Recently my husband and I went to The Newsboys United tour. It was one of the places we went for our 25th anniversary. We don’t always go VIP, but this time we did. What a great experience we had.
One highlight was being in the question and answer session with hundreds of other people. Every time someone got up and ask a question they also gave a testimony on how their life was changed or touched by the Newsboys music and by their daily walk with this Lord.
Music can be a powerful thing. But music with no anointing is just music. The Newsboys United Tour is more than just music. The Band truly plays for The Lord. They are very humble and thankful for what God has done in their lives.
One of the songs that still is in my head each morning when I awake is “The Cross Has The Final Word”. They started the song out with a video of Billy Graham. He talked about The Cross and how cruel it was of all punishments. How Jesus was made fun of, mocked, beaten, and so much more. How through Jesus we can have forgiveness of sin. He could have come down off the Cross at any moment. But He stayed there for everyone. He loves you. Only through Jesus is there any hope & forgiveness of sin. Many say is there any hope for me, the drunk, prostitute, robbers, murders, people who have done evil things privately and corporately. Is there any hope for you and I? The Cross is the only way!!!!
Then the Newsboys came out and did their song. What a powerful moment. We used our cell phone and video taped it. May this video move you to a respose to Jesus and what He did at the Cross. The Cross surely has the final word!!! You can be set free today. Your life can be changed. You can be forgive. Surrender to Jesus and what He did for you in LOVE….
I hear about a lot of farewell tours but this one has me thinking a lot about life. My husband & I have had the privilege of meeting Third Day. Third Day has been around 25 years. My Husband & I are celebrating our 25th Anniversary this year. We are doing our own tour this year to celebrate our 25 yrs. It’s not final tour but it is a kick off for our next assignment from the Lord. Just like Third Day they too will have new adventures for God in their lives.
It was such a blessing for us to go to see Third Day at many concerts. The experience was more than just watch & listening to music. Third Day reaches out to those who have not received Christ & causes those who do know Christ to go deeper in their walk. They spark revival and fire in your soul.
God has used this band to bring liberty & freedom to many. Even though this is called a farewell tour, I think just like their name says, Yes it is the Third Day & Sunday is here. This is a new beginning for them and a new chapter in their lives. We will continue to pray for them and for God to continue to use them mightily in their new season of life.
So make plans today to join them in this tribute to their fans. Below is a link to more information and some live concerts.
This was one of my favorite times:

Angie and I really enjoyed a very special concert at Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg VA that marked the release of Charles Billingsleys new recording “Right Here”.. More than entertainment, more than a show, more than a mere concert; this night was a worship experience that crossed all generational lines and drew believers into the very presence of Jesus.. We work with alot of artists in alot of venues and I can honestly say that I have rarely sensed the moving of the Holy Spirit as strong and powerful as we did on March 6th at this event.. You can really tell that the team there are people of prayer. God showed up!!
Watching Charles live is a blessing in itself. His vocal range is truly amazing and the connection with the audience is most powerful… If there is one thing I can say about brother Charles it is that he has a real gift and passion to lead people into the presence of God and my wife and I both said after the concert; we really did not see Charles Billingsley or TRBC as wonderful as they are, We Saw Jesus! We felt His presence among us and caught a small glimpse of what the Glory of Worship in heaven must be like..
So, to sum it all up… If you buy one worship CD this year then “Right Here” must be it…. And…. if you ever get the chance to see Charles in Concert, you won’t be sorry… This is truly music that ministers!!
