In the landscape of worship music, Yair Levi’s new song “Blessed” stands as a profound testament to the power of scripture and faith. Drawing inspiration from the pivotal verse in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you,” Levi’s composition encapsulates the timeless promises of God to His people.

The Song and Its Message

“Blessed” emerges as a soulful reminder of God’s unwavering faithfulness to Israel and His overarching blessings to all nations. The lyrics beautifully articulate this sentiment:

He is God, His word’s always perfect
God always the same
He is King through all of the ages
His heart has never changed

Not one promise that He’s ever spoken has failed
He is faithful to Israel

He says, I will bless those who bless you
Bless those who bless you
I will bless those who bless you
Through you all the people of this world
Will be blessed

This refrain echoes the divine assurance found in the Bible, serving as both a declaration and a prayer for the peace of Jerusalem.

“I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” – – Genesis 12:3 (ESV)

Yair Levi: A Journey of Faith and Music

Yair Levi, a Jewish Israeli singer, songwriter, and producer from Tel Aviv, is renowned for his unique blend of Jewish soul music infused with faith and biblical values. A descendant of the Tribe of Levi, Levi served as a Major in the Israeli Navy Seals for eight years before turning to music to express his spiritual journey.

Levi’s music not only revives ancient melodies but also bridges cultural and religious divides, fostering unity through shared faith. His notable song “Refa Na*,” written for his ill grandmother, has touched millions globally, showcasing his ability to connect deeply with listeners across different languages and cultures.

Shadow Banned

Despite the song’s pure intention to spread God’s word, “Blessed” has encountered unexpected challenges. According to a reliable report, the song has been shadow-banned due to algorithmic misclassification, which deemed its content as politically charged because of its focus on blessing Israel. However, Levi continues to see the song as a blessing both to him and his homeland stating,

“I was privileged to write the song with people with a big heart and love for the Bible and God.”

This misstep by digital platforms highlights a broader concern where messages of faith and scripture are sometimes inadvertently stifled. Such instances underscore the spiritual battle we face, as highlighted in Ephesians 6:12, where forces seek to silence divine truths.

Ephesians 6:12 (ESV) “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”

Call to Action

In response, Levi and his team are mobilizing faith communities to actively engage with the song on major platforms like Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, and Amazon. By downloading, listening fully, and liking the song, they aim to counteract the algorithm’s suppression and affirm the presence of God’s word in the digital realm.

This grassroots effort is more than just about one song; it’s about sending a clear message that the words of God cannot be silenced. As Levi’s lyrics remind us:

We will love who He loves
Standing with Him
And pray for the peace of Jerusalem

Yair Levi’s “Blessed” is not just a song; it’s a call to remember and celebrate the eternal promises of God. By standing together and supporting this piece, we can ensure that messages of faith continue to inspire and uplift in every corner of the world.
