An Epic Tale Told in Crowder’s Crushing Snakes: The Showdown ft Taya

I love cartoons! Good old Tom & Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck and the plethora of characters from Loony Tunes was my cup of tea. Now these are considered ‘old school’ and the term now used is animation or animated movies. So when I discovered the video of the Crowder song, Crushing Snakes – the Showdown ft  Taya, I was over the moon.

A tale of an epic battle, warriors, fight scenes, armies amassed and a resounding victory to the conquering army was right up my alley. The fact that the visuals narrating the song was animation made it even better. When I discovered this great song by one of my loved musicians I was instantly sold.  

Many of you might already know the song and video of which I speak, so kindly bear with me. This will convince newbies why they should not only listen to the song, since the lyrics are crystal clear. Animation lovers too will but agree that the video is worth being considered for development into a full blow movie or series.


We’re not afraid

Terrors of night

Arrows that fly by day

Ten thousand may fall but we

We will remain

We’re not afraid

A promise of God

Can never be torn away

Walking on hands of angels.

Crushing snakes

Safe under the shadow of His wins

Our fortress and our strength

Our fortress

Do you see Him

King of Heaven

Champion of all creation

Do you see Him

Piercing through the sky

Breaking through the darkness

Do you see HIm

The song reminds  believers that we never fight alone and that the battle (such as it is) is already rigged in our favour anyway, but we must take a stand and not give in. Scriptures like Revelations 19:15, 2:16 and Ephesians 4:8-10 were made vivid through the visuals in this video.  

From His mouth goes forth a sharp sword with which He can smite (afflict, strike) the nations; and He will shepherd and control them with a staff (scepter, rod) of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath and indignation of God the All-Ruler (the Almighty, the Omnipotent). (Revelation 19:15).
