Royce Money ACU The Church?

ACUPresident Royce Money noted that the university was founded in 1906, the sameyear — coincidentally — that a federal religious census first reported the acappella and instrumental churches as separate bodies. - See more at: http://www.christianchronicle.org/article/acu-lectures-promote-spirit-of-fellowship#sthash.RPgnBSuQ.dpuf
ACUPresident Royce Money noted that the university was founded in 1906, the sameyear — coincidentally — that a federal religious census first reported the acappella and instrumental churches as separate bodies.
“Theoriginal purpose of our movement was to be nondenominational Christians only,”Money said in a message on truth, grace and unity from the Gospel of John.
“Aftera period of an unprecedented spirit of unity and mutual acceptance in the firsthalf of the 19th century, we certainly have had our share of conflicts anddivisions … especially in the decades following the Civil War,” the ACUpresident said.
Headded: “But in this dawning of the 21st century, there is a renewed spirit ofunity among us — not for merging or for giving up long-held religiousconvictions that historically have divided us. Rather, it is a spirit offellowship, of conversation, of reconciliation between estranged brothers andsisters.” - See more at: http://www.christianchronicle.org/article/acu-lectures-promote-spirit-of-fellowship#sthash.RPgnBSuQ.dpuf

12.22.13 Revised: Royce Mooney: “The original purpose of our movement was to be nondenominational Christians only,” Money said in a message on truth, grace and unity from the Gospel of John.

That's a lie if he means as his staff agrees that Campbell wanted UNITY with the SECTS.  He said that there must be baptized Christians in all of the SECTS and if so they should come out of Babylon.  He called the Disciples-Christians a SECT because he said they only showed how people could be DIVIDED.

In John 17 God the Father Breathed (Spirit) without metron or METER and Jesus as Son SPOKE the WORD  or Logos as the Articulator of God.
That God to the Speaker guaranteed unity between the One God Almighty and Jesus of Nazareth Whom God made to be both Lord and Christ.

A Son of God or the Apostles SPOKE only what  they Heard from Jesus who said that "My WORDS are SPIRIT and they are Life."  Jesus said that if you as a LITTLE FLOCK speak that Word or Logos the world will hate, despise, reject and even murder you.  The Word or Logos is called the Regulative Principle and OUTLAWS self-preachers (sons of the Devil, said Jesus), singers, instrument players, actors or anything but elders as the ONLY Pastor Teachers "speaking that which has been taught" and "booting out those who do NOT speak that which has been taught."

It is a lie: Jesus said there must be Christians (baptized Disciples or student) in all of the SECTS and if so they should "come out of Babylon." He defined the Disciples-Christian Churches SECTS because they could only do what DIVIDES people.

Royce Mooney:  “After a period of an unprecedented spirit of unity and mutual acceptance in the first half of the 19th century, we certainly have had our share of conflicts and divisions … especially in the decades following the Civil War,” the ACU president said.

A few men "shook hands" in 1832 agreeing on the principles demanded by the Reformers or Churches of Christ: the Disciples violated the agreement before the ink got dry.  BEFORE 1832 Alexander Campbell denied that there COULD be any unity with the Christians. After 1832 he again denied that there WAS or could be unity based on the Stoneite rejection of all that Churches of Christ now believe including the Atonement.

Any FRATERNAL agreement ended in 1849 when the Disciples-Christians fell for the Millerite prophecy that Jesus would return in 1844: the Disciples formed their first society and went to Palestine because THEY had to save all of the Jews to ENABLE Jesus to return in a premillenial sense. It turns out that the Jews did not want to be saved and they would be worse off having to join polytheists.  Alexander Campbell added the Millennial Harbinger to refute ALL earthly reigns of Christ. 

Royce Mooney:  He added: “But in this dawning of the 21st century, there is a renewed spirit of unity among us — not for merging or for giving up long-held religious convictions that historically have divided us. Rather, it is a spirit of fellowship, of conversation, of reconciliation between estranged brothers and sisters.”


That's a lie:  The Christian Church SECTED OUT of the Disciples finally in the 1971 census.  Leroy Garrett founded the Stone-Campbell Movement sowing of discord and promoted the UNITY meetings which always meant that the Christian Churches were Purpose Driven to take over the members and property of those they call ANTI-instrumental Sectarians.  The meetings facilitated by ACU has been a joint effort of the NACC with the ACU people becoming DUPED and "letting our youth experience lots of instrumental bands (an oxymoron blasphemy) to Teach Our Your to Leave Our Movement.

Royce Mooney: While church scholars disagree on whether the Bible allows only a cappella singing, the Lectureship underscored the fact that many members are re-evaluating the issue. Even steadfast opponents of instrumental music acknowledge that.

No scholar or anyone who had ever read Acts 7 would even hallucinate using Musical Instruments in what Christ in the wilderness and the Campbells restored as:

Church is A School of Christ: Disciples are washed with water INTO the Word or into the School of Christ
Worship is Reading and Musing the Word of God.

All other STAFF are called FUNGUS or in all ceremonial legalistic worship services called PARASITES.
  1. The Spirit OF Christ in the prophets calls Lucifer a singing and harp-playing prostitute.
  2. Jesus as SPIRIT defined the end-time Babylon Mother of harlots.  She still uses 'lusted after fruits' as self-speakers, singers, instrument players and ALL craftsmen.  He said that the sounds of God driving His enemies into "hell" are the wind, string and percussion instruments that Lucifer brought into the Garden of Eden
  3. That is why MASSES spilled out of Rick Atchley's hostile takeover and church of Christ students from most "universities.
  4. Worship Androgyny the Pagan Sexual Ideal
  5. John says that all of the Instrumental SORCERERS will be cast alive into the Lake of Fire.
Armageddon is not a war of the world but a war of words: a polemic war with shock and awe as the meaning of mechanical Organon used by Jubal's family to bring on the first destruction.

Great tribulation flaunting "the holiness of sin" has accompanied the loss of faith at the end of each DAY period.

Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation,
        such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved:
         but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
Matthew 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets,
        and shall shew great signs and wonders;
        insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

A million Jews were cast into Tophet (tabret, tambourine) at the first fulfilment. Not one DISCIPLE of Christ was "burned" and the Jews are still looking for their Levites and the tens of thousands of HARPS which according to the Babylonian Prophetic type were "cast alive with their harps along with the king" 

The Spirit OF (preposition) Christ defines the Church in the Wilderness and the future REST after the Jew's Covenant with Death and Hell had been annulled with only a tiny remnant of faithful Jews:

Madison as the result of the "Jubilee" intending to restructure ALL Churches of Christ was attacked by the Purpose Driven Cult and it appears that the godly elect were "raptured."  This is the end of the road for the Vision 20/20s in most of the assaulted churches of Christ.  Before the Jubilee "frog-boiling" process began Madison boasted that they had over 5000 members and lost only "50": These numbers did and may include 300 members in jail.

THE KINGDOM OF GOD DOES NOT COME WITH RELIGIOUS "OBSERVATIONS" AND THE WARNING IS STILL IN EFFECT

Matthew 24:25 Behold, I have told you before.
Matthew 24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you,
        Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth:
        behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
Matthew 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west;
         so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Matthew 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days
        shall the sun be darkened,
        and the moon shall not give her light,  [Bible replaced by Theology fit for OUR CHANGED CULTURE.]
        and the stars shall fall from heaven,    [The lucifer or ZOE types]
        and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Matthew 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
        and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn,
        and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Matthew 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet,
        and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
ALL of the SOUNDS-LIKE INSTRUMENT PASSAGES war of JUDGMENT and commands the godly--be they ever so scare--to GO and preach the gospel to ALL nations.

The Purpose Driven Locusts or MUSES are to COLLECT all of those with the MARK into large Mega-Groups and the GODLY will evaporate as if by magic. Rick Atchleys boasted of 6400 shrank to about 3500 counting both the MOTHER church and the DAUGHTER churches.  They have collected back up to about 4500 by SOUNDING THE TRUMPETS AND THE LOCUSTS-MUSES as Abaddon the Musical Worship Leader.

It is a fact that some of the noiser faculty and preachers claim to be a Member of The Church of Christ which would demand that they teach only what Christ taught in the Prophets and Apostles.  It is a fact that these pseudo scholars work as hard as they can to subject members to "instrumental bands to teach our youth to leave our movement.  There is no denominational college who would tolerate a faculty member disloyal to the Baptist Church or to their view of Scripture.  The college was founded by and for members of the Church of Christ.  However, in these end time men who missed ETHICS 101A boast about infiltrating and diverting Churches of Christ as dupes of the NACC which buys them for a few bits of flattry.

Royce Money is the President of ACU. Does not grasp the FOUNDATION Rock on which the church of Christ is built.

As co-editor of Wineskins brother Cope published Andre Resner's vulgar article characterizing the Lord's mother as "another sexually questionable woman." In the April 1993 issue of Wineskins Cope wrote an especially shameful piece entitled "Cheers: A Minister's Fantasy Ending." This was shocking because Cheers glamorized illicit sex and perversity from its debut in 1983 through the final episode in 1993.

Apparently the Fifth and Highland elders (including Royce Money, president of ACU; Randy Becton and Glen Owen, of the Herald of Truth) approve brother Cope's writing and sermonizing. Resource

In recent letters addressed to Royce Money, president of Abilene Christian University; Jack Reese, chairman of the department of graduate Bible and ministry at ACU; and Ian Fair, dean of the College of Biblical Studies at ACU, fawn before the president, diminish themselves, deceive the board, and insult a trusting brotherhood as they undertake the defense of the indefensible.

The matter at issue, again, is the infamous Resner article denying the virgin birth of the Son of God. In the November 1992 issue of Wineskins magazine Andre Resner calls Matthew "sneaky" and says Mary was "another sexually questionable woman." Resner, an ACU professor, compares the virgin mother of the Lord to two adulteresses and a prostitute. he asks, "Why should not Messiah be born of similar circumstances?

Resner explains, according to the Fair statement, he was writing to those born after 1945. He did not realize that some of us born before 1945 would read the article. He claims that he wrote in a style and manner baby boomers would understand but that would offend older brothers and sisters

Several baby boomers have told me they understand "sexually questionable" to mean "sexually questionable." How odd! Resource

See Rubel Shelly and John York (David Lipscomb) compare Mary to Cherokee Sal, the prostitute of Roaring Camp and Jesus to the bastard.

A question of basic morality and morality. Review of Royce Money.

One of the vital reasons to RESTORE first century Christianity is that it was the POINT IN TIME WHEN Christ left His Full Glory on the "Throne" and dwelled in a man of flesh. God came into the physical world, not as another pagan religionists, but The Only Spiritual Teacher. The SPIRIT or THE WORD OF CHRIST or THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN was the ONLY RESOURCE for teaching or preaching (singing) in the church to instill the Word into the HEART. Paul said that the way to GLORIFY GOD with ONE VOICE is to use THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN.

See Review by J. E. Choate.

The church of Christ is built, not on a confession of Peter but, on the fact that Jesus as God Incarnate is the promised Messiah Who would silence the "songs in the temples" and be the ONE MASTER TEACHER using His Written Word which is SPIRIT just as His Human body contained Father and Spirit. What He built was not a church but a synagogue or school of the Bible. After all, He sent men out to MAKE DISCIPLES and not ritualistic worshippers.

"Dr. Royce Money is the President of ACU. In connection with the 75th Annual ACU Lectureship in 1993, Dr. Money delivered an address entitled "On this Rock I will Build My Church." A transcript of the address was widely published by ACU, and was even included as a paid advertising insert in the May, 1993, edition of the Christian Chronicle. The following excerpts are from ACU's published transcript of Money's address:

"Often I have read this passage [Matthew 16:13-18], and every time I find myself wondering what Jesus had in mind when he said 'church.' When Jesus promised to build his church on the confession of his Lordship, I wonder what he envisioned for his people, when he referred to 'my church.'" Quoted from Eric Hall

Maybe someone would tell Royce Money that Jesus never said: I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH. The word is ekklesia which in the Greek Old Testament (LXX) is translated synagogue.

Jesus identified his SONSHIP role as to teach only what He heard from the Father within. The command was not to go build a worship center but to MAKE DISCIPLES. That means to make students of the word. He would take care of adding them to the church. The apostles went out "laying the foundation" by preaching the Word "as it had been taught." Therefore, Jesus says in many ways that the SOLID BASE of being a disciple is His Word which is SPIRIT and LIFE.

If we established a School of Homer we would insult Homer if we made up our own poems. Homer's teaching is the foundation of learning about Homer and the ancient world.

What He said was "I will build my ekklesia" or SYNAGOGUE: A school of the Bible and not just another pagan, music-dominated WORSHIP CENTER:

Ekklesia (g1577) ek-klay-see'-ah; from a comp. of 1537 and a der. of 2564; a calling out, i.e. (concr.) a popular meeting, espec. a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Chr. community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both): - assembly, church.

But, why did God have to come in the flesh? Because NO MAN can teach other than to "teach that which has been taught" and is able to say: "Thus saith the Lord." Christ did not die for musical worship or obscene, burden- lading programs.

Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey. And the Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment. Isa 59:15

And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him. Isa 59:16

So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him. Isa 59:19

And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord. Isa 59:20

So, God built His BIBLE TEACHING EKKLESIA by the use of His ARM. The Arm was also the ROCK which is the only foundation. The ekklesia or assembly or synagogue is built on JESUS CHRIST as the manifestation of God to be our ONE AND ONLY TEACHER.

The OLD COVENANT was devoted to animal sacrifices with MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS as a type of sacrificing Jesus Christ Who was sacrificed with LEVITICAL WARRIOR MUSIC TO MOCK.

The next step of the temple would be the Holy Place. It typified the Communion Table of bread (of life and fellowship), the Menorah or seven-spirits of Christ which are not "little men" but the spirits OF Divine knowledge. Finally, the incense altar represented our PERSONAL prayers by which we can enter the MOST HOLY PLACE and "come boldly before the throne of Grace." One at a time if you please without any Levitical singers or musicians.

Jesus said that OUR PERSONAL SPIRIT is the only place God seeks our worship and teaches us with the SPIRIT OF TRUTH.

As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord;
My spirit that is upon thee,
and my words which I have put in thy mouth,
shall not depart out of thy mouth,
nor out of the mouth of thy seed,
nor out of the mouth of thy seeds seed, saith the Lord,
from henceforth and for ever. Isa 59:21

"This is my covenant." Can you grasp it? Not if you lie about NOT using musical instruments makes one a SECTARIAN in an evil sense. However, the meaning of Ekklesia is that Christ CALLS OUT people from the pagan atmosphere. Furthermore, he places our citizenship in heaven. NO CHRISTIAN, therefore, can make a fetish and a FORTUNE out of insisting that we "become as much like the world as possible."

The SPIRIT which is the Spirit OF Truth is in the words of Jesus (John 6:63). Jesus warned that Doctors of the Law "take away the KEY to knowledge." That KEY is the Word revealed and written by eyewitnesses.

Today is exactly like the period when the WORD had been taken away from people and they "hungered and thirsted for the water of the Word" but they never found it: the RELIGIONISTS were hiding it behind SECTARIAN MUSICAL rituals imposed on them because of the MUSICAL IDOLATRY at Mount Sinai.

HEAR YE the CREDO of ACU. Try to ignore that the outlawed doctors of the law CREATED the questions and GAVE THEM WINGS:

Carrol D. Osburn: On pages 14-15 we read: "With so many questions flying around and so much uncertainty being expressed in various quarters, what an opportunity for the various faculties of our Christian colleges and universities to help shape the future! These are the best of times to be involved in Christian education! If we are to have a truly significant impact upon the national and international scene, faculties of religion must play

leading prophetic roles in channeling and facilitating whatever changes loom ahead.

An outdated curriculum from a sectarian past that placed emphasis upon transmitting doctrinaire positions will not suffice if we would engage convincingly the larger arenas of current religious thought...

Our graduate programs must train students how to think, to investigate the biblical text afresh,

to feel the pulse of the world around them,
to
sense where things ought to go,
and
provide the kind of experiences that will enable servants to go out into churches and communities and provide direction. Hall

We will post some notes on Carol D. Osburn to show that these BEYOND THE SACRED PAGE claims are code words. The word CHANNEL is supported by the claim to have the personal SPIRIT PERSON who informs them beyond the Word. Channeling as with the witch of Endor also has musical roots.

Duh? You probably thought that Lord Jesus Christ, Full Deity and the Holy Spirt was providing that! But THEY (The Family of God) cannot do that if they have been fired and THEIR word "sifted through philosophy and the writer's own personal agenda."

But, The Spirit is in the words if you read them and have not been BLINDED by God because you do not love the Truth. (Matthew 13)

ACU claims to train prophtes, channelers and facilitators. The "serpent" in the garden was such a smooth- talker who was a FALSE PROPHET. His name does not indicate a SNAKE but a "MUSICAL ENCHANTER." Throughout the Old Testament SATAN or LUCIFER works as a "harp- playing prostitute." And the END- TIMES prophesies of the same serpent.

But, you remember that Jesus fired THE DOCTORS OF THE LAW. And Paul warned about the SUPER apostles who had been trained as sophists who among Jewish prophets were the first to charge for their services:

The HUPER apostles of 2 Cor 11:5; 12:11 are:

huperlian, Adv. beyond measure, exceedingly, sophos Eust.1396.42; to hu. Id.1184.18 ; hoi hu. apostoloi the 'super-Apostles', 2 Ep.Cor. 11.5, 12.11.

The HUPER apostles take pay from the taught even when they don't believe what they are teaching.

Sophos: properly, skilled in any handicraft or art, cunning in his CRAFT, of POETS and MUSICIANS, SOOTHSAYERS, SOPHISTS, etc.

ophis-teia, sophistry, mantikę, of Balaam, mantikę means divination, soothsayer

Remember that SOPHIA was the "serpent" and ZOE was the beast and female instructing principle. "Accordingly the skill of the Sophists degenerated into mere TECHNIcalities and complete absence of reason, and became absolutely contemptible."

Playto, Cratylus says

"the part of appropriative, coercive, hunting art which hunts animals, land animals, tame animals, man, privately, FOR PAY, is paid in CASH, claims to GIVE education, and is a hunt after rich and promising youths, must--so our present argument concludes--be called SOPHISTRY.

Read Clement defining the SOPHISTS.

There is a great crowd of this description: some of them, enslaved to pleasures and willing to disbelieve, laugh at the truth which is worthy of all reverence, making sport of its barbarousness. Some others, exalting themselves, endeavour to discover calumnious objections to our words, furnishing captious questions, hunters out of paltry sayings, practisers of miserable artifices, wranglers, dealers in knotty points, as that Abderite says:-

"For mortals' tongues are glib, and on them are many speeches;
And a wide range for words of all sorts in this place and that."

And-

"Of whatever sort the word you have spoken, of the same sort you must hear."

Inflated with this art of theirs, the wretched Sophists, babbling away in their own jargon; toiling their whole life about the division of names and the nature of the composition and conjunction of sentences, show themselves greater chatterers than turtle-doves; scratching and tickling, not in a manly way, in my opinion, the ears of those who wish to be tickled.

"A river of silly words-not a dropping; "

just as in old shoes, when all the rest is worn and is falling to pieces, and the tongue alone remains. The Athenian Solon most excellently enlarges, and writes:-

"Look to the tongue, and to the words of the gazing man,
But you look on no work that has been done;
But each one of you walks in the steps of a fox,
And in all of you is an empty mind."

And John wrote (that is why he must be discounted in postmodernism).

For without are dogs (sodomites), and SORCERERS, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and MAKETH a LIE. Re.22:15

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

Angels are Ev-angel-ists: Yes, most of them belong to Satan in every age:

Ophis (g3789) of'-is; prob. from 3700 (through the idea of sharpness of vision); a snake, fig. (as a type of sly cunning) an artful malicious person, espec. Satan: - serpent.

Optanomai (g3700)... to gaze (i.e. with wide-open eyes, as at something remarkable; to stare at in amazement: can't take your eyes off the apparition which John identified as fallen angels.

Would you be surprised that unfaithful preachers--sophists--who can overwhelm a group and make them believe a lie as an ANGEL OF LIGHT is not quite of the human species. Wait until we see that the Greeks defined SINGERS or professional Psalm Singers as PARASITES.

sophos

I. properly, skilled in any handicraft or art, cunning in his craft, Theogn., etc; of a charioteer, Pind.; of poets and musicians, id=Pind.; of a soothsayer, Soph., etc.

They are the craftsman (techne) of Revelation 18 who will go back into hell with the musicians and instrumentalists. They are also pictured as the end-time Locusts or grasshoppers or cicadae sent to separate the MARKS and torture.

Musician

ôidos , ho for aoidos, singer, chręsmôn, meta Lesbion ôidon (Lesbion singer), prov. of a second-rate musician, Cratin.243, cf. Arist.Fr.545; hoi tou Dionusou ôi. Pl.Lg.812b ; chorous tinas . . ôidous ib.800e; of cicadae (twanging), hoi huper kephalęs

II. the cup passed round when a scolion was sung, Antiph.85.2, cf. Tryphoap.Ath.11.503d.

What Osburn has in mind is the view of Baptism FOR the remission of sins which worked prior to Zwingli who in 1515 decreed that all of church history was wrong: now it is FAITH ONLY. The Baptists CHANGED the view held en toto and therefore were the SECTARIANS.

However, the best articulation of Faith Only by Martin Luther sees people as maniacs who believe that FAITH does not need to have an object which to him was baptism.

But as our would-be wise, new spirits assert that faith alone saves, and that works and external things avail nothing, Luther See more on Faith Only heresy.

The other mental problem, which is like a Lucifer thorn in the flesh, of carnal men is that churches have existed for these 2,000 years under the name "the church of Christ" although usually apostate at some level. However, there is no historical information which does not REPUDIATE music and especially instruments in the church. The view held en toto forever among Babtists and Presbyterians and most Methodists opposed music based on BIBLICAL GROUNDS. Because churches of Christ did not ADD INSTRUMENTS to deliberately sow discord, it is RANK DISHONESTY to call them SECTARIANS for refusing to do what they had never done.

The totality of Biblical and Historical Data proves that MUSIC WAS OF SATAN. He/She came into the garden of Eden with wind, string and percussion instruments. His/her breastplate had eleminated the tribes which would be faithful to God.

Those who added instruments without trying for Biblical authority until 1878 deliberately SOWED DISCORD and became MUSICAL SECTARIANS. But postmoderns CANNOT and have no need to TELL the truth.

Rubel Shelly claims to have received NEW GLASSES through which he has a NEW VISION for the church. Now that is channeling in the style of Joseph Smith.

But, this was the problem when MEN (Pharisees etc, professional profits for pay) made it dangerous for honest people to seek to peek into the Word of God which the priests refused to teach.

Therefore, Jesus as the ROCK with the KEY<!===Royce Money, Ophis, Serpent, Sophist====>

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. Luke 11:52

Do you wonder why the DOCTORS OF THE LAW claim exclusive rights to train shock troups to go out and spread the NEW "peep-stone Joe's" glasses? Remember the SPIRIT in Isaiah 11 was not a little man living inside to make you hallucinate that you were getting a NEW VISION.

The doctors of the law deliberately HID the SPIRIT which is the Spirit of Knowledge in various forms.

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

To repudiate the Spirit Words is "blasphemy against the Holy Spirit" whose personal name is Jesus or Joshua or Jehovah- Saved.

THE WOMAN AT THE WELL MEETING JESUS CHRIST THE ROCK WHO PROVIDES SPIRITUAL WATER.

Jesus told us that worship was not in the old PLACES of rituals. Worship can ONLY take place where God decides to meet us. That is the HUMAN SPIRIT as it gives heed to God. GIVE HEED is the primary worship word for Paul.

Jesus told the woman at the well, in effect, that he was the ROCK out of which flowed LIVING WATERS. The woman at the well--more educated than a secular Phd-- knew that when Messiah came it was not to build another institution. Rather He came as the revealer of truth.

The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come,
........... he will tell us all things. John 4:25
........... Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he. John 4:26

His CORE message is that Christians CANNOT worship in temples made by human hands. He established a synagogue or school of the Bible. However, our worship is IN OUR SPIRIT devoted to HIS WORD or Truth.

Did you hear that: many people including some apostles were certain that Jesus came to build an INSTITUTION. And people could aspire to sit at the right of the pulpit, at the left of the pulpit and AT the pulpit by removing the promised presence of Jesus Christ when we gather by twos and threes. HE personally teaches us just as He did in the first century if we READ His words and discuss them.

The woman, in effect, made the same confession Peter made: remember that the prostitutes were more capable of heeding the command to be baptized than the DOCTORS.

THE CONFESSION OF PETER WAS THE CONFESSION THAT JESUS SPOKE AS GOD

And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. Matt 16:16
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona:
........... for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee,
........... but my Father which is in heaven. Matt 16:17

The KEY WORD here is that God the Father through God the Son came to REVEAL Jesus Christ. Jesus explains His "sonship" as speaking only what He heard from the "Father" within. He defined as devils those "who seak on their own."

Jesus conditionally promised the Samaritan woman water from the flinty Rock as the KEY to knowledge and therefore the KEY to the kingdom. She anticipated Messiah as "He shall teach us all things." She grasped the KEY even as prostitutes grasped it faster than doctors of the Law or the professional WORD CHANGERS the Pharisees who MUDDIED the free water from the ROCK and sold them a MODERN HERMENEUTIC.

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter (a piece of rock),
........... and upon this rock I will build my church (Ekklesia);
........... and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Matt 16:18

Petra (g4073) pet'-ra; fem. of the same as 4074; a (mass of) rock (lit. or figurative): - rock.

Jesus is the ROCK throughout the Bible because HE is the Living God made manifest in many figures of supplying, guiding, feeding, satisfying thirst or teaching.

And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Mt.16:19

THE ONLY HISTORICAL CONNECTION WITH THE GATES OF HELL PROVES THAT JESUS WAS REPUDIATING THE JEWISH WORSHIP WHICH WAS AFFLICTED WITH BABYLONIAN HARLOT WORSHIP. MUSIC WAS THE KEY TO THE MAGICAL POWERS WHICH INANNA STOLE FROM THE PATRON GOD OF MUSIC.

The national or Goyim (gowy) worship which Israel demanded when they fired God was the worship of the MOTHER GODDESS.

The MOTHER OF THE GODS as a deified Eve, Zoe, Mary, Ishtar, Semiramis etc., always stands on top of the LION. In the baptism of Jesus, the DOVE representing the MOTHER OF THE GODS in paganism rests on the head of the SON and He is identified by a Father and not a mother.

Inanna goes through the SEVEN GATES OF HELL and is forced to abandon her precious stones. As LUCIFER 3 of the 12 stones of the breastplate were represented by string instruments, wind instruments and percussion instruments. These represent the faithful remnant tribes.

Notice that the Goddess is always pictured with her feet on the lion as in the "Lion of the tribe of Judah."

INANNA, THE HOLY PROSTITUTE OF BABYLON

THE HOLY PROSTITUTE IN EGYPT: DOMINATING THE TRUE LION

In Egypt, a goddess named Qedeshu, Lady of Kadesh (Syria), was worshiped in the 19th and 20th dynasties (1292-c. 1075 BC). Her representation is found on private stelae of middle-class workers. She is shown nude, posed frontally on a lioness (or a leopard), holding arrows in her hands. Although Israelite prophets and reformers repeatedly denounced sacred prostitution, the early Israelites seem to have adopted the local Canaanite rites, which they apparently practiced publicly until the reform of King Josiah about 621 BC. Britannica

The singers which plagued Jerusalem were identified as prostitutes, and the musicians were identified as Sodomites. Miriam meaning "bitter and rebellious" pretended that she was a prophetess of Jehovah. However, she got smacked with a case of leprosy for her trouble. Miriam of the royal Egyptian household would have been a prophetess of Hathor:

Hathor as Qadesh the Syrian fertility goddess with phallic Min. Note the Hathor crown and headdress. She stands on a lion, holding a serpent and ears of grain (Graves 1946, Pritchard 1954)

And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. Revelation 5:4

And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. Revelation 5:5

The KEYS to the Gates of Hell were included within the ME or INSTRUCTIONS for carrying out the rituals of the Babylonian Whore religion. Some of these are:

Enki raised his cup and toasted Inanna a second time:
"In the name of my power! In the name of my holy shrine!
To my daughter Inanna I shall give Truth!
Descent into the underworld!
Ascent from the underworld!
The art of lovemaking!
The art of kissing the phallus!"
He gave me the holy shrine.
He gave me the holy priestess of heaven.
He gave me the resounding musical instrument.
He gave me the art of song.
He gave me the art of the elder.

HERE IS HOW THE SAME BABYLON-DERIVED AND SATAN-FILLED PROSTITUTE SOLD JESUS CHRIST WITH THE PROPHESIED INSTRUMENTS VIZUALIZED IN ART

Yes, the flute is derived from a word similar to "halal" and includes play the flute, pollute and prostitute. While a male phallic symbol, if you will look closely you will see the vulva attached.

See Enoch to see why ten-thousand angels will come to defeat the end-time Babylonian religion (Rev. 18).

JESUS DID NOT BUILD HIS EKKLESIA OR SYNAGOGUE OR SCHOOL OF HEAVENLY KNOWLEDGE ON EITHER PETER OR HIS CONFESSION.

As one of the KEYS or ME Christ as God did not give Peter (masculine) the key of music and homosexual love which always went together in old or new pagan worship.

First, we should understand that there is NO flesh and blood who can reveal the truth but only Christ the Holy Spirit.

Superstitious people understood that if the pagan gods were supposed to live in a ROCKS, Jehovah who was the One and only True El, could be said to be the True Rock because He could bring forth water and deliver His Word to mankind without having to spend a night sleeping on a rock table. The Babylonians believed that the gods or demons lived inside of rocks and wind instruments and were its source of power. However, Yahweh is our source of breath and power:

"Another type of simulacrum is where inanimate matter (wood, minerals, rocks etc.) animate or appear to take the form of life-forms. Nature has created a plethora of these images in rock formations. I have studied and photographed these simulacra in Britain and other parts of the World. Many I have found bear striking resemblance to the deities and animals that were venerated in these places, which is why I have called them the 'Gods in the Rocks'

The God is my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. 2 Samuel 22:3 

And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 1 Corinthians 10:4

Proven as the sinful woman could grasp: Jesus builds His synagogue on the spiritual drink which flows out of the ROCK upon which it is built. A true church will have a CANDLESTICK into which flows OIL and out of which flows THE WATER OF THE WORD or light. When the water is cut off or restrained, Jesus visits us to REMOVE THE CANDLESTICK and the water.

Therefore, Christ is the ROCK and He is God- Manifest or Son

But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. John 4:14

Amos 5; 6 and 8 along with Isaiah 5 proves that the MUSICAL RELIGIOUS FESTIVALS abandoned the WORD OF GOD. As a result, people wandered all over the country looking for the WATER OF THE WORD but they died and went into captivity. The LUST to merge ecumenically with false teachers is CAUSING people to die while they are "entertained" or better yet, "stung with locust tails like scorpions" as the MARK of lostness.

Jesus the ROCK said that His WORD gave Spirit and Life:

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

Even the sinful woman understood the PURPOSE of the coming of Christ:

Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. John 4:25

God is not three Gods but fills Many Spiritual Roles

The God is my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. 2 Samuel 22:3 

By putting this passage in table form it becomes clear that God is not made up of six co-equal members of the Godhead called Rock, Shield, Horn, High Tower, Refuge and Savior:


Rock

The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.  2 Samuel 23:3 
---And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 1 Corinthians 10:4 (Christ ia always evident in the O.T.)


Shield

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Psalm 91:4 
---Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Ephesians 6:16

God is my

Horn

And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; Luke1:69


High Tower

Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. Ephesians 4:8


Refuge

O Lord, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. Jeremiah 16:19


Savior

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.  Matthew 1:21
  


My Rock

The Lord is (is One God but also in form of)

My Fortress and


My Deliverer  2 Samuel 22:2

Notice another trinity manifestation of the One Lord God.

The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me, And His word was on my tongue. 2 Samuel 23:2

The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.  2 Samuel 23:3

In another passage we see five "beings" or "persons" speaking if we are inclined to ignore symbolic language. But for the NEW THOUGHT LEADERS AT ACU the ROCK SPEAKS and refused to sing and dance when Rabbinic University PIPED the perverted Dionysus music.

Scoffs Psalm 2:4NIV

Psalm 18 says

I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. Psalm 18:1

The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Psalm 18:2

I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved

For who is God (Elowah) save the Lord (Jehovah)? or who is a rock save our God (Elohim)? Psalm 18:31

And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 1 Corinthians 10:4

The SEVEN SPIRITS of God prophesied in Isaiah 11 and fulfilled when the DOVE pronounced Jesus the SON of a FATHER God (repudiating the feminist mother godesses) would rest on the BRANCH. God's spiritual kingdom or SCHOOL OF THE BIBLE would also rest on the BRANCH.

Zechariah said of the Branch:

It is he who will build the temple of the LORD, and
he will be clothed with majesty and
........... 1. will sit and rule on his throne. And he
........... 2. will be a priest on his throne. And
........... there will be harmony between the two.' Zechariah 6:13

PAUL UNDERSTOOD THAT BUILDING THE CHURCH WAS BUILDING CHRIST'S SYNAGOGUE

Thomas Campbell called the church THE SCHOOL OF CHRIST. Worship consisted of reading the word and discussing it.

For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Eph 2:18

Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; Eph 2:19

And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; Eph 2:20

This is objective: the foundation which the apostles and prophets laid. Also as the first STONES added to the temple they are like all others continually laid.

In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: Eph 2:21

In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit. Eph 2:22

It is totally irrational to try to invent a new PATTERNISM which includes pagan music and any thing which "produces spiritual anxiwty through religious ritual." Christ died to remove the DOCTORS OF THE LAW from off our backs and give us REST. You can rest in a synagogue of the Bible and even meet with diverse minds. But, you cannot make church into the NEW STYLE WORSHIP which is "channelling in" from the towers of Babylon.

Paul defined "worship" exactly as Thomas Campbell defined it. His word is to GIVE HEED to Christ by GIVING HEED to His Word. Paul told Timothy to "Give attendance to the (daily) reading of the word, to exhortation to doctrine." He told Timothy nothing about MUSIC because the "singing" involved in the SYNAGOGUE is the inspired word of God--the Spirit of Christ in the prophets.

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 or spirit building) Rom 15:2

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

To please ourselves is the SPIRITUAL anxiety created by the religious rituals of Romans 14.

Aresko (g700) ar-es'-ko; prob. from 142 (through the idea of exciting emotion)

This word is derived from:

Airo (g142) ah'ee-ro; a prim. verb; to lift; by impl. to take up or away; figurative to raise the voice, keep in suspense (the mind); spec. to sail away (i.e. weigh anchor); by Heb. [comp. 5375] to expiate sin: - away with, bear (up), carry, lift up, loose, make to doubt, put away, remove, take (away, up).

The BURDEN laded by the Jewish clergy and which Jesus Christ removed is:

Phortizo (g5412) for-tid'-zo; from 5414; to load up (prop. as a vessel or animal), i.e. (fig.) to overburden with ceremony or spiritual anxiety: - lade, be heavy laden.

The NEW STYLE WORSHIP which the book writers have discovered understands that there are a lot fewer CHURCH OF CHRIST book buyers than BAPTISTS. I suppose the same motive would fit a Christian College turned Secular University: "Seeing Godliness as a means of financial gain."

The Spirit of Christ inspired ALL that was written (1 Peter 1:11; Rev 19:10). The ROCK called Jesus Christ inspired 'that which was written' which was written to fit a SYNAGOGUE and must be repudiated before you can turn church into A THEATER FOR HOLY ENTERTAINMENT.

For whatsoever things were WRITTEN AFORETIME were written for our learning,
........... that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. Rom 15:4

Paul said NOTHING about MUSIC in any form. What he called SPEAKING or PREACHING with the SPIRIT or the WORD OF CHRIST was an easier way to learn the PSALMS so that they would dwell in the heart of the plowman gaining patience and comfort from the SCRIPTURES. God would outlaw erotic praising from that which TWILA PARIS HAS WRITTEN.

Comfort of the Scripture CANNOT occur when you frazzle nerves and claim that YOUR songs were inspired by Christ. Sure, some claim to "lead you into the presence of God" through their performance.

Comfort CANNOT come from paganistic "praise singing" which is taunting but only through teaching the Scriptures.

Paraklesis (g3874) par-ak'-lay-sis; from 3870; imploration, hortation, solace: - comfort, consolation, EXHORTATION, intreaty.

Patience means cheerfulness. Figurative melody also means cheerfulness as "she has a MELODIOUS voice" or "she has a GRACEFUL walk."

Only Jesus Christ is the Paraklete and He said that God ONLY seeks those who can worship in the PLACE of their spirit as it gives heed to THE TRUTH: the Word of Christ or Spirit.

You will never see the New Testament "church" or ekklesia or synagogue with the PATTERNISM of singing, clapping, playing instruments or loud, charismatic preaching which works ONLY because it creates spiritual anxiety.

The REST Jesus gave was the REST of the Sabbath. The Sabbath was never a DAY OF WORSHIP but a day of REST. On that day people loved to go into the local synagogue, hear the Word read and dialoged, pray his own PERSONAL prayers and fellowship with others. CHURCHING in the ACU pattern utterly destroys that which Jesus died for. The rest:

Anapauo (g373) an-up-ow'-o; from 303 and 3973; (reflex.) to repose (lit. or fig. [be exempt], remain); by impl. to refresh: - take ease, refresh, (give, take) rest.

Pauo (g3973) pow'-o; a prim. verb ("pause"); to stop (trans. or intrans.), i.e. restrain, quit, desist, come to an end: - cease, leave, refrain.

The SABBATH was deliberately chosen as the DAY FOR REST AND "NOT SPEAKING YOUR OWN WORDS" to keep people form travelling to the Babylonian form WORSHIP CENTERS. The Sabbath in Babylon was for the gods and their clergy AGENTS to rest while the common people WORKED to feed, clothe, house and entertain the gods (their agents, the clergy).

And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: Isaiah 58:10

Aflicted is "responsive singing, shouting, testifying, announcing, sing together by course." Anah (h6030, 6031). That is how they afflicted and still AFFLICT Jesus with the "crucifying music for animal sacrifice." The Bible from heaven and the garden of Eden to the end times in Revelation 18 condemns instrumental music and associates it with LADING THE BURDEN which Jesus died to remove.

The Sabbath was designed to CALL OUT God's people from the Babylonian rituals performed on the Sabbath because the Sabbath began in Babylon to burden the common people while the god's AGENTS were served. Jesus died to remove ALL burdens of rituals and taxes.

The New Testament prescribes the LORD'S DAY because that was going to be the say when FALSE CHRISTIANITY as a religion would try to AFFLICT the true church of Christ as a synagogue:

And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. Isaiah 58:11

And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. Isaiah 58:12

If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him,
........... not doing thine own ways,
........... nor finding thine own pleasure,
........... nor speaking thine own words: Is.58:13

That defines the SYNAGOGUE OF CHRIST defined by Paul in Romans 15 to dispel the DIVERSITY condemned in Romans 14. Not PLEASURING or "exciting one another" was a direct command:

Chephec (h2656) khay'-fets; from 2654; pleasure; hence (abstr.) desire; concr. a valuable thing; hence (by extens.) a matter (as something in mind): - acceptable, delight (-some), desire, things desired, matter, pleasant (-ure), purpose, willingly.

The Assembly of Christ is suited prophetically by defining assembly on the LORD'S DAY because of the RISING worship of the SUN which was the worship performed in both Israel and Judah with lots of music. If the church becomes ecumenical and quite identical to all other "churching" to escape the ACU curse of being "sectarian" then we would have violated the purpose of Jesus Christ to ekklesia or CALL OUT people from paganism to REST and SYNAGOGUE or learn the Word to keep us out of the WORLD. If we "become as much like the world as possible to seek the world" then we repudiate the REST He gives us as a fundamental part of the Gospel.

It is doubtful that ONE such Synagogue of Christ exists after the PLAGUE spread by the DOCTORS OF THE LAW who just will not stay fired by Jesus.

The SCHOLARLY falsehood about not-using INSTRUMENTS as proving SECTARIANISM is a deliberate attempt ot make people believe that unless they are OPEN then they are "rotten and destructive." This is psychological violence trying to keep everyone in their place.

They have NEVER read Paul in getting their Phds. Paul explained the MARKS of a true minister as ALWAYS that of persecution for "teaching the Word as it has been taught" that we must EKKLESIA or be CALLED OUT from the MASSES who have always been Satan's or Lucifer's "holy whores" MARKED by music,

But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 2 Corinthians 6:4

In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings; 2 Corinthians 6:5
By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, 2 Corinthians 6:6

By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 2 Corinthians 6:7

Paul absolutely COMMANDED with a DIRECT COMMAND:

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14

And what concord (a "musical term") hath Christ with Belial (Satan)? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 2 Corinthians 6:15

I have noted that Jesus as the ROCK supplies the WATER OF THE WORD as the foundation of the Christian Synagogue. And He said that worship is IN THE PLACE OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT which is the most holy place. The Synagogue or Holy Place is public but the worship is private: one priest at a time in silence and darkness GIVING HEED to God alone and not accompanied by a PREACHING OR SINGING MEDIATOR:

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 2 Corinthians 6:16

God symbolically dwelled in the MOST HOLY PLACE which is not the collective but the individual:

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate (divorce yourself), saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 2 Corinthians 6:17

And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Corinthians 6:18

Royce Money and necessarily his entire crew do not grasp the TYPE of the Temple.

Playing loud NOISE during the slaughter and burning of the TYPE of Christ was called NOISE and never music. Otherwise, the singers and players in and around the temple precincts were PROSTITUTES and SODOMITES.

Most Holy Place: Christ's Presence as Head

Human spirit or mind where we meet God Who IS ONLY Spirit.

ONE priest at a time comes before the throne in darkness and silence.

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

Only Priests Enter

The Laver

The Altar
Court: World outside of the Holy Places
 
Slaughter and Consuming of TYPE of Christ.
 
Levitical "singers and musicians" made NOISE and not "music."
 
Not among the Jews nor the VILEST pagan temples did the MUSICIANS ever enter into the Holy Place (church) or Most Holy Place (where we MEET God).

STEPS
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Heb.4:16
 

The Laver
But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. Gal 3:25
 
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Gal 3:26
 
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. Gal 3:27

The Altar
Fulfilled type that Clergy and Judas would try to TRIUMPH OVER Jesus with "instruments and making a joyful noise before the Lord."
Court of Women

Where the Levites stood to "praise the KING" more than to praise the Lord. Praise means to "make a fool of yourself." Therefore, most temple courts had acrobats, clowns, mimes and all kinds of secular entertainment like the Feast of Tabernacles as a FERTILITY RITUAL and TALENT SHOW Jesus knew to be the place the Jews would be looking for THEIR MESSIAH to kill him. Around Jerusalem the SINGERS and PLAYERS were usually prostitutes or Sodomites.

Royce Money is the President of ACU MUST KNOW that he has collected a Band of teachers who have as their goal the destrution of the PEACE AND QUIET Jesus died to give. The NEW STYLE WORSHIP derives from Lucifer or Zoe the "mother of Jehovah" who found out that the way to get out of the abyss was to sing praise songs to Sophia and Zoe. They promoted him to heaven where he formed musical worship teams. To worship whom? Why to worship with PRAISE SONGS the feminist or effeminate MOTHER GODDESS.

The "scholarly offerings" of all of the band should embarass any Bible student. But as Paul warned, "Fools love to be fooled" but God makes no excuses for the BLIND who are led by the BLIND.

Jesus said NOTHING about a church. The SUN WORSHIPING CHURCH on the Lord's Day would be the worship of the MOTHER OF THE GODS or the HOLY WHORE. She was CIRCE who was burried within view of John on Patmos. In Legend and probably history she seduced men with SORCERY defined in the book of Revelation. This involved administering the drug of a Mayapple-like fruit along with INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC. She then seduced you but then turned you into a swine. She then occupied her FULL TIME POSITION making patty cakes out of dung to feed you as a BEAST. You know, like sermon outlines.

DUNG was almost a code word for the COURT of the temple filled with dung, blood, smell of flesh and the odor of burning flesh. When the MUSICAL WORSHIP TEAM who conducted the dead in funerals or performed at religious rituals tried to HELP Jesus heal or appease the "dead" girl Jesus said that she was not DEAD in the sense that she had become a demon. They laughed Jesus to scorn as people do today with singing, clapping and playing instruments while JESUS is trying to SPEAK in His synagogue. As a result, Jesus cast them out more or less violently using a word meaning like one "ejects dung." This has a basis in the Classics.

He will do it again and the AGENTS will also be cast out for their ignorant writing if for no other purpose. Here is the end-time Babylon Whore which is quite identical to the one well defined in the original Babylon religion:

And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. Rev 18:14

And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; Rev 18:22

The craftsmen are like the mantikos, the soothsayer, divination. He is associated with Apollo or Abaddon or Apollyon who arouses the locusts. The locusts were Apollo's MUSES or musicians. They had offended the MOTHER GODDESS and she sent them underground until aroused. The grasshopper or locust was known as the musical performer who could put you to sleep: much like Circe. Legend? Maybe but Circe, Apollo and the locusts fit the description of John so that a common legend became the coded message to the church about how to identify a false church.
