Archives For ESV

I love Christmas music! I mean, I really love Christmas music. So today’s Worship Wednesday song begins 5 weeks of songs that center around the birth of our Savior.

Today’s song is entitled “He Who Is Mighty” from Sovereign Grace Music.

The first verse says this:

Oh, the mercy our God has shown
To those who sit in death’s shadow
The sun on high pierced the night
Born was the Cornerstone

The chorus echoes with these words:

He Who is mighty has done a great thing
Taken on flesh, conquered death’s sting
Shattered the darkness and lifted our shame
Holy is His name

The songwriters looked at Isaiah 9:2-7 & Luke 1:46-49 for the inspiration for this song.

Isaiah 9:2-7 (ESV)

2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.
3 You have multiplied the nation; you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as they are glad when they divide the spoil.
4 For the yoke of his burden, and the staff for his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor,
you have broken as on the day of Midian.
5 For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult and every garment rolled in blood will be burned as fuel for the fire.
6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

I hope you enjoy today’s Worship Wednesday song and I hope that you worship HIM today because He is the one who “conquered death’s sting … Holy Is His Name”

Beyonce & Jay-Z

A friend of mine showed me this video a few days ago and I watched in amazement. Not at the fact that Beyonce and Jay-Z actually do this, but at the fact as to how open they are about it!

World, it’s time we wake up! It’s time we see the truth behind what is happening!

Good Fight Ministries says, “Beyonce is one of the hottest artists on the scene today. But as we’ll see, there is something sinister behind her success, as Beyonce even admits, and millions of fans are clueless as to who they are actually “worshiping.”

(Ephesians 5:5-13 ESV)

For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not become partners with them; for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible,
