In For The Kill

 Hello again folks! If you've followed and read this blog down the years you'll doubtless be aware that I'm a huge fan of the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) and their particular genre of music, as my other site elobeatlesforever (elobf) will attest. There have been regular crossover between my faith in the LORD Jesus Christ and my musical preferences, in particular with former ELO member, Pastor and accomplished singer/songwriter Dave Scott-Morgan. You can therefore imagine my surprise when the expanded edition of the album "Balance Of Power" came out in 2007, just a year before this blog began, having been originally released in 1986.

Apart from a totally new version of a song entitled "Heaven Only Knows" that included part of The Lord's Prayer, the CD included a previously unreleased track "In For The Kill" (see lyrics and video below). As I've often said and written, not all conspiracies are theories so you can imagine my surprise at what was new territory for Jeff Lynne's lyrics mentioning deals in dark rooms and sharing out land, something the Bible foretells in the present last days. The Books of Daniel and Revelation come to mind as does Joel 3:2. This is a bit of a departure from my usual posts but please consider having a read and/or listen if you are so minded ...

Listen to the money talk, listen to it scream,
Only lots of paper but it haunts them in their dreams,
Doesn't matter who they are, doesn't matter where,
Some people can't get enough that is their only care,
Going in for the kill, in for the kill,
In for the kill, in for the slaughter,
In for the thrill of the power game,
In for the kill, in for the finish,
They've got to win it's the only way,
Sitting in a darkened room,
Sharing out the land,
Someone holds a document and smiles as they shake hands,
Everywhere you wander, wander where you will,
Someone's making deals and going in for the kill.
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Real Bereans (Acts 17:11) are truly needed, watchmen must WARN, evangelists must COMPEL, do not be DECEIVED and WATCH that PERIPHERY!

God bless you ... KJS ... 6th October 2020
