Words shouldn’t scare you

“When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up..”

Let’s not fear words and labels, let’s understand what they truly mean.
Bob Dylan wrote in his song “When you gonna wake up”..

“God don’t make promises that He don’t keep.
You got some big dreams baby, but in order to dream you gotta still be asleep.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up.
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

Counterfeited philosophies have polluted all of your thoughts.
Karl Marx has got ya by the throat, Henry Kissinger’s got you tied up in knots.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up.
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

You got innocent men in jail, your insane asylums are filled.
You got unrighteous doctors dealing drugs that’ll never cure your ills.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up.
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

You got men who can’t hold their peace and woman who can’t control their tongues.
The rich seduce the poor and the old are seduced by the young.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up.
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

Adulterers in churches and pornography in the schools.
You got gangsters in power and lawbreakers making rules.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up.
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

Spiritual advisors and gurus to guide your every move.
Instant inner peace and every step you take has got to be approved.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up.
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain ?

Do you ever wonder just what God requires ?
You think He’s just an errand boy to satisfy your wandering desires.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up.
When you gonna wake up and strengthen the things that remain ?You can’t take it with you and you know that it’s too worthless to be sold.
They tell you, ‘Time is money’ as if your life was worth its weight in gold.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up.
When you gonna wake up and strengthen the things that remain ?There’s a man up on a cross and He’s been crucified for you.
Believe in His power that’s about all you got to do.

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up.
When you gonna wake up and strengthen the things that remain ?”
