David Young Instrumental Music in Worship

Romans 12

Revised Daily 11.30.13 The universal pattern with perhaps Max Lucado along with the Purpose Driven Church (cult) has been to set up or confiscate SISTER churches which will be governed by the MOTHER Church.  A key function is to divert money from Churches of Christ which have, in the words of the Christian Standard and the NACC been "transistioned" into the use of what they call Instrumental Music in Worship.  However, God set up a rat trap by giving all of the ANTI-GOD or ANTI-LOGOS (the Regulative Principle) as purpose driven to add music which from mystery means "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."

Worship is NOT anything you can do in Houses built by human hands or by the WORKS of human hands. The God-Abandoned tribe of Levi used the Jacob-cursed Levites to carry out their abandonment to worship the starry host--Acts 7 if you have never read the Old Testament proves the point by performing the ANTI-type to the Prophetic Type at Mount Sinai and Mount Sinai.  The only "worship" concept in the Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness, practiced and commanded by Jesus, practiced and commanded by Paul and practiced and taught by the historic Church of Christ until Constantine began to PAY unwashed priests was to REST, Read and Rehearse the Word of God.  Christ EXCLUDED "vocal or instrumental rejoicing" including the rhetorician, singers, players, clappers or men wearing female garments--like David who got Shocked and Awed into stripping off the Ephod (a vulva) and going naked with the camp following slaves.  Men Paul and Peter claim that the Gift of Christ was godly elders who would shut down the Sophists or Cunning Craftsmen so that the commanded pattern of "using one mind and one mouth" to speak "that which is written for our learning" or "Scripture for our comfort and doctrine."

David Young has always rebuked preachers who continue to teach what Scripture teaches from Genesis to Revelation. A musical instrument is defined as a "machine for doing hard work, mostly in making war and in creating the shock and awe of pagan religious spectacles." Because it presumes to AID the apparently-unlearned Jesus by the use of rhetoric, singing, playing, clapping, acting and other hypocritic arts and crafts, the Bible and recorded history calls it soothingsaying (Miriam and the Levites) or Sorcery (speakers, singers, instrument players and all teknokrats or "ministry team."  John warns about the gender in Revelation 18 and Christ in Amos 8. In Amos the clergy stole from the poor to perform rituals of "wine, women and instrumental witchcraft." God said "I will not pass by again" and so the songs in the Holy Place be came Howling as the Word-starved people were led into the captivity and death God had promised at Mount Sinai."  The Sorcerers in Revelation will be "Cast alive into the Lake of fire."  Christ in Isaiah 33 warns that the SOUNDS or marks of God driving His enemies into "hell" would be the same wind, string and percussion Lucifer brought into the Garden of Eden as the "singing and harp-playing prostitute."

David Young God commanded Instrumental Music: This is not a set of rituals but Psalm 33 invites us to a rich EXPERIENCE with God "Praise God with the harp, shout for joy, INVITATION to give everything I have."

David missed that the Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned levites had been turned over to worship the starry host including Abaddon or Apollyon.
God gave them kings in His anger to carry out the captivity and death sentence imposed BECAUSE of instrumental idolatry at Mount Sinai.
God then outlawed for the godly "vocal or instrumental rejoicing or shouting." That included anyone speaking on their own which Jesus said was to mark the sons of the devil.
David's foundation had been abandoned to worship like the Canaanite-Babylonians because that is where the musical idolaters were going beyond redemption.
Christ in Isaiah 8 says that if people make noise and do not speak the WORD THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.
If David's making himself vile (halal) is the pattern, this is the mark of the take over by women and BOYS (Isaiah 3) and this is what they do in a virtual sense to make their attack on Christ and His Word.

Religious musicians were called PARASITES and even the Levites performed the women's role.

See the King (pastor) Set over those as Alpha Male
David's Choir Robe.

The POPE wears one and steeples and church doors have always been the vulva and the building the womb. Pulpits which do not exist according to 1 Corinthians 1 except to hold up the Bible are plallic symbols. At Mount Sinai defined by Romans 1.

Horus was the posthumous son and heir of the god Osiris, the primordial king and giver of life. He was invited by his uncle, Seth, to spend a day. Seth’s real motive was not to show him hospitality but to disqualify him from inheriting his father’s royal power. To this end, while Horus slept Seth committed an act of sodomy upon him. Since sodomy was inflicted as a punishment on a defeated enemy and was a symbol of domination, Seth could then claim that he had conquered Horus and demand the kingship in his place.

Historically, the rape of males was more widely recognized in ancient times. Several of the legends in Greek mythology involved abductions and sexual assaults of males by other males or gods. The rape of a defeated male enemy was considered the special right of the victorious soldier in some societies and was a signal of the totality of the defeat.

2 Sam 6:20 Then David returned to bless his household.
............ And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David,
............ and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day,
............ who uncovered himself to day
............ in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants,
............ as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself

-2 Samuel6.20] reversusque est et David ut benediceret domui suae et egressa Michol filia Saul in occursum David ait quam gloriosus fuit hodie rex Israhel discoperiens se ante ancillas servorum suorum et nudatus est quasi si nudetur unus de scurris

-Nūdo , āvi, ātum, 1, v. a. nudus, I. to make naked or bare; to strip, bare, lay bare, expose to view, uncover (syn.: exuo, detego, revelo).

1  In milit. lang., to leave uncovered, leave exposed or defenceless, to expose a place to the enemy
2. Pregn., to strip, spoil, plunder: “spoliavit nudavitque omnia,Cic. Verr. 1, 5, 14
-Scurra , ae, m.an elegant, town-bred man; a fine gentleman, gallant, dandy. Also of an elegant debauchee,   1. A city buffoon, droll, jester (usually in the suite of wealthy persons, and accordingly a kind of parasite; syn.: -Of the clown in a pantomime, Juv. 13, sannio, parasitus) Same as -Auloedus one who sings to the flute.

The only definition of LEGALISM

-Cicero 13:29 Wherefore, not only is the military glory which you slight to be preferred to your -formula and legal pleas; but even the habit of speaking is far superior, as regards the attainment of honours, to the profession to the practice of which you devote yourself. And therefore many men appear to me to have preferred this at first; but afterwards, being unable to attain eminence in this profession, they have descended to [p. 344] the other. Just as men say, when talking of Greek practitioners, that those men are -flute-players who cannot become -harp-players, so we see some men, who have not been able to make orators, turn to the study of the law.  There is great LABOR in the practice of oratory. It is an important business, one of great dignity, and of most exceeding influence. In truth, from you lawyers men seek some degree or advantage; but from those who are orators they seek actual safety. In the next place, your replies and your decisions are constantly overturned by eloquence, and cannot be made firm except by the advocacy of the orator; in which if I had made any great proficiency myself; I should be more sparing while speaking in its praise; but at present I am saying nothing about myself; but only about those men who either are or have been great in oratory.

Jesus cast out the flute players using a term like one casting out dung.

-cĭthăroedus , i, m., = -kitharōdos,  I.one who plays on the cithara, accompanying it with the voice (diff. from citharista by the accompanying singing),

If you want to say that the Spirit OF Christ was TOO IGNORANT to add a Guitar or Flute player then that is exactly what God wants you to do.

Psalm 150  is part of the hymnbook of the church: He concludes that everything that has BREATH including the musical instruments
Revelation 5 depicts the end of time.  worship God, heaven,
   Use musical instruments back to god.

David would understand a psalm as a MIZMOR: there are only 50 mizmors none of which mention instruments which were considered to be used as TEACHING Psalms.  The SYNAGOGUE which protected the Godly people FROM the worship in the FIRMAMENT never had a "praise service" and neither is one remotely part of a New Testament Assembly.

David made himself "vile" (Halal) by singing, playing, dancing and going naked with the camp-following girls.  His dancing made him strip off even the Ephod which was a VULVA and the stola was that of a female dancer.  The dancing or leaping of David was acting like a GOAT and his whirling dance was in imitation of the constellations which David and all of the Civil-Military-Monarchy "worshipped."  We don't call a SCHOOL OF THE WORD a WORSHIP SERVICE so we pretend to be DISCIPLES and teach what Jesus commanded to be taught and observed.

Only in Deuteronomy 14:5 (Hebrews zemer), an animal of the deer or gazelle species. It bears this Hebrew name from its leaping or springing.

We find, from the earliest times, that the worship of Apollo was connected with a religious dance called Hyporchema  The Dionysiac or Bacchic and the Corybantian were of a very different nature. In the former, the life and adventures of the god were represented by mimetic dancing (see Dionysia); the dance called Bakchikê was a satyric dance,


Notice to "play on a musical instrument is way down the listIt may be calling God stupid that He didn't know what everyone knew: you use several words or compound words if you want to even HINT at "making music" when the command is to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for comfort and doctrine.

Psalm 33:2 Praise [CREAK, shout for joy outlawed for the synagogue or Church in the wilderness, meaning to TRIUMPH OVER your enemies]

the LORD WITH harp: [kinor meaning to twang: no musical content-flute, guitar pick outlawed]
        sing unto him WITH the psaltery [nebel fom old dry wineskin, collapsing, nabal vile]
        and [WITH] an instrument of ten strings

If David Young is correct and this commands INSTRUMENTS when Jesus comes to be our ONLY Teacher, then each person must scream, sing, and play the harp and the psaltery (harlots instrument) and instrument with ten strings ALL AT THE SAME TIME.  If you intend to WORSHIP you must also be flat on your face while doing all of that insanity: acting like wild goats or the CAPPELLA.

WITH is a preposition: if you pluck WITH a harp then PLUCK does not mean PLAY A GUITAR.

In 2 Chronicles 29 the "pattern" for instruments, it was only during the BURNING OF THE GOATS that the Levites made instrumental noise COMMANDED BY DAVID and never by God.

First: Bible Scholars understand that David is using figurative languages since musical instruments have no breath in them.
Because David wants to worship God in the FIRMAMENT we understand that God did not command the King, kingdom, animal slaughter, temple and that the Levites were commanded to stand in ranks and make a noise ready to slaughter any godly Jew who can near the Babylonish temple and evil sacrificial system. God turned them over to worship the starry host BECAUSE of musical idolatry.

The Worsip of the Jews was Sabazianism as the initial bacchus or dionysus worship in Egypt and as Mount Sinai.

Iamblichus wrote Of the Hebrew Kadeshim and the Eleusinian. Thus "Bacchus was directly called upon," he says. The Sabazian worship was Sabbatic; the names Evius, or Hevius, and Luaios are identical with Hivite and Levite. The French name Louis is the Hebrew Levi; Iacchus again is Iao or Jehovah; and Baal or Adon, like Bacchus, was a phallic god. "Who shall ascend into the hill (the high place) of the Lord?" asks the holy king David, "who shall stand in the place of his Kadushu [[Heb char]]"? (Psalms xxiv. 3). Kadesh may mean in one sense to devote, hallow, sanctify, and even to initiate or to set apart; but it also means the ministers of lascivious rites (the Venus-worship) and the true interpretation of the word Kadesh is bluntly rendered in Deuteronomy xxiii. 17; Hosea iv. 14; and Genesis xxxviii., from verses 15 to 22. The "holy" Kadeshuth of the Bible were identical as to the duties of their office with the Nautch-girls of the later Hindu pagodas.

Deut 23:17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.

Deut 23:18 Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the Lord thy God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the Lord thy God.

Hos 4:14 I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall.

The Hebrew Kadeshim or galli lived "by the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the grove," or bust of Venus-Astarte, says verse the seventh in the twenty-third chapter of 2 Kings.

The dance performed by David round the ark was the "circle-dance" said to have been prescribed by the Amazons for the Mysteries. Such was the dance of the daughters of Shiloh (Judges xxi. 21, 23 et passim), and the leaping of the prophets of Baal (I Kings xviii. 26). It was simply a characteristic of the Sabean worship, for it denoted the motion of the planets round the sun.

That the dance was a Bacchic frenzy is apparent. Sistra were used on the occasion, and the taunt of Michael and the king's reply are very expressive. "The king of Israel uncovered himself before his maid-servants as one of the vain (or debauched) fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself." And he retorts: "I will play (act wantonly) before [[Heb char]], and I will be yet more vile than this, and I will be base in my own sight."

Paul did not CORRUPT the WORD meaning "selling learning at retail." The same word is used in history to define adultery or prostitution.  That is why to avoid the MARK and make it clear to the tiny number of lost but found spirits, the command from the wilderness onward was and is:

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath
        in every city them that PREACH him, being READ in the synagogues every sabbath day.

Sabbath never meant WORSHIP but REST: the godly people were hobbled in their isolated villiages because the God-Abandoned Civil-Military-Clergy complex was quarantined behind city gates: because God abandoned them to worship the starry host, nothing that happened during the Law of the Monarchy was commanded by God.

We will look at his backfiring proof text from Psalm 33 where David is confessing that he is making himself vile with the PSALTERY. This was universally the instrument of prostitutes and was used by David when he WENT NUDO with the camp following girls.  He will use use Psalm 15 which is a HALAL which again useses the instruments for making war of making impure sex which instrumental idolatry caused the fatal fall at Mount Sinai and Paul in Romans 1 proves that, as the Classics confirm, music is the SIGN or CAUSE of men who are "Drunk on wine, perverted or just having fun."

The Spirit OF Christ defined the Qahal, Ekklesia, Synagogue or Church of Christ (the Rock) both inclusively and exclusively AFTER the SENIOR CLERGY who brought their abominations with them from Egypt rose up to PLAY with the lusted for singing, clapping, playing, dancing and playing with one another (Romans 1).  In Romans 10 Paul warned the Jews who thought that they were special that they had sinned beyond redemption at Mount Sinai because of their girlish worship around the golden calf.  In 1 Corinthians 10 He used the same PATTERN to warn against DEMON WORSHIP.

1Corinthians 10:1 Moreover, brethren,
         I would not that ye should be ignorant,
        how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
1Corinthians 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
1Corinthians 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
1Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink:
        for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them:
        and that Rock was Christ.
1Corinthians 10:5 But with many of them God was not well pleased:
        for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
1Corinthians 10:6 Now these things were our examples,
        to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

Christ also warned of the day when women and BOYS would rule over you (Isaiah 3). And he will use Revelation 5 where the literal harps would be in the hands of the ELDERS and BEASTS who are forced to fall on their faces: The BEASTS is defined as "A New Style of Mosic or Drama." And the MARK is the performance of musical "worship" which marks their CHARACTER.

The end-time Prophetic type is a SIGN of the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17) using "lusted after fruits" (same as Amos 8)

They are Galli or emasculated Priests (Paul warned     ) of the Mother Goddess and John identified the craftsmen (any paid for the free water of the Word), singers, instrument players and GRINDERS (the millstone) as SORCERERS (Miriam and the Levites) and said they would be or are being Cast Alive into the lake of fire.

Anyone who has learned to read can clearly see that the COMMAND in Romans 15 after silenceing all of the hypocritiic performers is to "use one mind and one mouth" speaking "that which is written for our learning and comfort of the SCRIPTURES.  The elders as the only Pastor--Teacher is commanded to teach that which has been taught. The command of Christ from the wilderness onward was "teach that which has been taught" after silencing the "vocal or instrumental rejoicing including self-speakers whom Jesus claimed were sons of the Devil.

Ode and Psallo are both OPPOSITE to the LOGOS words and keeping the pagan music SILENT as in 1 Corinthians 14 would automatically EXCLUDE those Paul in Philippians 3 defined as Dogs or Concision while worship was IN THE SPIRIT and not IN THE FLESH.

The LOGOS speaking words are OPPOSITE to the ODE and the ODE is opposite to the command to SPEAK that which is written for our learning.

I will look at a Shock and Awe sermon. A musical instrument is a machine for doing hard work mostly in making war and the SHOCK AND AWE of the instrumental sorcerers who, as music from mystery means "To Make the Lambs dumb before the Slaughter." They MUSICALLY MOCKED Jesus up to the foot of the old Rugged Cross.

David Young has always been enamoured by the Great American Awakenings: Recorded history and the evil, divisive results of Cane Ridge and the rethanking of the DUPED, proves that they were practicing WITCHCRAFT or SORCERY and the movement was IGNITED (fire starter-music starter) by the Blacks singing, shouthing and clapping.  The first Great American Awakening split the quakers 4 ways and produced over 300 Baptists denominations of which there are still 146 distinct Sowing of Discord.



Romans 12: Spiritual worship is Rational worship devoted to the LOGOS or Word of Christ which is the Regulative principle outlawing all of the external ACTS being sold as performing worship which is in the FLESH because the ACTS like music from mystery means "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."
 Worship means to give attention to God by giving attention to His Word which was left to us as a "memory" of the eye and Ear Witnesses of the Risen Christ Who made more certain or CERTIFIED the PATTERN for the Assembly both inclusively and exclusively.  This can only happen in the human spirit or mind made into A holy spirit which comes by request when we are washed in water INTO the word or Into the School of the Word.

The PATTERN from the Church in the wilderness was to PREACH the Word (only) by READING the Word on the sabbath day which was to rest FROM the always-pagan and Jewish worship of the starry host. No mortal is prepared not can become prepared to go beyond the command to the elders to "teach that which has been taught." Sorry, that this pattern which lasted several centuries simply has to ROLES and no DONE which hobbles the godly classes from trying to force growth when the command for the only assigned people is to GO and preach the Word, Baptize them INTO the Word or School of Chist and then Teach them what HE COMMANDED to be taught.
Romans 11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
        how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
Romans 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counseller?
Romans 11:35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
Romans 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things:
        to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

God sent Jesus to be both Lord and Christ and SPEAK the WORD or LOGOS of God. This was to certify that no mortal can know the mind or Spirit OF God unless He delivers the Word: Peter affirms that the Word is not subject to private interpretation or further expounding. To go beyond the command to hold ekklesia or synagogue to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine is to prove that one is OF the WORLD for whom Jesus will not pray and the Wise or Sophists (speakers, singers, instrument players) FROM WHOM God HIDES Himself.

Isaiah 59:16 And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.
Isaiah 59:20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.
Isaiah 59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD;
        My spirit that is upon thee,
        and my words which I have put in thy mouth,
        shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed,
        nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.


Romans 12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that
        YE present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God,
        which is your reasonable service.  
        ēn logikēn latreian humōn:
Darby: [which is] your intelligent service.

In the real world a person agrees to serve the person and company which feeds him.  Unless one is arrogant they go into the Boss' Office and PRESENT themselves to be told how to be a profitable servant in that office or Vineyard. 

SILENCE BEFORE GOD IS THE UNIVERSAL COMMAND.  Isaiah 57 has Christ defining the meaning of Silence before God Almighty as a Prophetic Type for anyone who understands that in Isaiah 58 Christ outlawed seeking your own pleasure or even speaking your own words.

To the law and to the testimony:
        if they speak not according to this word,
        it is because there is no light in them. Isa 8:20

In 1 Timothy 2 Paul silenced both male and female who are most likely to bring on wrath, orge or ORGY so that there can be peace and quiet. This was to MAKE POSSIBLE the one piece pattern that "everyone be saved (safe from paganism) and come to a knowledge of the Truth: The Word of Christ IS truth and is the Spirit OF Truth.  You cannot add any institutional baggage or "minister" or "ministries" which burden the flock and do not fit the PATTERN of church is A School of the Word: we are washed with water INTO the Word or into the School of Christ.

Perhaps only the woman at the well understood that when Messias comes He will TELL US ALL THINGS.

John 4:20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain
        and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
John 4:21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me,
        the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain,
nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

These mountains were HOUSES at PLACES: worship IN SPIRIT is a place and the pattern to give attention to THE TRUTH which came when "Messias told us all things."  Both male and female catamites were regular attenders around all sacrificial temples (not commanded by God). Paul knew that the Dogs or Cynics would be looking for any young assembly where food and money might be present: the Levite and all sacrificial instrument players were called sorcerers and parasites. Thereforee,

Philippians 3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.
Philippians 3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
Philippians 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.

ANY SERVICE OUTSIDE OF THE ASSEMBLY COMMANDED TO SPEAK THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN, SERVICE or SLAVING for others in the name of the Lord  is liturgy but not called worship?

"Biblical Greek. Here the meaning is always religious. leitourgia in the OT is limited to priestly and Levitical administration. In the LXX it renders chiefly the Hebrew abhodha (5656) (from abad (5647)) which signifies service to God, specially undertaken by priests and Levites (e.g. Num.8:25; Lk.1:23; Heb.8:6; 9:21).

Hebrews 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.
Hebrews 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

Hebrews 8:9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.

The people rose up in PLAY which was Instrumental Idolatry of the Egyptian Triad under Apis the golden Calf also worshipped in Samaria and condemned by Amos and Stephen. The Spirit of Christ in the Prophets affirmed that the instrumental idolatry was a sin beyond redemption

"St. Paul speaks of himself being 'offered,' as upon an altar (Ph.2:17), and Epaphras as sacrificing almost his life to supply the Philippians' lack of leitourgia (2:30). He uses the word to indicate the almsgiving of Corinthian believers (II Cor.9:12). St. Clement speaks of leitourgia of each Christian apparently in the context of the Eucharist (41:1), and later in connection with the bishop's office.(44:3,6).The placing of the word leitourgia in the context of the Eucharist so early in Christian history naturally raises the question whether this term, having a strong sacrificial sense in Biblical Greek, does not figure in the same context in the NT. Is not Paul referring thereby to the offertory gifts at the Breaking of Bread
