The Word in Song: theunfetteredpreacher

When I was first Saved, we sang Praise and Worship songs. Not Hymns, as the older established Denominations sang, and not the songs I hear today.

Both are wonderful, the Hymns, a History of Mans Love of God, and Gods Faithfulness. Today’s Worship is a reflection of our Love of God, and God’s Faithfulness to us.

In the Charismatic Church, I was Saved in, at that time, the Worship and Praise was the Choruses from the Hymns, and Scripture verses put to music.

I ended up memorizing much Scripture, and that brought me Joy unspeakable, as I sang and attempted to live it.

This is one of my favorites.

“For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.” (Psalm 84:11-12)

The Lord God:

For the longest time, I considered Lord God, to be God’s first and last name sometimes called Father God. As I have studied the Old Testament, I realize Lord God, is really two members of the Trinity.

The Lord, is the Law Giver, the Father, the Eternal One, and God, is the Creator/Ruler, the Savior, the Son.

They often speak as One, but if you study what the Lord said, and compare it with what God said, it becomes readily apparent that Law and Grace have spoken. (Job 1:8 Exodus 3:4-7 more by request)

Is:

Once was, Is now and will Be. Enoch pleased God, because he believed God Is and Is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)

A Sun:

A light in the darkness, a lamp unto our feet. (Psalm 119:105). Warmth, Comfort, and Health.

A Shield:

He is our Secret Place, a thousand on one side and ten thousand on the other will fall, but not touch us. (Psalm 91:1,7)

The Lord gives Grace:

Grace is Salvation, Noah and family were saved from the flood. By the Grace he received because he walked with God. (Genesis 6:8,9).

Glory:

Reputation, Noah became the heir of Righteousness. (Hebrews 11:7). We are changed into His Glory. (2 Corinthians 3:18)

No good thing will be withheld:

My God shall supply all our needs, we can receive the Holy Spirit, to guide, direct, teach, comfort, cause us to pray, perfect prayers. (Philippians 4:19; Ephesians 3:20; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 14:14,15; John 14:26)

Lord of Hosts:

The Commander of Heavens Armies, will bless those who Trust in Him. We shall never want.

This Song brings Joy, Peace, Comfort, and Faith. We should know and sing it as a prayer.

Praise in a minor key: theunfetteredpreacher

https://www.dropbox.com/s/l934p4okaho4r94/praiseinaminorkey.url%20.mp4?dl=0 More old praise tunes. Hope you enjoy. Jehovah Jirah, The Trees of the Field. (Isaiah 55:12), Jesus is my Lord, my Master my Savior; Glory, to the Lord.

This was recorded several years ago. I was trying to remember the joy of Praise. I miss leading a congregation, to the Holy of Holies.

Errors in playing, just reminds me how long it has been, since I enjoyed Praise and Worship.

You may ask, ‘Why continue to record, both bad vocals and playing?’

I have lost my voice and seem to be losing any skill I once had. Vanity, is vanity.

The only song the Lord has given me. In early 80’s on road, in NJ, I think. Ministering at 2 prisons that day.

In my morning Bible reading. Isaiah 53:3-6. Not that order.

Some 9 minutes of before service Praise, then the choir and I sing The Lighthouse.

Sorry, I had wanted to do this in 3 or 4 minute segments. No Joy, if too long fast forward to the 9 minute mark.

Thanks

4 types of believers :

There are 4 types of believers in the body of Christ :

The Church attenders
The Levites
The Priest’s
Those who walk with God :

☆  The Church attenders:

These are the people who desperately want  a Savior,  some attend church Christmas and Easter, most  every Sunday, a chosen few  two or more times a week.  They may be involved with Sunday school, choir, Bible  study.

They know the apostles creed, they have believed and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior.

They have allowed Jesus to be Savior;  As Lord, not so much.

They love the idea of being saved as long as it doesn’t interrupt or change their lives too much.

Like the Hebrews in the desert, they will gladly partake of the Lords provisions while complaining about the same.

Man: “I haven’t had a new pair of shoes in years.” 
Other man: “Well, they still look brand new.” 
Man:  “Yeah, I want different ones.”

Dismissing  the miracles the Lord is doing, daily. 

☆  The Levites:

The Levites are the backbone of the Churches; they are the organizers,  the workers, builders, movers and shakers. 

In the desert they assembled and disassembled, carried and cared for the Lords house. 

Protected it from stangers (those who knew not the Lord).  They stood with the Priest’s  when the Church attenders sinned.

They know the apostles creed, they have believed and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior.

They have allowed Jesus to be Savior;  and Lord in many areas of their lives. 

Some things are just to dear to give up.

☆  The Priest’s :

These are the doers of the Word:  They study to show themselves approved, workmen rightly dividing the Word of truth.  They teach, preach, exhort, comfort, guide and direct. Wherever  they go. 

They know the apostles creed, they have believed and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Jesus is their Lord and Savior : 

They live a life of holiness, sanctification and consecration. 

They deny themselves and take up  their cross daily.

They work out their Salvation with fear and trembling. 

They have set their face like flint towards the Lord.

They may have many followers or none.  They are concerned with being obedient to God.  They will be misunderstood,  maligned, persecuted and highly favored by God.

☆  Those who walk with God :

Psalm 65:4
King James Version (KJV)
“Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.”

This is who we all should aspire to be.  The Lord has stood at the door of our hearts, we have accepted Him in.  Now we need to let Him Cause us to approach,  learn to enter into the Holy of Holies,  to find the mercy and grace He so wants to share.

Psalm 22 tells us He inhabits the Praise of His people.  If we desire  to walk with Jesus, we must learn to praise and worship.  Learn to live the Lords prayer, not just recite it. 

If we want to experience joy unspeakable, the peace that passes understanding, the comforter, teacher, lover of our souls, we must Worship and adore Him.  Believe Him…Take His Yoke…..it is the only way to Walk with Him.

If you just attend Church,  and  don’t allow Jesus to be Lord, when its time to enter the promise, you may find you have an evil heart of unbelief.  Like the Hebrews you may just wonder and die in the desert.

Please Lord, create in us clean hearts and renew our Spirits, that we might Walk with You.
