"He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” (Matthew 13:31-32)

Mystification

Our justification

sanctification

And glorification

 

Born into the sea

Came out from the depths

to save me from me

gave purpose and breath

 

Firstborn from the dead

Firstborn of creation

So much bloodshed

Completely forgiven

 

Transcendent reality

Heaven and earth

Escape the duality

See the rebirth

 

All things made new

With one sacrifice

Good things to ensue

Resurrection and life

 

New heavens new sphere

Seed has been sown

Kingdom draws near

Tree partially grown

 

Continues to grow

As each man is added

As one comes to know

Jesus iron cladded


resurrection begotten

the dead come awake

when all seems forgotten

He does not forsake

 

Each one born afresh

departs the departed

cut off extra flesh

no longer hard hearted

 

Stone to great mountain

Covering the earth

Refreshing fountain

Unfathomable worth

Growing and growing

Mountain expanding

Living water is flowing

No evil left standing

 

Beauty for ashes

Splendor for shame

Hope for the masses

Hold fast to His name

 

Restoring all things

Death under His feet

The King of kings

Advances the fleet

 

Faith makes us godly

Stuck on to His bride

Conformed to the body

Perfection inside

 

His love is advancing

The world is transforming

Spirit is dancing

Star of the morning

 

Immanuel

God dwells with man

Manifold, supernatural

The flawless plan

 

Serpent cast out

Curse is reversed

Eden lockout

ended and burst

 

Which tree to bite

Grace brings vitality

Law will bring blight

Enhances mortality

 

One is decreasing

Greatest decapitated

The other increasing

Head is elevated

 

Transfiguration

Solved the equation

Completed occasion

Perfect salvation

Wellsprings of Rest
