We know the Kingdom of Heaven exists for eternity, but we don’t know much about it yet. However, that hasn’t stopped us from trying to figure our who will be there – or who won’t be there. Maybe a better use of our time and energy would be getting to know the Eternal King and living in such a way that others would want to know Him as well.
Ezekiel 11:14-21; Matthew 15:24, 23:13; John 10:11-18; Galatians 3:28-29; Ephesians 2:11-22; 1 John 3:1-3
Music is an expression of our hearts – of our experiences, joys, sorrows, hopes, dreams, and all that makes us who we are. Rut Banks understands this very well. That’s why her music is so fresh and deep. If we want to know who she is, we start with her songs, because her life story is right there in what she sings!
In this three-part conversation, Rut shares with us what has shaped her life story. Her roots go deep, from Nashville, where she lives with her husband Michael and their children, to St. Louis where she grew up, and back through time and space to Africa, where her Hebraic ancestors faithfully carried the covenant knowledge of their identity in Yah.
This is a podcast about identity, which is the story we hear in song from Rut and from Mason Clover. As Barry Phillips and David Jones explain, it is from this identity that we become channels of Living Water.
Do we believe the gifts and callings of God are irrevocable? If we do, then we should have no problem believing that promises and blessings He has bestowed from time immemorial are still in effect. But what does that mean in connection with reconciling estranged parts of our Creator’s Covenant family?
