We Have Not Followed Cleverly Designed Fables
To speculate about just how it's going to be, (Tim. 4:4)
When God fulfills His word--this cannot set us free.
But that which He has done among us in this day,
Tells us He'll fulfill His word in His own way.
chorus:
We have not followed cleverly designed, (2 Pet. 1:16)
Fables and stories--fabrications of our mind,
But that which we've seen and handled with our hands, (1 John 1:1)
We speak of our experiences in the Kingdom land.

To speculate about a future prophecy, (2 Pet. 1:20)
Will never bring the saints to perfect unity,
He's given us command of what to do today,
He supplies the pow'r--we yield and obey.

And many of them put the saints of God at ease. (Amos 6:1)

The pattern has been set. The Scripture makes it clear. (Ex. 25:9)

We must do away with forms from man's own mind.

We have not followed cleverly designed, (2 Pet. 1:16)

Growing up requires the pattern be complete. (Heb. 8:5)
As newborn babes receive the milk and then the meat. (Heb. 5:12)
Each part that God ordained. He made to give us life,
To give us faith and love--to take away all strife.

We've seen the apostolic five-fold ministry (Eph. 4:11-13)
Equipping all the saints and bringing unity
Of doctrine and of order, and laying on their hands, (Titus 1:5)
To impart some spiritual gifts, fulfilling Christ's commands. (1 Tim. 4:14)

The using of the gifts, life flows from each to all. (1 Cor. chpts 12-14)

The pattern now restored--not form, but God's own way.
Prophets and apostles, the five-fold ministry.
The elders and the deacons as God's authority. (1 Tim. 5:17)
We yield to His Spirit. This is what sets us free. (Titus 1:5, 1 Tim. 3:8)
