the short of it...
Like Isaiah exsists to shed light on who Jesus is trough song and the teaching of God''s word.
the long of it...
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33
So much to say, so much to tell, where does one start to tell of what God has done. When we look back over the past two years it amazes us to see that God has plan for us and that He actually saw fit to use the four of us in this music ministry. God has taken four different guys with different music tastes and different backgrounds and made a family.
Like Isaiah''s very first show together took place in a small town in middle Georgia during November of 2000, before they were actually known as Like Isaiah. Mike and David had been leading worship at Gordon College for a couple of months when they were asked to lead worship for a youth rally in the area. This was great except for the fact that Mike can''t sing and David plays drums. The great thing about God, is that when He sets something up you can be sure He has a plan. Dylan had started coming to church where Mike and David attended on Wednesday night. Dylan plays the guitar and has a great voice and also happens to be David''s cousin. So David asked if he would want to sing at the youth rally. I bet you never would of guessed, but Dylan said yes and now three of the four members were in place. Like Isaiah was missing a bass player and David and Dylan knew of a guy who actually had inspired Dylan to play the Guitar and David to play the drums. Hugh was brought into the mix and little did we know but this would prove to be the start of something none of us were looking for or would have expected.
We never practiced, and the first time all of us were together at the same time was on that stage that night. The youth rally went better than we could have expected and the four of us kept being asked to play at places. Dylan came up with the name Like Isaiah really because we had to have a name for one of the shows we were doing. The name, which has taken on new meanings for us comes from Isaiah 6. Isaiah saw the Lord and saw that he was unclean. The Lord then sent an angel with a coal to touch Isaiah''s lips saying "See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sinned is atoned for." Then Isaiah heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" Isaiah responded, "Here I am send me." The name Like Isaiah is our testimony that we too were unclean before the Lord in our sin, and He washed it away with the blood of his son who died for us on the cross. Now, because of that we have said to our Lord, "Here we are send us." You see the name Like Isaiah simply means that we were cleansed by God and then commissioned to tell others about him. That is the only reason why we play and that is the only reason why we are worthy to play.
Over the past 3 years God has continue to bless us through many ways. He has inspired Dylan with lyrics that proclaim his name and tell of what He has done for us. He has provided us with a sound and is continuing to strengthen our musical abilities. He even provided us with two great sound guys and sound equipment, courtesy of our good friends Gaylan and Steve who have now become part of the Like Isaiah family.
Like Isaiah is a ministry based band playing were ever God will allow. We have played for a crowd of five and we have also been blessed to play for a crowd three thousand opening up for Caedmon''s Call, Sonicflood, Fortydays, Mercy Me, The Swift, Shane and Shane, Apologetix and Kutless.
