Slow Train Coming

There is a stirring over me this song. There is a conference coming up next weekend and during the announcements at New Day Lloyd Rindels started talking a bout the Mirror with the Word conference featuring Francois du Toit (the author of the The Mirror Translation Bible). Lloyd said his prayer time had been hijacked the day before.  During his time with God he said he felt God said “that Zimmerman kid got it right.” For those of you who dont know it, Bob Dylan’s last name pre fame was Zimmerman. The song Slow Train Coming was coming to Lloyd. God was showing him that Francois du Toit was one of those cars on the train a coming. He is literally unknown but the message he is carrying is so important.  Grace is nothing new. But its relevance is so important.

I’m going to leave it at that for now.

“Slow Train”

Sometimes I feel so low-down and disgusted
Can’t help but wonder what’s happening to my companions
Are they lost or are they found, have they counted the cost it’ll take to bring down
All their earthly principles they’re gonna have to abandon ?

There’s slow, slow train coming up around the bend.

I had a woman down in Alabama
She was a backwoods girl, but she sure was realistic
She said, Boy, without a doubt, have to quit your mess and straighten out
You could die down here, be just another accident statistic

There’s slow, slow train coming up around the bend.

All that foreign oil controlling American soil
Look around you, it’s just bound to make you embarrassed
Sheiks walking around like kings, wearing fancy jewels and nose rings
Deciding America’s future from Amsterdam and to Paris

And there’s slow, slow train coming up around the bend.

Man’s ego is inflated, his laws are outdated, they don’t apply no more
You can’t rely no more to be standing around waiting

In the home of the brave, Jefferson turning over in his grave
Fools glorifying themselves, trying to manipulate Satan

And there’s slow, slow train coming up around the bend.

Big-time negotiators, false healers and woman haters
Masters of the bluff and masters of the proposition
But the enemy I see wears a cloak of decencyAll non-believers and men stealers talking in the name of religion

And there’s slow, there’s slow train coming up around the bend.

People starving and thirsting, grain elevators are bursting
Oh, you know it costs more to store the food than it do to give it
They say loose your inhibitions, follow your own ambitions
They talk about a life of brotherly love, show me someone who knows how to live it

There’s slow, slow train coming up around the bend.

Well, my baby went to Illinois with some bad-talking boy she could destroy
A real suicide case, but there was nothing I could do to stop it
I don’t care about economy, I don’t care about astronomy
But it’s sure do bother me to see my loved ones turning into puppets

There’s slow, slow train coming up around the bend.
