2 Peter 1

By definition preaching, singing and the field of Theology violates all of the direct commands of God.  To do so denies that God exists, that no human can make Him known or mediate for Him, and that God sent His RIGHT HAND or ARM or WORD in the person of Jesus of Nazareth.  And as the body prepared for God He is Jesus the CHRIST of God: that involves God's personified Word, Grace, Righteousness, Spirit as it was Christ as the Rock and all of the manifestations of the invisible, inaudible Deity.

3.17.11 added below: 2 Peter 2 which proves that the Musical/Mythos race (Crooked Generation) use music which means "to make the lambs cumb before the slaughter."  They are ATHEMA which means that they have run to the "temple" for safety and occupation: once dedicated as a presumed ornament to enhance the temple (church) they cannot be redeemed and must be burned up.
Matt. 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

John 3:31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly,
        and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.
John 3:32 And what he hath seen and heard,
        that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.  [Directly]
John 3:33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

John 3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God:
        for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

John 3:35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life:
        and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;
        but the wrath of God abideth on him.

The Father WITHIN has the Words; He breaths (spritit) as invisible, inaudible power; the Visible Son articulates those Words. 

John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip?
        he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
John 14:10 Believest thou not
        that I am in the Father,
        and the Father in me?
        the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself:
        but the Father that DWELLETH IN me, he doeth the works 

That does not prevent those Jesus called doctors of the law who "take away the key to knowledge" or as Scribes and Pharisees whom Jesus called hypocrites by pointing to His words in Isaiah and Ezekiel as speakers, singers and instrument players. All of these MEANT or were marks that no one intended to obey God or Ezekiel.

John 4:25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ:
        when he is come, he will tell us all things.
John 4:26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

TELL and SPEAK is what you do when you worship IN SPIRIT and in TRUTH.

IN SPIRIT is IN a PLACE in contrast to Houses Built by Human hands at Gerezim or Zion. Paul said that the Jews now worshipped IN THE SPIRIT as opposed to IN THE FLESH. Philippians 3.  That was to EXCLUDE those Paul called DOGS. These were the CYNICS and I will resist telling you all of the dirty truth about them.

IN TRUTH means using "that which is written" or Scripture (Rom 15), The SPIRIT or Word of Christ (Eph 5; John 6:63) or The Word of Christ in Colossians 3.


Aletheia TRUTH opposite a lie or appearance. The ORACLES of God.


[300c] written rules about anything whatsoever
        is to prohibit any violation of them whatsoever,
        either by one person or by a greater number.

Peter left a MEMORY of the eye and ear witness. He outlawed private interpretation which means "further expounding." You speak the ORACLES of God without adding expanding it.  That is an ABSOLUTE throughout the Bible.

In Romans 14 Paul used ARISKOS which marked the CYNICS: this excluded self-pleasure and specificially any opinion made by popular decision defined as doubtful disputations in Romans 14.

Aletheia reality opposite appearance or  
Opposite:  Mimema anything imitated, counterfeit, copy, Lura a stringed instrument with a tortois  sounding-board, sing and play a harp.. Used to imiate sounds. II.lyric poetry and music, Pl.Lg.809c, 809e  Akris of the locust Hom. Il. 21.1

     MIMEMA or speakers, singers or instrument players by DEFINITION make COUNTERFEITS like the Scribes and Pharisees Jesus defined as HYPOCRITES naming speakers, singers and instrument players.

Aletheia is used of the ORACLES of a "god."  Because God gave HIS oracles, Peter made a great divide between the assembly as EKKLESIA or SYNAGOGUE as a school of the Bible and our service for which the SCHOOL prepares us.


Heb. 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers,
       ye have need that one teach you again which be
       the first principles of the oracles of God;
       and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

The purpose for the assembly (ekklesia, synagogue) is defined CLEARLY in most of the letters and the historic church practiced what they knew to be the truth.  Hebrews 5 defines the PURPOSE for the assembly: the Lord's Supper is to show forth which means teach the death of christ as an evangelism word.   

If you have a gift or talent, Peter is absolutely clear about the two arenas of life:

1Pet. 4:10 As every man hath received the gift,
       even so minister the same one to another,
       as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
1Pet. 4:11 If any man speak,
       let him speak as the oracles of God; That defines IN TRUTH
       if any man minister,
             let him do it as of the ability which God giveth:
             that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ,
             to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
But that is exactly what you never do with Homer or Robert Frost: why would you despise the God of the universe?  Private Interpretation specificially outlaws that.  The judgment you acquire by being 'patterned' by reading the recorded accounts is applied in your life but you can never use that the modify the Word.  Once you do that you perform exegetice which is magica which is exactly what creates factions or heresies.  You application will almost never agree with another person's interpretation: so who shall be the judge.


"Some groups, such as the Roman Catholic Church and the Jehovah's Witnesses, claim that their denomination's hierarchy must interpret scripture for the individual believer. Followers of these denominations often point to the disagreements among groups that don't claim to have an infallible interpreter as evidence that individuals need a hierarchy to interpret scripture for them. Recognizing such an authority supposedly would result in more unity.

Catholic apologists often cite the disunity among the churches within evangelicalism, as well as passages such as Acts 8:30-31 and 2 Peter 1:20, as evidence that an infallible interpreter of scripture is needed. Supposedly, Christians should let the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church tell them what scripture actually teaches. Resource


Rubel Shelly and John York in the Jesus Proposal [p. 114] Our proposal to focus on Jesus means that Scripture is NO LONGER a set of proof-texts or a collection of facts or God's rulebook for human behavior. Scripture is the unfolding story of God acting both to create and to re-create. It is not an easy book to understand.

It was NEVER intended as a document to [p. 115] be INDIVIDUALLY read and interpreted--a sort--of correspondence course in salvation.

Prior to the invention of the printing press, access to the content of Scripture was oral. For thousands of years it could only be heard and interpreted in the context of community.

Yes, INDIVIDUALS could comment on Scripture, but those comments were always for the LARGER hearing of the community.

Only after there was INDIVIDUAL access did there become an opportunity for an individual, isolated reading and interpretation that had no need or use for community.

Just as identity in Christ is always COMMUNITY identity, our reading of Scripture becomes a COMMUNITY READING as well.

While we still have access to reading as individuals, we stop asking, "What does this mean to me?"--as though there is such an isolated meaning. Instead we have a GROUP MENTALITY that asks, "What does this mean to US?"

Jesus left us an EXAMPLE that we should follow: that means a WRITTEN history by guiding Apostles into all truth. Peter says that this so that we know what is truth and as a MARK of false teachers.

2Pet. 1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

2Pet. 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you
        through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
2Pet. 1:3 According as his divine power
        hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,
the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
        we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us,
        that he might redeem us from all iniquity,
        and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
2Pet. 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
        that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,
        having escaped the corruption [connects to musical sounds] that is in the world through lust.
2Pet. 1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
2Pet. 1:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
2Pet. 1:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
2Pet. 1:8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2Pet. 1:9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

2 Pet 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, 
        give diligence to make your calling and election sure: 

        for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

2 Pet 1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly    
        into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Theater Euripides Ion [82]

Already this radiant four-horse chariot, the sun, flames over the earth, and at this fire of heaven the stars [85]  flee into the sacred night; the untrod Parnassian cliffs, shining, receive the wheel of day for mortals. The smoke of dry myrtle flies to Phoebus' roof. [90]  The woman of Delphi sits on the sacred tripod, and sings out to the Hellenes whatever Apollo cries to her. But you Delphian servants of Phoebus, [95]  go to the silver whirlpools of Castalia; come to the temple when you have bathed in its pure waters; it is good to keep your mouth holy in speech and give good words from your lips [100]  to those who wish to consult the oracle. But I will labor at the task that has been mine from childhood, with laurel boughs and sacred wreaths making pure the entrance to Phoebus' temple, [105]  and the ground moist with drops of water; and with my bow I will chase the crowds of birds that harm the holy offerings. For as I was born without a mother and a father, [110]  I serve the temple of Phoebus that nurtured me. The attendants leave. Ion busies himself before the temple as he continues to sing.

Come, take the Dorian lyre down from its peg, if the splendor of Pisa and of Pherenicus placed your mind under the influence of sweetest thoughts,

Yes, there are many marvels, and yet I suppose the speech of mortals beyond the true account can be deceptive, stories adorned with embroidered lies; [30] and Grace, who fashions all gentle things for men, confers esteem and often contrives to make believable the unbelievable.

"the condition is that of Ecstasy, the utterances are words or sounds of prayer or praise but are not clear in meaning, and give the impression to the hearer of being MYSTERIES or insane expressions."... This phenomenon seems to include sighs, groanings, shoutings, cries, and utterances either of disconnected words (such as Abba, hosanna, hallelujah, maranatha) or connected speech of a jubilating sort which impresses the observer as ecstatic prayer or psalmodic praise."

Paul says that SONG WRITERS who are MYTHMONGERS were NOT permitted to reveal truth.
Music or Myth means to "silence the MOUTH of the victim."  Peter outlaws it

The Spirit of Christ defined the NARROW WAY through the writing prophets.  They universally repudiate the NOBILITY of Civil-Military-Clergy complex as robbers and parasites.

The prophets also define the TRUE rest in the synagogue as a school of the Word. This was always to quarantine the regular Israelites who had not been involved as Egyptian priests, prophets, prophetesses and the Levites.

Jesus came to make these PROPHECIES more certain. Therefore, the role of synagogue or ekklesia is to give heed (the only worship word) to Christ by using the prophets .

We are told of the "lying pen of the Scribes" and Jesus defined the Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites.  They were the residue of people who were not part of the temple complex then in the hands of the Romans and their hirelings.  Jesus pointed to Isaiah and Ezekiel to identify hypocrites as rhetoricians, singers and instrument players: the word sophistry includes all of the styles of performance music Jesus removed as the laded burden.

The "remembered" examples (written) Jesus assured are to be taught as they are written. This is the only MARK by which you can identify false teachers.  In Ezekiel the warning is that "they turned God's word into a song" and were condemned by Jesus.

Note that Jesus made MORE CERTAIN His own Prophecies about His Spiritual kingdom.
It is UNLAWFUL to cut N paste either the ORIGINAL prophecies as our TEXT BOOK or what Jesus expounded about them.

2 Pet 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

Alexander Campbell Christian Baptist: DAVID the king and prophet foretold that when Messiah the Lord would ascend to his throne, he would bestow gifts upon men. This passage of Psalms, lxviii. 18. Paul (Eph. iv. 8.) applies to our Lord. When he ascended he says, "he gave," and by spiritual gifts qualified "some apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers."

Psalms 68:18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive:
        thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also,
        that the LORD God might dwell among them. 

Ephesians 4:7 But unto every one of us is given grace
        according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
Ephesians 4:8 Wherefore he saith,
        When he ascended up on high,
        he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
Ephesians 4:9 (Now that he ascended,
        what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
Ephesians 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended
        up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some,
         prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

Peter also, on the day of Pentecost, ascribed all the stupendous gifts vouchsafed on that day to the Lord Jesus.
        "Therefore," says he, (Acts ii. 33.) "being exalted by the right hand of God,
        and having received the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father,
hath poured out that which you now see and hear." 

These "distributions of the Holy Spirit," as Macknight renders Heb. ii. 4. issued in the perfect qualification of apostles with "the word of wisdom;" prophets with the "word of knowledge;" evangelists with "tongues and miracles;" pastors with an immediate possession of all the requisites to feeding the flock, and teachers with the means necessary to instructing the novices in all the christian doctrine.

Hebrews 2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed
        to the things which we have heard,
        lest at any time we should let them slip.
Hebrews 2:2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast,
        and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
Hebrews 2:3 How shall we escape,
        if we neglect so great salvation;
        which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord,
        and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
Hebrews 2:4 God also bearing them witness,
        both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles,
        and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?

The Qahal, synagogue or church in the wilderness was defined and continued for the life of the synagogue: no one dared to add music until the year 1815 to compete with the protestants. The reformers for the first time in recorded history made SINGING the commanded Biblical text in a tuneful sense because of the demand of the people who had attended the cathedrals for professional musical performances after they were taken away from the Catholics.  In order to SING the text you have to radically paraphrase it and therefore tamper with it.  I was the Reformation therefore which fell from the commanded practice:

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time

Plato, Republic [590b] and irascibility when they foster and intensify disproportionately the element of the lion and the snake 1 (or chimaera) in us?" "By all means." "And do we not reprobate luxury and effeminacy for their loosening and relaxation of this same element when they engender cowardice in it?" "Surely." "And flattery and illiberality when they reduce this same high-spirited element under the rule of the mob-like beast and habituate it for the sake of wealth and the unbridled lusts of the beast to endure all manner of contumely from youth up and become an ape 2 instead of a lion?

[590c] "Yes, indeed," he said. "And why do you suppose that 'base mechanic' handicraft is a term of reproach? Shall we not say that it is solely when the best part is naturally weak in a man so that it cannot govern and control the brood of beasts within him but can only serve them and can learn nothing but the ways of flattering them?" "So it seems," he said. "Then is it not in order that such an one may have a like government with the best man that we say he ought to be the slave

Far off in the rear he saw the soul of the buffoon Thersites 2 clothing itself in the body of an ape. And it fell out that the soul of Odysseus drew the last lot of all and came to make its choice, and, from memory of its former toils having flung away ambition, went about for a long time in quest of the life of an ordinary citizen who minded his own business,3 and with difficulty found it lying in some corner disregarded by the others,

Livy 3. Thereupon the tribunes wanted to release the people from their oath by raising a quibble. They argued that Quinctius was not consul when the oath was taken. But the neglect of the gods, which prevails in this age, had not yet appeared, nor did every man interpret oaths and laws in just the sense which suited him best; he preferred to shape his own conduct by their requirements. The tribunes, finding any attempt at obstruction hopeless, set themselves to delay the departure of the army. They were the more anxious to do this as a report had got abroad that the augurs had received instructions to repair to Lake Regillus and set apart with the usual augural formalities a spot where business could be transacted by a properly constituted Assembly

[135] You too, Ares--pity us!--guard the city named for Cadmus and make evident your closeness1 to us! [140] And Cypris, [Eve, Zoe, Mary]  you who are the first mother of our race, defend us who are sprung from your blood. We come to you, crying out in prayers for your divine ears.

[145] And you, Apollo, lord of the Wolf, be a wolf to the enemy force and give them groan for groan!

Note 2: Aesch. Supp. 686 And let no murderous havoc come upon [680] the realm to ravage it, by arming Ares--foe to the dance and lute, parent of tears--and the shout of civil strife. [685] And may the joyless swarm of diseases settle far from the heads of the inhabitants, and to all the young people may Lyceus be graciously disposed.
Note 1 The epithet Lyceus, often applied to Apollo, was commonly connected with the belief that he was the destroyer and protector of wolves (lukoi). As a destructive power he is invoked to ward off enemies (Aesch. Seven 145); as an averter of evil he protects herds, flocks, and the young. According to Pausanias (Paus. 2.19.3) Danaus established a sanctuary in honor of Lyceus at Argos, where, in later times, the most famous of all Apollo's temples was consecrated to him under the title of “Wolf-god.”

Paus. 2.19.3 The most famous building in the city of Argos is the sanctuary of Apollo Lycius (Wolf-god). The modern image was made by the Athenian Attalus, but the original temple and wooden image were the offering of Danaus. I am of opinion that in those days all images, especially Egyptian images, were made of wood. The reason why Danaus founded a sanctuary of Apollo Lycius was this. On coming to Argos he claimed the kingdom against Gelanor, the son of Sthenelas. Many plausible arguments were brought forward by both parties, and those of Sthenelas were considered as fair as those of his opponent; so the people, who were sitting in judgment, put off, they say, the decision to the following day

Anan (h6049) aw-nan'; a prim. root; to cover; used only as denom. from 6051, to cloud over; fig. to act covertly, i. e. practise magic: - * bring, enchanter, Meonemin, observe (-r of) times, soothsayer, sorcerer.

There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, De.18:10

Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please them selves in the children of strangers (adulterous women). Isaiah 2:6

Soothsayers: Anan (h6049) aw-nan'; a prim. root; to cover; used only as denom. from 6051, to cloud over; fig. to act covertly, i. e. practise magic: - * bring, enchanter, Meonemin, observer of times, soothsayer, sorcerer.

"In an inscription from Cyprus, in one from Rhodes and in several from around the district of Carthage, there are references to important personages who bear the title Mqm'lm which we can translate as AROUSERS of the god.'" (de Vaux, Roland, The Bible and the Ancient Near East, Doubleday, p. 247).

"We even have a mention at a later date of a similar custom in connection with the cult in Jerusalem, where certain Levites, called me'oreim, 'AROUSERS,' sang (every morning?) this verse from "Ps 44:23: "Awake, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever." The Talmud tells us that John Hyrcanus suppressed the practice because it recalled too readily a pagan custom." (Roland de Vaux, p. 247).

This points to RESPONSIVE SINGING and the worship of ANATH.

Nachash (h5172) naw-khash'; a prim. root; prop. to hiss, i. e. whisper a (magic) spell; gen. to prognosticate: - * certainly, divine, enchanter, (use) * enchantment, learn by experience, * indeed, diligently observe.

It will, I imagine, seem ridiculous that things are made manifest through imitation in letters and syllables; nevertheless it cannot be otherwise. For there is no better theory upon which we can base the truth of the earliest names, unless you think we had better follow the example of the tragic poets, who, when they are in a dilemma, have recourse to the introduction of gods on machines. So we may get out of trouble by saying that the gods gave the earliest names, and therefore they are right.

Soc. I will endeavour to explain, for I do not believe that any single name could have been better adapted to express the attributes of the God, embracing and in a manner signifying all four of them,- music, and prophecy, and medicine, and archery.

[1] The resounding strain of Archilochus, the swelling thrice-repeated song of triumph, sufficed to lead Epharmostus to the hill of Cronus, in victory-procession with his dear companions. [5] But now, from the bow of the Muses who, shooting from afar, send a shower of such arrows of song as these on Zeus of the red lightning-bolt and on the sacred height of Elis, which once the Lydian hero Pelops [10] won as the very fine dowry of Hippodameia. [11] And shoot a winged sweet arrow to Pytho; for your words will not fall to the ground, short of the mark, when you trill the lyre in honor of the wrestling of the man from renowned Opus.

For some roads [105][105] lead farther than others, and a single occupation will not nourish us all. The paths to skill are steep; but, while offering this prize of song, boldly shout aloud [110] that this man, by the blessing of the gods, was born with deftness of hand and litheness of limb, and with valor in his eyes; and at the banquet of Aias son of Oileus he laid his victorious garland on the altar.

Amos 5:[17]WEB In all vineyards there will be wailing; For I will pass through the midst of you," says Yahweh. [18] "Woe to you who desire the day of Yahweh! Why do you long for the day of Yahweh? It is darkness, And not light. [19] As if a man fled from a lion, And a bear met him; Or he went into the house and leaned his hand on the wall, And a snake bit him. [20] Will the day of Yahweh not be darkness, and not light? Even very dark, and no brightness in it? [21] I hate, I despise your feasts, And I can't stand your solemn assemblies. [22] Yes, though you offer me your burnt offerings and meal-offerings, I will not accept them; Neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat animals. [23] Take away from me the noise of your songs! I will not listen to the music of your harps. [24] But let justice roll on like rivers, And righteousness like a mighty stream. [25] "Did you bring to me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, house of Israel? [26] Yes, you have borne the tent of your king and the shrine of your images, the star of your god, which you made for yourselves. [27] Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus," says Yahweh, whose name is the God of hosts.

The thoughts of the human heart do not necessarily lead, as the Greeks thought, to a knowledge of the truth (cf. 1 Cor. 1:21-25), but are evil (Mk. 7:21; Matt. 15:19), full of doubt and suspicion (Mk. 2:6, 8; Lk. 5:22; 6:8), moved by the passing moment (Lk. 3:15), full of greed (Lk. 12:17; 20:14), always concerned with the superficial (Mk. 8:16f.; Matt. 16:7f.) and full of sly calculation (Matt. 11:25; Mk. 11:31).

Spiritual THREAD comes only through the prophets:

1Pet. 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently,
        who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Pet. 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify,
        when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

If you INVENT dithyrambs or use the MUSES then Peter issues you a DIRECT COMMAND.

You don't DARE fail to "teach that which has been taught" or "that which is written" because you BLASPHEME THE SPIRIT:

Again you get the spiritual information from the PROPHETS and not from the kings SCRIBE:

Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 1 Peter 1: 10

Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify
        when it testified beforehand the
sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 1 Peter 1: 11

2Pet. 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man:
        but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

This is the ONLY way to MARK false teachers.  If YOU claim the right to INVENT or fabricate where God has FAILED to inform you then you are a false teacher and Peter told us how to MARK YOU.

To fracture the Words of the Spirit of Christ in song or sermon is to DENY that the PROPHECY of the church and the FULFILLMENT is inspired ENOUGH that you have to obey its direct commands: inclusive and exclusive.

2Pet. 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

1Pet. 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently,
        who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Pet. 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify,
        when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
Rev. 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.


2 Pet. 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people,
        even as there shall be false teachers among you,
        who privily shall bring in damnable heresies,
        even denying the Lord that bought them,
        and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2Pet. 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways;
        by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
2Pet. 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:
        whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Jesus recognized Abraham, Moses and the Prophets: kings and priests do not write inspiration in the sense of creating patternisms.  God spoke through PROPHETS and APOSTLES.  A disciple never seeks to do an end run around that. Poets and song writers could only write MYTHS and never true history. The wrote about what MIGHT have been or SHOULD have been but nerver trustworthy.
2 Peter III. This is now, beloved, the second letter that I have written to you; and in both of them
        I stir up your sincere mind by reminding you;
[2]  that you should 
        remember the words which were spoken before by the holy prophet s,
        and the commandments of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior:
[3]  knowing this first, that in the last days mockers will come, [Magikos, magi]
        walking after their own lusts,

See Enoch who spelled out "elders" led by the Devil to impose musical choirs, instruments and "wearing of apparel"
Jude 14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying,
        Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
Jude 15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them
        of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed,
        and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
Jude 16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts;
        and their mouth speaketh great swelling words,
        having men’s persons in admiration [lying wonders] because of advantage.
Jude 17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Jude 18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time,
        who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.

[135] He is sweet in the mountains , whenever after the running dance he falls on the ground, wearing the sacred garment of fawn skin, hunting the blood of the slain goat, a raw-eaten delight, rushing to the [140] Phrygian, the Lydian mountains, and the leader of the dance is Bromius, evoe!  The plain flows with milk, it flows with wine, it flows with the nectar of bees. [145] The Bacchic one, raising the flaming torch of pine on his thyrsos, like the smoke of Syrian incense, darts about, arousing the wanderers with his racing and dancing, agitating them with his shouts, [150] casting his rich locks into the air. And among the Maenad cries his voice rings deep:  “Go, Bacchae, go, Bacchae, with the luxury of Tmolus that flows with gold, [155] sing of Dionysus, beneath the heavy beat of drums, celebrating in delight the god of delight with Phrygian shouts and cries, [160] when the sweet-sounding sacred pipe sounds a sacred playful tune suited [165] to the wanderers, to the mountain, to the mountain!” And the Bacchante, rejoicing like a foal with its grazing mother, rouses her swift foot in a gamboling dance.
2Pet. 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned,
        but cast them down to hell, and delivered them
        into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
2Pet. 2:5 And spared not the old world,
        but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness,
        bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

John in Revelation says that the Locusts or Muses or Musical Worship team of Apollyon have STINGERS in their TAILS and their job is to DRIVE OUT the Righteous people and TAKE CAPTIVE those doomed to burn. The AFFLICTION or already being punished SEEMS spiritual but everyone knows that the MUSES inflect soul damage and make it SEEM spiritual: that is the MARK of spiritual DELUSION.

[791] You seize the minds of just men and drag them to injustice, to their ruin. You it is who have incited this conflict of men whose flesh and blood are one.
