How Satan Infiltrates Music
NCW 7, December 1993
Q. Yours is probably the only Church I know of which regulates the use of music. Why? Why can't people choose the music they like? Surely what's important is the words, not the melody?
As any music expert will tell you, the beat, tone, cadence and arrangement of music affects human moods. Lyrics, or words, play only a minimal rôle. Even instrumental music can make you feel blue, moody and depressed, or zippy, peppy and upbeat. It can inspire you or drag you down.
Music can invite in demons -- as sorcerers, shamans and witchdoctors well know -- or drive them away. God's music, played on a harp by David, put demons to flight:
In a double prophecy about Tyre and Satan, God tells us through the prophet Ezekiel that Lucifer, before his fall, was originally designed by God as a living, thinking, musical instrument (Ezek.28:13). Satan knows how to make music that can conquer men's minds -- he has been doing it throughout the ages and has been doing it to great effect in the 20th century.
"Whenever an evil spirit came upon Saul, David would take his harp and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him" (1 Sam.16:23, Holy Order Translation).
And Satan's range is impressive. From violent rock music to soothing New Age music, the music of hell is upon the earth. Satan has trained up demon specialists in music who give music to their human followers. Some of the people who produce New Age music, for example, are not aware that demon spirits are secretly implanting this music in their minds. But many are aware and approve.
One particular demon named Koothoomi (also spelled "Kuthumi"), has appeared to a number of New Agers and given them music packaged in the pit. One New Age musician described a visitation by his hypnotic demon music instructor:
New Age music is designed to bring the listener into a peaceful and hypnotic trance state during which demons can easily enter the body and take possession. It has been called "electronic meditation". A number of the New Age instrumentals have hidden subliminal messages. These messages can reprogram or rescript your brain. As one of the best known New Age composers and musicians, Brother Charles, recently told Meditation magazine:
"From far away I heard the strains of an organ with which was mingled the sound of voices so pure and ethereal as to suggest the chanting of a celestial choir...The music was unlike any music I had heard before. It was subtle, yet melodious, sweet, yet devoid of all sentimental lusciousness; at one moment powerful and awe-awakening, at another soft and tender as the caress of an angel's hand. It was my brother Koothoomi playing on the pipes.
"Suddenly, a voice spoke out, 'Listen well, and remember for one day you will give such music to the world'" (David Tame, "The Secret Power of Music", pp.268, 270-1; emphasis added).
"I can open the doors of your (brain's) databanks...As you're listening, the rescripting process is happening automatically viâ subliminally recorded messages" (Ibid., p.21).
The dangers should be clear. This is a subtle form of brainwashing. New Age music -- and instrumental music at that -- is composed by demons who are trained and empowered by their Master to use this music to posses men's bodies. Subliminal messages imbedded in the music aid in this objective. New Age music can easily overwhelm the senses of young people and adults alike. Because it is more subtle and deceptive, it is even more harmful and deadly than any other form of music, including heavy metal.
Remember that the evil powers have a wide range of corrupting practices, from the obviously crude to that which is pure and beautiful. Pure and beautiful? Certainly. You only have to watch TV or films to see that beautiful stringed music, which is undoubtedly from God, is being used simultaneously during scenes where adultery and other immoralities are being committed. The effect is to render the viewer more susceptible to adultery. It is a clever perversion of the senses, using goodness as a weapon in the armory of evil. Be careful! You must analyse all things and become conscious of what is going on around you. All is not as it might seem to be.
The New Covenant Church of God screens music carefully and teaches its members how to discern heavenly music from satanic, and all the myriad shades inbetween. This is one of the functions of the Holy Order. Sad to say, much devilish music is employed in Christian churches today, and Christian youth, unaware of some of the subtle programming built in to secular as well as New Age music, are being slowly brainwashed. The results are typical -- rebelliousness and all the vices of sin.
Music can be harmful -- be sure you understand which kinds are and why.
