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!

If We Only Knew the Power of our Words

Brethren,

If we really knew the power in the faith- filled word- filled, spirit-filled tongue of a believer that walks in integrity, we would realize that we are the absolute most powerful thing on this planet, the very conduit of God on earth… We would realize how much authority we have in this earth and how much the entire spiritual realm trembles and watches for our words.

Saints We ARE the Authority! God gives us this Honor as We Abide in Jesus Christ and Live in Praises to His Name.

Psalms 149
5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;
7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord.
