We all came streaming out of our respective cities to converge on an oasis in the Texas desert. A band of Psalmists and Poets, armed only with our instruments and a sense that we were being invited to peek behind the natural veil into the realm of God and Angels. Kevin Prosch, a spiritual father for many modern minstrels, had invited the Burn 24-7 crew to come to his world class studio for a live recording project. From August 17-18 we let the tape roll for 24 hours… we never expected this! Isaiah tells us that “…those who wait on the Lord… will mount up with wings like the eagle.” So wait is exactly what we did. Every Psalmist is jealous for those sacred moments when the one playing the instrument becomes the instrument that is being played. It is a gift like no other to be suspended in a place between heaven and earth, to be a gate from which Heaven can invade earth. Just as the sound from David’s harp drove back the darkness covering King Saul, we dreamed of a sound that would roll back the darkness covering our cities and even the nations.
As the hours passed it became evident that God had been anticipating this event far more than we had. His heart became almost tangible to many of us as we lingered in His Presence. Songs of Deliverance, Intimacy, War & Victory, Joy & Struggle… were poured out through the musicians and singers by the Holy Spirit. We were Burning… He was Burning… It was Beautiful!
One major objective of this project was to create as much space as possible for the Holy Spirit to inspire the musicians. Much of what you will hear is the sounds and songs captured during those inspired moments. Our hope and prayer is that the anointing of God’s Presence will translate through the recording to connect your heart to His heart. We pray that these songs & sounds cause you to Burn with Holy Fire and devotion for the Living God, that you would offer up a cry of worship from your spirit calling for the Holy One to move and shake in our nation. Burn 24-7 holds to the belief that the “Sound” is mightier than the “sword”. Both Gideon and Jehoshophat faced the enemy’s sword and overwhelming odds in their day. In their humility and desperation they sought the Lord. God did not deliver them from the sword with the sword, but rather with a sound of worship that released the armies of Heaven to utterly destroy the enemy. Today as was then, the battle is the Lords. As our generation flounders to find its’ meaning and purpose outside of Christ, we are asking God for a voice to speak truth to culture once again. We are asking for a Sound that would cut like a sword through the long black veil covering our nation that men and women would again call on the Name of Jesus and be saved. Our God is an all consuming fire. Join us as we draw near to Him and Burn for all eternity!
