King Solomon's Temple

2 Chronicles 5: was the Temple Dedication a pattern for the New Testament Church? No, God promised David a tent but Solomon built a house at a pagan site but God does not dwell in houses built by human hands.  Nor, is God worshipped by the Works of human hands.

Because the Levitical musicians performing for the slaughter of innocent animals appears in the Bible it is easy for those who have no concern for truth to be sent strong delusions so that they and all of their captives can be damned and rejoicing all the way. God is like that. One of the favorite's is The dedication of Solomon's temple.

There are TWO THREADS throughout the Old Testament just as there is in any nation: the king's scribes kept journals of the civil affairs.  However, the prophets by the Spirit of Christ repudiated the whole monarchy which was added as a curse. While the record of the civil affairs are in the Bible they do not have the same weight as the Prophets who repudiated the Civil-Religious institute as robbers and parasites.
Cyril of Alexandria, Commentary on John,

That the Pharisees puffed up unto strange boasting,
        were wont to pretend that the Divine Word was with them and in them,
        and therefore foolishly affirmed that they had advanced to marvellous wisdom, 
        the Spirit Itself will testify, 
        since Christ says by the Prophet Jeremiah unto them, 
                How do ye say, WE are wise, and the word of the Lord is with us?
                For nought to the scribes became their lying pen;
                the wise
men were ashamed, were dismayed and taken;
                what wisdom
is in them? because they rejected the word of the Lord.

For how are they not taken rejecting the Living and Hypostatic Word of God, receiving not the faith to Him-ward, 
        but dishonouring the Impress of God the Father, and refusing to behold His most true Form (so to say) through His God-befitting Authority and Power?
Therefore, before using the national warrior musicians as authority for Christian worship we might wonder why there is not a shred, not a chip of a stone or any evidence that Solomon's temple existed as defined.  Even in the record the "musical" events can be separated by close to 300 years: hardly a PATTERNISM for making sure we get the tithes and offerings each week.

No one can tell you exactly how the temple looked but because it was built by an architect from Tyre it is reasonable to believe that it looked like and contained the same "idols" which would be outlawed if God had not abandoned the nation to worship the starry host.  However, many ancient temples remain.

Josephus records (Antiquities 8.5.3), following Menander the historian, concerning King Hiram IHiram I was king of Tyre from 969 BC to 936 BC. During his reign, Tyre grew out from a satellite to the more important city of Sidon to the most important of the Phoenician cities and the holder of a large trading empire. Hiram allied himself with king So of Tyre (c. 965– 935 BCE):
He also went and cut down materials of timber out of the mountain called Lebanon Mount Lebanon is the mountain range that extends across the whole country of Lebanon about 160 km (100 mi) parallel to the Mediterranean coast and rising to 3,090 m (10,131 ft). Lebanon is historically defined from the mountains, which have provided for p, for the roof of temples; and when he had pulled down the ancient temples, he both built the temple of Heracles and that of Astarteand he was the first to celebrate the awakening (egersis) of Heracles in the month Peritius.
And there are many remains of this temple. The point is that we should use great care when dredging the chronicles of the unlawful King's court to find a patternism for the ekklesia as a school of the Biblb--only!

However, the lust to "make a place in the mainstream for those who both amuse and repulse us" many are repeating a PATTERNISM first enacted in a Spiritual realm, then in the Garden of Eden and in all of the FALLS from God's grace. If they could catch on then it would not be a very great delusion God has sent to this and all ages.

BECAUSE GOD TURNED THE ISRAELITES OVER TO WORSHIP THE STARRY HOST AND STEPHEN CONNECTS THIS TO AMOS, THIS MATERIAL WILL CONNECT YOU TO TEXT WHICH DEFINE THE "WORSHIP OF THE STARRY" HOST. THIS IS WELL DOCUMENTED IN THE GREEK AND EGYPTIAN LITERATURE. THEREFORE, IT WILL PROVE THAT THE TEMPLE TO THE STARRY HOST IS NOT A PATTERNISM FOR CHRISTIAN WORSHIP.  Those who are now promoting a restoration of the cursed Levitical singers are the victims of a Paradigm Lost.

They miss the point that the Levite's father guided by the Spirit of Christ warned the literate in the first book of the Bible and then again in the last book of the Bible. God is like that: hiding the mysteries in plain view to make fools of the foolish. While the great commission was to be a blessing to all nations the children of Israel used their right to serve to enslave people to the prevailing Serpent and Astrial deity worship. In the Testament of Levi:

MADE CLEAR IN PROPHECY BY THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST

16. And now I have learnt in the book of Enoch that for seventy weeks will ye go astray,

and will profane the priesthood,
and
pollute the sacrifices,
and
corrupt the law,
and
set at nought the words of the prophets.

In perverseness ye will persecute righteous men, and hate the godly; the words of the faithful will ye abhor, and the man who reneweth the law in the power of the Most High will ye call a deceiver; and at last, as ye suppose, ye will slay Him, not understanding His resurrection, wickedly taking upon your own heads the innocent blood. Because of Him shall your holy places be desolate, polluted even to the ground, and ye shall have no place that is clean; but ye shall be among the Gentiles a curse and a dispersion, until He shall again look upon you, and in pity shall take you to Himself through faith and water.

17. And because ye have heard concerning the seventy weeks, hear also concerning the priesthood;

for in each jubilee there shall be a priesthood.

In the first jubilee,

the first who is anointed into the priesthood shall be great, and shall speak to God as to a Father;
and his priesthood shall be filled with the fear of the Lord, and in the day of his gladness shall he arise for the salvation of the world.

In the second jubilee, he that is anointed shall be conceived in the sorrow of beloved ones; and his priesthood shall be honoured, and shall be glorified among all. And the third priest shall be held fast in sorrow; and the fourth shall be in grief, because unrighteousness shall be laid upon him exceedingly, and all Israel shall hate each one his neighbour. The fifth shall be held fast in darkness, likewise also the sixth and the seventh.

And in the seventh there shall be such pollution as I am not able to express, before the Lord and men, for they shall know it who do these things.

Therefore shall they be in captivity and for a prey, and their land and their substance shall be destroyed. And in the fifth week they shall return into their desolate country, and shall renew the house of the Lord.

And in the seventh week shall come the priests, worshippers of idols, contentious, lovers of money, proud, lawless, lascivious, abusers of children and beasts.

18. And after their punishment shall have come from the Lord, then will the Lord raise up to the priesthood a new Priest, to whom all the words of the Lord shall be revealed; and

He shall execute a judgment of truth upon the earth, in the fulness of days.
And His
star shall arise in heaven, as a king shedding forth the light of knowledge in the sunshine of day, and He shall be magnified in the world until His ascension.

He shall shine forth as the sun in the earth, and shall drive away all darkness from the world under heaven, and there shall be peace in all the earth.

The heavens shall rejoice in His days, and the earth shall be glad, and the clouds shall be joyful, and the knowledge of the Lord shall be poured forth upon the earth, as the water of seas; and the angels of the glory of the presence of the Lord shall be glad in Him.

The heavens shall be opened, and from the temple of glory shall the sanctification come upon Him with the Father's voice, as from Abraham the father of Isaac.

And the glory of the Most High shall be uttered over Him,
and the
spirit of understanding and of sanctification
shall rest upon Him in the water.

He shall give the majesty of the Lord to His sons in truth for evermore; and there shall none succeed Him for all generations, even for ever.

And in His priesthood shall all sin come to an end, and the lawless shall rest from evil, and the just shall rest in Him.

And He shall open the gates of paradise, and shall remove the threatening sword against Adam; and He shall give to His saints to eat from the tree of life, and the spirit of holiness shall be on them.

And Beliar shall be bound by Him, and He shall give power to His children to tread upon the evil spirits. And the Lord shall rejoice in His children, and the Lord shall be well pleased in His beloved for ever. Then shall Abraham and Isaac and Jacob be joyful, and I will be glad, and all the saints shall put on gladness.

MADE CLEAR BY THE PROPHETS WHO SPOKE BY THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST

So the children went in and possessed the land, and thou subduedst before them the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, and gavest them into their hands, with their kings, and the people of the land, that they might do with them as they would. Neh 9:24

And they took strong cities, and a fat land, and possessed houses full of all goods, wells digged, vineyards, and oliveyards, and fruit trees in abundance:
so they did eat, and were filled, and became fat,
and delighted
[became soft, lived voluptuously]
themselves in thy great goodness.
Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against thee,
          and cast thy law behind their backs,
          and slew thy prophets which testified against them to turn them to thee,
          and they wrought great provocations. Neh 9:26

Neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept thy law, nor hearkened unto thy commandments and thy testimonies, wherewith thou didst testify against them. Neh 9:34

For they have not served thee in their kingdom, and in thy great goodness that thou gavest them, and in the large and fat land which thou gavest before them, neither turned they from their wicked works. Neh 9:35

Behold, we are servants this day, [and so are you]
       
and for the land that thou gavest unto our fathers to eat the fruit thereof and the good thereof,
        behold, we are servants in it: Neh 9:36

And it yieldeth 
        much increase unto the kings whom thou hast set over us 

        because of our sins
      
  also they have dominion over our bodies, and over our cattle,
        at their pleasure
        and we are in great distress. Neh 9:37

Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, 
        they have trodden my portion under foot,
        they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness
Jer. 12:10  

       They have sown wheat, but shall reap thorns
        they have put themselves to pain, but shall not profit: 
        and they shall be ashamed of your revenues 
        because of the fierce anger of the Lord. Je.12:13

THE TWO THREADS: ONE OF BRASS AND ONE OF GOLD
PROPHETS VERSUS THE PRIESTS

A very small group of false teachers and professors have organized a new movement intending to restore the exorcism "music" of the sacrifricial system along with using the Wilderness Wondering as a patternism for church organization and worship.  By claiming to be of the Stone-Campbell Movement they claim as their property those called ANTI-instrumental churches.   By being evil or ignorant they claim the Levites who were Musical Warriors as their PATTERNISM for imposing musical instruments knowing that sowing of discord will put a large percentage of the owners "out of the synagogue.

Shortly after civil and religious liberty after the Revolution the eternal TWO THREADS of religion was manifested in so-called religious awakenings. This claimed that the early exercises called Witchcraft were proof that God approved of their movement.  They attempt to lump these "Stonites" with the Church of Christ led in this country primarily by Thomas and Alexander Campbell.

The Church of Christ was RIGHT HAND movement attempted to use the Bible as its only authority for faith and practice. As such, they were quite aware of the TWO THREADS running through the Old Testament.  The LEFT HAND of Satan had been prophesied. The Neo-Restoration movement in no uncertain words insists on RESTORING that which God always cursed and the Spirit of Christ defined as robbers an parasites in the Prophets as"that which was to be" especially GIVEN HEED TO (the only worship word).  The agreed-upon magical mantra is that of the Warrior Levites "God commanded instrumental praise and you must not be disobedient." Therefore, they have confessed to the 2/3 blind and deaf that they have VIOLATED the direct command NOT TO participate in these Qahal or "synagogues of Satan."

After the fall from grace at Mount Sinai, God turned them over to worship the starry host which was that practiced by the LEVITES as a synomym for the musical-perverted worship of Dionysus.

Without returning to the Garden of Eden where Lucifer is called "the singing and harp playing prostitute" a good place to begin is God's prophecy of the 12 tribes of Israel

THE LEVITES ARE THE PATTERNISM FOR THOSE IMPOSING MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS.

Jacob says I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord!" Of Simeon and Levi the patriarch remarks that they
Gen. 49:5 Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments [Sword or Musical]
         of cruelty are in their habitations.
Gen. 49:6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret;
        unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united:
        for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

Habitations means "stabbing" from "a cooking range" or boiler, a pot or furnace. God knew that they had a lust for blood and flesh and that was the only rationale for the national or pagan sacrificial systems.

The Levites would be warriors and the latin is bellor To understand such words, the Greek and Latin literature must be read.

In Vergil Aeneit 11 the word Bello is used of the triumph over using music.

With such, return'd triumphant from the war,
Her maids with cries attend the lofty car;
They clash with manly force their moony shields;
With female shouts resound the Phrygian fields.

Pulso To strike or punish, military machines, of musical instruments.

Tŭmultus , 1. In milit. lang., a sudden or impending war, civil war, insurrection, tumult, sedition, rebellion 2. tremendo Juppiter ipse ruens tumultu, i. e. the roar of thunder, storm, etc.:

The sounds are the Halal praise sounds which means "to make self vile" as a threat more often than worship.

Ululu See Hillel, below.  This is the "lord, lord" form of prophesying Jesus does not hear.
B.Transf., of places, to ring, resound, re-echo with howling: căno  I. Neutr., to utter melodious notes, to sing, sound, play.

Gen. 49:7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel:
        I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.


"Dan," he says, "shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse-heels, so that his rider shall fall backwards (i.e., he will teach candidates black magic)
Gen 49:17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way,
        an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels,
        so that his rider shall fall backward.
Dan and the Temple Builder
2Chr. 2:13 And now I have sent a cunning man, endued with understanding,
        of Huram my father’s,
2Chr. 2:14 The son of a woman of the daughters of Dan [Naphtali 1Ki 7:14], and his father was a man of Tyre, skilful to work in gold, and in silver, in brass, in iron, in stone, and in timber, in purple, in blue, and in fine linen, and in crimson; also to grave any manner of graving, and to find out every device which shall be put to him, with thy cunning men, and with the cunning men of my lord David thy father.

so that his rider shall fall backward: Of Pentecostals and Serpent handlers, singers and dancers:  GROUP ELEMENTAL is built through loud, rhythmic music and emotional ploy from the leader beforehand, composed to put the group in unison of thought; group's expectation and desire for the healings and falling backward cause it to happen.

ALL musical terms and names of instruments have evil roots and in the Greek literature singing and playing instruments is known as enchantment: John called them sorcerers (Rev 18:22-23) 

The purpose of the Levites sacrificial music was to "make the lambs dumb before the slaugheter priest." The victim must be silenced and so the LOUD noise of the Levites made it imposible to hear the Word of God.

Biteth is: 5391.  nashak, naw-shak┤; a primitive root; to strike with a sting (as a serpent); figuratively, to oppress with interest on a loan: bite, lend upon usury.

This is the bite of the same "serpent" in the garden of Eden:

5175.  nachash, naw-khawsh┤; from 5172; a snake (from its hiss):--serpent.
5172. nachash, naw-khash┤; a primitive root; properly, to hiss, i.e. whisper a (magic) spell; generally, to prognosticate: certainly, divine
, enchanter, (use) x enchantment, learn by experience, x indeed, diligently observe.

Nachuwsh (h5153) naw-khoosh'; appar. pass. part. of 5172 (perh. in the sense of ringing, i. e. bell-metal; or from the red color of the throat of a serpent [5175, as denom.] when hissing); coppery, i. e. (fig.) hard: - of brass. 

Nechiylah (h5155) nekh-ee-law'; prob. denom. from 2485; a flute: - [plur.] Nehiloth.

Chaliyl (h2485) khaw-leel'; from 2490; a flute (as perforated): 

The Hebrew word rendered "serpent" in Genesis 3:1 is Nachash (from the root Nachash, to shine, and means a shinning one. Hence, in Chaldee it means brass or copper, because of its shining. Hence also, the word Nehushtan, a piece of brass, in 2K ings 18:4.

In the same way Saraph, in Isaiah 6:2,6, means a burning one, and, because the serpents mentioned in Numbers 21 were burning, in the poison of their bite, they were called Saraphim, or Seraphs.

"The serpent-charmers usual instrument is the flute. Those who professed the art of taming serpents were called by the Hebrews menachashim, while the art itself was called lachash , (Jer 8:17; Ecc 10:11)" Smith's Dictionary, Serpent.

Lachash (h3908) lakh'-ash; from 3907; prop. a whisper, i. e. by impl. (in a good sense) a private prayer, (in a bad one) an incantation; concr. an amulet: - charmed, earring, enchantment, orator, prayer.

Curse is Maledico  B.Transf., a cursed thing: Christus factus pro nobis maledictum  Plaut. Bacch. 1, 2, 10

IN THE BEGINNING TIMES:

Gen 3:[14]  Yahweh God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, cursed are you above all cattle, and above every animal of the field. On your belly shall you go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life.
Gen 3:[15]  I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel."
Again: Gen. 49:17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.
    Rom. 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
IN THE END TIMES:
LONG BEFORE THE END TIMES.

Rev. 22:1  And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Rev. 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Those LACKING GRACE intend to impose the Levitical Singers into the Ekklesia: by definition they will be OUTSIDE.

The Levites were SACRIFICED to the worship of the starry host BECAUSE of the musical idolatry at Mount Sinai as prophesied:
Gen. 49:5 Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments [Sword or Musical]
        of cruelty are in their habitations.
Gen. 49:6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret;
        unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united:
        for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill
        they digged down a wall.
Robert Jameson notes

Thus the numbering of the people was subservient to the separation of the Levites from those Israelites who were fit for military service,

> and to the practical introduction of the law respecting the first-born,

> for whom the tribe of Levi became a substitute [Ex 13:2 Nu 3:12].

Numbers 3:5-10. Bring the tribe of Levi near--The Hebrew word "bring near" is a sacrificial term, denoting the presentation of an offering to God; and the use of the word, therefore. in connection with the Levites, signifies that they were devoted as an offering to the sanctuary, no longer to be employed in any common offices.

They were subordinate to the priests, who alone enjoyed the privilege of entering the holy place.

Josephus says that the Levites destroyed the nation.

Singers and Instrument players are also SCAPE GOATS in those assemblies sent strong delusions.

Sorcerers Pharmakos A. one sacrificed or executed as an atonement or purification for others, scapegoatand, since criminals were reserved for this fate, a general name of reproach,
Rev. 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy SORCERIES were all nations deceived.

Greek Religion: Thargelia, when a scapegoat (pharmakos) assumed the communal guilt; and the Pyanepsia, a bean feast in which boys collected offerings to hang on the eiresione ("wool pole"). Women celebrated the Thesmophoria in honour of Demeter and commemorated the passing of Adonis with laments and miniature gardens, while images were swung from trees at the Aiora to get rid of an ancient hanging curse. Magic was widespread. Spells were inscribed on lead tablets. Statues of Hecate, goddess of witchcraft, stood outside dwellings, while Pan's image was beaten with herbs in time of meat shortage.

Adonis or Tammuz was worshipped even in the Temple by women [Ezek 8].  Pagans accepted Jesus as Adonis.  Whatever the name, when you see musical "worship" imposed you know that women or the effeminate have taken over.  The GOAT in the Greek world was called CAPPELLA. As Satan he is Azazel who taught makind all of the TRICKS of his trade including "mixed sex choirs, instrumental music and putting on of apparel."

The musicians CLAIM to lead you into the presence of God and therefore they ARE God's chosen vessels to pour out His wrath on the lost.

THE TRUTH THREAD FOR THE ASSEMBLY [Ekklesia]

As the  "harps-like sounds" were all judgmental and prophetic of judgment, the angel to the LIVING was to "preach the gospel."  Therefore, for the assembly or ekklesia the DIRECT COMMAND of Jesus is to teach His Word which is free (Isa 55) Water of the Word.
Rev. 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things 
        in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David,
        and the bright and morning star.

Rev. 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. 
        And let him that heareth say, Come
        And let him that is athirst come.
        And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely

In Amos and Isaiah 5 musical instruments caused the people to hunger and thiirst for the Word: they went from place to place but could not find it. As a resulted they went into captivity.

Ekklesia assembly less general than sullogos, the church. The sullogos is a meeting whether legal or riotous.

TRUTH: 2Pet. 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
LIES: 2Pet. 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation

The angels or messengers send The Word of Christ (Col 3) as Spirit (Eph 5; John 6:63) word to the church: Inside are the saved but OUTSIDE are the fabricated sermons, singers and instrument players: Sorcerers.

Rev. 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book,
        If any man shall add unto these things,
        God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

But the days to come are the wisest witnesses. [35] It is seemly for a man to speak well of the gods; for the blame is less that way.

Assemblies ekklŕsi-astŕs a member of the ekklesia synagogue, church  

CONCLUSION: it is not remotely possible to replace the ekklesia as a School of the Bible where we teach that which has been taught AND at the same time have musical worship teams with or without instruments. Long before, while the ANTI-ekklesia people are secretly plotting and gradually imposing new styles of worship and non-sedentary women, Jesus has visited for the last time and in the words of Amos "will not pass that way again."

That means that delusional gradualism prepares people for bringing the confessedly Levitie singers and musicians into the Holy Place figurative of the Body of Christ.    They (in type) will have been executed spiritually and the candlestick of the seven spirits of Christ REMOVED.

In none of the many examples is there any grace left.

but the brazen foreigners and redheads worthless sons of worthless fathers, 

these we use for everything, hese latest parvenus, whom the city before this wouldn't have lightly used even for random scapegoats. [sorcerers]

   Rev. 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. [Scapegoats]

Used in a text parallel to David's Naked Dance by Plautus, Bacchides

LYDUS  For some time, Pistoclerus, I've been following you in silence, watching what you were doing in this dress
(110)
For, so may the Gods favour me, even Lycurgus himself seems to me as if he could be led into debauchery here. Whither now are you betaking yourself hence in an opposite direction with such a train?
PISTOCLERUS  To this place (pointing to the house) .

LYDUS  Why to this place? Who lives there?

PISTOCLERUS  Love, Pleasure, Venus, [Lucifer, Zoe] Beauty, Joy, Jesting, Dalliance, Converse, and Sweet-kissing.

LYDUS  What intercourse have you with these most destructive Deities?

PISTOCLERUS  Bad are those men who speak evil of the good. You speak not well of even the Gods themselves; you do what is not right.

"Barbaro" signifies "Roman," the scene being in Attica. We learn from St. Augustine that the Potitii received the epithet of "stulti," "unwise," from the following circumstance. They were the hereditary priests of Hercules, at Rome. Wishing to lighten their duties, they instructed some slaves in their office, for which, by the wrath of the Divinity twelve families of them were destroyed in one night.

Hercules is Herakles worshipped at TYRE. See 2Maccabees to the worship in Jerusalem where the Pipers hoped to Get people (Jesus) to lament and dance the "ouchie" initiation while the clergy PIPED.

The Greeks also built one of their gymnasia (these were notorious throughout the ancient world for their association with homosexual practices) in Jerusalem, which 'attracted the noblest young men of Israel...subduing them under the petaso' (emphasis ours -- 2 Macc. 4:12). In the traditional Latin translation the above phrase is rendered 'to put in brothels' (Riley:15).

The tensions which led to the Jewish revolt were exacerbated when the Jewish high priest, a Hellenist himself, offered a sacrifice to Heracles (Hercules) who was a Greek symbol of homosexuality. Riley adds,'The Jewish temple itself became the scene of pagan sacrificial meals and sexual orgies [including homosexuality].' The final insult (for which Antiochus is identified in the Bible as the archtype of the antichrist)'was the installation in the temple of a pagan symbol, possibly a representation of Zeus [Baal], called by a sardonic pun 'the abomination of desolation'' (ibid.:16).

Clement Contra Heresies.
Hercules
, the son of Zeus-a true son of Zeus-was the offspring of that long night, who with hard toil accomplished the twelve labours in a long time, but in one night deflowered the fifty daughters of Thestius, and thus was at once the debaucher and the bridegroom of so many virgins.

It is not, then, without reason that the poets call him a cruel wretch and a nefarious scoundrel. It were tedious to recount his adulteries of all sorts,
        and
debauching of boys. For your gods did not even abstain from boys, homosexuals
        one having loved Hylas, another Hyacinthus, another Pelops, another Chrysippus, and another Ganymede.

Let such gods as these be worshipped by your wives, and let them pray that their husbands be such as these-so temperate; that, emulating them in the same practices, they may be like the gods.

Such gods let your boys be trained to worship, that they may grow up to be men with the accursed likeness of fornication on them received from the gods. But it is only the male deities, perhaps, that are impetuous in sexual indulgence.

It is absolutely certain based on Jacob's prophecy, the Testament of Levi, the Tyre connection and most scholarly views that when God "turned them over to worship the starry host" (Acts 7 etal) this was the same Sabazianism followed by Egypt and the Phoenicians who invaded Tyre.  Therefore, the common thread in the literature can be used to explain what historically happened for most of the history of the Temple.  It will not cause harm to read what the Bible writers understood.

A. Obsōnātor (ops- ), ōris, m. [id..] , I.a buyer of victuals; a caterer, purveyor:   According to Paul the corrupters of the Word were hucksters or adulterers "selling learning at retail." Jesus consigned the pipers, singers and dancers to the marketplace where the pagan gods were worshipped.

B. One who wears soft clothing.

ALL RELIGIOUS OPERATIVES WERE CALLED PARASITES

Parasītus (parasitos,
“table companion”). A word which among the Greeks denoted originally the priest's assistant, who, like the priest, received his support from the offerings made to the temple, in return for certain services. These services included the collection and care of supplies of corn due to the temple, assistance at certain sacrifices, and the preparation of the banquets connected with [p. 1175] certain festivals. The assistants of civil officials, who were maintained at the expense of the State, were also called parasites in many places. The word received another meaning in the Middle and New Greek comedy, where it means the hanger on, who plays the flatterer and buffoon, with a view to getting invited to dinner. The parasite was transferred as a standing character to the Roman imitations of Greek comedy, and figures largely in the plays of Plautus. Good examples of the stage parasite will be found in his Captivi Menaechmi Phormio of Terence.   

Diskouri such as Castor and Pollux the homosexual twins and Hercules introduced homosexuality into the Abomination of Desolation. 

D. Saltandum including David's Naked Dance

Hillel, Judgex 12:1 David's Praise word
2 Samuel 6. [14]  David danced before Yahweh with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod. [15]  So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of Yahweh with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.

2 Samuel 6.[14]  et David saltabat totis viribusanteDominum porro David erat accinctus ephod lineo [15]  etDavid et omnis domus Israhel ducebant arcamtestamentiDomini in iubilo et in clangore bucinae

SalĚtaĚtoĚry (slt-t˘r, s˘l-) adj.

1. Of, relating to, or adapted for leaping or dancing.
2. Proceeding by leaps rather than by smooth, gradual transitions.

Salto Salii a salitando), āvi, ātum, 1,

I.v. freq. n. and a. [2. salio], to dance (in the widest signif. of the word, including pantomime and gesticulation;

Saltō āvī, ātus, āre, freq. [salio] , to dance: in convivio saltare nudus coeperat: dancing a girl's part, tibicina a female flute player.

Tertullian: certainly you will not regard with approval those efforts after an artificial body which aim at surpassing the Creator's work;

Salax 

I. Fond of

"The ritual dance was probably widespread in the ancient East. David's performance has Egyptian parallels. Seti I, the father of Rameses II, and three other Pharaohs are said to have danced before a deity, and Asiatic monuments attest the custom elsewhere... The description of David's dance: he 'danced before Jehovah with all his might... leaping and dancing before Jeh' (2 S 6: 14-16) suggests three features that particular display and the mode of dancing which it represented: violent exertion, leaping (Mephassez) and whirling round (mekharker) . Perhaps the whirling dance of Islam is a modern parallel to the last." (Int Std Bible Ency., Games, p. 1170).


E.  Cĭncĭnaedus = kinaidos. I. He who practises unnatural lust, a sodomite, catamite,  carmen, i. e. an incantation, burdensome.

Malacus soft, pliant  Malus male tibi esse malo quam molliter, I would rather you should be unfortunate than effeminate,

Mollis 2. In a bad sense, soft, effeminate, unmanly, weak (syn. effeminatus): philosophus tam mollis, tam languidus, tam enervatus: Sabaei, Verg. G. 1, 57 : viri molles, i. e. pathici, Liv. 33, 28 ; Sen. Ep. 87: disciplina, effeminate, Cic. Fin. 1, 11, 37 : delicatior

Sabaeus adj., Sabaios, Sabaean, 
Iamblichus III. Of the Greek Eleusinian: Thus "Bacchus was directly called upon," he says. The Sabazian worship was Sabbatic; the names Evius, or Hevius, and Luaios are identical with Hivite and Levite. The French name Louis is the Hebrew Levi; Iacchus again is Iao or Jehovah; and Baal or Adon, like Bacchus, was a phallic god.

The Hebrew Kadeshim or galli lived "by the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the grove," or bust of Venus-Astarte, says verse the seventh in the twenty-third chapter of 2 Kings.

The dance performed by David round the ark was the "circle-dance" said to have been prescribed by the Amazons for the Mysteries. Such was the dance of the daughters of Shiloh (Judges xxi. 21, 23 et passim), and the leaping of the prophets of Baal (I Kings xviii. 26). It was simply a characteristic of the Sabean worship, for it denoted the motion of the planets round the sun. 

The bacchant worship as one of the sects outlawed in Romans 14 were also outlawed by the Civil government. Livy notes:

First, then, a great part of them are women, and this was the source of the evil; the rest are males, but nearly resembling women; actors and pathics in the vilest lewdness; night revelers, driven frantic by wine, noises of instruments, and clamors

The conspiracy, as yet, has no strength; but it has abundant means of acquiring strength, for they are becoming more numerous every day.

Your ancestors would not allow that you should ever assemble casually, without some good reason; that is, either when the standard was erected on the Janiculum, and the army led out on occasion of elections; or when the tribunes proclaimed a meeting of the plebeians, or some of the magistrates summoned you to it.

When any person was introduced he was delivered as a victim to the priests, who led him away to a place

resounding with shouts, the sound of music, and the beating of cymbals and drums, lest his cries, while suffering violation, should be heard abroad."

She then entreated and besought him to put an end to that matter in some way or other; and not to plunge himself into a situation, where he must first suffer, and afterwards commit, every thing that was abominable. Nor did she quit him until the young man gave her his promise to keep himself clear of those rites. 

Jesus said that God can only be worshipped in the PLACE of our human spirit as we give heed to the Spirit OF Truth which is the Word of God.  Otherwise, if you fall into ceremonial legalism using the effeminate Levitical falsettos, you will invite the Cynics or dogs into your assembly: the same WOLVES or pederasts Paul warned about in Acts 20.

Phil. 3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
Phil. 3:3 For we are the circumcision, 
        which worship God IN the spirit,
        and rejoice in Christ Jesus,
        and have no confidence in the flesh.
Phil. 3:4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh.
        If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:

Worship IN the Flesh as opposed to IN the Spirit means that the spirit is a PLACE: we do not let the dogs or cynics in with their "old style praise howling" seeking whom they might devour. 

F.  What the clergy class hoped John and Jesus would do.

And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? Luke 7:31

They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept. Luke 7:32

Sportive is what the clergy wanted Jesus to do when they piped:

EUCLIO  (to himself)  It wasn't for nothing that the raven was just now croaking on my left hand; he was both scratching the ground with his feet and croaking with his voice. At once my heart began to jump about
(626)
, and to leap within my breast. But why do I delay to run?

On my left hand: We cannot fail to remember here the exactly similar expression of Gay, in the fable of the Farmer's Wife and the Raven:

That raven on yon left-hand oak
(Curse on his ill-betiding croak!)
Bodes me no good.

Began to jump about: "Ars ludicra" here means "the art of a 'ludius,' or stage-player," who moves to and fro and gesticulates-hence "cor cœpit artem facere ludicram" would strictly mean "my heart begins to move to and fro like a play-actor."

Pindar Olympian 5 of the Lydian Flute: 1] Daughter of Ocean, with a smiling heart receive the sweet bloom of lofty excellence and Olympian garlands, the gifts of Psaumis and of his mule car team with untiring feet. [4] Psaumis who, exalting your city, Camarina, which cares for its people, [5] honored the six double altars, at the greatest festivals of the gods, with the sacrifice of oxen..15] Always, when it is a question of excellence, toil and expense strive to accomplish a deed that is shrouded in danger; those who are successful seem wise, even to their fellow-citizens. [17] Savior Zeus, high in the clouds, you who dwell on the hill of Cronus and honor the wide-flowing Alpheus and the sacred cave of Ida! I come as your suppliant, singing to the sound of Lydian flutes, [20][20] entreating you to adorn this city with glorious hosts of noble men;

Note 1. E.Ba.16 Euripides Bacchae
Chorus
[135] He is sweet in the mountains, whenever after the running dance he falls on the ground, wearing the sacred garment of fawn skin, hunting the blood of the slain goat, a raw-eaten delight, rushing to the [140]  Phrygian, the Lydian mountains, and the leader of the dance is Bromius, evoe!  The plain flows with milk, it flows with wine, it flows with the nectar of bees. [145]  The Bacchic one, raising the flaming torch of pine on his thyrsos, like the smoke of Syrian incense, darts about, arousing the wanderers with his racing and dancing, agitating them with his shouts, [150]  casting his rich locks into the air. And among the Maenad cries his voice rings deep:  “Go, Bacchae, go, Bacchae, with the luxury of Tmolus that flows with gold, [155]  sing of Dionysus, beneath the heavy beat of drums, celebrating in delight the god of delight with Phrygian shouts and cries, [160]  when the sweet-sounding sacred pipe sounds a sacred playful tune suited [165]  to the wanderers, to the mountain, to the mountain!” And the Bacchante, rejoicing like a foal with its grazing mother, rouses her swift foot in a gamboling dance
AGAIN ABOUT THE LEVITES

While the Levites were of the tribe of Levi the name is connected to the worship of Dionysus--the new wineskin god--in Egypt. Because musical idolatry caused God to turn them over to worship the starry host the worship was that which they had practiced for their 430 years in Egypt where they did not follow Jehovah.
Gen. 49:6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret;
        unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united:
  
     for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

The secret is 5475. cowd, sode; from 3245; a session, i.e. company of persons (in close deliberation); by implication, intimacy, consultation, a secret:-assembly, consel, inward, secret (counsel)

Dunlap, in his introduction to "Sod, the Mysteries of Adonis," explains the word "Sod" as arcanum, religious mystery, on the authority of Schindler's "Penteglott." "The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him," says Psalm xxv., 14. This is a mistranslation of the Christians, for it ought to read "Sod Ihoh (the mysteries of Ihoh) are for those who fear him" (Dunlap, "Mysteries of Adonis," xi). "Al (El) is terrible in the great Sod of the Kadeshim (the priests, the holy, the Initiated), Psalm lxxxix, 7" (ibid.). The Kadeshim were very far from holy. (Vide Part II., "The Holy of Holies.")

You can see more of this in the women's worship of Tammuz while the men held a Sun Rise service to their sun god in Ezekiel who also identifies the speakers, singers and instrument players as hypocrites.
WHAT THE JEWS AND ALL STUDENTS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT EASILY UNDERSTAND.

Under "Star Worship" the Jewish Encyclopedia states:

"Star Worship" is perhaps the oldest form of idolatry practiced by the ancients. The observation of the stars in the East very early led the people to regard the planets and the fixed stars as gods. The religion of the ancient Egyptians is known to have consisted preeminently of Sun-worship. Moses sternly warned the Israelites against worshipping the Sun, Moon, stars, and all the hosts of heaven (Deuteronomy 4:19; 17:3). The Israelites fell into this kind of idolatry and as early as the time of Amos they had the images of Siccuth and Chium, 'the stars of their god' (Amos 5:26); the latter name is generally supposed to denote the planet Saturn. That the Kingdom of Israel fell earlier than that of Judah is stated (II Kings 17:16) to have been due, among other causes, to its worshipping the host of heaven.

But the Kingdom of Judah in its later period seems to have outdone the Northern Kingdom [Israel] in star-worship." Of Manasseh it is related that he built altars to all the hosts of heaven in the two courts of the house of YHWY, and it seems it was the practice of even Kings before him to appoint priests who offered sacrifices to the Sun, the Moon, the planets, and all the hosts of heaven. Altars for star-worship were built on the roofs of the houses, and horses and chariots were dedicated to the worship of the Sun. (II Kings 21:5; 23:4-5, 11-12) Star-worship continued in Judah until the 18th year of Josiah's reign (621 B.C.) when the King took measures to abolish all kinds of idolatry. But although star-worship was then abolished as a public cult, it was practiced privately by individuals who worshipped the heavenly bodies, and poured out libations to them on the roofs of their houses (Zephaniah 1:5; Jeremiah 8:2; 19:13)  Jeremiah, who prophesied in the sixth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin (591 B.C.) describes the worship of the Sun as practiced in the court of the Temple (Ezekiel 8:16) and that even after the destruction of the Temple the women insisted on continuing to worship the Queen of Heaven.

"The ancient Hebrews, being nomads like the Arabs, favored the Moon, while the Babylonians, who were an agricultural nation, preferred the Sun. But, as appears from Ezekiel 20:7-8 the Moon-worship of the Israelites, even while they were still in Egypt was combined with Sun-worship."
How could those promoting paganism have missed Acts 7:

Acts 7:42 Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness?
Because God had abandoned the nation to become a Goyim or Gentile-like nation it is reasonable that many ancient views of the temple were actually ziggurats.

These were the mysteries of Baal, Adonis and Bacchus, who were all sun-gods and had serpents for symbols.  This was the basis of the Sabbath as a day of WORSHIP as opposed to an imposed rest to keep people from attending the Levites worship services derived from Babylon and Egypt.
Hislop notes that The "worship leaders" were the NÔgals and NÔrgals from India and the Indian NÔgas the American NÔgals. The NÔrgal was the Chaldean and Assyrian chief of the Magi (Rab-Mag), and the NÔgal was the chief sorcerer of the Mexican Indians. Both derive their names from Nergal-Serezer, the Assyrian god, and the Hindu NÔgas. Both have the same faculties and the power to have an attendant dŠmon, with whom they identify themselves completely. The Chaldean and Assyrian NÔrgal kept his dŠmon, in the shape of some animal considered sacred, inside the temple

The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia Serpent Worship.

"Traces of this superstition are thought by certain critics to be discoverable in the religion of Israel. Stade mentions that W. R. Smith supposed the serpent to be the totem of the house of David (Geschichte, I, 465). H. P. Smith says: "We know of a Serpent's Stone near Jerusalem, which was the site of a sanctuary (1 Kings 1:9), and this sanctuary was dedicated to Yahweh" (Hist of Old Testament, 239, 240). Special reliance is placed on the narrative of the brazen serpent, which Hezekiah is recorded to have destroyed as leading to idolatry, (2 Kings 18:4). "In that case," says H. P. Smith, "we must treat the Nehushtan as a veritable idol of the house of Israel, which had been worshipped in the temple from the time of its erection. Serpent worship is so widespread that we should be surprised not to find traces of it in Israel" (ut supra). In the same line, see G. B. Gray, Nu, 275-76. The fancifulness of these deductions is obvious. See NEHUSHTAN. James Orr
The TWO THREADS are detailed from Genesis to Revelation is a "historical record of the great struggle between white and black magic:
         Between the Prophets who were knowledgeable and of the RIGHT PATH
         and the LEFT PATH, the Levites, the clergy of the brutal masses.

That there were two schools of Magic, and that the orthodox Levites did not belong to the holy one, is shown in the words pronounced by the dying Jacob.  

The PROPHECY is clear and the OUTCOME is certain when God PARTITIONED OFF the  Serpent and Star thread from the godly Synagogue or Word of God thread. Here is some of the connection.

3881.  Leviyiy, lay-vee-ee┤; or Leviy, lay-vee┤; patronymically from 3878; a Levite or descendant of Levi: Leviite.
3878.  Leviy, lay-vee┤; from 3867; attached; Levi, a son of Jacob:--Levi. See also 3879, 3881.

When it became obvious that the Jews never understood what happened under the Old Testament, they fully understood that the text had been perfectly clear: in the Words of Jesus the truth had been hidden in parables from the foundation of the world: this was to prevent the false religionists from understanding and SELLING what God gave free of charge.  They understood that the Law of Moses would fulfill this SERPENT GENERATION under the Levites which has a fuller meaning than just being OF the tribe of Levi.

See more of the too-late understanding of the Jews.

The fact that God wrote on two stones which He prepared, and that He wrote on front and back is believed to show the connection between the Oral and written law.

"we must remember that in the absence of Moses, and in the uncertainty as to what had become of him, but--ex hypothesi--
        in the absence otherwise of all temptation, Israel adored the golden calf;
        the
old evil order was thus reinstated, and I conclude that the serpent returned.
........It is to be understood further that the riot of the feast which followed the idol-worship
        signifies a
sexual orgy

"When therefore Moses came down from the mountain carrying the Tables of the Law
he
broke them in the presence of the people, which, according to Scripture was because 'his anger waxed hot." (Waite, A. E., The Holy Kabbalah, p. 307-308, Citadel Press) 

The later Jews faced the fact that the Law and the Temple must have had some message which they did not understand. The mystical Jews came very close to the truth in some areas so that--

"It is recognized by the ZOHAR that the second Tables embodied another record,
........... which was the Law of opportunism,
........... the Law of mine and thine--of prohibition and denial, being that of bondage.

"It was sacred after its own manner because it was a shadow of the first intention, but it reflects at a very far distance.

I do not know whether it is affirmed literally that it is the work of the Tree of Knowledge,
but this must be held to follow from numerous impressive intimations and the Secret Doctrine,

with all the Oral Law by which that Doctrine is encompassed, is the Tree of Life." (Waite, A. E., The Holy Kabbalah, p. 308-9, Citadel Press)

This will prove to the false teachers what the Bible makes clear: the king, kingdom, sacrificial system and temple was given as part of the curse imposed upon the nation when the elders "fired God" and wanted a king like the nations so that they could worship like the nations.

The Kabalists explain the fiery serpents by saying that "this was the name given to the tribe of Levi, to all the Levites," in short, and that Moses was The PROPHET whom the musical idolaters refused to listen to and thus ANOTHER prophet like Moses would arise. The original meaning of the "Dragon-Slayers" are the prophets thundering against the "abominations" of the people of Israel, that there were two schools.

"Fiery serpents" was, then, simply the epithet given to the Levites of the priestly caste, after they had departed from the good law, the traditional teachings of Moses: and to all those who followed Black Magic.

Peter warned "Save yourselves from this CROOKED RACE."  That points specificially to the assemblies where they got drunk on wine and music (Piped down with wine) in CONTRAST to Paul's absolute command to use THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN as the only resource for what he defined as a "synagogue" where preaching and a "praise service" were always outlawed.

LEFT HAND RESTORATION can mean RESTORATION of the Sacrificial system where the musicians "made the lambs dumb before the slaughter priests or

RIGHT HAND RESTORATION of the Qahal, synagogue or Church in the Wilderness now FREED by the utter destruction of the Levites and Danites and their "temples built by human hands."

As a synagogue or ekklesia in NO SENSE was either a MOVEMENT which had any reach beyond the local community with ten MATURE males.

The word RESTORATION MOVEMENT invented by the Disciples of Christ as a High Church now intends to lump "disciples" which come in the singular form into an ORGANIZATION which was just what Jesus came to REmove so that what remained was the local synagogue, ekklesia or school of the Bible.  The ONLY function according to all of Paul's writings was to "Make known the manifest wisdom of God."   The true REST is defined in Isaiah 58 as NOT seeking your own pleasure (Rome 15:1) NOR speaking YOUR OWN WORDS.  It it is BIGGER than that it is an INSTITUTE calculated to live on the DESTITUTE as Jesus warned about the Scribes and Pharisees He defined as hypocrites by pointing to speakers, singers and instrument players.

Calvin called his a Restoration Movement was to PEEL OFF everything not defined by the Word of God: this included sermonizers, clergy singers and clergy instrumentalists.

RISING UP TO PLAY IN MUSICAL IDOLATRY AT MOUNT SINAI

After the musical idolatry at Mount Sinai God turned the Levites over to worship the Starry Host.  This was a direct command to return to the Dionysus or Bacchus worship in Egypt which has direct links to the Tribe of Levi.

Of the Greek Eleusinian: Thus "Bacchus was directly called upon," he says. The Sabazian worship was Sabbatic; the names Evius, or Hevius, and Luaios are identical with Hivite and Levite. The French name Louis is the Hebrew Levi; Iacchus again is Iao or Jehovah; and Baal or Adon, like Bacchus, was a phallic god.

Plutarch: what god is worshipped by the Jews: When all the company requested and earnestly begged it of him; first of all (says he), the time and manner of the greatest and most holy solemnity of the Jews is exactly agreeable to the holy rites of Bacchus; for that which they call the Fast they celebrate in the midst of the vintage, furnishing their tables with all sorts of fruits while they sit under tabernacles made of vines and ivy; and the day which immediately goes before this they call the day of Tabernacles.

Within a few days after they celebrate another feast, not darkly but openly, dedicated to Bacchus, for they have a feast amongst them called Kradephoria, from carrying palm-trees, and Thyrsophoria, when they enter into the temple carrying thyrsi.

What they do within I know not; but it is very probable that they perform the rites of Bacchus. First they have little trumpets, such as the Grecians used to have at their Bacchanalia to call upon their gods withal.

Others go before them playing upon harps, which they call Levites, whether so named from Lusius or Evius,--either word agrees with Bacchus.

And I suppose that their Sabbaths have some relation to Bacchus; for even now many call the Bacchi by the name of Sabbi, and they make use of that word at the celebration of Bacchus's orgies.

And this may be discovered out of Demosthenes and Menander. Nor would it be out of place, were any one to say that the name Sabbath was given to this feast from the agitation and excitement [Greek omitted] which the priests of Bacchus display.

So in the nocturnal ceremonies of Bacchus (as the fashion is amongst us), they make use of music, and call the god's nurses [Greek omitted].

High up on the wall of their temple is a representation of the thyrsus and timbrels, which surely suits no other god than Bacchus.

. [Bacchae: Dionysus = Bacchus = Evius = Bromius (all different names for the same god]
THE CHURCH IN THE WILDERNESS

The Kingdom of Christ was a RESTORATION of that which Godly people practiced in the synagogue beginning as the "church in the wilderness."  
        It is INCLUSIVE of Rest, Reading and Rehearsing the Word of God
        It is EXCLUSIVE of "vocal or instrumental rejoicing" the same "triumph" Judas would try on Jesus (Psalm 41)
 


The SACRIFICIAL thread under the Levites whom Josephus was wise enough to blame (along with Ezekiel) with the destruction of the nation, is THAT WHICH is called by the LEFT WING which is the Instrumental Music groups to which the RIGHT WING or Church of Christ never belonged.

After the fall from grace at Mount Sinai, God turned them over to worship the starry host which was that practiced by the LEVITES as a synomym for the musical-perverted worship of Dionysus.
 
THE UNHOLY ROLE OF THE LEVITICAL WARRIOR MUSICIANS.

1Chr. 15:19 So the singers, Heman, Asaph, and Ethan, were appointed to sound with cymbals of brass;
SOUND: 8085.  shama, shaw-mah┤; a primitive root; to hear intelligently (often with implication of attention, obedience, etc.; causatively, to tell, etc.):—x attentively, call (gather) together

CYMBALS:
6750.  = tsalal, tsaw-lal┤; a primitive root (identical with 6749 through the idea of vibration); to tinkle, i.e. rattle together (as the ears in reddening with shame, or the teeth in chattering with fear):quiver, tingle.

6767.  tslatsal, tsel-aw-tsal┤; from 6750 reduplicated; a clatter, i.e. (abstractly) whirring (of wings); (concretely) a cricket; also a harpoon (as rattling), a cymbal (as clanging):--cymbal, locust, shadowing, spear.

The "locusts" in John's Revelation are the Muses who along with the speakers and instrument players are called sorcerers.

CYMBALS AND THE TAMBOURINE WERE WOMEN'S INSTRUMENTS

7 Drum-drubbing debauchee: "Typanotriba." Literally, "drum," or "tambourine beater." He alludes to the eunuch-priests of Cybele, who used to beat tambourines in her procession-probably in allusion to debauchees, emasculated by riot and dissipation

The Sistrum of Miriam defines as a prophetess or Sorceress:

RESTORING THE POPE'S CASTRATED SINGERS.  [beginning of text]  

One of the vices which the Spaniards had brought to Italy in the 16 century along with the Borgia family and the Spanish Roman Emperors was the falsetto singer. There were artists who could sing falsetto with distinction, but as the opera gained in popularity in Italy the practice began of emasculating boys with good voices and retaining them as male soprani or,

as the Italians, with their usual lack of Christian reticence about sex called them, the castrati. They were in every opera in the 18th century, but foreign visitors were never reconciled to them. The famous English weekly,

The Spectator, wrote about "the shrill celestial whine of eunuchs," and by the end of the 18th century they began to fade out of the opera-house.

BRASS PROVES THEIR SERPENT ENCHANTMENT ROLES:

5178. nechosheth, nekh-o┤-sheth; for 5154; copper, hence, something made of that metal, i.e. coin, a fetter; figuratively, base (as compared with gold or silver):brasen, brass, chain, copper, fetter (of brass), filthiness, steel.
5153.  nachuwsh, naw-khoosh┤; apparently passive participle of 5172 (perhaps in the sense of ringing, i.e. bell-metal; or from the red color of the throat of a serpent (5175, as denominative) when hissing); coppery, i.e. (figuratively) hard:—of brass.
5172.  nachash, naw-khash┤; a primitive root; properly, to hiss, i.e. whisper a (magic) spell; generally, to prognosticate:—x certainly, divine, enchanter, (use) x enchantment, learn by experience, x indeed, diligently observe.

5173.  nachash, nakh┤-ash; from 5172; an incantation or augury:—enchantment.
1Chr. 15:20 And Zechariah, and Aziel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Unni, and Eliab, and Maaseiah, and Benaiah, with psalteries on Alamoth
5961.  Alamowth, al-aw-moth┤; plural of 5959; properly, girls, i.e. the soprano or female voice, perhaps falsetto:--Alamoth.

Psalm.Delitzsch.Psalm.html

Moreover, we must take into consideration the facts that the compass of the tenor extends even into the soprano, that the singers were of different ages down to twenty years of age, and that Oriental, and more particularly even Jewish, song is fond of falsetto singing. We therefore adopt Perret- Gentil's rendering, chant avec voix de femmes, and still more readily Armand de Mestral's, en soprano; whereas Melissus' rendering, "upon musical instruments called Alamoth (the Germans would say, upon the virginal)," has nothing to commend it.

5959.   almah, al-maw┤; feminine of 5958; a lass (as veiled or private):--damsel, maid, virgin.
1Chr. 15:21 And Mattithiah, and Elipheleh, and Mikneiah, and Obededom, and Jeiel, and Azaziah, with harps on the Sheminith to excel.

1Chr. 15:29 And it came to pass, as the ark of the covenant of the LORD came to the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looking out at a window saw king David dancing and playing: and she despised him in her heart.

THE WARRIOR SORCERY COMPLEX

1 Chr 25:1  David, together with the commanders of the army, set apart some of the sons of Asaph, Heman and Jeduthun for the ministry of prophesying, accompanied by harps, lyres and cymbals. Here is the list of the men who performed this service:

Payne insists that the Hebrew of 1 Chronicles 25:1 unambiguously identifies these leaders as military commanders, an interpretation favoured by several Bible translations. (Payne, p 423-4; NASB, NIV, NKJV, NRSV, Jerusalem Bible) If military commanders had a particular interest in the appointment of musicians, it suggests a strong link between music and warfare

"The Hithpa'el of nb', in the ancient texts, refers to ecstasy and delirium rather than to the emission of a 'prophecy'." (de Vaux, Roland, The Bible and the Ancient Near East, p. 243 Doubleday

"Maniac inspirations, the violent possession which threw sibyls and priestesses into contortions--the foaming lip and streaming hair and glazed or glaring eyes-- have no place in the self-controlling dignity of Christian inspiration. Even Jewish prophets, in the paroxysm of emotion, might lie naked on the ground and rave (1 Sam. xix. 24); but the genuine inspiration in Christian ages never obliterates the self-consciousness or overpowers the reason. It abhors the hysteria and stimulation and frenzy which have sometimes disgraced revivalism and filled lunatic asylums." (Pulpit Commentary, 1 Cor., p. 460).

TEMPLE DEDICATION BY THE LEVITES WITH MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS AS NEW PATTERNISM.
The temple dedication by Solomon and the Civil-Clergy-Complex REMOVED the Ark of the Covenant in the tent God permitted David to a HOUSE which Solomon assumed to be a pagan-like temple and not a house or family.  This and other loud noise connected with "silencing the lambs before the slaughter"--as they repeated with Jesus--is never called "music."  

The clear message is that almost no one could "come before the throne" typified by the Ark of the Covenant. Any Levitical singer or instrument player who came near any holy thing would be put to death. Here is the teachings spread by the NACC as a foundation upon which to build ecumenical unity. However, the unity if based on restoring "music" which in Solomon's Temple Dedication filled the temple with a cloud which prevented the spiritual people from having symbolic access to God's presence, His mercy and His Word once hidden in the Ark of the covenant.

The Israelites had come to believe that God literally dwelled on the throne and therefore it became an idol in the Cella or most holy place quite identical to Hiram's Temple at Tyre.
David Faust: I . In the Old Testament the Lord didn't merely "permit" the use of musical instruments as aids to worship. He commanded their use.

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

Second Chronicles 5:14 adds an important point about the dedication of the temple. After the instrumentalists and the singers joined together in united praise to the Lord, the next verse says, "Then the temple of the Lord was filled with a cloud, and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the temple of God" God's "glory" in the form of a cloud was an expression of God's joy, pleasure, approval, and delight.

God was making known His presence in a very intense and powerfful way. The people not only honored the Lord as they played instruments and sang together, but they did so withh God's full and hearty approval. The Lord didn't just put up with the use of musical instruments; He smiled upon it, and expressed great delight and pleasure in the way His people praised Him through a combination of singing an instrumental accompaniment

It means to "surround with a stokade, and thus separate from the open country.  That was the signal that NO citizen quarantined to the synagogue had better be INSIDE CAMP.  Paul said that if we want to find Jesus we have to go OUTSIDE THE CAMP where the spiritual people attended synagogue, ekklesia or school of the Bible

There was no "singing with instrumental accompaniment": the SINGERS made ONE SOUND which is:
6963. qowl, kole; kole; from an unused root meaning to call aloud; a voice or sound, aloud, bleating, crackling, cry (+ out), fame, lightness, lowing, noise, + hold peace, (pro-) claim, proclamation, + sing, sound, + spark, thunder(-ing), voice, + yell

We learn from the Mishna and the Talmud that in the Hellenistic period no improvements or modifications that might affect the tone were permitted: no gold-plating of its interior, no plugging of holes, no alteration of its length (the minimum permissible length of a ritually approved horn was 3 handbreadths);

the shofar tone was to be preserved unaltered. Nor was the process of steaming or boiling permitted.

Apart from its liturgical uses the shofar was closely connected with magical symbolism. Its blast destroyed the walls of Jericho, and in the Dead Sea scrolls we read that during battles shofar blowers sounded a powerful war cry to instill fear into the hearts of the enemy while priests blew the six trumpets of killing. Historically the shofar has also served in a number of popular usages: it was sounded during rites to bring rain, in the event of local disasters, and so on. In our times its liturgical use is restricted to New Year (Rosh Hashanah) and the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). See Photos HERE.

"Only in Ps 150:3 is it (shophar) mentioned with most of the other really musical instruments. Hence, we must conclude that the function of the shophar was to make noise--be it of earthly or of eschatological character--but not to make music. After the destruction of the temple and the general banishment of all instrumental music, the shophar alone survived, just because it was not a musical instrument."(International Dictionary of the Bible, p. 473, Abingdon).

By missing Acts 7 and much of the Old Testament the foundation of ceremonial legalism misses the fact that:
  1. God promised David a TENT when he could not go before God at Gibeon.
  2. BUT, Solomon built God a HOUSE
  3. BUT, God does not dwell in or can be worshipped in houses built by hands, not can He be worshipped with the WORKS of human hands of which music is DEFINED as hard work and not even art.
All those OF TRUTH!
GOD SHUT OFF ACCESS TO HIM until they turned, converted or were baptized into Christ (2 Cor. 3)

6049.  anan, aw-nan┤; a primitive root; to cover; used only as a denominative from 6051, to cloud over; figuratively, to act covertly, i.e. practise magic: bring, enchanter, Meonemin, observe(-r of) times, soothsayer, sorcerer.
GOD SHUT OFF ACCESS which will not end until the mother of harlots [Rev 17] and her "lusted after fruits" as speakers, singers and instrument players John called SORCERERS are disposed of. [Rev 18]. The MUSICIAN are removed in Revelation 19.
God's glory FILLED the house with a CLOUD: h6051



The cloud symbolized God's presence but the PEOPLE were not permitted to "come boldly before the Throne room."

Ezek. 30:18 At Tehaphnehes also the day shall be darkened, when I shall break there the yokes of Egypt: and the pomp of her strength shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud shall cover her, and her daughters shall go into captivity.
    Ezek. 30:19 Thus will I execute judgments in Egypt: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Hos. 6:4 O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away.
   Hos. 6:5 Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth.

Hos. 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice;
        and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

The Veil (Vail) which cut off access to God, His mercy and His Word is the Hebrew:

        6531. perek, peh┤-rek; from an unused root meaning to break apart; fracture, i.e. severity: cruelty, rigour.
        6532. poreketh, po-reh┤-keth; feminine active participle of the same as 6531;
                   a separatrix,
i.e. (the sacred) screen:--vail.

We know that the Levites, the names of their instruments, the style of their performance and dress was the EFFEMINATE dress of Dionysus where males could be the "musical worship team" but they had to be effeminate as Paul hoped that the concision would let the knift slip and castrate themselves.

[130] Oh! ye venerable Genetyllides, what tender and voluptuous songs! They surpass the most lascivious kisses in sweetness; I feel a thrill of delight pass up me as I listen to them. (To EURIPIDES) Young man, if you are one, answer my questions, which I am borrowing from Aeschylus' "Lycurgeia." Whence comes this androgyne? What is his country? his dress? What contradictions his life shows! A lyre and a hair-net! A wrestling school oil flask and a girdle! What could be more contradictory? What relation has a mirror to a sword? (To AGATHON) And you yourself, who are you? Do you pretend to be a man? Where is your tool, pray? Where is the cloak, the footgear that belong to that sex? Are you a woman? Then where are your breasts? Answer me. But you keep silent. Oh! just as you choose; your songs display your character quite sufficiently. 

Hurry up! The signal for the meeting has just been raised on the Temple of Demeter. Farewell.

(They both depart. The scene changes to the interior of the Thesmophorion, where the women who form the chorus are assembled. Mnesilochus enters, in his feminine attire, striving to act as womanly as possible, and giving his voice as female a pitch and lilt as he can; he pretends to be addressing his slave-girl.) -

See Homer to Demeter The MOTHER OF THE GODS.

huparch˘ begin, take the initiative ,

Delitsch, Psalms: Moreover, we must take into consideration the facts that the compass of the tenor extends even into the soprano, that the singers were of different ages down to twenty years of age, and that Oriental, and more particularly even Jewish, song is fond of falsetto singing. We therefore adopt Perret- Gentil's rendering, chant avec voix de femmes, and still more readily Armand de Mestral's, en soprano; whereas Melissus' rendering, "upon musical instruments called Alamoth (the Germans would say, upon the virginal)," has nothing to commend it

THE CURSE OF THE LAW

The Curse on the "serpent" is a pattern: it is repeated by the tribe of Levi.  This appears in many places and before the NEO-Restoration movers go too far it should be noted that the Law of Moses was a CURSE added specificially because of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai.

They claim they are Jews #2453 Ioudas - Judas; in Hebrew 3063 - Yehudah - a descendant of Judah. The paid their way into the Herodian ruling class. The Saducean priesthood during the first century were not of Aaron but consisted of four families: Boethus, Hanan, Kimchit, and Phiabi.  They intermarried with the Herodians, the Royal Rulers of the State of Israel, who were, themselves Edomites (Idumeans) from the Petra region (or Edom) and descendants of Esau (or Seir, which means "shaggy, he-goat, devil"), thus the "synagogue of Satan" leaders claimed to be Jews but were Edomites appointed by the Herodian rulers under Rome; Herod Antipas, for instance, and Pontius Pilate held the same governmental position for Rome, the reason for much rivalry between them); since Esau was "red and hairy" his nickname was Edom, and he lived in Seir where Ham's descendants settled.  

Galatians 3:[9]  So then, those who are of faith are blessed with the faithful Abraham. [10]  For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who doesn't continue in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them." [11]  Now that no man is justified by the law before God is evident, for, "The righteous will live by faith." [12]  The law is not of faith, but, "The man who does them will live by them." [13]  Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree," [14]  that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. [15]  Brothers, I speak like men. Though it is only a man's covenant, yet when it has been confirmed, no one makes it void, or adds to it. 

That means that if you RESTORE the Levitical instrument players always attached to the curse of the sacrificial system then you have repeated the PATTERNISM for your own time in place: the serpent in Revelation is the OPHIS which id directly connected to the word sOPHISt who with the "fruity" instrument players are called sorcerers by John.

THE CURSE OF THE SHADOW

The Monarchy, sacrificial system and the Levitical musicians who made exorcism noises is called a shadow. At best trying to restore the Levitical Musicians would be to give up the APPLES and as they say just settle for the CORE GOSPEL.  However, shadow does not mean a good type but something evil.

Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers,
he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink,
or in
respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

Col 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ
We get side tracked on the idea of a SHADOW thinking that a shadow is REALLY a two-dimension of the SPIRITUAL law.  In your passage.

G4639 skia skee'-ah Apparently a primary word; “shade” or a shadow (literally or figuratively [darkness of error or an adumbration]):--shadow.

Skia
2. reflection, image (in a bowl of oil), Sch.Il.17.755.
3. shade of one dead, phantom, Od.10.495,  A.Th.992,
of worthless things, that phantom at Delphi, of the Amphictyonic council, D.5.25; hai tou dikaiou s. mere shadows of .
4. evil spirit, Hippiatr.130, PMasp.188.5
also, of one worn to a shadow, A.Eu.302;

Because the Levitical enemies of the Word are closely connected with both Greek and Egyptian "gods" we see the shadow in a Greek resource.

Aeschylus, Eumenides

Chorus No, neither Apollo nor Athena's strength can save you from perishing abandoned, [300] not knowing where joy is in your heart--a bloodless victim of the gods below, a shadow.

You do not answer, but scorn my words, you who are fattened and consecrated to me? Living, you will be my feast, not slain at an altar; [305] now you will hear this hymn, a spell to bind you.

Chorus Come now, let us also join the dance, since we are resolved to display our hated song and to declare our allotted office, how our party directs the affairs of men. [310] We claim to be just and upright. No wrath from us will come stealthily to the one who holds out clean hands, and he will go through life unharmed; [315] but whoever sins, as this man has, and hides his blood-stained hands, as avengers of bloodshed we appear against him to the end, presenting ourselves as upright witnesses for the dead.

THE SERPENT CURSE ON YOU

When Israel fell into musical idolatry, God turned them over to worship the starry host. The First Born sons were replaced by the Levites who would bear the burdens IMPOSED because of that idolatry. 

Ezek 44:10 And the Levites that are gone away far from me,

when Israel went astray, which went astray away from me
after their idols; they shall even bear their iniquity.

Ezek 44:11 Yet they shall be ministers in my sanctuary, having charge at the gates of the house, and ministering to the house: they shall slay the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them to minister unto them.

However, it was because of GOING ASTRAY that sacrifices were imposed and quarantined to just ONE PLACE and this behind walls so that the "people's congregation" could not participate. They, even in the wilderness, did synagogue each REST day as "a school of the Bible."

Ezek 44:12 Because they ministered unto them before their idols,    
        and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity; 
        therefore have I lifted up mine hand against them
        saith the Lord God, and they           shall bear their iniquity.

Ezek 44:13 And they shall NOTcome near unto me,

to do the office of a priest unto me, nor to come near to any of my holy things, in the most holy place: but they shall bear their shame, and their abominations which they have committed.

AND THE END TIME CURSE

Rev 12: 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth [wandering stars] the whole world: he WAS cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

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 [play the flute, pollute, prostitute] out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Eze.28:16

H7404 Rekullah rek-ool-law' Feminine passive participle of H7402 ; trade (as peddled): merchandise, traffic.

Jesus CAST OUT the musical minstrels LIKE DUNG.  "Cast as Profane" is the word h2490 which has the same meaning as the "praise word" used by David which is the root of the word LUCIFER.

Rev. 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

The dragon was a symbol of Babylon

Rev. 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.  
   Rev. 18:14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

Rev. 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
  Rev. 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
   Rev. 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. 

It was the Jews who murdered all of the prophets because they were the voice of the Spirit of Christ.

The Iamblichus There are some, however, who suppose there is likewise, the subject-race of a tricky nature, artful, and assuming all shapes, turning many ways, that personates gods and dŠmons and souls of the dead like actors on the stage; and that through these everything that seems to be good or bad is possible.

They are led to form this judgment because these subject-spirits are not able to contribute anything really beneficial as relates to the soul, nor even to perceive such things; but on the other hand, they ill treat, deride, and often impede those who are returning to virtue.

They are likewise full of conceit, and take delight in vapors and sacrifices.

5. Because the begging priest with open mouth attempts in many ways to raise our expectations. Note 13

13. The agurtes or begging priest generally belonged to the worship of Rhea [ZOE] or Cybele, the Mother. He is frequently depicted in a most unfavorable light. Apuleius speaks of a company of these emasculate priests in the eighth book of the Metamorphoses. They are also described in the Republic of Plato:

"AgurtŠ and Mantics frequent the houses of the rich and persuade them that they possess a power granted by the gods to expiate,

by sacrifices and chants any unjust act that has been committed and that they induce the gods by blandishments and magic rites to help them.

They collected money in this way, and they also followed the selling of nostrums and telling of fortunes."

2 Cor 2:17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

Kapeleuo (g2585) kap-ale-yoo'-o; from kapelos , (a huckster); to retail, i.e. (by impl.) to adulterate (fig.): - corrupt

A. to be a retail-dealer, drive a petty trade... kapŕleu' drive a trade, chaffer with your vegetable food Hdt.1.155

Click to see 2 Chronicles 5 for lots of background to prove that the NEO Restoration movement fits the PATTERNISM of the Mother of Harlots in Revelation 17 who uses the "lusted after fruits" or speakers, singers and instrument players John called Sorcerers (Rev. 18).  By definition Apollo or Abaddon's musical worship team was made up of dirty adulterers.
