I went to a concert last night at the Forum in Harrisburg. The El Shaddai Singers were performing--a full symphony orchestra, a full choir, soloists--and what a powerful message delivered through music, words spoken by others.
As the Director of these singers said after one song: "If you can't feel that, then your "feeler" must be stuck!" And yes, such feelings of God's love for us, the power of His Hand, the majesty of His creation, the second coming of Jesus!!
Michael W. Smith wrote the song "Angus Dei" (Latin--Lamb of God) while pondering over these verses from Revelation:
6Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 7He came and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne. 8And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9And they sang a new song:
"You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
and with your blood you purchased men for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation.
10You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,
and they will reign on the earth."
11Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. 12In a loud voice they sang:
"Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!"
13Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing:
"To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!" 14The four living creatures said, "Amen," and the elders fell down and worshiped.
He wrote this song imagining what Heaven will be like--with all the angels and all of the redeemed--falling down and worshiping the Lamb--for worthy is the Lamb--the only ONE who is worthy.
