Lift Up Your Head
by Mitch Kuhn
Lift up your head, your redemption draws nigh
Fire will come down from the sky
The world is indeed waxing worse and worse
Never before has it been so perverse
Isa 3:4 “I will give children to be their princes, And babes shall rule over them.
Isa 3:5 The people will be oppressed, Every one by another and every one by his neighbor; The child will be insolent toward the elder, And the base toward the honorable.”
Isa 3:9 The look on their countenance witnesses against them, And they declare their sin as Sodom; They do not hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought evil upon themselves.
Men have become women and murder is in the womb
These days will end with destruction of the tomb
We mourn and wail at the sickness in our land
Praise God for removing our homes from the sand
The world will reap just what it has sown
Trees will be known by the fruit they have grown
We who can see the trouble ahead
It is all happening just as we have read
(Luk 21:25 KJV) And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
(Luk 21:26 KJV) Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
(Luk 21:27 KJV) And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
(Luk 21:28 KJV) And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Red sky at night, a sailor’s delight (click to hear Peter’s Song)
Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning.
The sky is red and troubles abound
When Christ returns where will you be found?
Our politicians lie and our riches will fail
Against the powers that be we must not rail
It must come to pass, we must drink the cup
Do not lose heart, lift your head up
The end will come, this we know
If we forget to first look within, we certainly will NOT grow
(Luk 21:32 NKJV) Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place.
(Luk 17:20 NKJV) Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation;
(Luk 17:21 NKJV) nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”
