“And it came to pass…that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well and the evil spirit departed from him.” (1 Samuel 16:23 KJV)
Part of my calling and commission from the Lord is found in this verse of scripture. I have seen this very thing happen hundreds of times as I have played and worshiped the Lord on my violin. Whether it has been in churches or concert halls or big arenas throughout the world, I have seen God come by the anointing of the Holy Spirit with healing and deliverance nearly every time I begin to play music for the Lord and preach the good news of Jesus our Messiah.
I have seen nearly every miracle that took place in the gospels with
my own eyes: I have seen the lame walk. I have seen the deaf hear. I have watched as God opened the eyes of the blind. I have seen cancer healed. I have seen growths and tumors instantly disappear.
In the late 1990’s, I was holding a tent meeting in Cedar Mountain, North Carolina. A young woman who had a tumor the size of a large grapefruit came for prayer. I thought that she was pregnant, but it was stomach cancer! I watched as her stomach just deflated like a balloon! The demon of cancer left her and she was restored to health. I have seen and heard backs crack and pop as Jesus puts them in place and they are healed. I have seen frozen shoulders, frozen wrists and fingers, and paralyzed limbs restored. I have seen cripples get up off of stretchers and out of wheelchairs totally healed. I have seen people come into a service on crutches and then run laps around the church after God healed them.
I watched God heal over 30 people of knee problems in Loveland, Colorado. God recreated kneecaps and every kind of miracle relating to their knees. It was awesome! I have seen crossed eyes uncross. I have even seen the dead raised one time.
I have seen God give brand new hearts to people, new kidneys, new ear drums and recreate backs and knees and shoulders and legs and hips and necks. I have seen nearly every kind of arthritis healed before my eyes.
I have prayed for patients who were dying with cancer in the last stages and watched God heal them. I have watched as a deformed foot from a birth defect in a twelve-year-old girl in Fort Wayne, Indiana was totally recreated before my eyes as I held it in my hands and prayed. I saw her mother start screaming and shouting and jumping up and down as she watched her daughter walk normally for the first time (which the doctors said was impossible).
I have seen a paralyzed and withered hand and atrophied arm completely restored right in front of me on the street in New York City. I had stopped and led a wino on East 86th Street to the Lord during the days when I was studying the violin at Juilliard. When I prayed for his arm and hand that was frozen in place next to his body and green from gangrene, God totally healed it and gave him a new arm. I wasn’t even in “ministry” then.
There are also many other miracles, but these are some that I could think of right now as I am writing. By God’s grace and mercy, I have watched the Bible come to life before my eyes during the past 15 years in the healing ministry of our Lord Jesus. So, I would be hard to convince that God isn’t healing today. I am an eyewitness!
For me, it is just like the Apostles testified before the religious leaders of their day, “For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20). This is what I have seen, heard and experienced in the healing ministry of our Lord. Blessed be His holy name forever!
I have noticed that nearly every time miracles like this have occurred, music and worship have been directly connected with them. Now, we are commanded by Jesus in the Great Commission to go into all the world, preach the gospel, and to lay hands on the sick, and to cast out devils, aren’t we (Mark 16:15-18)? Music is not mentioned here, but worship is our first command from God — it is loving and obeying God with all our hearts!
Music in worship is an expression of our love to God and our love for others. But unfortunately, most of the church doesn’t really believe in miracles and healing. They don’t know how to worship deeply in music and song. Sadly, they don’t even like that part of the Great Commission where Jesus commands all of us to operate in the healing and deliverance ministry as He did. It scares them away and they just want to pretend that it isn’t in the Bible. Some have even been taught that God stopped doing those things a long time ago, so many have been robbed of the supernatural signs and wonders that the Bible promises will accompany the gospel in Jesus’ name. But God hasn’t forgotten how to heal. He is still in the healing and miracle business.
We must be taught in the church to BELIEVE for these things, for Jesus said, these signs will only follow those who BELIEVE for them. You see, when we worship God, He comes and inhabits our praises with His manifested Presence. God created music to worship Him, and then He can come and touch us. God longs to heal and to deliver His people. Will we let Him? Will we actually BELIEVE Him so that He can do more for us and for this sick and demonized world in which we live?
Music can go where just words cannot. Music is instantly understood as the language of the human heart all over the world. It doesn’t need a translator. Music is a connector between the spirit realm and our natural world. It is time to bring great music and the anointing for miracles together in our worship and ministries! When we learn how to yield fully to the Holy Spirit, He can empower us through worship and anointed music to bring healing from heaven to those who need it. He can so anoint our music and worship that it drives out the devil and demons from those who are oppressed and possessed by satan. That is what David did when he played for King Saul. He drove the devil away from him.
I have seen many demons cast out as I play the violin and preach and teach God’s Word. I have watched as demons manifested and were cast out of hundreds of people. Sometimes they leave screaming in torment when I cast them out in Jesus’ name! I have seen a little girl, writhing on the floor like a snake and going in and out between chairs. I commanded the devil to leave her in Jesus’ name, and she screamed and it left. She was totally normal and healed from epileptic seizures from that day forward. She hugged me and smiled and her face was totally filled with peace.
I have seen God drive demons out of thousands of people at once during my playing on the violin in large arenas. Once again, nearly every time, I have seen that music and worship opened the door and
the hearts of these precious souls so that God’s healing and deliverance could come.
I thank God for the mighty weapon of anointed music that opens heaven and the miraculous to us and drives out the devil and all of his work! Let’s begin to believe for these things and watch the Bible come alive before us as we worship and make music before His throne! Amen.
Go into your world with the gospel! Believe God to confirm His mighty Word with signs following! Worship Him with singing and music! The Lord longs to bring healing and deliverance through you also! Let Him anoint you for the miraculous! He is a still a miracle-working God! Worship Him forever!
I knew this would be a year of great Jewish harvest. So far I have four Jewish evangelistic meetings planned throughout the world.
I have to be vague about dates and locations because, just as in the days of Paul, there are those who would try to prevent these campaigns. Please, please pray for these events. After they take place, I will report to you about the victories that were won.
With the coming great Jewish harvest, the church will evolve into its final glorious stage to welcome in the King.
The first stage was the Jewish time. The next was the Gentile age. And just before Yeshua returns will be time of the One New Man, Jew and Gentile together as one in Messiah.
The spirit of Elijah will come upon the church to prepare the way for the return of Jesus (Malachi 4:5). The two — Jew and Gentile — will become one.
The psalmists always prophetically precede the move of God. This is why I have asked Maurice Sklar (see lead article), a world-class violinist, to produce a One New Man Celebration worship CD. When the two glories merge, there is a river of unlimited power and healing. I urge you to order this unique music CD that was created exclusively for our ministry.
I recently gave a message about the following subjects:
What was the first church like?
How has it changed?
Why did it change?
What will the One New Man congregation look like?
God wants this message in as many hands as possible. This is why I will send it to whoever requests it as my love gift to you this month. The anointing was so high when I gave this message that multitudes were instantly healed in their seats.
At the end of the meeting, I prayed for the “Esther Anointing” to come upon the congregation. Deep weeping could be heard going up to heaven as the fire of God descended upon us. I know this same fire will come upon you.
Feel free to reproduce this CD and distribute it to as many people as possible. It is truly the prototype for the glorious end-time church. It is time for miracles to be a normal experience in the daily life of every believer.
This teaching is great preparation for the Great Jewish Wedding and the Millennium celebration!
Blessed Pentecost (Shavuot)!

“I received my monthly partner CD. The CD was in reference to “blowing the shofar,” which brought healing to a gentleman who had lung cancer. I have an aunt who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She had been hurting for four years in her back. She went to the doctor and he indicated she had cancer in that area. She was in severe pain day and night. She was on a lot of pain medication. When I visited her one morning, she indicated she was in a lot of pain. I felt compelled to get the CD of the shofar blowing that I just received from your ministry and to play it for her. I asked her to position herself in front of the CD player. As it began to play and the sound of the shofar began to ring out, she began to praise Yeshua and speak in tongues. This led into a time of praise and worship. After things came back to earthly order, she told me she felt the pain as it left her back. She was no longer in pain and is no longer in pain. She came to our church and testified that the pain was gone after hearing the shofar. We played the shofar that night at church and we are now receiving reports that other miracles took place. Praise the name of Yeshua!”
