Jim Hackney Romans 8

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 is troubled about imposing instrumental music but 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 Devil. 

Revised 7.10.13   God does not 'upset the comfort zones' of people as a way to TRANSISTION them into what He absolutely repudiated.  Church is A School of Christ: in prophecy it would be an UMBRELLA where saved spirits are permitted to REST in a SAFE HOUSE whole the storms and WINDS OF CHANGE are being blown by those NOT in any sense holy.

He Quotes.
Time is filled with swift transition
Not of earth or moon can stand
build your hopes on things eternal
Hold to God's unchanging hand

Trust in Him who will not leave you
Whatsoever years may bring
When my earthly friends forsaken

Still more closely to Him cling

But, Jimmy wants you to hold to HIS HAND apparently equating his personal agenda as the WILL OF GOD.

Heritage Church of Christ Instrumental.
Jim Hackney reads off the NACC list of passages mention instruments
Jim Hackney claims that God can work ONLY during painful transitions: He means that imposing instruments in ANY sense into A Church of Christ is God's chance to jump in and make EVERYTHING turn out for good.

Jim Hackney: When transistion happens GOD is doing a work which God COULDN'T DO at any other time.
That's when God gets my FULL attention.  Have faith in what we do in our CHURCH.  Surround yourself with change and they becomes the source.  From that moment had my FULL ATTENTION God will USE. 

God's transistion is to FORM our SPIRIT by paying attention to His Word.  God does NOT transistion peaceable people into becoming A Theater for Holy Entertainment.  God ABANDONED Israel to Babylonianism BECAUSE of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai. God ALWAYS associates musical instruments as the MARK that people are SELLING their own songs and sermons and WILL NOT obey His Word which "supplies all that applies to life and Godliness."

1Timothy 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

Violating all of the Bible and historic scholarship and lying about all of the "instrument" passages PERMITS God to jump in and turn massive sowing of discord into something God. However, God does not IMPOSE sowing of discord: that is the boasted views of Hitler or Hegel the Changelings have adopted to DERANGE you so that they can REBUILD them.  The MESSAGE is however that the AFFLICTIONS are from the ENEMIES of God and IF you keep God's commandments then God will make certain that you survive the afflictions.

Jim Hackney: 
Not just about YOU or ME BUT an opportunity to do something THROUGH you.
Whatever God is doing in your life, as a CHURCH HE has something more in MIND for us. Where do you get that?  Nowhere clearer than Romans 8:28   "God causes EVERYTHING to work for good; Not smart enough to figure how he does it.

If Jim Hackney violates all of the direct commands from Genesis to Revelation because being a preacher does not require being a disciple, there will be no excuse.  If Jim Hackney decides to SOW DISCORD by imposing that which he knows will so discord, it would despise or blasphem the Holy Spirit OF Christ by claiming that He (Jesus Christ) is just MANIPULATING him.

Lying Wonders meaning religious services involving the performing arts is PROOF that God has sent strong delusions.

Jim Hackney CLAIMS several times that HE has nothing to do with imposing instruments: God made him do it but all recorded evidence says that the devil made him do it.  Jim claims that the God-imposed violation of ALL of His recorded message HURTS him also. But, in all of this sowing Discord God causes everything to work for God.  Do you believe that is a lie?  Here is what Paul said:
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good
       1. to them that love God,
       2. to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Jim Hackney's Infiltrating and Diverting the church house of widows and honest workers proves that God DOES not work for good imposing Instrumental Music known to create the laded burden or "spiriitual anxiety through religious rituals" or creating mental excitement Paul outlawed.
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him,
        If a man love me, he will keep my words:
        [then]  and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

1John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God,
        when we love God, and keep his commandments.
1John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments:
        and his commandments are not grievous.
        [God does NOT impose DISCOMFORT]

1John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the WORLD:
        and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Jim wants to IMPOSE the World and that is why you are HURTING and are AFFLICTED

    I shall loudly sing a sweet song, an adornment for your garland of golden olive,
    [15] while I honor the race of the Western Locrians.
There, Muses, join in the victory-song [NIKE]; I shall pledge my word to you that we will find there a race that does not repel the stranger, or is inexperienced in fine deeds, but one that is wise and warlike too.

You cannot inflict discord on people and still love them.  The Evangelist is to READ the Word for COMFORT and DOCTRINE.

1Corinthians 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks,
         Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
Jim Hackney says that giving heed or WORSHIPING musical performers is the POWER OF GOD to save people.
1Corinthians 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1Corinthians 1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren,
        how that not many WISE [
sophos ] men after the flesh,
        not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

        he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?

The Spirit OF Christ in the Prophets certifies that Jim Hackney blasphemes
Isaiah 59:15 Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey:
        and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.
Isaiah 59:16 And he saw that there was no man,
        and wondered that there was no intercessor:
        therefore his ARM brought salvation unto him;
        and his righteousness, it sustained him.

H2220 Zeroa From H2232 ; the arm (as stretched out), or (of animals) the foreleg; figuratively force:—arm, + help, mighty, power, shoulder, strength.

1Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Isaiah 59:17 For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head;
        and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing,
        and was clad with zeal as a cloke.
Isaiah 59:18 According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay,
        fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies;
        to the islands he will repay recompence.
B.In partic., an exciting of indignation by rhetorical art:indignatio est oratio, per quam conficitur, ut in aliquem hominem magnum odium, aut in rem gravis offensio concitetur,Cic. Inv. 1, 53, 100; Quint. 4, 3, 15.—

Liv. 4 50. This expression of Postumius being conveyed to the soldiers, excited in the camp much greater indignation. “Did the embezzler of the spoils and the defrauder threaten woe also to the soldiers?” [2] Accordingly, when the murmur of indignation now became avowed, and the quaestor, Publius Sestius, thought that the mutiny might be quashed by the same violence by which it had been excited; on his sending a lictor to one of the soldiers who was clamorous, when a tumult and scuffle arose from the circumstance, being struck with a stone he retired from the crowd; [3] the person who had given the blow, further observing with a sneer, “That the quaestor got what the general had threatened to the soldiers.

Isaiah 59:19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun.
         When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
Isaiah 59:20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion,
        and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD
Isaiah 59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD;
        God's Spirit:   My spirit that is upon thee,
        Is Parallel to: and my words which I have put in thy mouth,
        shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed,
        nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD,
        from henceforth and for ever.

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying,
        All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
them in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
        and of the Holy Ghost:
Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
        and, lo, I am with you alway,
        even unto the end of the world. Amen.
God's Arm or Hand or Spirit is the WORD of God revealed and inspired in the Prophets and Apostles (only) by Christ.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus,
        who walk not after the flesh,
        but after the Spirit.

Instrumental music appeals ONLY to the Flesh: all of history knows that Satan dupes people into adding something he knows will destory the spirit (left, rational) by preventing it from growing through the Word of God in Christ; Music from mystery  means "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter." It certainly works doesn't it.

Ezekiel 13:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Ezekiel 13:2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy,
        and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts,
        Hear ye the word of the LORD;
Ezekiel 13:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets,
        that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
Ezekiel 13:4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.
Ezekiel 13:5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps,
         neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel
        to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD.
Ezekiel 13:6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith:
         and the LORD hath not sent them:
        and they have made others to hope
        that they would confirm the word

It is a historical fact that religious music performers have always been seen as perverted and parasitic
See Amos 8 for the Mark (bite) of the BEAST meaning "a new style of music or drama."
Amos 8:1 Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit.
Amos 8:2 And he said, Amos, what seest thou?
        And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me,
        The end is come upon my people of Israel;
        I will not again pass by them any more.

The Babylon Mother of Harlots in Revelation uses the Lusted after FRUITS as speakers, singers and instrument players.  John alls them SORCERERS and says that they will be cast alive into the lake of fire.  Religious music has ALWAYS been the requirement of priesthoods and too many preahcerhoods. Rhetoric or self speak is the MARK.  This is the MARK of the Vineyard or New Wineskins worship.
Aristophanes Archarnians
Peace, profane men! Let the basket-bearer come forward, and thou Xanthias, hold the phallus well upright.
  1. The maiden who carried the basket filled with fruits at the Dionysia in honour of Bacchus.

  2. The emblem of the fecundity of nature; it consisted of a representation, generally grotesquely exaggerated, of the male genital organs; the phallophori crowned with violets and ivy and their faces shaded with green foliage, sang improvised airs, call `Phallics,' full of obscenity and suggestive `double entendres.'
        Xanthias, walk behind the basket-bearer and hold the phallus well erect; I will follow, singing the Phallic hymn; thou, wife, look on from the top of the terrace.Forward!

Oh, Phales, [god of generation, worshipped in the form of a phallus]  companion of the orgies of Bacchus, night reveller, god of adultery, friend of young men, these past six years I have not been able to invoke thee.
Amos 8:3 And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord GOD:
        there shall be many dead bodies in every place;
        they shall cast them forth with silence.

Isaiah 58 Nor to seek our own PLEASURE or pay for one to SPEAK THEIR OWN WORDS.

Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD,
        that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread,
        nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
Amos 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea,
        and from the north even to the east,
        they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
John 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am IN my Father, and ye IN me, and I in you.
John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them,
        he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father,
        and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
John 14:22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord,
        how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him,
        If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him,
         and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
John 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings:
        and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.


2 Peter 2:10 But chiefly them that
        walk after the FLESH in the lust of uncleanness,
        and despise government. Presumptuous are they,
        selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
        [i.e. Lie TO God and ABOUT God]

2 Peter 2:11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might,
        bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.

And it fell out that the soul of Odysseus drew the last lot of all and came to make its choice, and, from memory of its former toils having flung away ambition, went about for a long time in quest of the life of an ordinary citizen who minded his own business, and with difficulty found it lying in some corner disregarded by the others,

The Jews had a Covenant with Death and Hell.  It is FLESH or LAW
Jesus said MY WORDS are Spirit and they are Life.

Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh,
        God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin,
         condemned sin in the flesh:

Romans 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us,
        who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh;
        but they that are after the Spirit [
do mind] the things of the Spirit.

Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death;
        but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

God BREATHED SPIRIT into Jesus and Jesus spoke that Spirit without measure or METER: Speak is the opposite of rhetoric, singing or music.. You cannot be spiritually minded if you believe that your own imagination is God FORCING you to deliberately sow discord.

Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:
            for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but IN the Spirit,
        if so be that the Spirit OF God dwell
IN you.
        Now if any man have not the Spirit OF Christ, he is none of his.

Of is a preposition: the Spirit OF Christ is the mind or mental disposition of Christ. That dwells in people who let the WORD OF CHRIST dwell in them as the ONLY resource for SPEAKING one to another in "that which is written for our learning." Paul condemned the singers in Corinth because they sang out of THEIR OWN Spirit and Paul said 'You are just SPEAKING INTO THE AIR.'

Romans 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin;
        but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

It would be impossible for a RIGHTEOUS person to claim that a "spirit person" told them to violate all of the evidence that proves that wind, string and percussion instruments were bestowed by Satan to silence the Words of God in Christ. It needs no proving when people PERFORM their own words in a style which violates the command to SPEAK TO YOURSELVES
Romans 12 Worship rationally or giving attention to the LOGOS.

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

First, the body of flesh must be sacrificed or burned up:

Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Gal 5:24 And they that are Christ’s have
crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts

Then, it is possible to engage in RATIONAL or SPIRITUAL worship:

And that God gave unto man's foolishness the gift of divination a sufficient token is this: no man achieves true and inspired divination when in his rational mind, but only when the power of his intelligence is fettered in sleep or when it is distraught by disease or by reason of some divine inspiration.

But it belongs to a man when in his right mind to recollect and ponder both the things spoken in dream or waking vision by the divining and inspired nature, and all the visionary forms that were seen, and by means of reasoning to discern about them all

Plat. Sym. 215c Why, yes, and a far more marvellous one than the satyr. His lips indeed had power to entrance mankind by means of instruments; a thing still possible today for anyone who can pipe his tunes: for the music of Olympus' flute belonged, I may tell you, to Marsyas his teacher.
So that if anyone, whether a fine flute-player or paltry flute-girl, can but flute his tunes,
        they have no equal for exciting a ravishment,

Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit OF him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you,
        he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by HIS Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Romans 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the  flesh

Romans 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die:
         but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God,
        they are the sons of God.

God the Father Breathed (spirit) on Jesus: he then SPOKE the WORDS of God without measure or METER.  The MARK of being a Son was that Jesus spoke ONLY what the Father told Him to say.

Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit OF bondage again to fear;
        but ye have received the Spirit OF adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Hebrews 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
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.

Jesus commanded that we teach and observe what HE commanded to be Taught.
This teaching is SPIRIT or the MIND of God in Christ.
If you REJECT the Word then the Spirit or mind of Christ DOES NOT DWELL IN YOU.

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying,
        All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
        and, lo, I am with you alway,
        even unto the end of the world. Amen.
  1. The Spirit OF Christ repudiated all SELF-SPEAK or music AS worship in the Prophets.  Peter said that Jesus of Nazareth made these prophecies more certain.  He said that the PROPHETS and APOSTLES who left us a memory CANNOT be private interpreted or FURTHER EXPOUNDED: He lef this as a way to MARK false tleachers.
  2. Since the SPIRIT of Christ (Ephesians 5) or the WORD of Christ (Colossians 3) or "that which is written for our learning" (Romans 15) is the ONLY resource for building up or EDUCATING A Church of Christ, IS SPIRIT or the Mind of God through Jesus.
  3. If YOUR spirit contradicts the Spirit OF Christ then by definition you CANNOT be a son of God.

Jim Hackney want to impose musical performance which is radically repudiated and the MARK of the false and effeminate: all religious musicians were called PARASITES.

PAUL is affirming what Jesus said: if the Apostles speak the Word just as Jesus spoke what the Father BREATHED on Him then they WOULD be despised and rejected by men.


Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Romans 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

Romans 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Romans 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

Romans 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit,
        even we ourselves groan within ourselves,
        waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

Romans 8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

Romans 8:25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:
        for we know not what we should pray for as we ought:
         but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Romans 8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit,
         because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Romans 8:28 And we know that
        all things work together for good
        to them that love God
        to them who are the called

Jim Hackney wants you to believe that if now with that GRAND BUILDING and with the Talent of Musical Idolatry they will be so loved and loveable that the WORLD for which Jesus will not pray will LOVE you and not persecute you IF you take the MARK of the BEAST: the BEAST is "A new style of music or drama."

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate
        to be conformed to the image of his Son,
        that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Romans 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called:
        and whom he called, them he also justified:
        and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

God works for the good of those that love the Lord.
If you love the Lord you will keep HIS commandments.
Satan will send people to make you believe that you are STRANGE
And to prevent persecution YOU should take the Mark so YOU can be the PRIDE of the community.
However, if you are in the JUBILATING mode rather than in the SUFFERING mode then you are NOT a Disciple.

Romans 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all,
        how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Romans 8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.

Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again,
        who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Who is it that condemneth? Jim Hackney condemns as ignorant those who REFUSED to enjoy sin for a season.  In his mind, these things bring on suffering and tribulation: All you have to do is smell this incense or engage in the idolatry of talent and YOU will be seen in favor and YOU can escape tribulation, distress, persecution, famin of the word, spiritual naked and implied violence if you continue to be what you believe.

Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Romans 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Girardian Reflections: 5.4.1 The ordinary matrix by which we humans live is the perspective of the perpetrators of collective violence against victims. Human enslavement to the perpetrator's perspective of sacred violence is at the foundation of all human culture. With the perpetrator's perspective penetrating everywhere to things human, it is the victim's perspective which is truly unique.

5.4.2 Behind the anthropological predilections against the victim's perspective, there is a very practical, quasi-historical reason: namely, the victim is shunned and often killed. In the ancient world, the role of music during ritual sacrifice was often to drown out any cries from the victim. (45) It is crucial that the victim not be heard. The practical mechanics of making victims means that it is unusual for the victim's perspective to survive. In the world of ancient ritual it was probably impossible.

45. The Greek verb myo means to close the mouth or shut the eyes. There is debate about whether myo plays a crucial role in the etymology of other significant words such as myth, mystery, and even music. These etymologies make sense within the Girardian hypotheses. Myth means to close ourselves to the victim and tell the tale according to the perpetrator's perspective; mystery cults are based on the silence of the victims; music derives from drowning out the voice of the victim.

3466. musth/rion musterion, moos-tay´-ree-on; from a derivative of mu/w muo (to shut the mouth); a secret or “mystery” (through the idea of silence imposed by initiation into religious rites): — mystery.
