Back In The High Life Again

Music HighwayA little over 2,000 years ago, God had an important meeting of the minds. The Father, The Word and The Holy Spirit were making final preparations toward a great event to occur on earth. Here is their discourse:

God: Well, the appointed time now is upon us. What we have planned and agreed upon is now to happen.

The Word: Yes, I have greatly anticipated this moment!

The holy presence of the triune Godhead was noted by the heavenly hosts nearby who were able to listen in on the conversation. God then began talking to the Word as Father to Son.

The Father: You are going to be my Son. Are you ready?

The Word: I am.

imageThe Father: How about you, Spirit? Are you ready for the task I have given you?

The Holy Spirit: Are you kidding! I am more than excited about transplanting your Word to be your begotten Son – just as we planned! I am overjoyed for the two of you!

The Father (to the Son) : As you know, the glory you now have will be gone. You will have only me to look to. The Holy Spirit, of course, will be with you and later descend like a dove upon you.

The Word: I am ready. Your will be done, not mine.

The Father: You will be just a child for a few, short earth years. But even at a young age you will mature to fully know me and the work I have sent for you to do.

The Word: I am ready. When I come to realize again who you are I will always pray to You. I will always praise you. I will reveal you to those you have called. They will know of your love and joy for them. They will thereafter be praying to You.

The Father: As you are aware, you must go down and sacrifice yourself on their behalf. They have been anticipating a Savior for many years. Alas, they will not at first understand what is about to be fulfilled. It is about the eradication of sin and evil from all mankind that causes death.  I cannot underscore enough the importance of your mission, Son. And the Holy Spirit here will greatly be at work helping you.

(Both the Word and the Spirit looked at each other and nodded in unison and then gazed  in reverence toward the Father).

The Father: Man has suffered enough. Death is so horrible. The evil below is so unpleasant and abhorrent to look upon and continue to allow.

The Word: Yes, Father, and I will empathize in a human way their pain, their anguish, their darkness. I will personally deal with their sickness – physical, emotional and spiritual. Oh, there is so much ignorance and pain!

The Father: It will affect me deeply seeing you being offered as my sacrificial lamb to slaughter. But the reason you will finally be falsely accused of and murdered I will allow.

Everything you will read in the Scriptures as a man on earth  – all of the Scriptures – will point and affirm to you the sacrifice you have accepted. And soon, you will be back with me in heaven for a momentary season.

The Word: I will soon return to you with the glory I now have. I will be back in the high life again. Yes soon, Father, all the doors of heaven that were closed to man since the fall of Adam and Eve will be opened up again. I am the door and many will be brought to salvation! You will have children –  many of them! The world will change! And Your kingdom here in heaven will soon be on earth! There will be much joy!

The Father: Yes, Son, you will be back in the high life again. You will sit at my right hand until I return you back again into the world. I will let you know when.

The Holy Spirit: There is so much that will be accomplished! Wow!

The Word: All praise to You, Father!

The Father: Let us begin.

LYRICS:

It used to seem to me
That my life ran on too fast
And I had to take it slowly
Just to make the good parts last
But when you’re born to run
It’s so hard to just slow down
So don’t be surprised to see me
Back in that bright part of town

I’ll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
I’ll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched me once
Will smile and take me in

You used to be the best
To make life be life to me
And I hope that you’re still out there
And you’re like you used to be
We’ll have ourselves a time
And we’ll dance ’til the morning sun
And we’ll let the good times come in
And we won’t stop ’til we’re done

We’ll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
We’ll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched us once
Will smile and take us in

And we’ll drink and dance with one hand free
And have the world so easily
And oh we’ll be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

( – violin solo – )

We’ll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
We’ll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched us once
Will smile and take us in

And we’ll drink and dance with one hand free
And have the world so easily
And oh we’ll be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

( – mandolin solo to end – )
