The Unforgivable Sin Two

Is Replacing The Word of Christ with "Music" The Unforgivable Sin? It is in the Oldest Traditions That Instruments Came From the Devil. The book of Enoch along with the book of Jubilees and many ancient views of the Jews is that God will come with ten thousand of His saints and the explicit sin is refusing to obey the Word of God and replacing it with mixed-sex choirs and instrumental music to seduce the holy people into the valley of the Cainites.

In part two we showed that the WORDS of Christ are SPIRIT and LIFE. If we reject His words then we blasphmen the Spirit of God.

See Part One

We have not made it clear that we are not condemning music any more than we would condemn eating food. The point of this material is that for those who have known and tasted the Living Word of God through a love for His written word, and then reject it by "taping up the mouth of Jesus" and replacing His Word with our own sentimental "word" we are rejecting the Spirit which Jesus put into His Words (John 6:63). And to substitute the charismatic body exitement created by musical instruments as "worship" for "giving heed" to Christ through His Word is repudiating Christ and His power.

We will see that the instruments--not called music--were used for animal sacrifices for the king, clergy and city officials only at the temple and only at Jerusalem. The sacrifices were most often connected with dedication of kings or to the PURGING or casting out of the influence of Baal worship in the temple.

> Psalm 41 prophesied that Judas would attempt to "triumph over" Jesus where triumph over was the "alarm" which included "playing instruments and 'making a joyful noise before the Lord.'" This was the army's battle cry.

> The Judas bag was "for carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments."

> The Jews 'mocked' Jesus which would have included trying to panic Him with pipes, drums and loud singing.

> The Dead Sea Scroll translation of Psalm shows that Messiah would be attacked as "beliar" which, like Beelzebub, stands for Satan. Therefore, in this prophecy and fulfullment, the musical rejoicing was accusing Jesus with being the Adversary.

> The method was for the Levitical musicians or "panic sounders" to stand in the gap and attack the adversary which, to the Jews, was Jesus and His Word.

> However, when the attack was over, Messiah would make His music with the "fruit of the lips" as His only instruments. This is what Paul defined as the only spiritual sacrifice.

> Modern musicians and self-composed hymns (called idols) have the performers at the focus of worship and dismiss the Words of Christ which Paul defined as the only resource for "singing" or teaching.

> This is the explicitly claim because the Word is not adequate to meet the needs of our culture.

> Furthermore, worship teams begin or end by claiming that they can "lead the worshipers into the presence of God." That is, they claim to be Mediators and thereby repudiate Christ as the One and Only Mediator between man and God. Others explicitly claim that they are the mediators.

> This has the effect, as in many Old Testament examples, of telling Christ: "We do not want to hear from you." This is a claim that He and His words are destructive for our religious systems.

> And this is the unforgivable sin.

The military panic music was to defeat the Gentile enemy which was often identified as the Accuser or Enemy or Beliar or Devil. However, it also proved effective when much of Israel finally slipped into the worship of "the starry host" to which God had abandoned them as a result of the musical idolatry at Mount Sinai.

When the temple, Jerusalem and nation became so polluted with paganism that God would not hear them, the "good kings" rose up and used the music like warriors to cast out the evil spirits of pagan idolatry. During the intertestament period we understand that not only was the temple purged but that pagan "churches" were destroyed and their priests destroyed. First Maccabees. The temple had been destroyed because under Antiochus Epiphanes the Jews wanted a gymnasium build and to worship like the Gentiles.

This casting out of the demons did not happen very often and the temple became a den of thieves and a house of merchandise--just like the end-time Babylon harlot. John calls Jerusalem "Egypt and Sodom."

The Jews could not deny the signs but this Messiah was not the one they wanted to rule over them. He would totally destroy their commercial system.

Therefore, they would accuse Jesus of being the Devil or Beliar and this would permit the military musicians (organized under the king and commanders of the army) to defeat the quiet preaching of Jesus. Their musical triumph-over would make Him into a "stage player" and then defeat Him with literal spears and warrior music.

His singing and dancing while they piped would be the supernatural sign from their "god" that Jesus had been defeated.

Too deep for now but the "serpent" is intimately connected to the Chaldean magicians where "brass" gave them almost supernatural power to enslave mankind by the "magic" of wind, string and percussion instruments. This message is well documented in the documents of the ANE and inherent in the meaning of Hebrew and Chaldee records.

It was a sign of defeat at Sinai, at Jerusalem, In Job 21, Amos 5, 6, 8, Isaiah 5 and Ezekiel 33.

Lucifer came with musical instruments when he fell for trying to "triumph over God" Himself. Ezel 29 He is credited with coming equiped with wind, string and percussion instruments all related to "polluting" or destroying.

It was a sign of the king/queen of Tyre as Lucifer's agent defeating the Jews and others in Isaiah 23.

It went with the king of Babylon as Lucifer's agent in Isa 14

It was prophesied to be used to triumph over Jesus in Psalm 41

It was defined in detail as the Jews would try to defeat Jesus with instruments and identify Him as the Devil.

It was the device of the "women's mourning team" to appeas the Demons. Jesus cast them out more or less violently. Matt 9.

It will be the sign of the end-time Babylon Harlot worship according to Revelation 18.

It comes as no surprise, therefore, that the Devil is the master divider and sower of discord. After sowing discord often by introducing theatrical performance and giving it the name of "Christian" he accuses those who object of being "neurotic, psychotic, demon possessed" and on and on.

scribes scribes

And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub (Baal, Belial, Satan), and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils. Mark 3:22

And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? Mark 3:23

Jesus spoke in parables to keep the Word of Spirit from them (Matthew 13).

Belial means worthless. When you go out to worship a god who is not the True God you are children of Belial (De 13:13). A naughty person who "walks with a froward mouth" is Belial. Belial or Beliar is like Judas as the agent of the devil. He divides houses, sows discord in order to collect the honor for himself or herself. The Judas Bag shows that Judas as Satan's agent "came equipped with a bag for carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments."

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 2 Tim 3:2

And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. Mark 3:24

And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. Mark 3:25

No man can enter into a strong mans house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house. Mark 3:27

Blasphemy means to speak against.

Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: Mark 3: 28

But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: Mark 3: 29

Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit. Mark 3: 30

> Jesus said that His Words were Spirit and Life.

> Paul said that the "Mind of Christ" to us is the Holy Spirit. 1 Cor 2.

> Peter said that the prophets spoke by "The Spirit of Christ." 1 Peter 1:11

> John in Revelation said that the Testimony of Jesus is the Spirit. Rev 19:10

> Therefore, those who reject the Words of Christ as the product of the Spirit of Christ (1 Pe 1:11) blaspheme against the HolyGhost:

For it is impossible for those

who were once enlightened, and
have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were
made partakers of the Holy Ghost, Heb 6:4
And have tasted the good word of God,
and the powers of the world to come, Heb 6: 5

If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. Heb 6: 6

For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: Heb 6: 7

In Isaiah 55 the Word of God is compared to the rain of God.

But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. Heb 6: 8

In Isaiah 5 rejecting the free food from God by making their "religious festivals" into wine and music caused God to take away the "food and drink" so that they hungered and thirsted to death. God sent thorns and the "beasts" to remove their tiny remnant of "food and drink."

The meaning implied is that He was not inspired of God and therefore spoke for Himself. Jesus identified the Devil as a liar for speaking on his own. Therefore, to say that those whom Jesus promised to guide into all truth simply made up their epistles to fit fragmentary records and their own agenda is to accuse them of speaking on their own and therefore a devil.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning,

and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.

When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:

for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44

Isaiah shows the connection between instrumental music at religious festivals, the loss of the Word or Spirit of God and the "without measure" concept:

Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. Isaiah 5: 14

> He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. John 3:33

For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God:
God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. John 3:34

> Jesus answered, "My teaching is not my own. It comes from him who sent me. John 7:16

He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. John 7:18

> And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. John 7:29

But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him. John 7:30

> And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Rev 19:10

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

> Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. John 8:28

> If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36

I know that ye are Abrahams seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word (logos) hath no place in you. John 8:37

The modern musical movement preaches the CORE GOSPEL in which only seven facts ABOUT Jesus are vital. The rest is up for grabs because it is divided apostles teaching different things to divided churches."

Dr. Rubel Shelly promotes the CORE GOSPEL and then says:

"These are the essentials of Christian faith. It is this core message about Jesus that we share in common with other Bible-believing, cross-proclaiming, resurrection-confessing, born-again persons that constitutes us a church.

"Outside the essence of the gospel, there are other features that reflect our history and consensus interpretations of the larger biblical message."

In preaching the parable part of John 6 and not being able to allow Jesus to explain it, Dr. Rubel Shelly equates the "food and drink" to eating Christ as in Catholic theology. Unable to teach the "punch line" the audience was deprived of the truth: the parable meant that we should feed on His Word which is Spirit and Life.

Post modernism says in effect that Jesus didn't really inspired the words of the apostles. Rather, Jesus let them down and didn't establish an earthly kingdom. Belatedly, they decided to try to reconstruct their memory and make it seem that Jesus had not really made such a promise. As a result, they "colored" or sifted the fragmentary memories through Greek philosophy and created their "narrative theology" to fit their own personal agenda.

That said that Christ did not have the Spirit of God.

In another sermon Dr. Rubel Shelly said that we can COLOR the S.U.N. to speak of the S.O.N. Therefore if we can "color" anything the color of Christian or make it "smell" like the Gospel then we can "become as much like the world as possible."

Jesus said that as Spirit He would guide the Apostles into all truth. Jesus of Nazareth appeared to Paul and made the same promise. The Apostles claimed that they were inspired and left a record about how we should behave in the Church.

If this is not true then Jesus was not inspired enough to guarantee that what He wanted said was not delivered. The claim is, however, that "for a price I am hand-picked and trained by the sovereign grace of God and I can tell you the truth." For a price.

The singing out of their own "spirit" and preaching out of their own "spirit" is the defacto proof that they truly deny that Jesus spoke for their God.

This is God's visual aid to a people who have been "turned over" to worship the stars.

Spirit here is not another person but as in the Hebrew it means the mental disposition of the Holy God who is pure Spirit:

Pneuma (g4151) pnyoo'-mah; from 4154; a current of air, i.e. breath (blast) or a breeze; by anal. or fig. a spirit, i.e. (human) the rational soul, (by impl.) vital principle, mental disposition, etc., or (superhuman) an angel, doemon, or (divine) God, Christ's spirit, the Holy Spirit: - ghost, life, spirit (-ual, -ually), mind. Comp. 5590.

The Old Testament speaks of the "spirit" this way:

O Lord, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee: be thou their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble. Isa 33:2

At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered. Isaiah 33:3

And your spoil shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpiller: as the running to and fro of locusts shall he run upon them. Isaiah 33:4

The Lord is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness. Isaiah 33:5

And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure. Isaiah 33:6NIV

This is the Spirit which would rest upon Messiah who was God's ARM sent into the world:

And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; Isaiah 11:2

Rejecting the Spirit as seven "spirits" of knowledge means that there is no fear of God in their lives.

Therefore, to reject the words of God as THE WORD is to reject Christ as God. If you reject that Word then you have committed the unforgivable sin. Paul did that but he was ignorant and therefore was forgiven.

If we confess "our experiences" with what we perceive to be the "spirit" then we are substituting our views for CONFESSING CHRIST.

Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: Luke 12:8

But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. Luke 12:9

And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven. Luke 12:10

If we do not confess what Christ said then we are denying Him as the adequate SPEAKER of His own WORD.

And Paul spoke of those who drink of the Word freely given by God and begins to bear thorns:

For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: Heb 6:7

But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. Heb 6:8

Paul alludes to Isaiah 5 where the people replaced the Word of God with wine, women and song and God "broke down the walls" and let the beasts come in and the briars and thorns.

And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. Isa 5:6

They added wine, harp, viol, tabret and pipe to their religious festivals but they didn't regard the work of the Lord. Therefore, the people hungered and thirsted for the Word but could not find it.

In a physical sense, for almost all of them their musical paganism was the unforgivable sin.

In view of all of this, to deny Christ the Spirit is just as certain and terminal as rejecing the Spirit Words He delivered to us in the Epistles.

But, Jesus does not Judge. And Jesus came to bring Grace. And why do you care if Jesus gives grace (to them "unlimited forgiveness for unlimited sins"). And if Jesus is not going to judge how dare you. We don't and neither did Jesus:

And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. John 12:47

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. John 12:48

Music is both a cause and sign that people have told God: "We won't hear your words just now."

The music of the Old Testament was making-war and burning-animals music. To try it on Christ is an unforgivable sin. The Jews "rose up to play" at Mount Sinai. This was Egyptian musical idolatry. For that, God "turned them over to worship the starry hosts" which in Amos 5 and 6 was Remphan or Chiun. In Jerusalem it was Molech where the music accompanied the burning phase of little babies. All of this idolatry used lots of instrumental music. Israel couldn't do it and get away with it, neither can we.

In the Exodus event God blinded Israel to the Word and Paul in 2 Cor. 3 says that they remained blind until they turned to Christ. In Amos 5, 6, 8 and Isaiah 5 this "took away the knowledge of the Word" so that they were willingly made deaf and blind to God. Willful sin as pre-planned "sowing of discord" to turn church from school to theater is committed with a high hand and there is no redemption. It is exactly the sin of Sinai, Gerezim and Jerusalem and one cannot get by with it. If you want a strong delusion from strong deluders just tell God: we reject all but the CORE GOSPEL to determine faith and practice. He will do it to you jiffy quick. But you will never be able to read the Word for its Spirit value again.

We do not believe that God decides "I will destroy you for violating my commands." Rather, God established the laws which are eternal statements of cause and effect. When you jump off a tall building then it is the will of God that you go patty cake on the sidewalk. Jumping is an unforgivable violation of the law.

The role of music (sumphonia) which is eleminated in the demand to teach is the one act which we do which has a huge historical record of cause and effect.

Speaking the Words of Christ said "I honor the Son Who honored the Father by repeating only What He heard."

"Music" said: "I will not listen to God's Word straight from the source."

Whammo! Israel went blind.

All but a tiny remnant of the Jews refused to listen to the Words of God and the primary weapon for silencing His Voice in their heart was instrumental music as vital to paganism "ecstasy." Nothing so destroys the ability to think rationally than endorphins or "morphine-within" created by complex harmony and instrumental music. Therefore, the planned cause was musical celebration and the predestinated effect is that the people hunger and thirst for the Word and you refuse to let them have it.

When you starve a child they send you to prison or kill you; when you starve children of the Word then God's effect is that you have died spiritually and you are not going to get up.

Hezekiah did that to little Manasseh while he "played on the harp in the temple all day." Hezekiah, too, had a Seeker Center and welcomed the enemy "seeker" into his temple to see his gold and guess what? The enemy wasn't seeking the glory of God but the gold. Sucking Seekers with sexual stimulas through music will always excite and incite the Enemy to take over your new theatrical "venue." And gues What? God doesn't really care.

Manasseh grew up to burn babies in the red hot arms of Molech while the loud instruments played.

Therefore, if Christ has said that as Word or Logos, His Spirit power is in His words and we ignore His words and replace them with any human substitution (philosophical sermons, erotic praise tunes) then the law of predestinated cause and effect will crush us.

What we erroneously call it "music" under the Law of Carnal Ordinances was the WEAPON OF WARFARE. Playing instruments and "making a joyful noise before the Lord" was a war chant. The "praise" of David was to make self vile to panic the enemy. The enemy was always Beliar. Music helped put one's boot on the Gentile's neck.

The Dead Sea Scrolls record the musical war chants calling down God to defeat Beliar.

It was prophesied that the Jews using Judas would try to "triumph over Jesus." This is defined in Psalm 41 as the "Alarm" which is defined by the above war chant.

The Dead Sea Scrolls define this as identical to David's war music.

Furthermore, they "piped" trying to force Jesus into the effeminate, choral dance while singing the laments of defeat. Getting Jesus to take on the role of the effeminate was a way to "neuterize" the defeated enemy if you didn't kill them.

The singing and dancing the David-like dance would be the clear evidence that Jesus had been defeated and that He in fact was not God and His Words were not inspired.

When we fall into singing and dancing (clapping and swaying) we are demonstrating that our rational or spiritual nature has been defeated.

When we ignore the Word or Logos and replace it with "musical performance and making a joyful noise" we tell the world that we are the superior God-ordained people and Jesus the Word is the enemy.

This is one unforgivable sin and the theatrical music is more of a sign of defeat than the cause of defeat.

The israelites rose up to play which defined the Egyptian worship with singing, dancing, instrumental music and going naked like David who is also said to have "played." Nevertheless, they said that they were worshiping the One True God. Their loss was terminal.

The Role of Women in Charismata

Musical "worship" is charismatic worship because the performers have to be somewhat "outside of themselves" to presume to stand up and substitute their "songs" and teaching style for the Words of Christ and His "read the word, have the common decency to sit dow" style.

Musical "worship" is charismatic when anyone "feels" something crawling in their skin and that "lightness of being" feeling. If that feeling persisted it would kill you or institutionalize you because you are rationally immobalized. And that is the predestinated goal of those predestinated to become Lucifer's agents.

"Philo of Alexandria had already emphasized the ethical qualities of music, spurning the 'effeminate' art of his Gentile surroundings. Similarly, early synagogue song intentionally foregoes artistic perfection, renounces the playing of instruments, and attaches itself entirely to 'the word'--the TEXT of the Bible" (Encyclopedia Judaica, 1971 ed., "Music")

Clement of Alexandria on Music: Chapter VIII.-The True Doctrine is to Be Sought in the Prophets.

"It is now time, as we have despatched in order the other points,

to go to the prophetic Scriptures;
for the
oracles present us with the appliances necessary for the attainment of piety,
and so establish the truth.

The divine Scriptures and institutions of wisdom form the short road to salvation.

Devoid of embellishment, of outward beauty of diction, of wordiness and seductiveness, they raise up humanity strangled by wickedness, teaching men to despise the casualties of life; and with one and the same voice remedying many evils, they at once dissuade us from pernicious deceit, and clearly exhort us to the attainment of the salvation set before us.

When one "assembled" with the church or ekklesia, one always "synagogued." That is, the person who assembled came to synagogue. The synagogue was never a pagan or Jewish worship center but it was a school of the Bible even as the church must be the school of Christ and His Spirit Word.

Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things alway in remembrance. 2 Peter 1:15

For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 2 Peter 1:16

For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 2 Peter 1:17

And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. 2 Peter 1:18

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: 2 Pet 1:19

Take heed is the only clear "worship" word: Proserchomai (g4334) pros-er'-khom-ahee; from 4314 and 2064 (includ. its alt.); to approach, i.e. (lit.) come near, visit, or (fig.) worship, assent to: - (as soon as he) come (unto), come thereunto, consent, draw near, go (near, to, unto).

If you "feel it" it is a charismatic climax. This is the stated goal of the Vineyard Praise Cult and the "new style worship" with the new praise song books. You usually feel it when sexual identification allows you to worship the performer. That is why popular musicians either or let themselves be identified as gender-confused: you get both genders that way:.

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

This truly means to be submissive and teachable in the church sense. It outlaws any nonsedentary or performing role which would make her stand between man and God. One cannot look and listen with the lust of the eyes and lust of the ears without being sexually assualted with the "authority sword" which replaces the Sword of the Spirit.

"Usurp authority" is one word by which a woman becomes the spiritual "sword" and does not remain "sedentary."

"Although one finds hints in certain modern lexicons, the erotic sense of authentes is often ignored. The grammarian Phynichus, writing approximately A.D. 180, explained that the word is composed of two parts-autos, "self," and hentos from himi: to "thrust out from oneself" or to "desire." The word should never, he announced, be used to denote tyranny,

but rather murder by one's own hand, as with a sword.
(The sword was considered a
phallic symbol in ancient Greece.) Moeris, also in the second century, advised his students to use another word, autodikein, as it was less coarse than authentein. The Byzantine Thomas Magister reiterates the warning against using this objectionable term. The charred fragments of a scroll excavated from the ruins of Herculaneum demonstrate the use of authentein in a parallel position to "those wounded by the terrible shafts of Eros." The lines were penned by the rhetorician and obscene epigrammatist, Philodemus, who was nicknamed "Lascivus." [Cupid didn't shoot real arrows.) Catherine C. Kroeger.

In the Wisdom of Solomon, the musical failure in the wilderness is discussed.

12:5 - their merciless slaughter of children, and their sacrificial feasting on human flesh and blood. These initiates from the midst of a heathen cult,

Catherinne C. Koreger writes: "authentas goneis, "parents engendering helpless souls, in the midst of a discussion of the abominable fertility and mystery rites of the Canaanites. Although God gave the Canaanites ample opportunity to repent, yet

Thou wert not ignorant that theirs was a wicked conception, their evil inseminated, and that their attitude could never be changed. For it was a cursed seed from the beginning. Catherine C. Kroeger

Wisdom of Solomon 12: 6 - these parents who murder helpless lives, thou didst will to destroy by the hands of our fathers,

Paul in Hebrews will say that after you have received the knowledge of Spirit truth and then try to go back to body-directed ceremonial legalism you have committed the unforgivable sin. Why? Because God gets mad? No. It simply means that God's Spirit Word has the power to form the image and character of Christ in us only if we let His Words stay as He wrote them without trying to make some utilitarian use of them. In the same book of Hebrews, Paul defines the new "sacrifice" as the fruit of the lips. This is intended as a contrast. If you play the animal burning music while dedicating it to Christ you will never get away with it.

Judas would try to triumph according to Psalm 41 with musical instruments and "making a joyful noise before the Lord." This was the Israelite battle cry against Beliar or the enemy. The "Judas Bag" is seen in the sketch below. The spotted thing on the right is the flute case. The box or bag on the side is the BAG mentioned only of Judas. It was "for carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments." It is made up of "speaking in tongues" and "of the world or COSMOS." Satan is the KosmoKraetor or ruler of the Cosmos. The dance and lament they tried to seduce into Jesus is illustrated by this sketch in which up to fifty people joined in the CHOIR OF DANCE. The oxgoad as phallic symbol is also useful for those engaged in the exhilarated worship of the NEW WINESKIN.

"A clown would stroll in with his livid, floured face, seat himself on the railing, and produce from his bulky pocket a flute which he began to play. At once the ringmaster appeared and intimated to him that here one could not play. The clown, unperturbed, stalked over to another place and stated again. But now the ringmaster walked up angrily and snatched his melodious toy from him. The clown gone, and plunging his hand into his fathomless pocket produced another flute and from it another melody. But alas, inexorably, here came the ringmaster again, and from it another melody. But alas, inexorably, here came the ringmaster again, and again despoiled him of his flute. Now the clown's pocket turned into an inexhaustible magic box from which proceeded, one after another, new musical instruments of all kinds, clear and gay or sweet and melancholy. The music over ruled the veto of destiny and filled the entire space, imparting to all of us with its impetuous, invincible bounty a feeling of exultation, as thought a torrent of strange energies had sprung from the dauntless melody the clown blew on his flute as he sat on the railing of the circus.

"Later I thought of this clown of the flute as a grotesque modern form of the great god Pan of the forest whom the Greeks worshipped as the symbol of cosmic vitality--serene, goat-footed Pan who plays the sacred syrinx (pan pipes) in the sinking dusk and with its magic sound evokes an echo in all things: leaves and fountains shiver, the stars begin to tremble, and the shaggy goats dance at the edge of the grove. (qtd. in Kinsley 33, n. 49) Kinsley, David R. The Sword and the Flute: Kali & Krsna: Dark Visions of the Terrible and the Sublime in Hindu Mythology. Berkeley: U of California P, 1975.

See Max Lucado and Cosmic Christmas among the stars.

In the garden of Eden the background of the "serpent" also has him as a composite of a man and a baboon who is closer to being able to articulate words than any "beast." One of the oldest traditions beginning at Babylon and seen throughout documented history in one form or another is that when Satan uses music to tempt people away from the Living Word, they "have fallen and cannot get up." Everyone knows going into music or drama that "it works because we know that it isn't true." It is just children playing musical games. They even piped to try to force Jesus Christ into the effeminate song and dance. Pan's father was Hermes, the father of musical instruments, the twanging bow, of liars and of thieves. Hermes is the Greek version of Lamech who had his origin in Babylon as EA, the patron god of music. Lamech's polygamous marriages gave him the "fathers" of human arts which were used to dominate others. The universal view of music as worship is destructive: you cannot do it to a Holy, Spirit God without trying to scale to the heights and fall to your death.

Dr. Rubel Shelly believes that John's "taking liberties" with the Words let him see the LOGOS in Greek philosophy. In our review we show that the Greek Logos is consistent with the Cosmic Christmas and baptizing the S.U.N. god as the S.O.N. God.

Hermes is also the god of shepherds, land travel, merchants, weights and measures, oratory, literature, athletics and thieves,

and known for his cunning and shrewdness.
He was also a minor
patron of poetry.
He was worshiped throughout Greece especially in Arcadia. Festivals in honor of Hermes were called Hermoea.

Originally Hermes was a phallic god, being attached to fertility and good fortune, and also a patron of roads and boundaries. His name coming from herma, the plural being hermaiherm was a square or rectangular pillar in either stone or bronze, with the head of Hermes (usually with a beard), which adorned the top of the pillar, and male genitals near to the base of the pillar.

The offspring of Hermes are believed to be Pan, Abderus and Hermaphroditus (half man, half woman). Hermes as with the other gods had numerous affairs with goddesses, nymphs and mortals. In some legends even sheep and goats. Pan, the half man half goat, is believed to be the son of Hermes and Dryope,

Pan can make humans, like cattle, stampede in "panic" terror.

Easton's: Hairy one. Mentioned in Greek mythology as a creature composed of a man and a goat, supposed to inhabit wild and desolate regions. The Hebrew word is rendered also "goat" (Leviticus 4:24) and "devil", i.e., an idol in the form of a goat (17:7; 2 Chr. 11:15). When it is said (Isaiah 13:21; comp 34:14) "the satyrs shall dance there," the meaning is that the place referred to shall become a desolate waste. Some render the Hebrew word "baboon," a species of which is found in Babylonia.

They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new (stranger, prostitutes) gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. Deut 32:17

Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee. Deut 32:18

Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, Psalms 106:37

See Adam Clark This defines the Nagash or serpent in the garden of Eden.

Of course, the "children" love the LIGHT and MUSIC show but they are too young to know that their fathers and mothers are deliberately having them burned in the red hot arms of Molect just so the "priest" can get a better message from God out of the music and screams of terror: Molech just loves to eat freshly-cooked babies with "rejoicing before the lord" to the beat of the harp, tambourine, singing and drumming. Paul told the Corinthians not to participate in this worship of demons (bull or goat spirit). He also warned the Romans.

Molech Worship in Jerusalem: Apollo was the more sophisticated fellow who is Apollyon or Abbadon. He did his musical seducing at Delphi, just up the coast from Corinth. He could also "transform himself into an angel of light" and seduced his ministry staff with instrumental music and "blowing the winds of change." As a latter-day disciple, Alexander the Oracle Monger knew that you could sing, play the flute and other instruments (which is the evil form of prophesying) and seduce the "fat heads and simpletons" out of their money.

We know that we had rather get jacked up with music than meet reverently with those "morose people of the first service." That was the accusation made of John the Baptist.

Plato Cratylus Socrates: Then in reference to his ablutions and absolutions, as being the physician who orders them, he may be rightly called Apolouon (purifier); or

in respect of his powers of divination, and his truth and sincerity,
which is the
same as truth, he may be most fitly called Aplos, from aplous (sincere),

as in the Thessalian dialect, for all the Thessalians call him Aplos; also he is Ballon (always shooting), because he is a master archer who never misses; or again, the name may refer to his musical attributes, and then, as in akolouthos, and akoitis, and in many other words the a is supposed to mean "together,"

so the meaning of the name Apollo will be "moving together," whether in the poles of heaven as they are called,

or in the harmony of song, which is termed concord,
he moves all together by an harmonious power, as astronomers and musicians ingeniously declare.

And he is the God who presides over harmony, and makes all things move together, both among Gods and among men. And as in the words akolouthos and akoitis the a is substituted for an o, so the name Apollon is equivalent to omopolon; only the second l is added

in order to avoid the ill-omened sound of destruction (apolon).

Now the suspicion of this destructive power still haunts the minds of some who do not consider the true value of the name, which, as I was saying just now, has reference to all the powers of the God, who is the single one, the everdarting, the purifier, the mover together (aplous, aei Ballon, apolouon, omopolon).

Therefore, knowing what we do when we do it we are willingly deluded by the world's oldest professions: religious musicians and enchanters (prophesiers, witches of Endor) who are advertised to "bring us into the presence of God." You have to be awed by your own talent, drunk without wine and in an abnormal emotional state before you can stand before people and claim to "lead them into worship." Worship is in spirit or mind (nous) which is the new holy place (naos) and musicians who attempt to go there with the honest seeker alone with God has been or will be struck dead spiritually for the presumption of Lucifer personified by the king/queen of Tyre. She/he is called the harp-playing prostitute but his/her music wanted to be "remembered as a male." The king/queen of Babylon rotted on a bed of maggots the everlasting fires and garbage at the once-king's music grove which became the symbol of hell. He/she may be rising again as the king/queen of Babylon who will again be destroyed along with his/her musicians (Rev. 18).

"Awed by the mysteries of his own spirit no less than by those of nature, primitive man was likely to attribute to divine influence

any abnormal emotional state, whether above or below the usual level. Medicine men customarily went into states of trance in which they were believed to be in communication with the gods,

and many tribes supposed lunatics and sexual deviants to be divinely possessed.

In most early societies, moreover, men evolved techniques for deliberaly inducing the abnormal forms of consciousness in which they supposed themselves to achieve union with divine power, sometimes by the use of drugs and other physiological stimuli, sometimes by hypnotic dances and music. (Parkes, H. Bamford, Of Gods and Men, p. 32-33).

The entire record is that when we do it we are not going to retreat any more than a morphine addict willingly hooked is going to ever be free again in his life.

Because "music" is based on the unlearned assumption that the Jews worshiped by instrumental music then to deliberately restore the musical part makes one guilty of violating the whole sacrificial type. He would say that this is an unforgivable sin.

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 2 Thess 2:8

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 2 Thess 2: 9

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 2 Thess 2: 10

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion (Plane or wandering star or traveling tramps), that they should believe a lie: 2 Thess 2: 11

Woe unto them for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. Jude 1:11

Book Book

Jude quotes The Book of Enoch which defines the fallen angels or wandering stars. In the Book of Jubilees and other ancient documents the cardinal sin was Satan's teaching the youth how to organize mixed-sex choirs, play instrumental music and this led to sexual perversion.

And remember that as a result of the musical idolatry at Mount Sinai and throughout Israel's history, God "turned them over to worship the starry host."

God came with "ten thousand of His Host" to Mt Sinai and will come again to execute judgment. The first sin in these documents is using instrumental music to gain praise from God and take away the Word.

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thess 2: 12

Peter says that by worshiping by "giving heed" to the Words of God, the Daystar rises in our hearts. It may not tickle our sex nerve endings but the effect is in the spirit nature.

It is a terrible thing to be blinded and made deaf by God. This happened in Isaiah 6 and 29.

And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Isaiah 6:9

Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. Isaiah 6: 10

Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, Isaiah 6: 11

And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. Isaiah 6: 12

This is a description much like the condition of the earth when God began to create. Jeremiah 4 uses language quite identical to the original "creation" to describe the fallen nature of Israel.

In Isaiah 29:

WOE to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices. Isaiah 29:1

Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel. Isaiah 29: 2

And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee. Isaiah 29: 3

Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. Isaiah 29: 9

For the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. Isaiah 29: 10

And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: Isaiah 29: 11

Jesus quoted from Isaiah and Ezekiel 33 to describe the Jews of the first century who were more involved with mouth religion and ceremonial than with the Word of God:

And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. Isaiah 29:12

Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Isaiah 29:13

Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. Isaiah 29:14

Ezekiel put it this way:

Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord. Ezekiel 33:30

And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. Ezekiel 33:31 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not. Ezekiel 33:32

And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them. Ezekiel 33:33

Therefore, when Christ came the eyes and ears were still sealed because they were still trying to find God with rituals and inventing their own words. Jesus identifies this as lying and of the Devil:

The CORE GOSPEL presumes to be able to discount the "doctrine" taught by Christ through the Apostles and through religious ceremonialism empowered by modern music "ascend up to God" and get their own personal message.

However, God came in the form of a humble servant to speak Spirit Words in quiet places. The sheep of Christ would be able to hear His voice because they did not trust their own talents to either understand the Mind or Spirit of God or to raise their own bodies.

The Word as Test of Sonship

Jesus as man set the example of refusing to do or speak anything which He had not received from the Father. He said that "flesh counts for nothing" but that His Words were Spirit and Life:

Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. John 8:28

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36

I know that ye are Abrahams seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word (logos) hath no place in you. John 8:37

See John Chrysostom------John Chrysostom "God" Named by His Work.

The Book of Jubilees, Chapter One reads:

And the Lord said unto Moses: 'I know their contrariness and their thoughts and their stiffneckedness, and they will not be obedient till they confess

Jubilees 1:23 their own sin and the sin of their fathers. And after this they will turn to Me in all uprightness and with all (their) heart and with all (their) soul,

and I will circumcise the foreskin of their heart and the foreskin of the heart of their seed,

and I will create in them a holy spirit,

and I will cleanse them so that they shall not turn away from Me from that day unto eternity.

Jubilees 1: 24 And their souls will cleave to Me and to all My commandments, and they will fulfil My

Jubilees 1: 25 commandments, and I will be their Father and they shall be My children.

And they all shall be called children of the living God, and every angel and every spirit shall know, yea, they shall know that these are My children, and that I am their Father in uprightness and righteousness, and that

Jubilees 1: 26 I love them. And do thou write down for thyself all these words which I declare unto thee on this mountain, the first and the last, which shall come to pass in all the divisions of the days in the law and in the testimony and in the weeks and the jubilees unto eternity, until I descend and dwell

Jubilees 1: 27 with them throughout eternity.'

By definition, a "Christian" is one who speaks only what he has heard from Jesus Christ through inspiration. If one "makes up their own songs and sermons" they are "speaking on their own" and this is how Jesus defines the Devil.

The majority of mankind has always tried to manufacture power devices: the sword, smelting, musical instruments, tricks of soothsaying, to claim and sell a message from God. The Jewish leaders were such men.

Jesus said that they made long prayers and made up their own replacement for God's Word and did it to "steal the houses of widows." This self-speak is defined by Jesus as LYING and makes one a "son" of the Devil.

I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. John 8:38

They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abrahams children, ye would do the works of Abraham. John 8:39

The Word as Test for the Devil

But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. John 8:40

Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. John 8:41

Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. John 8:42

The Word as Test for Satan

Satanas (g4567) sat-an-as'; of Chald. or. corresp. to 4566 (with the def. affix); the accuser, i.e. the devil: - Satan.

Echidna (g2191) ekh'-id-nah; of uncert. or.; an adder or other poisonous snake (lit. or fig.):- viper.

Echthros (g2190) ekh-thros'; from a prim. echtho , (to hate); hateful (pass. odious, or act. hostile); usually as a noun, an adversary (espec. Satan):- enemy, foe

Jesus refused to speak to the "multitudes" except in parables. This was to keep the "serpent disciples" from understanding His message for defeating them.

And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately,

and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts. Mk.4:15

Anyone who takes the word out of the heart of people is a Satan.

When people make fun of speaking or "singing" the Word of Christ or of teaching it "as it has been taught to you" it is likely that they have been exposed to the Word enough to know its spiritual power but lament that it does not have the carnal power to attract the masses. Therefore, they speak the words out of their own spirit, become liars and Jesus says, sons of the Devil. Paul to the Hebrews makes them fallen and unable to return to God. Nevertheless, like the Pharisees they do not ever give up their position.

Therefore, their "gospel" will be the gospel of Satan.

The Jewish clergy and most of their blind followers found themselves in that lost condition when Jesus came. They rejected His Word and were offended that they were about to lose their place and their position just like the silversmiths.

Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. John 8:43
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44
And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. John 8:45

> Lust means an intense craving for that which is forbidden. Therefore, the universal view of the church has been that Paul imitated Christ and taught that "teaching" the inspired Word meant preaching it one to another.

The world is filled with preachers who lust to "do that which is unlawful" according to the written Word by declaring that God makes no commands, nor examples nor can we infer anything from anything which we read. Therefore, to lust after ways which "sow discord" and has no Biblical authority defines one as a "Devil." And for that, God will send them strong delusions that they CAN NEVER AGAIN hear the Word.

> That to the lawless becomes "legalism." And children hate authority with a purple passion.

> Therefore, they declare THERE IS NO LAW and we can add the "lust of the eye, the lust of the ear, the lust of the flesh through Sister Singers and strange Brother Singers."

> Why? Because they CANNOT hear the Word of Christ or of Paul and they do not want you to hear Christ.

> Because their father is the devil, and speaking HIS OWN WORDS made him a liar, they make new laws and speak out of their own twisted minds from which the Spirit of Christ has been swept out.

If your Father is the "Son's" Father then you will be able to hear His words hidden in parables for the liars, and sons of Satan.

Here is the explicit PATTERNISM of Jesus Christ:

For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. John 12:49

And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. John 12:50

And earlier, He said:

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

Zoopoieo (g2227) dzo-op-oy-eh'-o; from the same as 2226 and 4160; to (re-) vitalize (lit. or fig.): - make alive, give life, quicken.

There is no physical effort you can perform to create life. The ZOE principle claims to teach teams how to lead the worship through music, drama and dance. These are all "the works of human hands." [Most instruments require the use of both hands] They are all directed to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, the lust of the ear and the vain glory of watching.

However, as the true "worship" word under the Law and under Christ is "to seek God through His Word." Of "give attendance to the public reading of the Word and to doctrine." God often warned Israel that they should "seek" Him through His Word. However, those who "sang idle songs and improvized on the harp like David" told God: "Go away, we will not hear your Word. The WORD judged them in the sense that it could bring life but they starved to death.

They were not just insincere: they were according to Jesus, liars and children of the Devil. They actually worshipped the Devil as Remphan or Chiun.

The Word as power to judge:

When Jesus spoke the eternal Word to the masses they did not have the key to understand it. Therefore, the spoken words of God Incarnate passed judgment and they were lost:

Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. John 8:43

And if any man hear my words:, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. John 12:47

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. John 12:48

"But," you insist, "Jesus does not Judge us: He came to save us"!

And if any man hear my words:, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. John 12:47

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. John 12:48

Paul insists in the "singing" passages that we teach the Word of God for two reasons: first, it is inspired by God. Second, if we do not teach the Word "as it has been taught" then the evil false teachers will gain an entrance.

Therefore, to reject the WORDS of Christ is fatal because, and we quote again:

For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. John 12:49

And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. John 12:50

The Word as power to give Life:

But if the Spirit of (mental attitude) 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. Rom 8:11

The Word as power to Sanctify:

Sanctify (Make Holy) them through thy truth: thy word is truth. John 17:17

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

Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament (will); not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. 2 Co. 3:6

The person whose will is put into effect is dead. His letter is a letter from the dead. However, the spirit of the person while still living was the power to dispose of their property. Therefore, we are not to honor a dead letter but the Spirit of the person.

In this case, the Law of Moses was given "because of transgression." That transgression was the result of rejecting the living Book of the Covenant to return to musical idolatry. The "spirit" of the oral covenant made to Abraham was set aside and they lived under a covenant of death after God "turned them over to worship the starry host."

But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: 2 Cor 3:7

How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? 2 Cor 3:8

The death was the inability to read the Word of God:

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

But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. 2 Cor 3:15

Nevertheless, when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. 2 Cor 3:16

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Cor 3:17

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Cor 3:18

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: 2 Pe.1:19

The Word as Test of Friendship with God:

Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth:

but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. John 15:15

It is clear that one who refused to make known the words the Father revealed to the Son or the Lord to His friends, does not have the Spirit of Christ or the Spirit of Sonship..

The Word to Test End-time self-speakers:

There were true prophets and charismatic, pagan prophesiers. This word in the pagan sense is usually playing instruments, singing, getting people into the dizzying dance, speaking gibberish and selling it to the "fat heads and simpletons." The Britannica notes what the common people understood in Corinth:

"The nature of prophecy is twofold: either inspired (by visions or revelatory auditions), or acquired (by learning certain techniques). In many cases both aspects are present.

The goal of learning certain prophetic techniques is to reach an ecstatic state in which revelations can be received. That state might be reached through the use of music, dancing, drums, violent bodily movement, and self-laceration.

The ecstatic prophet is regarded as being filled with the divine spirit, and in this state the deity speaks through him.

Ecstatic oracles, therefore, are generally delivered by the prophet in the first-person singular pronoun and are spoken in a short, rhythmic style.

Therefore, Jesus warned that:

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? Matt 7:22

And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matt 7:23

Of course the power is in God. However, as the visible, fleshly Word was God's agent of power, the WORDS of that WORD has whatever power God put into it.

This is why "speaking the words as they have been spoken" may not satisfy the carnal mind in, like the Devil, making up his own pattern or paradigm.

However. we repeat that as Peter understood the written Word:

Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things alway in remembrance. 2 Peter 1:15

For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 2 Peter 1: 16

For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 2 Peter 1: 17

And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. 2 Peter 1: 18

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: 2 Peter 1: 19

Take heed is the key "worship" word in the New Testament: Proserchomai (g4334) pros-er'-khom-ahee; from 4314 and 2064 (includ. its alt.); to approach, i.e. (lit.) come near, visit, or (fig.) worship, assent to: - (as soon as he) come (unto), come thereunto, consent, draw near, go (near, to, unto).

Men can teach but men cannot expound or solve further the Word of God:

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 2 Peter 1: 20

Epilusis (g1995) ep-il'-oo-sis; from 1956; explanation, i.e. application: - interpretation

Epiluo (g1956) ep-ee-loo'-o; from 1909 and 3089; to solve further, i.e. (fig.) to explain, decide: - determine, expound.

But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples. Mk.4:34

Why has God taken careless sermonizing and all "versifying" out of the process. Why? If men can "further explain" the words of God then why didn't God let men make up their own:

For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1: 21

> Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 1 Peter 1:11

> And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Revelation 19:10

> Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Cor 3:17

Musical praise and dance teams claim "we are priests." "We are mediators between man and God." Since the pulpit area is typified in architecture as the "holy place" these presumptuous people are "standing in the holy place claiming 'I am God.'"

Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. John 8:43

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.

He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth,

because there is no truth in him.

When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:

for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44

Judas and the Priests would try to Triumph Over Jesus but fail in the end

Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. Psalm 41:9

But thou, O Lord, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them. Psalm 41:10

By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me. Psa 41:11

TRIUMPH IS: Ruwa (h7321) roo-ah'; a prim. root; to mar (espec. by breaking); fig. to split the ears (with sound), i. e. shout for alarm or joy: - blow an alarm, cry (alarm, aloud, out), destroy, make a joyful noise, smart, shout (for joy), sound an alarm, triumph.

Dead Sea Scrolls: This was the battley cry of the army but God said don't do it when the congregation is called together which was only for instruction (Numbers 10:7)

All who have eaten my bread
have lifted their heel against me (cf John 13:18)
And all those joined to my Council
have mocked me with wicked lips. (Children piping and chiding.)
They have overtaken me in a narrow pass (gap) without escape
And there is no rest for me in my trial.
They sound my censure upon a harp
and their murmuring and storming upon a zither." Ps.41:11

The Catholic Encyclopedia defines the liturgical singers as "Levitical Musicians." Therefore, it was the "musicians" who banded together to try to panic Jesus into the effeminate Dionysus "surrender" song and choral dance.

When we see musicians today as a "team" they are "standing in the holy place" or "liturgy area" and some claim that "we are the mediators" (Christs).

DSS. When the priests go out into the gap between the battle lines,

seven Levites shall go out with them.
In their hands shall be seven trumpets of rams' horns.
Three officers from among the Levites
shall walk before the priests and the Levites.

The Jews saw Jesus as Beelzebub or Beliar. See how this identified Him as Satan or Tammuz whom the Jewish women worshiped musically in the Jerusalem temple. Tammuz was worshiped musically here. Inanna went through the seven gates to hell to find Tammuz so that he could return and restore fertility. Inana's descent to the nether world J.A. Black etal. Inanna Descent Wolkstein - Kramer

Therefore, their musical attack included not only musical instruments and "sounding" but also flying banners so popular in charismatic churches:

DSS. Then the priests shall blow on the trumpets of the slain [and the Levites and the al] the people with rams' horns shall sound a signal for battle. The infantry shall attack the army of the Kittim, [and as the soun]d [of the si]gnal [goes forth],

they shall begin to bring down their slain. Then all the people shall still the sound of the signal,

while the priests continuously blow on [the trumpets of the slain], and the bat[tl]e p[revail]s against the K[ittim, and the troops of Belia]l are defeated before them. Thus in the th[ird] lot [ . . . ] to fall slain [ .. ]

On the banner of the tho[us]and they shall write, "The Anger of God is loosed against Belial and all the men of his forces without remnant,"

On the banner of the tho[us]and they shall write, "The Anger of God is loosed against Belial and all the men of his forces without remnant,"

Here is the result of trying to triumph over Christ by triumphing over His Words with Instruments

My strength has gone from my body
and my heart runs out like water;
my flesh is dissolved (melted) like wax
and the strength of my loins is turned to fear.
DSS. Then the priests shall blow on the six trumpets of the slain
a sharp staccato note to direct the battle,
and the Levites and all the people with rams' horns
shall blow a great battle alarm together
in order to melt the heart of the enemy.
My arm is torn from its socket
and I can lift my hand no more;
My foot is held by fetters
and my knees slide like water;
I can no longer walk.
I cannot step forward lightly,
For my legs and arms are bound by shackles
which cause me to stumble.
The tongue is gone back which Thou didst make
marvelously mighty within my mouth;
it can no longer give voice.
I have no word for my disciples
to revive the spirit of those who stumble
and to speak words of support to the weary.
My circumcised lips are dumb.
DSS. He has called those who stumble unto wondrous [accomplishment]s, and

He has gathered a congregation of nations for annihilation without remnant in order to raise up in judgment

he whose heart has melted, to open a mouth for the dumb to sing [God's] mighty deeds, and to teach feeble [hands] warfare. He gives those whose knees shake strength to stand,

He is what the dumbed-lips of Jesus totally abrogated with His Own blood.

And they brought forth the he goats for the sin offering before the king and the congregation (representatives only); and they laid their hands upon them: 2 Chronicles 29:23

And the priests killed them, and they made reconciliation with their blood upon the altar, [This says: "This goat is dying for the sins of all Israel]

to make an atonement for all Israel:

for the king commanded that the burnt offering and the sin offering should be made for all Israel. 2 Chronicles 29:24

What: And he set the Levites in the house of the Lord with cymbals, with psalteries, and with harps,

Authority: according to the commandment of David, and of Gad the kings seer,

What: and Nathan the prophet:

Authority: for so was the commandment of the Lord by his prophets. 2 Chronicles 29:25

In Contrast to the Carnal David and Judaism which put its boot on the necks of the Gentiles, in victory, Jesus would "sing to the Gentiles." David shed the blood OF the Gentiles using instruments; Christ shed His blood FOR the Gentiles. Of Messiah:

I will groan with the zither of lamentation
in all grief-stricken mourning and bitter complaint
until iniquity and wickedness are consumed
and the disease-bringing scourge is no more.
Then will I play on the zither of deliverance
and harp of joy,
on the tabors of prayer and the pipe of praise
without end.
And at the beginning of their weeks
for the season of Jubilee.
All my life the engraved Precept shall be on my tongue
as the fruit of praise
and the portion of my lips.
I will sing with knowledge and all my music
shall be for the glory of God.
(My) lyre (and) my harp shall sound
for His holy order
and I will tune the pipe of my lips
to His right measure.

Paul would refuse to speak or teach unless it involved revelation, knowledge, prophesying or doctrine.

All of these are teaching in the vocal, external sense. And rather than use the instruments of pagan witchcraft (1 Cor 13:1) or the instruments of carnal warfare (1 Cor 14:7-8), Paul said what he would do "in church."

What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also:
........... I will sing with the spirit, and
........... I will sing with the understanding also. 1 Cor 14:15

Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,

singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Eph 5:19

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,

singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Col 3:16

Here is what God wants to to do while offering spiritual sacrifices.

Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines: For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. Heb 13:9

We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle. Heb 13: 10

For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp. Heb 13: 11

Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Heb 13: 12

Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. Heb 13: 13

By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to his name. Heb 13: 15

But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Heb 13: 16

From Psalm 41 we understand that Jesus would be momentarily overcome with the mocking of the Jews. This was piping and trying to get Jesus to turn effeminate by dancing and crying out with the lament of the defeated. The Dead Sea Scrolls hymns of translates Psalm 41 as a military defeat with instrumental music and making a joyful noixe to the Lord.

> The final proof of their victory was to see Jesus slaughtered and His body taken "outside the camp." This was the musical defeat of Beliar in the War Scrolls of the DSS.

> In victory, Christ arose and offered the fruit of the lips. Contrary to the carnal David, He offered the fruit of the lips. This would have been in reciting Psalms.

> If we go back beyond the cross and get the "triumph over" music or rather "noise" then we don't have the spiritual sight to see that we are still trying to musically triumph over the Spirit of Jesus bestowed only by giving heed (a worship word) to His Words.

> This is the unforgivable sin.

The "unforgivable sin" is appealing to the Sacrificial System for anything. "Musical praise" has only the Monarchy Period when the instruments made a great crashing sound during the burning phase.

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, Heb 6:4 (The Living Word in Written Word)

And have tasted (lived or experienced) the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, Heb 6:5

If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. Heb 6:6

Here is how to detect the UNFORGIVABLE SIN.

We put Jesus to an open shame when we PUT HIM ON DISPLAY THEATRICALLY. The cross as an idol of beauty is putting Christ on display. To presume to, according to the Willow Creek pattern, put the singers and musicians on display as "images" of what Christ wants to be is to put Christ to an open shame. To claim the power to lead the worshipers into the presence of God is to "stand in the holy place" claiming the place of Jesus christ as the One and Only Mediator.

Dostoyevsky assures us while the clergy with their musical ceremonies are trying to bring Christ to an open shame by bring Him onto the state, the True Jesus will be

"It was customary in, poetry to bring down heavenly powers on earth. Not to speak of Dante, in France, clerks, as well as

The monks in the monasteries, used to give regular performances in which the Madonna, the saints; the angels, Christ, and God Himself were brought on the stage. (Musical Praise Teams or Musical Worship Teams still believe that this is possible.)

In those days it was done in all simplicity. In Victor Hugo's 'Notre Dame de Paris' an edifying and gratuitous spectacle was provided for the people in the Hotel de Ville of Paris in the reign of Louis XI. in honour of the birth of the dauphin.

"Similar plays, chiefly from the Old Testament, were occasionally performed in Moscow too, up to the times of Peter the Great. But besides plays there were all sorts of legends and ballads scattered about the world,

in which the saints and angels and all the powers of Heaven took part when required, our monasteries the monks busied themselves in translating, copying, and even composing such poems and even under the Tatars. The Grand Inquisitor

God is totally invisible and totally silent. He speaks through His created work but he is not worshiped as the creature. Only Christ the Word has the ability to make God visible and audible. That happens only in the spirit or mind. This is why the new "holy place" is the human heart finding God in the "prayer closet" totally quiet and totally alone. If you try to force your way into God's presence with your physical body exercising human talent you will be as spiritually dead as if you as a Levite had tried to lead the worshipers into the Most Holy place with flutes and harps and singing.

John Chrysostom Homily Homily XXXI.

3. "And when He came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise, He saith unto them, Give place, for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed Him to scorn." [ Matt. ix. 23, 24. [R. V., "the flute-players, and the crowds making a tumult."]

Noble tokens, surely, these, of the rulers of synagogues; in the moment of her death pipes and cymbals raising a dirge! What then doth Christ?

All the rest He cast out, but the parents He brought in;

to leave no room for saying that He healed her in any other way.

And before her resurrection too, He raises her in His word; saying, "The maid is not dead, but sleepeth." And in many instances besides He doeth this. As then on the sea He expels tumult from the mind of the by-standers, at the same time both signifying that it is easy for Him to raise the dead (which same thing He did with respect to Lazarus also, saying, "Our friend Lazarus sleepeth [ John ii. 11] ;" and also teaching us not to fear death; for that it is not death, but is henceforth become a sleep. Thus, since He Himself was to die, He doth in the persons of others prepare His disciples beforehand to be of good courage, and to bear the end meekly. Since in truth, when He had come, death was from that time forward a sleep.

But yet they laughed Him to scorn: He however was not indignant at being disbelieved by those for whom He was a little afterwards to work miracles;

neither did He rebuke their laughter, in order that both it and the pipes, and the cymbals, and all the other things,

might be a sure proof of her death.

For since for the most raft, after the miracles are done, men disbelieve, He takes them beforehand by their own answers; which was done in. the case both of Lazarus and of Moses. For to Moses first He saith, "What is that in thine hand?" [ Ex. iv. 2. ] in order that when he saw it become a serpent, He should not forget that it was a rod before, but being reminded of his own saying, might be amazed at what was done. And with regard to Lazarus He saith, "Where have ye laid him?" [ John xi. 34, 39.] that they who had said,

"Come and see," and "he stinketh, for he hath been dead four days," might no longer be able to disbelieve His having raised a dead man.

Seeing then the cymbals and the multitude, He put them all out, and in the presence of the parents works the miracle;

not introducing another soul, but recalling the same that had gone out, and awakening her as it were out of a sleep.

Because trying to get Jesus to sing and dance and "image" Himself as feminine or effeminate was the first such putting Christ to an open shame, to immitate it in public worship is acting on behalf of the clergy and putting Christ to an open shame. Shame is:

Paradeigmatizo (g3856) par-ad-igue-mat-id'-zo; from 3844 and 1165; to show alongside (the public), i.e. expose to infamy;- make a public example, put to an open shame.

Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. Matt 1:19

Deigmatizo (g1165) digh-mat-id'-zo; from 1164; to exhibit: - make a shew.

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

The Dionysus figure always existed in Egypt and was the model of the "rising up to play" in musical idolatry worshiping Dionysus or Bacchus as the "god of wine" and of course, the "god of new wineskins."

At Mount Sinai God offered Israel the oral Covenant and they pledged themselves to it. However, they could not bear to Hear God confront them with a voice. Therefore, they told Moses that they couldn't stand any more WORDS from God.

As a result, they put themselves and their golden calf on display as a principality and power more suitable to them than God. Nevertheless, they claimed that their singing, dancing, wine and instruments was DEDICATED to the name of God.

While they BELIEVED that they were worshiping a Spirit God with their carnal senses, God was TRIUMPHING OVER them. Because they sang and played Jesus to His death, He did not remain dead because in Spirit He never died. His resurrection totally "turned them over to worship the starry hosts" just as He had at Mount Sinai.

The sign of Spirit or Word triumphing over self-proclaimed singers, dancers, musicians and actors is the VERY THEATRICAL SHOW they claim is in the honor of Christ, performed by Christ's surrogates:

Thriambeuo (g2358) three-am-byoo'-o; from a prol. comp. of the base of 2360 and a der. of 680 (mean. a noisy iambus, sung in honor of Bacchus); to make an acclamatory procession, i.e. (fig.) to conquer or (by Hebr.) to give victory: - (cause) to triumph (over).

This is the sign of a people being defeated (Jews, Egyptians, Assyrians)

Now then sit down and write these words on a tablet, and in a book, for these things shall be for many long day, and even for ever. Isaiah 30:8 LXX

For the people is dlsobedient, false children who would not hear the law of God: Isaiah 30:9 LXX

who say to the prophets Report not to us; and to them that see vislons, Speak them not to us, but speak and report to us another error, Isaiah 14:10 LXX

and turn us aside from this way, remove from us this path, and remove from us the oracle of lsrael. Isaiah 30:11 LXX

And the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be seven fold in the day when the Lord shall heal the breach of his people, and shall heal the pain of thy wound. Isaiah 30:26 LXX

Behold, the name of the Lord comes after a long time, burning wrath; the word of his lips is with glory, a word full of anger, and the anger of his wrath shall devour as fire. Isaiah 30:27 LXX

And his breath, as rushing water in a valley, reach reach as far as the neck, and be divided, to confound the nations for their vain error; error also shall pursue them and overtake them. Isaiah 30:28 LXX

Must ye always rejoice, and go into my holy places continually, as they that keep a feast? and must ye go with a pipe, as those that rejoice into the mountain of the Lord, to the God of Israel Isaiah 30:29 LXX

and the Lord shall make his glorious voice to be heard and the wrath of his arm, to make a display with wrath and anger and devouring flame: he shall lighten terribly, and his wrath shall be as water and violent hail. Isaiah 30:30 LXX

For by the voice of the Lord the Assyrians shall be overcome, even by the stroke where with he shall smite them. Isaiah 30:31 LXX

And it shall happen to him from every side, that they from whom their hope of assistance was, in which he trusted, themselves shall war against him in turn with drums and with harp. Isaiah 30:32 LXX

And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the Lord shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps:and in battles of shaking will he fight with it. Isaiah 30:32KJV

When you pull off the head of a chicken it continues to dance, but it is the dance of death. If you are engaged in replacing the WORD of Christ you are trying to triumph over Him. However, even as at Sinai, your musical performance is God triumphing over you. The carnally-pleasing spectacle is your dance of death and, according to all of the Biblical examples, you will never have a "head" to discern the quiet, whispered voice of God again. Again Dostoyevsky notes of Christ:

He is weak and vile. What though he is everywhere now rebelling against our power, and proud of his rebellion?

It is the pride of a child and a schoolboy. They are little children rioting and barring out the teacher at school. But their childish delight will end; it will cost them dear.

They will cast down temples and drench the earth with blood. But they will see at last, the foolish children,

that, though they are rebels, they are impotent rebels, unable to keep up their own rebellion.

Bathed in their foolish tears, they recognise at last that

He who created them rebels must have meant to mock at them...

They will marvel at us and will be awe stricken before us, and

will be proud at our being so powerful and clever, that we have been able to subdue such a turbulent flock of thousands of millions.

They will tremble impotently before our wrath, their minds will grow fearful,

they will be quick to shed tears like women and children,

but they will be just as ready at a sign from us to pass to laughter and rejoicing, to happy mirth and childish song.

Yes, we shall set them to work, but in their leisure hours we shall make their life like a child's game, with children's songs and innocent dance.

The Response of Jesus the Prisoner to the Inquisition

"I meant to end it like this. When the Inquisitor ceased speaking he waited some time for his Prisoner to answer him. His silence weighed down upon him. He saw that the Prisoner had listened intently all the time, looking gently in his face and evidently not 'wishing to reply.

The old man longed for Him to say something, however bitter and terrible. But He suddenly approached the old man in silence and softly kissed him on his bloodless aged lips. That was all his answer.

The old man shuddered. His lips moved. He went to the door, opened it, and said to Him: 'Go, and come no more. . . . come not at all, never, never!' And he let Him out into the dark alleys of the town. The Prisoner went away." "And the old man?" "The kiss glows in his heart, but the old man adheres to his idea." The Grand Inquisiton

Why is this so dangerous? It is dangerous because when you reject the Word you reject the Spirit and you deny that God has the power to speak to the "congregation." You must make it entertaining to make it more powerful as in the "praise craze." The CORE GOSPEL sounds so profound but it is an attempt to triumph over His Words. While the spectacle seems theatrical, it is the dance of death. Unfortunately, the blind who follow the blind have no excuse.

By this you deny that God is the ultimate Word or Speaker and you "stand in the holy place claiming that you are God."

Here is how Paul fulfilled the "pattern" of Christ and how he commanded that others offer the fruit of the lips and make melody in the heart rather than restore beyond-redemption Judaism or paganism:

Pauls Commission

Colossian's Commission

Ephesian's Commission

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


And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. Col.2:19

When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Col.3:4

From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. Eph 4:16
For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; Col 1:19

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Col.1:12

IF ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Col 3:1

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Col 3:2

for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said:

Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word (Logos) of God; Col 1:25

And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Col 3:10

"Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." Eph 5:14
Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generation,

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body (church)

Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, Eph 5:15
but is now disclosed to the saints. Col 1: 26

Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free:

Wherefore be ye not unwise, but

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles Col 1:27

but Christ is all, and in all. Col 3:11

understanding what the will of the Lord is. Eph 5:17

To present to you the word of God in its fullness Col 1:25

Let the word of Christ dwell

be filled with the Spirit Eph 5:18

We proclaim him,

admonishing and teaching

so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. Col 1: 28

as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs

To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me. Col 1:29

giving thanks to God the Father through him. Col 3:17

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Eph 5:20

Singing To the Gentiles

Paul warned about the Roman pagan background in romans chapter 14. In chapter 15 he showed how one can imitate how Christ honored the Father by speaking only what He heard. And how Paul fulfilled this pattern to all of the churches. Many of the Roman believers were Jews. Paul warned them in chapters 9-11 that the Law did not ordain that they were predestinated to salvation. And he warned in chapter 10 against the musical idolatry which lost Israel the Covenant at Mount Sinai.

In chapter 14 the Orphic background was musical and vegetarian. The Dionysic background was musical, meat-eating and wine-drinking.

For the assembly or meal fellowships Paul laid down the "pattern" that if they just read or sang the revealed Words of Christ they could teach one another. The rest would take care of itself as each member allowed the Spirit of Christ do work on each individual heart.

If they continued their musical practices or other problems in the assembly unity would be destroyed.

Paul cycled through the remedy for "diversity" twice:

Cycle One

Cycle Two

WE then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Rom 15:1

Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification [education]. Rom 15: 2

For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me. Rom 15: 3

And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people. Rom 15: 10

And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people. Rom 15: 11

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning (teaching), that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4

And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust. Romans 15:12

Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: Romans 15:5

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:13

That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify (tell of His works) God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:6

And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another. Romans 15:14

Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister (deacon) of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: Romans 15:8

Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God. Romans 15:15

And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will

(2) that the offering (bloodless sacrifice) up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:16

(1) confess to thee among the Gentiles, and

(1) That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God,

(2) sing unto thy name. Romans 15:9

ministering the gospel of God,

I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God. Rom 15:17

For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed. Rom 15:18

If you are a "musical attack agent" making war against Lord Jesus Christ and His Word you are violating the pattern of Jesus, the command of Jesus, the pattern of Paul and many commands about how the new "sacrifice" is with the fruit of the lips.

Restoring "music" (never called music) using the Old Testament Patternism is to restore the LOUD NOISE which prevented the priests from hearing the horrible noises associated with slaughtering, splashing blood and burning thousands of animals to pay for their sins.

If you are still singing, dancing and playing you have not yet entered into the Rest Christ died to give: freedom from "spiritual anxiety created by religious rituals." And yes, music works because it creates spiritual anxiety and displays to the watching world a people who have never had or have lost beyond redemption the meaning of the Spirit or Mental Disposition, the Mind of Christ.

So, if you persist in your dance of death you are asleep and you will probably never wake up when the trump of Christ sounds do not fit your ears.

There are many ways of denying that the spoken and inspired Words of Jesus Christ are the Words of God. However, instrumental music is the cause, symbol and MARK in many passages. Instrumental Music is the means but replacing the Words of the Spirit with human and often erotic praise songs is the unforgivable sin.

In warning that Israel had cast away the Word of God and replaced it with daily religious festivals as defined by Amos 6 and 6 they would die of hunger and thirst for the Word (Amos 8).

Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them Isaiah 5:11

And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands. Isaiah 5: 12

Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Isaiah 5: 13

Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. Isaiah 5: 14

Thy pomp is brought down to the grave (Sheol), and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms (maggots) cover thee. Isa 14:11

This is the original Babylon king/queen who will rise again as the Babylon Harlot religion and again her musicians and instruments will go into hell with her (Rev. 18)

Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. Isaiah 5: 24

Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. Isaiah 5: 25

Job, who speaks of the Babylon of music as a fertility ritual with "lifting the hand to the star" records the question:

We know, from the statements in Job,

that among patriarchal tribes that had nothing whatever to do with Mosaic institutions,

but which adhered to the pure faith of the patriarchs,

idolatry in any shape was held to be a crime, to be visited with signal and summary punishment on the heads of those who practised it.

"If I beheld the sun," said Job, "when it shined, or the moon walking in brightness; and my heart hath been secretly enticed, and my mouth hath kissed my hand; this also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge; for I should have denied the God that is above" (Job 31:26-28).
