Understanding 2Chronciles 7:14

Understanding 2 Chronicles 7:14by James BanfieldIn order to understand 2 Chronicles 7:14 we first must read 2 Chronicles 6:1-42 In it it says that Solomon had finished the Temple and was ready to dedicate it to the Lord. So he had built this great altar and stood upon it and then bent down to his knee and gave a mighty prayer to the Lord in front of all the representatives of the Nation of Israel.

Carla took an old standard and really did a moving dedicated rendition of this song and really showed some awesome respect for its place in Gospel Music! Listen to the Bass how it carries the song, how Carla smoothly glides over the lyrics subtly... awesome, but what was it that made it #1? Listen to the arrangement, ever hear it done like that? incredible guitar work, Good Job Carla... Congratulations on being #1 this month! Oh By The Way ...

The largest jump in the history of this chart and we are 4 years old now. Wow! Sometimes I get a message that says, "I wrote a neat song ... could you check it out?" and I usually do. Well, I got one from Andrew Kwon... and I went to hear the song he asked me to listen to.. good song ... but I clicked the song under it... ooops bad mistake... hehehehehe I got hooked on "Speak of You" immediately, especially when he hit the Chorus ... coming out of the verse...

12.  "Remnant"  by Barry and Teena Winslow   Barry and Teena have had many songs on JB's Charts. Seems they find a way to send out the Word either through your typical avenues or by CD's. They are indeed the Consumate Christian writers of Song.


13.  "Life's a Railway To Heaven"  Jim Sheldon  Great intro using that hamonica and banjo... cool ....  The Month before Last this song was #1 awesome tune Jim ... awesome....  You have a great 2014 and continued success with the TV show!  ... JB

15.  "Free From Me" by Katelyn McCarter ... Alright ..   the intro is haunting, gentle, yet, a strong presence. a lovely song with a very strong message.. and when she goes into the pre-chorus it builds just right and yet the dominant single piano notes still are hauntingly in there!  beautifully done Katelyn.. :) JB


16.  "There's An Answer" by Joe Wamsley Our #11 song has a message.  Joe has an exemplary talent to reach you through the lyrics of his songs and "There's an Answer" is no exception. incredible arrangement, nicely done Joe ... Hey, have a nice Holiday Season. .. JB

19.   "What If"  by  Curtis Wayne Hurley  WE have a double entry this month... Two brand new songs by the same artist.. "What If" nice smooth song by Curtis.. just flows ... I like it.... 


20.  "Reign"  By Curtis Wayne Hurley Our #20 song also by Curtis Hurley is really good. love the piano intro and the switch into the nice upbeat, actually he is using a Rap beat but not in the usual way we are used to listening to Rap.  Hear he is using good hamronies, cool beat, and singing in a cadence, with a Story, a Message to the Song for real... Nice job Curtis. Looking forward to seeing how this song fairs in the Top 20.. It should do really well.  JB


                                               *******Honorable Mentions**********************

21. "As I Bow Down"  sung by Crystal McGaha written by Annette Burrell. what a fresh approach by Crystal. Her crisp voice is a nice pleasant clear voice and the song has a neat message. Love that slide down and back with her voice ... Annette this is a very good song. Looking forward to hearing other songs by the team of C Gaha and Burrell.  Blessings, JB


22. "My Salvation" by Quincy Whetstone Surprise!  I thought this was going to be another RAP song... but Quincy slips in melody, beat, and a good message. Nice Job Quincy... Blessings to you.  JB


Have a Good Month ...  Don't forget to let me know if you have a new song you are getting ready to launch ( ) ... (Don't forget that box that allows the song to be added to the playlists)

                  Please Don't Forget "The Sound of Hope" The kids need the help ...

Are We RaisingThe Bar?

For the last 3 years I and others have been mentioning that we need to raise the bar up with our entries and make our projects the best that we can. It is really happening, let me show you..

 Two years ago to find 5 songs that were all really really good was nearly impossible unless I got in and dug up some turf to find the songs that were hidden in the players of the artists. but now .... look at this!

JB - Thanks for the compliment about my song which was recorded by my daughter Crystal McGaha. To answer you question about my involvement in the song. I wrote the lyrics and had the tune. A friend of Crystal's actually put the music to it.  God gave me the song in several dreams over the course of a week, just over 2 years ago. I am very blessed.

Even though you thought you've never "made it" if you touched one soul with the message of gospel in your song, you have made eternal difference.

It's amazing how God wants to use us and partner with us when He can do it all by Himself. I'm just in awe of His goodness right now. You are being blessing to others as you help people like me to share our gifts. May God continue to use you my friend!

At 3:41pm on March 21, 2014, Andrew Kwon said…

Wow! I'm speechless.....God is so good that's all I can say! Just honored to be in the Top 20 JB!

At 1:35pm on March 21, 2014, Curtis Wayne Hurley said…

I deleted the song and re-added it.  I didn't change the default, so it should work this time.  If not, I got no answers (zero stamped on forehead).

Hi Folks,

Well, James and Marty have lost power to their house in this last snow storm. Pray they will be back home soon.



At 7:22am on February 9, 2014, Barry Winslow said…

Ok JB......sound good.  We have a little Yamaha keyboard.  Looking forward to it.



At 2:29pm on February 8, 2014, Barry Winslow said…

Cool my friend.   Can't wait to hear it.  Wish I had my little studio back....your so right, creating is the fun part.  :O)

You got that right Bro. He is the only way.  I'm, so grateful He knows and cares for me too .

You and Marty have a blessed weekend too.


At 4:01am on February 8, 2014, Andrew Kwon said…

Thank you for the review. I don't think I've ever gotten such a detailed review on my songs, it's great! Yes the intro piano is the main part of the song. Me and a friend of mine who I work with wanted to make the song dramatic so we started the verse in the mid-low area and made the Chorus high, so it would stand out. About the speaking part, I want the world to know that all the beauty surrounding us is made by Him. That there is a God is greater than this universe, and that He is in charge of all things, that He existed even before the world began. I wanted to describe attributes of God. Thank you for the great review, and for helping me share this with my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

At 9:57pm on February 7, 2014, Andrew Kwon said…


Your feedback is really encouraging and I'm honored by your comments! Thank you for listing my song on your playlist and giving your support! It really means a lot that these songs can bless others.

At 6:56pm on January 15, 2014, Barry Winslow said…

Congrats Buddy..............that song needs to be in that slot.  :O)

Amen my friend


At 5:17pm on January 10, 2014, Barry Winslow said…

Awesome's a good tune my friend.  Yepper, we have true soul mates thank God. :O)   They will keep us



At 3:03pm on January 10, 2014, Barry Winslow said…

Hey JB.......hope your feeling better too my friend.  I'm so happy about Remnant hanging in there.  I really like the song.



At 5:26pm on January 9, 2014, Barry Winslow said…
