The Musicians’ Intent & The Audiences’ Permission – HOW do we lead others to THE PROMISED LAND of the Presence of God

I’m excited to share this post on the subject of Intent and Permission as it pertains to musicians, their music and their audience.

I’ve always believed personally in what I am about to share, but was excited recently to have my views confirmed by another writer, almost as if I had written it myself.

I will get more in-depth, but to begin, I share the concept simply: The intent of the musician and their music is hugely relevant to the effect that music has upon the audience. Also, and even more important to me, is AUDIENCE UNDERSTANDING of the musicians intent IS VASTLY IMPORTANT regarding said audience GIVING PERMISSION TO THE ARTIST, allowing the audience to FULLY RECEIVE from the intent of the musician.

Let me make a statement: I’ve been frustrated in the past as a musician when my intent is not received by an audience because the audience comes in with preconceived expectations, whether conscious or subconscious.

Most of these scenarios occur in the context of me leading a church congregation. I have led worship in literally hundreds of churches over the last 15 years and this has given me a unique perspective to voice what I am sharing here. The reality is that American “church culture” does not tend to lend itself extended silence, waiting and contemplation in their worship services. I’m not writing to criticize this. I’m pointing it out as a reality in the church.

So, moving forward… I am, as a musician, drawn to lead people to places in the Holy Spirit that require time, silence, contemplation, waiting in order to RECEIVE what I, from my own experience, have enjoyed. I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE what is required to experience facets of God that cannot be experienced in 18 minutes singing straight through songs.

My journey as a musician began in tiny piano practice rooms at Christ for the Nations in Dallas, TX. I spent a year isolated in these small rooms with God. It was, what I call, my “sheep field.” I was, like David in the sheep fields, ministering to the Lord and being drawn to incredible encounters.

Ok… I’m just going to skip a lot of thoughts and get to a point here…

I have been to incredible places in the presence of God alone with Him. God has called me to re-create these type of encounters for others…

WHAT THIS REQUIRES IS TRUST… Trust from my audience TO BE LED BY ME.

MY CHALLENGE: My challenge is that I am LEADING PEOPLE TO UNFAMILIAR PLACES IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD, OFTEN WITH UNFAMILIAR SOUNDS.

Here is what I am realizing as a prophetic musician who desires to take others to the places I have been with God… IT REQUIRES THEIR TRUST IN ME… IT REQUIRES THAT THEY BE WILLING TO GO TO PLACES THEY HAVE NOT BEEN LED BEFORE.  IT REQUIRES THAT MY AUDIENCE UNDERSTAND MY INTENT AS A MUSICIAN… IT REQUIRES THAT AN AUDIENCE GIVE ME THEIR PERMISSION AND GIVE THEMSELVES PERMISSION TO GO TO THESE PLACE TOGETHER…

Unfamiliarity & Fear… These are the two things that will stop YOU AND I from going to these places in God TOGETHER.

If I try to lead you to a place in God that you have not been familiar with, FEAR COMES TO THE SURFACE… You begin to question my leadership. You begin to question my intent. You begin to wonder what I am doing, why I am using that vocal effect on my mic, why I haven’t said anything for a WHOLE 60 SECONDS.

If I led worship like a NORMAL WORSHIP LEADER, we’d both be safe… I’d get the job done and you’d never feel uncomfortable…

But here is the thing… That’s boring to me and MY CHALLENGE is… I don’t understand why YOU AREN’T BORED YET. I don’t understand why you don’t want to TRUST ME to lead you to VIABLE TRULY SPIRITUAL PLACES IN GOD THE FATHER, JESUS CHRIST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT that I have experienced for years and years.

Listen church and musicians… I really hope this post get out there because I know many will identify with it…

BUT IF NOBODY CHALLENGES THE STATUS QUO… IF NOBODY TRYS TO ENLARGE THE PLACE OF THE TENTS… We are never going to grow. We are never going to mature more fully.

SO WHAT IS MY INTENT?

As a musician, my intent is to LEAD PEOPLE to the still waters spoken of in Psalm 23. My intent is to lead people to experience and Isaiah-like encounter with the throne room of God. My intent is to see people refreshed and healed in the presence of God under the sound and word of God.

MY INTENTIONS ARE TRUE. MY INTENTIONS ARE PURE.

I’m not going to LEAD YOU like your worship pastor does on Sunday because I AM NOT TRYING TO GO TO THE SAME PLACE HE/SHE IS GOING. You have to be willing to GIVE ME PERMISSION to lead you… Otherwise we will never go where God desires us to go TOGETHER.

THE PROMISED LAND…

As a musician, I have often felt like Joshua. Joshua went and SAW THE LAND, but when he tried to LEAD OTHERS to what he had seen, they rejected the notion of going there.

I can’t imagine living for 40 YEARS with a people who denied obtaining WHAT I KNOW IS THEIR INHERITANCE.

So friends, I am letting you in on what it’s like to be me. If you view me as arrogant, I am sorry. This is not arrogance.

I, like Joshua, HAVE SEEN A PLACE. I AM HERE TO TELL YOU THAT WE, AS THE CHURCH, CAN GO THERE TOGETHER. But it’s going to require you to come up OUT OF THE FAMILIAR.

GOD RAISES UP FORERUNNERS to run ahead, check things out, report back, get other excited SO THAT THE TEAM CAN ADVANCE.

I don’t have 40 years to waste.

So I am asking YOU FOR PERMISSION with all the music I’ve ever led and recorded and with all the music that is to come.

I am asking you, “Will you TRUST ME?” Will you allow yourself to believe that I, and many prophetic musicians like me that God is beginning to bring out of obscurity, have been chosen by the Lord TO LEAD PEOPLE TO PLACES THEY’VE NEVER GONE BEFORE.

It requires trust. It requires patience, time, waiting… BUT THE REWARD IS WORTH IT.

PRACTICALS

I think what I have gained recently by this confirmation regarding intent and permission is to make my INTENTION MORE FULLY KNOWN and to BEGIN LITERALLY ASKING PEOPLE for their permission to lead them… Not only does this grant me their permission, it also activates in the audience to engage where I am leading.

What I am discussing here is not going to work in every situation, I understand that. I am excited about creating more venues that give the time to go to places I am talking about.

We are going to be starting a “retreat ministry” facet where we lead people musically to contemplative places in God. We are really excited about this. Some of these retreats will be for an evening, some for a day… I will be sharing about this more soon.

Who Gets the Credit? God or Creation? Or both? Redeeming what the Church has handed over to NEW AGE…

Posted in Frequency, Minstrel, Music, prophetic, Prophetic Minstrel, Sound Releasers, Teaching Series, The Frequency of Eden with tags , , , , , , , , on October 10, 2016 by propheticsoundman

This is the first blog I’m posting in a series of blogs that I will be writing as I progress through my certification process as a CHM (certified healthcare musician). I want to address the topic “Who Gets The Credit” regarding God as creator and His creation that we discover…

I was frustrated by a recent YouTube video that simply dismissed “healing frequencies” in music as both new age and demonic. The man on the video stated to be a musician and a Christian… So he expressed his thoughts regarding “claims” that certain frequencies have been found to bring PEACE to people who sit under the sound of these frequencies. He said that these sounds were literally demonic and the teaching regarding these findings are “doctrines of demons.”

I am saddened by close-minded ignorant viewpoints in Christendom regarding labeling scientific truths as demonic and/or new age.

I will not spend time cutting and pasting the research regarding the proven truths that music/sound/frequency can have a positive effect upon the body/soul/spirit of people.

You can read about David and Saul and find blatantly that the music effected Saul in a positive way…

All that said, here is the big question and topic I want to refer to… DO WE GIVE CREDIT TO THE CREATOR OR THE CREATION? Do we give credit to God and say that God was the one who brought Saul peace when David played the harp? Or, do we give credit to David and the music and the frequency?

MY ANSWER IS… YOU GIVE CREDIT TO BOTH!

Why are some Christians fearfully claiming that frequency teaching is demonic? And if they don’t claim this verbally, many will not promote the use of such sound to induce peace, healing or enhanced state of conscience. To do so would be risky at best.

Back to the YouTube video, the man sharing specifically stated, and I quote. “It’s not the frequency that is bringing you peace, only the Holy Spirit can bring you this peace.”

If I could sit down with this man, I would argue that it’s BOTH the frequency AND the Holy Spirit that is bringing the peace.

IN ORDER TO AGREE WITH ME, YOU HAVE TO ALSO AGREE WITH MY STANCE ON THE NEUTRALITY OF MUSIC/SOUND. You have to agree that music is a tool that can be used positively or negatively.

IF WE MIX HUMANISM WITH THE BELIEF THAT SOUND INDUCES PEACE, then you remove THE CREATOR FROM CREATION and THIS EXALTATION OF FREQUENCY removes WORSHIP OF THE CREATOR FROM WHICH IT COMES…

I get it! I believe exalting creation devoid of the CREATOR is humanistic and is new age…

The PROBLEM IS, THE CHURCH KEEPS ASSOCIATING SCIENTIFIC TRUTH WITH HUMANISM AND NEW AGE AND THEN THROWS IT OUT AS DEMONIC, AS IF DEMONS CREATED IT INSTEAD OF REDEEMING CREATION AND WORSHIPING THE ONE WHO MADE IT AS WE ENJOY THE BENEFITS OF WHAT HE CREATED FOR US TO BENEFIT FROM.

This is what FRUSTRATES MY WIFE AND I… We ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THE CHURCH BEING ROBBED OF SO MANY THINGS THAT GOD CREATED FOR THE CHURCH… YES, in the arts of music and dance as well as other areas of health and wellness…

FEAR ROBS… FEAR KEEPS THE CHURCH FROM EXPANDING…

If the CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST SHOULD FEAR ANYTHING, it should fear being BLINDLY ROBBED OF THE ABUNDANT LIFE THAT GOD WANTS TO GIVE because they threw TOO MUCH OF GOD’S GOOD CREATION in a bin labeled “HUMANISM/NEW AGE.”

Christian… If you label God’s creation as New Age etc… I challenge you that WHAT YOU ARE ACTUALLY SAYING is that Jesus is unable to redeem that sound, that food that whatever it may be… You are handing “said thing” over to the ENEMY and you are basically saying, “Here created being, I allow you to have this.”

We need to mature in this as the church… We really do… We need to quit leading people to fear things that God can redeem in our culture…

Instead of fearing coming in to a meeting where I, as a musician, would tune my piano to 444Hz and sing through a conch shell with reverb on my voice as I try to RE-CREATE the sounds of the heavenly realm… YOU SHOULD BE THANKING GOD FOR THOSE WHO HAVE RECEIVED SUCH REVELATION AND ENJOY WHAT IS BEING BROUGHT FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH THROUGH ARTISTS WHO DO NOT FEAR THE STATUS QUO.

TO CLOSE, I ANSWER MY OWN QUESTION OF “WHO GETS THE CREDIT” – CREATION OR THE CREATOR… I SAY BOTH BECAUSE…

Because when I rub PEPPERMINT OIL ON MY HEAD and my headache goes away, I CAN BE THANKFUL FOR THE OIL as I also thank God for creating it and for giving knowledge to man, that the oil expressed from peppermint leaves is useful for the human body.

SO IT GOES FOR MUSIC/SOUND/FREQUENCY – I can UTILIZE the knowledge that science has discovered regarding implementing music/sound/frequency AND STILL BE A CHRISTIAN… STILL PRAISE THE ONE TRUE CREATOR GOD…

IT BOILS DOWN TO WHAT THE INDIVIDUAL WANT TO FOCUS ON AND GIVE THE CREDIT TO…

Just because somebody is running around in the woods wearing a tunic, smelling leaves, listening to the wind and PRAISING MOTHER EARTH FOR IT WILL NEVER EVER MEAN THAT A BIBLE BELIEVING LOVER OF JESUS CHRIST COULD NOT DO THE EXACT SAME THING AND PRAISE JESUS… IT’S NOT THE METHOD, IT THE MAN! IT’S THE FOCUS OF YOUR HEART!

MAN HAS BEEN REMOVING GOD FROM NEUTRAL PRACTICES AND ACTIONS FOR CENTURIES… CHRISTIAN YOUR GOAL IS TO SEPARATE THE PRACTICE FROM THE NEGATIVE FOCUS (HUMANISM/SATANISM) AND FOCUS ON THE ONE TRUE GOD JESUS CHRIST…

Stop handing the enemy SO MUCH. People are flocking to New Age because the church handed SO MUCH GOOD STUFF TO THEM AND SAID THEY COULD HAVE IT .

I CAN’T… I want what God has for me and my family… And God has called me to wake others up to these realities to re-consider your position on things that CULTURE, NOT YOUR CONSCIOUS, has told you is wrong.

I welcome questions and comments…

It’s Time For A Greater Restoration of the Prophetic Minstrel

Posted in Expanded Prophetic Language, General, Minstrel, Music, prophetic, Prophetic Minstrel with tags , , , , , , , , on May 26, 2016 by propheticsoundman

Welcome to the dawn of a new blog series called The Restoration of the Prophetic Minstrel. Let me jump right in to the why and the what

Let me ask you to do something right now… pull up Google and type in “prophetic minstrel.” Go ahead and then return to this post…

That’s right… #1

Out of 80,000 results, the #1 result is a post I made in 2010…

What does that tell you? Well, I’ll tell you what it tells me…

It tells me that, after being called as a prophetic minstrel 17 years ago, after years writing this blog, releasing music and a book… The ministry of the Prophetic Minstrel is still widely unknown much less understood… And that I personally still have a lot of work to do.

As I’ve just turned 40, I felt a shift in my life and ministry to begin narrowing down specifically what I will focus on over the next season of life and ministry.

I feel that bringing a RESTORATION of the ministry of the prophetic minstrel to the church and the world is a large part of my personal calling and assignment. I’ve spent 17 years figuring out my own personal calling regarding all of this. I’ve travelled the world releasing the song of the Father in churches, coffee shops, homeless shelters, living rooms and more. I’ve learned so many things along the way…

Now is the time to begin reproducing what I’ve learned in thousands of other artists globally. The roots have gone DEEP for 17 years… This tree is about to get huge!

One of the things that has impacted me along my journey, especially the last 5-6 years, has been the interaction I’ve had with many of YOU here on this blog and via social media.

It’s crazy when someone from Australia or the U.K. contacts me because they Googled “prophetic minstrel” and found my blog and they ask me how they can order my book… It’s crazy because the reason I think they are contacting me is because THEY HAVE NOWHERE ELSE TO LOOK, NOBODY ELSE TO CONTACT….

It blows me away to think that I MAY VERY WELL BE WHAT I CALL AN “ACCIDENTAL EXPERT.” I NEVER set out to be an expert in the niche called prophet minstrel, but after 17 years I am humbly accepting that this may very well be what God had in mind all along. He did not just call me to this so that I could sing in living rooms for the rest of my life, hiding away… I think that season is done and it’s time for this to explode onto the scene like the House of Prayer movement did in the early 2000’s.

THE PSALMISTS ARE COMING OUT OF THE FIELDS… THE MINSTRELS ARE COMING TO THE PALACE…

This word pertains to David coming from the sheep field to King Saul’s palace. David left the field as a psalmist and entered the palace as a minstrel… He developed a connection with God in that field that translated into an ability to bring others into the place he now lived, moved and had his being in… David left the field, but the field never left David… That place of devotion was not tied in to a field, it was now in David’s heart and he carried it wherever he would go for the rest of his life…

I’ve been involved in the worship and prayer movement since 1999. I go way back. I remember when IHOP Kansas City met in a double-wide trailer. I’ve been around this for a while… I am saying that to say that these psalmists are not called to the House of Prayer forever… God is calling these psalmist OUT. NOW! Now is the time for those who have been hidden in these sheep fields “TO EMERGE WITH THE REVELATION THEY’VE CULTIVATED” for years now… If we keep this to ourselves for another decade, we are not going to find ourselves in God’s will. That is a strong statement, but I believe strongly that God is calling the psalmists out of the fields and the caves to begin speaking for God through the arts in incredible ways…

YES, IT’S ALREADY BEEN HAPPENING… But this is a new level that is coming.

WHAT’S COMING FROM ME?

Consistency! Writings, video and audio – This is also the beginning of a new book that I will release called “The Restoration of the Prophetic Minstrel”

There are some books that are timeless… Others that are TIMELY… This next book is going to be a catalyst, as will this series of blogs, vlogs and podcasts be…

I’m at 750+ words, so I will go for now…

Thanks for going on this journey with me!

What’s up with 444HZ ? – Fan The Flame DFW Update – Angelic Presence, Word of Knowledge and Physical Manifestation Testimonies

Posted in Carriers Of The Sound, Frequency, Kingdom Study, Music, Sound Releasers with tags , , , , , , on November 10, 2015 by propheticsoundman

album-access_444-hz_the-key-of-david

“The most natural, instinctively attractive, A=444Hz (C5=528Hz) frequency that is most vividly displayed botanically has been suppressed. That is, the “good vibrations” that the plant kingdom obviously broadcasts in its greenish-yellow display, remedial to emotional distress, social aggression, and more, has been musically censored. Thus, a musical revolution is needed to advance world health and peace, and has already begun with musicians retuning their instruments to perform optimally, impact audiences beneficially, and restore integrity to the performing arts and sciences. Music makers are thus urged to communicate and debate these facts, condemn the militarization of music that has been secretly administered, and retune instruments and voices to frequencies most sustaining and healing.”

– See more at: http://medicalveritas.org/musical-cult-control/#sthash.QsKvUy7S.dpuf

Last night towards the end of the first Fan The Flame DFW event, I switched my Keyboard tuning to 444HZ (C5=528HZ)

More is to come regarding this, but 528Hz sound repairs DNA and regenerates us on a cellular level… If you believe, as I do, that God is SOUND, then you may also believe, as I do, that certain sound frequencies LITERALLY RE-PRESENT GOD. I believe we are tapping in and restoring some things that have been lost to common knowledge…

When I began playing the specific note last night, C5=528Hz… THINGS STARTED OCCURRING I CAN’T FULLY EXPLAIN… I began flowing in some accurate words of knowledge… Afterward, we had testimonies… One lady reported having a vision at the PRECISE MOMENT I began playing the 528 note… All of us became aware of the presence of ANGELIC HOSTS in the room… I personally began feeling a TINGLE on the crown of my head that began going down my spine when I began playing this specific note within 444Hz… Another man reported having the SAME EXACT MANIFESTATION at the same time when I played the notes…

I believe that as CREATED HUMAN BEINGS, we were created with a specific resonance, vibrations, sound… And these frequencies that I was playing in last night under the anointing of the Holy Spirit produced an inner awakening in all of us in attendance of a heightened awareness of the God who is sound, the God who is THE LIVING WORD THAT EVEN NOW PROCEEDS…

The Journey Continues… 

As I’ve been blogging on and off for years now on these subjects, I feel like years of study and research are now leading me in to a new season of OPERATION. I am excited to be releasing the knowledge, but KNOWLEDGE MUST LEAD TO EXPERIENCE or it’s wasted… Greek thinking makes us satisfied with knowledge alone. This is a problem! We need to allow our knowledge to lead to experience…

I conclude this post with an excitement to begin ministering with this new knowledge, to see more and more people understand how to be restored, renewed, realigned in the SOUND of the presence of the living God.

Why Am I Naming This Blog “You’re Awesome”?

Posted in Let's Stop Traffick, You're Awesome with tags , , on October 29, 2013 by propheticsoundman

Say “I’m Awesome”

I love my kids. Zoey is 3 1/2 and Phoenix will be 3 months old in a few days! Even before Zoey could talk, I was speaking THE WORD OVER HER LIFE. One of my favorite things to say to her is simply, “You’re Awesome.” When she began to talk, I would ask Zoey to repeat things back to me so that I could develop her speech AND to develop her understanding of WHO SHE IS.

I would say to Zoey, “Zoey, say ‘I’m awesome.'” Zoey would then repeat, “I’m AWSHUM.”

It brings me so much joy to hear my daughter agree with and repeat over herself my thoughts towards her.

This is all an obvious parallel to our relationship with the heavenly Father.

I am starting this Blog with the intents to eventually release my second book which with be entitled… yes… “You’re Awesome”

My daughter has inspired this entire blog and future writing.

Global Identity Crisis

Something I have become even more aware of recently is the current Global Identity Crisis. People simply have no frame of reference for who they are as a child of God. It’s harder in the current culture because of the lack of good, natural, earthly fathers. When you tell people that they have a heavenly Father who love them, they can’t even frame that up in their minds due to the lack of their personal experience with any kind of “fatherly love.”

If we are going to see this crisis absolved we are going to have to begin re-presenting the HEAVENLY FATHER in both WORD AND DEED.

I am choosing to release both expressions. This blog will be a place to re-present the WORD OF THE FATHER in fun, humorous and encouraging ways. (and eventually, the book will accomplish this as well.)

I will also be a part of releasing the Love of the Father is deed though our ministry to the church and to the ends of the earth. For more on this please check out http://www.letsstoptraffick.org – Our ministry partnership with Shores of Grace in Brazil is also a big inspiration for what I am doing here. There are girls in Brazil and all across the earth selling themselves because they have no understanding of a Father who loves them and has so much more for their lives than what they currently know. It’s time to both tell and show them…

I look forward to the many things we will discuss and share here on the second phase of the prophetic sound man blog – YOU’RE AWESOME.

You’re Awesome – Jason

Are you interested in helping Jason & Ann-Marie release the love of the Father in both Word and Deed to children in need? Let’s Stop Traffick is a ministry devoted to rescuing children from prostitution in Brazil. Please consider assisting the Heilman’s to reach these children with a monthly pledge of $10 or more.
