Chad, when I form my organization for EJECTING the doctors of the Law I am going to make you our poster lad.
Why? Why, because you have made all of those TITHES AND OFFERINGS and had your life ripped apart by men the Greek world called PARASITES. They are parasites and the fact that you take no note (which probably no Doctor of the Law knows) of the Mount Sinai Musical Idolatry. At that Instant according to Stephen and others, God TURNED ISRAEL OVER to worship the starry host. When the ELDERS demanded SET A KING (pastor) over us God warned them that the kings would destroy them. That is, carry them beyond Babylon to captivity and death. Gad who carried PLAGUE STOPPING messages to David was a STAR GAZER.
The Psalms are poetic versions of the prose history as indeed much of the Old Testament is POETIC to make learning by SPEAKING or reciting easier. So, just get off the silliness that DAVID DID IT. David did the circle dance while PLAYING with the slave girls. The HOLY SPIRIT is proven when you spin around long enough to PUKE and strip off and MAKE YOURSELF VILE with the servant girls (camp followers?).
> Ecclesiasticus 48
1. Then the prophet Elijah arose like a fire, and his word burned like a torch.
2. He brought a famine upon them, and by his zeal he made them few in number.
3. By the word of the Lord he shut up the heavens, and also three times brought down fire.
4. How glorious you were, O Elijah, in your wondrous deeds! And who has the right to boast which you have?
5. You who raised a corpse from death and from Hades, by the word of the Most High;
6. who brought kings down to destruction, and famous men from their beds;
7. who heard rebuke at Sinai and judgments of vengeance at Horeb;
8. who anointed kings to inflict retribution,
and prophets to succeed you.
> O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help. Hosea 13:9
----I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst, Give me a king and princes? Hosea 13:10
I gave thee a king in mine ANGER, and took him away in my WRATH. Hosea 13:11
GOD WARNED THAT THE KINGS WOULD CHANGE THE LAWS AND SEASONS. Therefore, Bible 101aa knows that:
--"The book of Psalms contain new doctrine after the Law of Moses. And after the writing of Moses, it is the second book of doctrine... (David) first gave to the Hebrews a new style of psalmody, by which he ABROGATES the ordinances established by Moses with respect to sacrifices, and INTRODUCES the new hymn and a new style of JUBILANT PRAISE in the worship of God; and throughout his whole ministry he teaches very many other things that went BEYOND the law of Moses." (Fragment of Commentary by Hippolytus, bishop of Rome, Ante-Nicene, V, p. 170)
DAVID WAS NOT A MUSICAL WORSHIP MINISTER. David was the KING demanded contrary to God's Will and to whom God virtually abandoned the nation. The MUSICAL LEVITES were WARRIOR musicians and under the UNLAWFUL MONARCHY the were under the KING and COMMANDERS of the army. Their musical noise FOR THE KING AND KINGDOM is always separated from the TRUMPETS OF GOD.
Furthermore, David often sang psalms and made music IN HIS HEART. The Levites were NEVER allowed on the penalty of death into the HOLY PLACE which was a perfect TYPE of the body or Church of Christ. In the synagogue or church as ANTI-TYPE any kid with an IQ as long as his necktie could tell you that music was NEVER permitted in the synagogues and Paul outlaws it for the ASSEMBLY or synagogue of Christ by insisting that singing and melody be IN THE HEART. External MUSIC was the weapon of warriors or prostitutes and had no role to play in the church.
Where churches add "rhetoricians, sophists, singers and musicians" they reinstitute the SECT OF HYPOCRITES. They were known in the Greek world as PARASITES because they contributed nothing and sucked blood.
NO MUSIC IN THE WORSHIP OF GOD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. David never played for congregation singing. And the people's congregation were PUT OUT of the temple when the temple-state or CIVIL sacrifices were made for the new PAGAN LIKE nation. MUSIC for the prodigal son, like Psalm 150, would include wine, singing, dancing, playing instruments. The PRAISE word meant to MAKE YOURSELF VILE because God cannot punish the INSANE.
