Reading through this thread and others reminds me of the scripture in Gal 6 that mankind will reap the results of what he has sown. Many of those whom attend church have worked on a number of "progressive" changes over the years and have not attended to reprove, rebuke and exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. Spiritual slackers breed all sorts of digression.

It may be a mistake to assume that these people are just mercinary or poorly educated. It is an absolute that according to Jesus anyone who speaks the WORDS God delivered to him will be HATED and abused. At best people may be falling for the musical mark because they are frightened of that which a godly preachers expects.

Jesus said that He didn't pray for the WORLD or Kosmos or Cosmic: this year Pepperdine and the NACC are holding a Cosmic Worship Service with a Jesuit-trained agent from ACU.

Jesus also said that God HIDES from the wise or SOPHIST: these are speakers, singers, instrument players all defined as hypocrites by Jesus pointing to Ezekiel 33.

Revelation 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
Revelation 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
Revelation 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
Revelation 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.


God had turned the Israelites over to worship the starry host and sentenced them to captivity and death beyond Babylon. Being like the NATIONS or Gentiles the Jews with their "covenant with death and held" actually held musical festivals with the dead (Amos)

The "sorcery" word points to an original Babylon mother of harlots: remember that Christ spoke of "Lucifer" being a singing and harp playing prostitute in the garden of Eden."

Many or most are INVITED but only a few or chosen or become the elect as being called OUT of the world.

I don't think that anyone can miss the HOSTS of "angels of Light."

[color=#0000FF" size="3" face="times]For a number of years after the church upheaval in 2001, it was either an "Easter drama worship" or an "interactive Easter worship." (I think the drama has run out of dramatic themes or scenes to portray the resurrection of Christ every year.)

In 2013, it was something else -- at the moment I have no word or words to describe all the events that occurred at the Madison "worship center." No, it wasn't about the children and the Easter bunny or Easter rabbit or the Easter eggs. Rather, adults were involved in the Easter flowering of several crosses in the auditorium -- and this was done during the Lord's Supper while the shepherds' [employed] "Worship Leader" and his co-worship leading team of two men and two WOMEN were on stage performing.

[I'm offering the opportunity for Scripture or anyone who's willing to describe in more detail what took place today at "the worship center." Perhaps, Scripture can document for us what took place from the start of the Communion when the quartet went on stage to deliver the rehearsed, programmed worship, the "poem/narrative" reading, etc.?]

There's so much confusion surrounding the "Easter" observance. At least from the standpoint of what the Bible teaches about the suffering and death of Christ about which we commemorate "in remembrance of me." The New Testament refers to: "this is my body" and "this cup is the new testament in my blood." That's about the Lord's Supper. That is not about the resurrection.

I believe that the "progressive" messengers in "progressive" churches are sending the wrong message. The "Easter Sunday" celebration at Madison and other "progressive" congregations of the church of Christ is so programmed, in the first place, designed for a TV production. "God's [semi-professional] elite singers" are ON STAGE to perform during this [pagan-originated-in-the-name-of-religion] Easter celebration. And that's supposed to be concerning the "resurrection" of Christ.

The placement of "the Lord's Supper" [to remember the Lord's death] in the midst this Happy Easter "celebration" is not necessarily what the New Testament instructs the church to do.

Here's the dilemma that the church should be concerned about. We observe the Lord's suffering and death on the cross on the first day of the week -- this is scriptural. But shouldn't the Happy Easter proponents be willing to prepare to skillfully program EVERY FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK the Easter celebration with the Lord's Supper as part of it?[/color]
Clanging Brass and tinkling Cymbals are SPEAKING IN TONGUES because no one understands you. Not to worry: this is called "breaking away to the archaic" which the progressives claim to be NEW.

Men? this is a MARK and AVOID signal of plagues: bleeding sores in Revelation.

maenad, female follower of the Greek god of wine, Dionysus. The word maenad comes from the Greek maenades, meaning mad or demented. During the orgiastic rites of Dionysus, maenads roamed the mountains and forests performing frenzied, ecstatic dances and were believed to be possessed by the god. While under his influence they were supposed to have unusual strength, including the ability to tear animals or people to pieces (the fate met by the mythical hero and poet Orpheus). In Roman religion, Dionysuss counterpart was Bacchus, and his female followers were called bacchantes.


This is a Mechanical Instrument of Clappers (doesn't that sound like a disease?)



<font face="arial" size="4">European antiquity knew many idiophones. Dancers clappers, held pairwise in the hands of maenads (female participants in Dionysian rites) and other female dancers, often stressed the rhythm of accompanying auloi (the ancient Greek reed pipes). The time-beating foot clappers of chorus leaders, attached to the right foot like a sandal, were known in Greece as kroupezai, or kroupala, and were adopted by Rome as the scabella. Other idiophones included bells, cymbals, the unidentified cheion, and an instrument simply called the bronze (chalkos), probably a metal percussion disk. When the Egyptian cult of Isis {At Mount Sinai} spread to Greece and Rome, her sistrum followed, always in the hands of a priest orrarelypriestess.

We know that 'Until the time of David all musical performance was in the hands of innocent girls or never-innocent females. The SERPENT in Genesis is not a snake--maybe a snake in the grass. The word identifies a Musical Enchanter(ess). The word is derived from brass which is identified as filthy as compared to gold and means 'BELL METAL.' When MadeOffs discovered that they could rattle people and seduce them into various activities they became the FIRST PROFESSIONALS. They were sorcerers or witches and the are to be Cast Alive Into the Lake of Fire.

With the exception of clappers, all these instruments were of bronze; as such they were credited with the apotropaic powers (the special protective powers against evil) accorded this metal in the East. For example, both in various Asian islands and in Greece, it was customary to sound the chalkos at eclipses of the Moon because it has power to purify and to drive off pollutions (a scholiast, writing on Theocritus). According to the Roman poet Ovid, the annual visit of ghosts of the dead to their former homes was terminated by requests to depart emphasized by the clanging of a bronze plate. The thin bronze percussion disks were affixed to metal handles; one from Pompeii is even garnished with pellet bells. Small bronze bells, which made a clanging rather than ringing sound, warded off evil spirits, averted the evil eye, served as sentinels and watchmens signal instruments, or were attached to the handle of a Greek warriors shield in order to terrify the enemy by their clamour. Small bells were also frequently worn on anklets by jesters, dancers, and courtesans, particularly in Hellenistic times. In Rome, tintinnabulae (bells) served as signal instruments or were suspended from the necks of herd animals--again to ward off evil.

The Catholics "baptized" their bells and pipe organs. Modern pagans SANCTIFY their musical instruments and the sorcerers trying to EXORCISE evil as did the Levites and all sacrificial musicians.

Sorry, it won't work: the sounds can also attract the DEMONS or evil spirits. Beelzebub is the Lord of Flies hoovering around sacrificial feasts identified by the instruments will eat your lunch.

The Orphic Pantheon by G. R. S. Meade

http://www.piney.com/MuOrphic.html

You will have noticed that the Trinity delusion, Female worship leaders and what they call musical worship leading to instruments all came crashing down on Churches of Christ being invaded by evil men and women. My old church in Murfreesboro is going to try to restore the "awakening" of Cane Ridge and build 60,000 congregations in their 20/20 vision which seems like Max Lucado to me. That they use the PATTERNISM of the Levites (Brahmin) abandoned to worship the starry host as their COMMAND from "a" spirit to impose "instrumental praise" whatever that be.

The MOTHER CHURCH confesses that she adopted music because it was common to all pagan cults. The Daughters are compelled to obey the Mother (Revelation 17) who uses lusted after fruits as speakers, singers and instrument players PRETENDING to lead you into the presence of God. However, music was always proof of domination of the Mother Goddess. Paul understood that the EVE story was adopted to maker her the MEDIATRIX and that is why EVAH speaks of something filthy. Moses was trying to warn the fallen israelites AWAY from the worship of the mother goddess but Jesus said that the merchants are not allowed to understand

According to Orphic and Platonic theology, Rhea [Eve, Zoe] holds the middle rank between Cronus and Zeus in the Noëric Order. 'She is filled from Saturn withan intelligible and prolific power which she imparts to Jupiter, the Demiurgus of the universe: filling his essence with a vivitic abundance.' (See Taylor, Myst. Hymns, pp. 41-45.)

Plato in Cratylus mystically connects her name (Rhea) with the idea of 'flowing' (from the Greek reo--'to flow') [Rheology, for example, is the science of fluid flow.], meaning thereby simply 'that fontal power by which she contains in transcendent union the divisible rivers of life'.

Rhea, is, therefore, the 'mother of lives,' the mystical Eve (ZOE), the 'mother of all living.'

Proclus (Theol. Plat. Taylor's ed., i.267) says that according to Orpheus, [excluded in Romans 14]

'This Goddess, when considered as united to Saturn by the most exalted part of her essence, is called Rhea; but considered as producing Jupiter, and together with Jupiter unfolding the total and partial orders of the Gods [i.e., the powers of the Sensible World], she is called Ceres.' This is a very important distinction to bear in mind.

Now Rhea, as Ceres, in Hymn XIV, is called 'brass-sounding' and 'drum-beating'. This has reference to the mystical results of certain sounds and rhythm, part and parcel of what the Hindus call Mantravidyâ. I remember reading a curious old French book in the Bibliothèque de la Ville of Clermont-Ferrand, one of the books confiscated from the Minime Monastery of the same town, at the time of the Revolution.

This work dealt with the magical properties of music, and described for what especial purposes the various instruments of music were used in the Temple-service of the Jews.

Now Iamblichus (De Mysteriis, III.ix) goes into the matter of the so-called Corybantic and Bacchic 'frenzies' produced by musical instruments in the Mysteries of Ceres and Bacchus; and in his Life of Pythagoras (xxv) he, further, tells us that:
<font color="#FFFFFF">.....
'The whole Pythagoric school went through a course of musical training,
.....both in harmony and touch, whereby,
.........by means of appropriate chants,
.........they beneficially converted the dispositions of the soul to contrary emotions.


In Romans 14, Paul SILENCED the three sects well known in Rome one of them being that of Pythagoric School.

For, before they retired to rest, they purified their minds of the [mental, says Quintilian] confusion and noises of the day, by certain songs and peculiar chants, and so prepared for themselves peaceful repose with either few or pleasant dreams. And again, when they rose from sleep, they freed themselves from drowsiness by songs of another character.

And sometimes by means of melodies without words they cured certain affections and diseases, and this they said was the real means of "charming".
.....And it is most probable that the word "charm" (epode) came into general use from them.

epôidê A. song sung to or over: hence, enchantment, spell, a BURDEN

It was thus, then, that Pythagoras established a most salutary system
.....of regenerating the morals by means of "music" [Mantravidyâ].'
..... (Op. cit. Kiessling's text, pp. 245, 246; see also Taylor, Iamblichus on the Mysteries, 2nd ed., pp. 130, 131, n.)

Music and Mantras, therefore, were used by the Orphics
.....to attract, or call down, the influence of the Mother of the Gods,
.....who at the same time was the 'Store-house of Life', of Divine Nature.

Thus Proclus in his Commentary on Euclid (ii) tells us that 'the Pole of the World is
.....called by the Pythagoreans the Seal of Rhea' (Myst. Hymns, p. 63).


That is why ALL religious instrumental noise is called Soothsaying, Sorcery or Witchcraft: they have no option because the MOTHER GODDESS

Don't be surprised: the Judas Bag was "for carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments" and was always attached to a flute case. Psalm 41 prophesied that Judas would attempt to "triumph over Jesus." This is the vocal and instrumental rejoicing including slick speakers. Jesus didn't know that he had been abandoned to Satan until Jesus fed him the SOP which is the root meaning of PSALLO: the SIGN the MARK.</font>

Paul and even schoolboys would have understood the message of men like Plato because great epics were presented as the theater of the time. While men like Paul, Peter and John spoke clearly, those PROFFESSIONED in theology will never understand them and do not even try: John Mark Hicks as LU guru claims that he uses THEOLOGY.

http://www.piney.com/ClasPlaCratylus.html

People who see church as "worship" meaning all of the hypocritic arts: speaking, singing, playing are materialists or OF THE WORLD: Jesus doesn't pray for legalists who have to perform something of their own skills. They can not and will not see the spiritual dimension of our world governed by God who IS SPIRIT in nature without blood or bones or flesh or appearance.

A materialistic mathematician can prove that there must be at least 11 dimensions including time. The kingdom must be SPIRITUALLY discerned: no one who has not asked to be a Disciple at the Christ-ordained time and place of baptism will never SEE the kingdom and cannot ENTER the Kingdom. That's why they try to wring the water out of baptism.

When Jesus said DON'T GO THERE: the kingdom is within you. When Israel rose up in musical idolatry of the Egyptian trinity it was a sin without redemption. When Stephen made that certain in Acts 7 and no level of "scholarship" seems to let them read that fact.

In Revelation APOLLO (Abaddon, Apollyon) as the having-fallen star unleashes the LOCUSTS and reading 101a grasps that Paul was speaking of the MUSES. In Revelation 18 the Muses are called SORCERERS and will be cast alive into the lake of fire. And yet the almost total mass religious movement makes a profession out of denying that anyone has denied THEIR right to impose musical performance in YOUR church and YOU should get over it or get out. Isn't that something of BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS right before our blinking eyes: one such raises millions to have planted 60,000 congregations by 2020. Is that madness or what?



<font face="arial" size="4">Since all of the Bible and most recorded history have warned you, why do you suppose so many see the real prophecy coming true before their eyes and they just 'pick and grin'? Many (most) are called (invited) but FEW (almost nil) are Chosen.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

With or without instruments why pay that huge ADMITTANCE fee for the songs and sermons almost all trying to PREVENT you from "hearing the voice of the Victim"?

[color=#0000FF" size="3" face="times]Earlier, Scripture posted: "The Virtual Crosses of Flowers." Part of the message stated the following:[/color]
The "praise team" was supplemented by five on stage, three men and two women, who sang song after song during the Lord's Supper while the attendees were asked to get up from their seats during the Supper and carry their flower to constructed crosses in the balcony and in the lower auditorium, where they deposited them to form a "flower cross" so that all could truly appreciate his occasion....
[color=#0000FF" size="3" face="times]So, the five on stage were the quartet (2 men and 2 WOMEN) plus the "WORSHIP LEADER" Chris Lindsey [male].

[I have a suggestion (being facetious here) for the Madison shepherdship. Why not dismiss the "worship leader" from his secular-made-religious job and let the quartet do the "WORSHIP" leading, which they are already doing anyway? Except all of them get off the stage!!!! (Wonder if the "professional" performers on or off the stage are compensated for holding their MICROPHONES and for whatever motor skills they're displaying to keep the music alive. The employed worship leader's salary may be more wisely used for worldwide mission efforts.)]

This is what I was "afraid of" [but not really -- as I expected for such to happen]. During the Happy Easter Sunday celebration, the performers were on stage not only during the Lord's Supper but also throughout the remainder of the "worship" period.

Well, this Sunday (5/12/2013), exactly the same pattern of programmed worship occurred:

-- Song
-- Song
-- Welcome, Mother's Day Video; Love Feast
-- "Prayer of St. Francis" [song? or Catholic prayer? -- missed it]
-- Song: To the Least of These ["Worship Leader" & Quartet on stage]
-- Communion
-- Song: Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus ["Worship Leader" & Quartet on stage]
-- Offering
-- Song: I Love to Tell the Story #275 ["Worship Leader" & Quartet on stage]
-- Song: Jesus Saves (Contemporary) ["Worship Leader" & Quartet on stage]
-- Message: "Called to be Sent"
-- Song: Lord You Have My Heart ["Worship Leader" & Quartet on stage]
-- Song: Days of Elijah (Charismatic) ["Worship Leader" & Quartet on stage]

{I left close to the beginning of the Elijah song -- howling [Minnie Pearl's version], clapping and body motions -- musical instruments would not have been necessary. Someday, there will be instrumental accompaniment.)[/color]

[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]It now appears that the FIVE "Worship Leaders" performing ON STAGE is a "permanent fixture." The group is now singing (PERFORMING) EVERY "praise" song to/for/before the congregation and its "shepherds" and their wives and Jason Shepherd.

The group on stage, FACING THE CONGREGATION with their handheld microphones, includes the "Worship Leader" (Chris Lindsey) and the quartet (of 2 men and 2 WOMEN co-worship leaders). Watch them clap, snap (their fingers to the music), tap (their feet to the beat of their favorite tune), simulate/imitate the noise of musical instruments, and sway.

Oh, well, they're a visiting team/band from TBN. Just imagine that.

Just what is happening to the Macedonian church? (I meant "Madisonian" church.)[/color]

Donnie, I challenge you to find a local Church that you agree with and enjoy being part of the worship service. Maybe, you could report back here with a positive review to share with us. Who knows, it may be a "wakeup" call that might just change your life.
