http://christianforums.net/Fellowship/index.php?threads/free-worship-music-mp3.54632/

This link is to a free copy of a rearranged version of the early Pentecostal
Worship Son, We shall see the King.  The original lyrics and music can be found on the web, just the way John Vaughn wrote this number.

I walked into the sanctuary one day to practice and in addition to the regular musicians, Country, every one of them, there was a young College student trying to teach the lyrics and to help them rearrange the music.  I asked him if I was free to give it a shot and he said go for it.

I was, like Hank Senior, a country music singer that loved the Blues and Spiritual Numbers.  I told the Piano Player, Gene Thomley, to give me a C and "let's try an accapella intro.  As soon as I broke into the Spiritual Intro the kid broke a smile that almost broke his face. We worked the number a few times, each time adding another instrument and it was the opening number to the Worship Service that Sunday morning.

My wish is for each of you that here my rendition "right click the link and choose 'Save As' or 'Saves Link As,' burn the mp3 file to a CD and introduce your Church Family to a wonderful Worship Number, and may God bless your efforts.

Godlessness in the Last Days
2Tim. 3:1 But understand this, that (See 1 Tim. 4:1) in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be [Phil. 2:21] lovers of self, Luke 16:14; [1 Tim. 6:10] lovers of money, Rom. 1:30 proud, Rom. 1:30 arrogant, abusive, Rom. 1:30 disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 Rom. 1:31 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, [Titus 1:8] not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, 1 Tim. 3:6; 6:4 swollen with conceit, Phil. 3:19 lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having the appearance of godliness, but See 1 Tim. 5:8 denying its power. 1 Tim. 6:20; [Titus 1:14] Avoid such people. 6 For among them are [Titus 1:11] those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, 7 always learning and never able to 1 Tim. 2:4 arrive at a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Ex. 7:11 Jannes and Jambres [Acts 13:8] opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, (See 1 Tim. 6:5) men corrupted in mind and Titus 1:16 disqualified regarding the faith. 9 But they will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, Ex. 7:12; 8:18; 9:11 as was that of those two men. (ESV)

1Tim 4:1 Now See John 14:17 the Spirit expressly says that [2 Thess. 2:3-9; 2 Tim. 3:1]; See 1 Cor. 11:19 in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to 1 John 4:6 (Gk.); See Matt. 7:15 deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, spells out or defines the topic very well. (all red notations are for Chain Reference use but are, surely, not all inclusive.)

It is a popular maneuver today that we must not offend folks of other persuasions and this is tauted as the Christian thing to do. Jesus did not teach such a thing, although it is popularly laid at His feet and, as per the teaching of the entire Bible, we, Christians, followers of God are not called to never offend. The Gospel, itself, is like a sharp knife, dividing right from wrong. If I want to be popular, I can return to the stage, ditch my wife and give to the young and the old ladies exactly what they actually want from the Lead Singer of any band. Christians are offensive to the Lost man and as long as we follow God, we will remain so.


Everyone I have ever met wants the period after life to be heavenly, and with most, as long as it's not the Heaven described by God in His book, the Bible. Today, in the catholic Church, it is believed that a man and his wife will spend Eternity in wedded bliss. Remember the lust of the Wedding Night? This expectation defines the “lust” I speak of here. This has nothing to do with what God has taught, or in most cases, attempted to teach us, in the Word of God. There is no, zero, sexual activity in Heaven, please purchase a Hard Copy of the Naves Topical Bible Studies and study the subject without anyone, other than God
interceding on your thoughts and study.

We have been living in the last two days since Jesus gave His human body over to the Roman Guard Detail for the sacrifice required, by Him, for the forgiveness of sin. Now about verse 2 of 2Timothy, folks, as the Church of the Christ, we are a disappointing lot. Don't get me wrong, I've never seen an old barn that could not use another coat of paint but when I look at my wife it is not about the make up she wears. My wife understands that I loved and that I love her in a work uniform with no make up at all, I love that lady in any condition I happen to catch her in, at any time of the day.

Women, not always the same as ladies, today are consumed with their outward appearance, lovers of self. Men are no better inside the Church than they were, and likely are, in the clubs and joints I played in as a young man. I was a Soldier, Helicopter Crew Chief, Truck Driver, a Carpenter, a Switchboard Wireman, Forklift Mechanic and a few other occupations in a little better than forty years of my life. Yet, for all of my labor, I wore hundred dollar shirts when I went to the club, whether I was performing or not. I, just like the rest of the world was a lover of self and it was fed by pretty ladies of the evening and I believed the lie that I was happy... BUNK!

This is enough for a topic starter. As mentioned, I copied this from one of my Bible Study programs and it is a great study... if you will read the chain Linked Passages. Comments?

When Jesus live here He set the example, the model, we are to follow and though some have and always will debate the usefulness of any of the Jewish Bible, the facts are plain, it is Jesus we are to strive to become like, that we might live a successful life and when we study the four gospel accounts we find that the life of Jesus was so modeled after the Laws and the customs of the Jewish people that even the removal of his fore-skin was done on the proper day, in the proper manner.

Again, if we read John 1:1-3 we see that Jesus has always been and everything we see, He created. Jesus told us, and I agree, that if we love Him we will obey His Commands. The coveted Ten Commandments and, honestly, the other 603 examples of how to implement the Ten, are the Commands of my LORD. These commands were never meant to save a single person.

When Adam sinned, mankind, like it or not, inherited the sinful nature of our forefather and mom. God/Jesus never expected anyone to live a perfect life, He above any other knew we can not because of our inheritance. But, and there is that monster three letter word, but, if we are to ever attempt to follow Jesus we must learn from our teachers and the Ten, molded down to the Two in the Gospel accounts, are our teacher of what is sin. Without that knowledge we can never glorify God.

Folks have, since the first time I taught the Ten Commandments were, as Paul pointed out, our Teacher of Sin, have tried to slam the table with I am not bound by or I do not live under, the Ten Commandments. This is, as we said when I played High School Basketball, trash talk. It has nothing to do, in this case with what I was teaching. I do not live under my First Grade Teacher but at the same time I live on and by the principals she taught me. The same is true of the other seen grades I managed to live through. Teacher are to instruct, nothi8ng more and so it is with the Ten Commandments.

GOD'S UNLIMITED POWER

Proverbs 19:21
Romans 8:28
Jeremiah 29:11
Isaiah 45:6-7
Joshua 1:9

The study of the power of God a truly eye opening study. These five verses were intentionally extracted from the study located at http://www.openbible.info/topics/god_is_in_control in order to avoid posting an entire study list.

In the world and in the church I am often met with fierce rhetoric declaring my teaching on this matter heretical. I am guilty of, most often, taking the easy way out by asking these folks to read the entire book of Job, please. It appears that I am, today, considered to be unreasonable, asking people to read a whole book of the Bible.

But there is a rule I live by, concerning scripture, "If God had a thing recorded once in the scriptures, we need to pay attention. If God has directed anything be repeated, it is like unto highlighting a critical instruction on a set of Blue Prints or the highlighted path to a delivery point handed to a Driver by his dispatcher. If a thing is retold three times, it is not to be forgotten." The fact that God controls everything is recorded over and over throughout the whole of scripture.

Yet we have in the Church Universal a huge movement declaring that God is not in control of Hell, not in control of ISIS and not in control of my life. This is but one of the proverbial Match Boxes we seek to hold God in inside our pocket and purses. God is without limit, so much so that in my opinion, we do not yet and might never fully understand His unlimited power.

There is a product of extreme racism and the ¿leader? of the US, today, has proven over and over that  he and his wife are extremely racist.  The Federal AG, Eric Holder, is also a member of their class of human beings and suddenly with their aid and the aid of the liberal left press core the US is witnessing race riots once more, sad.

As a people watching old man I remember a lesson taught to me by a very nice Black Lady, lies always travel faster than the truth,  In Ferguson Mo. today we are witnessing this truth in action, just as we did in Florida with the ridiculous trial of George Zimmerman.  Darren Wilson, with a broken eye socket will stand trial for defending himself in the performance of his duties... sad.

Here comes that hill billy preacher again, ya'll watch him, he's a strange one, that one. Eph. 5:20-29 is, perhaps, historically, the most abused verse in the scriptures. It has been misused by everyone from King James to the Modern Day Televangelist to abuse women. You should see, immediately, that I appear to have gone crazy and added some verses. Well, guess what, I'm one of those silly people that if you were to look at my transcript it looks as though I learned very little but we're not here to discuss my Cs and Ds, but rather, I paid close attention to what the teachers said.
As a result of eight years of formal education, some college course by mail and a good bit of "hungry" research I learned to always pay attention to the context. Now, these verses are being drawn out of their "local" context but for the matter being discussed, these verses do form the required context to define the truth needed here.

The first three verses of this passage are, almost, never used together and when they are, verse 22 changes the implied translation, immediately. One of the most common perversions of this verse is it's use in the marital bed room. When viewed with verses 20 and 21, it becomes clear that this verse is applicable, NOT, in that context. when viewed in it' s entirety, it is, absolutely, clear that our wives are to submit to us, just, as we submit to God and there lays the problem.
I know very, very few men that have submitted their lives to God as an offering to Him. This is the submission we must learn to understand and that is very much a lesson we all, not need but, must learn and make a moment by moment driver of our lives. But there is sad news for the average man and that is found in verses 23-29.

Immediately we see in v. 23 that the husband is to be to his wife, the same sort of person to the wife that Jesus was and is to his bride, the Church. Jesus, not only was ready to, He died to redeem the Church. Just as Jesus died for His Bride the husband must stand ready to die to protect his wife.
Verse 24 standing by itself can be a woman' s nightmare but it does not stand alone. already we see that it is tied to the first four verses of this passage for contextual application and there is more to come. In verses 25 & 26 we find God/Jesus highlighting His previous statement. God did not use a Magic Marker to highlight and to emphasize a point, instead God would repeat the instruction to draw our attention to a fact or instruction and that is what we find here.

Now, remember, the emphasis is pointed at the male member of this union, not the wife. the husband is responsible to lead his wife on the path of righteousness. We are to love our wives so much that we seek to lead them to be glorious and the most valuable possession we hold. The husband is instructed to bath his wife in righteousness just as we are just a we, the husband, are to submit to the LORD for him to do unto us.

Finally we see the summary that amounts to stating the instruction the third time in one short passage. As a former warrior I have always paid a lot of attention to my body. Even today, as I prepare to leave this realm and to enter the next, I pay attention to my body mass. In that same manor I am to love my wife. I am not to view her as a divided portion of my life but rather I must view my wife just as I view my own body.

If any, and I do mean any, danger were to approach my wife, it is my intention to move between her and the danger that before anything might happen to her, it must kill me first. this understanding completely destroys the conventional understanding commonly used for this passage.

May God bless all of us that seek Him with wisdom.

1Co 11:1 Be ye imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ. (ASV)

Today, there are many houses built in vain. What am I talking about? The Bible teaches us that if we build anything without God we will fail. (Psalms 127:1) So many, without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit have problems finding a, practical Life application for this. Paul, in the title verse, makes it quite clear to those of us that have repented, accepted Jesus for our Saviour an quench not the Holy Spirit. We do not lead god into our ministries, no, it is exactly as Henry Blackaby teaches. We must learn to hear God's call. (Bill Taylor's intepretation of Mr. Blackaby's teaching.)

I took this course, early, in my Christian Walk and it has been a perpetual blessing to me, since. Henry teaches that we must learn to stand still, listen and watch to see where God is working so that we can serve God. Since that course, every time a task led by God comes to an end, a door closes, another door opens resulting in my having never been bored but rather, having been, always, bust for the LORD, my Master.

Also, early in my walk I began to sign my name to the articles with Bond Servant, followed by Bill Taylor and having done so, I've offended quite a few folks. Some have even informed me that they were children of God and as such, God owes them! Well, God owes no one anything. Am I also a Chil of God? Absolutely! But there was a Spiritual Transaction that took place on that cross when Jesus gave up the Spirit and was buried, He paid the price of ownership for this and for every sinner smart enough to accept the free gift of Salvation. The moment I accepted that gift I began to follow Jesus through the leading of the Holy Spirit and that means I have chosen to have the Spiritual piercing of my ear, making me the Bond Servant of Jesus and that means I am not the but a Child of God.

My prayers go with and for all that read this article.
