Story

Words and Music by Timothy Suckow, written July 2015.

From Exodus 3 and Acts 2

 

The title track for the album, "Burning Bush" compares the encounter of the burning bush by Moses to the disciples receiving the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.

 

Jesus appears many times in the Old Testament as The Angel of the Lord in the form of the preincarnate Christ, including to Moses thousands of years before the virgin birth.

 

A powerful rock track created with multiple samples and original sounds.

Lyrics

I see a holy fire on the mountain climbing higher
No telling who I'll meet - take your sandals off your feet
I see the great oppression of my people now in bondage
The end of their affliction Pharaoh must acknowledge

Who am I to take such a stand?
His fire tells me He's the great I Am
This bush was put in flames for you
Now go and change the whole world view

This burning bush in flames for you
The Holy Spirit is poured out for you
Hear these words for they are true
The power of God we're attesting to

Wind comes out of nowhere like a massive solar flare
We start to speak in tongues - where does this power come from?
God gave the Holy Spirit so all the world would hear it
The truth that Jesus gives His life so we may live

Who am I to take such a stand?
His fire tells me He's the great I Am
His Son He gave to die for you
Now go and change the whole world view

This burning bush flames for you
The Holy Spirit is poured out for you
Hear these words for they are true
Jesus is Christ we're attesting to
