Auditorium at Caesarea

Auditorium at Caesarea

This is the Now time
You have saved the best wine
Until now
You have the best for me now

The Clouds of Your Presence

The Clouds of Your

Smoke coming on the breeze
A mighty wind blowing across

The cloud of Your glory
Releasing the Heavenly Hosts
Covering the Temple Mount with Your Presence

Called to pray for the unborn children
For the Devastated Generation

Overturn the unrighteous judgements
Release Justice and Righteousness
Over the leaders of this nation

Give them wisdom and compassion
Dreams and visions
To overturn

Raise up a strong voice
To defend the defenceless innocent ones.



We are a Frontier People
Zealous for our God
For His Kingdom to come

We stand against the plans of the enemy
With our face towards
Jesus our Saviour

Aqueduct at the Temple

Aqueduct at the Temple

Water washes
Cleansing blood
From springs and rains
Collected in cisterns

Alongside the Western Wall
Past the Holy of Holies?
“No digging here
or we shall war against you
and bring the might of nations
against you”

Is the Ark of the Covenant within?
Hastily buried among the walls?
Covered by debris and blocked off?

Today inaccessible
God will reveal
Everything in its time

Temple upon temple
The miracle of moving stones
Larger than the Pyramid’s

The depths below
Are revealed hollow
Supported by arches above

Into the aqueduct
Where water once ran freely
To the pools of clear water
Baptise, baptise the people
Into Jesus.

Holocaust Museum

Childrens’ Monument

A city of lights
Lamps that were snuffed out

Stars of a generation
That were never allowed to fully shine

Remembered, every one,
As stars shining in the darkness

A lost generation
Removal of God’s children
From the land

Western Wall

Western Wall

The height and the depth
The width and the breadth of it
A fragment of what remains of a distant memory
The cries for help,
Restoration and a redeemer
From the enemies that surround us.

Such love
Such devotion
Such passion
To touch the heart of the One who
Loves Israel and Jerusalem

The temple is destroyed
Not a stone left standing
Yet among them are
Living stones
Built together to form a temple
For the display of Your glory

My heart contains the Living God
He dwells within me
Your Kingdom come

Crucified in a Car Park

Crucified in a Car Park

Crosses by the busy road
Face to face
Not very high
You could have looked Him in the eye

The Jewish execution site
Within the stone quarry
Jews would stone the sinners here
Now in Roman occupation
The Roman way was crucifixion

Place of the skull
Outside the city gates and walls
He hung there from twelve til three
The sixth hour til the ninth hour
While Father covered Him in darkness
And mercy kept Him there for me

Lambs were always killed upon
The north side of the altar
As He hung there the
Passover lambs
Were being slaughtered

“It is finished!”
His triumphal cry
The earth split open
Sin and sickness came to death
In His body as He died

Where his blood
Fell to the ground
Bus and coaches are the sound
From off the streets
The men remain
Not noticing the scandalous claim
He is Messiah to all that come
And bow the knee
Before His throne
