LISTEN: “Turning Point” (Wayne Bent speaks from prison)
The imprisoned leader of the Lord Our Righteousness Church isn’t letting incarceration keep him from espousing his foreboding pronouncements from his familiar post in cyberspace. A new audio recording featuring the voice of Wayne Bent appeared on the LOR’s Web site today. It sounds as if it was recorded over the telephone.
In this latest recording, the convicted sex offender can be heard for 12-minutes and 57-seconds. Here’s one excerpt:
It seems like ages ago when they murdered my distant cousin, Charles Bent, the first governor of New Mexico. It was in Taos, the same dark town where they murdered me. They beat down his door, shot him, then cut off his head. They hated this new ruler who was over them.
Bent finishes-up his latest message with these words:
Angels now sing their songs, and the sounds of my prison are overcome in the music and melody of my Father. We will soon go away, and men will never behold our brightness again.
The entire transcript of the recording is posted on strongcity.info.
As I listened to Bent’s latest offering, I found myself reminded of a song by the late Johnny Cash. Bent’s oft-scratchy audio and the tone of his message seemed similar to Cash’s spoken words at the beginning and the end of The Man Comes Around (The first 20-seconds of Cash’s tune can be heard here) .
I went to YouTube and watched a few videos featuring The Man Comes Around. The first one included news footage of nuclear explosions, riots and the attack on the Twin Towers (although this video did not include Cash’s spoken words at the beginning).
Next, I went to Wikipedia to learn a bit more about the song I’ve often listened to on my iPod. According to Wiki:
The song is introduced by a spoken portion from Revelation 6:1-2 in the King James Version. This portion of Scripture describes the coming of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, each heralded by one of the “four beasts” first mentioned in Revelation 4:6-9. The first horseman rides a white horse. The musical portion then begins with Cash reciting that a man, presumably Jesus, will one day come to pass judgment. The chorus indicates that these events will be accompanied by trumpets, pipers, and “one hundred million angels singing”.
With such glaring reminders of the content Bent has posted on the Internet over several years, I had to wonder how his song might begin. That is, if Bent were to sing a song aimed at warning the world that he “will one day come to pass judgment.”
