“Symbols and Signs” by Beautiful Eulogy

by Jacob Abshire on February 21, 2014

Beautiful Eulogy from Humble Beast speaks out with poetic clarity on the subject of finding God through symbols and signs. The song is creatively captured in this video by Vital Lens. Below are the lyrics to the song. Learn and enjoy.

[blockquote class=”scripture”]
Pump the brakes, stop sign, you saw the sign now you Ace of Bass
Preacher saw them dollar signs, he on that paper chase
Stuffing profits in his pockets, a wolf with a sheep’s appearance
And the reason he’s making that scratch, huh, is cause those ears itch
Pimping out the Gospel, a prostitution of false doctrine
Lies whistle in the wind but we listen if there’s a little truth mixed in
Find a pastor that suits you, on your TV with a suit and tie
Hitch a ride in his private jet and you’ll be looking stupid fly
Materialism and selfish ambition is a foolish religion
The riches of God’s mercy is worth more than your superstition
Tell me how does a Christian begin to develop discernment and wisdom
First we submit every symbol and sign to the authority of the scriptures

Are you the kind
That’s completely consumed by symbols and signs?
If you are that’s fine
But don’t you find it interesting
How most of the time your self interpreting
Seems to coincide with what’s deep inside your hearts desires
Seems rather convenient doesn’t it?
I’m not saying that God can’t do it, not saying that God won’t do it
That might very well be the case
I’m simply making an observation of how much weight you place on it
What seems to be at stake
And how much of your faith is actually banking on it
And how much of your mysticism is mixed with your religious philosophic system
Sometimes what we believe to be true from our supernatural pursuits
Is actually a fluke, a series of events that’s used to distract you from the truth
But I’ll give you a sign that’s obvious
One of the most supernatural acts is that God through His Word
Has actually revealed everything pertaining to life and godliness
There’s this idea that an individual is somehow more spiritual
If he see these signs and symbols
And takes what’s normally invisible and makes it simple.
But I say the mark of a mature man
Is the one who reads God’s Word and understands
And allows that, to govern his decisions and his perspective plans

I like it when the winds shifts
They say it’s the movement of the spirit
Still small voice y’all hear it?
Remember that time I saw that leaf fall
I was positive it was God’s call
Wait for it listen close. Y’all miss it?
I site Gideon, Samson, Paul
Elijah saw the clouds split
I know that God did it
And does it still, still His presence feels like chills right
And if I’m honest it doesn’t happen often something must be wrong
It’s boring when my life is more like the book of Ruth than Exodus
I’ve never seen the parting of an ocean or a cloud by day or pillar by night
Just a normal everyday working of life
Where things that suck royally is evidence of his royalty
Scratch your temple so deep its simple
Silly us ignore the plain, we prefer a riddle
Dying to see a miracle while holding God’s diary
Looking for signs
