Praise the Lord, even in bad circumstances 3-10-24 video SAY THANK YOU

The praise means to shine, to boast in the Lord, the glorify his name. Two Hebrew words, gives us an understanding of how to praise the Lord. One is HAILER, which means praise, and the name Yahweh, which is Gods personal name in Hebrew. The other word that means praise is TEHILAH it is a praise song that is spontaneous that comes from the heart. It is unprepared it brings forth light, the sound of celebration, shout, and holy noise. Praise is spontaneous. It comes from the heart its not planned. It comes from a heart filled with gratitude. Even on the string instruments, they played and shifted the air. The book of Psalms is the book of praise to God. It shows what praise looks like. 

Ex 15:1 Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to God, giving voice together, I'm singing my heart out to God what a victory! He pitched horse and rider into the sea.

2 God is my strength, God is my song, and, yes! God is my salvation. This is the kind of God I have and I'm telling the world! This is the God of my father   I'm spreading the news far and wide!

3 God is a fighter, pure God, through and through.

4 Pharaoh's chariots and army he dumped in the sea, The elite of his officers he drowned in the Red Sea.

5 Wild ocean waters poured over them; they sank like a rock in the deep blue sea.

6 Your strong right hand, God, shimmers with power; your strong right hand shatters the enemy.

7 In your mighty majesty you smash your upstart enemies, You let loose your hot anger and burn them to a crisp.

8 At a blast from your nostrils the waters piled up; Tumbling streams dammed up, wild oceans curdled into a swamp.

9 The enemy spoke, "I'll pursue, I'll hunt them down, I'll divide up the plunder, I'll glut myself on them; I'll pull out my sword, my fist will send them reeling."

10 You blew with all your might and the sea covered them. They sank like a lead weight in the majestic waters.

11 Who compares with you among gods, O God? Who compares with you in power, in holy majesty, In awesome praises, wonder-working God?

12 You stretched out your right hand and the Earth swallowed them up.

13 But the people you redeemed, you led in merciful love; You guided them under your protection to your holy pasture.  MSG

Psalms 103:1 With my whole heart, with my whole life, and with my innermost being, I bow in wonder and love before you, the holy God!

2Yahweh, you are my soul's celebration. How could I ever forget the miracles of kindness you've done for me?  TPT

Psalms 103:20 So bless the Lord, all his messengers of power, for you are his mighty heroes who listen intently to the voice of his word to do it.

21Bless and praise the Lord, you mighty warriors, ministers who serve him well and fulfill his desires.

22I will bless and praise the Lord with my whole heart! Let all his works throughout the earth, wherever his dominion stretcheslet everything bless the Lord! TPT

Psalms 150:1 Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Praise God in his holy sanctuary! Praise him in his stronghold in the sky!

2Praise him for his mighty miracles! Praise him for his magnificent greatness!

3Praise him with trumpets blasting! Praise him with piano and guitar! 

4 Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Praise God in his holy sanctuary! Praise him in his stronghold in the sky!

5 Praise him with drums and dancing! Praise him with loud clashing of cymbals! Praise him upon the high-sounding cymbals!

6Let everyone everywhere join in the crescendo of ecstatic praise to Yahweh! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!  TPT

Ps 150: 6 Let everything that has breath and every breath of life praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)  AMP

Psalms 115:16 The heavens belong to our God; they are his alone, but he has given us the earth and put us in charge. 

17-18 Dead people cannot praise the Lord, but we can! Those who sink to the silence of the grave can no longer give glory to God, but we can! So let's praise the Lord and let it go on forever. Hallelujah, and praise the Lord!  TPT

2 Sam 6:5 David and the whole company of Israel were in the parade, singing at the top of their lungs and playing mandolins, harps, tambourines, castanets, and cymbals. MSG

Rev 5:8 The moment he took the scroll, the Four Animals and Twenty-four Elders fell down and worshiped the Lamb. Each had a harp and each had a bowl, a gold bowl filled with incense, the prayers of God's holy people.

9 And they sang a new song: Worthy! Take the scroll, open its seals. Slain! Paying in blood, you bought men and women, Bought them back from all over the earth, Bought them back for God.

10 Then you made them a Kingdom, Priests for our God, Priest-kings to rule over the earth.

11 I looked again. I heard a company of Angels around the Throne, the Animals, and the Elders ten thousand times ten thousand their number, thousand after thousand after thousand

12 in full song: The slain Lamb is worthy! Take the power, the wealth, the wisdom, the strength! Take the honor, the glory, the blessing!

13 Then I heard every creature in Heaven and earth, in underworld and sea, join in, all voices in all places, singing: To the One on the Throne! To the Lamb! The blessing, the honor, the glory, the strength, For age after age after age. MSG


REV 5:8 The moment he took the scroll, the four Living Beings and the twenty four elders bowed down in worship in their priestly offices before the little Lamb. Each one had a stringed instrument and a typical temple vessel, a broad shallow saucer of pure gold, filled with incense - in the context of this imagery their praise represented the prayers and worship of the masses of saints - and every single one realized how sanctified they were because of the Lamb.

9 And they sang a new song saying, We proclaim your excellent worth! You are the only one in the universe entitled to open the scroll and break its seals, since you were slaughtered in sacrifice and in your blood redeemed mankinds authentic identity in God. You rescued them from everything that could possibly define society before and brought them out of the confines of their dwarfed mindsets. This includes the entire spectrum of people-groupings: our tribal identities, our language-specific dialect preferences, our political and religious associations, as well as every form of racial identity!

10 And you have made them unto God a realm of royalty to reign upon the earth as priests!

11 Then I saw wave upon wave of innumerable celestial messengers engulfing the throne and the elders and the Living Beings and I heard singing! It was a mass choir of multiple millions!

12 In their full capacity they exploded in song, proclaiming in unison, The Lambs worth is now fully realized! Having been slain in sacrifice, the power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and blessing belong to him!

13 At that point the entire universe burst out in praise! I heard every created being in the heavenly realm and upon the earth and under the earth and upon the ocean and everything within all these spheres, declaring to the One seated upon the throne and to the Lamb: The most articulate language, the admiration, the supreme magnificence, the might until the ages of the ages!

14 To which the four Living Beings added their endorsement and the elders prostrated themselves before the throne in silent worship!  MIRROR

REV 14:2 And I heard a voice emerge from the heavens. It was like the sound of a thunderous torrent of cascading waterfalls. Then arose a choir of voices accompanied by stringed instruments which sounded like harps.

3 There was a strange yet familiar newness to their song; almost as if it was reflected in the face of the throne and echoed in the faces of the living creatures and the elders - a song which could not be taught or learned. It is the song of the redeemed - represented here in the 144,000(s) who were bought from the claim and clutches of the earth.  MIRROR

PS 147:1 Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! How beautiful it is when we sing our praises to the beautiful God, for praise makes you lovely before him and brings him great delight!

2Yahweh builds up Jerusalem; he gathers up the outcasts and brings them home.

3He heals the wounds of every shattered heart.

4He sets his stars in place, calling them all by their names.

5How great is our God! There's absolutely nothing his power cannot accomplish, and he has infinite understanding of everything.

6Yahweh supports and strengthens the humble, but the ungodly will be brought down to the dust.

7Sing out with songs of thanksgiving to the Lord! Let's sing our praises with melodies overflowing! TPT

REV 19:1 With this I heard a great multitude singing as with one voice in the heavens, saying Hallelujah! Salvation, glory and power belongs to our God!

Rev 19:6 And I seemed to hear the voices of a great multitude and the sound of many waters and of loud peals of thunder, which said, "Hallelujah! Because the Lord our God, the Ruler of all, has become King. Weymouth

Rom 15:9 As a result, the non-Jewish outsiders have been able to experience mercy and to show appreciation to God. Just think of all the Scriptures that will come true in what we do! For instance: Then I'll join outsiders in a hymn-sing; I'll sing to your name!

10 And this one: Outsiders and insiders, rejoice together!

11 And again: People of all nations, celebrate God! All colors and races, give hearty praise!   MSG

Ps 65:5  By fearful and glorious things [that terrify the wicked but make the godly sing praises] do You answer us in righteousness (rightness and justice), O God of our salvation, You Who are the confidence and hope of all the ends of the earth and of those far off on the seas;  AMP

Ps 98:4 Shout your praises to God, everybody! Let loose and sing! Strike up the band!

5 Round up an orchestra to play for God, Add on a hundred-voice choir.

6 Feature trumpets and big trombones, Fill the air with praises to King God.

7 Let the sea and its fish give a round of applause, With everything living on earth joining in.

8 Let ocean breakers call out, "Encore!" And mountains harmonize the finale  

9 A tribute to God when he comes, When he comes to set the earth right. He'll straighten out the whole world, He'll put the world right, and everyone in it. MSG

LUKE 19:38 They shouted over and over, Highest praises to God for the one who comes as King in the name of the Lord! Heavens peace and glory from the highest realm now comes to us !

39 Some Jewish religious leaders who stood off from the procession said to Jesus, Teacher, order your followers at once to stop saying these things!

40 Jesus responded, Listen to me. If my followers were silenced, the very stones would break forth with praises!  TPT
