Chris Riss (Christopher Lawrence Rissanen) was born on September 27th 1988 in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. (On Vancouver Island). Much of his growing up years we’re marked by self indulgence, drugs, crime and mostly evil and negative living.
However, in 2007 Chris’ life took a turn for the better and he started to listen to God's voice. Slowly but surely by age 19 Chris grounded himself in the 'Word of God' found in the Holy Bible. On June 28th 2009, while attending a church service, Chris made the decision to fully surrender his life to the Lord Jesus and he was baptized in the Holy Spirit. That same day Chris was then taken to the ocean waters off Qualicum Beach where he was baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of his sins and in open confession that his unrighteous past was buried forever in the waters. Chris rose out of those waters to new life in Jesus and immediately he started to share his new found faith with others. Since then Chris has spent much time in expressing his faith, and at the same time warning and ministering to others with love through multiple forms of connecting and distributing uplifting songs of his own creation blessed in Jesus name.
Chris Riss DesRiss - Epistle (Flo Rida - Whistle RE-MAKE)
From what I remember I had heard the song “Whistle” on the radio by hip hop/ dance artist “Flo Rida” and at first I thought nothing of it because it was just another typical worldly party song, and since becoming a Christian I had stopped listening to all worldly music. Until one day it hit me! I had been outside my friend’s house talking with some buddy’s and in the background I heard Whistle playing on the radio. Something powerful came over me and I had suddenly felt severe love emotions for my fiancé. The sound of the chorus melody sounded so beautiful to me. I dropped what I was doing and made my way inside the house to fully listen to the song. Although the melody sounded beautiful I realized that the lyrical content was promoting UN-Godly sex.
Soon after The Holy Spirit started speaking to me about redemption and all sorts of emotions were stirring in my spirit. I felt an overwhelming sense of compassion for people and once again realized how Satan influences people through the power of music. After all Satan AKA Lucifer originally worshiped God with music before he rebelled and God cast him out of Heaven down to earth. I felt compassion for Flo Rida and hoped that he may find Jesus Christ before it’s too late. I figured if no one had told Flo Rida about Jesus then I would be the person to tell him. I believe God placed the idea on my heart to redeem the Whistle song and hopefully reach Flo Rida’s heart.
