I took this picture on a road trip to Ohio. In the middle of riding there, I sighted the Lord our God. Can you see Him?
Listen, My Brother and Sister in Christ! Learn about music and the christian music industry. Here is my response to a young person on Youtube below. I thought is was important enough to share with you. Think about what it means to be a true worshipper of God versus contemporary Christian music industry of today.

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 cultures will have different types of music to accompany what they are sharing. The source and the message IS of great importance. If a person, who is an agent of satan publish a book or write 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 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 is 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 any thing 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 in 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 calling evil good.
Many Christians believe that the combination use of the words, praise and worship, means Christian worship music. How, if God tells us to praise and worship Him only?
Musical sounds and instruments are NEVER to take the place of mankind’s expression in hymns and psalms from the heart to the Lord our God. If music is vital in worship, then why does Hebrew 13:15 tells us to open up our mouths in praise? This is something that we, as Christians, are to be doing each day toward the Creator God.
I could expand on this a bit more but, this is what this website is all about. You have to read what’s available to you to learn starting with our free praise and worship bible study lessons.
In all of our learning from Christian history, music took secondary position to understanding the Word of God. When you know the truth of praise and worship, you are changed by it. Your daily acknowledgment of God from your treasure (your heart) will express worship. Listening to music will never get you to worship God. Music is just a stimulus to stir your spirit towards or away from Him. Many has exchange music for the Holy Spirit; who prompts you to worship by invitation only. But first you are to show forth your love in praise!
Praise and Worship are two separate words used by true acceptable Christians who are willing to worship in spirit and in truth. Praise and Worship is not music.
Music is not worship. Since the popular of praise and worship style genre of Christian Contemporary Music, these words got lost in the mixed. The music industry stole the use of the words, praise and worship. When you think of praise and worship, you think of Christian music. Not you, as the individual to praise and /or worship God!
