Jay Guin The Church of the Firstborn

Richard Beck Experimental Theology and the future of Churches of Christ.   In Scripture Theology defines the Scribes and Pharisees who "take away the key to knowledge." Jesus defined the Scribes (liars in the prophets) and Pharisees as Hypocrites. In the Ezekiel version Christ names popular preachers for hire, singers and instrument players." These are the MARKS of people who neither preach nor practice the word.  The Spirit OF Christ defined the Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness for the godly people. He defined the FUTURE of the Church of Christ both inclusively and exclusively in the prophets.   The ACU kingdom have a spirit guide who is now defining the FUTURE of churches which are no longer SYNAGOGUES which define the once a week assembly to PREACH the Word (regulative principle) by READING the Word for Comfort and doctrine.  The Lord's supper teaches us that we have nothing of value to IMAGINE so we follow the pattern SPEAK (dicto) A hymn and GO OUT.  The progressives are not just anti-sectarian but are UNIVERSALISTS which probably means "we will take anyone's money" for the unlawful collection plate.

Theology would never dare be used about the God identified in the Scriptures (Prophets and Apostles).  That would presume a level of inspiration claimed by those who hear A spirit tell them to twist the Scriptures. We will show that THEOLOGY which was suddenly unleashed to replace the Scriptures identifies Abaddon-Apollon unleased from the PIT to become the leader and SPIRIT GUIDE of the Locusts who are the MUSES or worship team; they are identified as adulteresses and SHEPHERDS under the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17).  They sort out the craftsmen, singers and instrument players who are called SORCERERS so they can be held captive until time to CAST THEM ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.




Jay Guin on Dancing as Worship 

Review: Danny Corbitt: Missing More than Music - Bible and ...
+ Danny.Corbit.Justin.Martyr.Instrumental.Music

People lust to restructure Churches of Christ
into a caliphate and you have or will be hurt.  The rise of the Shepherding or Radical Discipling revival goes along with the 20/20 vision which is important because instrumental sounds are resourced from Satan used by agents to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter. No one has been so cavemanish that they did not know that you could derange the mind with cries or screams or beating on things.  The first Biblical example was Jubal who handled (in a sexual sense) all of the musical instruments and the FATHER of those who "handle without authority."

Jay Guin Dancing in Worship; something of Biblical Proportions just in time.
if you claim that you are led by a holy spirit person many who are called will follow you and get upset if we say that the only PERSONIFIED SPIRIT is named Abaddon or Apollyon: he is the king over the locusts or MUSES who have been unleashed from hell to force you to take the brand if you deny that the WORD is defined as the Spirit of God as the ANTITHESIS.

National Shepherding Movement

Jesus Proposal Rubel Shelly and John York: [p. 114] Our proposal to focus on Jesus means that Scripture is NO LONGER a set of proof-texts or a collection of facts or God's rulebook for human behavior. Scripture is the unfolding story of God acting both to create and to re-create. It is not an easy book to understand. It was NEVER intended as a document to [p. 115] be INDIVIDUALLY read and interpreted--a sort of correspondence course in salvation.

More importantly
we lay aside INDIVIDUAL interpretations precisely because they are inevitably argumentative and divisive.
We GIVE UP the right of individual interpretation and take on the accountability of SHARED READING.

Peter said that the Prophets by Christ, the made certain by Jesus to eye-- and ear-- witnesses and the memory left by the PARTS of the Apostles. Then the School of Christ is built upon or educated by the Prophets and Apostles and no one is permitted private interpretation of FURTHER EXPOUNDING: Peter said that would repudiate the Spirit OF God "breathing" the Word into Jesus who SPOKE the Word without metron or METER.

2 Peter III. This is now, beloved, the second letter that I have written to you; and in both of them
        I stir up your sincere mind by reminding you;
[2]  that you should 
        remember the WORDS which were spoken before by the holy prophets,
        and the commandments of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior:

        walking after their own lusts,

This is not a pooling of collective ignorance. The Bible is full of stories from ancient and often quite alien cultural settings and belief systems, and we cannot ignore those differences. So we listen to the voices of scholarship just as we listen to the child who intuitively hears what God is saying in a particular story.

While we still have access to reading as individuals, we stop asking, "What does this mean to me?"--as though there is such an isolated meaning. Instead we have a GROUP MENTALITY that asks, "What does this mean to US?

ACU Carroll D. Osburn

Carroll D. Osburn: Such fundamentalist views on women in the church are primarily the result of reaction against cultural changes and only secondarily the result of biblical proof-texting. This, basically, is our legacy" (p. 17)

The ACU Agenda: Train Prophetic roles, Channelers and Facilitators the method of subverting the 'hierarchial" views of Jesus and Paul. [the end-time subversion is the beginninng-time version which is] "Feminist hermeneutics stands over against patriarchal hermeneutics" its goal achieved "by small, often unnoticed acts of SUBVERSION. Numerous such incremental changes, like EROSION, will eventually bring down the FORTRESS " ( WOMEN IN THE CHURCH: Reclaiming the Ideal p. 32).

The Purpose of War:

McCartney's pastor at the Boulder Valley Vineyard, Rev. James Ryle, whom McCartney says is the other major influence in his life, conducts a "prophetic" ministry and participates in conferences with men who claim to be prophets in the first-century sense of the term.

Ryle believes Promise Keepers, of which he is a board member, is the fulfillment of the Biblically prophesied end-time army described in the Book of Joel-- a terrifying army from which there is no escape.

"Promise Keepers urges men to form "accountability" groups of no more than five members, within which they are expected to submit all aspects of their lives to review and rebuke. Each member must answer any probes concerning his marriage, family, finances, sexuality, or business activity.

If you do not understand that a Christian is a Disciple and a Disciple is a Student commanded to teach what Jesus Christ commanded to be taught and observe. That includes the Prophets by the Spirit OF Christ and the prophecies made more certain by Jesus and left in PARTS by the eye-- and ear-- witnesses of the risen Lord.  A Student of Einstein does not expect to pay someone to enhance Einstein. I believe that he would stick his pipe in an uncomfortable place.

The ekklesia or church is every person who has been baptized FOR the remission of sins and therefore has A holy spirit or A good conscience so they can read BLACK text on BROWN paper. When the church ASSEMBLES they SYNAGOGUE

Jacob cursed the Levi tribe used as the PATTERN for musical worship.  He said that they should not attend their qahal or synagogue nor enter into covenant with them because they were a murderous tribe. When Israel fell into musical idolatry at Mount Sinai the Levites jumped at the chance to execute 3,000 of the "bretheren." God commanded that the Levites stand in ranks, make a great noise and execute any godly person who came near their sacrificial system or temple dedicated to worship Moloch or the starry host as they had at Mount Sinai.

Christ the Rock ordained the Church of Christ to quarantine the godly from the PROGRESSIVES of that day.  John Calvin and the Campbells understood that the LOGOS is the regulative principle and the one-piece pattern forever was and is as a MARK:
Acts 8:28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot READ Esaias the prophet.

The pre-theology enoch understood that Christ in Isaiah 1 defines baptism identical to the command in Mark 16.

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

Work which is outlawed was "sending out ministers of God."  They did what Paul commanded any APT elder as the pastor-teacher "To teach that which HAS been taught."

2Cor. 3:14 But their minds were blinded:
        for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away
        in the
READ ING of the old testament;
        which vail is done away in Christ.

If you are IN the Lord you will be able to read Paul say that THE LORD IS THAT SPIRIT.  Only the wise or sophists or cunning craftsmen think that they should violate the direct command to READ because like the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites they know that it is not legal to sell the free water of the Word.

Eph. 3:4 Whereby, when ye READ, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
Col. 4:16 And when this epistle is READ among you,
        cause that it be READ also in the church of the Laodiceans;
        and that ye likewise
READ the epistle from Laodicea.

1Th. 5:27 I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be
READ unto all the holy brethren.
1Tim. 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to [public]
READING, to exhortation, to doctrine.
Rev. 5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy
        to open and to
READ the book, neither to look thereon.
What part of READ is so hard to understand that the Massed Multitudes of Doctors of the Law insist on proving Jesus' warning that "doctors of the Law take away the Key to Knowledge."  That is their job.  In Revelation 18::23 the craftsmen, singers and instrument players are SORCERERS who HAD ONCE deceived the whole world.  Jude speaks of Wandering Stars or Bandits worshiping the stars, fire and serpent worship. That is why Christ in Isaiah 30 and Revelation THEY WILL BE (are) CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE

Jay Guin Denies that the Church of the First born is the Ekklesia or Church of Christ: He claims and people believe that
"Since I have access to more exegetic resources than most

That is false:
Jay writes his OWN BRIEF and denies the "rest of the story." There is nothing in the Bible or Church history before the Disciples of Christ in 1878 even needed any authority for adding musical instruments.  Too bad but the command is to "use one mind and one mouth to speak that which is written" or "Scripture for our comfort" is the direct command in Romans 15.  That follows his command not to engage in SELF-PLEASURE which is they they reproached Jesus by exposing His nakedness.

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

Jay Guin Ekklesia NOT The Church of Christ: In the comments, for the last several days there has been discussion over the meaning of Hebrews 12:23, particularly its reference to the “church of the firstborn.” Since I have access to more exegetic resources than most, I thought I’d poke around a bit in the text and the commentaries to see just what this is all about.
  1. The Spirit OF Christ defined the future REST of Messiah both inclusively and exclusively.
  2. Jesus said that the Law added because of musical idolatry would not finally be put to rest until all of the prophecies concerning Him were fulfilled.
  3. The Church of Christ (the Rock) from the wilderness onward quarantined the godly to their local areas so they could not attend any of the Seventh Day Worship services devoted to Saturn, Apollon and all of the "stars." The pattern was defined as a school of the Word exclusive of "vocal or instrumental rejoicing or rhetoric."
  4. Peter said that the prophets had been made more certain by Jesus. and the Apostles left us a memory of their eye and ear witnesses.
  5. Peter said that is not subjected to private interpretation, further expounding or exegesis.
  6. Paul was a suffering servant as his VALIDATION and did not corrupt the Word meaning "selling learning at retail" also mening prostitution.
  7. That was left as a way to MARK false teachers.
  8. The church or Ekklesia whose independant spirits have been translated into a heavenly kingdom which does not come with religious observation. The earthly assembly is called SYNAGOGUE which met ONCE A WEEK to REST, read and rehearse the Word. Christ the Rock outlawed vocal or instrumental rejoicing or any personal rhetoric.  That is the ALARM or TRIUMPH OVER and the Judas character was and is the son of perdition sent to make the SOUNDS-ALIKE. In Revelation they are the sounds of soon Judgment.

Nor can we admit that these are the only forms: for we have had before now examples of absolute and tyrannical forms of government,

That would imply that the Spirit OF Christ in the prophets and apostles were not COMPETENT.

Jay Guin Ekklesia NOT The Church of Christ: I (Heb 12:22-24 ESV) 22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering,  23 and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect,  24 and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

They rose up against God and engaged in PLAY: that means playing, mocking, playing instruments and playing with one another.  Paul in Romans 1 defines the MARK and RESULT of musical idolatry in God's presence. Romans 12 makes worship IN THE SPIRIT as a place.

Our spirits are translated into a heavenly kingdom: that is why we SPEAK and LISTEN as opposed to PREACH and SING to enlighten out spirits but only after we have crucified or silenced the FLESH (Romans 12) as the ONE-PIECE-PATTERN of the School of Christ.  We don't make DOGMA which includes music out of the WORD but we listen to it because it IS Spirit and Life.
Col.1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, 
        and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood,
        even the forgiveness of sins:
If our spirits (minds) have not been shifted into a heavenly kingdom which is exclusively "IN the spirit" made holy by baptism so that we have A good conscience, consciousness or a CO-perception of the Word. Jesus still speaks through HIS Word which IS Spirit and Life and we can READ that word and our spirits are regenerated by the RENEWING OF THE MIND.
Luke 1:72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers,
        and to remember his holy covenant;
Luke 1:73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
Luke 1:74 That he would grant unto us,
        that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies
        might serve him without fear,
Luke 1:75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
Luke 1:76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest:
        for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
Luke 1:77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,
Luke 1:78 Through the tender mercy of our God;
        whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,
Luke 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
        to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Rom. 12:2 And be not conformed to this world:
        but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
        that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Eph. 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

Paul refutes unity in diversity and Christ gifts APT elders who by definition will eject the cunning craftsmen or Sophists meaning speakers for hire who go beyond that which is written, singers and instrument players. The MUST be literally ejected from the "fellowship" because THEY ARE LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

Our spirit is our Mental Disposition of our mind beyond our brain.  To keep the process SANITARY the command from the Church in the wilderness and onward with Paul's command to Timothy to PREACH the WORD by READING the Word for Comfort and doctrine.

The Kingdom is WITHIN US and you cannot STAFF it or FLEECE it or WORSHIP for it for a price. You cannot smell it, you cannot hear it, you cannot fell it moving your pleasure centers. Jesus paid it all and BELIEVERS will not pay men for the free water of the Word (Isaiah 58) when Christ commanded that we NOT seek our own pleasure or even SPEAK our own words.

Always Stopped:

Hab. 2:13 Behold, is it not of the LORD of hosts that the people shall labour in the very fire,
                and the people shall weary themselves for very vanity?

Jesus died to give us REST which as the Greek PAUO (sabbath) means to STOP the labor of speaking, singing, playing instruments and passing the fleecing plates SO THAT.
To Make Possible
        Hab. 2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD,
as the waters cover the sea.
David awakened his lyre so that he could awaken the Dawn (mother of Lucifer)
Pindar, Nemean, 9 [6] There is a saying among men: a noble deed when it is accomplished should not be buried silently in the ground; and divine song is suited to boasting. But we will wake the shouting lyre and the flute in honor of the very pinnacle of horse-contests, which Adrastus established for Phoebus [Apollo, Apollon] by the streams of the Asopus. Father Zeus, I pray that I may celebrate this excellence by the favor of the Graces, and excel many poets in honoring victory with my verses, [55] throwing my shaft nearest of all to the mark of the Muses.
Hab. 2:19 Woe unto him that saith to the wood,
; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach!
        Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver,
        and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.
Hab. 2:20 But the LORD is in his holy temple:
        let all the earth keep silence before him.

Sileo  to be noiseless, still, or silent, to keep silence; act., not to speak of, to keep silent respecting a thing (class.; stronger than tacere). I.  Transf., to be still or quiet (OPPOSITE. to being in action), to remain inactive, to rest, cease (in class. prose, for the most part only of things; cf. “quiesco): et cycnea mele Phoebeaque Carmina  Apollon's Music

Lucr. 2, 506: “silent diutius Musae Varronis quam solebant,
We even have a mention at a later date of a similar custom in connection with the cult in Jerusalem, where certain Levites, called me'oreim, 'arousers," sang every morning this verse from Ps 44: 'Awake, Lord, awake! Do not abandon us for ever." The Talmud tells us that Johm Hyrcanus suppressed the practice because it recalled too readily a pagan custom.

A similar practice is attested in connection with the cult of Herakles-Melkart. According to Menander, as he is quoted by Josephus, the king Hiram, who was a contemporary of Solomon, rebuilt the temples of Tyre and, 'he was the first to celebrate the awakening of Heracles in the month of Peritius." (de Vaux, p. 247)

This king is defined as "Lucifer the singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden."

In an inscription from Cyprus, in one from Rhodes and in several from around the district of Carthage, there are references to important personages who bear the title Mqm"lm which we can translate as 'arouser of the god." (de Vaux, p. 247).

"Musical Worship Teams" are hired with no authority and no dole promising that "We can lead you into the presence of God."

Paul commanded that BOTH men and women be silent and sedentary "so that all might be saved or SAFE and come to a knowledge of THE TRUTH (that one-piece pattern for A Church of Christ)

The QUIET KINGDOM of the LITTLE FLOCK is quarantined from Jerusalem or "worship centers." if they have APT elders they will teach that which HAS BEEN TAUGHT. The Logos or regulative principle is opposite to rhetoric, personal comments, singing, playing instruments or dancing in your tutu.

Heb. 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved,
        let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
Heb. 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

A kingdom cannot have more than one kingdom at a time but I know the boasts of the ABILENE KINGDOM.

Christ is the HEAD and KING of His Kingdom or Church: He invites the twos or threes to "come rest and LEARN OF ME.'  The command from the wilderness onward was to PREACH the Word (only) by READING the Word (only) for comfort and coctrine. If you have any worship center staff after the Levite pattern they are called sorcerers and PARASITES.

When you tamper with the word and decide that all recorded history is wrong God sends strong delusions that you believe your own lies: lying wonders are "worship services" claiming some value to God including rhetoric, singing,playing instruments, acting or dancing. Yes, david danced naked under the influence of music but you are not a David.

Heb. 12:18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched,
        and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,

You are not come:

Heb. 12:19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words;

        which voice they that heard intreated
        that the word should not be spoken to them any more:

in 2 Corinthians 3 that's when they went blind and deaf until they converted or were baptized into Christ.

Heb. 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God,
        the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

Jay Guin Ekklesia NOT The Church of Christ: It’s ironic, because Esau was born first, and then Jacob, later renamed Israel, was born second. Israel is God’s “firstborn” because Israel is the favored child of God, the one chosen by him.

First born can mean "only beloved" or the person given the future role as Patriarch.  A second or two did not matter: Jesus said that God HID truth from the wise or SOPHISTS from the foundation of the world in parables.  This message carries lost of cultural meaning about the classes of people represented by Cain and Abel.
Gen. 25:26 And after that came his brother out,
        and his hand took hold on Esau’s heel; and his name was called Jacob:
        and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.
Gen. 25:27 And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field;
        and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents.

Gal. 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons,

Gal. 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman
        was born after the flesh;
        but he of the freewoman was by promise.

Only the Son of the FREEWOMAN is the First Born Son in a spiritual sense.  Jerusalem as the PATTERN automatically REJECTS the first born son and accepts the HAGAR worship which was musical idolatry.

Simon Magnos was born too soon: he could have bought the skills to BUY AND SELL the "spirit" guiding him beyond the sacred pages.

Jay Guin Ekklesia NOT The Church of Christ:  My first step is to check the Greek. What is the meaning of the word translated “firstborn”? Much to my surprise, it turns out that the word, πρωτοτόκων or prōtotokōn, is plural. We might better translate “firstborns” or “firstborn children.”

prōtotokōn  Adj  pl fem gen  prōtotok-os (parox.), Dor. pra_totokos , on, A.bearing or having borne her first-born, mētēr p., of a heifer

If you have 4 heifers then you have 4 firstborns but Mary was singular and she brought forth her firstborn.

Genesis 22[21] Uz his firstborn, Buz his brother, Kemuel the father of Aram,
Luke 2.7 She brought forth her firstborn son, and she wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a feeding trough, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Rom. 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord,
        which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
Rom. 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power,
        according to the spirit OF holiness, BY the resurrection from the dead:

If you bring the firstborn of the flock that means that you have the firstborn of MANY MOTHERS.

First is a prototype: there cannot be more than one FIRST.  The PROTYPE Gospel is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. We obey a FORM or ANTI-type in baptism but we cannoot be the FIRST.

Ex. 13:2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn,
        whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel,
        both of man and of beast: it is mine.

A womb can only be opened once: if Jesus was not the unique firstborn chile of God as HEAD of the church then is Jesus NOT the firstborn of Mary since she had several? I cannot find FIRSTBORN CHILDREN.

Plainly, the reference is not to Jesus as the first resurrected of God’s household (Rom 8:29 does refer to Jesus in this sense). In fact, somehow or other, this seems like an allusion to the first Passover, in which the firstborn son of each household was killed by the Destroyer or Death Angel unless protected by the blood of the Passover lamb — painted on the doorframe of each Israelite house to mark the home as belonging to a child of God.

Heb. 12:23 To the general assembly
        and church of the firstborn,
        which are written in heaven,
        and to God the Judge of all,
        and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
In a literal sense there can one be ONE FIRST: You can learn that from Greek and not have to break your bones denying the UNIQUE or ONLY BELOVED Son of God. What is the motive if you can tell.
Acts 8:12 But when they believed Philip
        preaching the things
        [1] concerning the kingdom of God,
        [2] AND the name of Jesus Christ,

        they were baptized, both men and women.

Col.1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, 

        and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood,
        even the forgiveness of sins:

Col.1:24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his bodys sake, which is the church:
Col.4:11 And Jesus, which is called Justus, who are of the circumcision.
        These only are my fellowworkers unto the kingdom of God,
        which have been a comfort unto me.
Those who are baptized INTO or Clothed WITH Christ have their spirits translated into the heavenly kingdom: that is why the kingdom does not come with OBSERVATION which means acts of WORK thinking you can attract God's Attention.
We are members of the Church of the Firstborn or Church of Christ or the Church of "god" who shed his own blood. We are living stones in the TEMPLE but there can only be One Spiritual Temple. Doctor's of the law missed antecedents and prepositions.
Col. 1:14 In whom we have redemption through HIS blood,
        even the forgiveness of sins:
Col. 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, [Kurios not Theos]
        the firstborn of every creature:

Col. 1:18 And HE is the head of the body, the church:
        who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead;
        that in all things HE might have the preeminence.

Rom. 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, [He knew-before a tiny remnant of Jews]
        he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son,
        that HE might be the firstborn among many brethren.

The MARK of those who CANNOT be part of that Church:
Rom. 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long;
        we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

So what is the “assembly” of the firstborn a reference to? The Greek is ekklēsia, often translated “church” or “congregation.”

Jay Guin Ekklesia NOT The Church of Christ: (The word does not mean “called out.” That’s the etymology of the word, i.e., the origin of the word, but not the meaning of the word as used in scripture. The same word can refer to a mob (Acts 19:32)! The primary meaning is a gathering or assembly of people (whether or not gathered by a call). “The NCAA handed down sanctions against the football program due to flagrant violations of recruiting rules.” “Sanctions” is from the Latin sancire to make holy — hardly the meaning of the word in that sentence. Definition and etymology are two different things.)

We are lucky that Scripture defines the EKKLESIA OF JESUS CHRIST

The only elected STAFF of the Civil ekklesia or sullogos was a CONTACT MAN: as preacher or kerusso he called the people into the assembly and kept order. The presbyter or herald READ material from a higher authority. The synagogue had no praise service which is outlawed in Numbers to.

Jay Guin Ekklesia NOT The Church of Christ: The Septuagint’s use of ekklēsia in the Torah gives the word a special flavor in the New Testament —

(Deu 9:10 ESV)  10 And the LORD gave me the two tablets of stone written with the finger of God, and on them were all the words that the LORD had spoken with you on the mountain out of the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly.

The Day of Sabbath given by Jehovah was a day of REST.  REST outlawed "work" which prevented "sending out ministers of God." They were commanded to remain in their local camps in quietness. The ASSEMBLY at the foot of Mount Sinai was a Progressive Worship Center meaning "hard bondage." They were NOT the ekklesia or synagogue of God.

The polluted or profaned the REST day from Chalal or Halal meaning play the flute, to steal your inheritance, pollute or prostitute. They were given REST on that day and not commanded to ASSEMBLE.

Jay Guin Ekklesia NOT The Church of Christ: (Deu 18:15-16 ESV)  15 “The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers — it is to him you shall listen — 16 just as you desired of the LORD your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly, when you said, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God or see this great fire any more, lest I die.’

  That seems to be a reference to —

(Exo 32:31-33 ESV)  31 So Moses returned to the LORD and said, “Alas, this people has sinned a great sin. They have made for themselves gods of gold.  32 But now, if you will forgive their sin
— but if not, please blot me out of your book that you have written.”  33 But the LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me, I will blot out of my book.

Isa 8:19

"In Isa 8:19 the 'obhoth and yidh'onim are spoken of those who 'chirp and mutter." These terms refer to the necromancers themselves who practiced ventriloquism in connection with their magical rites. In Isa 29:4 it is said 'Thy voice shall be as an 'obh, out of the ground.'... They are stamped in these passages, as in the Witch of Endor narrative, as deceivers practising a fraudulent art. By implication their power to evoke spirits with whom they were in familiar intercourse is denied." (Int Std Bible Ency., ency, p. 690)

"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).

Jay Guin Ekklesia NOT The Church of Christ:  The Septuagint’s use of ekklēsia in the Torah gives the word a special flavor in the New Testament —

The godly people would obey the sabbath and REST in their tents: the ungodly refused to listen to God and rose up in musical idolatry.

In Deuteronomy, the ekklēsia initially refers to the nation of Israel gathered at the foot of Mt. Sinai, in awe of the presence of God. Later on, the term is generalized to refer to any assembly of the people at the tabernacle (or temple).

The ungodly were the ASSEMBLY OF the Egyptian trinity represented by the golden calf. The Jacob-cursed Levites jumped at the chance to murder 3,000 of the ASSEMBLY. For that, they were abandoned to stand guards, make a great noise and execue Jay Guin if he came hear while the worshipped the STARRY HOST or the Apollyon principle where their service was Abadoh identical to the APOLLYON star god who traps the ungodly in WORKS-INTENSIVE worship centers

Dt 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

Observer of times:
H6049 ‛ânan aw-nan' A primitive root; to cover; used only as denominative from H6051 , to cloud over; figuratively to act covertly, that is, practise magic, enchanter, Meonemin, observe (-r of) times, soothsayer, sorcerer.
David had these on his staff because he was abandoned to worship the starry host. "We even have a mention at a later date of a similar custom in connection with the cult in Jerusalem, where certain Levites, called me'oreim, 'AROUSERS,' sang (every morning?) this verse from "Ps 44:23: "Awake, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever." The Talmud tells us that John Hyrcanus suppressed the practice because it recalled too readily a pagan custom." (Roland de Vaux, p. 247).
Enchanter: the Mark of the Serpent
H5172 nâchash naw-khash' A primitive root; properly to hiss, that is, whisper a (magic) spell; generally to prognosticate:-- X certainly, divine, enchanter, (use) X enchantment, learn by experience, X indeed, diligently observe.
H5175 nâchâsh naw-khawsh' From H5172 ; a snake (from its hiss):--serpent.

Witch: H3784 kâshaph kaw-shaf' A primitive root; properly to whisper a spell, that is, to inchant or practise magic:--sorcerer, (use) witch (-craft).

Dt 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

mortuis The Jews had a covenant with DEATH and HELL. The musical worship Amos condemned was "feasts with and for dead ancestors." The Marzeah was a worship of BAAL.

God had abandoned the Hebrews  (defacto Egyptians) over to worship the STARRY HOST because of their musical idolatry of the trinity at Mount Sinai (Acts 7 etal).  Amos and Stephen gives us the NAMES of the STAR (666) gods they worshipped even when they called the golden calf their god. The Priests and Levies engaged in augury inspecting the animals and by making NOISE.  Miriam and the Levites consistent with their Egyptian roles PROPHESIED.


Jay Guin Ekklesia NOT The Church of Christ: Thus, “to the assembly of the firstborn” does not mean “church of Jesus” so much as “gathering of Israel to worship.” But what about “who are enrolled in heaven”?

There is no command, example or remote inference that God called people out of their REST to conduct WORSHIP SERVICES.  The Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned Levites SERVED or Abadoh which is the Abaddon or Apollyon since God ABANDONED the musical idolaters to worship the starry host. That is the pattern men hear "a" spirit commanding them to IMPOSE on you.

The Spirit OF God or Jesus is the mind or mental disposition of God or man: God used this word meaning WORD as the ANTITHESIS of the Apollyon worship at the temple.
Spiritus  Spirit in both Hebrew and Greek speaks of a WIND sometimes a violent blast, breathing or gentle blowing of air, a breath, breeze,

Cicero 17. And, indeed, we have constantly heard from men of the greatest eminence and learning, that the study of other sciences was made up of learning, and rules, and regular method; but that a poet was such by the unassisted work of nature, and was moved by the vigour of his own mind, and was inspired, as it were, by some divine wrath.
