"The First Resurrection"
The first time He appeared to me I heard of big revivals
I saw him Crucified With great Holy Ghost Power
I saw Him taking my place I went "Seeking Him"
It was for me and My sins He died Not just -- "The Man of The Hour"
I heard He was coming back I chased Him -- when He moved
I received the Holy Ghost He's fluid you see
I spoke in tongues - shouted and hollered He moves like the wind
But I lived in the flesh the most He's not stationary
I heard about a "Rapture" Now I'm crossing your doctrine
Jesus coming back again But you see -- "I Am Free'
I just got so darn excited To bloom "Where I was Planted"
I wanted to know when A thorn bush I would be
I read books -- heard tapes I gave up on religion
Some even told when And I failed doing works
But they were all wrong Then -- "Jesus Appeared"
He didn't come then But unlike at the first
Pre-trib Post-Trib I had been resurrected
The Mark Of The Beast From "The Tomb" within me
Scary fairy tale stories For I had died "In Christ Jesus"
And on them - I did feast Just trying to please
So confusing -- So stupid All I had left -- was hope
Is God out of control That He'd open my grave
Did He send these teachers That His Promise was true
And the teachers don't know And that me He would save
They're Walking in Circles He appeared out of nowhere
And arguing about time And began hugging me
Building bigger buildings A revival was happening
Just to leave them behind A revival in me
Now -- I'm not a genius My soul it was "Raptured"
But I did have a mind When He said -- "You're Home"
I saw three scheduled raptures I knew when He spoke it
Arrive not on time No more would I roam
Like lightning it flashed I found myself -- "In Christ Jesus"
Something entered my mind And -- "Christ Jesus In Me"
Instead of reading their books I had been resurrected
"Why don't You Read Mine" With "The Resurrection" in me
It's really not scary I don't know how He did it
And if you listen to Me But like the wind -- He came in
In -- Between The Lines He hovered over me
I'll show the truth to thee And -- "I was Born Again"
Oh Yeah -- I stumbled
More than I'd like to admit
But I was looking for Jesus
And religion -- wasn't it
