Pressing On Lyrics - Bob Dylan

Review The Song (2)



Well, I'm pressing on
Yes, I'm pressing on
Well, I'm pressing on
To the higher calling of my lord.

Many try to stop me, shake me up in my mind;
Say, "Prove to me that He is Lord, show me a sign".
What kind of sign do they need when it all comes from within,
When what's lost has been found, what's to come has already been?

Well, I'm pressing on
Yes, I'm pressing on
Well, I'm pressing on
To the higher calling of my lord.

Shake the dust off of your feet, don't look back,
Nothing can hold you down, nothing that you lack,
Temptation's not an easy thing, Adam has given the devil reign;
Because he sinned, I got no choice, it runs in my vein.

Well, I'm pressing on
Yes, I'm pressing on
Well, I'm pressing on
To the higher calling of my lord.

....Pressing On is not only a great song, sung by a great person, with dynamic instruments contributing to an awesome atmosphere. It is also, a sermon, like a Psalm of David, expressing the difficulties, and determination to persevere in the Lord, with faith for expectation of a victorious out come, scripturally based.
forgeting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press on to the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 2:13-14
....Why press on? Because the Holy Spirit moved upon Paul the apostle to write those words and be an example for us. (Many are called, but few are chosen Matthew 20:16). One of the biggest ways the devil tries to hinder people who are called to the ministry, is to try to make them think that because they are not good enough (based on their past) they will not be accepted. Well, none of us are good enough, not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And the base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:That no flesh should glory in His presence.(I Corinthians 1:16-27)
....But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. (I Corinthians 1:28)
....take heed, as unto a light that shines in a dark place until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your heart: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 2:19-21
.... Jesus took our sins (past, present, and future) to the cross and paid with His own life to redeem us by His blood. Our part is to live through Him the best we could, and when we fail we are to ...Confess our sins to Him and He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness I John 1:9 Unless you repent, Jesus said, You shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:3)
...Now, we are washed, now we are cleansed by the Blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God, who made atonement for our sins, and even interceeded for the transgressors. (Isaiah Chapter 53, I Corinthians 6:9-11, 7:2)
What kind of sign do you need, when it all comes from within What comes from within? *See John Chapter 3:5:8 For with the heart man believes unto righteousness Romans 10:10 (The Spirit of the Lord lights our spirit and lives within our body which becomes the temple of the Holy Ghost when we are born of His Spirit).
When whats lost has been found meaning fellowship with God was lost, and is found through the saving grace of Gods love for us in giving His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ our Lord to atone for our sins. Therefore, whosoever will come to Him with all of their heart will not perish,but have everlasting lifeJohn3:16-17
Whats to come, has already been. may mean the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is first mentioned in the Book of Genesis Chapter 1:1-2 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Then, through out the Old Testament (Torah) and New Testament: prophets - holy men spoke as thy were moved upon by the Holy Spirit. Just before Jesus left this earth, after He rose from the dead, He said I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it doesnt see Him. Neither do they know Him: but you know Him; for He dwells with you, and shall be in you. (John 14:16-17)
Shake the dust off of your feet, dont look back may be inspired by this scripture in Hebrews 12:1 ...Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
Nothing can hold you down, nothing that you lack may mean he is Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him, endured the cross, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2
Temptations not an easy thing *See Hebrews 12:3-17
Adam has given the devil reign means when sin was conceived in the garden of Eden it brought forth spiritual death, and physical death that was in the seed of Adam. Therefore, because he sinned, I got no choice it runs in my vein is a statement which is true for those who have not had the curse broken over their life by receiving the Lord Jesus for their Saviour. David said in Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. The Lords answer to that is He (our Saviour) was made sin for us, Who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21 ...Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Cor 15:57 For sin shall not have dominion over you. Romans 6:14
E P H E S I A N S Chapter 6:10-18
FINALLY, MY BRETHREN, BE STRONG IN THE LORD, AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT.
PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD, THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO STAND AGAINST THE WILES OF THE DEVIL.
FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST RULERS OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.
WHEREFORE, TAKE UNTO YOU THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO WITHSTAND IN THE EVIL DAY, AND HAVING DONE ALL, TO STAND.
STAND THEREFORE, HAVING YOUR LOINS GIRT ABOUT WITH TRUTH, AND HAVING ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS;
AND HAVING YOUR FEET SHOD WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE;
ABOVE ALL, TAKING THE SHIELD OF FAITH, WHEREWITH YE SHALL BE ABLE TO QUENCH ALL THE FIERY DARTS OF THE WICKED.
AND TAKE THE HELMET OF SALVATION, AND THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, WHICH IS THE WORD OF GOD:
PRAYING ALWAYS WITH ALL PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION IN THE SPIRIT, AND WATCHING THEREUNTO WITH ALL PERSEVERANCE AND SUPPLICATION FOR ALL SAINTS.

I BEHELD SATAN AS LIGHTNING FALL FROM HEAVEN.
BEHOLD, I GIVE UNTO YOU POWER ...OVER ALL THE
POWER OF THE ENEMY: AND NOTHING SHALL BY ANY
MEANS HURT YOU. Luke 10:18-19

AND LO, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, EVEN UNTO THE END
OF THE WORLD. Matthew 28:20

Pressing On is one of my favorite gospel songs, that Bob Dylan sings. Sometimes, it helps to pick me up into the right direction. "Well, I'm pressing on to the higher calling of my Lord!"
