These Are the Prophets


© Jamie Soles Oct 13 2006

Sample

These are the prophets, they speak and things change
New worlds are created, old ones rearranged
They serve as the counsellors to God Most High
So prophesy, prophet, prophesy

Adam, Abel, Enoch, Noah,
Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Balaam,
Moses, Aaron, Miriam, Joshua,
Eldad, Medad, and the seventy elders
Samuel had a group of prophets
Saul (What, Saul?!? Was Saul among the prophets?)
David, Nathan, Gad the Seer
These all prophesied, we hear them

CHORUS

Ahijah the Shilonite spoke to Jeroboam
A man of God from Judah did the same
Shemaiah spoke to Rehoboam in the south
The old man from Bethel had some lies in his mouth!
SHAME ON HIM!
Elijah, Elijah, Elijah!
Obadiah hid one hundred prophets in a cave
He fed them bread and water and he made them all behave
Elisha, Elisha, Elisha!
If a prophet comes to you and tells you "Strike me, please!"
You'd better be obliging or you'll be a lion's feast
Jehu son of Hanani, Jehoshaphat, Micaiah
Nameless prophets, sons of prophets, men like Azariah
To direct His people God sent prophets by the score
The ones that we have mentioned
And there's many many many many many many more....

Shall I Hide

(Gen 18:17–19)
© Jamie Soles Sept 13 2006

Sample

Shall I hide from Abraham what I'm about to do
Seeing he will be a great and mighty nation
Shall I hide from Abraham what I'm about to do
Since the blessing of the world will come through him?

For I have chosen him
That he may command his children
And his household after him to keep My ways
So that I may bring the things I've promised Abe....

Shall I hide from Abraham what I'm about to do
Seeing he will be a great and mighty nation
Shall I hide from Abraham what I'm about to do
Since the blessing of the world will come through him?

This is the way I work
I always tell My prophets
If I am going to do a work in the earth
I want to hear what they say
If My hand should be stayed....

Shall I hide from Abraham what I'm about to do
Seeing he will be a great and mighty nation
Shall I hide from Abraham what I'm about to do
Since the blessing of the world will come through him?
Will come through him

What Prophets Do

(Gen 20:1–7)
© Jamie Soles Sept 13 2006

Sample

Aren't you glad I did not let you touch her?
If you had, you would pay with your life...
Don't be bad, or your future is over
She is another man's wife.

Now give her back
For he is a prophet
And he will pray for you
I will hear him and you will live
For that's what prophets do.

Aren't you glad I did not let you touch her?
Now your house will be fruitful again
You, your wife, and your female slaves
Will be healed when I hear from him.

Now give her back
For he is a prophet
And he will pray for you
I will hear him and you will live
For that's what prophets do.

Now give her back
For he is a prophet
And he will pray for you
I will hear him and you will live
For that's what prophets do.

Golden Calf

(Ex 32)
© Jamie Soles Nov 21 2006

Sample

I'm gonna kill them, Moses leave Me alone
They're a stiff-necked people and I'm making it known
I will consume them, for My wrath is a flame
I will end them now and build a house for your name
I'm gonna kill them, Moses leave Me alone
They're a stiff-necked people and I'm making it known
I will consume them, for My wrath is a flame
I will end them now and build a house for your name

What will the Egyptians say to this?
They will tell each other You are evil
And what about Your promises
That You made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?
Turn from Your burning anger
Turn back this plan against Your people
They are Your people
And You have promised....

Dust of Jacob

(Num 23)
© Jamie Soles Nov 16 2004

Sample

From Aram Balak brought me
The king of Moab from the eastern mountains
"Come, curse Jacob for me, come denounce Israel!"
How can I curse whom God has not cursed?
How can I denounce whom the Lord has not?
From the tops of the crags I see him
From the hills I behold a people dwelling alone
No land to call their home

Who can count the dust of Jacob?
Who can number his quarter part?
Let me die the death of the upright,
Let my end be just the start

Rise up now, Balak; hear me
God is not a man, a liar
Nor a son of man, that He should change His mind
Has He said, and will He not do it?
Has He spoken, will He not fulfill?
Behold, I've been told to bless him
For the Lord has blessed, and I cannot revoke
The word Jehovah spoke

Who can count the dust of Jacob?
Who can number his quarter part?
Let me die the death of the upright,
Let my end be just the start
Who can count the dust of Jacob?
Who can number his quarter part?
Let me die the death of the upright,
Let my end be just the start

He has not beheld misfortune, nor seen trouble in Israel
For the Lord their God is with them, and a king will rise as well
God has brought him out of Egypt,
he's an ox that can't be tamed
There is no device against him, and when Israel is named
They will say, "See what God has done!"
They will say, "See what God has done!"

You Are the Man!

(2 Sam 12:1–15)
© Jamie Soles Sept 15 2006

Sample

There were two men in one city, one rich and one not
The rich had great flocks,
but the poor had one lamb he had bought
He brought it up with his children, it fed from his table and cup
It lay down in his bosom, and was like a daughter he loved

There was a day for the rich man when a traveller came
Unwilling to give of his own, to the poor man he came
Against his protesting his lamb was arrested and slain
And fed to the traveller, leaving the poor man in pain

Does this bother you?
Does it make you real mad
That the rich man would do this with all that he had?
That his eye had no pity?
Do you think he should die?
And restore it fourfold... God help me...
You are the man!

Is this clear to you?
These are the things you have done
Though the Lord gave you much, you've despised it and run
To the door of your neighbour to steal his bride...
So I'm taking my life in my hands, saying
You are the man!

Micaiah

(1 Kg 22)
© Jamie Soles Sept 29 2006

Sample

All the words of the prophets here are favourable to the king;
Let yours be the same, Micaiah.
They pronounce his victory, in triumph now they sing
Let yours be the same, Micaiah.
King Ahab doesn't like you much
I wonder why he calls you...
Only speak the truth untouched by any evil thoughts, Micaiah

There they are before the gates, the prophets prophesying
See the horns Zedekiah made of iron; are they lying?
Here the prophets of the land all stand in one accord
Victory to Israel's king is given by the Lord, Micaiah

And now if you should say
The king will go away, not returning
Say the king should die;
Say the prophets lie, never learning
You will be in trouble... deep

If you have a hankering to live on bread and water
Till the king comes home again in safety from the slaughter
Speak the word he does not like;
Tell him he will fail;
Should the prophets all be wrong
You'll still be in my jail, Micaiah.

All the words of the prophets here are favourable to the king;
Let yours be the same, Micaiah.

Chariots

(2 Kg 2:1–14)
© Jamie Soles Apr 30 2004

Sample

"I'm going up to Bethel," I heard Elijah tell.
"You don't need to go with me, I think I'll go myself.
I'm heading out for Jericho, you should stay and I should go.
The prophets' sons all tell you so, I'm leaving here today.
I'm going across the Jordan, and I ought to go alone...
I've rolled my cloak, I'm striking out for home."

As the Lord lives, as your soul lives,
I will not leave you today
As the Lord lives, as your soul lives,
I will not leave you today

"What can I do for you," he said.
"A double portion of your spirit
As a parting gift from you."
"You have asked a hard thing,
But if you see me when I'm taken, it's yours."
And we talked on...

I won my heart's desire when a chariot of fire
And a horse named Blaze took my master away
Imagine my delight to behold such a sight
Of Elijah in flight on the wind

My father! My father!
The chariots of Israel and its horsemen!
My father! My father!
The chariots of Israel and its horsemen!
My father! My father!
The chariots of Israel and its horsemen!

Bethel

(2 Kg 2:23–25)
© Jamie Soles Mar 24 2004

Sample

Bethel
I hate to be the bearer of bad news
To bear the news that bad news comes in twos
Two bad news bears are giving you the blues
Bethel
The boys were out engaging in their play
Now forty-two of them have gone away
Your sons are dead, your calf is here to stay

Bethel
The mocking of a godly man is learned
Your golden idol wins but you get burned
Consider this the wages you have earned

Bethel
If boys are being boys it's so extreme
If not then give a thought what this could mean
When idols paint the colour of their dreams
Then boys will be boys will be boys will be... lunch

Reeling in Jonah


© Jamie Soles Oct 28 2005

Sample

Jonah, Jonah, take a ship, go over
Take a fish, go under
Be an ocean rover
Jonah, Jonah, I won't leave you alone, no
You must bring the terms of peace
To Nineveh; Jonah, go!

My Word will slay the nations
My Name shall be revered
In the sight of every nation
All the world shall hear

Jonah, Jonah, take a ship, go over
Be an ocean rover
Avoiding what I told ya
Jonah, Jonah, I won't leave you alone, no
You must bring the terms of peace
To Nineveh; Jonah, go!

Forget your hesitations
Forget your people dear
Forget your pride and vengeance
Someone greater is here

Jonah, Jonah, take a ship, go over
Be an ocean rover
Avoiding what I told ya
Jonah, Jonah, I won't leave you alone, no
You must bring the terms of peace
To Nineveh; Jonah, go!

Run!

(2 Kg 9:1–13)
© Jamie Soles Sept 27 2006

Sample

One day (one day) Elisha (Elisha)
The prophet said to me
Tie up your garment (your garment)
Take this flask of oil in your hand
And go to Ramoth Gilead
And look for Jehu (Jehu) son of Nimshi (Nimshi)
Get him apart from all his pals
Then take this flask of oil (Take this flask of oil)
Pour it on his head (Pour it on his head, and say)
Thus says the Lord (Thus says the Lord)
I anoint you king over Israel

Sometimes a prophet has to stand
Like an iron wall against the land
And standing is fine, when the time is right
But the time is wrong, and it's fine for flight so....

RUN! Jehu is king, so RUN!
If you want to live you better RUN!

Ahab is finished; run, prophet; run, prophet
RUN! His tent flap is opening, RUN!
He's mounting his chariot, RUN!
He drives like a madman
Run, prophet; run, prophet, run!

Man Next Door

(Hos 1)
© Jamie Soles Nov 17 2006

Sample

I don't know about the man next door
He seems different than he was before
He used to be fine, till he crossed the line
And married that Gomer lady....
She seems quite popular with all the men in town
And to me it just doesn't seem right

They had several children; one, two, three
Jezreel, Lo-Ruhamah, Lo-Ammi
It's hard to play games with kids of such names
I wonder what he was thinking?
Pass the ball, I-Will-Put-An-End-to-Israel (Jezreel)!
A pretty thing to show No-Mercy (Lo-Ruhamah)
And little Lo-Ammi; Not-My-People, that is he....
And their mother is always gone....

Mom and Dad told us to shun them
No more playing, we are done with them
These neighbours defile us, we feel impure
We think we've been insulted but we're not quite sure....

I don't know about the man next door anymore....

Sign and a Wonder

(Ezek 4:1–5:4)
© Jamie Soles Sept 6 2006

Sample

Did you see him last year
Laying a siege on a city he made
Three hundred ninety days he laid
Out in the main square
Eating short rations
He was so skinny by the time he was done
It looked like play, but it was no fun
And everyone could see him....

Is he a sign? Is he a sign?
A sign and a wonder

I saw him today
Waving his sword all around in the air
Swinging away at a handful of hair
All through the city
His head was bald
It looked like he had shaved it with his sword
They say he is a prophet of the Lord
Well, he makes me wonder

Is he a sign? Is he a sign?
A sign and a wonder

Second Year

(Dan 2)
© Jamie Soles Oct 16 2006

Sample

It was hard to be a wise guy
In the second year of Nebuchadnezzar
For he would not tell his dreams
No he would not spill the beans
Though they tried to gain time
They were all doomed to find
It was hard to be a wise guy in the second year

So I went to see the king
In the second year of Nebuchadnezzar
"Would you please appoint a time" I asked
"For me to make it known?"
So I went home to my house and I told my faithful friends
We must seek the Lord of Heaven
Lest the wise come to an end
So we prayed in the night
And the Lord gave me sight

Blessed be the name of God forever and ever
To whom belong all wisdom and might
He changes times and seasons, He gives wisdom to the wise
He reveals things hidden deep in the dark
To You, God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise
For You have given wisdom and might
You have made known what we asked of You
What the king dreamed in the night
For with You is the dwelling of light

This word saved all the wise guys
In the second year of Nebuchadnezzar
And he raised me up on high in the second year

Buy a Field

(Jer 32)
© Jamie Soles Oct 18 2006

Sample

In the siege, in the siege of Jerusalem
I was shut up in the court of the guard
For I preached "Give it up to Babylon,
Though you fight them you will never succeed"

How their foreign armour shone! and the people were afraid
And the bread was almost gone,
and the breach was almost made
With the city poised to fall, and the nation overrun
The Word of the Lord came; time to buy a field

Seventeen shekels of silver
Signed the deed, it was sealed, it was witnessed
And the money was weighed
The deed was done, the price was paid

Tell me why... why did I buy a field
Tell me why... why did I buy a field
It will never yield
Not for me, not for me, not for me

You're a sign, you're a sign to Israel
I will restore their fortunes, they will return
And will find... fields will be sold and deeds will be signed
With no enemies near

How their foreign armour shone! and the people were afraid
And the bread was almost gone,
and the breach was almost made
With the city poised to fall, and the nation overrun
The Word of the Lord came; time to buy a field

Tell me why... why did I buy a field
Tell me why... why did I buy a field
It will never yield
Not for me, not for me, not for me

Down Jerusalem

(Jer 39–40)
© Jamie Soles Nov 20 2006

Sample

In the nineteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar
A breach was made, a hole in the city wall,
See the city fall
And the King was caught and brought to Riblah
Where the last thing he saw were his sons and nobles all
Together fall

Go down, down, down, down Jerusalem
Down, down, down, down Jerusalem
Down, down, down, down Jerusalem, down

I was taken from the prison house
By the word and a ward of a king of a king who knew my name
He knew my name
He told me that the Lord had done this
Because we sinned against Him and we strayed
Did not obey

Go down, down, down, down Jerusalem
Down, down, down, down Jerusalem
Down, down, down, down Jerusalem, down

He said...
Jeremiah, you are free
To stay with you or come with me
Whatever you wish, I will agree
I will treat you well, but whatever seems good to you
Do it, do it, do it
Jeremiah you go free
The Lord fulfilled your prophecy
Wherever you go, I will agree
Daniel would be pleased to meet you
But if you want to stay here
Then stay anywhere but Jerusalem....

Gates of Nain

(Lk 7:11–18)
© Jamie Soles Nov 27 2006

Sample

My husband died, and now my son
I'm all alone though the crowds have come
I walk by this bier to a field of stones in my soul
I know that death, it awaits us all....
I can't catch my breath from this dizzy fall
All that I've hoped for
Is lying still and cold in this crowd
Crying aloud for the pain
Weeping through the gates of Nain

Through my tears I see the crowd has grown
A Man approaches with compassion shown
He says, "Do not weep."
And our march of death and time stands still
Nothing could prepare me for this
What could have prepared me for this....
He spoke to my son, my dead son, my only son
And He told him to arise, and he did!

My boy sat up and then began to speak
This man named Jesus gave him back to me
The crowd was filled with awe, and they glorified God
"A great prophet has arisen among us!
A great prophet has arisen among us!"
A great prophet indeed has arisen for me
And given me life again
In the gates of Nain

Repent

(Acts 3:18–23)
© Jamie Soles Dec 4 2006

Sample

What God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets
That His Christ would suffer
Jesus has fulfilled
What God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets
That His Christ would suffer
Jesus has fulfilled

So repent, then, turn again
That your sins may be forgiven
That times of refreshing may come from the Lord
So repent, then, turn again
That your sins may be forgiven
Jesus is the prophet who comes from the Lord
Jesus is the prophet who comes from the Lord

Moses once foretold that the Lord would raise a prophet up
Like him from among us... Jesus is the one
And he told us we should listen to whatever He tells us
Now the Lord has done it, Jesus is the one!

So repent, then, turn again
That your sins may be forgiven
That times of refreshing may come from the Lord
So repent, then, turn again
That your sins may be forgiven
Jesus is the prophet who comes from the Lord
Jesus is the prophet who comes from the Lord

So repent, then, turn again
That your sins may be forgiven
That times of refreshing may come from the Lord
So repent, then, turn again
That your sins may be forgiven
Jesus is the prophet who comes from the Lord
Jesus is the prophet who comes from the Lord
