I wrote Sound Of Heaven because I wanted more of God. I wanted to understand God's presence; I wanted to feel the fear and awe and wonder that Moses did; I wanted to see God for who He really was. I started playing drums at the age of 9, desired fame and stardom in the music industry up until the age of 20 or so when I truly surrendered my life to God. Yeah sure I'd been going to church since I was a fetus but actually giving up everything to serve God didn't happen until I left college and decided to just sit in my room and read my bible and take everything I read at face value. And when that happened, I said to myself, "OK I play drums and this is something I love to do, but how do I do this for God?" I had a couple options; I could've gone to my local megachurch and auditioned, or went to worship school, but every single time I fantasized about being the drummer for "fill in the blank" worship, it was like the thought of that being the extent of my worship to God who I had read in the bible not too long ago sacrificed His only Son to take away my sin and redeem me back to sonship, who sits on a throne with myriads of massive angels surrounding Him crying "holy" for all eternity, who descended on a mountain in fire and lightning and everyone either ran away or bowed to the ground because death or life itself was staring them in the face, I just didn't feel like reading lyrics on a screen while I think about my failures and how God is always faithful for 30 minutes, I just didn't see that as enough. Maybe it wasn't enough for me maybe its not enough for Him, but I just didn't see how the equation of who He is plus what He's done equals how we worship. When I hear of people going to the ends of the Earth sacrificing their lives for what we SAY we believe, I just didn't see the connection between that and how we worship in the church today. So back to the original question, if I play drums, how do I do it for God, legitly, like where God would look down and say, "That's genuine, that's how I intended drums and music to be played that's how we do it in heaven, that's what I destined worship to be." And honestly I don't think there's a definitive monolithic answer for how everyone needs to play drums or worship God, but I think the closer we can get to doing things how heaven worships, how heaven acts, and viewing things how heaven views them, the closer we can get to worshiping and understanding God to the fullest. So, this sent me on a quest to find out what heaven sounds like, what God sounds like, how people felt and what people heard when they visually saw God, and I started combing through scripture and lo' and behold there were scriptures that depicted these instances. I then decided to put music to those scriptures and express the emotions via different sounds, timbres, rhythms, etc. But I wanted to make it as realistic as possible. There are too many songs with the lyrics of the different Revelation songs in the bible, or ABOUT the different scriptures, but I couldn't find anything that depicted what it would've sounded like to actually be there. For example, giant metal wheels turning (Ezekiel 1), massive angels' wings moving (Isaiah 6, Rev 4), what would that have sounded like, the doorposts and thresholds of the temple, the fire from the throne, the voice or the very footsteps of God, the train of his robe dragging on the temple grounds or on the sea of glass. What would that have sounded like. I guess for me it was more of an exercise to take me to that actual place than anything else, and when I did I found myself internalizing an awe and wonder of God that I'd never understood before. So here it is; I hope you enjoy it; I hope you can visualize heaven like so many others have. Oh and by the way, before I even contemplated making this, always in the back of my mind was this prophecy that Lou Engle gave at The Call Azusa. He said "the next great awakening will be led with the drums," and I've always wanted to be an integral part in this next move. Are you really still reading this? Anyways, what the Lord has revealed to me concerning this next move is that the drums...let me first clarify..the drums is so broad and enigmatic of a term. It's not the drums we're so used to hearing in worship songs. It's not the boom bap traditional drum beat; it's darker, war-like, deeper, more aggressive. This sound will spark the next and, I honestly believe, the final move of God that will usher in the return of Christ. This sound will bring a judgment on the church. It will separate those who want to follow God into this strange, unknown materialization of heaven on Earth and those who are content and comfortable where they are and shy to His will. It will bring a purging; wherever this sound is released genuinely and in its maturity you will see expedited demonic manifestations because the unclean will not be able to withstand the very heartbeat of God, the very sound of heaven and remain composed. It will bring the physical and visual manifestation of God's presence in gatherings where, again, this sound is being release genuinely and in its full maturity so much so that places that claim to be places of worship but aren't experiencing these manifestations will be considered pagan. People will look to those places and say "surely God isn't there, surely they don't know God," because of how evidently He is revealing Himself in other places. And it will bring healing and vision to the Body. Religion will be torn down and the church age will subside. God will start allowing more and more persecution to churches that are not fully surrendered to Him and will start transitioning to a kingdom age, and era of truth, power, and love, an era of walking with God.
