In these Bible verses, we see the first use of trumpets. Interestingly, the trumpets are sounded, it appears, by the Lord himself. There are several Bible references that show that God is musical. We may not often think of God as a musical being, but He is, and He is the original Author of music. Let's take a look at these verses and see what lessons we can learn.
The first song recorded in the Bible is found in Exodus 15. Moses and the children of Israel had just passed through the Red Sea and then watched as the Lord destroyed the entire Egyptian army. After this epic win, the Israelites had much to be thankful for, and sang this song -- a song of victory. A lot of time could be spent in talking through this whole chapter, but I'd like to look at the first two verses.
I'd like to begin a new series here on Harmony Passion, taking a look at music references through the Bible. The way church musicians view their ministry should be informed by a Biblical framework. These thoughts will be helpful to put church music in perspective, and may be beneficial for personal or group devotionals for church musicians.
Think that you'll never match up to the truly great performers and musicians? Think again. Increasingly, scientific research is pointing to the fact that we are capable of far more than we give ourselves credit for.
I read an article this morning that really grabbed my attention. It is a business related article, but the subject matter is actually more closely related to something like music. If you have the goal of becoming an awesome musician, here are some things you will need to understand and implement. The article is called The Six Keys To Being Awesome At Everything. As you read, think not just about how it relates to music practice, but how it relates to your music practice. Enjoy!
