Clues for Our Final Single of 2014
Fri., Dec. 26. 2014 1:27pm EST
Christmas may be over, but this year won't be complete until we release two more songs. Look for that new single to appear in our online store later this weekend. That'll give us 53 songs in 2014, just over one per week. Here are your clues:
The man's son was in critical condition, foaming at the mouth, gnashing his teeth, throwing himself to the ground, and forcing others to run for cover. Modern-day skeptics might think it was a matter of mental health, but his father knew he wasn't crazy; it was demon possession. Although the evil spirit had robbed his son of speech, the man wouldn't keep quiet about it, and he begged Jesus for help. For the breathless conclusion to our story, listen to the song and check out Mark 9:14-29, Matthew 17:14-21, and Luke 9:37-45.
God is referred to as the "God of Peace" five times in the New Testament, but that doesn't mean He'll take it easy on the devil. Romans 16:20 says He'll soon take the devil and crush him under your feet. In one sense, He's already gone and done that through Christ's crucifixion and resurrection, although we still await the final fulfillment as described in the book of Revelation. Until then, the world will often lionize those who do evil, but God is not mocked. Nevertheless, He knows there's a limit to our ability to resist temptation, and He won't let Satan take us beyond that. So trust in the Lord and don't just go to Him as a last resort.
These two new studio recordings should be available by Sunday night. Once the new single is released, we'll announce it on our website, on Facebook, and on Twitter.
