Carroll D. Osburn Change Agenda 5
Dismissing Scripture, the Word or LOGOS as Regulative Principle; and repudiating Jesus and Paul is the FORE ORDAINED (Jude) role. They are Lost Spirits consigned to HELL until about Now. Apollo or Apollyon is the LEADER of the LOCUSTS or His Musical Worship Team. History knew them as dirty adulteresses serving as SHEPHERDS. MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS are the tools of inducing KOMA.
ACU Abilene Christian University and Highland Church has been the FOUNDERS and trainers of end-time TRIBULATORS. Beginning with Jo Bass as Female leader and John T. Willis the founders and supporter of ALL once-Christian Churches have let the WOLVES into the flock even when
"Evangelicals are beginning to build their theologies around what it means for man to be in the presence of God [rather than around the objective truth of the Word of God]. "Influenced by the wider Christian world, evangelicals who have adopted either a relational (incarnational in his words) approach or a charismatic ("neo-pentecostal") approach to their theology are more and more challenging their fellow believers to rethink the Gospel from the standpoint of their own experience with it. Their claim is that traditional evangelical theology is largely irrelevant or inadequate." (MacArthur, John, Charismatic Chaos, p. 45, Zondervan).
Or as Rubel Shelly and Randy Harris state in their Second Incarnation: "Decadent and deleterious" which to those without their doctorate means ROTTEN AND DESTRUCTIVE.
PAUL WARNED THAT LACK OF LOVE FOR TRUTH ASKS GOD TO SEND STRONG DELUSIONS. ASSUREDLY THE BOOKS AND LECTURE SPAWNED BY MEN CLAIMING TO BE SUPERIOR TO GOD FOR THEIR CULTURE SOUND INSAND.
From Rubel Shelly who has received new SPECTACLES (peep-stones) to get a new vision
"A new type of piety developed alongside the rationalism of the Enlightenment, which is often called 'the religion of the heart.' Although it was centered in the heart rather than the head, it shared many of the same preoccupations as Deism. It urged men and women to abandon external proofs and authorities and discover the God who was within the heart and capacity of everybody. (Karen Armstrong. p. 315)
"History notes that when religion swings from repression to permissiveness,
those with mental disorders lose their emotional footing and
react by flaunting the violation of previous religious views.
"Albert C. Ouler points out that the new religion of the heart and the rationalism of the Enlightenment were both antiestablishment and both mistrusted external authority; both ranged themselves with moderns against the ancients... Many of these sects seemed to respond to the immense changes of the period by violating religious taboos.
Some appeared blasphemous; some were dubbed atheistic,
while others had leaders who actually claimed to be incarnations of God. [Or perhaps the 13th Apostle?]
"The accounts that we have of their lives suggest MENTAL DISORDER
"The Ranters "deliberately broke Christian taboos in their libertarian creed and
blasphemously claimed that there was no distinction between God and man.

On pages 14-15: "With so many questions flying around and so much UNCERTAINTY

yet it SERVES as Scripture today
because people find themselves accountable to it.
THAT is what make its SCRIPTURE" (p. 46).
A CHRISTIAN IS A DISCIPLE IS A STUDENT OF SCRIPTURE AS WRITTEN. Theologians who claim to see what God did not deliver, by definition, are active ANTI-CHRISTIANS.
THEOLOGIANS ARE MORE TO BE TRUSTED THAN JESUS OR PAUL WHO WERE "PATRIARCHAL" DEFENDERS. PLUNGING DEEPER INTO HISTORIC SCHOLARSHIP---
Carroll D. Osburn claims that the inspired New Testament writer, Jude, was guilty of plagiarizing ("to put forth as original to oneself the ideas of words of another") from profane and impure sources (namely, the Pseudepigrapha book of 1 Enoch) (Peaceable Kingdom, pp. 93-122). Carrol. D. Osburn He is Carmichael Distinguished Professor of the New Testament at Abilene Christian University, abandoning verbal inspiration of Holy Scriptures and saying the Bible contains mistakes in science, history, and geography (Peaceable Kingdom, pp. 53-70).
The Bible does not generally quote from such profane sources, and certainly never treats such books as authoritative. However in this case the phrase "the seventh from Adam" does not come from Genesis but from Book of Enoch 60:8. So we are not dealing with one quote of Enoch here, but two. In fact there are as many as 30 references to the Book of Enoch in 2 Peter and Jude. Slandering Celestial Beings, Steven cox
SCRIPTURE MOST OFTEN IS THE ANTITHESIS OF PAGANISM AND THEREFORE NON BIBLICAL RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS. IF YOU ARE IGNORANT OF THE MYTHS YOU CANNOT GRASP THAT WORD OR LOGOS IS GOD'S REGULATIVE PRINCIPLE AND IS THE OPPOSITE OF MYTHOS WHICH IS SELF-AUTHORED BOOKS, SONGS OR SERMONS.http://www.piney.com/2.Peter.2.Instrumental.Music.Marks.Corruption.html
THEOLOGIANS CLAIM TO BE WISER THAN GOD OR JUDE WHICH HAS BEEN VALIDATED FOR 2 CENTURIES. JUDE MARKS THE ANTI-SCRIPTURAL AND THE INSTRUMENTAL-TRINITARIAN-PERVERTED IDOLATERS (Exodus 32) as FORE ORDAINED for that purpose.
Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you
of the COMMON salvation,
it was needful for me to WRITE unto you,
and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend
for THE FAITH which was ONCE delivered unto the saints.
Jude 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares,
who were before of old ORDAINED to this condemnation,
UNGODLY men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,
and denying the ONLY Lord God, [Only one The-os]

NONE OF THOSE STANDING IN THE PLACE OF GOD CAN SEE WHERE INSPIRED WRITERS POINT.

[289d] On what proof do you rely? I asked.
I see, he said, certain speech-writers who do not know how to use the special arguments composed by themselves, just as lyre-makers in regard to their lyres: in the former case also there are other persons able to use what the makers produced, while being themselves unable to make the written speech. Hence it is clear that in speech likewise there are two distinct arts, one of making and one of using.
I think you give sufficient proof, I said, that this art of the speech-writers cannot be that whose acquisition would make one happy. And yet I fancied that somewhere about this point would appear the knowledge which we have been seeking all this while.

THE KINGDOM OF GOD DOES NOT COME WITH OBSERVATION: RELIGIOUS OBSERVATIONS
1.02.13 It is a clear Bible fact that musical instruments, USING women and their being cast alive into the lake of fire is a certain PATTERN. The mighty effort enabled by papers and people from the NACC began in the 1980s with the Jubilee Movement: the Pope had call for preparation of Jubliee 200 where the DAUGHTER churches would come back under the Mother of such daughters.
Rubel Shelly thinks that the anger at homosexuals was a Pauline problem
The question for all of us is NOT what the Bible says, but how and why... Why don't we at least entertain the possibility that the Bible simply reflects an ANCIENT TABOO or homophobic prejudice in a few people like Paul -- a taboo and prejudice we need to outgrow?

Carrol D. Osburn: "For men whose gender identity and social domination were at stake due to these major upheavals
that threatened patriarchalism,
religion was seen as a useful tool...men now held that women were not to exercise authority...Texts such as I Cor. 14:34-35 and I Tim. 2:11-15 were stressed to forbid women teaching and preaching in the presence of men" (WOMEN IN THE CHURCH: Reclaiming the Ideal, p. 8-9).
TEACHING OVER by either male or female was outlawed.A church is built upon or educated by the Prophets and Apostles.

Proving the problem of "uncovered" female prophesiers (singing, music) in 1 cor 11:5
Women were most often the AGENTS of the gods in pagan temples. Men often encouraged WRATH or an orgy with women and effeminate men performing lING WONDERS. Both are SILENCED other than the historic READER in the Synagogue.
1Tim. 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
1Tim. 2:2 For kings, and for all that are in authority;
that we may lead a quiet and PEACEABLE life in all godliness and honesty.

Neither male nor female are permitted to TEACH OVER which implies teaching YOUR OWN words. Then and now:
Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time
hath in every city [quarantined from Jerusalen]
them that PREACH him,
being READ in the synagogues every sabbath day.
Sabbath or Rest is PAUO in Greek. The Jews held Holy Convocations on the FIRST DAYS of Festivals and the last. PAUO is used in the literature meaniing to STOP the rhetoric, STOP the singing, STOP the instruments, STOP everything beyond the PATTERN for the Church in theWilderness
Luke 4:16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up:
and, as his custom [SINGULAR PATTERN] was,
he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, [once each week only]
and stood up for to read.
The Prophets define the PATTERN both exclusively and inclusively. The RULERS who claim superiority to God and want women to join them in the MARK of Jesus removing His Lampstand.
John 12:42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him;
but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him,
lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
Acts 13:15 And after the reading of the law and the prophets
the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, Ye men and brethren,
if ye have any word of exhortation [comfort] for the people, say on.
In ALL of the churches you know about who use rhetoric, singing or playing instruments, this is ANTI Word, ANTI Logos and ANTI God whose word is theREGULATIVE PRINCIPLE rebuking any ACTS of performane claiming God's authority.
Acts 13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers,
because they knew him not,
nor yet the voices of the prophets
which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.
BOTH MALE OR FEMALE ARE FORBIDDEN TO TEACH THEIR OWN WORDS.
1Tim. 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
1Tim. 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, [kept safe]
and to come unto the KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH
Theologians deny that either Jesus or Paul spoke the TRUTH without the need for MEN fo INTERPRET which is outlawed by Peter and would blaspheme the SPIRIT meaning that God put His WORDS into the MOUTH of Jesus for the last time and validated by SIGNS AND WONDERS.
Why both male and female are forbidden to teach in the sense of ADDING to the "perfect law of liberty]
1Tim. 2:5 For there is ONE GOD
and one mediator between God and men,
the man Christ Jesus;
1Tim. 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all,
to be TESTIFIED in due time.
Jesus died so that His TESTIMONY or Spirit-made Audible be the only SPEAKING as the ORACLE of God.
Jesus said My WORDS are SPIRIT and LIFE.
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.
Eph. 2:20 And are built upon [EDUCATED BY]
the foundation of the APOSTLES and PROPHETS,
Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Those who have been INFILTRATED into ACE insist that God's Word cannot be understood without TRAINED THEOLOGIANS whose every writing proves that they are not PERMITTED to Speak forGod.
2Pet. 3:2 That ye may be MINDFUL of the WORDS
which were SPOKEN before by the holy PROPHETS,
and of the commandment of us the APOSTLES of the Lord and Saviour:
Worship is IN the made-perfect human Spirit devoted to The Truth or The Word, Logos or Regulative Principle
1Tim. 2:7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an APOSTLE,
(I speak the TRUTH in Christ, and lie not;) a TEACHER of the Gentiles
in faith and verity.
AND THE UNIVERSITY WOMEN SAY, NOT ME, SUCKER
1Tim. 2:11 Let the woman LEARN in silence with all subjection.
Paul silenced BOTH male and female: all were to be peaceable or SILENT "so that we might ALL come to a knowledge of THE TRUTH." The Truth is the Word or Logos.. It silences preaching, singing or playing instruments so that ALL might LEARN in Silence. Osburn doesn't want the Word or Logos as Regulative Principle to be SPOKEN or PREACHED by being READ in the synagogue or church ONCE each week.
The Biblical and historical fact is that men and women ARE different. God decreed that the arena of women was the home without which little boys grow up gender bent as present evidence among performing preachers and "musical worship ministers" amply prove. Mature Christians run for their life without knowing that PERFORMANCE intends to seduce both genders. Some preaching forms and most music induce endorphins or natural morphine. The effects which are peddled as "spiritual" are FIGHT, FLIGHT and SEXUALITY. Sure, Lucifer (mostly female) knew that when he/she came into the garden of Eden with wind, string and percussion instruments. She is the BEAST or ZOE and the "female instructing principle." As the king/queen of Trye he/she is called the "singer and harp-playing prostitute." In the Greek world all ISTS such as harpISTS were "sorcerers" and therefore PARASITES.
"Church" is named after Circe or Kirk who was the holy whore burried within view of Patmos. She uses music and drugs to seduce men and turn them into swine. Her ministry is to make dung patty cakes to feed her beasts. Jesus built an Ekklesia or Synagogue (both Greek) as a School of the Bible. Thomas Campbell called the church The School of Christ" where giving heed to the Word was the unique worship word of Paul. The HOLY WHORES intend to MOUNT the Lion of the Tribe of Judah as the them in ancient Babylonian, Canaanite and Egyptian "worship rule." The word SINGERS leads naturally in the Old Testament to prostitute while male musicians in a religious sense were Sodomites.
Strabo quoted here: Indeed, these facts are confirmed by the other writers as well. Further, it is not reasonable to suppose that the same people regard as wretched a life without many women, and yet at the same time regard as pious and just a life that is wholly bereft of women. And of course to regard as "both god-fearing and capnobatae"
"capnobatae," or "smoke-treaders" (see Herodotus 1. 202 and 4.75) to the custom of generating an intoxicating vapor by throwing hemp-seed upon red-hot stones. Berkel and Wakefield would emend, respectively to "capnopatae" and "capnobotae" ("smoke-eaters," i.e., people who live on food of no value).
This is now produced by music and Amos said that the clergy caused the people to go into captivity hungering and thirsting for the WORD but could not find it.
those who are without women is very much opposed to the common notions on that subject;for all agree in regarding the women as the chief founders of religion, and it is the women who provoke the men to the more attentive worship of the gods, to festivals, and to supplications, and it is a rare thing for a man who lives by himself to be found addicted to these things.
Paul also designated the ELDERS as the ONLY Pastor-teachers of the local congregation along with the evangelist deacons. His direct command was that, imitating Jesus as the "son" and Paul's example, they teach that which has been taught and refute those who opposed. Men are trying to included females because their own unlawful positions are coming under censure from God and all Biblical literates.
Qedesha, also spelled kedesha or kedeshah , Akkadian qadishtu one of a class of sacred prostitutes found throughout the ancient Middle East, especially in the worship of the fertility goddess Astarte (Ashtoreth). Prostitutes, who often played an important part in official temple worship, could be either male or female.
In Egypt, a goddess named Qedeshu, Lady of Kadesh (Syria), was worshiped in the 19th and 20th dynasties (1292--c. 1075 BC). Her representation is found on private stelae of middle-class workers. She is shown nude, posed frontally on a lioness (or a leopard), holding arrows in her hands. Although Israelite prophets and reformers repeatedly denounced sacred prostitution, the early Israelites seem to have adopted the local Canaanite rites, which they apparently practiced publicly until the reform of King Josiah about 621 BC. Britannica Members
The end time Goddess worship is the MUSICAL worship of the Babylon Prostitute (Rev 18). Apollo or Abaddon or Apollyon was the "father of musical harmony, twanging bow strings to send singing arrows, liars and thieves." This defines EXTERNAL MELODY by which Satan's agents incarnated as ZOE intends to LITERALLY BREAK your heart and kill you spiritually.
The DOVE resting on Jesus was to prove that God is FATHER and SON and not MOTHER OF THE GODS and DAUGHTERS as temple prostitutes along with emasculated males.
The QUDSH were the holy whores and the LUST is for the feminist or emasculated male priests to RIDE on and TRIUMPH over the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
As a fulfilled prophecy of Jesus who fired the doctors of the law who took away the key to knowledge, the PRODUCT of the scholarly MANUFACTURING plants just make themselves sound like fools. But, then, Paul indicated of the Corinthians that "fools love to be fooled." So, why not MANUFACTURE a host of such blind guides to lead the almost totality of civilization who want to be blind right into the ditch.
The end-time MARK of the Beast is that you MUST receive the MARK before you can BUY AND SELL in the TRAFFICK OF THE MUSICAL (FEMINIST) SECTARIANS which, in the Greek are identified as SORCERERS and PARASITES. This fall means that once honerable men have SOLD THEIR SOUL to try to become rich and famous and keep up with Max Lucado and hope for his endorsement.
Carroll D. Osburn: Such fundamentalist views on women in the church are primarily the result of reaction against cultural changes and only secondarily the result of biblical proof-texting. This, basically, is our legacy" (p. 17)
I am sure that comes as a surprise to all historic theologians who left us a record of the role of women in the church. The Catholics called the "widows in deed" and the "perpetucal virgin nuns" deaconesses but they were never given any "stand up--speak out roles." In fact the very title led to severe problems when women turned church into religion. Jesus used the ekklesia as the model of what the church should be andeven before the time of Christ we have a wonderful play. IUn 390 BC Aristophanes speaks of women at the Ecclesia.
That was a prophetic "patternism" of women henpecking their way into performance roles: no band of males would ever concoct a "worship assembly" where males sing, clap and maybe play instruments." Nor, would one of them get up and presumpt to present a rhetorical (hypocritic) speech.
History shows that this began just outside of the garden of Eden where EVE became ZOE because she had been wholly seduced (Paul) as a bride is seduced before her husband gets a chance. Eve became the mediatrix and was and is worshipped in Gnosticism and Catholicism. So it probably isn't true that non-instrumental churches of Christ introduced all evils including bad breath. Such people have a problem with authority thought to begin with their mothers.
The ACU Agenda: Train Prophetic roles, Channelers and Facilitators the method of subverting the 'hierarchial" views of Jesus and Paul. The end-time subversion is the beginninng-time version which is
"Higher Self is the term given to that divine part of each human being which knows ultimate Truth. Ascended Master is the name given to a great teacher such as Jesus, Buddha, Saint Germain, etc. by New Age devotees. Great White Brotherhood is a name for the collective group of Ascended Masters.
"Simply stated, Channeling is the process whereby a human host claims to enter into an altered state of consciousness thereby allowing a spirit entity or alien being from some distent physical or spiritual realm to take possession of their body and give instructions to New Age believers.
This is exactly the claim of Theology-Speak which claims the mediating role over Christ and calls everyone outside of the Group Mentality idiots and the "laity."
McCartney's pastor at the Boulder Valley Vineyard, Rev. James Ryle, whom McCartney says is the other major influence in his life, conducts a "prophetic" ministry and participates in conferences with men who claim to be prophets in the first-century sense of the term.
Ryle believes Promise Keepers, of which he is a board member, is the fulfillment of the Biblically prophesied end-time army described in the Book of Joel--
a terrifying army from which there is no escape.
"Promise Keepers urges men to form "accountability" groups of no more than five members, within which they are expected to submit all aspects of their lives to review and rebuke. Each member must answer any probes concerning his marriage, family, finances, sexuality, or business activity.
Osburn cannot grasp that the CHANGE AGENDA is the feminist or effeminate agenda of the MOTHER OF THE GODS who were spiritual and literal prostitutes as MARKED by the use of music which Lucifer who came into the garden of Eden with wind, string and percussion instruments. Inherent in Paul's writing and all of the contemporaneous literature, Satan wholly seduced Eve but Adam was sodomized willingly.
Carroll D. Osburn: "There is major disagreement on whether one should use the Bible to undergird doctrines in a "proof-texting way, or whether one should allow doctrine to emerge from understanding texts in their literary and historical contexts. Certainly these differing views of Scripture lie behind differing views of women in the church" (p. 90).
"The Bible is not so much a 'heaven-sent answer book' as a historical book produced within and for a historical community-- yet it serves as Scripture today because people find themselves accountable to it. That is what make its Scripture" (WOMEN IN THE CHURCH: Reclaiming the Ideal, p. 46).
Peter said that Jesus left us an EXAMPLE that we should follow. This word means a written record. This was facilited through Eye and Ear witnesses to the teachings and confirming miracles of God in Christ. Peter also said that this is a MARK: if they do not "teach that which has been written and taught" then you can KNOW that they are false teachers.
Therefore, this is an anti-Christian and anti-Biblical view of Scripture.
"...but another step must be taken if the text would actually become Scripture and that is to engage the text in dialogue to ask, 'Now that I understand the meaning of this text for today, can I accept this" (p. 47).
He also wrote:
"Paul's arguments carried weight in HIS DAY even though they may not necessarily be convincing by today's standards" (p. 135).
Consistent with this "new age" religion, Kregg Hood approves the RAISING OF THE DEAD in Africa.
It is interesting that the SCHOLARS we have examined CANNOT quote the Bible in context: they cannot even quote Martin Luther without perverting his statements. This is because SCHOLARS steal from scholars who steal from scholars. Of course they cannot BUY or SELL books and "bookings" and approval unless the REPEAT THE WORDS their "lords" have already spoken. This is the MARK and no true believer can get rich publishing books without the IMPRIMATUR.
And when I was present with you, and wanted, I was chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied: and in all things I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and so will I keep myself. 2 Cor 11:9
As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia. 2 Cor 11:10
Wherefore? because I love you not? God knoweth. 2 Cor 11:11
But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we. 2 Cor 11:12
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 2 Cor 11:13
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2 Cor 11:14
Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. 2 Cor 11:15
Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them. Matthew 4:24
For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed. Acts 8:7
Now it happened, as we went to pray, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling. Acts 16:16
And the evil spirit answered and said, "Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?" :16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. Acts 19:15
Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times (end times) some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons. 1 Timothy 4:1
For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, [which] go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Revelation 16:14
The FALSE prophet meant a MUSICIAN under Lucifer (Zoe) as the harp-playing prostitute. Remember that Carroll D. Osburn claims that at ACU they train PROPHETS, CHANELLERS and FACILITATORS:
I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. Jer 23:25
How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; Jer 23:26
Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams, which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal. Jer 23:27
Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that steal my words every one from his neighbour. Je.23:30
Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that use their tongues, and say, He saith. Jer 23:31
Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the Lord, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the Lord. Jer 23:32
The stream out of ACU is that the Bible was worked out, as articulated by Rubel Shell and John York in a partnership betwee the THEN culture and God's help. Now, culture has changed and WE cannot trust the old Bible but must have another PARTNERSHIP with God to work out our own salvation and Scripture for OUR culture.
FEMINIST THEOLOGY worshiping the MOTHER OF THE GOD, is embodied in most Musical Worship Teams. Sophia is known as the SERPENT or musical enchanter. Her daughter, ZOE, the mother of "jehovah" forced Him into forming musical worship teams to worship Sophia and Zoe before she permitted Him up to the seventh heaven, just below GOD. Zoe is known in the literature as the BEAST and the "female instructing principle." She is identical to LUCIFER.
"Music" is connected AS worship almost totally in the literature to the worship of goddesses whom may be masked as males, or the male DIONYSUS (the god of NEW WINESKINS) who is unmistakengly EFFEMINATE because his mother began dressing him as a woman. Therefore, the WINESKINS and SPECTACLE worship was devoted to PERVERTED gods and goddess. The "priests," in the words of Paul were totally EMASCULATED but as in ALL priesthoods they were male prostitutes, Catamites or Sodomites. The FIRST ADVENT of Christ was marked by a priesthood who anticipated that "messiah" would be Dionysus worshiped sexually and musically in the Abomination of Desolation in the Jerusalem temple. See Second Maccabees. The end-time "worship" in church which honors CIRCE the holy prostitute every time we say it, will be overrun with "rhetoricians, sOPHISts (Ophis=Serpents in Revelation), singers, musicians and CRAFTSMEN or TECHNE who manufacture RITUALS to make sure that God doesn't fail. To say fluteIST or guitarIST was a MARK of perversion. This is why Jesus cast out the TEAM more or less violently as one EJECTS DUNG. In the Greek background they are the sorcerers or soothsayers or poisoners. Because they EAT the widows into distress they were all called PARASITES.
Of the SERPENT: "The verb nachash (serpent) always means to enchant, fascinate, bewitch; or of one having and using occult knowledge. See Gen. 30:27; 44:5, 15. Lev. 19:26. Deut. 18:10. 1 Kings 20:33. 2 Kings 17:17; 21:6. 2 Chron. 33:6. So also is the noun used in Num. 23:23; 24:1."
Nachash is often associated with Lachash or SPEAKING IN TONGUES. The SERPENT was the fallen LUCIFER who came into the garden of Eden with wind, string and percussion instruments. She as the end-time harlot worship will go back into hell. The serpent mens: The Musicl Enchanters. Assyria was the Tallest Tree in the garden of Eden.
Speaking directly to the "mantic" behaviour of music and speaking in tongues in Corinth, it is noted from the Classical writers that:
"The spirits were thought to speak in murmurings or piping sounds (Isa 8:19), which could be imitated by the medium (witch or ventriloquist)...Most spiritual and popular was the interpretation of dreams.
It also was the case that mediums intentionally would convert themselves into a semi-waking trance. In this way the suitable mediums attained to a certain kind of clarvoyance, found among various peoples.
This approaches the condition of an ecstatically aroused pseudo-prophet.. In Greece, too, oracles were pronounced by the Phythian prophetess who by vapors and the like was aroused to a practice of the mantic art. (Int Std Bible Ency, p. 2466)
Now the name of the man was Nabal, and the name of his wife Abigail; and she was a woman of good understanding, and of a beautiful countenance: but the man was churlish and evil in his doings; and he was of the house of Caleb. 1 Samuel 25:3

These are the best of times to be involved in Christian education!
If we are to have a truly significant impact upon the national and international scene,
faculties of religion must play leading prophetic roles in channeling and facilitating whatever changes loom ahead.
The problem is too many graduates from once Christian colleges with university degrees: (about 115F.) Martin Luther who is about 100% distorted warned the new prophets. Judas was a sicarri: a daggar man who carried the flute case. The Sicarri assinated people in public places and then yelled: "Murder, foul murder, catch the murderer." False PROFITS do that. Luther always had great words for the great pretenders.
8. These words are blows and thrusts for the false apostles [PAGE 227] and preachers. Paul is mortal enemy to the blockheads who make great boast,
pretending to what they do not possess and to what they cannot do;
who boast of having the Spirit in great measure; who are ready to counsel and aid the whole world;
who pride themselves on the ability to invent something new. It is to be a surpassingly precious and heavenly thing they are to spin out of their heads, as the dreams of pope and monks have been in time past.
"We do not so," says Paul. "We rely not upon ourselves or our wisdom and ability. We preach not what we have ourselves invented. But this is our boast and trust in Christ before God,that we have made of you a divine epistle; have written upon your hearts,John Calvin defining the self-appointed prophets in Ezekiel 13: The PRAISE word is h1984 the source for the word "Lucifer"
not our thoughts, but the Word of God. Luther Law and Gospel
When therefore the Prophet turns his discourse to the false prophets, there is no doubt of his intention toreprove the whole people for attending to such fallacies while they despised the true doctrine, and not only so, but even rejected it with fury.
Say therefore to the prophets of Israel while prophesying, say to those prophesying out of their own hearts.
Here he concedes the name of prophets of Israel to those who thrust themselves forward, and rashly boasted that they were commanded to utter their own imaginations, or what the devil had suggested.
He calls false prophets foolish, because they doubtless fiercely insulted the true servants of God -- just like upstarts puffed up with wonderful self-conceit;
for the devil, who reigns in them, is the father of pride: hence they carry themselves haughtily, arrogate all things to themselves, and wish to be thought angels come down from heaven.
These vile (nabal) prophesiers are named after the nebal or empty harp made out of an old wineskin.
Thomas Campbell Defines worship
"let us, with an open bible before us, distinguish and contemplate that religion which it enjoins and exhibits--I mean the religion of christianity, for it also exhibits the religion of Judaism; but with this, in the mean time, we christians have nothing directly to do-- we derive our religion immediately from the New Testament. TC
See Why Thomas Paine was a Deist. Therefore, those who IMPROVISE are the true LEGALISTS because FAITH ONLY to Martin Luther meant FAITH ONLY In the revealed Words of God.
We submit that these issues are not birds: just flying around. They have been carefully hatched and sent out from once Christian colleges 'FULLY FLEDGED." There is nothing, according to Amos, more powerful than music which causes people to fly all over looking for the water of the Word but they never find it because the priests were too busy drinking and playing music bought with the purse of the poor:
"In certain ancient Israelite prophetic groups, music was used to achieve the ecstatic state, in which the participants, in their accompanying dancing, were believed to have been seized by the hand of Yahweh, the God of Israel, as in the case of Saul, the 11th-century-bc king of Israel.
The Pythia (priestess of Apollo who is Apollyon) of the Greek oracle at Delphi often went into an ecstatic state during which she uttered sounds revealed to her by the python (the snake, the symbol of resurrection), after drinking water from a certain spring.
Her "words" were then interpreted by a priest to help a suppliant find a way to avoid calamities, especially death. In primitive religions, ecstasy was a technique highly developed by shamans, religious personages with healing and psychic-transformation powers, in their "soul," or "spirit," flights. (See Delphic oracle.) "ecstasy" Encyclopedia Britannica Online. Or Click Here is you have membership
But of the Sicarri as in Judas Sicarri, the practice was to go to the loud festivals. You used your dagger to stab the enemy in the back. Then, you yelled: "Murder, foul murder, stop the murderer."
Circe or "church" could do that:
For Circe long had lov'd the youth in vain,
Till love, refus'd, converted to disdain
Then, mixing pow'rful herbs, with magic art,
- She chang'd his form, who could not change his heart;
- Constrain'd him in a bird, and made him fly,
- With party-color'd plumes, a chatt'ring pie.
Wicca says: "There are many paths to spiritual growth. Wicca is a participatory revelation, a celebratory action leading to greater understanding of oneself and the universe. We believe there is much to learn by studying our past, through myth, through ritual drama, through poetry and music, through love and through living in harmony with the Earth. "
Ezekiel continues to warn against Seekerism exhilarating the audience
Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against your pillows (clothing to suggest after hours free time), wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly (lift up), and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly. Eze 13:20
Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life: Eze 13:22
Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the Lord. Eze 13:23
"Ezekiel in describing the necromantic ritual of the witches, says they fastened 'magic bands' (kesatot) on their wrists and with them 'trapped souls like birds' (Ezekiel 13:20). This rare word is related to the Sumerian KI-ShU, meaning some kind of magical imprisonment, but we have to look to Greek for its precise significance. In the form kiste, Latin cista, it appears as a container used in certain mystery rituals of the Dionysiac cult, supposedly for the carrying of secret implements. In fact, wherever the cista is graphically represented it is shown as a basket from which a snake is emerging. Thus on sarcophagi inscribed with Bacchic scenes, the cista is shown being kicked open by Pan and the snake raising itself from the half-opened lid. The snake is an important feature of the Dionysiac cult and imagery. The Maenads of Euripides' Bacchae have serpents entwined in their hair and round their limbs, and the snake was the particular emblem of the Phyrigian Sabazios (Sabadius) with whom Dionysos is identified." - John M. Allegro, The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross
Now what is PROPHETIC?
Prophetic could be understood as teaching if some of the band of merry men did not see themselves as APOSTLES or even CHRISTS. But, getting a NEW VISION to make the olden Bible up to date is proof that lots of men now have convinced themselves that they are APOSTLES OR PROPHETS. "Prophesying" was usually in a musical sense which was always "the effeminate art."Mantis: diviner, seer, prophet. Used with Apollo and Cassandra, of the Pythian priestess, Dionysus
II. a kind of grasshopper, the praying mantis, Mantis religiosa, Theoc.10.18, Dsc.Eup.1.149.
Manteia, Ep. mant-eię , Ion. mant-ęďę , hę, ( [manteuomai] ) prophetic power, power of divination, oracle, prophecy

"Singing served as a means of inducing ecstatic prophecy (speaking in tongues).
Thus the essential relationship between music and prophecy can be clearly seen.
This relationship also explains why the expression for "making music" and "prophesying" was often identical in the ancient tongues. origen contra celsum 8.67.
The Hebrew word Naba signifies not only "to prophesy" but also "to make music." (Quasten, Johannes, Music and Worship in Pagan and Christian Antiquity, p. 39)
"Most likely, Israel first became acquainted with ecstatic prophecy in Canaan, where it was connected with Baal religion. The Egyptian story of Wen Amon tells of a religious festival in the Phoenician port of Byblos where 'the god seized one of the youths and made him possessed'--that is, he fell into an ecstatic state.Centuries later, prophets of Baal, imported from Phoenicia, worked themselves into an ecstatic frenzy on the top of Mount Carmel as they danced around the altar, cut themselves with knives, and raised their cultic shouts (I Kings 18:20-29).
This type of orgiastic prophecy was also known in Asia Minor, from which it spread into the Mediterranean world and later took the form of the orgies of the cult of Dionysus" (Anderson, Theology of the O.T., p. 229). (This always included musical instruments)
The nature of prophecy is twofold:
either inspired (by visions or revelatory auditions),or acquired (by learning certain techniques). In many cases both aspects are present.The goal of learning certain prophetic techniques is to reach an ecstatic state in which revelations can be received. That state might be reached through the use of music, dancing, drums, violent bodily movement, and self-laceration. Britannica Online
"The ecstatic condition appears to have been normal to the prophetic guilds of the period of the judges and the early kingdom, and for the first time in 1 Sam. 10:5-10, 19:20-24 the contagiousness of the condition comes to light, in the case of Saul.
"The trained musicians which eventually appear around the time of David and Solomon mark a distinctive change in the history of Jewish music. Before this time much of the music was made by women." (Zondervan Pict., Music p. 313).

The Warrior Levitical Musicians who didn't make music but noise are intimately connected with slaughtering the types of Lord Jesus Christ.
Channeling sounds like witchcraft which is the model for the "Emerging Church of Christ" using musical and other rituals to restore the BURDEN LADED on the "audience" which Jesus died to REMOVE.
See THE EMERGING CHURCH OF CHRIST which suggest exactly what the Wicca or Neo-pagans suggests. It is called a SPECTACLE OF WORSHIP but it CANNOT be spiritual worship.
Gallup says that belief in channeling has increased from 11% to 15% in the past decade. Rubel Shelly, for instance bills MUSICAL WORSHIP TEAMS as able to "help lead you into the presence of God." That's pretty postmodern since Jesus Christ died to become our ONE and ONLY Mediator.
Channeling is a process whereby an individual (the "channeler") claims to have been invaded by a spirit entity which speaks through the channeler. The channeling craze began in earnest in 1972.
Joseph Campbell notes that when the old religion is brought into question, the mind CRACKS AWAY into archaic forms of worship. Fortunately, Campbell notes that this works only UNTIL THE MIND KICKS IN from the psychology- induced schizophrenia now the goal of postmodernism. John Naisbitt agrees
"In turbulent times, in times of great change, people head for the two extremes: fundamentalism and personal, spiritual experience...With no membership lists or even a coherent philosophy or dogma, it is difficult to define or measure the unorganized New Age movement. But in every major U.S. and European city, thousands who seek insight and personal growth cluster around a metaphysical bookstore, a spiritual teacher, or an education center." 1. J. Naisbitt & P. Aburdene, Megatrends 2000", William Morrow & Company, New York, NY (1990)
Facilitating means MIND MANIPULATION which according to Lynn Anderson must be done to drive the people to the edge without getting fired. It is called prayerful Brinkmanship. Rubel Shelly advertised for a MUSICAL WORSHIP MINISTER. He was to be the FACILITATOR and the goal that he would "help lead the people into the presence of God." Of course, he is confusing the presence of lust-generated sexual feelings with the presence of God. That WAS the pagan system and it is like CHANNELING.
Carroll D. Osburn: p. 14-15 An outdated curriculum from a sectarian past that placed emphasis upon transmitting doctrinaire positions will not suffice if we would engage convincingly the larger arenas of current religious thought.
Our graduate programs must train students how to think, to investigate the biblical text afresh, to feel the pulse of the world around them, to sense where things ought to go, and provide the kind of experiences that will enable servants to go out into churches and communities and provide direction. Hall
Didn't Jesus as the HEAD of the body provide that?
Engaging larger arenas of current thought probably means "recruit more from the denominations." It assuredly agrees with the larger arena but most larger arenas cannot by definition be CHRISTIAN which means to be "despised and rejected of men."
This SENSING is based on the fact that Father and Son HAVE HAD their dispensations. This causes them to HALLUCINATE--like the Jim Jones and David Koresh types that they have the JUNIOR MEMBER OF THE "FAMILY OF GOD" living in their CARNAL bodies and providing the SENSATION that they are the LATTER DAY APOSTLES OR EVEN CHRISTS.
John Mark Hicks notes of the INCARNATIONAL VIEWS that there seems to be a denial that FULL DEITY dwelled in a HUMAN BODY OF FLESH. Of course, that defines Anti-Christ.
Hicks notes, as any literate reader knows, that this new TRINITY or actually TRITHEISM is new to churches of Christ. It is also NEW to all of church history, even among those who speak of the trinity. NO ONE IN HISTORY PRIOR TO LUCADO AND SHELLY actively promoted the idea that god is actually a FAMILY OF GOD, separated into three independent PEOPLE. Well, maybe one.
"Doctrine" means the TEACHINGS OF CHRIST. The CORE GOSPEL repudiates all but 7 facts ABOUT Jesus. Therefore, any faith or practice derived from the doctrinal teachings in the epistles is dangerous in the NEW AGE RELIGIONS: the Age of Aquarius, the perverted religion.
BAPTISM AS DOCTRINAIRE SECTARIANISM
He demeans the clear teachings of Jesus, the Apostles and ALL church history until the Zwingli influenced Baptists who began in 1525 to preach FAITH ONLY. However, this was repudiated even by Luther the "father" of faith only. BAPTISM is one of the objects of FAITH: if you don't have faith in Christ- ordained BAPTISM then you just don't have faith.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mk 16:15
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;
but he that believeth not shall be damned. Mk 16:16
Believeth not or those who refused to be baptized to have their beloved sins remitted were traitors who belonged to the king of the world:
"BELIEVETH NOT" means that they disobeyed by rejecting baptism.Apisteo (g569) means to be unbelieving, meaning to disobey
Apistos (g571) disbelieving, i.e. without Christian faith, a heathen, untrustworthy (person), faithless, infidel.
John wrote that the Pharisees "rejected the counsel of God" by refusing "to be baptized."
There are two teams in the present STAR WARS: those who sign up with Jesus Christ while everyone else, sincere or not, serves Satan
The Pharisees and doctors of the law were enemies of God and the Old Testament. Pharisees wrote their own laws specifically to repudiate the Words of God and steal widow's houses.
- But the Pharisees and experts in the law (Phds) REJECTED God's purpose for themselves, because they had not been baptized by John. Luke 7:30
"Rejected" means that they call God a liar and are still damned because they are still on Satan's team. Rejecteth is:
Atheteo (g114) means to DISESTEEM, DESPISE, disannul, frustrate, bring to nought, reject. It means a TREACHEROUS PERSON. It includes Kategoros an accuser, a BETRAYER
"In these words you must note, in the first place, that here stand God's commandment and institution, lest we doubt that Baptism is divine, not devised nor invented by men. For as truly as I can say, No man has spun the Ten Commandments, the Creed, and the Lord's Prayer out of his head, but they are revealed and given by God Himself,so also I can boast that Baptism is no human trifle, but instituted by God Himself,
moreover, that it is most solemnly and strictly commanded that we must be baptized or we cannot be saved, lest any one regard it as a trifling matter, like putting on a new red coat.
For it is of the greatest importance that we esteem Baptism excellent, glorious, and exalted, for which we contend and fight chiefly,
because the world is now so full of sects clamoring that Baptism is an external thing, and that external things are of no benefit.
VOCAL SINGING to TEACH or PREACH the inspired Word of Christ or Spirit rather than to MAKE MUSIC.
Anyone who can claim that the church of Christ became SECTARIAN AND doctrinaire by REFUSING to add instruments when they and ALL of church history had repudiated instruments based on the BIBLICAL fact that INSTRUMENTS were always associated with Satan who used singing and instruments to seduce people in TRAFFICK and was called THE HARP PLAYING PROSTITUTE.
For instance, the distracted world attempts to serve God by setting apart houses, churches, cloisters; vestures, gold-trimmed, silk and  every other kind;
silver vessels and images; bells and organs, candles and lamps;
the money for which expense should have been appropriated to the poor if the object was to make an offering to God.
Further, it keeps up a muttering and wailing in the churches day and night.
But true praise and honor of God, a service that cannot be confined to place or person, is quietly ignored the world over.
The pretenses of priests and monks about their system of exercises being service to the Lord, are false and delusive. Click for Luther on Romans 15 Which the peer decreed doctor of the Law readeth not.
Carroll D. Osburn page 11: "We must sort out very carefully what is biblical and what is cultural about our religion, and not bind the latter. Divorce and remarriage and women in the church remain unresolved, but such must remain mere issues and not be allowed to shape our emerging identity.Instrumental music will remain an issue,
but it certainly is not deserving of center stage, and never was. There is something grossly distorted about a religion which depends for its cohesiveness upon paltry issues that KILL the spirit."
No one can claim to be a scholar or Doctor of the Law and make such a statement. That is why Jesus "fired" the Doctors of the law because they TAKE AWAY THE KEY TO KNOWLEDGE.
See the contradiction: WE put instruments at CENTER STAGE but you are sectarian for refusing MUSICIANS, ACTORS and SINGERS at the center reserved for Jesus and His Words.
The Bible and Jesus put instrumental music OFF CENTER STAGE for a good reason. If you have Jesus as the "actor" Who promises to be with us as our TEACHER (not a homosexual musical performer), AND you put a THEATRICAL PERFORMANCE GROUP between the "audience" and Jesus then you have BLASPHEMED THE SPIRIT because Jesus speaks to us through His Word which He claimed was SPIRIT and LIFE (John 6:63)
The "first heresy largely pervading the church" according to McClintock and Strong was the imposition of the musical, clergy PRESENTER or music leader.
Another sower of discorder was the use of HUMAN COMPOSITIONS to replace the Word of God, the Spirit or "that which is written" by the Spirit of Christ.
Instruments were the next CENTER STAGE sower of discord.
Carroll D. Osburn: There is something grossly distorted about a religion which depends for its cohesiveness upon paltry issues that kill the spirit."
Paltry: ragged, worthless, trifling, insignificant, contemptible, petty.
There are MANY spirits. The Holy Spirit carries the name Jesus Christ or Jehovah- Saves. The unholy spirits were always CALLED UP by instruments such as the witches "familiar spirit" or an old wineskin:
"So saying, he led the way, and the other followed, a godlike man. And from them--even as the din ariseth of woodcutters in the glades of a mountain, and afar is the sound thereof heard--  so from them went up a CLANGING from the broad-wayed earth, a CLANGING of BRONZE and of HIDE and of well-wrought shields, as they thrust one at the other with swords and two-edged spears."
Many "teams" claim that they are the MEDIATOR to lead people into the presence of God. And one doubts that a talented musician can pop up without claiming for THEIR SONGS exactly what the Bible claims for Jesus and HIS songs."Singing served as a means of INDUCING ecstatic prophecy (speaking in tongues).
Thus the essential relationship between MUSIC and PROPHECY can be clearly seen.
"This relationship also explains why the expression for "making MUSIC" and "PROPHESYING" was often identical in the ancient tongues. origen contra celsum 8.67.
The Hebrew word Naba signifies not only "to prophesy" but also "to make music." (Quasten, Johannes, Music and Worship in Pagan and Christian Antiquity, p. 39)

This is the PROOF of the end-time Harlot Worship but they will go back into hell:
And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman (techne) 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 18:22
This is why Jesus cast out the Minstrel Team, more or less violently using a word meaning "like dung" the MUSICAL TEAM ready to do the religious ritual for the dead. This was the MARZEAH which condemned Israel according to Amos because it was the WORSHIP OF THE STARRY HOST to which they were sentenced because of MUSICAL IDOLATRY at Mount Sinai.
Why did Psalm 41 prophesy that Judas and the clergy would try to defeat him with "playing instruments and making a joyful noise before the Lord?" This was the warriors panic attack which should never be turned onto a believer. See how the Dead Sea Scroll prove that the attack upon Jesus was "musical affliction" of the Warrior Musicians. After all, they Levitical sounders had been under the command of the king and commanders of the army.
The writer, perhaps ignorant of the Word of God, has accused God of condemning music and therefore being CONTEMPTIBLE.
On pages 90-91 you will see one of the new PARADIGMS to replace PATTERNS: all faculty members must at ever opportunity use the HEGELIAN DIALECTIC (Machiavelli, Hitler, Gramsci) to ASSOCIATE not using TWO CUPS to not using MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS as the works of human hands. Of course this is evil and anti- Christian but postmodernism does not define it as lying.
RIDICULE is the PSYCHOLOGICAL VIOLENCE USED BY THESE PSYCHOLOGY TRAINED persons who, as postmoderns, feel that DRIVING YOU INTO SCHIZOPHRENIA is a MANDATORY goal before they can slip the dagger (Judas Sicarri was a dagger man).
The APPROVED EXAMPLE of Jesus and the DIRECT COMMAND of Paul outlaws anything which produces "spiritual excitement" because it produces a BURDEN. Osburn is probably thinking of enthusiasm coined by Philo as Enthus O Mania: madness, out of your mind, but the desirable condition of frenzy to prove that the gods were jumping and jiving.
Carroll D. Osburn: "There should be room in the Christian fellowship for those who differ on whether more than one cup in communion is acceptable, whether the communion bread is to be pinched or snapped, whether one can eat in the church building, whether funds can be used from the church treasury to support orphan homes,
whether the Lord's Supper must be taken every Sunday, or whether instrumental music is used in worship.
There should be room in the Christian fellowship for those who believe that Christ is the son of God, but who differ on eschatological theories such as premillennialism, ecclesiological matters such as congregational organization, or soteriological matters such as whether baptism is 'for' or 'because of' the remission of sins.
Carroll D. Osburn has everyone's permission to GO BUILD such an ecumenical structure. But, be warned, as at Cane Ridge, the Methodists and Baptists see ECUMENICAL as you opening the gates to your sheepfold and deserting the sheep. Therefore, they did and will always, steal your lambs because YOU are not a true shepherd.
The problem, dear doctor, is that none has the Biblical or ethical authority to INFILTRATE AND DIVERT peacable churches to impose things they do not believe in. They have no responsibility or wish to visit all of the denominational churches and declare YOU ARE OK BECAUSE I'M OK. They would probably call the MAD SQUAD
Maybe Carrol D. Osburn forgot that the "despised" John Locke is the father of both our political and religious freedom. Now, we have the right to fellowship in a local group because it is virtual insanity to DEMAND that we fellowship the WHOLE WIDE WORLD.
PREMILLENNIALISM means, in Lucado's words, that they MURDERED Jesus rather than FULFILL the prophecy of SACRIFICING Him in the style of the temple court yard with MUSICAL MOCKING. This heresy says that "Jesus UTTERLY FAILED but He is about to give it another try. However, the NOW BUT NOT YET KINGDOM cannot arrive without OUR paving the way so that He will not fail again." No thanks!
Jude speaks of a COMMON THEME such as the well- known Book of Enoch which is supported by many parallel documents. Bible writers often quote secular writers without saying they are inspired.
The MORTAL SIN in many views was that Satan taught the YOUTH how to form choirs, use instrumental music, break old MARRIAGE laws including incest and the product which Paul warned about. The Musical Satan- taught always has PERVERTED SEXUALITY attached to it probably beginning in the garden of Eden and tried on Jesus because the Jews HOPED that Messiah would be Dionysus whose worship was part of the Abomination of Desolation in the temple:
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Rom 1:24
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Rom 1: 25
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: Rom 1: 26
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. Rom 1: 27
Enoch is quoted at least 128 times in the New Testament. Enoch shows how Satan used the evil of MUSIC to silence the Words of God after they had already rejected them:
How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. Jude 18
These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. Jude 19
The word for MOCKERS is similar to the CHILDREN who mocked Jesus and others by PIPING hoping to induce the perverted Dionysus lament singing and dancing the Greek Choral.
To a literate Bible student the issue of INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC began with Satan trying to steal (successfully) both worship and worshippers away from God. Lucifer as the Babylonian Inanna or Gnostic ZOE STOLE both female leadership and INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC from Ea whose name indicates that he was a SECOND INCARNATION of Lamech, the father of all of the ARTS AND CRAFTS to steal worship to God.
LUCIFER THE HARP PLAYING PROSTITUTE WHO WAS IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN PERSONIFIED AS THE KING/ QUEEN OF TYRE.
From the garden of Eden where Satan or Lucifer came with her Wind, String and Percussion instruments onward, the use of musical instruments is the MARK of those who can be seduced by the carnal senses. The end- time Babylon Whore is patterned by John on Patmos after Circe who in existing stories used INSTRUMENTS and DRUGS (Sorcery) to seduce people. Then, she turned them into SWINE and spent lots of time making DUNG PATTIES to feed them. This defines the non-Biblical scheme of sermonizing to SILENCE the Words of Jesus Christ.
There are three groups by Jacob through Rachael. God has chosen these from Christian nations that will stand up for Him against the Lucifer, the antichrist, in these last days.
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Eze.28:13

Chrysostom wrote of the Pythoness of Delphi: "The same Pythoness then is said, being a female, to sit at times upon the tripod of Apollo astride, and thus the evil spirit ascending from beneath and entering the lower part of her body, fills the woman with madness, and she with dishevelled hair begins to play the bacchanal and to foam at the mouth, and thus being in a frenzy to utter the words of her madness."The word glossolalia came from the Greek vernacular, pneuma and lalein glossais.
It is actually a derivative of words used to describe the utterances of the worshippers of pagan Greek gods and goddesses.
The Lucifer (Latin) character lacks three tribes who remain faithful to God. These are symbolized in her breastplate.
"Jacob had 13 children, 10 of whom were founders of tribes of Israel. Leah bore him his only daughter, Dinah, and six sons--Reuben, Simeon, Levi (who did not found a tribe, but was the ancestor of the Levites), Judah (from whom a tribe and the Davidic monarchy were descended), Issachar, and Zebulun. Leah's maidservant, Zilpah, bore him Gad and Asher, and Rachel's maidservant, Bilhah, bore him Dan and Naphtali.
Rachel's sons were Benjamin and Joseph (who did not found a tribe, but whose sons founded the tribes of Manasseh and Ephraim).
MUSICAL IDOLATRY AT MOUNT SINAI
Just as Cain WAS OF the evil one and the Jews were sons of the Devil because they SPEAK ON THEIR OWN, Jude agrees that Satan's CHANGE AGENTS or ministers are NOT what they appear to be. Remember that Saddle Back Sam of the Purpose Driven Cult says to "infiltrate and divert." Make 'em think they are on a train to Chicago but switch that train and send it to Atlanta. Sure, you gotta love 'em and teach, teach, teach but they gotta know that they are going where we want them to go:
For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. Jude 4
I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. Jude 5
The musical apostasy at Mount Sinai was probably caused by Jethro who got Moses and Aaron to engage in a non-commanded animal sacrifice probably also were of the mixed multitude who seduced the Israelites to throw away Grace and get saddled with LEGALISM.
Ephraim Syrus On Our Lord notes that Sinai was a test. Here is how to infiltrate as stragglers and turn into the guide to replace the Pillar.
The MUSICAL IDOLATRY at Mount Sinai: God broke THE BOOK OF THE COVENANT and burdened Israel with THE BOOK OF THE LAW and conditionally sentenced them to captivity and Death.
> "The triumphal hymn of Moses had unquestionably a religious character about it; but the employment of music in religious services, though idolatrous, is more distinctly marked in the festivities which attended the erection of the golden calf." (Smith's Bible Dictionary, Music, p. 589).
> 19. But when Moses came down, he saw their heathenism reveling in the wide plain with drums and cymbals.Speedily, he put their madness to shame by means of the Levites and drawn swords.
So likewise here, our Lord concealed His knowledge for a little when the sinful woman approached Him, that the Pharisee might form into shape his thought, as his fathers had shaped the pernicious calf.
BOOK OF JUDE AND BOOK OF REVELATION
And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Jude 6
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Jude 7
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. Re.11:8
Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Jude 8
But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Jude 10
In Hebrew, the word Chalal (h2490) can be translated to "play the flute, pollute or prostitute." It can also means to PRUNE YOUR VINE or TAKE YOUR INHERITANCE. The word HALAL was a form of PRAISE meaning to 'MAKE YOURSELF VILE. This word, in turn, gives rise for HEYlel or LUCIFER. He attempted to Ascend to bring destruction to the Holy People. He corrupted people into being BEAST people and his PRIMARY TOOL was the CARNAL WEAPON or LIFELESS musical instruments.
These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Jude 12
Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. Jude 13
When Israel ROSE UP TO PLAY it was musical idolatry of Sinai. God saw this as their PRAYER and according to Stephen and others God "turned them over to worship the starry host." This included Chiun or Saturn whose Chaldee number is 666.
And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, Jude 14
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 15
These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having mens persons in admiration because of advantage. Jude 16
Other versions make it clear that the ENCHANTMENTS used by Satan was the use of instrumental music and other things. While not considered inspired, the books of Enoch are often quoted in the Bible. It is important to know that non-cannonical literature shows that secular writers of the time always associated instrumental music with ritual perversion and violating God's Word.
Adam and Eve CHAP. XX.
Ravishing music; strong drink loosed among the sons of Cain. They don colorful clothing.
The children of Seth look on with longing eyes. They revolt from wise counsel; they descend the mountain into the valley of iniquity. They can not ascend the mountain again.
3 And when he played on them,
Satan came into them, so that from among them were heard beautiful and sweet sounds, that ravished the heart.
People always believed that the gods or demons lived inside musical instruments. Modern musicians likewise believes that the SPIRIT guides them into ignoring the Word of God
4 Then he gathered companies upon companies to play on them;
and when they played, it pleased well the children of Cain, who inflamed themselves with sin among themselves, and burnt as with fire;
while Satan inflamed their hearts, one with another, and increased lust among them.
Paul defined the church as a synagogue or school of the Bible. It was not, like pagan religions which depend on music to attract contributors, intended to PLEASE the members or students. He wrote:
WE then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Rom 15:1
Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. (education or spirit building) Rom 15:2
For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches (taunt songs) of them that reproached thee fell on me. Rom 15:3
To please ourselves is the SPIRITUAL anxiety created by the religious rituals of Romans 14.
Aresko (g700) ar-es'-ko; prob. from 142 (through the idea of exciting emotion)
This word is derived from:
Airo (g142) ah'ee-ro; a prim. verb; to lift; by impl. to take up or away; figurative to raise the voice, keep in suspense (the mind); spec. to sail away (i.e. weigh anchor); by Heb. [comp. 5375] to expiate sin: - away with, bear (up), carry, lift up, loose, make to doubt, put away, remove, take (away, up).
The BURDEN laded by the Jewish clergy and which Jesus Christ removed is:
Phortizo (g5412) for-tid'-zo; from 5414; to load up (prop. as a vessel or animal), i.e. (fig.) to overburden with ceremony or spiritual anxiety: - lade, be heavy laden.
Jude picks the story of Enoch. Reading these old documents often quoted in the New Testament shows that SATAN taught the youth how to use PERFORMING ARTS and other deceptive devices to silence the LIVING WORD.
But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; Jude 17
How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. Jude 18
These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. Jude 19
John spoke about CIRCE or CHURCH as opposed to Synagogue of Christ. Mocking was always afflicting even Jesus with warrior- musicians and music.
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 18:14
And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. Rev 18:21
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 18:22
The craftsmen are like the mantikos, the soothsayer, divination or PROPHESYING induced by music or drugs. He is associated with Apollo or Abaddon or Apollon who arouses the locusts. The locusts were Apollo's MUSES or musicians. They had offended the MOTHER GODDESS and she had sent them underground until aroused. The grasshopper or locust was known as the musical performer who could put you to sleep: much like Circe.
Here is an Oannes or Ea figure who was "the patron god of music." Remember that Inanna got the father or senior male drunk and stole the ME or magical songs of the soothsayer. It somewhat represents Dagon the fish god. But the Pope represents him with the FISH- HEAD CROWN. The obverse side here represents the 8 known stars (including the sun and moon) which were personified in names such as Saturn whose Chaldee number is 666
CAINAs the Judas and the clergy were OF THE WICKED ONE, Cain is also said to be OF THAT WICKED ONE. Paul warned that Eve was wholly seduced in the same way a BRIDE is seduced before her WEDDING.
Cain's name means A MUSICAL NOTE. His descendants were the ones who used the ARTS AND CRAFTS including music to enslave others.
In parallel documents Jubal is Genun defined
Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brothers righteous. 1 Jn.3:12
Woe unto them for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. Jude 11
Cain's name means A MUSICAL NOTE. He is the father of the Lamech family and is incarnated in the Babylonian tablets as EA, the patron god of music. His daughter or granddaughter got him drunk and stole the powers of the ELDERSHIP, perversion, music and the keys to the GATES OF HELL.
Judas who WAS a devil
Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? John 6:70
He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve. John 6:71
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44
This Judas bag is from the Greek:
Glosokomon (g1101) gloce-sok'-om-on; from 1100 (speaking in tongues) and the base of 2889; prop. a case to keep mouthpieces of wind-instruments in, i.e. (by extens.) a casket or (spec.) purse: - bag.
It is made up of two words:
1. Glossa (from Strong's g1100) means "speaking in tongues" especially an unacquired one.
2. Kosmos (g2889) means the "orderly arrangement" or the "adorning" world. this is derived from (g2864 or Komizo which means "to carry off."
Kosmos (g2889) kos'-mos; prob. from the base of 2865; orderly arrangement, i.e. decoration; by impl. the world (in a wide or narrow sense, includ. its inhab., lit. or fig. [mor.]): - adorning, world.
"Yet, through all there was an overarching harmony. The Greek word cosmos which we translate by universe originally meant beauty and harmony."
The Pythagoreans discovered mathematical formulae for the musical harmonies. They believed in the harmony of the sounds produced by the movement of the stars. They were one of the DIVERSE groups in Romans 14. Paul thefore presented the church as SHOOL OF THE BIBLE to silence all of the diverse musicians.
"Therefore, they spoke of cosmic harmony of the spheres, each of which has a different sound, but all together creating a harmonious sound. If you delete the half-poetic, mythological elements from such ideas, then you can say that they had a universal, ecstatic interpretation of reality." (Tillich, Paul, A History of Christian Thought, Touchstone, p. 333).
The little box attached to the spotted flute case is the JUDAS BAG. Most of these ancient works of art show that the song and dance they tried to induce into Jesus were quite obscene.The church fathers utterly repudiates instruments because they were connected to warfare or the male and female prostitutes who performed for religious festivals and made their services available as the LAST ACT OF WORSHIP as promoted by the Vineyard.
"Then to all mankind He calls out, 'Let every spirit praise the Lord,' because He rules over every spirit He has made. In reality,man is an instrument for peace,
but these other things, if anyone concerns himself overmuch with them, become instruments of conflict, for inflame the passions.
The Etruscans, for example, use the trumpet for war; the Arcadians, the horn; the Sicels, the flute; the Cretans, the lyre; the Lacedemonians, the pipe; the Thracians, the bugle; the Egyptians, the drum; and the Arabs, the cymbal.
But as for us, we make use of one instrument alone:
only the Word of peace by whom we a homage to God,
no longer with ancient harp or trumpet or drum or flute which those trained for war employ." (Clement of Alexandria, 190AD The instructor, Fathers of the church, p. 130)
Rubel Shelly claims to have received NEW GLASSES through which he has a NEW VISION for the church.
What he is confessing--if it needed confessing--is that ACU is to be the propaganda wing of the new "hostile takeover" of churches through "infiltrating and diverting."
Jesus as the ROCK with the KEY and there is simply no way that you can find the SPIRIT TRUTH if it is sifted through human philosophy and the WRITER'S OWN PERSONAL AGENDA. Jesus stated an absolute truth.
Woe unto you, lawyers for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. Luke 11:52KJV
The LAW in this sense is the Greek:
Nomos (g3551) nom'-os; to parcel out, espec. food or grazing to animals...
Do you wonder why the DOCTORS OF THE LAW claim exclusive rights to train shock troops to go out and spread the NEW "peep-stone Joe's" glasses? Remember the SPIRIT in Isaiah 11 was not a little man living inside to make you hallucinate that you were getting a NEW VISION.
The doctors of the law deliberately HID the SPIRIT which is the Spirit of Knowledge in various forms.
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63
To repudiate the Spirit Words is "blasphemy against the Holy Spirit" whose personal name is Jesus or Joshua or Jehovah- Saved.
Those who claim that CHURCHES OF CHRIST who have never used music for 2,000 years are SECTARIANS and just being DOCTRINAIRE are just out of their minds. These minds have BEEN TRAINED TO THEIR HIGHEST LEVEL OF INCOMPETENCY. The MUSICAL PROPHESIERS saw INSANITY as the desired Goal: only when OUT OF THEMSELVES did the "gods" speak to them. Sure, spin around until you puke and the dizzy spell proves that the gods are in you.
Why not just use the Bible: it is free of charge (Isa 55).
