Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Psalm 33:2
The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalm 34:18
Thus we can praise God at any time and exalt Him in righteousness and a contrite spirit: never seen in the false, humanistic musical worship, rituals!

Next Lucifer HIMSELF came equipped with pipes and tambourines and was the prostitute harpist merging false religion and commerce. The Latin word “Lucifer” was applied to Satan in the garden because of his relationship to the stones of fire and light and his musical seduction. The word “praise” which means to make a fool of yourself is the Hebrew:
Halal (1984) haw-lal’; a prim. root; to be clear (orig. of sound, but usually of color); to shine; hence to make a show, to boast; and thus to be (clamorously) foolish; to rave; causat. to celebrate; also to stultify, make, fool (-ish, -ly), glory, give [light], be (make, feign self) mad (against), give in marriage, [sing, be worthy of] praise, rage, renowned, shine.
Lucifer is derived from halal and therefore defines the then and end-time methods he will use against the Word of God.
Heylel (h1966) hay-lale’; from 1984 (in the sense of brightness); the morning-star: – Lucifer.

That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph. Amos 6:6
Today still too often “With the wine-drinking (which is the literal meaning of the Hebrew for feasting), goes also the sensual, erotic music and dancing.” Also a common theme of all paganism was that the female musicians who had the power to seduce the males with the hope of leaving a large “contribution.” and because they produced nothing good and caused lots of destruction of morals they were called hypocrites and parasites.
God desires still people who worship him in spirit and in truth

(Psa 35:13 KJV) But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
