Patrick Mead on Instrumental
Patrick Mead at Rochester Church
of Christ in his first
sermon on God and Instrumental
sifts through the Old Testament for passages that use an instrument of
any kind. This tends to flood the mind
with the notion that the
Bible is filled with direct commands to use instrumental music to
worship God. Rev 12.26.10
NEVER ACCEPT A SERMON ABOUT
INSTRUMENTS IN A CHURCH OF CHRIST UNTIL YOU HAVE SOME BACKGROUND.
|THOSE WHO IMPOSE
INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC BUILD ON THE FOUNDATION OF THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES.
first two reasons assert that under the Old Testament, God did not just
allow instrumental music, He commanded and blessed it. Rick offered the
following passages for these contentions: 2 Chronicles 5:13-14; 7:6;
29:25-26; Psalm 33:1- 3; 92:1-3; 150:1-6.
Never mind that
the godly tribes were quarantined. No singer or player went INTO or
NEAR a holy thing or place on the penalty of death. Some of these
patterns are separated from the last by up to 300 years.

Stand in the gate of the Lords house [courts], and proclaim

THE PROPHECIES BY CHRIST WERE FULFILLED BY JESUS CHRIST:

speakers, singers and instrument players in Ezekiel 33.

God did NOT speak through the lying pen of the Scribes who
recorded the Monarchy which God had NOT commanded.
Heb. 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners
spake in time
past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Heb. 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us BY HIS SON
whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
by whom also he made the worlds;
Heb. 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory,
and the express image of his person,
and upholding all things by the WORD
of his power,
when he had by himself purged our sins,
sat down on the right hand of the Majesty
THOSE WHO DELIBERATELY SOW DISCORD BY QUOTING THE LYING PEN
OF THE SCRIBES (hypocrites: speakers, singers, instrument players)
are defined by the Spirit:
Jer. 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
Hearken not unto the words of the prophets
that prophesy unto you:
they make you vain: they speak a vision
of their own heart,
and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
Jer 23:17 They say still unto them that despise me,
The Lord hath said, Ye shall have peace;
and they say unto every one that walketh
after the imagination of his own heart,
No evil shall come upon you.
Despise tthe Word of God of God and using your own words is:
Blasphēm-eō , pf. A. “beblasphēmēka”
D.18.10:—speak profanely of sacred things, “eis theous” Pl.R.381e;
offer rash prayers,
1. Because Christ as Spirit spoke ONLY through the prophets.
2. Those who use use the pattern of the Lying Pen of the Scribes, in
fact despise and ignore the SPIRIT message.
3. Christ in Jeremiah defines that as blasphemy

contemn, despise, flourish, X great, provoke. 1.04.11 Bible 101a

Jesus said "my WORDS are Spirit and Life."
out of your own imagination while pretending to speak for Christ
is defined as blasphemy.
The Progressive Church of
Christ members note that they have reached their plateau. A Cloud
Unknowing is prophesied of those who treat the word like a mechanic
pretending to be a Brain Surgeon.
The amazing thing is that
this small pool which has lost connection with the head: by lifting
those proof texts necessary to sow discord within the Church of Christ,
and failing to understand the context, they have unwittingly or
half-wittingly ascribed to the Spirit of Christ what He did not say:
does that not constitute blasphemy?
CENI means that no one can survive speaking out of their OWN
IMAGINATION rather than simply reading an account and discussing it.
Jer 23:16 Thus saith the Lord of hosts,
Hearken not unto the
of the prophets that prophesy unto you;
they make you vain:

the Word. Otherwise, to prophesy meant to MAKE SELF a prophets in a

There is no ROLE for them and
no DOLE: rhetoricians and musicians were called HYPOCRITES by Jesus and
PARASITES by decent society.

Do trust your souls to people
who mock the church: Christ and His Word "as taught" is the only guide
into the spiritual world and the rest including wind, string and
percussion musicians John called sorcerers are doomed for the Lake of Fire.
Before looking at any rationale
for adding instruments into a Church of Christ it would be well to note
that the Bible, church scholars and founders of denominations denied
that the instruments of paganism and the theater had any role to play
in the Church which is synagogue, ekklesia or school of the Word of
Christ: A DISCIPLE of Christ is to be taught what Jesus Christ
COMMANDED to be taught.

example to most those who grasp the story.
Why is this important in reviewing
the RESOURCES hand fed by the NACC
to a few preachers and THEIR repeating the material almost
Mead: intentionally just
picks up on the
obvious uses of instruments (machines for deceiving or
controlling) none of which are used in the spiritual worship of the
"citizens" of Israel. On the contrary, these are all marks
of Satan (Lucifer, Zoe), making war, sending signals, exorcism,
prostitutes and Sodomites. The proof-texts--intentionally ignoring the
context and story line--are MARKS of a national, Civil-Priestly state
which God abandoned Israel because of musical idolatry
[Acts 7 and many clear statements)
ONLY THROUGH THE PROPHETS. Christ affirmed the musical fall from
grace most of the prophets. The Monarchy was NOT a system of worship
for the common, godly people who attended synagogue or church in the
wilderness as a school of the Word (only).
There seems to
be a crippling veil which has not been removed because clergy, by
definition, have served the secular world and have not turned to
Christ. It doesn't matter how many cases of the use of
instrumental music in the Civil system in Washington: it has no
connection to the spiritual world.
On the other
hand, the Bible is
flooded with LOUD warnings beginning with Genesis
where the "serpent" is defined as a musical enchanter(ess) who
bisexual and able to wholly seduce Eve in a sexual way says Paul and
able for Adam to "eat of the tallest tree in Eden" whom the prophets
identify as the Assyrians. The FRUITS are

in Eden: Ezekiel 28
In the middle of the
throughout, Amos lumps the female-controlled
players of musical instrumets with the "basket of summer FRUITS."
DOGS or CATAMITES Paul warned about
our worship. They caused the people to hunger and thirst for the Word
of God until they died or went into captivity with the females led away
with fishhooks in their nose.
Assyrians in Eden: Ezekiel 31
The Bible ends with the Mother of harlots
(Revelation 17) using the "lusted after FRUITS" as
speakers, singers and instrumentalists identified by John as sorcerers
(Revelation 18) who HAD deceived
the whole world.
Jesus told the Apostles why He would not even preach the clear gospel
to the clergy of Scribes and Pharisees
whom He called hypocrites. Jesus pointed to Isaiah
and Ezekiel who identify the HYPOCRITES as
speakers, singers and instrument players along with anyone who would go
out and listen to them to be entertained.
Why do people hide the dozens of
bright lights warning about
as a MARK of rejecting God under a bushel of isolated verses none of
which defines collective worship?
Jesus said that truth had been hidden in parables
from the foundation of the World FROM those He also called Doctors
of the Law who "Take away the KEY to knowledge."
They, being blind, will lead the blind and charge you an unlawful wage
for doing it.
Jesus explains why it may be utterly impossible for those sowing musical
to even read or hear this message: God may have sent strong delusion
and the most powerful DELUDERS were known as singers and musicians.

into God's presence: they claim to be God standing in the holy places

unexpected because a
musical instrument is defined as "a machine for doing hard work mostly
in makingwar and in creating
the shock and awe of

leaders use musical performers to point or direct the credit or worship

We will skip the proof that God
had abandoned the national
to "worship the starry host" because of musical
Sinai. When the elders fired God and demanded a king LIKE THE NATIONS
He understood that to mean "so we can worship like the nations." As a
result Hosea says that "I gave them kings in my anger and took them
away in my anger." God warned that the king set over them would take
tithe and lands and give it to his "ministry team."
He would take
the young girls for the court and the young boys to make musical
and run before the potentate's chariots.
Anyone who has read how the
elders "fired" God and God's
promises that the kings would destroy them, cannot miss the primary
document of O.E.Payne and later by Tom Burgess who justifies
instrumental music by the Greek word Psallo along with the curse of the
Old Testament. Not to be missed is that ALL
of the literature where psallo is used it means only the plucking and
the proof uses Alexander the Great condemned by his father, Philip, for
outing his pederasty by the WAY he plucked the harp seducing young boys
