Death Disbanded



Tune: Regent Square

('Light's abode, celestial Salem')

Acts Chapter 2 parts

******

Peter explained at Pentecost

Coming of the Holy Ghost (the Holy Spirit)

People of Israel, my voice hear

I will show you true and clear

Jesus, being delivered by

God's foreknowledge, He did die

 

But did rise again the third day

It was God's determined way

By His counsel and His will sure

Christ now lives for evermore

Though you people Him crucified

Now He lives, reigns, none beside

 

God did raise up His Son, having

Loosed the pains of death, we sing

Through Him destroyed death, the curse o'er

Good news to meek, humble, poor

For 'twas not possible that He

By death should e'er holden be

 

For King David, prophet of old

Here his words they be retold

He did speak of Christ, that He be

Resurrected sure, here see

Through prophetic Psalm this promise

Came to pass, we not it miss

 

And so here poured out God's Spirit

Hearts and minds energised, lit

Comes to take up residency

In all who repentant be

Who will accept Christ as Saviour

May we turn, penitent stir

 

Lord of life, o'er death victorious

Eternal life you bought us

Paying the cost of our sins so

We your forgiveness may know

O bright hope and great salvation

Offered unto each nation

        You trumpet the true message of salvation and that is Jesus.

        I was listening to a Messianic Rabbi, Dr. Kirt Schneider a while back and he said his father disowned him for giving up the Jewish faith and becoming a Christian.

        His Dad said, where does it mention the name Jesus in the Torah?

        Dr. Schneider was unable to answer his dad, but when his father died he found that the name Yeshua means salvation in Hebrew.

        Rabbi Schneider said he wished his father was still alive, because salvation (Yeshua) is written all throughout the Torah.

        Just some food for thought. 🙂
