Easter is a time of remembrance. It is considered to be the highest of Holy days within Christianity because of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, When Jesus rose He rose with all power snatching back the keys that man forfeited and the enemy had stolen. One of those keys was music, more succinctly, the psalmist. Music plays a pivotal role in the spirit realm as Ezekiel 28 provides insight regarding the King of Tyre, which describes none other than the fallen angel lucifer. When looking at this scripture we see luicifer created as the first orchestra, but with the ability to dance and sing. He knows the power of words set to music, which is why so many psalmist are under attack.

Here's a Quote from Dawn, GM of a natural health store in Ohio:
