#50 Roth Whyler

Surrounded by 12 guitars in his home studio we talked with Hans Albers, known as Roth Wyler to those of us on SoundCloud!
We felt particularly blessed to have this opportunity to talk with Hans because he’s just recently been a victim of having his SoundCloud and FaceBook accounts hacked and erased by a person or a program made by a person.  So many of us are really sad that his music is missing from SC and hope that there is some way his music and the history with them can be recovered.  Until his SC site is restored or rebuilt we can find him on youtube where he has a few videos with music under Roth Whyler.  In our talk with Hans today we shared some heavy words and feelings over the concept behind the writing of his feature tune.  Our conversation took us to many areas of thought about how we hurt others in our lives.  Hans brought us back to his original feelings behind his writing and we know you will be glad to see Hans as we visit with him and discuss his composition entitled, “The Princess and the Thief.”

Lead Scripture:
Isaiah 28:16
Therefore, thus says the Lord God, behold, I am laying in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tested stone, a precious corner stone, of a sure foundation:  he who believes will not be in haste.
Jesus is the Corner Stone.  He is the Foundation.  Believe in him and ask him for forgiveness.  He is the one who truly loves you and took the punishment in our place for all the wrong we have done.  He went even further than that; he then laid his blessings on us too!

The Princess and the Thief

This is a story dealing with the tragedy of love.
It’s a flash back of a Don Juan realizing how many hearts he had broken, how many dreams he had destroyed, how much pain and tears he had given – and no chance for him to repair.

Scriptures from Interview:

MONU notes:

Nahum 1:3
The LORD is slow to get angry, but his power is great, and he never lets the guilty go unpunished.
Rejection of salvation is eternal death. How can our sins be pardoned?? Can our God who is so pure and holy forgive us?  If so, then how? God cannot accept us if we willingly continue in our sins and refuse his offer of forgiveness on his terms.  God is love and he has made a way for us to be forgiven.  We just have to receive what he has done for us in his Son Jesus!

How can we ask for forgiveness?

John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it.

Romans 10:13-14
For “anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him?
“Calling” means, asking for mercy, help and love and repenting of the wrong we have done. Why does believing show true repentance or accepting action by a person??

John 3:19-21
Their judgment is based on this fact: The light from heaven came into the world, but they loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. 20They hate the light because they want to sin in the darkness. They stay away from the light for fear their sins will be exposed and they will be punished. 21But those who do what is right come to the light gladly, so everyone can see that they are doing what God wants.”

Carolyn notes:

I Kings 11:1 
1Now King Solomon loved many women…” 2bHe clung to these in love.  3  He had 700 wives, princesses and 300 concubines – and his wives turned away his heart to other gods, and his heart was not wholly true to the Lord God as was the heart of David his father.  (Solomon took wives of people who served false gods). 

There are men in the bible who loved many women, including many of kings, even though the law states that a king is only to have one wife.  God knew that we find true fulfillment and companionship when we are devoted to one person.  He also knows that when we are true to one another that we are better protected from pain by lost hopes and dreams for the future.
The Old Testament tells so many times how God wanted to show his love to the world through his people.  Every one of us as groups of people would have made the same mistakes and been just as stubborn.  We all have the same failings in our lives today.  We may not turn to idols of wood and clay to worship but we do in a sense worship things our hands have made by seeking to fulfill ourselves in our way of choice and doing things our way.  God continues to look today to find those who will be faithful.

Isaiah 12:2
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, he has become my salvation.
Since people, any people, could not fulfill God’s purpose, God did it himself.

Proverbs 28:13
Confess and forsake transgressions to obtain mercy.

Proverbs 20:20
A faithful man will abound with blessings.

Jeremiah 3:1b-2a
1b …But you have lived as a prostitute with many lovers—would you now return to me?”
declares the Lord.  2 “Look up to the barren heights and see. Is there any place where you have not been ravished?  By the roadside you sat waiting for lovers, sat like a nomad in the desert…
God is our true love.  He holds his arms outstretched to us day and night calling for us to return to him.  Can a harlot return to God and be cleansed and redeemed?  Yes!  Rahab the harlot believed and by faith in God she was redeemed and did not perish.  She is in the genealogy line of Jesus himself.  So, there is hope for me and you in Jesus too!
