Hello everyone, I hope that you and your loved ones are doing great. I hope that your summer is beautiful! I’m profoundly grateful to God to share with you this small piece of work. It is a cover of the song «Smooth Criminal » from Michael Jackson. I believe it to be my favorite song of his.
This cover is dedicated to my brother @Elunyl. It is out today because of his birthday. Happy Birthday brother. It is Matthew, who introduced me to Michael Jackson’s work years ago, I owe him so much. I sincerely love you brother. God bless you and keep you.
About the cover, I changed a bit the lyrics. The idea was to paint the encounter of the Holy-Ghost (which is Jesus, in the Spirit Form) within a human heart. When God comes to you, you won’t be the same ever. It is the most beautiful experience a human can live, you heart open, your eyes open, your ears open. You start to understand the reality of God and His infinite Love for you.
About the lyrics : « And He Blessed You With His Bloodshed ». It relates the day of Crucifixion When Jesus was put to torture and Death, taking Himself the Judgement we deserved because of our sins. Instead of you — paying the price for your own wrong doings — He paid it Himself, with His own Body — so that you don’t have to suffer from them. « Annie Are You Okay » in that context, is simply asking how one feels when the intensity of God comes upon. « I know you okay » because — when Christ comes to you — it is always beautiful and amazing. « The He struck you, the Holy Ghost, Annie ».
Trying to convince here the amazing power of God, and the conviction He provides in one’s heart. So huge that it literally struck one at all levels in all spheres . About the video : The idea was to contemplate Holiness and its ascendance, the long-lasting pleasure it provides and this, in all spheres of life.
The ballet art made me think of this. The intensity and grace of each movement translate something wonderfully deep and holy. Something related to perseverance and glory. It creates a sense of gravity really different.
The video was shot by the amazing filmmaker Cotton Bro.
Few Biblical verses concerning the Holy Spirit :
1) — Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38
2) — They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Acts 2:3-4
3) — But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8
4) — But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. John 14:26
If you want to receive the Holy Spirit, ask God, everyday to send it to you. He will! Wait patiently, even if you don’t see it all of a sudden!
Ah friends, apologies if it is not perfect. I hope you catch the idea behind. Love you all so much, whoever you are God bless you!
