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!

2-3 Application for Jan 21-22, 2017 :: Psalm 16:11

===

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Psalm 16:11

God is not a joy-killer. God is not a pain delighter. God is not a stodgy rule-maker.

He puts on the road to life.
He wants to have joy. Not a little joy but full joy.
He doesn’t want us to have fleeting good feelings. He wants us to have pleasures forevermore.

Take it. Take his gift. Go into his presence. Go to his right hand.

He has made a way through His Son.

2-2 Application for Jan 14-15, 2017 :: Romans 10:13-15

===

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

Romans 10:13-15

This passage has the Gospel order backwards on purpose – as if to say “how can we get to our goal?”

Let’s look at it forward:
There must be senders to send preachers
Preachers must be sent to make sure the people hear.
The people must hear so they can believe.
They must believe so they will call on him.
They must call on him they will be saved.

And we want people to be saved. So we must send preachers.

And you – will you call on the name of the Lord?

2-1 Application for Jan 7-8, 2017 :: Isaiah 40:8

===

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.

Isaiah 40:8

Nothing is permanent. Nothing lasts forever. Even beautiful things that God has created, like flowers.

But God’s word, and all the truth about Him, and all the promises for us. They last forever.

One million years from now, God’s word will stand.

Song by Kevin Shull

===

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Psalm 23:5-6

Forever is an important word. Good things that we experience for a short time are not like the gifts you can enjoy your whole life. But even more precious are the blessings that God has in store for us throughout eternity.

And what is our eternal gift? To live in the house of the LORD. Forever.

If you are in Christ, if the LORD is your shepherd, your cup overflows and you have a table prepared for you.

Praise God. Thank him. All the days of your life.

1-48 Application for Dec 25-26, 2016 :: Psalm 23:3-4

===

He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 23:3-4

If you are a child of God, He is with you. So you don’t have to fear the days ahead, even if things are very dark. He will lead you with his strength and righteousness.

And his leadership will show you how to act more according to his will.

Your tendency used to be to run from God and his will, but he has changed you. Thank God.

1-48 Application for Dec 17-18, 2016 :: Psalm 23:1-2

===

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.

Psalm 23:1-2

We need a shepherd. Without a shepherd, we would be wild animals, lost and homeless.

Our shepherd is Almighty God.

We need rest. He knows we need it. He makes a place for us to rest and gives us reason to be calm.

Psalm 23:1-2

1-47 Application for Dec 10-11, 2016 :: 1 John 1:8-9

===

If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:8-9

You are a sinner. You have sinned. You shouldn’t think you haven’t. You shouldn’t tell others you haven’t. It is deceptive to do that. That’s the bad news.

The good news is there is forgiveness. God is faithful. He is just.

He can cleanse you from these sins. Confess them and he will.

1-45 Application for Dec 3-4, 2016 :: Psalm 141:3-4

===

Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips! Do not let my heart incline to any evil…

Psalm 141:3-4

Here’s one of the few verses that indicated that the state of heart is connected and related to what we do with our mouth.

What we say shows who we are.

So it is wise for us to pray that God would protect us from foolish and destructive talk.

So pray!

Song by Jeff Warren

Psalm 141:3-4

1-45 Application for Nov 26-27, 2016 :: Psalm 125:1-2

===

Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people, from this time forth and forevermore.

Psalm 125:1-2

Don’t you find it striking that if you’re saved, God compares you favorably to Mount Zion?

A mountain is stable. A mountain is not shifting sand. A mountain lasts a long time.
And Mount Zion is holy and unique.

You are like that mountain. Find joy and peace in that.

Psalm 125:1-2

1-44 Application for Nov 19-20, 2016 :: John 14:2-3

===

In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.

John 14:2-3

A good question to ask, when meditating on a passage, is – what if this wasn’t true.

What if we had no place in heaven? What if Jesus wasn’t preparing a place for us? What it He wasn’t coming back to take us to himself? What if we couldn’t be with Him when we died?

This would be very bad news. There would be reason to dread the future.

But…

For those who are in Christ –
We have a place in heaven.
Jesus is preparing a place for us.
He is coming back to take us to himself.
We will be with Him forever!
