Where Do You Stand Song EPK
About the song
This song is about questioning where a person stands regarding their faith. There is a spiritual battle between forces of light and dark or right and wrong. There is an urgency for making a decision for the Lord as the end times gets closer everyday. There are forces in the spiritual realm that battle for a persons soul.
My hope is that this song will encourage Christians that God is our salvation especially when facing spiritual battles.
Battle lines have been drawn.
By the force of right and wrong
There’s a choice you must make
Tugging away at your heart
Oh, Where do you stand?
It is time, the enemy nears
Search your soul and fight all fear
All around the trumpet sounds
The day of the LORD is at hand
Where do you stand?
CHORUS / BRIDGE
There’s a war for your soul
Arm yourself for the day
Angels come in the clouds
All the saints will rise up
Oh the Day of the LORD is at hand
Oh Where do you stand?

John Pape Bio
John Pape is a independent, self managed Christian songwriter who creates worship and praise music for seekers and believers in the church.
John states his mission “My music ministry is to create songs that will encourage a closer relationship to Jesus. The songs are crafted to help Christians though their daily walk. The songs provide a positive soundtrack for people’s lives.”
John’s songwriting drive is to honor God though words and music. His experience has grown over several years of honing the art of songwriting.
Born and raised in California his musical journey began as a young boy. His first instrument was the violin and her participated in the school glee club. As a teenager he got his first guitar. After a few lessons, he basically self-taught himself with a veracious appetite to learn the guitar.
John was going through a spiritual journey which eventually led him to a small store front church where he heard the gospel and by faith believed in the saving grace of Jesus.
At the time of conversion life had to change. It no longer seemed appropriate to live the rock n roll lifestyle. So, for a season the guitar was set down. After a period of time while reading the bible, he read the parable of the talents. Convicted, that he was not using his God given talent of music he prayed. Then leaving his home to take a meditative walk he passed by a piece of paper on the sidewalk. I voice spoke and said to pick up the paper. Turning around he picked it up and it was a song sheet. Not just any song sheet but a Christian song. Realizing that was confirmation he reached out that week to find a Christian band to join. Within a week he was in a Christian Rock band that wrote original music. This band lasted a few years, but the passion to write songs continued. Some early solo releases included “Tunes for Him” and “Almighty Reigns”
Some of John’s musical influences that help shape his songwriting include Chris Tomlin, Benton Brown, Matt Redman. In addition to these influences, John’s sound is shaped by Maranatha Music, Passion, Hillsong and Jesus Culture.
John is also author of the book “Building a House of Worship”. The book was written as a guide to Christian church worship leaders to better minister to the people they serve as they use their gift of music.
Currently John is working on a project to release several new Praise and Worship songs that were written to build and encourage Christians in their daily walk.
Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.1 Peter 5:8
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!2 Corinthians 5:17
