SONG: Come and hear the Voice

Translated from Spanish to English & Japanese
Escuche la voz,__Come and hear the voice,__Koe o kikoo

Jesus said:
“Father, glorify your name!”
Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.” The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him.
Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit, not mine.”
[John 12: 28-30]

// Come and hear the voice
It’s the voice of heaven //
// It’s the voice of God my Lord
of my loving Father //

satan's word to Jesus

A work of fiction and imagination
Based on John 1:35 - 2:2

“Jesus of Nazareth- who do you think you are, and what are you doing? Why are you showing up at an existing ministry that was started by another man? Why are you waiting to see who will come talk to you? Are you trying to steal sheep? These people didn’t come to meet you- they came for John the Baptist. If you are really sent by God, you don’t need to visit another ministry. You don’t need to make new friends who are already seeking the things of God. Spend all your time with lost people who are living in darkness. What are you doing, talking with spiritually alive adults that you don’t even know, and bringing them to parties? You call that a ministry? Stay away from places where spiritually alive people gather- you can do it alone.

You’re a carpenter from Nazareth, and you’re already 30. You’re not really young anymore, even if you still think like a young man. Get back JoJo; get back to where you once belonged. The friends and family you grew up with in Nazareth already define your identity. Just listen to the elders at the synagogue, and volunteer to help out there- maybe you can work in the children’s ministry. The elders would not approve of what you are doing now. Nazareth already has enough synagogues, and they are struggling. You should build up what is already there, instead of trying to start something new. That’s my advice. Sincerely, your friend, Satan.”
