Buy this CD ONLY if you desire to enter into God's Presence!
on November 28, 2012
This CD is amazing, I could not wait for it to come out; I pre-ordered and was so delighted when it came; I was in the middle of doing my sisters hair and put this CD on but had to stop doing her hair several times because I was so attracted to God, so inclined to worship! This CD will lead you into the Throne Room of God...if you are yielding :)
I LOVE everything about this CD, from the composition of the music, the glorious lyrics, the order of the songs; these worship leaders are gifted, but you know what makes this CD so awesome? It is about glorifying our great Lord, Yahweh! Some contemporary worship, I've noticed, tends to be more self-focused (i.e.God, I love you because you're my friend, I love you because you're my comfort), as opposed to glorifying God, magnifying who he is (for ex. God is King, God is Beautiful, God is Ruler, GOd is Holy, it involves removing self from the equation). The worship is so simple, "Our GOd reigns", for example, just lifts Yahweh up and the chorus repeats, "Our God reigns" over and over again. Other great examples are "Waiting Here for You" (they literally just say, "We're waiting for you...because it's You we adore...singing HalleluYah") and last track on the 1st disc, "Alleluia". Every single song on this CD is blessed and simply beautiful (full disclosure: i have only listened to the first CD; i've listened to it over and over again. I borrowed the CD to someone else shortly after buying it and it has not yet been returned to me). So if you love God for who He is and not just in relation to what HE does for you, you will NOT be able to resist worshiping Him, bowing to Him when you put this CD on. I am told the person who borrowed my CD allowed others to listen to it and they enjoyed it during all night intercession, so that relieves my pain of not having the 2nd disc.
I worshiped with Martin Smith at a Randy Clark/Global Awakening Conference in October (well, from the mosh pit; he was onstage) and we sang many of these songs, and were led into the Presence of God. We were able to attract the Spirit of God quickly and in unison, even with over 5k attendees. I do not mean to put an emphasis on songs, but music is a gift from God that I believe we must give back to Him! We MUST present pure, unadulterated, worship to our Loving King. Some of these songs are simply heavenly, they will make God's sweet, tender heart melt. I am quite sure they must be recorded in the song books of heaven.
The lyrics to "Song of Solomon" kept playing in my heart over and over since I left the conference and I COULD NOT WAIT for the release of this CD. Simply put, If you desire and hunger for God's presence, put this CD on and start telling God, "I want more of You, GOD!!!!!!!!!
