Hello everyone and welcome back to Afritunes week 102! It's been a few months since I last posted a video in this community which is far too long. I sincerely apologize and hope you'll forgive my absence. Sometimes life just gets overly busy. But I am thrilled to be back creating content for this wonderful, supportive community that feels like family to me. I missed you all!

In today's video I'm excited to share a very special song with you - it's an original song called "Man of War" that was composed in my church some years ago. Whenever we would sing it during services, I could feel the power and majesty in the lyrics. It never failed to move me deeply and fill me with strength during turbulent seasons. So I wanted to learn this song properly, record it and share it with you all today. I think you're going to love it.

The title "Man of War" is a name for God used in the Bible to signify his mighty power as a warrior who fights for his people. It comes from the book of Exodus when Moses and the enslaved Israelites saw God deliver them from their horrific oppression under Egypt's Pharaoh through terrifying plagues. After that stunning show of divine might and victory against their enemy, they gave God a new name - "Yahweh-Nissi" meaning "The Lord is my banner." Under that banner of supreme power, the bedraggled Israelites found hope, freedom, and triumph at last.

This song carries that same raw, defiant power I can feel resonating through the lyrics declaring who our God truly is. As a "Man of War," he marches ahead of us into every battle that life throws our way, conquering fear, despair and anything seeking to entrap us. It's a cry of absolute trust in God's strength to shatter every chain binding us no matter how overwhelming circumstances become. This song pierces oppression right in the heart.

I will admit learning to perform this passion-filled song took me way out of my comfort zone. It has a very different style than my usual kind of song. But I think stepping beyond those creative limits resulted in my favorite video so far.

So I truly hope this spontaneous high-energy worship session blesses and lifts your spirit today friends. Please let me know in comments what songs old or new have been your lifeline lately when you desperately needed to feel God fighting alongside you. Because I believe the lyrics say it best - "Jehovah is a fighter in the time of war ,And under his banner, the battle belongs to Him so we can walk free. Now let's worship together.

The lyrics are powerful and inspiring too. Being a man of war is something we need to keep praying as Christians because we must be a strong warrior for God to use. Nice song, T.
