Glenn Crocker was directed by the Lord to write Christian songs hoping to reach them who could be touched by songs of freedom and hope.


Glenn Crocker hails from a rich musical past. He was born into a Lutheran family who were farmers in central California. They were active in the community and his mother was the musical talent. Glenn knew from age 7 what he wanted to do. He wanted to sing, play the piano and write songs. That was almost 70 years ago and Glenn has now written over 200 songs. Until he retired, he was among other careers a studio musician
He formed his first band at 15 and at 18 he took his talents to Hollywood. Glenn was part of the rock and roll revolution in the 60’s and 70’s and worked with many musicians including Warren Zevon and David Marks of the Beach Boys. He was also exposed to a variety of musical styles including Country, Blues, Funk Jazz and Rock. And, you can hear them all in his music.
Glenn moved to the San Diego area in the early 80’s and founded a music school where he taught the advanced students for 12 years.
In 2005 after a divorce and a bout with cancer (now 16 years cancer free – praise the Lord) Glenn moved to Bend, Oregon. He didn’t know anyone there and after two months he felt alone, lost, and rudderless in the sea of life.


Then, Glenn, moving to Oregon and leaving behind the troubles of his life in southern California, he found living in a place where he knew no one. So, this writer asked Glenn, in the first Skype interview a number of questions. What follows is exactly how he responded.

Why are you doing this?

“I moved from southern California to central Oregon 16 years ago after a year of going through a divorce and cancer. I didn’t know anyone here and hadn’t played the piano or written a song for over 2 years. After being here for 2 months I felt very alone and lost. I wondered why I made the choice to move here.

One evening I just broke down and asked the Lord: What do you want me to do with the rest of my life? Within 5 minutes I was back on the piano and a new song was emerging. I thought, well, that makes sense. Why am I doing this? Because, the Lord directed me to do it. I sensed He was not done with me, yet.

And, now all these years and 44 songs later, He’s still giving me new music all the time. And, with today’s technology, it’s reaching people all over the world.”


As, the interview progressed, this writer became so moved to do what could be done to help spread the word to others. Also, helping to elevate the human condition fit perfectly with the purpose Glenn is accomplishing in his music, inspired from our Father.

Glenn Crocker asked the Lord what He wanted him to do with his life. The Answer came within 5 minutes.

Therefore, the interview continued with this next set of questions. Glenn’s responses are represented with little grammatical editing for clarity of understanding.

Who do you hope to reach?

“There are several groups of people I hope to reach. 1) Christians whose faith may be wavering. 2) People who struggle with addiction. 3) Christians who feel they are alone and are fearful of the persecution they are or may be soon facing. 4) As friends share my music with their friends, I hope to help them come to the Lord.”

Do you believe there is a lack of faith?

“There is absolutely is a lack of faith today. Church attendance just went under 50% for the first time in this country. Just look at our society and compare it with Rome in Chapter 1 of Paul’s letter to the Romans. We have sunk to the lows that you read about, there.”

Do you see Christianity under attack?

“YES! There are many forms of persecution. I’m in contact with people in other countries where Christians lives are at risk. In one country, because of the pandemic, people are suffering because of the lack of food, water, and medicine. The people who practiced the predominate religion of the country were given help. But, the Christians were not. This is one form of persecution.

Here, in this country, Christian faith itself is under attack. In some countries just being a Christian can get you killed.

In this country, there’s censorship in the media and social networks. You have to be careful what you say because the cancel culture is real. If they don’t like what you’re saying they just cancel/block you.”


To continue, “God is being taken out of schools and government, so, our children aren’t learning that this country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. My songs, ‘Don’t Let Freedom Down’ and ‘Walking In His Light’ both address this and tell Christians it’s time to stand up and be counted. The silent majority need to un-silence themselves, band together and say, ‘Enough is enough’.”


Now, for all to view: Glenn produces more of his songs with his saxophone friend, Andy.

This writer will add more songs to the article, as they manifest. Thank you for an eternal friendship, Glenn. Thank you most of all, Jesus Christ.


The bass-guitarist, Joe Plass (from Kenny G) plays along with Glenn:

“Let’s work together to get people elected to all levels of government who share our same views and values. Violence is not the answer.”





This author has been blessed, humbled, and honored to be an infinitesimally small part of such a hugely important and eternal part of life, which is our Lord and Jesus. Glenn and I have known each other in social media for a few years now. We both know that nothing happens by accident.

Ultimately, Glenn and this writer knew we were being directed, but we didn’t know when. God did and directed me, as well, to complete the connection.

Please, know that our Lord has plans for each and every one of you, too. All you have to do is ask for Jesus to come into your life. Ask Him, who is our advocate to our Father what is it that we need do and it will be revealed.

Glenn plans to write 2 songs per month. He wants everyone who wishes to share his work to spread the word about our Lord and Jesus Christ.


In all honesty, this writer started the article with the first sentence. Where would the next sentence come? Looked at it for two days. After asking the Lord to help make this right for Glenn, Christians and mankind who seek Him, this all happened in just 3 hours.

Humbling, it is to know Glenn Crocker is a friend for eternity.

Take notice and please heed the content of this article. Bible prophesy is real. Jesus of Nazareth was born on earth and He became the Son of Man. Mary and Joseph of Nazareth made it through the storm of a time where the concept of a virgin birth was not understood or considered possible. Jesus is returning, as He promised.

The time is coming. Nothing happens by accident. We are standing up to warn everyone of what is about to transpire. It is all part of elevating the human condition. This is not part of some conspiracy or cultish situation; it is part of the Truth.

Thank you all for viewing and reading. God Bless each and every one of you.

Extraterrestrials May Exist – Vatican Announcements

Last month, the press was notified, albeit vaguely, that the Vatican would again announce their acceptance that extraterrestrials may exist and it does not conflict with church beliefs. The claim was that Pope Francis himself may make such an announcement. Now, in June of 2015, some claim this may be a rumor since the announcement was not made. There may still be such a possibility with the Pope planning a visit to the United States in September.

In late 2014, I wrote the following article (with educational updates):

In Light of Vatican Announcements 2008 to Present – Extraterrestrials May Exist

In the confession booth the priest heard the parishioner’s request, “Bless me Father, for I have been abducted.” The priest gave the sign of the cross and stated, “Take your Bible and read Ezekiel Chapter 1, verses 4-28, Chapter 2 verses 1-10, Chapter 3 verses 1-15. Then, recite 3 Hail Mary’s and you will find peace. “Thank you, Father, Amen,” responded the parishioner.

There are three basic kinds of persons noted regarding UFO/UAP information: One who has experienced an encounter and knows it was not terrestrial; one who has not experienced an event, but chooses to believe and is interested in knowing more; and one who has not had an experience, does not choose to believe and does not care to know more.

For the record, I am one who has experienced events and knows what was experienced is not terrestrial and the first sighting was in 1967. Some most esteemed colleagues and trusted friends have not experienced an event; however, some who have are not only in agreement, they are promoting this analysis.

Although, I do know some who have not had an experience and do not care to know more, I do not fault these people because the concept of us being alone in the universe has been ingrained in our psyches for the longest time, until recently.

Now, since there have been so many occurrences, events, reports, and history, which not only was the stuff in news, it has become the genre of advanced thought to date, of the increasing belief we are not alone and not only are being visited, but have been for many thousands of years.

There has been a cool flap, “Science fiction tends to become science fact.” I will take this statement further (and this, too is not new), “If you can think it, it can happen. Nothing is impossible except a closed or denying mind.” Scientists, physicists, authors, playwrights, researchers, producers, directors, and others have worked diligently to advance such themes. Something interesting is amiss, would one not say? Within the last one hundred years, increases in technology are hardly measurable to date, is it not? One of the biggest problems has been the creation of fake events and hoaxes to make money. That is where essence of learning is skewed and incorrectly directed.

Now: Faith. Since the earliest thoughts I have had on this subject, one thing has been consistent; faith. It has not been shaken, it has increased. To wit, I would like to propose why the United States and a few other governments are not disclosing that we are not alone, they can’t! Still, in a society of immediate news and instant gratification in many areas, fully 50% of the population in the US alone would still be highly disturbed if it were known we were not alone to the extent there could be a societal collapse to a degree or worse. It is only natural that one of the most venerated and followed religions in the world should be the entity to reveal such a truth. The purpose of this article, for now, is not to expose, contest, or even mention more than has been stated thus far; it is to educate and help promote the human condition as best as can be. Please, think about what is written here. I hope to have kept the concepts submitted to be as simple as can be deliberated, at this point.

[Tweet “A Vatican announcement is in the offing?”]

That was last year, so please note we are in the most interesting of times and, even now, I see the changes in our society of a colder nature. Where is the mutual caring of our fellows. What, again, have the years and testimonials of the past brought us to be? May it be the next blockbuster movie?

Faith is a very personal understanding of the Universal Laws of Being. Faith is also a belief in eternal life that cannot be changed. It is not in any way, shape or form, something that can be destroyed by negative thought or action.

What is most important to know is there is something afoot, or it would not be news. This is my editorial.
