But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” 2nd Corinthians 4:3, 4

.

.

.

As this above verse reveals, Satan was long ago given the title: “The god of this World”.

.

This great position came about when he deceived our first parents in the Garden of Eden.

“I WRITE THE SONGS”

by Bruce Johnston

.

There was a very popular song back in the 70’s, with some very ominous lyrics…

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Stuck_-_Luzifer_-_ca_1890.jpeg

“I’ve been alive forever And I wrote the very first song I put the words and the melodies together I am music, and I write the songs”.

.

[Chorus:] “I write the songs that make the whole world sing. I write the songs of love and special things. I write the songs that make the young girls cry I write the songs, I write the songs” “I am music and I write the songs” .

.

Now these were just two stanzas. And they give us an idea of just where this song was going: it spoke of music as being a sort of eternal spirit.

.

And really when you think about it, there may be more than just a little truth to that idea!

“THE SPIRIT THAT NOW WORKETH”

.

One thing we do know about Satan is this: it is said of him… “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

.

And so, Satan, being a spirit, has the ability to work in the children of disobedience. And he is “now working” in the children of disobedience.

.

So then, just how does Satan accomplish this? Does he have some limited form of omni-presence? Well, the Bible is silent on that question.

.

But we do know that he has a vast assembly of angels who also rebelled against the government of Heaven, and as a result, lost their first estate, in Heaven.

LUCIFER’S MUSICAL ABILITIES

.

And so, as, “the god of this world” (see 2nd Corinthians 4:4), Satan now presides over his fellow-angels, as he rules over this lost world.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Paradise_Lost_12.jpg.

Now any biblical discussion about the music of this world and even in the Church would not be complete without at least a mention of Lucifer and his musicianship. So the first biblical mention of Lucifer’s musical abilities is found in Isaiah. Listen…

.

“Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols… How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” Isaiah 14:11, 12.

.

So in these above words of Isaiah, it is mentioned here that Lucifer had music abilities, where it says… “Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and THE NOISE OF THY VIOLS…O Lucifer, son of the morning!”

.

Here it is revealed that Lucifer was somehow intimately connected with viols.

.

These viols would, no doubt, be stringed instruments.

WIND & PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTS

.

Now many theologians also attribute this following passage to Lucifer as well… “thehttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Paradise_Lost_3.jpg workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created…Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee…Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness” Ezekiel 28:14, 15, 17 [condensed].

.

So if both these passages apply to Lucifer, then it is a dramatic testimony to Lucifer’s musical abilities. Tabrets are percussion instruments. Pipes would be wind instruments or organ pipes. Viols of course, would be stringed instruments.

.

Well, you could probably say that Lucifer was a veritable “One-Man-Orchestra/Choir”!

NOW WORKING…NOT JUST SITTING AROUND!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:New_york_times_square-terabass.jpg

.

And so, with his incredible musical abilities, why would we ever suppose that Satan just sits idly by, allowing Mankind to pretty much, “do their own thing”, as the saying goes?

.

After all, it clearly teaches that he is, “now WORKING in the children of disobedience”. 

.

And if he is “Now working”, then just what is he, “now working” at?

.

Well, doesn’t it seem logical that he uses his great musical abilities to compose some of the incredible music that has been produced through the past centuries?

.

Well, yes, of course it does!

SATAN: MICRO-MANAGER OF HIS KINGDOM!

.

It must be remembered that Satan is the high commander of his vast army.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Paradise_Lost_3.jpg.

And it would be utter foolishness to suppose that he is complacent about his war against Heaven!

.

No worthy opponent just sits back and leaves things to chance!

.

Just the opposite, Satan no doubt, micro-manages every detail of his kingdom.

.

And the area of music is no exception!

.

No doubt he is the true genius composer behind the musical compositions!

MUCH MUSIC TODAY, OVERTLY EVIL

.

Now people have no problem believing that today’s music is largely the creation of this genius rebel.

.

After all, a lot of it is very overtly evil.

.

Much of today’s music makes no pretense of being anything, but evil!

WHAT ABOUT “NICE” MUSIC?

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ori_beethoven_BEST.jpg

But what about all the “nice” music?

.

Take classical music for example.

.

How could such nice music possibly be the product of Lucifer?

WHOLE WORLD LIES IN WICKEDNESS”

.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

1st John 5:19 reveals that this entire world is evil…“And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.”

.

So here is revealed that the entire world system is evil.

.

And 2nd Corinthians 4:4 reveals that Satan is, “the god of this world”.

.

CAN EVIL PRODUCE GOOD?

.

So why would we ever believe that classical music somehow rises above the wickedness which envelops this world?

.

Listen to James 3:11, 12… “Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shoppers_on_Dundas,_near_Yonge.jpg

.

As this above passage reveals, we just cannot expect fresh water to come forth from a fountain of bitter water! Oh yes, many things of this evil world have, “a form of godliness”. Oh yes, many things in this world seem harmless, even good!

.

But the Bible forewarns us against being deceived by such counterfeit goodness! Like all else in this deceitful world, music can be deceptive!

.

Music is a language, and as such, can mislead those who are naive and unlearned!

MANKIND’S SENTIMENTS?

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Roads_to_Heaven_and_Hell,_religious_tract,_1896.jpg

.

Now someone will say, “Well all that classical music is just a wonderful expression of the mankind’s sentiments, and aspirations, and sorrows and joys!”

.

Oh yes, but is it an expression of Mankind according to what the Bible says of Mankind?

.

We must remember that this is a world of lies, ruled over by the Father of Lies… “Ye are of your father the Devil…When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” John 8:44

.

And so, the children of this world, are the children of the Devil, who is a liar and the Father of Lies.

.

Therefore, the music of this world cannot be good, otherwise the Bible is wrong!

“A FORM OF GODLINESS”

2nd Timothy 3:5

.

We humans tend to have the naive notion that evil must be overtly wicked.

.false prophet

But Satan is no dummy! He knows that the only way he can deceive the world is to put a “nice face” on his evil kingdom.

.

And so, this evil genius creates many things which have an outward form of godliness, thereby confusing the people of the world. 

.

And even Christians are confused, as they look at all the supposed goodness in the world.

.

And much of the elaborate compositions of so-called Christian classical music have been used within the apostate churches for the past few centuries for evangelistic purposes, making such converts, “two-fold more, the child of Hell” Matthew 23:15.

.

.

.

.

.

GOD GIVE US WISDOM

.

Well, God has given His people enough godly music, so that we do not have to seek after the music of this world!

.

Oh yes, there may indeed be classical music which may glorify Heaven.

.

And so, let’s choose the kinds of music that most closely resembles the music of Heaven, and shun the proud, sensual music of this world!

.

And may the Holy Spirit give us discernment to make a difference between the two.

TODAY’S PRAYER…

“Dear Lord, Let me not be ignorant of Satan’s devices, in his role as, “god of this world”. But let me be, “as wise as a serpent” in regards to just what is behind all the so-called creativity and genius of this world…

LOCATION OF THE REVELATION 12 DRAGON…

.

The Revelation 12 Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months.

.

Wikipedia star-charts winter constellation in West

.

The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. The Dragon’s tail-tip is Pleiades and the lower shaft of his tail is partly of Aries  and Pisces. Then with aid of a dark and starry night, you may begin to connect the mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are made of a few stars: the front legs partially of stars from Taurus . The back legs and rear fin are made of 6 stars from the Cetus Constellation.

.

BODY HARD TO SEE

.

The long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark, starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus .
