The perfect complimentary companion to Trace Taylor's debut album, 'IT IS FINISHED': A fictional narrative of Yeshua's time in Heaven, as he prepares for his first advent to planet Earth, right unto the end of time. Moving through the songs off the album in story form, Not Fire, but blood reveals the meaning behind each track to a far deeper level. Lyrics are included at the back of the book and also an explanation of the title itself.
'He looks and behold, a strong pillar rising from the ashes of planet Earth. A pillar the prince sees made up of myriads of people. “My Body” he says, his tones resonating deep affection. Hope, delight, love and pain all collide at once as if caught up in one big, frenzied, emotional whirlwind. He knew what it took to get this far and the cost of Heaven itself for this moment to be realized. The moment victory was complete.
His Church was rising in a time yet to occur that would take place far into Earth’s future -even the end of days.
Suddenly, the throne room stoods still –the realm outside of time held its breath for there, gently flowing down the prince’s cheek, was a solitary drop of liquid crystal. All eyes were fixed on this drop so alien to the kingdom, as they watch it course down his as yet un-scarred face. The realm’s inhabitants, including angels, seraphim, cherubim, with the resplendent Father, watched as this clear gel-like fluid fell from the countenance of His majesty’s son, the prince. “Yeshua!” they exclaimed in hushed tones, staring, transfixed. What was this substance of sorrow emanating from the Prince Of Peace?
Not one knew except The Father, The Ancient One seated on the throne. In thick silence they watched the droplet travel slowly, down, down through space’s vortex, until finally it hit the Timeline.
A deep rumbling vibration began as a new cog of the universe set in motion. Sturdily, it clunked as it connected to its counterpart, the first in a chain that were seemingly fashioned solely for this purpose. Cavernous was the grinding sound as they moved in tandem, slowly at first, then steadily faster as they gained momentum, effortlessly falling into place amongst the other great wheels of the universe. As their song resounded, it reverberated out like sonic waves creating tremors that would ripple out across the galaxy for all eternity…' (Opening excerpt of Chapter 1)
