Your Spirit: This Is Why We Sing

November 2, 2019

This is Why We Sing

In the name of Jesus:
I was lost;
I was found –
I was saved.
In the name of Jesus:
I found Love;
I found peace –
As He gave.
In the name of Jesus:
When we find the songs –
Then we sing –
In His Name.

This is why we sing:
For the truth (as given).
This is why we sing.
When we find Your truth;
When we know,
We sing to the Holy –
As we follow.

Peace – as I was saved;
Filled – as He lifted –
I was gifted;
In Your Love, I was reborn.

In the name of Jesus –
I was found;
I was saved;
I am Loved.

I found Love;
I am Loved.

ISAIAH 40:31

The Miracle; The Testimony

September 7, 2019

So God,
Make me your example
Make me a miracle
I’ll be the miracle

Show us a miracle
I’ll be the one

We are waiting
Anticipating
The miraculous
Show us miraculous

The miracle working power
of our God:
We’ve been waiting
We’ve been waiting on you
The miracle worker

I am not the same
I’ve been changed
In Your Glory

I am the testimony.


The Groom’s Still Waiting at the Altar

August 17, 2019

Prayed in the ghetto with my face in the cement,
Heard the last moan of a boxer, seen the massacre of the innocent
Felt around for the light switch, became nauseated.
She was walking down the hallway while the walls deteriorated.

East of the Jordan, hard as the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the page, Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Try to be pure at heart, they arrest you for robbery,
Mistake your shyness for aloofness, your silence for snobbery,
Got the message this morning, the one that was sent to me
About the madness of becomin’ what one was never meant to be.

West of the Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the stage,
Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Don’t know what I can say about Claudette that wouldn’t come back to haunt me,
Finally had to give her up ’bout the time she began to want me.
But I know God has mercy on them who are slandered and humiliated.
I’d a-done anything for that woman if she didn’t make me feel so obligated.

West of the Jordan, west of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the cage,
Curtain risin’ on a new stage,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Put your hand on my head, baby, do I have a temperature?
I see people who are supposed to know better standin’ around like furniture.
There’s a wall between you and what you want and you got to leap it,
Tonight you got the power to take it, tomorrow you won’t have the power to keep it.

West of the Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the stage, Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Cities on fire, phones out of order,
They’re killing nuns and soldiers, there’s fighting on the border.
What can I say about Claudette?
Ain’t seen her since January,
She could be respectably married or running a whorehouse in Buenos Aires.

West of the Jordan, west of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the stage,
Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

What Is Left To Be Trusted?

What we read?
What we hear?
What we see?

When we can only trust that which is without question,
know then what is true – and what is to be believed.
When there is nothing left but undoubted answers,
all that will remain is what was written to follow.


Preaching Devils

July 20, 2019

Don’t try and make me listen
To all your superstition
That you been selling for so, so long . . .
It’s killing me cause your’e so far gone
Fly like a flame through the Face of the Sun
Rise with the fire till the battle is won
Blind to what the world says can never be done
Fight until the end
In the name of Love
I see a 100 devils
Preaching another level
Selling the high road to low, low, low . . .
They’re lying to our faces
And nothing ever changes
They’re saying yes, I say no, no, no . . .

Then said Jesus unto his disciples,

“If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”

“And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot
be my disciple.”

“Imitate me, as I imitate Christ.”

A Song; A Psalm (1)

July 18, 2019

Spoken: The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

Sung: through and above:
Our God is an awesome God

Spoken: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Sung: through and above:
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from Heaven above

Spoken: Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Sung: through and above:
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from Heaven above
With wisdom, power and love

Spoken: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Sung: through and above:
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from Heaven above
With wisdom, power and love
Our God is an awesome God

Word: with varying emphasis.  Song: fades in with red, soft to strong,
to continuing after, and to through/rising above.  Music: fades in, fills/corresponds.  [Pausing after each spoken verse, while the latter/former moves forward.]  All is repeated, once (where the psalm is further emphasized).


The Word: Infallible Dialogues (2)

Jesus and Saul (To the Churches)

As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.  He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him,

“Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”
“Who are You, Lord?” Saul asked.
“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.”

So he, trembling and astonished, said
“Lord, what do You want me to do?”
“Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

Then Saul arose from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus.  For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

Apostles Preaching - Dore

“And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance; And saw him saying unto me,”

“Make haste, and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me.”

And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said,

“Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of Me in Jerusalem,
so must thou bear witness also at Rome.”

“But I make known to you, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not according to man.  For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.  For you have heard of my former way of life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it.”
“But when it pleased God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by His grace, to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood.”  “(Now concerning the things which I write to you, indeed, before God, I do not lie.)”

“For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, And that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.  After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep.  After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles.  Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.  For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle. . . .”
