Return to a way of singing that pleases God and unleashes his power

Tuesday August 16, 2022

Theme : “ Return to a way of singing that pleases God and unleashes his power Text : 2 Chronicles 5:11-14

11. When the priests came out of the holy place, - for all the priests present had sanctified themselves without observing the order of the classes, 12. and all the Levites who were singers, Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun, their sons and their brothers, clothed in byssus, stood on the east side of the altar with cymbals, lutes and harps, and had with them a hundred and twenty priests blowing trumpets, 13. and when those who sounded trumpets and those who sang, joining together in praise and praise to the LORD, sounded the trumpets, the cymbals, and the other instruments, and praised the LORD with these words: For he is good, for his mercy endures has always! at that moment the house, the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud. 14. The priests could not remain there to do service, because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God.

Let's remember:

Before the entrance preceding the service of God, the singers and instrumentalists must sanctify themselves. It is a non-negotiable prerequisite regardless of the artistic talent of each other. The singing service is prepared beforehand during the purification of sins. But as the purification should not be of short duration; it is then necessary to keep oneself pure at all times in order to be continually pleasing to God. The life of a cantor of the Lord must reflect modesty, decency, self-control… The cantor must live a life of fear of the Lord. It is thus that by opening his heart and his mouth to celebrate the Eternal, God invites himself without waiting; He accepts praise. And if God's answer is not sound, the Eternal can choose to answer with his glory symbolized here by the cloud spread in the house of God. When God agrees with the singers/musicians, he creates a replica of the celestial atmosphere in the place concerned; it is indescribable with human intelligence. May each cantor always be prepared before the celebration of God. Thus, our services and our lives will be filled with the cloud of God. Excellent Tuesday. Amen Alain Louz.-
