O Jerusalem! Where are thou?

The City of Refuge

OH Jerusalem!

What a mighty city you are. But still the host of greatness may still need a refreshing.The people of this great city Is called to reclaim their strength.Walk upright before God and speak with a sound voice not only that you will be heard, but that his word is pure and sound. That his word will work the work that he sent it to perform.

Over in Isaiah 33:13

13.Hear ye that are far off, what I have done; ye that are near, acknowledge my might.

15.He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly;he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing the blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;

16.He shall dwell on high; his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks; bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.

17.Thine eyes shall see the King in his beauty;they shall behold the land that is very far off.

20. Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities; thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed. neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken

21.But there the glorious Lord will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars;neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.

22.For the Lord is our judge,the Lord is our lawgiver the Lord is our King; he will save us.

24. And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick; the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.

Peace come to those that dwell in the city of Jerusalem. The City of refuge and strength. The only thing you hear is Holy to God for ever. Your entire being is subject to the order of his Kingdom.You are drawn close to the Honey of the honey comb. Yourself filled with the sweetness of Gods' spirit of completeness.Feeling as full as the vastness of Gods universe.

Oh Jerusalem! What a great city you are.

I see white robes that stand before you

with praise for the King

Oh Jerusalem! What a great city you are.

Queens dance before him with a pure heart

Oh Jerusalem! What great city you are.

His anointment fills his city

Those that enter; Faces shine

like the morning star.

Oh Jerusalem! What a great city you are.

To abide within your walls of refuge of peace

and safety where his train fills the temple.

Oh Jerusalem! What a great city you are.

You are so full and with great depth;

yet your invitations are extending to all to come.

Oh Jerusalem !

May my conversation tell of your glorious

state;for my eyes have seen the king of Glory!

Praise be to His Holy Name!

Swifty,

I love the message in the scripture from Isaiah, and the poem speaks volumes to my spirit.
