Why Christians and “Worship” Teams Should Tune to 432 hz and Abandon 440 hz
by A. True Ott, PhD
First of all, allow me to explain the current situation by exploring historical truths. From the earliest history of instrumental music and “symphony”, we learn from archeological evidence uncovered primarily in the “fertile crescent” of ancient Ur of the Chaldees that the contemporaries of Father Abraham created specific musical instruments and tuned them to a “keynote” pitch of 432 hz. A number of metallic “tuning triangles” have in fact been unearthed in modern-day Iraq, that were used to “tune” various stringed instruments to a keynote pitch of 432 hz – known today as “Concert A” pitch.
Early Chaldean “Tuning” Triangle the original form of today’s “Tuning Forks” – emitting 432 hz tone.
Why did the early Chaldeans tune their various stringed instruments to 432 hz?? The biblical record explains the most probable reason. At the age of 99, we learn that Abraham was engaged in studying the stars in the night sky when he discovered the reality of God and eventually received a series of “revelations” concerning God’s plan of salvation and of course a SAVIOR (Messiah) which would eventually come to the world from Abraham’s numerous seed. That is the central core message of the entire Old Testament, (as well as the New Testament) – and it all began thousands of years ago, with Abraham studying the movements of the night sky.
Consider that modern astronomical science has verified what Abraham likely already knew – that the heavens themselves testify of the base number 432. For instance, it takes exactly 72 years for the earth to travel a mere one degree around the 25,920 year grand procession of the equinox through the 12 “star constellations”. There are 360 degrees in a complete circle. 72 x 360 = 25,920. The number 432 multiplied by the number 60 equals the 25,920 year procession of the equinox, as well as all of the planetary and stellar “processions” which also just happen to perfectly align with the base number 432. Is it just a coincidence that Abraham’s culture, the ancient Chaldees, produced instruments tuned to this base number of 432 hz vibrations? The salient question is, which came first, Abraham’s covenant with God, the Creator of the Universe, or Abraham’s knowledge of the 432 connection to the Creator of the Uni (one) Verse (song) that lent him the process to find and access God?
Following the starting point of Abraham’s covenant with God the Creator, we learn from the Biblical record that Abraham’s miraculous posterity became inter-twined with that of Egypt. For over four hundred years, Abraham’s seed served as servants to the Egyptians – until Moses came upon the scene. Consider that Moses’ sister Miriam was, according to the Bible, a highly skilled dancer and singer very much in demand in the royal courts of Egypt. See Exodus 15:20-21. What musical songs and frequency pitch did she dance and sing to? Once again, archeological evidence tells us that the vast majority of ancient Egyptian instruments were also tuned to the base frequency of 432 hz.
From the hand of Moses came the safety-net called the LAW, and during their subsequent sojourn in the wilderness to their establishment as a nation in Palestine, music clearly became an integral part of their sublime worship and oblations to their God. In clear distinction from that of the bedouin nations surrounding them, the music of the ancient Hebrews was not sensuous in nature, but was in fact a true sacramental oblation to their God. Clearly, to the ancient Hebrew, music was not an art form, but very much a part of their religion.
Biblical historians and archeologists have surmised that David, the shepherd-boy, was skilled in the use of three primary instruments – ALL TUNED TO 432 hz. First was a simple reed flute instrument consisting of a seven-note, chromatic scale with “A” being tuned as the “keynote” to 432 hz. Second was an early form of the Scottish “bagpipes” called a “symphonia”, and third, a stringed instrument called a Psanterin (that music from it was named “psaltery” or today’s biblical Psalms).

The Bible then details that during the time of the Prophet Jeremiah, the nation of Israel was once again conquered and “taken captive into Babylon”. Psalm 137 reads: “By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion. 2 We hanged our harps (psanterins) upon the willows in the midst thereof. (They quit playing their sacred songs) 3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion. 4 How shall we sing the LORD’S song in a strange land?”
Indeed, what exactly is the “LORD’S SONG”?? Could the “Lord’s Song” be specifically singing and playing instruments in the tuning of 432 hz? The evidence that follows says the answer to that question is an emphatic YES!
The “12 Tribes” of Israel eventually became scattered over the globe, but the record shows that Six (Roman Number VI) Kings (i.e the posterity of the Six Sons of Leah) went into the Northern (Norse) Lands and eventually became know as the VI Kings – or the Vikings. Once again the archeological record shows that 432 hz music was also an integral part of the Six Kings of the North and their culture.
The first part of this paper provides a brief overview of the origins of western Religious Music – which clearly from the time of David until the mid 20th Century, was pretty much uniformly played with “Concert A” being tuned to the “keynote” of 432 hz. Just as the ancient Hebrews were extremely strict in the preservation of their sacred written texts, (because they revered them as “God-Breathed”) so too did they preserve their sacred music “keynote” tone of 432 hz even through the “Dark Ages” as well as the “Renaissance” years up until the year 1953. Today, however, the “standard” Concert A pitch is no longer “432” but has been raised 8 hz by the United Nations’ “International Standards Organization” (ISO) to 440 hz. The remainder of this expose will consider the questions: Why was this done, by whom, and more importantly, does a mere 8 hz. change even matter at all?
As we explore these questions, consider the words of the Prophet Isaiah: “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound. (Isaiah 61:1) I submit this is exactly what Christian “pastors” and “worship teams” are supposed to do for Christ – use Christ’s WORDS (which are vocalized frequencies of sound) as prompted by the Holy Spirit, as well as pure MUSIC (Tone Frequencies of Sound) to 1. bring “good tidings” (the Gospel message) unto the humble, meek hearts who will accept it, 2. to HEAL THE BROKEN AND HOPELESS who need the Hope of Christ in their lives, 3. to proclaim LIBERTY to those held captive by the DARK IGNORANCE of the Adversary of Christ, and 4. OPEN UP THE PRISON DOORS TO THEM THAT ARE BOUND. (To me, that means the good Mormon people and their false priesthood of Baal that “Binds (make people’s souls bound or imprisoned) on Earth as well as in Heaven”).
Is it just a coincidence that the entire complete ARAMAIC/HEBREW text of Isaiah 61:1 has a precise, numeric (gematria) value of 5,184? You see, each Hebrew letter has a specific number value assigned to it. The individual letters with their specific number value then combine to make words, and the words then make up sentences, and sentences make up biblical verses (remember, “verse” actually means SONG – or FREQUENCY) each having a specific numeric value attached. Throughout the entire Old and New Testament, the number 12 is universally a sacred, special number tied to witnessing of Christ and Him Crucified. 5,184 just happens to be 432 x 12. Coincidence? Also consider that 432 just happens to be a “Trinity” number – meaning that it is evenly divisible by the TRINITY NUMBER of Three. 432 divided by 3 equals 144. Does 144 times 1,000 (144,000) mean anything to a devout Christian? The numerical code clearly shows that the NUMBER 144 is what qualifies a Christian to be invited to the “wedding feast” of spiritual salvation – not a specific, limiting number of individuals. Hopefully there will be many, many thousands of “saints” who have the number 144 in their forehead (the location of the pituitary gland, the human center of spiritual intuition, which is scientifically proven to be activated and opened by 432 hz. “solfeggio” tones in music.)
Is it just a coincidence that the Hebrew word ויתודו (yadah) which in English is translated as PRAISE has an exact gematria value of 432? This is also true with the Hebrew words שלומנו (Shalom) English translation, “Peace”, and ומושיע (yasha’) English translation: “To Save”? How about בנפש (nephesh) the “SOUL” – which also equates to 432? Other Hebrew words with exact 432 gematria are translated into English as the indivdual 432 value words: Seek, Honor, Clean, Sight, and Satisfy. What about the Greek New Testament language? What individual words in the New Testament also have a specific gematria value of 432? There are many, but the primary one is σεβεσθαι (sebomai) which in English is the word WORSHIP. How is it that the Greek word meaning WORSHIP has a gematria value of 432 on the nose? Do you still think that 432 is meaningless?
So, does it matter, spiritually speaking, to move the Concert A a mere 8 hz up to 440? Consider that the earth has a hz vibration of 8. Consider also that the cochlea receptor of the inner ear calibrates sounds to the brain stem at intervals of roughly 4 hz intervals. In other words, the human ear cannot distinguish between pitch change from 432 up to 435. But it can definitely distinguish a movement of 8 hz. even though it may be quite subtle.
But what about water? Since the cells of the human body are mostly water, (as is the brain especially) what are the vibrational changes (if any) between 432 hz. and 440 hz? There is a research scientist in England who has developed a sophisticated instrument to photograph and measure specific hz frequencies in water. This instrument is called a cyma (sound) scope. Look what happens to water at 432 hz. vs. 440 hz.:
Clearly, 440 hz. brings dissonance, disharmony, and corruption to the human cell matrix which is water based. Notice there are exactly 28 individual “rays” projecting from water in the 432 hz. image above. 28 equals 2 x 2 x 7. Using gematria we find that 28 is the number of the Hebrew word ביהוה which means Yehovah 0r LORD!! It is also the number for החיה (chay) or LIVE in English, and דדך (dowd) Beloved, as well as והזבח (zebach) – the English word SACRIFICE! Notice how 440 hz. ERASES THIS NUMERICAL SPIRITUAL MESSAGE FROM THE CELLS AND THE BRAIN??
In another cymascope image, the TRIANGULAR CONSTRUCT (i.e. the Trinity Function) of 432 hz. is also clearly seen:
Now, let’s play “the devil’s advocate” for a minute. Suppose you were Satan – the arch-enemy of Christ and hated above all His message of salvation. Suppose you as Satan knew fully well the impact of 432 hz – the very SONG OF CREATION – would have on the hearts, minds and souls of people. How would you seek to stop the vibrational message and sanctification process inherent in the message? Would you eliminate music altogether, or would you TWIST the music ever so slightly and in the place of PEACE, HARMONY and LOVE, put WAR, ANGER, DISEASE and PESTILENCE frequency in its place?
Consider then the gematria of the number 440 in the following biblcal words: מת (muwth) English word DIE, תגזל (gazal) SPOIL, תחבל (chabal where we get the word cabal) which in English means TO DESTROY! 440 also just happens to be the gematria value of ופילגשהו (piylegesh) CONCUBINE, ותלבב (labad) RAVISHED or RAPED, גלותא (galuwth) CAPTIVITY, גזלת (gezelah) VIOLENCE, and מעשיך (ma`aseh) WORKS. That’s just a sampling of the Hebrew gematria value of 440. Look at the Greek gematria of 440 value: νοσον (nosos) DISEASE, καταργει (katargeo) DESTROY, αποθανεισθε (apothnesko) DEATH or TO DIE, παθηματα (pathema) SUFFERING, σπιλον (spilos) TO DEFILE, διακρινομενοι (diakrino) TO DOUBT, and finally, μνηματα (mnema) SEPULCHRE or TOMB.
Do you really believe that changing 432 by a simple number of 8 is meaningless and “doesn’t matter”? According to the gematria code of God’s Word, it matters a great deal indeed.
Now for the final piece of the puzzle – WHO was responsible for changing Concert A 432 hz. to the destructive 440 hz? Ultimately, we have to point the finger at the biblical “Synagogue of Satan” (Revelation 2:9 and 3:9) The fact is, an agent of the godless globalist, John D. Rockefeller, a man by the name of John C. Deagan spearheaded the effort in America during the first three decades of the twentieth century. Using Rockefeller funding and “grants” – Deagan built a mammoth musical instrument factory in Chicago and flooded North America with specialty percussion instruments tuned to 440 hz. These instruments were often given en masse to schools and university orchestras. Musical professionals accepted the Trojan Horse (the gematria of horse in Greek is also 440) largesse with very little questioning. All they had to do was retune their strings and other instruments a small 8 hz. up to 440 in order to be “in tune”. By the mid 30’s, the takeover of America’s music to the devilish 440 was completed. However, in Europe (especially the Opera Houses and Orchestras of France) – the “440 movement” was met with fierce and very vocal opposition. In Germany and Austria, the Nazi “Minister of Propaganda” Josef Goebbles, backed by the very popular composer Wagner, spearheaded the 440 hz. “renaissance” for the “NEW GERMANY”. It is a fact that the Nazis focused much of their hate and enmity on the CULTURAL MUSIC CENTERS of France during their occupation – for the very reason the French musicians were EXTREMELY OUTSPOKEN OPPONENTS of the “440 movement” happening in America and Germany. In the U.K. the CITY OF LONDON FINANCIAL DISTRICT of the House of Rothschild successfully removed 432 hz. and replaced it with 440 hz. in much the same manner as Rockefeller’s agent Deagan did in America during roughly the same time period.
Following WWII, the Rockefeller/Rothschild money CABAL installed the UNITED NATIONS in New York City, – which in turn established the ISO (International Standards Organization) in London, who in turn declared 440 hz. to be the STANDARD TUNING OF INSTRUMENTS WORLDWIDE. Immediately, over 40,000 petitions from internationally recognized professional musicians and musical organizations were collected and presented to the ISO. These 40,000+ petitions consisting of millions of signatures were summarily ignored and dismissed, however. Imagine the uproar if the ISO sent out an edict that a U.S. gallon would no longer be 4 quarts, but instead would be 4.2 quarts! Why change a standard that the world had recognized and honored for over 3,000 years? What was so horrific and wrong about 432 hz. that it should be altered? Conversely, to any skeptics reading this and subscribe to the false notion that “it doesn’t matter” – then I ask you – WHY DID “THEY” CHANGE IT THEN?? Moreover, why set it as a WORLD-WIDE STANDARD?
In closing, let me reiterate the reality. There is just ONE God, just ONE Creator of the Uni (one) Verse (song). There is just ONE NAME given under Heaven whereby the souls of man may be saved. There is, then, just ONE governing base “keynote”. God is not the author of confusion and dissonance – but don’t forget that the adversary is. Don’t be deceived by individuals who would try and tell you that 444 hz. is the “true” frequency and 528 hz. is the “frequency of Love” which only appears when 444 hz is the tuning of Concert A. Understand that 444 hz. is just as destructive (maybe even more so) that the 440 hz. And never forget that the NUMBER of the BEAST, the “King of the Demons” (Matthew 10:25) called βεελζεβουβ (Beelzeboul) BEELZEBUB in the Greek Text is literally the number 528 as counted in Matthew 10:25.

TOP REASONS FOR CHRISTIANS TO RE-EMBRACE 432 HZ INSTEAD OF THE HARMFUL 440 HZ.
1. 432 hz. is the governing frequency of the created universe as measured by planetary alignments and orbital movements.
2. The Ancient COVENANT HEBREWS used 432 hz. tuning on their instruments, and it became the basis of WORSHIP and OBLATIONS in the Hebrew Temple and Tabernacle, and later, the standard keynote pitch of Christian music worldwide.
3. Despite over 40,000 petitions from musicians to have international concert pitch remain unaltered at A=432Hz, concert pitch was changed to A=440Hz in October of 1953 by the International Standards Organization (ISO). If something’s clearly not broken, and people are happy with it, why try to change it?
4. Maria Renold’s book “Intervals Scales Tones and the Concert Pitch C=128hz” shows rather conclusive evidence that 440Hz and raising concert pitch above scientific “C” Prime=128hz (Concert A=432hz) “disassociates the connection of consciousness to the body and creates anti-social conditions in humanity”.
5. Many professional musicians have declared that A=432hz music seems to them to be non localized in nature, and can appear to fill a room, whereas A=440hz can perceived as directional or linear in sound propagation.
6. If Hitler, Goebbles, Rockefeller and Rothschild were proponents of 440 hz., is it really peaceful and beneficial to human beings?
7. The original Stradivarius violins were designed to be tuned to A432 ONLY. Many professional musicians have complained that the raising of concert pitch to 440 hz. or higher caused undue stress or warping of their expensive acoustic instruments such as their Stradivarius violins, and that 440 hz damages a singers vocal chords especially those of professional opera singers.
8. Dr. John Coleman in his seminal book “The Committee of 300” documented the “elitists” desire to control the collective consciousness of humanity. Their use of A=440Hz as “pitch control in mass media” pushed hourly and daily through radio & television as the “British Invasion” of Rock & Roll was, according to Dr. Coleman, intentionally designed to create anti-social behaviors and to increase chronic disease states in the general public.
9. The inventor of the Cymascope, John Stuart Reid declared on his Facebook page: ““432Hertz is a harmonic of light frequency – it ‘speaks’ or ‘resonates’ directly with our cells. All cells communicate with each other via infrared light so I imagine that when they receive music in 432 Hertz they are in joy. The conscious ‘you’ may not be aware of this, but most of what goes on in our bodies is sub conscious, thankfully! You can read more about how all sounds create infra red light in the physics section of our web site CymaScope™ ”
10. 432 is THE ONLY resonant frequency that is capable of naturally reproducing what is called the “Pythagorean Musical Spiral” in the water of the human cell. Its the same sequence of growth that all life follows. It utilizes the formula of “Phi” also know as the “Golden Mean” and is also found in the “Fibonacci sequence” throughout all of nature.
11, The notes that come out in the A = 432 scale end up as mostly, whole numbers, and are divisible by 3. John Stuart Reid quotes, using the Cymascope/cymatics technology: “432 Hertz pops out as a triangle, every time we image it. We thought there was something wrong with the Cymascope, but after trying for more than an hour we concluded that the number 3 was somehow universally connected to 432 Hertz.”
12. According to the harmonic principle by which any produced sound automatically resonates all the other multiples of that frequency, when we play C at 256 Hz, (when A is tuned to 432 hz) the C of all other octaves also begins to vibrate in “sympathy” and so, naturally, the frequency of 8Hz is also sounded. This is why (together with many other mathematical reasons) the musical pitch tuned to 432 oscillations per second is known as the “scientific tuning.” This “scientific” tuning was unanimously approved at the Congress of Italian musicians in 1881 and recommended by the physicists Joseph Sauveur and Felix Savart as well as by the Italian scientist Bartolomeo Grassi Landi. In contrast, the frequency chosen in London in 1953 as the worldwide reference frequency and which all music today has been tuned to, has come to be defined as ‘disharmonic’ because it has no scientific relationship to the physical laws that govern our universe, and exhibits no “Harmonic Principle” of the sacred number 8.
In conclusion, God is omnipotent and omnipresent, and is fully capable of touching people’s hearts through Music and the Spoken Word, even if the music is presented in 440 hz. tuning. Many hearts have been touched by 440 hz. Christian music, and many will continue to be touched IN SPITE OF 440 hz. tuning – not BECAUSE OF IT! By no means is this writing meant to limit God in any way. HOWEVER, physics and universal laws still govern this planet. I can only imagine what GREATER WORK can be accomplished in His Name and for His Glory by embracing HIS PURE SONG by our Christian worship teams and in our daily walks.
In His Most Sacred Name –
