Music and Happiness Synonymous
What it do fam!
Music and happiness go together. When you are feeling happy; when you are feeling
unwound; when you are feeling free of care, you start to sing or rap or whatever.
And when a guy has had a few drinks and the alcohol starts to take effect and he
starts to lose his inhibitions, he starts to sing. You have heard of the old singing
drunk. Why? Because singing and music tend to go together with that feeling of contentment,
of joy, and of peace.
Have you ever sung in the bath? Come on, of course you have. You see, you are relaxed
there in the beautiful warm water and you are feeling like just letting go of the
cares of the day, and are feeling wonderful and relaxed. You feel like you could
just lie there all night, and you just burst out in song. And that small bathroom
makes you sound like one of these great opera singers. So you let rip. It is amazing
how good you sound, until you get out of the bath and come into a normal room, then
your voice sounds all flat again. Man, I just wish I could live in a bathroom all
the time so I could sing Tyrese, don’t you?
You see, singing is an expression of the heart. It has a terrific power to lift your
spirit, to lift your soul, and to stir your emotions. Music also holds the key to
releasing God’s power into the earth. That is what I want us to talk about
Start of Music
Where did music come from? When did it start? Was it invented by the Beatles or one
of the early guys like Frank Sinatra or Bing Crosby? When did it start? How far
back do we have to go in history to find out when the musical instrument was made,
when music first began, and when songs were first created? Well, the Bible gives
us a little bit of a hint.
If you turn to the book of Job in Chapter 38, God begins to speak to Job
out of the whirlwind after he has gone through all his troubles and he has moaned
and groaned and spouted his ideas, and his friends
off their ideas. Eventually God says, "Okay now that you’ve all
given your ideas, let Me give you My opinion."
He calls to Job
and says, "Who do you think you are?
Were you there at the beginning, Job, when I started the whole thing?"
God said to Job
in Job 38:4:
"Where were you when I
[God the Father and original Apostle]
laid the foundations of the earth? Declare if you have understanding. Who has laid
the measures of it if you know? Or who has stretched the line upon it? On what are
the foundations of it fastened? And who laid the cornerstone
the Chief Cornerstone] of it, when the morning stars sang together, and
all the sons of God shouted for joy."
the of the Earth
God laid the foundation
of the earth. And He says to Job
"When I did that; when I put it all in place; when I put the cornerstone there
and the foundation and I laid the earth in place, the morning stars sang together."
Who are the morning stars? What is the Morning Star? The Morning Star is that star
that comes up before daybreak. It is a beautiful bright light in the sky. It is
the light that comes to let you know that day is coming. It was what came forth
before God created His very first thing when He said, "Let there be
When God spoke and said, "Let there be light,"
stars had appeared and there was singing. There was music. God created in the of
Who are the morning stars?
Who Worshipped God
Are you beginning to see why music is so important, and what a power there is in
it? The worship
angels make up, I believe, a third of the angels
of heaven. We read about it in Isaiah
6 where Isaiah
of the Lord
and he said, "I
saw the Lord high and lifted up and His train filled the temple."
he saw the seraphim flying with three pairs of wings. They were singing
and they were crying out and worshipping
in the presence
of a holy God.
If you read the book of Revelation, you will see the songs
are being sung
continuously at the Throne of God and in His presence
There are angels worshipping
time in the presence
of God in the heavenly realm.
"But Thou art Holy, O Thou that inhabitest
[Heb: 'to sit
down (specifically as judge, in ambush, in quiet); by implication to dwell,
'] the praises
That is why God inhabits the praises
of His people. God lives in
music. And when God made man and imparted of His own Spirit into man, He did it
in the presence of music. When God took the power of Spirit and caused Spirit to
make matter, He did it in the presence of music.
Too Be Continued next time as we talk about "The Sounds of Creation."
By the way I wanted to quickly let you know about a new project I’m working
I am creating 5 new music business courses at my Five Fold Davidical School. The
1st course to be released will be called Music Marketing and Networking Online Level
1 Course. It is designed for hip-hop artists and labels that are trying to engage
and influence their fans through social media so they don't waste their time
with those who don't appreciate their craft.
I teach Christian hip-hop artists, music ministries, independent labels, and music
business start-ups get a clear idea of who their target audience is so they can
come up with creative ways on how to use social media to draw in a tribe through
building relationships. I explain that when God is lifted up it becomes much easier
to make it in the music industry, take care of your family, reach the lost, and
generate income according to God's power and anointing.
Don’t worry, I haven’t added you to any lists and I won’t be spamming
you, but if you like the idea and would like to help out here’s what you can
do. I'm thinking about adding some more lectures to certain courses. Here are
