It's Time

Story

I wrote this song while in Guatemala. God spoke to my heart about the condition of the church in the USA.  In a time when so many believe we are in Revival, we are actually in a spiritual slumber.  God has a great purpose for us at this time in history. It’s time for us to wake from our slumber and fulfill our divine destiny!  Eph. 5:14  “Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.”

Lyrics

While the church sleeps the devil gains some ground
While the church is dreaming the devil burns your town
 
CHORUS  -  It’s time for the church to arise
It’s time for the church to come alive
It’s time for the church to be like the Bride of Christ
His glorious expression of love
 
We are in the world but not of it Jesus said
To live for Christ we must see our old lives as dead
 
Awake oh sleeper arise from the dead
The Spirit will do in you what Jesus said
Many Christians say I don’t feel led
To do the things that Jesus already said
 
Lost souls they’ll pay the price
Maybe more would be saved if we’d sacrifice
For the sake of the gospel
we must count our own lives as dead
