December 1, 2016 - New Doctrinal Discourse -  Justifiable Confidence of Salvation - Usually, when we talk about salvation we do so in terms of assurance.  We believe our salvation is assured, because God has promised it and we want to regard this dynamic as an absolute.  But can we justify our belief that we are saved?  (added to Questions and Doctrine pages).

November 17, 2016 - Latest Bible Study - Genesis - Genesis Chapter 12  "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."

June 10, 2016 - New Audio Study added to Questions and Doctrine page - The Word of God -  When we say that the Scriptures are "inspired" what does that mean and to what extent do we apply that to everything written in the bible? Is the bible a repository of scientific truth?  Should the biblical genealogies be used as a basis for determining the age of the earth?

April 9, 2016 - Revisiting the New Testament Epistles - Romans - Romans Chapter 7 "I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind..."

February 26, 2016 - New Audio Study added to Questions and Doctrine pageSin By Inheritance -  (Link Fixed 3/1/2016) While I strive not to further stigmatize those who suffer from this sin,  I was recently asked to comment on the issue of whether or not Homosexuality could be either genetic or an otherwise involuntary condition.  In this study, I explain how that if Homosexuality is genetic or involuntary, it would only serve to confirm that the behavior is unnatural and undesirable; not only from a biblical perspective, but even more certainly from an evolutionary perspective.

February 14, 2016 - New Audio Study added to Questions and Doctrine page - Promises - I often make reference to promises found in the scriptures the substance of which believers may obtain through faith.  I was asked to elaborate on this subject, and this study is the result.

January 25, 2016 - Evil in the Purposes of God - For many people, the existence of evil is a primary reason for disbelief in God.  I have often heard it said that the bible does not answer the question of evil.   This is not true.  Many do not want to acknowledge the bible's answer to the problem of evil, because it is not the sort of answer that people want to hear.

January 16, 2016 - Revisiting the New Testament Epistles - Romans - Romans Chapter 6 "Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?"

August 8, 2015 - I will be performing some of my favorite songs from the Psalms, the Prophets, the Gospels, the Epistles, and Revelation next week at Evangelical Covenant Church, Des Moines, Iowa.  I'm guessing that's going to be too out of the way for 99% of those who would like to come see my performance.  The event is going to be broadcast live on Periscope. If you want to see this, it would be a good idea to install the app on your PC or mobile device ahead of time.  I'm expecting to perform last.

The discussion went from email to an exchange of audio files.  The dialog has compelled me to push forward on a comprehensive study of the subject which I hope will be complete in the next few months. 

May 7, 2015 - Added to the Questions and Doctrine pages - False Prophetic Trends - The popular prophetic culture of our time is filled with speculators and ear-ticklers.  We need to hold these false prophets accountable for their sensationalistic grandstanding and misleading predictions. In this program, I discuss various false prophetic ways of interpreting the bible.

April 13, 2015 - New addition to both the Questions and  Doctrine pages' audio sections -  Election and Predestination - Two very important words which define our relationship with God.  This is a subject that I have spent a great deal of time considering.  Reconciling the man's perception of autonomy with the biblical facts regarding election and predestination.

April 7, 2015 - Latest audio addition to both the Questions and  Doctrine pages -  Doctrine and Heresy - Heresy is a word used to describe serious deviations from accepted doctrine. Sometimes false doctrine can seem like no big deal, because it is not related to what we would consider a core belief.  In this talk, I explore the ways in which various doctrinal deviations can become problems.

April 2, 2015 - Latest audio addition to the Questions Page - What's the story with The Story? The Story is a fairly recent attempt at condensing the bible so that it becomes easier to read as a unified book.  This is a brief and general commentary on the practice of condensing the Bible since I have very little particular knowledge of this particular attempt.

March 30, 2015 - Latest Bible Study - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah - Isaiah Chapter 11  "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them."

February 9, 2015 - New Audio study added to the "Questions" page - The Seed of the Serpent - Does the Devil have children in this world?  In this teaching I go over the biblical teaching in regards to the children of God and the children of the Devil. While this study was made to combat the influence of Identity teachers such as Arnold Murray and the Shepherd's Chapel, other believers will also find this study edifying. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

December 28, 2014 - New addition to the Questions page: Denominations and Books Not In the Bible - What about the books they left out of the Bible?

Study Changes: As some people know I live in a small house with eight other people.  It is very difficult to find quiet time to record my bible studies.  My computer is in the same room where we have home school and it adjoins our living room and everyone must pass through this room to use the toilet.  Over the last 9 months or so I have had to record at night and that led to more subdued studies with my eyes being all dried up, and my tired old head about ready for bed.  I have obtained a decent pocket recorder, and so I have begun recording studies during the late afternoon in our bedroom instead.  I think this will be much better.  The recording quality will be diminished, but I believe the trade-off will be well worth it.


November 14, 2014 - New Bible Study - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah - Isaiah Chapter 2 "Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?"

November 9, 2014 - Latest Study in Acts - Chapter 17 "Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead."

October 17, 2014 - Latest Study in John - Chapter 21 "This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me."  This concludes the study in John's Gospel.  Up next: Isaiah.

October 9, 2014 - Latest Study in Acts - Chapter 15 "Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:"

October 6, 2014 - Latest Study in John - Chapter 20 "Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe."

September 15, 2014 Revelation Update - The work on the musical production of Revelation Chapters 12-22 continues. 
     Soon after the first Revelation album came out in 2012,  it became apparent that there was no market for my music. So I switched back to a focus on bible studies.  This does not mean I have abandoned musical projects, they are a lower priority for the time being. 
     There have been some problems with the second part of Revelation and these problems have delayed production.  My guitarist sustained repetitive strain injuries to his hands.  These injuries make work on my project unadvisable at any point in the near future.  He could use your prayers. Having no other options, I will have to play the lead guitar for chapters 12-22. 
     At first, this was a little daunting, but I picked up a Dean Vendetta (the very best guitar one can get for $100) and I'm finding that I enjoy recording the electric guitar.  I do not feel any reluctance to ask of myself things that I would be reluctant to ask someone else.  In other words, I can be more demanding of myself than I would be of another guitarist, and I think this will result in my creative vision becoming more clearly expressed. 
     Today, I finished composing the lead guitar parts for chapters 12-22.  They are very demanding and causing my adrenaline to spike as I go about my day listening to the half-complete versions on my iPod.  I'm looking forward to recording them over the coming months.
     I love my Revelation. It is one of my life's ambitions to complete this project, if only for my own enjoyment.  I will do it for my own love of the work that God has given me.  That is my primary motivation in everything I do.  I love the work.

April 20 2014
- John Chapter 8 audio bible study is available. I did not record any video with John 8. There is not always time every week for video recording whereas I can make time to record audio nearly every evening. That does not necessarily mean that the videos are done.  I still have plans for more videos, but I think the line by line studies demand a faster pace than I can keep with producing the videos. It is more important for me to get a large volume of work done than to produce the detailed videos at this time.

April 10, 2014
  -  Added the book of  the Acts of the Apostles to the bible studies page and audio for chapter 1.  I will continue teaching John and Acts simultaneously.

April 7, 2014
  -  John Chapter 7 audio is available.  As I state on the studies page, my intention is to finish the Gospel of John as soon as possible and move on to Acts.  In order to accomplish this I'm recording raw video for John weekly and releasing the audio portions immediately.  The videos will be delayed but the audio will be coming out within days of the recording session.  It takes a lot of time to produce the videos, I have mixed feelings about them.  I have a hard time accepting the idea of releasing the videos without the numerous scripture citations.   But I am considering that option because there are many things I want to do and a limited time in which to do them.

April 3, 2014
-  I have added a new page to the website: "Questions." This will replace the "history" page I never got around to making.  In order to avoid having to change every link on every page of my website, the main page is still called history.htm. I may do something related to my history, or the website's history but I'm putting that on hold, I just don't see it as very important at the moment.  Also uploaded the audio from John Chapter 6, if you look on the Studies page there is an explanation there outlining my thoughts on the future of the video studies in John.  I also made a minor update to the Contact page.

March 14, 2014
- Added 35 Emails to my Shepherd's Chapel Page.  This means I have actually caught up on all Shepherd's Chapel email. 

Going to start work on a new page for the website. I'm going to replace the "History" section with a "Questions" page which makes more sense as a main page on the website.  I will probably work a history page in somewhere else.  Over the past few years with increasing traffic on this site I have gotten a good number of questions which I think would be useful to publish on a page dedicated to questions.  I love questions, truly.  Questions are what drove me into the word.  I like answering people individually. 

I spent several hours the other day  trying to figure out how to add a search function to this website.  I have not given up but it looks like it will not be as easy as I had hoped.



March 4, 2014
- Last week added video studies for John Chapter 5 - Part 4 and Part 5 to my YouTube page.  I also added a little more commentary to my corrections to On Jesus Christ and The Nature of God.  I'll probably have to do a more thorough work . Feeling much better nearly two weeks after the operation.  Hopefully this will mean less noisy sniffing in the bible studies. The nose is still sore and scabs up and bleeds inside. It can take several weeks or more before I will experience the full effects, but I can already breathe better than I can ever remember in the past.

February 19 2014 - I posted corrections to On Jesus Christ and The Nature of God based on what God has revealed to me this very day. 

Also, a few days ago I added a John 5 bible study to my YouTube page  John Chapter 5 part 3 of 7 - John 5:17-24 - My Father Worketh Hitherto and I Work

I have also reorganized the John audio series and uploaded all seven audio parts of John Chapter 5 even the parts that have not been made into videos yet.   

Tomorrow, I am going to have an operation to correct my deviated septum.  When I was ten years old I was attacked by six older boys; who, pinning me to the ground, told me they intended to tie me up with a jump rope and throw me in the creek.  As they began the project, I struggled to get free, and due to the general lack of enthusiasm for the enterprise, I got away.  Instead of running away, I turned my back on the bullies and slowly walked away. 
The ringleader ran up behind me and, from behind, struck me in the face.  I did not realize it at the time, but he broke my nose.  This resulted in lifelong breathing problems which can be heard in many of my recordings.  I have edited out some of the loud breathing sounds at times, but I believe it is a hindrance to my ministry. So I intend to allow man to undo what was done to me by man.  Hopefully this will result in a better sound in the resonance of my voice (less nasal) and less noisy breathing in my bible studies.  I don't really like the idea of having surgery, but I do this because I think it is best for my ministry. I would not allow any fear to persuade me not to do everything I could, that the Gospel should not be hindered by  infirmities which may be remedied.  The operation may not be successful. Please pray for success.

February 10, 2014
- The Book of Revelation is completed today with Revelation Chapter 22.

February 7, 2014
- Added to the Doctrine page, under Doctrinal Subjects related to My Background: Why I Left Spirit of Truth Church.  From March 21, 2005 until May 12, 2009 I was involved with the ministry of Spirit of Truth Church in Lyons, WI.  This page explains why and how I came to leave.

January 15, 2014
The latest Bible Study is up: Revelation Chapter 15.  I have also added 2 new YouTube videos, a study (John Chapter 5 part 1 of 7) and a song (Isaiah Chapter 5)  I have also added another torrent to The Pirate Bay, this time it is my line by line study in Romans, I was very pleased at the number of people downloading the bible studies through the torrents, more to come.

January 13, 2014
The latest revelation bible study is up: Revelation Chapter 14.  Last week I had to make a quick update to the Shepherd's Chapel page to correct a few errors. In the process of correcting the errors I added 10 new emails and a new special article "The Question every Shepherd's Chapel Student should be asking."

January 7, 2014
The line by line study  in Revelation Chapter 13 is now up.  Answering  questions like, "Now that you have the number of the beast,  what should you do with it?"

January 2, 2014
Several updates today.  I have added an article to the doctrine page based on an  email question: Do you really consider yourself a prophet? Do you really get commands direct from GOD? I get many emails related to my work against the ministry that first trained me in the bible, The Shepherd's Chapel.  But I also get many other emails that are not really related to questions about all that.  This is one of them and as I catch up on posting email for the Chapel I will probably put out more of the other questions people ask.
There are also some major updates to the Shepherd's Chapel page.  Today, I'm adding the transcription and commentary to for Special Article #3.  This one has been a long time coming.  And I think it will have an impact on new students of the Chapel to see how intentionally deceptive Arnold Murray is about who the Jews are.  I have been working very hard to catch up on posting emails, I'm still way behind but I'm adding #'s 150-169, that's 20 more.  Usually after a big update I stop for a while and move on to to other projects, such as my musical projects, but I intend to completely catch up early this year while continuing bible studies and other projects.


December 31, 2013
Chapter 12
of my Revelation bible study is now up.

December 20, 2013
Chapter 11

December 16, 2013
Chapter 10 of my Revelation bible study is now up. Chapter 11 should be up before the end of the week. Working on several website updates for the new year.

December 13, 2013
Chapter 9
of my Revelation bible study is now up.  Chapter 10 was recorded last night and I was pleased with the results, more to come.

December 11, 2013
The next Chapter in the Revelation Bible Study is now up, Chapter 8. Chapter 9 was recorded last night and I will hopefully have it cut and ready soon.

December 6, 2013
Today, I posted the first study since October.  Revelation Chapter 7.  Also in the last month I posted a torrent file for The Book of Revelation to thepiratebay, (You can search "Oracles of God" on the pirate bay to find it)one of the most popular websites on the planet.  And I plan to go on a tear to get through Revelation ASAP. And to post more songs and bible studies to thepiratebay. 
I've been having issues with my recording equipment. I'm very thankful right now because I was recently able to replace my malfunctioning audio interface, and also to replace my microphone which was also malfunctioning.   I never like to say much about stuff like that, because I don't want to seem like I'm playing for sympathy or monetary support.  God knows what I need, I'm thankful, and I trust in the Holy Spirit to provide what is needed for the ministry.

October 13, 2013
The sixth chapter of the Revelation bible study is up.  In preparation for the second half of the Revelation album, I'm sending my audio equipment out for long overdue repairs. I have several options which will allow me continue to work on bible studies.  This fall has been very busy I have had a lot to do preparing for winter, I have to do all the work myself so I lose time; I expect ministry work to accelerate in the oncoming months of winter.

September 18, 2013
The fifth chapter of the Revelation bible study is up.  I have also added the notes and chords pages of the albums In the Day of the East Wind and Baptizer of Fire. I've also combined the news page with the home page, I suppose it was a design flaw, but while this page will keep only the latest news, the news page will contain old news and perhaps expanded news. Such as the following...

The Revelation bible study is proceeding, but sometimes I feel like I'm being dragged in several directions at the same time, I have the next chapter of John recorded, I have the next music video recorded, I recorded it over a year ago but want to do quality work.  I've had very strong urges lately to begin seriously working on the second half of Revelation and in fact I have begun working on it.  At the same time I have had urges to complete the tracks on In the Day of the East Wind that I began to work on two years ago before I started on Revelation.

Then there are all the emails and the doctrine.  I keep up with emails fairly well only falling behind occasionally on individual messages that for some reason to not move me to answer immediately.  Where I am behind is on the messages that need to be prepared for publication.  And there are the other writings...other videos... doctrinal pieces.  Then I have to take into account all my other obligations which are numerous.  I'm writing this because it frustrates me that I cannot do everything I would like to do as soon as I want to do it, but I am grateful for the patience of the saints especially my wife who is my biggest supporter.

September 15, 2013

I have updated the Songs page adding all 10 tracks from, The Book of Revelation (Chapters 1-11),  (also at right) which can now be downloaded at no charge from this site.  I have also added notes, chords, and additional artwork from the album The Fear of Yahveh, to that same page.  Revelation 5 bible study will be finished soon.

April 19, 2013
I have been working hard to get caught up in all aspects of my ministry. To this end I have added 38 new email conversations to my Shepherd's Chapel Page

April 4, 2013
Over the past several weeks I have uploaded several new bible study videos completing John Chapter 3 and a new song video for Psalm 22

January 22, 2013
I have completed work on a doctrinal exploration of the issues of death and resurrection.  The new page may be accessed through the doctrine section or by this link: Death and Resurrection

November 26, 2012
I noticed that the new version of the article on "Sacred names" was not linked on the doctrine page.  That has been fixed. I am currently wrapping up a major doctrinal piece on death and resurrection for release in December, this will include text and audio.

November 7, 2012
Added New High Quality Video for the song "Four Trumpets" from The Book of Revelation


October 2, 2012
Added 7 more emails to the Shepherd's Chapel page.

September 24, 2012
Recently Added notes, lyrics and chords for Revelation, also added more email questions to the Shepherd's Chapel page (under doctrine)..

January 1, 2012

I'm very sorry that I was not able to resume bible studies as of my last announcement.  But I determined I had to throw my all into finishing the Book of Revelation and the first installment is nearly finished.  I have not mentioned the following  previously, lest my enemies rejoice over me, but I lost my business a little over two years ago, and lost most of my free time with it.  Out of this the Lord has shown me how deeply I do want to do the ministry so I have been pouring all my strength into Revelation in the hopes that it will sell well and I will be able to conduct my ministry according to my earnest desire.  This ministry received one donation in 2011, and I am very thankful for it.

I hope that by the end of January the Book of Revelation will available on iTunes and Amazon.

If you would like to be notified when the album comes out or of other updates send me a message to that effect and I will add you to a mailing list for that purpose, I will not share your email address with anyone.  reborn@oraclesofgod.org

April 22, 2011

I'm resuming the bible studies but I don't think I will be able to do more than one or two a week. More videos are coming too. 

The new version of Revelation is coming along, I currently have all the electric guitar tracks and I am working on the vocals, bass guitar, orchestra, SFX, and drums.  This will be a commercial project, my first.  I have to do this because this ministry is not supported by donations, yet it takes up all my time, I'd really like to do this full time, but the ministry is currently an expense and earning enough money to support the ministry and my family leaves me little time for either.  Hopefully many people will buy the Book of Revelation and that will give me the time and capital to finish all my other albums.  One of my great frustrations is that I have not been able to finish an album since 1998.

March 11, 2011

Musically, the final Book of Revelation Project has taken a big leap forward and is quickly progreessing towards a summer release on Amazon.com

Last Month I added a youtube video Revelation Chapter 13

I will be updating my Shepherd's Chapel page in the next week or so.

Bible Studies will soon resume with the Book of Revelation and the Prophets.

The Gospel of John video Bible study is somewhat mired at the moment but will eventually pickup on my youtube channel.

October 11, 2010

I added another video or two to youtube a while back, Isaiah Chapter 2 and John 1 part two (left) but I have not taken time to update the website.  I'm working on something  that I will be making an announcement about soon.

August 17, 2010

A week ago I added the first Bible study  video to Youtube. John Chapter 1 part 1 The True Light

July 19, 2010

Added a new music video to YouTube, Ezekiel Chapter 28:12-19

July 13, 2010

Added a new music video to YouTube, Isaiah Chapter 1.  I do not get a lot of traffic over at YouTube, but I do get 200,000 hits a month here on oraclesofgod.org. So I have removed  all the new songs from Isaiah  in order to hopefully get more views on my YouTube channel.  The YouTube versions of the songs from Isaiah will be the final release versions.

July 4, 2010

Completed the Gospel according to Luke.  Should be starting John this week, the bible teaching may slow down a bit because I'm going to be doing John on video, and I have an email backlog and some other projects that need my attention.

May 29, 2010

Yesterday (May 28th) I completed the study in Mark, but something came up, and I was unable to edit and post the final audio for Mark Chapter 16 to oraclesofgod.org until today.

May 2006 - April 2010:

Note: There was a four year gap in which I continued to update the site, but did not make note of updates.  This was the period in which I was acting as webmaster for Spirit of Truth Church and I was also doing a lot of work on the Shepherd's Chapel and Arnold Murray (that section was created in 2007).

UPDATE: April 9, 2006

There is alot of new stuff in this update.  Be sure to look  the page over.

There is one song to add in this update and somewhat to say about it.  (below)

A complete reconstruction of this site is planned but I wanted to make some changes right away. 

The biography page has been redone with more details, I'm going to consider adding a happier photo.  

I will be eliminating the separate albums pages. That concept was based on my former delusion of those  someday coming out in full production.  I still dream of Apocalypse, but soon the albums will only appear on the sales page.

I will be eliminating two e-mail addresses.  99% of the e-mail I get through  them is spam: voice@oraclesofgod.org and freecd@oraclesofgod.org to sleep.  Freecd is going out immediately and voice will follow soon after when I change my paypal account.  Anyone in a foriegn country seeking a freecd should send their request to request@oraclesofgod.org and  Reborn@oraclesofgod.org will replace voice.

The new song is Isaiah Chapter 6, I wrote it about two weeks ago. 

Many artists have already done Isaiah Chapter Six but, correct me if I'm wrong; they all stop after verse 8.  They all end with "here am I, send me."  The very next words (verse 9) are the words of God in response.   But these other artists never quote the next verses, I assume because they do not want to expose what they see as the "negative" side of God; which is this:  God Blinds people to prevent them from being saved. I tell you the truth,  If God wanted to save everyone, then everyone would be saved.  But he doesn't want everyone.  I do not see this as a "negative" it is His fullness.  It may be negative for God's enemies, but this is what they are appointed to: to be destroyed.  

The first word the Lord says to Isaiah in verse 9 is "GO!" The Lord showed me how the other artists who wrote this chapter into song heard another message from God.  "Stop!" Do not go beyond verse eight.  I have not chosen you, you will not speak for me.  But when I wrote it He said, "Go!" And if anyone else did it all, God told them to "Go!" too.

Isaiah Chapter 6 recorded April 7th and 8th, 2006 in my home studio in rural Northwest Illinois.

This is a list of songs which are written but I do not have good recordings of yet, we'll call them "Coming Soon"

Psalm 51
Psalm 76
Isaiah Chapter 63 (not just the first six verses)
Isaiah Chapter 64
John Chapter 8
John Chapter 14
John Chapter 16
1 Thessalonians Chapter 4

Last week I printed out the whole book of Isaiah and am determined to begin making all 66 chapters into songs. So it's twelve down and fifty four to go.

UPDATE: November 18, 2005

Well, we have changed servers and now I've got a server with un-limited space for half the money.

Here are some new live tracks added today:

Revelation 20:1-21:10, July 3, 2005 live at Spirit of Truth Church

Isaiah Chapter 28, July 10, 2005 live at Spirit of Truth Church

John Chapter 14 January 2005 live at Polo "Closed" Bible Church

The sound quality on this one is not so hot: 1 John Chapter 3 Live at Polo, May 2005 but the performance was inspired.  This was my last performance at Polo.  The church which will be remembered as the church where I was only welcome so long as I kept my mouth shut and sang.  Which I do not really fault them for, at Spirit of Truth, we would not suffer their minister to speak either.

Speaking of ministers speaking...Recently, I became the webmaster for Spirit of Truth Christian Church.  So we started posting all the sermons on the internet.  This is one of my favorites, it is called "It Will Come" and it is not for the faint of heart.  This link will take you to the webpage dedicated to this sermon.

Wednesday, November 9, 2005 - It Will Come Also check out the summary (which I did). It documents over the three hundred scripture references in this sermon.  

With all this space, I'm going to be adding new live tracks  (many of them).  Also, I'm going to be restoring files that I had to remove because I was running out of space on my old server.  Also, I may add vocals only versions of select songs as a bone to people who think instrumental music is of the Devil. Even though I know they are completely wrong, and have considered writing lengthy explanations of why.

After my last update my mother (and today my brother) pointed out that the link to my brother's site was wrong, I'll give the correct one but be warned, if you don't have  a high speed connection or alot of spare time, avoid: stringini-animations.com

This site is due for a redesign, I don't think It will be very extensive but there are a few things I would like to change.

UPDATE: October 12, 2005

After the last update my own mother asked my brother (stringini-animations.com) not to link to my site, because she didn't want people to read about the things I was involved in.  But there is nothing hidden that shall not be revealed and that which is done in the secret chambers shall be proclaimed on the housetops.  Honestly I doubt anyone is sniggering at my confession because the sins that I was involved with are very common.

Some people did not think that my assessment of my church as being "perfect" was very realistic.  I don't mean that everyone in the building is perfect in every way.  But those that are HIS have certain things in common and the most important is this:  we have the same doctrine that the Apostles and prophets taught, none other.  And also there is righteousness: we are not as those who "cannot cease from sin."

The  song I have for this update is Psalm 38, this one was recorded in studio so the sound is much better.  This song truly captures the attitude we should have, sincerely, before God, when we have sinned.  It is a beautiful song.

From the many recordings I have made a my new home church, I am going to be adding  live versions of several songs hopefully over the next two months, Including Revelation Chapter 20 - 21:1.  I like some of the live versions so much better that they will be replacing the old demo's of some songs (like John 17 and Matthew Chapter 5)

I have been writing songs and soon I will be adding more like John Chapter 14 (already recorded) and Psalm 76 and Psalm 51.  More are in the works.

UPDATE: June 18th, 2005

I just realized today, June 18th, that my E-mail is not working, by permanent fatal errors, HORRORS! It's been awful quiet out there...ok its fixed,  please email me again folks. 

Wow, I don't Even know how to begin this update but some strange and wonderful things have happened to me as of late, I can honestly now declare that I have tasted of "the powers of the world to come."  I am converted. The date was March 21st, 2005 and you can read a little about that date here.  I'm going to be expanding my biography to include the years of my hypocrisy but for now just read this letter to a friend of this site. There are two new songs but I don't have recordings of them yet they are I John 3 and Psalm 38 which I will be singing at Church Sunday and hopefully bringing back recordings of to post here soon.  

I finally found a Church.  You can now come see me play almost any weekend at Spirit of Truth Church, in Lyons, WI.  Read our doctrine at http://spiritoftruthministries.org (now changed to spiritoftruthchurch.org) we support no sin. By the Power of God in Jesus Christ, sin must cease. If that's for you please write.

I have now enabled the link to my pet project which I hope you will enjoy Reconstructing Death and Hell. 

UPDATE: January 17, 2005

Time to update one of the slowest moving sites on the web. Well hopefully these two songs will make up for the long wait.  First is the promised John Chapter 15 - 128kpbs 5.3 megs or John Chapter 15 - 64kbps 2.7 megs, the recording I'm making available is from a live performance at Polo Open Bible Church, Polo, IL May 30th, 2004.   The song John 15 has  become one of my  favorites.   And I recommend it highly.

The second song I'm uploading is one I wrote after witnessing a false prophet  in action.  They do "cold readings" much as the so-called "psychics" do and call themselves prophets, this song makes clear what the Lord thinks of such actions.  If you love the harder edge of Oracles of God you will be blown away by Ezekiel Chapter 13.   Presented, as above, in a live performance at Polo Open Bible Church, Polo, IL September 26th, 2004.  I should note that I  finished writing this song the day before I performed it, and as such, it was a little rough around the edges.  In any case I'm sure you'll be knocked out by: Ezekiel Chapter 13 -128kpbs 5.87 megs or Ezekiel Chapter 13 - 64kbps 3.0 megs

Updated April 6, 2004

Last month when I updated this site I neglected to update the year if you missed the update there were two new songs posted. Next update there should be another new song posted: John Chapter 15.

Updated March 5, 2004

Well, so much for updating this site more frequently but at least I've been busy otherwise.  I'm adding a new song Matthew Chapter 23 (click here and download the 6.9 meg 128kbps mp3 file) and a rough remake of Psalm 6 (click here and download the 2.3 meg 128kbps mp3) either file can be accessed on the master list page, look for the " NEW !." Additionally, I added  an artist biography to the concert page.  I'm in the process of writing a bunch more songs.  I have been doing some minor performing to minor acclaim and  I will be posting date and location information in the future.  Recently an important doctrinal issue has been "tormenting" me, I'm writing a short book on the subject. Thanks to Ben Laster for pointing out Apocalypse Chapter 12 was not a complete file, the problem has been fixed, if anyone else notices broken links or anything amiss please let me know.

Unknown 2003

This has got to be a quick update, I hope to do another one soon, in which I will add a few new songs.  The broken links to Matthew chapters 5 and 7 have been repaired, I'm having trouble with the David and Goliath files, I think I need to reload them.  Anyway I've been away a lot working a summer job to make ends meet.  Anyway work has dried up a bit so hopefully I'll get back to updating this site more frequently.   

Updated February 6, 2003

Site update:  Well it has taken longer than we anticipated and its not quite done yet but the site has undergone a major update.  We doubled the number of files adding 64kbps mp3 files and 128kbps files and deleting the 96kbps files.  We also made some changes to the way the songs are listed. There will be some broken links and missing files temporarily but we expect to have everything fixed by the end of the month.

Updated December 12, 2002

  We decided to upgrade all the MP3's on this site to 128 kbps the process has begun and should be finished by late December. During this time some files may become temporarily unavailable. When that is done we're going to add a section with low-fi songs so people with slow connections can preview the tracks without waiting all day to download.  Part 3 from the Sermon on the Mount will be posted on this site by the end of the month, the link will appear here.

Updated October 24, 2002

Fixed Broken Links on master links page to the Neo-Classical songs and upgraded files to 128kbps and added 128kbps mix of all three parts of David and Goliath - "The Battle Hymn of David and Goliath."

Updated September 24, 2002

New song! Matthew Chapter Seven, The Message from the Mountain Part 3 can only be downloaded from ChristianMp3.com for now.  It will be added to the master list in a month or two.  To get it just follow this link: http://christianmp3.com/groupinfo.cfm?bandid=1377 and scroll down the list of songs to: The Message from the Mountain - Part 3 - Matthew Chapter 7.  We hope you enjoy this one, in a few weeks we will post a mix of all three tracks into one file (the way it is intended to be heard).

On another note:  Oracles of God is exploring opportunities, that are becoming available, to put on live performances.  This is still in the works.  We will have more information as we move into the new year.  We will probably begin in the Chicago Area and go from there but if there are any organizations interested in hosting a performance at some future date drop us a line voice@oraclesofgod.org 

Updated July 28, 2002

This month we started adding songs on Christianmp3.com, the files there are smaller so they download faster, but the quality is not as good as the files here.

I disabled the message board as I could not get it to work properly and I dumped the guestbook as well.  

The third part of "The Message from the mountain" will be online by mid August.

"In the Day of the East Wind" is bogged down again due to my producer seeking a career in the medical field.  No telling when it will be finished.

Updated May 23, 2002

About a month ago I recorded this track live in my home "studio." it's become one of my personal favorites. On this recording (unlike all others on this site) I'm playing and singing simultaneously like I do when I practice, I liked the way it turned out (despite a few errors) so here it is...
 NEW ! Matthew Chapter 6 "The Message From The Mountain Part 2" 3.35 megs -
Part 3 of the Sermon on the Mount (Judge Not) is composed, and I'm anxious to share it, it's really intense, but I'm considering rewriting the end, so there is no telling how soon its going up.
These Songs and others I am working on are going to be part of another album I'm working on consisting mostly (if not exclusively) of the words of our Lord, right now I'm working on Matthew 7 and 23 for this album.

Updated April 20, 2002

If you didn't notice; there was a clandestine update to the master list, a few weeks ago,  I added the demo song "The Message from the Mountain Part 1" Matthew Chapter 5. Part 2 is already written and on the way soon!

Added Three Preview tracks to the Eastwind page and Master_list. Psalm 8 and 24 and Ezekiel Chapter 31.

We also have added the retail version of the into for Isaiah Chapter 42 to the guitar-and-vocal track and it will be uploaded in a day or two.

Added New Section to Master List page "Songs From Our Friends"  This section will showcase other scripture songs composed by our friends, If you have a song you would like listed there just email voice@oraclesofgod.org  for details and restrictions.

Added Philippians Chapters 3 & 4 to the friends section.  Courtesy of Chip.

Added the heavy metal masterpiece Habakkuk Chapter 3 to friends section. Courtesy of the Marquis de Shred.

Updated March 30, 2002

The full production version of "In the Day of the East Wind" is coming along and may finally go on sale this year, if the Lord is willing, he is able.

As of today: We are no longer taking requests for "The Fear of Yahveh" Free CD from US residents.

Non-residents may continue to submit their requests for our free CD by e-mail.  We will eventually get them to you.

The reason is that we have been flooded with requests, and while we still want to provide this material free, the volume of requests is beyond our ability to fulfill (but not the Lord's) So we are eliminating US Resident requests from consideration,  If a poor country boy from Chicago can print and give away over a thousand CD's,  my countrymen can afford to buy music.  But since I promised the Fear of Yahveh would be free, it will not be available for sale either.

Updated March 8, 2002

Added Chords to Apocalypse: View the file here. Sign my guestbook and let us know you're out there!

New Server! Last week we finished upgrading to a faster commercial server!  We are planning  to release the chords from "Apocalypse" in the first quarter of 2002.  This work is somewhat intensive so please be patient.

"The Fear of Yahveh" is not going into a second printing any time soon (unless we have a miracle) so we have begun burning CD's from our own PC and printing labels from our own inkjet printer to cover the floods of requests.  The CD's will not look as sharp as before but the sound quality will be the same.  This process will take some time but everyone who has requested a CD and has not yet received one will be receiving one eventually.  Also there will be an unlisted bonus track added to the end of the CD.  There are people who are waiting over a year to receive their CD and the thought of that has grieved me much.  Pray for our success.

New Songs!!!  Here is an Mp3 of  "Isaiah Chapter 55"  a new song we have added to "In the Day of the East Wind" (those of you who have purchased the first demo of this CD will soon be receiving an updated disc in the mail)

We have also added a bootleg of the final version of "Ezekiel Chapter 31"  to the "In the Day of the East Wind' page.

All remaining Revelation/Apocalypse Demo CD MP3's  Uploaded! 

New Project Begun

We have started writing songs for a fourth Oracles of God project (writing songs is free - recording them is not - hence the current limbo status of our two CD Apocalypse album).  This one is going to be very focused on the New Testament especially the Gospels.  Songs currently being composed:  The Sermon on the Mount  or as we call it "The Message From the Mountain" (Matthew Chapters 5, 6, & 7)  The Eight Woe's (Matthew Chapter 23), and The Parable of the Sower (Mark Chapter 4).  Isaiah Chapter 55, John Chapter 17 and the Song of Moses which got bumped off "In the Day of the East Wind" will probably end up on this album.

Progress on Apocalypse

As some are aware we are currently in the writing phase for our third album which will be titled something like "Oracles of God: Apocalypse - The Disclosure of Jesus Christ" and the songs will present the entire book of Revelation line for line from scripture.  This will require two CD's, on the first, the first eleven chapters, and on the second, the last eleven chapters.  So far the music for the the first CD is composed but we left off working on a demo of it since our recording equipment is not good enough now and we really need to practice some of the songs because they are more difficult than anything we've done before.  So its practicing and writing.   On disc two we finished a new song last week covering chapters 14 and 15.  The only chapters that need to be finished are 12, 17(half done), 18, 20(3/4 done), 21, and 22.
