I Mean Every Word I Say

Music | Adam Again
by Dewey Compton

I'm stepping into the shower and this thought enters my mind: One of the activities in Heaven will be seeing all the people who touched our life through Jesus on Earth and those we touched through Jesus and the impact across the globe and universe. It's going to blow our minds. That's probably why we are getting new bodies and minds.
Just a quick thought.

I'm showering and Alexia plays my music. Then a song comes on from a band many of you have probably never heard. Any Adam Again fans out there?

I remember my first encounter with them. I was with Carl Melton and we went to Knott's Berry Farm Jubilee which was a huge night of concerts of Christian Bands. It had to have been December 31, 1989.

We met Gene Eugene at their table. He was so down to earth and friendly. He gave Carl and me a free tee Shirt. It was a white Tee with a simple black Tree and Adam Again under it based on the song Treehouse. (That wasn't the song that came on though although it is pretty prophetic for our time right now. Check out Treehouse on your own.)

But the song that came on was from the album Ten Songs by Adam Again
Every Word I Say
Everybody is talking, many words are spoken
And they're telling me things they think I wanna hear
Enough is enough it's time to get serious
If you tell me you love me
Well it better be the truth
I mean every word I say
Well I know that the things that we say are sometimes automatic
We just follow a script like a character reading his lines
Enough is enough it's time to get serious
And if you talk about love
Know the meaning of the word
I mean every word I say
From my heart to my head
From my head to my mouth
Can the words cross the air between us
Oh, and be true?
I mean every word I say

I'm listening and thinking as I shower. This is relevant to today. But I felt like God was wanting me to focus on the positive, not the reaction to this song trying to get people to love better. What if when we simply focus on Love and mean every word we say in Love and really know what it means, it WILL change the world. 

We may not see the effects of it, but it will change the world because love never fails.

Loving people meaningfully will stick. It will change their lives and they will change other's lives and so on and so on.

I am proof of this from that one encounter with Gene Eugene back in 1989. I love Adam Again's music and their message. It changed me for good. Hearing this song again 31 years later means a lot. It actually means more now as I have grown and matured as a believer thana it did then. 

This is what the prophetic is all about. It's simply the voice of God speaking presently about the present and the future. He does it all the time in my life.

My thought shifted to a time when Carl and I did a 50-mile bike ride in Mexico from Rosarita Beach to Ensanada. That was probably in 1991. After the ride, we went to a restaurant to eat. We noticed they were playing Christian Music. I felt like the Lord wanted me to give the owner a CD. So I gave them Riki Michele's new release "Big Big Town" because it fit the style there...I think. That was 31 years ago.

Look At This, Look At That by Riki Michele on Amazon Music ...

So, I guess we won't know really the impacts, we have on each other and others have on us until we get to Heaven. I hope that this album spoke to some people and lives were changed at this restaurant in Ensanada, Mexico. Love always hopes right? 

Gene Eugene graduated to Heaven unexpectedly in 2000. He left behind a voice, a message, many friends and family who loves him and a love that impacted my life. If you are looking for some good ole late 80's 90's Christian music, look up Adam Again, and Riki Michele, and 77's, and The Choir, and LSU, Rez Band...etc. 

I hope I said every word I mean, and I mean every word I said.

My First Blog Post

My First Blog Post Wow, that took some time to set up. But it looks like I am in and ready to write. I have been writing various formats for years, but not sharing them with really anybody but a few friends. So the purpose really of setting up a blog is two-fold: I am participating in the Dan McGuire Blog Challenge through the Writers of Kern group. I'm taking the challenge to kickstart getting my writing out there. Second, I hope my writings can bring encouragement, enlightenment, teach, and promote love in the lives of anybody who reads my writings. So, what are my X Files, Writings, and Stories? X Files These are files I have collected mostly about myself. Words spoken to me by the Spirit of God, and People. These can be in the form of other writings, voices, dreams, visions, and prophecy. These are personal to me, but I may share some from time to time. Writings - These are my processes from which I will attempt to put into the words you will read that i
  Shooting Blanks - Rest as a Weapon By Dewey Compton February, 2019 blog Have you ever considered the possibility that our adversaries are shooting blanks when they attack us? What if when we believe their lie, we re-arm the lie making it a damaging weapon? But Jesus “disarmed” the enemy.   (“Then Jesus made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power to accuse us. And by the power of the cross, Jesus led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph. He was not their prisoner; they were his! Colossians 2:15 TPT”) I asked the Holy Spirit about this one day. Obviously, the enemy is doing damage on the Earth. How could he be disarmed? Then this thought came to my mind: “He is shooting blanks.”   Immediately I was taken back in my memory to an experience I had while spending a week with the US Marines in San Diego, CA. We were standing by a tank listening to a weapons speciali

Mostly Dead is Slightly Alive

The Art of Dying by Dewey Compton "The old You is dead already. Embrace the real you by ignoring the old you." So what's on my mind?   Death! Here is another one of my favorite movies - The Princess Bride. I was in the shower this morning and listening to music and for some reason, I started conversing in my mind with HS about the beauty and freedom of death. Death can be looked at in many different ways and most people look at the negative side.  I find this topic very fascinating and more discussion needed today. Let me explain.  I remember in science class that a seed must go into the ground, die and then a completely new thing rises out of the ground called a plant. This plant is entirely different from the seed. One had to die in order for the other to live. This is the same with us.  Old things in us must die in order for us to truly live. Now for many, it happened when they first became a believer in Jesus. We died to our old self, o
