God bless you all, and welcome back to the Johann S. Bach Sacred Cantatas for this 5th Sunday after Trinity.

This is a recording conducted by Ton Koopman, one of today's better European interpreters of baroque era music, and he did a lovely job here.

This is BWV 88 - Siehe, ich will viel Fischer aussenden/Behold, I will send out many fishermen, a direct quote of Jeremiah 16: 16 (KJV):

16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.

We may read and be edified by this work's English translation at http://emmanuelmusic.org/notes_translations/translations_cantata/t_bwv088.htm#pab1_7

Since this Old Testament Prophecy reading alludes to today's Gospel reading, I'll share the Gospel of Luke 5: 1 - 11 (KJV):

1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. 4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. 6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. 7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. 8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. 9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken: 10 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men. 11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him. 

Now Christ makes us fishers of men, of live human beings.  The 4th Movement of this Cantata is Luke 5: 10, stating this, as Jesus' own words.  The 7th Movement is the 7th verse of Georg Neumark's 1657 hymn, "Wer nur den lieben Gott laesst walten," which we shared in my previous post.

When the perverted mind turns from God and races to its demise, God Almighty could easily do without us.  Yet, God, through Jesus Christ our LORD, guides us into the good path AWAY FROM PERVERSION OF ALL KINDS, and toward His CROSS, the PATH TO HEAVEN!  Nothing can or must frighten us or cause us to stray from our path to Heaven via Christ's Cross.  We go forth joyfully toward what once made us tremble in fear and now leaves us strengthened and encouraged, even though every vile trouble and pain should destroy us.

Here are Dr. Melvin Unger's Scripture cross references for each Movement.

1.  Jer. 16: 14 - 16, Hab. 1: 14-  15, Lk. 5: 10.

2.  Rom. 10: 21, Mt. 13: 15 (Luther: "verstockt" for "grown dull"), Mt. 23: 37, Rom. 3: 10 - 12 & 15 - 18, Rom. 1: 28, Ps. 103: 10 - 13, 2. Tim. 2: 13, 1 Jn. 4: 10, Rom. 5: 8, Heb. 3: 12 - 13 (Luther: "verstockt" for "hardened," and "Betrug der Suende" for "deceitfulness of sin").

3.  Mt. 7: 13 - 14, Is. 53: 6, Ezek. 34: 11 & 16, Is. 30: 21, Jer. 10: 23, Mt. 18: 12 - 13.

4.  Lk. 5: 5 - 11.

5.  Lk. 5: 4 - 7, 2 Tim. 1: 9 - 10, Rom. 11: 29, 1 Cor. 4: 1 - 2, Mt. 25: 14- 19 & 24 - 27, Jn. 15: 8 & 16.

6.  Mt. 14: 28 - 31, Mt. 8: 23 - 27, Is. 14: 27, Rom. 8: 33 - 39, 2 Cor. 4: 7 - 10, Mt. 11: 28 - 30, Rom. 8: 28, James 1: 2- 4, Heb. 12: 11.

7.  2 Tim. 4: 5, Col. 3: 16 - 17, 1 Cor. 4: 1 - 2, Prov. 3: 5 - 6, Ps. 37: 5, Deut. 28: 12, Lam. 3: 22 - 23, Ps. 9: 10, Deut. 31: 8. (Unger, pp. 305 - 308).

God bless and edify you all in HIS Word, which is His TRUTH.  Again, because this is originally in German, the scriptures refer to Dr. Martin Luther's translation as Johann S. Bach and his contemporaries read that, which is one reason why Dr. Unger's work in cross-referencing these Scriptures is so important.

Lord willing, I'll return next week to share the music and text of Johann S. Bach's Cantatas for next Sunday.  Good night and may God keep you on the path to Heaven.

Good evening, dear Christians, and welcome to the Johann S. Bach sacred Cantatas for this 5th Sunday after Trinity.  This video is of a recording conducted by Philippe Herreweghe and the Collegium Vocale Gent, one of the leading performance groups of Bach's work on planet Earth.

This first of JSB's 2 Cantatas for today is BWV 93 -- Wer nur den lieben, Gott laesst walten/Who only lets dear God rule, whose tune we sing today as "I Leave All Things to God's Direction" and "If Thou But Trust in God to Guide Thee."  It is the Georg Neumark hymn of the same title, written in 1657.

This is one of Bach's Cantatas whose middle Movements expand upon and explain the hymn in light of this Sunday's Scripture Lessons, the first of which is 1 Peter 3: 8 - 15 (KJV):

8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: 9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. 10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. 13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? 14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; 15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 

I will post today's Gospel lesson with the 2nd Cantata, which quotes the Gospel lesson anyway.

We may read the English translation, and be blessed and edified by this work, at http://emmanuelmusic.org/notes_translations/translations_cantata/t_bwv093.htm#pab1_7

God will support us in every sorrow.  Even though we bear our Crosses, and endure a thousand pains, God will guide us through that and will turn away all suffering in the end as He sends help to us, His children.  All we need to do is be faithful and not be hypocrites.  Don't wear the Cross if you don't bear the Cross.

Please do not think that God has abandoned you in despair, for even in death, God grants us His grace through Jesus Christ our Savior.  Walk and sing and pray in God's ways and trust in His blessings.  God will never abandon us.

Here are the Scripture references for each Movement from Dr. Melvin P. Unger, in his "Handbook to Bach's Sacred Cantata Texts."

1.  Ps. 146: 5 (Luther: "Hoffnung" for "hope"), Jer. 17: 7, Lk. 5: 4 - 5, Prov. 3: 5 - 6, Ps. 34: 19, 1 Pet. 3: 14 - 15, Mk. 8: 34, Mt. 7: 24 - 27.

There is one more Johann S. Bach Sacred Cantata for today.  Cited within these Scripture references is Dr. Martin Luther's own translation of the Holy Scriptures into German, which he made so Germans and now people all over the earth can understand what God told us in the original Hebrew, Greek, ancient Aramaic, Syriac, and Latin texts.  Dr. Luther did this as part of his great Reformation work so average people could understand God's word in their own language.  I'll post that second Cantata shortly, then bid you a fond goodnight.

God bless you all, and welcome back to the Johann S. Bach Sacred Cantatas for this 5th Sunday after Trinity.

This is a recording conducted by Ton Koopman, one of today's better European interpreters of baroque era music, and he did a lovely job here.

This is BWV 88 - Siehe, ich will viel Fischer aussenden/Behold, I will send out many fishermen, a direct quote of Jeremiah 16: 16 (KJV):

16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.

We may read and be edified by this work's English translation at http://emmanuelmusic.org/notes_translations/translations_cantata/t_bwv088.htm#pab1_7

Since this Old Testament Prophecy reading alludes to today's Gospel reading, I'll share the Gospel of Luke 5: 1 - 11 (KJV):

1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. 4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. 6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. 7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. 8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. 9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken: 10 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men. 11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him. 

Now Christ makes us fishers of men, of live human beings.  The 4th Movement of this Cantata is Luke 5: 10, stating this, as Jesus' own words.  The 7th Movement is the 7th verse of Georg Neumark's 1657 hymn, "Wer nur den lieben Gott laesst walten," which we shared in my previous post.

When the perverted mind turns from God and races to its demise, God Almighty could easily do without us.  Yet, God, through Jesus Christ our LORD, guides us into the good path AWAY FROM PERVERSION OF ALL KINDS, and toward His CROSS, the PATH TO HEAVEN!  Nothing can or must frighten us or cause us to stray from our path to Heaven via Christ's Cross.  We go forth joyfully toward what once made us tremble in fear and now leaves us strengthened and encouraged, even though every vile trouble and pain should destroy us.

Here are Dr. Melvin Unger's Scripture cross references for each Movement.

1.  Jer. 16: 14 - 16, Hab. 1: 14-  15, Lk. 5: 10.

2.  Rom. 10: 21, Mt. 13: 15 (Luther: "verstockt" for "grown dull"), Mt. 23: 37, Rom. 3: 10 - 12 & 15 - 18, Rom. 1: 28, Ps. 103: 10 - 13, 2. Tim. 2: 13, 1 Jn. 4: 10, Rom. 5: 8, Heb. 3: 12 - 13 (Luther: "verstockt" for "hardened," and "Betrug der Suende" for "deceitfulness of sin").

3.  Mt. 7: 13 - 14, Is. 53: 6, Ezek. 34: 11 & 16, Is. 30: 21, Jer. 10: 23, Mt. 18: 12 - 13.

4.  Lk. 5: 5 - 11.

5.  Lk. 5: 4 - 7, 2 Tim. 1: 9 - 10, Rom. 11: 29, 1 Cor. 4: 1 - 2, Mt. 25: 14- 19 & 24 - 27, Jn. 15: 8 & 16.

6.  Mt. 14: 28 - 31, Mt. 8: 23 - 27, Is. 14: 27, Rom. 8: 33 - 39, 2 Cor. 4: 7 - 10, Mt. 11: 28 - 30, Rom. 8: 28, James 1: 2- 4, Heb. 12: 11.

7.  2 Tim. 4: 5, Col. 3: 16 - 17, 1 Cor. 4: 1 - 2, Prov. 3: 5 - 6, Ps. 37: 5, Deut. 28: 12, Lam. 3: 22 - 23, Ps. 9: 10, Deut. 31: 8. (Unger, pp. 305 - 308).

God bless and edify you all in HIS Word, which is His TRUTH.  Again, because this is originally in German, the scriptures refer to Dr. Martin Luther's translation as Johann S. Bach and his contemporaries read that, which is one reason why Dr. Unger's work in cross-referencing these Scriptures is so important.

Lord willing, I'll return next week to share the music and text of Johann S. Bach's Cantatas for next Sunday.  Good night and may God keep you on the path to Heaven.

God bless you all, and welcome back to the Johann S. Bach Sacred Cantatas for this 5th Sunday after Trinity.

This is a recording conducted by Ton Koopman, one of today's better European interpreters of baroque era music, and he did a lovely job here.

This is BWV 88 - Siehe, ich will viel Fischer aussenden/Behold, I will send out many fishermen, a direct quote of Jeremiah 16: 16 (KJV):

16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.

We may read and be edified by this work's English translation at http://emmanuelmusic.org/notes_translations/translations_cantata/t_bwv088.htm#pab1_7

Since this Old Testament Prophecy reading alludes to today's Gospel reading, I'll share the Gospel of Luke 5: 1 - 11 (KJV):

1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. 4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. 6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. 7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. 8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. 9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken: 10 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men. 11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him. 

Now Christ makes us fishers of men, of live human beings.  The 4th Movement of this Cantata is Luke 5: 10, stating this, as Jesus' own words.  The 7th Movement is the 7th verse of Georg Neumark's 1657 hymn, "Wer nur den lieben Gott laesst walten," which we shared in my previous post.

When the perverted mind turns from God and races to its demise, God Almighty could easily do without us.  Yet, God, through Jesus Christ our LORD, guides us into the good path AWAY FROM PERVERSION OF ALL KINDS, and toward His CROSS, the PATH TO HEAVEN!  Nothing can or must frighten us or cause us to stray from our path to Heaven via Christ's Cross.  We go forth joyfully toward what once made us tremble in fear and now leaves us strengthened and encouraged, even though every vile trouble and pain should destroy us.

Here are Dr. Melvin Unger's Scripture cross references for each Movement.

1.  Jer. 16: 14 - 16, Hab. 1: 14-  15, Lk. 5: 10.

2.  Rom. 10: 21, Mt. 13: 15 (Luther: "verstockt" for "grown dull"), Mt. 23: 37, Rom. 3: 10 - 12 & 15 - 18, Rom. 1: 28, Ps. 103: 10 - 13, 2. Tim. 2: 13, 1 Jn. 4: 10, Rom. 5: 8, Heb. 3: 12 - 13 (Luther: "verstockt" for "hardened," and "Betrug der Suende" for "deceitfulness of sin").

3.  Mt. 7: 13 - 14, Is. 53: 6, Ezek. 34: 11 & 16, Is. 30: 21, Jer. 10: 23, Mt. 18: 12 - 13.

4.  Lk. 5: 5 - 11.

5.  Lk. 5: 4 - 7, 2 Tim. 1: 9 - 10, Rom. 11: 29, 1 Cor. 4: 1 - 2, Mt. 25: 14- 19 & 24 - 27, Jn. 15: 8 & 16.

6.  Mt. 14: 28 - 31, Mt. 8: 23 - 27, Is. 14: 27, Rom. 8: 33 - 39, 2 Cor. 4: 7 - 10, Mt. 11: 28 - 30, Rom. 8: 28, James 1: 2- 4, Heb. 12: 11.

7.  2 Tim. 4: 5, Col. 3: 16 - 17, 1 Cor. 4: 1 - 2, Prov. 3: 5 - 6, Ps. 37: 5, Deut. 28: 12, Lam. 3: 22 - 23, Ps. 9: 10, Deut. 31: 8. (Unger, pp. 305 - 308).

God bless and edify you all in HIS Word, which is His TRUTH.  Again, because this is originally in German, the scriptures refer to Dr. Martin Luther's translation as Johann S. Bach and his contemporaries read that, which is one reason why Dr. Unger's work in cross-referencing these Scriptures is so important.

Christian Music  - 
 
 
Good evening, dear Christians, and welcome to the Johann S. Bach sacred Cantatas for this 5th Sunday after Trinity.  This video is of a recording conducted by Philippe Herreweghe and the Collegium Vocale Gent, one of the leading performance groups of Bach's work on planet Earth.

This first of JSB's 2 Cantatas for today is BWV 93 -- Wer nur den lieben, Gott laesst walten/Who only lets dear God rule, whose tune we sing today as "I Leave All Things to God's Direction" and "If Thou But Trust in God to Guide Thee."  It is the Georg Neumark hymn of the same title, written in 1657.

This is one of Bach's Cantatas whose middle Movements expand upon and explain the hymn in light of this Sunday's Scripture Lessons, the first of which is 1 Peter 3: 8 - 15 (KJV):

8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: 9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. 10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. 13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? 14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; 15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 

I will post today's Gospel lesson with the 2nd Cantata, which quotes the Gospel lesson anyway.

We may read the English translation, and be blessed and edified by this work, at http://emmanuelmusic.org/notes_translations/translations_cantata/t_bwv093.htm#pab1_7

God will support us in every sorrow.  Even though we bear our Crosses, and endure a thousand pains, God will guide us through that and will turn away all suffering in the end as He sends help to us, His children.  All we need to do is be faithful and not be hypocrites.  Don't wear the Cross if you don't bear the Cross.

Please do not think that God has abandoned you in despair, for even in death, God grants us His grace through Jesus Christ our Savior.  Walk and sing and pray in God's ways and trust in His blessings.  God will never abandon us.

Here are the Scripture references for each Movement from Dr. Melvin P. Unger, in his "Handbook to Bach's Sacred Cantata Texts."

1.  Ps. 146: 5 (Luther: "Hoffnung" for "hope"), Jer. 17: 7, Lk. 5: 4 - 5, Prov. 3: 5 - 6, Ps. 34: 19, 1 Pet. 3: 14 - 15, Mk. 8: 34, Mt. 7: 24 - 27.

2.  Ps. 38: 6 - 10 & 13 - 14, Ps. 42: 3, Ps. 31: 9 - 11, 2 Cor. 1: 8 - 10, Ps. 6: 6 - 7, Jer. 45: 3 (Luther: "Ich seufze mich muede" for "I weary myself with my groaning"), Mt. 10: 38, Mt. 16: 24 - 25, Ps. 131: 2, Jms. 5: 10 - 11.

3.  Lam. 3: 24 - 26, Ps. 131: 1 - 2, Mk. 14: 41 - 42 (Luther: "die Stunde ist gekommen" for "the hour has come"), Ps. 23: 4, Heb. 13: 5 (Luther: "...dich nicht verlassen noch versaeumen" for "... will never leave you nor forsake you"), Ps. 73: 24 (Luther: "Rat" for "counsel"), Prov. 8: 14 (Luther: "Rat und Tat" for "counsel and sound wisdom"), Lk. 18: 7 - 8 (Luther: "Auserwaehlten" for "elect"), 1 Peter 5: 10, Ps. 103: 13, 1 Jn. 3: 1.

4.  Lam. 3: 25 - 26, 1 Pet. 3: 10 - 12, Ps. 84: 11, Gal. 6: 9, Ps. 40: 17, Rom. 8: 28, Ps. 27: 13 - 14.

5.  Ps. 46: 1 - 3 (Luther: "Zuversicht" for "refuge"), Rom. 8: 35 & 38 - 39, Mt. 28: 20, Heb. 13: 5 - 6, Ps. 23: 4, 2 Tim. 2: 19 (Luther: "Der Herr kennt die Seinen..." for "The LORD knows who are His"), Lk. 16: 19 - 25, James 5: 1 & 3 - 5 & 7 - 8, Mk. 10: 31, Prov. 14: 12, 2 Kings 4: 38 - 40, Prov. 12: 28, James 5: 7, Lk. 5: 4 - 9, Prov. 3: 5, Ps. 30: 5, Jer. 31: 13, Job 14: 5, Ps. 31: 14 - 15, Ps. 73: 24.

6.  Mic. 7: 7, Ps. 17: 6 - 7, Ps. 118: 8 - 9, Lk. 1: 51 - 53, Ps. 107: 9, 1 Sam. 2: 7 - 8, Mk. 10: 31.

7.  Gal. 6: 9, 1 Pet. 4: 19, 2 Tim. 4: 5, 1 Cor. 4: 1 - 2, Rev. 2: 10 (Luther: "sei getreu bis an den Tod" for "be faithful unto death"), Deut. 28: 12, Ps. 84: 11, Lam. 3: 22 - 23, Ps. 9: 10, Deut. 31: 8. (Unger, pp. 326 - 330).

There is one more Johann S. Bach Sacred Cantata for today.  Cited within these Scripture references is Dr. Martin Luther's own translation of the Holy Scriptures into German, which he made so Germans and now people all over the earth can understand what God told us in the original Hebrew, Greek, ancient Aramaic, Syriac, and Latin texts.  Dr. Luther did this as part of his great Reformation work so average people could understand God's word in their own language.  I'll post that second Cantata shortly, then bid you a fond goodnight.
