This is the original paper written by Steve Rees and published in Hebrew Roots, a publication developed by Dean and Susan Wheelock. In it, Steve discusses how he came to discover the Scriptural frequencies and their relationship with the pieces in the tabernacle. This musical journey of discovery has been interesting and wonderful and beautiful, but Steve kept wondering if there was more to understand. Was there something deeper than listening pleasure? After all, King David was the master of worship. Part of the reason that he is called by YHVH, “a man after my own heart”, is because he displayed such passionate worship to the King of the Universe!
God’s Power Lines: The Spiritual Dynamics of Electricity
I am so proud of my wife Shirley – She just received the first copies of her new book, “God’s Power Lines”. It has been a year long labor of love and it’s now available from multiple providers. (Shirley receives a better royalty if you order directly from us.)
The music on this CD is transposed directly from the Hebrew Psalms of David. These are the Psalms of Ascent written by David to be sung as pilgrims ascended to Jerusalem for the Annual Feasts of the L_rd. My first efforts at bringing the music of the first three Psalms of Ascent to life were recorded on another album. With this album, I wanted to expand on what we had previously done and add another dimension to it. John and I had played together before and I have always been impressed by his intuitive ability in performing on the Cello. I asked him if he would be interested in helping me with this recording and he was all too willing and excited to join in the effort. My good friend Gene LeSage has helped Shirley and I record several of our albums and his technical ability and purity sustained this project through its development to make sure that it came across with boldness and sincerity. Shirley’s skill in bringing the words of Scripture alive for her hearers also adds to the presentation of this CD set. We have tried to interpret these Psalms according to the message that David has written into each of them. Someday, I want to ask him what he had in mind as he wrote these Psalms. Probably what is here is different than David played, yet I believe that there is something of the essence that he wrote into these works, in praise to G_d. It is our prayer that you be brought into the presence of Most High G_d as you listen and participate with the music of these Psalms of Ascent — and it is our prayer also that you be infected with the anticipation of repeating these Psalms as you ascend to Jerusalem for the Feasts of the L_rd when His Kingdom is restored. May it be soon and in our day!
There are two CDs in this set. One CD is music only for just playing in the background. The other CD has Shirley reading the Scriptures that the music is taken from so that you can enjoy the mixture of the music and words. Each has a unique experience to offer.
