WHOSE MUSIC DO WE LISTEN TO?
WHY WE LISTEN TO GOD'S PSALMISTS
Music comes from two sources. It is either the spirit man singing or playing music, or on the flip side it can be the music of the soul man. Music from the spirit man is directly connected to the Creator, whereas music from the soul comes from knowledge that has been gathered or is the result of our experiences and our emotions. Soul music can come from a person that doesn't even know God or have any connection with Him and is in fact connected to your adversary.
Mankind was meant to be the link or connection between God and earth through the Spirit of God. Adam and Eve had the anointing through speech and song to bring life eternal to all they had dominion over. However, when they fell they lost connection with God's Spirit and the anointing that was on their life departed, leaving the earth and all on it in the condition we find it today. Where there is sin, the Spirit of God departs, taking the anointing, which comes only with God's approval with Him. All of Adam and Eve's descendants fall into this category. This fallen race has the approval of the one that caused their fall, so they therefore have Satan's counterfeit anointing. This anointing brings death to all that will listen to their voice, and the curses brought on their lives through their rebellion are passed from one generation to the next. Now the earth and all that is of dust, including our bodies, is subject to destruction.
7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
17 Then to Adam He said, "Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it": "Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life.
19 In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken for dust you are, and to dust you shall return."
We must now reverse all this. We have to renounce desiring the ability to know good and evil and choosing for ourselves. We must follow the blueprint for our lives, the Bible, and not be shaped and molded by the world's standards established by Adam. We have to obediently dis-fellowship ourselves with fallen man, whose father is Satan to be blessed. This is why we were given the chance to die in baptism to all that is evil and be resurrected as a newborn child of the living God! This rebirth is all very exciting and a really good start, but there is however another existing problem. Our bodies cannot keep up with our spirit and soul that have been reconnected to God and are therefore eternal. Our bodies remain, like all that is made of dust, decaying, even though the curses are removed. So what does all this have to do with music? And:
WHY HAVEN'T THINGS CHANGED
There is no change because Satan and his race of people are daily prophesying and singing things into being, just as Satan did in the garden of Eden. Remember, music is creative or destructive and all they prophesy and sing into being brings us death! You see, Satan knows a secret not much of mankind is aware of. Here it is. (The world and all that is in it was sung into being by Christ, and perhaps even Satan or Lucifer before he rebelled against God.) Let us look at the scriptures to understand.
12 "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations!
16 "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star."
Job 38: 4,7
4 "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding."
7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?"
Ezekiel 28:13 speaks of the Devil:
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: the sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes was prepared for you on the day you were created.
There is much I could say about the creature that mislead mankind in the garden, that I will discuss in another teaching sometime, but for now let me say this. Satan very much understands music and what the anointing that is on it can do. As heaven's original praise leader, he also knows that the different notes and chord structures affect the organs in the human body, as well as our mind and emotions. In fact all of creation is affected by song for good or for evil. He has used this knowledge to transform the earth that we were to have dominion over into a decaying mess. Now, through soulish intellect, songs are birthed daily and as we sing and enjoy them, we destroy the planet ourselves!
MUSIC IS CREATIVE, IT CAN BIRTH GOOD OR EVIL
Yes, Satan has perverted man through his music and we, and this realm we live in, have become more like Satan than God. Our pets die, all creation is in ruin, because of the song of the enemy that "we sing"! We help him create our own tomb. How he has laughed all these years as we sang the moldy old hymns full of the false doctrine and lies of Babylon. He sits smugly in control as we sing and dance to the worldly rock music that is promoting rebellion and death. I find it evilly prophetic that this music is called "rock", since Jesus is called the "Rock" of our salvation in the Bible. Science understands much more on this subject than we as the church comprehend!
Science (both physics and chemistry) prove and agree that all matter resonates or vibrates at its own unique rate. This rate, or frequency, can be made up of a single frequency or a group of individual frequencies, leaving a unique keynote signature for each and every part of matter (living and dead). This can be proven by such techniques as NMR and light spectroscopy. However, we as humans are only capable of identifying the following ranges: Hearing between 16Hz - (16,000-20,000) Hz
Voices between 70 Hz - 9,000 Hz
Our brains between 0Hz -32 Hz
Electro pain therapy works on this exact principle: our brains are capable of detecting and are affected by frequencies well below that of our hearing. Thus, one can prevent or cause pain by simply stimulating the brainwaves with specific frequencies.
Pain relief and relaxation 2.5 Hz
Alcohol addiction 0.287 Hz - 2.15 Hz
Our bodies are affected by frequencies everywhere along the Electromagnetic spectrum. Physics as well proves that even the solar system, in fact the whole universe, contributes to this "cosmic song". Each particle of matter resonates and plays its keynote structure, together forming a song. This overall sound, or song, constantly changes with the differing positions of the planets, stars and other cosmic bodies in relation to each other and especially the Earth. There are many other factors involved that are too long to go into in a single teach.
One can simply put it this way: that nature, human bodies, Earth, the Solar system, the Universe and creation "sing". Each song and all the songs put together can and do in fact affect the human cells, behavior and brain patterns!
What this all adds up to is: sound, music, and song can and does affect you, and can even cause long-term effects upon your brainwaves and human behavior. You see, our bodies haven't changed because Satan, through his song, has altered our minds and bodies, causing us to be out of tune, or not in harmony, with the rest of creation. The whole of creation eagerly awaits for us to understand this knowledge and begin to listen to songs sung by the creator to be renewed, or spiritual songs containing truth so all can return to normal.
Hebrew scholars that translate Hebrew to English also have a better comprehension than most of us do concerning music. For instance, in the Hebrew section of the Strongs Concordance, the word for voice (qowl) that is used throughout the Old Testament is number 6963. I'm going to print it out so you can see that every where the word voice in the Bible is used, it could just as easily have been translated as proclamation - sound or sing.
6963 qowl (kole);
or qol (kole); from an unused root meaning to call aloud; a voice or sound:
KJV-- has translated this word as + aloud, bleating, crackling, cry (+out), fame, lightness, lowing, noise, + hold peace, [pro-] claim, proclamation, + sing, sound, + spark, thunder (-ing), voice, + yell.
Unfortunately the Bible was translated through the understanding of the church of that time. The truth is, God's voice was heard in the garden, Satan's voice was heard by Eve, or we could say, God sang, or God's song was heard in the garden, and Satan's song was heard, etc. We are still listening to the songs of Satan and God today. I, for one, do not want to listen to songs that are filled with the lies of Satan like Eve, or the music that is being sung by people not born again or even if born again, not separated from the old race of people in their hearts. I don't want this perversion and death reproduced in me! The word, our blueprint, says a little leaven spoils the whole lump. I want to be shaped and renewed by truth through songs God gives, if my soul is soothed and shaped through music, then I want it to be God soothing and shaping me!
17 The LORD your God in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will quiet you with His love, he will rejoice over you with singing."
A DEEPER TRUTH
If we make the choice to eat the lying fruit of Satan's songs, then just like Adam and Eve, our spirit man will have to die also according to God's spiritual law.
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Scripture warns us, we must worship our God in spirit and in truth. He will not receive an unclean, tainted sacrifice of praise from His people any more than He would receive an unclean sacrifice of any kind. We are to be a separate and clean Royal Priesthood if we are called to government (see the laws concerning God's priests) and our message must be pure and clear to bring renewal.
And for body members, those not called to shepherding positions, the word says we must be a holy nation, a special treasure - one set above the other nations. We must speak and sing truth to the nations for restoration. Sadly, much of the church does not know to adhere to these scriptures. As the angels of destruction pour out God's wrath on the unclean, religious Babylon (the old church) and the Beast she rides on (man's systems), many so-called Christians will be so in the image of Satan rather than becoming the image of the Last Adam or Christ, that they too will experience the wrath of God. Right now the true church is experiencing the tribulation of Satan, and the lukewarm and compromising church is allowed to continue on as though there is nothing wrong (just as in the day of Noah). They eat the wrong fruit and drink from polluted waters and sing songs about it. They do not even realize that the Spirit of God has left them, their spirit is dead, and they have become the twice dead found at Jude, the twelfth verse.
12 These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves. They are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots;
These were dead as Adam, born again through Christ, but returned to the world, its ways and people, to die again forever. Do you listen to their songs? Whose song do you sing? Are you just hearing the truth on this subject, or are you understanding? These are questions God's remnant people must honestly ask themselves. My people die for a lack of knowledge and I reject them because they reject knowledge God said at Hos. 4:6. and because of this (concerning government) they can't be a priest for Him. In other words, you can even miss your call to service!
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being a priest for Me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
So the next generation born to those who refused to study spiritual law and would not adhere to truth is already tainted as well! Now we can better understand why their descendants must be born again to be released from this curse. Concerning God's people that are not of the government, let's look on down to verse nine.
9 And it shall be: like people, like priest. So I will punish them for their ways, and reward them for their deeds.
You say that's the God of the Old Testament. Well, as stated before, He is the same yesterday, today and even forever! See 2 Tim. 3:1-7.
2 Tim. 3:1-5
1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
When you listen to the music of people you don't personally know, how can you be sure you are not eating the above fruit? Perverted truth reproduces perverted people, be it spoken or sung!
Your songs must be in harmony with the cosmic song, or the creator's song, so your body of dust can be altered back to perfection. Besides, you don't want to be found spiritually naked or dressed improperly, nor do you want spiritual robes that are spotted and wrinkled by the world's music or that of Babylon either. Let's look at the definition of robes in Greek in Strongs 4749.
4749 stole (stol-ay');
from 4724; equipment, i.e. (specifically) a "stole" or long-fitting gown (as a mark of dignity):
KJV-- long clothing (garment), (long) robe.
4724 stello (stel'-lo);
probably strengthened from the base of 2476; properly, to set fast ("stall"), i.e. (figuratively) to repress (reflexively, abstain from associating with):
KJV-- avoid, withdrawself.
These spiritual robes are awarded as we obediently separate ourselves from the world, its religions, and governmental systems. This includes the world's music, the dead or lukewarm church's hymns, and all the glorious war songs.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
This warning is pretty plain.
Amos 5:23 speaks to the wicked:
23 Take away from Me the noise of your songs, for I will not hear the melody of your stringed instruments. We should be just like our Father.
God doesn't mince words, change His mind or make exceptions. This message is for all of mankind and should be proclaimed, voiced, sounded and sung by us, the church triumphant, the children of God!
