Verse 1: In the pages of the Bible, we see that God is from everlasting to everlasting Now, we’re not about to drop an everlasting rhyme, but we are going to peer into a period when this everlasting being stepped into time. We’re going to start with the glorious resurrected Christ and work our way back, let’s pick up on the story, now. How should I put it to ya, it’s time to wake up and smell the petunias Go blastin’ with dynamite like Junior From room to room to the next room They search for the body of Jesus, they better check the next tomb Let the tabloids tell and sell this, Jesus seen by more headz after His death then Elvis But with real documentation, rockin’ the nation With hands on experience from high out of space and Will knock your eyes out your face when You see Him for who He is and not what he was Before and after picture will hit ya with more laughter then Buddy Love Plus no one does what He does, get you off the hook even though you fit the bloody glove.

Back up! This is true we’re all guilty, but Jesus gets us off the hook, now let’s back up and take a look at how he does this, at the Cross.

Verse 2: Who’s that hangin there? What you mean you haven’t yet heard? Nah, what did he do? Wasn’t it Barabas’ turn? Yeah, they let him go and took this man instead He must have been real evil, how come they wanted him dead – this bad I’ll tell you but it’ll make you mad, this guy here claimed that our God was his dad That would mean that him and God were one in the same, I’m sure God must be glad for what we’ve done in His name Takin’ the Lord’s name in vain, what an ignorant person I’m sure he went down swingin’ with a whole bunch of cursin’ He didn’t move a muscle not even his lip Well how’d the curtain get torn? When he died it just split You’re kiddin’! Nah, the only thing we heard him say all day was when he prayed Father forgive them.

Back up! Watching Him die seemed to be in sharp contrast to watching Him live. You would’ve thought He was more fit for a crown, then for a cross. Yet still, this is where we meet our savior. Now let’s back up and take a look at the life of this Lord. To get this view, we’ll be using the eyes of the men of His day. Let’s see what they see.

Verse 3: Hear ye, hear me, I suggest we swear in our new lord and king Even though he didn’t come with spears and swords to swing Still, look at how he healed the sick in our villages And tried to pretend that he was just here on a pilgrimage Such modesty, this guy has either got to be the Messiah or the oddest guy that I done seen Did you see him casually reverse Lazarus’ casualty? Plus I heard he had mad words for the Pharisees I’ve seen enough, bring out the throne and crown And ask him when he’s gonna step and bring the Romans down. And give us power, so we can start the delegatin’ Excuse me sir, he left while we were in here celebratin’. What? I can’t believe he fronted I’m sure this is exactly what he must’ve wanted, wasn’t it

Back up! How many times do we think God ought to be serving our purpose, rather then finding out what he desires. I’m sure if we back up a little further, we’ll see just why He came.

Verse 4: Alright y’all, it’s been a long day, we’ve come a long way But this star didn’t lead us the wrong way After all this distance, let’s not waste another instant Bring incense let’s celebrate this infant So unfitting wrapped in knitting born in a stable, I wonder if they know this is no ordinary babe yo! So many questions that yearned to be asked, we turned and we gasped In this child’s eyes we saw eternity past We learned and we grasped that He had come to be spurned and be gnashed By the teeth of men who had sinned and earned every lash His back was to receive and that’s just a relief His pain brings us peace, He just asks us to believe So back up and receive this historical figure, look for the whole picture I’m sure you’re soul will grow richer if you back up.

LORD. You have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Even before the mountains were born, even before you formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting. You are God. Wouldn’t you like to know this God who goes back forever? You can be with this God forever, Jesus Christ invites you.
