Praise In The Congregation Audio

Praise In The Congregation and there is more to praise than singing. To most Christians praise is only singing. Most Christians never praise God. The Hebrew word for praise is halal from which we get our English word Hallelujah meaning make a show and to rave. Psalm 149 speaks of 7 types of praise: 1) Personal, 2) Singing, 3) United, 4) Rejoicing, 5) Joyful, 6) Dance, and 7) Instrumental.

When I come to church I know I’m going to praise God. It’s not according to how things are going in my life. Even though I’m praising God I’m mostly in my place in front of my chair praising God alone. This is not what this aspect of praise means. This is a corporate praise where we praise God together by not only singing together but dancing together and rejoicing together. We need to learn to praise God together.

Psalms 140:1-9

1 Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
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.

Exodus 15:20-21

20 Miriam the prophetess, Aaron’s sister, took the timbrel in her hand, and all the women went out after
her with timbrels and with dancing.
21 Miriam answered them, ” Sing to the LORD, for He is highly exalted; The horse and his rider He has
hurled into the sea.”

2 Chronicles 20:21-22

21 When he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who sang to the LORD and those who praised {Him} in holy attire, as they went out before the army and said, ” Give thanks to the LORD, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.”
22 When they began singing and praising, the LORD set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; so they were routed.
