‘Call to me, & I will answer you, & show you great & mighty things, which you do not know,’
Jeremiah 33:3.

This verse has recently been calling my name. In speaking it back to the Lord, He has led me to ponder and research musical frequencies, DNA, and many scientific/mathematical dimensions with regard to the arts, healing, and wholeness. That being said, I was drawn to the story of David’s first employment with king Saul as a skilled ministrel/harpist, who when he played, caused a tormenting spirit to leave the atmosphere (see 1 Sam. 16:16-20, 23). However, two chapters later, David plays for Saul as before, but from that point on, Saul has a spear in his hand with intent to kill David (see 1 Sam. 18:10, 19:9).

I asked the Lord to point out specifically what changed? Scripture confirmed it wasn’t David’s relationship with the Lord, his skill or his anointing as a musician. I was led to look at 1 Sam. 18:5-12. These verses clearly indicate that specifically what changed was Saul’s envy of David. Saul’s envy of David led to anger, fear, and hatred, which manifested stronger than David’s skill, anointing, or gifting, when it came to making the tormenting spirit leave. There are significant implications in that revelation alone.

We, however, live in the New Testament age of, ‘greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world’ (1 John 4:4), so I began to ask some difficult questions. Scripture is clear that the gifts and callings of  God are irrevocable (Rom. 11:9), even if the vessel chooses not to use them for the Kingdom of Heaven. David was chosen and known for having a heart after God’s own heart. He also possessed a skillful musical gift and anointing that was initially able to make the tormenting spirit flee. This led me to study the entire background surrounding both Saul and David, and that’s when my ‘aha’ moment came. The context for what I’m about to write can be found in 1 Sam. 9:15-17, 10:1-26).

Saul was God’s choice when the people cried out for a king. God confirmed his choice of Saul through Samuel and through the fulfillment of all Samuel prophesied over him. However, because Saul was lacking in his relationship with God (both in intimacy and reverential awe), he didn’t see himself as God saw him. Saul didn’t understand or believe that he was God’s choice, God’s idea, or Heaven’s solution to Israel’s problems on Earth. Because Saul didn’t have a personal relationship with God (the text indicates it as more of a working knowledge about his religion and clearly not a relationship – 1 Sam. 9:21), he didn’t understand who God was or who He had called him to be, he didn’t believe in his own calling or giftings, and therefore, he tried to lead:

  • without faith and trust in God or holy reverence for Him
  • in his own strength (striving)
  • and greatly influenced by fear, doubt, and the opinions/rejection of others.

This is what ultimately led to his envy, his fear, his disobedience, and the forfeiting of his call as king.

David, on the otherhand, had a heart, an identity, giftings and skills that wholeheartedly belonged to God. David knew God because he spent significant time with Him. He knew he was God’s idea, God’s choice, and he knew his giftings/skills. He daily purposed to walk intimately with God, and to use everything he was and had been given in order to be Heaven’s solution to Israel’s problems, beginning with Goliath. His trust in God was unshakeable, and he knew beyond any doubt that God was both Almighty and Faithful. He didn’t listen to anything anyone else said about or to him, but rather placed all of his confidence in who the Lord was, and what the Lord spoke. David’s faith in God prevailed through most of his life.

David’s revelation and understanding of intimacy, identity, giftings/skills, and the frequencies on Earth being aligned with the frequencies of Heaven, led to his establishing an entire worship institute involving uniquely original, creatively inspired instruments and musicians/singers who were trained/equipped to skillfully release the worship, frequencies, and kairos word of the Lord over the nation of Israel, which brought the favor of the Lord to rest over the nation throughout most of  Solomon’s reign. David incorporated relationship/identity (his intimacy with God) and music (the arts) to release the frequencies of the Kingdom of Heaven throughout Israel 24/7: the worship, the nature, the provision, the will, the leading, the healing, etc. David understood that the frequencies of Heaven released through Heaven’s vessels on Earth were able to transform the atmosphere.  This was pre-cross (1 Chron. 25:6-7, 2 Chron. 29:25-28)!

What lessons can the Body of Christ take away from this? Sons and daughters of the Most High God, through the righteousness of Christ in them, need to be releasing the manifestation of the Kingdom of Heaven wherever it is not visible. When the sons/daughters of the Kingdom of God understand that the Father sees them as His good idea…

  • when they understand that the Father sees them as complete in Christ, desiring them to be in intimate relationship and enjoying the journey of being transformed into His amazing nature of supernatural love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control…
  • when they understand they’ve each been created with gifts/callings unique to each one, and that there is no need to envy/covet anyone else’s gifts, but rather they are to pursue/receive a revelation of their very own gifts and be encouragers of the gifts of others…
  • and when they purpose to learn to develop and use their gifts skillfully for the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth wherever they are called, including and especially both inside AND outside of the four walls of the church…

‘greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world’ will begin to flow out to a world in need in such a way that the things that are not of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth will begin to transform (the tormenting spirits will flee). One of the greatest needs our nation has is to get a new revelation of who God really is, who Jesus really is and living for Heaven on Earth in the nature of our Creator through His Son in this world (all void of religion)…to actually BE His church. Our nation, greatly in need of healing, is groaning and crying out for the supernatural love of God to rest upon us…His peace, His joy, His patience, His kindness, His goodness, His gentleness, His self-control. How does this happen? When His children are in active pursuit of relationship and intimacy with their Heavenly Father and:

  • perceive themselves as the Father sees them in Christ;
  • seize hold of a revelation of who He’s already made them to be through the shed blood of His Son;
  • understand He inhabits His people as they cooperate with the daily leading of the Holy Spirit in their lives…He’s already here, because the Holy Spirit indwells earthly vessels in Christ (increased revelation and awareness of His manifest presence);
  • in that daily journey, the Holy Spirit supernaturally transforms us into the very nature of our Lord Jesus, who came to BE compassion to the poor and broken, healing to the sick, freedom to those in bondage, comfort to those in mourning, and the very Fruits of His Spirit – the frequencies of Heaven – in every life He came in contact with.

When we live intimately and confidently in Him, using our God-given gifts out in the world where He has sent us, His presence/His nature find a resting place…‘every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you…’ (Josh. 1:3).

Let’s take what David understood about intimacy and reverential awe for our Heavenly Father, add to that all the Father has revealed/is revealing about our identity in Christ Jesus and the power of His transforming blood and Spirit, add to that the frequencies…what science and math have already discovered and are discovering…the frequencies of our very being (our DNA)…

and begin to use our music, our dance, our art, our photography, our design, our literature, our speech (yes, when we speak, we speak frequencies containing life or death (Prov. 18:21)…everything we do involves frequencies, as our very own individual DNA plays a unique song that no one else on earth can play), our creative and innovative ideas (which originate with our Creator), and begin to release the very nature of Heaven to manifest on the Earth in this brief, yet very specific season we’ve been given the freedom to BE.
