WHAT IS MUSIC AND WHAT PRODUCES IT?
Music - vocal or instrumental sounds
Instrument - A device used to produce music.
*the mouth produces music and an instrument produces music.
THEIR ARE TWO SCRIPTURES IN THE ENTIRE NEW TESTAMENT THAT TELLS US TO USE MUSIC IN CHURCH SERVICES AND HOW TO PRODUCE IT DURING CHURCH SERVICES
Colossians 3:16 Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.
Ephesians 5:19 singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts.
*Moses and the Prophets say use the mouth and instruments to produce music but Christ say use the mouth during his church services
THE OLD TESTAMENT PROPHETS DO NOT HAVE AUTHORITY TO DECIDE HOW MUSIC IS PRODUCED IN THE CHURCH
Luke 16:29 “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’
Hebrews 1:1-2 In the past, God spoke to our people through prophets. He spoke at many times. He spoke in different ways. But in these last days, he has spoken to us through his Son...
Matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me."
THE AUTHORITY TO DECIDE HOW MUSIC IS PRODUCED IN THE CHURCH BELONGS TO CHRIST AND HIS APOSTLES
Matthew 28:20 Teach them (Christians) to obey everything I (Christ) have commanded you (11apostles).
John 15:20 If they obeyed my (Christ) teaching, they will obey yours (apostles) also.
2 Timothy 1:13 Follow what you heard from me (Apostle Paul) as the pattern of true teaching.
2 Thessalonians 2:15 We passed our teachings on to you by what we preached and wrote.
1 Thessalonians 1:6 We and the Lord were your examples. You followed us.
2 Thessalonians 3:14 Keep an eye on anyone who doesn't obey the directions in our letter.
1 Timothy 1:11 True teaching agrees with the glorious good news of the blessed God.
1 Corinthians 4:6 Don't go beyond what is written.
Exodus 16:4 Here is how I (The LORD) will put them to the test. I will see if they will follow my directions.
Matthew 4:6 (Satan said) For the Scriptures say,...Psalm 150:3-5 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals.
2 Peter 3:16 those who are ignorant and unstable have twisted his letters to mean something quite different, just as they do with other parts of Scripture.
Matthew 24:5 many will come in my name. They will claim, 'I am the Christ!' They will fool many people.
II Peter 2:1 there will be false teachers among you. In secret they will bring in teachings that will destroy you...v2 Many people will follow their shameful ways. They will give the way of the truth a bad name
Matthew 24:11 Many false prophets will appear. They will fool many people.
2 Corinthians 11:14-15 Even Satan himself pretends to be an angel of light. So it doesn't surprise us that those who serve Satan pretend to be serving God.
2 Timothy 3:4-5 They will love what pleases them instead of loving God. They will act as if they were serving God. But what they do will show that they have turned their backs on God's power. Have nothing to do with those people.
Matthew 6:2 Do not be like those who only pretend to be holy.
1 Timothy 4:1 They will follow spirits that will fool them. They will believe things that demons will teach them.
1 Timothy 4:1 some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
1 Timothy 5:15 In fact, some have already turned away to follow Satan.
2 Timothy 4:4 They wont listen to what the bible says but will blithely follow their own misguided ideas.
IN ALL MY EXPERIENCES WITH CHURCHES THAT HAD INSTRUMENTS, THEIR WHERE ALSO OTHER FALSE TEACHINGS INVOLVED
1 Thessalonians 5:21 Put everything to the test.
Ecclesiastes 7:23 I used wisdom to put all those things to the test.
1 John 4:1 Put the spirits to the test to see if they belong to God.
Acts 17:11 They studied the Scriptures carefully every day they wanted to see if what Paul said was true.
2 Corinthians 13:5 Take a good look at yourselves to see if you really are believers.
Galatians 6:4 Each one of you should but your actions to the test.
Job 13:9 Would it turn out well If he (God) looked you over carefully?
