  • Psalm 33

      Posted Mar 29, 2005 11:54 AM

      The problem with a thread like this is that it gives VENT to people who have no love for the truth. Annie Mouse is just FABRICATING this. It is a clear confession of the postmodern lost mind that God has given them the right to INFILTRATE and DIVERT and do "anything to save more souls." However, that gives us the chance to SHOOT DOWN the false teaching over and over.

      ALL of the "instrumental" psalms prove that they are the product of the KING and commanders of the army. That is because all instruments and loud singing was outlawed in Numbers 10 except for signals and for going to war. David praises as a MILITARY leader and NEVER as a minister of God.

      Psalm 33 This is the only instrumental Psalm which is not clearly magical or judgmental. This is not surprising because PRAISE SINGING, like the Greek "odeing" or hymning was a way to enchant or drive the enemy warriors into panic and cowardice. However, if you read closely you will see that it recommends activities never permitted in the temple slaughter pen.

      You have to remember that the INSTRUMENTALISTS were "improvized" by the KING and the COMMANDERS OF THE ARMY. They had the normal NATIONAL task of performing at CIVIL animal sacrifices and other functions. You will notice that of the instrumental Psalms, Psalm 33 is picked on because it is not as MILITARY and judgmental as ALL of the other instrumental Psalms. I have tried to categorize the instrumental Psalms and you will see that MOST of them have no instrumental comments. Amos specificially condemns Israel because they took David's songs and instruments RIGHT INTO the sancturary along with wine women and song.

      Remember also that the silver trumpets were given for signals including military movements. The Psalms were not PRAISE SONGS for congregational worship with David as the Musical Worship Minister. Rather, like the story of Gideon, these were TAUNT songs known in connection with all ancient warfare. You twanged bowstrings, played instruments and tried to prove that OUR GOD CAN LICK YOUR GOD. It often worked and the enemy simply panicked and ran. Imagine a band of british coming at you with drums and bagpipes. One scholar noted that such instruments are intended to ENRAGE you so that you marck into the valley to certain death.
        The establishment of the kingdom itself was an act of rebellion against God" (David Lipscomb, Queries and Answers, pp. 226, 227, and Gospel Advocate, 1899, pp. 376, 377).
      The king, kingdom and the temple were LIKE THE NATIONS because that is what God turned them over to because of the musical idolatry at Mount Sinai and the later elders "firing" God and demanding a king "like the nations." God understood this especially in Israel but also in Judah so that they could worship like the nations.
        Like the nations the LORD destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the LORD your God. De.8:20

        You say, "We want to be like the nations, like the peoples of the world, who serve wood and stone." But what you have in mind will never happen. Eze.20:32

      The "nations" believed that their god lived in houses just as David thought that he sing, played and danced before Jehovah in the Ark of the Covenant. That superstitious PRAISE meant to make yourself so VILE that no god could hurt you. All of the nations believed--like modern singers and musicians--that the gods lived especially in musical instruments. David played his harp trying to AWAKEN God but we are told:
        Woe to him who says to wood, 'Come to life!' Or to lifeless stone, 'Wake up!' Can it give guidance? It is covered with gold and silver; there is no breath in it. Hab 2:19

        But the LORD is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him." Hab 2:20

      The Levitical "musicians" were warriors under the king and commanders of the army. They did not worship God but:
        And he appointed, according to the order of David his father, the courses of the priests to their service, and the Levites to their charges, to praise and minister before the priests, as the duty of every day required: the porters also by their courses at every gate: for so had David the man of God commanded. 2Chr.8:14
      The service was to the priests:
        Abodah (h5656) ab-o-daw'; or abowdah ab-o-daw'; from 5647; work of any kind: - act, bondage, / bondservant, effect, labour, ministering (-try), office, service (-ile, -itude), tillage, use, work, * wrought

        Abad (h5647) aw-bad'; a prim. root; to work (in any sense); by impl. to serve, till, (caus.) enslave, etc.: - * be, keep in bondage, be bondmen, bond-service, compel, do, dress, ear, execute, / husbandman, keep, labour (-ing man), bring to pass, (cause to, make to) serve (-ing, self), (be, become) servant (-s), do (use) service, till (-er), transgress [from margin], (set a) work, be wrought, worshipper.

      That is identical to the Hebrew Abowdan which is the same as Apollo or Abaddon or Apollyon who again DIGS UP the locusts or musical worshipers for the end-time rise of a Monarchy "just like David."

    ...........................THE BOOK

    What Happened at the Madison Church of Christ?

    There are thousands of churches being taken over across America.

    This book is only about one of those churches. It's about the Madison Church Of Christ. By studying the methods used here along with the resource references you might be able to inoculate your church. At the very least you will recognize the signs early on.

    Many of the current members of the Madison Church of Christ still don't know what happened.
    Some never will know! This book is for them as well.

    Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ.

    It thrived for many years on the vision of it's elders and those of it's ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ.

    At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm.

    They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ.

    The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late.....

    At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off so new techniques could be used to go out and reach the unchurched through new "Contemporary Holy Entertainment" methods developed by the "Community Church Movement"

    Old members had to be kept on board long enough to get their plans ready, or the funds would not be there to pay for the new building. So by the plans very nature, it had to be secret.

    The church had no plan in effect to renew or approve elders. There was never any need. The elders had always been "as approved by God". 10 of the last 15 elders would begin to shed some doubt on that.

    The Elders did not even need a majority at first, because some of the elders went along unwittingly.

    This edition starts shortly after some of the members begin to smell something strange in January 2001. Later editions may go back and fill in some of the timeline.

    To even start to understand whats happening here, you must read the background materials in the first of the book.

    This is only the first edition, and not the end. New editions will be printed as needed. To keep abreast of current changes, please visit our web site;

    Here is the list of players;

    5 Godly Elders
    10 Not so Godly Elders
    120 "Deacons" (allegiance unknown)
    2,800 - 4,000 church "members"
    2 "teners" (people who have publicly confessed to have broken all ten commandments)
    Unknown number of "sinners" (This is what the 10 elders call us.)
    Unknown number of "demons" (Flying everywhere, to many to count)
