Clues for Our First Single of 2015: Due This Wkd
Thu., Jan. 8. 2015 11:26am EST
If we told you the title of our next single, it would give too much away. But we're planning to release it by the end of this weekend. Here are clues to the two songs:
In Deuteronomy 18:15, Moses said, "The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him." But in verse 34:10 it says, "Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses," even though Joshua had become Israel's next leader, and he and Caleb were the sole survivors of the Exodus among the adult Israelites. If not him, then who? Only time would tell. The Jews were still looking 1400 years later and asked John the Baptist if he was "the Prophet." He said no (John 1:21). But don't cry; the Prophet finally came. In Acts 3:21-23, Peter affirms that Jesus was that Prophet, and He would exceed the wildest dreams of those who received Him.
When an angry mob stoned Stephen to death as the first Christian martyr, they laid their coats down at the feet of a young man named Saul, who welcomed them with open arms. After the crowd went their separate ways, Saul began a major persecution of Christians. He wanted them rounded up and punished, dead or alive … only the young Pharisee wouldn't be feeling that way for too long. Later, in a radical departure, he became the Apostle Paul and preached Jesus faithfully for the rest of his life. In this song, Paul looks back on Stephen's stoning with different eyes, after the fall of the scales that had blinded him.
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.
