Music in the worship

What does God want?

Music is melody,  There are two kinds of music, vocal and instrumental. Under the Old Testament and Moses law, God allowed instrumental music in the worship. Now he tells us, "The times of this ignorance God winked at, but now he commandeth all men everywhere to repent"
Paul states the kind of music that is pleasing to God, "Speaking to yourselves, in Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, SINGING and making melody IN YOUR HEART to the Lord"  Eph 5:19  "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom,  teaching and admonishing one another in Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord; And whatsoever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, givng thanks unto God and the Father by him"  Col 3:16-17

Back to sermon subjects

What does God command?
He says, "if  you love me keep my commandmends" Jn 15:5 God has never deviated from what he said for us to do.  If man who is the one who does the adding the instrumental music to the worship, then it is man who transgresses God's law. God plainly has John to write in Rev 22:18-19;  "Whoso addeth to the words of the book of this prophecy, the plagues of life shall be added unto him that are written in this book; Whoso taketh away from the words of this prophecy, his name shall be taken out of the book of life and his place from the Holy city"

Keeping God's commandments:
It is very vital that we keep his commandments, it is a must if we want to inherit the home in heaven.  Jesus says, "in my Father's house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you, and If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself that where I am, there ye may be also" John 14:2-3
Is it important to you to follow the scriptures as Christ and the Holy Spirit gave them to you?  Read Matt 15:9 Gal 1:8-9
