New song “My Father has many mansions”


A new song that the LORD inspired me to write when recently questioned about who the real Yeshua (Jesus) is, who He tells us He is and how we can truly love Him.

The only part that isn’t scripture was inspired by CS Lewis in “Mere Christianity” when he challenges the reader to decide whether Jesus was a liar, lunatic or LORD (extract from this book included after lyrics)

My Father has many mansions

John 14:2
My Father has many mansions
And if not I would have told you
So I go to prepare a place for you

Who does the world say I am
Who does the world say I am
Am I a liar, am I a lunatic, or am I LORD

John 14:6
I am the way
I am the Truth
I am the LIFE
And no one comes to the Father
And no one comes to the Father except through me

John 14:21
He who keeps my commands and guards them
It is he who loves me
And he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father
And I shall love him and manifest Myself to him

CHORUS

John 14:27
Bridge
Peace I leave with you
My peace I give to you
Do not give to you as the world gives
Do not let your heart be troubled nor let it be afraid

C.S. Lewis described the inherent foolishness of claiming Christ as nothing more than a good teacher in his book Mere Christianity. He wrote:

“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: “I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God.” That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronising nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to…..”
