This is the throne room of God. We declare that every knee on earth must bow before the King of Kings. We declare that every sickness and death must bow at Jesus’ name. We are a holy people. We are called sons of God. We declare by the Name above all names, “The dead in sin will rise!” Jesus, Your name is power. It is in You we have freedom. His heart desires ours, therefore love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your might. [Hear, O Israel: The Lord your God is one. Declare His praises through all the earth. Hear, O Israel: The Lord is one.] So in this time of grace, we feel the aches and pains of a fallen creation that is crying out, “Reveal Your sons, Oh God! Free us from bondage to sin!” So to this broken world, I will prophesy, “Live again!” I will prophesy; Kingdom come! I will prophesy; Your will be done! I will prophesy; Jesus come! I will prophesy, “Live again!”
Track Name: Overcome
I am not of this world. My old ways have died and I stand before You a new creation. No longer merely flesh and blood, my spirit now resounds with Yours manifest, reigning in me. And this is eternal life: that I would know You and Your Son whom You sent; Jesus Christ the Lamb of God. By my home I am rejected, and my home has cast me out. But I’ll stand with boldness and declare, “We have overcome the world!” But there are those in this world who long to steal our freedom. But greater is He who is in us than he who is in this world. We’ll stand aloud and we’ll light the flame. We’ll stay awake and we will cherish Your name. This world will look down on us like fools. But we will stay awake and usher Your rule. Jesus, You gave up Your life for me. So I will gladly give my life up for You. You came and died for the sins of man. You died on a cross and rose up again. “Go forth. Speak the truth. Go forth. Fight for freedom.” And every nation on earth will bow before You, my king. You’ve overcome the world. [You died upon the cross, You rose up from the grave, and You’ve overcome the world!]
Track Name: Halal
[With a fire burning, we’ll dance and shout to praise Your name. Your kingdom come, it’s Your will, Jesus. With a fire burning, we’ll stand with boldness and proclaim, Your kingdom come, it’s Your will Jesus.] Hallelujah! Before I knew You I was bound and broken. There was a noose on my neck. I was a slave to all the lusts of this world. They said I’ll never be free. But in Your grace You sent Your One and Only to free this captive of sin. And now Your Spirit dwells and reigns within me. You broke the chains and set me free. Unreserved passion is bursting within. All out abandonment is what I long for. I’ll gladly play the fool just to be close to You. Jesus, You’re all I truly need. Holy Spirit, rain down on us. Bring with You freedom and joy. Holy Spirit, break all bondage. You hold the keys to death, and so I declare, “The dead will raise at the sound of Your Name!” And they will know that You are God. Lift this up: Kingdom come!
Track Name: New Identity
The brokenness of our world demands a healing response: to preach the gospel and see all creation reconciled to God. This is a call for awakening within the hearts of the children of God. Know who you are in the kingdom: a holy, righteous people bought by the blood of the Lamb. Our new identity has placed a call upon our lives to proclaim the gospel of Christ to a dead world as a body born of fire, filled with the Spirit, and sent from the throne of God. You are the faithful witness, firstborn from the dead, redeemer of creation, You cleansed us with Your blood. [We are Your sons and daughters, coheirs through Christ alone. We are reconciled. It is no longer I who lives but Christ who lives in me. We are reconciled.] He became sin, who knew no sin, that through Him, we might become the righteousness of God. We are the righteousness of God. You are the faithful witness, firstborn from the dead, redeemer of creation, You cleansed us with Your blood. Nothing the blood. We are reconciled by Your blood, oh Lord. By Your blood oh Lord, we have been redeemed. We are reconciled. Holy Spirit, come and reign!
Track Name: Glory to God
Before the world was made, before You spoke it to be, You were the King of kings. Yes, You were, yes, You were. And now You're reigning still, enthroned above all things. Angels and saints cry out. We join them as we sing: Glory to God, glory to God, glory to God, forever. Glory to God, glory to God, glory to God, forever. Creator God, You gave me breath so I could praise Your great and matchless name all my days, all my days. So let my whole life be a blazing offering; a life that shouts and sings the greatness of our King! Glory to God, glory to God, glory to God, forever. Glory to God, glory to God, glory to God, forever. Take my life, let it be, all for You and for Your glory. Take my life and let it be Yours forever!
Track Name: Revival
Revive Your church again, oh God. Restore Your bride again, oh God. This is the cry of my heart: for Your to come and see Your presence in this place. The sick are healed , the lame will walk, the mute will sing before You my King. The slaves set free, the broken made whole, the blind will see the dead will live. This is the cry of my heart: for You to come and dwell. Refine our hearts that we might love You more. [How can we speak of signs when all we’ve been chasing is our own selfish gain and sin that’s encasing. Send grace for when we go astray. We turn back to You. Contrite hearts are the proof!] How many times have I turned from Your path to become another wanderer? Do I truly sing to Elohim or am I merely the Conjurer? God, how far does grace extend? Does Your love have a limit? When I stand before Your throne of grace, will You welcome my repentant heart? Do You see beyond our imperfections to see our hearts that are changed by Your love? Will Your pour Your presence on a broken people? Spirit, we need You here! Your fire in our hearts. Your love in our lives. Your Word in our mouths. Lord, send Your fire down. You’re all that we need!
Track Name: Bear Fruit
Repent, prepare, our Lord Jesus is coming. Wake up, prepare, our King Jesus is coming. The skies will open and Jesus will descend on a white horse. He is faithful and true and in righteousness He will judge and make war. Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus Christ. He is Lord of all. He is great and marvelous. Those who are foolish and do not prepare, He will cut in half. And those who do not repent of their sins will be subject to His wrath. He will tread the winepress and out of His mouth will come a sharp sword. He will slay the nations, Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. [The ax is laid to the tree. Now decide who you will be. He is coming. I charge you with this sentence: to bear fruit of repentance. He is coming. The day of judgment is in His heart.] If the church has fallen asleep, can it even be called a church at all? We speak of grace but we cannot forget to preach the law. All liars will burn in Hell and all who lust are adulterers. They claim to know Him but are deceived for it’s themselves they serve. Do not sleep as others do. Watch and keep a sober mind. Preach the Word with love and truth. Repent for Jesus Christ is coming again. Maranatha, Lord. You are righteous in all Your judgments. In every way, oh Lord, You are holy God. Where will you go when you die? Heaven or Hell? Jesus chose you because of His love for you. Repent or perish. Where will you go when you die?
Track Name: Towdah
Have You seen this broken place? Do You see beyond this face? Do You have enough grace for this wretched thing called me? What if my soul is too far gone? Would You listen to this song? Would You hear my desperate cry? For when I see Your holiness, I cannot look, I cannot stand. I am unclean, I am a man, I am broken, I am damned. But God, You’re gracious to me! [You bled and died, and You ransomed me. Holy are You, God. You broke the chains and You set me free. Holy are You, God.] So here I am, with a broken heart. I long to know You, but I don’t know where to start. So let me live as I believe and let me become who I am. Cause God, You’re gracious to me. [Holy, Holy, Holy are You, God. Holy are You, God.]
