Selfishness Breeds Arrogance

Before when Christ walked on earth
Money was nothing much to degree
It didn't play a significant role
He had ability to know and see

When it was needed to pay taxes
He told one of his disciples to
"Go out and catch a fish"
Which had a ring inside of it
Then "Go sell the ring and pay for the taxes"

It was about the power of God
Miracles of God
Yet now since people worship money
And use Christ to get blessed
The only thing is left in this world
Are those people with money

Not the power of God
Miracles of God etc.
But only "money, money, money"
Which these people keep for themselves as their blessings
Living for the world
Loving this world
Worshiping the world
And using Christ
As a shield of protection
To live and be evil

To live only for this world
Not for God not for Christ
Not for anyone else
But only themselves
Yes sometimes not even for their own children.

This money itself can be a miracle to so many
Since many don't have much to eat
Nor a place to sleep
Starving and homeless
Is it for their sins?
You might simply
Ask or imply
To this my reply is
Well we all have sinned
We all have fallen short of glory
Only God is perfect

We don't have power to move a mountain
We don't have power
Or a grain of a muster seed of faith
The only thing we have left in this world is money
Which God blessed us with

Now we can live for this money
All our lives
We can live for this world all our lives
Yet in the end
We all have to pay the price
A price of our own demise
The price of eternal separation from God
Since we didn't love him nor others
But only ourselves

Selfishness breeds arrogance
And arrogance was the fall of a Lucifer
So the only god we will be with
Is the god of this world

Who is judged and overcome
Hell will be the place for us
To burn away forever and ever
In a like of fire
Lake of fire is a modern lake of lava
Look at the erupting volcanoes
Filled with lava and brimstone

It tells us that even a lake of fire exists
Yes even in this world
And it's called lava
Well that lava is a lake inside of a volcano
Sometimes when it erupts
It becomes like a slow moving river
A river of fire and brimstone

Now imagine yourself being immortal
And feeling it all for all eternity.
That is something to look forward to
For all those that live for themselves
And use Christ as a shield
To live and not give a damn about helping
Any one else

Bible says if your enemy is hungry feed him
If your enemy is thirsty give him something to drink
What does that tell us
It just tells us
Lake of lava here we come.
Yes the god of this world will be waiting for us
To burn forever together…
But the Creator that created all life
Will be laughing from the heavens.

Still it just means
Those that are able
Since not all are stable
If you ain't got
Then it's not your lot

My commentary on part of lyrics of this particular song

"they believe they could walk on the water
playin godsleep with the devils daughter
killed your son and might kill mine
but you don't mind"

I am amazed that who ever wrote this one in the band.
Is that smart.
I was wondering myself
what the hell is he talking about?

Anyways I'm not sure he knows himself.
yet I pondered and came to the conclusion
that words "playin godsleep with the devils daughter"
meen false believers playing with the false faith ,
false church etc.
and "killed your son and might kill mine"
is of course the Jews who killed Christ
and might kill any other who is like Christ.
also they represent a branch of faiths that
strayed away from the truth as well.
Since many don't believe in a Triune God
they look at Christ as a teacher
not as a Deity of God the Father.

Holy Trinity Forever

Mark V. Markov


I have no idea on what concept of God
This band believes in.
But I'm guessing at least two Deities
based on the lyrics.
Even though they are called helloween.

They are singing to God about life
And about his Son
It's such a tragedy that they called themselves helloween
Yet I guess you can worship God
Even with that name too.
When I say tragedy
I mean to say
From a purity Christ Like perspective
Anything that says hell
I would never touch
Let alone listen to or like

Yet in this case
Since they have so many positive uplifting melodies
And the coolest power chord rhythms
Along with many best beats and rhymes
I had to lay an ear
And be inspired by the positivitivity

Yet only positivity
Still hell is just something that I just can't accept.
Hence the problem lies with
This positive music being accepted in
(Christ Like) Christian households.

Yet just think how much power can be gained
Just if such great talent
Could just direct itself purely completely
Towards using power music
Solely for the power worship of God

I mean they made millions
Why not just sit back
And make a record
Of pure power music
Directed towards God in the styles of
Why, Lavdate Dominvm, Wake Up The Mountain,
Open Your Life, Where The Rain Grows, Power...

A power worship album in that style.
If you like I can definitely help you out with that one.
I actually wanna help with all the concepts in that style.
Just the catch is
That it has to be a under a different name.
No offense Weiki…

On this one forget about Charlie Bauerfeind
I know he is German and speaks German
But after looking at the back cover of bubbles go ape album
I'm just very surprised that you guys went back to him.

Those egg omelets on the eyes of people
I mean it seems like he wanted you to look like fools.
I'm sorry but that's how it looks
From the USA perspective.

And the last cover?
Well that one tells me
That he understands more
Prefers and likes
The other very secular bands
If you get my drift.

Mark V. Markov

1 Corinthians 4

The Ministry of Apostles

 1This is how one should regard us,
as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.
 2Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy.
3But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court.
 In fact, I do not even judge myself.
4For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted.
 It is the Lord who judges me. 5Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time,
 before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness
and will disclose the purposes of the heart.
Then each one will receive his commendation from God.
 6I have applied all these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit,
brothers, that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written,
that none of you may be puffed up in favor of one against another.
7For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive?
If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?
 8Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich!
Without us you have become kings! And would that you did reign,
so that we might share the rule with you!
9For I think that God has exhibited us apostles as last of all,
like men sentenced to death, because we have become a spectacle to the world,
to angels, and to men. 10We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are wise in Christ.
 We are weak, but you are strong.
You are held in honor, but we in disrepute.
11To the present hour we hunger and thirst,
we are poorly dressed and buffeted and homeless,
12and we labor, working with our own hands.
When reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure; 13when slandered, we entreat.
We have become, and are still, like the scum of the world, the refuse of all things.
 14I do not write these things to make you ashamed,
but to admonish you as my beloved children.
15For though you have countless guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers.
For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel.
16I urge you, then, be imitators of me.
17That is why I sent you Timothy, my beloved and faithful child in the Lord,
to remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach them everywhere in every church.
18Some are arrogant, as though I were not coming to you.
19But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills,
and I will find out not the talk of these arrogant people but their power.
20For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power.
21What do you wish?Shall I come to you with a rod, or with love in a spirit of gentleness?

Apostle just means sent by God...

Apostle is derived from the Greek word, pronounced ap-os-tol-os, which means messenger, or ambassador.
