The theme of the Edifier – EP is edification and each song is about edifying the church in one way or another. Below is a little about each track:
1. The Walking Dead is based on Romans 8:1 and Ephesians 2:1-5 and it’s about having new life in Christ, out with the old dead you and in with the new living you. The song uses the imagery of zombies as a sort of parable to explain the scriptures. Discuss this tune with hashtag #Deadifier.
2. Enoch is a warning of sorts not to live a corrupt and deceitful life, but it also reminds us that there is salvation and we can make a change. Enoch is based on several verses from The Book of Enoch, but the verses used in the song from that non-scriptural book are in agreement with the Holy Scriptures. Discuss this tune with hashtag #ThereIsSalvation.
3. Shine on Boston, previously released as a single, was inspired by the strength and courage of the heroes who helped save lives after the Boston Marathon bombings. It is also about the personal triumph of those who were affected by the tragedy, to quote the song, “Like cowards they came, but we shall overcome.” Discuss this tune with hashtag #ShineOnBoston.
4. Let Me Be Your Mouth is a reminder to use your mouth for good. Instead of cursing your brother, bless God with your mouth by spreading His truth, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Discuss this tune with hashtag #LetMeSpeakTruth.
5. Irreplaceable is dedicated to Kenneth Howe, brother of David Moore. Kenneth Howe passed away in 1992 of Leukemia when David was eight years old. David said, “Kenny was my big brother and my best friend. He was 19 years old and before he got sick, he spent most of his time with me. He will always be irreplaceable to those of us who loved him, especially our mother. So, this one isn’t just for him, but for her as well.” The song is about how God feels about each of His children and how He loves us. If a parent can love a child so much, how much more does God love us? Discuss this tune with hashtag #BeyondTheWonderful.
