Seek The Old Paths

Grace Centered: Zealots,” are the extreme or Exclusive Right Wing of the church, and like their first century namesakes, make strong attacks against everything and everyone they see as a threat to their culture and cling tenaciously to what they call the “old paths.” 

Not even the most extreme would EXCLUDE you from their assemblies: GCM's instrumental ZEAL would and has excluded up to half of the owners who had their monies diverted by deceit.  If the writer had TAKEN A CENSUS rather than visualize he would understand that if 100% of the preachers flaping the RIGHT WING were really evil ASSASSINS (daggar men), that would not shut the mouth of The Holy Spirit of Christ who REPUDIATED the Jew's Religion Pattern for using Musical instruments as CAUSE of the deliberate starving the people for lack of the Word. Rick Atchley CONFESSED that is exactly what the PROGRESSIVE did to manipulate the minds (sorcery) of the youth using musical bands. That's a ZEALOT.

Galatians 1:13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion,
        how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:
Galatians 1:14 And profited in the Jewsreligion above many my equals in mine own nation,
        being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

IN THE GODLY SENSE;

--Zelotes means an emulator , zealous admirer orfollower. math-ēsis , eōs, , (mathein) A. the act of learning, getting of knowledge

Jesus said that the Doctors of the Law "take away the key to knowledge." Paul was led into this error by attending the schools of the PROGRESSIVE rabbi.

2 Maccabees 4
1 - The previously mentioned Simon, who had informed about the money against his own country, slandered Onias, saying that it was he who had incited Heliodorus and had been the real cause of the misfortune.
2 - He dared to designate as a plotter against the government the man who was the benefactor of the city, the protector of his fellow countrymen, and a zealot for the laws.
3 - When his hatred progressed to such a degree that even murders were committed by one of Simon's approved agents,
9
- In addition to this he promised to pay one hundred and fifty more if permission were given to

establish by his authority a gymnasium and a body of youth for it, and to enrol the men of Jerusalem as citizens of Antioch.

See Ignatius of Antioch to Ephesus

See First Maccabees on the Gymnasium

Even though the Church of Christ is recorded in all ages and NEVER used musical instruments to say that this is based on their CULTURE--from the 50s--is evil.  You CANNOT obey the direct command which follows and MAKE MUSIC with Christ's words because God gave them to Jesus without METER: that's why there is NO MEASURE or meter in the whole Bible.

NO PROGRESSIVE KNOWS THE MEANING OF THE "OLD PATHS" otherwise they would not blaspheme the Holy (adjective) Spirit of Christ

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. Isa 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.
Isa 58:12

Sabbath does not mean Saturday but: intermission

A primitive root; to repose, that is, desist from exertion; used in many implied relations (causatively, figuratively or specifically): (cause to, let, make to) cease, , (make to) rest, rid, still, take away.

The true Sabbath is the Greek word PAUO meaning: Stop the preaching, singing, playing or anything that creates spiritual anxiety or the Laded Burden Jesus died to remove.

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: Isa 58:13
Isaiah 59:21 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 seed’s seed, saith the LORD,
        from henceforth and for ever.

In ALL of the NEVER MUSICAL commands Paul and Peter command that we "use ONE mind and ONE mouth to speak that which is written for our learning."  That means that people deliberately deny that Christ has commanded us to build or educate the church on the Prophets and Apostles.  Why? Why because no one could be that Bible deprived UNLESS God has delusioned them and removed His lamps ON COMMAND when the Rhetoricians, singers and instrument players became SORCERERS intending to deceive the whole world. [Rev 18]

The WAY OF ESCAPE is when the Christ-Condemned hypocrites MOVE ON and make the school of the Word into "a theater for holy entertainment" = a Testesterone Free Zone. And DO they run!


In Romans 15 Paul outlawed SELF-pleasure: the word in Greek and latin means "to create mental excitement." Jesus called it a laded burden (singing) which "created spiritual anxiety through religious rituals." He said that the kingdom DOES NOT come with observation: that means Religious Observations.

THESIS: private opinion (doubtful disputations) outlawed in Romans 14. Then
 

Mar 6:22 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased G700 Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.
1 Thes 2:4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel,
        even so we speak; not as pleasing G700 men,
        but God, which trieth our hearts.

First
, Paul prevents the assembly voting on what it wants to do to seek pleasure.
Second, it is identical to the word HERETIC which means to use those pleasure devices.
He intends to ROB something or someone for HIS OWN USE.

IN LATIN Self Pleasure
Rom. 8:5 Those who live according to the sinful nature
        have their MINDS set on what that nature
DESIRES
        but those who live in accordance with the
Spirit
        have their
MINDS set on what the Spirit DESIRES.
John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
John 6:63 It is the
Spirit that quickeneth;
        the FLESH profiteth nothing: the WORDS that I speak unto you,
        they are
Spirit, and they are life.s
Spirit in a personified sense seems restricted to Abaddon or Apollyon.  Spirits were the ghosts of the dead which the Jews worshipped in Amos as A Covenant with Death and Hell or A Covenant with Dead Ancestors. Whatever the facts, most superstitious people believed that spirits inhabited almost everything. If you worship a tree you believe that a spirit lives inside of it.  People believed that gods or demons lived inside of musical instruments: they were baptized as the Catholics baptize or sprinkle bells or instruments. 

Rom. 8:6 For to be carnally MINDED is death;
        but to be spiritually MINDED is life and peace.
Rom. 8:7 Because the carnal
MIND is enmity against God:
        for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Rom. 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot PLEASE God.

THE UNIVERSAL COMMAND FROM THE CHURCH IN THE WILDERNESS ONWARD WAS TO READ THE WORD.

The direct command for the Synagogue and the Church: both Jew and Gentile were ready for Christ because especially the Prophets by Christ were read without any legalistic rituals.

Acts 2:14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven,
        lifted up his voice, and said unto them
,
        Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem,
        be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

Acts 13:15 And after the reading of the law and the prophets

Since the laws are made after long experience and after commissioners of some kind have carefully considered each detail with delicate skill and have persuaded the people to pass them, anyone, I fancy, who ventured to violate them would be involved in error many times greater than the first, and would cause even greater ruin than the written laws to all kinds of transactions.

Giving attention to the Word of Christ is the only "worship" concept.
ANTITHESIS:

The direct commands span the "singing and harp playing prostitute" in the garden of Eden to the Babylon Mother of Harlost (Rev 17) who uses speakers, singers, instrument players and craftsmen (theater builders and stage managers. Maybe makeup people praiseteam). Paul called the Sorcerers.

Christ promised another REST day in the prophets and defined both REST and BURDEN exactly as the Law of Moses.  The Laded burden was a form of songs "which creates spiritual anxiety in religious rituals."

Paul has defined the SELF pleasure in Romans 15 using a word which excludes all of the hypocrites and hypocritic arts: preaching, singing, playing instruments, acting. This is the same message as in Ephesians 4 where the elders have the duty to EXCLUDE all of the performing arts. Common sense agrees that this must be done before you can conduct what Paul called "synagogue" which was and is a School (only) of the Word (only) of Christ.

We know that to be true by Paul's ANTITHESIS. Not even Jesus spoke on His own: He revealed only which the Father in heaven told Him to say. Jesus in Holy Spirit form spoke only what Jesus in the flesh taught. Paul taught only what the Lord as "Jesus of Nazareth) SPOKE to Him after qualifying Him by appearing to Him. When "all that applies to life and godliness" has been supplied, only those not OF TRUTH or not OF FAITH need any more liberty to enhance the unlawful collection plate.

Jesus says THESE WORDS will judge us in the last days. The OLD PATHS are ways in which to walk: there is nothing that can happen in A School of Christ connected with "culture" that a disciple of Christ would NEED or WANT. The Old Paths are clearly That Which is Written for our learning; Peter says that anyone who does not SPEAK that left "memory" is a False Teacher.

Cycle One

Cycle Two

WE then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Romans And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people. Romans 15:10
Romans 15:2 Let every one of us pleasehis neighbour for his good to edification. [education]
For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches [make naked] of them that reproached thee fell on me. Romans 15:3
And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people. Romans 15:11

The Greek and Latin "please" excludes all of the musical or "excitemnt" acts
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning (teaching), that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4 And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust. Romans 15:12
Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: Romans 15:5 Now the God of hope fill you (not with wine but) with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:13
That ye may with ONE mind and one mouth glorify (tell of His works) God [Theos even the Father of our Lord [Lord] Jesus Christ. Romans 15:6  ONE God: ONE lord And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another. Romans 15:14
Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister (deacon) of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: Romans 15:8 [Prophets made certain] Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God. Romans 15:15
And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will (2) that the offering (bloodless sacrifice) up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:16
Eph. 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water INTO the word,
(1) confess to thee among the Gentiles, and (1) That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles,

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

In Romans 15 this is a way to let Jesus sing to the Gentiles: that's why we teach and admonish and do not entertain and force Jesus to be silent.

ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

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

Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. Rom 15:19

ZEALOTS, SICARRI OR ASSASSINS DEFINED IN PRACTICE: MOTIVE OF THOSE IMPOSING INSTRUMENTS: EVERYONE KNEW THE PURPOSE DRIVING ZEALOTS.

Cicero Pro Roscio Amerino 93
93 Come, let us consider now the other circumstances which might make it easy for him.
There was at that time a multitude of assassins [sīcārĭus], as Erucius has stated, and men were being killed with impunity [never follow a multitude or mob]
        What!—what was that multitude? A multitude, I imagine,
        either of those who were occupied in getting possession of men's property [

        or of those who were hired by them to murder some one.
                If you think it was composed of those who coveted other men's property,
                you are one of that number,—you who are enriched by our wealth;

     EXAMPLE IN THE OUR WORLD.

Rick Atchley and all enablers or fans Says:

Well, we discipled the children of those progressive churches
        for a whole generation to grow past us Boomers.
        They never heard the sermons we heard.
        They never heard the rationale for a cappella music.
We sent them to youth rallies and Church of Christ events
        with some of the finest Christian bands in the world.
        We discipled our children to leave our Movement!

Because it is a FACT that all of the Child-Stealers and Temple Robbers lie about all of the Bible and Recorded history to fool the foolish that WORSHIP means that "God commanded instruments."

Because we KNOW that God never commanded instruments for worship.
Christ in Jeremiah says that they are BLASPHEMERS.
That means that they are Soul Assassins or Zealots.

The direct commands span the "singing and harp playing prostitute" in the garden of Eden to the Babylon Mother of Harlost (Rev 17) who uses speakers, singers, instrument players and craftsmen (theater builders and stage managers. Maybe makeup people praiseteam). Paul called the Sorcerers.

Christ promised another REST day in the prophets and defined both REST and BURDEN exactly as the Law of Moses.

The Laded burden was a form of songs "which creates spiritual anxiety in religious rituals."

Paul has defined the SELF pleasure in Romans 15 using a word which excludes all of the hypocrites and hypocritic arts: preaching, singing, playing instruments, acting. This is the same message as in Ephesiand 4 where the elders have the duty to EXCLUDE all of the performing arts. Common sense agrees that this must be done before you can conduct what Paul called "synagogue" which was and is a School (only) of the Word (only) of Christ.

We know that to be true by Paul's ANTITHESIS. Not even Jesus spoke on His own: He revealed only which the Father in heaven told Him to say. Jesus in Holy Spirit form spoke only what Jesus in the flesh taught. Paul taught only what the Lord as "Jesus of Nazareth) SPOKE to Him after qualifying Him by appearing to Him. When "all that applies to life and godliness" has been supplied, only those not OF TRUTH or not OF FAITH need any more liberty to enhance the unlawful collection plate.

Jesus says THESE WORDS will judge us in the last days. The OLD PATHS are ways in which to walk: there is nothing that can happen in A School of Christ connected with "culture" that a disciple of Christ would NEED or WANT. The Old Paths are clearly That Which is Written for our learning; Peter says that anyone who does not SPEAK that left "memory" is a False Teacher.
