Our nation has to get back to its foundation in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Chief Cornerstone. A nation divided against itself cannot stand and is bound in confusion. Every heart and mind count when it comes to the destiny of this nation. We know that as individuals becomes free in Christ then they become free to live and make decisions accordingly. Decisions that are for good and not evil. Decisions that lead to prosperity and to a future... and an expected end!
The Lord is using this music to change hearts and minds individually and corporately. We want to see freedom reign in the heart of everyone who struggles with the bondage of oppression, depression and the lies of an enemy whose sole purpose is to rob, steal, kill and destroy. Our desire is to be a vessel that releases the anointing of faith, hope and love where hopelessness, doubt and unbelief have brought about a mindset that excepts a slave mentality. This is why we sing for God and Country! As the individual goes, so does the family. As the family goes, so does the nation. As the nation goes, so does the world. God Bless You! And God Bless America!
John 8:36 So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.
I struggled for years to perform so I could please those around me and could never quite live up. I always failed to meet the expectations of those who in their minds had "arrived." For me it was a place where guilt or condemnation could creep in and bring some form of depression or oppression. It always felt so hopeless to never be able to measure up. The Lord showed me that I could never measure up and that apart from Him I could do nothing. I had to remain in Him and I had to stop running from Him back to my default setting of failure whenever the enemy would come in to accuse me and oppress me with his legalism and lies. In Him and His grace is where He has been able to work within me to will to do His good pleasure. It is in Him where I apprehended the instructions not to remain in sin any longer! I am in Him and He is in me and this is the dance! Won't you join me!

"Backslider Come Home" was written while I was in a halfway house years ago. Frustrated, I stared out the window while I was praying one day when I heard these words.... "I know you're feeling frustrated because things aren't going your way, I know that things seem all messed up but Jesus is still with you today!
I was walking through the halls of the University of Alaska Anchorage when this gal gets my attention and says, "hey, you're that 'Backslider Come Home' dude!" I said, "really, you've heard the song?" She then began to tell me how this song touched her life! Listen to this powerful testimony!

"THE MAN ON THE MOUNTAIN" WHO STILL FIGHTING THE FIGHT AND PAYING HIS DUES TO OUR NATION
This song starts off with "They just want to feel good, they want to get high" echoing the voice of the underworld addict who while doing things in secret hopes deep down inside of their addiction for the Lord to show them the way out before it is too late. Are you ready for the Lord to send you to the broken ones who are in bondage to depression, oppression, and hopelessness ? Get ready to love them so He can send you! 2 Sam 4:14 He devises ways for the banished ones to return to Him
