Messianic worship veteran Paul Wilbur has just released his brand new release "Forever Good" via Integrity Music. 'Forever Good' builds on the success of releases like 'Shalom Jerusalem', 'Jerusalem Arise', 'The Watchman' and others, which have sold over 3 million units worldwide. This powerful recording features songs that merge the Messianic root of our faith with the prophetic and creative style that has made Paul a significant voice in the Messianic movement as well as contemporary worship.
Paul Wilbur brings an indispensable component to worship music often overlooked by today's worship songwriters. Wilbur allows us to see through his extensive discography that our faith finds its roots in the Hebrew Bible. And that our worship shouldn't be ethno-centric in the sense that we forget that God's loves peoples of all nations, particularly the Jewish people.
On April 14, Integrity Music will release Paul Wilbur's brand new release "Forever Good." As usual, all the inspiration has been drawn from the scriptures, and you will find yourself singing these new songs of praise all day long!
Messianic worship leader Paul Wilbur has released his latest worship album Revive. The new album finds Wilbur revisiting some of his most popular worship songs giving them "a brand new feel." Paul Wilbur is a globally recognized worship leader who has recorded in six different languages. One of Wilbur's passion is to connect Christians back to their Jewish roots.
Every year Integrity Music releases its iworship collection, this year's installment again contains a stellar line-up of artists and worship anthems that have had impacted the church. The iWorship series of recordings has sold in excess of 2 million copies.
Where do song writers of worship songs find their muse? A cursory glance at the lyrics of some of our modern worship songs seem to suggest that these writers find more affinity with Taylor Swift, U2 and (God forbid) Elton John than with Scripture. This is what you won't get with Paul Wilbur. Instead of plagiarizing phases or ideas from secular songs, Wilbur's finds his wellspring in the Hebrew Bible or the Old Testament.
Messianic worship leader Paul Wilbur is looking forward to the release of his first album in two decades. Your Great Name is out from Integrity on 19 February and is a celebration of all the different attributes of God.
