Recognizing that Jesus is The Man for the Hour by the Oakridge Boys

0  comments

Awesome as they already are, tell me one good thing to keep tuning in to America’s favorite Gospel Quartet, The Oakridge Boys? Their depiction of Jesus Christ as always near as opposed to the common notion that he’s some distant cosmic Being. That said, here’s one dug from their archives.

Jesus Is the Man (For the Hour) – The Oakridge Boys

This featured clip of the Oakridge Boys was a live performance back in 1995. The track, however, first appeared on their 1972 album, Light. Later in 2009, it was again included in A Gospel Journey, a gospel album which the Boys specially cut for the Gaither Gospel Series. The album did well on the charts and even won a Dove Award for Long Form Music Video of the Year.

The “Hour” or “Jesus’ Time” Theme

Keeping us together through your pow’r
Jesus take our hand and wash our sins away

The scripture basis for the song is from the quoted words of Jesus on John 12:23. Before his fearful disciples, Jesus declared a word of promise. Despite the fulfillment of other accounts in chapter 16 of the same book, Jesus mentioned an hour or time when all those who follow him will be persecuted. Just as the servant is not greater than his Master, his disciples will likewise be hated and be put to death by those who could not accept the truth in Christ’s Gospel.

Moving to the present, this hour prophetically mean the beginning of sorrows (Ref. 1 John). The whole earth will then cry in pain and many will opt for death. Death, however, will flee from them.
