There are many songs within the pages of God's Word, such as:

  • Love Songs
  • Wedding Songs
  • Watchmen's Songs
  • Taunt Songs
  • Mourning Songs

I thought that you music students might like to go over a few of the types of songs found in the bible, since we are exhorted by the Apostle Paul by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to "teach and exhort one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs." (Spontaneous, prophetic songs)


When Tom and I were in Cornwall, England; with a prophetic team in 1994, I had an experience that shows the awesome power of God to move a persons heart through music. There are times when the gospel in song will do what nothing else can do. We'd been sharing the gospel on the streets of St. Ives, when I came up to one stoney faced woman and tired to talk to her of Jesus. She did not want to hear about Jesus. My heart immediately reached out to Jesus for instructions, as I could not bear to see her robbed of that which God had for her. The Spirit of the Lord said: "Sing to her!" And right there, God anointed me with the gospel in song. It was a "new song."A spontaneous, prophetic song. Not one I'd ever learned before. I just received the words from the Lord, right there on the spot. It was simple, direct, and she began to break and to weep openly, as she heard the message of God's love and salvation, in a way that God had chosen just for her. (Col. 3:16, Eph. 5:19

It is comforting to be sung to. I love it! I have a friends who call me by the leading of the Lord and sing to me. Sometimes this will come when I am going through a deep trial, and I cannot tell you how much this ministers to me. I call people and sing to them as the Lord leads... If God gives YOU a song for Tom or me, you be sure and call us up with it. We'd welcome it!


The Song Of Israel At The Well: Numbers 21:17
"Spring Up O Well."
"Spring up O well! Sing you unto it! The well which the leaders sank. Which the people dug, with the sceptre of their staffs."

We see Israel with their leaders flowing in the prophetic Spirit here in song. Here's a prime example of a prophetic song bringing even the elements under God's authority through music, and of the water springing forth. In these new Testament times, spiritual authority comes in Jesus name. The elders and the people of God have been singing to the ground for a long time, and the water of life is springing up everywhere. It's a river of refreshing. A fountain of cleansing! It's the gospel in song!

You will see and hear of plenty of this in these days, because God's people as going to be moving more and more in revelation knowledge as the eyes of our hearts are enlightened with the Spirit of wisdom and revelation. Jesus spoke to the elements and they obeyed Him. Even under the Old Covenant, we see God's faith filled people speaking to inanimate objects, such as Joshua commanding the sun and the moon to stand still in the Valley of Aijalon. God has alluded to this in the prophecy: "Aiyeleth Shahar: The Hind of the Morning," on Lark of the Morning's International web-site. In Africa and elsewhere in the world, there are places that receive terrible weather conditions, such as famines, droughts, terrible snow-storms, or hurricanes.

Jesus told us to "speak to the mountain, and command it to be removed into the sea and it shall obey us. (Mk. 11:23) Just be sure that you have the agape that goes with it, because the bible says even if we have faith so as to move mountains and have not love, it profits us nothing. (1 Cor. 13) Here, in Numbers 21:17, the people dug a well and then sang to it, and the water gushed forth. Expect God to use you to meet the needs of the people and to demonstrate His power and to confirm His Word with signs and wonders. People of God, the Lord has given you the sceptre of His own staff of authority for you to call things forth through the power of His Spirit.


Some of you may not have considered even the possibility of singing prophetically, but do you know that God's Word says: In the last days says God, I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy. Your young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams. And on my servants and on My handmaidens will I pour out of My Spirit in those days and they shall prophesy. Acts 2:18f. You can read more about singing through the inspiration of God's Spirit in I Cor. 14. Although this chapter speaks more of singing with our prayer language, and interpreting it, the same principles apply. This type of song is an utterance that is spontaneous and prophetic. It's not the kind that is borne in the mind of man where one struggles to make it sound just so. God gives the song! And the anointing of the Lord goes forth and His power is manifested.


In Col. 3:16, we're exhorted to teach and exhort one another with psalms, and hymns and spiritual songs. Here we see musical "teachings," in these various forms, such as psalms and hymns, and spiritual or spontaneous prophetic songs.

The last catagory I've mentioned are those prophetic songs which come in English rather than in your prayer language. The musical accompaniment helps to cement in place, the doctrinal understanding according of the scriptures, for the purpose of not only celebrating God's great salvation, but grounding converts in truth. This is why, in times of revival; many songs come forth, borne of God's Spirit. Because between revivals, people tend to let things slip, and God wants to rebuild truth's bulwarks.

For when these are built, God's people become living epistles, read and known of all men.

Let Mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad; because of thy judgments. Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof. Mark well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that you may tell it to the generations following. For this God is our God forever and ever, and He will be our guide even unto . (Psalm 48:11-14)

It is not enough to sing praise and worship from our lips and not to have these precious truthes of God's word sink down deeply into our hearts and to become imbedded and grow and flourish there.

For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:10)

These songs are our confession of God's salvation. There is a great need for salvation to come to the lost souls of this earth---We must get this word of God into people's minds and hearts in every way that we can---. But most importantly--- in deed and in truth. Let's make sure that our music is doctrinally pure, so that the generations to follow, will find salvation in them. And that our conduct when viewed by others, is not a stumbling block; but it too is also a confession of our salvation through our faith in Jesus Christ.
