Based on the biblical harp (Kinnor) that  David used
as a shepherd boy and later to sooth King Saul when
he was oppressed by an evil spirit.....
Is it possible,that the harp that figured so prominantly
throughout the old testament scriptures......the sounds
that were used to inspire tremendous worship to the
Lord God in ancient times.....could be restored to the
church TODAY?....?
  It seems impossible that the gentle "ZAMAR"
(Hebrew: "touching the strings in praise") can replace
our twanging guitars and"sophisticated" keyboard
sounds.....and yet....even the most modern church has
a gentle time of "waiting on the Lord".....
Could the ancient harp be a catalyst to prepare frantic
minds and troubled hearts to recieve from God's
fruits of ....LOVE...JOY...PEACE......
God's Power manifest through the Harp
The harp was the national instrument of ISRAEL,
and was used constantly as an instrument to praise
God by and to declare his goodness,faithfullness
power and mercy....It was used on it's own and at
times accompanied flute and cymbals to prepare
the way for the prophets to prophesy......
Below is a short list of times when the harp was
used by Israel (and the Lord God........)
