After listening to one I was curious to compare it to the original version and in searching I found that many people have written their own version of Hallelujah.  I learned that the true author, Leonard Cohen, who is Jewish, wrote these words from his own perspective, but when Kelley Mooney was asked to sing it for Easter Mass, she decided the beautiful music was worth far more so she wrote her own Easter version of Hallelujah.  (Lyrics are at the end).

 

 

The next one is unforgettable, and the one following is Leonard Cohen’s own.  The last one is Shrek.

Lyrics:

Kelly Mooney’s Hallelujah

A crown of thorns placed on His head

He knew that He would soon be dead

He said did you forget me Father did you?

They nailed Him to a wooden cross

Soon all the world would feel the loss

Of Christ the King before His Hallelujah

Hallelujah x4

 

He hung His head and prepared to die

Then lifted His face up to the sky

Said I am coming home now Father to you

A reed which held His final sip

Was gently lifted to his lips

He drank His last and gave His soul to glory

Hallelujah x4

 

The soldier who had used his sword

To pierce the body of our Lord

Said truly this is Jesus Christ our Savior

He looked with fear upon his sword

Then turned to face his Christ and Lord

Fell to his knees crying Hallelujah

Hallelujah x4

 

Took from his head the thorny crown

And wrapped him in a linen gown

And laid him down to rest inside the tomb

The holes in his hands, his feet and side

Now in our hearts we know he died

To save us from ourselves oh hallelujah

Hallelujah x4

 

Three days went by again they came

To move the stone to bless the slain

With oil and spice anointing hallelujah

But as they went to move the stone

They saw that they were not alone

But Jesus Christ has risen Hallelujah

Hallelujah x4

Hallelujah x4

 

 

A Priest Stuns Wedding Guests with his amazing version of Hallelujah

We join together here today,

To help two people on their way,

As Leah and Chris start their life together,

And now they’ve reached their special date,

We’ve come to help them celebrate,

And show them how much we ALL love them too, YEAH!

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah,

As Leah‘s walking up the aisle,

And Chris looks up and gives a smile,

The love that flows between them fills the church, YEAH!

With Leah’s friends and family at  her side,

She really is the blushing bride,

With love and pride they lead her

Hallelujah,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah,

With the priest and the family who lead the prayers,

We say our lines and they say theirs,

I guide them through the ceremony, IN UNION

And in this house of God above,

They join their hands to show their love,

And say those most important words I DO, YEAH!,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah,

Hallelujah,

 

 By Cloverton:

I’ve heard about this baby boy

Who’s come to earth to bring us joy

And I just want to sing this song to you

It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth

The minor fall, the major lift

With every breath I’m singing Hallelujah

Hallelujah

 

A couple came to Bethlehem

Expecting child, they searched the inn

To find a place for You were coming soon

There was no room for them to stay

So in a manger filled with hay

God’s only Son was born, oh Hallelujah

Hallelujah

 

The shepherds left their flocks by night

To see this baby wrapped in light

A host of angels led them all to You

It was just as the angels said

You’ll find Him in a manger bed

Immanuel and Savior, Hallelujah

Hallelujah

 

A star shown bright up in the east

To Bethlehem, the wisemen three

Came many miles and journeyed long for You

And to the place at which You were

Their frankincense and gold and myrrh

They gave to You and cried out Hallelujah

Hallelujah

 

I know You came to rescue me

This baby boy would grow to be

A man and one day die for me and you

My sins would drive the nails in You

That rugged cross was my cross, too

Still every breath You drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah

 

The word, “Hallelujah” is important to me because at the end of a very busy day when the day’s work is finished I always hear the angels sing that in my head.   It’s the song with only the words, “Hallelujah”.  Wish I could find it now.  It means “you are finished go to bed”.

This Hallelujah in the you tube videos means “Happy Easter”.   Thank you for the feeling I have in my heart right now for you.

Our law giver

Do the politicians realize that Jesus is our law giver?

A friend had the courage to “peer” at truth as though Jesus is her Elder Brother.  I say to her:

Jesus is our Elder Brother.
If death is not, then neither is birth, for life is eternal.

If Jesus is our elder brother, when did we come to know Him as Brother? Agency is also eternal, and if we are as individual as our Elder Brother Jesus Christ, we inherit divine nature which comes from God, our Eternal parent(s).

The idea that sin doesn’t exist in heaven is one that I can subscribe to. Jesus says, “Come. Follow Me.” He leaves sin by the wayside, ignoring it as though it doesn’t exist, and keeps walking, and when we can shed our sin, we follow Him. We are totally free to choose our own destiny.

Darkness cannot be measured, but light can. Darkness is the absence of light. Hate is the absence of love. Sin is the absence of obedience. Fear is the absence of hope. Guilt is the absence of purity. Confusion is the absence of understanding. Sadness is the absence of joy.

There is no punishment, no eternal consequence, but there is IS.

IS is a no word, just like nothing is the absence of something.

The earth we rotate on is masterfully built, and the universe we sail through is colorfully executed and full of light and warmth. I wonder how dark outer darkness will be. Those who knowingly choose darkness over light will someday find out. But outer darkness comes with rejecting, after a full understanding, truth.

If we choose to walk in the light, we’ll become accustomed to it, and bask in our own glow.

You say it takes courage to peer at truth, and I cheer you on because truth has an effect, step by step.

I must be doing something right because I live far away from fear and guilt.  Whenever you assume “we” do this or that, I want to disagree,  because I don’t usually feel what you say everyone feels.

I have full confidence in searching for truth. I embrace all truth, whether it is found in science or religion.

I have experimented along the way and have learned from my mistakes, and I hope not to make them again, because mistakes can be painful. If it weren’t for pain we wouldn’t know not to repeat our mistakes. As one grandparent said to their grandchildren, “I hope your parents allow you to solve your own problems and fix your own mistakes.”

We are given agency and intellect, with which there is no end to what we can learn and do.

The proud wish God would agree with them. They aren’t interested in changing their opinions to agree with God’s.

 I’m examining the difference between Obama’s government and the kind of government we have in the church.  We both subscribe to a leader, Obama on the one hand, the Prophet on the other.   What is the real difference?   Obama spends our money freely, and taxes more if needed.  The church spends its money too – on temples, churches, schools, humanitarian aid.  Where does the church get its money?  Voluntary donations.  Is there any pressure to donate?  We have basically entered into a covenant where all that we have belongs to the church:  our talents, our time, our property, for the benefit of helping our fellow man.  Obama wants us to do the same thing, give all we have to help those who don’t have as much.

We have two very distinct systems of government here, you could call each one a socialist system, but there is one huge difference.  Christ could come to earth and assume His rightful place as King of Kings, Lord of Lords, which would place Him in a world government leadership position.  We would hand him back the keys to the kingdom and He would rule and reign.  Period.   Anyone willing to subscribe to His system would be included in it.  All others would be ushered off to the “waiting place”.  

The Waiting Place

Unfortunately the waiting place is not here on earth, but somewhere in heaven, which means at the time of Christ’s coming some will remain, others will be ushered out.   I don’t see this act of God as a vengeful hateful God fulfilling His prophetic words by destruction of the wicked.  I see it as an act of love for His people.  Who are His people?  Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Protestants, and anyone who is found holding true to their belief in God and to true principles at the moment of His coming.  They are people who have overcome the influence of satan in their homes by preparing a sanctuary there for the family.  

How will His government look, and in what way will it be different from Obama’s.  (btw I just use the name Obama as symbolic of the world government that is surely coming our way, if it isn’t here already)  We will enjoy freedom, because that is God’s gift to man.  We will be free to choose, but we will choose good, because that is who we are.  Christ is waiting for people to become like Him.   He is waiting for us to overcome wicked and evil, corruption and tyranny.  We still have a lot to do.  Are we ready for the battle which is bearing down upon us now?  

To my Christian friends who fear God for all the wrong reasons,  God is not who you think He is.  The waiting place is a place of hope and correction, of missionary work and improvement.  It is a place of choice and freedom to make choice.  But, we are all bound by law and space, we cannot enter into space we are not prepared to enter.  Light burns.  God is a loving god, and there is a place for everyone, suited to themselves.  
There is a law

This I file under Chassis

CHASSIS: God is the power that carries us, gives us breath, and agency to create our own wagon and chart our own course. The chassis is the framework that holds the box flat and balances the weight.

 

Satan: God, Christ, Holy Ghost:
Goal: Goal:
To force mankind to live eternally in his kingdom, on earth and beyond the grave.   Moses 1:39   This is my work and my glory:  to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.
   
Procedure: Procedure:
Develop secret societies, financed secretly by the government, prepared to take over and redistribute wealth, according to guidelines and restrictions placed by the government, when called upon to mobilize. The people will be informed and prepared to volunteer their lives to protect their families, their freedoms, and their right to worship God according to the dictates of their own conscience.
Follow the Progressive movement, which is full of secret combinations with the intent to   

  • destroy the freedom of mankind
  • degenerate the family
  • erase God 
The Constitution of the United States is an inspired document for our day.  The Book of Mormon is also.  Both have outlined and explained procedures, and warn of dangers.  The Book of Mormon includes cause and effect outcomes of good and poor choices. 
   
Guidelines: Guidelines:
The family must be  broken The family and God will remain central to life
Gay/Lesbien/transgender alternatives to be taught in schools as acceptable standards, in the name of tolerance. True standards of fidelity, modesty, virtue will be the guidelines followed by a righteous people
Environmentalists will use propaganda to convince people the earth is more sacred than God. God stated the earth was created for man.  We will use wisdom in our care of it, and recognize our valuable resources. 
   
Outcomes: Outcomes:
A government with one man at the helm, and all populations subservient to him.  A government structure which values freedom, knows right from wrong, and can govern with God as a partner.
Religions will collapse, as faith in God is destroyed The Church of Jesus Christ will attract members from all faiths, and unitedly they will overcome evil by their righteous living.
Populations will self-destruct Light will increase in the earth
Calamities will increase in the earth: volcanoes, earth quakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, stars will fall from heaven. Christ will come.  Ten lost tribes will return.  New Jerusalem will be built on the American continent.  Temple in Old Jerusalem will be built again.  The earth will be renewed.

Margaret Thatcher: “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”
That time has come, in fact it’s been happening for many years, but since the government does not want to face the facts, they keep increasing the deficit, as though it is a bottomless pit. But eventually the pit will consume the whole world as it keeps growing bigger and bigger in relation to the debt. Every time they need more money they get their shovel out and dig up some more. But they are digging too big a hole.

I’d like to propose a system. This system was introduced by Jeremiah the Prophet, or by God through Jeremiah the Prophet. God says not until his Gospel is preached and accepted throughout the world will it happen.

I file this under Canopy Rings (BOWS): Goals, Our lofty Goals that reach heaven-ward. Just like bows that expand the space inside the wagon, so do goals expand our capability and accomplishment.

My goal is to help preach this Gospel of Jeremiah to the whole world.

How many times have we as parents heard the whining cry, “are we there yet?”  I have said it to my own parents many times.   Along with the words comes a longing to be there soon.  When I reflect upon how I felt back then, it is comparable to how I feel now.  I’ll admit I listen to too much Glenn Beck.  I download his radio show every day, plus watch him on FOX news, and I’m beginning to wonder if we’re almost there.

Symbolically, predictably, I would say and understand it as it relates to myself.  Am I ready yet?  Are my projects done?  Is my family history organized?  Is every room in my own house neat and orderly?  

A few years ago on the very day I completed all my projects, when all 8 were still under our roof,  I went to bed in total peace, and woke up to the sound of gun shots outside my window.  I jumped out of bed and looked out of my door to see fire in the garage.  The only reason I could see it was because I had propped the garage door open before I went to bed, and left the light on to lure all the flies into my trap there.   Flies go toward the light, and I used to set out bait to get rid of them that way.  The flies were the only thing left that I needed to clean out of my house.  I had a housekeeper helping me with my projects, and she knew we had just finished everything.  Walls, cupboards, drawers, all neat and organized.  I was prepared, and then the fire.  

Since 1994, there hasn’t been one moment when I could say my projects are all done.  I have intentionally left something undone (a total mess).   So, if God is waiting for me, I’m not helping things along at all.  How about I pretend that it’s me He’s waiting for?  And, see what happens the day after……….
