noah.

Many years later, another child – one of Noah’s descendants would die for the sins of the world; however, at this point in time, the baby in the little ark would be a type of Jesus (Yeshua), the Promised One to come.

Miracle upon miracles, this baby who was hidden for three months was found by Pharaoh’s daughter, lifted up out of the water, and saved from certain death.  It is awesome to realize that the Son of Man was also lifted up onto a cross, His dead body was hidden in the grave for three days, and it was raised up from the dead so that anyone who desires can experience God’s mercy and grace and escape eternal death if they choose His way instead of their own.

Time is running out.  The pattern of the Exodus may have already begun in our time.  You must decide to stay in Babylon the Great or come out of her.  What will you do?



    Surely, all of the Word, both Old and New, must be fulfilled and all things restored. See how It ties Zerubbabel, John, and Elijah together…Old with the New. Let us read and see.

    Now we know that Moses was a great prophet chosen by the LORD to deliver the children of Israel from Egypt.

    Acts 7:35 (NKJV) – “This Moses whom they rejected, saying, ‘Who made you a ruler and a judge?’ is the one God sent to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the Angel who appeared to him in the bush.”

    Did you know there comes one who shall deliver the children out of Babylon? Moses spoke of one to come like him to come.

    Deuteronomy 18:15-16 (NKJV) – “15 “The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear, 16 according to all you desired of the LORD your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’ ”

    This deliverer like Moses must come for the Lord waits for restoration.

    Acts 3:19-22 (NKJV) – “19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, 21 whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. 22 For Moses truly said to the fathers, ‘The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear in all things, whatever He says to you.”

    Notice that verse 21 states “…whom heaven MUST receive UNTIL the times of restoration of all things…” Now we must remember our Lord Jesus spoke of a future prophet coming who “will restore all things.” This is immediately corroborated in verse 22 which speaks of that prophet.

    What does this prophecy have to do with “Zerubbabel”, “Elijah” and “John” and the “two witnesses” you ask? Let’s read.

    In Haggai 2:18-23, Zerubbabel is “chosen” to be like God’s signet “in that day”. This prophecy is yet to be fulfilled. Now we know that the Word does not return void. So, who will fulfill this prophecy? I would like to start by posing some questions.

    1) Why is it that a man named “Zerubbabel” holds the measuring line for the temple in Zechariah 4:9-10, however it is a man named “John” who holds the measuring line for the temple in Revelation 11:1-2?

    2) Why is it that a man named “Zerubbabel” is given authority before kings in Haggai 2:20-23, however it is a man named “John” who is given authority before kings in Revelation 10:11 ?

    3) Why is it that a man named “Zerubbabel” is the person spoken to/of in Zechariah 4 where the two olive trees are mentioned, however it is a man named “John” who is spoken to/of in Revelation 11 where the two olive trees (two witnesses) are mentioned?

    Same prophecy but different names! Why? More questions first.

    4) Why did the angel Gabriel give the name of “Jesus” to Mary’s child when Isaiah gave His name as “Immanuel”, and why did Gabriel give the name “John” to Elizabeth’s child when no one in the family had that name?

    5) In the prophecy of “Joshua and Zerubbabel” in Haggai and Zechariah, why is “Joshua” the high priest crowned BEFORE “Zerubbabel” who is to become God’s signet “IN THAT DAY”?

    6) In John 21:20-25, why did the Lord say of “John”, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.”? Unless a person believes our Lord said things just to be saying something, then there must be a deeper meaning in what He said and wants us to know something.

    7) Why was “John” told to prophesy AGAIN in Revelation 10:11?

    My questions above mentioned two different men with the same name of “John” (the Baptist and the Disciple). Why did the Lord keep pointing to the name “John”?

    Now we know that names have meaning. Just like the name of Immanuel (Emmanuel), so does the name of Zerubbabel.

    The name Zerubbabel means “the one sown of Babylon” or “seed of Babylon” referring to a child conceived and born in Babylon.

    Since Zerubbabel did not fulfill all of the prophecy concerning him in Haggai and Zechariah., that means it is yet to be fulfilled. If you accept that the prophecy of “Joshua and Zerubbabel” was a symbolic prophecy in which Joshua and Zerubbabel where SYMBOLIC of two men who would come later in the future to fulfill the prophecies spoken of them, then it starts to make sense. Let me explain.

    The meaning of Zerubbabel’s name will help explain this. The one who fulfills the prophecy concerning “Zerubbabel” is a child born in END-TIME Babylon. The name of the child is _________! Jeremiah and Isaiah will corroborate this. According to Isaiah, his name has been “mentioned” before. Also, he is referred to as the “chosen man” from Babylon of Jeremiah 50.

    Jeremiah 50:44-46 (NKJV) –
    “44 “Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the floodplain of the Jordan
    Against the dwelling place of the strong;
    But I will make them suddenly run away from her.
    And who is a chosen man that I may appoint over her?
    For who is like Me?
    Who will arraign Me?
    And who is that shepherd
    Who will withstand Me?”
    45 Therefore hear the counsel of the LORD that He has taken against Babylon,
    And His purposes that He has proposed against the land of the Chaldeans:
    Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out;
    Surely He will make their dwelling place desolate with them.
    46 At the noise of the taking of Babylon
    The earth trembles,
    And the cry is heard among the nations.”

    Notice the “chosen man” must “draw them out”. Why? Because Babylon is to be utterly destroyed. He is a prophet like Moses who is chosen by our Lord, the Redeemer of Zion, to lead/deliver the remnant of the children of God (Zion) out of Babylon because Babylon is to be destroyed. Where is Zion at the end of the age? She is in Babylon, and it is from there to she is to be delivered!

    Micah 4:10 (NKJV) – “10 Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, Like a woman in birth pangs. For now you shall go forth from the city, You shall dwell in the field, And to Babylon you shall go. There you shall be delivered; There the LORD will redeem you From the hand of your enemies.”

    Zechariah 2:7 (NKJV) – “Up, Zion! Escape, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon.”

    Romans 11:25-27 (NKJV) – “25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:
    “The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
    And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
    27 For this is My covenant with them,
    When I take away their sins.” ”

    Isaiah 59:20 (NKJV) – “20 “The Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” Says the LORD.”

    Notice that Isaiah 59:20 says “The Redeemer will come to Zion” but Romans 11:26 says “The Deliverer will come out of Zion”.

    Why? The Lord our Redeemer chooses the deliverer. Moses was a deliverer. The child born in end-time Babylon named _________ will be a deliverer!

    See! Our Lord Jesus (Joshua in English) sits at the right hand of the Father crowned with majesty, glory, and authority as a High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek …WAITING FOR RESTORATION AND FOR HIS ENEMIES TO BE MADE INTO HIS FOOTSTOOL!

    Hebrews 7:11-19 (NKJV) –
    11 Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be called according to the order of Aaron? 12 For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law. 13 For He of whom these things are spoken belongs to another tribe, from which no man has officiated at the altar. 14 For it is evident that our Lord arose from Judah, of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood.[a] 15 And it is yet far more evident if, in the likeness of Melchizedek, there arises another priest 16 who has come, not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to the power of an endless life. 17 For He testifies:
    “You are a priest forever
    According to the order of Melchizedek.”
    18 For on the one hand there is an annulling of the former commandment because of its weakness and unprofitableness, 19 for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.”

    Hebrews 10:11-18 (NKJV) –
    “11 And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, 13 from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. 14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.15 But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before, 16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” 17 then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” 18 Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.”

    Who will help in “restoration” and making His enemies into His footstool? The child born in END-TIME Babylon whose name is _________! It will be clear when you hear it.

    Again, our Lord pointed to the name several times. The Lord Jesus spoke of a prophet coming to “restore” all things in the future even though John the Baptist was revealed as coming in the spirit and power of Elijah but was rejected. Furthermore, in Isaiah 49 there is a “hidden” servant prophesied as coming to “restore” and his name has been “mentioned” before.

    Isaiah 49:1-2 (NKJV) –
    “Listen, O coastlands, to Me,
    And take heed, you peoples from afar!
    The LORD has called Me from the womb;
    From the matrix of My mother He has made mention of My name.
    And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword;
    In the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me,
    And made Me a polished shaft;
    In His quiver He has hidden Me.”

    Isaiah 49:6 (NKJV) –
    “Indeed He says,
    ‘It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant
    To raise up the tribes of Jacob,
    And to restore the preserved ones of Israel;
    I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles,
    That You should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.’”

    Matthew 11:13-15 (NKJV) – “13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. 14 And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who is to come. 15 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

    For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

    This was true then and it must be true at the end.

    until – up to (a particular time); used to indicate the time when something will happen, become true, etc.

    Since there are two more prophets in Revelation, that means one of them must be named __________.

    Revelation 10:11 (NKJV) – “And he said to me, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings.” “

    Wow! That sounds like “John” is given great authority before the world! Wait a minute! The same was said of Zerubbabel.

    Haggai 2:20-23 (NKJV) –
    “20 And again the word of the LORD came to Haggai on the twenty-fourth day of the month, saying, 21 “Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying:
    ‘I will shake heaven and earth.
    22 I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms;
    I will destroy the strength of the Gentile kingdoms.
    I will overthrow the chariots
    And those who ride in them;
    The horses and their riders shall come down,
    Every one by the sword of his brother.
    23 ‘In that day,’ says the LORD of hosts, ‘I will take you, Zerubbabel My servant, the son of Shealtiel,’ says the LORD, ‘and will make you like a signet ring; for I have chosen you,’ says the LORD of hosts.” ”

    Great authority is given to Zerubbabel/John…LIKE A ROD OF IRON! Why? He and another (two witnesses) will need it to convince the kings of the earth to submit their kingdoms to the coming Kingdom of God and the return of His Son the Christ, The King of kings and Lord of lords! If the kings of this world refuse, they will be considered the enemies of Christ, and the two will call down plagues on them.

    Revelation 11:6 (NKJV) –
    “6 These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.”

    Now it makes sense. One name will make several prophecies come true. The name of the child born in END-TIME Babylon is……John!

    Another man named “John” is chosen and comes in the spirit and power of Elijah at the end of the age and will fulfill the unfulfilled prophecy concerning Zerubbabel. Not the same flesh as the John’s (the Baptist, the Disciple) before him but the same Spirit. This “John” will be a physical being filled with the same Spirit, but he will not be a reincarnation of John the Baptist or John the Disciple. Did not Elisha receive a double portion of Elijah’s Spirit even though Elisha himself was a physical being and died? Yes he did!

    Don’t forget what is spoken to the churches in Revelation! Listen carefully. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

    Numbers 11:17 (NKJV) – “Then I will come down and talk with you there. I will take of the Spirit that is upon you and will put the same upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, that you may not bear it yourself alone.”

    1 Corinthians 12:11 (NKJV) – “But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”

    Zechariah 4:6 (NKJV) – “6 So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts.”

    Revelation 1:9-10 (NKJV) – “9 I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet,”

    Furthermore, since John the Disciple was one of the three (Peter, James, and John) who saw and recognized Moses and Elijah with our Lord at the transfiguration (see Matthew 17), wouldn’t John have identified the two witnesses in Revelation 11 as being Moses and Elijah if they are indeed to be the two witnesses? After all, John knew what Moses and Elijah looked like.

    Matthew 11:13-15 (NKJV) – “13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. 14 And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who is to come. 15 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

    Therefore, the prophecy concerning Zerubbabel is to be fulfilled by a “chosen man” named “John” who was to come AFTER our Lord Jesus (Joshua) had ascended to His throne in Heaven sitting at the right hand of the Father as a High Priest crowned with authority, power, and majesty waiting for restoration.

    Matthew 28:18-20 (NKJV) –
    “18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.”

    “John” will be the prophet like Moses who comes at the end of the age. “John” and his brother (two witnesses), just like Moses and Aaron, will lead the children back to the land promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and restore Israel and the covenant.

    Moses led the children out of Egypt.

    “John” (in the spirit and power of Elijah) will lead the children out of Babylon.

    Matthew 17:3-4 (NKJV) – ” 3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. 4 Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”

    Matthew 17:10-13 (NKJV) – “10 And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?” 11 Jesus answered and said to them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things. 12 But I say to you that Elijah has come already, and they did not know him but did to him whatever they wished. Likewise the Son of Man is also about to suffer at their hands.” 13 Then the disciples understood that He spoke to them of John the Baptist.”

    Everything prophesied of Zerubbabel”, “John”, and “Elijah” must be fulfilled for the Word is faithful and true and will not return void.

    Luke 1:15-17 (NKJV) – “15 For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb. 16 And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. 17 He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

    Malachi 4:4-6 (NKJV) – “4 “Remember the Law of Moses, My servant,
    Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel,
    With the statutes and judgments.
    5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
    Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
    6 And he will turn
    The hearts of the fathers to the children,
    And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
    Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”

    At the end of the age, this “John” will lead the the children of Israel back to the land promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and restore all things.

    Deuteronomy 5:2 (NKJV) – “The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.”

    Micah 7:15 (NKJV) – “15 “As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt,
    I will show them wonders.”

    Isaiah 11:11 (NKJV) – “11 It shall come to pass in that day That the LORD shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left, From Assyria and Egypt, From Pathros and Cush, From Elam and Shinar, From Hamath and the islands of the sea.”

    Jeremiah 16:14-15 (NKJV) – “14 “Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says the LORD, “that it shall no more be said, ‘The LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,’ 15 but, ‘The LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers.”

    And many of the children of Israel will “John” lead back to the Lord their God and the land promised to their fathers – Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

    Here we go…AGAIN!

    Ecclesiastes 1:9-11 (NKJV) –
    “9 That which has been is what will be,
    That which is done is what will be done,
    And there is nothing new under the sun.
    10 Is there anything of which it may be said,
    “See, this is new”?
    It has already been in ancient times before us.
    11 There is no remembrance of former things,
    Nor will there be any remembrance of things that are to come
    By those who will come after.”

    Are you ready to see Horeb, the mountain of God, as did our fathers? Are you ready to see many wonders?

    The Second Exodus will soon begin!



    His name is a form of the Hebrew name John. His mother’s name is a form of the Hebrew name Elizabeth. He was born on Whirlwind Road (Zip Code 37743) on the 24th of December of 1967 which is the year that Israel captured the Temple Mount. 2 Kings 2:11 (NKJV) – “Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.”

    His mother’s maiden name is Malone. Malone is a family name from the Irish “Mael Eòin” of which the name means a servant or a disciple of Saint John.

    “Mael” is an old Celtic name from Ireland, Wales and Brittany. The French masculine name of Breton origin meaning “chief, prince.”

    “Eoin” is an Irish name, cognate with John. In the Irish language, it is the name used for all Biblical figures known as John in English, including John the Baptist and John the Apostle.

    He had to be “hidden” until he was called by the Lord to “Arise!”. We know what the evil rulers did during the infancies of Moses and Jesus. They ordered children to be killed. This “John” is someone….UNEXPECTED. Thus he had to be “hidden” until the day came.

    How do I know this you ask?

    My name is…John! The Lord Jesus appeared to me and said “Arise!” and showed me the scar on His left hand from which judgment comes.

    The Seven Thunders spoke, “My patience has died and the children are far away. Time to gather the grapes for the winepress; time is up. I will not tarry much longer!”

    Habakkuk 2-4 (NKJV) – “2 Then the LORD answered me and said:
    “Write the vision
    And make it plain on tablets,
    That he may run who reads it.
    3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
    But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
    Though it tarries, wait for it;
    Because it will surely come,
    It will not tarry.
    4 “Behold the proud,
    His soul is not upright in him;
    But the just shall live by his faith.”

    Hebrews 10:36-39 (NKJV) –
    “36 For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:
    37 “For yet a little while,
    And He who is coming will come and will not tarry.
    38 Now the just shall live by faith;
    But if anyone draws back,
    My soul has no pleasure in him.”
    39 But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.”

    Revelation 22:8-11 (NKJV) –
    “8 Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. 9 Then he said to me, “See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.” 10 And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”

    Blow the trumpets across the earth and the nations
    Time to rally to your battle stations
    Awaken one and all from your slumber and Arise!
    Lest you sleep in blindness and meet your demise
    Take the worldly scales from your eyes so you can see
    Behold, He comes quickly!
    Don your helmet, grab your shield, take hold of your sword
    It is time to make way for our Savior, King, and Lord
    Mount up on mighty stallions and steeds
    And for the Lord do great exploits and deeds
    Satan has been cast down by Michael from the heavens on high
    He rages like a dragon who likes to murder and lie
    Now he runs to and fro the earth to destroy you
    O Lucifer knows his time is short! Hallelujah!
    Satan and his army will ride about to devour
    But we dear children of God have the Lord’s great power
    Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might
    Pray without ceasing both day and night
    The angels of high and the shepherds of low rejoiced at His birth
    Soon His footstool will be His enemies and the earth
    Now you know our Lord Jesus Christ and His story
    Soon He returns on clouds with great power and glory
    But certain things must come to pass before His return for us
    Have faith and put on your breastplate of righteousness
    Shine! Shine! Shine! Let your light shine brightly
    A light in the world of darkness for all to see
    Let your faith not be a burning ember but let it be a raging fire
    Peace, strength, and love for all to aspire
    The Lord said, “Behold, I send my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me.”
    I am John, and a messenger of the Lord I shall be
    For the Lord Jesus came to me to and said “Arise!”
    And showed me the scar on His hand before my very eyes
    Then an angel in the night proclaimed His glorious return to me
    So shall I arise for my Lord and thee
    Now raise your voices with heavenly praise for Him to hear
    For the day of His glorious return is near
    I am John, and a messenger of the Lord I shall be.
    Behold, He comes quickly!
