Smith, Michael W. - Ancient Words Lyrics

Holy words long preserved
For our walk in this world
They resound with God's own heart
Oh, let the ancient words impart

Words of Life, words of Hope
Give us strength, help us cope
In this world, where e'er we roam
Ancient words will guide us home

Ancient words ever true
Changing me and changing you
We have come with open hearts
Oh, let the ancient words impart

Holy words of our Faith
Handed down to this age
Came to us through sacrifice
Oh heed the faithful words of Christ

Holy words long preserved
For our walk in this world
They resound with God's own heart
Oh let the ancient words impart

[Chorus x4:]
Ancient words ever true
Changing me and changing you
We have come with open hearts
Oh, let the ancient words impart

We have come with open hearts
Oh, let the ancient words impart

    Beloved Michael W. Smith Wonder while reading the Word of GOD - I thought I share this psalm with you because THE PSALMS happens to be my favorite book in the Bible✝️
    O LORD, you have searched me and known me, you know my sitting down and my rising up, you understand my thoughts afar off, you comprehend my path and my lying down and are aquatinted with all my ways for there is not a word on my tongue But behold O LORD, You know it altogether, you have hedged me behind and before And laid Your ✋
    Upon me, such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    It is high I cannot attain it!
    (Psalm 139:1-6)❤️

    The Holy Bible is “a word about the Word of God” that only describes the will of God. The Holy Bible is inspired by God, it contains a rational attestation about events that were seen, experienced, and learned according to the size of each person’s receptivity, but it can not be interpreted outside the Personal EXPERIENCE of the Saints who wrote it that got to know the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God. The final and up most form of Revelation which is PENTECOST, lead the Apostles to -Total Truth- and this is an event that continuously takes place during the entire history of the Church, and is given as a Gift to those that succeeded in various degrees of perfection, beginning from enlightenment to theosis. The Experience in Pentecost exceeds any words, pictures, the body, and the mind, and cannot possibly be expressed by words. This is why the Pentecost Experience is included in the Holy Bible, but at the same time it exceeds it, for the Scriptures cannot possibly represent the Pentecost Revelation of the Glory of God”. The scripts of the Holy Bible are not literary or philosophical they are ECCLESIASTIC. The Church is the one that wrote the scripts and it is only the Church alone that can interpret them correctly. Holy Baptism is talked about in the holy Bible but the Holy Bible does not tell you how. Becoming Holy is described in the holy Bile nbut it does not tell hoe to become Holy. Only the Church that wrote it as an Ecclesiastic book can tell you how. He Holy Spirit delivered to the Apostles 85 Holy Apstolic canons that include the WILL of God for the Salvation of man!
    Cannons of the Apostles
    In the absence of the therapy (from sin) of the Church life after death condition remain the same as before the coming of Lord Jesus and the creation of His Church where there was n hope no salvation!
    Spiritual life (according to the experience of the Saints) is not the learning of spiritual truths, but the union and relationship (Sainthood) that man was made to have with the Holy Spirit.
      If the Salvation does not include the return to the presence of God...what good is it?

    The vision of Divine Light
    This is what Lord Jesus told St. Symeon when He became worthy to His presence in His Divine Light.
    “It is me, God, Who became man for you; and behold that I have made you, as you see, and shall make you god”.

    Ierotheos Metropolitan of Naupaktos about Greek Orthodox Baptism

    “Through the "rite of birth in God", holy baptism, man's nous (mind) is illuminated, freed from slavery to sin and the devil, and is united with God.
    The word Salvation means "salvation from death" and the word "death" means the eternal separation of man from God!

    Understanding the Orthodox Christian Faith
    God bless
