Revelation in Music Therapy – Patchwork Quilt Bible, 03DEC
Ah – my Music therapy became a great bible lesson today – the whole book of Revelation in song!
I have never read the whole Revelation chapter – but it sounds fabulously complex as a song – it’s Genesis – 1970’s – “Supper’s Ready” – I really really love how the music changes over the course of – and I really really love the image of being in the bride of Christ – my blue eyes are ready for HIS…
Of course reading the scripture is key – and there is so much to understand in it… it will take me a while to tease it all out of the song – but yeah – end times is going to be some crazy unreal set of events – whenever it happens! (and actually I hear that Revelation events might be ongoing, hmmm…).
I am not embarrassed to say that I have not read everything in the Bible – and certainly God has brought me to a place where He will feed scripture to me – even in song – so I wrote this statement for God – thanking Him for making me His patchwork quilt:
I am a patchwork quilt of Bible understanding – God makes a warm blanket out of me even though my bible knowledge looks to be a patchwork quilt made of a multitude of bible scraps… God’s WORD is sewn delicately and strongly together into my heart by God’s gentle hands…
Here’s the whole book of Revelation – so complex – I love that at the end Jesus will come for his Bride, the church:
12 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
Here is part of the Genesis song:
Supper’s Ready – Genesis
[I. Lovers’ Leap]
Walking across the sitting-room, I turn the television off.
Sitting beside you, I look into your eyes.
As the sound of motor cars fades in the night time,
I swear I saw your face change… it didn’t seem quite right.
…And it’s “hello babe, with your guardian eyes so blue.
Hey my baby – don’t you know our love is true.”
Coming closer with our eyes, a distance falls around our bodies.
Out in the garden, the moon seems very bright,
Six saintly shrouded men move across the lawn slowly.
The seventh walks in front… with a cross held high in hand.
…And it’s “hey babe, your Supper’s waiting for you.
Hey my baby, don’t you know our love is true.”
I’ve been so far from here,
Far from your warm arms.
It’s good to feel you again,
It’s been a long long time. Hasn’t it?
