Isaiah 55

The Spirit that flows out of believers is the free water of the Word: it cannot be sold or bought.

Assuming that Jesus was promising that he and others would be the source of the Holy Spirit as a "person" one writer noted:

"John 7:37 again  ...Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, If anyone is thirsty let him come to me and drink. "Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him, By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not been glorified.

Jesus of Nazareth was made to be both Lord and Christ: because of His faithful articulating the Word of God the Father, after He was glorified He was given the promise or evangelistic role as The Holy Spirit.  As God's BREATH or spirit caused Jesus to speak the very words of God while He was in the flesh, Jesus continued to be the ANOTHER Comforting Holy Spirit as king over His sole rulership of His kingdom or church of Christ.
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
         that God [

        whom ye have crucified, both Lord [
theos] and Christ.

Acts 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise OF the Holy Ghost, HE hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. 

He Who poured out WIND and FIRE in the upper room is the same parakletos: different in some respects but not heteros.

Paul saw the Spirit Lord Who said "I am Jesus of Nazareth."
Ephesians 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ,
        the Father of glory, may give unto you a spirit of wisdom and revelation
        in the knowledge of him;
Ephesians 1:18 having the eyes of your heart enlightened,
        that ye may know what is the hope of his calling,
        what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
Ephesians 1:19 and what the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe,
        according to that working of the strength of his might
Ephesians 1:20 which he wrought in Christ,
        when he raised him from the dead,
        and made him to sit at his right hand in the heavenly places,
Ephesians 1:21 far above all rule, and authority, and power, and dominion,
        and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
Ephesians 1:22 and he put all things in subjection under his feet,
        and gave him to be head over all things to the church,
Ephesians 1:23 which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
See Jay Guin: a new way to authorize instrumental music in the School of Christ and the Word.

See Revelation 14 where all of the sounds create fright or anxiety and when you hear them over Zion (your church?) it is a warning that time is short.  If you are physically or spiritually alive the warning is to "preache the gospel."

The CENI Principle: If God hasn't spoken then I can add musical instruments based on "the law of silence." After I have imposed upon people this becomes the "will of Jesus Christ."

NEW 5.20.10
Isaiah 50 the Smiting and Plucking and Shaming all point to Him being treated like a priest of Cybele or a Dionysus priest always naked and perverted.  Paul outlaws these sects in Romans 14 who were marked by their diet in the marketplace.  In Revelation 15 Paul said that could not engage in the SELF-pleasure which is defined as all of the performing arts and connects this to the REPROACES Jesus suffered for out sins. This leaves us free to engage in "synagogue" where we speak "that which is written."

Isaiah 58: See how Christ limited the REST day to not seeking our own pleasure (Romans 15) and not speaking our own words.

Christ in the Spirit defined the Qahal, synagogue or Church of Christ in the Widerness:

It was INCLUSIVE of Rest, Reading and Rehearsing the Words of God.
It was EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrumental rejoicing.  If you understand that Christ ordained a "school of His Word" or academia in Latin, it will be easier to rest those who want to teach and get all of the attention while Jesus Christ is trying to teach when we teach that which has been taught.


Christ spoke through the prophets to repudiate the worship of the Levites whom God had turned over to worship the starry host.  This was the old Dionysus, Bacchus or Sabazianism common to Babylon, Egypt, Canaan and Greece.  This worship is well documented in the ancient texts:

Strabo Geography 10.3.15

[10.3.15] They invented names appropriate to the flute, and to

the noises made by castanets, cymbals, and drums,
and to their acclamations and shouts of "ev-ah," and stampings of the feet;
and they also invented some of the names by which to designate the [homosexual, emasculated]

ministers, choral dancers, and attendants upon the sacred rites,
I mean "
Cabeiri" and "Corybantes" and "Pans" and "Satyri" and "Tityri,"

and they called the god "Bacchus," and Rhea [Eve] "Cybele" or "Cybebe" or "Dindymene" according to the places where she was worshipped. Sabazius also belongs to the Phrygian group and in a way is the child of the Mother,, since he too transmitted the rites of Dionysus.

Plut. Crass. 23 But when they were near the Romans and the signal was raised by their commander, first of all they filled the plain with the sound of a deep and terrifying roar. [7] For the Parthians do not incite themselves to battle with horns or trumpets, but they have hollow drums of distended hide, covered with bronze bells, and on these they beat all at once in many quarters, and the instruments give forth a low and dismal tone, a blend of wild beast's roar and harsh thunder peal. 
        They had rightly judged that, of all the senses,
        hearing is the one most apt to confound the soul,
        soonest rouses its emotions,
        and most effectively
unseats the judgment.

That is why, without exception, music and instruments were lifeless instruments or carnal weapons used to induce enchantment intending to pick your pockets while causing you to smile.

Aesch. PB 575 Io

[575] The waxen pipe drones forth in accompaniment a clear-sounding slumberous strain. Alas, alas! Where is my far-roaming wandering course taking me? In what, O son of Cronus, in what have you found offence so that you have bound me [580] to this yoke of misery—aah! are you harassing a wretched maiden to frenzy by this terror of the pursuing gadfly? Consume me with fire, or hide me in the earth, or give me to the monsters of the deep to devour; but do not grudge, 
        O Lord, the favor that I pray for.
        [585] My far-roaming wanderings have taught me enough,
        and I cannot discern how to escape my sufferings.

Amos 8:10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation;
        and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head;
        and I will make it as the mourning of an only son,
        and the end thereof as a bitter day.
Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD,  
    that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
        but of hearing the words of the LORD:

Amos 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east,
        they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
Hippolytus V
"Yobal made reed instruments, and harps, and flutes, and whistles, 
        and the devils went and dwelt inside them.
        When men blew into the pipes, the devils sang inside them 
        And Satan had been made ruler (or prince) of that camp
And when the men and women were stirred up to lascivious frenzy by the devilish playing of the reeds which emitted musical sounds, and by the harps which the men played through the operation of the power of the devils, and by the sounds of the tambourines and of the sistra which were beaten and rattled through the agency of evil spirits, the sounds of their laughter were heard in the air above them, and ascended to that holy mountain.

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.

There is nothing you can do to worship God but FEED the souls of starving people with the Water of the Word: free of charge.

       John 6:60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said,
                This is an hard saying; who can hear it?

Otherwise, no human has ANY private opinion to offer: the command is to teach that which has been taught.  In Isaiah 58 the command is NOT to speak your own words.  That is the command against "private interpretation" or adding further exlanation to the prophets made more certain. That would be the MARK of a false teacher (2 Peter 2) who refutes God in Christ as have delivered all that pertains to life and godliness.

2Pet. 1:12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things,

2Pet. 1:14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle,

But if it was clear that the attraction lay in the boy's outward beauty, he banned the connexion as an abomination; and thus he caused lovers to abstain from boys no less than parents abstain from sexual intercourse with their children and brothers and sisters with each other [14] I am not surprised, however, that people refuse to believe this.

Aristot. Pol. 5.1304b But in the light of these general rules we must consider the usual course of events [20] as classified according to each different kind of constitution. In democracies the principal cause of revolutions is the insolence of the demagogues; for they cause the owners of property to band together, partly by malicious prosecutions of individuals among them (for common fear brings together even the greatest enemies), and partly by setting on the common people against them as a class

And one may see this taking place in this manner in many instances. In Cos the democracy was overthrown when evil demagogues had arisen there, for the notables banded themselves together; and also in Rhodes, for the demagogues used to provide pay for public services, and also to hinder the payment of money owed to the naval captains, and these because of the lawsuits that were brought against them were forced to make common cause and overthrow the people. 

And also at Heraclea the people were put down immediately after the foundation of the colony because of the people's leaders; for the notables being unjustly treated by them used to be driven out, but later on those who were driven out collecting together effected their return and put down the people. And also the democracy at Megara was put down in a similar manner; the people's leaders in order to have money to distribute to the people went on expelling many of the notables, until they made the exiles a large body, and these came back and defeated the people in a battle and set up the oligarchy. And the same thing happened also at Cyme

had left my kingdom for awhile, when tidings of strange mischief in this city reached me; I hear that our women-folk have left their homes on pretence of Bacchic rites, and on the wooded hills rush wildly to and fro, honouring in the dance this new god Dionysus, whoe'er he is; and in the midst of each revel-rout the brimming wine-bowl stands, and one by one they steal away to lonely spots to gratify their lust, pretending forsooth that they are Maenads bent on sacrifice, though it is Aphrodite they are placing before the Bacchic god. As many as I caught, my gaolers are keeping safe in the public prison fast bound; and all who are gone forth, will I chase from the hills, Ino and Agave too who bore me to Echion, and Actaeon's mother Autonoe.

Pythian 1 For Hieron of Aetna Chariot Race 470 B. C.
Golden lyre, rightful joint possession of Apollo and the violet-haired Muses, to which the dance-step listens, the beginning of splendid festivity; and singers obey your notes, whenever, with your quivering strings, you prepare to strike up chorus-leading preludes. [5] You quench even the warlike thunderbolt of everlasting fire. And the eagle sleeps on the scepter of Zeus, relaxing his swift wings on either side, the king of birds; and you pour down a dark mist over his curved head, a sweet seal on his eyelids. Slumbering, he ripples his liquid back, [10] under the spell of your pulsing notes.
        Even powerful Ares, setting aside the rough spear-point, warms his heart in repose;
        your shafts charm the minds even of the gods, by virtue of the skill of Leto's son
        and the deep-bosomed Muses.

Plautus: And that danger do I compare to what they say, how that Ulysses, recognized by Hele , was betrayed to Hecuba. But as, in olden time, by his coaxing arts, he liberated himself from her, and persuaded her to let him go, so I, by my devices, have rescued myself from the danger, and have deceived the old man. Afterwards, I engaged with the blustering Captain, who, unarmed, takes cities with his words, and there I repulsed my man. Then I engaged in fight with the old gentleman; straightway by one lying device did I vanquish him; by one blow, in a moment, did I take the spoils away from him.
Is. 55:10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven,

Is. 55:11 So shall MY word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:
        it shall not return unto me void,
