Hi there!

 

Welcome to Barah Ministries…a Christian Church based in Mesa, AZ…my name is Pastor Rory Clark.

 

Songs do a great job of communicating the truth of the Word of God.  Here at Barah Ministries, we are blessed to have one of the best songwriters, best singers, and best music producers, all wrapped up in a single package.  Her name is June Murphy… and her songs are amazing at communicating the truth of the Word of God.

 

For the next several lessons you’ll be listening songs from her second album.  Today’s song is I WILL…

 

TODAY’S SONG

I Will

 

Volition.  One of the things you were born with is volition.  You have the ability to choose.  Quite often you will hear people say, “I didn’t have a choice.”  The truth is you ALWAYS have a choice.  You may not like the choices you have…all of the choices you have may put you in a tough position…but you always have a choice.

 

It is especially true that in the matter of God you have a choice.  For example, John, Chapter 3, Verse 36 gives you the most important choice of your life…

 

JOHN 3:36

He who believes in the Son (the Lord Jesus Christ) has eternal life (the resurrection life, right at that moment); but he who does not obey the command to believe in the Son will not see the resurrection life, but instead the wrath of God the Father (the Lake of Fire) abides on him.”

 

Faced with this choice, what will you do?  Because your choice is the expression of your will…your I WILL.

Let’s hear June sing today’s song…I WILL...a song about the most important choice you will make in this life.

 

I WILL

 

Once upon an eternity

Long before time began

The Godhead held a conference

The Father had a plan

 

I WILL

 

The Trinity decided

On the Divine Decree

Before the foundation of the world

They were in unity

 

I WILL

 

Christ said, “I will create perfect creatures with a free will”

“I will allow every creature to fall”

“I will provide for their salvation”

“Dying on the Cross for them all”

 

I WILL

 

“I will allow those rejecting the offer”

“To wallow in their condemnation”

“I will give to those who believe”

“Election…predestination”

 

I WILL

 

“I will…I will…I will…I will…I will”

 

I WILL

 

Then Christ created perfect angels

Satan was the first to fall

He lied to the other angels

They believed it all

 

I WILL

 

They turned on the Lord Jesus Christ

Who was before the world’s foundation

Satan wasn’t satisfied

With his appointed station

 

I WILL

 

Satan said, “I will ascend to the heavens”

“I will raise above the stars my throne”

“I will sit in the north assembly”

“I want worship of my own”

 

I WILL

 

“I will ascend above the heights of the clouds”

“I will make myself like the most high”

“These are my five ‘I wills’ ”

“I am filled with pride”

 

I WILL

 

“I will…I will…I will…I will…I will”

 

 

I WILL

 

Man was created to resolve this conflict

With Adam’s first sin, all were felled

But omniscient God was not surprised

The Divine Decree would be upheld

 

I WILL

 

The rebellion of angels and men was forgiven

There’s not much more to tell

 

I WILL

 

Christ said, “I will create perfect creatures with a free will”

“I will allow every creature to fall”

“I will provide for their salvation”

Dying on the Cross for them all”

 

I WILL

 

“I will allow those rejecting the offer”

“To wallow in their condemnation”

“I will give to those who believe”

“Election…predestination”

 

I WILL

 

“I will…I will…I will…I will…I will”

 

I WILL

 

And I said, “I will believe in Christ as my Savior”

“I will lead an obedient life”

“I will confess my sins to the Father”

“I will choose to walk in the light”

“I will fix my eyes on Jesus”

“For the rest of my life”

 

 

I WILL

 

“I will…I will…I will…I will…I will”

“I will…I will…I will…I will…I will”

 

Thanks June, for this beautiful and instructive song.

 

PSALM 95:1

O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord…

Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.

 

We dedicate the closing moments of our lesson today to anyone watching or to anyone listening…who is lost…and you are lost if you do not have a relationship with the One and Only God…the God who loves you unconditionally…the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Acts, Chapter 2, Verse 21 says…

 

ACTS 2:21

‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

 

Right now, you can tell God the Father that you believe in His Son, and that’s the

moment of eternal life for you.  Believing in the Lord Jesus Christ is the best, and most important decision you can make in your lifetime.  A simple, five-word request gets you to heaven…“Father, I believe in Christ.”  For a thief being crucified next to Jesus, it was a nine word request…Luke, Chapter 23, Verses 42 and 43…

 

LUKE 23:42-43

And the repentant thief was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!”// And Jesus said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

 

Let today be the day you stop putting off the best decision of your life. You won’t ever regret believing in the Lord Jesus Christ and counting on Him to accomplish your salvation.  Believe in the Lord…Jesus Christ…and you will be saved…then, get to know Him!  Grow, within the sphere of His grace, in the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
