Question:

Why do we not hear more people proclaiming this message today?

Answer:

Next time you go to church, have a good look at the classic songs of the faith in your hymnal. Also, if your church uses an overhead projector, note carefully the words of many choruses now being published by today's younger generation. "Ancient of Days" is good for starters. Also, don't forget to review all the verses to well-known Christmas carols, as well as Handel's "Messiah." If our "free will" is the bottomline factor determining our destiny, why aren't there any songs about it? Truth liberates the heart to worship, doesn't it?

According to Eugene Peterson, the entire book of Revelation is a hymn of worship, sung by many of the early church (see The Message translation by Eugene Peterson). Obviously, much of today's church cannot sing all of it because they don't understand God's judgments as the first century Christians did. Review Psalm 96, bearing in mind that the only Scriptures available to the earliest Christians came from the Old Testament. And remember that the New Testament finds its roots in Moses and the prophets.
