THE STORY BEHIND THIS MUSIC Quite some time ago, while meditating my way through the Bible, I found myself writing song after song, inspired by the things I was reading. Since that time, an entire filing drawer has been filled with new songs that were birthed out of a hunger for God. In due season, however, a different dynamic forced it's way onto the scene, giving rise to the message of the CD before you. Several years ago, a series of severe trials came barging into my life that jarred me to the core of my being. They caused me to realize, at an entirely new level, the vividness and brazenness of demonic attacks that believers can sometimes experience. (1 Pet. 5:8) The ferocity of Satan's agenda can be staggering at times, and as he sees that his time is about to run out, an increase, not decrease, in his aggression is likely. (Rev. 12:12) That's why it's comforting to know that the Lion of Judah is on our side, and that He's promised to return and deliver His people. In the meantime, other HEAVENLY WARRIORS, the angels of God, have been commissioned to assist "the heirs of salvation" as we "run with endurance the race set before us." (Heb. 1:14, 12:1) May the grace of our God, by His indwelling Spirit, encourage and sustain you on your spiritual journey! - Mark J Rich Here are some of my liner notes for the songs on this CD. Hope you enjoy them! SONG #1 • I'VE SEEN A WAY Believers are to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, inspired by His sublime example. Though mightily endued with power from on high (Isa. 11:2, Acts 10:38), Jesus never flaunted His remarkable strength. Instead, He walked with humility and mercy toward all. Only when incensed by the wickedness of man did He express righteous anger, but never as a response to His own feelings being hurt. He was concerned about others and the honor of God. (Matt. 23:13-33, Jn. 2:13-17) What remarkable character and purity of heart were exhibited by our Lord Jesus Christ! SONG #2 • ENDLESS JOY The Bible reveals that in God's presence there "is fullness of joy" and at His "right hand are pleasures forevermore." (Psalm 16:11) It's true that the Christian life is not all peaches and cream, but there is, at the core of it all, an enduring joy found in the Savior. Perhaps you're familiar with this wonderful Scripture: "The JOY of the LORD is your strength." (Neh. 8:10) It's by the refreshing wind of God's presence and Spirit that we're able to carry on. In the battles of life, take refuge in the abiding love of Jesus. Let Him refresh and encourage your soul. SONG #3 • EMMANUEL 2000 With Emmanuel 2000, this CD is ready to get down to business. It's time for prayer and intercession! (1 Tim. 2:1) This song is a cry on behalf of Israel. It's addressed to the promised Messiah. (Isa. 7:14) It begins as a traditional carol then quickly evolves into an up-tempo, messianic worship song. As you join in the spirit of intercession and worship, may the Spirit of Messiah well up in your soul, inspiring you to "pray for the peace of Jerusalem." (Ps. 122:6) SONG #4 • HEAVENLY WARRIORS Angels are an exciting, biblical reality. They not only serve as heavenly warriors and messengers, but as "ministering spirits to the heirs of salvation." (Heb. 1:14 KJV) It's humbling to know that such glorious beings are willing to serve on our behalf, but how fortunate we are that they do! SONG #5 • THE BOOK OF JOB BLUES Any time Satan targets a person to savagely buffet their life, they learn how difficult spiritual warfare can be. It's no "walk in the park," especially if, like Job of old, you have no idea where the attacks are coming from. This song is a fun way of hearing Job's ancient story in a brand new way. It's a virtual synopsis of the whole Book of Job. SONG #6 • LION OF JUDAH A pastor revealed after church one morning that he deliberately avoids preaching the "hard side" of Christ. He said this without a hint of misgiving. He specifically mentioned avoiding Jesus' return as a conquering Warrior. It was only a day or two later that this song came to birth. The pastor's policy ignores an integral facet of Jesus' overall mission and character, producing a lopsided view of the Savior. We're to treasure the second coming of Christ, not ignore it or shun it as if it's something distasteful. The Lord of the second advent will be the same as the first. SONG #7 • MY ONLY HOPE Whether your need is eternal salvation or deliverance from a dire situation, there's only one name you can count on in life, and that's the name of the Lord! SONG #8 • OVERLOAD (Instrumental) If you've ever been through a season of intense spiritual warfare, you know what it feels like to be on "overload." The circus music heard midway in this song reflects the kind of frenzy one feels when the darts of the enemy come sizzling your way. Have you ever read the promises of Psalm 91? Aren't they amazing? May the comforting assurance of God's protection and grace be experienced in your own life as you continue your journey in Christ! SONG #9 • LIARS (Based on Revelation 21:8) This song may not be everyone's "cup of tea." It's certainly not a sweet worship song designed to produce an emotional high. It's subject is difficult, but one of great importance, as evidenced by the frequency and diversity of it's treatment in Scripture. There are few things in life as painful and destructive as being lied about. That's why one of the Ten Commandments is this: "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor." (Exodus 20:16) That's also why the Bible, when listing "seven abominations" that God "hates," places "a lying tongue" right next to "hands that shed innocent blood." (Prov. 6:16-17) Innocent lives can be destroyed as easily by malicious lies as by physical violence. No wonder "the father of lies" (John 8:44) exploits the "deceitful tongues" (Ps. 120:2) of pliable humans to slander God's people and others in general. This is one of his favorite tactics of spiritual warfare. As "the accuser of the brethren," (Rev. 12:10) Satan knows it's a lot easier to have someone lied about and destroy their reputation (Prov. 22:1) than for the victim to prove their innocence and restore their credibility. This is one of the chief reasons that "liars" are listed with "murderers" as those who "shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire" (Rev. 21:8) - that is, unless they repent. SONG #10 • A SEEKER'S PRAYER Do you ever feel lost or disconnected from God? Or do you ever feel like you're struggling to know Him - as if He's an aloof, far distant Being? This song is a brief but deeply felt prayer that perhaps you can relate to and add your "amen." SONG #11 • A GENTLE QUIET (Instrumental) Music has a way of soothing the soul, especially the peaceful sonorities of a grand piano and lush string orchestra. In the trials and tribulations of life, all of us need a little "gentle quiet" at times. SONG #12 • HOLY PREPARED God has an agenda for each of His children. He wants us to be holy prepared as His people. (2 Tim. 3:17) He wants us to have a passionate heart to know Him in truth and to walk in the power of His Spirit. But He doesn't want us to stop there. He wants us to possess the heart of a servant. He wants us to care about people in need and to minister in the power He's given us. And last, but not least, He wants us to be warriors of God, fighting the darkness that keeps people bound. He wants His Word to go forth from our lips, aptly addressing the needs of people, and shining His light on the path before them. (Mal. 2:7, Prov. 25:11, Ps. 119:105) SONG #13 • NOT OUR OWN Can you imagine a calling in life greater than being God's servant? The promised Messiah was called by this title in several ancient prophecies. (Isaiah 52:13, Ezekiel 34:23-24, Zech. 3:8) As privileged disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, we're to follow in our Master's footsteps. Like Jesus, we're to follow the Father's great mandate. We've been called to minister to the broken-hearted and to set the captives free! (Isa. 61:1) This song traces our calling as warriors, ministers, and ambassadors, as we seek to fulfill our ultimate calling - as servants of God and of men! SONG #14 • NEARING SHORE (Instrumental) This song was written for a friend who'd spent two years in the Navy and was seeking to recover from the trauma of war. "Nearing Shore" seemed a suitable metaphor to reflect his journey toward physical and emotional healing. But the song also calls for a spiritual application. Like physical battles on the earthly plane, believers are subject to grievous attacks, and apart from God's grace, some of those attacks - by sinister, spiritual forces (Eph. 6:12) - are capable of exacting an enormous toll. (1 Peter 5:8, Dan. 7:21, Rev. 13:7) Consequently, believers share with earthly soldiers a similar goal; that of making it safely home. The great difference of course is the "home" they are seeking. For the Christian that home is the kingdom of God. It's a place in the "Father's house." (John 14:2) SONG #15 • I NEVER KNEW If you'll allow me a bit of license at the end of an otherwise spiritual CD, here's a little love song that "arrived" just when I thought my CD was finished! I came across a gorgeous piano accompaniment from GarageBand and knew I just had to write a tender little ballad to showcase it's beauty. So I went to work lengthening the accompaniment, writing a melody, and adding the vocals and instrumental parts. I intentionally made the lyrics a bit ambiguous, hoping that a wide variety of listeners could identify with the song. I hope you're as blessed by the song as my own heart has been. SONG #16 • A CALLING FROM THE LORD (Sample) The full version of this song is not yet ready for release, but it's message is urgent for this hour. That's why a sample has been included on this CD and it's lyrics have been printed below. How greatly our nation needs to turn back to God! If we don't truly humble ourselves in a substantial way - with God's people leading the way (2 Chr. 7:14) - the divine pattern of dealing with nations doesn't leave us much hope for the future. (Job 12:23, Ps. 9:17) Only repentance - and "bearing fruit in keeping with repentance" (Matt. 3:8) - can restore the sure mercies of God. Here are the lyrics from my song, 'A Calling From the Lord' - VERSE 1 There's a calling from the Lord to our nation to return unto Him. There's a calling from the Lord to His people to pray and cease to stray. We're being summoned to seek the One who has our lives in His hands. We must recall who so blessed this land. It was the Lord, not man! CHORUS 1 If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray. (2 Chr. 7:14) If My people who love worship and praise will turn from their own wicked ways, I'll return and heal their land as only I really can. Seek My face each child, each woman and man! (Joel 2:16) VERSE 2 There's a calling from the Lord. Will we hearken to His voice and obey, or turn a deafened ear and continue to stray still further away? We've been so favored for many years, for God was reverenced in this land. But where today do we really stand? Do we fear God or man? (Matt. 10:28) Thanks for taking the time to read these album notes! May God richly bless you! Mark.
