Sunday Worship Music: You Won’t Relent by Jesus Culture

Repeating the work of Jesus Culture this week with You Won’t Relent. Cyber-friend Jackie Wellfonder brought it to my attention, so this is for Jackie (visit her at Raging Against the Rhetoric). Just look at the huge numbers of young people in the crowd in the video. These kids are not today’s problem kids. I well remember being so involved in my church youth groups, where you are encouraged and held accountable, have fun and are kept busy. I remember when it was safe to take a fully-dressed Christmas tree with gifts and food for the family straight to a needy home, rather than picking a name tag from the tree in the church lobby. We need to think about, and pray for, the youth ministries and the magnificent job they are doing across the country – music ministries not the least among them.

You Won’t Relent

You won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours.

You won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours.

You won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours.

You won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours.

I set you as a seal, upon my heart
as a seal upon my arm
for there is love,
that is strong as death
jealousy demanding as the grave
and many waters can not quench this love

You won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours.

You won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours.

You won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours.

You won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours.

I set you as a seal, upon my heart
as a seal upon my arm
for there is love,
that is strong as death
jealousy demanding as the grave
and many waters can not quench this love

You won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours.

You won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours.

[Chorus:]
Come be the fire inside of me
Come be the flame upon my heart
Come be the fire inside of me
Until You and I are One
Until You and I are One.

Come be the fire inside of me
Come be the flame upon my heart
Come be the fire inside of me
Until You and I are One
Until You and I are One.

I don’t want to talk about you like you’re not in the room
I want to look right at you, sing right to you
I don’t want to talk about you like you’re not in the room
I want to look right at you, sing right to you

I don’t want to talk about you like you’re not in the room
I want to look right at you, sing right to you

Romans_10-14_1

Carl has a very interesting column this week taken from Romans 10 and the verse that really caught my attention is 14:

14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? (NIV)

Conversation among some of my friends sometimes drifts to: is there anyone, anywhere in the world who has no knowledge of Jesus Christ today? Are there still tribes so isolated that they know nothing of the outside world. That’s a subject for another time, but it came to mind again with Romans 10:14

Carl gets deep in the Greek for this one, and one of the words he discusses is “rhe’-ma.” Very familiar to me because Rhema Bible College is a well-known school in my area where young and old alike, come to study. Many do not go into the ministry. They study to enrich their own understanding. The school started by Kenneth Hagin, Sr. sent numerous high-profile “prosperity preachers” out ‘among us.’ As the story goes, before Mr. Hagin died he summoned the most egregious of those prosperity pastors to his death bed and explained he had written a book to instruct them on the error of their ways. You can read that story here if you are unaware of the dustup (which was a big one).

Nevertheless, chances are, in any nice restaurant in my area you will find a waiter/waitress studying at Rhema. They are fresh-faced, genuine, polite but friendly and thrilled to be at this time and place in their lives. If you want a good employee in the Tulsa area, search for one from Rhema Bible College.

So, I hadn’t thought about what the word “rhema” meant, but now that Carl has explained it, it makes sense. Read his very precise study of the nuances of the word “faith” at GOD’S ANSWER is Always Jesus.

    Maggie … Peg and I are heading to our 10 AM Worship Service now. After watching this video, I feel as if we’ve already had church. I know I keep using this same word, but … WOW. Thanks. What a great way to start the day.

    Blessings once again …

  • Carl, were you aware of Rhema Bible College?

    • Carl Middleton

      Oh yes. We used to get Kenneth Hagin’s monthly magazine for years. But that was a long time ago, before Rhema was started. Learned a lot from him. He was a real man of God.

      • Thanks for responding Carl. I thought it was widely known, but didn’t know for sure.

  • Richard

    Whenever I was in Tulsa visiting family and friends at Christmas, a highlight was to go to Broken Arrow and “see the lights”. The displays were enormus and breathtaking. It was hard to believe all the work those young people had done, just to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The feeling one experienced while walking around the show of lights cannot be described. Eventhough we were freezing, no one wanted to leave when it was time to go home. Thanks Maggie for helping bring back wonderful memories. God bless.

    • Richard, the lights are still there and the lines of traffic driving through them are as long as ever. Walking through the display is the way to do it, but the slow drive makes it all the more stunning. We don’t go every year, but always enjoy it, and when we have guests, the Rhema campus is first on the list.
