Informed people do not grasp a POEM by David the WARRIOR and make it into a legalistic COMMAND for Christian Worship. Doing so disqualifies anyone from an intelligent dialog: you need to demand a REFUND. Jesus founded an ekklesia or synagogue or school of the Bible which CONTINUES the practice for the CIVILIAN population throughout the Old Testament. Unless you were from the tribe of Levi and part of the "FEDERAL GOVERNMENT" which had its own SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM just like ALL PAGAN nations, you were NEVER part of the "worship." Tribal representatives or "stationary men" attended some animal sacrifices but NOT inside the court where animals were slaughtered and burned while the LOUD NOISE served the PRIESTS. Because this was a LIKE THE NATION'S WORSHIP, the music served as EXORCISM: expelling the bad demons and attracting the good demons into their temple.
But, let me inform you: the Levitical warrior NOISE MAKERS could never enter into the holy precincts of the temple--even to clean out garbage--without getting run through by the other Warrior Levites. There is NO example of anyone doing WORSHIP in a HOUSE built by human hands doing the WORKS of human hands: clapping, waving, playing instruments. NONE. So, just Eat, Drink and Make Mary for tomorrow you die according to the Bible and all contemporaneous literture.
No! Not in Jezebel's Musical Worship, not in the MOST VILE pagan temple could singers and instrumentalists ENTER into the "houses" or holy precincts.
There are different words for the COURTS and the Holy Precincts. Slaughtering animals and burning animals which was SIGNALLED by the loud NOISE was outside in the PARKING LOTS so don't hallucinate "congregational singing with instrumental accompaniment." What? Your preacher said WHAT? Well, there simply is nothing in the curriculum of even a PhDuh which would give anyone a CLUE.
They were grouped OUTSIDE in the court yards along with the Jesters, Prostitutes, Acrobats and Sodomites--all part of the end-time Babylon Prostitute of Revelation 18. When you see the "musicators" actually CLAIMING to stand in the holy precincts to LEAD YOU INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD they are rubbing your PRIVATE PARTS and are WELL BEYOND REDEMPTION. In Revelation 18, it is a MARK that God has BLOWN OUT THE LAMPS of the seven spirits of Divine Knowledge.
We have discussed Psalm 150 which incites lust for "musical worship" by repudiating the cross in many threads. However, it flew past some so I will post here somewhat away from the flinging end of the manure spreader.
All instrumental Psalms are PARADE or PROCESSIONAL or Warrior's Boast or Panic chants. We have an example when by having the Ark of the Covenant Saul failed to MUSICAL INTIMIDATE the Philistines. People use bagpipes and drums or other instruments to DRIVE the warriors into the jaws of death when in their RATIONAL MIND they would not commit suicide. Ask a Korean vet who has been attacked with bugles. Musicators in the church VIOLATE direct commands and are using PSYCHOLOGICAL force to get SELF GLORY and pick the pockets of honest working people
They repudiate "legalism" but lie, cheat and steal USING the Law of TITHING or the Law of Giving by telling people that they have some spiritual superiority: that is THE meaning of a PHARISEE while all PERFORMERS belong to the SECTARIAN Hypocrites which Jesus lumped with ALL of the sectarians who REMAINED ON THE DOLE when there were no SACRIFICES to be made.
"Some of the psalms express a tribalistic hatred of foreign powers; even the beautiful laments of the exiles 'by the waters of Babylon,' for example, concludes with the assurance that the daughter of Babylon will be destroyed. 'Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth the little ones against the stones.'
"But in nearly a third of the collection the 'enemies' whose death the psalmist so confidently prays for and anticipates are not Gentile nations,
but individual Jews who do not share the religious conviction of the Hasidim (Pharisees). In the words of Psalm 58, 'the righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. So that a man shall say, Verily there is reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth." (Parkes, Henry Bamford, Gods and Men The Origins of Western Culture, p. 134, Knopf)
What the whine-piney hearts don't know because none of the professionals know is that the "because of transgression" at Mount Sinai was the MUSICAL IDOLATRY of the common pagan TRINITY of three persons or PEOPLE. Because of that sin BEYOND REDEMPTION for the multitudes who were NOT true Israelites God turned the nation over to worship the STARRY HOSTS. When the elders demanded a Pulpit Minister or dominant pastor or king like the nations God knew that they wanted to WORSHIP like the nations or the Goyim which originated out of Voodoo Africa and became Canaanite and Babylonian Baalism.
God gave the kings "In My anger and took them away in My anger"
because once they FIRED God they set in motion the captivity and death sentence imposed BECAUSE OF musical idolatry which repudiated the Covenant of Grace made to Abraham. Paul LEAPFROGS the whole Law mess and connects Baptism to the realization of that PROMISE (Gal 3). That promsie of REST means "stop the singing, stop the music, stop the merchandising the Free Word." That is identical to the synagogue or church in the wilderness: ok to CALL the assembly by BLOWING like a church bell. However, you do not MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE or blow trumpets which also means CLAP HANDS. Why do you need a PhDuh to know that you don't DO that when the Civil Defense calls you together to get ready for a STORM.
After the wars had been won David had a surplus Military Industrial Complex on his hand. Like all victories, you have to MAKE WORK for the warriors or they will turn on you.
1Chr.25:1 David [king, not priest), together with the commanders of the army, set apart some of the sons of Asaph, Heman and Jeduthun for the ministry of prophesying, accompanied by harps, lyres and cymbals. Here is the list of the men who performed this service:
This SERVICE means "Hard bondage." The Musical Warrior Levites drove even Israelites into slavery to build the UNWANTED Temple
while Solomon sold some of their WHOLE CITIES to Hiram. God's plan for a NATIONAL TEMPLE was from Hiram who had built his own National Temple. Tyre was given the SPIRIT of Lucifer who is called the "singing and harp playing prostitute." We have actual records of how the use the PROSTITUTE MUSICIANS to sell Cedar and then kill the buyer and take back their cedar. The BOUGHT the "souls" of Israelites just like they bought and sold purple cloth.
When you see DAVID'S Warrior Musicians they are always representing the MILITARY-CIVIL or government. At the same time the TRUMPETS under the Priests offered animal sacrifices NOT as worship but normally to EXORCISE temples or "purify" the king and the Civil-Religious Complex.
Running parallel to the NATIONAL or GENTILE rituals to give glory to the KING who claimed to be God's AGENTS (as in pulpits and choir "dresses.") was the SYNAGOGUE. That was described in Numbers 10 as the Qahal, ekklesia or "church in the wilderness." The PEOPLE were never called into assembly except for instructions in the Law. Their holy convocation on some First days and ALL sabbath (Rest) days was to READ or REHEARSE the written Word or that which the tribal elders had learned from meetings of REPRESENTATIVES.
Those meetings were called by a trumpet sound but the Alarm or Triumph over was outlawed. This is defined as "playing instruments and making a joyful noise before the Lord." This was NOT worship but the warrior's PANIC SOUND called NOISE. All literate people and ALL the musical terms and names of instruments know that as creating PANIC like "bungee jumping" so that you FEEL GOOD from a DRUG HIGH. Therefore, you are OUTLAWED from doing that AGAINST God or when people meet as SCHOOL OF THE BIBLE. The "common" Jews NEVER participated. Rather, the loud NOISE was a SIGNAL for those not part of the Military Religionists to be OUTSIDE the gates and ON their face. The singers and instrumentalists are NEVER said to worship and only those absolutely subdued and silent are said to worship.
Years after I stumbled onto the fact that the CHURCH or EKKLESIA was in the wilderness and instruments and loud rejoicing ABSOLUTELY OUTLAWED I came across a wonderful description by John Calvin. People didn't NOT
use instruments because of some hallucinated reason: any school kid knew that you don't SHOUT and PLAY in God's face and that is why they never SANG in a musical sense, never used instruments or never used NON-INSPIRED TEXTS until 1815 in a liberal Jewish synagogue from whence the first SECTARIAN in the Restoraton Movement got his views REPUDIATING inspiration and FORCING IN a littel reed organ.
While churches have been instrumental in creating generations of LOST BOYS and the Emerging Church movement preaching WITCHCRAFT has decided that the youth cannot grasp words anymore so they GONNA teach them how to VISION (the effeminate side), sing, clap, whirl, do light flashes, stand on their feet and do other MIND ALTERING until they fall into MADNESS Paul outlawed in Corinth. So, they DRIVE people deeper into the ANXIETY Jesus died to REMOVE along with the professional ANXIETY CREATERS which for every "10,000 witches there is One
"Donald Nugent...notes that the occult revival during the Renaissance and the present occult expansion have many factors in common. There is in both a degree of primitivism and psychic atavism, with an underlying substratum of despair. Both are eras where power is sought by the disenfranchised, especially women--Nugent comments that in the Renaissance one finds only one warlock for every 10,000 witches--and both have seen a growth of sexual license and pornographic literature." ( Montgomery, John Warwick (Editor), Demon Possession, Bethany House Publishers, p. 85).
"It is no accident that a high proportion of those who suddenly show symptoms of being bewitched (such as fainting or going into a semi-trance) at 'squaw dances' or other large gatherings are women or men who are somewhat neglected or who occupy low social status." (Goldschmidt, Walter, Exploring the Ways of Mankind, p. 518, Holt, Rinehart and Winston)
In the mega-churches which are quite identical to the KING'S Temple State which was patterned after the Towers of Babylon as CONTROL CENTER, if you suddenly finding yourself BUBBLING UP you should know that the spirit is NOT holy.
I will continue with material I have already posted on Psalm 150 which you can use ONLY if you are a WORSHIP WARRIOR polluting yourself in stealing the church houses of weeping widow.
