    Shalom James,

    We are friends of Kees and Haddasah, and earlier this year was Hilde with two of out kids in Jerusalem and she tried to have contact with you, but it was then not possible for you, you was in the north, …

    Haddasah informed us that you are coming to Switzerland and Holland and we also saw the dates on your website, …

    So your tour is ending in Swiss round august 17 and than you traveling to Holland is that with plane or car? Is there a possibility that you visiting us and so yes, what is the cost? We live in Belgium near Bruges (Brugge). We have in our house a speciale room for guests, so that is no problem, …

    From august 11 to 14 we have a Biblestudyweek with friends of us from Arad (Israël) and then they give also a few seminars on august 10, 17 and 24. So maybe there is a combination possible?

    Kind regards, Wim, Hilde and kids.

      No matter how well we know and fololw God, we can always ask him to increase our awareness and improve our obedience. Jesus echoed one of these requests in the sixth beatitude, God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.’ -LASBPsalm 86:11-14 is considered a prayer within a prayer and we are encouraged to commit this one to memory and use it often. Great song, mom!

    Hi James, I love your music – it’s helped me so much. I don’t understand or do facebook, so
    I can’t register a ‘like’, but I want you to know and say ‘Thank you’ to you.

    love Sally

    Dear brother,
    I am friend with Hadassah from Holland and she told me about you and your songs. I am going to play them in the morning in my home. She is telling me that it would be a blessing. I wish I could play them right now, but it is mid night here in Pakistan and I am waiting for my family to wake up so I can play them.
    Love Prayers and Blessings from Pakistan!

    Yours in Him,
    Sadaf

    It was a blessing and a inspiration to hear you on EliYah.com
    Yahs travels for you have been tremendous in the way he has refined your belief through the many ways he loves you and was able to pour His being in you strengthening you. Being in Jerusalem for Sukkot seems so Joyous with fullness of celebrating the workings of our Father, Abba Yah. Just a fantastic testimony brother. I’m so glad that Papa let me rejoice in hearing and witnessing his love and timeliness through you. Yah spreading edification and rejoicing through His music he has you share with fellow believers and being a welcoming media for seekers wanting to come to the truth, of the great Iam Iam that no one lives without, his works then now and forever into His everlasting kingdom. HIs kindness is surely everlasting. WOW Toda Raba Yahuah, Blessings Brother. Thanks

  14. Cheryl Van Herk says:

    Shalom James!
    I was praying today, asking the Father for beautiful worship music, and I found your songs. I am so thankful. As we have had our minds renewed by the word, we have realized that a lot of the worship music we listened to before was not correct as far as Biblical truth. To find Scripture put so beautifully to music, well, what a delight! May our Father bless you as you minister to His children.

    • James Block says:

      Shalom Cheryl,
      Thanks for writing. It is great to hear that you are so blessed by the music and that the Father led you to this music when you asked. There are more songs coming!

      Where are you from?

      Many Blessings from Jerusalem,
      James and Liz

      • Cheryl Van Herk says:

        I am from Ontario, Canada. It’s very cool that you were originally from Canada…where abouts? I would love to go to Israel…some day soon I hope. I am learning Hebrew and absolutely love it. It has helped me understand the Scriptures…
        I can’t wait til you come out with more albums, I have Selah and your instrumental album. Your piano music in your songs is lovely, my daughter would love the sheet music 🙂
        Blessings to you and Liz!

        • James Block says:

          Shalom Cheryl,
          I’m originally from Kelowna. It is about 4 hours east of Vancouver if you have never heard of it. I hope you will make it to Israel someday especially since you are learning Hebrew already.
          I’m not sure if you noticed but the second Selah album (Volume 2) is finished and available on the website so now there is 3 albums. The lyrics and chords are on the website as well but I don’t have the Piano sheet music at this time. Maybe sometime in the future.

          Blessing from Jerusalem,
          James

    • Hadassah says:

  16. Hyden Paul says:

    Please give me the chords for Isaiah 40 song. I play most of ur songs on guitar and also sing it.

  17. Helen B. says:

    Shalom my Brother and Sister in Messiah!

    Wanted to leave a comment on how much of a blessing your music has been to me. I was searching for Messiah praise and worship music and found you on Chavah Radio. I was instantly in love with the praise you offer to Yahweh through your music. It is so refreshing to hear praise and worship music according to Scripture and using the true name of Yahweh. I play all your songs almost daily as they truly minister to me; with my favorites being Overcome, Psalm 125, Great is Your Faithfulness and Psalm 90. I really love the piano and violin use in your songs-so beautiful! Thank you for your faithfulness to your gift and I pray you will continue to bless us with praise music as Yahweh blesses you through word and song. Can’t wait for the next CD! Be blessed my brother and much love to you and your lovely wife. Wish I was there in the beautiful land of Israel!-smile…Have a blessed day!

  18. Tikiri Rambukwelle says:

    Hi Jack
    We had an all age family service this morning and showed your youtube clip of Psalm 139 song during a prayer time. It was moving, I have downloaded your songbook and intend to use with our worship band. God bless you and Liz and the work you are doing in Jerusalem. We will remember you both in prayer.

    This music is such a blessing. I live in Vancouver WA USA and belong to COYJ as there is no Congregation of YHWH in the Pacific NW and it helps so much to be able to watch your videos on YouTube. Thank you. B”Shem Yahshua

  23. Deborah says:

    Shalom James,

    Praise Yah! I am so thankful that a friend directed me to your music. The Psalm 139 Song was the first I listened to and cried for happiness… so beautiful. I live in Vancouver, BC Canada and discovered you also used to live in this province. Please let me know when you might be touring out this way. Todah and Shalom 🙂

    • James Block says:

      Thanks for writing! I’m glad you discovered the music.
      I’m originally from Kelowna, B.C. not to far from you! I hope to make it to B.C. Canada sometime next year if we do a tour in the Northwest of U.S. It would be great to also do a worship meeting in Vancouver area. I’ll let you know if we end up going next year.

      James

  24. Hyden Paul says:

    Hi James,

    I pray you and your wife are well. Please let me know if you sell your music on cd. A poor dear sister I know is a shut-in and has no access to a computer and I would love to be able to send her your beautiful Yah inspired Psalms to lift her spirit.

    Thank you kindly and Shabbat Shalom 🙂

    so appreciate and love the Psalms in song. I played your YouTube playlist for hours.

  41. Cheryl Van Herk says:

    James, thank you for your latest album, Open the Gates. I listen to all your albums regularly, they are my favorites and have been since they came out. Having your sing Scripture feeds my soul and spirit and makes my faith grow and best of all, brings me closer to YAH in a way I never knew. That is most precious.
    Will you have time to provide guitar chords for this latest album? Thank you for providing the lyrics.
    May YAH bless you and your lovely wife. Shalom!

  42. Janet Flatt says:

    Shalom James and Liz!
    Reading your 2016 Tour schedule, I realized with a heavy heart that we missed your NW US tour dates. I’m sure it was amazing and that the Oil of YAHWEH flowed and blessed every soul attending in all your tour venues. I am so righteously blessed to have discovered your music in 2014 on YouTube and now have purchased Selah 2 and Open the Gates on iTunes and share with everyone who will listen. My sister in Yahshua and I are praying, waiting, watching, and preparing for the day when we leave this wicked “daughter of Babylon” and return to our Home in Yerushalayim. Longing for the day when our Bridegroom will return and rule the nations from His Beloved City of Elohim. “She’s like a bride in a bright white dress, adorn her with jewels. [We] want to be standing [there] when [He] comes for [His] jewels.”
    B’shem Yahsua, me atah ve ad-olam! HalleluYAH

  46. Bradbury Family says:

    Wow! Praise YHWH! My family and I are in the mountains of Idaho. Our nearest fellowship is two and a half hours away. We have listened and played your music for a couple of years.Your live broadcast is a tremendous blessing. Thank you for your service to YHWH to uplift HIS people.

  47. Larry/Vicki Scher says:

    We thoroughly enjoy your “scripture music.” We appreciate the fact that your lirics are based upon the scriptures only. We also appreciate the fact that you do not use words like holy, Jesus, and such as they are all pagan, but then that is the way of the world’s religions.

  48. Larry/Vicki Scher says:

    Thank you for all your “Scripture based” songs with Words that are truly inspiring for all of us.

  49. Dorothy Kelley says:

    Thank you for sharing…Lovely…

    muchas gracias James por bendecir nuestras vidas y permitirnos adorar a nuestro Padre así como lo hacían antes….Desde Panamá, un abrazo y que cada día nuestro ABBÁ Y ELOHIM siga dándote más y más inspiración para poder adorarle y exaltar su verdadero Nombre..YHWH

  52. Lorraine Loves Elohim says:

    Absolutely love your music James,it’s very uplifting and brings us all so much joy! YHWH Yahshua Ruach ha’Qodesh be with you always.All praise to YHWH our beloved Elohim.Shalom Brother James <3

  53. Larry/Vicki Scher says:

    We missed you very much. You are an important part of our Sabbath and we cannot thank you enough. We gave up listening to most praise music because of mixing pagan names with the true Names which is forbidden in Scripture:

    Exo 23:13  “And in all that I have said to you take heed. And make no mention of the name of other mighty ones, let it not be heard from your mouth.

    Jos 23:6  “And you shall be very strong to guard and to do all that is written in the Book of the Torah of Mosheh, so as not to turn aside from it right or left, 
    Jos 23:7  so as not to go in among these nations, these who remain among you. And make no mention of the name of their mighty ones, nor swear by them, nor serve them nor bow down to them.

    We all need to study the origins of the names that aare traditionally used as substitutes for the true Names.

    We are told to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

    Joh 4:23  “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father also does seek such to worship Him. 

    You have made a difference in our lives in an important area that we really needed.

    Yah bless you. Keep up the good work!!

  54. james cyr says:

    will you be worshiping live like you did a month ago .I know you had your musical instruments stolen .SATAN prefers you not to ,but YAHWEH wants you .YAHWEH BLESS you and your family

    • James Block says:

      Shalom James,

      We are still waiting on the Father to provide another place to have the worship gatherings. The equipment that got stolen wasn’t ours but we will still need some sound equipment wherever we end up doing the meetings.

      Thanks for your concern,
      James

  55. Esther Haverluck says:

    Recently a friend introduced me to your songs. LOVE, LOVE them. It is so important to infuse scripture into our minds. May Yahweh bless you immensely beyond your dreams. I introduced your songs to our Messianic Keheilah.

  56. Hi Brother James
    Thank you so much and God bless you.
    Indeed you have blessed many people by allowing the chords be downloaded free.. You have indeed bought wisdom and did not sell it.. WHich your efforts and strength had bought it and freely you give. God bless you.
    It helped me a lot with such an economical situation and album songs are quiet expensive. This i say are truly SPirit led.
    I am a disciple of Yeshua and I am blessed by this!
    Be Yahweh lifted up in all the efforts and accomplishments you do!!
    Be Blessed…

  59. Rylee says:

    Shalom achi!

    I was wondering if you ever plan on visiting America, Yahuah willing?

    • James Block says:

      Shalom Rylee,

      My wife and I were touring there last summer and the summer before. I’m sure we will come back sometime, I just don’t know when. I guess it also depends on what doors open in America.

      Blessings,
      James

  60. Sandy Babcock says:

    Thank you again, my Brother, for moving me into the Spirit of worship today on Shabbat. I remain there still. A friend and I were with you on a rooftop at a hotel in Jerusalem when we were there for Passover a few weeks back. There is nothing like singing Psalms about Jerusalem and dancing in the streets of Zion before our King…in Jerusalem! I remained in the Spirit for the next three hours, until we flew out to return home (Albany and Salem, Oregon, USA). I delight in the sweetness and purity of your spirit, as you lead us into worship. Anointed. May you and your family be deeply, richly blessed as you bless others. Next year in Jerusalem! Delight, delight, delight. Sandy

    • James Block says:

      Shalom Sandy,
      Thank you for sharing. I am very encouraged to hear that. We definitely had a special night of worship during Passover. To be on the rooftop was very unique and much better than being stuck in a building. Hope to see you again next year!

  64. Esther says:

    Dear James & Liz! I really enjoyed the worship event in Pretoria. For me a wake up call not to neglect praise&worship unto YHVH! Hope to see you again soon. May you be blessed in abundance. Shalom!
