“Kingdom Now!” by Slaves Wage

Song: “Kingdom Now!”
Artist: Slaves Wage
Album: Wisdom’s Call (2015)
Genre: Metal

“Kingdom Now!” is the final track on Slaves Wage’s 2015 album, Wisdom’s Call. Slaves Wage is a Christian metal band from Arlington, Texas, and Wisdom’s Call is their third album. As vocalist Jeff Saenz explains on their website, the band’s name is based on Romans 1:1 and Titus 1:1 where the apostle Paul refers to himself as a servant of Christ. Jeff is a believer in fulfilled eschatology.

“Kingdom Now!” points out that many are looking around at negative things in this world and proclaiming that “the end times” are here, but that Jesus doesn’t agree because He promised to come back in the lifetime of His disciples. Instead, the kingdom of God is present in our midst right now. Here is the video to “Kingdom Now!” followed by the lyrics:

Lyrics

(vs. 1)
Falling stars, bloody moon
Darkened sun, burning sky
Earth quaking, mountains shaking
Blood, fire, hail and ice
                                                                                  
The language of the end times
It’s at hand; can’t you see?
If so won’t someone tell me
Why Jesus don’t agree?

(vs. 2)
Nations are fighting nations
Lawlessness everywhere
Disease, death, war and hunger
False prophets are not rare
                                                                                     
We’re living in the last days
Some would say, most vote “Aye”
If so won’t someone tell me
Why God’s word won’t comply?
 
(vs. 3)
Why do you seek the Living
Among the dead and gone?
Why do you wait for something
That has already come?
                                                                                    
We’re living in the last days
Some would say, most vote “Aye”
But Jesus said He’d come back
Sometime in their lifetime!
                                           
(Chorus)
Kingdom came!
Kingdom come!   
Kingdom now!

“In the River” by Jesus Culture

Song: “In the River”
Artist: Jesus Culture (Kim Walker-Smith)
Album: Let it Echo (2016)
Genre: Worship

“In the River” is the fourth track on Jesus Culture’s latest album, “Let it Echo,” released in 2016. It was written by Chris Quilala, but is sung by Kim Walker-Smith. In this video Kim shares the story behind this song. The central message of this song is joy, she says in another interview, and it’s based on four Scripture passages: Nehemiah 8:10, Psalm 46:4, Galatians 5:22-23, and Revelation 22:1. 

Taking a quick look at two of the passages she mentions, Revelation 22:1-5 concludes John’s vision of New Jerusalem, the city of God, which begins in Rev. 21. It describes the water of life flowing through the city as a river, with fruit-bearing trees on either side, whose leaves are for healing the nations. In Ezekiel’s similar vision he saw the river bringing healing and life wherever it flowed (Ezekiel 47:1-12). Isaiah saw New Jerusalem being created “as a rejoicing and her people a joy” (Isaiah 65:18, 66:10). Psalm 46:4 brings all this together: “There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.”

Here is the video to “In the River” followed by the lyrics:

Lyrics

There is a river where goodness flows
There is a fountain that drowns sorrows
There is an ocean deeper than fear
The tide is rising, rising

There is a current stirring deep inside
It’s over flowing from the heart of God
The flood of heaven crashing over us
The tide is rising, rising
Bursting, bursting
Up from the ground we feel it now
Bursting, bursting
Up from the ground we feel it now

We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river

There is a current stirring deep inside
It’s over flowing from the heart of God
The flood of heaven crashing over us
The tide is rising, rising
Bursting, bursting
Up from the ground we feel it now
Bursting, bursting
Up from the ground we feel it now

We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river

Break open prison doors
Set all the captives free
Spring up a well, spring up a well
Spring up a well in me
Nothing can stop this joy
We’re dancing in the streets
Spring up a well, spring up a well
Spring up a well in me

We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river
Spring up a well, spring up a well
Spring up a well, spring up a well
Spring up a well in me

We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river
We come alive in the river

“God’s Promises Fulfilled” by T.L. Mayle (AlphaMelee)

Song: “God’s Promises Fulfilled”
Artist: T.L. Mayle (AlphaMelee)
Genre: Rap

“God’s Promises Fulfilled” is a rap song written by T.L. Mayle (AlphaMelee). Ms. Mayle identifies as a preterist, and first wrote this as a poem before turning it into a rap song in 2011. Here’s “God’s Promises Fulfilled” on YouTube, followed by the lyrics to this song:


Lyrics

When they proposed the earth revolved around the sun,
And the earth wasn’t flat, and that Jesus had come,
It was common belief that those notions were false
And to prove them true, there is always a cost.

When I set out to prove preterism was wrong,
I came to believe it, and it didn’t take long.
I came across truth, that for years I had missed.
If you honestly want to know, don’t forget this:

If you study the culture, and history too,
If you see the Old as a shadow of the New,
When you look at the typology of the High Priest,
And the forty year Exodus, at the very least,

If you learn the figurative language they all knew,
Stop letting traditions speak louder than truth,
As you perceive passages in covenant light,
And audience relevance takes you out of the fight,

If you let the time statements speak for themselves
And remember the Bible interprets Itself,
If you take out your presuppositions of when,
All the Scriptures you thought were obscure now make sense.

Daniel was given prophecy for a time not near,
And its fulfillment took six hundred years.
When Revelation was written, Jesus stood ‘at the door.’
Can the time be ‘at hand’ two millennia or more?

The law wouldn’t pass until all was fulfilled,
And no more unblemished lambs are killed.
If He hasn’t returned, then we’re still under law
And the strength of the sting of death isn’t stalled.

The Gospel was preached to the whole world at that time,
They wouldn’t finish going through the cities in Palestine.
Jesus said John the Baptist was ‘Elijah to come’
And foretold that John would remain till it’s done

When Jesus said ‘Some standing here wouldn’t die,’
Is ‘this generation’ every one that goes by?
And ‘coming on clouds’ was a figure of speech
That meant judgment, and those who had pierced Him did see.

Do you think that the ones standing there were mistaken?
For thinking He was coming in their generation?
Or do you think we’re the ones who are misinformed?
Let me ask, do you want to know truth, or conform?

Is it not strange – most adopt the mindset
That now is the time of ‘already, but not yet’
It’s the only way that they can explain
Because they don’t understand the nature of the last things.

What’s the nature of the new heavens and new earth?
Perhaps we should see what the old ones were first.
If you understand the nature, you’ll understand the time
I know it’s a shift of the old paradigm.

It’s like telling the Jews who still await their King
That they’ve missed all the wonderful things God did bring.
Like them, we want something that we can observe,
A visible king on a throne, on the earth.

Remember His Kingdom is not seen with these eyes,
Nor is Living Water that’s been realized.
Perhaps you’ve been drinking with God, Face to face.
There’s so much more to discover, in this age of grace!

“The Light” by Illuminandi (Polish Band)

Artist: Illuminandi (Poland)
Album: The Beginning (2005)

Genre: Rock/Metal/Folk/Classical

“The Light” is a song by Illuminandi, a group from Poland, from their 2005 album “The Beginning.” Illuminandi’s style is described on their Facebook page as “Rock/Metal/Folk/Classical.” They further describe themselves as “a six-piece Polish band that performs a unique style of rock music in which heavy guitar riffs are as prominent as haunting cello and violin melodies.”  Here is “The Light” on YouTube, followed by the lyrics to this song, which are based on Isaiah 9:1-7:

Lyrics

The people walking in darkness
Have seen a great light;
On those living in the shadow
A light has dawned.

You’ve enlarged the nation
Increased their joy;
They rejoice before you
As people rejoice at the harvest
For you have shattered the yoke that burdens them,
The rod of their oppressor.

Because to us a child is born
A son is given to us.
And the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called

Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace
There will be no end
He’ll reign over his kingdom
Upholding it with justice and righteousness
From that time on and forever.
