1 Chronicles 25: The Musicians Of Heaven

"David and the captains of the host separated to the service of the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with harps, with psalteries, and with cymbals"

The connection of music with some of the prophets of the LORD (Who was and is Jesus Christ - see Genesis 1: In The Beginning Was The Word and The Kingdom Of The LORD God) existed before the Levite priesthood was established (see When Were The Levites Set Apart? and Leviticus: The Prophecies Of Christianity). Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron (see also The Drawing Of Moses), was a musical prophetess (see The Song Of The LORD's Victory).

"15:20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.

15:21 And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea." (Exodus 15:20-21 KJV)

King David There is music and singing around The Throne of God (see The Church: Mission Accomplished and the Fact Finder question below).

"5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying,

Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. 5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever." (Revelation 5:7-14 KJV)

So it was then that King David established, on a formal national scale, what already existed by the Will of the LORD (see also The Prophecy Of King David's Messianic Throne).

"25:1 Moreover David and the captains of the host separated to the service of the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with harps, with psalteries, and with cymbals: and the number of the workmen according to their service was: 25:2 Of the sons of Asaph; Zaccur, and Joseph, and Nethaniah, and Asarelah, the sons of Asaph under the hands of Asaph, which prophesied according to the order of the king.

25:3 Of Jeduthun: the sons of Jeduthun; Gedaliah, and Zeri, and Jeshaiah, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the hands of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with a harp, to give thanks and to praise the LORD. 25:4 Of Heman: the sons of Heman; Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel, and Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, and Romamtiezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, and Mahazioth: 25:5 All these were the sons of Heman the king's seer in the words of God, to lift up the horn. And God gave to Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.

25:6 All these were under the hands of their father for song in the house of the LORD, with cymbals, psalteries, and harps, for the service of the house of God, according to the king's order to Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman. 25:7 So the number of them, with their brethren that were instructed in the songs of the LORD, even all that were cunning, was two hundred fourscore and eight. 25:8 And they cast lots, ward against ward, as well the small as the great, the teacher as the scholar.

25:9 Now the first lot came forth for Asaph to Joseph: the second to Gedaliah, who with his brethren and sons were twelve: 25:10 The third to Zaccur, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:11 The fourth to Izri, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:12 The fifth to Nethaniah, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:13 The sixth to Bukkiah, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:14 The seventh to Jesharelah, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:15 The eighth to Jeshaiah, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:16 The ninth to Mattaniah, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:17 The tenth to Shimei, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:18 The eleventh to Azareel, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:19 The twelfth to Hashabiah, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:20 The thirteenth to Shubael, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:21 The fourteenth to Mattithiah, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:22 The fifteenth to Jeremoth, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:23 The sixteenth to Hananiah, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:24 The seventeenth to Joshbekashah, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:25 The eighteenth to Hanani, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:26 The nineteenth to Mallothi, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:27 The twentieth to Eliathah, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:28 The one and twentieth to Hothir, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:29 The two and twentieth to Giddalti, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:30 The three and twentieth to Mahazioth, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve: 25:31 The four and twentieth to Romamtiezer, he, his sons, and his brethren, were twelve." (1 Chronicles 25:1-31 KJV)

This Day In History, July 25

213: The first historic mention of the Alemanni, when the Romans attacked them (the Roman Empire was by then in decline; see The Politics Of Rome and A History Of Jerusalem: Pompey And The Caesars). In later decades their pressure on the Roman provinces became severe. By the late fifth century they had expanded into Alsace and northern Switzerland, thus making those regions German-speaking. In 496 they were conquered by Clovis and incorporated into his Frankish dominions. The French and Spanish words for Germany are derived from their name. Eventually, they became the "Holy Roman Empire," of which the full official name was the "Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation" (see The Holy Roman Empire).

285: Diocletian appointed Maximian as co-Emperor.

306: Constantine I was proclaimed Roman emperor by his troops (see Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy).

315: The Arch of Constantine was completed near the Colosseum at Rome to commemorate Constantine's victory over Maxentius at the Milvian Bridge (see A History Of Jerusalem: Constantine and Muhammad).

The Arch of Constantine 325: The Council of Nicea closed. Regarded as the first "ecumenical council," its 300 attending Church of Roman bishops (of which at the time the bishop of Rome was still just one of the bishops; it was the Roman Emperor Constantine who created the Papacy for his local bishop at Rome; listen to our Sermon Constantine's Papacy) drafted the Nicene Creed and fixed the formula for observing the Roman Empire's "Easter Sunday," the Satanic counterfeit of the true Biblical Passover (see Why Observe The True Sabbath? and When Is The LORD's Day? to understand what truly happened during that week of Passover; see also The Two Sabbaths Of Passover Week).

864: The Edict of Pistres, by Charles the Bald, ordered defensive measures against the Viking invaders.

1139: At the battle of Ourique, Alfonso Henriques defeated the Moors and became Alfonso I of Portugal.

1261: Constantinople was recaptured by Nicaean forces under the command of Alexios Strategopoulos, thereby re-establishing the Byzantine Empire.

1564: Maximilian II, king of Hungary and Bohemia, became Holy Roman Emperor on the death of Ferdinand I.

1588: The third of 3 encounters of the English fleet against the Spanish Armada. After the severe mauling by the Royal Navy (with battle commanders such as Francis Drake, John Hawkins, Martin Frobisher, Richard Grenville and Lord Sheffield) what remained of the Pope's "invincible" armada that had been sent to invade Britain limped back home. Of the over 130 battle ships sent by the pope, 68 were on the bottom of the sea. The English lost not a single ship in battle.

1593: Henry IV of France converted from Protestantism to Roman Catholicism (not a difficult task because their antichrist doctrines are the same; see Antichristians and Is Your Religion Your Religion?).

1603: James VI of Scotland was crowned as James I of England, thereby unifying the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Scotland (the King James Version of the Holy Bible is named after him).

1666: The English fought the Dutch in the second naval battle of the Foreland.

1689: King Louis XIV of France declared war on Britain.

1712: The Protestant cantons led by Berne defeated the Catholic cantons at the Battle of Villmergen, ending the religious wars in Switzerland.

1787: British explorer George Dixon named the Queen Charlotte Islands after the wife of George III.

1797: British naval commander Horatio Nelson's right arm was shattered by grapeshot during an assault on Tenerife. The injured arm was amputated later.

1799: The Battle of Aboukir. Napoleon's last victory during his occupation of Egypt, fought with his 7,700 Army of Egypt against an Ottoman Turkish force of 18,000 which were sent to drive out the French. Ottoman / Turkish (listen to our Sermon The Ottoman Empire) losses were 2,000 killed in battle, 10,000 killed or drowned trying to escape, and 3,000 captured; French casualties totalled 900.

1814: The Battle of Lundy's Lane, the bloodiest battle of the War of 1812 (1812-1814). U.S. invasion forces encountered British infantry and Canadian militia just west of Niagara Falls, Ontario. After a furious 24-hour firefight, the invaders retreated, with both of their commanding generals (Winfield Scott and Jacob Brown) severely wounded. It was one of the bloodiest battles of the war, and one of the deadliest battles ever fought on Canadian soil. It was the last invasion of Canada, by any country, to this day.

1909: Louis Bleriot made the first crossing of the English Channel by air, flying his monoplane from Les Baraques, near Calais, to Dover.

1925: The Telegraph Agency of the Soviet Union (TASS) was established.

One of the Concorde's tires and a full fuel tank were punctured after hitting a piece of metal on the runway that had fallen off of another airliner that had just taken off. It was the first crash of one of the supersonic airliners, however investigations revealed design vulnerabilities that resulted in the Concordes being taken out of service permanently.

2010: Wikileaks published classified documents about the War in Afghanistan, one of the largest leaks in U.S. military history. None of those who committed the war crimes revealed in the documents were investigated or prosecuted, while those who reported the crimes to the public were imprisoned.
