The Battle for Everyone’s Heart [song video]

Posted on Updated on

Living-Room Video #73, “The Battle for Everyone’s Heart”. This is a saga in folk-style which is based on the material in the Book of Revelation, chapters 12 & 13, in which the whole panoply of time is laid out – past, present, & future in a prophetic tour de force. The battle for everyone’s heart is a battle between light and darkness, good and evil. I hope the song resonates. Soon I will write a commentary on those two chapters in the Book of Revelation (12 &13), which were written in a cave on the Greek island of Πάτμος. [See below for lyrics and more details].

Of course, there were no chapter numbers in the original manuscript, so what we call chapter 12 simply morphs into what we call chapter 13. The span of that section is stunning, ranging from the original fall of angels (corresponding to two lines in the song, “So that dragon he dragged off one third of the stars, and he threw them down to the earth”), through the birth, death and ascension of the Christ, the persecution and protection of the ekklesia, to the revealing of the Antichrist as “the beast” empowered by the dragon (Satan) and the “number of man” being six-hundred and sixty-six. I would love to explain all this in a commentary. We can so easily see where we are up to in the prophetic process. So, after I have completed and presented Letters from the Cabin #1: “Medycul Dick-Taturship — The Purpose Behind the Pandem…onium”, I will begin work on Letters from the Cabin #2: “Stars, a Dragon, a Woman, and a Beast — The Vision of Revelation”. Here are the lyrics of the song:

Now the dragon was once a glorious star,
but his pride made him ripe for a fall.
So from here to heaven, he furrowed a scar;
on his belly now he has to crawl.
His sole desire is to rule the world
through a kingdom with him at the head.
Against the saints his arrows are hurled,
and he won’t rest — no he’ll never rest
until those saints are all dead.

So that dragon he dragged off one third of the stars,
and he threw them down to the earth.
And then he tried to position himself
where a woman was poised to give birth.
His aim was always to smite her Son,
for he knew from predictions of old
that by this Man he would be undone,
and would be destroyed — oh he’ll be destroyed
exactly as had been foretold.

[Refrain]
War in heaven and war on earth —
it’s happened here right from the start;
and still it goes on right up to this day —
ancient interplay in the fray of
the battle for everyone’s heart.

But the Child grew up to be a great Man;
there are books of His words and His deeds.
And the dragon (unaware of the scope of God’s plan)
still continued to sow his dark seeds.
But when that Man reached the age thirty-three
that dragon then threw his best stone
when he stirred up the world to kill off the Man
who was then taken up — taken up and then
He ascended to His rightful throne.

In the heavens, a terrible battle had raged
with the dragon at the head of his kind.
Against the archangel Michael he waged;
with the dark and light angels entwined.
But the dragon and his archons were thrown to the earth;
they could no more in heaven be found.
So now they vent fury for all that they’re worth:
and now you’ve no excuse — no excuse, for you know
just why such chaos abounds.

[Refrain]
War in heaven and war on earth —
it’s happened here right from the start;
and still it goes on right up to this day —
ancient interplay in the fray of
the battle for everyone’s heart.

Now while I have been recounting this tale,
you may have been wondering who
the dragon could be when you lift up the veil
and why he attempted this coup.
His names are known, though some ridicule
through ignorance and disbelief.
The devil, or Satan, is not just a ghoul
like you see on the screen; he is real, and he’s been
a liar from the start and a thief.

So all of the chaos around you today
is caused by the dragon’s desire
to stir up revulsion ‘gainst God — disarray.
To this end, all his lackeys conspire
to build up one ‘kingdom’ across this sphere
with a ‘beast’ being worshipped as “Lord”,
empowered by the dragon as puppeteer
he will be revered — by all will be feared,
and the Lie will be loved by the hordes.

[Refrain]
War in heaven and war on earth —
it’s happened here right from the start;
and still it goes on right up to this day —
ancient interplay in the fray of
the battle for everyone’s heart.

So now we have come to the end of this song
which spans the whole curtain of time.
For this world is a stage on which all became wrong
on the way to a new paradigm.
We are here so we learn that we have to submit
to the fact that we don’t act alone.
For the death of that Child about whom I have writ
has carved out the way if we’ll join Him today.
Soon the dragon will be overthrown!
