So, who are the Musicians and not just any musicians the preferred, preeminent, chief, leaders, conductors that shine above all the rest?

Who are the ones who lead and guide through the highs and lows, the mountainous peaks and lowest valleys as we course through this journey whether walking, speaking or singing?

Where did the music begin with instruments and voices?

Who led or leads the music?

What was the purpose of the music?

Who can ascend to the highest of highest and descend to the lowest of depths ascending and descending?

The numbers, the scores, the chords, the keys, the notes, the scales and bars, the lines and spaces and the in-between, the signatures, the pauses, the signs and more all the canon is played from the beginning until we rest.

To/For the MUSICIAN…for the CHIEF,  for the PREEMINENT who is that OUTSHINES THEM ALL?…..As it is in HEAVEN so let it be on EARTH…GOD INHABITS PRAISE!

John 1:1 And in the beginning was THE WORD and THE WORD was with GOD and THE WORD WAS GOD…….The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was LIFE; and THE LIFE was THE LIGHT of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

It is time, high time we comprehended!
