The Pure Joy of listening to a CHOIR.
On stage the Choir began to come in singing an Anthem that took me before the very throne of God. The voices were accompanied only by a piano. A sound filled the air so precious and beautiful and sweet that the drums, the guitars and the keyboard left on stage for the 2nd Contemporary Service, just sat there in Awe and Silence.
Never could those instruments even begin to compare to the angelic sound of voices from the Choir; a sound near and dear to the heart of GOD.
I am part of the Early Morning Traditional Service at this Church. The early morning gathering of the Ancient of Days. Those of us with white hair and broken bodies. Years ago the only service we had was a blended service. The seats were filled with children, grandchildren, teenagers, young adults and parents and grandparents. All together worshiping our ABBA, our DADDY.
Today the churches have 3 services. Traditional, Contemporary and one for Young Adults. I know longer understand the reasoning for separate services, because it separates not only the families that worship but also the unity of the family of God.
I will be 73 in 11 days. Yet I am more excited about my future than my past. I look forward to the Lord wiping away all my tears and then serving HIM for Eternity as I explore the UNIVERSE HE created. And I especially look forward to the worship services as I lift up my voice with those of the HOLY ANGELS.
Today, the songs of HOLY Angels can be heard echoing in the wind that flows throughout the Earth and the Heavens. Their Song lingers, slowly building momentum for the Coronation day yet to come in the near future. The Day when the KING of KINGS and the LORD of LORDS takes HIS rightful place on the throne of Heaven and Earth.
The Angels with us wait for this day. It will be a day of Jubilation, of Praise, and Worship, of Singing and Pure JOY. It will be THE DAY when all the voices of Heaven and Nature sing a New SONG to the King of Men, the King of ALL Creation, the King of Angels, and the KING of ETERNITY.
You and I love music, we love to watch musicals, and we all love to sing. This ability to sing is a gift from God to you and I. It is our way of expressing JOY. Here on Earth we communicate with words. But I’ll bet your life, that in Heaven we will communicate with Nature and the Angels and each other and with GOD… in Song.
Israel’s Joy and Restoration
Zephaniah 3: 14-17
Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel!
Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem!
The LORD has taken away the judgments against you; he has cleared away your enemies.
The King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst; you shall never again fear evil. On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: “Fear not, O Zion; let not your hands grow weak.
The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
Then truly…truly… we will… “Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the Earth! “
I continue to seek out a church that is filled with LIVING STONES that form HIS TEMPLE. Living Stones that worship the Living GOD in Spirit and in TRUTH; within a Sanctuary…NOT an apostate auditorium !
The Sanctuary where Sound Doctrine lives and Biblical Discernment is taught and the True Life Giving GOSPEL is preached.
Churches where JESUS still shows up on Sundays.
