Normally a post about music would take place in another part of the forum. However, this is about doctrine set forth in one of the most famous and sung songs. Is "Joy to the World" a song that would embrace the Pre-teristic thinking? Is the a song sung by the modern church because it sounds so good, and feels so nice, but has no place until the Millennial reign and therefore is an example of either gross misapplication or the assemblies' lack of discernment? Is this song teaching heretical doctrine and therefore should be publicly banned from Godly assemblies? Perhaps you have another opinion that is divergent from the questions. If so, state and support your thinking. Look carefully and see if you can find anyplace that it can be applied to the church in this age. Here are the words: Joy to the World, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King; Let every heart prepare Him room, And Heaven and nature sing, And Heaven and nature sing, And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing. Joy to the World, the Savior reigns! Let men their songs employ; While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy. No more let sins and sorrows grow, Nor thorns infest the ground; He comes to make His blessings flow Far as the curse is found, Far as the curse is found, Far as, far as, the curse is found. He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove The glories of His righteousness, And wonders of His love, And wonders of His love, And wonders, wonders, of His love.
