I would like to introduce you to Michael John Clement and two of his songs. You can listen and download the songs for free using the link below.
“I seem to be surrounded by Volcanoes these days.
First, I have started to read a book about Pompeii, the Italian city that was destroyed by the enormous explosion of Vesuvias in AD 79. This was a thriving metropolis, where men and women lived out their everyday lives oblivious to what was happening deep underground and building up, which would result in an eruption of such magnitude that at one point one and a half million tons of ash, lava and rock were shot thirty kilometres into the sky, per second. Yes, per second. The resulting cloud of debris literally ‘froze’ people into statues, which we can see in Pompeii today. And now, our twenty first century technology is grounded by another eruption. This time in Iceland. By a Volcano, which I cannot even, pronounce let alone spell. All our well thought out plans brought to nought. Chaos in the air, on land, and on the high seas.
The worship songs being introduced this month are very appropriate.
‘Ancient of Days’ is a title given to God who tells us that He has been the one who set the mountains in their place, ordered creation and presides over it. He also tells us that He threw some mountains at one stage, (which presumably explains why we have some upside down strata in some places in the World.) It is a timely reminder that we worship a magnificent God, whose power is unlimited and yet his grace towards us reaches down to the smallest areas of our lives.
The second song is ‘Shout to the Lord’. We are mid way between Easter and Pentecost, two important dates in the Christian calendar. Easter, that speaks of Christ’s death on a cross to remove everything that separates us from God, and His Resurrection three days later, showing His power over death and sin; and Pentecost, the time of the giving by God, and receiving by people, of the Holy Spirit. Given that we might have the power to live the life of Jesus here. Our ‘Shout to the Lord’, is one of thanks for victory in Christ, liberation by His Lordship, praise for His power and thanksgiving for His faithfulness.
Enjoy the songs, and I hope that they will inspire in you both a sense of awe and a desire to proclaim His greatness. ” (By Ken Swan, Senior Elder, Chase Family Church, UK)
