Announcing Fighter Verse Song Set 5 ::: The New CD is Here!

It’s done and ready for you to enjoy!

After more than a year of writing, recording, mixing and mastering – we’ve finally finished the fifth set of songs.

Here’s our sample video

Here’s the link to the Amazon page

Here’s the link to the downloadable songs

And here’s the official description:

The Fighter VersesTM Songs CD-Set 5 is comprised of word-for-word Bible passages (English Standard Version) set to music. These passages are specifically selected to help believers fight the fight of faith. The Fighter VersesTM Songs also coordinate with the five-year Fighter VersesTM Bible memory program from Children Desiring God.

This CD includes 33 songs (over an hour of music) from important and beloved Bible passages from 19 books of the Bible. The songs were creatively written and recorded to make Scripture memorization easy and fun.

Musical styles include folk, a cappella, jazz, blue grass, pop, gospel and family songs. Tunes are easy to learn, fun for kids and enjoyable to listen to on repeat.

The songs include passages from Romans 8 (Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?), Psalm 84 (A day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere), Numbers 23 (God is not man that he should lie), John 8 (If you abide in my word), and all of Psalm 34. Your children will memorize scripture without even trying-and so will you! Companion CDs for Sets 1, 3 and 4 are also available, as is the Extended Set 5 CD (the Sermon on the Mount).

And here’s a section of one of the reviews:

Just as wonderful as the other CDs in the series, Fighter Verse 5 makes hiding God’s Word in your heart a delight instead of a chore. I use it in the car while I’m driving my kids to activities…an awesome way to memorize Bible verses with little effort! The upbeat songs are both vocally and musically pleasing, with a variety of tempos and styles represented. I’d highly recommend it for anyone!

===

In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Ephesians 6:16-17

Three more parts of the Armor of God:
Shield — Faith
Helmet — Salvation
Sword (of the Spirit) — The Word of God

And how do these gifts relate to armor?
Faith — we can use it to shield us from, and extinguish Satan’s arrows, like temptation and doubts
Salvation — a helmet that can protect us
The Word of God — Our sword – it is for us a weapon that we can use to attack the works of Satan, to take away the hold he has on so many souls, and any that he has on ours.

Again, these are the tools and the gifts you receive as a child of God. Use them!

Eph 6

===

Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.

Ephesians 6:14-15

Three Parts of the Armor of God:
Belt — Truth
Breastplate — Righteousness
Shoes — Readiness given by the gospel of peace

And how do these gifts relate to armor?
Truth — We have truth behind us – keeping our way firm
Righteousness — which those of us are moving more and more towards – we are less and less hindered by the negative consequences of sin, because we are sinning less.
Readiness — the gospel makes us want to move and to act with fearlessness.

These are the tools, the gifts you receive as a child of God. Use them!

Song by Scott Jamison – Played By Becki Warnock

Eph 6

===

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

Ephesians 6:12-13

It is a serious enough thing to consider standing up to all of the human enemies of God. But when we consider that that is not our only task, our situation become more sobering. We are fighting demons. We are fighting Satan. They are stronger than us if we stand alone.

But we don’t stand alone.

We stand with God.

His armor, his whole armor helps us to stand firm against the Devil and his army in the evil day.

Pray for God’s strength to stand today.

Eph 6

===

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

Ephesians 6:10-11

What if Paul had written, “Finally, be strong by yourself”, or “be strong in yourself and in your own strength”? What if he had said, “Put on the armor you make yourself, and try to stand against the schemes of the devil.”

If he’d said that, we’d all be doomed. Doomed to condemnation.

But we can thank our Lord that he didn’t say that. We don’t fight Satan alone. We fight in the strength that the Lord gives us every day.

Praise God!

Eph 6

===

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

1 Peter 1:3-5

So much good in this passage, so much good for us.

We’re born again to a living hope
To an imperishable inheritance.
We’re guarded through faith by God’s power. All the way to Salvation.

And what does this call Paul to do? It cause him to bless our God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Bless God. Praise Him. Worship Him. Honor Him.

His salvation is forever.

1 Peter

===

For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus

1 Timothy 2:5

There is implied bad news in this verse: We can’t get to God on our own. We need a Connector. We need a Bridge. We need a Door.

But happily we have one. He is a man. He is our mediator. He is one with God. He is Christ Jesus.

He is our Way to God.

Seek Him. Accept Him. Worship Him.

1 Timoth

1-18 Application for June 11-12, 2016 :: Psalm 86:5-7

===

For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you. Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; listen to my plea for grace. In the day of my trouble I call upon you, for you answer me.

Psalm 86:5-7

As I read this passage, it seems like this is a prayer from a person who knows that he has sinned and needs forgiveness. The suggestion is that if God wasn’t a forgiving god, we would have little hope that our prayers would be listened to and answered.

This is good news for sinful people who have days of trouble and who need grace and steadfast love.

Pray to this God. Trust this God. Call upon this God.

Isaiah 40

===

Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:30-31

Fainting, weariness, exhaustion. We all know what that feels like, especially when we feel alone and unsupported.

Wait for the LORD. Do His will. You will run and walk with strength that He renews.

===

Sung by Kevin Shull – Played by Phil Carlson

Isaiah 40

===

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.

Isaiah 40:28-29

The answer is yes. You have known and you have heard that the LORD is the everlasting God.

Here’s what else you’ve heard:
He created you and all things.
He never tires
He knows everything.
He can give you strength when you feel weak.

Ask him for strength.

Sung by Kevin Shull – Played by Phil Carlson

Isaiah 40

Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger.

===

Ephesians 4:26

Two things to point out with this verse
(1) Apparently, not all anger is sin.
(2) One way to be sinfully angry is to keep it.

God doesn’t want you harbor your sin for even twentyfour hours. So to keep it in your heart for months or years is destructive and goes against his will.

For good reason – long term anger will hurt you and your relationships.

What are you angry about right now? Should you talk to someone about it? Should you let it go?

Don’t let another night go by with this anger.
