    Endtime Restoration of The Harp in Worship and Intercession

    in Lifestyle

    In these end-times, as God is restoring the Tabernacle of David (Amos 9, Acts 15:16-17) He is again calling for the renewing of the playing of the harp in intercession and worship around the world.

    As a psalmist, Michael is not only a classically trained musician, but he also teaches from decades of contemporary music experience and passionate spiritual insight. His instruction emphasizes technical and theoretical aspects of improvisational music, as well as the release of the prophetic and the “Gifts of the Spirit”. Michael along with his wife Zsiporah (author/singer) are a Messianic couple who challenge artists to a higher level of spiritual and artistic integrity in their work as Directors of the KingsBridge Arts Round Table, a Christian Arts organization based in the Toronto area in Canada.

    Psalm 33:2 Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones; Praise is becoming to the upright. 2Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre; Sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings. 3Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy

    Dark Sayings Upon the Harp

    in The Bible

    David's harp is without solution, or parallel.......fitful spirits seem ever to contend for mastery within its strings.......wailings of sorrow; groans of pain; shadows of doubt, despair, wonder, and fear; all show their face within its music.......enemies of the nation; enemies of the soul rage as if grace were driven away by the surges of passion and grief within.......and so these dark sayings upon the harp rise before Heaven, as the fist of rage in the face of chaos.......


    Man himself, is a dark saying on a harp.......are not we who sing, a universe of being within ourselves, in whom life, nature, and grace combine to make the unique music of our own harps? Man's soul is engraved, as it were, with dark sayings.......chamber on chamber of imagery, covered in mists and hues, they are there; and they are within.......it does seem that we are, at times, possessed of a consciousness, that is more than experience.......it is the music, seeking to resolve the discord within, and express itself in a being of inextinguishable sorrow, separated from his only hope.......and when our harp whispers the music of light,the dark saying on its soul flies before the tone.

  • LOTL The Comfort Zone Welcomes Mariea Antoinette.Debuts Straight From The Harp

    in Music

    Mariea Antoinette  is bringing an entirely unique sound to R&B and contemporary jazz: her soulful harp. Offering a Straight From The Harp:” seduces and sways with refreshingly distinctive sounds placed in a seldom heard context that will change your perception of the ancient stringed instrument. Antoinette partnered with Emmy-winning and two-time Grammy-nominated producer-songwriter Allan Phillips

    The exotic mid-tempo original “Fly Away” introduces Antoinette’s thesis that the ethereal harp can bring exciting new sonic dynamics to urban-jazz grooves. Phillips and Antoinette sped up the cadence on “Rock Wit ‘Cha” while adding celebratory harmonies. Another original, “Slick urban nuances propel Curtis Mayfield’s inviting “Give Me Your Love.” Vocalist Chanel Fields penned “A Single Dance,” an R&B vocal cut decorated with gossamer strands of Antoinette’s sparkling harp riffs. Saxophonist Reggie Codrington contributed a couple tunes to the record, including “Spend Some Time (With You),” a romantic overture that he wrote with Phillips. The ‘70s classic “Boogie Nights” starts with a swinging jazz ride before rampaging through a sweltering workout of exultant booty shaking. “Journey” is the first of two mystical solo harp mediations with the title track being the other. Syncopated R&B rhythms provide the flowing undercurrent for Antoinette to float funky harp flourishes on Barry White’s “I’m Gonna Love You.”.
