Oh, Sleeper - Hush Yael (Slideshow With Lyrics)



  • 2011-11-22T04:12:04

The ignorance of some people astounds me. Just because something doesn't sound Godly doesn't mean that it is of satan if you had heard any of their other music you would understand that they are all God fearing individuals who play God centered music. I have seen this band live and I have listened as they stood on stage and testified for God amongst many boos from the audience. They are playing God centered music to non-Christians and although it may not be praise and worship they are spreading the love of Jesus Christ throughout this world. Jesus didn't stay in the temple among the religious leaders, Jesus took the word and the Love of God to the streets, to the sinners and the outcasts and the people that needed love, similar to the way in which this band is doing. Praise and worship has its place, trust me I play it and I love it and I use it to give back to God but these men have talents and gifts from God and they are using them to give back to God as well and playing to a generation of broken and hopeless individuals. If you played praise and worship or sang hymns to most of our youth they would laugh at you and walk away, but this is just another type of ministry. There is a whole movement of Christ centered music that is breaking away from tradition and away from the ordinary and I feel sorry for anybody who is too blinded by tradition and ritual to stand in the way of God's movement because something is "different" or "scary". "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;" Romans 1:18 Our God is merciful and just but our God is also capable of great wrath and God will have his vengeance upon satan and all who abide in sin. I don't believe this song is a call of wrath by humans but a plea to God to punish this man for his horrendous sin, because guess what God HATES sin will not abide in its presence. We are not called to hate or to have revenge because revenge is for the Lord. Oh, and anybody who has a functional ear could determine that this sounds nothing like Ozzie Osbourne.

Get used to it, This music speaks to the lost more then to his chosen already.Is not what we are commanded to do reach out of the box and call out to the lost.Remember Jesus told use to seek out the lost and make them his disciples. Not for us to go to church every Sunday and get our selves pumped up to do more good the next following week when all of us is in darkness at one point in our lives. we call ourselves Christ like people but we come and go each week and don't even talk to one person about Christ Jesus and what he did on the cross because we fear the lost.TIME TO WAKE UP OH CHRISTENS SAY"S GOD in CHRIST JESUS by THE HOLY GHOST!

Personaly I don't appreciate this genre of music, though I do have a wide range of genres in my music library. Saying that though, after doing a google search on this song I have a great appreciation for the song. Not saying I like it though. Copy this address and paste it into your address bar and read the write-up under the lyrics, for yourself. http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/3530822107858879520/ After seeing this I say WOW! what a powerful song. Is it a song of praise and worship to our God? Absolutely not, but that does not mean they are not a God fearing band. Also remember this, all those who have replied so negatively, 1/ God is the one who does the judging. That is not our job, (lest we be juged ourselves). 2/ If you don't like it, turn it off. But remember this, Not everyone likes you. Does that make you a bad or wrong person? 3/ This song is telling a true story of life in this world we live in. To shut it off and refuse to recognise the truth behind it, is to turn your back on the needs of people just because you don't like their story. I would suggest that anyone who has posted a negative or judgmental comment about this song or the band behind it, come before God and seek forgiveness for their hard heartedness and blind eye on the reallity of the situation, then say a prayer for Smadar Haran who has to live through such trauma, and carry on with her life having such a loss. Bear this in mind also, If this band was to play this sort of music before they knew Christ, then it would be logical that they would do what they know to tell their stories. Also who is their audience? those that like this sort of music are not going to listen to hymns sung by the local church choir. Like it or not, I hope you have a better appreciation for it. God bless you, this band and their music.

I do not appreciate this type of music, though I do have a wide genre range in my library. That being said, I do not believe this to be worship music to our God. I will however not say that they are not a christian band with good intent. Before passing any judgement on them, (which is not our job anyway), it is good to do some research. A quick google search on this track explains the song and the lyrics. What a wonderful peace of music to portray the story being told. To find out why I say this, copy the link below and paste it in your address bar. Saying that, No, I still don't like the music. I just appreciate where they are coming from. http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/3530822107858879520/#73016080602 To those who have passed judgement on this group, remember these, 1/ Do some research first. Things are not always what they appear. 2/ It is not our job to judge (lest we be judged). Leave that bit to the Lord. 3/ If you really don't like it, turn it off. Remember, not everyone likes you. That doesn't make you bad and/or wrong. To those who pass judgement or accusations against them, please come before the Lord and seek forgiveness for your judgemnet on others, so that you may stay "in tune" with the Lord.

It sounds very dark and demonic. It's extremely sinister.

  • 2011-10-14T00:33:49

I know it may not sound like the music some people are comfortable listening to, but take into consideration the fact that everyone in this band could be sincere devoted followers who are expressing some real angst or frustrations with what is going on in the world. A lot of newer genres and bands like this are very focused on social and global issues just like you and this is how they express their feelings towards it. Do some research and look up Yael, then read Deborahs song in the Book of Judges. Out of context Deborahs song can be very gruesome, but it is still Gods word. I've never heard this band or song before and this is actually the first time one Godtube so I have no predetermined bias, but when I first heard this song it made me think of so many different issues shown throughout the Bible. Just because a song isn't appealing to you, doesn't mean the ones behind the music aren't just as sincere in the message they are trying to convey.

This is a long post but please read it. This is a Christian Band. This song is a metaphorical/allegorical song about fighting injustice. Specifically about a day in history when a great injustice occured. Lyrics: On the 22nd day of the 4th month, 1979 warrants a judgement. Because he came and he saw. And this coward conquered a family asleep in their home. Rise Rise We must rise for the helpless and fight for their justice. "On 22 April 1979, a group of terrorists from the Palestine Liberation Front (PLF) left southern Lebanon on their way to Israel with the objective of carrying out a terrorist attack. The squad, which consisted of four terrorists under command of Samir Kuntar, had landed their rubber boat in Nahariya's beach at around midnight. At first, the squad attacked a private home, but were driven away by shots fired by the owner, however, Mr. Eliyahu Shahar, a local policeman who arrived on the scene in a police vehicle was shot and killed by terrorist fire. Later, the terrorists broke into the private apartment of the Haran family. The mother, Smadar, was able to find refuge in the bedroom attic together with her two year-old daughter, Yael. Whilst trying to silence the girl's cries and not reveal their place of hiding to the terrorists, the girl had choked to death. The terrorists never did discover Smadar and Yael, however, they did take her husband Danny Haran and their four year old daughter, Einat, as hostages. The terrorists now took their hostages with them and returned to the beach. IDF troops and police who arrived on the scene exchanged gunfire with the terrorists, and it was during this exchange of fire that Samir Kuntar murdered the hostages. He first shot Danny Haran in the back at close range, and then killed Einat by crushing her skull. By the end of fire, Israeli forces had killed two of the terrorists, while Samir Kuntar and the remaining terrorist, Ahmed Abras, were taken into custody. " https://www.10million.org/en/The%20Nahariya%20Terrorist%20Attack%20%E2%80%93%20April%2022%20,1979 I know you guys are used to music that is beautiful and sweet. And that is good, but there is an entire culture of young people in this world that will NOT listen to that. They will NOT listen to the gospel from some old fogey, and the will NOT acknowledge Christ through the same old stories and methods. This new age of Christian Metal is a ministry opportunity for the new generation. It is a HUGE mission field. If you can come into their culture and understand their worldview and their mind you can win them to Christ. Our God says to sing a new song unto Him. Is our God the God of praise hymns only or the God of every living thing and every sound that a living thing can create? I serve a BIG God that can and does use EVERYTHING for His glory and purposes. oh and here is another song by this band, lyrics are from God's perspective speaking to Satan the enemy. Do you mean to challenge me? Because your speech is threatening to the writer of your history, through a future perverted by envy. Your whisper may sway the weak, but when I speak it roars the seas. Your challenge has been met because with a breath I could snap your neck. This won’t be like the first time you tried because my patience and mercy for you has run dry. You watered among my bride and started seeds to feed your throning flight. I will sing to the world your storm is capturing, and the angels will join me. We will sing to a world reborn from suffering. But mark my words because if that tree keeps them from seeing me, I’ll burn off your limbs, and you will never shade again. You’ll bow at my feet, or I’ll rip off your knees, and make of your face all the carnage you crave. I am the Finisher and I am forever. I will sing to the world your storm is capturing, and the angels will join me. We will sing to a world reborn from suffering. From the armories the angels sing. You will see them end this suffering. From the armories the angels sing. You will fear them when they lift their wings. They will sing to a world reborn. They will sing as I cut off your horns. I’ll cut off your horns.

Don't sound Christian to me, but then I CAN'T UNDERSTAND the words. Didn't like at all.

  • 2011-10-12T12:01:02

Wow! That sounds like hate and revenge music to me. How did this get on Godtube?

  • 2011-10-11T21:17:52

http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn?pagename=article&contentId=A2740-2003May17 This is the story that the song it about, it's a song about martyrs. to be a martyr is absolutely of God, It's beautiful, and and the meaning of trust and the love for God.

  • 2011-10-10T13:44:45

what? This is terrible! This is not of GOD.

  • 2011-10-09T04:10:18

Okay.... Where is God is in this? Even if I couldn't understand it... I HUGE on the WORDS...

  • 2011-10-08T02:03:41

I kinda like it and can appreciate it's passion but am confuse as to what it is about. Is it about the singers family who was murdered? Or the world in general? Or what?

  • 2011-10-07T16:30:15

And this is Christian music? I seriously doubt it.
