Messiah comes from the Hebrew word mashiach and means “anointed one” or “chosen one.” The Greek equivalent is the word Christos or, in English, Christ. The name “Jesus Christ” is the same as “Jesus the Messiah.” In biblical times, anointing someone with oil was a sign that God was consecrating or setting apart that person for a particular role. Thus, an “anointed one” was someone with a special, God-ordained purpose.
Messiah / You’re Beautiful
This song reminds me of how King David wrote poems and songs of praise to God in the book of Psalms. It is truly a beautiful love song full of praise and worship. It’s also a great reflection song as you enjoy your private time with Christ.
I’m so excited that I’ve come across the voice of Phil Wickham and look forward to hearing more of his music.
