LAH – End of the Beginning!

Author: David Phelps

Background to the Hymn.
Just as we finished the post on the life we received by virtue of the death of Jesus Christ, I remembered someone had sent a song sometime last month to a whatsapp group I belong and the song blessed me so much.
We’ve heard so much about “The End” and we’ve also heard about “The beginning of the End”, now I was about to hear about the mystery behind the “End of the Beginning”.

Jesus’ death on the cross seemed to several as the end, little did they all know that this end, was only the beginning of life for all those who would accept and believe in Jesus!

The mystery behind the death and resurrection of Jesus on the cross has been hid from the wise but is being revealed in ‘this day’ and if the prince of this world knew this, he would not have crucified the King of Glory! Alas, it is too late. Jesus died and rose again, the cross has taken place and my victory has been secured; what looked like the end that dark night, was actually only the end of the beginning!

This song, though not a conventional kind of Hymn, has blessed me and I trust it would bless you too. Watch it below and feel free to download it to further enjoy, by clicking the links below.

Lyrics.
I was taking a trip on a plane the other day, just wishin’ that I could get out.
When the man next to me saw the book in my hand and asked me what it was about.
So I settled back in my seat. “A best-seller,” I said, “a hist’ry and a myst’ry in one.”
Then I opened up the book and began to read from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John…

He was born of a virgin one holy night in the little town of Bethlehem.
Angels gathered ’round Him underneath the star singing praises to the great I AM;

He walked on the water, healed The lame, and made the blind to see again.
And for the first time here on earth we learned that God could be a friend.
And though He never, ever did a single thing wrong, the angry crowd chose Him.
And then He walked down the road and died on the cross and
That was the end…of the beginning.”

“That’s not a new book, that’s a Bible,” he said, “And I’ve heard it all before.
I’ve tried religion, it’s shame and guilt, and I don’t need it anymore.
It’s superstition, made-up tales, just to help the weak to survive.”
“Let me read it again,” I said, “But listen closely. This is gonna change your life.”

“He was born of a virgin one holy night in the little town of Bethlehem.
Angels gathered ’round Him underneath the star singing praises to the great I AM.

He walked on the water, healed the lame, and made the blind to see again.
And for the first time here on earth we learned that God could be a friend.
And though He never, ever did a single thing wrong, the angry crowd chose Him.
And then He walked down the road and died on the cross and
That was the end…of the beginning.”

“The end of the beginning?” he said with a smile. “What more could there be? He’s dead. 🙈
You said they hung Him, put nails in His hands and a crown of thorns on His head.”
I said, “I’ll read it again, but this time there’s more and I believe that this is true:
His death wasn’t the end but the beginning of life, that’s completed in you.
Don’t you see, He did all this for you…”

“He was born of a virgin one holy night in the little town of Bethlehem.
All the angels singing praises to the great I AM.
He walked on the water, healed the lame, and made the blind to see.
And for the first time here on earth, did you know that God could be a friend?
And though He never, ever did a single thing wrong, He was the one the crowd chose.
And then He walked and He died, but three days later, three days later, three days later…

He rose! Three days later, He rose!

You see, He came, and He lived, and He died…
But that was the End of the Beginning.
