"Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!" Revelation 4:8

The embodiment of Revelation 4 is evident in call on Heaven. Passion's latest record is the cry of a generation. Each year, since the conference's debut 26 years ago, Passion has always released an album recorded live from conference. From the days of Chris Tomlin, Christy Nockels, Charlie Hall, on through to the days of Matt Redman, Passion has never ceased to sing the praises of the one true God. That's why this project is so special. The posture has never changed from year to year, but pursuit just hit different with this one.

Call on Heaven is Passion at their best. Featuring anthems of declaration, love, and gratitude to Jesus, this will forever mark a generation that is desperate for the one true King. After attending the conference in January myself, and experiencing these moments first hand, I am marked by the moments that I will never forget. "He Who Is To Come," led by Passion vet Kristian Stanfill, gives the album a fitting opening that invites Jesus to come. His people, his church are anxiously waiting for that passage in Revelation to come to fruition. The world will behold like a bride awaiting her groom.

"He who is to come
Christ the Son of Man
Riding on the clouds with a crown upon His head
Every eye will see Him
With the nail scars in His hands
Hallelujah
Hallelujah"

The highlights from Call on Heaven are monumental, which include the lead single, "The Lord Will Provide," led with authority by Landon Wolfe; an upbeat anthem titled "Salvation Belongs To You," led by Kristian Stanfill; "Cry Out," led by Brett Younker; a version of "Fall Like Rain" that features Rachel Halbach (who originally recorded this anthem) together with Kari Jobe; "No Body," led by the incredible Chidimah; "Holy Forever," led by Kari Jobe; "Follow," led by Melodie Malone; a live rendition of "Calvary's Enough," led by Brooke Ligertwood, and the 20-minute version of the classic "Agnus Dei" that became the defining moment of Passion '24.

But "How Great Is Your Name," led by Rachel Halbach is arguably the best song on the project; from the chorus that offers a posture of surrender that brings nothing more than sacrifice of authentic worship, to the hard-hitting bridge that proclaims every bit of who Jesus is:

"You are the master
The ruler
The sovereign king of kings
The savior
The servant
The fount of endless grace
The lion of Judah
The lamb who made a way
Your name is Jesus
Your name is Jesus.

It's incredible lyricism. How Great is the name of Jesus!

Call on Heaven doesn't offer a "new cool worship sound." Instead, it offers an old posture that is sometimes is absent from the Christian music realm. This is the album the church needs now more than ever. It's the simplicity of our words in worship that matters to Jesus in the end. This generation is desperate for a revival, an awakening. Nothing complicated, yet an authentic pursuit of something REAL in this life. I witnessed that this past January. Each song, moment, and individual changed all for one name.
