Before the throne of God above

Don’t know how well this arrangement would go down at most of our church gatherings here at FBC, but perhaps it might work at your place, otherwise I hope it’ll help you celebrate the assurance we can have in Jesus wherever you are now!

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea.
A great high Priest whose Name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me
My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on His heart.
I know that while in Heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tells me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.

Behold Him there the risen Lamb
My perfect spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I AM
The King of glory and of grace,
One with Himself I cannot die
My soul is purchased by His blood,
My life is hid with Christ on high

Apart from me there is no God

“This is what the Lord says—
    Israel’s King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty:
I am the first and I am the last;
    apart from me there is no God.

Isaiah 44 verse 6

This is a heavy verse – pretty controversial in our days as it was then. It hits right to the heart of the lie that says that there are many Gods and we need to choose the one that suits us. Is he mega-arrogant? If you’ve made the universe, and are the only one who pre-existed it, you get to say “apart from me there is no God”. But he’s not just unique and bigger than us, he is also a redeemer, he saves. His redeemed people live with him as their king.

All scripture is God breathed!

So… here goes.

I wrote and recorded this song a couple of years ago. I’ve been trying to make a better recording to post up, but I just can’t capture what I had in this recording – so we’ll have to put up with it for now at least.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3 verses 16-17

Amazing words – obviously I didn’t write them. Every single word of the bible was breathed out by God – it has his authority and power. Every single word is useful to us. Having God’s word means the Christian is throroughly equipped for every good work. Unless it’s closed and on a shelf. Get it stuck in your head and stored in your heart!

Peace out.
