The Minister of Music
He is a giant of man
He sets the tone for worship
And manipulates us till we can’t stand!
How is this even possible
In the great church of God
For the singing of the gospel
To turn into real bacchanal?
One day I stopped and watched as
The worship tone was set
And without a pause for reflection
It was jump up and wave as you sweat!
It was then that Barry Manilow’s
"I write the song that makes the whole world sing"
Stood up in front of me
For those words were the words of Satan
Yukking it up ever so gleefully!
Making Christians rely on their emotions
Will greatly make Satan’s day
When, appearing as an angel of light
He’ll get us not written down to disobey!
It is all a great deception
Priming Christians for the fall
When they shall run into the desert
Looking for the King of All - not Jesus!
The deception is really quite simple
Set your reason aside and just feel
How wonderful it is to bow down
And worship the one who fulfills your felt needs!
Reason, my friend, is the key that
Our God stipulated that we use
When it comes to living in this life
And not trust tingling sensations that confuse!
Yon minister does not work for King Jesus
His boss is Lucifer DeVil
The arch enemy, deceiver, Old Satan
Who wants to see us all dead and in hell
Jump up and wave - feel the spirit
Not the one that Almighty God sends down
But the one being sold by the Devil
To confound, lead astray, and break you down
Fire that Minister of Music
His music comes with hell's strings attached
To the agenda as written down by Satan
To cost you your robe and your gold crown!
Our God is not a god of disorder!
Our God is not a liar nor a thief!
Our God is not willing that any should perish
That’s you and me, friend, let’s seek relief!
Let’s seek relief from our Jesus - He’s faithful
Let’s turn to Jesus - He makes the Way
Let us invite God’s Holy Spirit
To lead us and guide us - lest we stray!
Reject the hot and sweaty emotion!
Reject the need to feel fire when you pray!
Reject the urge to empty yourself with a mantra
By repeating the same phrase ad nauseum every day!
Don’t let that Music Minister fool you
Into emptying yourself so he can prey
Upon the unwitting and the unwary
So keep your head on, watch unto pray!
That fallen angel who ministered in heaven
Hates us and has a despite
Against any that makes a claim upon Jesus
And has pledged to cost us our flight!
Believe the God of the Bible
He will guide you and hallow your prayers
Remember it’s the Almighty you are serving
Reject feeling, walk by faith - not in blind sight nor in fear!
