Not only do I create and perform musical works with all my heart and soul, I'm at least as passionate about writing down my thoughts and feelings. Reasoning, meditating and analysing is all part of this and by putting it down in words Jah has enabled me to share it with others.

Two Albums and an Experiece

Greetings in the Name of the Lord and Saviour Yesus Kristos, I and I Redeemer, JAH Rastafari!

It is my hope, that you are doing at least as well as i currently do. In the midst of all kinds of events, I would like to humbly inform you again about my current runnings and situation. Thank you for your interest.

It's the fifth month, and I have released about 25 different tracks this year. Also, I released two "Net Albums" and re-released all my earlier MP3.com albums as well. The cover-art can be downloaded, the music can be burned on a CD and there you have your CD.

DOWNLOADFROM DUBROOM ARCHIVES VOLUME THREE contains 17 tracks under heavy DUB Discipline. Recorded in the period 2003-2005, the tunes clearly mark the change in my music from a more instrumental approach into the Digital Realm. I've lost a few listeners, and gained some more with it. The album starts and ends with two different versions of a track called Rootsman Style. Several different vibes are passing through, from the ultra-relaxed "Cool And Dreadly" to the militant  "Mythological State Of Unity" to the dancehall-ish "Walking Stick". 

DOWNLOADSKUNK IN THE ROOM is a selection of 12 DUB shots, all created in 2005. Some of the tracks are kind of autobiographical, and the titles as well as the various descriptions (only available online) will significantly increase the listening experience. Some tracks are in the style of my previous album, HARDCORE DUB SESSIONS which all dealt with the state of the world in this time. 

SKUNK IN THE ROOM is a title which is given to me a while back by someone who tried to find words to describe her ideas about my faith. Some of the tracks on this free NET album relate directly to the events that followed the publication of my book "Christafarianism", back in october 2004. 

I am still working on a follow-up for this book. The events that recently took place on the Dubroom's Message Boards as well as other places, the enormous amount of information, it really is a lot.

A short while ago, I published some articles which caused fierce discussion (again). Spiritually, I am going through a growth-process which I have never experienced before. And ofcourse I am writing about these things. Many do not like it, and they voice their opinnions loudly. Fortunately, I would like to add. For as long as there is communication, there is still a joint interest. 

But I am experiencing some really odd situations in this all. Not that they really touch me in such a way that I feel like giving up, or so, but they are pretty intense. 

In a previous update I allready wrote a little bit about the fact that I know myself to be touched by JAH in a way which I have not experienced before. I can read the Bible, for example.  For decades I have tried to find the right Bible "Translation", for years I have tried to find the answer to my question why the original manuscripts of the Bible have all gone lost in this creation. 

And equally, I find myself in an ever-growing distance between myself on one hand and several workers of what I have come to know as the Christian Industrial Complex on the other. I have been studying western Church History from various angles, and this has brought me a significant insight in the roots behind this Industry.

Lately, I have been meditating a lot about the message from a book called "The Normal Christian Life". This book is on the Dubroom for years now, and I consider it to be a must-read for all who believe in Yesus Kristos. The book contains so many good things, that you can re-read it over and over again and realize how you're only getting a small taste of the fullness of Watchman Nee's book "The Normal Christian Life". 

The last months have been tremendously intense, therefore. 

And there is more that I have been involved in. 

In the last months, I have written a book called "The Gospel Of JAH Rastafari" for an off-line group. This book contains some meditations on "what is a Christian", and "what is the Church" and many more things. This book will be published online too, but it will have to be translated from Dutch to English and the text has to be modifed a little bit as well.

I have also been talking a lot with several different people who were, so say the least, pretty confused about JAH. They were taught to look at people, to act in accordance with their own perception of other people, in short to fear the judgement of others.

JAH guided me to a serious situation. Something spiritual which I can not really talk about, other then that I can tell you how I feel like having been in the Belly of the Beast. I've seen people in total fear of others, as well as in total fear of evil spirits too.

It's not easy, to take a look into the satanic circle. What I have seen is people fascinated with death. In an uncontrolable urge, their whole perception is centered around decay, destruction, death, yes satan himself. 

Even people who have come to know JAH through Yesus Kristos can suffer under what I call "magic thinking". 

I've seen people obsessed with duppies and other evil spirits. There was one occasion, in which someone was staring seemingly into nothing. However, other people clearly saw evil spirits walking around, at exactly those places where this person was staring to. It's not neccesary to explain the vibe, obviously... Terrible...

What I have learned is, how JAH guides and protects those who seek Him. In the middle of what feels like the Belly of the Beast, in the midst of the exposure of satan's so-called "power" (which is really nothing but brute force), I layed myself to rest. 

I read a psalm that said: "If Jah Rastafari doesn't build the house or guard the city, people's work will be in vain. For He gives all these things to His beloved in their sleep". 

I know, we are all beloved of JAH. When we pray to Him in the Name of Yesus Kristos, we get a new life. And in that life, we know ourselves to be protected by JAH, and even loved by Him. 

Yes, I can witness that this is a true thing: JAH protects, and loves!

One Love,
Messian Dread
