[music vid] ‘Blest Are They’

David Haas – ‘Blest Are They’

Blest are they, the poor in spirit
Theirs is the kingdom of God
Blest are they, full of sorrow
They shall be consoled

[Chorus]
Rejoice, and be glad!
Blessed are you, holy are you!
Rejoice and be glad!
Yours is the kingdom of God!

Blest are they, the lowly ones
They shall inherit the earth
Blest are they, who hunger and thirst
They shall have their fill

Blest are they, who show mercy
Mercy shall be theirs
Blest are they, the pure of heart
They shall see God!

Blest are they, who seek peace
They are the children of God
Blest are they who suffer in faith
The glory of God is theirs

Blest are you, who suffer hate
All because of me
Rejoice and be glad, yours is the kingdom of God
Shine for all to see

Reaches to the heavens

Petra – When will the world see that we need Jesus? / When our hearts are as one / When sister and brother love one another as one

JESUS’ PRAYER in John 17:20-23

“Not for these only do I pray, but for those also who believe in me through their word, that they may ALL be ONE; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be ONE IN US; THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVE  that you sent me.

THE GLORY which you have given me, I have GIVEN to them; THAT THEY MAY BE ONE, EVEN AS WE ARE one; I in them, and you in me, that they may be PERFECTED into one; THAT THE WORLD MAY KNOW that you sent me, and loved them, even as you loved me.”

Petra – ‘We Need Jesus’

When will the world see that we need Jesus?
If we open our eyes, we will all realize that He loves us, oh yea
When will the world see that we need Jesus?
When our hearts are as one and believe that He’s the Son of our God

[…]

When will the world see that we need Jesus?
When sister and brother love one another as one
When will the world see that we need Jesus?
Will we ever understand Jesus is the Son of man?
We must live in the shadow of His love

(7 min vid) First Love – A Historic Gathering Of Jesus Music Pioneers, 1997 – Long Trailer

I purchased the DVD/CD boxed set used here, but the video portion (almost 4 hours) can be watched for free at Amazon for those who have a Prime account: Part One & Part Two.

From: explorationfilms.com

The late 60’s and early ’70’s were a time of tremendous upheaval in American culture as the hippie generation abandoned the values of their parents, turned to drugs and away from materialism, and went on a search for love and peace. For these young people, “the establishment” which included the church, seemed irrelevant. At times it felt like the very fabric of our nation might tear apart.

It was out of this tumultuous era that young, musical voices began to surface. These newly converted musicians began singing about the new hope they had found through Jesus Christ.

First Love examines the life and music of the people who birthed the sounds of a revolution that swept American culture. It became know as the Jesus Movement. For three historic days, these artists gathered for the first time in a mountain retreat in Southern California and First Love Volumes I & II captures almost 4 hours of each of their incredible live performances and reveals a rare look at the heart and motives of each artist as they describe in intimate detail the drama of their personal transformation.

With performances by [those who influenced me are in bold – editor]:
• 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

“We didn’t know very much. We were naive. All we knew was we were blind, now we see. And that was enough.”

DJ Miko: ‘What’s Up?’ 4 Non Blondes Remix – Demon Kicker!

One of my favorite kick-demon-butt songs, which I heard on the radio one time only, while visiting Nashville, Tennessee, while renting a blue Eagle Talon. I pulled over to focus on the song, which I then tracked down as DJ Miko’s remix of the famous 4 Non Blondes’ song.

Put on THE WHOLE ARMOR of God, that you may be ABLE TO STAND AGAINST the wiles of the devil. 12 For OUR WRESTLING is NOT AGAINST FLESH and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the SPIRITUAL FORCES OF WICKEDNESS IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES. … Stand therefore … with all prayer and requests, PRAYING AT ALL TIMES IN THE SPIRIT, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints…. (Eph. 6:11-18)

Music to Kick Demons: Tiesto – ‘Adagio for Strings!’ — Our warfare is against demons, not people. But the demons are often in people!

Don’t be fooled by the cover.

Kick demon butt! Our warfare is against demons, not people. But the demons are often in people!

(music vid) “Gallows” by Jess Ray — The harder the wind will blow / The deeper our roots will go / The devil is gonna hang from his own gallows

Someone’s on the prowl, trying to take us down
But we ain’t giving up now
A liar and a thief, coming after you and me
But we ain’t giving up now

The harder the wind will blow, the deeper our roots will go,
And the devil’s gonna hang, oh the devil is gonna hang,
The devil is gonna hang from his own gallows

Though the waters try to drown, and the flames they surround oh
We ain’t giving up now
Even though we may tread through the valley of death oh
We ain’t giving up now

If you’re stumbling in the dark, run your hands against the walls
Find every window, every door, throw them open, throw them open
In will flood a blinding light, and it will chase away the night
Even if you shield your eyes, let it pour in, let it pour in

(vid) Chuck Girard ministering in song & wisdom – CA Feb. 2016 — No reason to get puffed up, just “your reasonable service” • Entertainment “worship” • “People don’t want straight truth anymore” and more honesty

49:20 “There’s a scripture that says ‘when you have done all these different things that is such is your reasonable service.’ … When you get to the height of heights, there’s no reason for you to take any credit for it or feel like you did something because that’s just your reasonable service.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. – Rom. 12:1

II 7:50 Most “worship” today is “entertainment worship,” people watching but not worshiping.

11:40 “People don’t want straight truth anymore. They want the ear tickling stuff” Continue reading “(vid) Chuck Girard ministering in song & wisdom – CA Feb. 2016 — No reason to get puffed up, just “your reasonable service” • Entertainment “worship” • “People don’t want straight truth anymore” and more honesty”

Chuck Girard: ‘Sometimes Alleluia’

Glorious, anointed, resting-in-God song from 1975 that I was blessed to experience as a young Christian! Christian music was awesome then, and will again be someday, when ‘ONE’ happens “that the world will know” (Jesus’ prayer in John 17)!

I was able to see Chuck a few years later, while attending the University of Minnesota — just him and a piano in the student union.

“Unmistakable background from Annie, Nell and Matthew.”

(music vid) Paul Clark: ‘Abide’ — “Your words are truth and life to me / It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide”

Four videos below:

Abide (Paul Clark)

The more I go on with you Lord
I find that I cannot afford
To stay away from your side
It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide

Your words are truth and life to me
They cleanse and sanctify me
I know it’s power can’t be denied
It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide

A child of God I know I am
I’ve been washed in the precious blood of the Lamb
But I haven’t touched the hole in His side
But in the vine I’ll Abide

To bring forth fruit this is my aim
And give the glory to Your name
To do the same you must decide
If in the Vine you’ll Abide

Jesus is the Vine

(vid) ‘Gotta Serve Somebody’ – Phil Keaggy, Paul Clark & Word of Life Church Band

“Gotta Serve Somebody”
by Bob Dylan

You may be a preacher with your spiritual pride
You may be a city councilman taking bribes on the side
You may be working in a barbershop, you may know how to cut hair
You may be somebody’s mistress, may be somebody’s heir

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

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.
