To fully appreciate and recognize the uniqueness, maturity and gifting upon the multi-faceted ministry of ‘FULL ARMOR MUSIC’, truly requires a deep appreciation for the 30 plus years of experience, fruit and calling that has helped shape and define this Spirit formed, passionate and anointed work.
The intense heart of every song written as well as every message spoken can be traced back to the pioneering hearts of men such as David Wilkerson, author of ‘The Cross and the Switchblade’ and Victor Torres, founder of New Life for Youth and author of 'Son of Evil Street' to early Christian music giants Larry Norman and Phil Keaggy, who are among the premier pioneers of Christian contemporary music.
These men, songs and messages were among the first Spiritual influences upon the heart and life of David Hirsch, founder of ‘FULL ARMOR MUSIC’ and founding member of ‘FULL ARMOR’, and THE KEY OF DAVID’. David also serves as Senior Pastor of New Life Outreach International Church in Fredericksburg, Virginia, along with His wife Wanda, their two children, Adam and Sarah along with their families and children.
“I am deeply thankful that The Holy Spirit allowed my heart to be originally influenced by men who so wholeheartedly love and serve the Lord, without ever compromising the pure life saving message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ”, shares David Hirsch. “There must be in every expression of Ministry a total devotion and wholehearted desire to lift up, express and present the true character and nature of Jesus Christ. God is daily committed to forming His Son’s nature in us, so we should be equally committed to having that same nature formed and released in, upon and through our Ministry and witness.
We must hear the voice of The Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul who said, “For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified”, (1Cor.2:2), and “For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.”(Acts 20:27).
Any amount of exposure or experience over the last 3-4 decades in the realm of the Ministry will tell you that messages and music that flows only from the hearts of men or a conforming to this world will only disappoint and fall empty to the ground, especially in light of the great challenges and needs that people face every day. For true life changing, victorious and eternal impact – only the anointing breaks the yoke. “...Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit”, says the Lord of Hosts, (Zechariah 4:6), should have it’s unconquerable seal upon every form of Ministry today, whether in the Church, or the Church taking the Gospel in various forms into the world. All Edification and Evangelism must be the unmistakable Voice of God upon this generation or we will miss the mark again and again.”
In Ezekiel 44 we see the heart of God commending, blessing and recognizing the ‘Sons of Zadok’ who “Shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the unholy, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean”. The ‘Sons of Zadok’ were in stark contrast to the ministers that God was taking issue with who were performing the work of the Ministry according to the heart and desires of the people, not the Heart and Will of God.
This is the line that God is drawing again today in order to reach this generation, regardless of age, color, music preference or background. He is looking for those ministers who are willing to go “Beyond the Veil’ to experience and receive His Heart so that His Word will be brought forth in Spirit and in Truth.
Jesus said, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John4:23-24). Jesus said that this is the kind of worship that the Father seeks and there is no doubt that the work of the Ministry is a deep and profound expression of worship.
The multi-styled music expressions that flow out of ‘FULL ARMOR MUSIC’ represents the spiritual desire of Paul the Apostle who said (“…I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.”) (1st Cor.9:22-23). Through the maturity and wisdom of the Spirit, all of this is accomplished without ever lowering the standard of God’s Holy Word, or a conforming to the world in any way.
Every aspect of the Ministry of ‘FULL ARMOR MUSIC’ stands upon the foundation of Scripture and is fully yielded to the leading of the Spirit of God according to His will, with the single purpose of bringing glory to His Name.
