Nara

What Shall I Render To Jehovah – Tim Godfrey ft Travis Greene

(Lyrics and interpretation below)

שבת שלום

Shabbat Shalom = A Peaceful Sabbath

This song is partly in Igbo, the language of the Igbo people in Southeastern Nigeria. The Igbo title to this song is simply Nara, which means Receive my thanks. In English, the title of the song is What Shall I Render To Jehovah, but it is the same song. Igbo is very interesting. It is one of those rare languages you actually sing, because four words spelled exactly the same are only differentiated by the tone in which you say the word.

That question, what shall I render to Jehovah, is answered in God’s Holy Word:

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service” Romans 12:1

If you think to be the “Bride of Christ” (Isaiah 61:10; Isaiah 62:5) but don’t particularly want to yield yourself totally and completely to the Lord God; think again, for He accepts nothing less than complete surrender, just like a jealous, possessive husband. 

Don’t think so? Here’s the Word for it:

“For you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God” Exodus 34:14

The upside is you (if you will) can dwell in the “secret place of the Most High” and all of those named blessings in Psalms 91 (below) apply to you, yes, you! God makes no other deals, however, just this one (your commitments are in italics):

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; in Him will I trust. Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler and from the noisome pestilence (yes, COVID-19!). He shall cover thee with his feathers and under His wings shalt thou trust; His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, nor for the arrow that flieth by day, nor for the pestilence (yes, COVID-10) that walketh in darkness, nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side and ten thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, Who is my Refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation, there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague (yes, COVID-19) come nigh thy dwelling, for He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet – Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him. I will set him on high, because he hath known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him (yes, God Almighty will honor you!). With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation” Psalms 91

If you aren’t living under God’s “feathers,” with that measure of care, you haven’t surrendered ALL.

Some “Christians” want to make like they surrender all to the Lord, but He just chose not to heal them, not to deliver them, not to help them… Either that’s true, and the above Word of God is a lie, or some people aren’t meeting their obligations before the Lord and they want to make excuses. Here is the conclusion to that matter:

“God forbid, yes, let God be true, but every man a liar, as it is written, That you might be justified in your sayings and might overcome when you are judged” Romans 3:4

Psalms 91 includes God’s promises to His beloved – who surrender all. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar, no matter if he is a “pastor,” a “prophet,” an “apostle,” whoever he is, he is a liar if he makes excuses as to why he’s not receiving the promises outlined in Psalms 91. A few in this world know the absolute truth regarding all of God’s promises. Those few have surrendered ALL. You are invited to receive. Most will not, according to God’s Holy Word:

“If the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” 1 Peter 4:18

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to life, and few there be that find it” Matthew 7:14

“Few” will take the right path, but you are invited, if you will come and agree to the conditions, repentance and complete surrender. Where shall the sinner and unglodly appear? I can answer that. The Word tells us exactly where they will appear:

“Whoever was not found in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire” Revelation 20:15

Most people don’t believe in a literal hell anymore either, but there is one. I’ve seen it with my own eyes. I’ve seen many, many things that God has shown me. His Word is truth and light. Either you will abide in the truth of Him, or you will dwell in darkness. No man can take away from God’s Holy Word and get away with it. Judgment may be delayed for a season, but the axe will be laid:

“I testify unto every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book; and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the Holy City, and from the things which are written in this book” Revelation 22:18-19

Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior, unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate, having no conscience (Romans 1:21-32; Hebrews 6:4-6). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.

“The Spirit and the bride say, Come; and let him who hears say, Come; and let him that is athirst come, and whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely” Revelation 22:17
