What about sacred songs performed in/by/with the flesh?

What about hymns and psalms originally pre-composed in/by/with the Spirit but then performed in/by/with the flesh? See also Prophetic-Rhema-BT7: Can God use Christian music that isn’t prophetic? There’s 1000s of songs originally written by absolutely anointed, prophetic musicians, which were originally such a blessing to the Church. But now they are being performed in/by/with the natural flesh’s “might and power,” performed by both saved and unsaved musicians! Of course this is natural for the unsaved musician and they know of no other way: “The natural person absolutely in fact does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and/coupled he is absolutely in fact not able to understand them because they are Spirit-kind-of discerned” – see New Covenant Ways – BT16. We all were like them once – “we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just like the rest of mankind” (a). So, there is absolutely no way these secular musicians can play these anointed, prophetic songs in an anointed, prophetic way – unless God supernaturally intervenes like the donkey rebuking the false prophet Balaam (b). <Notes> a) Ephesians 2:3, b) Numbers 22:28.
The entire NT also warns Christians of “walking down-from/according-to the flesh” (a), which means Christian musicians can actually end up playing anointed, prophetic songs in/by/with the flesh, and the solution is simply to stop doing this and instead “walk by the Spirit” (b). Christians are called to make vital decisions that affect their lives and ministries! I’ve devoted a whole page to this “might and power” type of ministry called “Not by might nor power” (c), which is actually the foundational problem of The Great Wall quenching the Holy Spirit, foundational because it was “borrowed” from the old covenant of works that was all done in/by/with the flesh! <Notes> a) 2 Corinthians 10:2; Romans 8:5, 12-13, b) Galatians 5:16, c) Zechariah 4:6.
