2 Timothy 3

The Last Days 2 Tim 3: 1 THIS know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. Warning against Witchcraft or Music.

As usual, Paul defines the ENEMY of God and mankind before he commands the REMEDY. This is a pattern: you have to silence the hypocrites performers in song and music which are defined as wizardry because it uses unfair means to pick people's pockets:
2 Kings 23:24 Moreover the workers with familiar spirits, and the wizards, and the images, and the idols,
and all the abominations that were spied in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, did Josiah put away,
        that he might perform the words of the law which were written in the book
        that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the LORD.

H178 'b obe From the same as H1 (apparently through the idea of prattling a father's name); properly a mumble, that is, a water skin (from its hollow sound); hence a necromancer (ventriloquist, as from a jar):--bottle, familiar spirit.

But as we were allowed of God
to be put in trust with the

not as
PLEASING men, but God, which trieth our hearts. 1 Thess 2:4

Lost on the masses is the fact that Scripture connects music to Lucifer--the singing and harp playing prostitute--from Genesis to Revelation 17. There, John defines the Mother of Harlots and in Revelation 18 he calls the singers, musicians and other religious operatives SORCERERS who HAD ceceived the whole world.

Based on the remnant theory almost all will be collected into false religions as John's story of the "locusts" in Revelation. The locusts identify the muses--dirty prostitutes--as Apollo's (Abaddon, Apollyon) musical worship team at Delphi which was an early "seeker center" fleecing the ignorant.
G5467 chalepos khal-ep-os' Perhaps from G5465 through the idea of reducing the strength; difficult, that is, dangerous, or (by implication) furious:--fierce, perilous.

"There are hints that Pan was also linked closely to the Mother Goddess (Zoe, Eve, Sophia), and perhaps was even one of her male consorts at one time, and linked with her as overlord of nature and Lord of the Beasts. Pindar mentions Pan as:

"O blessed one, whom the Olympians call dog (catamite) of the Great Mother, taking every form"

"There are references to Pan as 'the dog of Cybele' the great nature-goddess of the Greeks, as being always in attendance on her, being himself a nature-god. The fact that Pindar calls Pan 'dog' is taken as a glorification of that animal.

"The story remains in old legends [700] that Pan, the keeper of wild beasts, breathing sweet-voiced music on his well-joined pipes, once brought from its tender mother on Argive hills a lamb with beautiful golden fleece. A herald stood on the stone platform and cried aloud,

"To assembly, Mycenaeans, go to assembly to see the omens given to our blessed rulers." . . . and they honored the house of Atreus. "

[185] Men will dishonor their parents as they grow quickly old, and will carp at them, chiding them with bitter words, hard-hearted they, not knowing the fear of the gods. They will not repay their aged parents the cost of their nurture, for might shall be their right: and one man will sack another's city. [190] There will be no favor for the man who keeps his oath or for the just or for the good; but rather men will praise the evil-doer and his violent dealing. Strength will be right, and reverence will cease to be; and the wicked will hurt the worthy man, speaking false words against him, and will swear an oath upon them.

Plato, Symposium [182a] just as we force them, so far as we can, to refrain from loving our freeborn women. These are the persons responsible for the scandal which prompts some to say it is a shame to gratify one's lover: such are the cases they have in view, for they observe all their reckless and wrongful doings; and surely, whatsoever is done in an orderly and lawful manner can never justly bring reproach.
Pindar. Olympian 7. [1] As when someone takes a goblet, all golden, the most prized of his possessions, foaming with the dew of the vine from a generous hand, and makes a gift of it to his young son-in-law, welcoming him with a toast from one home to another, [5] honoring the grace of the symposium and the new 1 marriage-bond, and thereby, in the presence of his friends, makes him enviable for his harmonious marriage-bed; [7] I too, sending to victorious men poured nectar, the gift of the Muses, the sweet fruit of my mind, I try to win the gods' favor [10] for those men who were victors at Olympia and at Pytho. That man is prosperous, who is encompassed by good reports. Grace, which causes life to flourish, looks with favor now on one man, now on another, with both the sweet-singing lyre and the full-voiced notes of flutes. [13] And now, with the music of flute and lyre alike I have come to land with Diagoras, singing the sea-child of Aphrodite and bride of Helios, Rhodes,

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][30] and Grace, who fashions all gentle things for men, confers esteem and often contrives to make believable the unbelievable. But the days to come are the wisest witnesses.

Euripides, Medea: And then getting up from her seat she paraded about the room, her white feet making dainty steps, [1165]  entranced with the gifts, glancing back again and again at the straight tendon of her leg. But thereafter there was a terrible sight to behold. For her color changed, and with legs trembling she staggered back sidelong, and by falling on the chair [1170]  barely escaped collapsing on the floor. And one old woman among the servants, thinking, I suppose, that a frenzyPan or one of the other gods had come upon her, raised a festal shout to the god, until she saw the white foam coming between her lips and her eyes [1175]  starting out of their sockets and her skin all pale and bloodless. Then indeed she raised a wail in answer to her former shout. And at once one servant went to her father's house, another to her new husband to tell of the bride's misfortune: the whole [1180]  house rang with the sound of drumming footsteps. from

G5366 philarguros fil-ar'-goo-ros From G5384 and G696 ; fond of silver (money), that is, avaricious:--covetous.

G213 alazōn al-ad-zone' From alē (vagrancy); braggart:--boaster.
G214 alalazō al-al-ad'-zo From alalē (a shout, halloo); to vociferate, that is, (by implication) to wail; figuratively to clang:--tinkle, wail.

Aristophanes' Lysistrata:

Call upon Bacchus, afire with his Maenades [mad women];
Call upon Zeus in the
lightning arrayed;
Call on his
queen, ever blessed, adorable;
Call on the holy, infallible Witnesses,
Call them to witness the peace and the harmony,

Allala! Lalla! Lallala! Lallala!
Whoop for victory, Lallalalae!
Evoi!  Evoi!  Lallala, Lallala!
Evae!  Evae!  Lallalalae.

The word lelein is fundamentally an onomatopoetic one, meaning, as Thayer's Lexicon puts it, to go 'la-la'. The Greeks shouted 'alala' both in worship and in war, and personified Alala as a deity (Pindar, Fr. 208 [78]; Plutarch 2.3496). It was this same repetitive and meaningless syllabification in pagan prayers which Jesus described: 'for they think they shall be heard for their much speaking' (Matthew 6:7)

T. Maccius Plautus, Miles Gloriosus, or The Braggart Captain

Now I will disclose to you both the subject and the name of the play which we are just now about to act, and for the sake of which you are now seated in this mirthful place , "Alazon" is the name (86)

This city is Ephesus; then, the Captain, my master, who has gone off hence to the Forum, a bragging, impudent, stinking fellow, brimful of lying and lasciviousness, says that all the women are following him of their own accord. Wherever he goes, he is the laughing.stock of all; and so, the Courtesans here--since they make wry mouths at him, you may see the greater part of them with lips all awry Alazon is the name:
, "the boaster," he says, was the Greek name of the play.
        It is not known who was the Greek author from whom Plautus took this play, which is one of his best.

3  in Greek, of this Comedy; the same we call in Latin. "the Braggart" (Gloriosus).

Iamblichus wrote of Sabazianism which was what God abandoned Israel to because of musical idolatry.

We affirm, accordingly, not only that the shoutings and choric songs are sacred to the gods, each and all of them, as being peculiarly their own, but likewise that there is a kindred relationship between them in their proper order . . . and the peculiar usages of Sabazian worship make ready for the Bacchic enthusiasm, the purifying of souls, and deliverances from old incriminations, their respective inspirations are, accordingly, different in every important particular.

Thou seemest to think that those who are enrapt by the Mother of the gods are males, for thou callest them, accordingly, 'Metrizontes' yet that is not true, for the 'Metrizontesae' are chiefly women (op cit., pp. 121-123

Such women must learn that they were purified not through shouting but through the blood of Christ and through the washing of the water of the Word.

So, also, certain others of these
ecstatics become entheast or inspired when they hear cymbals, drums, or some choral chant;

as for example, those who are engaged in the Korybantic Rites, those who are possessed at the Sabazian festivals, and those who are celebrating the Rites of the Divine Mother.

Others, also, are inspired when drinking water, like the priest of the Klarian Apollo at Kolophon; others when sitting over cavities in the earth, like the women who deliver oracles at Delphi; others when affected by vapor from the water, like the prophetesses at Branchid; and others when standing in indented marks like those who have been filled from an imperceptible inflowing of the divine plerome.

2. That likewise, an evidence that a condition of the Soul is a principal source of the art of divining is shown by the facts that the senses are held in check, fumes and invocations being employed for the purpose;

and that by no means everybody, but only the more artless
young persons, are suitable for the purpose.

3. That likewise, ecstasy or alienation of mind is a chief origin of the divining art; also the mania which occurs in diseases, mental aberration, abstinence from wine, suffusions of the body. fancies set in motion by morbid conditions or equivocal states of mind, such as may occur during abstinence and ecstasy, or apparitions got up by technical magic. 12

When we came to the sea-shore, where Orestes' [GENDER CONFUSED] ship was moored in hiding, [1330]  Agamemnon's daughter motioned to those of us you sent with the strangers' bonds to stand far off, as if her sacrifice of purifying flame, that she had come for, were secret. But she went on alone, holding the strangers' chains in her hands, behind them.

Your servants, lord, were suspicious, [1335]  but we allowed it. After a while, so that we might think that she was accomplishing something, she raised a shout, and chanted strange songs and spells, as if she were washing off the pollution of murder.

When we had sat a long time, [1340]  it occurred to us that the strangers, loosed from their bonds, might kill her and escape by flight. But we were afraid of seeing what we ought not, and sat in silence. But at length we all resolved to go where they were, although we were not allowed.

(Satan teaching Tubal-Cain etal.) taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication of mirrors, and the workmanship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and all sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered.

In the Sons of The Gods which is commentary on the Bible Jubal who handles instruments "without authority." And Josephus notes that Naamah was an enchantress or witch.

(r) Genun (Jubal etal.) the Canaanite, son of Lamech the Blind, living in the Land of the Slime Pits, was ruled by Azael from his earliest youth, [The old Nadab and Abihu Scapegoat]
and invented all sorts of musical instruments.

When he played these, Azael ENTERED into them too,
so that they gave forth seductive tunes entrancing the hearts of all listeners.

Genun would assemble companies of musicians,
who inflamed one another with music until their lust burned bright like fire,
and they lay together promiscuously.

He also brewed beer, gathered great crowds in taverns, gave them to drink, [New Wineskins]
and taught them to forge iron swords and spear-points, with which to do murder at random when they were drunk

Their danger is that they BELIEVE their own lies and cannot even quote anything without twisting it to FIT their brains which The Book of Enoch and many other documents PROVE that making the MUSIC MEANS WORSHIP CONNECTIONS is hard wired and there is no redemption-ever.

Apollo is the Abaddon or Apollyon of John's Revelation: he calls the muses SORCERERS.

Forthwith Phoebus Apollo spoke out among the deathless goddesses:

(ll. 131-132) `The lyre and the curved bow shall ever be dear to me, and I will declare to men the unfailing will of Zeus.'

(ll. 182-206) Leto's all-glorious son goes to rocky Pytho, playing upon his hollow lyre, clad in divine, perfumed garments; and at the touch of the golden key his lyre sings sweet.

Thence, swift as thought, he speeds from earth to Olympus, to the house of Zeus, to join the gathering of the other gods: then straightway the undying gods think only of the lyre and song, and all the Muses together, voice sweetly answering voice,

hymn the unending gifts the gods enjoy and the sufferings of men,
all that they endure at the hands of the deathless gods,
and how they live
witless and helpless and
cannot find healing for death or defence against old age.

But since I would have you know, for I do not know how it will end: I think I am a charioteer driving my team far beyond the course.
        For my ungoverned wits are whirling me away overmastered,
        and at my heart fear wishes to sing and dance to a tune of wrath.
[1025] But while I am still in my senses, I proclaim to those who hold me dear and declare that not without justice did I slay my mother, the unclean murderess of my father, and a thing loathed by the gods.

And for the spells that gave me the courage for this deed I count Loxias [Apollo], the prophet of Pytho [Delphi], [1030] my chief source. It was he who declared that, if I did this thing, I would be acquitted of wrongdoing. But if I refrained--I will not name the penalty; for no bowshot could reach such a height of anguish.

And now observe me, how armed with this branch and wreath I go as a suppliant, an outcast for the shedding of kindred blood, to the temple set square on the womb of the earth

See First Corinthians Chapter One as Paul begins all of his messages.
Jesus commanded the EKKLESIA or SCHOOL OF THE BIBLE which is for BIBLE STUDY ONLY as the ONLY way to keep the wolves from taking control. Wolves defining a style of singing or musical praise which most of you LOVE.

For those addicted to pagan singing, Paul commanded "that which is written" and psalms, hymns and spiritual songs are all written in the Bible. That is because the DRIVEN PURPOSE of the church was to be a school of the Bible. Almost none of the New Testament would be required to do ALL that is commanded to be a School of the Bible.

For those afflicted with Prophetitis, Peter told them to pay attention to the PROPHETS and the day star would arise in their hearts. They would not need to know anything about the Epistles other than to CORRECT the failures to "do church."  Now, that we have the New Testament we have a record of what NOT to do to PREVENT being a school of the Bible.  None of that happens in a "liberated" theater for holy entertainment.  Paul told Timothy:

2 Tim 3: 14 But continue thou in the things
        which thou hast learned
        and hast been assured of,
        knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

2 Tim 3: 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,
        which are able to make thee wise unto salvation
        through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Only a foundation in the Old Testament makes one competent to be a disciple and take advantage of Salvation: Much of Paul's writings are commentary on the Old Testament specificially to condemn the PLAY or musical idolatry at Mount Sinai.

G4991 sōtēria so-tay-ree'-ah Feminine of a derivative of G4990 as (properly abstract) noun; rescue or safety (physically or morally):--deliver, health, salvation, save, saving.
Jesus, John, Peter and Paul spoke of being saved FROM that crooked and perverse RACE of vipers. The CROOKED RACE was the new wineskinners MARKED by their style of Skolion singers.  If you are safe FROM this Viper Race then you can obey Jesus to REST FROM what you call church and "come learn of me."

Consistent with ALL of the NOT musical passages demanding that we use "that which is writen" the SAME Paul tells the SAME story in all of his letters: that is why the changeling-hirelings REJECT the Epistles and preach JUST JESUS but ANOTHER Jesus which they found in the mirrow.

2 Tim 3: 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
        and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2 Tim 3: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Paul never fails to warn people of the SORCERERS whom John identified as singers and musicians (Rev 18) as agents of the Mother of Harlots (Rev 17).

That is why Paul's command for "church" was to

1Tim. 4:11 These things command and teach.
1Tim. 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth;  
        but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation
        in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

1Tim. 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to [public] reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.

Timothy was further taught by Paul and the elders APT to teach and send out evangelists.

1Tim. 4:14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.

1Tim. 4:15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
1Tim. 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine;
        continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

Next, he defines the assembly or ekklesia or synagogue in terms ONLY of teaching that which is written.
