Pressing Into the Kingdom
by Timothy Brindle

Album: Killing Sin

Verse 1:
Christ rescued Tim by His death for men
I accept Him in- I once slept in sin
Yes I'm now His resurrected kin
But the Christian race is starting so let's begin
What a hectic thing I'm stepping in
A plethora of men and women expect to win
Trying to cross the border like a Mexican
But the kingdom doors are closing let's be pressing in
It's no a competition to conquer Christians
We help each other get across the finish line
But those who turn back get killed when they halt
And turn into a pillar of salt
But I thought salvation's through faith alone?
Yes, but this faith is shown by those who make it home
Because Christ words are clear
Those who are saved endure to the end and persevere
The pilgrimage is through the wilderness
And I must kill my own sin and filthiness
I see the grime that's within I'm despising my sin
To see the King's face is the prize at the end
Because my portion is my Lord and my Father
I brought nothing with me but my Sword and my Armor
And I brought a pocket full of manna
And Christ righteousness I'm rocking as my banner
He paved the way exact and gave His map
To help me stay away from Satan's traps
Plus He gave me His Spirit to guide me
When I'm weary and tired His Spirit revives me
I realized that something drastic has happened
That shapes my attractions and fashions my actions
I died with Christ and rose with Him
So now I have dominion over sin
At first I ran great over landscapes
Because I can't wait to see the Lamb's face
Daily refreshed on new supplies of manna
With my Sword I'm killing lies and slander
I see wolves in sheep's clothes
I was told that these foes are greedy and cold as Pete Rose
I avoided the pack
But some of my boys were attacked and destroyed by the trap
I soon fell into a swamp of slime
At the sight of my sin I almost lost my mind
And started spitting up at the sickening stuff
It was the sin that easily trips me up
These slithery cords started bringing me towards
The bottom of the swamp I was swinging sword

To slice them off of me
Now I feel trife and sloppy see and this life's exhausting me
So I ran to a mountain of Love
And dove head first in it's the fountain of blood
After being renewed and cleansed
I realized that it's better to run with a crew of friends
Plus I realize I'm my worst enemy
It's my own sinful nature that hinders me
On top of solid rock I'm running again
And not on soggy slop I'm shunning my sin.

This is the fight of my life I sure can't afford to be slipping

Verse 2:
I then passed by the city of destruction
And I seen how it's wicked and disgusting
Full of wicked worldliness
And images of pretty girlies hips and jiggy pearly wrist
When I passed there block I was asked to stop
But I had to say I'd rather not
I was slapped and socked as the laughing stock
But I tried to warn them, God's wrath is hot!
But they abused this Christian they refused to listen
They wouldn't choose the good news of the crucifixion
This city was full of pagans bragging
And its ruler was this huge flaming dragon
But this one cat asked for the Messiah
So I grabbed his hand and snatched him from the fire
But then this girl she stopped and gave up
She loved the world more than the God of Jacob
I must reset my pace for the rest of this hectic race
So I shed some extra weight
And kept my eyes on Christ fixed on Him
So I wouldn't slip in sin and trip again
But I took my eyes off Christ and tripped and stumbled
Down this cliff I crumbled I ripped my bundle
Plus my hand is cut my pants are stuck
Now I've fallen and I can't get up
I see the world's tyrant economy sponsored
It was this giant pornography monster
It grabbed my legs I was stabbed with pegs
So I had to pray for a path to escape
Just then rushed in a crew of brethren
They rescued me from the poo I stepped in
Forget a jar of scope a bar of soap
I washed in the blood of the Lamb of God to soak
I seen my weakness now my strength is crushed
So Christ became my crutch, my strength, my trust
Jesus is my treasure but He feels so far away in this dry desert
I know I must murder my sin and endure to the end
But now I'm thirsting for Him
And I'm so anxious so the Spirit led me to an oasis my soul craves this
I drank from joyful springs
To rest from my toil to sing to the anointed King
It renewed my hope in the open tomb
But then I see the kingdom doors they're closing soon
I must be relentless to rush to the entrance
Along with brothers who trust in repentance
But there's not a lot who are soldiers
Who run with their cross on top of their shoulders
By my road map I'm soon reminded
The gate is narrow and there's a few that find it
And those who do don't dilly dally in
They're really rowdy men who kill and battle sin
But at the last stretch the porn monster
Returned to tempt me to be a hormonger
So with my Sword I hacked it to pieces
Because I'm way more attracted to Jesus
Now I enter the gates ending this race
Jesus my Hope and His Splendor awaits
And though I'm pressing in detesting sin
It's His blood and righteousness that gets me in
I'm now ready to see His majesty
It's the King of Glory!! I'm screaming happily
As I bask in His presence perfect in pleasure
I'll worship forever with gladness and reverence
Wondering what's to come, and after a ten thousand years it's as if it's just begun
Wondering what's to come, and after a million years it's as if it's just begun.
