Your eyes like blazing fire
Pierce into our souls
Holy Purifier, You lead us where we go
The above lyrics are from a new song we are sharing today called "We Will Overcome", from our second EP titled If My People...
A few years ago we had the awesome privilege of being part of a play written by Mark Eulo called the Unveiling the Son of Man: The Revelation of Jesus Christ - Part 1 based on the first five chapters of Revelation.
In the play, local musicians represented each of the seven churches by presenting a song about that church. Our assignment was the church of Thyatira and we wrote an original song titled "We Will Overcome".
The above lyrics show that the Lord Jesus Christ is speaking to the church in Thyatira. The people loved the Lord and were doing good works for Him, but they were becoming tolerant of sexual immorality and idolatry seeping into their church by a false prophetess.
Jesus' message was for the church to remain faithful to Him, and not to let themselves be deceived. That same message is for us today.
And you call upon the name of your god, and I will call upon the name of the Lord, and the God who answers by fire, he is God.” And all the people answered, “It is well spoken.” (1 Kings 18:24)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:19)
Lord, we thank You for purifying us of our sins. Help us to depend completely on You as we seek to do Your will. Amen.
