Jim Hackney Instrumental Music in Worship

3. 30.16 All musical terms and names of instruments point to sorcery or witchcraft. That is because the witch of Endor used an old wineskin stretched over a hole in the ground as her "familiar spirit." Bone flutes made a sound the earliest witch doctor understood to create the laded burden or "spiritual anxiety" through rituals performed by cunning craftsmen or sophists: rhetoricians, singers, instrument players, actors, dancers or even prostitute who could "bring you into the presence of the gods" -- for a price.

Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation,
        it was needful for me to write unto you,
        and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for THE FAITH
        which was once delivered unto the saints.
Jude 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares,
        who were before of old ordained to this condemnation,
        ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,
        and denying the
                only Lord God,
                and
                our Lord Jesus Christ.  [Trinitarian Antichrists according to John]
Jude 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this,
        how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt,
        afterward destroyed them that believed not.
Jude 6 And the angels which kept not their first estate,
        but left their own habitation,
        he hath reserved in everlasting chains
        under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

Apollon or Abaddon has been unleashed: he is the only personified SPIRIT and he is the leader of the muses in Revelation 18.  The speakers, singers, instrument players and all religious craftsmen are called SORCERERS who HAD once deceived the whole world.  John says that THEY WILL BE CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

WHAT IS THE ABOMINATION IN A HOLY PLACE:

In their wild, enthusiastic, and boisterous rites the Galli recalled the legends of the Corybantes (q.v.). According to an ancient custom, they were always castrated (spadones, semimares, semiviri, nec viri nec feminae), and it would seem that, impelled by religious enthusiasm, they performed this operation on themselves...

RICK ATCHLEY'S COMMAND TO IMPOSE "INSTRUMENTAL PRAISE."

2Chr. 29:27 And Hezekiah commanded to offer the burnt offering upon the altar.
        And when the burnt offering began, the song of the LORD began also with the trumpets,
        and with the instruments ordained by David king of Israel.

Hezekiah stopped the sacrifice of infants with the instrumental noise of the Levites who were an old Egyptian Infant burning priesthood.  As soon as Hezekiah died the sacrifices to Moloch began all over again. And THIS IS THE PATTERN of those LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE

Below: God say this just BEFORE and just AFTER Hezekiah's Plague Stopping Exorcism. This is recorded in 2 Chronicles 29: it is the PATTERN a "spirit" commanded Rick Atchley etal to impose "instrumental praise".  Spiritus in Latin defines the personified spirit as that of Apollon or Abbadon.

Revelation 18F: they are all called Sorcerers who HAD once deceived the whole world.
They WILL BE CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

PAUL UNDERSTOOD THAT THE FEMINISTS AND EFFEMINATE WORSHIPPED EVE. Moses is describing the condition in Babylon after the Jews were sentenced because of instrumental-trinitarian idolatry at Mount Sinai.

Theophilus to Autolycus 

This Eve, on account of her having been in the beginning deceived by the serpent, and become the author of sin, the wicked demon, who also is called Satan, who then spoke to her through the serpent, and who works even to this day in those men that are possessed by him, invokes as Eve.58 And he is called "demon" and "dragon," on account of his revolting from God. For at first he was an angel. And concerning his history there is a great deal to be said; wherefore I at present omit the relation of it, for I have also given an account of him in another place.

58 Referring to the bacchanalian orgies in which " Eva " was shouted, and which the Fathers professed to believe was an unintentional invocation of Eve, the authoress of all sin.

The word "abomination" is also key to understanding the context. In Hebrew, the word "to 'evah," (abomination) is almost invariably linked to idolatry. In the passages from which both verses are taken, God tells Moses to tell the people not to follow the idolatrous practices of the people around them, people who sacrificed their children to Molech, or who masturbated into the fire to offer their semen to Molech, for example. Chapter 20 starts off with the same warning.

Leviticus 20:2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

1Kings 11:7 Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.

"To 'evah" also means "something which is ritually unclean."

  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 W
    ord and the Latin word is BLASPHEME

In Ephesians 4 Christ gave faithful churches elders as the only pastor-teachers of the flock. Their first task is to eject the cunning craftsmen or sophists: speakers for pay, singers and instrument players.  They must be ejected because THEY ARE LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

1Tim. 5:17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

THE DIRECT COMMAND FROM CHRIST THE ROCK FOR THE CHURCH IN THE WILDERNESS EXCLUDED VOCAL OR INSTRUMENTAL REJOICING SO THAT:

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

The epistles and all resources are to be SPOKEN or READ so that no one can insert a private opinion.
LEXIS as SPEAK is the OPPOSITE of ODE.

The ONLY meaning of LEGALISM identifies the MUSES promoting the LAWS of Apollo who is the Apollyon of Revelation. John calls the "lusted after fruits" as rhetoricians, singers and instrument players SORCERERS who had deceived the whole world.

A musical instrument is their "machine for doing hard work, making war and SHOCKING your pants off."

Nomos , ho, ( [nemô] ) can mean "the Law of God" without respect to MOSES.

Homer, Odyssey 1:[1] Tell me, O Muse, of the man of many devices, who wandered full many ways after he had sacked the sacred citadel of Troy. Many were the men whose cities he saw and whose mind he learned, aye, and many the woes he suffered in his heart upon the sea

A. Melpontai Melpo celebrate with song and dance. Od.4.17, [make melody with singing and the phormizon or HARP of Apollo.] dance a war-dance in honour of Ares, Sing and play the kithera, sing and play the aulos or flute. Epithet of Dionysus.

Od.4.17 Homer Odyssey 4.[15] So they were feasting in the great high-roofed hall, the neighbors and kinsfolk of glorious Menelaus, and making merry; and among them a divine minstrel was singing to the lyre, and two tumblers whirled up and down through the midst of them, as he began his song.

Making literal MELODY is the MARK of sorcery: Paul said do that IN the heart and you won't HARM people.

This "arousal singing" was always associated with Phoibos who was the BRIGHT ONE who is also Lucifer and Zoe. He competed with the Pythian spirit Paul cast out of the little TRAFFICING girl USED by men.

NOTE: the use of the HARP had ceased over 400 years beforee the time of Paul

Epic verses were originally sung to musical accompaniment, but after the time of Terpander, as lyric poetry became more independently cultivated, the accompaniment of stringed instruments fell into disuse;

Rhuthmos:  rhythm, opp. metron and harmonia,

Xenophon,on Socrates Symposium 9. 3] Then, to start proceedings, in came Ariadne, apparelled as a bride, and took her seat in the chair. Dionysus being still invisible, there was heard the Bacchic music played on a flute. Then it was that the assemblage was filled with admiration of the dancing master. For as soon as Ariadne heard the strain, her action was such that every one might have perceived her joy at the sound; and although she did not go to meet Dionysus, nor even rise, yet it was clear that she kept her composure with difficulty. [4] But when Dionysus caught sight of her, he came dancing toward her and in a most loving manner sat himself on her lap, and putting his arms about her gave her a kiss. Her demeanour was all modesty, and yet she returned his embrace with affection. As the banqueters beheld it, they kept clapping and crying “encore!” [5] Then when Dionysus arose and gave his hand to Ariadne to rise also, there was presented the impersonation of lovers kissing and caressing each other. The onlookers viewed a Dionysus truly handsome, an Ariadne truly fair, not presenting a burlesque but offering genuine kisses with their lips; and they were all raised to a high pitch of enthusiasm as they looked on. [6] For they overheard Dionysus asking her if she loved him, and heard her vowing that she did, so earnestly that not only Dionysus but all the bystanders as well would have taken their oaths in confirmation that the youth and the maid surely felt a mutual affection. For theirs was the appearance not of actors who had been taught their poses but of persons now permitted to satisfy their long- cherished desires. [7] At last, the banqueters, seeing them in each other's embrace and obviously leaving for the bridal couch, those who were unwedded swore that they would take to themselves wives, and those who were already married mounted horse and rode off to their wives that they might enjoy them. As for Socrates and the others who had lingered behind, they went out with Callias to join Lycon and his son in their walk.

"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 AROUSERS of the god.'" (de Vaux, Roland, The Bible and the Ancient Near East, Doubleday, p. 247).

"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).

11.15.13
Brock Paulk: Sermon Review of Matthew 21 and the reluctance to repent.  It is bad news when people fail to read the PROPHECY by Christ which is defined in Matthew 21 and elsewhere. Why should people be reluctant to give an answer for the hope they have when sowing massive discord and violating directions?

12.22.13  Lucifer is Venus or ZOE and among the matriarchal "mother of harlots" she-he is EVE or EVAH meaning an Abomination. Lucifer is well documented in the Greek literature.  Christ said that when Lucifer was Cast as Profane (Chalal or Halal the "praise" word) into the Garden of Eden She-He was the "singing and harp-playing prostitute." 

The Beginning Mother of Beasts and the End-Time Babylon Mother of Harlots are identical. Paul said that Eve was wholly SEDUCED as a new bride is SEDUCED just before her husband. That is why Cain (from a musical note or mark) was OF that Wicked one.

Eve is mentioned only twice in the New Testament and because Jesus spoke in parables to HIDE the truth from the WISE (sophists=rhetoricians, singers, musicians, actors).  Moses was writing an INVERTED version of Babylon Myths AFTER the nation fell from grace BECAUSE of instrumental idolatry at Mount Sinai.  Therefore, those who mock Paul do not understand that Paul knew all about Eve and scholars know nothing. While not necessarily true, Paul understood that women especially looked to EVE (Zoe, Mary) as THEIR Mediatrix.

The serpents, however, of the magicians-(that is,) the gods of destruction-withstood the power of Moses in Egypt, but the rod of Moses reduced them all to subjection and slew them. This universal serpent is, he says, the wise discourse of Eve. This, he says, is the mystery of Edem, this the river of Edem;
this the mark that was set upon Cain,
that any one who findeth him might not kill him. This, he says, is Cain, [Gen. iv. 15] whose sacrifice [Gen. iv. 5. ] the god of this world did not accept.

Theophilus to Autolycus 

This Eve, on account of her having been in the beginning deceived by the serpent, and become the author of sin, the wicked demon, who also is called Satan, who then spoke to her through the serpent, and who works even to this day in those men that are possessed by him, invokes as Eve.58 And he is called "demon" and "dragon," on account of his revolting from God. For at first he was an angel. And concerning his history there is a great deal to be said; wherefore I at present omit the relation of it, for I have also given an account of him in another place.

58 Referring to the bacchanalian orgies in which " Eva " was shouted, and which the Fathers professed to believe was an unintentional invocation of Eve, the authoress of all sin.

The word "abomination" is also key to understanding the context. In Hebrew, the word "to 'evah," (abomination) is almost invariably linked to idolatry. In the passages from which both verses are taken, God tells Moses to tell the people not to follow the idolatrous practices of the people around them, people who sacrificed their children to Molech, or who masturbated into the fire to offer their semen to Molech, for example. Chapter 20 starts off with the same warning.

"To 'evah" also means "something which is ritually unclean."
But also, concerning music, some have fabled that Apollo [Abaddon, Apollyon]  was the inventor, and others say that Orpheus discovered the art of music from the sweet voices of the birds. Their story is shown to be empty and vain, for these inventors lived many years after the flood. And what relates to Noah, who is called by some Deucalion, has been explained by us in the book before mentioned, and which, if you wish it, you are at liberty to read.

Genesis 1 is exactly parallel to John 1: after Israel fell into instrumental idolatry of their Egyptian gods, God abandoned the later Civil-Military-Clergy complex to worship the same "gods" that appear as Abaddon or Apollyon in Revelation.  The LOCUSTS or MUSES are unleashed from "hell" and Abaddon is the Musical Worship leader. This happened exactly 4000 years after Moses defined the same conflict between LIGHT and DARK.  That was launched by the most virulent, hostile attack against the ANTI-instrumental Churches of Christ mounted exactly 100 years after the first brutal attack.  This convinced Churches of Christ that even friendly fellowship meant that their flock would be Purpose Driven by the boast of "Infiltrating and diverting the church homes of widows and honest workers into A Theater for Holy Entertainment."

Armageddon is not a war of the world but a war of words: a polemic war with shock and awe as the meaning of mechanical Organon used by Jubal's family to bring on the first destruction.

Great tribulation flaunting "the holiness of sin" has accompanied the loss of faith at the end of each DAY period.

Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation,
        such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved:
         but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
Matthew 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets,
        and shall shew great signs and wonders;
        insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

A million Jews were cast into Tophet (tabret, tambourine) at the first fulfilment. Not one DISCIPLE of Christ was "burned" and the Jews are still looking for their Levites and the tens of thousands of HARPS which according to the Babylonian Prophetic type were "cast alive with their harps along with the king" 

The Spirit OF (preposition) Christ defines the Church in the Wilderness and the future REST after the Jew's Covenant with Death and Hell had been annulled with only a tiny remnant of faithful Jews:
Isaiah 14:9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming:
        it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth;
        it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

Madison as the result of the "Jubilee" intending to restructure ALL Churches of Christ was attacked by the Purpose Driven Cult and it appears that the godly elect were "raptured."  This is the end of the road for the Vision 20/20s in most of the assaulted churches of Christ.  Before the Jubilee "frog-boiling" process began Madison boasted that they had over 5000 members and lost only "50": These numbers did and may include 300 members in jail.

THE KINGDOM OF GOD DOES NOT COME WITH RELIGIOUS "OBSERVATIONS" AND THE WARNING IS STILL IN EFFECT

Matthew 24:25 Behold, I have told you before.
Matthew 24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you,
        Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth:
        behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
Matthew 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west;
         so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Matthew 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days
        shall the sun be darkened,
        and the moon shall not give her light,  [Bible replaced by Theology fit for OUR CHANGED CULTURE.]
        and the stars shall fall from heaven,    [The lucifer or ZOE types]
        and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Matthew 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
        and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn,
        and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Matthew 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet,
        and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
ALL of the SOUNDS-LIKE INSTRUMENT PASSAGES war of JUDGMENT and commands the godly--be they ever so scare--to GO and preach the gospel to ALL nations.

The Purpose Driven Locusts or MUSES are to COLLECT all of those with the MARK into large Mega-Groups and the GODLY will evaporate as if by magic. Rick Atchleys boasted of 6400 shrank to about 3500 counting both the MOTHER church and the DAUGHTER churches.  They have collected back up to about 4500 by SOUNDING THE TRUMPETS AND THE LOCUSTS-MUSES as Abaddon the Musical Worship Leader.

11.17.13 From Genesis to Revelation and more extreme in these end times (we pray) the Worship Wars have been between:

  1. The Civil-Military-Clergy Complex to which God abandoned the Jacob-Cursed Levites as Sorcerers because of INSTRUMENTAL IDOLATRY of the Egyptian triad under Apis (bull, demon 1 Cor 10).
              --As opposed to godly people who listened to and obeyed The Book of The Covenant of Grace which was the Abrahamic Covenant made by God in Christ.  Neither in The Book of The Covenant nor The Book of The Law are instrumental sounds permitted to intimidate people NOT to listen to that Covenant.   Christ in Numbers forbids it.
  2. Paul leapfrogs all of the "drunk on wine" or being piped or fluted down with wine and identified the tiny few who cannot be intimidated by the Jewish Civil-Military-Clergy. Jesus warned that those who speak the Word (Logos or Regulative Principle) as He articulated the Breath (Spirit) of the One Almighty, would be hated, despised, rejected and subject to attack.
  3. BEASTSS are a Massed Multitude or "A New Style of Music or Drama" which suddenly ATTACKS the songs and sermons already delivered "for our learning" and COMFORT.  The Purpose Driven Restoration defined by Christ from the wilderness onward was restored for a moment as:
           CHURCH is A School of Christ
           WORSHIP is Reading and Musing the Word
    The WORD is the LOGOS which defines the Regulative Principle: it is OPPOSITE of self-preaching, singing, playing instruments or drama. LOGOS OUTLAWS all of the Rhetorical WIND UP making the speaker or his experiences REPLACE the Resurrection.  Only the resurrection Proves that Jesus speaks for God, and He commanded that we teach and observe what HE commanded to be taught. Those who GO BEYOND do not have Christ and are therefore ANTI-Cross and ANTI-Logos delivered by Jesus of Nazareth and left for our "memory."
  4. If they boast about using MUSIC to teach our youth to leave our movement they are violating the direct command NOT to use the TRIUMPH OVER meaning "vocal or instrumental rejoicing or any self-speak." This was reserved to identify Judas as the Son of Perdition. Psalm  41 prophesied that the familiar friend (Judas) would try to TRIUMPH OVER Jesus.  Twp MARKS are:
             The Judas Bag was for carrying the mouthpieces of a wind instrument into which the thieves put their earnings.
            The SOP Jesus fed Judas caused Satan to enter in and destroy him as a failure: even Satan knew that SOP AND PSALLO have the same root meaning.



THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST DEFINED THE CHURCH BOTH INCLUSIVELY AND EXCLUSIVELY.

When Israel fell into instrumental idolatry of the Egyptian trinity, God turned them over to worship the starry host. Reading Acts 7 makes it clear that the transgression was musical idolatry when God had ordained only a day of REST: this rest quarantined them from the Apollo, Abaddon or Apollyon leader of the Muses common to all ANTI-Logos people OF the world for which Jesus refuses to pray. Throughout the Prophets by the Spirit OF Christ, He defines the church to specificially warn about the signs of those MUSICALLY MOCKING Him as a way to despise (blaspheme) The Holy Spirit OF Christ so that they could impose their own sorcery where music "makes the lambs dumb before the slaughter."  For instance, one of dozens of PATTERNS the WISE or SOPHIST impose. Unfortunately, God HIDES from the sophists meaning self-preaching, singing, playing instruments or acting. All of these are the marks of the effeminate or sexually abnormal.

ADDED 11.20.13 THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST DEFINED THE CHURCH OF CHRIST BOTH INCLUSIVELY AND EXCLUSIVELY IN THE PROPHETS.

However, Jesus does not even PRAY for the World or Kosmos whose worship is promoted by the NACC together with a few dupes from churches of Christ.  The kosmos is marked as one of the sects of Phythagoras in Romans 14: music was the of the spheres to which God abandoned Israel BECAUSE of instrumental idolatry at Mount Sinai.  Jesus said that God HIDES from the wise or SOPHISTS which defines all of the instrumental instrument "cunning craftsmanship."

JEREMIAH WHICH THEY WILL NOT LET YOU READ OR HEAR PREACHED BY THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST.

Jeremiah 11:17 For the LORD of hosts, that planted thee, hath pronounced evil against thee, for the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done against themselves to provoke me to anger in offering incense unto Baal.
Jeremiah 11:18 And the LORD hath given me knowledge of it, and I know it: then thou shewedst me their doings.
Jeremiah 11:19 But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter;
         and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying,
         Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living,
         that his name may be no more remembered.

Those who get a vision to MOCK JESUS in fulfillment of prophecy ALSO rush to remove CHRIST from their public confession.

is king over the bottemless pit which God prepared for him and the angels that followed him in his rebellion. Abaddon and his angels left their first estate, their own habitation; that is, they were not pleased with the posts and stations which the supreme God of the universe had assigned and allotted to them. They thought that they deserved better; namely, Gods will of satisfaction in the heavenly city.

Jude 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares,
        who were before of old ordained to this condemnation,
        ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,
        and denying the only Lord God [Theos], and our Lord [Kurios] Jesus Christ.
Jude 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this,
        how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt,
         afterward destroyed them that believed not[Instrumental Idolatry of a trinity]
Jude 6 And the angels which kept not their first estate,
        but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

H5656 ‛ăbôdâh ‛ăbôdâh ab-o-daw', ab-o-daw' From H5647 ; work of any kind:—act, bondage, + bondservant, effect, labour, ministering (-try), office, service (-ile, -itude), tillage, use, work, X wrought.
Their "prophesying with instruments" since they  were not writing prophets was soothing which is equated to SORCERY..
H10 ’ăbaddôh ab-ad-do' The same as H9 , miswritten for H11 ; a perishing:—destruction.
H9 ’ăbêdâh ab-ay-daw' From H6 ; concretely something lost; abstractly destruction, that is Hades:—lost. Compare H10 .
H11 ’ăbaddôn ab-ad-done' Intensively from H6 ; abstractly a perishing; concretely Hades:—destruction.
H6 ’âbad to wander away, that is lose oneself; by implication to perish

The Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned Levites used instruments as Soothsayers-Sorcerers.  Their loud instrumental noise while burning goats or infants was a PROPHETIC TYPE of how God would destroy them in hell: the MARKS in sight and sound will be be wind, string and percussion instruments says Christ in Isaiah 30

APOLLO, ABADDON, APOLLYON IS THE LEADERS OF THE MUSICIANS.  The Sudden and hostile attack of the musical performers (hypocrites says Christ in Ezekiel 33) was prepared and ready by the Jubilee and other such efforts in a call of the Pope for Jubilee Y2K. This is the only literal time frame for the END of the Six Days and a Great Tribulation.  This is prophesied of Apollo (Abaddon, Apollyon) as the PATTERN for the end time:

Revelation 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth:
        and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
Revelation 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit,
        as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
Revelation 9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth:
        and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth,
         neither any green thing, neither any tree;
        but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
Revelation 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them,
        but that they should be tormented five months:
         and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
Revelation 9:11 And they had a king over them,
        which is the angel of the bottomless pit,
        whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
Revelation 9:21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries [pharmakōn], nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

The Muses (musicians), instrument players and craftsmen (any religious teknokrat selling the free water of the Word) are called SORCERERS.pharmakōn
John said that they HAD deceived the whole world but had been emprisoned until now in a church near you. They WILL not stop "because their time is short." How could you doubt it when they will lie, cheat and steal the church house of widows to make a place for their locusts. Sowing discord is no concern to them

WHEN-AT THE RIGHT TIME-THE MUSICAL WORSHIP MINISTERS INTENDING INSTRUMENTS THEY ARE ABADDON OR APOLLYON

JOHN AND EVEN THE COMMON PEOPLE UNDERSTOOD WHAT HE MEANT. He could see the grave of Circe from which we get the word Church from Patmos. Circe was one of the Holy Whore who turned men into BEASTS and fed them on well- kneaded Dung Balls.

Mousagetēs 1 doric for Mousēgetēs leader of the Muses, Lat. Musagetes, of Apollo, Plat 1 Mous-a_getēs, ou, ho,

Strabo Geography [-10.3.10] And on this account Plato, and even before his time
        the
Pythagoreians, called philosophy music 

and they say that the universe is constituted in accordance with harmony,
assuming that every form of music is the work of the gods.
And in this sense, also, the
Muses are goddesses,
and
Apollo is leader of the Muses,
and
poetry as a whole is laudatory of the gods.

And by the same course of reasoning they also attribute to music the upbuilding of morals, believing that everything which tends to correct the mind is close to the gods.

Now most of the Greeks assigned to Dionysus, Apollo, Hecate, the Muses (9 women team), and above all to Demeter, everything of an orgiastic or Bacchic or choral nature, as well as the mystic element in initiations; and they give the name "Iacchus" not only to Dionysus but also to the leader-in-chief of the mysteries, who is the genius of Demeter.

The Damsel who had a spirit or divination or Sorcery was NOT defended by Paul
Plutarch the Pythian Oracle 5: Yet the god [Apollo] is Leader of the Muses, and it is right and fair that he should take no less interest in what is called elegance of diction than in the sweetness of sound that is concerned with tunes and songs, and that his utterances should surpass Hesiod and Homer in the excellence of their versification. Yet we observe that most of the oracles are full of metrical and verbal errors and barren diction.’
Apollo, Abaddon or Apollyon has the MUSES as His Musical Worship team.  The Muses and and Graces were known as dirty prostitutes and it is interest that Paul equated "corrupting the Word" or selling learning at retail as PROSTITUTION.

No one in recorded history was ignorant that the sounds of brass, plucked strings and pipes or flutes took the rational or siritual mind CAPTIVE so that men like Jubal or Nimrod knew how to steal other people's property.  The WORLD or KOSMOS for which Jesus will not pray is also marked by the "supernatural" sounds of wind, string and percussion instruments.  The Spirit OF Christ said that Lucifer (the halal word) was CAST AS PROFANE out of heaven and showed up in the garden of Eden as the Singing and Harp-Playing Prostitute. She-he-it shows up again at just the right time as the Babylon Mother of Harlots.  Again at the right time Science understands why music AGITATES and TEACHES LIES:
Not surprisingly, the theory is a radical-some might say crazy-departure from the past, being based on tiny strings vibrating in 10-dimensional space-time… In superstring theory, the subatomic particles we see in nature are nothing more than different resonances of the vibrating superstrings, in the same way that different musical notes emanate from the different modes of vibration of a violin string.”
And branch-bearing, choral dancing, and initiations are common elements in the worship of these gods.
        As for the Muses and Apollo
the Muses (female pastors) preside over the choruses,
whereas
Apollo presides both over these and the rites of divination.

But all educated men, and especially the musicians, are ministers of the Muses;

and both these and those who have to do with divination are ministers of Apollo;
and the
initiated and torch-bearers and hierophants, of Demeter; and the Sileni and Satyri and Bacchae, and also the Lenae and Thyiae and Mimallones and Naïdes and Nymphae and the beings called Tityri, of Dionysus.
[10.3.11] In Crete, not only these rites, but in particular those sacred to Zeus, were performed

along with orgiastic worship and
with the
kind of ministers who were in the service of Dionysus, (Coroi, youth) mean the Satyri (Gender-bent musical Pan types).

Strabo 14.2.[26] Alabanda is also situated at the foot of hills, two hills that are joined together in such a way that they present the appearance of an ass laden with panniers. And indeed Apollonius Malacus, in ridiculing the city both in regard to this and in regard to the large number of scorpions there, said that it was an "ass laden with panniers of scorpions." Both this city and Mylasa are full of these creatures, and so is the whole of the mountainous country between them. Alabanda is a city of people who live in luxury and debauchery, containing many girls who play the harp.

Plato Protagoras: Socrates [347d] such is their lack of education--put a premium on flute-girls by hiring the extraneous voice of the flute at a high price, and carry on their intercourse by means of its utterance.

But where the party consists of thorough gentlemen who have had a proper education, you will see neither flute-girls [aulêtridas] nor dancing-girls [orchêstridas] nor harp-girls,

but only the company contenting themselves with their own conversation, and none of these fooleries and frolics--each speaking and listening decently in his turn,

Pi.P.6.9 Listen! for we are again ploughing the field of dark-eyed Aphrodite, or of the Graces, as we approach the sacred navel of the loud-roaring land; [5] where, for the prosperous Emmenids and Acragas on the river, and especially for Xenocrates, a Pythian victor's treasure-house of songs has been built and is ready in the glen of Apollo, rich in gold.

The SOUNDS of rhetoric, singing, playing, acting or any religious craftsmanship is called SORCERY by John and the next step is being Cast Alive into the Lake of Fire. These hypocritic performers are REMOVED at the same time the LAMPS or Seven Spirits Of Christ are removed: The AMOS Prophetic type has God saying "I will NOT pass by Again." Those OF the World or instrumental sectarians have little choice: Jesus is still testing us.

Mark 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise,
        and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

Lying Wonders are religious observations with music, rhetoric, drama or anything claiming to "bring the worshipers into the presence of God."

Symp. 2. 1 erkhetai tis autois epi kōmon (revel) Surakosios anthrōpos, ekhōn te aulētrida agathēn kai orkhēstrida (dancing-girl) tōn ta thaumata  [Lying Wonder] dunamenōn poiein kai paida panu ge hōraion kai panu kalōs kitharizonta kai orkhoumenon. These show their skill during the whole banquet. Plato, however, has the same view as the one here, when he says Symp. 176 e eisēgoumai tēn men arti eiselthousan aulētrida khairein ean, aulousan heautē, ē an boulētai tais gunaixi tais endon, hēmas de dia logōn allēlois suneinai to tēmeron.

Revelation 14:2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and the voice which I heard was LIKE the voice of harpers harping with their harps:

Mark 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
Mark 13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation,
        the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

Knowledge will be dried up and the people will be taken captive because of lack of Knowledge. (Amos 8, Isaiah 7)

Mark 13:25 And the stars of heaven shall fall,
        and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

Hebrews 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:
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

The Kingdom or true Church of Christ is the Kingdom and CANNOT be shaken by the Devil.
The Kingdom is within and DOES NOT come with observation meaning Legalistic Performance Observations.
That is the ABSOLUTE sign that God is preparing a pit.

Mark 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
Mark 13:27 And then shall he send his angels,
         and shall gather together his ELECT from the four winds,
         from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

The ELECT are called OUT of the World (for which Jesus will not pray and INTO the Ekklesia which is a School (only) of the Word (only) by direct command from the wilderness onward.  The Musical Invaders have had little effect among Churches of Christ although the Worship Team without instruments singing their own "scripture" is disqualified as the ELECT. 

 CONGRATULATIONS: The BEAST is defined as a New Style of Music or Drama.

9.08.13 All of the Bible and other recorded documents--especially The Book of Enoch--proves that Satan causes people to fall away from the Living Word and into the company of the Cainites whose name means "a musical note." A MARK if you wish. The beast in Revelation defines the Satyric Dramas and forcing A New Style of Music or Drama.  Plato warned that this is always the MARK of people intending to change the laws by introducing music first as entertainment.

Why do you suppose that a singular person can exercise such unholy authority over a whole group of men?

After being warned including Israel in Exodus 32, those who identify the worship of God with musical or other hypocritic arts "have fallen and can never get up."  People led by an EVIL SPIRIT have no need or perhaps ability to repent.  This is laid out in BLACK text on BROWN Paper so we might look up and rejoice.  Jesus died to give us REST from the laded burdens which are arousal songs especially a repeating form intending to enchant and NOT to education. Rest or PAUO is dedicated to meaning SILENCE the talk (men and women), silence the singing, silence the music meaning silence the PANIC or religious spectacle

Dionysus or Bacchus was the God of new wine from New Wineskins. The Abomination of Desolation in the Intertestament Period introduced the Gymnasium and the homosexual worship of Zeus or Dionysus. The clergy also hoped that John wore the SOFT clothing of the king's catamite or male homosexual. Jesus identified them as PIPING hoping to get Jesus into the homosexual singing and dancing of the New Wineskins "god." The Judas Bag is defined and pictured in Greek literature and art as for "carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments." The little box on the spotted flute case is the Judas Bag. These homosexual gods were the fathers of "musical harmony, twanging bowstrings or harp strings, thieves and liars." The Jewish clergy HOPED that Jesus would join them in all of their boyhood games as the "piped" hoping that he was the God of Wine and therefore the "god" who filled the new wineskin.

They believed that their messiah would be the same Dionysus of the Mount Sinai musical idolatry. To test him they PIPED hoping that he would take the initiation into the gay priesthood and sing or lament or dance. That initiation was very painful like bowing to Baal.

The REST promise by Messiah was a "umbrellum" which meant that the Church of Christ would be a SAFE HOUSE out of the blasts of wind (hot air) and other troubles of the World. Too bad that the WORLD had invaded the safe houses.

        that where I am, there ye may be also.

THE TIME AND SIGNS ARE RIGHT FOR THE UNLEASING OF THE LOCUSTS OR ABADDON'S MUSICAL WORSHIP TEAM: ADULTERERS AND SORCERERS.

Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you,
        having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Jesus said that the sons of the Devil "speak on their own."
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 

Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees (all teknokrats), Hypocrites.  In Ezekiel 33 the Spirit OF Christ names self-speakers, singers and instrument players. These were the MARKS of people who spoke on their own and had no intention of obeying the Words of God. In Revelation 18 the Lamb called them Sorcerers who HAD deceived the whole world.  Anyone who would lie to God and about God to IMPOSE the BEASTS defined as "A new style of music and drama" as peforming the SATYRIC DRAMA, could really be dangerous.

Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman,

ACU and the NACC with Randy Harris and Rick Atchley will teach you how to do COSMIC WORSHIP.  The MARK of the Worship of the Starry Host (ie Judaism) is:

II. ornament, decoration, especially. of women, [wearing of apparel means CLERGY GARB."

God ABANDONED Israel because the engaged in Musical Idolatry of the Egyptian trinity. This did and does both mark and produce immorality as Paul in Romans 10 makes clear. God ABANDONED Israel because of musical idolatry.

The Testimony of Christ is the Spirit of Prophets: That is why the Word of Christ IS the Spirit for us.

Therefore, those hearing a "spirit" tell them that God's abandonment is THEIR command to repeat the same pattern of abandonment may actually be hearing God tell them that they are beyond redemption.


Most of the massive sowing of discord got its first launch by Max Lucado not recognized as a Member of the Church of Christ.  However, the AGENT who has been ELEVATED by ACU, Pepperdine and the NACC triad is Rick Atchley.  Rick was known to be leading HIS church into using instruments but after more than a decade A SPIRIT told Him that he needed to DELIVER HIS MESSAGE. No one can hint that music is an element in the School of Christ from the wilderness onward without being led by an EVIL SPIRIT.

He-they have to HIDE the fact that God abandoned Israel to the Worship of the Starry host because of musical idolatry or DEMON worship at Mount Sinai.  1 Corinthians 10

BUNKO, says Jesus: Jehovah is the Father and MY Words are SPIRIT

1 The daemons or divine SPIRITS had their existence and activity“ betwixt mortal and immortal,”and they served as interpreters and conveyors of men's prayers and offerings to the gods, and of the god's behests and requitals to men(Plato, Sympos. 202 D). Good mortals might become daemons after death(Eurip.Alc. 1003; Plato, Cratyl. 398 B; Lucian, De morte Peregr. 36), and such as they were charged with the guidance and care of mankind(Plato, Laws 713 D; Plutarch, De genio Socr. 588 C).

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

2 The “journey across” seems to refer to one part of the“conveying” that daemons performed—conducting the souls of deceased human beings from earth to the abode of the gods.

9.06.13 Scripture and other recorded history is complete: anyone who brings instrumental sounds of wind, string and percussion into your assembly is Purpose Driven to do two things God hates: musicians or music in your holy places and men or women who deliberately sows discord.  Assuming that anyone who has minimal Bible or recorded history MUST be aware that they are lying to God and about God when they say that He "commanded instrumental praise" or when they say that God never condemned "vocal or instrumental rejoicing including rhetoric" when God calls the godly into assembly.  There is no recorded history we have found trying or needing to impose instruments who used the Scriptures to try to authorize deliberate sectarianism before the Disciples-Christians in the year 1878.  We are forced to agree with recorded history beginning with clay tablets some 2,000 years old before Moses was born that musical performers INTEND to hurt, destroy or steal your physical or spiritual inheritance.  Halel or Chalel means to "play the flute, steal your inheritance, pollute or prostitute."  Lucifer was "cast as profane (h2490) into the Garden of Eden as the singing and harp-playing prostitute.  That's why they intend to ignore all recorded facts "because their time is short."

8.29.13  Jesus said that God HIDES from the wise or sophists meaning rhetoricians, singers and instrument players.  It was the woman at the well who was literate enough that she knew that "when Messias comes He will TELL us all things."  According to Christ in the wilderness and the Campbells,

CHURCH is A School of Christ
WORSHIP is READING and MUSING the Word.

That is the meaning of doing the ODING and PSALLO be IN the heart to prevent the commanded task to SPEAK that which is written for our learning.  Since there are no churches which PREACH by READING the Words of Christ, it may not matter what else you do.

A Christian teaches and observes what Jesus commanded to be taught. When the Father breathed (Spirit) into Jesus he SPOKE the very words of God.  You do or you don't: there is no partnership. Jesus told the Apostles that if they spoke the Word they too would be despised and rejected of men: you cannot be popular.  That becomes easier when you understand that over and over the command is to SUBDUE body worship by forcing both male and female to be silent so that "everyone might be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth."   Psallo has never and can never mean "musical melody." When you grind the spoken word you MEDITATE.  Meletao is the command: not Melos. That's good because "melody as tunefulness belongs to the nineteenth century and has no connection to HARMONY.  Paul says it over and over.

9.04.13 Paul said that worship is IN THE SPIRIT as opposed to IN THE FLESH. The purpose of worshiping iN the Spirit which is UNIQUELY giving attention to the Word of God where both male and female are SILENT so that "we might all be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth."  The sudden attack of the Instrumental Worship discorders is specificially identified so we can MARK and AVOID.  Because the ACU crew has boasted about keeping everyone ignorant for more than a decade we KNOW that these people are the wise or sophists (speakers, singers, instrument players) from Who God HIDES.  Paul also agreed with recorded history that the musical performers are gender-conflicted and pass the "female disease" on to others. They are PURPOSE DRIVEN and may have no choice left.

  2. Meditating or rehearsing the Word as the ONLY way that it sticks in the mind.

When we go to Chemistry class we READ or HEAR the lesson for the day. We go home and rehearse, meditate or "speak to ourself."  Nothing is learned by hearing a sermon or a musical performance: Christ and the Campbells called church A School of Christ.  It has no other role and no dole to support it if you invent it. The Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites says Jesus quoting the Spirit OF Christ in Ezekiel 33 are self-speakers, singers and instrument players.

As noted in the PLAY words music and sexuality of women or effeminate males is the universal mark.

"Asherah (symbolized by errect poles with fertility symbols pouring out the top): She is the Queen of Heaven, in other languages and ages identified as Ashtoreth, Athirat, Astarte, and Ishtar. Yahweh, the Hebrew God elevated to become the sole deity , was Her consort. Her "male" priestesses were known as kelabim, the faithful "dogs" of the Goddess, "who practiced divinatory arts, danced in processions, and served as hierodules, qedeshim, in the company of other priestesses. Elements of the goddess worship were largely erased in a cultural purge c. 630 BCE by King Yosiah, at the behest of Yahweh's priests, who required supremacy.

"I would argue that in Greek tragedy the cross-dressed actor was crucial, a sign of the conventional nature of the drama. Male playing female is inevitably distanced from the role and makes it clear that the role of the woman is an idealization, not a realization.

In addition the male playing female indicates a possible relevance of the form to dionysus, a god associated with masks and characterized by softness, woman's curls and dress (Bacchae) and worshipped with transvestite ceremonies at the Oschophoria (Seaford; Segal 1982: 10-20, 158- 68, 214).

CHURCH as holy harlot “Carminibus Circe socios mutavit Ulixi,

"In certain ancient Israelite prophetic groups, music was used to achieve the ecstatic state, in which the participants, in their accompanying dancing, were believed to have been seized by the hand of Yahweh, the God of Israel, as in the case of Saul, the 11th-century-bc king of Israel.

The Pythia (priestess) of the Greek oracle at Delphi often went into an ecstatic state during which she uttered sounds revealed to her by the python (the snake, the symbol of resurrection), after drinking water from a certain spring.

Her "words" were then interpreted by a priest to help a suppliant find a way to avoid calamities, especially death. In primitive religions, ecstasy was a technique highly developed by shamans, religious personages with healing and psychic-transformation powers, in their "soul," or "spirit," flights. (See Delphic oracle.) "ecstasy" Encyclopædia Britannica Online

Ezekiel 33:30 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the LORD.
Ezekiel 33:31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh,
         and they sit before thee as my people,
                and they hear thy words, but they will not do them:
        for with their mouth they shew much love,
             but their heart goeth after their covetousness.

The Spirit OF Christ used the worst possible example of people who refuse to hear the Words of Christ and get paid to speak their own words.

Ezekiel 33:32 And, lo, thou art unto them
        as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice,
        and can play well on an instrument:
        for they hear thy words, but they do them not.
Ezekiel 33:33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,)
        then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.


The serpent in the garden of Eden was a musical enchanter(ess): The Spirit OF Christ called Lucifer the singing and harp playing prostitute in the garden of Eden.   That is bracketed by the Babylon Mother of Harlots in Revelation 17 uses lusted after fruits (same as in Amos 8) as speakers, singers and instrument players.  John called them sorcerers using the term for the original mother of harlots in Babylon and says that they will be cast alive into the lake of fire.  Judas did not know that he was the prophetic "friend" of Messiah in Isaiah 41 until Jesus fed him the SOP which has the same root meaning of PSALLO.  Psallo was first outed in the year 1835 and used to say that God commanded the use of instrumental noise in what the Campbells called A School of Christ.

"But we have already spoken of spectacles: there remains one thing which is to be overcome by us,
        that we be not captivated by those things which penetrate to the innermost perception. (emotions only)

        For all those things which are
unconnected with words, (just speaking in tongues)
        that is,
pleasant sounds of the air and of strings,
        may be easily disregarded, because they do not adhere to us, and cannot be written...

Is God, therefore, the contriver both of the mind, and of the voice,
        and of the
tongues, unable to speak eloquently?
        Yea, rather, with the greatest foresight,

        He wished those things which are divine to be without adornment,
        that all might understand the things which He Himself spoke to all." 

Therefore God made all things to supply a contest between two things.
       
Those enticements of pleasures, then, are the instruments 
        of that whose only business it is to subdue virtue,
        and to shut out justice from men.

        With these soothing influences and enjoyments it captivates their souls;
        for it knows that pleasure is the contriver of death.
        (Lactantius, The Divine Institutes, Ante-Nicene Fathers, VII, p. 188
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.

[4] The same thing occurs in other cases when a man tries to do two things at once; the pleasanter activity drives out the other, the more so if it is much more pleasant, until the other activity ceases altogether.

Hence, when we enjoy something very much, we can hardly do anything else; and when we find a thing only mildly agreeable, we turn to some other occupation; for instance, people who eat sweets at the theater do so especially when the acting is bad.

[ 5] And since our activities [of the flute] are sharpened, prolonged and improved by their own pleasure, and impaired by the pleasures of other activities, it is clear that pleasures differ widely from each other. In fact alien pleasures have almost the same effect on the activities as their own pains; since, when an activity causes pain, this pain destroys it, for instance, if a person finds writing or doing sums unpleasant and irksome; for he stops writing or doing sums, because the activity is painful.

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;
        for amusement does not go with learning--learning is a painful process.


BUT, YOU SAID THAT IF YOU HAD BEEN THERE YOU WOULD NOT HAVE MUSICALLY MOCKED JESUS AT THE FOOT OF THE OLD RUGGED CROSS.  WELL, YOU'VE BEEN THERE--DONE THAT AND JESUS WARNED YOU THAT DOCTORS OF THE LAW TAKE AWAY THE KEY TO KNOWLEDGE.

The Church in the wilderness was a School of the Word: vocal or instrumental rejoicing or self-speak was outlawed as the MARKS of people perhaps assigned to "keep the lambs dumb before the slaughter."

Revised 8.16.13

Theologians (Doctors of the Law) took over once-Christian Colleges the staff and most of the influence flooded in boasting of "Exercising Prophetic roles as Channellers to train advanced degrees to go out and facilitate (manipulate) the demise of conservative churches of Christ.  That translates into ANTI-instrumentalist who REFUSE to Affirm instruments or Conform by joining the "unity" movement. Those who refuse to Affirm and continue to teach the olden Text (pre post modern) have been declared subject to any means, fair or foul, to "infiltrate and divert."  Jesus thus defined the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites meaning in Ezekiel 33 self-speakers, singers and instrument players.

Jesus will ask "WHY have you agreed among yourselves to blaspheme the Holy Spirit OF Christ in the prophets by saying that GOD has commanded your movement to claim that GOD COMMANDED INSTRUMENTAL PRAISE and YOU had better not be disobedien"t?  Jesus left THE MARK of A Church (school) of Christ and that is why those with no role and no dole are so anxious to use MUSIC which means "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."  This sorcery or witchcraft is recorded on clay tablets some up to 2,000 years old when Moses wrote his WARNING.  The eternal story is of a goddess getting the father god drunk and stealing all of the ME or magical powers including "the power of the eldership, the power of musical instruments and the power of stroking the private parts" which is proven by medical science.  The Spirit OF Christ  proved that it was the WOMEN who led the worship in Ezekiel 8

        She rears her ugly head in Revelation 17 and uses "lusted after fruits" (same as in Amos 8) as speakers, singers and instrument players.  John calls them sorcerers who HAD once deceived the whole world.   The MARKS are that Christ removes the Lamps or seven Spirits OF Christ (Isaiah 11) at the same time the rhetoricians, singers and instrument players. The next act is that they will be cast alive into the lake of fire.  Christ gave us the PROPHETIC type in Isaiah 30

The MARKS in sight and sound of God driving His enemies into "hell" are wind, string and percussion instruments.  These are the same instruments the "singing and harp-playing prostitute" brought into the Garden of Eden when He-She-It was "cast as profane" (that praise word) out of God's presence.

Civil Greek Society promised to "tar and feather" any person who came into their community wanting to sell their speeches, poems and music and whatever need you have.

ABSOLUTE MARKS OF A CHURCH (SCHOOL) OF CHRIST

John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own:
        but because ye are not of the world,
        but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
John 15:20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord.
        If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you;
        if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
John 15:21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake,
        because they know not him that sent me.
John 15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin:
         but now they have no cloke for their sin.
John 15:23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

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]
        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.

For it seems to me that arguing about poetry is comparable to the wine-parties of common market-folk. These people, owing to their inability to carry on a familiar conversation over their wine by means of their own voices and discussions

DON'T GET DRUNK ON WINE OR IGNORANCE

Plat. Prot. 347d such is their lack of education—put a premium on flute-girls by hiring the extraneous voice of the flute at a high price, and carry on their intercourse by means of its utterance.

THE COMMAND FOR THE EKKLESIA OR CHURCH
But where the party consists of thorough gentlemen who have had a proper education, you will see neither flute-girls nor dancing-girls nor harp-girls,
        but only the company contenting themselves with their own conversation,
        and none of these fooleries and frolics—
        each speaking and listening decently in his turn,

Because the ROLE of the synagogue--ekklesia is to SPEAK one to another that which is written for our learning. NOTHING written for our learning is set to a meter and cannot be sung tunefully.  Rather, the  synagogue or COME TOGETHER is for the SYLLOGISM or reading the WORD and coming to an agreement; A DISCIPLE of Christ is a student of Christ and does not do music in any modern sense.

"[4] The same thing occurs in other cases when a man tries to do two things at once; the pleasanter activity drives out the other, the more so if it is much more pleasant, until the other activity ceases altogether.

Jim Hackney and all of those imposing "instrumental worship" contend that if you ADD instruments to the SINGING they you are still SINGING: those who want to sing cannot hinder those who want to sing AND worship the muses--sorcerers, adulteresses.  However, everyone knows that you cannot do two things at the same time. Therefore, the object is to ultimately silence the SINGING which has no Biblical roots and force everyone to worship the MUSES which is proof that Abaddon has unleashed the LOCUSTS or his musicla worship team.


"Hence, when we enjoy something very much, we can hardly do anything else; and when we find a thing only mildly agreeable, we turn to some other occupation; for instance, people who eat sweets at the theater do so
especially when the acting is bad.

[
5] And since our activities [of the flute] are sharpened, prolonged and improved by their own pleasure, and impaired by the pleasures of other activities, it is clear that pleasures differ widely from each other. In fact alien pleasures have almost the same effect on the activities as their own pains; since, when an activity causes pain, this pain destroys it, for instance, if a person finds writing or doing sums unpleasant and irksome; for he stops writing or doing sums, because the activity is painful.

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;
        for amusement does not go with learning--learning is a painful process.


Jesus said that preaching the Word is a painful process: it will get you despised, rejected and killed.

Learning is a painful process: that is why THEOLOGY has replaced the WORD and you can just parott what the doctors of the Law tell you and force you to confess to make YOU a doctor of the law so that YOU can take away the key to knowledllge.

Never get neutered by a "musical worship service" which the texts Paul and John read trying to SILENCE the Words of Christ in song and sermon:

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him:
        for he that cometh to God must believe that he is,
        and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. [ekzēt-eō ,]
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.
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 Spirit (WORD John 6:63) 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;


nēphōn methuonta hupo tēs Aphroditēs theataiX.Smp.8.21;
IT WOULD BE NICE IF ANY ONE WHO HAS CONSPIRED TO "STEAL THE CHURCH HOUSE OF WIDOWS" WOULD GIVE A REASON FOR THE HOPE THAT LIES IN YOU.

Why The Bible and the most archaic tribal societies called any musical performance sorcery or witchcraft.  And yet purpose driven people say that God commanded the role of sorcerers and sexual arousers as worship to Him: certainly the Vineyard and Wineskins pattern is to fource you into a sexual- like climax with God. 

The Neuroscience Of Music  When listening to our favorite songs, our body betrays all the symptoms of emotional arousal. The pupils in our eyes dilate, our pulse and blood pressure rise, the electrical conductance of our skin is lowered, and the cerebellum, a brain region associated with bodily movement, becomes strangely active. Blood is even re-directed to the muscles in our legs. (Some speculate that this is why we begin tapping our feet.) In other words, sound stirs us at our biological roots. As Schopenhauer wrote, “It is we ourselves who are tortured by the strings.”

Because the scientists were combining methodologies (PET and fMRI) they were able to obtain an impressively precise portrait of music in the brain. The first thing they discovered (using ligand-based PET) is that music triggers the release of dopamine in both the dorsal and ventral striatum. This isn’t particularly surprising: these regions have long been associated with the response to pleasurable stimuli. It doesn’t matter if we’re having sex or snorting cocaine or listening to Kanye: These things fill us with bliss because they tickle these cells. Happiness begins here.

Perhaps Lynn Anderson has been the primary leader of NAVIGATING THE WINDS OF CHANGE.  His method violating Ephesians 4 is to BLOW the winds of change. He warns you to PUSH the flock as close to the BRINK (edge of the cliff) as possible without getting fired.  If you overshoot, back up and preacher conservative sermons and wait for another chance to BLOW the winds.  He and family have accumulated all of the mentions of an instrument in the Bible and claimed, with Rick Atchley, that GOD COMMANDED INSTRUMENTAL PRAISE (whatever that be) and WE must not be disobedient. That is, from O.E.Payne onward the lie was that PSALLO demanded singing out loud and making melody WITH a harp which proves the warnings of Jesus that the '"octors of the law taken away the key to knowledge." He called them Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites.  In the Ezekiel 33 prophecy where the Spirit OF Christ defined the future REST from ceremony both inclusively and exclusively.  He named self-speakers, singers, instrument players and the audience: The MONEY means ENTERTAINMENT was the only meaning.

Lynn Anderson is a MAIN MAN at Lipscomb this year.  The PATTERN is to DIVERT you into the same Monarchy with a "senior pastor set over you replacing the elders" BECAUSE God has turned them over to worship the STARRY HOST which was BABYLONIANISM because musical idolatry at Mount Sinai REQUESTED that God sentenced them to "beyond Babylon" which meant no return, no redemption.

Lynn Anderson (family) and the main authority for deliberately sowing discord. I was informed that this was the "white paper" delivered to the Oak Hill's elders which seduced them into "quiet strings in a separate room" to a full blown Rock and Roll performance.  Lynn Anderson's metodology and even key words are identical to neo-paganism or Wicca.

The Greeks knew that the LOGOS or Word people were radically opposed and attacked by the SOPHIA and Eros musical ritual people.

I Dogmatically Assert: you deny it: you cannot use the MUSIC word in what Christ in the wilderness, all of the New Testament and the Campbells called A School of Christ without lying to God and about God. 

  1. If you say that God commands instruments when HIS word is on the agenda
  2. And God DID NOT command but REPUDIATED
  3. Then the Spirit OF Christ in the prophets such as Jeremiah 23 says that you have blasphemed the Holy Spirit OF Christ

If the Lynn Anderson's SAFE SERMONS claim that The Holy Spirit must CALL you [Brock Paulk] and do everything to SAVE you, don't believe it

        except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
        and I will raise him up at the last day.

But, Jesus certifying the Prophets by the Spirit OF Christ:
John 6:45 It is written in the prophets,
        And they shall be all [1] taught of God.
        Every man therefore that hath [2] heard,
        and hath [3] learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

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.

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
        the WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are life.

If you are hearing voices then get help quickly: there is a sin unto death

Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were [3] baptized:
        and the same day there were
        [4] added unto them about three thousand souls.
Acts 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people.
        And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

Baptism saves us FROM the Crooked Race and adds us to His School of the Word: you cannot become a Student of Christ in the Prophets and Apostles by believing that Jesus exists.

No, George it does not say sing and make music WITH a harp.  Note the difference in spelling. Note prepositional phrase.

The PATTERN of men claiming authority to BIND AND LOOSE and warning you not to question the MOVE OF GOD, has happened in all Bible Based religious groups at about the same time.  Music was proposed as a way to drive you into DISSOCIATION to make you HATE your church and ancestors. This intimidates and makes you fearful to question being taken captive.  Beginning with Rubel Shelly (Max Lucado, Rick Atchley etal) the AZTEC pattern was used for their JUBILEE every 52 weaks and every 52 years when ALL of the old houses were burned down. They sacrificed up to 20,000 of the captive. Then they sacrificed one, cut out his heart and RELIT the fires in his breast. This 'holy fire' was carried to all of the REBUILT houses and the fires relit.  ACU professor Called for God's Holy Fire to fall.  It did but mostly only in the churches of the original plotters.

Christ ordained ELDERS in the plural sense.  Even in pagan groups no major change or movement was made without ALL of the tribal elders agreeing.
Forcing numerous elders to RESIGN so that you can have AGREEMENT is tyranny at its worst.  Jesus said that the rulers SERVE and they have no authority to dominate.  If you SOW DISCORD among the elders not APT to teach that which has been taught then you have sown discord and God hates you. In Revelation 18 the message of Jesus Christ in His Holy Spirit Role is that imposed speakers, singers and instrument players under the Babylon Mother of harlots are REMOVED and Jesus has been there and will not pass by again to REMOVE THE LAMPS: the Seven Spirits OF Divine knowledge (Isaiah 11). He calls them SORCERERS who HAD already deceived the Whole World and have been unleashed "because they know that their time is short."

THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST WARNS:

Isaiah 23:15 And it shall come to pass in that day,
        that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot.

How does a harlot sing:

Isaiah 23:16 Take an [1] harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten; [3] make sweet melody, [3] sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered.

Ezekiel 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him,
        Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
Ezekiel 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius,
        topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold:
        the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. [cast as profane]
Ezekiel 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Ezekiel 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
Ezekiel 28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

Cast as PROFANE is the cHALAL or HALAL praise word by which the warriors threatened to Rob, Rape and Rapture the enemies is they didbn't turn coward and run.

You can refute my claim that ALL of the false teaching about "instruments" has a direct source from the NACC and fed by Rick Atchley who was informed and handled by David Faust of the NACC.  In all cases where people speak of "unity" they come prepared with a "white paper" listing all of the mentions of instruments in the Bible.  As expected, the latest spawn of preachers (taught to leave our movement) do not have the background or interest in saying that any suggestion that God does not RADICALLY associate the magical sounds of "strings" and "bell metal" (the serpent) is defined as a LIE: it is 100% false and it intends to sow discord so the instrumentalists are there to pick the bones.

Rick Atchley:
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!

ACU and Pepperdine work with the NACC to "train young preachers" to defect.


As we prepare the future of Bible Lectures and Church Relations at Pepperdine, Mike Cope and I are committed to doing all we can to build a network around and supportive programs for these young preachers. Though they have freed themselves from sectarian constrains, many have chosen to stay with their churches. At least  for now. In the coming years, churches of Christ will need to respond, demonstrably, to the Restoration cry coming from this young generation and in so doing may restore their full role of influence in the unfolding Christian story.

The NOMOS or LEGALISM word points only to the Levites who performed as SOOTHSAYER-SORCERERS with Instruments making noise.

Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

The NOMOS or LEGALISM word points to Apollo, Abaddon or Apollyon from the fall into musical idolatry which continued the worship they had performed for over 400 years in Egypt.

Is there any TRICK OF ART more WORKS INTENSIVE that Musical Performances? 

You will find no recorded history beginning with clay tablets which does not connect Religious Music and Musicans with the emasculated priests of the Mother Goddess.

"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.

Paul in Galatians 5 connects the MARKS of the emasculated (literally or spiritually) with Witchcraft which RECRUCIFIES Christ

It is not possible to be a Christian without knowing that a Christian is a DISCIPLE of Christ (only).  A Disciple of Christ is not LADED with religious observations because said that the Kingdom does not come with religious observations. The REST Jesus died to remove shuts down rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or collecting a tax "not in war." Jesus paid it all.  For one shining moment, the Campbells restored
        the Church of Christ is A School of Christ: No, the Declaration and Address rejects "unity with the sects."
        Worship is Reading the Word of God and Musing it.
                That means SPEAK that which is written
                Sing and Meditate (Mele not Melos) IN the Heart which is a PLACE.

After the fall into terminal musical idolatry at Mount Sinai, God abandoned the Jacob-cursed Levites to worship the starry host: God did not command the king, kingdom, priesthood, animal slaugther or the Levites performing as soothsayer-sorcerers making a great noise because of mortal fear of their NEWLY CHOSEN gods.  The Church of Christ (the Rock) was ordained for all of the godly people who commanded to be executed if they were near or in any of the "holy places."  Vocal or instrumental rejoicing was forbidden so that even the simple simons lacking reverence could not interfere with the Word (only) of God (only) as the SOLE person for Qahal, synagogue, Ekklesia or Church.  Jesus would identify the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites: in Ezekiel 33 hypocrites are preachers, singers and instrument players.  The ORGAN was a mark of unnatural love marked by MEN acting as BOYS as Christ prophesied in Isaiah 3 ruling over you.

I have added more than anyone wants to read: this is to prove that an Disciple can see the mountains of evidence connecting religious music to sorcerers while those willing to "infiltrate and divert" your property cannot find a mole hill in a positive sense. I will be posting Bibilcal text and word definition with not time to tidy up: time is short.

Those who PRESUME the authority to Infiltrate and Divert a Church of Christ are banded together and handled by agents of the NACC. The conclusion that it was not possible to "fellowship" instrumental Christian Churchedos was the fact that "fellowship" intended to mean what the Christian Standard calls "transistioning" a church.  Dwayne E. Dunning boasts of using an AXE and lopping of one branch at a time.

"A spirit of a grosser sort has stolen in" if it says that God COMMANDS INSTRUMENTAL PRAISE. God really commanded the Levite Instrument players to stand in ranks during the NOT-commanded animal sacrifices and "prophesy" or act as soothsayers with instruments.

A.  Would it be better to leave a congregation in peace and get a job with an instrumental church or purchase your own property.

B. Or would this "spirit" be such a strong voice that you must impose two things that God hates:

  1. Music in the "holy" places where they claimed to worship their god but "their" name was not Jehovah.
    And which has the effect of starving people for lack of the Word:
    Amos Chapter Eight   and   Isaiah Chapter Five by the Spirit OF Christ
  2. And deliberately sowing discord among brethren and offending masses of little ones.

If the Spirit OF Christ calls Tyre-Babylon with the "spirit" of Lucifer the singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden, then you must see that the protypical SOWER of Discord performed as a "musical enchanter(ess)" and not a creepy-crawly snake.  The "serpent" word always speaks of an enchanter or sorcery of some kind

Bowing to the 950 prophets (prophesiers) of Baal and Asherah is the PATTERN for those who use "machines for doing hard work."  The Elijah pattern is for those who defeats 950 players of instruments by SPEAKING the Word of God which is THE power.

YOU WILL HAVE TO BE THE JUDGE OF WHETHER THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST HAS CHANGED HIS MIND TO ACCOMODATE TO THE POSTMODERN, POST-DENOMINATIONAL POST-CHRISTIAN DISPENSATION OF THE ONCE-CHRISTIAN BIBLE COLLEGES.

Preachers have no Role or Dole beyond teaching that which has been taught.  However, the slow infiltration follows a pattern which first neuters the male leadership. Therefore, the Bible and the Classics calls that Robbers of Churches or Robbers of Temples. It is more than just natural that a person can become such an angel of light and take captive the male-masculine leadership.  However, the Spirit of Christ prophesied it in great details.

From Genesis to Revelation music "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter" is the mark of the BEAST or the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Rev 17) who uses lusted after fruits (same as used by Amos) as self-speakers, singers, instrument players and Grinders (prostitutes) John called SORCERERS who HAD deceived the whole world: John says that liars, "dogs" and sorcerers will be cast alive into the Lak of Fire.

Instrumental Music in Worship is Sin: The Bible Tells Disciples (only) so. people have stolen the worship word to make it listening to self-speak preachers, singers and instrument players. That is defined as IMPURE religion.  

The NACC is working together with ACU and Pepperdine covering the same subjects with some of the same speakers.  The pattern of promoting "unity" meaning to impose instruments and "transistion" your church led, almost from the first instrument, church of Christ stearing clear of those want their property and members "for the organ and society" denomination.

Boswell-Hardeman Summary
The Book: The Boswell Hardeman Discussion on Instrumental Music.
THE ONLY MEANING OF THE RAPTURE IS OF THE LOCUSTS AS JOHN'S WORD FOR THE MUSES UNDER APOLLO, ABADDON OR APOLLYON.  The Muses were considered dirty adulteresses or they would not perform in public: John calls the speakers, singers and instrument players, sorcerers and says they will be cast alive into the Lake of Fire. They are robbers of churches and confiscate your property which is the only meaning of RAPTURE where the Angels are sent forth to separate the goats from the lambs and hold them captive.

PATTERN: GET THE NEW PROPERTY, CHANGE THE AGENDA, TRANSISTION TO THE PURPOSE DRIVEN AGENDA. The fooled owners if true Disciples will obey Jesus because in their mind they believe that they have been robbed.
Matthew 5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
Luke 6:29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other;

IN ONE "TRANSISTIONS" A CHURCH, IN THE WORDS OF THE CHRISTIAN STANDARD, THOSE WHO BELIEVED THAT THE ELDERS WERE HONORABLE WILL ACCUSE THE PERSON WHO FOLLOWED THE LEGAL NICETIES OF ROBBING THEM. This writer lost two investments with the 'lord.' 

There is no way that a person who hired himself out as the "Authoratative Teacher" or Master can claim that God doesn't condemn all of the hypocritical performers from Genesis to Revelation.

You cannot 'save more souls' by chasing out the owners and using musical instruments where the meaning and Biblical evidence the Driving Purpose is "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."  You cannot "save more souls" by musically mocking Jesus Christ:

Jesus said that the Kingdom does not come with observation: that means 'religious observations"

We cannot Aid the word and WE will always twist it to our own destruction. To protect us from false teachers the command beginning for the Church in the wilderness was:

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


Paul commanded the pattern to Timothy and to us:

1Timothy 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to [public] reading, to exhortation [comfort], to doctrine.

This is all you can do FOR Jesus Christ:

2Corinthians 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away
        in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
2Corinthians 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
2Corinthians 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
2Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord IS that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
2Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass
        the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory,
        even as by the Spirit of the Lord.


I worry about people who think that they are an Elijah or Elisha when they perform the instrumental role of the prophesiers of Baal and of Asherah: God speaks in the "whispered voice of silence." Christ commanded:
Habakkuk 2:19 Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; 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.
The Prophets are the ANTITHESIS of David:
Psalms 57:8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
Psalms 108:2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
Habakkuk 2:20 But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.
YOU CAN'T "SAVE MORE SOULS" BY MUSICAL PERFORMANCES WHICH ARE PSYCHOLOGICALLY VIOLENT: DEFINED AS SOOTHSAYING OR SORCERY.

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELVES WHO BOAST ABOUT NOT TEACHING THE TRUTH AND SUBJECTING THE YOUTH TO INSTRUMENTAL BANDS TO TEACH THEM TO LEAVE OUR MOVEMENT (Rick Atchley)

JESUS PASSES FINAL JUDGMENT TRANSLATED INTO THE GREEK

The Instrumental Prophesiers were always the enemies and murderers of the prophets who spoke by the Spirit OF Christ:

Matthew 11:16 But whereunto shall I liken this generation?
         It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,
Matthew 11:17 And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced;
        we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.
Matthew 11:18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.

The Logos people were rational or spiritual and devoted to the Word.  Jesus was God's example of the LOGOS and the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17) as the model of SOPHIA.

JESUS PASSES FINAL JUDGMENT TRANSLATED INTO THE LATIN

Matthew 11.12 a diebus autem Iohannis Baptistae usque nunc regnum caelorum vim patitur et violenti rapiunt illud

Pătĭor , passus, 3, v. dep. (2. To suffer, have, meet with, be visited or afflicted with (mostly postAug.):

Sal. Cat. 13 For why should I mention those displays of extravagance, which can be believed by none but those who have seen them; as that mountains have been leveled, and seas covered with edifices, by many private citizens; men whom I consider to have made a sport of their wealth, since they were impatient to squander disreputably what they might have enjoyed with honor.

But the love of irregular gratification, open debauchery, and all kinds of luxury, had spread abroad with no less force. Men forgot their sex; women threw off all the restraints of modesty. To gratify appetite, they sought for every kind of production by land and by sea; they slept before there was any inclination for sleep; they no longer waited to feel hunger, thirst, cold, or fatigue, but anticipated them all by luxurious indulgence. Such propensities drove the youth, when their patrimonies were exhausted, to criminal practices; for their minds, impregnated with evil habits, could not easily abstain from gratifying their passions, and were thus the more inordinately devoted in every way to rapacity and extravagance.

Gender Inclusive and Egalitarian Churches of Christ  Musical Worship Teams (a blasphemy) with or without instruments involving women in fact SING to a tune: if you remove the melody then she TEACHES OVER men in that she is self-authored preaching out of her own head. 

Johannes Quasten. In Music and Worship in Pagan and Christian Antiquity, beginning on page 41 He uses many of the church Fathers and Classical resources we also rely upon:

"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.

"Now, many a man from the false religions, which are not ashamed of criticising what is noble, will ask: how can there be a feast without carousing and overeating, without the pleasant company of hosts and guests, without quantities of unmixed wine, without richly set tables and highly stacked provisions of everything that pertains to a banquet, without pageantry and jokes,

bantering and merry-making to the accompaniment of flutes and citharas, the sound of drums and cymbals and other effeminate and frivolous music of every king,

enkindling unbridled lusts with the help of the sense of hearing. For in and through the same [pleasures] those persons openly seek their joy, for what true joy is their they do not know.

"Women and girls from the different ranks of society were proud to enter the service of the gods as singers and musicians. The understanding of this service was universal: these singers constituted the 'harem of the gods'." (End of Quasten)

Furthermore, men with no Role and no Dole who cannot bring themselves to confront the MASCULINE, Rational, Spiritual Word and teach it as it has been taught now see Godliness as a means of financial gain: OCCUPATION only.  However, it is a fact that getting paid for performing with any of your body parts when Jesus paid it all and taught it all is called PROSTITUTION.

X.Mem.1.6.13  Xen. Mem. 1.6.1

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.

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:

We don't invent "Spiritual songs."

The Apostles had the Mind of Christ guiding them:


1 Cor 2.[14] Now the natural man doesn't receive the things of God's Spirit, for they are foolishness to him, and he can't know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

It is impossible to be a Disciple of Christ commanded to teach and observe what HE commanded in the Prophets and Apostles and even hallucinate any music content to the School (only) of the Word (only) when He keeps the role as Teacher-Mediator only when the Elders as pastor-teachers teach that which has been taught.

Qahal (h6951) kaw-hawl'; from 6950; assemblage (usually concr.): - assembly, company, congregation, multitude.

"A community, qahal in Hebrew, is a Jewish community of any size. The qahal was a well established concept and was called an ekklesia in the Nazarean Codicil. In English we translate the Greek ekklesia as church. So, whenever we see the word church in our Nazarean Codicil's, we should have in mind the concept of a qahal, a community or congregation.

The Septuagint uses the word Ecclesia seventy times when it translates the Hebrew word: kve (qahal could also be spelled Cahal), from which we get our English word call. It means to call together, to assemble, or gather together.

The synagogue serves the same purpose for a community that the Temple served for the nation. (Greg Killian)

From this midrash we learn that the study and application of the scriptures and the oral law, are the work that a group of people put in to establish a qahal. However, without a structure to impart this wisdom, the qahal will not prosper. The structure that establishes and prospers a qahal is the synagogue.

It would be impossible to conspire to deliberately discord a peaceable assembly without being beyond the prayer of Jesus who does not pray for the WORLD.

It is impossible to impose any of they hypocritic roles--self-speaking, singing, playing or acting--without being defined as a SOPHIST.  Jesus said that God HIDES from the wise or sophists.

or one who had read much of the Old Testament and the Prophets where the future REST from Jim Hackney including what is defined absolutely as sorcery or witchcraft used against the simple, and any HINT that there is any musical content to the School of the Word.

6.26.13  Jim Hackney 
Jim Hackney blasphemes: he says that God DISCORDS Heritage church of Christ to transistion it into instrumental music against the owners will who have NOTHING to do but get healed. He perverts Romans 8 to say that if HE wants to impose instrumental music then HE has no choice: God TRANSISTIONS and everyone must SUBMIT which seems like they would be fighting God if they OBJECTED to what God always associates with the Devi.

Jim Hackney nees to know that The BEAST in Revelation is a New Style of Music or Drama. The MARK is more addictive than crack cocaine. The prophecy was that the ELECT or Church will almost be taken captive so imposing rhetoric, singing, instruments, drama and women is the MARK that the lamps or candlestick has been removed.  

Jim Hackney's explanation of how the Holy Spirit led them to violate their pledge understood not to add instruments.

Jim Hackney asks:  Where do we get the authority to use instruments in worship?

Click for the answer below: The Spirit OF Christ and all historical evidence says that the DEVIL MADE THEM DO IT. This is the Lucifer Principle: She is the pagan brother/sister of the LOGOS.  She/he/it is the Musical Enchanter or "singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden" and the Babylon mother of harlots (Revelation 17) who uses "lusted after fruits" (same as in Amos 8)  In Revelation 18 the speakers, singers and instrument players are called SORCERERS which word speaks of the original Babylon Sorceress . John says that they will (or are) cast alive into the Lake of Fire. There is no sin as vile as MUSICAL MOCKING when people claim to take your food money to speak for Christ.

None of the Bible speaks to the WISE or Sophists meaning speakers, singers and instrument players. It is not given to them to know nor ever confess what we hope can be understood by those who love the truth.

For those needing to flee the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17) A BEAST is:

Jim Hackney: 

Scriptural

What does the Bible say about the use of instruments in worship to God? / Have you ever wondered about the scriptural justification for congregational singing?

The Spirit OF Christ defined the ekklesia or synagogue or Church in the wilderness: Jesus affirmed the synagogue and added only the Lord's Supper.  Those who understand that Jesus died to become the only mediator and teacher all disciples sit down and shut up in The School of Christ. That is the only way to worship IN THE SPIRIT devoted to THE TRUTH.  Jesus preculded what Jim Hackney etal thinks of as A Worship Service which is defined as the opposite of PURE religion.  He said that the kingdom of God does not come in religious observations. There is nothing in the commanded resurce--that which is written for our learning--that is metrical and therefore the singing AND melody is in the SPIRIT or PLACE where God seeks out giving attendance to HIS Word.

Jim Hackney:  Have you ever wondered about the scriptural justification for congregational singing? You might be surprised to find that the New Testament doesn’t speak to this subject in the way the Churches of Christ have traditionally understood it in terms of worship assemblies. In fact, the only mention of singing in an assembly setting is found in 1 Corinthians 14:26. That passage says that each one of us has a song. It implies solos. None of the other passages in the New Testament that even marginally addresses singing do so in an assembly setting. The conclusion one reaches is that congregational singing itself it notauthorized” by the New Testament.

No: Paul condemned the Corinthian assembly as "doing more harm than good." The presumptious people then and now thought that their songs and sermons are more valuable than obeying the Direct Commands and Approved Precedence: PREACH the Word (only) by READING the Word for comfort and doctrine.

It is true that there is no command, example or remote inference of any of God's peoplel  engaging in congregatinal singing of NOT commanded text with or without instruments.  In none of the places where Paul or Timothy assembled on the first day of the week is there any hint of group singing.  We know from recorded history when singing in that ancient form was IMPOSED and that it sowed discord which has never ceased.  The Biblical concept is defines as to edify (educate), comfort or to admonish one another.  Most historical division has been caused by people who want to stop the School of Christ and begin a liturgical service presuming to work magic with God: the congregation was not even required for the magic to work.

That being the case, why would Jim Hackney use this SOWING OF DISCORD to justify FURTHER sowing of discord and stealing the church houses of widows and honest workers.

The same people who IMPOSED singing as entertainment rather than TEACHING now want to IMPOSE using instruments.  Jim knows that congregational singing does not INTENTIONALLY SOW DISCORD while he CONFESSES that Instruments will so discord.  Paul also said that YOUR SERVICES DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD and Paul SILENCED women doing any performance roles.

When Paul said that EACH of you has something to say out of your OWN SPIRIT even if people cannot understand it, he is using IRONY which should make Jim Hackney blush with shame.

The NOT musical passages speak of CONFESSING Christ by engaging in reciting the text. Have all of the scholars missed Romans 15 where Paul ELXCLUDES all of the theatrics SO THAT the pattern can be:

Romans 15:1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
Romans 15:2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
Romans 15:3 For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
Romans 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.
Romans 15:5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
Romans 15:6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

EXTERNAL: Ephesians 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

The Will of the Lord is the Word of the Lord is SPIRIT and LIFE (John 6:63).  The Will of the Lord is to SPEAK like adults that which is written for our learning.  You CANNOT Speak and Sing at the same time: they are antithetical. The itzy-bitzy, inanity of the praise singer is NOT the Will of the Lord: it intends to 'make the lambs dumb before the slaughter.
