November 2007 - When Saul was possessed
by an evil spirit, David would come and play
music to drive the duppy away. What is the
role of music in spiritual war?
Just recently, I released a tune called
"Rhythm of the Spiritual Warrior".
It is a heavy Dub tune with lyrics
identifying the spiritual warriors and more
important: what they do.
It goes like this:
I come to chant down Babylon
I come to chant down the Serpent
I come to Dub Down De Dragon
Inna the Name of Yesus Kristos: JAH!
This is the Hardcore Dub
Heavy Heavy Hardcore DUB
This Is The Rhythm
Of The Spiritual Warrior
I come to chant down the Dragon
I come to chant down Babylon
I come to free up the souls of Jah
Once more, once more, once more...
It took me two weeks to create the tune,
and it wasn't because of a lack of
inspiration or something like that. I had to
go through immense spiritual warfare. It
seemed like no method was spared from the
side of the enemy to keep me from working on
The theme of the tune isn't what it is
for nothing, you know...
But why did the enemy take this tune so
serious? How come, after all a musical tune
is just a drum and bassline with some stuff
on top of it, right?
Some years ago, I heard a remarkable
story. Two people took LSD or a substance
like that, and started to play my music. I
don't know which tune or so, and it was a
while back as well, but as soon as the music
started to play they had a life-changing
Expecting to have some kind of
psychedelic experience because of the drugs
and the music, the two sat down and waiting
for what was to come. They did not expect
what was about to follow: it was Yesus
Kristos Himself Who appeared to them!
Obviously, there is a connection between
spiritual things and music.
Just like music plays a part in the
process of healing the soul, raising
consciousness and providing energy for JAH
Children to live another day, there is also
the Rhythm Of The Spiritual Warrior.
It's not just that I can witness this
myself, we can also see it for example when
Rastafarians come together to play the
Nyabinghy rhythm as a part of their
spiritual warfare against Babylon Queendom.
The Bible is full of examples too wherein
music plays a part in the spiritual warfare
that takes place because Satan and his
workers fight against JAH and His creation.
One look to the Book of the Apocalypse
reveals how seven musical instruments
announce the coming judgement of JAH over
the wicked ones, for example.
And what to say about David, a skilled
musician and spiritual warrior who used his
music as part of his warfare against evil
spirits that tormented king Saul? Or the
Israelites using music to break down the
walls of Jericho?
Being the DUB musician that I am, I
obviously use the rhythm of the drum and
bassline in my spiritual warfare too. I have
seen many times, how music broke down the
power of evil strongholds in places where
this music was played. Sometimes with a
band, sometimes alone with a multi-track
recorder, I have seen the "Saul
effect" many times.
Recently, I witnessed how someone was
delivered from a whole set of evil spirits
in several hours. It happened in my studio,
where also people come together to reason
We had been playing music all afternoon,
praising Jah and doing spiritual warfare in
the process. Playing music has an effect on
the soul, which when it's controlled can be
used for spiritual things and that is
exactly what I was doing.
You see, some people might close their
eyes or bow their knees to give their
prayers strength. More power to them, I
would say. For it is a way to use our body
to get our soul in contact with the spirit.
When you are a spiritual warrior and a
musician, it is obvious how music can play a
very big role in the function of spiritual
warfare as the soul of the spiritual warrior
is very important in the process.
We are created in the Image of Jah, the
Trinity. We are created body, soul and
spirit. After we become born again, we get a
new spirit and this spirit is perfect,
because (s)he is born from Jah. Our bodies
carry sin, and carry our individual souls as
Spiritual warfare, the word says it,
takes place within the spirit realm. Our
spirits are the active part of our little
trinity of body soul and spirit. Because our
spirit is connected with the Holy Spirit of
JAH Who also dwells within our body, our
spirits have no need to be taught and are in
perfect communication with the Holy One,
However, we are also soul and body. Our
bodies carry sin and are what the evil ones
call "containers" for our spirits
and our souls. The spiritual battle is
usually because of the soul, too.
And that is where the music enters!
For music is all about the soul. We see
the workers of Satan's Queendom using music
big time, enslaving billions and billions of
souls throughout all times and spaces. Some
even claim, that Satan himself (before he
became Satan, that is) was an angel that had
to do with music!
Music can take the soul to a lower level,
but also to a higher one. Within Reggae and
Rasta Culture, we called this "Ire Ites",
or High Regions, Heights!
I can't really say when I first started
to be aware of the spiritual elements of
certain musical works. But I do know, that
it was around 1994 that I learned how I
myself was a part of this as well.
In that time, a few years before I would
step my first steps in Cyberspace, I was
basically doing nothing but making music and
doing spiritual warfare. Every day, I would
wake up to go to my little "Dub
Room" as I called it, and would start
to make music.
I would make a riddim, then run it
through my mixing board where I would voice
and dub in the same time. I have 100's and
100's of tunes on cassette that I will never
release but they were done in that time.
I noticed, how I worked out certain
spiritual knowledge and insight in the music
itself. Not just in the lyrics, though. The
whole musical work would be dealing with it!
I would for example make a tune about a
specific situation. I would chant words in
the microphone, but I also would use my
hands on my mixing board just like a prayer
warrior would hold her or his hands up high
to Jah for the very same reason: to add
power to the spiritual event that the
Sometimes, these words turned out to be
prophetic. Sometimes, they would touch a
person directly. A small circle of friends
who I shared my musical works with, often
told me about their experiences.
Other times, I would simply be fighting
down demonic presences in and around the
house I was living in at the time. I would
make music with a prayerful heart, I would
fight spiritual battles too.
Around 1994, I even developed my own
style of Reggae and DUB that has to do with
spiritual warfare, and I call it the
"Hardcore Dub" or sometimes
"Last Iwa Steppers" (Iwa= Hour).
The music is intense because of an
unorthodox combination of chords, the drum
and basslines are very militant.
The music takes my soul into a state of
spiritual warfare in such a way, that I can
not do it without music as fast as that. Of
course, I don't need anything to do
spiritual warfare, because my weapon is
Yesus Kristos Himself, but this is the way
He works with me.
Or, to put it more precisely: the way He
lets me work!
The battles and experiences I am
currently involved in, are much harder than
what I was doing back in 1994. In retro-spective,
I can see that I was still somehow in a
"school of musical spiritual
warriors", if you will.
It only had been like 4 or 5 years before
that, that I was delivered from demonic
possession myself. I was possessed from a
very young age, and even though I became
born again in august 1985, it would still
take like 5-7 years before I would be
After being completely delivered, after I
had to cut my dreadlocks somewhere in 1989
because of sins, after realizing I was -and
still am- a Separated One or Nazarite, Jah
told me that it was time to get serious.
I got serious, back then. Of course I
grew my dreads again, because I am a dread
and the fact that Jah told me to cut them
before did not mean He did not want me to
have dreads. He "just" wanted to
teach me that I have to be myself, I have to
walk in accordance to my calling.
My calling is to be a Separated One or
Nazarite, and in my case this means I am a
spiritual warrior who listens only to JAH
and only does what HE tells me to do, so you
can not hire me to do spiritual things for
This is what I was working out in the
days when I started to learn about the deep
connection between spiritual warfare and
music. Especially when this music is created
by a spiritual warrior and destined to be a
tool in spiritual warfare.
Back then, I knew I was fighting against
demonic presences and I also had
supernatural manifestations going on (they
seem to follow me throughout my life), but
little did I know of what I know now.
I didn't know about flying serpents, for
example. Now I see them "all the
time", around people and simply flying
their ways. Flying Serpents are a sign of
the times, and they seem to be first filmed
near Roswell New Mexico, somewhere in...
But I did know, that I was developing a
way of spiritual warfare when I was
developing my "Last Iwa Steppers"
or "Hardcore DUB" style.
I know, especially in retrospective, that
I introduced myself on the spiritual
battlefield as I was -in my music- talking
directly to spiritual entities, and they
In the meantime, over 13 years have
passed and in that time I obviously grew. I
am much more conscious of the power that I
have in my hands so to speak, when I produce
The enemy is aware of this, too.
That is why it took me two weeks to
produce the tune "Rhythm Of The
As soon as I would start on the riddim,
an enormous "cloud" would cover my
house. A cloud with spiritual poison gas, if
you will. It would have an effect that make
me very, very tired. I had to fight down the
effect of the cloud (I have no other word
for it) and fighting it would absorb all my
However, all of this is spiritual warfare
and so I was doing spiritual warfare. It was
obvious, that the enemy and his workers did
not want this tune to be published. And it
was obvious, that Jah had given me the order
to fight them down while I was producing the
The tune is also made as a tool in
spiritual warfare. No, don't think that you
can put the tune on and the demons will
flee. No way. Don't even try to experiment
with it, because when you play with fire
without knowing what you do, you will surely
Don't think you can manipulate the power
in the tune in anyway. Being a spiritual
warrior in the Kingdom of JAH is something
completely different than being a Warlock in
the Queendom of Satan, and the Weapon of the
spiritual warriors in Jah Kingdom is Yesus
Yesus Kristos will not have Himself be
manipulated in any way. So it is HE, Who
decides just what will happen with the tune,
spiritually spoken. You cannot manipulate
Yesus and make Him do what you want Him to
do just by playing a tune, oh no!
On the other hand, I do know that Jah
uses the tune. You see, there is a specific
reason why I produced this tune and why it
is named "Rhythm of the Spiritual
Warrior". And when you come so far in
this article, I think that you really
want/need to know.
The tune is my direct answer to a number
of spiritual warriors who are fighting on
the side of the Queendom of Satan or
Babylon. They are cursing my brothers and
sisters, putting spells on them so that they
will not be able to move forward.
I am talking about serious spiritual
warfare here. It involves spells, and even
covens of witches and warlocks. Some pretend
to be "Christian", maybe some even
think they are "Christian". Some
attack me, others attack my brothers and
sisters who I know to be involved in
spiritual war too.
I knew, that the "cloud" I
spoke of earlier in this article was a cloud
sent to me to keep me from fighting this
battle. You see, my major assignment in this
spiritual war is to free up the souls of Jah
Children. Additionally, I have to assist
other warriors in their battles, as they
assist me in my battles. For we are all
fighting the same war and fighting on the
same side, too!
It happens all the time, and it is caused
by the fact that we are living in occupied
territory, spiritually spoken. When you are
Jah child, doing Jah works, whatever you do
will expose Babylon and Satan for what they
really are. And they feel it BIGTIME,
especially the spiritual warriors.
Yes: Babylon and Satan have their musical
spiritual warriors, too.
One of them even boldly uses the Dubroom
Midifiles and gives them satanic titles,
without permission of course, as true sons
of Satan will do, in a desperate attempt to
curse Jah Works.
Another one will use her coven to put
spells over us. We saw this, too. It was the
"cloud" that I witnessed and it
was also over the heads of some of my fellow
The "cloud" would cause
fatigue, but would also come with
supernatural manifestations in the lifes of
my fellow spiritual warriors and myself.
Even stronger: sometimes there was even a
mention of natural manifestations as
"useful idiots" (to use the jargon
of Satan's spiritual warriors) were indeed
I knew I had to make a statement. A
statement that could be heard in the natural
and felt in the natural, too. The reason for
that is, that the spiritual warriors of
Satan are not able to see spiritually in the
way that Jah Warriors can do.
Satan's warriors think differently than
Jah Warriors and this has everything to do
with the level of consciousness. For a
spiritual warrior on Satan's side, all (s)he
can do is carnal things even when it is done
in the spiritual realms.
A spiritual warrior on Satan's side
usually deals with her or his
soul-consciousness. when they do have a
consciousness in their soul of their spirit,
they will use their spirits to satisfy the
needs of their souls. To them, it is very
much a game of survival.
Satan's warriors fight, basically, for
themselves. They have given their soul to
Satan in exchange for some carnal pleasure,
whatever that pleasure may be, and they wish
to keep their pleasure going on which cannot
be done when there are too much of Jah
On the other hand, they do need Jah
Children too. Satan's spiritual warriors are
usually vampires who fight to survive...
Just like this spiritual warrior on Satan's
Side needs my music in order to exist!
So that is why Satan's warriors will
localize a few of Jah Warriors, and will try
to feed of them. They will try to suck the
energy that Jah gives His warriors, but not
so much that they will die.
All of this is currently going on BIGTIME
in the lifes of some fellow spiritual
warriors and myself.
As said, I needed to make a statement. A
statement, wherein I identify myself, and
also clearly tell what I am doing.
Being a spiritual warrior on the side of
JAH has nothing to do with doing spiritual
ritual to feed my carnal pleasures. It has
nothing to do with showing some
It has everything to do with chanting
down Babylon and the Serpent, and with
liberating the soul of Jah Children.... once
I truly don't know what plans JAH has
with the tune. Really, I don't. I just know
a little bit. I know that tune is and will
be used to free people, mystically. Who,
what, when? I don't know. I just know that
it is dangerous to experiment with it, but
if you love JAH and want to get to know Him,
the tune might just help you getting into a
state of prayer.
Music touches the soul, it comes from the
soul. When our soul is conscious of our
spirit, when our soul is conscious of who we
really are in Yesus Kristos, this music we
play active or passive may just make that
connection kind of clear on the soul level.
One Love, Give Thanks,
