(Expanded Lyrics Version)

Lift up your voice and shout for joy
The devil has been hurled down (Rev 12:10)
For Lucifer, the devil and Satan
With everlasting chains they have all been bound (Jude, Isa 28:22, Ps 107:10-12)
In gloomy dungeons these sinning angels (2Pe 2:4)
Have been sent to hell for Judgment Day (Jude, 2Pe 2:4)
When they will be slaughtered with a broom of destruction (Isa 14:1-23)
And thrown into the eternal Lake of Fire
Where they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever (Jude, Rev 21:8, Rev 20:9-10)

And this is what the Lord, who is the Spirit (2Co 3:17)
Says to the disobedient godless men
Whose condemnation was written about long ago (Jude)
Who rebel against the words of God
And despise the council of the Most High (Heb 3:7 to Heb 4:11, Ps 107:11)
By worshipping foreign gods and detestable idols
That they sacrifice to demons, which are not God (Dt 32:16-17, Dt 33:26-29, Isa 44:2)
And by making the Spirit who is the Lord jealous by what is no god
And angering the Spirit of the Lord (2Co 3:17, Isa 11)
With their worthless idols:

(Somewhere it is spoken in Dt 32:23-43 and the Gospel)
"I will heap calamities upon them and spend my arrows against them
I will send wasting famine against them, consuming pestilence and deadly plague
I will send against them the fangs of wild beasts, the venom of vipers that glide in the dust In the street the sword will make them childless; in their homes terror will reign
Young men and young women will perish, infant and gray-haired men
I said I would scatter them and blot out their memory from mankind
And although I dreaded the taunt of the enemy” I will not shrink back.

(Somewhere it is spoken in Hebrews 10:37-38, Jude, Isa 14:21-23, 2Co 3:17, Isa 11)
“Jesus who is both Lord and Christ will come and will not delay
For the Spirit of the Lord’s righteous one will live by faith
And Jesus will not shrink back
Therefore, the Spirit of the Lord, his King, will be pleased with Jesus
For the Lord Almighty, who is the Spirit, will fight with Jesus (Isa 14:21-23)
And be against Lucifer’s sons, devils, devil angels, and Satan

For Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied (Jude)
About these men whose condemnation was written about long ago
Who lie to the Holy Spirit with their heart filled with Satan (Acts 5:3)
"See, the Lord Jesus Christ is coming with thousands upon thousands (Jude)
Of his holy ones from the order of Melchizedek
To judge everyone, and to convict all the ungodly
Of all the ungodly acts they have done in the ungodly way
And of all the harsh words ungodly sinners have spoken against him"

And the archangel Michael (Jude)
When he is disputing with devils and demons about the body of Moses
Saying "The Lord rebuke you!"
Does not need to bring slanderous accusations against them
He will simply read scripture to devils, demons, Lucifer and Satan
And there will be a war in heaven (Rev 12:7-10)
Michael and his angels from the Order of Melchizedek, will fight against the dragon
And if the dragon and his angels fight back, they will not be strong enough
To fight against both the Holy Spirit they lied with their hearts filled with Satan (Acts 5:3)
And the thousands upon thousands of Holy Ones from the armies of Heaven Above
From the order of Melchizedek
(Jude, Rev 19:11-21)
And they will lose their place in heaven (Rev 12:7-10)
And the great dragon will be hurled down-
That ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray
He will be hurled to the earth, and his angels with him
Then a loud voice in heaven will say:
"Now have come the salvation and the power, and the kingdom of our God
And the authority of his Christ
For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night
Has been hurled down
And they will be slaughtered and swept away by a broom of destruction (Isa 14:21-23)
Then fire will come from heaven and devour them (Rev 20:9-10)
And the devil, who deceived them, will be thrown into the lake of burning sulfur
Where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown
And they will be tormented day and night, for ever and ever

(Dt 32:23-43 continued)
“Therefore, do not be adversaries of the Lord, who is the Spirit
And misunderstand and say 'Our hand has triumphed
The Lord has not done all this.'"
For you are a nation without sense, there is no discernment in you
If only you were wise and would understand this and discern what your end will be!”

“The cowardly
The unbelieving
The vile
The murderers
The sexually immoral
Those who practice magic arts
The idolaters
And all liars-
Their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur
This is the second death” (Rev 21:8)

The cowardly make lies their refuge
And falsehood their hiding place (Isa 28:9-22, Rev 21:8)
“So woe to those who go to great depths
To hide their plans from the Lord
Who do their work in darkness and think
"Who sees us? Who will know?" (Isa 29: 15)
For the cowardly love and practice falsehood (Rev 22:15)
With their false humility, idol notions and the worship of devil angels (Col 2:18)
And they are wicked men that suppress the truth by their wickedness (Ro 1:18-25)
And spread error concerning our Lord, who is the Spirit
(2Co 3:17, Ps 136:2-3, Rev 19:11-21, Isa 11, Isa 32:1-8, Isa 29:13-21, 2Pt:1-4, Isa 44)
By creating pretend gods with made up stories (2Pt 1-4)
And lying to the Holy Spirit with their hearts filled with Satan (Acts 5:3)
Who exchange the truth of God for a lie
And worship and serve created things
Rather than the Creator-who is forever praised, Amen (Ro 1:18-25)
Who are the false prophets and false teachers among the people (2Pt:1-4)
Ruining whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach
And that for the sake of dishonest gain (Titus 1:10-16)

(Isa 28:9-13)
“And who are they trying to teach?
And to whom are they explaining their message?
To children just weaned from the milk?
To those just taken from the breast?
For it is, do and do, do and do, rule on rule, rule on rule, a little here, a little there
Very well then, with foreign lips and strange tongues
The Sovereign Lord, (Who is the Spirit 2Co 3:17), will speak to this people
To whom he said:
“This is the resting place, let the weary rest”
And “This is the place of peace”
But they would not listen
So then, the word of the Sovereign Lord to them will become
Do and do, do and do, rule on rule, rule on rule, a little here, a little there
So that they will go and fall backward, and are injured, snared and captured”

(Isa 28:14-22)
“Therefore, hear the word of the Lord you scoffers
Who rule this people in Jerusalem
You boast, ‘We have entered into a covenant with death
With the grave we have made an agreement
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by us, it cannot touch us
For we have made a lie our refuge, and falsehood our hiding place’

So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone
A precious cornerstone for a sure foundation
The one who trusts will never be dismayed
I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plumb line
Hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie
And water will overflow your hiding place
Your covenant will death will be annulled
And your agreement with the grave will not stand
When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it
As often as it comes it will carry you away
Morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through

The understanding of this message will bring sheer terror
The bed is too short for you to stretch out on
The blanket too narrow to wrap around you
The Lord will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim
He will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon
To do his work, his strange work
And perform his task, his alien task
Now stop your mocking, or your chains will become heavier
The Lord, the Lord Almighty, has told me
Of the destruction decreed against the whole land”

And these cowardly men are also the unbelieving men
Who are the sinning angels who do not believe
The Lord Jesus delivers his people out of Egypt (Jude)
Who despise the council of the Most High
And rebel against the words of God (Ps 107:11)

(Heb 3:16-19)
"Today, if you hear his voice
Do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion"
Who were they who heard and rebelled?
Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt?
And with whom was he angry for forty years?
Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the desert?
And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest
If not to those who disobeyed?
So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief”

(Somewhere it is spoken in Heb 4:1-11)
For somewhere it is spoken about the seventh day in these words:
“And on the seventh day God rested from all his work”
Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands
Let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it
For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did
But the message they heard was of no value to them
Because those who heard did not combine it with faith
It still remains that some will enter rest
And those who formerly had the gospel preached to them did not go in
Because of their disobedience
Therefore God again set a certain day, calling it Today
When a long time later he spoke through David, as was said before
“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts”
Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest
So that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience

(Jude 1:4-6)
For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago
Have secretly slipped in among you
They are godless men, who change the grace of our God
Into a license for immorality
And deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord
Though you already know all this
I want to remind you that the Lord delivered his people out of Egypt
But later destroyed those who did not believe
And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority
But abandoned their own home
These he has kept in darkness
Bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day

And these cowardly, unbelieving men are also the vile men
Who accuse, mock and slander our brothers and sisters
Before our God day and night (Jude, Rev 12:10, Rev 21:8, Isa 28:22, 1Ti 1:8-11)
With their fake morals, ceremonial washings and external regulations (Heb 9:10)
Who are slave son Ishmaelites born from the flesh in the ordinary way
(Gal 4:21-31, Ge 21:9-10)
Who attempt to persecute the free Son born from Jerusalem Above (Gal 4:21-31)
And who will never share in the inheritance with the free woman’s son
(Gal 4:21-31, Ge 21:9-10)
And they are the Levites who go far away from the Sovereign Lord
And wander after their idols of jealousy by making laws we cannot live by
And statures that are not good (Eze 44:10, Eze 8:3-5, Eze 20:25 )
Who bow down at incense altars with their detestable offerings
That they sacrifice to their idols of Canaan (Ps 106:37-39)

(Jude 1:10-13)
For these vile men speak abusively against whatever they do not understand
And what things they do understand by instinct, like unreasoning animals
These are the very things that destroy them
Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain
They have rushed for profit into Balaam's error
They have been destroyed in Korah's rebellion
These men are blemishes at your love feasts
Eating with you without the slightest qualm
Shepherds who feed only themselves
They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind
Autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted-twice dead
They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame
Wandering stars
For whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever

(2Pe 2:12-19)
And these vile men blaspheme in matters they do not understand
And they are like brute beasts, and creatures of instinct
Born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish
For they will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done
Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight
They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you
With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning,
They seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed-
And they are an accursed brood!
They have left the straight way
And wandered off to follow the way of Balaam son of Beor
Who loved the wages of wickedness
But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey-
A beast without speech-who spoke with a man's voice
And restrained the prophet's madness
These men are springs without water and mists driven by a storm
And the blackest darkness is reserved for them
For they mouth empty, boastful words
And, by appealing to the lustful desires of sinful human nature
They entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error
They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity-
For a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him

(2Ti 3:1-9)
And these vile men are the people who are the lovers of themselves
The lovers of money, who are boastful, proud, abusive, and disobedient to their parents
The ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the slanderous
Those without self-control, who accuse and mock celestial beings
The brutal men who are not lovers of the good, but treacherous, rash, and conceited
The lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
Having a form of godliness but denying its power
And we will have nothing to do with them
For they are the kind who worm their way into homes
And gain control over weak-willed women
Who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires
Always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth
Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses
So also these men oppose the truth--men of depraved minds
Who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected
But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men
Their folly will be clear to everyone, they are merely demons

And these cowardly, unbelieving, vile men, are also the men who are murderers
For the devil was a murderer from the beginning
Not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him
When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies
And there are those who claim to be Abraham’s children
Who belong to their father that is the devil (Lk 10:18, Rev 17:8-11, Jn 8:31-58)
Who are whitewashed walls that strike down Paul
And violate the law to make him their devil Saul (Acts 23:1-3)
The observers of the law who don’t follow it at all (Acts 22:12, Ro 2:13)
By slaying James, beheading John, seizing Peter (Acts 12:1-3, Mt 14:1-12, Mk 6:14-29)
Binding Simeon, and deceiving Benjamin (Ge 42:24, Ge 44:2)
So they can stone and murder the Lambs of Stephen, Stephanie, Philip and Phillis
(Acts 23:1-3, Acts 8:1, Rev 21:8, 1Ti 1:8-11)

(Ro 13:9-10)
The commandments, "Do not commit adultery," "Do not murder"
"Do not steal," "Do not covet"
And whatever other commandment there may be
Are summed up in this one rule: "Love your neighbor as yourself"
Love does no harm to its neighbor
Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law

(1Ti 1:8-11)
“We know that the law is good if one uses it properly
We also know that law is made not for the righteous
But for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful
The unholy and irreligious
For those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers
For adulterers and perverts
For slave traders and liars and perjurers-
And for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine
That conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God
Which he entrusted to me”

And these cowardly, unbelieving, vile men who are murderers
Are also the sexually immoral men
For they are sexually immoral men degrading their bodies with one another
By exchanging the glory of the immortal God for images of the beast
That they falsely call Christ (Ro 1:18-25, Jude, Rev 21:8, Rev 13:11-18)
When it is Jesus who is the Christ
And it is Jesus who is the Lord (1Jn 2:18-27, Ro 10:1-13, 1Co 8:4-6)
And it is God over all who is forever praised (Ro 1:18-25, footnote Ro 9:5)

And they are the sexually immoral men who commit adultery
With God’s bride New Jerusalem (2Pt 1:13-14)
By breeding men in the image of men
And putting aliens and strangers
At the gates of Stephen, Stephanie, Philip and Phillis (Ro 1:18-32, Heb 11:13-16, Ge 5:3)
For Herodias is our Brother Philip’s wife (Mt 14:4-5, Jude, Rev 21:8, Ro 1:18-25,
1Ti 1: 8-11, Ge 5:3)

(2Pe 2:14)
“With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning
They seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed-
An accursed brood!”

(Ro 1:24-32)
“Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts
To sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another
They exchanged the truth of God for a lie
And worshiped and served created things
Rather than the Creator-who is forever praised, Amen

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts
Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones
In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women
And were inflamed with lust for one another
Men committed indecent acts with other men
And received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion

Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile
To retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind
To do what ought not to be done
They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity
They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice
They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful
They invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents
They are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless
Although they know God's righteous decree
That those who do such things deserve death
They not only continue to do these very things
But also approve of those who practice them”

In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns
Gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion
They serve as an example of those who suffer
The punishment of eternal fire (Jude 1:7)

(Isa 1:10-17)
“Therefore hear the word of the Spirit of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom
Listen to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah!
"The multitude of your sacrifices--what are they to me?" says the Lord
"I have more than enough of burnt offerings
Of rams and the fat of fattened animals
I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats
When you come to appear before me
Who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts?
Stop bringing meaningless offerings!
Your incense is detestable to me
New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations—
I cannot bear your evil assemblies
Your New Moon festivals and your appointed feasts my soul hates
They have become a burden to me, I am weary of bearing them
When you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide my eyes from you
Even if you offer many prayers, I will not listen
Your hands are full of blood, wash and make yourselves clean
Take your evil deeds out of my sight!
Stop doing wrong, learn to do right!
Seek justice, encourage the oppressed
Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow”

And these cowardly, unbelieving, vile men
Who are murderers and sexually immoral
Are also idolaters and liars who practice magic arts (Rev 21:8, Rev 22:15)
For they are slave traders, perjurers and liars to the Holy Ghost
With their hearts filled with Satan (Acts 5:1-11, 1Ti 1:8-11, Rev 21:8)
Who lie not only to men, but to God Almighty
By despising the council of the Most High
And rebelling against the Words of God (Heb 3 & 4, Ps 107:10-12)
Who practice magic arts to demon possess souls in the name of Beelzebub
By cursing the temple of God through lies, falsehoods and extortion
So they can worm their way into homes
And gain control over weak-willed women
Who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires
To gain the will of God in the name of their Canaan jealous image idol
So they can pour contempt on Nobles, to make them wander in a trackless waste
(Ps 107:40)

And they are idolaters worshipping 8th day Sabbath devil Lords
That will go to their destruction in the book of Revelation (Rev 17:8-11, Rev 21:8)
Who are false apostles and deceitful workmen
Masquerading as apostles of Christ
Masquerading as angels of light
And masquerading as servants of righteousness (2Co 11:13-15)
With their false humility, idol notions and their worship of devil angels (Col 2:18)
Who are the wicked men that suppress the truth by their wickedness (Ro 1:18-25)
And spread error concerning our Lord, who is the Spirit
(2Co 3:17, Ps 136:2-3, Rev 19:11-21, Isa 11, Isa 32:1-8, Isa 29:13-21, 2Pt:1-4, Isa 44)
By creating pretend gods with made up stories (2Pt 1-4)
Those men whose condemnation was written about long ago (Jude)
Who follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons
And teachings that come through hypocritical liars
Whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron (1Ti 4:1-7)
Especially those of the circumcision group
Who are mere talkers and deceivers
Ruining whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach
And that for dishonest gain
Who secretly introduce destructive heresies
Even denying the Sovereign Lord who bought them—
Bringing swift destruction upon themselves
And their condemnation has long been hanging over them
And their destruction has not been sleeping
Therefore we will pay no attention to their Jewish myths
Or to the commands of those who reject the truth
For both their minds and consciences are corrupted
And they are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good

And God did not spare angels when they sinned
But sent them to hell
Putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment (2Pt 2:4)
Therefore, liars to the Holy Spirit with their hearts filled with Satan (Acts 5:1-11)
Who have not only lied to men but to God Almighty
Who are cowardly, unbelieving, vile men and murderers
(Isa 28:9-22, Rev 21:8, Isa 29:13-21, Rev 22:15, Jude, Acts 5:1-11, 2Pt 2:1-19,
Heb 3:16-19, Heb 4:1-11, 1Ti 1:8-11 )
Who are sexually immoral, idolaters and liars, who practice magic arts
(Ro 1:18-25, Isa 44, Jude, Acts 5:1-11, 2Pt 2:12-19, Rev 21:8, Rev 22:15)
Who are deceitful workman that love and practice falsehood
(Isa 28:9-22, 2Co 11:13-15, Isa 28:9-22, Isa 29:13-21, Rev 22:15)
Whose shameful ways bring the way of truth into disrepute
(2Pt 2:1-4, 2Pt 2:12-19, Jude, Ro 1:18-25, Isa 28:9-22, Isa 29:13-21, Isa 32:1-8)
Who are whitewashed tombs which look beautiful on the outside
But on the inside are filled with dead men bones and everything unclean
Who on the outside appear to people as righteous
But on the inside are full of hypocrisy and wickedness (Mt 23:27-28)
Who are impure and worship images of the beast (Rev 13:1-18, Rev 21:8, Rev 21:27,
Rev 22:14-15)
Who masquerade as apostles of Christ (2Co 11-15)
Whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life (Rev 13:8, Rev 21:27)
Who are Lucifer’s sons, devils, devil angels, and Satan
Will be slaughtered and swept away by a broom of destruction
When the Lord Almighty, who is the Spirit, is against them (Isa 14:22-23, 2Co 3:17, Isa 11)
The very Holy Spirit all these devils lied to with their hearts filled with Satan (Acts 5:1-11)
And they will be kept in darkness and bound in everlasting chains (Jude)
Until they are thrown into the fiery lake of burning sulfur
Where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown
When fire comes down from Heaven above and devours them
And they will be tormented day and night
For ever and ever (Rev 20:9-10, 2Pt 2:4)

(Dt 32:23-43 continued)
“How could one man chase a thousand, or two put ten thousand to flight
Unless their Rock had sold them, unless the Lord had given them up?
For their rock is not like our Rock, as even our enemies concede
Their vine comes from the vine of Sodom
And from the fields of Gomorrah
Their grapes are filled with poison, and their clusters with bitterness
Their wine is the venom of serpents, the deadly poison of cobras

"Have I not kept this in reserve and sealed it in my vaults?
It is mine to avenge; I will repay
In due time their foot will slip
Their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them"

“The Lord will judge his people and have compassion on his servants
When he sees their strength is gone and no one is left, slave or free
He will say: "Now where are their gods, the rock they took refuge in
The gods who ate the fat of their sacrifices
And drank the wine of their drink offerings?
Let them rise up to help you! Let them give you shelter!”

"See now that I myself am He! There is no god besides me
I put to death and I bring to life, I have wounded and I will heal
And no one can deliver out of my hand
I lift my hand to heaven and declare: As surely as I live forever
When I sharpen my flashing sword and my hand grasps it in judgment
I will take vengeance on my adversaries and repay those who hate me
I will make my arrows drunk with blood, while my sword devours flesh:
The blood of the slain and the captives, the heads of the enemy leaders"

“Rejoice, O nations, with his people
For he will avenge the blood of his servants
He will take vengeance on his enemies
And make atonement for his land and people”

For the Holy One of Israel is not the son of man Lord of the Sabbath idol image 8th king
(2Co 3:17, Isa 11, Isa 44, Rev 16:5, Rev 17:-8-11, 2Th 2:4, Ex 6:2-4, Rev 20:9-10, Rev 21:22-26, 2Co 11:13-15, Rev 13:11-18, Rev 16:13-14, Rev 17:14, Rev 19:11-21, Rev 21:22-26, Gal 4:21-31, Ge 21:9-10, Mt 12:1-32, Mk 2:23-27, Lk 6:1-11)
And that eighth king devil Canaan Lord gog frog will return to the seven kings
When he goes to his destruction in the book of Revelation (Rev 17:8-11)
For in Ezekiel chapter 44 verse two the Sovereign Lord says the gate is to remain shut
Upon this jealous idol image of the beast in the House of Israel
(Eze 44:2, Eze 8:3-5, Eze 20:25, 2Th 2:4, Rev 17:8-11, Rev 13:11-18, Ex 6:2-4, 2Co 11:13-15)
It must not be opened; and no one may enter through it
It is to remain shut because that accusing Ishmaelite slave son of Hagar El-Shaddai
Who is the eighth king devil Lord son of man gog frog of Israel has entered through it
Who mocks, slanders, accuses and persecutes the free Son of God (Gal 4:21-31)
That idol of jealousy in the entrance north of the gate of the altar
Who makes statutes that are not good
And laws we cannot live by (Eze 8:3-5, Eze 20:25, Eze 44:2)

(Eze 44:2-3, Eze 44:10, Eze 44:12-13)
For the Sovereign Lord says:
“This gate is to remain shut, it must not be opened
No one may enter through it
It is to remain shut because the Lord, the God of Israel
Has entered through it
The prince himself (“You who are and who were, the Holy One” of Israel Rev 16:5)
Is the only one who may sit inside the gateway
To eat in the presence of the Lord (Who is the Spirit 2Co 3:17)
He is to enter by way of the portico of the gateway and go out the same way."
“The Levites who went far away from me when Israel went astray (Eze 44:10)
And who wandered from me after their idols
Must bear the consequences of their sin”
“They have served idols and made the house of Israel fall into sin (Eze 44:12-13)
Therefore I have sworn with uplifted hand
That they must bear the consequences of their sin
Declares the Sovereign Lord
They are not to come near to serve me as priests
Or come near any of my holy things, or my most holy offerings
They must bear the shame of their detestable practices”

(Somewhere it is spoken in Hebrews 4:1-11)
For somewhere it is spoken about the seventh day in these words:
“And on the seventh day God rested from all his work”
Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands
Let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it
For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did
But the message they heard was of no value to them
Because those who heard did not combine it with faith
It still remains that some will enter rest
And those who formerly had the gospel preached to them did not go in
Because of their disobedience
Therefore God again set a certain day, calling it Today
When a long time later he spoke through David, as was said before
“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts”
Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest
So that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience

(Somewhere it is spoken in Colossians 2:8-23)
Therefore, see to it that no one takes you captive
Through hollow and deceptive philosophy
Which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world (Col 2:8-23)
Rather than on Jesus is both Lord and Christ (Ro 10:6-9, 1 Jn 2:22)
For God is the head of Christ and Jesus is the Christ
(1Jn 2:22, Ro 10: 6-9, 1Co 3:21-22, 1Co 10:1-5, 1Co 11:1, Ps 18:31-32)
And all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form
Therefore, do not let anyone who delights in false humility
And the worship of devil angels, disqualify you for the prize
With their do and do, do and do, rule on rule, rule on rule
Their little here, a little there (Isa 28:10, Col 2:8-2))
When they are spreading error concerning our Lord, who is the Spirit
(2Co 3:17, Ps 136:2-3, Rev 19:11-21, Isa 11, Isa 32:1-8, Isa 29:13-21, 2Pt:1-4, Isa 44)
By creating pretend gods with made up stories (2Pt 1-4)
That secretly introduce destructive heresies
Even denying the Sovereign Lord who bought them—
Bringing swift destruction upon themselves
And they are lying to the Holy Spirit with their hearts filled with Satan (Acts 5:3)
By exchanging the truth of God for a lie
To worship and serve created things
Rather than the Creator-who is forever praised, Amen (Ro 1:18-25)
Who are the false prophets and false teachers among the people (2Pt 2:1-4)
Grumblers, fault finders and scoffers, who divide our people and do not have the Spirit (Jude)
Who accuse our brothers and sisters before our God day and night (Rev 12:10)
With their fake morals, ceremonial washings and external regulations (Heb 9:10)
And Isaiah was right when he prophesied about these hypocrites (Mk 7:6-8)
As it is written:
"'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me
They worship me in vain; and their teachings are but rules taught by men'
They have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men"
For such a person goes into great detail about what he has seen (Col 2:8-23)
And his unspiritual mind puffs him up with idle notions
Therefore, why should you submit to teachings that are merely rules taught by men
(Mk 7:6-8)
That are Jewish myths, old wives tales and the commands of those who reject the truth
(Titus 1:10-16)
With their do and do, do and do, rule on rule, rule on rule
Their little here, a little there (Isa 28:10))
That say: Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch! (Col 2:8-23)
Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom
With their self-imposed worship, their false humility
And their harsh treatment of the body
But they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence

(1Ti 4:1-7)
“The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith
And follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons
Such teachings come through hypocritical liars
Whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron
They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods
Which God created to be received with thanksgiving
By those who believe and who know the truth
For everything God created is good
And nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving
Because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer

If you point these things out to the brothers (and the sisters)
You will be a good minister of Jesus is the Lord and Christ
Brought up in the truths of the faith
And of the good teaching that you have followed
Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales
Rather, train yourself to be godly” (For God is with us” Isa 8:10, Mt 1:23)

(Ro 14:1-4)
“Accept him whose faith is weak
Without passing judgment on disputable matters
One man's faith allows him to eat everything
(Except eating the Lamb Christ as a detestable idol muffin that is sacrificed to demons
Which are not God, Dt 32:15-17)
But another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables
The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not
And the man who does not eat everything must not condemn the man who does
For God has accepted him
Who are you to judge someone else's servant?
To his own master he stands or falls
And he will stand, for Jesus who is both Lord and Christ
Is able to make him stand”

(Titus 1:10-16)
“For there are many rebellious people, mere talkers and deceivers
Especially those of the circumcision group
They must be silenced, because they are ruining whole households
By teaching things they ought not to teach-and that for the sake of dishonest gain
It was one of themselves, one of their own prophets, who said
"Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, and lazy gluttons"
This testimony is true
Therefore, rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith
And will pay no attention to Jewish myths
Or to the commands of those who reject the truth
For to the pure, all things are pure
But to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure
In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted
They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him
They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good”

Therefore, whitewashed walls don’t strike down Paul
To make him your devil Saul, for you violate the law (Acts 23:1-3)
And you observers of the law don’t follow it at all (Acts 22:12, Ro 2:13)
When you slay James, behead John, seize Peter (Acts 12:1-3, Mt 14:1-12, Mk 6:14-29)
Bind Simeon, and deceive Benjamin (Ge 42:24, Ge 44:2)
For you do not worship the Sons of God but the sons of a manna
External regulations taught by men and various ceremonial washings
(Mk 7, Isa 29:13, Heb 9:10)
And you let go of the commands of God
To follow the traditions of an idol temple gog frog (2Th 2:4)
And worship images of the beast and not God Almighty’s Word
Therefore, I am here to remind you
Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites (Mk 7:6-8)
As it is written:
"'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me
They worship me in vain; and their teachings are but rules taught by men'
They have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men"
For Jesus is the Lord and Jesus is the Christ, and the Spirit is the Lord
(2Co 3:17, Isa 11, (Lk 9:18-20, Mt 16:13-16, Mk 8:27-29, 1Jn 2:22, Ro 10: 6-9, 1Co 3:21-22)
And where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom (2 Co 3:17)
And the entire law is summed up in a single command (Gal 5:14)
“Love your neighbor as yourself”
Yet these men whose condemnation was written about long ago (Jude)
Are grumblers, fault finders and scoffers, who divide our people and do not have the Spirit
Who accuse our brothers and sisters before our God day and night (Rev 12:10)
Who are false prophets and false teachers among the people (2Pt 2:1-4)
And they will secretly introduce destructive heresies
Even denying the Sovereign Lord who bought them—
Bringing swift destruction upon themselves
And many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute
For in their greed these teachers will exploit God’s people, with stories they have made up
And their condemnation has long been hanging over them
And their destruction has not been sleeping
For God Almighty will not spare angels when they sin
But send them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons, to be held for judgment
Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings
And although these sinning angels know they should not bring slanderous accusations
Against celestial beings in the presence of the Lord (2Pt 2:10, Jude)
Who is the Spirit, (2Co 3:17)
And although these sinning angels are fully aware (Ro 1:32)
That God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death
They not only continue to so these very things, but also approve of those who practice them
Showing contempt for the riches of God Almighty’s kindness (Ro 2:4-8)
Tolerance and patience
Not realizing that God’s kindness leads them toward repentance
But because of their stubbornness and their unrepentant heart
They are storing up wrath against themselves for the day of God’s wrath
When God Almighty’s righteous judgments are revealed
For God "will give to each person according to what he has done"
To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality
He will give eternal life
But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil
There will be wrath and anger
And the false prophets and false teachers among the people (2Pt 2:12-19)
Those men whose condemnation was written about long ago (Jude)
Lie to the Holy Spirit with their hearts filled with Satan (Acts 5:3)
And blaspheme in matters they do not understand (2Pt 2:12-19)
And they are like brute beasts, and creatures of instinct
Born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish
For they will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done
Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight
They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you
With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning,
They seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed-
And they are an accursed brood!
They have left the straight way
And wandered off to follow the way of Balaam son of Beor
Who loved the wages of wickedness
But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey-
A beast without speech-who spoke with a man's voice
And restrained the prophet's madness
These men are springs without water and mists driven by a storm
And the blackest darkness is reserved for them
For they mouth empty, boastful words
And, by appealing to the lustful desires of sinful human nature
They entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error
They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity-
For a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him

(Ezekiel Chapter 34)
“This is what the Sovereign Lord says:
Woe to the shepherds of Israel who only take care of themselves!
Should not shepherds take care of the flock?
You eat the curds, clothe yourselves with the wool and slaughter the choice animals
But you do not take care of the flock
You have not strengthened the weak or healed the sick or bound up the injured
You have not brought back the strays or searched for the lost
You have ruled them harshly and brutally
So they were scattered because there was no shepherd
And when they were scattered they became food for all the wild animals
My sheep wandered over all the mountains and on every high hill
They were scattered over the whole earth, and no one searched or looked for them

"'Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord:
As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord
Because my flock lacks a shepherd and so has been plundered
And has become food for all the wild animals
And because my shepherds did not search for my flock
But cared for themselves rather than for my flock
Therefore, O shepherds, hear the word of the Lord:
This is what the Sovereign Lord says:
I am against the shepherds and will hold them accountable for my flock
I will remove them from tending the flock
So that the shepherds can no longer feed themselves
I will rescue my flock from their mouths, and it will no longer be food for them

"'For this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
I myself will search for my sheep and look after them
As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them
So will I look after my sheep
I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered
On a day of clouds and darkness
I will bring them out from the nations and gather them from the countries
And I will bring them into their own land
I will pasture them on the mountains of Israel
In the ravines and in all the settlements in the land
I will tend them in a good pasture
And the mountain heights of Israel will be their grazing land
There they will lie down in good grazing land
And there they will feed in a rich pasture on the mountains of Israel
I myself will tend my sheep and have them lie down, declares the Sovereign Lord
I will search for the lost and bring back the strays
I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak
But the sleek and the strong I will destroy
I will shepherd the flock with justice

"'As for you, my flock, this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
I will judge between one sheep and another, and between rams and goats
Is it not enough for you to feed on the good pasture?
Must you also trample the rest of your pasture with your feet?
Is it not enough for you to drink clear water?
Must you also muddy the rest with your feet?
Must my flock feed on what you have trampled
And drink what you have muddied with your feet?

"'Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says to them:
See, I myself will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep
Because you shove with flank and shoulder
Butting all the weak sheep with your horns until you have driven them away
I will save my flock, and they will no longer be plundered
I will judge between one sheep and another
I will place over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he will tend them
He will tend them and be their shepherd
I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David will be prince among them
I the Lord have spoken

"'I will make a covenant of peace with them and rid the land of wild beasts
So that they may live in the desert and sleep in the forests in safety
I will bless them and the places surrounding my hill
I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing
The trees of the field will yield their fruit and the ground will yield its crops
The people will be secure in their land
They will know that I am the Lord, when I break the bars of their yoke
And rescue them from the hands of those who enslaved them
They will no longer be plundered by the nations, nor will wild animals devour them
They will live in safety, and no one will make them afraid
I will provide for them a land renowned for its crops
And they will no longer be victims of famine in the land or bear the scorn of the nations Then they will know that I, the Lord their God, am with them
And that they, the house of Israel, are my people, declares the Sovereign Lord
You my sheep, the sheep of my pasture, are people
And I am your God, declares the Sovereign Lord'

(Isa 11:1-9)
“A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse
From his roots a Branch will bear fruit
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding
The Spirit of counsel and of power
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord—
And he will delight in the fear of the Lord
He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes
Or decide by what he hears with his ears
But with righteousness he will judge the needy
With justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth
He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth
With the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked
Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist”

“The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat
The calf and the lion and the yearling together
And a little child will lead them
The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together
And the lion will eat straw like the ox
The infant will play near the hole of the cobra
And the young child put his hand into the viper's nest
They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain
For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea”

(Lk 4:14-21)
“Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit
And news about him spread through the whole countryside
He taught in their synagogues, and everyone praised him

He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up
And on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom
And he stood up to read
The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him
Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me
Because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
And recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed
To proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."

Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down
The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him
And he began by saying to them
"Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing."

“Here I am it is written about me in the scroll
I have come to do your will O God” (Heb 10:7)
To proclaim the New Order and the New Covenant (Heb 8: 7-13, Jer 31:31-34)
To unseal the scroll in the book of Revelation (Rev 5:1-5)
To measure the temple of God and the altar
And to count the worshipers there (Rev 11:1, Eze 40:3-4)
Until there is a Victory of the Word of God who is the Lamb and White Horse
(Rev 17:14, Rev 15: 7, Rev 19:11-21)
A New Heaven, New Earth, and New Jerusalem (Rev Chapters 21 and 22, 2Pe 3:13)
And a change of the priesthood, from the order of Aaron
To the order of Melchizedek (Hebrews Chapter 7)

I am a New Order, New Age and New Covenant Gospel Rock and Roller preaching the Gospel to the world in the tradition of Dylan and Springsteen. My songs metaphorically interpret the Bible and book of Revelation, helping to shine a light upon Bob Dylan’s lyrical clues. I serve the Spirit of the Lord, and dedicate my eternal Star to serving my King the Holy Spirit of Truth (Isaiah chapter 11 and 2 Corinthians 3:17) and proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, the day of God’s Salvation and the New Covenant (Luke 4:18-19, Isaiah chapter 61, 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 8:7-13) by measuring the temple, unsealing the scroll in the book of Revelation and preaching the true metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel to the world inspired by Mt 13:35 and Ps 78:2 that states “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world."

Gospel references for these songs and spoken words are the same as my recent song and spoken word posts:
(Please note that a Jew and Israelite in a metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel is not a person of Jewish heritage, it is a metaphor for a part of all of us that is a Jew within and another part of us that is a Gentile within -see Romans 2:28-29- and how these two parts become one in Ephesians 2:14-22, Ezekiel 37:15-17 and Romans 3:27-31, also how there are those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars- see Revelations 3:9)
