The story has not
changed in over 2000 years. Jesus is the same today as He was then and
His message of salvation has not changed. In the Book of Revelation,
John talks of the River of Life that flows through the streets of
heaven. That river is still the same. However, in 2010 there is a fresh
breeze blowing for The Kingdom and this album/project endeavours to
express some of that freshness that is rising around the world.
The tracks have a strong "end-time" theme, indicating that we are
moving into the final stages of human history.
The album will contain the following tracks in the order
shown (Just click on the track title to play the song):
The child, who is the subject of this song, was born on the morning
this song was written. I had already been given many prophetic items
about this child, but that night the Lord gave me my first prophetic
song. The words came in just 20 minutes and it tells of the fact that
this child will be a "storm for God" as she moves through life.
Them With The Rock
(with Paul Munro): The words were given to me during the meeting one
night at Tingha, following Pastor Paul's revelation of a vision one of
the youth had during the previous week about an Aboriginal hitting a
white man with a rock: the interpretation being that the Aboriginal
Church was going to shake the established churches by hitting them with
The Rock (Jesus) to bring them back into line with God's word. After
the meeting Paul and I sat down and, together wrote the music.
Thousand Voices Singing: A song of praise that
echoes the angels singing praises in God's presence.
Only at the end of time can we truly know the amazing Grace of God but
many have felt touches of this Amazing Grace as they have stood for God
in times of trial, because that feeling gives us reassurance.
We are all soldiers in God's army but every now and again, some people
are called to take on a special role in God's army as a Sin Slayer,
people who are called to special battle where the exposing and
destruction of sin, in some form or another, is their prime purpose.
The number one Sin Slayer will always be Jesus, but down through the
ages there have been many such special warriors, some of who are people
like Samuel, Elijah, Elisha and John The Baptist, but are certainly not
limited to the prophets of old.
Living And Loving:
For more than 18 months I had seen these three words at the front of
our church every Sunday. As I pondered these words, God revealed to me
just how these words are applicable to our daily walk with Him.
Jesus paid the ultimate price so that I might be free. In doing so, He
had to suffer for mankind so as to take our sin upon Himself, so that
the price could be paid. In that final period of suffering there were
three main parts and that is voiced in the 3 verses of this song.
Up The Sky:
The Bible is very clear about the second coming of Christ. It won't be
in some dark corner or in secret but will be just as the lightning
touches the sky in a storm, as His glory fills the entire Earth at the
As We Are:
The beauty of the Love of Christ is that He accepts us "just as we
are". No other religion offers that power of acceptance. That is what
makes Christianity different. Once accepted, God then makes the changes
in our life.
Easy For Jesus:
Most things are, at best, difficult for us and usually impossible but
when we turn to Jesus, He makes things easy because He is the one that
does these things for us. It is not us that do things but the power
that comes only from Him.
Me: A song of prayerful worship for God to draw
us closer to Him. This should be the prayer for all of us at all times.
A new approach to the Lord's Prayer. I had, for many years, wanted to
write a version of the Lord's Prayer in music that was a little
different, but God kept saying "No!" I may never understand the reason
for that, but it no longer matters, as now He has released the words
and music to me.
The devil robs us of many things including the ones we love. We must
claim them back in the Name of Jesus and do it in complete faith.
At the end of time, the devil and all his followers are destined to end
up in the eternal lake of fire, from which there is no escape. Those
who do not follow God's ways are destined for the same fate.
Will Calm Your Storm:
Natalie Price sent me these words for the Crying In The Silence website
and, as I read them, God filled my heart with the need to write music
for the poem. As it turned out, very little change was needed to make
the words fit and the song was written in 4 parts, with different
styles of music that flowed together rather well.
Child And The Lion:
On the day I wrote this song I was given a very clear and powerful
vision. In the vision I saw, clearly, someone I know, as still a very
yong child, standing between two fully grown lions and obviously
without any fear. There were other lions lying around as well, yet she
was not at all concerned. She had her tiny hands resting upon the heads
of both of the lions, just as though she was patting them. They were
obviously aware of her presence but were not attempting to harm or
frighten her in any way. I was reminded of the passage from Isaiah 11:6
- "The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the
goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together, and a little
child will lead them." The identity of this child was very clear to me.
Now I do not know if this is literal or spiritual, either way it is the
first major prophecy about the calling over this child that had come
for a while. The vision was then followed by the complete words and
melody of the song on the exact same subject - vision and song coming
in less than 20 minutes.
