This year I can say overall I’ve learned the value and influence music has on me and how it influences others. I’ve realized how to have a discerning spirit towards certain lyrics and artist , tapping into the deeper meaning behind the music.
Although I am goofy and funny majority of the time, I find myself impersonating rappers , “thugs” and gangsters . I have no idea why but sometimes that thug or gangster-ish music is what I desire to hear at the moment not realizing that killing “niggas” and selling drugs is a lifestyle they portray to be living and promoting.
That is not a lifestyle I live nor I will ever live and simply professing those simple lyrics brings life to a seed. Once you began censoring what goes into your ear gate you begin to truly hear what they are saying instead of just paying attention to that pumping beat , that pumping beat begins to fade and the spirit behind the music reveals itself because it’s been noticed and called out.
People say music is life. So is this why music is so influential on everyone? Music is something that is relatable. You could be walking down the street with a complete stranger and all of a sudden become influenced by a song that is playing through there earphones.
In the bible Lucifer was the angel in charge of music and after betraying god and taking 1/3 of the angels he knew how to influence the world with music . Do you understand now why you have to really pay attention to the root and origin of something?
So the question was why is music so influential on everyone well as an angel in heaven 24/7 you are praising and worshiping God so if all Lucifer knows is how to praise and worship someone before becoming evil what skill is he taking with him ? The ability to please people and now turning positive praise into self-righteousness .
Hints most female R&B artist are considered sex symbols. So the influence has nothing to do with the beat or any other added factors to the song it simply has to do with the spirit behind the music. As simple as your either worshiping God or the devil.
Along this road of discoveries and more so realizations I have expected the fact that I don’t just have the ability to hold a tune and write an awesome song but I actually have a voice worth being heard. I will work on developing that in the near future but until then I will continue to hear the voice of God through music.
