Did you ever wonder where the Word of Faith teachings came from? What about the Positive Confessions teachings...or The Secret? Surprisingly, the all have the same New Age/ Occultic roots. Don't believe me? That's fine, we're all entitled to our own opinions. But what if someone could prove it to you? Would you even be interested in hearing his case?

This is the beauty of apologetics. It helps us to dig our heels deeper into the things that we believe by putting them to the test of history and realities that helped forge those beliefs and teachings. Sometimes we have deeply rooted truth along with deeply-rooted superstitions, and it's hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. A wise man once said " the truth will always have the best argument". It really is a beautiful thing, that in this day and age, you can verify historical facts from the comfort of your living room using the Internet. You can access books and countries that you could never travel to, and bring the pieces of the puzzle together. So what do you say? Interested in finding out more?

The Legend of Xero

Jashae Slaughter is Back!


On the way from someplace else I stumbled upon a young man with vision, he was spiritual looking deeper into his soul and the soul of man. He knew instinctively that the music in his mind was taking him deeper inside himself, discovering the internal cervices that allowed him to roam so freely within his cage, well knowing that he was in sacred hallows. His search for the divine led Jashae to music as music is the food of love. It was his doorway for his passion. His numinous mind led him to a deeply felt experience. It changed his life and he was able to breach the cage, find his inner smile; accept and let go unburdened by the weight of previous experiences. At this point I was getting to know Jashae but within a blink of an eye, I lost him. He yearned to be close yet to be free. His task was to seek deep moral choices and merge with others. What is good and true is experienced as love and his heart reached out to that which is beauty. And suddenly he returned. It was worth the wait.

 Jashae tells the story

My Last Few Years

For the last few years, I've been chasing fame in every part of Michigan except my home.  I left Saginaw in search of a new life and traveled to many other towns and cities, performing for Churches, Festivals, and Youth Groups. During those years I also recorded 3 Albums, and and EP.  I am currently working on my next album entitled "Ascension: The Creative Power of the Imagination"with 1 song released in audio format and Music Video.

I decided to take some time off in 2014 so that I could focus on my family and move back home to Saginaw.  Now that I am back home, I've been exploring new ways of sharing my music and story, but instead of trying to spread it throughout the world, I've been focusing on my city and Church.  I believe that I have gifts that cam help people and I really want to change the world, the best way i know how, starting here at home.


Recording and Production

My latest release, "Love You Much (Ironseed Dubsmix)" is a composition I came up with while experimenting with dubstep last year.  I briefly changed my name to The Immortal Ironseed before re-assuming the Mantle of XERO once again, hence the sub-name of the song. 

The song features a House/Trance EDM framework, with elements of American Dubstep, as well as a Dubstep "solo" where rock songs might normally feature a guitar solo.  I also scrambled some snippets of various Gregorian Chants to create the haunting background vocals featured throughout the song.  I wanted the song to be both hauntingly beautiful, yet fearsome like a wolf lurking in the fog.

After I found a good working formula, I enlisted the help of Marquis Smith (Marq 9/11), a fellow producer and engineer, to help me polish the sound of the song.  He really brought it to life in the Mixing and Mastering.  This was all put together over about 3 months.  We finished the song in April of this year and started getting ready to promote.


Song Background

Search or hearts so that we will not be idle.
That is the thought that always came to mind whenever I worshiped to this song back in 2008. It was one of my dreams to become a worship leader at The International House of Prayer in Kansas City (ihop kc) and to meet Derek Loux and Misty Edwards. Today Derek is no longer with us, but his words live on through his music. Even though I never got the chance to meet him, his songs were a big part of my spiritual development as a young man.
This song is part of my continuing journey into spiritual enlightenment and maturity. My version includes all of the prominent genres that I hold dear, plus a few strokes of Gregorian Chants & American Dubstep. I hope that you enjoy it. 

Promotion and Hosting

Listener may preview the song in it's entirety on Youtube, and onSoundcloud, and Bandcamp once it releases this Saturday. It will also be available on iTunes, Amazon, and other digital markets.


Lyrics

(Verse 1)
Show me the distance
that You reached with love to me
Show me the depth of sin,
my hopeless depravity
Show me Your patience
given time and time again
Show me the ignorance
that I was drowning in

(Verse 2)
Show me the devilish way
I pushed You from my mind
Dark ingratitude
displayed time after time
Heaven's only Son
hung bloody on a tree
The Father crushed You
on the cross to set me free

(chorus)
I will Love You Much
give my body, soul and blood
I've been forgiven much,
Count me worthy to drink Your cup

Open my eyes to the mysteries of heaven
Of infinite crimes, I've been forgiven

Jashae Slaughter is Back!

Today I learned that #PDFM is on the iTunes Charts at #96 of at least 4 countries: France, Botswana, Lithuania, and Thailand. I'm glad to see our music and message spread across the globe, to places I've never been. Hopefully, these are all places I'll get to visit one day :-)

After reading this blog, be sure to hit up Elohin and Edify for a high-five and kudos!  Great job guys!



You can help us climb the charts by getting your copy of #PDFM today!


Today I worked on Auryn, preparing it for exporting.  I had a ton of glitches and mistakes in the session file, but I cleaned it up quite nicely. It seems that All of my session files have extra midi notations added, randomly  to every loop.  So now I have to go in and clean them up.  I'm also going to have to redo some of the songs from scratch because at least 1 project was lost in my upgrade from FL Studio 11, to FL Studio 12.

Here are some screenshots:

BEFORE:

Everywhere that you see overlapping loops, is where the glitch added random notation. it sounds a lot worse than it looks. the mixer is all over the place.


AFTER 2 Hours:

You can start to see where I cleaned it up, rplaced lost samples, and consolidated the mixer some.  I also have some drum loops where i couldn't find the added notations, So I'll have to reprogram those loops later.



So You can expect to start seeing more posts about the progress of the album as it comes along.  Thanks for all your support.

The Return of Christ

I recently had my attention redirected to Matthew 24/Luke 21. I find it interesting that everyone who is crying that the sky is falling seems to miss Jesus words when he says not to be frightened when you hear about wars and rumors of wars. Basically, things are not as bad as we think they are. On the contrary. American Christians have it pretty freaking good right now. We don't have the government taking our doors down, and we don't have anyone hanging this in the gallows, or drowning us with our hands tied behind our backs, or burning us at the stake. And yet, these were all the fates of many Christians 1000 years ago who are being persecuted by the geopolitical "Church".

It's actually unsettlingly weird that we have it so easy, when our brothers and sisters are having their hands and feet cut off overseas right now. People are being held hostage, and having their children taken away from them simply for believing in Christ. And yet every time there's a news broadcast about an earthquake, we have someone screaming that it's the end times like this is the worst time in history. It's really not the worst time in history guys. Things have actually been a lot worse for Christians worldwide, & I think its time that we actually start looking at the facts rather than poetic sermons that don't make any sense intend to be contrary to Scripture.

The disciples asked what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the AION (age). Many bibles misinterpret the Greek word AION as WORLD instead of what it really means which is AGE. Many church teachers today agree with this and also agree that the age being referred to is the OLD COVENANT AGE. Historically the Old Covenant age ended with the destruction of the Hebrew temple by the Roman army in 70 AD. Most pulpits today preach Matthew 24:4 is asking about the end of the WORLD, however, Jesus clarifies the time period by saying THIS GENERATION (meaning the generation he was speaking to all His preaching life) would not pass away until all these things were fulfilled. Historically Mathew 24 has been fulfilled just as Jesus declared.

It's also worth noting that Jesus tells us it is not for us to know when the father is coming back (Acts 1:7). So all of this watching the skies instead of doing as our master commanded us to do is nothing but a superstitious waste of time. Even if you choose to ignore hyperbole, poetry, and quotations that are taken directly from Old Testament passages, you have to at least take into consideration that the only thing that sounds like the literal end of the world are the division titles at the beginning of the chapters. Titles that were not added by the original authors, but added much later.

We've got to stop looking at the Bible as chapters and verses (broken into small isolated texts), but as a story that is worth knowing. Compare the way the story begins with the way that you've been taught it ends. It simply doesn't make sense. That's not the love story that God started writing way back in Genesis. If you were just going to end it all then why would he allow the rest of the story to go on as it has? He has a very different plan than something that was cooked up by a Jesuit 500 years ago (and re-popularized in 1830 AKA The Futurist View...thanks Darby).

So the next time you think about the Lord's return , ask yourself something. When he returns, would you rather be found holding up some sign telling everyone that the sky is falling, or do you want to be found building the kingdom?

The Sky is Falling

Monday, January 18, 2016

I was recently approached by Dan Henderson of Think Twice TV? Media Messengers to write out my story.  I admit that I took longer than most would, as I find it hard to write my life in a way that is fair or comprehensive.  So I took the approach of a story that would appeal to someone who is in a dark place and might feel like they are the only one.

I know what its like to feel that way, and even during my best times in life, I felt like I was at my worst. I'm an enigmatic character to many, so I hope this tale bring light and hope to those in Darkness. Read the story HERE.

FUN FACT: This is my first time having anything published in Spanish :-)
