The album is well arranged in such a way that its message is clearly passed to the listeners as it carries them along.

When I Met Jesus (The Call and the Trumpet Version) are songs inviting the world to Jesus, letting them know of how much power and freedom are in Him.

Jesus: The Ressurection and The Life Art Cover

There is a beautiful story behind the art cover of the album Jesus: The Resurrection and The Life. The story went like this:

During Nathaniel’s visit to Ikoyi Prison and after ministering to the inmates, one of them presented him with the artwork and the artwork reads “when I was In Prison, You Visited Me – Matthew 25:36”

In my opinion, this is the most touching quote I have ever read, and the reason is not only that it came from someone who is in the prison, but much more than that it captures the perfect picture of what Jesus was preaching in that chapter of the Gospel of Matthew.

The Story Behind The Story

The Biblical story was pictured when Jesus was describing what will happen when the Son of Man comes in His glory with His holy angels where He will be sitting to judge. Then all nations will be before Him, there He will separate them as a shepherd separates sheep from goats.

With the sheep on the right and the goats on the left… people usually feel the left hand side is a bad place and for people going to hell, well in the context of this scripture, it could be so.

So what happens after separation? The Son of Man says to the people on the right hand to come and inherit His kingdom and even told them that it has been prepared for them from the beginning of the world.

This is the original artwork that was presented to Nathaniel Bassey at the Ikoyi Prison

One could ask, what did they do to merit that? Indeed it is a valid question that this entire passage is based on. Jesus said they are counted worthy because of their kind gestures, for when he was hungry, they fed Him, while He was thirsty, they gave Him drink and they accommodated Him, they went as far clothing Him while He was naked and most importantly, visited Him while he was in Prison. This same act of kind gesture was shown by Nathaniel Bassey to the inmate in Ikoyi Prison, and is it amazing how he felt and captured it in his artwork?

Now, if you will let me finish this biblical story, I know you want to download a music album and not story, but won’t you like to know what happened to the guys on the left hand, the goatee people? lol!

Lemme keep this very simple.

It turned out they didn’t show any act of kindness to our Lord Jesus, and that’s why they are on their way to eternal damnation. But wait, isn’t that cruel, I mean who will see Jesus and not be nice to Him… this is Jesus ooo.

You Know what? Baba disguised ni o… He told them, you don’t have to do it to me directly, but as long as you are doing it for your fellow brethren, these little ones that you despise, you are doing the same for me.

If it were a Nigerian scenario, I am sure some people will be shouting wayo! at the back, but you see, this is the parable of the Kingdom and this means a lot to that inmate.

Now let’s get back to our album, shall we?

My biggest surprise and joy on this album is Chris Delvan on the track Let my Life, another one is Tope Alabi on the track Awamaridi alongside Tomi Favoured.

Moreso, we have an international feature on the album in the person of Glenn Gwazai from Zimbabwe, Kaydee Numbere could have been the next, but he’s Nigerian, and he features on the track How Sweet The Name of Jesus Sounds.

The next group of artistes are Nathaniel Bassey’s “homies” which includes Eno Michael on Kore Enye Fonde (For He’s Good), Olumide Iyun once again on the track Resurrection and The Life, Kikelomo Mudiaga on the track Holy Is Your Name and lastly Elijah Oyelade on By The Spirit.

That makes a total of 9 artistes who synergized with Nathaniel Bassey to make this Jesus: The Resurrection and The Life album, can you imagine how powerful the album is going to be?

Jesus: The Ressurection and The Life Release

This album was released on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) King’s Court parish on the Victoria Island of Lagos.

This album comes out after a year and 7 months after Nathaniel’s previous album Revival Flames. I think that’s a good spacing.

Moreover, the time is right, being the time of the prophetic season where the revelation of Christ needs to prevail above all other things in the body of Christ.

Simultaneously, the album was also released on Digital stores like iTunes, Amazon and so on. The album Jesus: The Resurrection and The Life was released under Nathaniel Bassey Music Inc.
