Prophetic Proof

"The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein" (Psalm 111:2).  "Train up a child… Have not I written to thee excellent things… that I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?" (Proverbs 22:6,20,21).  "They that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew Him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every Sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning Him" (Acts 13:27). 

The works of God are great indeed
Which prophets said that He would do,
Providing all the proof we need
That every word of God is true. 

We should be training up our youth
That they may know the excellence
Of God's prophetic words of truth
That they may give a bold defense.

When Paul was called to make his case
Within the Jewish congregation,
He showed prophetic proof with grace
Which was fulfilled by their own nation! 

O Lord, though many stand aloof,
Indifferent to eternity,
We show the great prophetic proof
Which You provide in prophecy.
