Part III – Why Christian Worship Teams Should Tune to 432 hz. and Abandon 440 hz. (aka Rockefeller’s “Standard” or “Industrial” tuning).  By A.True Ott, PhD

In Part I – I showed the historical/archeological evidences that the earliest known instruments of the Hebrew nation of Israel were more than likely based on the “perfect fifth scientific tuning”, meaning our modern “concert A” pitch is tuned to 432 hz., and the other notes follow what Pythagorus and Johannes Kepler called the “perfect 3:2” ratios.  To be specific, “B” resonates at 243 hz., “C” at 256 hz., “D” at 288 hz., “E” at 324 hz.,  “F” at 342 hz., and “G” at 384 hz.  The perfect symmetry (remember harmony = symmetry in tones) is best shown in the following matrix, where the horizontal column shows the multiples of three, while the vertical column shows the multiples of two (3:2 ratios).  Notice that 486 (B2)/324 (E) = 1.5, 432 (A) /288 (D) = 1.5, etc.   Notice the enigma of the “F” note of 342 hz., however.   It is basically a “lone wolf” tone when compared to the “natural” 7 notes – it doesn’t fit the otherwise perfect ratios found in the other 6 (2×3) notes;  although it is indeed evenly divisible by three, and only becomes relevant in the chord harmony of the perfect fifths of the 12-note chromatic scale.   More on that later.

2 6 18 54 162 486 (B2)
4 12 36 108 324 (E) 972

32 96 288 (D) 864

64 192 576
128 384 (G) 1152

256 (C) 768

It may be easier to see the ratios and how “F” is basically a balancing “Harmonizer” of the 7 note scale by looking at this chart below:

F                       5+   11-   21+   43-   85+  171-  342+ (F is + or – 1/3 of C)

C    2    4     8    16    32    64   128   256   512 1024

G    6   12    24    48    96   192   384   768

D   18   36    72   144   288   576

A   54  108   216   432   864

E  162  324   648                            all in Hz

B  486

So why are these “harmonic” ratios so important to understand when choosing the most effective way to honor and worship our Creator by striving to become “one” or united with Him as we give Him our praise through music?  Simply because 432 hz. tuning more closely reflects the exact same harmonic ratios found in the creator’s universe – both in the “macrocosm” of outer space, i.e. the distances between planets, stars, and galaxies, but also the living cells and DNA chains of all living things created by Him!  This is the final conclusion of Johannes Kepler and many other scientists and physicists after lifetimes of study.  Like them, I likewise have found that the detailed predictions inherent in what is called the Harmonics Theory are confirmed by honest observations in the fields of cosmology, geology, atomic physics, economics, climate, biology and even that of human affairs!!  I must concur with Kepler’s declaration made back in the year 1618: “The universe is best described as a finely tuned musical instrument; and everything in it is vibrating in tune with the larger objects that contain it in their respective spheres. I believe that there are no other laws in the universe than this Law of Harmony.”   Indeed – I submit that all the other laws of physics appear to be merely the result of the basic causal uniform wave structure that leads one to observe and pay honor to the universal Harmonic law “In the Beginning”.

Keep in mind the very basic definition of “sound” is simply a moving wave of energy – very similar to an ocean “wave” with a measurable high and low “peaks and valleys” or “crests and troughs”.   Therein, the “hertz” measurement is simply the speed of the wave of sound – i.e. the number of times the wave’s peaks oscillate or move per second.  Little wonder that Jesus of Nazareth – the Living Word according to John 1:1-3 could command the wind as well as the ocean waves by merely saying three words: “Peace be still”.  Indeed, we still may echo the disciples words: “What manner of man is this! for he commands even the winds and water, and they obey him.” (Luke 8:25)

Is it just a coincidence that I have measured the audible sound of moving wind (especially through the trees) and waves (both fresh and salt water) – and have found that both sounds resonate measurable harmonics of A=432 hz.?   But it doesn’t stop there.  Song birds in all their incredible variety each “sing” their delightful songs rooted at 432 hz. tuning.  So do the whales and other marine mammals.  The insects such as crickets and cicadas all make their relaxing night music rooted in 432 hz., as do the croaking frogs and toads.   I have found that tumbling fresh water such as rivers, small streams, and waterfalls all are based in 432 hz. tuning.  I submit that is exactly why their sounds are so relaxing  and stress-relieving to the human soul who takes the time to listen.   Incredibly, certain deep caves and caverns actually emit a specific hertz energy frequency – once again, it is a perfect harmonic of 432 hz.

Then I took a rather large sampling of the sounds recorded by the Voyager deep-space probe.  Yes, distant planets, stars known as pulsars, and even galaxies all resonate tones of the pure harmonic root of 432 hz.  Leave it to “evil and conspiring” men controlled completely by the love of money, the biblical “root of all evil” to “standardize” music to the much more disruptive and universally dis-harmonic 440 hz. tuning.

Frankly, I find it quite amazing that certain good and well-meaning Christian  friends immediately begin to roll their eyes at me, as they mentally and emotionally run away while screaming “new-age” when I declare to them the novel concept that music tuned to 432 hz. has incredible, latent POWER to not only heal the mind, body and spirit of fallen man – but also is a very important aid in the devout Christian’s walk in the biblical process of sanctification – which is best described as the ultimate harmonic unity of mind, body, and spirit with  the Creator who we know to be Christ Jesus.  They are quick to say that such a concept is at best “non-scriptural”, and downright heretical at worst. Respectfully, I have to wonder what Bible texts they are ignoring concerning this topic, for to me, the music of David and his descendants is a central tenet of the biblical account of the sanctification process.

First of all, many are blissfully ignorant of the deeper numeric meanings found throughout the Holy Bible.  No, I’m not talking about Drosnin’s computerized “Bible Code” here.  I am talking about the biblical WORDS (i.e. frequencies of sound) themselves and their specific numeric values.   For instance the Hebrew word for LIGHT has a corresponding number value of exactly 144 – the 1st lower octave of the note D (288 hz) when A is tuned to 432 hz.    More importantly the Greek word for WORSHIP has a value of exactly 432.

I submit that if the Holy Bible is indeed “God-Breathed” or inspired and thus totally and completely divine in design and nature (2 Timothy 3: 13-17) – the unseen or “invisible” underlying number patterns of the words and sentences would, like all the “invisible patterns of nature” testify fully and completely as to “what manner of man” Jesus of Nazareth truly was – so that humanity can be left “with no excuse” at the day of Judgement and the Harvest.  (See Romans 1:18-20)  Good Christians: Ignorance is no excuse – the Word is clear on that too.

Christians should deeply consider the underlying reasons why Jehovah designed the advent of His coming on earth on a very specific genetic timeline (i.e. a “gene”ration or ‘generation’) as well as a very specific genetic bloodline.  If this was not important for us to know and understand, why is it that the first 17 verses of the New Testament are totally devoted to this?  Notice, the very first words of the Gospel of Matthew declares: “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.”  The generations are specifically numbered in verse 17: “So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.”  Specific patterns of NUMBERS and numerical ratios and sequences are very significant to the Creator, it would thus appear.

So why did Jehovah choose to manifest Himself on earth through the specific bloodline of David and the Tribe of Judah after a grand total of 42 gene-rations since He made the covenant promise to Abram?   What could possibly be so special about David and his genetics, as opposed to say Joseph and Ephraim’s?  David was, after all, quite dysfunctional and “human” in many quite sordid ways.  He was constantly falling victim to fleshly lusts and desires when he did his own thinking and followed his own prideful counsel – yet he always had his HEART and SOUL tuned to God in a very special and empowering way nevertheless.   I submit that the key (another musical term) to understanding David’s unique relationship to God is understanding the very special role that certain divine MUSIC had in his life, and the power it had to ALWAYS reconcile him quickly back to his beloved Jehovah, no matter what human failings and faults plagued  him during his life that caused him pain and anguish.

Let’s quickly take a look at David’s life and see what the numbers as well as the story symbolize.  We read in the Book of Samuel concerning the rise of Saul to be crowned King of Israel – yet Saul’s HEART was not right before God.   Because of this, he estranged himself from Jehovah and the young shepherd boy David was eventually anointed to take Saul’s place at some specific time in the future.

David was anointed and became the archetype of the promised Messiah – the lowliest of lowly shepherds would ascend to be King.  Notice David was the 8th son according to the account in I Samuel.  Notice also that the name JESUS in the Greek, numbers exactly 888, and that Jesus was officially given that name on earth on the 8th day following His birth, just as the angel directed Joseph to do in a dream.  Notice also that the numeric value (aka gematria) of the four-letter word LOVE is also exactly 8.  The name “David” means “the Beloved”.   Now why is this important? Consider that the earth itself has a measurable base hz. frequency of 8 hz.   8 hz. is also clearly one of the core base octave frequencies of the note or  “Key of C” when A is tuned to 432 hz. “scientific” tuning.  (See chart above.) Under 440 hz. tuning, the significance of 8 hz. completely disappears.  If the word “love” has a value of 8, does this shed any additional light on the scripture “For God so LOVED the World” (John 3:16).

Following his anointing to be King of Israel, we next find David first making the acquaintance of Saul, the sitting King, solely on account of David’s skill with playing the harp.  In 1 Samuel 16: 14-23 we read of what is perhaps the first account of physical as well as spiritual healing (i.e. the expulsion of unclean spirits) solely by means of music.  Clearly, the tones generated by David via his musical instrument banished the evil spirit that was plaguing King Saul.  The KJV declares: “so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him”.

But wait a minute, how could this lowly shepherd boy David (the Beloved) possibly know how to play the harp so well as to evoke specific MUSICAL TONES that would cause evil and unclean spirits to depart and so powerfully “refresh” and heal the King?  David wasn’t trained in Judah’s top, exclusively elite music schools was he?  I would submit that because David was “just” a lowly shepherd who spent his days and nights out in nature tending and protecting his beloved sheep from lions, bears and other dangers – he knew exactly how to tune his harp to the calming sounds of nature, and thus nature’s God, in order to calm the sheep – for he undoubtedly played and sang to them as often as possible.  Most good shepherds do just that!   And yes – you guessed it, a herd of sheep emit specific frequencies of sound that just as the crickets, frogs, and cicadas, are also tuned to 432 hz.  It is moreover very likely that David didn’t just go down to his local harp store in Bethlehem and buy himself an elaborately built instrument.   I would submit that David fashioned his own harp and tuned it to match the very sounds of nature that he himself had listened to over the years while tending the sheep both day and night.  I would submit that this process is exactly what forged the life-long bond between David and his God that served BOTH so very well, despite human weaknesses and failings.

It is hard for me personally to imagine that David could ever have achieved his level of sanctification and one-ness unto God, without these specific musical tones tied to the natural harmonics and the words of PRAISE he sang in those very harmonic tones.  I would also submit that Satan, and each of his fallen and unclean spirits, would like nothing more than to see humanity permanently divorced from these specific healing tones and frequencies of sound that the demonic hordes simply cannot abide.  What else would inspire men to change and alter the inherently richer, more powerful healing tones of nature and the Creator by just enough to create increased stress,  dissonance and agitation at the most primal level of the human brain and cellular functions?

Of course, prayer, scripture study and meditation can bring people to a knowledge of Christ, and forge a personal relationship with Him IN SPITE OF a dissonance musical tuning – not because of it.   You see, I was shown very clearly that the role of WORSHIP MUSIC in a Christian service, is to prepare the hearts, minds, and souls of men and women to receive God’s Word – just as a plow is designed to prepare a field to receive a seed that will take root and eventually bring forth fruit.  Music played in 440 hz. can plow the field and remove a few stones and rocks, but not nearly as deep and as effectively as music tuned to 432 hz. – which produces the ultimate “good ground” for the seed to take root.  Remember the parable found in Matthew 13:

18. Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. 19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. 20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. 22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. 23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.  KJV

 

 

 

The Bells of HOPE

The Bells of Hope

by Dave Boehi

Christmas was not a happy time for him.

His country was embroiled in a war he hated. His own son had returned home with severe wounds.

He also grieved deeply for his beloved wife, who had died after a freak accident in their home two years before. On the first Christmas after losing her, he wrote, “How inexpressibly sad are all holidays.” Six months later he wrote, “I can make no record of these days. Better leave them wrapped in silence. Perhaps someday God will give me peace.”

Indeed, the very idea of “peace on earth”—proclaimed by the angels upon Christ’s birth and echoed by the church bells he heard on Christmas Day—seemed like a terrible joke.

And so on Christmas Day in 1863, with the American Civil War still raging, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote a poem called “Christmas Bells.”

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men!

Today we know these words from the song that was inspired by Longfellow’s poem: “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.” Two of Longfellow’s verses, referring to the Civil War, do not appear in the song:

Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South
And with the sound the carols drowned
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men!

It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent
And made forlorn the households born
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men!

Longfellow’s next verse, which does appear in the song, may be the saddest words I’ve seen in a Christmas carol. They reflect the misery of a man who felt no hope:

And in despair I bowed my head;
“There is no peace on earth,” I said;
“For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men!”

Fortunately the poem does not end there. For somehow the Christmas bells that morning reminded Longfellow of a deeper truth:

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, goodwill to men!”

When life goes wrong

“I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” is one of my favorite carols because it is so honest and yet, in the end, so full of hope.

We all face times when life goes wrong and we feel despair. The despair after the death of a loved one, or the despair that accompanies a life-threatening disease. The despair of a marriage relationship that has drifted into isolation. The despair of a child who rejects everything you believe. The despair of a problem at work that you can’t solve, or a career that feels like it’s going nowhere. The despair of feeling powerless to break free of a secret sin.

Longfellow’s dark cloud began to lift when he chose to focus on the fact that God is alive, that He is sovereign and has a greater plan than we can understand. We will never see the type of “peace on earth” that so many long for, because the heart of man remains unchanged. But we can experience peace in our hearts when we put our faith and trust in the God who created the universe. I think that’s the kind of peace Longfellow finally experienced.

It’s the same truth that the biblical character Job understood after losing everything he had.  In the end he realized he needed to put his trust totally in God. “I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted,” he told God. “… Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know” (Job 42:2, 3b).

Choosing to trust God

Over the years I’ve interviewed a number of married couples who have experienced the type of hardships that doom many relationships—financial difficulties, death of a child, debilitating disease, and more. They all faced a crisis of faith, when they had to come to terms with the fact that life was not going to be as they had envisioned. They only experienced healing and peace when they acknowledged their trust in the God who created them and had a plan for their lives.

One husband, overwhelmed with the reality of raising a child with special needs and the pressure it was putting on his marriage, said, “I remember praying in the midst of my tears, Lord, I have nothing to believe in if I can’t believe You are good and You are sovereign. I’m not sure I feel that, but if it’s not true, then what’s life about? I am going to choose to believe that You would not allow anything but good to come into my life.

On that December morning in 1863, Longfellow recognized these same truths, that “God is not dead, nor doth He sleep.” Christmas reminds us that God demonstrated His goodness and sovereignty by sending His Son to live on earth and pay the penalty for our sin so that we could experience true peace with God. As Romans 5:8 tells us, “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

God reached down to a world of despair and gave it hope.

Then ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men!

Interestingly, I have discovered that the old church bells circa 1650-1875 were all calibrated to ring their tones based on 432 hz. with perfect fifth (3:2) ratios in the multiple bells in the church steeples.  Longfellow was very likely listening to multiple harmonic tones based in 432 hz. when he penned his incredibly inspiring words that Christmas Day! —- True Ott

THANKSGIVING – Give Thanks TO the Creator!

In our modern culture, Thanksgiving Day has largely degenerated into a day of counting blessings, feasting on lavish meals, and watching football rather than offering thanks TO the Creator, who supplies everything to us as a nation and as a people.

This past Thanksgiving Day, I took the time to take a long Nature Walk –  just to quietly observe and listen to the sights and sounds of nature.  During this time of reflection and meditation, my mind went back to the time I spent with my special Hopi Indian friends on the “2nd Mesa” of Arizona.  I reflected on their millennia-old music and dance rituals involving the flute and the drums.  On one of my visits, they presented me with a very special gift – a hand-carved flute.  Every time I blow through it and hear its tones, I am reminded of the special times spent with my Hopi friend Julian, and the spiritual connections we shared.

Now, with my new research concerning 432 hz tuning, I once again took up my Hopi flute and measured its hz tones. Yes – it registered  the low octave frequency of 144 hz – which is the “D” note when concert A is tuned to 432!

Then, just this morning, a friend sent me the following video produced by his “Native American” friend.   I couldn’t believe it! It was a Prayer of Thanksgiving TO the Creator.  I thrilled as I watched the video accurately depict both the MACROCOSM of the Creation CIRCLE OF LIFE (the core of the Kepler book “Harmonies of the World”) as well as the MICROCOSMIC WORLD of the created CELL and DNA – and then it hit me.  Could this Native American music be in the 432 hz. harmonic?  I pulled out my tuner – and YES – it is 100% 432 hz. based – exactly as my “TURTLE CLAN” Hope friends ancient drums and flutes were tuned for at least 2,000 years.  AMAZING!

It would appear the Native Americans had it right all along.  It is time we self-righteous “Christians” stopped to listen and learn a few things from them!

Bach Quote

Once or twice a generation, it seems that certain individuals are chosen by God to LEARN and clearly UNDERSTAND the complexities, yet simplicities of His incredible creation.  In the first 17 years of the 17th Century, while King James and his select team of 49 (7 x 7) scholars were busy preparing the “authorized version” of the Holy Bible (the most popular and world-changing literary volume ever to be printed), a German philosopher and musician named Johannes Kepler was at the same time being divinely taught about the incredible “Music of the Spheres” – specifically how the numbers of sacred “geometry” meshed in perfect harmony with the divine tones of the musical scale.

This is the ultimate, scientifically based “reason” why musicians and Christian “worship teams” should utilize A = 432 hz. tuning, and forever abandon what J.D. Rockefeller and his carnal, worldly minions dubbed the “Industrial Tone” of 440 hz.   Clearly ONLY the “scientific tuning” of A = 432 hz. incorporates all of the sacred geometry measurements of the heavens as well as the created earth divine ratios (such as the Radian) upon which the Christian believer dwells.
