Bitter Sweet Symphony

Season 6, Ep. 114

Richard Ashcroft, song writer and lead singer for the British rock band "The Verve" penned one of the most memorable songs in rock history. He fought for the rights to it for twenty-two years and finally won. He said in a way "it felt life-affirming." The lyrics to his song were sadly mimicked in the two decade long battle for his song. He hauntingly asks in the chorus, "have you ever been down?" This podcast fits under the heading "Other Things." My hope is that it inspires you to keep on pursuing your dreams and your artistic creativity! God will push through the things he wants to flourish in spite of the garbage the world throws at you!

The New Jerusalem is...The Bride of the Lamb

Season 8, Ep. 171
In episode 170 we introduced the mini-cast series "The New Jerusalem Is...", focusing on Revelation 21 – Revelation 22:5 (part of the "Plain Revelation" series.) There is so much information packed into these verses about our future eternal home that it does not do justice to it to cover the material in one or two podcasts. These verses cry out for pause - to meditate over them for a few moments in the way a person does when examining a new wedding ring, taking in every facet of the beautiful gem. In episode 170 I read the passage, summarized it, and now begin the look at the first of the ten facets of the New Jerusalem that will be the ten part mini-cast. We deserve to camp out a few moments in this glorious prophetic vision of our future home as we begin 2022. Allow it to build you up with real encouragement and real hope! Share it with your friends today! Everyone needs the encouragement and advancement of peace in their lives!The New Jerusalem is…1. The Bride of the Lamb! 2. A place of eternal relationships! 3.
