Listen, My Brother and Sister in Christ! Learn about music and the Christian music industry. Why? Because it is very important for you at this time. How can you worship without knowing the God who you worship? Every offering to Him must be pleasing to Him. This is why the story of Cain and Abel is for your learning (Genesis chapter 4).
The bible is clear about music. To help you a little, here is a video on this topic. A young person on Youtube responded to this video below. I thought it was important enough to share with you. Think about what it means to be a true worshipper of God versus the contemporary Christian music industry of today.

Chinwendu Chinwe 1 month ago (edited) Let me share…ask God what you’re unsure of and He will answer. There is a line no doubt and anything that crosses over, leave it. Just as there are different books speaking on different areas of life…so it is with music.
God is the creator of music, Not lucifer now satan. There is praise music, worship music, life experiences music, warfare music, declaration music, celebration music, etc, etc and each part of the world and culture will have different types of music to accompany what they are sharing. The source and the message are of great importance. If a person, who is an agent of satan publishes a book or writes a song with good words…will you own it? If the source is Elohim and the person is God’s person, who says the music has to sound like white people’s music to be acceptable to God? Please, note, the brother who was delivered, praise God, was in spiritual battles in many areas (us too) but to say all rappers who are followers of Jesus are bad….not so. Many of them are directly going against the world’s music and many people have come to accept Jesus via certain types of rap music. Thus, the heightened attack against it and the artists. The followers of Jesus are causing much damage in the kingdom of darkness. Many young people who the devil controlled through and through broke from darkness into light via rappers who follow Jesus. Please pray for them who are I Am’s because the battle is fierce. The devil wants to dominate everything that surrounds us and eliminate all that is of God…I say no way, never!
My Response to Chinwendu Chinwe
I agree with you that you can’t always judge a book by its cover. However, the Bible is Clear about Music. Jubal is the Father of Music (Genesis 4:21), NOT Lucifer (The Devil, Satan, The Anointed Cherub). Many people were taught from Ezekiel 28 that Lucifer created music because of these two words, “tabrets and pipes.” Tabrets from that verse were misinformed because it is the only word translated for “setting” (timbrel) and not a tambourine we have today. Pipes from the same verse are talking about sockets. The workman or jeweler mounted the precious gems from gold since created. We can not go from precious metals to music. What?! And by the way, Jesus the Messiah created Music, according to John 1:3, “All things were made by him [The Word of God, Jesus Christ]; and without him was not anything made that was made.” NO MUSIC Genre saved anyone. Only the Holy Spirit of the Living God prompts you to confess Jesus as Lord or worship God. However, we are not out of the equation if we are in Christ, we are to discern and “test the spirits to see whether they are from God” (1 John 4:1). Many have a bad habit of just believing what they heard instead of what was taught by the Spirit of God (not traditions of men). Ask the Father God he will help you if you honestly want to know about music and worship. It is always better to read the whole chapter on a topic and not remember a verse of scripture out of context. As we continue to grow into maturity in Christ, we must get understanding before speaking about it. There are too many so-called Christians drawing True Christians away from the True Faith. The number one thing to learn for ALL True Christian is NOT to conform to this world and call evil good.
What do you think? Please share your thoughts about Christian music or the music industry in relation to Church music. Thanks!
