Elders North Boulevard Church Approves Instrumental Worship

12.18.16 The elders and "leader" makes the following accusations intending, as they boast, to infiltrate and divert your congregation to their own wicked purposes.  These false teachings have been gleaned from difficult to endure sermons.  The simple statements are Anti Biblical and various self-speak is not discussed.

David Young was hired and rehired with fundamental dogmas which repudiated the views of the historic Church of Christ defined as the Church of Christ (the Rock):

First, the public boast that he convinced other preachers never to speak against the use of instrumental "music."  There is no command, example or remove inference that God violated His REST PATTERN to call godly people out of their rest to engage in group singing with or without instruments. In fact, the Jacob-Cursed and God-Abandoned sang or screamed and made loud instrumental noise AFTER they fell into instrumental, trinitarian, perverted idolatry at Mount Sinai. As a result, both Amos and Stephen notes that because of this "transgression" God sentenced the Jews to captivity and death. God did not command but imposed the king, kingdom, animal sacrifices, temple, priests or Levites to quarantined their new "Babylonianism" behind closed gates.  Instruments are always accompanied with telling God that "we will not listen to your Word" and with BURNING.

Second, supports "instrumental" music by the use of passages such as Psalm 33 and Revelation 5.

David Young: Psalm 150  is part of the hymnbook of the church: He concludes that everything that has BREATH including the musical instruments

What is called Psalm 150 as "part of the hymnbook" of the church is not a psalm: it is a HALAL. David wants to HALAL his god in the FIRMAMENT: that is because the kings had been abandoned to worship the starry host because of instrumental idolatry of the trinity at Mount Sinai. This was a sin beyond redemption.  Halal is the root meaning of Lucifer: The Spirit OF Christ identified the king-queen of Tyre with "Lucifer the singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden."

David Young:
Revelation 5 depicts the end of time.  worship God, heaven,
       Use musical instruments back to god.
 

Psalms 33:2 Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.

H3034 yâdâh yaw-daw' A primitive root; used only as denominative from H3027 ; literally to use (that is, hold out) the hand; physically to throw (a stone, an arrow) at or away; especially to revere or worship (with extended hands); intensively to bemoan (by wringing the hands):—cast (out), (make) confess (-ion), praise, shoot, (give) thank (-ful, -s, -sgiving).

Psalm 150 is a Halal or "making self vile" in the "firmament" or in the worship of the starry host instead of the Creator of the Hosts.  Halal is the root of the word LUCIFER as the "singing and harp-playing prostitute" in the garden of Eden.
Third, the beginning and most-recent attempts to reproduce the Cane Ridge "Revival". He and they believe that "a" spirit caused people to sing, shout, roll in the floor, bark up trees to get the devil, fight over garbage and other mental aberrations. In earlier days Cane Ridge would be seen as a giant outbreak of witchcraft and the participants would be burned at the stake.  In fact, religious singing or playing is derived from a violent assault against people and in Revelation 18 is called SORCERY.  The participants were foreordained (Jude) and HAD ONCE deceived the whole world and would be CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.  Any person or thing is dedicated to Adorn (the World or

The sounds and sights of being cast into HELL involves Lucifer's wind, string and percussion instruments.  See Isaiah 30.

A Musical Praise Team or Worship Team or anything enhancing the power of music is a Defacto Musical Instrument.  It performs the same Purpose Driven task of hurting people by creating the LADED BURDEN "or spiritual anxiety created by religious rituals" to which the Kingdom DOES not come.  It is SELF-PLEASURE which in Romans 15 is the Greek Areskos or Latin Placeo which includes any thing that creates "mental excitement".  This is always to make the "lambs dumb before the slaughter" so that the directly commanded and exapled One-Piece Pattern CANNOT take place.
Rom. 15:2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
Rom. 15:3 For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written,
        The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
Rom. 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
        that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Rom. 15:5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
Rom. 15:6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

That one-piece pattern was commanded by the Spirit OF Christ for the church or synagogue AFTER the clergy rose up in musical idolatry.  Paul in Romans 1 defines the MARK that the singing and playing instruments leads to playing with one another in a bad sense.

Fourth, a constant "false accuser" role accusing the other congregations with inventing as "traditional, legalism" NOT using instruments.
David makes a common perhaps demeaning mistake by the analogy (forbidden by the LOGOS word) as a Paint By Numbers as opposed to a Masterpiece.  The Artists is compared to worship as the Masterful EXPERIENCE of a powerful God.
Paul in 2 Corinthians 3 said that those who had not "turned" or been converted to Christ as the ONLY Teacher cannot HEAR the Word when is READ in the synagogue nor can he READ BLACK text on BROWN PAPER.

For the Masculine Logos-focused Scripture and the Classics connected SOPHIA to the performing arts and to a gender-bleed.  On the other hand, groups who were LOGOS based always dismissed the speakers, singers and instrument players SO that they could hold dialog.  Almost no one can grasp Ephesiahs 5

PAUL COMMANDED THAT BOTH MALE AND FEMALE BE SILENT SO THAT ALL MIGHT BE SAFE AND COME TO A KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.  THE EKKLESIA OR SYNAGOGUE HAD EDUCATION ONLY WITH NO GOD-GIVEN FUNDING

Conclusions: Therefore, the command was to lay it by themselves:

"Every one was to lay by in store, have a treasury, or fund, WITH HIMSELF, for this purpose. The meaning is that he should lay by as he could spare from time to time, and by this means make up a sum for this charitable purpose. The Greek fathers rightly observe that this advice was given for the sake of the poorer among them.

They were to lay by from week to week,
and NOT bring into the
COMMON TREASURY,

that by this means their contributions might be easy for themselves, and yet grow into a fund for the relief of their brethren." (Theological Dict. of the N.T., p. 599)

In Genesis 19 Jacob cursed the tribe of Levi and warned people not to attend their "worship services" nor to enter into their covenant. They should wait for SHILOH was enjoyed in that age by the commanded church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness and promised fully AFTER God destroy the Jewish national worship which was Babylonish because that is what they were abandoned to.  David denounces the Regulative Principle but the Word or Logos IS God's regulative principle outlawing what Jesus called hypocrites: speakers for hire, singers or instrument players all which are Purpose Driven to silence Jesus and HIS Word.  Anti Regulative Principle is Anti-Christian because Jesus spoke ONLY what He heard from HIS father-teacher. Worship among the Jews was defined as HARD BONDAGE using the Abaddon word to define the Levite's work including playing instruments.

Church from the wilderness onward and momentarily restored by the Campbells is a SCHOOL OF CHRIST with that which is written for our learning. A Christian is a Disciple is a Student and does not perform ceremonial legalism including the lie about "laying by in store."  Shiloh then and now in a CHRISTIAN SCHOOL is:

, Promoting a "Christian World View" including lifting your congregation to welcome everyone but the "fleecees".
        The World is the Kosmos or Ecumenical which is defined as the Kingdom of the Devil. Jesus said that He did not pray for the "world" and that neither He nor His disciples (students only) are not OF this world


Sixth
, David Young and church defends and supports Messianic Judaism which accepts Jesus as the messiah of the JEWS but continues to practice legalism. This teaches that the New Covenant was the OLD Covenant given to Jews but "available" to Christians.  Church institutional structures are built upon the Jewish or Babylonish model to which God abandoned the Jews because of Instrumental-Trinitarian-Perverted "play."

KAIROS is the demon son of Zeus: Kairos means the right TIME to attach the Church and the right PLACE to strike the blow.

The Kairos Church Planting Plot and Jimmy Adcox

Apollo or Apollon is the only personified SPIRIT and he is the leader of the Locusts which are the Muses or his "musical worship team." The Muses were know as SHEPHERDESSES and dirty PROSTITUTES.  Hermes or Kairos invented the Lyre as the Jubal "god" while still in his cradle. He is the father of liars and cheats and used his lyre or harp to teach Apollon's cattle to walk backward. When found out about his thieving "cattle stealing" he gave his harp or lyre to Apollo and is his instrument of choice and the basis of musical harmony and the "Psallo" harp plucking concept.  Those keeping you busy with "worship services" and trying to appeal to the WORLD for which Jesus did not pray, "scholars" are ignorant and keep their flocks ignorant of recorded history which MARKS religious musicians or speakers as parasites.

SAVED BY FAITH FROM WHAT? Paul always points to pagan Anti-Logos (Regulative Principle) and therefore Anti-Christ legalistic worship rituals.

Plat. Sym. 215a
Are you not a piper? [215c] Why, yes, and a far more marvellous one than the satyr. His lips indeed had power to entrance mankind by means of instruments; a thing still possible today for anyone who can pipe his tunes: for the music of Olympus' flute belonged, I may tell you, to Marsyas his teacher. So that if anyone, whether a fine flute-player or paltry flute-girl, can but flute his tunes, they have no equal for exciting a ravishment, and will indicate by the divinity that is in them who are apt recipients of the deities and their sanctifications.

Plat. Sym. 215

Crito No, Socrates, I have nothing to say.

[215e] I am worse than any wild fanatic; I find my heart leaping and my tears gushing forth at the sound of his speech, and I see great numbers of other people having the same experience. When I listened to Pericles and other skilled orators I thought them eloquent, but I never felt anything like this; my spirit was not left in a tumult and had not to complain of my being in the condition of a common slave: whereas the influence of our Marsyas here has often thrown me into such a state

1 This satyr was fabled to have challenged Apollo to a musical contest, and on his fluting being judged inferior to Apollo's harping he was flayed alive by the god for his presumption, and his skin was hung up like a bag or bottle in a cave; cf. Herod. vii. 26
Plat. Sym. 216 that I thought my life not worth living on these terms. In all this, Socrates, there is nothing that you can call untrue. Even now I am still conscious that if I consented to lend him my ear, I could not resist him, but would have the same feeling again.

Plat. Minos 318b
Socrates

Then is it Marsyas, by tradition, and his beloved Olympus, the Phrygian?

That is true.

The Kairos Church Planting Plot: Kairos (Hermes-Mercury) is the demon son of Zeus among pagans. He is the false Christ Who is the only mediator between God and Man.  Kairos means the right time to mount an attack as Jesus came at the right time to put down the Civil-Military-Clergy robbing and enslaving those God liberated. Christ's Covenant is to the LAITY exclusive of Priests or Levites.

Coming: North Boulevard Church of Christ Trinitarian: John writes that ANTI-christs deny. Among Pagans: Jesus was called a Son only after He was baptized and He was not Lord or Christ until the One God the Father MADE HIM TO BE:

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

1Cor. 8:5 For though there be that are called gods,
        whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
1Cor. 8:6 But to us there is but one God [Theos], the Father,
        of whom are all things, and we in him;
and one Lord [Kurios] Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

All uses of musical (noise) instruments are left by the Spirit OF Christ of those performance hired preachers, singers or instrument players: neither intends to either speak or obey the WORD (Dabaf-Logos) as the Regulative Principle which OUTLAWS rhetoric, singing or playing instruments when the assembly is commanded to assemble ONCE EACH WEEK on the REST day to Read and Rehearse or learn and mutually confess that God speaks and we listen.

Instruments are also the marks of God driving His enemies into HELL or ALIVE into the LAKE OF FIRE: the craftsmen are called SORCERERS which includes any enhancement of words refusing to "use one mind and one mouth" to teach that which is written for our LEARNING.

The Israelite fell into instrumental-trinitarian idolatry at Mount sinai: this was a sin beyond redemption and God abandoned them to worship the starry host. All of the Lost Tribes of Abilene use God's ABANDONMENT to say that "a" spirit commanded them to sow massive discord by becoming Instrumental Sectarian.  Jude says not to worry because they are spirits of old who HAD once deceived the whole world. This world created by Jesus as the Christ is RESERVED FOR FIRE.

A Church or Ekklesia is the group spirits translated into a heavenly kingdom. The kingdom does not come with observation meaning religious observations.  Church is a SAFE HOUSE to prevent especially religious merchants from taking them captivie.

By direct command, Bible examples and history the ekklesia assembles itself as SYNAGOGUE just one time each REST day. The one piece pattern for the synagogue was to Read the Word, Listen to the Word, understand the Word and go home having memorized a complete story line so that they could "speak to themselves and meditate in the heart each week."

Anything beyond what Christ and the Campbells defined as A School of Christ in the Prophets and Apostles is a SECTARIAN DIVISION and a cult in increasing panic driven men who refuse to obey the command to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine.

Christ gifted only APT elders as the pastor teachers and deacons are the ministers of a congregation--not fixers of broke scooters.

Job one if you have APT elders is that they eject the cunning craftsmen or sophists: they are speakers for hire, singers or instrument players. Only as a MARK are they Casters of Visions which like all musical terms identifies sorcerers or witches.

Elders as pastor-teachers are to remove cunning craftsmen or sophists: rhetoricians, singers, instrument players, actors so that the School of the Word only is possible because THEY ARE LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE

Pagan Worship systems like most "christian" worship systems are based myths but THAT is what they do so it is literate to try to understand what The Spirit was saying to those not OF the World or not SOPHISTS.

David Skidmore led the Purpose Driven "Cult" and the Winterfest known by all to be Jeff Wallings place to seduce the Youth into the Instrumental (Idolatrous) Sect.  Jimmy Adcox imported by North Boulevard is a major leader of the Purpose Driven Cult (stole my investment in Hohenwald also) and the Kairos Church Planting Plot.  Kairos is the demon (spirit) son of Zeus and grandson of Chronos: time to thrust in the Sickle.  Kairos TIME is the time to ATTACK and take captive some one elses property.  I knew the Kairos Guru when he was a youth: the Northwest Church was one of the first to "infiltrate and divert for their own profit.   The Kairos Church Planting Plot: mother church established daughter churches intended to be instrumental by bleeding off the "investment" of others.

Jeff Walling, Mike Cope, Pepperdine and the Christian Church and a church near you

The Christian Church Today This past week, the North American Christian Convention, Pepperdine University, and Mike Baker, senior pastor at Eastview Christian Church in Normal, IL and 2015 NACC president, debuted the website for its "Next Gen Preacher Search." High school and college students interested in preaching are invited to submit a five-minute video of their preaching for review, feedback, and coaching. 40 submissions will be chosen as semi-finalists and the selected students will be assigned a "mentor preacher" who will work with them for six months.

Next February the semi-finalists will attend a training event with Jeff Walling, Trevor DeVage, and other leaders, and from these forty students, four will be chosen to preach at gatherings like the NACC, the Pepperdine Bible Lectureship, and the Winterfest conferences.


The NACC sends out "agents" like Jeff Walling to tell you how to TRANSITION the Widows Houses into "theaters of Holy Entertainment" as part of the NACC denomination
Rick Atchley said that "we took our youth to hear these Christian Bands (an oxymoron) to TEACH OUR YOUTH TO LEAVE OUR MOVEMENT.

RICK ATCHLEY: When WE made the decision, we knew we would have to explain why WE were making the decision,  so I led the church through some teaching on why WE were making the change WE made.

And  "We used christian bands to teach your youth to leave your movement."

As Jeff Walling and the Winterfest delusion MENTORED David Skidmore who was affirmed by the Northwest Elders, David Faust an earlier president of the NACC mentored and held Rick Atchley as he lied to God and about God and lied to HIS congregation by promising never to add instruments: when HE added instruments and lost many of the faithful he said THAT WAS THEN BUT THIS IS NOW.  Of Ephesians 4 Paul says that the SOPHISTS will always be LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  The singers, players and craftsmen are called SORCERERS in Revelation 18 and John said THEY HAD DECEIVED the whole world once. Therefore, it is probably true that the Senior Pastor Person was undoubtedly PREDESTINED as part of the MUSES which were unleashed with Abaddo, or Apollyon who is the SPIRITUS and Leader of the Muses: not even Judas understood that he was to try to spook Jesus with the outlawed "vocal or instrumental rejoicing or rhetoric."

1. David Faust insists:
        I . In the Old Testament the Lord didn't merely "permit" the use of musical instruments as aids to worship.
                He commanded their use.

        2. In the old Testament the Lord didn't merely "permit' the use of musical instruments as aids to worship.
                He blessed their use.

2. BUT, Christ in the Prophets said:

Jer. 8:7 Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; 
        and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; 
        but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.

Jer. 8:8 How do ye say, We are WISE
        and the law of the LORD is WITH US? 
        LO, CERTAINLY IN VAIN MADE HE IT;        
        THE PEN OF THE SCRIBES IS in vain.
The Christian Church is out of the Methodists-Church of England-Catholic High Church tradition which gives them the right to make up their own scriptures as confessed by postmodernism at all of the big-time once-Christian colleges.

The Catholic-Anglican-Methodist flowed out of the Jewish Civil-Military-Clergy complex which God imposed and did not command. That is marked by the nature of church architecture, a pyramidal organization structure or Temple-Ziggurat where the "king set over us" or senior pastor is the god's agent: he is supported by a staff of priests, prophets, exorcists, cooks, praise singers and even prostitute.  Paul identified corrupting the word or "selling your learning at retail" as prostitution.

That is why preachers see music in worshiping the starry host as THEIR command to impose the abuse and money seeking tower of Babel.

Judaizing Promoted and Endorsed by Josheph Shulam

9.12.14  Long, Long ago North Boulevard had a history on the Cane Ridge Revival which is falsely assumed to be the work of the Holy Spirit and a pattern for churches of Christ. This was the so-called Second Great American Awakening which followed on the First Great American Awaken which was built upon the mind set of the Salem Witch Craft outbreak.  There are early historical accounts of superstitious people being manipulated into performing certain "acts" which is sold as worshiping the gods.  It is probably that early accounts of mostly young girls performing exercises and even the Cane Ridge Revival may have been influenced by Barley or  Rye bread which carries ergot.  A Disciple of Christ will understand that Jesus and Paul guarded against wrath or orgy which is singing, playing or doing any body worship which is legalism.  Dionysus worship appeared at Mount Sinai as musical idolatry of the Egyptian trinity.  He is the old and New Wineskins God of recent fame.

Paul wanted the mean to pray that EVERYONE be SILENT and PEACEFUL.
The Purpose Driven Church was "so that all might be saved (safe) and come to a knowledge of THE TRUTH."
The women were to be silent not because Paul was a liar but because of the nature of women and the rare male who could fall into the gender-specific singing, clapping, playing instruments, hugging, kissing and MUCH MORE. Christ in the Prophets defined the Christian REST both inclusively and exclusively and Jesus died to fire the Burden Laders which defines "spiritual anxiety created by religious observations" to which Jesus said the Kingdom does not come.  Sorry, but there is no recorded exception:

"Philodemus considered it paradoxical that music should be regarded as veneration of the gods while musicians were paid for performing this so-called veneration. Again, Philodemus held as self deceptive the view that music mediated religious ecstasy. He saw the entire condition induced by the noise of cymbals and tambourines as a disturbance of the spirit.

He found it significant that, on the whole, only women and effeminate men fell into this folly.

Accordingly, nothing of value could be attributed to music; it was no more than a slave of the sensation of pleasure, which satisfied much in the same way that food and drink did.

MUSIC AND THE RISE OF THE ANDROGYNOUS WORSHIP LEADER:   MUSIC AND THE EFFEMINATE

Pandemonium and Silence

by Cathie and Dick Clark Kroeger

Although we may idealize the early church, most of us would not have enjoyed a visit to a worship service at Corinth. The impression which one was most likely to receive was that of chaos and delirious insanity:

So if the whole congregation is assembled and all are using the 'strange tongues' of ecstasy, and some uninstructed persons or unbelievers should enter, will they not think you are mad? (1Corinthians 14:23, NEB)

Greeks considered madness an important aspect of worship. Women in particular responded to Bacchus (also known as Dionysus Wineskins Pattern), the god of madness; 'him of the orgiastic cry, exciter of women, Dionysus, glorified with mad honors'. (Plutarch, Moralia 671c) Ancient Corinth was a center of Dionysiac worship, and Pausinius, world traveler of the second century of our era gives this description:

In the market-place, for most of the temples are there, is the Ephesian Artemis, and there are two wooden statues of Dionysus [aka Jochin and Boaz], gilt except the faces, which are painted with red paint, one they call Lysian Dionysus and the other Dionysus the Reveler. The tradition about these statues I will record. Pentheus, they say, when he outraged dionysus, among other acts of reckless daring actually at last went to mount Cithaeron to spy on the women, and climbed up into a tree to see what they were doing; and when they detected him, they forthwith dragged him down, and tore him limb from limb. And afterwards, so they say at Corinth, the Pythian priestess told them to discover that tree and pay it divine honors. And that is why these statues are made of that very wood. (Description of Greece, II.ii; tr. A.R. Shilleto)

There was in Corinth, then, a significant monument memorializing the savagery of female Bacchus worshippers. Nor was such a feminine ferocity confined to Pentheus alone. Women under the inspiration of Bacchus were said to have torn Orpheus limb from limb; and Alexander the Great was supposed to have incorporated a group of these maenads (mad women) into his army in his attempt to conquer India.

1Corinthians 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues
        of men and of angels,               (condemned)
        and have not charity, (Grace)   (condemned)
        I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

It may help us to understand that the Greek word lelein refers primarily to utterance rather than to meaningful conversation. The term is used repeatedly in chapter 14 to describe speaking in tongues. Phrynichus, the ancient dictionarian, defined the term as 'to talk nonsense'.

The word is used of gossip, prattling, babbling, animal sounds, and musical instruments. During the classical period, it usually was employed in a contemptuous sense. Debrunner, writing in the Kittle-Friedrich Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, states 'Lalein can also be used quite objectively of speech when there is reference to sound rather than than meaning. 'To what kind of utterance can St. Paul refer? There were many types of vocalization in ecstatic rites.

They have been heard to utter (different voices of equal strength, or with great diversity and inequality) in tones that alternated with silence; and again in other cases harmonious crescendo or dimenuendo of tone, and in still other cases other kinds of utterance. (Iamblichus, On the Mysteries, III, 4-6)

Graves in his second edition of Greek Myths (1960) suggests the wild autumnal feast of the Ambrosia where the Centaurs worshipped Dionysus involved either amanita muscaria or a psilocybin-bearing mushroom such as paneolus papilionaceus, however this species is believed to be inactive (Stamets 1996). Schultes mentions that the wine of Bacchanals was often adulterated with the juice of nightshade, citing the fact that the maenads dilated their eyes and threw themselves into the arms of male worshippers or with 'flaming eyes' fell upon men to tear them apart and eat them (Schultes and Hofmann 1979 88). It has also been suggested that a hallucinogenic strain of ergot fungus growing on Greek wild grasses could have provided the basis of the grain stalk of the Eleusinian Mysteries in a more clement form of intoxication than the toxic forms that infecting rye that later caused epidemics of madness and St. Anthony's fire in medieval Europe.

St. Vitus's dance Also known as St. Vitus's dance, between the eleventh and seventeenth centuries, manias swept across Europe as tens of thousands of people participated in frenzied public orgies and wild dances lasting for days and sometimes weeks. It is little wonder why psychiatrists and medical historians classify such episodes as group mental disorder affecting those overwhelmed by the stresses of the period. During outbreaks many immodestly tore off their clothing and pranced naked through the streets. Some screamed and beckoned to be tossed into the air; others danced furiously in what observers described as strange, colorful attire. A few reportedly laughed or weeped to the point of death. Women howled and made obscene gestures while others squealed like animals. Some rolled themselves in the dirt or relished being struck on the soles of their feet.

No one from what Jesus called the "singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden" did not know that instrumental or pseudo instrumental sounds attach the spiritual or mental nature of mankind: that is why it is called SORCERY in the Bible and most recorded history.  That is why the masses of people will never pay the price and subject themselves to an already Burden Laded life: The Laded  burden Jesus died to remove along with the Burden laders is a form of singing which "creates spiritual ANXIETY through religious rituals."  It is a terminal offense to deliberately discord and destroy the REST Jesus died to give us FREE OF CHARGE.  The Laded Burden is also a Tax not in time of war: Christ commanded the godly NOT to pay for the Free Water of His Word.

Music induces a DRUG HIGH and I personally have to flee from people turning the School of the Word into a pagan worship service.  Boat loads of money and performance rituals will never keep up with the population growth while mortal sin is refusing to GO into the World and preach what JESUS COMMANDED too be taught: He called the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites. In Ezekiel 33 Christ names speakers for HIRE, singers and instrument players.  It is true that God never said: "Thou shalt not be a hypocrite." Jesus said that God HIDES from the wise or sophists which are self-speakers, singers, instrument players and actors.  So, Jesus guarantees that rejecting the Word requests that God send strong delusions that people believe their own lie and be damned.  Lying Wonders includes a Female PRAISE preacher which Paul outlawed.

  1. If you  teach that God ordained any kind of group singing with or without instruments.
  2. And God did NOT remotely command, example or infer any kind of music.
  3. Then Christ in Jeremiah 23 says that you DESPISE the Word which is the word BLASPHEMY of the Holy Spirit OF Christ.
  1. If you say that God did not radically condemn any kind of instrumental noise even for the Jacob-cursed and God-Abandoned Levites.
  2. And God turned the Levi tribe over to Worship the Starry host which included the Abaddon (service) or Apollyon as the Leader of the Musical Team.
  3. Then you despise God, His Word and the People now taken captive and that is defined as blasphemy and without redemption.

MAKING THE LAMBS DUMB BEFORE THE SLAUGHTER IS A TRAINED MINISTRY

Aristot. Nic. Eth. 1175b.1

But things that are akin to things of different kinds must themselves differ in kind. [3] A still clearer proof may be drawn
        from the hindrance that activities
        receive from the pleasure derived from other activities.

For instance, persons fond of the flute cannot give their attention to a philosophical discussion [The LOGOS or Regulative Principle]  when they overhear someone playing the flute,  because they enjoy music more than the activity in which they are engaged;  therefore the pleasure afforded by the music of the flute impairs the activity of study.

EVEN IN THE MALE SYMPOSIUM--THE CROOKED RACE--when there was something to be discussed they removed the flute- and harp-girls. But this is predestinated of those OF the World for which Jesus will not even pray.

Aristotle on Politics 8
2. or whether we ought rather to think that
music tends in some degree to virtue (music being capable of producing a certain quality of character
       
just as gymnastics are capable of producing a certain quality of body,
        music accustoming men to be able to rejoice rightly);
3. or that it contributes something to intellectual
entertainment and culture (for this must be set down as a third alternative among those mentioned).
  
Now it is not difficult to see that one must not make amusement the object of the education of the young; or amusement does not go with learning--learning is a painful process.

A DISCIPLE OF CHRIST IS A LEARNER: A DISCIPLE (CHRISTIAN) WILL NEVER ATTEND A THEATRICAL "WORSHIP" RITUAL DEFINED AS IMPURE RELIGION.

4.16.14 Jimmy Adcox and his brother [elder] using his son GREW the local congregation from about 350 to about 150 and left a stink in the county: the Purpose Driven Cult can, says Russ Adcox, not work where there are faithful members: it should be done in a NEW CHURCH PLANT or one CONFISCATED using the name The Church of Christ.  That is quickly changed to Family of God.  The Church of Christ is the family of God: it consists of those the ONE GOD THE FATHER has given to Jesus Christ the Son.  The Spirit OF Christ defined the Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness AFTER the Jacob-Cursed and God-Abandoned Levites volunteered to execute 3,000 of their "brethren" for engaging in vocal and instrumental Idolatry of the Egyptian trinity represented by Apis the golden calf which Israel WANTED as their "god."

IN CASE YOU MISSED ALL OF THE OLD TESTAMENT!

"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).

Acts 7:41 And they made a calf in those days,
        and offered sacrifice unto the idol,
        and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.

This is the PATTERN David Young and a small band are IMPOSING

THE PATTERN OF THE JEW'S COVENANT WITH DEATH AND HELL

Moloch.Trumpets.Drums.Original.gif

The Hebrews became infected with Sabeanism, the oldest form of idolatry, the worship of the Saba or starry hosts, in their stay in the Arabian desert, where Job notices its prevalence (Job 31:26); in opposition, in Am 5:27, Jehovah declares Himself "the God OF hosts." the star of your god--R. ISAAC CARO says all the astrologers represented Saturn as the star of Israel. Probably there was a figure of a star on the head of the image of the idol, to represent the planet Saturn; hence "images" correspond to "star" in the parallel clause. A star in hieroglyphics represents God (Nu 24:17). "Images" are either a Hebraism for "image," or refer to the many images made to represent Chiun.

The Star of David was originally the secret symbol of the stargazing priests, later adopted by the Israelite Kings David and Solomon and subsequently by the Hebrew people as a whole.

27. beyond Damascus--In Ac 7:43 it is "beyond Babylon," which includes beyond Damascus. In Amos time, Damascus was the object of Israel's fear because of the Syrian wars. Babylon was not yet named as the place of their captivity.

Stephen supplies this name. Their place of exile was in fact, as he states, "beyond Babylon," in Halah and Habor by the river Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes (2Ki 17:6; compare here Am 1:5 4:3 6:14). The road to Assyria lay through "Damascus." It is therefore specified, that not merely shall they be carried captives to Damascus, as they had been by Syrian kings (2Ki 10:32,33 13:7), but, beyond that, to a region whence a return was not so possible as from Damascus. They were led captive by Satan into idolatry, therefore God caused them to go captive among idolaters. Compare 2Ki 15:29 16:9 Isa 8:4, whence it appears Tiglath-pileser attacked Israel and Damascus at the same time at Ahaz' request (Am 3:1)

IF YOU MISSED THE OLD TESTAMENT AND STEPHEN REPUDIATING THE SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM.

At Mount Sinai after the nation refused to hear the voice of God and demanded a human mediator, they immediately fell into musical idolatry of the Egyptian (etal) trinity.  The Levites volunteered to slaughter 3,000 of the offenders so it is no surprise that the "eagles" use the Levites as their authority for "worship leaders." In fact, they have lost all options.
Luke 16:29 Abraham saith unto him,
.....They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
Luke 16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham:
.....but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
Luke 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets,
.....neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
Instrumental idolatry as PLAY (missed that one too?) was a SIN BEYOND REDEMPTION: that is why Amos and Stephens says that God sentenced them back to BABYLON.  The sounds of music in Revelation 18 are the SAME sorcerers who HAD deceived the whole world.  Since Abaddon or Apollyon is the KING or leader of the MUSES who had been sent to the underworld by the original Babylon mother of harlots, it seems certain that the MUSES are fallen spirits clearly defined in the Babylon clay  tablets.

Missed Paul also?  Too bad: strong delusions will not permit you to read.

1Corinthians 10:6 Now these things were our examples,
..... to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
1Corinthians 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written,
  .....he people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

Revelation 17-18 defines the final assault of Babylonianism: John calls all of the STAFF including speakers (sellers of the Free Word), singers and instrument players SORCERERS and says that they will be cast alive into the Lake of Fire.

The elder, the Son Russ Adcox and the Father in Law of Russ Adcox used the Maury Hills Church of Christ as their test bed: it began as always with "we don't use instruments but we don't condemn those who do." 

It began with the public confession that the TIME IS RIGHT to perform the usual NACC taught TRANSISTION of a peaceable Church of Christ into a Christian Church like Rick Atchley as the foundation.

The Southern Baptists as the NEW PARADIGM defined.
Liberal
Christians act as if it is entirely pedestrian to destroy the foundations and collapse the structure, but keep the sign out front. They feel the reaction of traditional Christians is overblown, needlessly exclusive, and of course, unloving. Nothing is more predictable from liberal Christians than the charge that any critic is attacking their "faith." As one wise man said, "Don't hate the playa. Hate the game." Liberal Christians are playing a game of "Bait and Switch" with the most valuable treasure of truth in the universe.

The problem is that liberals are seldom ever bothered by anything the Bible says. They feel little accountability to scripture at all, and usually don't see the need to judge their assertions in the light of scripture. No matter how many times the New Testament talks about the very things they are doing, or commands Christians to contend for the very things they are denying, they can only say that traditionalists are hateful and nasty. It seems that nothing in scripture is precious enough for liberals to understand our defensive emotions, but if their rights to free thought or their contention that conscience is authoritative are challenged, the reaction will be predictably angry.

The Devious Plot of the Purpose Driven Cult:  Randy Lowry claims that LU, ACU and Pepperdine are agreed on their purpose. All are bonded at the lips with the NACC which began as a sectarian split off the Disciples of Christ beginning in 1927: their primary focus has been to denounce or TAKE AN AXE to the ANTI-instrumental churches of Christ simply because they won't stop teaching the Biblical and historical facts.

NACC 2013 VICTORIUS REVIEW in the few DUPES who are paid fees, promoted and published as agents of "infiltration and Diverting." It simply is not possible for even a casual Bible Reader who now gets their teaching from their Bible or Internet to be ignorant of God's universal association between musical machines which disable the rational or spiritual mind and telling God WE WILL NOT HEAR NOR OBEY YOUR WORD.  Instruments and Burning are locked in the Lips of the Spirit OF Christ, Jesus, the Apostles and recorded history before the Disciples-Christian churches broke their body trying to put MUSIC into PSALLO.  In fact SOP and PSALLO have the same roots and speaks of the LYRE of Abaddon-Apollyon which HE (?) used to enable shooting LOVE ARROWS into his male friends and ARROWS into those who resisted him.

Randy Lowry Summer Celebration 2013 ALL of the participants have been involved with the NACC in, as they say, Transistioning Churches of Christ into the Instrumental Sect.
        David Young was there with the Changeling Chant: Change or Die. Death in some congregations has been Purpose Driven: In the words of Rubel Shelly using the Aztec pattern of sneaking in, planting a crop of corn and then INVADING.   He says that the OWNERS Mount an Attack against the invaders and CAUSE conflict: both Hitler and Machiavelli understood that pattern.  Jimmy Adcox prepared Russ Adcox who destroyed a local congregation THINKING that everyone was a fool.

The Published Agenda since about 1987 just after the NACC sected out of the Disciples sin 1971, was for once-Christian Colleges to exercise PROPHETIC ROLL to prepare Men as Chanellers to go out and Facilitate (manipulate) the demise of conservative (non instrumental Churches).  Jesus said that Doctors of the Law take away the key to knowledge: that is their destiny, that is their jobs and PAY THEM TOO.  He called these Scribes and PhariseesHYPOCRITES.  In the Prophetic Pattern by Christ in Ezekiel 33, He named slick speakers FOR PAY, singers, instrument players and the ONLY audience you can attack by silencing the Gospel.

Russ Adcox: The Purpose Driven Model (cult): Tips for Making it Work  He claims that the sectarianism will not work in MATURE CHURCHES so the advice is to establiish NEW CONGREGATIONS (Daughter churches in the Max Lucado pattern).  However, he boasts that it CAN work since the Southwest Church of Christ (Jimmy Adcox) and Russ made it work. It takes a decade or so until the Bible literate die out or escape.

Russ Adcox: The Law of Silence.  Russ Adcox and the small band CLAIM that God was Silent and that gives them the right to IMPOSE Musical Idolatry and YOU have no right to oppose.   Repeated often was the message given to J.W.McGarvey: "Get over it or get out." They justify lying to God and about God based on Eminent Domain: We gonna take YOUR property and sow massive discord because "a spirit" told us we needed musical machines to SAVE MORE SOULS.  If you listen to the lifted up with pride about the millions raised, their performing preacher, their Praise Team, their BEST sound system in town and the best LIGHTING.  This has been the historic sound and light show to seduce you and pick your pockets so they violate the demand to GO.  God is the LOGOS or Regulator of the universe: He SPEAKS (doesn't sing except when sounding your doom" and it is done.  God breathed (spirit) into Jesus who SPOKE the WORD.  The Spirit BREATHED without metron or without METER.  There is nothing tuneful in the whole Bible or Church history for about 15 centuries.  Therefore, anyone who USES music and USES musicians are strongly deluded and the LYING WONDERS prove it.

They MOCK Christ in Habakkuk and Paul who SILENCES both men and women because if you refuse to SPEAK THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN Isaiah 8 says that THERE IS NO LIGHT IN YOU and the RESULT will be WRATH or an ORGY.  An orgy exposes women to sight and sound exercising "authentia" authoritiy which is both erotic and murderous.  The women--because males rarely sang and performed--were to be silenced because they had come out of paganism and speaking in tongues includes playing instruments.  Both were to be silenced so that "All might be saved and come to a knowledge of the Truth."  The SHOCKING accusation against the Musical Apostates is that there is ONE GOD and One MEDIATOR who is not another GOD PERSON:

1Timothy 2:5 For there is one God,
        and one mediator between God and men,
        the man Christ Jesus;

Jimmy Adcox being USED to assist the sealing of the Church house of widows and honest workers DENIES THAT.

Jimmy Adcox: Southwest Church of Christ Delighting in the Trinity

Mac Sandlin Delighting in the Holy Spirir
Jesus said that HE would return in another form as the Holy Spirit which is NEVER a person but the Mental Disposition of that person. He would guide the apostles into ALL truth.  In 1 John 2 John said that the NAME of the Holy Spirit of Paraklete is Jesus Christ the Righteous. That is why claiming that "A"  spirit guided you identifies you as an ANTICHRIST.  On the other hand the SPIRITUS of Abaddon or Apollyn makes him the Leader of the Muses or Locusts.  Their job is to DRIVE out those with the Mark of the Logos and preserve for punishment those with the Mark of the BEAST.

The MARK: is defined as singing or playing an instrument
The BEAST: is defined as a new style of music or Satyric Drama (that little perverted half goat, cappella, pan)
The IMAGE: Is REimaging the Word of God into YOUR false and effeminate songs.

The command is to SPEAK the Hymns where SPEAK is the opposite of ODE which is an enchanting or sorcery word.

The always pagan trinity consisted of father, mother (spirit) and infant son. When you do an EASTER SPECTACLE you are worshiping the Babylon Mother of harlots: she is worshipped by the "lusted after fruits" (same as Amos 8)  as speakers, singers and instrument players: virtual instruments INTENDS to do a legalistic end run and fool the foolish. EASTER celebrates the PASSOVER which is a repudiation of the Death of Jesus Christ who IS OUR PASSOVER.  They never ate bread and juice at PASSOVER: they Killed the Passover which is ENACTED to refute the fact that Jesus and others preached THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM which does not come with such hypocritic (acted out) dramas which are OUTLAWED by the LOGOS or Regulative Principle.

To this Socrates replied: “Antiphon, it is common opinion among us
        in regard to beauty and wisdom
                that there is an honourable
                and a shameful way of bestowing them.
        For to offer one's beauty for money to all comers is called prostitution;

        But we think it virtuous to become friendly with
              a lover who is known to be a man of honour.

        So is it with wisdom. Those who offer it to all comers for money
               are known as sophists, prostitutors of wisdom

        But we think that he who makes a friend of one whom he knows to be gifted
               by nature, and teaches him all the good he can,

               fulfils the duty of a citizen and a gentleman.

Xen. Mem. 1.6.14 That is my own view, Antiphon. Others have a fancy for a good horse or dog or bird: my fancy, stronger even than theirs, is for good friends. And I teach them all the good I can, and recommend them to others from whom I think they will get some moral benefit. And the treasures that the wise men of old have left us in their writings I open and explore with my friends.

Prot. 313d  For among the provisions, you know, in which these men deal, not only are they themselves ignorant what is good or bad for the body, since in selling they commend them all, but the people who buy from them are so too, unless one happens to be a trainer or a doctor. And in the same way, those who take their doctrines the round of our cities, hawking them about to any odd purchaser who desires them, commend everything that they sell, and there may well be some of these too, my good sir, who are ignorant which of their wares is

[313e] good or bad for the soul; and in just the same case are the people who buy from them, unless one happens to have a doctor's knowledge here also, but of the soul. So then, if you are well informed as to what is good or bad among these wares, it will be safe for you to buy doctrines from Protagoras or from anyone else you please: but if not, take care, my dear fellow, that you do not risk your greatest treasure on a toss of the dice.
The Purpose Driven Goal of the Babylon Mother of Harlots in the garden of Eden to Revelation 17 was to use lusted after fruits (Same as in Amos 8) as speakers, singers and instrument players. John calls the SORCERERS who HAD ONCE deceived the whole world.  they have been UNLEASHED from "hell" with Abaddon being the Leader and SPIRITUS of the Locusts: the locusts are the Muses for anyone who stops clappping and singing long enough to catch up with silly simon of 2,000 years agod.

Heredotus: Cyrus is told how to turn the CAPTIVES (converts) into WOMEN to neuter them so they could not rebel.

Grant, then, forgiveness to the Lydians, and to make sure of their never rebelling against thee, or alarming thee more,
send and forbid them to keep any weapons of war,
         command them
to wear tunics under their cloaks,
         and to put buskins upon their legs,

.........and make them bring up their sons to cithern-playing (Kitharizein),
          and
singing (psallein),
..........and shop-keeping (Hucksterism). [Corrupting the Word]
So wilt thou soon see them become WOMEN instead of men,
and there will be no more fear of their revolting from thee."

Any kind of performing music when Jesus told us to SPEAK that which is written INTENDS to bring glory and more "Authority" to THE Alpah Malel.

Croesus thought the Lydians would even so be better off than if they were sold for slaves, and therefore gave the above advice to Cyrus, knowing that, unless he brought forward some notable suggestion, he would not be able to persuade him to alter his mind. He was likewise afraid lest,after escaping the danger which now pressed, the Lydians at some future time might revolt from the Persians and so bring themselves to ruin.

Marcus in RECITING the Book: Moses RECITED the Songs

In fact, behind the criticisms of the epic recital often lie issues about the performance of gender and social status.

However, from the examples that I have just used, it is evident, I believe, which art of music I consider appropriate in the training of the orator and to what extent. Nevertheless, I think that I need to be more explicit in stating that the music which I prescribe is not the modern music which has been emasculated by the lascivious melodies of the effeminate stage and has to no small extent destroyed the amount of manly vigor that we still possessed. I refer rather to the music of old with which people used to sing the praises of brave men and which the brave themselves used to sing.

18 But above all the reading must be manly and combine dignity and charm;

The command from the wilderness onward was to PREACH the WORD by READING the Word.  Men never SANG to a patriarchal God.

it must be different from the reading of prose, for poetry is song and poets claim to be singersBut this fact does not justify degeneration into sing-song or the effeminate modulations now in vogue. There is an excellent saying on this point attributed to Gaius Caesar while he was still a boy:

"If you are singing, you sing badly; if you are reading, you sing."

In that regard, epic's position is parallel to that of rhetoric. Beginning with Aristotle's Rhetorica (1404a), critics of rhetorical performance have ascribed to lively delivery the same effect as that of acting. There is a persistent association between theatrics, bad rhetoric and effeminacy. Rhetoric was forever at pains to disentangle itself from unwanted associations with female deception and histrionic artbecause it was viewed as the art of socially weak women and slaves,
and
rhetoricians of all ages have assiduously fought against any trace of bodily and vocal practice associated with these groups.

15 12. Enders (1997) 253--78. Such gendering of aesthetic categories prevails not only in antiquity but appears also in Kant's distinction between the passive feminine beautiful and the active masculine sublime and in Rousseau's association of art and the theater with the feminine. I have in mind Kant's "The Beautiful and the Sublime" and "The Fair Sex" and Jean-Jacques Rousseau's "On Theater and Morals," in Kramnick (1995) 339--42, 580--86, 333--36.

I suggest that in the same way as the orator strives to distinguish himself from the realm of performance (canticum), so the public reader of epic is also confronted with the borderline between recitare and cantare.

Oratory initially modeled itself on the performance of serious poetry, and gradually tried to distinguish itself from the realm of song. As Habinek notes, "Oratory, perhaps because its performance context so closely resembles the occasions that call for public song, is carefully policed throughout its history to prevent its reverting to the musical incantation from which it--and the terminology for its study--evolved."


4.16.14 A Musical Praise Team or a Musical Worship team IS defacto Instrumental Music.  The songs refusing to "use that which is written for our learning" are written to be performed by musical instrument.  A musical instrument is a machine for doing hard work (legalism) mostly for making wary and creating the SHOCK AND AWE of religious spectacle.  Paul calls this a Lying Wonder of strongly deluded people who have rejected the Word or Logos as the Regulative Principle.  The Logos is the OPPOSITE of rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or acting.

Th. 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means:
        for that day shall not come,
        except there come a falling away first, [Apostasia rebellion against God]

        the son of perdition;  A new Judas.

The Judas  Bag was always attached to the flute case of men like Judas Sicarri  (or Assassin) who was prophesied to perform the following to try to defeat Jesus.

David Skidmore on Ephesians two the NEAR and FAR. David is one of the band at Winterfest. His sermon on the NEAR and FAR fails to read the whole chapter to see that those FAR AWAY are exactly those involved in the pagan musical festivals.  Grace through Faith is to save us FROM that crooked race.

Rick Atchley and Christ Seidman and the Instrumental Music Delusion

"The generation of Boomers has enough denominational loyalty that they’re going to find the least legalistic
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!

If you say that God commanded something He did not command The Spirit OF Christ in Jeremiah He calls it despising or Blasphemy.

This review is based on the 2009 statement by the "leaders" and elders and David Young's use of some Psalms and Revelation to prove that God COMMANDED INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC.  Of course, we know that the direct command was to SPEAK that which is written for our learning; and nothing that is so written is metrical and melody as "tunefulness" did not exist until the 19th century. Even then, melody is a "series of single tones."  The word PSALLO has never and can never meant musical melody. It is to despise God, Jesus or Paul to say that they did not know that if you wanted too even hit at musical melody there are several words none of which appear in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.

The Purpose Driven Church as adopted by apostate preachers is to use all of the hate words they can invent to make people believe that their old Church of Christ and its practices are just the tradition of untaught people trapped into something previle that HINDERS the gospel.  For instance:

The MANTRA which probably began with Rubel Shelly and the Jubilee plan to "restructure" all churches of Christ but was ignited by the NACC in their claimed "unity workshops." Anyone sell books or lectures would be flattered to be invited and agree that unity demanded that everyone IMPOSE what they call "Instrumental worship" which is condemned and associated with a gender-variant priesthood from Genesis (the Babylonian ANTI freedom movement c. BC 4000) to the lusted after fruits under the Babylon Mother of Harlots in Revelation 17f.  John calls the crafstmen or all STAFF sorcerers just like the original Mother Goddess worship in Babylon and says they will be cast alive into the lake of fire. The Spirit OF Christ laid it out in detail in Isaiah 30 which you don't need to reed to become a doctor of the law and be purpose driven according to Jesus 'to take away the key to knowledge.'  The historical and medically proven way to disable the rational or spiritual mind is music: it is derived from mystery which means "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter" as they musically mocked Jesus to the cross. This, too, was prophesied in Psalm 41.

THIS IS THE MARK OF THE PROSTITUTE CHURCH INTENDED TO DECEIVE THE ELECT BACK TO THE ORIGINAL BABYLON MOTHER OF HARLOTS ALSO WORSHIPPED IN THE JERUSALEM TEMPLE. If they work for a decade or two then the PLAN is to do an end run against the older people and subvert the youth.  However, all CIVIL society understood the PERSONA of men who sang and played instruments REFUSING to SPEAK that which is written for our LEARNING. Paul warned about the STAFF take over as corrupters of the Word and PARASITES.

X.Mem.1.6.13  Xen. Mem. 1.6.13

To this Socrates replied: “Antiphon, it is common opinion among us
        in regard to beauty and wisdom
                that there is an honourable
                and a shameful way of bestowing them.
        For to offer one's beauty for money to all comers is called prostitution;

        But we think it virtuous to become friendly with
              a lover who is known to be a man of honour.

        So is it with wisdom. Those who offer it to all comers for money
               are known as sophists, prostitutors of wisdom,

The ABROGATED duty of elders as Christ only ondained Pastor-Teachers.

        But we think that he who makes a friend of one whom he knows to be gifted
               by nature, and teaches him all the good he can,

               fulfils the duty of a citizen and a gentleman.

Instrumental Music in Worship  is a sin without redemption. The singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden wholly seduced Eve.  The Word is filled with warnings until Romans 17 when the old Babylon Mother of Harlots uses self-speakers, singers and instrument players: John called them SORCERERS and said they will be cast alive into the lake of fire.  He is Apollo, Abaddon or Apollyon and his musical worship team is the LOCUSTS which for the elect means the MUSES.  We have not liberty to be nice:

A Statement from the North Boulevard Elders and Preachers February 1, 2009
  1. If you say that God commanded or authorized the use of instruments when HIS WORD is to be PREACHED by being READ.
  2. And you say that those who never in recorded history were ignorant of the Word, the Persona and Effect of instruments are just IGNORANT traditionalists and legalists (RACA words)
  3. Then Christ of those who DESPISE the Word says that you blaspheme The Holy Spirit OF Christ in the prophets which identified the Civil-Military-Clergy as Robbers and Parasites and REPUDIATED all of the Musical Mocking.
The SOUNDS LIKE musical instruments is not the CAUSE of a terminal fall from grace but the SIGN or MARK of submitting to SORCERERS and the remedy says Jesus through John is that you will be or ARE being Cast Alive into the Lake of Fire.

Here is some of the definition of Lying Wonders and Blaspheming the Word of God from Genesis to Revelation.
Just your  HUMAN Tradition or Traditional 20 Times
Not submitting to Musical Discorders Imposing instruments caused CONTROVERSY 3  Times
Church suffers under ARCHAIC, OBSCURE, OR IRRELEVANT styles, methods or traditions
We need to use music to achieve UNITY 14 times according to John 17
If you REJECT using "machines for making wary" you are JUDGING those who IMPOSE. 20 TIMES
If WE IMPOSE instruments it will be in the name of PEACE 2 times
People who reject instruments is just based Style or Styles 13 Times
This is just their Method or Methods 10 Times
Need to change to speaking INTELLIGIBLY in the changing world 2 Times
They are Legalistic and and Judgmental 1 Time
Culture changes WE need to CHANGE 6 TIMES
Not using Instrumennts is just their Customs 2
WE need A NEW Language to explain the Spirit OF Christ 9 Times
People who reject instruments are Just defending THEIR Heritage 2
Freedom 22 Times--is something WE give YOU.
Not using instrumental noise is Just your Opinions 12 Times
People who reject instruments are Pharisee 2 times
WE offer Continuity with the Past 2 but IN ADDITION will offer instruments (based on this common White Paper from the NACC] 8 Times This is the Rick Atchley Both-And outrage
People who reject instruments are JUDGING others 12 Times
Not adding instruments may Eclipse the WORD Hinder the gospel
This will be CHALENGING [Discording)  4 Timess but WE will use GRADUALISM (The Serpent in Genesis uses twisting songs to gradually creep). It will be PAINFUL
  1. If you say that Churches of Christ which did not use INSTRUMENTS during the School of the Word from the Wilderness onwwars was just and evil tradition.
  2. And from Genesis to Revelation musical machines are said to have been brought by Lucifer (ZOE) into the garden of Eden and resulted in some sexual hanky panky to REVELATION when the Babylon mother of harlot rises again and ALL of her religious STAFF are called sorcerers and will be cast alive into the Lake of Fire.
  3. Then Christ in Jeremiah 23 says that you despise the Word and the Latin word is BLASPHEME
The VOW sworn to: Our desire to be a biblical church is so strong that none of us,
        including any elder or preacher, would want to remain in the North Boulevard congregation
        if the North Boulevard church were knowingly and deliberately to abandon its biblical foundations.

That, is of course, part of the psychological violence like claiming a SPIRIT is leading you. That is to make you believe that if you QUESTION the newly annointed then YOU are fighting against God.  Then, probably knowing better since they are willing to SOW DISCORD in order to get their way, they CLAIM that the inclusive and exclusive PATTERN defined by Christ for the Church in the Wilderness, in the Prophets and especially by Jesus, Paul, Peter and Jude is now ARCHAIC and OBSCURE.

Not a single leader at North Boulevard is willing to
        see the congregation or the Lord’s church at large SUFFER under
        ever-increasingly archaic, obscure, or irrelevant
styles , methods, or traditions
        just because our fathers practiced those same 
styles, methods, or traditions

John used the Sophia and Logos concept known and defined in the Greek Classics and their understanding of the ELOHIM casting down the heavens and earth, to define TWO RACES of manking.

The WORLD for which Jesus would not Pray, the Wise or SOPHISTS (Speakers, singers instrument players) from which God HIDES himself.  Plato speaking of the symposium, the Crooked Race or getting Fluted Down with Wine notes.  § i. Summary of the Argument.


Not till they are half-way through the meal does Socrates appear; and Agathon rallies him on his devotion to sophia. The proposal of Pausanias to restrict the potations, in view of yesterday's banquet, and that of Eryximachus to dismiss the flute-girl and amuse themselves by logoi, are unanimously agreed to.

THIS IS THE ONLY DEFINITION OF LEGALISM or the Laws of Rhetoric, Singing, Playing instruments or perverted love.

(1) In all Greek states except Athens the nomos is simple, either (a) approving paederastia, as in Elis and Boeotia; or (b) condemning it, as in Ionia and states subject to barbarian rule, where it is held to foster a dangerous spirit of independence (e.g. Harmodius and Aristogiton).

(2) At Athens the nomos is complex. (a) Eros is approved, and its excesses condoned, when directed towards superior youths approaching manhood. (b) It appears to be condemned, in so far as parents forbid their boys to hold converse with “erastae.” The explanation of this ambiguous attitude must be sought in the principle laid down above, that the moral quality of an act depends upon the conditions of its performance. The Athenian nomos provides a test for distinguishing between good and bad forms of Eros: the test of time shows whether or not the right motive (desire for aretē self-pleasure romans 15) actuates both the lover and his object. This motive alone justifies all erotic pursuits and surrenders, even mutual deception: hence we conclude that kalon aretēs heneka kharizesthai. [Kharis, GRACE-CENTERED: erotic love to another male]

And the LOGOS or the WORD as God's Regulative principle which is the OPPOSITE of rhetoric, singing, playing instruments, clapping, hugging or kissing.

SEE HOW THE WORD OR LOGOS MARKS THE ELDERS AND LEADER.

When you spread the RACA charges aginst those who know that church is A School of Christ and has no STAFF called PARASITES in all pagan religions you are BLASPHEMING the Spirit of God. When you IMPOSE instruments that is the SIGN or semion of God STRIKING THE FLAG OF THE EKKLESIA or Church and removing the LAMPS.

See Jeremiah 23 and Christ's CENI

Jeremiah 23:21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran:
        I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
Jeremiah 23:22 But if they had stood in my counsel,
        and had caused my people to hear my WORDS,
        then they should have turned them from their evil way,
        and from the evil of their doings.
Jeremiah 23:23 Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?
Jeremiah 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD.
        Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.
Jeremiah 23:25 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name,
        saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
Jeremiah 23:26 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;
Jeremiah 23:27 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.
Jeremiah 23:28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream;
        and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully.
        What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.
Jeremiah 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD;
        and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?
Jeremiah 23:30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD,
        that steal my words every one from his neighbour.
Jeremiah 23:31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD,
        that use their tongues, and say, He saith.

Their tongues work really well if you have that certain PERSONA.  They know but you are not to know that there is no command, example or remote inference of the GODLY PEOPLE who ever sang congregationaly with or without instruments or "machines for doing hard work mostly in making war or creating the shock and awe of religious spectacles to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."

THE LEADERSHIP:  The WE versus the YOU will BOIL the frogs SLOWLY
We commit to seeking to give the church adequate explanation
        for changes we make 
        and to giving the church fair time to process the changes.

We commit to listening to the church as it seeks to understand
        what the leadership at North Boulevard is doing.

We will try to work slowly and wisely so as to avoid disorder, disunity,
        and needless confusion as we try to speak the Gospel in a world
        with multiple opinions and tastes
Alexander Hislop and many others show how ERROR must always be introduced gradually so the fleecees do not flee;

We know, from the statements in Job, that among patriarchal tribes that had nothing whatever to do with Mosaic institutions, but which adhered to the pure faith of the patriarchs, idolatry in any shape was held to be a crime, to be visited with signal and summary punishment on the heads of those who practised it.

"If I beheld the sun," said Job, "when it shined, or the moon walking in brightness; and my heart hath been secretly enticed, and * my mouth hath kissed my hand; this also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge; for I should have denied the God that is above" (Job 31:26-28).

Now if this was the case in Job's day, much more must it have been the case at the earlier period when the Mysteries were instituted. It was a matter, therefore, of necessity, if idolatry were to be brought in, and especially such foul idolatry as the Babylonian system contained in its bosom, that it should be done stealthily and in secret. *

* It will be seen by-and-by what cogent reason there was, in point of fact, for the profoundest secrecy in the matter. See Chapter II

Even though introduced by the hand of power, it might have produced a revulsion,
and violent attempts might have been made by the uncorrupted portion of mankind to
put it down; and at all events,
if it had appeared at once in all its hideousness, it would have alarmed the consciences of men, and defeated the very object in view.

That object was to bind all mankind in blind and absolute submission to a hierarchy entirely dependent on the sovereigns of Babylon. In the carrying out of this scheme, all knowledge, sacred and profane, came to be monopolised by the priesthood,
who
dealt it out to those who were initiated in the "Mysteries" exactly as they saw fit, according as the interests of the grand system of spiritual despotism they had to administer might seem to require.<>

Thus the people, wherever the Babylonian system spread, were
bound neck and heel to the priests.
The
priests were the only depositaries of religious knowledge; they only had the true tradition by which the writs and symbols of the public religion could be interpreted; and without blind and implicit submission to them, what was necessary for salvation could not be known.
Making sermons along with singing as an ACT to support the views of the preacher was imposed only long after Constantine invited pagan priests to become bishops and ACCEPT PAY which was unseemly to the poor preachers going out and teaching under the name Church of Christ.  That is why being enraptured by their own words they don't grasp that the Spirit OF Christ defined the church both inclusively and exclusively: If they do not speak according to the law and testimony (in the prophests) it is because THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM. That is why they cannot read BLACK text on BROWN paper:
Mark me, and be astonished, and lay your hand upon your mouth Job 21:5 .
Even when I remember I am
afraid, and trembling taketh hold on my flesh. Job 21:6
Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty in power? Job 21:7

Their seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes. Job 21:8
Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of God upon them. Job 21:9
Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; their cow calveth, and casteth not her calf. Job 21:10
They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance. Job 21:11
They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the organ. Job 21:12
They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave. Job 21:13

Note the THEREFORE:
Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways. Job 21:14
What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him? Job 21:15

This is what Jesus identifies as the HYPOCRITES pointing to Isaiah and also to Ezekiel 33. There, rhetorical speaking, singing or playing instruments are MARKS of people who are collecting money or just being entertained.
Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me. Job 21:16

How oft is the candle of the wicked put out and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger. Job 21:17

They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away. Job 21:18
"It (the pipe meaning to love passionately) was apparently a secular instrument and is never listed in the temple orchestra; only in Ps. 150:4 it is mentioned in a religious (but not ritual) function. Its ethos was not blameless at all, as we see from Genesis Rabbah 50:

"The angels said to Lot: There are players of the pipe (organ) in the country, hence it ought to be destroyed. Its rabbinical identification with the aboda, the flute of the notorious Syrian bayaderes, emphasizes the erotic element which already the Hebrew name suggests. (Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible, p. 460, Abingdon).

This instrumental music in worship or seduction was revealed through Jubal (or Jubal as Satan's change agent) but he had no authority to "handle" them to overpower the people with instruments and musical worship teams:

And his brothers name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle (meaning without authority) the harp and organ. Ge.4:21

WE are not God and WE get no opinions to fit OUR tastes.  In Romans 14 warning about the three major sects in Rome, OUTLAWED doubtful disputations or YOUR OPINIONS which do not edify meaning EDUCATE. The ORPHICS were vegetarians or Bean Eaters and so did not go to the old temples for their DIET.'

-Commentary on Vergil, Aeneid. book 6, line 645.

[645]  Orpheus was one of the mythical fathers of song, and his name was associated with revelations about the lower world, supposed to be preserved by secret societies (Dict. M. Orpheus), so that he is naturally made the harper who plays while the blessed spirits dance and sing. He is called `sacerdos,' as in Hor. A. P. 391 he is called sacer interpresque deorum. The long robe was characteristic of musicians, as Cerda shows, comp. Prop. 3. 23. 16, Pythius in longa carmina veste sonat (of the statue of Apollo in the Palatine temple), and also Hor. A. P. 215, Ov. F. 6. 654, 688, where the long robes of the `tibicines' are mentioned and accounted for. `Cum veste' above v. 359. Elsewhere we have `in veste,' as 12. 169, puraque in veste sacerdos.

Christ in the prophets condemned the Civil-Military-Priestly complex as Robbers and Parasites.  And yet, the musical bandites appeal to the Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned Levites for their "instrumental authority."
John 10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep,
        he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
John 10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
John 10:6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
John 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
John 10:8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
         I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
John 10:12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not,
        seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep,
        and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
John 10:13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
Isaiah 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement;
        when the overflowing scourge shall pass through,
        it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
Isaiah 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled,
        and your agreement with hell shall not stand;

Jesus died to remove the Laded Burden (religious songs) along with the BURDEN LADERS. A Church of Christ has elders and deacons both able to TEACH that which has been taught.  It has no massive STAFF replacing the deacons with women or defacto DEACONESSES.  All religious craftsmen such as the Levite instrument players called SORCERERS were defined by the Greek word PARASITE.

Romans 14:1 Him that is weak in THE faith receive ye,
        but not to doubtful disputations.

The weak are to be taught and do NOT get to impose their weakness such as instrumental music which from Genesis to Revelation is the CAUSE or RESULT of being rejected by God and marked by the sounds of wind, string and percussion instruments as being driven by God into "hell."

1Corinthians 14:19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.

        I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

This is not speaking as in the command to SPEAK one to another to teach and comfort. Sounding brass and tinkling cymbals here are identifying marks of people who have NO LOVE. Even if they COULD speak all of the languages in the world there would be no love. The command is to SPEAK or LOGOS the Word of Christ which is the opposite of rhetoric, singing or playing instruments. Speaking in the tongues of angels was IN FACT making music in tongues.  Tongues and Instruments INTEND to lull people to sleep with THE LOCUSTS OF REVELATION.

It may help us to understand that the Greek word lelein refers primarily to utterance rather than to meaningful conversation. The term is used repeatedly in chapter 14 to describe speaking in tongues. Phrynichus, the ancient dictionarian, defined the term as 'to talk nonsense'.

The word is used of gossip, prattling, babbling, animal sounds, and musical instruments. During the classical period, it usually was employed in a contemptuous sense. Debrunner, writing in the Kittle-Friedrich Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, states 'Lalein can also be used quite objectively of speech when there is reference to sound rather than than meaning. 'To what kind of utterance can St. Paul refer? There were many types of vocalization in ecstatic rites.

They have been heard to utter (different voices of equal strength, or with great diversity and inequality) in tones that alternated with silence; and again in other cases harmonious crescendo or dimenuendo of tone, and in still other cases other kinds of utterance.

[195] Full often have I argued out this subject with others. For there are those who say, there is more bad than good in human nature; but I hold a contrary view, that good over bad predominates in man, [200] for if it were not so, we should not exist. He has my praise,
        whichever god brought us to live by rule from chaos and from brutishness,
        first by implanting reason, and next by giving us a tongue to declare our thoughts,
        so as to know the meaning of what is said..

And where sight fails us and our knowledge is not sure, the seer foretells by gazing on the flame, by reading signs in folds of entrails, or by divination from the flight of birds.
        Are we not then too proud, when heaven has made such [215] preparation for our life,
                 not to be content with it?
        But our presumption seeks to lord it over heaven,
                 and in the pride of our hearts we think we are wiser than the gods.

Romans 15:6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The only ACTOR is a mature elder who PREACHES the Word by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine.  The passage was READ and SPOKEN with one mind and one mouth. This edifies and is a mutual confession of Jesus Christ instead of WORSHIPING the STAFF.

The Sabbath or REST was never called A Day of Worship: Rest means rest as in R.E.S.T.  Jesus died to give us REST and said that the kingdom does not come wirh observation meaning Religious OBSERVATIONS.  Christ defined A School of the Word of God reading and rehearsing on the REST DAY which has no STAFF other than the elder who PREACHED the Word by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine.  That is a Direct Command, Approved examples and necessary inference for a Christian who is a Disciple who is a Student of "that which is written for our learning." If you build an institution that goes beyond a School (only) of the Word (only) then you cannot be a Christian or Disciple teaching what HE commanded to be taught.

After the people REFUSED to listen to God's Word speaking the only spiritual Covenant which God in Christ made to Abraham, God spoke it to Moses whom the people demanded as a MEDIATOR (senior pastor).  In Exodus God was not SILENT but the people refused to LISTEN.

The PERSONA as Paul in Romans 1 defined the results of refusing to keep the REST day is historical proof of a Gender Bent Priesthood:

Matthew 27:29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head,
        and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him,
        and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
Matthew 27:28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
Matthew 27:31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him,
        and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.

They don't want you to catch on to the fact that people leaven churches of Christ because are are shamed and disgusted with preachers who have been trained as RHETORICIANS (A hypocrite), singer or actor to ATTRACT those of like persona.   Up to half of a congregation quickly flees because they don't appreciate the persona repoacing the reverent old preachers who knew not to let his arms fly around.  Furthermore, because many are Disciples or Bible readers they leave in disgust when they see the end-time fulfillment defined on Babylonian Tablets, the Prophets where Christ defined REST as excluding seeking your own pleasure or even speaking your own words.   The false preachers claim that God was silent or simply not smart enough to progress with with the CHANGED CULTURE but it is the case that when you tamper with the Word and heap on all of the corrupters of the Word or "sellers oflearning at retail" which word is defined as prostitution God sends you STRONG DELUSIONS that you believe your own lies because Mount Sinai proves that musical PLAY on the REST day was a sin without redemption.  The MARKS of lying wonders is performing religious "operations" to which Jesus said "the kingdom does not come."

There has been a sudden rise in men willing to "infiltrate and divert" non-instrumental Churches of Christ intending to "turn YOUR school of the Word into THEIR "theater for holy entertainment.

Isoc. 6 64 For by revolting from us they have gained nothing of what they anticipated; on the contrary, they have got just the opposite of freedom; for having slain the best of their citizens, they are now in the power of the worst; instead of securing self-government, they have been plunged into misgovernment of many terrible kinds;

Is not this the life of such a one?” “It is this,” he said. “And if,” I said, “there are only a few of this kind in a city,

Aristot. Rh. 3.6.3 [3] Use metaphors and epithets by way of illustration, taking care, however, to avoid what is too poetical. Aristot. Rh. 3.6.7   Poets also make use of this in inventing words, as a melody "without strings" or "without the lyre"; for they employ epithets from negations, a course which is approved in proportional metaphors, as for instance, to say that the sound of the trumpet is a melody without the lyre.

-[3. 8. 1 The form of diction should be neither metrical nor without rhythm. If it is metrical, it lacks persuasiveness, for it appears artificial, and at the same time it distracts the hearer's attention, since it sets him on the watch for the recurrence of such and such a cadence.

To that end, Jesus SPOKE what the father BREATHED (spirit) WITHOUT METRON which most often means "WITHOUT METER OR MELODY." no one COULD sing any of the commanded text until after the Reformation

       instead of seeking to avoid wrong-doing, do the wrong and
then try to make it good.

That's what Russ means (maybe without knowing it) when he speaks of being saved by grace through fatih. The GRACE mantra is a confession that WE ARE GOING TO SOW DISCORD and offend as many as we can but GRACE is going to cover it up. False! Grace "appeared teaching" us to deny wha Russ Adcox is working just too hard to impose.

Ask yourself whether a person can lie about all of the "instrument" passages knowing that he is going to sow discord and CONVINCE a large group people that he really IS Jesus Christ when he claims that you have made him the Authoratative Teacher

I will keep all of the comments personal

STEPHEN GOT MURDERERED BECAUSE HE WARNED THAT THE MUSICAL IDOLATRY AT MOUNT SINAI PROVES THAT GOD COMMANDED NEITHER KING, KINGDOM, TEMPLE, ANIMAL SLAUGHTER OR LEVITES PERFORMING SORCERY WITH INSTRUMENTS:

And those trying to FORCE everyone to be marked by music say that Scripture is silent: God left that up to USE to make decisions for YOU.

Acts 7:41 And they made a calf in those days,
        and offered sacrifice unto the idol,
        and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.

And the musical mockers insist that you WAVE AND CLAP YOUR HANDS as a way to HISS the Loser.

"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).

This is the Crooked Race we are warned to save ourselves FROM.
Pind. I. 7   In which of the local glories of the past, divinely blessed Thebe, did you most delight your spirit? Was it when you raised to eminence the one seated beside Demeter of the clashing bronze cymbals, flowing-haired [5] Dionysus? Or when you received, as a snow-shower of gold in the middle of the night, the greatest of the gods, when he stood in the doorway of Amphitryon, and then went in to the wife to beget Heracles?

But since ancient grace sleeps, and mortals are forgetful of whatever does not reach the highest bloom of skillful song, joined to glorious streams of words, [20] then begin the victory procession with a sweet-singing hymn for Strepsiades;

Aristoph. Ach. 5 I was in ecstasy and I love the Knights for this deed; ‘it is an honour to Greece.’ But the day when I was impatiently awaiting a piece by Aeschylus, what tragic despair it caused me when the herald called, “Theognis, introduce your Chorus!” Just imagine how this blow struck straight at my heart!

Xen. Sym. 7.5 However, these questions also fail to promote the same object that wine does; but if the young people were to have a flute accompaniment and dance figures depicting the Graces, the Horae, and the Nymphs, I believe that they would be far less wearied themselves and that the charms of the banquet would be greatly enhanced.”

Acts 7:42 Then God turned,
        and gave them up to worship the host of heaven;
 
        as it is written in the book of the prophets,
        O ye house of Israel,  have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices
        by the space of forty years in the wilderness?
Acts 7:43 Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch
        and the star of your god Remphan, 
        figures which ye made to worship them: 
        and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.

God turned the Israelites over to worship the starry host BECAUSE of instrumental NOISE (never music) in the Shock and Awe of the Abaddon or Apollyon and Dionysus (new wineskins mark) rituals they brought in with them as ABOMINATIONS from Egypt.  Revelation 17 proves that the same Babylon Mother of Harlots will use "lusted after fruits" after Apollyon-Abaddon is UNLEASHED from "hell" along with the MUSES as his musical worship team. Abaddon-Apollyon or his spiritus indwells the muses history knew as dirty adulteresses and THE SHEPHERDESSES of all effeminate worship.  In Revelation 18 John identifies the CRAFTSMEN which includes any and all STAFF eating up the living of the widows as preachers who do NOT PREACH by READING the Word (Logos, Regulative principle) for Comfort and Learning.  John says they are SORCERERS who HAD once deceived the whole world and they will be or ARE BEING Cast alive into the Lake of Fire.  Christ in the PROPHETIC TYPE in Isaiah 30 says that the sounds of the wind, string and percussion instruments are the MARK of God driving His enemies into "hell."

Christ warns that the King-Queen of Tyre and Babylon are LUCIFER'S who invaded the Garden of Eden as a singing and harp-playing prostitute.

The end time Queen or Mother "women and BOYS ruling over you" says that her priests are "Lusted after Fruits." Christ in Amos 8 warns of the music in what they claimed as holy spaces, identified them as Baskets of Summer Fruits: this is the DOGS Paul outlawed in Philippians 3 or Catamites.

Why would elders allow themselves to restore the Laded Burden (musical performance) and Burden Laders: if Christ gave your church the gift of APT elders their job is to EXPEL all of the cunning craftsmen or Sophists (speakers, singers, instrument players SO THAT the body of Christ can be UNITED without the DIVERSITY so lusted after.  Paul and Peter ALWAYS expel people like the Priests (preachers) and Levites (instrument players) or ANY staff replacing the elders and deacons. In all religious institutions they were called PARASITES: that included the prophesying of Miriam and the Levites who performed the role of the Primary Parasites in the Infant-burning religion in Egypt and Jerusalem.
Revelation 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours,
        which are the prayers [spoken hymns] of saints.

Paul said of God: "In Him we live, move and have our being." Heaven simply means up in the air."
Revelation 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out:
        and I will write upon him the name of my God,
        and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem,
        which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem,
        coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Revelation 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain,
        and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
Revelation 14:1 And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion,
        and with him a hundred and forty and four thousand,
        having his name, and the name of his Father,

Revelation 14:2 And I heard a voice from heaven,

Eur. Med. 197 You would be right to call men of old foolish, not at all wise:  for while they invented songs for festivities, banquets, and dinners and added pleasant sounds to human life, [195] no one discovered how to put an end to mortals' bitter griefs with music and song sung to the lyre. It is because of these griefs that deaths and terrible disasters overthrow houses. It would have been a gain for mortals [200] to cure these ills by song. Where there are feasts of plenty, why do they raise the loud song to no purpose? The abundance of the feast at hand provides mortals with its own pleasure.Exit Nurse into the house.

Plat. Rep. 398a who was capable by his cunning of assuming every kind of shape and imitating all things should arrive in our city, bringing with himself the poems which he wished to exhibit, we should fall down and worship him as a holy and wondrous and delightful creature, but should say to him that there is no man of that kind among us in our city, nor is it lawful for such a man to arise among us, and we should send him away to another city, after pouring myrrh down over his head and crowning him with fillets of wool, but we ourselves, for our souls' good, should continue to employ  [398b] the more austere and less delightful poet and tale-teller, who would imitate the diction of the good man and would tell his tale in the patterns which we prescribed in the beginning, when we set out to educate our soldiers.” “We certainly should do that if it rested with us.” “And now, my friend,” said I, “we may say that we have completely finished the part of music that concerns speeches and tales. For we have set forth what is to be said and how it is to be said.” “I think so too,” he replied.

When people do not respect "that which is written for our learning" God sends them strong delusions that they believe their own lies and are damned: Their LYING WONDERS consists of religious observations devoted to the work of human hands and theatrics. 398b] the more austere and less delightful poet and tale-teller, who would imitate the diction of the good man and would tell his tale in the patterns which we prescribed in the beginning, when we set out to educate our soldiers.” “We certainly should do that if it rested with us.” “And now, my friend,” said I, “we may say that we have completely finished the part of music that concerns speeches and tales.

That wouldn't get you a "musical worship minister" which is a blasphemous concept when Jesus said that worship is IN SPIRIT as a place contrasted to on Gerezim or Zion (as places).  Paul warned that worship must be IN THE SPIRIT (the Word) and not IN THE FLESH.  The Dogs and Concision were CYNICS who 'howled' out the old style praise singing seeking a mate for the night.  The dogs which compassed Jesus about before they musically mocked him and stripped him were called Catamites.

The Ekklesia or Synagogue was an assembly of Disciples for mutually confessing God by "using one mind and one mouth to speak that which is written for out learning." The elders and deacons as the Teachers and vocational ministers were commanded to "teach that which has been taught and cast out anyone who disputes that which has been taught."

No one PLAYS harps: having or holding means to Apprehend the Word of God
Revelation 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying,
We are told the CONTENT of the song which they SAID or cantillated: We are told not to ADD to that content. Therefore, to use this as a PATTERN to replace the School (only) of the Word (only) brings down the curse of God and proves that the elders have no light in them (Isaiah 8:20).

The SERPENT or BEASTIA was according to the Spirit OF Christ "the singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden.

The end time prophecy at the beginning of A NEW DAY was the revival of the original Babylon mother of Harlots (Revelation 17). She USES the same "lusted after fruits" (same as in Genesis and Amos 8) as preachers, singers, instrument players and TEKNE or any religious laded burden always called PARASITES as a name given to all sacrificial instrument players who performed as SORCERERS after God abandoned Israel BECAUSE of instrumental idolatry at Mount sinal.

The Mark of the Beast is musical performance of a sudden New Style of Music and Drama. The MARK in Revelation 18 is of the Lusted after Fruits (see Amos 8) performing as speakmiers, singers, instrument players. It includes the TECHNE or Craftsmen added as STAFF called PARASITES in Babylon, Jerusalem called SODOM and the prophesied end time.  After Israel fell into instrumental idolatry of the Egyptian trinity at Mount Sinai God removed His grace and abandoned them to worship the starry host. He gave them kings (senior worship leaders) in His anger to carry out the captivity and death sentence in Babylon. 

A NEW DAY began in the year 2000 because Moses wrote a history of the WARN between musical ignorance (darkness) and the WORD as enlightenment. Jesus is the ONLY light in the world and He repudiated all of the musical performers as women or the effeminate.
THERE WILL BE NO DIVERSITY OF PEOPLE IN HEAVEN: REVELATION SPEAKS OF SOUNDS OF JUDGMENT WARNING THE LIVING TO PREACH THE GOSPEL. ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED CAN UNDERSTAND THE WORD AND ONLY THEY WILL BE IN HEAVEN.

The MARK of Cain is His name meaning A Musical Note: Jubal handled all of the musical instruments meaning without authority and in a sexual sense.  Music was always to steal from the poor (tithes and offerings) so that the priests as agents of the gods in Babylon and Jerusalem could be fed.

Jesus doesn't pray for the WORLD'S MULTITUDE and said that His Disciples (students and no ritualists) are NOT OF the World so you cannot hustle the world INTO the church: a true evangelist is not attached and is commanded to go and make disciples and suffer and die.

1Peter 1:1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia,
        Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
1Peter 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,
        through sanctification of the Spirit, [A holy spirit lets you read BLACK text on BROWN paper.]
        unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ:
        Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

Many (most, multitudes) are called or invited but FEW are chosen or ELECTED.  Only those who are called OUT OF THE WORLD and INTO the Church of Christ are washed with water INTO the Word or Into the School of Christ. A Church of Christ does not do "worship" services.

1Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1Peter 1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
1Peter 1:5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
1Peter 1:6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be,
        ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
1Peter 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
1Peter 1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
1Peter 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
1Peter 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Peter 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.


A Church of Christ is built upon or EDUCATED by the Prophets and Apostles ONLY because Christ breathed into the prophets and Jesus made these prophecies more certain. You are NOT permitted private interpretation of FURTHER EXPOUNDING.  Paul said that you CORRUPT the Word meaning "selling the word at retail" which word means adultery or prostitution.

1Peter 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
1Peter 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
1Peter 1:14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
1Peter 1:15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
1Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
1Peter 1:17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:
1Peter 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
1Peter 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
1Peter 1:20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
1Peter 1:21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
1Peter 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls
        in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren,
        see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
1Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible,
        by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.


NO STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS. Culture gives no one the right to invent a NEW RESOURCE.

1Peter 1:24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
1Peter 1:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.


Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was
         as it were of a trumpet talking with me;
        which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

Revelation 5 like all of the Sounds Like Harps (to terrorize) are warnings of IMPENDING JUDGEMENT and the Command to the LIVING is to Preach the gospel to ALL nations.

Revelation 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne
        a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
Revelation 5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice,
        Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
Revelation 5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
Revelation 5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
Revelation 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold,
         the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David,
        hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.


Revelation 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

Rev. 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the righthand of him that sat upon the throne.
Rev. 5:8 And when he had taken the book,
        the four beasts and four and twenty elders
        fell down before the Lamb,
        having [holding] every one of them harps,
        and golden vials full of odours,
                which are the prayers of saints.

X.Smp.2.2 Xenophon, Symposium  II. When the tables had been removed and the guests had poured a libation and sung a hymn, there entered a man from Syracuse, to give them an evening's merriment. He had with him a fine flute-girl, a dancing-girl--one of those skilled in acrobatic tricks,--and a very handsome boy, who was expert at playing the cither and at dancing; the Syracusan made money by exhibiting their performances as a spectacle. [2] They now played for the assemblage, the flute-girl on the flute, the boy on the cither; and it was agreed that both furnished capital amusement.

WHEN JESUS SPEAKS WE MUST FALL IN REVERENCE AND GODLY FEAR.
The direct command is to SPEAK that which is written.
The EFFECT for the baptized believer is that the BOOK
causes the heart strings to vibrate in sympathy with God's movement. 

The Spirit of Christ writes EXACTLY what He defines INCLUSIVELY AND EXCLUSIVELY. If you ADD to this then the PLAGUES will be added to you.

NO ONE PLAYS LITERAL HARPS IN HEAVEN

Revelation 5:9-10 And they sung a new song, saying,
Thou art worthy to take the book,
and to open the seals thereof:
for  thou wast slain,
and hast redeemed us to God
by thy blood
out of every kindred,
and tongue, and people, and nation;
And hast made us unto our God
kings and priests:
and we shall reign on the earth.
Ephesians 4, contrary to the elders, says that God gave APT elders to SILENCE all of the Cunning Craftsmen or SOPHISTS which are preachers, singers, instrument players, actors, dancers, or clappers which in Hebrew means VOMIT and intends to TAUNT the Loser this being Jesus as the ONLY DEACON who is THE MINISTERS of the Word.

That does not give David Young or the elders anything: a member of the Church of Christ can "come boldly before the throne of Grace" without a mediating priest, preacher, elder or musician. 
 
Revelation 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne
        and the beasts and the elders:
        and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

Plut. Per. 13 "So fond of artists who made their living" Then first did Pericles, so fond of honor was he, get a decree passed that a musical contest be held as part of the Panathenaic festival.

[this is legalism] These musical contests were witnessed, both then and thereafter, in the Odeum

Plato Republic 3 True, he said. 
And therefore when any one of these pantomimic gentlemen, who are so clever that they can imitate anything, comes to us, and makes a proposal to exhibit himself and his poetry, we will fall down and worship him as a sweet and holy and wonderful being; but we must also inform him that in our State such as he are not permitted to exist; the law will not allow them.
        And so when we have anointed him with myrrh,
        and set a garland of wool upon his head, we shall send him away to another city.
For we mean to employ for our souls' health the rougher and severer poet or story-teller, who will imitate the style of the virtuous only, and will follow those models which we prescribed at first when we began the education of our soldiers.

The ELDERS and the BEASTS are forced to SUBMIT and stop taking the honor and glory:

WE REIGN WITH CHRIST NOW AND HE SAYS HOLD THE MUSIC! Ephesians 5
  1. No man could read and loose the seals of the Word of God--the seven spirits OF God.
  2. To qualify they must HOLD the harp of God: heart strings will vibrate back only what they hear from the ONE with the right to READ the Book and strike the heart string with His words.  Isaiah 55 says that we must RETURN the water of the Word like the water cycle. Isaiah 58 says we must not speak our own words.
  3. Paul made it clear: It is the spirit or mind which must vibrate WHEN we speak that which is written with one MIND and one MOUTH.
  4. This is a common literary figure.
  5. That is one of the MARKS so that when they lie about the Words of Jesus Christ and impose musical instruments their intent is to shut the mouth of Jesus and take you captive for Satan.

 See Revelation 5 with some links probably needing updated.

"An evil is in the professed camp of the Lord, so gross in its impudence, that the most shortsighted can hardly fail to notice it during the past few years. It has developed at an abnormal rate, even for evil. It has worked like leaven until the whole lump ferments. 

The devil has seldom done a cleverer thing than hinting to the church that part of their mission is to provide entertainment for the people, with a view to winning them.

"From speaking out as the Puritans did, the church has gradually toned down her testimony, then winked at and excused the frivolities of the day. Then she tolerated them in her borders.

Now she has adopted them under the plea of reaching the masses.

"In vain will the Epistles be searched to find any trace of this gospel of amusement! Their message is, "Come out, keep out, keep clean out!" Anything approaching fooling is conspicuous by its absence.

They had boundless confidence in the gospel and employed no other weapon.

"After Peter and John were locked up for preaching, the church had a prayer meeting but they did not pray, "Lord grant unto thy servants that by a wise and discriminating use of innocent recreation we may show these people how happy we are." If they ceased not from preaching Christ, they had not time for arranging entertainments. Scattered by persecution, they went everywhere preaching the gospel. They turned the world upside down (Acts 17:6). That is the only difference!

Lord, clear the church of all the rot and rubbish the devil has imposed on her, and bring us back to apostolic methods.

"Lastly, the mission of amusement fails to effect the end desired. It works havoc among young converts. Let the careless and scoffers, who thank God because the church met them halfway, speak and testify.

"Let the heavy laden who found peace through the concert not keep silent! Let the drunkard to whom the dramatic entertainment has been God's link in the chain of the conversion, stand up!

"There are none to answer. The mission of amusement produces no converts. The need of the hour for today's ministry is believing scholarship joined with earnest spirituality, the one springing from the other as fruit from the root. The need is biblical doctrine, so understood and felt, that it sets men on fire. Charles Haddon Spurgeon 1834-1892


Revelation 5:12 Saying with a loud voice,
        Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
        to receive power, and riches, and wisdom
        and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

In Matthew 23 Jesus said that truth had been hidden in parables from the foundation of the World. He didn't pray for the WORLD and said that God HID from the wise or sophists: preachers, singers, instrument players, actors or dancers which is involved in the MUSIC concept.

Revelation 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven,
        and on the earth, and under the earth,
        and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them,
        heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power,
        be unto him that sitteth upon the throne,
        and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

Revelation 5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen.
        And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him
        that liveth for ever and ever.

THE HARPS ALWAYS A PRELUDE OFJUDGMENT TO THE RHETORICIANS, SINGERS, INSTRUMENT PLAYERS AND ACTORS:

Rev 6:1  And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
Rev 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse:
        and his name that sat on him was Death,
        and Hell followed with him.
        And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth,
        to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death,
        and with the beasts of the earth.

Rev 6:9  And when he had opened the fifth seal,
        I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the WORD of God,
        and for the testimony which they held:

Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true,
         dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

Rev 6:11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

Rev 6:13  And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

Revelation 6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man,
        hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
Revelation 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks,
        Fall on us, and hide us from the face
        of him that sitteth on the throne,
        and from the wrath of the Lamb:

Revelation 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
