Pepperdine Lectures 2013 Revelation 5

There is no instrumental music in worship in Revelation 5. We don't believe that the plot of the Bible department is what Pepperdine intends or was founded for.

Pepperdine/NACC Christian Worship Depicted in Revelation?
The sounds above Zion (the church) in prophetic types by Christ and in final warning in Revelation are signs to MARK AND AVOID those who have had their candlestick removed and ABANDONED to the worship of the COSMIC or Creature which is well recorded as instrumental idolatry at Mount Sinai. The next event will be Cast Alive into the Lake of Fire for taking the mark (mind control) of the Beasts (a new style of music and drama claiming to lead you into the presence of God.)

These links will connect to the literature and word definitions to prove that women performers are defined as sorcerers and NOT prophets speaking for God.

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

What he means is the restoration of the Disciples of Christ--Christian churches: Christian churches did not begin to begin until 1927 and not fully sected out of the Disciples until 1971. That was when the Stone-Campbell Movement began to seduce young preachers with no Bible depth.  All such movements have the intention of adding instrumental performances as their task led by and informed by the NACC.  The tiny number of Churches of Christ which have been seduced have no intention of restoring the John 17 unity where the Son speaks only what He hears from the Father and removing theatrical performance (defining the hypocrites by Jesus).  Therefore, unity is never the goal but seduction into what is universally the MARK of people who tell God "we will not teach that which is written for our learning."  The unionism is a Preacher's Union grasping more of the "lord's money" for which there is no Biblical Role and certainly no Dole.

Mike Cope is calling in his Friend, Rick Atchley who turned a church of Christ into an instrumental Christian Church because Rick was "born-ed" in the Christian Church. Under the ploy of unity under the guidance of the  NACC, he sowed massive disunity by twisting all of the Bible and church history. Rick speaks from the authority of "I" but does not read the PLOT of the mentions of instruments under a system of LEGALISM and slaughter.
        Rick Atchley Said that they took the youth to retreats where they heard lots of Christian instrumental music (an oxymoron).  He said WE TAUGHT OUR YOUTH TO LEAVE OUR MOVEMENT.  Rick Atchley will be part of the Pepperdine groupies how to mislead young preachers. This is THE definition of Sectarianism or Heresy and the Heretic in sacrificial systems was the "priest who lifted up the lambs to cut their throats."  Paul outlawed that heresy translated as SELF-pleasure which would continue to reproach Jesus or "expose His nakedness." The Latin is placeo which outlaws any thing that can create the lust of the eye, the lust of the ear or the lust of the "touch" created by instrumental vibrations.

Rick Atchley's goal was to REunite with the Christian Church. While the two were never united, and Rick is being used at Pepperdine and the stated goal is to retrain young preachers we can only assume that the retraining is to make them into Christian Churches.  It would be far more noble if they did not lie, cheat, steal, sow discord and cast out the owners but with minimal morality leave and build their OWN property. The Purpose Driven Cult is to get the new property well funded and the DIVERT the "Lord's money" into their hidden agenda.

The Unity Imperative," and he opened with the declaration,
        "I want to see in my lifetime, our fellowship reunited,
        and I intend to do all that I can to see that that happens" (p. 1).
Churches of Christ and the Disciples-Christian churches were never UNIONED in the first placeThis is lying about history and using psychological violence using the "guilt clause" making Churches of Christ who NEVER used instruments from the day of Pentecost onward guilty of sowing discord for NOT letting he and others IMPOSE instrumental music with not a jot or tittle to hind at singing with instruments in the Church which began in the wilderness and EXCLUDED vocal or instrumental rejoicing and the buffoonery of rhetorical speakers.

See Christ defining Blasphemy of The Holy Spirit
For I spake NOT unto your fathers, nor  commanded them
        in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt,
         concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: Jeremiah 7:22
But this thing commanded I them, saying,
         Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: (CENI)
         and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, (CENI)
         that it may be well unto you. Jeremiah 7:23

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.  "You can SOW discord and steal from the owners"
Despise tthe Word of God of God and using your own words is:

According to Philo, the gods of the pagans exploit this weakness of men. For the sake of a better effect, and with the intention of more easily cheating their devotes, that they have set their lies to melodies, rhythms and meters.." Click for more.

"Philodemus considered it paradoxical that music should be regarded as veneration of the gods while musicians were paid for performing this so-called veneration. Again, Philodemus held as self deceptive the view that music mediated religious ecstasy. He saw the entire condition induced by the noise of cymbals and tambourines as a disturbance of the spirit.

He found it significant that, on the whole, only women and effeminate men fell into this folly.

Accordingly, nothing of value could be attributed to music; it was no more than a slave of the sensation of pleasure, which satisfied much in the same way that food and drink did.

The Levite instrument players as the PATTERN were called parasites and they used "sounds to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter.  Paul outlaws that in Romans 14-15.
The plot uses the Levite instrument players as their pattern and a "spirit" told them that animal slaughter under the abandonment to the worship of the starry host was God's Command to impose instrumental praise. The Levites prophesied or were soothsayers or sorcerers using David's warrior instruments as exorcism and to warn any godly person not to come near any holy place or into any house "made by human hands."

Christ did not speak through the "Lying pen of the Scribes" or the Scribes and Pharisees Jesus called hypocrites. The Ezekiel 33 example identified the self-speakers or entertaining buffoons, singers or instrument players.
Mike Cope on A Cappella Music

Mike Cope: A few observations from most discussions about a cappella singing:

First: Most people I know who want to preserve it aren’t trying to make their case in terms of “it’s God’s way.” Some do.
        One of our Christian college presidents — not the one where I teach! —
        once told me that he thought the use of instrumental music would send someone to hell.
                    [Christ said that in Isaiah 30   Revelation 19:20]
        (Just when you thought no one really, really, really believed that . . . .
“Yes, I know you served the poor, you lived an exemplary life of compassion, justice, and worship —
        but you used a piano in worship . . . .”)
        Most are talking about the strengths of the tradition
        a tradition that is preserved by several tribes.
        See, for example, this conference being held next summer at Pepperdine.

Christ in Amos and Isaiah showed that the INSTRUMENTAL NOISE in their religious festivals was the cause of the people "hungering and thirsting for the word and never able to find it."  It needs no proving that rhetorical styles (lots of buffoonery) NOT teaching that which has been taught, or singing silly praise ditties to "help prop up the gods" instead of the Biblical Text is an INTENTIONAL effort to "silence the voice of the victim." Scripture DOES say that such people will be cast into hell or "cast alive into the lake of fire."  If you make it your occupation to hide the truth from the youth, don't be surprised if Christ does not let you read BLACK text on BROWN paper (2 Corinthians 3).
John identifies speakers, singers and instrument players as SORCERERS as agents of the Babylon Mother of Harlots.  In all of the "musical" falls from grace the Purpose Driven Purpose is to drive them into "Hell" to the sounds of wind, string and percussion instruments" says Christ in Isaiah 30.  John says the same in the book of Revelation: they will be cast ALIVE into the Lake of Fire.  Both Amos and John identified these agents of the Babylon Mother of Harlots as "lusted after fruits." That translates to Catamites.

The effort to CONVERT or SUBVERT fittingly uses the Levites as the pattern for their "Musical Worship Teams."  The command to PLAY the instruments was when they made an offering for absent Israel which was GOATS (Capella) AS A BURNT OFFERING.


Num 18:1  And the LORD said unto Aaron,
        Thou and thy sons and thy father’s house with thee
        shall bear the iniquity of the sanctuary: [a sancturary whether for Jehovah or idols]
        and thou and thy sons with thee shall
        bear the iniquity of your priesthood. [Kahan, an old pagan priesthood]
Num 18:3 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the tabernacle:
        only they shall
not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar,
        that neither they, nor ye also, di
e. [Nadab and Abihu the mockers love to mock]

Num 18:5 And ye shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar:
        that there be no wrath any more upon the children of Israel.


Ezek 44:10 And the Levites that are gone away far from me,
        when Israel went astray, which went astray away from me
        after their idols; they shall even bear their iniquity.

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

Ezek 44:13 And they shall NOTcome near unto me,
        to do the office of a priest unto me,
        nor to come near to any of my holy things, in the most holy place:
        but they shall bear their shame,
        and their abominations which they have committed.

H5771 ‛âvôn ‛âvôn aw-vone', aw-vone' From H5753; perversity, that is, (moral) evil:--fault, iniquity, mischief, punishment (of iniquity), sin. H5753 ‛âvâh aw-vaw' A primitive root; to crook, literally or figuratively:--do amiss, bow down, make crooked, commit iniquity, pervert, (do) perverse (-ly), trouble, X turn, do wickedly, do wrong.
  1. God did NOT command the Levites to be Musical Worship Leaders.
  2. If you say that He did and that this is God's commandment to YOUR church
  3. Then the Spirit OF Christ calls you a blasphemer.
  4. It's true: Scripture never says "thou shalt not be a hypocrite or a blasphemer."

The Psalm 106 Pattern

Psalm 106:12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.
Psalm 106:13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:
Psalm 106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.
Psalm 106:15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
Psalm 106:16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the Lord.
Psalm 106:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.
Psalm 106:18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.
Psalm 106:19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.
Psalm 106:20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass
Psalm 106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;


Acts 7:41And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands

Pind. I. 7   In which of the local glories of the past, divinely blessed Thebe, did you most delight your spirit? Was it when you raised to eminence the one seated beside Demeter of the clashing bronze cymbals, flowing-haired [5] Dionysus? Or when you received, as a snow-shower of gold in the middle of the night, the greatest of the gods, when he stood in the doorway of Amphitryon, and then went in to the wife to beget Heracles?

Acts 7:42 Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness? 

The Romans 1 Pattern

Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools
Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
See the story of the Golden Calf: you will find that most people who repudiate baptism which was a TYPE at the Red Sea also fall into the musical idolatry of the pagan trinity.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 
Rick Atchley's prooftext from David Faust shows that the Evil Sacrificial System was taken OUTSIDE of the Jerusalem walls by Ahaz. This broke the quarantine and God brought a plague on the system so that the Temple was so polluted with Assyrian vessels (instruments) that the pagan sacrificial system could not take place.  In 2 Chronicles 29 Hezekiah proposed a 'Plague Stopping Exorcism.'  This was not Rick Atchley's patternism for a worship service. 

Contrary to being a spiritual worship service, the sacrificial system had been imposed and if it were not performed it would bring down God's wrath as punishment due for NOT performing what they had been abandoned to.

Num 18:6 And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from among the children of Israel:
         to you they are given as a gift for the LORD,
         to do the service [hard bondage] of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Num 18:7 Therefore thou and thy sons with thee shall keep your priest’s office for every thing of the altar,
        and within the veil; and ye shall serve: I have given your priest’s office unto you as a service of gift:

        and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.


Rev. 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,
        Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God,
        and the power of his Christ:
        for the accuser of our brethren is cast down,
        which accused them before our God day and night.

Rev. 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb,
        and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

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

Rev. 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth,
        he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

A.  The Spirit OF Christ spoke through the prophets and Jesus whom God made to be both Lord and Christ made the prophecies more certain: Peter gave this this teaching foundation as one way to mark and avoid false teachers.  Jacob warned us NOT to associate with Levi and wait for the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.

Those who have been duped claim that THEIR pattern is the Tribe of Levi: this authorizes senior pastors as kings set over us, priests hired to the body functions and musicians to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter." This intends to sacrifice the teachings of Christ in the prophets and apostles which is the RESTRICTED teaching resource.

The instrumental noise in Psalm 41 was to MOCK Jesus and try to get Him to be silent.

(The Parenthesis is bracketed between the musical fall from grace at Mount Sinai and the Reign of Jesus Christ which destroyed the Jewish Covenant with Death. The sounds of real trumpets and harps were a judgmental sound warning ANY godly person not to attend the Jewish assemblies or made a covenent with the tribe of Levi.)

All of those imposing a "covenant with death" use 2 Chronicles 29 to say that God commanded instrumental praise for THEIR church and you must not resist.
God's command was that the Levites Stand in Ranks under the King and Commanders of the Army to warn and execute any godly person who came near the animal slaughter behind closed gates where God quarantined it. It may be symbolic that the vocational deacons are fired and only "ministers" be allowed to participate in the holy places of church architecture.
When the Burnt Offering of goats for already-lost Israel began the Levites made instrumental sounds under the command of David.

Christ says that God DID NOT command sacrifices or burnt offerings. Therefore, the PLOT intends to FORCE happy congregations to begin doing what Christ in all of the prophets repudiated as the work of robbers and parasited.
What was prophesied in words or types MUST be fulfilled when the Lion of the Tribe of Judah replaces The Book of The Law and the monarchy as Civil-Military-Clergy which was a parenthetical fall into musical idolatry and being sentenced to Worship the Starry Host. Christ in the prophets calls them robbers and parasites: recorded by the Lying Pen of the Scribes.

The Book of Revelation defines the Reign of Christ in His present Kingdom by first excluding the pagan and Jewish sacrificial systems which God considered the same as killing a man.

This is the MARK of Cain (from a musical note) who is OF that wicked one and Paul said that Eve was wholly seduced in a sexual sense.

The Levites--an old Egyprian infant burning sect--were under the KING and commanders of the Army. This was the common system in Egypt and was carried to Jerusalem to be continued. The Greek texts define both the Greek and Jewish sacrificial systems which God did not Command (Isaiah 1; Jeremiah 7 etal)

Verg. A. 11.660 
Swift through the midmost slaughter proudly strides
the quiver-girt Camilla, with one breast
thrust naked to the fight, like Amazon.
Oft from her hand her pliant shafts she rains,
or whirls with indefatigable arm
a doughty battle-axe; her shoulder bears

Diana's sounding [sŏno] arms and golden bow.
Sometimes retreating and to flight compelled,
the maiden with a rearward-pointing bow
shoots arrows as she flies. Around her move
her chosen peers, Larina, virgin brave,

Tarpeia, brandishing an axe of bronze,
and Tulla, virgins out of Italy
whom the divine Camilla chose to be
her glory, each a faithful servitress
in days of peace or war. The maids of Thrace  [source of Threskia or IMPURE religion]
ride thus along Thermodon's frozen flood,
and fight with blazoned Amazonian arms
around Hippolyta; or when returns

Penthesilea in triumphal car
'mid acclamations shrill, [Ulŭlo halal] and all her host
of women clash in air the moon-shaped shield.

        and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear;
        and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Dave Clayton says that they were celebrating like the LOUDEST FOOTBALL. Then silence! John will lead up to chapter 17 to warn about the Babylon Mother of Harlots: all instrumental worship was to the mother goddesses.  She uses lusted after fruits (same as in Amos) as teknokrats, rhetoricians, singers and instrument players.  John calls the sorcerers who HAD deceived the whole world. He consigns them to be cast alive into the Lake of Fire.

Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven:
        and the first voice which I heard was
        as it were [parable] of a trumpet talking with me;
        which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
Revelation 4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit:
        and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

The Voice of God is AS IT WERE of a trumpet: that's a parable to fool the foolish (Matthew 13). This voice always SPEAKS or SAYS and never PLAYS a musical tooml

Revelation 4:3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone:
        and there was a rainbow round about the throne,
        in sight like unto an emerald.
Revelation 4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats:
        and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting,
        clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
Revelation 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices:
        and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne,
        which are the seven Spirits of God.

The seven Spirits of God are NOT persons but forms of Divine knowledge.
Is. 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse,
        and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
Is. 11:2 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;
Is. 11:3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD:
        and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes,
        neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
Isaiah 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse,
        which shall stand for an ensign of the people;
        to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

Revelation 4:6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: [parable]
        and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne,
        were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

Daniel 3:5 That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer,
        and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:
Daniel 3:6 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour
        be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
Dan 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints,
        and prevailed against them;
Dan 7:22 Until the Ancient of days came,
        and judgment was given to the saints of the most High;
        and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
Dan 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth,
        which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth,
        nd shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
Dan 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise:
        and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first,
        and he shall subdue three kings.

Pan is the king of the Arcadian Satyrs mated to Athene, Penelope, Selene and other forms of the Great Goddess. The Horned One was as archaic title of Mother Hera. Horns and hair on male heads were common symbols of sexual energy, hence the fertility magick of horns. Pan, the pastures, the old God, the goat lascivious [Cappella], could never get enough of copulation. Pan's the Greek for all, the personification of all nature. The Capricorn sign is not a goat as such but Pan. A love of nymphs [brides in rev 18] and music. Invented the reed pipes (pipes of Pan).

"The horns of Pan represent the power of spirituality, and how the animal side can be harnessed and transmuted to spiritual ends. The earliest true meaning of chastity was for the harnessing of this wild, powerful sexual energy and turning it inwards for the purposes of spiritual development."

Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High,
        and shall wear out the saints of the most High,
        and think to change times and laws:
        and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Dan 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
Dan 7:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,  and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
Dan 7:28 Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.

Plato Republic 3 True, he said. 
And therefore when any one of these pantomimic gentlemen, who are so clever that they can imitate anything, comes to us, and makes a proposal to exhibit himself and his poetry, we will fall down and worship him as a sweet and holy and wonderful being; but we must also inform him that in our State such as he are not permitted to exist; the law will not allow them.
        And so when we have anointed him with myrrh,
        and set a garland of wool upon his head, we shall send him away to another city.

Revelation 4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him;
        and they were full of eyes within:
        and they rest not day and night, saying,
        Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
Revelation 4:9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks
        to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
Revelation 4:10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne,
        and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power:
        for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.


Dave Clayton promises them freedom: Celebration in heaven can actually be done on earth, healing, anxiety, joy in heaven.

Jesus died to give us liberty from the laded burden and burden laders: burdens are repeating types of songs which "create spiritual anxiety through religious rituals. In Isaiah 58 Christ in Spirit outlawed SELF-PLEASURE and SPEAKING YOUR OWN WORDS.  Paul understood that and outlawed the SELF-pleasure words which "create mental excitement." The purpose of such theatrics intends to fill the office of the sacrificial HERETIC: the sacrificial priest who "lifted them up to cut their throats."  The sacrificial musicians were called Parasites.

A Beast is defined as "a new style of music or drama." In the account of Plato, when they change the style of singing they intend to change the laws. Even a Levite who played a harp in any holy house was to be executed.  That is why the beasts and elders have to submit and instead of PLAYING literal harps they finally APPREHEND the Word of God.

Rev. 5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice,
        Who is worthy to open the book,
        and to loose the seals thereof?

Rev. 5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth,
        was able to open the book,
        neither to look thereon.

The Word is sealed: Jesus spoke to the clergy in parables from the foundation of the world because from Isaiah 48 they would use it to fleece the lambs, eat their flesh and craunch their bones.

The task is to LOOSE the seals: the seals are our own mind or spirit: it will not vibrate in tune with the mind of Christ.  Therefore, HOLDING harms means that they have the mental power to vibrate. No one PLAYS harps in heaven.
And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face,

.........the same vail untaken away 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

Remember that the ELDERS nor the BEASTS could open the Word of the Lamb.  Therefore, in the Christian Kingdom the ELDERS and the BEASTS with not rule the nation not try to SPEAK using musical instruments.  They could not APPREHEND the Word of God.

Revelation 5:8 And when he had taken the book,
        the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb,

Worship is iN the spirit or mind as opposed to IN the flesh or IN a house built by human hands OR by the WORKS of human hands.  Both APPREHENDING the instrument of God AND prayers are IN the spirit or mind and never WITH musical instruments.

fell down before the Lamb,

which are the prayers of saints.

The first time these "Living Creatures" are mentioned in the Bible is in Gen. 3:24, where they are called "CHERUBIM," but are not described. They were placed at the entrance to the "Garden of Eden" to prevent the re-entrance of Adam and Eve, and to keep the way of the "Tree of Life." It would appear as if at the place where they were stationed there was a Tabernacle, a place of worship to which Cain and Abel resorted to make their offerings, and that it was from there that Cain went out from the "PRESENCE OF THE LORD." Gen. 4:16.

Of Messiah who is MOCKED with musical instruments:
DSS: 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.

An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more. Ps.41:8
DSS: 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.


Ephraim on Our Lord

45. But hear ye the marvel that our Lord wrought. Because that Pharisee supposed that our Lord did not know that the woman who touched Him was a sinner;
        our Lord made the lips of the Pharisee like the strings of a harp;
        and by his very lips He sang
                how she was trampling under foot his sins, though he knew it not.

And he who as though he knew had blamed, was found to be a harp,
        whereto another could sing of that which he knew.

For our Lord compared the sins of the sinful woman to five hundred dinars, and caused them to pass into the hearing of the Pharisee by the parable which he heard; and again brought them forth from his mouth in the judgment he gave;though Simon knew not, when he was judging, that those five hundred dinars denoted the sins of the sinful woman.

And (the Pharisee) who thought concerning our Lord that He had not knowledge of her sins, was himself found not to have knowledge of them, when he heard of those debts in the parable, and gave judgment concerning them with his voice. But when it was explained to him at last by our Lord.
then the Pharisee knew that alike his ears and also his lips were, as it were,instruments for our Lord, through which He might sing the glories of His knowledge.

For this Pharisee was the fellow of those scribes, whose sentence by their own mouths our Lord gave against them;- 

What then will the Lord of the vineyard do to those husbandmen?
They say unto Him, against themselves:-He will terribly destroy them, and will hire out the vineyard to husbandmen who will render unto Him the fruit in its season. This is the Godhead to which all things are easy, which by the mouths, the very mouths that blasphemed it, pronounced the sentence of those very mouths against them. 

HAVING is not playing:
it means APPREHENDING the Word of God.
David's harps were for war or animal slaughter: God made us into a harp or flute:

Isaiah 57:19 I create the fruit of the lips;
        Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near,
        saith the LORD; and I will heal him.

        sāno , I. to make sound, to heal, cure, restore to health, correct, remove,
        RESTORE, repair, make quiet        “discordiam,id. 2, 34

Paul insisted that this is ALL that God created for us: He did NOT create a single "machine for doing hard work."
Hebrews 13:15 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.

The Lamb took the book out of the RIGHT HAND of the Throne.

Picture Source

Rev. 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the righthand of him that sat upon the throne.
Rev. 5:8 And when he had taken the book,
        the four beasts and four and twenty elders
        fell down before the Lamb,
        having [holding] every one of them harps,
        and golden vials full of odours,
                which are the prayers of saints.
The direct command is to SPEAK that which is written.
The EFFECT for the baptized believer is that the BOOK
causes the heart strings to vibrate in sympathy with God's movement.

The Odes of Solomon Ode 6

1 As the hand moves over the harp, and the strings speak,

2 So speaks in my members the Spirit of the Lord, and I speak by His love.
3 For it destroys what is foreign and everything that is bitter:
6 And the praise of His name He gave us:

        our spirits praise His holy Spirit.“

7 For there went forth a stream and became a river great and broad
8 For it flooded and broke up everything and it brought (water) to the Temple;

The Scribes and Pharisees (Hypocrites, rhetoricians, singers musicians) RESTRAIN the Word of God: that is their job. The doctors of the law take away the key to knowledge.

9 And the restrainers of the children of men were not able to restrain it,
        nor the arts of those whose business it is to
restrain waters

Luke 5:17  And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them. 

Luke 5:21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?

Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

Ode 12: 

1 He hath filled me with words of truth; that I may speak the same;
2 And like the
flow of waters flows truth from my mouth, and my lips show forth His fruit.

3 And He has caused His knowledge to abound in me, because the mouth of the Lord is the true Word, and the door of His light;

Let the word of Christ (spirit) 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. Colossians 3:16

4 And the Most High hath given it to His words,

which are the interpreters of His own beauty,
and the
repeaters of His praise, and
confessors of His counsel and
heralds of His thought and
chasteners of His servants.

Plut. Per. 13
[11] And why should any one be astonished that men of wanton life lose no occasion for offering up sacrifices, as it were, of contumelious abuse of their superiors, to the evil deity of popular envy, when even Stesimbrotus of Thasos has ventured to make public charge against Pericles of a dreadful and fabulous impiety with his son's wife? [12] To such degree, it seems, is truth hedged about with difficulty and hard to capture by research, since those who come after the events in question find that lapse of time is an obstacle to their proper perception of them; while the research of their contemporaries into men's deeds and lives, partly through envious hatred and partly through fawning flattery, defiles and distorts the truth.
Eur.

You came to me, your hair glittering with gold, when I was plucking into the folds of my robe yellow flowers [890] to bloom with golden light; grasping my white hand in yours, you led me to the bed in the cave, hearing me call on my mother, god and consort, [895] shamelessly paying homage to Aphrodite. I, the unhappy one, bore you a son, whom in fear of my mother I placed in that bed of yours, [900] where you joined with me, the miserable, the unfortunate one, in unhappy union. Alas! and now my son and yours, oh cruel one, is gone, torn apart, a feast for birds; [905] but you are singing to the lyre, chanting hymns.

Satyric Drama
The material for a satyric drama, like that for a tragedy, was taken from an epic or legendary story, and the action, which took place under an open sky, in a lonely wood, the haunt of the Satyrs, had generally an element of tragedy; but the characteristic solemnity and stateliness of tragedies was somewhat diminished, without in any way impairing the splendour of the tragic costume and the dignity of the heroes introduced. The amusing effect of the play did not depend so much on the action itself, as was the case in comedy, but rather on the relation of the chorus to that action. That relation was in keeping with the wanton, saucy, and insolent, and at the same time cowardly, nature of the Satyrs. The number of persons in the chorus is not known; probably there were either twelve or fifteen, as in tragedy. In accordance with the popular notions about the Satyrs, their costume consisted of the skin of a goat, deer, or panther, thrown over the naked body, and besides this a hideous mask and bristling hair. The dance of the chorus in the satyric drama was called sikinnis or sikinnon, and consisted of a fantastic kind of skipping and jumping. The only satyric play now extant is the Cyclops of Euripides (translated into English by Shelley), though the Alcestis of the same poet has some satyric features. The Romans did not imitate this kind of drama in their literature (Marius Victor, in Gram. Lat. vi. 82), although, like the Greeks, they composed amusing afterpieces following their serious plays. See Welcker, Griech. Tragödie, 1361; and Exodium.

        and there are many other such creatures and practices which are yet
        for the time being very pleasant; but a lover is not only harmful to his beloved
[240c] but extremely disagreeable to live with as well. The old proverb says, “birds of a feather flock together”; that is, I suppose, equality of age leads them to similar pleasures and through similarity begets friendship; and yet even they grow tired of each other's society. Now compulsion of every kind is said to be oppressive to every one, and the lover not only is unlike his beloved, but he exercises the strongest compulsion. For he is old while his love is young, and he does not leave him day or night,

Ekklesia or Synagogue was never called a WORSHIP SERVICE.

Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught,

"The Lyre, according to its primary significance, may by the psalmist be used figuratively for the Lord; accordingly to its secondary, for those who continually strike the chords of their souls under the direction of the Choir-master, the Lord. And if the people saved be called the lyre, it will be understood to be in consequence of their giving glory musically, through the inspiration of the Word and the knowledge of God, being struck by the Word so as to produce faith.

"You may take music in another way, as the ecclesiastical symphony at once of the law and the prophets, and the apostles along with the Gospel, and the harmony which obtained in each prophet, in the transitions of the persons. --(Clement of Alexandrian allegorizes instrumental music, Stromata, Book VI, Chapt XI, Ante-Nicene, II, p. 500).

HH 3 185 Leto's all-glorious son goes to rocky Pytho, playing upon his hollow lyre, clad in divine, perfumed garments; and his lyre, [185] at the touch of the golden key, sings sweet. Thence, swift as thought, he speeds from earth to Olympus, to the house of Zeus, to join the gathering of the other gods: then straightway the undying gods think only of the lyre and song, and all the Muses together, voice sweetly answering voice, [190] hymn the unending gifts the gods enjoy and the sufferings of men, all that they endure at the hands of the deathless gods, and how they live witless and helpless and cannot find healing for death or defence against old age.
Some passages:

Iliad 19. And the gleam thereof went up to heaven, and all the earth round about laughed by reason of the flashing of bronze; and there went up a din from beneath the feet of men; and in their midst goodly Achilles arrayed him for battle. [365] There was a gnashing of his teeth, and his two eyes blazed as it had been a flame of fire, and into his heart there entered grief that might not be borne. Thus in fierce wrath against the Trojans he clad him in the gifts of the god, that Hephaestus had wrought for him with toil. The greaves first he set about his legs:

ILIAD [95] Nay, return thou back, when once thou hast set a light of deliverance amid the ships, and suffer the rest to battle over the plain. For I would, O father Zeus, and Athene, and Apollo, that no man of the Trojans might escape death, of all that there are, neither any of the Argives, but that we twain might escape destruction, [100] that alone we might loose the sacred diadem of Troy. On this wise spake they one to the other, but Aias no longer abode, for he was sore beset with darts; the will of  overmastering him, and the lordly Trojans with their missiles; and terribly did the bright helm about his temples [105] ring continually, as it was smitten, for smitten it ever was upon the well-wrought cheek-pieces, and his left shoulder grew weary as he ever firmly held his flashing shield; nor might they beat it back about him, for all they pressed him hard with darts. And evermore was he distressed by laboured breathing, [110] and down from his limbs on every side abundant sweat kept streaming, nor had he any wise respite to get his breath withal, but every way evil was heaped upon evil.

ILIAD 18:[490] Therein fashioned he also two cities of mortal men exceeding fair. In the one there were marriages and feastings, and by the light of the blazing torches they were leading the brides from their bowers through the city, and loud rose the bridal song. And young men were whirling in the dance, and in their midst [495] flutes and lyres sounded continually; and there the women stood each before her door and marvelled. But the folk were gathered in the place of assembly; for there a strife had arisen, and two men were striving about the blood-price of a man slain; the one avowed that he had paid all, [500] declaring his cause to the people, but the other refused to accept aught; and each was fain to win the issue on the word of a daysman. Moreover, the folk were cheering both, shewing favour to this side and to that. And heralds held back the folk, and the elders were sitting upon polished stones in the sacred circle, [505] holding in their hands the staves of the loud-voiced heralds...

[520] But when they were come to the place where it seemed good unto them to set their ambush, in a river-bed where was a watering-place for all herds alike, there they sate them down, clothed about with flaming bronze. Thereafter were two scouts set by them apart from the host, waiting till they should have sight of the sheep and sleek cattle.
[525] And these came presently, and two herdsmen followed with them playing upon pipes; and of the guile wist they not at all.
Pindar,  Pythian 10.[31] Once Perseus, the leader of his people, entered their homes and feasted among them, when he found them sacrificing glorious hecatombs of donkeys to the god. In the festivities of those people [35] and in their praises Apollo rejoices most, and he laughs when he sees the erect arrogance of the beasts. [37] The Muse is not absent from their customs; all around swirl the dances of girls, the lyre's loud chords and the cries of flutes. [40] They wreathe their hair with golden laurel branches and revel joyfully.


Hecuba Alas! a dreadful trial is near, it seems, [230] full of mourning, rich in tears. Yes, I too escaped death where death had been my due, and Zeus did not destroy me but is still preserving my life, that I may witness in my misery fresh sorrows surpassing all before. But if the bond may ask the free of things that do not GRIEVE them or WRENCH their heart-strings, you ought to speak in answer to my questions and I ought to hear what you have to say.

Euripides Ion
The bowstring touch'd her breast, so strong she drew;
Whizzing in air the fatal arrow flew.
At once the twanging bow and sounding dart 
The traitor heard, and felt the point within his heart.
Thy scarlet-tinctured foot? or from my bow
The lyre of Phoebus [Apollo, Apollyon] to thy notes attuned
Will not protect thee; farther stretch thy wings;
Go, wanton, skim along the Delian lake,
Or wilt thou steep thy melody in blood.
Look, what strange bird comes onwards; wouldst thou fix
Beneath the battlements thy straw-built nest?
My singing bow shall drive thee hence; begone,
Or to the banks of Alpheus, gulfy stream, grace
Or to the Isthmian grove; there hatch thy young;

P. Vergilius Maro, Aeneid. 11.836

The winged shaft, predestin'd for the deed;
Then to the stubborn yew her strength applied,
Till the

Whizzing in air the fatal arrow flew.

The conqu'ring damsel, with expanded wings,
The welcome message to her mistress brings. 

Only Jesus Christ can open the Words of Spirit and Life and Paul difined the two roles of the synagogue or ekklesia: this ins INCLUSIVE and EXCLUSIVE:
We silence any diversity of dialog (Rom 15)
We "sing that which is written" and
We "teach that which has been taught."
We KNOW and do not COMPOSE the song: it says that Jesus Christ by virtue of His death gets the right to speak for himself through the BOOK which he left as the Spirit OF the prophets and by guiding the Apostles into ALL truth.
Jamison-Fausett-Brown Revelation 8 notes that:
"In the Jewish temple, musical instruments and singing resounded during the whole time of the offering of the sacrifices, which formed the first part of the service. 

But at the offering of incense, solemn silence was kept ("My soul waiteth upon God," Ps 62:1; "is silent," Margin; Ps 65:1, Margin), the people praying secretly all the time. The half-hour stillness implies, too, the earnest adoring expectation with which the blessed spirits and the angels await the succeeding unfolding of God's judgments. A short space is implied; for even an hour is so used (Re 17:12 18:10,19).

Duwmiyyah (h1747) doo-me-yaw'; from 1819; stillness; adv. silently; abstr. quiet, trust: - silence, silent, waiteth

Rev 5:9 And they SUNG a new song, SAYING
"Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: 
for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred,
and tongue, and people, and nation;
And hast made us unto our God kings and priests:
and we shall reign on the earth."
Sing is ODE which never permits an instrrument. Oide  "a Hebrew cantillation" and NOT METRICAL.

Revelation 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
Revelation 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne
        and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
Revelation 5:12 SAYING with a loud voice,
        Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

Christ in Isaiah defined the future kingdom both inclusively and exclusively: in Isaiah 58 He outlawed seeking your own pleasure or speaking your own words. The elders and musicians REFUSE to do that.
SAYING IS 3004, LEGO, a set DISCOURSE (not poetry or music)/ NOT laleo (2980) to PREACH.

Polayto, Sophists    -[263e] and the several differences between them.Theaetetus

Give me an opportunity.

Stranger Well, then, thought and speech are the same; only the former, which is a silent inner conversation of the soul with itself, has been given the special name of thought. Is not that true?Theaetetus


Stranger  But the stream that flows from the soul in vocal utterance through the mouth has the name of speech?

Plato, Protogoras:
All distinguish between the low class in the market-place and the decent, educated people.

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

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

Revelation 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth,

R. Abba b. Kahana said: All of them reverted to a curse,  excepting the synagogues and schoolhouses, for it is written, But the Lord thy God turned the curse into a blessing for thee, because the Lord thy God loved thee;  the curse, but not the curses.
41 I.e., only one intentioned curse was permanently turned into a blessing, viz.. that concerning synagogues etc., as these were destined never to disappear from Israel.

If the rhetoricians are just FABRICATING stuff and the singers are making the BLOOD PUMP speed up or the MACHINES attack you then APOLLO HAS LANDED and his agents inted to Silence the Mouth of the Lamb.
