FIRST: No one in Scripture is said to WORSHIP by speaking singing, playing instruments, acting or passing the plate. When David is said to WORSHIP he never played his harp. Reverence and Godly Fear is still required but Jesus defined worship IN THE SPIRIT and devoted to THE WORD.

and come again to you.
Gen. 24:26 And the
man bowed down his head,
and worshipped the LORD.
Matt. 26:36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane,
and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here,
while I go and pray yonder
Matt. 26:39 And he went a little further,
and fell on his face,
saying, O my Father, if it be possible,
let this cup pass from me: nevertheless
not as I will, but as thou wilt.

SAME AS: g4352. proskuneo, pros-koo-neh´-o; from 4314 and a probable derivative of 2965 (meaning to kiss, like a dog licking his master’s hand); to fawn or crouch to, i.e. (literally or figuratively) prostrate oneself in homage (do reverence to, adore): — worship.
Matt. 6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Matt. 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
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.
Rev. 22:8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen,
I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.

That excludes cunning craftsmen or Sophists: rhetoricians, singers, instrument players who were professionals and noted as being gender-conflicted.
Phil. 3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
Phil. 3:3 For we are the circumcision,
which worship God IN THE spirit,
and rejoice in Christ Jesus,
and have no confidence in the flesh.
Therefore, it is a mistake to call anything in the assembly WORSHIP. If you are being extorted to procure a Musical Worship Minister then shame on you. The only PATTERN for your assembly is that of Apollo, Apollyon. He is the second BEAST, his number is 666, he is the leader of the Muses or His Musical Worship Team. They are called SORCERERS and will be cast alive into the lakke of fire.
SECOND. Apollo or Apollyon is the LEADER of the LOCUSTS which are the MUSES.
Apollo or Apollyon worship was brought by the Hebrews as an ABOMINATION from Egypt. In various forms of the Sun God he is defined as a Beast with the number 666 in the Book of Revelation.
Jude 16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having mens persons in admiration because of advantage.

The Temple of Apollo Patroos (meaning "from the fathers") is a small ruined temple of Ionic order built in 340–320 BCE. It is 10 m wide and 16.5 m long, and is located north-west of the Ancient Agora of Athens, near the Stoa of Zeus.
"But in my time it was devoted to the worship of Dionysus. This Dionysus they call Melpomenus (Minstrel), on the same principle as they call Apollo Musegetes (Leader of the Muses). Here there are images of Athena Paeonia (Healer), of Zeus, of Mnemosyne (Memory) and of the Muses, an Apollo, the votive offering and work of Eubulides, and Acratus, a daemon attendant upon Apollo; it is only a face of him worked into the wall.
[1.3.4] Here is a picture of the exploit, near Mantinea, of the Athenians who were sent to help the Lacedaemonians.1 Xenophon among others has written a history of the whole war--the taking of the Cadmea, the defeat of the Lacedaemonians at Leuctra, how the Boeotians invaded the Peloponnesus,and the contingent sent to the Lacedacmonians from the Athenians. In the picture is a cavalry battle, in which the most famous men are, among the Athenians, Grylus the son of Xenophon, and in the Boeotian cavalry, Epaminondas the Theban. These pictures were painted for the Athenians by Euphranor, and he also wrought the Apollo surnamed Patrous (Paternal) in the temple hard by. And in front of the temple is one Apollo made by Leochares; the other Apollo, called Averter of evil, was made by Calamis. They say that the god received this name because by an oracle from Delphi he stayed the pestilence which afflicted the Athenians at the time of the Peloponnesian War.2

THE MEANING OF THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM
Matt. 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father:
and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father;
neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son,
and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
Matt. 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matt. 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and LEARN OF ME;
for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find REST unto your souls.
Matt. 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

SORRY, BUT THERE ARE MANY DIRECT COMMANDS
Acts 17:21 (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else,
but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)
Acts 17:22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said,
Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
1169. deilos, di-los´; from deos (dread); timid, i.e. (by implication) faithless: — fearful.
1142 daimon, dah´-ee-mown; from daio (to distribute fortunes); a dæmon or supernatural spirit (of a bad nature): — devil.
sŭperstĭtĭōsus soothsaying, prophetic, [MIRIAM AND LEVITES]Acts 17:23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription,
TO THE UNKNOWN GOD [including Apollyon-Abaddon].
Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein,
seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth,
dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
THE PATTERN. When the Babylonian Mother of Harlots Church is resurrected her PRIESTHOOD plans to lie about The Law of Giving to build a huge COMPLEX. You should break FREE because there is no such LAW and they will finally confess their AGENDA and take over your "temple" so they can worship THEIR god who needs a house
When the train and hire Musical Worship Ministers with dirty money, we should understand that they had no choice but to worship the goddesses and gods which Revelation establishes as the FORE ORDAINED (Jude) PATTERN.
They are able to collect the MASSES but Jesus came from a tiny remnant: The WAY that is called a SECT. Only a small number seek and find the right PATH.
The unleashing of the Musical Worship Team again has not Scriptural Basis, since music is never called worship, except that defined in Revelation 18. Craftsman or Techne includes all religious professions which live off the people and are defined by the Greek PARASITE.
The Worship Team trains and rehearses how to PERFORM Musical Worship. They claim that if you watch and listen to them then you, too, will be able to worship. They claim to move you into the presence of God. In fact, they bring most people to TEARS.
Paul wants both male and female to be SILENT so that we can "be SAFE and come to a knowledge of the Truth" or the Word. Both males who make up their own sermons and the females who teach over, claim and want to be paid to be intercessors or mediators.
1Tim. 2:5 FOR there is ONE GODJESUS GETS TO MEDIATE ONLY WHEN THE WORD IS READ AND DISCUSSED.
and one mediator between God and men,
the MAN Christ Jesus;
Acts 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men
for to dwell on all the face of the earth,
and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
Acts 17:27 THAT they should SEEK the Lord,
if haply they might feel after him, and find him,
though he be not far from every one of us:
Acts 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being;
as certain also of your own poets have said,
For we are also his offspring
I WILL ADD ABSOLUTE PROOF THAT THE GOOD NEWS OR THE GOSPEL IS: Apollyon of all instrumental or music-centered "worship" is prophesied and fulfilled in many or most Bible-Based religious Groups.
Apollyon (Abaddon) is the Washer or Healer demonstrated by performance worship music claiming to bring God DOWN as they are lifted UP.
Acts 17:25 Neither is WORSHIPPED with MEN'S HANDS hands,
as though he NEEDED any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
