LoveMusic! - For Your Name Is Holy - I Enter The Holy of Holies - Paul Wilbur

For Your Name Is Holy - I Enter The Holy of Holies
Paul Wilbur

Aug. 18, 2017

Greetings LoveMusic! friends,

If you are at all familiar with Messianic praise and worship music, then you know Paul Wilbur. I know the rest of the world does too!

From the times he has led the Feast of Tabernacles celebration in Jerusalem with ICEJ (International Christan Embassy Jerusalem) and did live Integrity Music recordings for Hosanna!Music; to his ministry trips to South America, leading the Hispanics in Spanish worship songs; to those gatherings even in Concord, North Carolina (just outside Charlotte), where I had the joy of hearing him a few years ago - Paul Wilbur has taken the Hebrew/English/Spanish songs of the Lord to the nations!

With his Jewish background, his faith in Yeshua HaMashiach, and his zeal to praise the Living God of Israel with all his might, he has done so with such skill, inspiration, and much encouragement, both through having a tremendous voice and playing his acoustic guitar. Paul has been a real treasure and strength to the Body of Messiah, the One New Man.

I know I have all his recordings, and because of them have led worship many times in church with them. 

We all bless you Paul Wilbur, and give much, much thanks for your gifts and leadership!

Ahava and shalom,

Steve Martin

LoveMusic! - Paul Wilbur - The Shadow of El Shaddai

Featured Song

- Paul Wilbur


July 19, 2017

Greetings to my fellow music friends,

If you have been viewing the Love For His People blog in the past two months, you will now be familiar with these Love Music! posts. I love passionate, believing and encouraging music about the Lord Jesus (Yeshua), and it seems that a lot of you do too. These LoveMusic! posts have become very popular on our ministry site.

And...when I selected songs by Paul Wilbur as the featured one, the interest has been very good. With his Messianic sound, Jewish heritage, and his tremendous voice and guitar skills, no wonder!

So this edition features a new song off his latest CD called "The Shadow of El Shaddai" which actually came out last year. I wasn't aware of it until I was searching for some of my other favorites sung by Paul. This particular song, along with several on the CD, including Blessed Is He Who Comes, Forever Good and Call On The Name, has become one of my favorites too!

I encourage you to listen to The Shadow of El Shaddai using the YouTube link below and then get the CD or MP3 to have the full list of songs. 

You will see three shopping website choices listed below. Just today I bought three more from Paul's website - for gifts to give out, and to support Paul's ministry!

You too be blessed in your blessing,

The Shadow of El Shaddai
Sung by Paul Wilbur
Fear not the arrows that fly by the day
Or terrors that stalk in the night
Fear not the sound or the heat of the battle
Fear not the flame of the fight
For there is a refuge, a tower of strength
A fortress for all who will call on the name
El Shaddai, El Shaddai
Our mighty sustainer, the God who provides
Elohai, Lord of life
The One who delivers, our faithful Defender
A shelter for all who abide
In the shadow of El Shaddai
You speak a word and the sun will set still
The rivers will turn to dry land
A pillar of fire in the darkness of night
They all await Your command
Your shield is called faithful
Your Word is a sword
There’s victory for all
Who will call on the Lord
Though a thousand may fall by my side
Still I will trust, I will fix my eyes

Why the Pope Should Be Worried About Latin America - J. Lee Grady

Why the Pope Should Be Worried About Latin America

Pope Francis
Pope Francis
Pope Francis, leader of the world's Roman Catholics, arrives today in Bolivia—the second country on his three-nation tour. He will meet with President Evo Morales, visit bishops and nuns, and wave at countless adoring fans on the streets of La Paz. His visit will be upbeat, but this revered "pope of the poor" has a big concern: Millions of Latin Americans are leaving the Catholic Church to join Pentecostal groups.
Even though this popular pope is from Argentina and speaks Spanish, he is losing his grip on the region.
The Pew Research Center reported last year that 40 percent of the world's Catholics—more than 425 million—live in Latin America. Yet nearly 1 in 5 Latin Americans now describe themselves as Protestants. The Catholic population of Brazil—the largest Catholic nation in the world—has slipped by more than 20 percent in the past 13 years, according to the Washington Times. Today, about 40 million Brazilians are evangelicals, and this number is expected to grow to 109 million by 2020.
Guatemala was 90 percent Catholic in the mid-1950s. Thanks to a Pentecostal revival that hit the country after the 1976 Guatemala City earthquake, and subsequent waves of church growth, 1 in 3 Guatemalans are now evangelical Christians. Similar growth is occurring in Mexico, Peru, Colombia and Paraguay, where Pope Francis will end his tour next week.
I have seen this Pentecostal revival up close during the past two weeks, when I ministered in Guayaquil, Ecuador and five cities in Bolivia. The statistics don't lie. There is a spiritual hunger brewing in Latin America that outshines what I have seen anywhere on the planet.
In Ecuador I preached at Centro Cristiano de Guayaquil, an Assemblies of God congregation that has grown to 9,000 members in 30 years. It has been pastored all those years by an American couple, Jerry and Janice Smith, who built a 3,300-seat auditorium and a K-12 school that now has 4,600 students. The church ministers to more than 1,600 children every Sunday.
When I spoke at the Guayaquil church I witnessed a spiritual hunger that is rare in the United States. People jammed into the sanctuary for an 8 a.m. service, and some returned for the 10 a.m. and noon service just because they wanted to hear more of God's Word. In each meeting people came to the altar to give their lives to Christ for the first time.
I arrived in Boliva on July 1 to work with Ekklesia Church, a movement that began in the early 1970s after a charismatic revival erupted in the capital city of La Paz. Today the church has planted congregations in dozens of cities all over the mountainous country. The pastor, Alberto Salcedo, and his wife, Silvia—who hosts the popular Vaso Frágil program on the Enlace Network—are training an army of Christians through cell groups, intense worship and leadership classes.
When I visited the Ekklesia church in the mining city of Potosí (which has an elevation of 13,420 feet), hundreds of people packed into a conference center near the center of town. More than 50 people came to the altar for salvation, including a man who had alcohol on his breath. When I prayed for him, he told me that it was the first time he had ever visited a church with his wife and young daughter. He prayed to receive Christ and said he wants to end his alcohol addiction.
I saw similar responses in meetings in other Bolivian cities such as Sucre, Cochabamba and Oruro. Many of the people who have joined these churches are former Catholics who now prefer a lively Pentecostal worship style and more contemporary sermons. They have traded rote tradition for relevant teaching on family, sexual purity and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Pentecostals in Latin America are also challenging long-held cultural traditions, including superstitious idolatry, witchcraft and male superiority. In a meeting I did in La Paz earlier this week, a man who has been regularly beating his wife came to the altar in tears to repent of his abuse.
Another thing I noticed on this trip was the striking number of youth and young adults in the meetings. In Ecuador, more than 1,700 came for a Saturday night youth service, and some literally ran to the altar when I challenged them to go deeper with God. In Bolivia, teenagers often came to the front of the church during worship so they could dance freely—and many responded when I challenged them to pursue the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
These young Latin American believers represent a new generation that is passionate for God. They want so much more than tradition. If Pentecostal churches continue to grow at the pace we are seeing today, it's likely we will witness a total spiritual transformation of the region that Pope Francis calls home.

Present Word Ministries/Robbie Phillips - "I hate . . . !" - English & Spanish

 "I hate . . . !"

I hate your new moon celebrations and your annual festivals.    They are a burden to me. I cannot stand them!
–Isaiah 1:14, New Living Translation

            One of the things God cannot stand is mere ritual. He cannot stand His righteous ordinances and commands simply done as mere ritual and obligation. Here were Israel and Judah. They had the commands of God. They had the priesthood and the shedding of blood, the bringing of offerings and sacrifices. They kept all of these things blamelessly. They were completely innocent of keeping all of that as . . . ritual.
            For ritual it had become. Their hearts were no longer in the worship. Oh they made a wonderful outward show! They kept everything to perfection. But their hearts were not in the worship – they were . . . hypocrites!
            And the Lord was furious with it! He had multitudes of times sent His servants the prophets to cry out against them and their aberrant behavior. And they had listened politely. They bowed their heads and 'submitted' to the words of the prophets – and then they went right on with their detestable behavior.
            Let us hear the word of the Lord! Let us keep ourselves sharp before the Lord our God! Let us fast . . . again, let us fast. Let us pray. Let us seek Him with our whole heart. Let us not put any idols in our lives. Let us not put TV before the Lord. Let us not put football before the Lord. Let us keep our lives pure and innocent before Him. Let us seek Him in His Word. Let us fellowship with other believers. Let us be careful to follow Him. Let us never hear . . . "I hate . . . . "

 ¡"Las aborrezco. . . . "!

Sus lunas nuevas y sus fiestas señaladas las aborrece Mi alma.
 (Isaías 1:14 Nueva Biblia Latinoamericana de Hoy)
          ¡Uno de las cosas que el Señor no puede aguantar es el rito insincero.  Él no puede aguantar que Sus ordenanzas justas y Sus mandamientos sean realizados meramente como ritos y obligaciones.  Así fueron las condiciones en Israel y Judá.  Ellos tenían los mandamientos de Dios.  Ellos tenían el sacerdocio y el derramar de sangre, el traer de los sacrificios y ofrendas.  Ellos guardaban estas cosas sin culpa.  Ellos fueron inocentes de no guardar estas cosas, pero estaban culpables de hacerlos como meros ritos.
            Porque estas cosas habían llegado a ser ritos.  No participaban en las prácticas de adoración de sus corazones.  ¡Claro, ellos mostraron el "show" afuera.  Ellos guardaban todo según las reglas perfectamente.  Pero sus corazones no fueron una parte de la adoración--¡ellos eran. . . . hipócritas!
            Y ¡el Señor estaba furioso con esta condición!  Muchas veces, Él se les había enviado a Sus siervos, los profetas para clamar en condenación contra ellos y su comportamiento aberrante.  Y ellos escuchaban con cortesía.  Ellos inclinaban sus rostros en "sumisión" a las palabras de los profetas--y, luego, continuaban con su comportamiento detestable.
            ¡Que escuchemos la palabra del Señor!  ¡Que atendámonos muy bien delante del Señor nuestro Dios!  ¡Que ayunemos. . . otra vez, ayunemos!.  ¡Que oremos!  ¡Que busquémosle a Él con todo nuestro corazón!  ¡Que no permitamos que los ídolos existan en nuestras vidas!  ¡Que no pongamos el mirar de televisión en lugar del Señor!  ¡Que no pongamos el futbol en lugar del Señor.  ¡Que mantengamos nuestras vidas puras y inocentes delante de Él.  ¡Que busquémosle a Él en Su Palabra¡  ¡Que mantengamos el compañerismo con otros cristianos!  ¡Que seamos atentos en seguirle a Él!  ¡Que nunca oigamos la frase. . . . "Lo aborrezco. . . "

"You Must Believe!" - Robbie Phillips (Present Word Ministries) - English & Spanish

Robbie & Betty Phillips, 
with Abbi & Betty Maley Phillips

‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches’

 "You Must Believe!"
But without faith it's impossible to please Him, for whoever comes to God must believe
that He exists and that He is a Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him!
– Hebrews 11:6

            It seems to me like I've been in a 'difficult place' in my walk with the Lord for quite some time now. By 'difficult place' I mean one of those seasons where nothing's working, nothing's happening, God's not answering, life's come to a standstill, so that the only song that seems to have any relevance is "Gloom, Despair and Agony on Me"!

            If you've been in the Lord for any length of time, you know exactly what I'm talking about. You dial heaven and ask to please speak with the Lord; the angel who answers says He's "not available right now" and "would you please call back at a later time". The second time you call you get a Busy Signal. On your third attempt you get a recording: "This number is no longer in service."

            Enter Hebrews 11:6. There's a little 'four-letter word' there that's discomfiting when you're in the difficult place. It's that little word 'must'. Anyone who comes to God . . . MUST believe (1) that God exists to begin with, and (2) that He's a Rewarder of those who diligently seek . . . HIM (ie, He's not a Rewarder of those who merely seek His 'rewards' while disregarding seeking Him).

            "MUST Believe." "MUST." Hmm. This is a word both to Christians (ie, supposedly believers) and to non-Christians (ie, supposedly non-believers) alike. The Holy Spirit does not say here:

            "It would be so neat if when you come to God you might consider believing Him!"

            "If you'd just believe God – He would be so relieved!"

            "How noble and magnanimous of you to choose to believe God!"

            "I'd be so honored and pleased if you'd believe Me!"

            "Please . . . please . . . I entreat you: Please believe Me. Please!"

            Nope. Nyet. Nicht. Nein. Nada. Negatory. No. The above-mentioned four-letter word is simply, MUST – whether you're a believer or non-believer the demand is ever the same – MUST. No discussion, no excuses, no exceptions, no exemptions, no substitutions. MUST Believe Him/in Him. MUST.

            When you're in the difficult place, the challenge is to . . . Believe. (1) That God IS there ("He exists"), so that you believe that He hasn't forgotten you. AND to Believe: (2) That He is a Rewarder if you 'hang tough' with your faith and keep pressing in to Him.

            Believing in Him isn't Optional. You MUST believe in Him. 

You MUST cast off Disbelief. It is DISPLEASING to Him for you to entertain Doubting about Him. No matter what your Emotions say, no matter how 'good' it feels and how inwardly 'warm and fuzzy' it may be to be cast down and depressed, you MUST reject and resist that tendency – and with jaw-tightened, teeth-clenched, fist-closed Fierce Resolve, you MUST Declare your Belief in Him and His ability to reward. 

And you MUST do it over-and-over, resolutely standing in your Faith. There's no other way to PLEASE GOD.

            You Must Believe in Him. You simply . . . MUST.

"Tiene que creer"

Y sin fe es imposible agradar a Dios. Porque es necesario que el que se acerca a Dios a crea
que El existe, y que recompensa a los que Lo buscan
-- Hebreos 11:6
            Me parece que yo he estado en un "lugar difícil" en mi caminar con el Señor por un buen rato.  Con la frase "lugar difícil" quiero decir que es uno de estas temporadas cuando nada funciona y nada está sucediendo; Dios no está contestando; la vida ha llegado un tope para que la única canción que tenga correspondencia con mi situación sea "Pesadumbre, desesperación, y agonía para mí".
            Si usted ha estado con el Señor por un espacio del tiempo, usted sabe de lo que estoy hablando.  Usted marca el número telefónico del cielo y pide, por favor, hablar con el Señor; el ángel que contesta y dice, "Él no está disponible ahora" y " por favor llame más tarde".  La segunda vez usted llama, usted llega el tono de ocupado.  En el tercero intento, usted llega una grabación: "Este numero está afuera del servicio".
            Entra Hebreos 11:6.  Hay "una palabra de cuatro letras [en inglés, 'must' o tener que]" que está presente y está incomodándole cuando usted está en un lugar difícil.  Es la pequeña frase "tiene que".  Cada quien que se acerca a Dios. . . . TIENE que creer (1) que Dios existe en el primer lugar, y (2) que Él es un Recompensador [él que recompensa] de aquellos que le buscan. . . . . a Él (i.e., Él no es un Recompensador de aquellos que meramente buscan a sus 'galardones' mientras le pasan por alto a Él mismo).
            "TIENE que creer".  "TIENE que. . . "  Hmm.  Esta es una palabra para cristianos (supuestamente, los creyentes) y para los no-cristianos (i.e., supuestamente, no-creyentes) mutuamente.  El Espíritu Santo no dice aquí:
            "Seria bonito que cuando usted se acerca a Dios, tal vez, podría considerar creer en Él".
            "Si usted creería en Dios -- Él sería tanto tranquilizado".
            "¡Cuán noble y magnánimo de usted escoger a creer en Dios!"
            "Sería yo tanto honrado si usted creería en Mí".
           ¡Por favor, por favor, Te ruego: Por favor, créeme.  Por favor!
            De ninguna manera. Nyet. Nicht. Nein. Nada. Negativo. No.  La frase de arriba de 'tiene que' sencillamente es TIENE que -- si usted es creyente o no-creyente la exigencia es igual -- TIENE que.  No discusión, no excusas, no excepciones, no exenciones, no sustituciones.  TIENE que creer en Él.  TIENE que.
            Cuando usted llega a ese lugar difícil, el reto es. . . . creer.  (1) que Dios está presente ("Él existe"), para que crea que Él no se haya olvidado de usted.  Y creer: (2) que Él sea un 'Recompensador' si usted 'aguanta firme' con su fe y continúa acercándosele a Él.
            El creer en Él no es una opción.  TIENE que creer en Él.  TIENE que echar afuera la incredulidad.  No es agradable a Él para usted seguir dudando.  No importa lo que sus emociones digan.  No importa cuan bueno se sienta y cuan bueno sea de ser desconsolado y deprimido, TIENE que rechazar y resistir esta tendencia -- y con mandíbula apretada, con los dientes apretados, con el puño cerrado con determinación feroz, TIENE que declarar su creencia en Él y en Su habilidad de recompensar.  Y TIENE que hacerlo una vez y otra vez, resolutamente, siendo firme en su fe.  No hay otra manera para agradar a Dios.
            Tiene que creer en Él.  Usted sencillamente, TIENE que creer.
