Sabbath Day (Gen.2: 1 -3 & Ex.20: 8 – 11) ——–By r. a. ———–Saturday, July 17, 2021
In Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” (Colossians 3: 16)
It has been said by others, that singing and praising the Creator-God and his son can be spontaneous, unplanned and impulsive. That’s exactly what happened to me a few days ago when I came across the following music video.
SOME BACKGROUND TO THE SONG AND VID
Perhaps some of you heard and sang this once popular song, which was created by George Harrison, who was one of the Beatles. The lyrics are few, but the music grabs and inspires you to sing along. At least that is what happened to me!
Billy Preston is the lead singer and he is supported by Eric Clapton, George Harrison’s son, Paul McCartney, Ringo and three beautiful “hallelujah” ladies.
The concert was in honor of George Harrison who passed away at the age of 58 on Nov.29, 2001. He had cancer. Billy died in June 06, 2006 at the age of 59, There are over 24 million views of this vid!
Here’s just three of many, many bible verses that encourage one to sing to the “LORD”.
1 –“Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth”. (Isa.12: 5)
2-“Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord”; (Ephes 5: 19)
3 –“And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.” (Acts 16:25)
All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Yahshua’s name.
Peace, blessings and protection to all who seek and love the truth–God’s Word (Jn.17: 17 & Psalm 119: 142)
