Be thankful that music has improved over the ages.
Researchers have identified what they say are the oldest-known musical instruments in the world. The flutes, made from bird bone and mammoth ivory, come from a cave in southern Germany.
The first mention of music and musical instruments in the Bible is Genesis 31:27 (NIV); “… with joy and singing to the music of timbrels and harps?”
God gave us the gift of music to enjoy and to worship Him with.
One of the last Bible verses about music is Revelation 14:2 (NIV); And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps.
I Heaven we will continue to enjoy the gift of music, worshiping Him.
