Foes Forewarned

"All the people shouted…  when they praised the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid… and the noise was heard afar off " (Ezra 3:11,13).  "Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping… Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly" (Psalm 6:8-10).  "These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings" (Revelation 17:14). 

Let foes of God be now forewarned: 
His great foundation has been laid,
And every scorner shall be scorned,
Though now they mock Him, unafraid. 

The Lord has heard His praise proclaimed;
He hears the voice of prayerful weeping.
His people's foes shall be ashamed,
For God, though silent, is not sleeping. 

The war shall not continue long
Against our Lord, who is the Lamb,
Though Satan rises with his throng,
He'll fall before the great I AM. 

O Lord, You've drawn aside the curtain;
What clarity Your Word thus brings! 
Let foes now be forewarned and certain: 
You're Lord of lords and King of kings!
