Christian Worship Depicted In Revelation
CALLING DOWN GOD'S HOLY FIRE. God is Spirit and we worship God IN THE SPIRIT as a place compared to IN THE FLESH or in houses built by human hands. Paul said that they worshipped IN THE SPIRIT and not IN THE FLESH which was to exclude what he calls dogs and the concision. Jesus said that the kingdom does not come with OBSERVATIONS like those being imposed based on the book of Revelation. Observations are WORSHIP SERVICES. A disciple commanded to learn what Christ taught to be observed in the Prophets and Apostles does not attend "worship services" intending to perform things like 'praise services' intended to help God and prevent Him from failing--again.
THE MARK OF THE BEAST: Absolute Biblical Definition of the BEAST. Those who are led by the BEAST by connecting musical stimulation of the pleasure centers with SPIRITUAL or MENTAL worship or giving heed to the Word of God have fallen and cannot get back up. Worship is GIVING HEED to the Word of God. Music from mystery means "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."
Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him:
for he that cometh to God
must believe that he is,
and that he is a rewarder
of them that diligently seek him.
The Qahal, synagogue, ekklesia or Church of Christ (the Rock) was exclusively to hear and read the Word of God as the Christ-commanded place to give attendance.
John Calvin called for A Restoration of the Church of Christ and defined the only spiritual assembly God commanded.
INCLUSIVE of Rest, Reading and Rehearsing the Word of God.
EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrumental rejoicing including elevated forms of speech
The church or Snagogue was a SAFE HOUSE to quarantine the godly people from the curse of the sacrificial system
Acts 15:21 For Moses
of old time
hath in every city
them that preach him,
being read in the synagogues
every sabbath day.
In contrast to Stone, the Campbells understood the church in the wilderness and the ekklesia-synagogue defined:
CHURCH is A School of Christ
WORSHIP is Reading and Musing the Word
The Declaration and Address was used to assure that each disciple became a scholar on their own right without room for clergy.
Paul practiced, defined and commanded the one-piece-pattern to Timothy.
1Tim. 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to [public] reading,
to exhortation [comfort], to doctrine.
1Tim. 4:14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee,
which was given thee by prophecy, [teaching]
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.
G3191 meletaō [NOT MELOS] mel-et-ah'-o From a presumed derivative of G3199 ; to take care of, that is, (by implication) revolve in the mind:--imagine, (pre-) meditate.
At no time or place did PSALLO have a musical content: it means to pluck or smite with your fingers and never with a plectrum. That excludes by command wind or percussion instruments or a guitar pick. Grace in Colossians 3:16 means the divine influence on our heart.
G3199 melō mel'-o A primary verb; to be of interest to, that is, to concern (only third person singular present indicative used impersonally it matters):--(take) care.
THE COSMIC WORSHIP IN REVELATION IS TO WARN YOU AGAINST COSMIC OR WORSHIP OF THE STARRY HOST.
NACC SAYS: Also on Wednesday morning, Randy Harris of Abilene Christian University will usher us into heaven’s throne room in Revelation 4-5.
Because Jesus died to be the only mediator between man an God He is God's agent. Will Randy Harriss who accepts Jesus but rejects Christianity (what Jesus commanded to be taught) really STAND IN THE HOLY PLACE AND CLAIM TO BE GOD?
As we enter this COSMIC corporate worship service,
we will suck in our breath,
shield our eyes and drop to our knees before a God so glorious
we can only describe Him with thunder, lightning, rainbows and jewels.
He is the reason we will be victorious.
FIRST FALL FROM GRACE
"Glueck explained the associations of the three major meanings of nachash as follows: The production of copper was seen in the Bronze Age as conferring magical powers on the smelter. When the smelted copper, or molten brass or bronze, was poured out into the sand, it would form a long, sinuous ingot of metal—the brazen snake or serpent that became the symbol of his magic.
5175. nachash, naw-khawsh´; from 5172; a snake (from its hiss):—serpent.
5153. nachuwsh, naw-khoosh´; apparently passive participle of 5172 (perhaps in the sense of ringing,
i.e. bell-metal; or from the red color of the throat of a serpent (5175, as denominative) when hissing);
coppery, i.e. (figuratively) hard:—of brass
Gen. 3:14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this,
thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field;
upon thy belly [emotions] shalt thou go,
and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman,
and between thy seed and her seed;
it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
PROPHECY OF THE PATTERN SOUGHT BY COSMIC WORSHIP AT NACC
Rick Atchley:Because witches cannot put a magic spell on you, the use of music is defined by musical instruments and most musical terms as enchantment, soothsaying (Miriam, Levites) or Sorcery (the self-preachers, singers and instrument players in Revelation 18 who WILL be cast alive into the Lake of Fire.
Well, we discipled the children of those progressive churches
for a whole generation to grow past us Boomers.
They never heard the sermons we heard.
They never heard the rationale for a cappella music.
We sent them to youth rallies and Church of Christ events
with some of the finest Christian bands in the world.
We discipled our children to leave our Movement!
When Nahash (the name must be an Israelite caricature: it means “snake”), the king of the Ammonites, agreed to spare the Israelites of Jabesh-Gilead only if the Israelites allowed Nahash to gouge out the right eye of every man by the soon-to-be king of the Israelites,
King Nachash was no snake. He was, perhaps, a smelter of copper (or an importer of copper from the lands to the south of Ammon), perhaps a soothsayer or diviner, perhaps simply a smart man.
SO DON'T TRY TO DO COSMIC WORSHIP
"It is remarkable that the verb nachash 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. 1Kings 20:33. 2Kings 17:17; 21:6. 2Chron. 33:6. So also is the noun used in Num. 23:23; 24:1."
It was because of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai that God turned israel--especially the tribe of Levi--over to worship the starry host. This was COSMIC worship in the not-commanded Civil-Military-Clergy complex Christ in the Spirit called robbers and parasites. A PARASITE in Greek etal sacrificial system were called PARASITES and when they prophesied with instruments they are defined as soothsayers, sorcerers or witches. That is why BURNING is connected to those who use music which means "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter.
JESUS CHRIST AS THE HOLY SPIRIT TEACHER DEFINES THE END-TIME BABYLON MOTHER OF HARLOTS in Revelation 17. She uses what John calls "lusted after fruits" (same as in Amos 8) as self-speakers, singers and instrument players. John calls the sorcerers and says that they will have their place by being CAST ALIVE into the Lake of Fire. The fatal MARK is adding to or subtracting from the message of Revelation. Remember that Jesus said that truth had been hidden from the clery people in parables from the foundaton of the world. These corrupt the Word or "sell learning at wholesale" which word also defines adulterers.
IT IS FITTING THAT ALL OF THE MARKS OF REVELATION ARE TO DEFINE ANCIENT AND MODERN RITUALISTIC WORSHIP INCLUDING RHETORICIANS, SINGERS AND INSTRUMENT PLAYERS and all ancient Greek and Latin musical words and names of instrument understand that they are used for ENCHANTMENT or SORCERY.
The Kingdom of God is within US and does not come with observation. That means the kingdom DOES NOT come to such religious observationsWARNING AGAINST FALLING INTO COSMIC WORSHIP

THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST IN ISAIAH 29 DEFINING THE LAST WARNING SIGNS.
Saying, Go unto this people, and say,
Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand;
and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive: Acts 28:26
For the heart of this people is waxed gross,
and their ears are dull of hearing,
and their eyes have they closed;
lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears,
and understand with their heart,
and should be converted,
and I should heal them. Acts 28:27
Isa 29:4 And thou shalt be brought down,
and shalt speak out of the ground,
........... and thy speech shall be low out of the dust,
and thy voice shall be,
........... as of one that hath a familiar spirit,
........... out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.
WHAT IS A WISE MAN FROM WHOM GOD HIDES HIMSELF?
Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust,
........... and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away:
........... yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly. Isa 29:5
Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts [Israel worshipped the HOST]
........... with thunder, and with earthquake,
........... and great noise, with storm and tempest,
........... and the flame of devouring fire. Isa 29:6
Wherefore the Lord said,
........... Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth,
........... and with their lips do honour me,
........... but have removed their heart far from me,
........... and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Isa 29:13
The Ezekiel 26-33 quotation Jesus used to describe Scribes and PharisseesIsaiah 29:14 Therefore, behold,
I will put an end to your noisy songs, and the music [sound] of your harps will be heard no more. Ezek 26:13
"And he shall destroy the multitude of thy musicians, and the sound of thy psalteries shall be heard no more." Ezek. 26:13 LXX
Ezekiel 33:30 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the LORD.
Ezekiel 33:31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh,
and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words,
but they will not do them:
for with their mouth they shew much love,
but their heart goeth after their covetousness.
Ezekiel 33:32 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song
of one that hath a pleasant voice,
and can play well on an instrument:
for they hear thy words, but they do them not.
Ezekiel 33:33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,)
then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.
I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people,
even a marvellous work and a wonder:
for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,
and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

Paul says there will be no WISE people or Scribes or Disputers in the Kingdom of God. There will be no towers or podiums: there will be no collectors of shekals.

THE WARNING SIGNS BY CHRIST IN JEREMIAH 23
Jeremiah 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you:
they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart,
and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
H5012 nâbâ’ that is, speak (or sing) by inspiration (in prediction or simple discourse):
Prŏphēta and prŏphētes , ae, m., = prophētēs,Jeremiah 23:27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams
I. a foreteller, soothsayer, prophet (post-class.; cf. “vates):
which they tell every man to his neighbour,
as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.
Jeremiah 23:32 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. ACTS 7
If you missed the story of Stephen who was prophet literate and never asked what he meant then shame on your for deliberately trying to deceive people to force "unity" meaning they affirm or confirm to what recorded history calls musical enchantment or sorcery (Miriam; Revelation 18 and the Greek literature.)
THE WARNING SIGNS BY CHRIST IN EZEKIEL 26 and Fulfillment
THE PROPHETIC TYPES MADE MORE CERTAIN BY JESUS OF NAZARETH
The Prototype of Babylon-Tyre Israel. Sodom not spiritual Israel. Jesus referenced Isaiah and Ezekiel to define the national Worship of the Starry Host--Abaddon The End-Time Fulfillment
For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will bring upon Tyrus Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the north, with horses, and with chariots, and with horsemen, and companies, and much people. Ezek 26:7
They will plunder your wealth and
loot your merchandise;
they will break down your walls
and demolish your fine houses
and throw your stones, TIMBER and rubble into the sea. Ezek 26:12
Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses,
and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying,
Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord. Eze 33:30
Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
I will put an end to your noisy songs, and the music [sound] of your harps will be heard no more. Ezek 26:13
The LXX is more forceful in showing that both the music and the musicians would be silenced---
"And he shall destroy the multitude of thy musicians, and the sound of thy psalteries shall be heard no more." Ezek. 26:13 LXX
My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to listen to your words,
but they do not put them into practice.
With their mouths they express devotion (Lord, Lord as amorousness - inordinate love),
but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain (commerce or trade or attendance). Eze 33:31
Rev 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
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
I will make thee a terror, and thou shalt be no more:
though thou be sought for,
yet shalt thou never be found again, saith the Lord God. Ezek 26:2
When all this comes true--
and it surely will--
then they will know that a prophet has been among them." Eze 33:33
Revelation 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
Revelation 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone

Jewish Encyclopedia Chiun Sakkut" and "Kaiwan" occur together in Rawlinson, "Inscriptions of Western Asia," iv. pl. 52, col. 4, line 9, in a list of epithets (compare Zimmern, "Beitr. zur Kenntniss der Babylonischen Religion," i. 10). Probably they were introduced together here through Babylonian influence in a verse regarded by Wellhausen ("Kleine Propheten," ad loc.) and Nowack, on the basis of II Kings xvii. 30, as a gloss. Budde ("Religion of Israel to the Exile," pp. 67 et seq.) regards the verse as genuine, and the Babylonian influence as potent in the wilderness.
Of course they are the same in origin. Christians do the same when they carry over pagan expressions such as Christmas, Easter, trinity, etc. Both Christians and Jews still worship in the names derived from ancient idols - baal-gad
Moloch, Chiun and Remphan are all names for the star god, Saturn, whose symbol is a six pointed star formed by two triangles.  Saturn was the supreme god of the Chaldeans.
Molech is the Ammonite name; Chiun, the Arabic and Persian name, written also Chevan. In an Arabic lexicon Chiun means "austere"; so astrologers represented Saturn as a planet baleful in his influence. Hence the Phoenicians offered human sacrifices to him, children especially; so idolatrous Israel also. Rimmon was the Syrian name (2Ki 5:18); pronounced as Remvan, or "Remphan," just as Chiun was also Chevan. Molech had the form of a king; Chevan, or Chiun, of a star [GROTIUS]. Remphan was the Egyptian name for Saturn: hence the Septuagint translator of Amos gave the Egyptian name for the Hebrew, being an Egyptian. [HODIUS II, De Bibliorum Textibus Originalibus. 4.115].

WHAT JOHN HEARD IN THE SPIRIT
WHAT THE BABYLON HARLOT IS DOING INSTEAD OF PREACHING
AFTER THE INSTRUMENTS AS SORCERY ARE SILENCED
- SOLEMN WARNING! No one PLAYS harps in heaven.
And I heard a sound from heaven
- like the roar of rushing waters and
- like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was
- like that of harpists playing their harps. Re 14:2NIV
Disturbing, creating fear: the meaning of Apollo or Phoebus.
Rev 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. [seed pickers]
Rev 19: 1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: 2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
And they sung [ode=no tune] as it were a new song [ode] before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. Rev 14:3
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

- PLEASE NOTE: The HARP SOUNDS are Gone.
And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. Rev 14:5

And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven,REVELATION 17 THE LADY OF THE BEASTS
having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth,
and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Rev 14:6
Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him;
for the hour of his judgment is come:
and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea,
and the fountains of waters. Rev 14:7
The Jews and those who use the Levites as their pattern worship the CREATED things and not the CREATOR. Worsip is IN the place of the sanctified spirit and cannot be seen, seard, smelled or felt in your pleasure centers.
It is absolutely certain that if you give attendance to the instrumentalists, the instruments and THEIR words you CANNOT be giving attention to Christ through His Word--the Spirit OF truth.And there followed another angel, saying,
Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city,
because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
The people in John's area would have understood the message intended to blind the merchants.
Revelation 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
Revelation 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness:
and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast,
full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
The Goddess as Lady of Beasts was known to the people of Sumer, Crete, and the Indus Valley (India). Her name is largely unknown because worship of her predated writing. She was also known as the Cosmic Creatrix, the creative, fertile, life-giving force. Her special animals were held sacred as manifestations of the deity herself. She is depicted here pregnant, surrounded by pregnant animals, which speaks of her as a powerful fertility figure. She usually appears enthroned with a lion at her side indicating sovereignty and strength.
Genesis 3:20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.Initially a Hunter Goddess and Lady of the Beasts of Kolchis named Aeaea 'ululation,' she became the funerary Goddess of the island known by her name. Kalypso 'concealer,' Argeia 'bright,' and often Medea 'wise one' who was sometimes called her neice instead. Klymene's daughters were the keepers of golden horned cattle in the lands of the Dead, the Heliades or Merope 'eloquent' or 'bee eater,' Helia 'sun,' Phoebe 'bright,' Aetheria 'heavenly one,' Dioxippe 'divine mare,' Lampetia 'beaming one,' Koronis 'crow or raven,' Aegile 'bright,' Lamethusa 'light being,' Phatusa 'bright being,' and Elektryone 'beaming on
Kirke Daughter of the Sun Goddess Perse or Perseis the 'lightbearer' or 'destroyer' who became the underworld Goddess Persephone 'she who shines for all or destroyer of all,' she also had an aunt, Klymene 'famous strength or famous Moon,' and several sisters. Kirke's sisters included Pasiphae 'wide shiner' owner of the Moon hare, Kalypso 'concealer,' Argeia 'bright,' and often Medea 'wise one' who was sometimes called her niece instead. Klymene's daughters were the keepers of golden horned cattle in the lands of the Dead
Revelation 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour,Revelation 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written,
and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls,
having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Ovid: Ex Ponto Book EI.I:37-80 To Brutus: His PrayerREVELATION 18 DEFINES THE "FRUITS" WORKING FOR THE BABYLONIAN MOTHER OF HARLOTS
Is there anyone brave enough to drive from his threshold
one who shakes Isis’s [Mount Sinai and Miriam] rattling sistrum of Pharos in his hand?
When the flute-player, before Cybele, Mother of the gods,
sounds the curved horn, who grudges him a few coppers as alms?
No such thing, we know, is done at Diana’s command,
yet her prophet too still gains the means to live.
The power of the divine being itself stirs our hearts:
there’s nothing shameful in being caught by credulity.
Behold, instead of the sistrum or Phrygian boxwood pipe,
I come bearing the sacred names of the Julian race.
I celebrate, I prophesy. Make way for the bearer of holy symbols!
Rev. 18:21 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.REVELATION 19: THE DESTINY OF THE SORCERERS (speakers, singers, instrument players)

Rev. 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee;
and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee:

Vitr. 1.1 15. It appears, then, that Pytheos made a mistake by not observing that the arts are each composed of two things, the actual and the theory of it. One of these, the doing of the work, is proper to men trained in the individual subject, while the other, the theory, is common to all scholars: for example, to physicians and musicians the rhythmical beat of the pulse and its metrical movement. But if there is a wound to be healed or a sick man to be saved from danger, the musician will not call, for the business will be appropriate to the physician. So in the case of a musical instrument, not the physician but the musician will be the man to tune it so that the ears may find their due pleasure in its strains.

18 - Whether there came a whistling wind, or a melodious sound of birds in wide -
spreading branches, or the rhythm of violently rushing water,
19 - or the harsh crash of rocks hurled down,
or the unseen running of leaping animals, or the sound of the most savage roaring beasts,
or an echo thrown back from a hollow of the mountains, it paralyzed them with terror.
20 - For the whole world was illumined with brilliant light, and was engaged in unhindered work,
21 - while over those men alone heavy night was spread, an image of the darkness that was destined to receive them; but still heavier than darkness were they to themselves.
19:13 - The punishments did not come upon the sinners
without prior signs in the violence of thunder, [Rev 14]
for they justly suffered because of their wicked acts;
for they practiced a more bitter hatred of strangers.
14 - Others had refused to receive strangers when they came to them,
but these made slaves of guests who were their benefactors.
15 - And not only so, but punishment of some sort will come upon the former for their hostile reception of the aliens;
16 - but the latter,
after receiving them with festal celebrations,
afflicted with terrible sufferings those who had already shared the same rights.
17 - They were stricken also with loss of sight - - just as were those at the door of the righteous man - -18 - For the elements changed places with one another,
when, surrounded by yawning darkness, each tried to find the way through his own door.
as on a harp the notes vary the nature of the rhythm,
while each note remains the same.
This may be clearly inferred from the sight of what took place.
The Spirit OF Christ warned about SELF-SPEAKERS who reject CHRISTIANITY but accept only JESUS.
