Let not your heart be troubled,
Ye believe in God and in Me;
In my Father's house are many mansions,
I go to prepare a place for thee."

Would your heart be right if He came tonight?

Why will you wait my brother?
Promises of God are all true;

And soon He will come again for you.

Remember The Sabbath (Christian Music) - Reggie & Ladye Love Smith and Andrews University Choir

In this video, well known Christian musicians, Reggie & Ladye Love Smith and Andrews University Choir sing a song that has become very popular in the Seventh day Adventist Church. "Remember the Sabbath" is a song that reminds us to keep the Sabbath holy.  The Seventh day Adventist Church is a evangelical church that came into being in the early 19th century in America. One of its fundamental doctrines is the Sabbath. Unlike most Christians, Adventists go to church on Saturday, the seventh day of the week as they believe that the commandment to observe seventh day is still valid.

"Remember The Sabbath To Keep It Holy" was composed by Dr. Zork of Andrews University in the US. I will let Dr Zork explain how he came to compose this song. 

Dr Zork: "The first song is simply the most distinct or at least in the public imagination the most distinct Adventist doctrine that is the Sabbath is Saturday. The day of rest commanded to be observed through Moses the commandments and Adventists believe that is an eternal message. God rested after six days of creation, we should rest too, okay, and this is remember the Sabbath and I love the song because we live in modern times with a lot of stress. At any given moment we could think I need to do this, I need to do that. God says slow down, Amen, I want you to honor me and remember the Sabbath. And who wrote this song? I wrote Remember the Sabbath and my wife contributed to it lyrically." 


Below are the lyrics for this beautiful song:-

Remember the Sabbath to keep it Holy,
honour the day
That our Lord commands us to cease our toiling,
and we obey,
That we may know Him,
and learn His patient ways.
Keeping the Sabbath holy, 
in all our days.

So enter His temple with high thanksgiving,
worship the Lord,
and fill up this house, 
with your voices ringing, 
let them be heard,
for we adore Him,
and lift our hearts in praise
keeping the Sabbath holy,
in all our days.

Remember the Sabbath to keep it Holy,
honour the day
That our Lord commands us to cease our toiling,
and we obey,
That we may know Him,
and learn His patient ways.
Keeping the Sabbath holy, 
in all our days.
Remember The Sabbath To Keep It Holy Song

Southern Gospel: Andrae Crouch's 'Soon And Very Soon' (Instrumental) by Greg Buchanan

It is now time to watch and listen to a very famous Southern Gospel song composed by the late Andrae Crouch in 1978. The video below is an instrumental rendition of 'Soon And Very Soon' by Greg Buchanan. The song 'Soon And Very soon is based on Revelation 21:3-4: “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.   He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’” (KJV) . This is definitely the wish of all Christians that this should coming should really be soon and very soon as we are really tired of this world. Come Lord Jesus.


Below are the lyrics of the song, "Soon and Very Soon" by Andrae Crouch.

Verse 1
Soon and very soon,
We are going to see the King,
Soon and very soon,
We are going to see the King.
Soon and very soon,
We are going to see the King,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
We are going to see the King.

Verse 2
No more crying there,
We are going to see the King,
No more crying there,
We are going to see the King.
No more crying there,
We are going to see the King,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
We are going to see the King.

Verse 3
No more dying there,
We are going to see the King,
No more dying there,
We are going to see the King.
No more dying there,
We are going to see the King,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
We are going to see the King.

Interlude
Hallelujah.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah.

Bridge
Should there be any rivers we must cross,
Should there be any mountains we must climb,
God will supply all the strength that we need,
Give us grace ’til we reach the other side.
We have come from every nation,
God knows each of us by name.
Jesus took His blood and He washed our sins,
And He washed them all away.
Yes, there are some of us,
Who have laid down our lives,
But we all shall live again,
On the other side.

Ending
Hallelujah.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah.
Hallelujah.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah.
Hallelujah.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.
Hallelu...

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah.

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.

Refrain

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,
Who orderest all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.

Refrain

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan’s tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people save,
And give them victory over the grave.

Refrain

O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death’s dark shadows put to flight.

Refrain

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.

Refrain

O come, O come, great Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times once gave the law
In cloud and majesty and awe.

Refrain

O come, Thou Root of Jesse’s tree,
An ensign of Thy people be;
Before Thee rulers silent fall;
All peoples on Thy mercy call.

Refrain

O come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,

And be Thyself our King of Peace.

Tim Parton & Cadet Sisters Christmas Hymns, Songs And Carols Special (3ABN)

Christian Music: Tim Parton & Cadet Sisters Christmas Holiday Special. 

Danny Shelton: Hello, and welcome to 3ABN today. We have a special program for you today. We have a program that is lined with music. And talking about music, we got some great music for you today.  And first of all, we're gonna-- in just a few moments we're gonna be introducing you to Brother Tim Parton. Tim is an absolutely incredible musician. We give God the glory for that. And I know Tim gives God the glory for that. 
But he plays and sings with such an anointing and what a privilege it's been to work with Tim over the last number of years on many, many projects including Pillars Hymns. And our 3ABN Christmas CD that we did this past year and numerous of my own personal projects that I've done. He's worked with Melody and I guess everybody, John, Evan, and you name it, C.A. And he's been working with so many of us and so Tim is a great arranger, piano player, and most of all, he's a great friend and he's a great Christian that's loves Jesus with all of his heart, soul, and mind.  Then after he's through we're gonna just-- we told him take your time and do a number of songs for us and then after Tim is through, then we're gonna have the Cadet Sisters gonna come and sing us several songs also. So you're gonna be doubly blessed today. Tim is gonna be doing "Deck The Halls"  I think "Joy to the World,"  "It came upon a midnight clear."  "Christ the King." "Peace on Earth."  "We three Kings" and then he's doing one especially that I really love and enjoy and kind of like  a special request things is "God's being Good." And he did this at camp meetings so you can say, well, it's a Christmas song or not but you know, it is. Anytime we uplift the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. So I'm so thankful that he's gonna do this. And, Tim, it's a privilege to have you here today. And we're just gonna turn it over to you now and take your time and I know the folks at home will be blessed. 

Tim Parton: Merry Christmas. It's that time of year. It's the time of gift giving and we are reminded that God gave the perfect gift when He gave His Son. Jesus Christ was given to us and if we would believe in Him we would not perish but have everlasting life. Now I love giving gifts and I love getting gifts. And a couple of years ago I received a gift that was a very special gift,  in fact every time I hear it, I smile, and that's the best kind of gift that you give that all year long He keeps on giving. It's actually a little music box. And the thing that makes me smile is, it plays "Joy to the world." But whoever made it, there was a little glitch that was in the little spindle that plays the music. And for those musicians that they-- what should be an E is an E flat. So it's sound like this. It kind of makes you wince when it goes by. It's less than perfect, isn't it? It's out of tune is what it is. And it reminds me that God gave us His Son, us in an imperfect world. He knew we needed a Savior.
