Anointed Music: How To Receive Information From Heaven Using “The Song Of The Lord”

How to receive song or any spiritual revelation was to pray or sing while accompanied by an anointed musician

We learnt previously that one technique for receiving song or any spiritual revelation (and to usher in the presence of the Lord) was to pray or sing while accompanied by an anointed musician. We saw that Elisha did the same thing in 2 Kings 3: 1-15.

In practice, in order to receive spiritual revelation through music, you should:

– sing while accompanied by the music of an anointed musician
– sing or speak words or phrases that exalt the Lord,
– follow the leading of the Holy Spirit until the prophetic word is downloaded.

You will know that you are receiving secrets when you begin to sing or speak the information that is hidden in God. he words that you receive song will provide the problem is obtained as in the case of Elijah.

I believe that I can safely infer that Elijah was singing out the prophetic word since he had a musician accompanying him. One does not usually speak when accompanied by a musician unless “singing” dub or rap. You can sing without music if there is no musician. The benefits of this technique are limitless since it can also be used during deliverances from demonic oppression as David showed in 1 Sam 16.

Anointed Music: Practical Application Of “The Song Of The Lord” for Worshippers

Using anointed musical accompaniment as a means for ushering in the presence of God and for receiving spiritual revelation

Here is a secret to receiving information and direction from heaven when you have no clue what to do. We learn this from the example found in In 1 Kings 3: 15 b:

the spirit of the Lord came upon Elisha when the minstrel played, “and he said, thus saith the Lord”

This technique of playing music to inspire someone else to download information from another dimesions can be applied by anyone in any setting who wants to know what the Lord has to say. That is, by anyone who needs any kind of spiritual revelation necessary to give direction.

Prophet Elisha’s dilemma

Elisha was facing a real life, practical situation. The king of Israel wanted to know if he should go to war against another nation? Can we recommend this to the President? Does he trust the word of the Lord? I suspect that Elisha mainly used the technique because he was exasperated with the king of Israel and just did not have the energy to give him a word because the king served other idols instead of the true and living God (see verse 13).

Additionally, the Lord wanted it documented in scripture as an important tool in spiritual revelation since Elisha did not use it incidentally. Moreover, the Lord is saying that he used the technique out of due respect for Jehoshaphat the righteous king who was present and had maintained the pattern of using musicians and singers in worship and who had received battle strategy from a Levite who was a descendant of Asaph (2 Chron 20: 14).

Elisha deliberately used the technique of prophesying accompanied by a musician whose music enhanced the download of information from heaven

Singers, worshippers, pastors, apostles, teachers, evangelists, deacons etc can apply Elisha’s technique to accomplish the Lord’s own purposes, for example, when the presence of the Lord needs to come into a place (some places are dry ground) for the salvation of souls, deliverances etc. This is a useful technique for worship teams particularly when the Holy Spirit is moving on the team to sing the song of the Lord in what one can call “free style”:

At these times, there is usually a flow in this direction and the team leader at the time may find him or herself extolling the Lord in short repeated phrases or an entirely new song in some cases.

It is therefore incumbent on the leader to sing what the Lord wants and on the members of the team (other singers and musicians to follow along).
The congregations or listeners should follow the leading of the Holy Spirit on the leader and extol the Lord by either singing what they hear or by repeating phrases that are related to what they hear.

For example, if the leader (s) sing “he is worthy, he is worthy”, the congregation of team can respond with those exact words or with words like “yeah”, “halelujah, halelujah” using appropriate timing if the Spirit leads you in that direction.

SOL-R – Song Interpretation And Expression

What Is Song Interpretation And Expression?

SOL-R, by the way, is the acronym for Spirit of Life Recording Company. We just said a while ago that song interpretation relates to the purpose of the song, the setting, the intended target of the song as well as the mood with which the song is to be sung. We just talked about the place where we are really singing our songs in worship.
Even though we are here on earth physically, when we worship, our spirits are having a dialogue or some form of interaction with the Creator so that we are here, but not here, we are “there”, you know, at the throne of God. That is why worshippers become transformed to become like Him, since, after all, you spend time with Him. This mystery is explained in 2nd Corinthians 3 especially verse 18.

The target audience is important to song interpretation

Let me just give an example of the point I made about intended target of a song. If you are a husband, you should know by now that women are built to hear words of love and that they love to hear them repeatedly. Husbands may not need to hear as much as women do since they are built differently. Now men, your wives would complain bitterly if you tell her “I love you, honey” in a flat voice, and with an expressionless face. This is not a secret, women all over the world are like that. Your wife would expect to “feel” the emotion behind the words and see some sort of expression, excitement and interest when you tell her that you do love her or she will tell you that you don’t. You can keep romance in the marriage if you tell her daily that you love her and act it out even when you don’t feel like it.

God is like that emotionally and He put that part of Himself into women. It is important to know the target of your song since it indeed relates to song expression. The ability to sing expressively will therefore emanate from a personal relationship with God in worship. Enoch the prophet was such a worshipper that he was taken away from the earth. Yes, Jude says he was a prophet and quoted one of his prophecies. He had a relationship with God that was unparalleled since God did not repeat this snatching away except in the case of the Prophet Elijah. He won’t do this again until the rapture of His saints, so be in tune always.
By the way, if you can’t hear His voice as a believer, how will you hear His shout and the sound of the trumpet when He returns (1 Thes 4:16)?

This is a heavenly sound, so it would behove you to get acquainted now in the spirit (some people really do hear them with the natural ear) with the sounds of heaven so that you won’t be left behind. You need to feel the mood of the song in order to express it vocally. Songs to the Lord are rarely sad. He may want meditation (as in Ps 5), jubilation, a celebratory mood, softness, crescendo, loudness, inflections into certain words or phrases that express the word or phrase accurately. For example, if you want to say “sweet”, you will want the word to sound like “sweet” means. Husbands, here are some tricks of the trade, especially when you want to create “The Atmosphere”.

How to create an atmosphere or mood for your song

Check out the application of Ephesians 5. Moods can be created by the application of musical dynamics, attention to diction and phrasing, inflections on words and the anointing that is on the singers as they sing (the latter is another topic in its entirety). When we sing “who is the king of glory?” it would help if one understands the events and scriptures behind the words. Even if one does not, kings are to be applauded greatly. Most of us have never seen a King, so we really do need the scriptures on His kingship and authority.

If He puts a hedge around me, I am yelling in my spirit and singing jubilantly to celebrate triumph over my enemy the devil. My fists will be popping. I will be leaping etc because that is the way my spirit will respond (usually). My physical response to the song depends on the emotion that I am downloading in my spirit as I sing the song. Now I have only used two examples and want you to remember that principles still apply. This is not an attempt to stereotype anyone’s response to the song.

Instructors of song and dance need to study their song and dance as if preparing for an examination. Song instructors should feel out the song, sing it out before teaching it, underline the words and phrases that you want to emphasize. Get the feeling of the song at the throne room. If you are a worshipper, this would not be difficult. Where do you want to express the different musical dynamics? What are they? What mood do you want to create by their usage?
Most of all, one should willingly submit to the leading of the Holy Spirit if He chooses to lead you in another direction or do something new that did not occur to you while the song is being rehearsed.

I have personally found that this is usually the time when much creativity comes and when the greatest anointing and blessing flow. Next time we will talk about biblical examples of song interpretation and expression if the Lord permits. How about telling me about some of these?

Anointed Music: Spirit of Life Recording Company – King David’s musicians

Who were some of the early members of Spirit of Life Recording Company?

In this post I want to talk about David’s musicians who were some of the early members of Spirit of Life Recording Company. King David himself was a member of this label because he was an anointed musician (1 Sam 16: 18 – 23) and a prophet (Acts 2: 29, 30) so he understood how to receive spiritual wisdom and understanding by revelation. How else could you explain his daredevil stunts like killing a lion and a bear with his bare hands (1 Sam 17: 33-37) and killing a giant with a sling shot and a stone? (1 Sam 17). Which one of you would do that? Maybe bungee jumping is “safer”. His brothers thought that he was cocky when he said he would fight and kill a ten foot giant (1 Sam 17).

David knew a God who gave him superior mental boldness and physical conditioning and strength (did he go to the gym?) that made a stone sink through a giant’s forehead and into his brain, causing that giant to topple over like a felled tree. While he was a shepherd, David dreamed of the day that he would establish his own recording company in order to share songs that would usher in the presence of God and reveal His power and secrets to his people. David had received spiritual revelation about what heaven was like and the worship and singing that took place there and I will show this to you later. He also knew how to join the worship there and how to download its music and songs to earth, because his music had power to make demons flee from King Saul (1 Sam 16: 23).

One example, however, is that King David was a designer of musical instruments (1 Chronicles 23: 5) and one of them was the harp. Did he have a vision of heaven like John where he saw the harp being played? (Rev 5:8; 14:2; 15:2). Sorry for those who say musical instruments are for the Old Testament only because you will have to endure them up there. Anyway, rappers (and gospel musicians, producers etc as well), he fulfilled his dream when he became king. That is advantage of being king (in charge). You get to do some creative stuff that you dreamt about or that God gave to you. David was a Jew, so as a Jew, he was obligated to go to the temple (that God told Moses to build) to offer sacrifices for sin. The problem was that the Jews did not know that the temple Moses built was just a pattern of God’s temple/church/tabernacle in heaven and that God was using it to teach them and later the Gentiles something about worship and prayer (say what?).

David knew by revelation that the temple on earth represented God’s temple in heaven because he had seen it, maybe in a vision, although he did not let out that particular secret. His actions, however, spoke louder than his words and that is how we know this particular secret that David hid from his people (maybe he did not want them to stone him. After all, he had to live to be the king). Yes, God has a temple in heaven and we see that in Hebrews 8: 5; 9:11; 12: 22-23 and Rev 7: 15; 11:19; 15:5. Hebrews 8: 5 implies that Moses knew about the temple in heaven as well, but apparently he had not seen it or did not tell the Jews that the tabernacle on earth was just a pattern of the one in heaven. I’m no scholar, but when I read Exodus 25, I found the pattern that Moses built on earth (check out the bling bling in the church building. Can you do that in New York?).

Basically, the temple was really a tent enclosed by a yard. Rev 15: 5; 7: 15 and 11:19 tell about the tabernacle in heaven which was the original of the one God wanted Moses to build. The one Moses built had three parts – a courtyard, holy place and the most holy place. The courtyard surrounded the tabernacle and was entered by one gate (can’t get to heaven except by Jesus). In the yard you would meet an altar for sacrifices and a basin for handwashing. The Holy Place had a lampstand, table with bread and a golden altar of incense. In heaven, this altar is in front of God’s throne (Rev 8:3-5) and it is here that an angel holds our prayers and offers them up with incense unto God, so that He can inhale them and remember us.

This is a natural high (no drugs needed). In addition, the spirits of the saints who were ever martyred are under the altar so tht God can remember them and their murderers (Rev 6:9). The Most Holy Place tell us there is a place in heaven where God sits (Rev 4: 2-5; 5:6; 7:9) since it contained an ark or chest on which rested a mercy seat representing the throne where God dwells. This mercy seat is referred to in Hebrews 4: 16. Two angels were made facing each other on either side of the mercy seat and their wings stretched out to cover the mercy seat. Second Samuel 6: 2 and Isaiah 6: 1- 2 and 37: 16 show that God dwells between the cherubims.

When you read the book of Revelation, you would see that a lot of worship activity takes place in front of God’s throne that we are expected to mimic on earth. Twenty four elders as well as angels fall down on their faces to worship (Rev 4:10; 5:8; 7:9; 12:4); musicians play harps (Rev 5:8; 14: 2,3; 15: 2); worship songs are sung by saints and angels (Rev 4: 8-12; 5: 9, 12; 6:9,10; 7:10-12; 11:17; 14:3; 15:3,4; 19: 1-3,6,7) and people wave palm branches in celebration just as the Jews did to celebrate Christ’s entry into Jerusalem (Rev 7:9).

This revelation is what David received, but I want to ask if you receive this by faith. Do you prefer this natural high, joy and peace that you can get by living in God’s presence or tension and stress by wondering who is going to kill you or who hates you? Come on into God’s kingdom. More to come.

Spirit of Life Recording Company – Whose song?!

We talked a bit about the purpose, source and inspiration of the songs that are received and played by anointed musicians, using those in David’s tabernacle as prime examples. Although David appointed three chief musicians to instruct in music and song, I personally believe that he trained them initially in the song of the Lord […]
