Age of Messiah

ChristTriumph

When I was about eighteen, and living a secular life, my friend and I were in a bar.  The band was playing “Age of Aquarius”.  The microphone was offered me at some time, but for some reason, my voice croaked, an unusual event because I normally sing well.   Some years later, now saved in my soul, I knew why.  The LORD didn’t want me to sing that song!  Astrology is a no-no for Christians. It is getting advice from something other than God. God wants Christians to go to Him with problems!  (This is not astronomy, the science of the planets and stars, but the perversion of astrology.)  

But now, there is another reason:  I turned this into a “redeemed” song.  Now, for those who love this melody, they can sing it with redeemed words!  (While I was praying this morning, I actually sang part of this song so I went to work to create it.)

AGE OF MESSIAH

***

When the blast of the seventh angel sounds

And Jesus Christ is deemed as King

Then peace will now be found

And of His love, we will sing!

 ***

This is the dawning of the Age of Messiah, 

Age of Messiah!

Messiah, Messiah!

“Harmony and understanding

Sympathy and trust abounding

No more falsehoods or derisions

Golden, living dreams and visions”  (Original author) 

The Messiah’s revelation

And the soul’s “true liberation”

Messiah, Messiah!

***

When the kingdoms of the earth

Have become, the Kingdoms of our LORD

Then peace will reign on earth

And love will be the norm 

This is the glory of the Age of Messiah, 

Age of Messiah!

Messiah, Messiah!

Let the Son shine, Let the Son shine in

The Son shine in.
