God wants to be edified Himself. And we’re to not seek self-edification, but to edify God with all we do. So if you see a person with a great gift, trying to do something to glorify themselves, your own discernment of the spirit tells you that’s wrong.~ William Branham
This site is an endeavor to bring biblically based reflection and thoughtful discussion about music in our churches today. Musings, reflections, thoughts, articles and ideas relevant to music and its influence in Message Churches will be one focus. Articles, quotes, and other published materials pertaining to music, and more specifically, how it relates to churches and the affecting influences will be posted here. The content of this blog (as is the case with most blogs) is my personal opinion based on my understanding of Scripture and the Message of The Hour as brought by William Marrion Branham. Questions and suggestions are welcome. If you have books or articles to share, you may forward them via email. Please sign up to receive email notification of new posts.
Your brother in Christ,
You can offer your ideas to others as bullets or as seeds.
You can shoot them, or sow them;
hit people in the head with them, or plant them in their hearts.
Ideas used as bullets, will kill inspiration and neutralize motivation.
Used as seeds, they take root, grow, and become reality in the life in which they are planted.
The only risk in the seed approach:
Once it grows and becomes part of those in whom it’s planted,
you probably will get no credit for originating the idea.
But if you’re willing to do without the credit…you’ll reap the harvest.
By Richard C. Halverson (Chaplain to the US Senate)
