I am a believer and what is referred as born again believer/Christian in the Jewish biblical Jesus Christ as described and written about in the inspired written word of God being the bible. I have written some gospel songs and other songs in various categories of music and I play guitar, piano, bass, and other instruments and sing praise songs unto the lord. I honor the lord in various ways. As it is written.
Matthew 16:24 KJV “24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” (What so many refuse/fail to do).
You know the lord Jesus Christ said when you give let not your right hand know what your left hand is doing. There are many ways to give. Announce it not as you may lose your reward. Just give. Give to those who really need it directly if you can. Support those whom are "really" doing the work of God/Jesus Christ and preaching the gospel. My thought is beware of prosperity preachers preaching a lukewarm gospel or get everything you want which is no gospel at all. You can give in many ways.
I'm praising the lord in song and worship. Jesus Christ died and paid the price for your sins in full. You were purchased with a great price and are not your own. We can ignore that fact or accept it. Beware because as it is written
“If anyone’s name was not found written in the lamb’s book of life he was thrown into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:15). WAKE UP!
The gentile believers mostly know the Savor of the world as Jesus Christ known as (Emmanuel - God is with us) Some Jewish believers may know Jesus as Yeshua as written in the Hebrew Bible. As I say I wrote some songs praising the lord. They are around, some on video and some have been heard in the past. Sometimes I praise the lord Jesus on guitar or piano. Hope you can have a listen. Read the bible for yourselves and get to know the inspired, written word of God.
Like other people I came to know Christ when I found out whom Christ was not as I was mostly deceived than I came to know him and who he was/is. It was his doing and not just my questions. I became a seeker for answers and I prayed and turned to the written word of God which directed my path. Christ is the way, the truth and the life. He is real and risen and his gospel is true. The lord Jesus Christ came to seek and save the lost including me and YOU. He said my sheep hear my voice and they obey/listen to me. When you read the gospel and realize that so many people's lives were changed from this one man and you truly believe with your heart as you confess with your mouth you should/may come to discover that the son of the living God is real and there is no one like him. Again he is the Christ/Messiah/Anointed One and the Savior of the world. Don't be deceived. God is real and man is deceived greatly.
Musically speaking since being a child I had a passion and "perhaps" a gift for music. I love to create and write songs. I had/have a gift in sports and music. This includes playing musical instruments. Along the way I improved as I play guitar and wrote my own songs but was ignorant to the gospel. If I had not been I would had focused more on gospel music. The gospel tells us not to condemn and people do this. Use righteous judgment. The words we speak even in songs will matter. Repentance for sin matters greatly. If I have any such thing as talent it is because God gives us gifts. Many people use those gifts to worship the world and find favor with the world. A friend of the world makes themselves the enemy of God. Its enmity with God. Very true. Narrow is the way that leads to salvation. A little leaven leavens the whole lump. You can lose your soul if you hate/reject the biblical truth/Christ and follow the wicked ways of the world. But isn't God a God of love? Does a wicked evil/fallen and sinful world really follow the God/Christ of the bible? Most No! It self-worships itself and even darkness. Men loved darkness rather than light. Get Saved. Christ was mocked, rejected and hated and a man well acquainted with sorrow. And by his very own race/people. He is the rejected MASTER cornerstone. Yet! How many people are deceived? Even the elect would be as written. The lord Jesus Christ is the Savor of the world! There is no salvation in any other! Let me make it clear to YOU hell is real! What will it profit you to gain the whole world and lose/forfeit your own very souls? Wake up!!
Tillie Waal "The Prayer," by David Foster
I've supported Tillie for years and in this performance she sings for the lord Jesus Christ and her Christians friend. She really drives the song home with a great ending. God loves her and gave her a wonderful talent in which she uses to praise the lord. This is a WOW performance.
