Music and the prophetic spirit are closely linked. We see in scripture ( 2Kings 3:15 ) that when the prophet was called upon to prophesy he first asked for a minstrel. After the minstrel played he was then able to prophesy. It is evident then from this incident that music by its very nature lends itself in some way to the prophetic. Scripture also bears record to the prophetic nature of music in such passages as 1 Chronicles chapter 25 where King David instructs his musicians to "prophesy with harps, with psalteries, and with cymbals." :The blowing of the trumpet in scripture is also associated with prophetic declaration.
The music of God's people through the prophetic ministry should be a trumpet call to this generation. Music has a unique way of expressing the heart, and the Bridegroom has a passion for His bride that must be captured by those prophetic musicians who time in His presence, (far away from the clamour of the world) to bring the heart of the Father to His people and capture our hearts for Him.
So what is God saying today? "Behold I do a new thing, shall you not know it?" Where then is the new sound? Where is the "thus saith the Lord" in todays christian music? And watchman, "what of the night?" You whose appointment is to "watch and see what He will say to me", whose sound are you listening to? "Come out from the midst of them and be clean, you who bear the vessels of the Lord." Give your ear to heaven, and heaven will lend you her voice, Then the earth shall hear again the sound that mens hearts crave for. Then shall the earth be filled with the glory of the Lord, and none other.
