Daily Music #59

Und mal wieder ein Lied, das immer geht und mich damals in meiner Jugend etwas geprägt hat. :)
DC Talk – Jesus Freak

(oh oh oh)
(oh oh)

(1)
Separated, I cut myself clean
From a past that comes back in my darkest of dreams
Been apprehended by a spiritual force

And a grace that replaced all the me I’ve divorced
(Rap)
I saw a man with tattoo on his big fat belly
It wriggled around like marmalade jelly
It took me a while to catch what it said
Cause I had to match the rhythm
Of his belly with my head
‚Jesus Saves‘ is what it raved in a typical tattoo green

He stood on a box in the middle of the city
And claimed he had a dream
()
What will people think
When they hear that I’m a Jesus freak
What will people do when they find that it’s true
(oh oh)
I don’t really care if they label me a Jesus freak
There ain’t no disguising the truth
(oh oh oh)
(ain’t no disguising the truth, no I ain’t hiding the truth)
(2)
Kamikaze, my death is gain
I’ve been marked by my Maker

A peculiar display
The high and lofty, they see me as weak
Cause I won’t live and die for the power they seek
(Rap 2)
There was a man from the desert with naps in his head
The sand that he walked was also his bed
The words that he spoke made the people assume
There wasn’t too much left in the upper room

With skins on his back and hair on his face

They thought he was strange by the locusts he ate
The Pharisees tripped when they heard him speak
Until the king took the head of this Jesus freak
(repeat 2x)

People say I’m strange, does it make me a stranger

My best friend was born in a manger
People say I’m strange, does it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger
(repeat 2x)
What will people think
(What will people think)
What will people do
(What will people do)
I don’t really care
(What else can I say)
There ain’t no disguising the truth
(Jesus is the way)

Daily Music #48

Und nun noch ein Musikvideo aus Final Fantasy und einem Song, der irgendwie passt. :)
DC Talk – Supernatural

This world’s a tortured place to be
So many things to torment me
And as I stumble down this road it takes a toll
These days and nights I turn to You
No human hand can pull me through
No cosmic force or magic brew will ever do

But I can see it coming
You’re not so far away
‚Cause I can feel Your power
Surging through the whole of me

(1)
God is there and He is watching
He tells me all is well (it’s supernatural)
God is there, there’s no denying
He’s supernatural (it’s supernatural)
Supernatural

Beyond this physical terrain
There’s an invisible domain
Where angels battle over souls in vast array
But down on earth is where I am
No wings to fly, no place to stand
Here on my knees I am a stranger in this land

I need an intervention
A touch of providence
It goes beyond religion
To my very circumstance

(repeat 1)

(2)
God is there and He is watching
The signs are everywhere (the signs are everywhere)
God is there, there’s no denying
It’s supernatural (it’s supernatural)
Supernatural

(bridge)
In six days, the universe was made
Supernatural
And from the dead a man was raised
Supernatural
They say He walked across the waves
Supernatural
And I’ll believe it to my grave

But I can see You coming
You’re not so far away
‚Cause I can feel Your power
Surging through the whole of me

(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
(God is supernatural)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

(repeat )

(Some things just can’t be explained)

Daily Music #32

Eine Band, der härteren Gangart und christlichen Texten gehört zu den Bands, die ich live sehr vermisse. 2006 konnte ich sie wenigstens einmal live auf dem Freakstock sehen. Danach leider nicht mehr. Das zweite Album „Undeceived“ ist trotzdem bis heute eines der besten Alben von Extol.
Extol – Ember

There is a fire to light a sleeping heart
A wish to see the spirit take control

Crush the chains that hold you down
And let yourself be filled with fire
Wake up and realize the dream you’ve lived
Was set up by the liar

A broken heart, a kneeling soul
The spirit will set you on fire
To give you strength to reach the ones
Who search the truth with a deep desire

Crucifixion of the ego
Death and burial of the old

Crush the chains that hold you down
And let yourself be filled with fire
A broken heart, a kneeling soul
The spirit will set you on fire

There is no spiritual authority
Outside obedience of God

A broken heart is needed to reach this state
Divine encounter with the living God

Hossa Talk – Ein erfrischender christlicher Podcast

hossa-talk_400x400Die Christen sind ja oft langweilig, beten die ganze Zeit und haben überhaupt nie Spaß am Leben. So sind vielleicht manchmal die Vorstellungen über einen Christen. Klar sowas gibt es auch, aber eigentlich sind es auch nur ganz normale Menschen.

Und etwas interessante Ansichten vom Glauben und die Welt haben Jay und Gofi. Zwei ehemalige evangelikale Prediger, die jetzt was anderes machen. Sie haben auf jeden Fall interessante Folgen dabei und für mich als alten Podcasthörer ist es doch auch mal ganz erfrischend etwas anderes zu hören. Manches was auch etwas tiefgründiger ist. Daher lohnt es sich auf jeden Fall mal in Hossa Talk reinzuhören.

Außerdem haben die beiden auch immer ein paar Kosten für Server, Strom, Vorbereitung, Nachbereitung. Wer will kann denen auch gerne was in den Hut werfen. Das kennt man ja auch schon von Holgi
