The Love Revival!?!? 1985. Philadelphia. Tallahatchie Bridge. Part 1.

From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher

To: Philadelphia

. In about 1985 I was awakened out of a sound sleep at 2:45 AM, by a voice that was singing. at first I thought it was a choir of angels. then I realized that it was the sound of a waterfall.

. I jumped up and literally ran to get pen and paper…I scribbled the words down as fast as I heard them. I went to the piano and played and sang the song.

. when I went to church the next morning, I began to sing the song. the singers and musicians immediately fell into it with me, and we sang it like we had known it forever.

. we sang it coming and going. we sang it on all occasions. we sang it loud and soft, fast and slow. we sang it always. it was our song.

. we were known for our love for one another.

. through the years I saw large auditoriums, filled with people, jumping and leaping and praising God with us as we all sang the song.

. these are the words to the song:

. Won’t you come in all you brothers and sisters, and let Him be your Guide?

You’ll just be sittin’ at the feet of Jesus, where there’s no haughtiness or pride.

In His Presence there is fullness of Joy. At His right hand there are pleasures forever more.

So put your hand in the hand of the Saviour, and come inside.

. Chorus: To that Love Revival, it’s the Holy Ghost Revival, it’s the endtime Revival, and it’s rollin’ in like the tide. It’s the Love Revival, it’s the Holy Ghost Revival, it’s the endtime Revival, won’t you come inside?

. Won’t you come in all you husbands and wives, and let Him be your Peace?

There’s no unity except in Jesus, He’s the only place to find release,

From all the years of suffering and pain, by His Blood He’ll wash away that stain,

And make you one, and whole in Jesus name, Won’t you come inside?

Chorus.

. Won’t you come in all you mothers and fathers, and let Him be your Guide?

He will walk every step of the way with you, He’ll be steppin’ right by your side,

He’ll help you train up your son and your daughter, He’ll keep them safe from this terrible slaughter,

So put your hand in the hand of the Saviour, and come inside.

Chorus.

. Won’t you come in all you daughters of Zion, and let Him be your Truth?

He’ll wrap you up with cords of Love and bands of Mercy, you’ll be just like Naomi and Ruth.

No longer a kisser, but a cleaver, you’ll Love your sister and then you’ll never leave her.

And then the world will know that Jesus is their Saviour when we come inside.

Chorus.

. in about 1995, on the Sabbath of Noah, I heard a song in the night. I will always be sorry to say that I was so tired, and the fire had gone out, no electricity back then, the room was so cold, I didn’t get up to write all the verses down. this was the chorus of the song in part:

. The Process of Love must go on until complete. The Process of Love will bring you to His feet. The Process of Love. The Process of Love.

. the verses told, that  the Lord would bring this process. if this process was refused, there would come judgement.

. 1John 4: 16b-18. God is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgement: because as He is, so are we in the world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out all fear: fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love.

. these verses are talking about the fear of judgement. please read it in the Amplified.

. through much suffering and heartbreak, I have realized that we misunderstood the song.

. this is my understanding now, after seeking the Lord for over 20 years about this:

. we thought this song was talking about our love for one another.

. we had not yet learned that human love is flesh. like every other human thing is.

. human love causes people to jump off the Tallahatchie bridge. people kill each other, and kill themselves and do terrible things to each other all because of human love. human love is flesh. like every other human thing is.

. we had not yet learned that human love can turn to hate in a split second, if that human love is hurt, or seemingly forsaken, or rejected, or left, or disappointed.

. we had not learned yet, that verse one had set the truth of the song…

. to be continued…

  1. The sound of a waterfall. That is so interesting… the voice of many waters. I hear these kind of things within the the sounds of jet turbines within a plane, a fan, or the hum of the automobile tires on a long trip. I’ve written many a song in my head coming from these kinds of sounds – the wheel within a wheel effect.
    Speaking of choirs of angels. We were coming home from a wedding. It was at least an 8 hour trip back, and we were driving. We left at about 10 PM and drove a few hours. I could hear one of these songs in my head as I listened to the hum of the tires on the pavement for hundreds of miles. A particular relative noticing how late we’d left was praying for us.
    Around 2 AM I couldn’t hold my eyes open any longer and pulled off to get a room. A fair ways over the roof of the Hotel was a choir of angels singing… “The Heavens are happy that you made it.”
