New music: Kol Simcha – Let God Arise

Yet more new music to roll us into 2016: vintage Messianic music newly added to Chavah Messianic Radio today. The classic Messianic music group Kol Simcha of the 1970s have inspired many Messianic musicians today, and their songs have been covered numerous times. Today, we add one of their later albums, the 23 year old album entitled Let God Arise. Kol Simcha – Let God Arise Enjoy the new music, fine Messianic music fans!

New music: Christopher Mann – Or (Light)

Shalom, Messianic music fans. Before 2015 comes to a close, we’ve added a brand new album to the station: Christopher Mann – Or (Light) This is a brand new album released just the other week. Christopher generously sent the album to us for play on Chavah Messianic Radio – hallelu, thanks Christopher! This is Christopher’s second album on Chavah. His first album, Keren Yeshua (Horn of Salvation) , has been very well received, with several songs ranked highly by you Chavah fans. Fine Chavah fans, would you bless Christopher by purchasing his album ? This supports Messiah’s musicians, and I believe it’s encumbent on us to do so as a mitzvah to further God’s kingdom. Blessings to Christopher for contributing his music on Chavah, and blessings to you, fine Chavah fans, for supporting him by purchasing his music .

Chavah..and Christmas music?

Shalom, folks. I received an email from Chavah listener Marie G. this week. She heard a song that started off in Hebrew…then ended in a Christmas song! The song she heard was Marty Goetz - Maoz Tzur / Hark the Herald Angels Sing . It’s a traditional Hanukkah song, Maoz Tzur, blended with the old hymnal, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, the familiar old Christmas hymn. In her letter, which was respectful and reasoned, Marie told me, “…it is difficult to be apart from the world during Christmas time…please don’t play Christmas music on Chavah.” She’s not the first person to tell me this. Every year, it seems, I get letters from folks saying that. The truth is, I’m not playing Christmas music on Chavah. Rather, there are some songs on Chavah that contain music we associate with Christmas, but by themselves contain nothing objectionable. For example, “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” is associated with Christmas, but in itself is a Biblical plea for Messiah’s return. It’s opening lines petition
