Notes based on VITAL HEALTH, PART 1 – OUR BODIES MATTER

Pastor Anthony gives us a spiritual, physical, and mental check up. We cannot compartmentalize our mind, body, and soul because they all bleed into one another and infect each other. Don’t forget our bodies matter, which is why GOD made Adam out of matter.

lyrics

Compartmentalized plates don’t touch one another
Must remain in order and be organized together
We live our lives this way it’s our emotional soulful side
This is my spiritual side this is my physical side
Separate the sacred from the secular things
We live our lives as a quasi Christian cult – of all things
Gnosticism existed yet it still seems to exist today
Every physical thing is evil in each and every way
Asceticism comes from this like a spare ritual
Everything spiritual is good and everything good is spiritual
If it’s evil and sinful I will over indulge in everything I do
Flesh is flesh and spirit is spirit so God is cool
We elevate spiritual things and belittle physical emotional things
Sacred is sacred all else is meh we control all things
Gotta categorize and compartmentalize
Gotta talk about sex which is spiritual guys
No friend with benefits no one night stands
United physical and you’re also United within
Spiritually United and body impacts the soul
Soul impacts the body and body impacts the soul
We are triune beings of body soul and spirit
Created in the image and likeness of God inherit
Worship through the spirit in spirit and truth
Deeper the flesh the sturdier the roots
Sci fi wise when we die we can still liv
Our soul and spirit live on which is why we give
More than our bodies knowing life after death
Resurrected bodies live forever so step
Luke 10:27 is the commandment we find
Love God with heart soul strength and mind
And love your neighbor as yourself fam
This is the three cord bond in which we stand
If our soul prospers so should our body and spirit
This makes us uniquely human please won’t you hear it
Salvation is a freely given gift of grace from Jesus
Takes no work yet takes effort to live in freedom cause he freed us
Gotta live it out and work it out daily
Ask James he know what’s up then maybe
You will too know that by your fruit you are know
If you prosper in Christ and are connected then know
What fruit is our physical body bearing making us known
As followers of Jesus as we walk this town alone
Faith comes by hearing and by hearing the words of Christ
We declare the gospel through our words as well as our life
You can declare the good news with your bodies as well
Beyond tattoos and piercings and clothing we tell
Our bodies are walking billboards of what’s going on with us
Not to mention within us therefore we must trust
If our soul is prospering if our soul is healthy
If our spirit is healthy then you ought to be
Able to see if in your body so true
How will you show the outside what’s living within you
See it in your smile so if you’re happy and you know it
You know by the expressions on your face so show it
You can see it in the eyes and through the soul
Prosper with the spring in your step what’s the goal
Sparkle in your eye but do you feel uncomfortable
1st America 3:8 says following God will make me comfortable
Our bodies matter to God and since they matter to him
They should matter to us as well matter matters and wins
Wonderfully and fearfully made knitted together in the womb
Calipers show how much we can set an example until the tomb
We weren’t spoken into existence we were made out of matter
From the dust an Adam was formed because matter does matter
The problem we have is a spiritual problem
And it’s because we have a body problem
It’s time we stopped being apathetic about it well
Start living more than necessary when it comes to our health
What we do with our body infects our soul
It will always bleed out into the other. Whoa!
Vital health will grow to tell with prosperity
But we gotta live strong live more than necessary
It’s a soul thing no matter what the problem is your problem
If you think it’s a fat problem it could still be a skinny problem
You can’t prosper unless your soul prospers ask doctors
But you’ll never prosper to the fullest unless your health prospers
Whether fit or thin it’s all about health that’s the problem really
You can’t lead people unless you can lead them physically
Literally and figuratively you gotta work your butt off children
Get beyond the desired level with diligence and discipline
what is it that you need to do to conquer yourself
What is it that you need to do to Doctor your health
We are new creations and creations new are we
I pray you will open your eyes look in the mirror and see
Band aides are not solutions to do what you do
Find ways to make your soul prosper first too
You’re saved for works and purpose figure it out
Give God permission to work on every part of your doubt
Who do you trust as your comforter and idolize
Do you worship food or sex or do you worship Christ
Do you walk in power freedom and grace well then I suggest
Let’s choose to stop making excuses and start making progress
Matthew 6:21 says where your treasure is
There your heart will be also kids
You’ll start feeling better once you start doing better
Live comfy or die drowning in his grace dying wetter
Loving better is cleaver as living sacrifices it’s odd
But we are to sacrifice and how we live is how we worship God
1 Corinthians 10:32 whether you eat or drink
Whatever you do, please do to the glory of God just think
6:19,20 says our body is a temple of Holy Spirit within us
We are not our own for we were bought with a price plus
We must glorify God in our body oddly we coddle us
Let go of yourself and let God lead and guide he we can trust
We can sympathize in our own sins but you are enough
We have no spirit of fear but of self control and love
It’s the fruit of the spirit so pray we can hear it
Don’t your hear it it’s the fruit of the spirit so bear it
So let go my soul and trust in him

I was inspired by the question of “Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?” and with the events of what happened today at Umpqua Community College, I was inspired to encourage my fellow believers to remind us not to be on cruise control, and not to be chilling in the back of the pack, and not to be lukewarm Christians.

lyrics

Summer sheep (remember)
Some are asleep (you shall not forget)
…counting sheep (when you slumber)
…inception is deep (have no regret)
I used to be a lover (cruise control)
I used to a brother (drifting and all)
I used to be another (no control)
Exposed undercover (drift and fall)
Ima blade runner (I’m a blade runner)
Queue the stage thunder (queue the staged thunder)
I know you may wonder (do you really wonder)
How to fade summer (time to fade, summer)
Autumn gottem plottin, nodding to the rotten core
The fall causes all to stand tall like before
Where the apple lands is it far from the tree
Is it still fruitful or will it not exist to be
Using advancements and sci fi enhancements
And roids to better how you planned it and this planet
Pure blue skies keep it in the cloud gotta stay green
Know peace in the streets no beef to stay lean
What you lack when you slack in the back
Ewe be attacked in the back of the pack
Just deut not like Amalek did way back when
Lost in the wilderness just chillin in the back again
Dont mean to trouble you some wanna double ewe
Those lion will devour you when friends can’t stomach you
Will you be cucumber cool with your ice cold heart
Or will you be lukewarm that’s a nice bold start
Summer sheep Some are asleep
Walking dead counting sheep
Wake up zombies inception is deep
Tip toe back to bed don’t make a peep
I used to be a lover I used to a brother
I used to be another Exposed undercover
Ima blade runner Queue the stage thunder
I know you may wonder How to fade summer
Alright stand up for your faith right now
If you’re a Christian raise your hand and vow
If you die tonight die a martyr not a victim
Because today you’ll meet your maker you’ll be with him
May he give you peace and grace to your enemies
We used to have frenemies now you gotta be kidding me
So many have sin to please and not a fear of God
On their knees but not praying now that is odd
What you lack when you slack in the back
Ewe be attacked in the back of the pack
Just deut not like Amalek did way back when
Lost in the wilderness just chillin in the back again
Dont mean to trouble you some wanna double ewe
Those lion will devour you when friends can’t stomach you
You’ve been programmed robot not to have feelings
You’re a good android making millions off these killings
Summer sheep
Some are asleep
Walking dead counting sheep
Wake up zombies inception is deep
Talking heads fell asleep
Sleep walking zombies in too deep
I used to be a lover
I used to be a friend
I was just another
Head over heels in sin
Now I’m a blade runner
So queue the stage thunder
I know you may wonder
How I played summer

Single for Sensei

+++

Inspired by G-Eazy and maybe some Karate Kid, this S. Word Single attacks critics and sweeps the leg of the competition. My goal is to show no mercy with this track, just like Sensei taught me. Give me a beat, and I will put him in a body bag.

lyrics

Swing it ninja swing it ninja swing it
Apples getting tossed (like a fruit salad) Sensei’s gonna bring it
Y’all slippin tryna hang (loose) like a banana hammock
I’m laughing like Gallagher (as I smash it) I can’t stand it
Ninjas doing backflips backflips backflips
Anchormen don’t sink ships we think quick
Yall delinquent not hesitant with them loose lips
Orange you glad I’m not offering grey goose tips
If no man is an island who ya gonna hang loose with?
Yall a nuisance with your prejudiced nooses
Id rather slip, not round ya clowns here’s my two cents
Pictures worth a 1000 words I’m painting you cabooses
Yall frontin right now but will end up in the end again
Sorry my friend too many frenemies tryna begin again
101 under the son but sill I’m feelin so cool
Yall can’t steal my honey like Winnie the pooh
You jerks can’t jerk me want beef like jerky
Yall can’t hurt me I’m retired like James I’m worthy
Yall just idols in America small i – two l’s
Yall aren’t real gods just a small g oh well
College kids think I’m narrow minded
I’m not a sparrow blinded
You belong on tv like what’s his name I dont know
Preaching from the bible but not preaching the bible
It’s not a game it’s a revival
Forget the fame it’s survival
Money got you funny as for me I’ve been frank
Your ego will cash out when you invest in banks
Ask Tyra or Elizabeth they know egonomics
If we can’t stomach the truth then we go vomit
But still you’re pumped up like you’re drawing water
You’re a haughty no father so who you calling hotter
You would be so blessed if you only you obeyed
But you’re found in distress all to my dismay
So where do you begin can you ascend before you descend
Once you prune the grapevine and circumcise the sin
Tell me whose face you seek when you look in the mirror
Oh dear, aren’t you aware that you are an image bearer
So why don’t you reflect the sun with respect
you’re more than an evolved speck all hands on deck
You’re beauty can be radiant like standing in a sunny room
Again reflect the son you’re the bride awaiting the honeymoon
My friend life is doomed if we aren’t born again
Not in the womb but in the living water we are cleansed

lyrics

+++

It’s a sign, a sign of the times
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I can’t deny, why try, we all die
We dont get that high, still we try to fly

It’s no surprise my sighs, until our demise
swallow sugarpills, in the form of white lies
trans and unisex, no longer gals and guys
one size fits all, I mean grooms for brides

There’s plenty room for lies, so why be ashamed
it used to be a game, no more players left to play
game over man, thought we had a 1up
same over fam, yet families are told to shut up

You can’t be liberal, you can’t be conservative
you gotta be lukewarm, who needs to get or give
just be mediocre and accept this award
all for participation and not following the LORD

You used to be bored when you didnt have chores
but now you explore then afford the accords
not to mention afairs, its not fair life is too short
turn up your pimp juice the ball’s in your court

get turnt get lit get burnt get bent
thought love was heavensent, you never smelt that scent
the aroma of love and sweet compassion
it used to be ever lasting, now its got us asking

Is this is a sign, a sign of the times
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I can’t deny, why try, we all die
We dont get that high, still we try to fly

It’s no surprise my sighs, until our demise
swallow sugarpills, in the form of white lies
trans and unisex, no longer gals and guys
one size fits all, I mean grooms for brides

So many tongues, so many languages used
used to be babeling, until words were abused
on the same page, what about the same book
if you say only God can judge you, get the same look

now you’re shooked ain’t no part time crooks
you can steal the constitution, but not the good book
take a look, you’ve been reading it wrong
take a look, you’ve been quoting it wrong

think this is a sad song, it’s not the song of songs
when it comes immoral people i see throngs of throngs
i see it plain as day, im happy i am gay
it’s like looking in the mirror when you walk gthis way

so throw ya hands up, matter of fact show me dueces
waiting for seven years of truces, no excuses
you can see my bruises, this is not news kids
have you not read? This is what good news is

This is a sign, a sign of the times
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I can’t deny, why try, we all die
We dont get that high, still we try to fly

It’s no surprise my sighs, until our demise
swallow sugarpills, in the form of white lies
trans and unisex, no longer gals and guys
one size fits all, I mean grooms for brides

Single for Sadducees

+++

Because the Sadducees were more concerned with politics than religion,
they were unconcerned with Jesus until they became afraid He might bring unwanted Roman attention.
It was at this point that the Sadducees and Pharisees united
and conspired to put Christ to death it as ignited (John 11:48-50; Mark 14:53; 15:1).
Other mentions of the Sadducees are found in Acts 4:1 and Acts 5:17 too
and the Sadducees are implicated in the death of James (Acts 12:1-2)
The Sadducees ceased to exist in A.D. 70. I summize
Since this party existed because of their political and priestly ties,
when Rome destroyed Jerusalem and the temple in A.D. 70,
the Sadducees were also destroyed. It’s sad you seeBut do they still exist with another name or movement
Are they in cults or religion or how would they do it

Maybe they are authors who write bogus fiction
Or maybe they Hebrew Roots claiming a new religion

Oh, the mystery is in the history so buy my book it’s exquisite
If you still don’t get it, redial, you might have missed it

+++

lyrics

Sadducees today, don’t exist persay
I would actually say, the area is rather grey
It’s sad you see, because of some Hebrew Roots
Extremely conservative Rabbis have twisted the truth
You can see them today, some might call them a Cahn
You can see how some stray, when some might use John
They’ve been quoting scripture wrong, all along
And now I am wrong, because I say they’re wrong
Four Blood Moons, or lunar eclipses
In store love blooms, and evil is eclipsed kids
These kids still playing games, tryna hit the reset button
Yet they want us to buy their books like food for a glutoon
Here’s food for a thought something you never thought of holler
Why are preppers and survivalist buying into bottom dollar
What I mean is why yall funding these cats that be frontin
I saw read the parable of the ten talents, truly learn something
If you still don’t get it, redial, you might have missed it
1-800-Give2Live, don’t forget that 6th digit
This is not the L-word, naw, it’s the S-Word
So onward I will march soldiers, time to move forward
So many sadducees, try to seduce you and me
I am only 33, but I’m here to set my people free
So many sadducess, try to seduce me and you
I’ll loose what heaven’ll loose, I’m here to state the truth
Religiously, the Sadducees
were more conservative in one main area of doctrine.
The Pharisees gave oral tradition equal authority
to the Word of God written
while the Sadducees considered only the written Word to be from God
The Sadducees preserved the authority of the written Word of God
especially the books of Moses (Gen. through Duet.)
While they could be commended for this, some say JUST DO IT
they definitely were not perfect in their doctrinal views. I’m sure
The following is a brief list of beliefs they held that contradict Scripture:1. They were extremely self-sufficient to the point of denying God’s involvement in everyday life.
2. They denied any resurrection of the dead, especially Christ (Matthew 22:23; Mark 12:18-27; Acts 23:8).
3. They denied any afterlife, holding that the soul perished at death,
and therefore denying any penalty or reward after the earthly breath
4. They denied the existence of a spiritual world, like angels and demons
(Acts 23:8) even has Pharisees screamin

If you still don’t get it, redial, you might have missed it
1-800-Give2Live, don’t forget that 6th digit
This is not the L-word, naw, it’s the S-Word
So onward I will march soldiers, time to move forward

So many sadducees, try to seduce you and me
I am only 33, but I’m here to set my people free
So many sadducess, try to seduce me and you
I’ll loose what heaven’ll loose, I’m here to state the truth

Single for Shemitah

+++

Once again keeping the Lord’s command
in this matter would be a source of blessing rather than hardship:

…for the Lord will greatly bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance—only if you carefully obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe with care all these commandments which I command you today. For the Lord your God will bless you just as He promised you; you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow; you shall reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over you. (Deuteronomy 15:4a-6)

Among other serious sins, the Israelites disobeyed the Lord’s command not to take foreign wives who came from nations where idolatry and the worship of false gods was practiced (Deuteronomy 7:1-5).  As a result, the idolatrous practices and pagan worship of those nations became an integral part of Israel’s own religious practices. Consequently, the worship of the one true God was largely abandoned and the Law of Moses was largely ignored. By the end of the sixth century B.C., Israel had failed to observe a total of seventy Sabbath / Shemitah years.

In judgment against Israel’s pervasive and persistent sin, God used the Babylonian empire to execute judgment upon the southern kingdom of Judah beginning in 606 B.C., just as He had used the Assyrians over a century earlier against the northern kingdom of Israel. In addition to ultimately leveling Jerusalem and destroying the temple, the Babylonians carried away large numbers of Israelites into captivity—a captivity that lasted for 70 years—one year for each Sabbath year that the nation had failed to observe the Shemitah. Thus, because of this God-imposed Shemitah with the Israelites being in captivity in Babylon, the Promised Land “rested” for the same number of years that the Israelites had failed to allow the land to rest as the Lord had commanded (2 Chronicles 36:20-21).

Of a foreigner you may require it; but you shall give up your claim to what is owed by your brother, except when there may be no poor among you; for the Lord will greatly bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance—only if you carefully obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe with care all these commandments which I command you today. (Deuteronomy 15:3-5)

+++

lyrics

In the Law of Moses, God required that His chosen people, the Children of Israel, cease from their work on the seventh day of each week (the Sabbath). In addition to the Sabbath day, the Lord also instructed Israel to observe every seventh year as a Sabbath, as well. During the Sabbath year, the Israelites were to allow the land to rest from planting and harvesting and to allow whatever came up on its own to be picked by the poor among them. (Exodus 23:10-12; Leviticus 25:1-7)

And just as God had provided a double-portion of manna
on the 6th day of each week this we understand bruh
while the Israelites were in the wilderness they managed
they would not have to work on the Sabbath,
the Lord actually tripled the harvest in the sixth year
to carry them through to the harvest in the first year
of the new seven-year cycle. Not only was it an agrarian cycle,
but it was an economic one, as well.
On the last day of the Sabbath year lets see
lenders were required to forgive or “release”
the meaning of “Shemitah” you think this is it bruh?
borrowers from the obligation of repaying their debts yeah

Over time, the last day of the Sabbath year
and the year itself came to be known as the “Shemitah”
Although one would naturally suppose that such a system would wreck an economy and the lives of those who possessed enough to be lenders rather than borrowers

Sharper Image – Prelude to The S. Word

+++

DIGITAL BOOKLET for Sharper Image

+++

Sharper Image is the prelude to the S. Word, an album Chris Treborn plans on releasing in 2016.

The inspiration for these projects comes from a 2015 Merica, sermons by Timothy Keller, and Hebrews 4:12-13.

Chris Treborn of AnchorMEN is working on defining a Sharper Image within the human heart as he divides misconceptions from absolute truths, by trimming the fat and gristle from the whole cuts of meat.

“It is our nature to seek our identity in the praise of others and in the praise of self. But the praise doesn’t last, and we are never satisfied. God has provided, through Jesus’ death, a new identity to all who know him. This new identity is built on Jesus’ performance rather than on our own; we receive the praise that He deserved. The more we know God, the more our new identity is strengthened and our old identity dies away.”
