The Power of Music

July 11, 2006

Here’s some amazing verses:

2 Chronicles 5:13-14  when the song was raised, with trumpets and cymbals and other musical instruments, in praise to the LORD, “For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever,” the house, the house of the LORD, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the house of God.

1 Samuel 16:15-16  And Saul’s servants said to him, “Behold now, an evil spirit from God is tormenting you.  Let our lord now command your servants who are before you to seek out a man who is skillful in playing the lyre, and when the evil spirit from God is upon you, he will play it, and you will be well.”

2 Kings 3:15  But now bring me a musician.” And when the musician played, the hand of the LORD came upon him.

Ephesians 5:18-19  be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with all your heart,

Are you ready to sing?  Or at least listen to singing?  One of our church members is a gifted musician and likes to take largely forgotten hymns and re-present them to us.  Click on this link and then comment and tell him to hurry up and upload some more!

    there’s something at the edge of your mind and you don’t know what is
    something you’ve been hoping to find but your not sure what it is
    and then the music starts to play and it all come crystal clear
    the music does the talkin’ and it says what you want to hear:

    I’m young, I’m wild, and I’m free
    Got the magic power of the music in me!

    So… I like singing (though trust me, you don’t want to hear me do it), and particularly how easy it is for hymns and the like to fix scripture in your head. It would be helpful to me if someone would just put the whole book of Romans to song so that it would be easier to memorize. I should probably just look up what hymns are based off of Romans, but I sure don’t know how to find that… there should be like… a hymn concordance online or something. I wonder if cyberhymnal has that feature. *goes off to look*

    Excellent song. I enjoyed it.

    Here’s a blog entry I wrote a year ago on the topic of music and it’s power.
    Thought some of you might like to read it.
