(“First Love” video!) Barry McGuire — “When I left the Christies, I left in search of truth. …to be totally free? I found in Christ the fulfillment, the totality, the singularity of truth”

“First Love – A Historic Gathering of Jesus Music Pioneers”

I found this wonderful gem in which some of my favorite Christian musicians from my early walk with the Lord in the ’70s and ’80s gathered in this cabin in 1997.

[Those who influenced me in bold text]:

• Randy Matthews
Barry McGuire
Annie Herring
Chuck Girard
Matthew Ward
• John Fischer
• Andrae Crouch
• Jamie Owens Collins
2nd Chapter of Acts
Terry Clark
Keith Green tribute with Melody Green
Randy Stonehill
• Love Song
• Paul Clark
• Darrell Mansfield
• Honeytree

One of my favorite albums in those days was “To the Bride,” a two record set of live concerts by Barry McGuire & The 2nd Chapter of Acts, released in 1975, my first year after finding Christ.

Lincoln Brewster: ‘Shout to the Lord’

“Shout To The Lord”
by Darlene Zschech

My Jesus, my Savior,
Lord, there is none like You;
All of my days
I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love.

My comfort, my shelter,
Tower of refuge and strength;
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth,
Let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands,
Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand,
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

(vid) Lincoln Brewster: ‘Relativity’ LIVE

This seems to be from this concert, the last song, which was live At Bayside Church, Roseville, CA. I was disappointed by the lack of reverence in this concert, the K-LOVE ladies and Brewster’s jokes. It wasn’t very anointed, but this is the only live performance I can find of Brewster doing this song.

Lust Freedom: Worship the Creator, NOT the creation

LUST FREEDOM: worship the Creator, NOT people. Logos rising!

Anti-Logos TalmudVision promotes the exact opposite — a lust addicted planet:

“..although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him. Instead… they followed the lusts of their hearts and dishonored their bodies with one another. They exchanged God’s truth for a lie and worshipped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.” (Rom. 1:21, 24-25)

SUBMIT yourselves to God; RESIST the Devil and HE WILL FLEE from you!

James 4:1 Where do wars and fightings among you come from? Don’t they come from your pleasures that war in your members? You lust, and don’t have. You murder (James-3 curse) and covet, and can’t obtain. You fight and make war. You don’t have, because you don’t ask. You ask, and don’t receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. You adulterers and adulteresses, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who lives in us yearns jealously”? But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Be subject therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners. Purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament, mourn, and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he will exalt you.

(vid) Lincoln Brewster – ‘Miraculum’ Live! – Powerful 5-Song Christmas Medley!

I just found this incredible song yesterday, Christmas day 2019, surprised and disappointed that it’s been out for years, as I love this complex and powerful Trans-Siberian Orchestra style, and Jeff Beck tones!

“Miraculum” is an amazing three-movement instrumental incorporating these five songs in what appears to me to mainly be in this order until the complicated ending: “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “We Three Kings,” “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” “Carol of the Bells” and “O Holy Night.”

The photographer shot it with a Canon 6D with 70-200mm f2.8L lens, zoomed to 200mm, using the internal mic, and with tired arms, he says — difficult to hold the telephoto steady.

Lincoln Brewster: ‘Miraculum’ [*Acoustic* Instrumental]

How can an acoustic version come even close to Brewster’s amazing electric masterpiece?

Though definitely not as awe inspiring and moving to me, some may less aggressive approach. Delightful is the quiet, pin-drop section in the center, followed by a majestic ending; though, not reaching the heights of the electric version.

55 fulfilled Old Testament Prophecies about Jesus!

55 Old Testament Prophecies about Jesus

Jesus Film Project

THU JANUARY 4, 2018

Some scholars believe there are more than 300 prophecies about Jesus in the Old Testament. These prophecies are specific enough that the mathematical probability of Jesus fulfilling even a handful of them, let alone all of them, is staggeringly improbable—if not impossible.
