Dianna's list of contests with God prompted me to go back to the SERPENT in the garden of Eden: the Spirit OF Christ calls Lucifer (Zoe and Eve among the feminists in all ages) "the singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden" even though the king of Tyre was a male.
Hiram who built a real temple which can be verified, built Solomon's HOUSE which cannot be verified as a multi-billion dollar structure. I will post some Genesis 3 and the SERPENT. The work of the serpent proves that he was the musical enchanter whose work continued through Cain's descendants the Kenites or Canaanites when Abraham was given a small place out of the path of their commerce and religion.
If you DEBUNK all of the recorded history from clay tablets onward that is fine: the problem is that the literature--without exception--treats music and especially instrumental sounds such as that of BRASS (the Serpent Sound) as enchantment or sorcery.
While you are letting the VIPER RACE take over your church in the morning you can turn off your hearing aids and find us a command, example or remote inference of the Jehovah connected to the Patrirachs ever calling people out of their REST to engage in group singing with or without instruments. The VIPER principle told of the Musical Enchanter(ess) in the garden of Eden will be Driven by God's Purpose to change or silence the voice of the One Lord-God who has no name
The Serpent was the NAGA and I have collected a bit of evidence before I move the Genesis 3 data from RANCOR'S thread.
The latest spawn of preachers are postmodern, postbiblical and have no need for letting SCRIPTURE be the FOOD they are not selling. If they claim visions or voices don't drink their KoolAid.
The Word or Logos as God's Regulative Power delivered ONLY through Jesus Christ:
Is opposite to personal opinions, personal experiences, jokester introductions, rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or acting.
It is INCLUSIVE from the church in the wilderness onward of:
REST, Reading and Rehearsing the Word. This was to let everyone take home a whole Bible thought pattern. There the wives could discuss the TEXT ONLY with their husband.
If they DO NOT speak the WORD in the morning, Jesus and the Spirit OF Christ in Isaiah wants you to know that:
THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM
I will move the SERPENT data shortly along with lots of study resources proving that the original and end time commercial religionists will be the RACE OF VIPERS. They will always use weasel words and refute all of the data about Baptism (prophesied in Isaiah 1) because they are literally calling for the Baptism of SPIRIT (wind) and FIRE and John says that they are not qualified to be
Washed with WATER into the WORD or into the School (only) of Christ and His Word (only).

Female song writers
|September 17 2016, 6:11 PM |
If the purpose of psalms hymns spiritual songs is to teach, and females do not teach baptized males in the assembly, then why do we allow songs written by females to be sung in the assembly? Wouldn't this be females teaching over males with their own words?
Colossians 3:16 (KJV)
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Ephesians 5:17-19 (KJV)
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is .  And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;  Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
1 Corinthians 14:34-35 (KJV)
Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.  And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
Acts 18:25-26 (KJV)
This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.  And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them , and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.
Also, if women are answering questions in a mixed group in the assembly, is she teaching over men? In quite a few passages, the purpose behind assembling is to learn, and glorify Jesus Christ. I remember a time when we said we were going to bible study. We didn't say we were going to "worship services". I never paid much attention that the purpose had been subtlety changed, but worship, and bible study are two entirely different words with entirely different meanings and purposes.
1 Corinthians 14:10-11 (KJV)
There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.  Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me.

I guess that means no more Fanny J. Crosby.
Re: Female song writers
|September 17 2016, 9:08 PM |
Let's talk about SERPENTS: you can let Fanny write your Scripture in your Prayer Book.
Otherwise when people lust to be baptized with SPIRIT and FIRE they are really demanding to be winnowed by WIND (not a people) and separated out as CHAFF to be HEAPED UP (mega churches) to be BURNED.
And since KOMA is induced by musical instruments, you will be skipping and hopping until you get a hot foot.

Jesus said even when Jerusalem and Gerizim were still somewhat alive that worship was not at either PLACE but already worship was in the PLACE of the human spirit and in TRUTH or the Word of God. This was true for the godly Jews even in the church in the wilderness.
Worship is MY giving attention to the READ word for doctrine and comfort. Worship can ONLY take place in OUR mind other than literal worship as falling on our face. You cannot ACT out worship for others: that is an abomination.
Bible study demands reading the text (not used in most classes) and open for discussion. In fact, the early assembly is never called a "worship assembly" which is where the roles get mixed up. Paul wants us to discuss "that which is written for our learning" and there is no one with AUTHORITY beyond PREACHING the Word by READING the word.
We get into the gender thing when our "assemblies do more harm than good (1 Cor 11) with ROLES which people mean I want YOU to hire ME as your teacher when most of the members knew the word before they were born. The singular ROLE exercised by the president of the Hebrew Synagogue or the Greek ekklesia was to READ resources handed down from a higher authority. In the synagogue it was the Bible Text. The only commentary allowed was to translate from the original and offer any explanation of THAT WHICH WAS WRITTEN FOR OUR LEARNING. Most learning took place outside of that SINGULAR gathering for the singular purpose and everyone returning to earn their own bread. Gentiles attended the Jewish synagogue as the only place of learning. They were therefore wise unto salvation and just needed to be warned against offending Jewish customs.
Acts 15:21 For Moses of OLD TIMES
.....hath in every CITY
.....them that PREACH him,
.....being READ in the synagogues
.....every sabbath [REST] day.
Paul waited a whole week for the Church in Troas to come together.
Acts 20:7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
g1256. dialegomai, [the Logos] Paul Dialoged.
Paul practiced and told Timothy how to hold the LEARNING ASSEMBLY.
1Tim. 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation , to doctrine.
g3874. paraklesis, par-ak´-lay-sis; from 3870; imploration, hortation, solace: — comfort, consolation, exhortation, intreaty.
Paul in Romans 15 speaks of the COMFORT OF THE SCRIPTURES. Remembering in the Lord's Supper that JESUS died to become our ONLY teacher prepares everyone to be quiet and listen to HIS Words being READ without any help from us.
THAT'S IT: ANYTHING BEYOND BEGINS TO BECOME A CULT.
If you dispel the ROLES then we can, like Paul at Troas, DIALOG until midnight. Spiritual education takes place in the homes with godly mothers.
That AUTHORITY as authentia as SELF-AUTHORING can not be extended to who says where the couch goes in the new house.

Silence of scripture
|September 17 2016, 11:56 PM |
Sorry, I diverted the topic...I misunderstood where you were headed. Are we discussing silence of scripture, and the fact man cannot use his own judgements, as delusions will follow? This is one of the ways that satan distracts from the Word, by making us believe something is harmless, and at first it really seems that way, but eventually proves a bad decision and sometimes fatal. Anything man can think to invent, will be abused by evil. If we keep our worship in the private place of our spirit or mind, no one can ever take that away from us. We then can worship anywhere or at anytime.. The Lord has already shown us that the preacher craft can't be trusted to remain faithful because evil will subvert from truth, or will not teach the full gospel.truth. This is another lesson that only the Son,Jesus Christ is worthy to reveal the Fathers will, He didn't fail and will never be subverted from truth. This is what putting our faith in Him means, that he has already provided everything, and there is nothing lacking in the knowledge to lead godly lives.
John 4:21-26 (KJV)
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.  Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in 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.  Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
Revelation 5:12-13 (KJV)
Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.  And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
Re: Silence of scripture

It is true that the VIPER or SERPENT is defined as a RACE of people who have always been antagonistic to the Jehovah Who is the Elohim of the Israelites who came out of Abraham. Jacob cursed the Levi tribe and excused the godly people from attending the SYNAGOGUES of LEVI or entering any covenant made with Levi other than in a Civil-Military sense.
Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: In Isaiah 29 and Ezekiel 33 which He referenced the Spirit OF Christ named speakers for HIRE, singers or instrument players. God warned Ezekiel that they would treat his Words exactly as they would treat God's words. These "serpents" as in flutes and bell-metal are defined as NOTHING AT ALL.
The meaning of Levite we can find in the root word in Hebrew means “to join,” to “‘ bind ” (see Lui-than “snaky-monster “) and “joined” or “attached to”–see Genesis 29:34, and also Numbers 18:2, 4 (Hebrew text). This word, says Professor Goldziher, “is but an expanded form of Lui, a serpent,” just as nahash-than, the name applied to the Levitical brazen serpent of the temple, is of nahash, any oracular serpent, as that of Eden. The serpent Nehushtan (” snake monster”) was worshiped in the Jerusalem temple (2 Kings xviii, 4) with incense, and was traditionally said, about 726 B.C., to be the copper, or bronze, serpent-symbol made by Moses in the desert. Let us not forget that we now find in Freemasonry both Boaz and Jachin that are said to be two copper, brass or bronze pillars. Now you have a clue as to where we might find the Levites today.
H3867 lâvâh law-vaw' A primitive root; properly to twine, that is, (by implication) to unite, to remain; also to borrow (as a form of obligation) or (causatively) to lend:—abide with, borrow (-er), cleave, join (self), lend (-er).
H3878 lêvı̂y lay-vee' From H3867 ; attached; Levi, a son of Jacob:—Levi. See also H3879 , H3881 .
H3880 livyâh liv-yaw' From H3867 ; something attached, that is, a wreath:—ornament.
H3882 livyâthân liv-yaw-thawn' From H3867 ; a wreathed animal, that is, a serpent (especially the crocodile or some other large sea monster); figuratively the constellation of the dragon; also as a symbol of Babylon:—leviathan, mourning.
You will also find them CONFESSED to be the FOUNDATION of "musical worship" or "instrumental praise."
Num. 18:1 And the LORD said unto Aaron, Thou and thy sons and thy father’s house with thee shall bear the iniquity of the sanctuary: and thou and thy sons with thee shall bear the iniquity of your priesthood.
Num. 18:2 And thy brethren also of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy father, bring thou with thee, that they may be joined unto thee, and minister unto thee: but thou and thy sons with thee shall minister before the tabernacle of witness.
Num. 18:3 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the tabernacle: only they shall not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar, that neither they, nor ye also, die.
Num. 18:4 And they shall be joined unto thee, and keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the tabernacle: and a stranger shall not come nigh unto you.
Num. 18:5 And ye shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar: THAT there be no wrath any more upon the children of Israel.
REMEMBER THAT JESUS CALLED THE PHARISEES, HYPOCRITES BY QUOTING ISAIAH 29 AND EZEKIEL 33
Matt. 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of VIPERS, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
Matt. 12:34 O generation of VIPERS, how can ye, being evil, speak good things?
for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Matt. 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Luke 3:7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers,<b> who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
Being baptized with Spirit (wind) and Fire in the upper Room gave the Apostles the authority to go speak the WORD (Regulative principle) and those who rejected the WORD were not able to be baptized. It was the VIPERS who would be literally baptized by the Holy Wind (for winnowing) and FIRE. They were-are separated now to be CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.
Their SORCERY references back to the original Babylon Mother of Harlots or in Rev 18 "Lusted after fruits". She and they administer drugs accompanied by AOIDE or singing. That drug is well documented to be endorphins and other drugs. They produce WRATH or the impulse of Fight, Flight or Sexual release.
Modern praise teams (the world's oldest profession) speak and sing in sexual and effeminate terms and YOU.
The Serpent or Musical Enchanter Part A
|September 18 2016, 3:35 PM |
Whatever the Bible writers intended to reveal by alluding to pagan practices or by using well-understood words, it is a fact--however irritating it becomes--that most of the story lines or EPICS (not lyrics intended for the lyre) INCLUDE ways a word that is used in an EVIL sense and rarely in a Spiritual sense.
It is a well known an historically documented fact that the godly people were QUARANTINED from animal slaughter with instrumental prophesying called soothsaying or sorcery.
There is no command, example or remote inference that God's REST meant that He called the godly out to engage in group singing with or without instruments. History and word definitions connect musical sounds to sorcery and making the lambs dumb before the slaughter.
God breathed (Spirit) the Word without METRON or musical meter. Jesus SPOKE only what the Father inspired Him to say. Jesus and others assembled or synagogued many times. There is no hint that they ever sang anything even to teach the WORD as the only thing God supplies. If you paid for something beyond "that which is written for our learning" a viper ATE up your DUST.
SPEAK using the LOGOS word is the OPPOSITE of the ODE in all historic literature.
PYTHON or a serpent guarded the oracle at Delphi. You will remember that Paul cast out the pythian spirit from the young girl. The Greek version is that Apollon took over the shrine at Delphi and had to kill the SERPENT. In Revelation he or it has been unleashed from hell along with the locusts or the MUSES. These become SHEPHERDESSES and Apollon is their "Musical Worship Minister" and the only personified SPIRIT now speaking to those infiltrating and diverting happy churches of Christ. They are providing the sounds of wind, string and percussion instruments (Isaiah 30) and used by God to drive HIS enemies into hell or CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.
Never doubt that Rick Atchley literally DID hear a spirit telling him that Hezekiah's goat burning instruments OF DAVID are now his marching orders to impose "instrumental praise" using the Levites (serpents) and the HALAL praise word meaning to MAKE SELF VILE in the belief that God will not punish the insane.
Dianna, the story of the SERPENT (to fool the clergy says Jesus) has him-her-it invading the garden of Eden as a MUSICAL ENCHANTER(ess). Paul said that Eve was totally seduced like a young bride and Cain (from a musical note) was OF that wicked one. Cain then produced Jubal as the DNA father of those who handle--without authority--musical instruments.
There are two LAMECHs and in the Bible and clay tablets it was the evil side who used musical instruments to force the men to build them temples or ziggurats such as that one at Jerusalem called SODOM and the mother of harlots.
That "evil side" did CAST AS PROFANE (the Halal, Chalal, Lucifer word) the world down and brought about its destruction.
Lucifer the Spirit OF Christ called the singing and harp-playing prostitute caused the fall in the garden of Eden. Both Babylon who was cast into hell with her harps and buried alive harpists and Tyre are types. Tyre, in turn, was the planner and builder of the Temple in Jerusalem built by slave labor and "selling whole cities."
The END-time Babylon mother of harlot's SORCERY defines the BEGINNING-time mother of harlots now leading churches. Mother goddesses could also be male and uses lusted after fruits as ANY religious craftsmen selling themselves in the name of God.
Hung up the harps
|September 20 2016, 1:10 PM |
Psalm 137:1-3 (KJV)
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.  We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.  For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying , Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
Psalm 137:4-9 (KJV)
How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?  If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning .  If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.  Remember, O Lord , the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it , rase it, even to the foundation thereof.  O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be , that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.  Happy shall he be , that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
Perhaps this psalmist understood that the party was over? Seems he was wishing the destruction that had come upon Jerusalem on Babylon?
Re: Hung up the harps
|September 20 2016, 1:35 PM |
David was a king chosen to be a warrior to protect the Jews after God cut the strings and let them have a Senior Pastor set over them.
King David is the KING set over all of those marked with music: the BEAST is "a new style of music or Satyric (cappella) Drama."
The sacrificial system David enhanced were not so kind as to dash the kid's heads in: they burned them letting Moloch FEAST on them and enjoyed their screams.
Good point, Dianna, but watch out for those swords in the hands of the praise singers!
Psa. 149:2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Psa. 149:3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
Psa. 149:4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
Psa. 149:5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
Psa. 149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
Psa. 149:7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
Old David said that God picked him for his sinless perfection. God made the point that He rescued people other than Jews.
Levites: Sun and Fire Worship: early SERPENT worship
|September 22 2016, 2:19 PM |
After Israel fell into idolatry at Mount Sinai and God sentenced them to captivity and death, Moses began his warning by speaking about SERPENT worship. The Bible often uses animals to define types of those OF the World who EAT dust or feed on all of the afflictions of human kind. Religious superstition has been the worst offender. Jesus died to FREE those not OF the World, Kosmos, Ecumenical or the kingdom of the Devil. He is serpent, beast, viper, wolf, lion, goats, cows, bulls. I heard another one about the local terrorists; weasels.
Josephus tells of the sorry tale of buying and selling of "clergy" roles because religious superstition which has not changed from archaic times. In the words of Paul means that "fools love to be fooled." Down through history people have built religious institutions solely for a CUT OF THE TAKE. Too bad for them but they usually end up consumed by worms for "bleeding off" worship due only to God. Lucifer is called the "singing and harp playing prostitute" because he / she / it indwelled people certain "seed of the serpent" to divert all of the time, energy and money of people by the use of musical performance. The first instance began in heaven, then in the garden of Eden and finally (thankfully) about now when the "sons of perdition" unleash the "muses" known to be the operatives of the Mother of Harlots. The SABBATH was given for REST which does not mean rhetorical and musical performance and taking up a collection. The PATTERNISM for REST, READING and REHEARSING the Word of God is spelled out in great detail and God provided no role for human mediators in song and sermon. You should read this whole chapter of Josephus to see one of the UNIVERSAL "patterns" for what is happening in the mega churches:
Josephus even discusses the Sicarri as in Judas Sicarri who were back stabbers. The Judas Bag was not a purse but "for carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments." Psalm prophesied that Judas would try to TRIUMPH OVER Jesus which word means to "blow instruments and 'make a joyful noise before the Lord'." This was the Warrior's Panic song as indeed all of the Instrumental Psalms are parade or BOAST songs. That is because David was KING and not a priest and the musical guilds with "Canaanite names" were under the king and commanders of the Army. Their role was at the temple which had been added as a curse because of MUSICAL IDOLATRY at Mount Sinai and the firing of God and demanding a king like the nations SO THAT they could worship like the nations. God warned them of the PATTERNISM you see in "climbing churches" where the king and croonies consume the funds with a Staff Infection. Not to worry Josephus tells of the sorry tale of buying and selling of "clergy" roles because religious superstition which has not changed from archaic times. In the words of Paul means that "fools love to be fooled."
Down through history people have built religious institutions solely for a CUT OF THE TAKE. Too bad for them but they usually end up consumed by worms for "bleeding off" worship due only to God.

2. Now as soon as Albinus was come to the city of Jerusalem, he used all his endeavors and care that the country might be kept in peace, and this by destroying many of the Sicarii.
But as for the high priest, Ananias (25) he increased in glory every day, and this to a great degree, and had obtained the favor and esteem of the citizens in a signal manner; for he was a great hoarder up of money: he therefore cultivated the friendship of Albinus, and of the high priest [Jesus], by making them presents;
.....he also had servants who were very wicked,
who joined themselves to the boldest sort of the people,
and went to the thrashing-floors, and took away the tithes
that belonged to the priests [Evangelists] by violence,
and did not refrain from beating such as would not give these tithes to them.
So the other high priests acted in the like manner, as did those his servants, without any one being able to prohibit them; so that [some of the] priests, that of old were wont to be supported with those tithes, died for want of food.
Amos 5, 6 and 8 and Isaiah 5 show the relationship between dominant clergy which replaced the Word with "wine, women and song" so that the the common people "hungered and thirsted for the Word" and ultimate captivity and death. Jesus quotes Isaiah and Ezekiel to identify the HYPOCRITES as performance speakers, singers and musicians: John called them Sorcerers. No one PERFORMS "standing in the Holy Places" without INTENDING to bleed off the worship due only to God. Anyone who says that they are praising God has to be a liar and anyone who believes it has to be BLIND and therefore deserving just what they get.
3. But now the Sicarii went into the city by night, just before the festival, which was now at hand, and took the scribe belonging to the governor of the temple, whose name was Eleazar, who was the son of Ananus [Ananias] the high priest, and bound him, and carried him away with them;
after which they sent to Ananias,
and said that they would send the scribe to him, if he would persuade Albinus to release ten of those prisoners which he had caught of their party; so Ananias was plainly forced to persuade Albinus, and gained his request of him.
This was the beginning of greater calamities; for the robbers perpetually contrived to catch some of Ananias's servants;
and when they had taken them alive, they would not let them go,
till they thereby recovered some of their own Sicarii. And as they were again become no small number, they grew bold, and were a great affliction to the whole country.
Because there is NO LAW OF GIVING to support the "Theater for holy entertainment" those who are SOLICITING are robbers. Paul did not want any collections taken AFTER he came to Corinth (that might be 3 months) because any kind of pressure EVEN for the destitute would be EXTORTION and Paul connected that to adultery. Peter also connected "selling learning at retail" to adultery.
4. About this time it was that king Agrippa built Cesarea Philippi larger than it was before, and, in honor of Nero, named it Neronlas.
And when he had built a theater at Berytus (Beirut), with vast expenses
he bestowed on them shows, to be exhibited every year,
and spent therein many ten thousand [drachmae];
he also gave the people a largess of corn, and distributed oil among them,
and adorned the entire city with statues of his own donation, and with original images made by ancient hands;
nay, he almost transferred all that was most ornamental in his own kingdom thither.
This made him more than ordinarily hated by his subjects,
because he took those things away that belonged to them to adorn a foreign city.
The word DEMAGOGUE means one who "apppeases people using the performing arts." However, people finally tumble to the fact that the PASTOR has to fleece the lambs to drive them into the presence of the sounds of "rushing waters" where they CANNOT feed and grow. In the end the tyrant is hated. This is quite identical to The Book of Enoch where Satan seduces people away from the Word with shows and music which means sex.
6. Now as many of the Levites, (26) which is a tribe of ours, as were singers of hymns, persuaded the king to assemble a sanhedrim, and to give them leave to wear linen garments, as well as the priests for they said that this would be a work worthy the times of his government, that he might have a memorial of such a novelty, as being his doing.
Nor did they fail of obtaining their desire; for the king, with the suffrages of those that came into the sanhedrim, granted the singers of hymns this privilege, that they might lay aside their former garments, and wear such a linen one as they desired; and as a part of this tribe ministered in the temple, he also permitted them to learn those hymns as they had besought him for.
Now all this was contrary to the laws of our country, which, whenever they have been transgressed, we have never been able to avoid the punishment of such transgressions.
Ezekiel shows that the Levites caused the downfall of Israel as a nation. In the "idealized temple" they are demoted back to the original, pre apostasy during the Monarchy period, roles of servants. They were NOT permitted to perform priestly roles. ecause these DOMINANT PASTORS are always selected by God to carry out the death and captivity sentence imposed when they first bad mouthed the Word of God and declared it of little value. Isaiah 30 and Revelation 18 shows how God "drums and pipes and harps" people into hell as He beats them and drives them.
