Lucifer’s Music Solo

.

.

.

.

.

Now any biblical discussion about the music of this world and even in the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Paradise_Lost_12.jpgChurch 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: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. 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… “theLucifer - By Gustave Dore - Wikimedia - Public Domain 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”!

LUCIFER’S EARTHLY OFFICE

.

Now it could be conjectured about Lucifer’s position in Heaven, or perhaps about himStuck Lucifer ca-1890 - wikimedia - public-domain being the chief choir director in Heaven.

.

But we do know that Lucifer was cast out of Heaven and now is known as “the god of this world” (see 2nd Corinthians 4:4).

.

And we also know that he is called, “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2

.

And given these three facts (his in-built musical instruments, his being “god of this world”, and his being “the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience”), then it is not too difficult to deduce that this fallen angel continues his musical abilities right here in this fallen world, Planet Earth!

PRIDE CAUSED LUCIFER’S FALL!

.

But the big point is, that it was Lucifer’s beauty which caused his heart to be lifted up.

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

And because God has warned us not to be lifted up in our own hearts, one would think that Christians, above all others, would be taking precautions, not to allow ourselves to follow in Lucifer’s footsteps!

.

For anyone who has performed some artistic ability in public arenas, there is an undeniable swelling of pride, especially when one receives praise over that performance. At times, this swelling of pride can almost reach the point of a narcotic-like rapture!

.

And so, it is not hard to imagine how Lucifer allowed his musical abilities to go to his head.

.

Just imagine how he felt, with all the angels of Heaven admiring his beauty, for all those eras of time.

CHRISTIANS: WALK CAREFULLY!

.

And so, with this having been said, it should be of utmost priority for Christians to take every precaution against putting our own selves in any situRock Christian STP 2010 Pomona wikimedia public domaination which might cause that same spirit of pride to swell up in our own heart!

.

Unfortunately there seems to be a general disregard and carelessness among God’s people today. As a matter of fact, like never before in the history of the Church, Christian music artists are, “rushing in, where angels fear to tread”, in the performance of music. Yes, many Christians, young and old alike are imitating the world, becoming solo artists, in a day when the music world has become filled with idolatry and sensuality!

.

And, sad to say, the church-world has adopted the ways of this Babylonian world in the area of music.

.

And it is not hard to deduce that instead of following Christ, we are following Lucifer’s poor example!

DAVID SANG SOLO

.

Oh yes, David and other psalmists strummed a little stringed instrument, and eiDavid Playing Harp - www.thebiblerevival.com - US Public Domainther sang, or spoke their psalms.

.

And so, this would be considered a solo performance.

.

But that is far different to what we see and hear in today’s Christianity. There is a concerted effort in today’s Christianity to emulate the music of the world. Sensuality is a big part of much of today’s Christian music!

.

And many singers make a conscience effort to sound “sexy”, as they strain their vocal chords to imitate the singers of the world.

.

And combined with the very sensual musical styles that are popular today, such current music has become a key ingredient in the wine of Babylon, which the Christian community is now being served!

SEVERAL NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS!

.

It is recommended that all those who have been caught up in this Luciferion idolatry, either as performers or as listeners, should really consider whether it is wise to play so near to the very edge of Hell’s abyss!

.

And all those who claim to be followers of Jesus, would probably do well to take two precautionary steps, so as to not fall into Lucifer’s sin:

.

1. stay away frhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:US_Navy_021224-N-9867P-023_Sailors_and_Marines_sing_Christmas_carols.jpgom all forms of sensual music.

.

2. stay away from all solo performances, if the main emphasis is on performance, rather than on Christ.

.

Yes, in every area of life, to simply do as Jesus would do, is by far the best way to do things. And notice that Jesus did not do any solo performances! He only sang in groups, singing hymns (like the happy little singing group in this photo!)

.

And for those Christians who are avid music fans, there are likewise several precautionary steps:

.

1. Stay away from all music that has an air of sensuality.

.

2. Be temperate in all things: even in the amount of time devoted to music.

.

After all, Jesus was temperate in all things!

REVELATION 12 WRITTEN IN HEAVEN

.

“And there appeared a great wonder (or sign) in heaven; a woman…And there appeared another wonder (sign) in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads…And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God…And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Rev. 12:1, 3, 6, 15

.

Here is a sketch of this Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12. This is the Winter Constellations of Signs Of Heaven. Besides Orion and his Horse, we also see pictured in this sketch, the Dragon of Revelation 12winter constellations

.

This Revelation 12 Woman Constellation is fleeing. As you can see, the Dragon Constellation is spewing a flood of water in her direction, as is written… “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Rev. 12:15. This wave of water represents Satan’s lies, and his false teachers who tell those lies.

.

GOD’S MESSAGE: FLEE!!

.

Beholding the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation in winter, it seems that God is trying to get a very important message across to His people: that His Church is to flee! But what are they to flee from? Well, you can go to the article titled “The Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation”

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth is The Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation head is of Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.

SHE’S FLEEING TO THE MOUNTAINS

.

But beside the dragon, is she fleeing from anything else?Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

The opening verse in this article, is a passage which is found in three of the gospels: Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Here is that passage again… “But when ye shall see the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:” Mark 13:14. OK, so God’s people are to flee from the Abomination of Desolation. But what is the Abomination of Desolation? And how does this wave of water coming out of the Dragon’s mouth tie in with the Abomination of Desolation?
