  2. United States ofAmerica PAST Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD… Psalm 33:12

  3. United States of America TODAY Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.Jeremiah 6:19

  4. What Happened? How did America go from a… Philadelphian Church Age Country… …when God had said to the Church in America … I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it… Had Little Strength Kept His Word Did Not Deny His Name Revelation 3:8

  5. …to a Laodicean Church Age Country when Christians say they are… Rich Increased with goods Have need of nothing …yet God says they are… Wretched Miserable Poor, Blind & Naked So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Revelation 3:15-17

  6. …and nobody noticed?

  7. Here is what happened…

  8. The King James Bible Was Replaced By…

  9. Music

  10. 1600’s A Country Was Begun with God’s Word! Philadelphian Church Age Begins (KJV 1611 begins to catch on!) This country was started by people coming from Europe in order to have freedom of religion. The Bible was the book that America was founded upon. The Book was read daily, looked to for every need, was preached from, and was respected to the point that it was believed - as written – from the saved & lost! The first book printed in America was the Bay Psalm Book! Nobody could read music nor did they have the time or desire to study! They just had to survive and they survived with their Bible, not their music!! Early Christians in America had little strength, kept his word & did not deny his name They were rewarded with open doors – doors they could not even shut! Word of God

  11. 1600’s A Country Was Begun with God’s Word! Is any merry? Let him sing psalms - James 5:13 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Ephesians 5:19 Music

  12. 1600’s A Country Was Begun with God’s Word! Is any merry? Let him sing psalms - James 5:13 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Ephesians 5:19 Their only music was sung directly from the Book of Psalms! Considering most people had no clue on how to read music, and also because 'meter' was strictly adhered to formalistic ways, people could not sing Psalms together very well…thus 'Deaconing' was the mode of group singing in church. A young man namedIsaac Watts began to write the Psalms as he saw them and put them to music in his own form as an expression of the gospel. Watts’ as “Father English Hymnody” had a slow start but nonetheless, the influence of music had now begun! O God, Our Help in Ages Past; Joy to the World from Psalm 72, 90, 98 Music

O God, Our Help in Ages Past; Joy to the World from Psalm 72, 90, 98 Come We That Love the Lord; When I Survey the Wondrous Cross Music

  14. 1700’s Parts of a Country Were Evangelized! A Colonial Religious Revival Took Place Called the Great Awakening Thousands of people attended outdoor meetings.Thousands saved. Hundreds of churches were started. Preaching colleges were begun. Major missionary activity began. Religious Liberty & Biblical Christianity was revitalized in the colonies. Subjects - Authority of the Holy Bible, Holiness of God, the need for Gospel preaching! Well Known Preachers William Tennet - Presbyterian Subjects: Authority of the Holy Bible, Holiness of God, a need for Gospel Preaching Jonathan EdwardsCongregationalist - Subject: personal salvation through grace alone! Theodore Fretinghuysen:Dutch Reformed - Subject:Personalredemption Gilbert Tennent – Presbyterian Subject:Evangelism George Whitfield Lit the spark of all the revivals. Subjects: Doctrine of the NewBirth and Justification. Hell-Fire & Heaven Storming Sermons Word of God

  15. 1700’s Parts of a Country Were Evangelized! Because of such musical illiteracy, The Singing School Movement developed – men would travel around and teach people about music. Hymns Books started to become available, although most were just words. Remember, Deaconing & Lining was the way of singing. The Revival Spirit was in need of Revival Music Charles Wesleybegan to write many hymns that were greatly accepted by the people. He wanted his music to 1) bring the unsaved to hear the gospel and 2) for the saint to be uplifted. His music was of conviction, salvation, heaven, the trials & victories of a Christian. His hymns related the spiritual unrest of a soul bound by sin – instantaneously released by conversion followed by a great assurance. No more corporate praise – but private thoughts and feelings within the context of the hymn for person singing. His music relates to Christian trials and victories! Formal Church Music Liberated His music is known for repetition of words and breaking up of tunes. Music

  16. 1800’s Large Cities Were Evangelized! Missionary work was now in full swing around the world. From city to city and including the countryside between cities were all heavily evangelized. Well Known Missionaries The Great Revival William Carey – Father of Modern Missions In America, preachers traveled the country on horses – city to city, farm to farm; they were called Circuit Riders. They were responsible for the 2nd Great Revival also called Camp Meetings! Adoniram Judson - Burma Hudson Taylor - China Well Known Circuit Riders Lorenzeo Dow – often called the devil Ebenezer Loomis Sheldon Jackson, A.B. Earle, Peter Cartwright Billy Bray, George Mueller James McGready – Instigator of camp meetings Charles Finney – from wilderness to entire cities. Word of God

  17. 1800’s Large Cities Were Evangelized! With all these revivals in the city and in the countryside came the opportunities for exciting singing! The camp meeting was ‘famous’ for it’s singing as well as it’s circuit riders & preaching. Next to Preaching was the Singing The hymns written during these times are considered the best hymns ever written. Harmony was very perfect and proper – the design of the music was the same as Japheth’s classical structures. The music was perfectly balanced in every way, including ‘most’ doctrinal content. Great Hymn Writers Fanny Crosby – 5-8000 Hymns William Bradbury / George Root Stephen Foster Phillip P Bliss William Kirkpatrick – SS Songs Music was at it’s purest from Japheth and it carried over into America – thus, along with the KJB, the balance was there and it was pleasing to God! This was the peak of the Philadelphian Era! Music

  18. Early 1900’s Parts of Cities Were Evangelized! Preachers team up with talented song leaders A new ‘text’ of the Bible is presented to America D.L. Moody & Ira Sankey Laodicean Church Age Begins Billy Sunday & Homer Rodeaver R.A. Torrey & Charles Alexander Billy Graham & George Beverly Shea Preaching begins to take a backseat to the music. It’s good music – and it’s good singing, but something is beginning to happen to the words of God! Modern Bible versions begin their subtle move within America! Cults that were started in the 1800’s are now getting some good grip on people’s lives and continue to grow. Word of God

  19. Early 1900’s Parts of Cities Were Evangelized! Music is everywhere in the church service now. Both Psalms and Hymns have been ‘marketed’ and most denominations now have their own song book that teaches their own doctrine, etc. The Bible says - Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord… Ephesians 5:19 Music

Both Psalms and Hymns have been ‘marketed’ and most denominations now have their own song book that teaches their own doctrine, etc. The Bible says - Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord… Ephesians 5:19 Piano is introduced to ‘assist’ in singing. Large Choirs are gathered to ‘make things happen.’ Song leaders use instruments to ‘aid’ in song leading. Musically, the element of rhythm begins its move to dominate the music towards the flesh! Soloists are put into the service to help ‘set the mood.’ Music is called the “hand-maiden” to preaching! Music now makes you ‘feel’ great and helps make the church services appear to feel great and be ‘fun!’ The congregation is now ‘warmed-up’ with music! Music

  22. Late 1900’s Personal Revivals Only - Personal Evangelization The Local Church begins to fade from the scene! I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. Revelation 3:18 Word of God

Only TV “Personality Preachers” Even in KJV Conferences, Singing familes get top billing over preachers! False Doctrine abounds in all media! Women ministers in ‘dead’ churches Satanic Bibles abound in all churches! Words of Jesus Christ are being ignored! Word of God

  31. Late 1900’s Musicians are more well-known than any Bible preacher! There is no preaching going on! They are “artists” – not “preachers!” Preachers are performing musicians! No one notices and no one cares! False Doctrine abounds in music! They are won over to ‘another Spirit’ and ‘another Jesus!’ Media skills necessary to ‘win’ the people! Music is the ‘drawing card’ to church, now! Music DOMINATES the services now! Church orchestras rehearse on church nights Performances instead of Preaching! Heavy emphasis on element of rhythm! Flesh is excited & sought after! And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped? Music

  35. 2000+ Only a few dispensationally correct, rightly dividing, KJB Only, reading & studying to “show themselves approved” churches left anywhere! People have to drive many miles to attend one! Even the Brethren can’t get along doctrinally OR in regards to the walk! Someone who preaches Godly Doctrine AND the Godly Walk is considered an enemy – even from their own! Music IS the church service now! Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst. Amos 8:11-14 The Pulpits are full of Liars Many KJV-Only aren’t “Only!” Many home-schooled, KJV children are leaving their homes AND their KJV Bibles behind when they ‘grow-up’! But they ‘love’ their “Christian” music! Word of God

  39. 2000+ Music has also gone full circle within the country AND in the churches. All three races have shown their influence! Religious music has become a personal god. Music imitates all the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of most Christians. Even KJV believers are tricked by 'good music' that quenches and grieves the Holy Spirit. All types of the world’s music has permeated the church doors to where you can hear any kind of music you want somewhere in some church in any city. Pastors try to ‘reach’ instead of ‘preach!’ Music IS their god! So-called Christian Bookstores have more CD’s than Truth Music has challenged doctrinal truth to the point where musical artists & organizations have established their own 'statements of faith' - and they are far from the words of Jesus Christ. Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols. Amos 5:23 Music

  42. Contemporary Christian Music Is without the true name of Jesus Christ! Is full of filthiness of the flesh and spirit! Has the spirit of Anti-Christ! Is based on devilish, perverted and corrupted new age bible versions! Is only for the moment, not for eternity! Is all for money – so it causes people to err from the faith! Is ‘politically correct’ in its gospel! Is man/woman “star/artist” worship! Is a perverted gospel! Is full of blasphemy! Knows no difference between the holy & profane! Is unequally yoked with a lost world! Is a false gospel! Is of the flesh, for the flesh, feeds the flesh, appeals to the flesh! Is a total departure from the word of God! Is fellowshipping with the world of darkness! … for they have perverted their way, and they have forgotten the LORD their God. Is not accountable to a local church Is ecumenical
