The Healing combines passionate, modern worship minus the lyrical cheese of much of mainstream modern worship. The songs are unapologetically Gospel-centered, Christ-exalting, and in-your-face anthems perfect for congregational worship or for personal devotion. Utilizing and rewriting three hymns combined with nine brand new worship tunes makes for a unique connection to the past and an ancient-future feel. Several spontaneous worship moments in the studio were captured as well, and the hope is that the listener/worshiper will likewise sense those passionate moments where God's Spirit showed up. CD Insert Blurb: In a culture that is becoming increasingly apathetic and antagonistic to the message of the Gospel, how quickly and easily it is to fall victim to the sin of point-the-fingerism. Sometimes a preoccupation with the darkness surrounding us blinds us to our own darkness. And though unquestionably the darkness that surrounds must be penetrated by the light of the Gospel, unless our own sin is first confronted we are rendered useless and pathetic in the advancement of God's Kingdom here on earth. The ground is fallow in America. But so is it equally fallow in our churches. So is it equally fallow in our own hearts much of the time. Hosea desperately begged God's people to "break up your untilled ground. It is time to seek the Lord until He comes and sends righteousness on you like rain." (Hosea 10:12) If there was one plea for this album, that would be it-to break up your untilled ground. Allow the Holy Spirit of God access to the dark pits of heinous anarchy in your soul that stand in forward opposition to the coming King of Kings. And allow Him to clean you out. Allow Him to heal and soften the dry and hardened ground-that salvation may spring forth-that righteousness may rain down. And when that happens, we can stand as a unified, collective body of Christ holding high His royal banner proclaiming with urgency the soon return of our High King. Our prayer is that this album will be a catalyst to drive you to your knees in repentance, to help stand you up with arms held high in surrender, and to move you out to the frontlines of the battle.
