  • "O MY FATHER" A New Song Celebrating JESUS Christ the LORD

    3,038 views 5 years ago
    One Christmas, I sang a new song I had written especially for our Christmas piano recital at a local assisted living home. It was the last time I ever played that lovely grand piano in that fancy room. The management called me later and told me that I would not be welcome to come back.

    Why? Why would a song like this offend anyone at a festive Christmas party? Everyone loved the gentle, sleepy rendition of "Silent Night" that I played.

    Have you noticed it, too? Everyone loves the little baby Jesus at Christmas time, and yet they have no love for the real God-Man, the Creator and Saviour, JESUS CHRIST the LORD of Glory. I wanted to sing a song that described Him as the Word of God describes Him, and I was smacked down hard for doing it. But I don't care, because lots more people will see this video on Youtube than could ever hear me sing in a nursing home.

    Few know why God Almighty took on human flesh. Why did He condescend to humble Himself as the Person of Jesus Christ the LORD? And why did He invade His Own creation, knowing that He would be reviled, persecuted and hated? And especially, why did He come, knowing that a cruel death and eternal hell awaited Him?

    There truly was a moment in time when God the Son was conceived in the womb of a virgin by the Holy Spirit. There truly was a day, a place and a moment in time when a divine Child was born. Isn't that what Christmas is all about?

    How terrible that most people who feast and frolic on December 25th know nothing about any of these things! How tragic, that what we see all around us at Christmas time is an enormous perversion of God's truth. Alas, the foolish lies surrounding Christmas can make life tough for the redeemed soul. And it's not even the brutal Santa Claus thing that makes me want to hibernate. It's rather what so-called Christians say and do, making a mockery of our LORD and of His Gospel of Sovereign Grace. At Christmas time, the lost condition of the religious and the irreligious is magnified, and it brings sadness to God's people.

    Who hasn't heard the phony-baloney radio ads: "Howdy friends. All of us here at Pipkin Pipe Fitters want to remind you that JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON and thanks for making Pipkin No.1 in Central Ohio this year." My consolation is being able to turn the radio off. Praise God, none of these things can completely discourage the true believer from marveling at "the Word made flesh".

    The Bible says, "Thou shalt call His Name JESUS for He shall save His people from their sins." I long to meditate on this, desiring so much to be blessed in understanding more and more about the infinite miracle of the birth of the LORD Jesus. But beyond that, how the Christ of God came to die for those sinners chosen by the Father. They were given to the Son. He died for their sins, rose from the dead for their justification and is now at the right Hand of the Father in heaven, interceding on their behalf.

    If you believe this by the Spirit of God, you will be shouting, "Glory to God in the Highest!" The "peace on earth" declared in the Bible is the cessation of man's war against God. The blood ransom due to God for the sins of His people was paid by Christ, God's Holy Lamb.

    I prayed about all this and then, I remembered what the LORD Jesus said the night of His betrayal in the garden of Gethsemane (John 17). He was suffering the wrath of God for His people, and being made sin for them, His heart was breaking. He began sweating blood out of the pores of His skin. The Substitute Who would set the Israel of God free from sin, death and hell was in a torment of Body and Soul. In all this, He gave thanks to His Father in heaven for giving many great and wonderful gifts to the Son of God.

    This is the "giving" that is almost never mentioned at Christmas time. In my song, I tried to name some of the gifts given by the Father to His Son. I tried to express the incomprehensible miracle of the Birth, Death and Resurrection of God the Son AND of the people of God in their union with Christ.

    Everything was ordained by the Father in eternity past. The LORD Jesus agreed to do all that the Father ordained, and He did it with infinite perfection in complete obedience to the Father's will. Jesus said, "Lo, I come. In the volume of the Book it is written of Me, I delight to do Thy will, O My God."

    My own soul has been deeply edified meditating on these precious truths and I hope that this simple song will encourage you, too. Thanks be to God for His unspeakable Gift. Amen. Show less

  • "No Condemnation Now" Romans 8:1 Play all

    Our LORD Jesus Christ settled the matter of the salvation of his elect people long before you were born, long before this world was made! Oh yes, this is the truth of the Gospel of God's Sovereign Free Grace to chosen sinners in the Person and Work of His Darling Son, the LORD Jesus Christ. This is the God of the Bible - not the flimsy, cardboard god of modern evangelical will worship - not the sad, wimpy god who really loves everybody, but darn it all, will send you to hell if you don't be good. NO WAY! That's not the True and Living God! The Scripture declares that "...He shall save His people from their sins..." (Matthew 1:21), and for these chosen ones, the Israel of God, the elect from before the foundations of the earth, every stroke of the clock, every nano second in this dispensation of time, will bring the LORD Jesus Christ closer to their appointed hour of love. He will reveal Himself to each one by the hearing of the Word of God to their souls. They will know Him as the great and glorious God, Who Himself, took upon Himself the sin of His people. He suffered eternal hell on their behalf and thus, set them free from sin and death forevermore. Each child of the Living God, each bride of the Lamb, will hear the Word of God, will believe and will come to Him for cleansing, forgiveness, justification and life. For these blessed souls, "there is therefore now no condemnation", for they are indwelled with the Spirit of Christ, they walk in His Spirit and no longer walk after the way and fashion of this dying world. They recognize the false gospel of Cain and shun it, for it is blasphemy against their God and His Glorious Salvation. So tell me, what will you do to be saved? What would you give to know, for a certainty, that you have been cleansed of all your sin - past, present and future - and have received the gift of eternal life? What would you give to begin again, to begin a whole new day? What will you give to God to please Him? Do you deserve to enter into His Holy Hill, because you want to? Do you have a free will and have decided that serving God makes sense (as long as all your service will earn you something in the end)? ANSWER NOW THIS QUESTION: Will you give nothing? Will you do nothing? Can you simply believe that God has saved His people from their sins? Shall not the God of all the earth do whatsoever He is pleased to do with all His possessions?

    I now present this music to you in His Holy Name, for Jacob's chosen race will come. May God's people be encouraged to proclaim the majesty of their LORD and Saviour in this present distress. Here are videos of 8 of my new hymns - each one is based on a specific Scripture Text. Be sure to read the blog comments and listen to the excellent sermons posted with each new hymn.
