Song and Sound Instruction Part 1 – Ps Sharon Bendixen (JHB)
Scripture Reference: Revelation 2:7, 17 (AMPC); 2 Corinthians 5:20 (AMPC); 2 Corinthians 5:20 (TPT); Ephesians 5:19 (NKJV); 1 Corinthians 2:9-10, 14 (AMPC); Judges 5:1, 3, 7, 8, 12, 19, 20 (MSG); Judges 5:12 (GNT); Joshua 10:13, 14 (KJV); Ephesians 3:5, 7 (TPT)
Lord, Your name is greatly, Your name is greatly to be feared, Lord. Thank You, Father for what You’re going to say and what You’re going to do here today. You will have Your way, You will have Your say, You will have full sway, Lord. Thank You as Pastor John blessed me this morning in the congregation to bring this message from Your heart, Lord, I am blessed. I declare that I will speak as of the oracles of God. I thank You, Holy Spirit, that You give me utterance. I thank You, Father, as I’ve already prayed that You will flood the hearts, the eyes of the hearts of every person here today with light that they may receive light and walk in your light, Lord. We thank you that the entrance of Your words brings us light, more and more light. We love the light, we believe the light, we come into the light, Lord. Hallelujah. That we may be sons of lights. Hallelujah. That we may be every part light, Father. Glory, glory, Glory. In Jesus’ name we all say this, Father, we say; Amen. Amen. You may be seated.
Hallelujah. So, I will be coming as per Pastor John’s direction from the Lord, I will be coming. I was quite overwhelmed in my preparation of this when Pastor John let me know this week that he wanted me to take the next two weeks to come and minister on this to prepare the people for the sound and song that’s going to be released. And he really just set my mind at ease and said to me, “Sharon, it doesn’t actually matter how long this takes for you to get everything out. God wants you to get out. This is just, be at peace and be at peace. It can take as long as it needs to take.” It’s just the way God is bringing us into the fullness of everything He has for us.
Shoo, I will be bringing my jacket the next time. Wow. It’s very effective. It’s stunning. I just, I just don’t want to talk to you like that. And then you think it’s you, think it’s the anointing or something? Wow, it’s stunning. It’s, I mean, it’s super effective. Thank you, Lord. Really awesome, awesome, awesome.
So, I’m going to start off here, I’m just going to start and I’m just going to go as the Lord has given it to me. So, I’m going straight to Pastor John’s message of the 19th of September; Blow Your Mind with the Truth and Nothing but the Truth. These are the words that he brought, things are changing. It’s a God ordained timetable. Things are changing in the Spirit. And he said that He has an agenda to accomplish in His eternal divine order. Things are changing. I’m not accepting anything for granted that anything that was before must be going forward. I don’t accept that we have to have normal assemblies, whatever that looked like before that it has to look like that going forward. I’m completely focused on finding out what the will of God is, and flowing with that, with the will of God, what the will of God is to actually have what He wants to be different. I’m determined not to be the same. So, there were many things that he said and I have a file at home, which actually Pastor John took from me because he’s having a wonderful time, at five o’clock from five to half past six, because we have that with the people at the office, we have Message Moments, and Pastor John will be taking that tonight. So, he’s taken my other six messages because there are seven glorious messages and I have them all in a file like this. Precious, seven precious messages that Pastor John has brought about Blow your Mind. And that’s just the way that the Holy Spirit has taught me to do it. I have these seven messages, they are eternal. It is God that has spoken them to us. I’m taking it to heart, I’m putting it in my heart, I’m putting it in my mouth, and putting it in my heart. My eyes are fixed on these seven messages. My heart is filled with these seven messages. And my faith comes from these seven messages because it’s what the Spirit of God is saying right now to this Ecclesia and it is the change that He will bring through revelation light. The revelations coming from Pastor John are changing my reality all the time. Glory to God. That is what the message mantle is for – is to bring us into what God has for us. Glory. And sound and song together with sound and song it pierces and penetrates, the sounds and songs from heaven. Glory to God.
So, this is another thing that he said here. In this message. He says; In 2014 I began to pray for Brother Jerry and things began to change in a much quicker way. I want you to take this to say this; great change is coming. But it’s not something you look for outside of yourself ever. It’s something you look to have happen inside of yourself. The great change happens in our hearts, otherwise you’re just a spectator. You’re not a participator. Glory to God. So, when Pastor John says, We are moving in, we’re living in a moment that God has shifted our ministry, shifted our church dramatically, that it will have to move and change and become different. It will have to move and change and become different. What the Lord is meaning there is that we have to change and become different by the messages that God is bringing to us.
So, I am going to go here to show you God’s order and God’s pattern. It’s how it works. It’s just how He works with His churches. He writes to our church at this time and He has things to say to us just as He always has done when He writes to the church in Ephesus. He writes to the church there, He says, the church at Ephesus, 7He who is able to hear, let him listen to and give heed to what the Spirit says to the assemblies (Revelation 2:7 AMPC). Right. And then He writes to another church at Smyrna and it says at the end of His letter to them it says, 17He who is able to hear, let him listen to and give heed to what the Spirit says to the assemblies (Revelation 2:17 AMPC). Then He writes to the church at Pergamum and at the end of His letter that He writes, and every letter that He writes to every church is different. Every letter He writes to every church is different, because it’s His Ecclesia. He has the full right to come and bring every and any message that He desires to bring through a messenger because it’s His church. It’s His church. Right. And so, then He says at the end of every letter, He says, “He who is able to hear, let Him listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to the assemblies, churches.”
So, Jesus is speaking this afternoon. Jesus was speaking in Witbank this morning. Jesus is speaking here, right now. Jesus will be speaking again next Sunday morning in Witbank. He will be speaking again to the assemblies and what He does, what He endeavors to do, is to have written on our hearts the words that He brings to speak, to have written on our hearts. And so, there’s a scripture that says “He has given me the tongue of a ready writer.” I’m a ready writer, I write His words on the tablets of my own heart. I write it with my tongue. He’s given me the tongue of a ready writer. So, that’s what He means when He says, “I will write, I will write on their hearts and put it in their minds. I will put it in their minds and write it on their hearts.” He’s not doing it if you’re not doing it. He is giving you the tongue of a ready writer to inscribe His words with your tongue on the tablets of your heart.
And so, then he said this, he said this, “I want to beg you.” He brought a scripture out of Second Corinthians 5:20 that says this out of the Amplified Bible, 20So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake, we beg you for His sake (2 Corinthians 5:20 AMPC). This is message number six; Blow your Mind with the Truth, it’s in the message. Right? I would just like to share this with you by way of encouragement that there are people that have already gotten just the file just to put the seven messages in. The seven messages; Blow your Mind, Blow your Mind: Terms and Conditions, Blow your Mind: get the Reward, Blow Your Mind with Love, Blow your Mind with Truth, Blow Your Mind with Joy, Blow your Mind with Light. Right? Scriptures that God brought that we’re to inscribe on our heart with our tongue – meditation, looking, eyes looking. We sang that song this morning in Witbank; my eyes are fixed on Your Word. My heart is filled with Your Word. My mouth speaks only Your Word. Glory.
This is God’s way for us all to move with Him at this time. In every message, in every message, there is direction, there is instruction, there is correction, there is revelation. In every message, every scripture that God gives us to bring to you, is breathed by the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah. So, Pastor John said this; I want to beg you for His sake, to lay hold of the divine favor now offered to you. Personally, what this scripture means is there are ways that you and I have lived that are not God’s ways. They are not God’s ways. They are not. They are not God’s purposes, they are not God’s plans. We have lived them. And I beg you that this new thing that God is doing, this new thing that God is doing in our younger generation, he said, there is a grace that is now upon us. There is a flow, there is a grace, there is an inheritance of the Holy Spirit, there is a promise of the Holy Spirit that is here for us. It’s time for us. It’s time for us to change. How do I change? I just told you, I just got through telling us and reminding us again, we change with every message that comes we change. You can have full confidence of that, that if you are having moments, message moments, not just on a Sunday, but during the week. It’s just like this; you can sit and hear the message and even believe it and even receive it but until you put it into your own heart with your own mouth, it’s going to go in the one ear and out the other and out of your life. You’ve got to put it in your heart so that it can exercise its superhuman power in You. You can’t keep sitting here Sunday after Sunday and year after year and not do this. You can’t do that. Your heart will become so hard, and you’ll become so jaded. You can’t, you can’t, you can’t do that at this time. God’s begged you. He has beseech you to change now. It’s time for us to be brave enough and bold enough, to be courageous enough to look at and say, “Yo, in the last 40, 50, 60 years, I may not actually have done the things that I should have done.” There’s no point in getting into condemnation about it. But why could this message or this thing that’s happening now could not have happened earlier? It’s God’s timing for it. It’s happening now and we go with it now. Hallelujah. There’s no point in going back there that can only hold you back there. Let’s go forward with it. Let’s make the change. I beg you to take the favor that’s here now. Glory to God. And then he read this out of The Passion Translation, 20We are ambassadors of the Anointed One who carry the message of Christ to the world, as though God were tenderly pleading with them directly through our lips. So we tenderly plead with you on Christ’s behalf (2 Corinthians 5:20 TPT). Glory, glory, glory. Hallelujah. I say to you, don’t let this moment pass you by. Don’t let this grace that God is giving us this grace that is coming to you, don’t allow it to have no effect on your life. This is a moment for you to let it impact you. Let it impact you. Let it impact you. And we say; yes, Lord. We say; yes, Lord. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.
So, the Lord – let me just find it here – spoke to me just recently, to begin to prepare His people for sound, songs and sound that will now be released. Glory to God. I’ll find it now in my journal. “Prepare My people, prepare My people for the reception.” So, He wants you to receive. “Prepare My people for the reception of these songs, these sounds before it is released. Prepare them through instruction, and bring all the recent, even all the recent, fresh, new things that I have shown you.” Right. So, when I spoke to Pastor John about it, I rest in that, because I know the Holy Spirit will speak to his heart when to bring it. Glory to God.
So, as I’m going to share my personal journey with you of sound and song, song and sound. The Lord requires me to share it for His purposes, for it to speak to the spirit realm because it must speak for his time now, His new era. He has me share some of my personal journey of song and sound, to activate a law, the law of recognition in you to bring instruction and understanding so that you can prepare yourselves to receive the new songs and the new sounds in your spirits. So, these songs and sounds that come from heaven to us, God is releasing them on Sunday, the 24th. He is releasing some of them. Hallelujah. And they will be available from that day onwards, all of them. So, I’m going to share with you now, it’s to bring instruction and understanding to you so that you can prepare yourselves to receive the new songs and the new sounds in your spirits. So, here’s my song and sound journey in the Lord. Pastor John explained it to the Witbank people this morning that this is an explanation of my gift and my calling – part of it – so that there can be a recognition and a cooperation and an understanding that you can roll with God with me. You can roll with God with the sound and song and Jesus’ music ministry.
So, my song and sound journey in the Lord; I was born to my mother and my father in the church. I was born in 1955, on the 24th of February. And I was born into parents that were pastors of a church. My mother and my father, my mother played the piano, and my mother and my father used to sing together at rallies. I remember as a little girl going to the AFM rallies, they would call them rallies, not conventions. And my mom and my dad, I would travel with them in the car, and they would practice in the car, and they would sing together, beautiful together. And then I remember when I was little, my mother teaching me songs. She didn’t teach me how to sing but she taught me songs. And then she’d put me in the front of the congregation to sing. I’ll never forget it because I would want to just pass out from sheer fear. She’d just teach me at home, she’d play the piano, and she’d say, “Sing the song”. And she’d make me sing it off my heart and then on a Sunday, she’d put me in the front, I remember swimming like this and thinking I’m actually… I think I’m going to pass out. Really, I remember that. So as little, as young as eight years old, nine years old.
I was 24 in 1979, and I had an experience in my car with the Lord. The Spirit of God moved, just moved on my heart. And His presence just came quite strong into the car, and I was listening – while I was listening to a particular singer singing a Christian song, experiencing love for my Father. And I said to Him at 24, I said to Him, “Lord, I wish I could sing like that.” And instantly He said to me, “It’s the song of the Spirit that I receive. It’s the song of the Spirit that I hear, regardless of what ability a person has.” He settled me instantly and I have never, ever been the same since. It matters not to God whether people have vocal ability or not, it matters not to God. I instantly understood what He was saying to me. He said, “It’s the song from the Spirit, it’s a song from a heart devoted to Me that I hear, that pleases Me and that I receive.”
From that time, when I was in 1979, my own singing in the morning, in my private room with the Lord began. Just singing to the Lord, singing in my understanding, and singing in the Spirit, and singing in my understanding, just me and God, just me and God. Very interesting to me that, just recently, He spoke to me again, and He said, “Many people with vocal talent want to sing in the church to be seen, and to be heard. They never sing to Me in the privacy of their home, but they want to sing in the church.” That’s interesting, right? And so, it’s the song of the Spirit and from the Spirit that God hears – God receives and it pleases Him.
So, I also at that time from the age of 24, I started to receive teachings from Kenneth E. Hagin; 19Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, and singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord (Ephesians 5:19 NKJV). I was flowing with that in my own personal time with God every day, every day. I would open the Psalms, speak the Psalms and sing the Psalms -just me and the Lord. Just me and the Lord. Hallelujah.
And so, I also sang known church songs – that where we were planted. There are many songs that I still sing today because I sang them so often on a Monday morning with the Lord, and a Tuesday and a Wednesday morning with the Lord, to the Lord. And I sang it on a Thursday morning to the Lord. I sang that song on a Friday morning to the Lord and I sang those beautiful church songs on a Sunday morning to the Lord. Just me to the Lord. Just the two of us.
And so in 1981 I married John and I’m 26 and I’m still singing in the morning. It’s just how the Lord wanted me to tell you this today. In 1998, so from 1981 to 1998, I’m singing in the morning, I’m singing in the morning to the Lord. Right? Quite some many years, right? And God calls Pastor John to start pastoring. Calls us and I’m 43. And in the year 2000, He calls us to start pastoring. I’m still singing in the morning. Loose involvement, I had loose involvement in music ministry. At that time it was the same pattern, the music ministry that we had in our church as every other church and or assembly. Whoever has some talent and musical ability, please come help us. Please come help us. Help us. Help us with our…. you know, so we have some good talent. Right? So I had loose involvement in the praise and worship group. I remember being very fixed on what I had learned from Kenneth E. Hagin that the songs – a lot of what I’ve learned about sound and song was from Kenneth Hagin because he was a prophet and the music ministry worked with his calling and his flow of the Spirit. I’ll read that to you a little bit later on. He would say that most of the songs sung today and that was then, are full of unbelief. You don’t want to sing to the Lord what you don’t want to say to Him. You don’t want to sow in your heart because singing to the Lord is speaking with melody. Right? And so I would remember the Lord moving on my heart saying, “Go and speak to that person that’s doing, the worship leader,” whatever they called them at that time, “go and speak to them that that song is full of unbelief. I don’t want that song in the church anymore.” So from time to time that would happen to me that the Lord said to me “I don’t want them begging and pleading Me with songs. I want them to sing Scripture.” So I remember being loosely involved in that.
So then, that’s 2002, I’m 45. I’m singing in the morning. I’m singing in the morning, and I’m teaching. In 2011, I’m 54 and I had a massive music, sound shift in me. I was coming back from Prayer Mountain on the plane with earphones on, listening to music. I returned unable to listen to any other music – Christian – for quite a few years. I didn’t understand what God was doing with me. I didn’t tell anybody except my husband. I think I might have shared it with you, Brynn. And so God is saying to me, “I want you listening to this. I want you to have this sound in you”. I didn’t realise that God was preparing me and getting out of me sounds that He did not want to come from our Ecclesia. He was preparing me for this era, for sounds from heaven and songs from heaven to come, which He would use for His purposes in His time, in His new era. Glory to God.
So, now 2015, that’s 2011. In 2015 I had a more radical change in me, a new sound He gave me supernaturally and then I received clear instructions from the Lord to listen only with this sound and shut all other sound out. Obviously, I was going on a Sunday morning to church and enjoying all the nice songs that they were singing, you know, engaging. But in my own time, what He had me listening to was a very particular sound. And so I obeyed even though I did not know where this was going. He was separating me from all the popular sound of the time in His church and I was following spiritually instinctively. He was getting me ready for this time, His new era when He would speak clearly about the sounds and the songs that He wanted in this church.
Tuesday, 28th of March 2017, I’m 63, He speaks to me in the morning. I was just singing to Him. I was singing in the morning, singing in the morning, singing in the morning, and He said to me, “I’m holding you responsible for the spirituality of My music ministry.” That’s it. Clear as a doorbell. “I am holding you, Sharon, responsible for the spirituality of My music ministry” He started to call it ‘My music ministry, My music ministry.’ Do you know that there is music ministry going on in heaven right now? They’re singing. It says in the book of Revelation, they sing the song of Moses, they sing. There is great sound and great song in heaven. Right? God has a purpose for it. He is all sound and all song. “I’m holding you responsible. It’s your responsibility. Be more responsible.” I had to go and I had to speak immediately to my spiritual leader to tell him what the Lord had said to me because I know that that’s God’s order and pattern and God would show him what that means. I had no idea. I had absolutely no idea what would follow. It totally, literally blew my mind. I’m being very accurate now in what happened to me on that Saturday morning. It totally, completely, utterly blew my mind. He had no discussions with me about it prior to that, after I had said to him, “John, the Lord says I’m to take responsibility for the spirituality of the music ministry. “ Of course, you know, what the mandate is on us, is what’s the point of being a Christian? Is to be spiritual. What’s the point of being spiritual? To bring heaven to earth. Spiritual music ministry, heaven to earth music ministry. Glory. Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven, our Father, who art in heaven.
So, Sunday, June the 4th 2017, in the Witbank Church, I’m 63. You know that God does not, He does not see age the way the world system does? He has plans, and He has purposes, He has preparations, and He does what He does with His impeccable timing at the right time. Glory to God. Hallelujah. Let me read to you what He said on that day. He made the announcements in the morning in Witbank and then that same afternoon in Johannesburg on June, the 4th 2017. This is important for you to have a recognition to be up to date, so that you know where God is going with everything. How meticulous He’s been in actually preparing for song and sound. My spiritual partner, he said that morning, and co-leader in this ministry must be a witness because of the significance I must release out of my mouth. As of this morning Pastor Sharon is operating in this. She is operating as chief psalmist of this ministry. There we go. I’m not going to read all of it, it’s a lot that he said together in the Joburg and the Witbank church, but he said this; as of this morning, she is operating in this, she is operating as the chief psalmist of this ministry. I never ever called myself that. God never told me about that. He said to me, “I’m holding you responsible for the spirituality of My music ministry in this church.” And then He began to show Pastor John, who then said to me, “I have lived with you for years, Sharon. I’ve known for years that you are a psalmist. You’re a psalmist.” Right, we’ll do some teaching on that as well. We’re all supposed to be… Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in our hearts to the Lord. Right. But God does also have an order of His music ministry. It would be good for you to know at this point in time and I will say it again at another stage, that there isn’t a lot of explanation and instruction in the New TestAment about the music ministry of the Lord Jesus because Paul was following the pattern of the tabernacle of David from the Old TestAment. They were following God’s very clear order, and very clear pattern that David had established. Because in the book of Acts chapter 15, God speaks to the church and says, “I will establish the Tabernacle of David in my church.” And part of that is the order of God in music ministry too and we’re going to look at that. I’m not sure that we’ll get there today but if not today, then definitely next week. Important for you to be taught, important for this to be caught, for your change, for your desire for your change to come through this new, for your new, for your desire for your new to come to you, for God to do a new thing in you through the piercing and penetrating of the sounds that He brings now from heaven to your heart. Right.
So he said; that’s the way a psalmist operates. They’re looking for a sound. The other way you can recognise the ministry of a psalmist is they flow in a prophetic sense, they sing in their worship, and they sing to God. And they often sing out the ways of God and the will of God. You heard that this morning coming out of her. This has been a conversation between us for years and years. But we recognise that as we were building the churches, and as we were preaching in different places, that her teaching ministry was extremely valuable to the ministry. She’s going to be more involved in establishing the ministry of the psalmist in our ministry. So why is this so important? Pastor John is speaking, this is a part of our preparation for where God wants our whole church to go. We want our sound and song – I put sound in song in there because he was still using praise and worship – we want our sound and sound to go to a higher level than we were even at before spiritually. I know that we were being led by the Holy Spirit in prayer, it was a unanimous agreement. We both immediately understood it to be the will of the Lord that this is what Sharon must do now. So, when He speaks, and He leads, we go. There are a few changes happening now and they are spiritual. In Joburg he said, I declare to you that there are things that are happening that are changing. We’re at another time like that right now under the guidance and the leadership of the Holy Spirit we’re going and flowing with God. We are going to make all the changes necessary that God demands of us to make. Pastor Sharon…” Ok, you’ll see less of her at Joburg, he said, this is what the Holy Spirit is requiring from us. This is the order of God for us. But as of this morning she began to operate in the Witbank church as the chief psalmist. Alright, alright. A wonderful thing happened to me when I walked into the service. You see when you’re in your right place at the right time, it’s the order of God. Hallelujah. Glory to God. When your gift functions where it should, it impacts everybody. It impacts everybody. Glory. It impacted Pastor John. “ had this great joy come in my heart because many of you know you have been with us a long time, and this is not the first time I have spoken this over Sharon’s life or for that matter, God. But the fullness of time has come and now we are obedient. What a liberty I experienced in the flow of the Spirit of God today – I was just in heaven, that is all I can say. So, Sharon has a good voice, but there are many who have a much better voice than she, even in our church. But there is an accuracy of the flow of the Holy Spirit that she brings in worship that comes from her own intimacy of her own time with God, and it is much more valuable than anything else that anyone else can bring. She brings that into the whole worship team. I am expecting that all of what we are going to be experiencing as a ministry to go to greater levels. Glory to God.
And then I received this too from a person that Pastor John and I recognised, but it was what was said through her from God that I heard. “You bring a weightiness and a dimension of the Spirit that I have never ever felt.” Heritage of Faith people, if you have a familiarity with everything that has ever been going on with Pastor John and I, you are in danger of not recognising what I am saying today. You are in danger. You are in danger. I had someone share with me during this week that when Ester shared from the pulpit about how desperate she was to see who Pastor John was to her, and how God encountered her to show her, that her whole world changed. You heard that. And I heard someone say to me when they heard her say that, they realised, and they had been there much longer than Esther, that they realised that they actually had no idea about who Pastor John was supposed to be to them. Someone that has been for a long time and how she began to cry out to God and called to God because Pastor John is not the same person that he was last week. He is undergoing dramatic change by the Holy Ghost on his insides, in his innermost man. Right? And so, it is spiritually discerned and let me read something to you along these lines from Scripture and let Scripture speak to you about this, what is happening here. 9What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him, Heritage of Faith church, 10Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by … His Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:9-10 AMPC). Then it goes on in verse 14 of 1 Corinthians chapter 2 to say, 14But the natural…, if you are going to remain natural and not be spiritual and not hunger and be moved and be strong and be served with these messages, then there will be no change in you. There will be no change because you are not going to change some different, other way from the way I am changing. I am changing by the Words of God that come every time, they keep coming. I do not live by bread alone. I live by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, out of Pastor John’s mouth. I live by every one of those words. Right? Hallelujah. Because God has got a spiritual leader for us that is taking us into our Promised Land, everything He has for us.
14But the natural, nonspiritual man does not accept or welcome or admit into his heart the gifts and teachings and revelations of the Spirit of God, for they are folly (meaningless nonsense) to him. I’m going to read that again. The natural Christian, the natural Christian, the non-spiritual Christian does not accept or welcome or admit into his heart the gifts and teachings and revelations of the Spirit of God, for they are folly (meaningless nonsense) to him; and he is incapable of knowing them … because they are spiritually discerned and estimated and appreciated (1 Corinthians 2:14 AMPC). That’s it, that’s it.
“You sing,” and this is what this person was saying. She said this, “You don’t take away, you interpret the mood of the Spirit so accurately.” No pressure. Lord, that is what I always endeavour to do. I pray that this may be so more fully than ever before. “You’re not afraid to be free. Vocally you don’t take away from the musical sound, you hear what is vocally missing and you step in and do it with boldness. Many have not cultivated the Word and their prayer life at all, and they have a pretty little voice, but it doesn’t carry God at all. Because you have paid the price and put the Word and prayer first place, you will be able to interpret, and bring from heaven to the people the sound of heaven. You sing from your spirit, and it is a different sound. You have an excellent ear. There is a boost and an anointing that you contribute. I have never had it before to this extent.” And this was somebody that still is, has been worship leader in very big churches, probably about forty years. I took note because I heard the Lord speaking through her. I took this to Pastor John, and he confirmed that it is God. So, the Lord said – this was in 2008 that that came to me.
Then the Lord said to me this music ministry that He has delegated spiritual leadership to me, is a military division in His army. My call is to mobilise the army of God. He has called me like Deborah with Pastor John. That’s it. He has called me like Deborah with Pastor John because it is part of obtaining the victories that we are going to get now. I am praying, I am expecting you to be getting insight from this that you’ve never had before. Right? Military division of His army. He has called me like Deborah with Pastor John. I am to arise and sing. Judges chapter 5 verses 1 to 31, you can if you’re interested. It says, 12Wake up, wake up, Deborah! Wake up, wake up, sing a song! (Judges 5:12 MSG) 12Lead on, Deborah, lead on! Lead on! Sing a song! Lead on! (Judges 5:12 GNT). And the outcome of her obedience to God was that the army of the Lord that was fat and sloppy, and let me just see here if I can go here, if I’ve got it here. Deborah, yes here it is. So this is it. Judges chapter 5 out of the Message Bible, also out of the Amplified, also out of the NLT and also the Living Bible. 1That day Deborah and Barak …sang this song. They sang a song. 3To God, yes to God, I’ll sing, Make music to God, to the God of Israel (Judges 5:1,3 MSG). It says, 7Warriors became fat and sloppy, no fight left in them. Then you, Deborah, rose up; you got up, a mother in Israel (Judges 5:7 MSG). And then it says here, and then 8God chose new leaders who then fought at the gates (Judges 5:8 MSG). It is part of 12Wake up, wake up, Deborah! Wake up, wake up, sing a song! (Judges 5:12 MSG) 12Lead on, Deborah, lead on! Lead on! Sing a song! Lead on! (Judges 5:12 GNT). 12On your feet, Barak! Take your prisoners, son of Abinoam! (Judges 5:12 MSG). In other words, it talks about 19The Kings came, they fought… 20The stars in the sky joined the fight (Judges 5:19,20 MSG). There we go, tight, I am going to move right on here with this.
I have reminded you of our spiritual mandate to be spiritual, not to be a natural, non-spiritual one that cannot accept or welcome or admit into his heart. You see, you can’t give mental assent to this. It’s got to be something in your heart that when you’re hearing me speak like this, or Pastor John speak like this, that you’re sitting, listening, fully engaged with the Holy Spirit in your heart, saying, “Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit,” just you and the Holy Spirit. “What are You saying here? I want to get this. I want to get this. I want to get this. I am going to get this. I am getting this. Thank You, Holy Spirit.” That’s how you have to listen. That’s how you have to sit and listen to a message. “I’m going to get this.”
I quote a quote of Pastor John’s that he made in 2015 when he addressed our music ministry. He said this; With many of the songs in the church today, you have an interactive soul experience. You have an interactive soul experience – I feel good, my mind feels good. My emotions feel good, I feel good singing this song, I feel good. I actually feel good with a slow song that I can just love God with my soul, my emotions. God does not want us to have an interactive soul experience with these sounds from heaven. He wants them to pierce and penetrate your heart to change you. He wants it to impact you. He wants them to impact you so that you become a mighty warrior. You become a mighty warrior with Jesus in His time, right now because it’s the church at war. We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers and rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in the heavenly places. And this is one of our mighty weapons. The weapon of high praise, sound, song. Glory to God. We win victories and we win battles with sounds from heaven. We will not be having an interactive soul experience. In fact, I’m going to say something to you now. It’s quite fresh and new. Just recently,the Lord said to me, “Now when you engage, when you engage with those people, don’t soul them, don’t soul them.” He just changed the noun into a verb. He just did that in my heart, I understand what He means. “Don’t soul them. Spirit them.” Glory.
How do you soul people? When you’re emotional, and you say what you want to say and you are having all of these kind of conversations in your home, to your husband and you soul people. You mind them, you emotion them, you will that with your, you mind them, you mental them, you emotion them. Don’t soul them. Don’t soul them. Right? Spirit them. And then He said this to me, “And you’ll find you’ll be totally free.” Because God has been using a one liner with me out of Brother Jerry’s prophetic word for 2021. Just one sentence, He keeps saying to me every now and again. “This is your year to be totally free.” And that’s one of the things He said to me, “Now you stop souling them, you’ll be free. You will be free, Sharon. Don’t soul them. They’re going to soul you but don’t soul them.” That’ll make you alert. They’ll make you alert when He makes a statement to you like that and you bump into the strong souls of people around you that are natural and not spiritual in the church, in the assemblies. They’ll change things in your marriage. I will not soul my husband. I will… He might want to soul me. I’ll not let him soul me. I will bring my spirit life to him because I’m going to help him when he souls me. I will just bring my spirit life because it sets me free. God wanted you to have that for free today, just for free. Brynn, how powerful is that? I was just in my kitchen, just in my kitchen. I believe I was singing a song. Don’t soul, don’t soul them. When they soul you don’t soul back. That’s where you will help them. You’ll help them.
So, after that the revelations then started to come to me thick and fast from Scripture for music ministry. It’s just like, “There we go, Sharon. See here, from the beginning of the Bible, right to the end of the Bible, see songs, see song, see sound, see sound, see song, see song, see sound, see song, see sound, see song, see sound, see song, see sound from the beginning of the Bible to the end of the Bible – revelation.” Revelation just opened up to me and continues to open up to me. It’s going to be very, very, very, very important for you, who are disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, to be understanding what God is bringing here now.
The title of my message today is, Song and Sound Instruction, part one. Song and sound instruction, part one. So, He began then to take ownership of His music ministry in a way that was surprising to me. He began to take ownership of it and show me and that’s how I wanted to be – there is the Scripture and that’s how I want and that’s what it’s for and that and there it is, there, there, there. He began to take ownership of music ministry in a way not like before; masterful. He continues to be so much bright light from the Lord for this music ministry and prophecy began to come to me. Prophecy began to come to me; by divine assign I put a sound in this one by My design. No explanation you need, only My Spirit you heed. Prophecy began to flow for me and much, much more that He has been giving me for His music ministry. Great change came quickly from 2017. So, He gives me instruction, I give Garth instruction and this is how we roll. This is how we roll and so we go all under the authorization of Pastor John, who is the first messenger of this church under the Lord Jesus Christ.
We released Walk in the Light in 2019. We gave all of the proceeds of that as firstfruits to Brother Jerry, you’ve heard Pastor John talk about when Brother Joe told him actually that was quite a significant seed. It was quite a significant seed and the rest can be blessed. Then a Holy Spirit inspired declaration came through Pastor John and I received it like this from the Holy Spirit; The penetrating piercing power, the penetrating piercing power in my new era of song and sound, songs and sounds of heaven. Okay, I’m not going to read all of this to you because it’s available on the website. But some of the things that he spoke under the inspiration; I speak according to your Holy Spirit right now, I believe this was 2018, I command the music and the songs and the sounds that are coming out of this church to go, to go, to go. It will draw people to Jesus that have not yet met Jesus. They will draw, they will come to the sound that they will hear in the atmosphere. It will be a sound they will hear in their hearts, a sound they will hear in their ears. A response to this music that will cause them to fall down and repent and to give their lives to Jesus. That’s born again ones and unsaved ones. They will turn from their old ways and come into the new ways of Jesus. That will begin … this music and the sound and the songs of this music will begin to permeate people of Heritage of Faith, it will begin to permeate. Changes will happen, people will give up their old ways and come into the new. Depression will leave, oppression will leave. I declare, I declare, I declare that songs of light will go and penetrate the darkness of the human mind. The darkness of the soul turned against God. The darkness of depression and oppression, the darkness of all manner of sickness and disease of poverty, religious spirits, it will go forth. I declare it this morning.
So, that is something that you can have. Because my faith for what sound and song can do in me and for me comes by hearing that prophetic word. Faith comes by hearing the Word, you hearing the Word for yourself. Right? So that you can prepare yourself to receive and you in your privacy with the Lord can begin to say to the Lord, “Lord, thank You these sounds are coming now. I’m wanting them to pierce and penetrate me, Lord.” You see, that’s how you prepare your heart to receive these sounds and songs when they’re being released. You say in your heart, “That’s for me. I believe what Pastor John decreed. I believe that. Let them pierce and penetrate me, Lord, and change me and bring me to Jesus in a way I’ve never been brought to Him before. Me, Lord.” What the Lord said to me, “Bring instruction to them to prepare them to receive in their spirit the release of the new songs, and the release of the new sounds.” It is to prepare you for them to have the impact and influence in an imprint on you and us all together. Glory to God.
These songs of Psalms come now because the Lord spoke and gave instruction to me on the 20th of September. I’m going to finish with this. On the 20th September 2019, these songs of Psalms come simply out of obedience to Him, because since I obeyed God to be responsible for the spirituality, because only the spiritual things, we have an interactional spiritual experience with the sounds and songs that are going to impact us and change us. Where was I going to go with this, Brynn? It comes out of obedience to Him to receive instruction from Him. Right. So He said thi,: 20th September, Friday, 2019, it was in the morning, I was singing songs to Him. I was singing to Him. Hallelujah. I was just singing one of my songs to Brynn in the car on the way here. It’s not like it happens all the time because I sing the Psalms out of the Bible. I just sing them but you know, there is one song that comes to me. I think I’ve been carrying it for a couple of years now, maybe four years but then it comes up and I can just sing it to Him. [Pastor Sharon singing] God the Father, God the Son, God the Spirit – this is a song He gave me – three in One. God the Father, God the Son, God the Spirit, Your Kingdom come. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. God the Father, God the Son, God the Spirit, three in One. Just like that, just you and Jesus. You can just sing. You know, and it comes from… It’s just you and Jesus, and you’re going, “Oh I love You, Lord. I love You, Lord. I love You, Lord. Oh, Jesus, I sing to You. I sing to You. I sing to You” [Pastor Sharon singing in the Spirit] I will sing with my understanding. I will sing in the Spirit, Lord. Me, I sing to You. I sing to You.” See? Just like that. Like a little child. Unless we become like little children, we won’t even see the Kingdom of God. Hallelujah. Glory to God.
When I sang that song in the car to Brynn he said, “I’ve heard that song somewhere before.” I said, “Hmm, the Lord gave it to me, I never heard it. But you are an eternal spirit being and you’re hearing an eternal song that He just gave for me to sing.” You know? Praise the Lord. I have this other song too, for probably about 10 years I’ve been carrying it, I never forget the melody, because He gives it to you. He kind of imprints it on your heart. I remember at the time singing it to some people and they said, “Oh, we know that song, we’ve heard that song.” Okay, it’s resounding like that in you, that’s wonderful. [Pastor Sharon singing] Lord, I’m standing in Your presence. Lord I’m standing in Your love, and I lift my hands in reverence to You enthroned above. Lord, You’re raining down Your mercy and You’re pouring out Your grace. And I’m changed into Your likeness as I behold Your face. It’s all God, He gave that whole song to me. It sounds like I learnt it somewhere, right? Rain on me, Lord. Pour out Your Spirit. Rain in me, Lord. I want to be like You. Hallelujah. See, why is God doing all of this for you today? So you can do it too. So you can do it too. Because you just see the Psalms are full of it. Sing to the Lord a new song, sing. He means what He says; “Sing to Me a new song. Something fresh, something new. Sing to Me because you can. Sing to Me a new song, sing to Me a new song. Sing to Me.” Hallelujah. Glory to God. Sound and song come from God and Babylon has had it far too long. That is another whole teaching, what He recently said to me, “The sound of Babylon, the songs and the music of Babylon has fallen.” You’ll hear them still play, you’ll hear them still make their way, but God has found Ecclesia that will bring sounds from heaven and He will occupy the spirit realm dimensions with His sound. God is now occupying the spirit realm dimensions with His sound. So, no longer will Babylon imprint and impact because God is finding an obedience where He can bring His sound and His songs into the very atmosphere. He is occupying now. He is just that smart that He can do it just like that. I’ll teach you that. But so, that’s why the Psalms are coming and I am wrapping up now.
A word from the Lord, “Sing the Psalms, Sharon and heaven will come.” He was speaking about corporately now. Legacy will be transferred. You must work with Garth, together with him. This legacy transfer is eternal and from heaven and of heaven.” You see one day when you’re in heaven, you’ll find out, if you didn’t find out about it now on earth, and you’re not believing what I’m saying to you today. You will find out about it in heaven of what God was able to accomplish in the realm of the Spirit. Because an obedience was given by a particular Ecclesia to bring His sounds into the spiritual atmosphere. You will hear… this is what God is doing and unfolding here now in Heritage of Faith ministry, music ministry is eternal. It comes from heaven. It’s going to the heavenlies. It just is what is happening right now. “This legacy transfer is eternal and from heaven and of heaven. John’s obedience to me has opened up the spirit realm for this.” Past, present, and future merge now, at this time in us. Time as we know it stands still now, for us. God has given us this time, this specific time, to obey Him in, just like He did with Joshua it says, 13And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed … 14And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the Lord hearkened unto the voice of a man (Joshua 10:13,14 KJV). That’s Joshua. So He said, “This is the time of the restoration of all things, the very reason Heaven is retaining Jesus – why He is not coming back yet. This is the time of God when God is consummating all things in heaven and on earth, in Jesus Christ. As far as music ministry goes, the years of our fathers now go to our soul. I will transfer music ministry legacy to you as far back as David, if you want it. I said in Acts 15:14 to 18, that I’m restoring the Tabernacle of David at this time. This is only spiritually discerned in the recognition of the time you’re living in now.” Glory to God.
God is revealing things to us that have not been revealed to previous generations. He says that in Ephesians, Pastor John brought that scripture. He’s now revealing things to us that have not been revealed in previous generations.Everything that He’s revealing, He’s revealing from Scripture. This is not any personal interpretation. So it says here in The Passion Translation, 5There has never been a generation … (Ephesians 3:5 TPT). This wonderful mystery which I am describing to you was given to me by divine revelation. There has never been a generation that has been given the detailed understanding of this glorious and divine mystery until now. He kept it a secret until this generation. God is revealing it only now. Brother Jerry calls this present truth. Present – it’s what God is saying now to the church. God is only revealing it now to His sacred apostles and prophets by the Holy Spirit. 7I have been made a messenger of this wonderful news by the gift of grace that works through me. Even though I am the least significant of all his holy believers (Ephesians 3:7 TPT). Glory to God.
Let me pray for you. Father, I pray for your people and thank you for this time that we’ve had of instruction and impartation, Father, so that there can be a wonderful, holy preparation in the hearts of every single Heritage of Faith people to whom the release of these songs and these sounds from heaven now come. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. You are helping us to have a built-in awareness of what’s coming, Lord. Hallelujah. New and fresh in our hearts, Lord. New and fresh in our hearts, Father. Hallelujah.
We thank You for it that You are so loving, and You’re so kind to us, to give us this opportunity to prepare for these sounds to come and pierce and penetrate and change us. I thank You that Your people are blessed. They are so blessed. The Word and the blood of Jesus surrounds them. They are blessed going out now, going home, going into their cars. Blessed going out, blessed coming in. Blessed going out, blessed coming in. Blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed are these people this week, Father. Blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed are these people this week, Father. Blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed, Father. Blessed blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed are Your people in Jesus’ Name, and we all say; Amen. Glory to God. Thank you for listening.
