Anyhow... for anyone interested in the meaning behind our album, this post is for you. We've included our track listing below along with the scriptures chosen to reinforce them...
ASCENSION – And the same one who descended is the one who ascended higher than all the heavens, so that He might fill the entire universe with Himself. Ephesians 4:9-10
I AM A WANDERER, HIDE NOT THIS TESTAMENT – I am a stranger in the earth; do not hide Your commandments from me. Psalms 119:19
MIRAGE – Like the blind we grope along the wall, feeling our way like men without eyes. At midday we stumble as if it were twilight; among the strong, we are like the dead. Isaiah 59:10
CLOAK OF NIGHT – It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Luke 23:44
THE WRITER’S INK – And the glory of the God of Israel [the Shekinah, cloud] had gone up from the cherubim upon which it had rested to stand above the threshold of the Lord's house. And the Lord called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer's ink bottle at his side. Ezekiel 9:3
THE FLOOD – Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water shall flow from within him. John 7:38
WAVES – “Lord if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come.” Matthew 14:28
THE BREAKER ANOINTING – He got up and rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. Matthew 8:26
"The Wind Lost its Breath and the Sea Became as Smooth as Glass" title - Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Psalm 107:28-30
Disclaimer - This album was written over a period of nearly 3 years and has undergone a lot of change and growth in the process. It is far from perfect, but we all really feel our hearts for each song were captured, and that was definitely the most important thing in our eyes. We’ve been blessed with favor and provision that we never could have hoped for, and we thank God for that. He is amazing for using unlikley guys like us who could do nothing in our own strength without His spirit. This album sums up everything this band has been through thus far.
