A Prayer & Proclamation with Music
I decided to do something a bit different this week by putting a prayer and proclamation to music. Hope you enjoy and are inspired to know and make known the glory of Jesus!
Many have adopted a wrong image of Jesus who has been tamed by our culture, so that He has no authority to make demands on our time, money, energy, lifestyle choices, sexuality and more. Basically, we’ve formed our own version of God who is not worth our worship. This is absolutely catastrophic!
The Scriptures tell us that Jesus not only came and died for our sins, but He’s coming back in glory! All will see and all will know that He’s not a baby in a manger anymore. He’s not a broken man a cross. He didn’t stay in the grave, and He’s not staying in heaven forever. It’s time to wake up and open up the door because we’re about to hear the Lion roar!
The LORD shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up His zeal like a man of war. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies. I have held My peace a long time, I have been still and restrained Myself. Now I will cry…(Isa. 42:13-14)
The Lord reigns; Let the earth rejoice; Let the multitude of isles be glad! Clouds and darkness surround Him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. A fire goes before Him, and burns up His enemies round about. His lightnings light the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory. (Ps. 97:1-6)
The Mighty One, God the LORD, has spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun to its going down. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God will shine forth. Our God shall come, and shall not keep silent; a fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be a [raging storm] all around Him. (Ps. 50:1-3)
So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. (Heb. 4:16, NLT)
