00:00 we are Wes and Lynn Gorospe we are Songs of
00:03 Scripture and I just wanted to start out
00:08 with a little testimony but I wanted to
00:15 let you know how I got started singing
00:17 songs of Scripture it was kind of by
00:19 accident I had written this song out of
00:24 John chapter 14 verses 26 and 27 and it
00:30 says the counselor the Holy Spirit whom
00:33 the father will send in my name he will
00:35 teach you all things and bring all
00:38 things to remembrance and it says peace
00:41 I leave with you my peace I give to you
00:43 not as the world gives do I give to you
00:46 don't let your hearts be troubled
00:47 neither let it be afraid so it was about
00:54 2000 something in 1999 somewhere in
00:57 there that I shared that song on a
01:01 Wednesday night at the church where we
01:03 used to go to at a Bible study and you
01:06 know it's no big deal I just shared the
01:08 song and I had no idea the power of the
01:14 word at that time but a year later you
01:18 know women's meeting this this woman
01:21 came up to Lynn and say you're West's
01:23 wife aren't you she says yeah and this
01:27 lady said that for an entire year she's
01:32 been holding on to this this scripture
01:35 you know peace I leave with you and it's
01:38 been it had been ministering to her for
01:40 an entire year through all the trials
01:43 that she was going through and she was
01:44 going through some really heavy stuff so
01:47 she came home the Lynn came home and
01:49 told me that she says you need to you
01:53 need to record that but my thought about
01:56 my my music was well it's just not
02:01 record worthy it's it's not worth
02:04 recording you know but but she convinced
02:07 me that I should go so I made a made a
02:12 an appointment with Tim record producer
02:15 and so he helped me to enhance the song
02:20 and then we recorded it and that became
02:23 number one of so far we've recorded 31
02:28 songs we just finished CD number 3 which
02:32 should be coming out shortly which is
02:35 life-changing words the first one was
02:37 words of life second one was words of
02:41 faith and hope and this one is
02:43 life-changing words so that just tells
02:46 you you know even though we have a poor
02:49 opinion of how we sound it doesn't you
02:53 know God isn't looking at what we sound
02:56 like he just wants to hear our voice so
02:59 what I wanted to talk about tonight is
03:01 the joy and triumph of singing the word
03:05 this is part one next week will be part
03:07 two Jesus was probably as joyous and
03:12 triumphant and overcomer as we know of I
03:16 think you would all agree to that and we
03:19 all want to live a life of joy and
03:22 triumph but you know the frustrating and
03:25 discouraging part is that you know
03:28 sometimes joy never comes you know or
03:33 sometimes it's delayed you know and and
03:37 so why is it well usually the the main
03:41 culprit is ourselves and the main
03:45 culprit within ourselves is our tongue
03:48 we haven't tamed our tongue and so in in
03:53 James it says the tongue is a fire a
03:56 world of iniquity and the time is so set
04:00 among our members that it defiles our
04:03 whole body the tongue sets on fire the
04:07 course of nature and out of the same
04:11 mouth proceeded both blessings and
04:13 cursings so he says you know it
04:16 shouldn't be this way it really
04:18 shouldn't be this way now here's a
04:20 perspective for you
04:22 when Jesus sacrificed himself for us he
04:28 triumphed over everything right he
04:30 triumphed over evil triumphed over the
04:32 devil he tried over everything and he
04:35 took the devil's authority away from him
04:39 and so now you know the word says in
04:42 Matthew 28:18 us is all Authority has
04:45 been given to me in heaven and on earth
04:49 so the interesting thing is that Jesus
04:55 did a very remarkable thing he said and
04:58 it says in Luke 10:19 that behold I give
05:03 you that's me and you all of us all of
05:07 us that believe he says I give you
05:10 authority to tread on serpents and
05:12 scorpions over all the power of the
05:14 enemy and nothing shall by any means
05:17 hurt you so when you when you look at
05:22 that in John it says you know I tell you
05:26 the truth anyone who believes in Me will
05:30 do the same things that I've done even
05:33 greater words because I'm going to the
05:36 Father in other words Jesus gave us two
05:39 permission to do what he does you know
05:44 we can do what he does so how do we do
05:47 that well you know one of the problems
05:51 you will start with the problems one of
05:54 the problems that we have is that we
05:57 don't believe that we have this
05:59 authority you know we you know we just
06:03 like myself and my songs I don't believe
06:06 that they're good enough now some of us
06:08 don't believe that that we have this
06:10 authority that they God has actually
06:12 given us this authority but the word
06:14 says that he he has it says right there
06:17 you know I give you power to tread over
06:20 serpents and scorpions another thing
06:22 that that is a problem is that we
06:26 haven't taken the time to learn about
06:28 our authority in 1st Corinthians chapter
06:32 12
06:33 it talks about spiritual gifts gifts of
06:36 healing and miracles and words of wisdom
06:40 words of knowledge you know discerning
06:42 of spirits how many how many of us have
06:47 given ourselves to the really study
06:49 about how that works you know and and
06:52 and the authority that we have in Jesus
06:54 you know these are things that that out
06:58 of ignorance we are out of maybe a lack
07:04 of feeling worthy that we don't look
07:06 into it and and I think that also holds
07:09 us back
07:10 you know and and a lot of it has to do
07:12 with our tongue you know all too often
07:16 what happens more than more than
07:20 anything is that we the authority that
07:23 God gave us we abdicate by giving it
07:28 back to the devil now how do we do that
07:31 well the only tool that the devil really
07:34 has because Jesus took all his authority
07:39 away right so he doesn't have an
07:40 authority what authority does he have
07:43 well the only thing that he can do it
07:45 really is trick you and lie to you he's
07:48 he's a father of lies and so what he
07:51 does is he lies to you so that you
07:56 abdicate your own power and this is how
07:59 he does it through your tongue you know
08:04 the Bible says in Proverbs death and
08:07 life are in the power of the tongue and
08:09 they that love it shall eat the fruit of
08:11 it so when we when we give up our
08:17 authority like like well how would we do
08:22 that the devil comes to us and says yeah
08:28 you're not good enough you know you're
08:32 never gonna amount to anything you're
08:37 always gonna be sick you know your your
08:41 voice is just not good enough don't sing
08:44 out loud
08:45 people learn you know that's not good
08:47 he's lying to you you know so when we
08:52 live in triumph when you're happy you
08:58 want to sing all right
08:59 usually you know most people are happy
09:02 when they're taking a shower so they're
09:04 seen you know but but the reason why we
09:08 sing is because there are so many
09:10 benefits their enormous benefits to
09:12 singing especially singing the scripture
09:15 and Lynn is gonna go over a lot of those
09:17 benefits in a minute but but psalm
09:20 107:20 says that he sent his word and
09:25 healed them and delivered them from all
09:28 their destructions you know and Romans
09:32 10:17 says so faith comes by hearing and
09:35 hearing by the Word of God so we get
09:38 faith through the word we get healed
09:43 through the word and the thing that we
09:47 need to know is Jesus himself is the
09:50 word in in John chapter 1 verse 1 it
09:54 says in the beginning was the word and
09:56 the word was with god and the word was
09:59 god in in verse 14 assists and the word
10:03 became flesh and dwelt among us and we
10:07 beheld his glory as of the only begotten
10:10 of the Father now who's that talking
10:12 about obviously is Jesus okay so he is
10:16 the word and God sends Jesus the word
10:20 and he's given us his word you know it's
10:23 all tied together you know and that's
10:25 where our authority comes from when we
10:28 when we ingest the word you know that's
10:32 where authority comes from and that's
10:34 where freedom comes from wherever Jesus
10:36 is Holy Spirit is and it says that where
10:41 the Spirit of the Lord is there's
10:42 Liberty so if you're feeling free and
10:45 you're feeling happy chances are you
10:48 might want to sink or maybe not so the
10:55 tongue again you know with the tongue we
10:58 can bless our
11:00 you know I'm I am free I'm healthy you
11:06 know I'm happy I'm prospering you know
11:09 I'm hanging on to the Word of God I'm
11:11 learning I'm learning more about God I'm
11:14 getting closer to God
11:15 you can bless yourself with your tongue
11:17 just as well as you can curse yourself
11:20 with your tongue you know like I said
11:22 before you know I'm always getting sick
11:24 I'm never gonna get promoted you know
11:27 people always think I'm doing dumb
11:29 things you know basically your tongue is
11:34 your tongue is the thing that gets us in
11:36 trouble and we need to we need to to
11:41 harness our tongue you know Jesus said
11:44 out of the abundance of the heart the
11:46 mouth speaks
11:47 and with your words
11:50 you're either justified or you condemned
11:54 that's what he's saying he's saying you
11:56 can bless yourself or curse yourself now
12:00 the word is so powerful and this is why
12:05 we sing it the you know the word god is
12:08 the most powerful thing in the world and
12:11 and you get the best results you get the
12:17 greatest triumphs you get the most joy
12:20 from the word all of all of these
12:23 benefits come from knowing the word
12:26 because Jesus is the word so you can't
12:32 the thing is you can't just read the
12:35 word you can't just give give
12:41 intellectual knowledge you know I have
12:44 intellectual knowledge of the word you
12:46 have to be a doer of the word you have
12:49 to ingest the word yeah it needs to
12:52 become a part of you that's why Jesus
12:55 said if you abide in me and my words
12:58 abide in you then you can ask for stuff
13:01 because because when the word abides in
13:04 you it builds your faith and when you
13:06 have faith the things that you say will
13:08 come to pass it's
13:11 it says in in Joshua 1:8 study this book
13:15 of instruction continually you know I
13:19 don't know how many times in the
13:20 scripture says that again in some Psalm
13:23 1 it says you know think about the word
13:26 night and day you know and you will
13:29 prosper in in mark chapter 9 it says
13:34 anything is possible for the one who
13:37 believes and in in in Mark 11 it says
13:43 this is really important it says for
13:46 truly I say to you this is Jesus
13:48 speaking says for truly I say to you
13:50 whoever shall say to this mountain be
13:54 removed cast into the sea and shall not
13:58 doubt in his heart but shall believe
13:59 those things which he says shall it
14:03 shall come to pass he shall have
14:06 whatever he says now this is Jesus
14:09 telling us that our words count you know
14:13 so you know it's it's not again you know
14:17 James talks about it's not enough to be
14:19 a hear of the word but we have to be
14:22 doers of the word we have to be living
14:26 the scriptures you know and I found that
14:29 the best way to do that to get the
14:32 scripture inside of you is to sing it I
14:34 mean you don't have to be you know
14:37 creating you know professional songs or
14:41 anything like that but just to sing you
14:45 know even if you sing one note so with
14:49 that I'm gonna turn it over to Lynn
14:50 she's going to talk about the benefits
14:52 of singing Scripture and then after that
14:55 we're going to activate the word
15:05 hello so this is the first month of the
15:09 Jewish calendar Nisan the season of the
15:13 barley harvest and our celebrations this
15:15 month are focused on the Feast of the
15:17 Passover and the resurrection of Jesus
15:19 we remember how God delivered his people
15:22 from captivity and we remember when
15:24 Jesus gave his life as a sacrifice so
15:27 that we have new life on earth and an
15:29 eternal life in heaven with our God
15:31 Jesus did everything necessary and he
15:34 did it perfectly with his live in 1st
15:38 Peter this morning when I was spending
15:40 time with the Lord he brought me to
15:41 first Peter 2:9 and it says you are a
15:45 chosen generation a royal priesthood a
15:48 holy nation his own special people that
15:51 you may proclaim the praises of him who
15:54 called you out of darkness and into his
15:56 marvelous light who once were not a
15:59 people but now are the people of God who
16:03 had not obtained mercy but now have
16:05 obtained mercy
16:06 this was God's call to ancient Israel
16:09 and it is his call for the redeemed
16:11 Church of today we are a royal
16:15 priesthood our authority comes from
16:18 Jesus part of our priestly service is to
16:21 worship God just as ancient Israel took
16:26 the promised land in righteous worship
16:28 so it will be for us as we humbly praise
16:32 the Living God we will witness his
16:34 mighty works of healings miracles
16:37 salvations deliverance breakthroughs
16:39 with great joy this is a crucial time in
16:43 history I bless each of you with a
16:47 melody and a new song I bless you with
16:50 the faith to partner with God in this
16:52 era I bless you with faith and hope to
16:55 believe that we will be in awe of God's
16:57 mercy and love for us we have so much to
17:01 be thankful for
17:02 let's sing in the harvest fields I'm so
17:05 excited about this new season so in
17:09 studying
17:11 you know one thing I want to say is the
17:14 Lord has been giving wess melodies he
17:17 hears in songs he hears in melody and
17:22 the Lord has been giving him the
17:23 scripture songs for over 30 years and
17:25 that's why I convinced him that he
17:27 should make a CD because he had all
17:31 these gifts in the guitar case and he
17:34 said to me you know I spent time with
17:36 the Lord and the Lord said what are you
17:37 doing with the gift I've given you so no
17:41 I don't hear in music I hear in words so
17:44 it's always been hard for me to sing out
17:47 and so I'm really speaking to those who
17:49 think oh when I come to church I sing
17:51 quietly or when I'm out and about I just
17:55 don't think of singing the scriptures I
17:57 think of reading the scriptures and I
17:58 might read them out loud but I feel like
18:02 we need to start singing we've lost that
18:05 gift of singing the ancient Israelites
18:07 knew that they they sang their
18:09 scriptures and it's powerful so some of
18:12 the things that I discovered are on page
18:14 1 of your notes session 1 they help
18:19 singing the scripture helps us connect
18:21 with God God created each of us with a
18:24 unique voice and God loves the sound of
18:27 your voice and Zephaniah 3:17 it says he
18:31 will rejoice over you with singing so my
18:34 question is if God is singing over us
18:36 shouldn't we respond to him we believe
18:40 that God loves to hear our voices and
18:42 spend time with us he wants to know how
18:45 he wants us to know how deeply he loves
18:47 us so I exhort you tonight to sing the
18:51 Scriptures singing the Word of God frees
18:54 our mind to worship God with our heart
18:56 and our spirit when we choose to focus
18:59 our attention on Jesus his love for us
19:01 removes fear and doubt worship including
19:04 screep singing the scriptures allows us
19:07 to experience God's presence hear God's
19:09 voice experience God's presence I'm
19:13 sorry
19:14 feel God's love and have revelation of
19:17 the Word of God
19:19 experiencing God's presence strengthens
19:21 our spirit and our
19:22 and increases our faith singing
19:27 scripture overpowers negative thoughts
19:29 and distractions this prevents us from
19:32 going down that path of fear and doubt
19:34 and discouragement negativity cannot be
19:37 in the same atmosphere as God's love and
19:40 truth the word keeps us connected to the
19:42 Lord especially during the storms of
19:44 life in Romans 10:17 it says so then
19:48 faith comes by hearing and hearing by
19:50 the Word of God hearing is knowing the
19:55 Word of God Romans 12:1 and 2 says
20:00 present your bodies a living sacrifice
20:01 holy acceptable to God which is your
20:05 reasonable service and do not be
20:08 conformed to this world but be
20:09 transformed by the renewing of your mind
20:11 that you may prove what is that good and
20:14 acceptable and perfect will of God and
20:16 my emphasis tonight is on the renewing
20:19 of our mind I feel like we are
20:21 transformed when we sing the Scriptures
20:23 we are in his presence when we sing his
20:26 scriptures his word and Ephesians 5:18
20:31 says be filled with the spirit speaking
20:33 to one another in Psalms and hymns and
20:35 spiritual songs singing and making
20:37 melody in your heart to the Lord
20:41 worship is our response to God's
20:43 magnificence and wonder but it is also a
20:46 weapon of warfare singing the word is a
20:49 powerful tool the Word of God is active
20:52 alive and powerful the Bible describes
20:56 singing as part of the military strategy
20:58 remember the adversary is still tempting
21:01 us to worship Him or not at all pray and
21:07 sing God's promises when you have a need
21:09 I I do this I search the scripture
21:13 scriptures what what is the answer to my
21:16 prayer and then I sing that and I pray
21:20 that and I wait on the Lord
21:23 Zechariah 4:6 says not by might nor by
21:27 power but by my spirit says the Lord of
21:29 Hosts psalm 28:7 i love this you are my
21:33 strength in my shield
21:34 every danger when I fully trust in you
21:37 help is on the way I jump for joy and I
21:40 burst forth with ecstatic passionate
21:42 praise I will sing songs of what you
21:45 mean to me God would love to hear that
21:47 if we I wish I could do this every day
21:50 but if we would wake up to the Lord like
21:53 that singing to him really feeling his
21:57 presence and thanking him so number two
22:02 of course singing helps us to memorize
22:05 neuro scientists agree that singing
22:08 information with a simple tune makes
22:10 memorization easy teachers have been
22:13 teaching children to sing their lessons
22:15 to remember math facts science facts
22:17 history facts music and languages the
22:20 Book of Psalms is a natural way to begin
22:22 - singing the scriptures because it is a
22:24 book of poetry in the Psalms we find
22:27 relatable circumstances images and
22:29 language to give voice to our feelings
22:32 our sorrows our needs our thankfulness
22:34 our joy our trust in our victory psalm
22:38 59 16 says but I will sing of your
22:41 mighty strength and power yes I will
22:44 sing aloud of your mercy and
22:45 loving-kindness in the morning for you
22:47 have been to me a fortress and a refuge
22:49 in the day of my distress singing helps
22:52 to internalize the world the word
22:54 singing the word helps us to remember
22:56 the promises of God we fill our heart
22:59 and our mind with the truth and
23:01 life-giving Word of God and then we
23:04 worship and pray with faith when our
23:06 mind and our heart agree with God's
23:07 truth so number three are the physical
23:14 benefits of singing and I thought this
23:16 was really interesting mute our singing
23:19 and music calms us it lowers our stress
23:23 level it strengthens our immune system
23:26 it increases oxygenated blood which
23:30 increases our alertness and our stamina
23:33 better circulation
23:35 proves and establishes neural pathways
23:38 and increases neuroplasticity it's
23:41 amazing that it creates neuro pathways
23:45 we can heal them and and create new ones
23:49 by singing it enhances learning and it
23:55 releases all of these neurotransmitters
23:57 that lift your mood
23:59 endorphins serotonin oxytocin and
24:02 dopamine all of them singing improves
24:05 our brain activity our memory our
24:07 well-being and our mood doctors now
24:10 recommend music therapy to help stroke
24:12 patients recover to help patients with
24:14 migraine headaches depression and
24:16 chronic pain and there's these theory or
24:18 therapies that I listed here that people
24:21 are using now doctors are suggesting and
24:23 finding good results with these
24:25 therapies so imagine how powerful it is
24:28 to sing the Word of God
24:29 singing scripture connects the front the
24:32 back and both sides of our brain they're
24:36 all communicating we're using all
24:39 aspects of our brain just like a helmet
24:45 protecting our minds from the fiery
24:47 darts of the enemy so any negativity
24:49 like fear pride comparison depression it
24:52 cannot interfere with those words that
24:55 you're singing just like Moses the
24:58 children of Israel Deborah David
25:00 Zephaniah and many more let's sing the
25:03 scriptures and experience remarkable
25:05 breakthroughs and blessings at the
25:08 bottom of page 4 I listed songs of
25:15 Scripture has a website so I have that
25:18 there you can listen to songs of
25:20 scripture on that website and read Wes's
25:23 blog some of what I've talked about
25:26 tonight is in this book singing the
25:31 scriptures by Julie Mayer she is in the
25:34 Healing Rooms in Santa Maria and I just
25:37 found this fascinating I encourage you
25:39 to get it she has testimonies in there
25:41 of people singing scriptures and the
25:43 remarkable breakthroughs that they
25:44 sieved and she also has a website with
25:51 videos for each of the chapters in the
25:52 book and she sings with you or gets you
25:54 encouraged to sing so I really recommend
25:56 those something else we use in the
25:58 healing rooms we have this in the
26:00 bookstore here is God's creative power
26:03 by Charles Capps
26:05 and this is just scriptures that you can
26:08 recite or sing all in one little book
26:12 healing scriptures and so with that
26:17 we're gonna have you sing
26:24 okay this is the interactive part so
26:31 this part where a lot of people think
26:34 say I can't do that you know I want to
26:38 do that you know so you're gonna sit
26:40 there like this but I want everybody to
26:45 stand up and I think you guys all have
26:50 this sheet that says a couple of
26:53 scriptures on it one of them that the
26:55 one of the top says he sent His Word and
26:59 healed them and rescued them from their
27:02 destruction you see that okay I'm gonna
27:08 do an exercise we're gonna sing this
27:13 together now we're just gonna sing one
27:16 note okay
27:17 just one no so so you know you don't
27:21 have to to be too creative we're gonna
27:25 sing he sent His Word and healed them
27:30 and rescued them from the destruction
27:33 okay sing with me he sent His Word and
27:37 healed them and rescued them from their
27:40 destruction one more time he sent his
27:44 word and he
27:45 them and rescued them from their
27:48 destruction when the more using that the
27:55 more you can get more creative with it
27:57 and and what happens what I have found
28:00 is that it's it starts to change
28:07 something in you you know for oh I give
28:11 you a little testimony well when I
28:13 recorded my my first CD I couldn't
28:17 listen to it because every time I
28:19 listened to it I just criticize myself
28:22 saying you know we should have done that
28:24 couldn't have done that why didn't we do
28:26 that you know and and I just couldn't
28:30 listen to it
28:31 and so I didn't for a couple of years
28:35 and then it was I recorded it in 2004
28:42 and then the second one I recorded in
28:45 2007 and I did the same thing I couldn't
28:47 listen to it I was just too critical you
28:50 know I was criticizing myself you know I
28:52 was cursing myself and then in 2010 our
29:00 daughter gets sick and I have to say
29:05 that that CD it was we were thankful for
29:09 it but we mostly didn't listen to it and
29:13 till our daughter became very ill and
29:16 she was in the hospital a lot and that
29:19 became our life source and all that we
29:21 could do was sing the scripture songs
29:24 and they sustained us and I thought how
29:28 gracious the Lord is that we have this
29:30 tool already done already recorded that
29:33 we could just put in the car and as
29:35 we're singing just or as we're driving
29:37 just sing these scriptures it was so
29:39 powerful it was ministering to us and so
29:43 in another time also my mother was in
29:48 the hospital she was in intensive care
29:50 and she was not responsive and the
29:53 doctor said she would not live through
29:55 evening she had chronic obstructive
30:01 pulmonary disease but now she had lung
30:03 or pneumonia in both lungs and so she
30:07 was not responsive and so I had my Bible
30:09 and I was reading the scriptures and
30:10 pretty soon my heart was heavy and I
30:14 just couldn't read anymore and I just
30:15 started singing the scriptures and it's
30:19 just all that I could do was to sing
30:21 them and the next morning a nurse came
30:25 in and she said Wow
30:27 her first response was the atmosphere
30:29 has changed in here oh hey I just I just
30:35 did what I that's just what my heart
30:37 could do and my mom lived my mom woke up
30:40 a couple of days later and you know the
30:44 doctors were amazed and I just give
30:46 glory to the Lord that that his
30:48 scripture is tangible that my mom woke
30:52 up in a whole different mental place and
30:56 her healing begin so I just encourage
31:00 yes so singing the scriptures has a
31:03 couple of real benefits to me it just
31:10 helps you to remember the promises you
31:13 know you know now now I have these these
31:18 these 30 promises in particular that
31:22 then I have edged in my heart and in my
31:25 brain you know like like they that wait
31:28 upon the Lord shall renew their strength
31:29 or you know that God is not given us a
31:34 spirit of fear but a power and love and
31:36 a sound mind you know and and those you
31:39 know some of those just started in the
31:40 shower you know I mean gut God has not
31:44 given us a spirit of fear that started
31:47 in the shower you know I just I don't
31:49 know it just just did and so so let's
31:53 try singing this again he sent His Word
31:57 he sent His Word and healed them and
32:00 rescued them from their destruction
32:03 he sent his word and healed them and
32:07 delivered them from the destruction so
32:10 now what I want you to do and you may
32:13 want to peel off and go to a different
32:15 part of the room so the no one else can
32:17 hear you but I want you to for the next
32:20 couple of minutes
32:21 take that one scripture and make your
32:25 own melody to just sing it sing it to
32:29 the Lord you see the reality is that God
32:32 wants a relationship with you and he
32:36 wants to hear your voice
32:39 he doesn't think you had a bad voice you
32:44 know he loves your voice and he wants to
32:47 hear it and I would add put your name in
32:50 there he sent His Word and healed me or
32:52 healed someone that you're praying for
32:54 he sent His Word and healed me and
32:57 rescued me from my destruction okay so
33:00 we're gonna take a couple of minutes
33:02 maybe two or three minutes and do this
33:06 so just you can stand right where you
33:09 are but I encourage you to go ahead and
33:12 and start singing this he sent his word
33:16 and he healed them and rescue them from
33:20 their destruction he sent his word and
33:24 he healed them rescue them from the
33:27 destruction he sent his word and he
33:31 healed them and rescue them from their
33:34 destruction he sent His Word and healed
33:38 me and rescued me from my destruction
33:42 he sent his word and He healed me and
33:47 rescued me from my destruction he sent
33:51 his word and He healed me and rescued me
33:55 from my district for me because I don't
33:58 feel like I have a trained voice and so
34:01 even in church I don't want to disturb
34:04 anybody so next week we're gonna talk
34:06 about corporate worship this week
34:08 practice singing out loud wherever you
34:11 are
34:11 and my what we're talking about next
34:15 week is this light that you carry keep
34:18 it burning by singing and then when we
34:21 get together at church on Sunday how
34:24 powerful it is when all those flames go
34:26 together what how powerful corporate
34:29 worship is because you continue to sing
34:32 the scriptures you don't know you know
34:38 what God will do with with his word
34:42 inside of you I didn't know what God was
34:45 gonna do with his word inside of me
34:47 in fact she kept giving me these songs
34:50 and they kept piling up in my guitar
34:53 keys you know and then one day I came
34:59 across that scripture says okay you know
35:05 he gave this guy five talents he gave
35:08 that guy two talents to give that guy
35:10 one talent and and then the Lord said
35:14 well what are you gonna do with the
35:15 talent I gave you you know what are you
35:18 gonna do with it well I had my guitar
35:20 case this is equal to burying it in the
35:22 ground right so I had you know I didn't
35:26 have a choice I I had to respond somehow
