Paul Wilbur is well-known Messianic worship leader who has spent his life singing worship songs. Born of a Jewish father and Baptist mother, Wilbur’s passion for music goes back to when he was 9 years old.
He is been making music for about 42 years and he has released many albums. However, there is something particular with his latest album because he says he believes his latest project called “Roar From Zion,” was a prophetic charge from God. Wilbur says it is as a prophetic shout to usher in the return of the Lord.
The well-known singer told The Christian Post “It’d been years since we’ve done anything live in Israel. And the passion for Jerusalem, the throne of the King, Kingdom of God, our Jewish people, has always been on the front burner of the purpose of our lives, the music that we’ve created.”
Wilbur assures that God was the one who gave him the title of the album. He described the moment saying that he came across a scripture that he’s read over many times before, Joel 3:14–16, which says: “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision for the Lord is near in the valley of decision. The Sun and Moon will be darkened. Stars no longer shine, The Lord will roar from Zion, and under from Jerusalem.”
“Those words, I know I’ve read them before, many times. But that day, they seemed to take on a whole new life,” he recalled. “If we’re not in the last days, I don’t know what the last days are going to look like. Many lives hang in the balance, and the decision to follow Yeshua, Jesus, or not, and most of them in Israel, still have decided not.”
He stopped reading the scripture to pray and that was when the Lord spoke to him, guiding him to go to Jerusalem and create a “roar from Zion”, Wilber affirmed.
