Heritage is defined as the practice of your godly ancestors: because they were ignorant they can be forgiven.

Rather, the document is intended to describe our general approach to the work of the church—an approach that we hope honors God
        both by engaging our HERITAGE
        and by speaking INTELLIGIBLY in a changing world.

  1. WE ENGAGE our heritage but
  2. WE speak INTELLIGIBLY in a changing KOSMOS to whom God does not speak and Jesus would not pray.
Any musical performance claiming God's authority is called a Lying Wonder. Students of Jesus Christ do not hire a rhetorical or musical TEAM to aid our learning.
SPIRIT: a metaphor for how God puts His WORD into the MOUTH of A Moses, the Prophets and Lastly the Man God "ordained" to be both Lord and Christ.  Jesus now Lives in the STATE of Holy Spirit as the one and only Intercessor.
1Cor. 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul;
        the last Adam was MADE a quickening SPIRIT
John 5:26 For as the Father hath life IN himself;
        so HATH HE GIVEN to the Son to have life in himself;
John 5:27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also,
        BECAUSE he is the SON OF MAN

Universal Lie. They say that: "God injects THE HOLY SPIRIT GOD PERSON into carnal men so they can lie to God and the fleeced widows so that they can TEACH THEIR OWN COMMANDS."  Jesus calls them, Hypocrites to identify those speaking beyond the Word (regulative Principle), singing or playing instrument which are the universally tools of Sorcerers, Witches, Abominators.

Pind. N. 5
I have a light spring in my knees, and eagles swoop over the sea. The most beautiful chorus of Muses sang gladly for the Aeacids on Mt. Pelion, and among them Apollo, sweeping the seven-tongued lyre with a golden plectrum, [25] led all types of strains. And the Muses began with a prelude to Zeus, then sang first of divine Thetis and of Peleus; how Hippolyte, the opulent daughter of Cretheus, wanted to trap him with deceit. With elaborate planning she persuaded her husband, the watcher of the Magnesians, to be a partner in her plot, and she forged a false story...

But all the Giant wanted was, to hear more and more of the mind-bewitching melody with its delicious thrill. When a sailor hears the Siren’s perfidious song, and bewitched by the melody, he is dragged to a self-chosen fate too soon; no longer he cleaves the waves, no longer he whitens the blue water with his oars unwetted now, but falling into the net of melodious Fate, he forgets to steer, quite happy, caring not for the seven starry Pleiades and the Bear’s circling course: so the monster, shaken by the breath of that deceitful tune, welcomed with delight the wound of the pipes which was his escort to death.

No God would need to be consecrated or consecrated.  Jesus the man was to fulfill all Holy Scripture which He defined as the prophecies "concerning Me." Because He was sinless that meant that He was "justified".  However, we who are justified or qualified by faith, need to be obedient in order to be qualified as a priest of God and able to read BLACK text on BROWN Paper.

Sorry but anyone who SELLS their songs or sermons and rejects the WORD as Regulative Principle is said, by Jesus, to be the sons of the Devil.
Paul says that they are UNconverted or baptized. and therefore in 2 Corinthians 3 says that they cannot READ the Scriptures nor can they HEAR the Scriptures when they are PREACHED by being READ in the once-a-week assembly.

God is His WORD in the same sense as LIGHT, GRACE, RIGHTEOUSNESS and anything He has made visible and audible by putting His WORDS into the MOUTH of A Moses, the Prophets and LASTLY into the Mouth of the Man Jesus of Nazareth.  Jesus SPEAKS because God's Spirit or Breath comes WITHOUT MEASURE meaning Musical Meter

Psallo Both Evil and Ugly on Concerned Members. 1.18.20

There is nothing connected with MUSIC connected with the Assembly or School of Christ.

Inaudible:  Ode (opposite of Speak) and an enchantment or Sorcery and

                                always speaks of Girls or pseudo-girls who, with Alexander The Great, had his

Of the DIONYSUS WORSHIP outlawed in Ephesians 5: ALL names for "God" or "Lord" are generic.  Everyone had their own god or Lord. Therefore, Moses needed to know the name of THE Lord-God who appeared to and guided Him.  Jesus said in summary: "I Am the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob."  There had been nine or ten Egyptian "gods" whom the Lord-God had defeated.  Because God had "turned Israel over to worship the starry host" because of the Instrumental-Trinitian-Perverted WORKship which repudiated God Who was identified as the One who that had given them REST because He completed all of the WORKS.

Thus "Bacchus was directly called upon," he says. The Sabazian worship was Sabbatic; the names Evius, or Hevius, and Luaios are identical with Hivite and Levite. The French name Louis is the Hebrew Levi; Iacchus again is Iao or Jehovah; and Baal or Adon, like Bacchus, was a phallic god. "Who shall ascend into the hill (the high place) of the Lord?" asks the holy king David, "who shall stand in the place of his Kadushu ["? (Psalms xxiv. 3). Kadesh may mean in one sense to devote, hallow, sanctify, and even to initiate or to set apart; but it also means the ministers of lascivious rites (the Venus-worship) and the true interpretation of the word Kadesh is bluntly rendered in Deuteronomy xxiii. 17; Hosea iv. 14; and Genesis xxxviii., from verses 15 to 22. The "holy" Kadeshuth of the Bible were identical as to the duties of their office with the Nautch-girls of the later Hindu pagodas. The Hebrew Kadeshim or galli lived "by the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the grove," or bust of Venus-Astarte, says verse the seventh in the twenty-third chapter of 2 Kings.-

        to surpass both in grandeur and essence the whole universe, of which these are parts. "

THE MEANING OF LEGALISM. Nothing is more works-intensive and self-exhibition than the performance of what the call Music.  However, many of the members FLEE when the see the persona even when they do not recognize the meaning.

"For what else do these assert that they can either declare or teach,
        than that we may learn to know the rules and differences of nouns,

        How few orators, poets, critics!.
." (Arnibious, Ante-Nicene, VI, p. 441)

I am SO sorry but I don't think that history knows any exception:

Why did you do this, you lowlife?" Parsondes now spoke without flattery,
        "I thought I was more worthy to have this prize
        since I am manlier and more useful to the king than you,
                a man who keeps his face clean-shaven, wears eye-liner,
                and anoints his skin with white make- up."
Then he answered, "Aren't you ashamed that such a great man as yourself, defeated by your belly and genetalia, has been conquered by the lesser one? I, however," he continued, "will soon make your skin softer and whiter than a woman's." He then swore an oath to Belos and Molis (this is how the Babylonians call Aphrodite).

Nanaros then summoned the eunuch in charge of the songstresses and said to him,
        "take this man and shave his entire body except for his head,
        rub it with pumice stone, wash him twice a day and rinse him with egg-yolk,
        and then put eye-liner on him and braid his hair like a woman's.
                Teach him to sing, play the cithara, and pluck the lyre
                so he can perform like a woman for me with the music-girls,
                with whom he will share a lifestyle by having a soft body,
                wearing the same clothes, and practicing the same skills."

After he spoke, the eunuch took Parsondes, shaved his entire body except for the head,
        taught him what he was asked, keeping him out of the sunlight, washing him twice per day, softening him up,
        and keeping him in the same quarters with the women as his master had ordered.
        Soon after, Parsondes was a white, smooth, and woman-like man,
        who sang and played the cithara more beautifully than the music-girls with
        whom he had performed and surpassed them in beauty as well
        and no one who saw him perform at one of Nanaros' dinner-parties

        would realize that he was not a woman.

After this, he invited the
angaros to join him for a drink and dinner
        and when the meal was served,
        the music-girls entered, 150 women in with Parsondes among them.
Some women played the cithara or aule while others plucked the lyre; Parsondes was the most prominent of them in beauty and talent as he appeared to be a woman too.

When they had their fill of dinner, Nanaros asked the angaros which of the girls he thought was the most attractive and talented and without much thought he replied, "that one" while pointing to Parsondes.
        Nanaros clapped his hands and laughed for a long time before saying, "
        How would you like spending the night with her?"
        to which the
angaros readily assented.
Nanaros then said, "However, I won't let you have her.", and the
angaros relied, "Then why did you ask me?" Nanaros paused for a while and said, "That is Parsondes, the man for whom you have come."


Athenaeus Deipnosophist 4.5.5
So piped he the drunken bagatelles of the Muses sung by Glauce,

         or of Cotalus or Pacalus.77 Nay, then, of Theon the reed-piper say, Farewell, Theon!'

                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—

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.
But where the party consists of thorough gentlemen who have had a proper education,
        you will see neither flute-girls nor dancing-girls nor harp-girls,
                but only the company contenting themselves with their own conversation,

Many ancient Greek and Latin scholars warn that the only way to preserve a teaching is to put it into writing.  If possible, like Jesus, you will have many eye-- and ear--witnesses whose "left memory" is based on Signs and Wonders as Jesus certified the Prophets who defined the Synagoguee and Ekklesia both inclusively and exclusively.

There is no command, example or inference that. the godly Jews ever engaged in group singing with our without instruments.
Many scholars not that "music hurts" and that people intend to hurt when they want to perform anything for you for pay.
Any kind of musical or theatrical performance prevents the only PATTERN to be a school of God available only through His Word or Regulative and Governing Principle.
There are numerous words or concepts which we will list which defined enchantment or sorcery as musical or metrical speech which consumes all of your mind making learning impossible.
We will list many passages which prove that the message of Scripture is that performance music or rhetoric is induced by demon-spirits and not God's Spirit.

"In pagan traditions, musical instruments are invented by gods or demi-gods, such as TITIANS. In the Bible, credit is assigned to antediluvian patriarchs, for example, the descendants of Cain in Genesis 4:21. There is no other biblical tradition about the invention of musical instruments." (Freedman, David Noel, Bible Review, Summer 1985, p. 51). (Proof Here).

We have noted that Adam was made of DUST: The Latin means that mankind had long been on the earth and Adam was a ABORIGINE. That defines everyone including the Jews whom God had not BREATHED Spirit into them:

Is. 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
Is. 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

---- "The marzeah had an extremely long history extending at least from the 14th century B.C. through the Roman period. In the 14th century B.C., it was prominently associated with the ancient Canaanite city of Ugarit (modern Ras Shamra), on the coast of Syria...
The marzeah was a pagan ritual that took the form of a social and religious association... Some scholars regard the funerary marzeah as a feast for--and with--deceased ancestors (or Rephaim, a proper name in the Bible for the inhabitants of Sheol)." (King, Biblical Archaeological Review, Aug, 1988, p. 35, 35) ---- ---
"These five elements are: (1) reclining or relaxing, (2) eating a meat meal, (3) singing with harp or other musical accompaniment, (4) drinking wine and (5) anointing oneself with oil." (King, p. 37).

Comments: Smith believes lines 7-8 should be interpreted "Either literally, as `El walking through the underworld,
or an allusion to `El being "dead drunk," or both metaphorical,
and ironic, as the marzeah serves as the setting
for feasts for the dead and for the living mourning the dead (p. 145).
---- "With the wine-drinking (which is the literal meaning of the Hebrew for feasting), went music and dancing." (Heaton, E. W., Everyday Life in Old Testament times, Scribners, p. 93)
---- "Worship was form more than substance; consequently, conduct in the marketplace was totally unaffected by worship in the holy place. Amos spoke from the conviction that social justice is an integral part of the Mosaic covenant, which regulates relations not only between God and people, but also among people." (King, p. 44).
---- "In pagan traditions, musical instruments are invented by gods or demi-gods, such as titans. In the Bible, credit is assigned to antediluvian patriarchs, for example, the descendants of Cain in Genesis 4:21. There is no other biblical tradition about the invention of musical instruments." (Freedman, David Noel, Bible Review, Summer 1985, p. 51).


Conrad L'Heureux demonstrated that the marzeah, or symposium (feast, gathering, banquet, assembly) of El that is found in the Rephaim Texts of Ugarit "must be a reflex in the divine world of the symposium celebrated by the members of the earthly marzeah of El...each guild apparently had a divine patron."42 The heavenly marzeah had participants called rp'm, which we also find in the earthly marzeah, e.g., "May Krt be greatly exalted among the rp'm of the earth...the rp'm constitute an aristocracy of which the Canaanite kings were a part."43 Moses, and the prophets following him were proclaimed as "Speakers for Yahweh," showing the people that "they are sent from the divine king, the suzerain of treaties, to reprove and to pronounce judgment upon Israel..."44

Note 42: Conrad L'Heureux, "The Ugaritic and Biblical Rephaim," Harvard Theological Review, 67(1974): 270-271.

Note 43. Conrad L'Heureux, Rephaim, 271. Cf. 272, footnote 25, the authority of El is ordinarily exercised through the younger generation of gods whom we could call the executive deities. It is also possible to understand the term rp'm as "the assembly of the gods." The entire premise of Jacobsen's article "Primitive Democracy," is that the groups and assemblies on earth reflected what the gods had done in heaven.

Amos 5:4 For thus saith the Lord unto the house of Israel, SEEK ye me, and ye shall live: [House, family, Laity excluding Priests or Levites.]
Amos 5:5 But seek not Bethel, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beersheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nought.

For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the HOUSE of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment,
        but behold oppression;
for righteousness,
        but behold a cry. Isaiah 5:7

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. Eze 33:30

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

In Amos we see that these were religious festivals where musicians performed IN the temple

My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to listen to your words,
        but they do not put them into practice.

With their mouths they express devotion (Lord, Lord as amorousness - inordinate love),
      but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain ...... ...... (commerce or trade or attendance). Eze 33:31

THEY 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,

    and their honourable men are famished,
    and their multitude dried up with thirst. Isaiah 5:13

Indeed, to them you are NOTHING MORE
        than one who sings love songs
        (minstrel as a prostitute) with a beautiful voice

and [NOTHING MORE than one who]
        plays (make melody on) an instrument well,

for they hear your words
         but do NOT put them into practice. Eze 33:32

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 [music!] is brought down to the graves,

    and the NOISE of thy VIOLS: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms [maggots] cover thee. Is.14:11

When all this comes true--and it surely will--then they will know that a PROPHET has been among them." Eze 33:33

Son of man, prophesy AGAINST the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God unto the shepherds; Woe be to the     shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves
    should not the shepherds FEED the flocks? Eze 34:2
Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a FAMINE in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of HEARING the WORDS of the Lord:

I will review the NEVER-MUSICAL passages in Ephesians and Colossians and post them in:

The New Day Church as the product of a multi million dollar scheme promised 100,000 new "daughter" groups within 30 years.
It's "Cast Vision" defined other congregations as practicing

Churchianity Versus Christianity
Church Members Versus Disciples

A New Day Christianity denied all of the Biblical and Historical Practices of Legalistics and Sectarians.
Following the Progressive Pattern which got a new vision which is the opposite of the Church or Assembly of Christ. It got the "message" to Rewrite Scripture as Jesus would have taught it if He had the benefit of modern Theology.

Those who are Disciples and honor the Church for which Jesus Died understand that the inspired writers did not use any 'empty' words or concepts.  For instance, a disciple will understand that "don't get drunk on wine which IS excess

his is defined as Sorcery:

Clement of Alexandria Exhortation to the Heathen

For such are the begging priests of Cybele. Hence Antisthenes replies appropriately to their request for alms:-

"I do not maintain the mother of the gods,
For the gods maintain her."

Again, the same writer of comedy, expressing his dissatisfaction with the common usages,
        tries to expose the impious arrogance of the prevailing error in the drama of the
Priestess, sagely declaring:-

"If a man drags the Deity
Whither he will by the sound of cymbals,
He that does this is greater than the Deity;
But these are the instruments of audacity and means of living
Invented by men."
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.
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.

Recount to us also the useless oracles of that other kind of divination, or rather madness, the Clarian, the Pythian, the Didymaean, that of Amphiaraus, of Apollo, of Amphilochus; and if you will, couple ("deprive of their holiness," "no longer count holy." Eusebius reads: "unholy interpreters." )

Apollo is the Biblical Abaddon or Apollyon.

Ask: How many times is there a PRESCRIPTION (never a command) to SING Scripture?

But does this include the land? Yes, indeed. As Paul phrases it, Abraham was the “heir of the world” (kosmos)….not just the land of Palestine (Romans 4:13). The inheritance of the children of Abraham is the world–the whole cosmos.  [The Kosmos is the Ecumenical is the kingdom of the Devil making war against the INVISIBLE Kingdom of Christ and the Word which says."

Austin.Graduate.School.of.Theology Keith Stanglin, John Mark Hicks Saying that God came in the FLESH is AntiChrist. Saying that Jesus was God He defines as Blasphemy. You cannot graduate in Theology without taking these and other MARKS.

The Sudden rise of people claiming to have discovered GRACE follows directly on the sudden rise of rhetorical, theatrical or musical Advanced Scholars confessing to violating Scripture and Sowing Discord.  Their understanding of grace is that God will let us get away with it. However, GRACE (in the same category of Word, Spirit, Life, Light) LIBERATES when it TEACHES what has been revealed.
