According to me music is there since the world began. In the Bible you see how Cain’s descendants were experts in music. In fact all of Cain’s descendants were experts in the view of the world. But the interesting fact is that they all perished with their skills because they turned away from the God who made them. You see the city Cain built for himself and all his descendants perishing in Genesis. But we also learn of David whose harp playing could even charm away evil spirits. A gift from God. I don’t know if musical notes existed even then but I like to believe that David played when he was filled with the spirit of God. Everything divine and from God is for eternity but everything you see around you is temporary. In fact nothing in 3D can exist forever. The psalms of David still bends your knees before God and will exist forever because they are from God. As for the music made by Cain’s descendants, we don’t even know what that sounded like. All of Cain’s descendants perished in the Great flood. What caused this flood? The children of God mingled with those of the world leading to great wickedness as said in the Bible. This does not mean that we should not mingle with others. It means that we should not let anything come into our lives that may take us away from God. Romans 12 tells us that we should not be conformed to this world. When we make music to God it should not be for our glory or satisfaction but rather purely for the glory of God. People make music to be known and to be glorified but the Bible tells us to boast in the Lord. When we humble ourselves in this area, God uses our talent to make music that changes lives. We all have a long way to go. Let us let God use us to make music that will last forever.
