Music – Oh Yes! There’s Music!
Music is a unique language, created by the God an given to all Creation, to communicate audibly heart to heart. The whole universe is a symphony which God, the author and director, hears to the fullest and can distinguish every part. That symphony has one message – the glory of God. To “glorify” means to transmit and present all the attributes of the invisible, unapproachable world of the Living God, filling the hearing, seeing, touching, smelling, tasting world with every intimate detail about Him. Why? Check it out.

Mathematics, Music and Harmony in the Universe
The Mozart Effect – our math and spatial reasoning skills improve by listening to classical music… “Music is the pleasure the human mind experiences from counting without being aware that it is counting.” – Gottfried Leibniz
“We all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.”– Albert Einstein
In “The World Is Sound,” Joachim-Ernst Brendt says, “Anyone who is familiar with the theory of harmony knows that every dissonance tends towards becoming a harmony.” After finding this is true for all the universe, he makes the mistake of making the “logical” conclusion, “Harmony is the goal of the universe.” That is true but he and a lot of other scientists neglect to notice that the human being making the conclusion is the exclusion to the rule. Yes, our elemental matter wants to harmonize but can’t… without some pretty serious determination and help from that “invisible piper.” That exclusivity is called free will, which is the unique element requisite for LOVE RELATIONSHIP.
RELATIONSHIP is just another word for HARMONY which is the RESONANT compatibility of multiple wave forms or frequencies. Created, static, limited frequencies have to eventually harmonize (no choice). For the human, the only species with free will, we have to choose to what we harmonize. That is because there is another will or force present which is dis-canticle or resistant to harmony with its Creator. Superficially, we call that force INDIVIDUALISM or SELF but beneath that thin facade lies the evil rebellion against the God of all creation. That’s where the “EAR TO HEAR” comes in. Listening is a choice for humans. Hearing is pretty selective. Example: Mother speaking – child, video game. Hearing is also selective biologically. Humans have a fairly narrow audible frequency range so what God hears requires listening through His ears, the ears of His Spirit dwelling in us.
Colossians 1:16-18 (Amplified Bible)
16For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him.
17And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together).(A)
18He also is the Head of [His] body, the church; seeing He is the Beginning, the Firstborn from among the dead, so that He alone in everything and in every respect might occupy the chief place [stand first and be preeminent].
(A) Proverbs 8:22-31 (Amplified Bible)
22The Lord formed and brought me [Wisdom] forth at the beginning of His way, before His acts of old.
23I [Wisdom] was inaugurated and ordained from everlasting, from the beginning, before ever the earth existed.(A)
24When there were no deeps, I was brought forth, when there were no fountains laden with water.
25Before the mountains were settled, before the hills, I was brought forth,(B)
26While as yet He had not made the land or the fields or the first of the dust of the earth.
27When He prepared the heavens, I [Wisdom] was there; when He drew a circle upon the face of the deep and stretched out the firmament over it,
28When He made firm the skies above, when He established the fountains of the deep,
29When He gave to the sea its limit and His decree that the waters should not transgress [across the boundaries set by] His command, when He appointed the foundations of the earth–(C)
30Then I [Wisdom] was [a]beside Him as a master and director of the work; and I was daily His delight, rejoicing before Him always,(D)
31Rejoicing in His inhabited earth and delighting in the sons of men.(E)

Genesis 1:1-3 (Amplified Bible)
1IN THE beginning God (prepared, formed, fashioned, and) created the heavens and the earth.(A)
2The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding)* over the face of the waters.
3And God said, Let there be light; and there was light.
1. Genesis 1:1 : Heb 11:3
Hebrews 11:3 (Amplified Bible)
3By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible.
*rachaph – root – to brood [relax & flutter, move, shake]
1 [ intrans. ] think deeply about something that makes one unhappy : he brooded over his need to find a wife.
2 [ trans. ] (of a bird) sit on (eggs) to hatch them.
• (of a fish, frog, or invertebrate) hold (developing eggs) within the body.
3 [usu. foll. by over] (of silence, a storm, etc.) hang or hover closely : a winter storm broods over the lake.
adjective [ attrib. ] (of an animal) kept to be used for breeding : a brood mare.
ORIGIN Old English brōd, of Germanic origin; related to Dutch broed and German Brut, also to breed . Sense 1 of the verb was originally used with an object, i.e. [to nurse (feelings) in the mind] (late 16th cent.), a figurative use of the notion of a hen nursing chicks under her wings.
Rachaph – to, among other things, generate a frequency, a musical note. As a conductor, singing the note for all the chaotic frequencies to tune to.
He then spoke, “Let there be light,” transforming the unseen, into the visible. But much more than that providing the essential ingredient for the matter with which He made all that is from what was not.
Each eminence of light is generating its own frequency, musical note, which defines its relationship with those it is drawn to by the Universal Law of RESONANCE. “Clumping” together, they form the elements of the Periodic table, which are the ones we have discovered and numbered, assuming the “atom” is the most basic building block of matter.
No temple could be seen in the city, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its light.
So, you see, every element is a little chamber group, playing their own unique part of the whole symphony of the “Cosmos,” defined – beautiful order. Therefore, each of us “individuals” are not only singers, but our entire body is already playing its own specific part of the Symphony of Creation.
Humans become inflamed by what they surrender themselves to – their Constitutional Right, right? That inflammation builds up pressure until it explodes into the ears, eyes, noses, taste buds or epidermis of the surrounding individuals. The problem with humans is that they are delivered into the physical world with no capacity to know or care whether that explosive projectile is detrimental or beneficial to the senses of the humans affected by it. That includes themselves, by the way. The development of the capacity to know, care and take responsibility is called “person-ality.” Individu-ality” is not able to relate or connect with other people because it is isolated or dis-connected from everything – FROM BIRTH! And if you are in the birthing room, you will hear the song of the response to forced separation! Immediately, we construct our own replacement “womb.” We spend our whole lives making the choices that will EITHER defend our own imaginary “safe place” [my right to myself], which is the definition of clinical dementia, OR connect us with the real world. INDIVIDUAL vs. PERSONAL. INDIVIDUALITY vs. PERSONALITY. A person is what you were born to become: connected, RESONATE, playing well with the other children, that is an adult person.
There is a song being sung by your life. The choice is yours – keep singing the old dis-canticle or the New Song? Your new song will pour out of you spontaneously once you start to tune up and give the conductor the attention He is due.
This is the principle of MUSIC. If you will apply it to every instance and interpretation, you will do well. That is the Conductor’s promise.
