"Some people lead worship and others are worshipers. John Arends is a worshiper with a sound of heaven that is changing earth. I've had the joy of doing several conferences where John has brought the manifest presence by loving on God in such a way that it was easy to enter into the Spirit realm. I highly recommend the gift that John Arends carries for the Body of Christ and His Kingdom."

"I have caught up in the Presence of the Lord for past hour...overwhelmed...sitting here on a flight going home and realizing I am home as I am enraptured by worshipping Him. Truly a remarkable project. I wouldn't know which song would be my favorite...from the precious 'Sweet Nothings' which has me weeping as I write this...to the passionate 'Let the fire fall' which is quickly becoming a favorite at MOW events around the world...to the starting point that pulls you into His Presence and cries NOW IS THE TIME through the cry of the Lord of the Harvest in 'Here I am Revival Song'. All the songs carry a fresh sound...a sound for those who are rising throughout the earth as the greatest Harvest is offerred to them! Simply brillant. One of the most anointed 'studio' recordings I have ever heard! I can only compare the anointing level to some of the best loved worship albums I have in my collection. The early Delirious albums...Brian Doerksen...David Ruis...Daphne Rademaker... Rita springer... and Kevin Prosch - but so much more NOW in the sounds you released. It reveals not only the One you love...but it reveals Him to a generation ready to enter His Presence! Only one slight issue I have with the album...I missed being in the studio when when He was there with you recording it!
"I have had the priviledge of knowing John for several years nows. I watched him emerge as one of the most anointed powerful worship leaders and song writers I have known. Recently we went to Australia together (and are planning some other trips together too!) where worship exploded and the Presence of the Lord was very much revealed. I would like to commend all of his worship albums to you... and during the Christmas Season... particularly 'Little Strummer Boy' and 'Heaven Is Opened' (both contain mixes with Surpressa Sithole (Surprise) in the songs... it's amazing!)"
"From the moment I heard the music of John Gabriel Arends, I knew there was something very special there. Strong, catchy melodies paired with deep and meaningful lyrics, communicate a heart of worship and awe of the Lord that is unmistakable. I’m not surprised; our listeners seem to feel the same way. Since we began playing ‘Let Fire Fall’ and then the Christmas CD, ‘Little Strummer Boy’ last year, John Gabriel Arends has quickly become one of the favorite artists on our station."
"I can commend to you John Arends worship music. I have spoken at his Father's church where John is the worship leader and John really brings the presence of the Lord by his contemporary style of worship music. John is in my opinion one of the many younger christian musicians that God is using this day to usher in a new Day of the Lord."
"I love the fire and passion of John Arends. His songs are filled with hope and passion for victorious church."
"I do love your cd....How exciting! I for sure want to order some for Christmas gifts! I'm listening to it now! I pray abundant blessings!"
