David.Young.Ephesians.5.and.Dionysus.SorceryThe Ekklesia a Church of Christ
Click Below for the Absolute Music-Sorcery connection.
Both the Ekklesia and Synagogue were Greek Civil assemblies. There was NO Assembly of Christ in Cenchrea so Phoebe was an official of the Greek Government. PAUL uses both synagogue and ekklesia words to define the COMING TOGETHER. We are not aware of any professional religionists who grasps that when Jesus said "I will built MY Ekklesia" He defined the PATTERN or WAY both inclusively and exclusively. That is because the Prophecies of the REST the Christ would bring is defined Inclusively and Exclusively in the PROPHETS. Because the Lord's Supper remembers that Jesus died to become the ONLY Teacher for the Church of Christ. That reduces the assembly to a ONE PIECE PATTERN. The Church as House excludes Priests or Levites, Scribes or Pharisees Jesus and Ezekiel called Hypocrites as Performance Preachers, singers or instrument players. The only two operative words for the ONCE EACH WEEK assembly is READ or SPEAK. There is no example of any godly assembly preaching, singing or playing instruments.
First: Jacob cursed the Levites and outlawed attending their assemblies or synagogues or entering into their Covenant.
After the Instrumental-Trinitarian-perverted PLAY at Mount Sinai, God turned the nation over to worship the starry host. The Jews brought Abaddon or Apollon with them from Egypt and neither sacrifice, priest or Temple was commanded when God saved them by Grace at Mount Sinai.
The Holy Convocation was held on the First Day of yearly festivals and later each Sabbath or REST day. No one in Scripture assembled to hold a Worship Service
The rulers were ignorant at the First Advent and will or are ignorant at this second advent when Apollon rises as the leader of the Locusts. Locusts were the prophesying Muses as Apollon's musical worship team.
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
THIS PATTERN NEVER CHANGED.
Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city
them that PREACH him, being READ in the synagogues every sabbath day.
That was just ONCE each week which is enough if every disciple reads together and memorizes a portion of Scripture. Then instead of vain imagination you can SPEAK TO YOURSELF recommended by Psychologists.
Luke 4:16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up:
and, as his CUSTOM was,
he went into the SYNAGOGUE
on the SABBATH day,
and stood up for to READ.
Then decently and in order He SAT DOWN for any discussion.
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 for the people, say on.
David Young represents the once-Christian universities who have been "transistioned" to the Musical Sect.
And in truth against these Heraclitus the EPHESIAN PROPHESIES as
"the night-walkers, the magi, the bacchanals, the Lenaean revellers, the initiated."
SORCERY is claiming that singing your own words can cause a SPIRIT to enter into you
Is. 1:3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib:
but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.
Isaiah 1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a SEED of evildoers,
children that are corrupters:
they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked [blasphemaverunt] the Holy One of Israel unto anger,
they are gone away backward.
Isaiah 1:8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
Isaiah 1: 9 Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
Is. 1:10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye RULERS of Sodom;
give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
Rev. 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city,The Spirit OF Christ contradicts. God said nothing about their mental attutude:
which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified
Is. 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD:
I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts;
and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

1.18.20 Added Notes to show the Evil and Ugly bedfellows of the PSALLO word as the FOUNDATION for infiltrating and confiscating your congregation. That is the meaning of Heresy or Sectarianism. The Persona of Rhetoric, Singing or Playing instruments is ANTI-Logos or Regulative Principle and that which alerts the masses of owners to FLEE.
There is nothing connected with MUSIC in the Assembly or School of Christ. The only permision is:
James 5:13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. or SING PSALLO.

Psallo means PLUCK something with your FINGERS but never with a PLEKTRON or PICK.
Psallo in the Latin Literature and used as AUTHORITY by the Instrumental Sect Almost
always speaks of Girls or pseudo-girls who, with Alexander The Great, had his

and had constantly followed him when he sang,
not from the compulsion to which the noblest had to yield,
but because he was the slave and chattel of profligacy and gluttony. [Religious Musicians are Parasites]

"carried away by pride and arrogance, would they believe themselves to be deities of the first rank, and fellows of the highest in his exaltation, because they had devised the arts of grammar, music, oratory, and geometry. For we do not see what is so wonderful in these arts, that because of their discovery the soul should be believed to be above the sun as well as all the stars, to surpass both in grandeur and essence the whole universe, of which these are parts. "
"For what else do these assert that they can either declare or teach, than that we may learn to know the rules and differences of nouns, the intervals in the sounds of different tones, that we may speak persualsively in lawsuits, that we may measure the confines of the earth? Now if the soul had brought these arts with it from the celestial regions, and it were impossible not to know them, all men would long before this be busied with them all over the earth... But see now how few musicians, logicians, and geometricians are there in the world! How few orators, poets, critics!..." (Arnibious, Ante-Nicene, VI, p. 441)
I am SO sorry but I don't think that history knows any exception:
CTESIAS.OF.CNIDUS: Why did you do this, you lowlife?" Parsondes now spoke without flattery,
"I thought I was more worthy to have this prize
since I am manlier and more useful to the king than you,
a man who keeps his face clean-shaven, wears eye-liner,
and anoints his skin with white make- up."
Then he answered, "Aren't you ashamed that such a great man as yourself, defeated by your belly and genetalia, has been conquered by the lesser one? I, however," he continued, "will soon make your skin softer and whiter than a woman's." He then swore an oath to Belos and Molis (this is how the Babylonians call Aphrodite).Ephesians 5 gives clergy the power to "infiltrate and divert" your peaceable congregation based almost solely on the "fore ordained" lust to impose performance music with or without instruments.
Nanaros then summoned the eunuch in charge of the songstresses and said to him,
"take this man and shave his entire body except for his head,
rub it with pumice stone, wash him twice a day and rinse him with egg-yolk,
and then put eye-liner on him and braid his hair like a woman's.
Teach him to sing, play the cithara, and pluck the lyre
so he can perform like a woman for me with the music-girls,
with whom he will share a lifestyle by having a soft body,
wearing the same clothes, and practicing the same skills."
After he spoke, the eunuch took Parsondes, shaved his entire body except for the head, taught him what he was asked, keeping him out of the sunlight, washing him twice per day, softening him up,
and keeping him in the same quarters with the women as his master had ordered.
Soon after, Parsondes was a white, smooth, and woman-like man,
who sang and played the cithara more beautifully than the music-girls with
whom he had performed and surpassed them in beauty as well
and no one who saw him perform at one of Nanaros' dinner-parties would realize that he was not a woman.
After this, he invited the angaros to join him for a drink and dinner and when the meal was served, the music-girls entered, 150 women in with Parsondes among them. Some women played the cithara or aule while others plucked the lyre; Parsondes was the most prominent of them in beauty and talent as he appeared to be a woman too. When they had their fill of dinner, Nanaros asked the angaros which of the girls he thought was the most attractive and talented and without much thought he replied, "that one" while pointing to Parsondes. Nanaros clapped his hands and laughed for a long time before saying, "How would you like spending the night with her?" to which the angaros readily assented. Nanaros then said, "However, I won't let you have her.", and the angaros relied, "Then why did you ask me?" Nanaros paused for a while and said, "That is Parsondes, the man for whom you have come."

OF EDUCATED PEOPLE:
Plat. Prot. 347c But if he does not mind, let us talk no more of poems and verses, but consider the points on which I questioned you at first, Protagoras, and on which I should be glad to reach, with your help, a conclusion.
For it seems to me that arguing about poetry is comparable to the wine-parties of common market-folk.
These people, owing to their inability to carry on a familiar conversation o
ver their wine by means of their own voices and discussions—
[347d] such is their lack of education—put a premium on flute-girls by hiring the extraneous voice of the flute at a high price, and carry on their intercourse by means of its utterance. But where the party consists of thorough gentlemen who have had a proper education,
you will see neither flute-girls nor dancing-girls nor harp-girls,
but only the company contenting themselves with their own conversation,
and none of these fooleries and frolics—each speaking and listening decently in his turn,

Jesus of Nazareth "appeared" to Paul and let him "hear his voice" before he was qualified to be taught and later guided into all truth. No pretend "apostle" [The Adcox Pattern] who was did not witness the resurrected Lord. Jesus Christ the Righteous is the only Comforter or Paraclete.

Is. 59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord;
My SPIRIT that is upon thee,

nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.
SORCERY is claiming that singing your own words can cause a SPIRIT to enter into you
Holy Spirit means that God put His WORDS into the MOUTH of A Moses, the Prophets and LASTLY the MAN Jesus of Nazareth a Prophet like Moses. The TESTIMONY of Jesus WAS the Spirit of Prophecy. Spirit produces WORDS but not to any pseudo-Apostle

However, He and they deny the role of Baptism which REQUESTS A holy spirit or A good conscience or consciousness which is given by Jesus in His STATE of Holy Spirit to be able to read the passage and KNOCK AND ASK to know the Divine Truth hidden in Parables from the clergy.

I will utter things which have been kept secret from the FOUNDATION of the WORLD.
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. Matthew 7:6

John Hyrcannus SILENCED all of thes awakening Psalms as pagan.
We even have a mention at a later date of a similar custom in connection with the cult in Jerusalem, where certain Levites, called me'oreim, 'AROUSERS,' sang (every morning?) this verse from-"Ps 44:23: "Awake, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever." The Talmud tells us that John Hyrcanus suppressed the practice because it recalled too readily a pagan custom." (Roland de Vaux, p. 247).
Because David as king was part of a cursed monarchy abandoned to worship the starry host then no one should ever fall into the trap that David was God's approved PATTERNISM for the MUSIC which was a MARK of that Sabazianism or worship of the Sun, Moon and planets as "wandering stars." Apollo was the SUN god and is Abaddon or Apollyon and the musicians (muses) in Revelation 18 are called sorcerers: so too is the prophesying under the Levites.

These he threatens with what will follow death, and predicts for them fire.
For what are regarded among men as mysteries, they celebrate sacrilegiously.
Law, then, and opinion, are nugatory. And the mysteries of the dragon are an imposture,
which celebrates religiously mysteries that are no mysteries at all,

Article: The Dionysian Background of Ephesians 5:18 Author: Cleon L. Rogers, Jr.
The festivals celebrated in honor of Dionysus varied from place to place, but it seems that one common feature was the emphasis on fertility and sex. The emphasis on the phallus (the male sex organ) in the so- called “Phallus Procession” along with such things as “the Phallus Song,” certainly indicate the lewd debauchery connected with this worship.30 The significance was evidently to please Bacchus so that he would grant fertility.
Another feature of the festivals was the wild, frenzied dancing and uncontrolled ravings,

 Oh, Phales, companion of the orgies of Bacchus, night reveller, god of adultery, friend of young men, these past six years I have not been able to invoke thee.
in connection with wine drinking and the music of flutes, cymbals, drums, or tambourines.31 Along with this was the mountain dancing of the women which sometimes took place in the dead of winter, and the devouring of the raw flesh of animals.32
The purpose of the intoxication BY WINE and also the chewing of ivy,
as well as the eating of raw animal flesh,
was to have DionysUS ENTER the body of the worshiper
and FILL him with “enthusiasm” or the SPIRIT of the god.
Dionysus was to possess and control such ones so that they were
united with him and partook of his strength, wisdom, and abilities.
This resulted in the person doing the will of the deity (either willingly or unwillingly)34
and having the ability to speak inspired prophecy,35 and was often thought to be
the source of artistic or poetical ability
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? Matthew 7:22

"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)
The Significance of the Dionysian Background
If the cultural background was Dionysian worship, then the two commands of Paul in Ephesians 5:18 and their context take on a new light. The several features to be considered are almost in themselves further support for a Dionysian background.
The Concept of ἀ σωτιά
“Be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess, but be ye filled with the Spirit” (Eph 5:18, AV). The wordtranslated “excess” basically means “without health,” or “incurable.”40 The word then refers to “one who by his manner of life, especially by dissipation destroys himself.”41
It is generally acknowledged that Dionysus was not originally a Greek god, but probably had his origins in Thracia, Lydia, or Phrygia.5 The name “Dionysus” appears to be the genitive of the word Zeus joined with the word nysos, (“son”) with the resultant meaning “son of Zeus.”6 He is also referred to by the Lydian name of “Bacchus.”7
It would have been hardly possible to have visited an ancient city and to have remained any length of time without seeing Dionysus and his ever- present companions, the Satyrs, Silens, and Maenads.
For a description of these male and female figures, half-clad, carrying musical instruments, wearing ivy wreaths, and having animal features, see Oxford Classical Dictionary , s.v. “Satyrs and Sileni” and “Maenads,” pp. 636, 956.
SOURCES--Clement of Alex. Protrept. 2, p. 18. Context:--Rites worthy of the night and of fire, and of the great-hearted, or rather of the idle-minded people of the Erechthidae, or even of the other Greeks, for whom there awaits after death what they do not hope (see frag. 122). Against whom, indeed, does Heraclitus of Ephesus prophesy? Against night-roamers, Magians, bacchanals, revelers in wine, the initiated. These he threatens with things after death and prophesies fire for them, for they celebrate sacrilegiously the things which are considered mysteries among men (= frag. 125).
There were also numerous priestly functionaries connected with the proceedings: The Hierophant, or High Priest, would preside over the most mysterious and solemn portions of the ritual. He alone had the right to enter the secret chamber of the Anaktoron, where the sacred Hiera, or cult objects, were housed.
The High Priestess of Demeter would share with the Hierophant the primary responsibility for presiding over the Mysteries. It is thought that she would assume the role of Demeter in a sacred drama reenacting the goddess's anguish and desperate search for Persephone. Most scholars also believe that the High Priestess would join the High Priest in performing an Hieros gamos, or sacred wedding of symbolic significance. The Hierophantides were two chief female assistants of the Hierophant who played a major role in the drama and initiation ceremonies. The Panageis Priestesses, also known as "bees," were celibate auxiliaries whose precise function remains unknown. Possibly they played a role in carrying the Hiera in the stately procession from Eleusis to Athens and back again. The Dadouchos, second male in rank after the Hierophant, was the torchbearer, who played an important role in the initiations. He alone at Eleusis had the authority to remove the stain of impurity from aspirants who had shed human blood. He and his female assistant, the Dadouchousa, were probably also responsible for the lighting effects in the Telesterion during the ceremonies. The Hieorokeryx was the official herald, whose stentorian voice would call the initiates to silence in order for the Mysteries to begin. Finally, the Priest at the Altar would preside over the animal sacrifices and other offerings to the two goddesses. The Eleusinian MysteriesIgnoring the warning of Paul the, as they say, "Use of Female Ministers" the PROMOTION of the Hieros gamos, or sacred wedding is promoted under the ploy of using the Pattern of the Song of solomon as the PATTERN:
David Young: instead, be filled with the Spirit BY speaking to one another
with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs,
Clement and everyone: For such are the begging priests of Cybele. Hence Antisthenes replies appropriately to their request for alms:
- I do not maintain the mother of the gods,
- For the gods maintain her."
"Again, the same writer of comedy, expressing his dissatisfaction with the common usages, tries to expose the impious arrogance of the prevailing error in the drama of the Priestess, sagely declaring: --
If a man drags the Deity
Whither he will by the sound of cymbals,
He that does this is greater than the Deity;
"But these are the instruments of audacity and means of living Invented by men. --(Clement, Exhortation to the Heathen, Ante-Nicene, II, p. 193).

The message of Scripture and historic testimony beginning with Clay Tablets is that musical sound, as a high pitch and a fixed cadence, INTENDS to Afflict and shut down the spiritual or rational mind.
There probably is no example of anyone subjecting a multitude to musical sounds who do not intend to fleece the widows and working class. God's Spirit in Isaiah 55 MARKS selling your own songs or sermons.
Ephesians 5:18-20 David M. Young Translation.
And don't get drunk on alcohol, which leads to decadence;
instead, be filled with the Spirit BY speaking to one another

always giving thanks to God the Father for everything,
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
David Young represents the prophesied end-time musical outbreak defined by Jude. A witch or sorcerer does not 'boil frog's eyes" they "BOIL FROGS" by boasting of gradualism to infiltrate and divert all Bible-based churches and "turn them into a theater for holy entertainment." Scripture and history says that "Koma is induced by musical instruments." Praise teams are "organic" musical instruments.
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, and our Lord Jesus Christ
SPIRIT has never and can never define a GOD: God IS Spirit in contrast to having FLESH AND BONES. Spirit is a STATE or Mind or Mental disposition. SPIRIT means that "God puts His WORD into the MOUTH of A Moses, the Prophets and LASTLY into the mouth of Jesus of Nazareth. Spirits are demons or devil:
1 Cor. 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written,
The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
1 Corinthians 10.7 mēde eidōlolatrai ginesthe, kathōs tines autōn: hōsper gegraptai “Ekathisen ho laos phagein kai pein, kai anestēsan paizein.”
Barnes etc And rose up to play - (paizein). The Hebrew word used in Exodus 32:6 (tsaachaq) means "to laugh, to sport, to jest, to mock, to insult" Genesis 21:9; and then to engage in dances accompanied with music, in honor of an idol. This was often practiced, as the worship of idols was celebrated with songs and dances. This is particularly affirmed of this instance of idol worship Exodus 32:19; and this was common among ancient idolaters; and this mode of worship was even adopted by David before the ark of the Lord; 2 Samuel 6:5; 1 Chronicles 13:8; 1 Chronicles 15:29. All that the word "to play" here necessarily implies is, that of choral songs and dances, accompanied with revelry in honor of the idol.

SPEAKING Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual songs from the BOOK of Psalms. The Assembly was a Reading Assembly. A portion of Scripture was read ONCE each week until the whole book was read especially the Prophets.

Be back shortly
There is no command, example or remote hint that anyone gathered as an Ecclesia of Christ and sang in a tuneful sense without or without musical instruments for many centuries.
The use of mechanical devices to sell the sounds as the SPIRIT entering into them was always bonded with refusing to SPEAK the Word of God through Christ OR of BURNING.
