It’s Up To You, by Barnabas

I love this song for its’ slap-in-the-face lyrics, and the music (heavy rock / light metal). I had the album this song was on – ‘Hear the Light’ – and thrashed it until the cassette tape stretched. Their music isn’t to everyone’s taste (don’t judge me!), but I found it endearing at the time. It’s spooky, but it’s was 20 years since I heard the whole album, but I still recalled every word of every song! 

The book of Revelation tells us that Jesus is coming again, to judge the living and the dead.

But that won’t mean anything unless you do something about it.

And what is that ‘something’?

A turning from your sin in repentance, and placing your faith in Christ.

A giving up of the desires of your sinful flesh, and clothing yourself in Christ’s righteousness.

One thing is for sure – you will be judged. And unless there is repentance, the torment of hell awaits you.

But all that is up to you.

So, whose side are you going to be on when Jesus returns?


Lyrics (courtesy

I saw heaven open, and behold! A white horse
With a Rider Who is Faithful and True
His eyes are flames of fire
And on His head are many crowns
In righteousness He’ll judge and make war

Whose side are you gonna be on when Jesus returns?
You better make your decision now that you’ve heard, heard, heard
Its up to you

Its really really up to you

His is the kingdom; His is the power
And the glory forever, amen
Praises to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
Blessed be the name of the Lord

You know the time is coming; every day is closer
To the day when Jesus Christ will return
You know He’ll keep His promise; He said that He’d be coming
And the time is running out for this world
