MUSIC

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: 1 Samuel 16:14-23

…The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes was prepared for you on the day you were created.

Ezekiel 28:13(New King JamesVersion)

When King Saul was tormented by an evil spirit, “instrumental music” was used to drive away the demons. Dear friend, if music can drive away demons, surely it will be able to attract them too.

Many people suffer from depression because they do not know how to create the right atmosphere for their lives. Instead of having “worship music”, they listen to secular music. Instead of listening to preaching, they listen to political discussions and the bad news of the world.

There are biblical accounts which warn us about playing the wrong music. Satan, once called Lucifer, was created to worship God. Music was actually ingrained in him when he was formed. Lucifer was created with timbrels and pipes. Since he fell, this gift of music has been corrupted and used to fight against God.

Every Christian must be careful of secular music no matter how harmless it appears. Christian musicians must not play secular music if they want to be truly spiritual. Watch what you listen to because it may be attracting demons to your life. People become charged with spirits of lust and violence when they listen to certain music.

The glory cloud came in because musicians and singers were doing the right thing, (2 Chronicles 5:13) Surely, we must learn from this account that the right kind of singing and the right kind of instrumental music will bring in the presence of God.
