Rev 19:6 Then I heard something like the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.
In Rev 19:1-6 the word Hallelujah (or Alleluia) appears four times in one of the most exciting scenes of worship in the Holy Bible. We hear this word in music and we hear it in shouts of joy during worship, but what does this wondrous word mean? Well I’m about to tell you.
Hallelujah means, “Praise the Lord”, or more specifically, “Praise Jehovah.” So what does it mean to praise the Lord? And what instructions does the Holy Bible give us about praise?
Psa 150:6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
Psa 150 is a short chapter composed of six verses dedicated to praising the Lord. It speaks of many avenues of praise to include various forms of instruments, dance, for His greatness, and in the excellence of His power. It concludes with a profound call to all creation to call out praises to the Lord.
So my brothers and sisters in Christ, I would encourage you to speak praises on to the Lord. Sing songs of joy to Him. It doesn’t matter if you can’t carry a tune. When God hears you, you will sound perfect in His presence. Even if it’s just at home when you’re alone, speak praises or sing a song to Him. I guarantee He appreciates all of it and will return the joy back to you multiplied. God bless.
