Is Hallelujah Really the Highest Praise?

“Is Hallelujah the Highest Praise”

Hallelujah is not the praise, its the “commandment” or “encouragement” to praise. When you say “Hallelujah”, you are saying “everybody praise God”.

If I say “tell me your name!” you don’t repeat “tell me your name!” you just do it, you say your name…

To praise God is to retell God’s glorious characteristics and character, basically telling of His name. In the Psalms when David or Moses or Asaph says “Hallelujah” they are exhorting you to speak out your remembrance of God’s goodness and characteristics and the things He did.

So when people say “Hallelujah is the Highest praise” I’m not too sure what they mean. Are they saying “the commandment to praise is the highest form of praise?” I don’t know if that makes sense. There’s nothing in the Bible that actually says that.

If somebody says “Praise God” or “Hallelujah” to me that means I need to think about God and vocalize what He has done and who He really is.

Conclusion:

“Hallelujah” is the praise leader telling you what to do, then (hopefully) leading by example. Its your job to actually do it.

It’s a big misunderstanding and it could make our praise a lot more powerful and build up our souls so much more if we understood how to really praise God without wasting words. Knowledge of the Holy is Understanding!

Ignoring Spiritual Laws Kills the Masses

If I’m an engineer designing an airplane and I ignore the laws of physics, eventually I’m going to kill a mass of people.

Or better yet if I buy an airplane company and ignore my engineers, and push a plane into the market that’s my own idea, I’m going to kill a mass of people.

People that claim to be designing, leading, or doing ministry – but they don’t know the Word of God or the Holiness of God, or the spiritual laws of the Kingdom of God – are killing masses spiritually as we speak.

A clever idea, talent, and money is much different from an anointing and vision from God. The results are different too.

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25 Behold, I have told you before.

 

Kingdom Growth is By Revelation not Organization

All beneficial growth in the Kingdom of God is established by revelation, not organization. Matthew 16:16-19 Upon THIS Rock…

The Love of GOD vs The Glory of Men

John 5
41 I do not receive glory from people.
42 But I know that you do not have the love of God within you.
43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him.
44 How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?

The love of God and the glory of man CANNOT COEXIST! Faith in God and the Glory of men CANNOT COEXIST!

The Church Anesthesiologists

What if your surgeon had the anesthesiologist sedate you and make you numb, but then never use the sharp scalpel to cut the cancer out?

You’d be happy and sleepy but still sick.

Welcome to the American Church: great music, prophetic encouragement, minimal sharp swords, superficial change.

Can You Really Be a “Witness” without the Holy Spirit??? Counterfeit Evangelism

If Jesus gives us the Holy Ghost to empower us to be witnesses i.e. “martus” i.e, “living martyrs…” (Acts 1:8).

Then how are we “witnessing” without the Holy Spirit?

What are we really doing without Holiness, and without the power of the Spirit?

Are we hypocrites (actors), making converts that are twice as much the sons of hell as we are (Matthew 23)?

Are we creating easy believers with no root, destined to fall away when trouble comes (Mark 4)?

Are we thieves and robbers, refusing to enter in through the Door of the Word (Revelation from Jesus), but trying to reach God’s people “some other way” (John 10)?

Are we ministers of Jezebel, using spiritual adultery and idolatry to create children that are destined to be killed with spiritual death by Jesus Himself (Revelations 2)?
