All glory be to our wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for this latest instrumental album Redeemed for Resurrection in Christ ~Original Keyboard Instrumental Prayers! The newest release is the natural follow up to the instrumental album “Behold The Lamb released in February 2023.
While “Behold The Lamb” is a musical meditation on Christ, the Lamb of God who sacrificed His life by dying on the cross for the sins of humanity, the theme of Redeemed For Resurrection asks listeners to reflect on what redemption in Christ actually means for the soul who receives Jesus as their Savior.
The Lord has always given me the titles for each song to use for His albums.
The titles are often inspired by a scripture.
The Lord revealed to me several years ago that His instrumentals were musical conversations intended to ignite intimate conversations~ prayer ~between Himself and the precious souls who take them into their prayer closets. (*see Matthew 6:6)
“But when you pray, you should go into your room and close the door. Then pray to your Father. He is there in that private place. He can see what is done in private, and he will reward you.”
Matthew 6:6 ERV
The verse~ the song, was as a flame, a light to stimulate His children to go to their bibles, to seek His face, and believe by faith that Christ will teach them through His Word, by His Holy Spirit. For “…faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17
The Lord has promised in His Word to reveal Himself to His children who believe in Him and keep His commandments.
Jesus said, “He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.” John 14:21, 23 NASB1995
And He promised “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.” John 10:27-28 NASB1995
One caveat if we are of a worldly mindset, ( here is the dictionary definition of worldly: *of or concerned with material values or ordinary life rather than a spiritual existence: ie~ “…his ambitions for worldly success”)
~ then the Lord stressed that worldliness would be that one factor that would bar the Holy Spirit from entering the door of their heart.
A worldly heart, Jesus told His followers, cannot see the Holy Spirit or ever know Him. It could not ever know or walk with God.
I pray always that the Lord Jesus will speak to many through the things He shares through me to those who find them scattered throughout the earth.
Those gifts are always meant to help His children seek His face through His Word and pray directly to Him.
I believe the Lord desires to have an intimate relationship with His children even as Enoch walked in such a way with God.
The scriptures say “And Enoch walked with God and he was not, for God took him…” Genesis 5:24
I treasure the way the Easy English Bible paraphrases the following verse from the book of Hebrews:
Enoch also believed God. Because of Enoch’s faith, God took him away to heaven. He did not die like other people. As a result, nobody could ever find him, because God had taken him away. Before God took him away, it was clear that Enoch had made God happy.”
Hebrews 11:5 EASY
Jesus said, ‘“This is eternal life that they might know God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent.” John 17:3
How can we know God if we don’t spend time with Him and read His Word?
The Lord had specifically said, “Do not self promote…”
All of the business models were in opposition to this plan. The Lord’s guidance did not make sense. “I don’t see how this will ever help Thy songs to reach Thy children,” I prayed.
But the Lord was always opposed to the never ending streams of commercial business advice and strategies for success that were ever being hurled at me.
So I just kept on doing what the Holy Spirit led me to do, ever relying on God’s Word, trusting that He who loved me would never fail me.
“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.” John 16:13 NASB1995
As far as the songs were concerned, I named them what the Holy Spirit led me to name them. For it was all His music.
The Lord said not to worry about trying to gain favor with the culture. I was to only care about God’s favor. All I had to do was to honor and obey Him.
The Lord impressed on my heart that what mattered to worldly vanity would never matter in the Lord’s Kingdom.
Each saint is the Lord’s temple in which Christ resides when they invite Jesus into their heart. (*see 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19)
“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
1 Corinthians 6:20 KJV
Conforming to the world He stressed had no place in Christ’s kingdom and can never serve Christ’s purposes. By conforming to the world He meant doing things that in a way that was not according to His will. He wanted me to abide in Him in prayer, to listen to His voice, and to trust Him by faith that He would lead me by His Holy Spirit down the right path. That He would not fail me. That He is real and not an imaginary Creator.
The Lord stressed that if I would trust Him, and do everything He asked that He would demonstrate His faithfulness to His Word. And so thirty six albums later He has not failed me and done everything exactly the way He has promised.
Jesus said, And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me.” John 12:32 KJV
He told me His reality could only be manifested as I removed my focus from this world and off myself by gazing upwards in sincere worship, living for my Savior who had given Himself without reservations to redeem our souls so that we might serve Him in the resurrection of the new lives He had purchased for us through His death on the cross.
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.” John 14:26 NASB1995
Christ would teach His children these truths through His eternal Word as they sought Him with a pure heart.
God is love.
He has no favorites. He loves each of His children as if they were the only child He had to love. He longs for each of us to come to know Him and spend time with Him each day.
Jesus promised to reveal Himself to those who would believe.
Jesus said “This is the will of Him who sent Me,
that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing,
but raise it up on the last day.
For this is the will of My Father,
that everyone who beholds the Son
and believes in Him will have eternal life,
and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.”
No one can come to Me unless
the Father who sent Me draws him;
and I will raise him up on the last day.
It is written in the prophets,
‘And they shall all be taught of God.’
Everyone who has heard
and learned from the Father,
comes to Me.”
John 6:39-40, 44-45 NASB1995
In Jesus name amen.
