2 Peter 2 Instrumental Music Marks Corruption

PREWARNING: A Church of Christ is an Ekklesia or Synagogue: We are Disciples and Jesus commanded us to teach WHAT He commanded to be Taught.

The Church has no ROLES which demand a WAGE: Paul authorized feeding the Evangelists while they are on the GO.
When a congregation decides to hire a Bible Teacher he assumes no "leadership roles."
Those who have assume a role of authority will in the end make you into the threshing oxen.

Preaching for pay? "Give money to make poor pious youths learned clergy, or vain pretenders to erudition; and they pray that they may preach to you; yes, and pay them too.

Was there ever such a craft as priestcraft? No, it is the craftiest of all crafts. It is so crafty that it obtains by its craft the means to make craftsmen, and then it makes the deluded support them!" (Campbell, Alexander, Christian Baptist, Dec. 1, 1823, Vol. 1, p. 91).

"Those who lord it over the people will soon begin to destroy Them. The word Balaam means 'the destroyer of the people.' If we turn back to the history of this strange figure as recorded in the book of Numbers we find that which clarifies three passages in the New Testament where 'the error of Balaam' (Jude 11), 'the way of Balaam' (II Pet. 2:15) and 'the doctrine of Balaam' are discussed." (Barnhouse, D.G., Revelation, Zondervan, p. 54

It has been said: "From late Jewish sources we learn that rabbis were expected to support themselves by some form of labor. Rabbi Zadok said, "Make not of the Torah . . . a spade wherewith to dig . . . whosoever derives a profit for himself from the words of the Torah is helping his own destruction" (Pirqe 'Abot 4.7). Rabbi Gamaliel III declared, "An excellent thing is the study of the Torah combined with some secular occupation, for the labor by them both puts sin out of one's mind. All study of the Torah which is not combined with work will ultimately be futile and lead to sin" (Talmud Pirqe 'Abot 2.12 p 213). BUY THE BOOK

Based on these texts it is commonly assumed that Paul learned his tentmaking as a pupil rabbi (see Jew, Paul the). Although Hock has questioned this assumption, there is good reason to accept it. Otherwise, how can we explain a member of the provincial elite having such a menial trade?"

In 2 Peter 1 Peter identified that as the PROPHETS by Christ and the prophecies made more perfect by Jesus of Nazareth whom God made to be both Lord and Christ. We have no other teacher. Jesus Paid it all. Christ commanded us NOT to pay any pretender.

He MARKED those who "private interpreted" which means "further expound." That is because the Pattern of both Ekklesia and Synagogue was to READ and discuss material supplied by a higher authority. A singer or instrument player who tried to "perform" in either would be identified as drunk or perverted.

Christ warned about the smiters and pluckers Isaiah 50
Christ in defining the coming REST commanded us not to pay for the free water of the Word. Isaiah 55
Christ commanded us NOT stoo seek our own pleasure or speak our own words: Isaiah 58

Hdt. 1.155 [3] When Cyrus heard of this on his journey, he said to Croesus, “What end to this business, Croesus? It seems that the Lydians will never stop making trouble for me and for themselves. It occurs to me that it may be best to make slaves of them; for it seems I have acted like one who slays the father and spares the children. [2] So likewise I have taken with me you who were more than a father to the Lydians, and handed the city over to the Lydians themselves; and then indeed I marvel that they revolt!” So Cyrus uttered his thought; but Croesus feared that he would destroy Sardis, and answered him thus: [3

“O King, what you say is reasonable. But do not ever yield to anger, or destroy an ancient city that is innocent both of the former and of the present offense. For the former I am responsible, and bear the punishment on my head; while Pactyes, in whose charge you left Sardis, does this present wrong; let him, then, pay the penalty.
        [4] Grant, then, forgiveness to the Lydians,
        and to
make sure of their never rebelling against thee, or alarming thee more,
        send and
forbid them to keep any weapons of war,
                  command them
to wear tunics under their cloaks, and to put buskins upon their legs,
......        ....and make them bring up their sons to cithern-playing (Kitharizein), singing (psallein),
...        .......and shop-keeping (Hucksterism). 
So wilt thou soon see them become women instead of men,
and there will be no more fear of their revolting from thee

John speaks of the LOCUSTS which in the literature are the MUSES (Rev 18:22) known as dirty as dirty adultersses.  It would be a rare MARK when males fell into this.  The Locust CAST OUT Christ's elect and holds those with the mark of the beast (a new style of music and drama) captive so they CANNOT revolt against the unleased Apollo (Abaddon, Apollyon).

MARK:
Rev. 19:2 For true and righteous are his judgments:
        for he hath judged the great whore,
        which did corrupt the earth with her fornication,
        and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

WHY ARE THERE NO INSTRUMENTS IN REVELATION 19
Rev. 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
Rev. 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

The FRUITS are the same as the SUMMER BASKETS in Amos
Rev. 18:14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee,
        and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee,
        and thou shalt find them no more at all.

Rev. 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
Rev. 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
Rev. 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
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.
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;

2 Peter 2:8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing,
vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

2 Peter 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations,
and to
reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

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.

How can WE know when YOU have LANDED?

2 Peter 2:10 But chiefly them that
walk after the FLESH in the lust of uncleanness,
and despise government. Presumptuous are they,

Much of the Bible identifies the prevaing Greek, Roman and Jewish Worship to REPUDIATE the use of music which is always the WEAPON of those "intending to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."  Most children of that time would not fall sucker bait to anyone imposing MUSIC knowing that Jesus spoke of the Jewish Clergy as hypocrites (preachers, singers, instrument players) the MARK of someone entertaining in order to fleece the sheep.

Because the Greek plays were performed or recited to both entertain and educate the masses many people would be able to understand the writers of the Bible.  Without looking where the Bible points, pretending to be a preacher or teacher is no more than an occupation and the presentation method does not treat the Bible with honesty or God with Godly fear and reverence.

Hom. Od. 1.125 And a carver lifted up and placed before them platters of all manner of meats, and set by them golden goblets, while a herald ever walked to and fro pouring them wine. Then in came the proud wooers, and thereafter [145] sat them down in rows on chairs and high seats. Heralds poured water over their hands, and maid-servants heaped by them bread in baskets, and youths filled the bowls brim full of drink; and they put forth their hands to the good cheer lying ready before them.
[150] Now after the wooers had put from them the desire of food and drink,
        their hearts turned to other things, to song and to dance;
        for these things are the crown of a feast.
And a herald put the beautiful lyre in the hands of Phemius, who sang perforce among the wooers;
[155] and he struck the chords in prelude to his sweet lay.


HOMER SPEAK FOR ALL DECENT AND LITERATE SOCIETY:
(Butler 1.2) Then the suitors came in and took their places on the benches and seats.
        Forthwith men servants poured water over their hands,
        maids went round with the bread-baskets,
        pages filled the mixing-bowls with wine and water,
        and they laid their hands upon the good things that were before them.
        As soon as they had had enough to eat and drink they wanted music and dancing,
        which are the crowning embellishments of a banquet,
        so a servant brought a lyre to Phemios,
        whom they compelled perforce to sing to them.

Then, said Eryximachus, as you are all agreed that drinking is to be voluntary, and that there is to be no compulsion,
I move, in the next place, that the flute-girl, who has just made her appearance,
        be told to go away and play to herself, or, if she likes, to the women who are within.
        To-day let us have conversation instead; and, if you will allow me, I will tell you what sort of conversation.

This man of leather knows his old master thoroughly; he plays the fawning cur, flatters, cajoles, wheedles, and dupes him at will with little scraps of leavings, which he allows him to get. [50] “Dear Demos,” he will say, “try a single case and you will have done enough; then take your bath, eat, swallow and devour; here are three obols.” Then the Paphlagonian filches from one of us what we have prepared and makes a present of it to our old man. The other day I [55] had just kneaded a Spartan cake at Pylos, the cunning rogue came behind my back, sneaked it and offered the cake, which was my invention, in his own name. He keeps us at a distance and suffers none but himself to wait upon the master; [60] when Demos is dining, he keeps close to his side with a thong in his hand and puts the orators to flight. He keeps singing oracles to him, so that the old man now thinks of nothing but the Sibyl. Then, when he sees him thoroughly obfuscated, he uses all his cunning and piles up lies and calumnies against the household;

leukos A.light, bright, clear (opp. melas in all senses)
2. metaph., clear, distinct, of the voice,
c. of persons, white-skinned, Pl.R.474e: hence, weakly, womanish, leukosHermês, when a rogue was detected

Aistotle Politics 1.The first coupling together of persons then to which necessity gives rise is that between those who are unable to exist without one another: for instance the union of female and male for the continuance of the species (and this not of deliberate purpose, but with man as with the other animals and with plants there is a natural instinct to desire to leave behind one another being of the same sort as oneself);
Jas 5:5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.

Nehemiah 9
Their children also multipliedst thou as the stars of heaven, and broughtest them into the land, concerning which thou hadst promised to their fathers, that they should go in to possess it. Neh 9:23

So the children went in and possessed the land, and thou subduedst before them the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, and gavest them into their hands, with their kings, and the people of the land, that they might do with them as they would. Neh 9:24

And they took strong cities, and a fat land, and possessed houses full of all goods, wells digged, vineyards, and oliveyards, and fruit trees in abundance: so they did eat, and were filled, and became fat, and delighted themselves in thy great goodness. Neh 9:25

Behold, we are servants this day, and for the land that thou gavest unto our fathers to eat the fruit thereof and the good thereof, behold, we are servants in it: Neh 9:36

And it yieldeth much increase unto the kings whom thou hast set over us because of our sins: also they have dominion over our bodies, and over our cattle, at their pleasure, and we are in great distress. Neh 9:37

Diodorus Siculus, Library 9.[4] The same Solon, although the city2 followed the whole Ionian manner of life and luxury and a carefree existence had made the inhabitants effeminate, worked a change in them by accustoming them to practise virtue and to emulate the deeds of virile folk. And it was because of this that Harmodius and Aristogeiton,3 their spirits equipped with the panoply of his legislation, made the attempt to destroy the rule of the Peisistratidae.4 Const.

          who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
Balaam: H1109 bil‛âm bil-awm' Probably from H1077 and H5971 ; not (of the) people, that is, foreigner; Bilam, a Mesopotamian prophet; also a place in Palestine:--Balaam, Bileam.

2 Peter 2:17 These are wells without water,
          clouds that are carried with a tempest;
          to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

2 Peter 2:18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity,
          they allure through the lusts of the flesh,
          through much wantonness,
          those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

G5246 huperogkos hoop-er'-ong-kos From G5228 and G3591; bulging over, that is, (figuratively) insolent:—great swelling.

2 Peter 2:19 While they promise them liberty,
          they themselves are the servants of corruption:
           for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

2 Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world
          through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
          they are again entangled therein, and overcome,
          the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

2 Peter 2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness,
          than, after they have known it,
          to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

2 Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb,
          The dog is turned to his own vomit again;
          and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
