1 Samuel 16:23 KJV
[23] And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.

Usually you hear that evil spirits use music for their nefarious ways.
What gives?
Seem to me Godly music refreshed Saul and fresh not music , drive out evil spirit.

Play the “audio Bible” on Bible Gateway. Begin with Matthew - He represents The Lion which is The Coming King.....amen.

Every devil, demon and evil spirit MUST bow to The Lion for He is The King of Kings and The Lord of Lords and with Him is The Lamb. The Mercy of God is The Highest Authority. He is Salvation and safety from ALL evil.

There is NO OTHER. It is ONLY The Lion and The Lamb of God.

Play Matthew. :love:(y)

Then maybe we should fire the pastor/preacher and replace him with the worship team? Lol

I didn't say that

I quoted scripture to illustrate how powerful it is

David played the lyre to sooth Saul and one could surmise that he would sing songs similar to the Psalms or a Psalm itself.....Music is set to 4 beats per measure, the same as the human heart and has the ability to move the soul. It is in essence very spiritual and many people have understood this throughout history.....I forget the name of the Chinese emperor that stated clearly that if you want to change a society, do it through music. I play guitar and have noticed how the music being played has an ability to lift the soul, make sad, happy, more aggressive etc......It is a proven fact that classical music next to a potted plant will cause the plant to thrive, whereas heavy metal will stunt the plant's growth and possibly even kill it......Just some observations
really? no wonder finns are so depressed people. many here love heavy metal. metal is satanic evil music thats proof there. lets just be honest you see these guys dress in all black, many paint their nails (effeminate behavior) and have long hair (not ok for men) and its all about death and darkness. they make occultic symbols and references. anyone who thinks thats of God is really dumb and ignorant and spiritually blind as bat lolz.

i heard one preacher say its about the beat. i cant remember what he called it, but there is a certain backbeat that is from voodoo that mainstream music uses they got it from some guy in new orleans in the early 1900s.

did it say what music lifts the soul and make more happy? i never got into classical music like my heart will go on make me cry. what should i listen to to increase happiness?

Is that a play on 'Eve of Destruction' or Sympathy for the Devil'? (don't mind me, I'm in a giddy mood),... maybe, like Saul, I need some music.
Hehe not sure, but the bird was head banging to it lol.

Music is a amazing thing it starts with One single sound all music starts with one note.

Oh, yes there are certain beats that are evil in nature. Even some commercial jingles use these evil beats. If not an evil beat then suggestive lyrics. Sometimes a dark spirit hums a familiar one into my ears, and it seems to stick there. I have some hymns memorized so I just replace the stuck melody with a hymn, and presto bad tune gone. :cool:

What is worldly harp music compared to spiritual harp music?
David wrote a lot of psalms, right? And these, a lot of them, were played to music.

Perhaps David played the music that went with one of his Psalms. And that melody reminded Saul of the song and calmed him.

I trust you have the spiritual discernment to see what is from God and what is not.
It was a qeton in which I said 'I guess'. Avn' claimed anything of the sort especially instrumental harp music.

It was a facetious question. I didn't say it either. Notice, I ended it with a 'lol' meaning I was just being funny.

Yes perhaps, but even in that case it would take words to make instrumental music worldly or spiritual, and then, only by association.

David's music probably would be to give glory to God for he was a man after God's own heart, so maybe by David praising God with his music was ministering to Saul like in a prayer like activity for Saul, and it refreshed Saul for God answered the prayer of David for Saul and the evil spirit left Saul.

It would be like us praying for our family which David was praying for Saul and using music as a tool to praise God which calmed Saul which mainly it was the intervention of God upon Saul because of his servant David.

The way music is played. The sounds. Chord progressions. Beats. None of that is spiritual in nature.
By your logic Christian's that play metal are evil. And classical musicians who are satanists are playing good music?
You used the word "proof" but provided zero proof. Simply quoted an outdated and silly film. Well, partially quoted.

Is it not true satan takes what's intended for good and uses it for evil. Funny how so many Christian's cherry pick when that applies and when it doesn't.

Tell me again about metal being satanic...

if i want metal i rather listen to the real metal, not corny christian dorks acting cool doing metal, thats just cringy to me. thats like ozzy osbourne trying to sing a gospel song in church just doesnt fit. its just my offensive opinion. i know most today will not like it. thats ok with me. i will leave this here wont get into pointles debate
