Brian Houston promoting New Apostolic Reformation theology in Hillsong music.

While writing the article, ‘The origins of Hillsong (Part 6): Latter Rain theology in Hillsong worship‘, we were also trying to track down another one of Hillsong’s earlier songs titled ‘Heaven Suffers Violence’. This song was written by Brian Houston and released in 1988 on CLC/Hillsong’s album ‘Spirit and Truth’. (In a future article, we will explain the particular NAR theology behind this song).

This song is not to be found anywhere online. However, we were notified of a Hillsong article and video that was uploaded to Hillsong’s blog, with Brian Houston saying he wrote this song.

Verse 1
Heaven suffers violence
And the violent take it by force
