Featured Song: "Wake Up!", a original song creation inspired by our show
Show: Up2Me Radio with host Gabby G
Blessed Love, the core of God's divine character and existence. The Blessed Love Jesus Christ. "And so faith, hope, love abide [faith-conviction and belief respecting man's relation to God and divine things; hope-joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love-true affection for God and man, growing out of God's love for and in us] these three; but the greatest of these is love." ~1Corinthians 13:13~ Sanctified and commissioned to reach the lost through the uncompromising Word of God with reggae music, and to disciple those who have been reached, to fulfill our Kingdom Assignment here on earth. "Blessed shall you be when you come in and blessed shall you be when you go out." ~Deut. 28:6~ "Blessed be the Lord forevermore! Amen and Amen." ~Ps. 89:52~ We are BLESSED LOVE GOSPEL REGGAE BAND
Blessed Love is the love that can only come from our risen savior YESHUA. We are individuals sent to proclaim the love of God. Our focus and aim is to take His Word and bring it to the masses - to express His love, mercy, grace and resurrection through Reggae music. It is our desire to see that the world not only know Jesus Christ, but find the freedom to worship Him with the talents and abilities given to each individual through the Holy Spirit - to worship Him in Spirit and in truth. We the few workers - with heart-thumping roots and dancehall reggae - will be the hands and feet that bring forth the harvest. In a world where many are intimidated by the four walls of a building, we look to break down those walls!
-- Then He said to them, " The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest." ( Luke 10:2 NKJV)
