SPIRITUAL MUSIC

beyonce-devilI remember back in the day… when the old folks would say, “We don’t listen to So-and-So, cause they sing the devil’s music.”  Of course I thought that was their bold way of saying, I dislike So-and-So’s music. Then as I grew in the Lord I learned there actually IS such a thing as devil’s music and it’s much deeper than a specific genre. It’s a spirit. Most people think of devil music and they picture Black Sabbath, Marilyn Manson, Ozzy Osborne, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, etc. And for many years I used to think the same way.

 Of course I had to learn the hard way after diving head first into the music industry and discover…. the BEST SOUNDING music is not always “good” music. What defines “good” music anyway? Well that’s the thing. It’s different and it’s personal for each individual. To determine if there’s such a thing as “good” music, we’d have to separate how music SOUNDS from how music FEELS. Can we do that? No! Why? Because it’s spiritual.
One person might say a song sounds great while another might think it’s the worse music they’ve ever heard. When I listen to music, I can’t just listen to whether it sounds good or not. I observe how the song makes me feel emotionally. Happy, sad, empowered, calm, angry, uplifted, etc.

rihanna-drakeIt’s safe to say that every song, every musician, and every album has a spirit behind it. There’s the Holy Spirit, and then there’s evil spirits. Before I was born again, I would submerge myself into music that was led by evil spirits. And it didn’t bother me one bit, because I loved it. I loved the heavy bass, the drums – and how it put me in a state of focus and determination. Every song was high powered by the devil. So I was literally pumping music into my soul that was darkness, and not light. (This applies to TV, music, video games, as well!)

Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

After the Lord Jesus Christ saved me and made me a brand new person, I stopped listening to that music and those singers/rappers. Why? Because their music no longer sound “good” to me. It was like the Lord changed my ears too! The music used to sound like sweet honey and now it sound like vomit. It used to make me feel like Superwoman and now it made me feel like I was being poisoned to death. I’m not making this up. Most secular music makes me nauseated. Should I give examples of devil music? I won’t. Because it’s a spirit. And the Holy Spirit has to CONVICT you of that evil music. Sure, I can tell you names. But those Red Flags have to come from within, otherwise you’ll be avoiding certain artists, instead of avoiding the evil spirit behind the music. I say this because, the devil doesn’t stick to Death Metal, Hard Rock, and Hip Hop. No way. The devil has his hands in Pop, R&B, Reggae, Latino, Christian Hip-Hop, Contemporary Christian, Gospel, Disney, etc…. The devil doesn’t care about genre. If the artist opens themself up to be used by Satan, then he’ll use them. Period. So if I give you a list of musicians to avoid, it’s pointless.

Abide in Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit will lead you and guide you into ALL truth. You don’t have to worry about avoiding So-and-So. The Holy Spirit will send you Red Flags – telling you to turn that mess off. It’s poison. Don’t listen to it. You won’t need a list. You have God dwelling in you!
 .

I don’t know if any music is sung in Hell, and I don’t plan on finding out!

2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
