Praise Him, All Ye Angels!

 

Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights! Praise Him, all His angels, Praise Him all His Hosts Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all stars of light!…Psalm 148: 1-3

Isn’t this divine? I love this and it is a chorus I used to sing quite often. Sometimes, the angels have been referred to a stars. Let’s look at praise a little more, shall we. While we think of seraphim round the throne and crying, ” holy, holy, holy “, because He is and worthy to be praised, we see how praise is heralded by angels wherever they are.

They praise from the heavens, the heights, every level. The apostle Paul was caught up in the Spirit into the third heaven. The earth’s atmosphere, and beyond.  They praise from the sun or perhaps sunlight, and from the night, the stars. Every twinkling one of them, like an angelic lullaby, praising Him for the day and calming the night.

They praise Him as stars of light that guide the ships upon the sea, and walk lovers home hand in hand in the moonlight. They know that Israel is the apple of God’s eye, but they are the twinkle in His. Have you ever seen the so called Eye of God, shot from the Hubble telescope? And there is even a cross in the center of a whirlpool nebula.

Yes, praise the LORD, you armies of angels who serve Him and do His will! Psalm 103:21 New Living Translation

If Joshua’s armies sent singers and praisers ahead to bring down Jericho, surely angels are gathered in song and trumpeting over the places they are charged to go.

Let’s look at the birth of Jesus, suddenly there appeared with the angel a great multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth, Peace. Good will toward men.  Luke 2:13 The shepherds were frightened but the angel spoke to them not to fear, Jesus was born in Bethlehem.

Praise the Lord, you His angels, you mighty ones who do His bidding, who obey His word,

Praise the Lord, all His heavenly hosts, you His servants who do His will.

Praise the Lord, all His works everywhere in His dominion. Psalm 103:20-22

Praise the Lord angels, you are mighty before Him, and you hearken and obey His Word, when spoken by Him or prayed by a believer, for you are beholding His face, Matthew 18:10, you and sing and dance and twirl and whirl through both time and space and wing your way to and from, heaven and earth with wings full of His glory to shine on us.

You are the heavenly, hosts, musicians and orchestras. Some do play the harp but not all, there are many instruments of praise. Let all creation or dominion praise Him with the sounding trumpet and harp an lyre, and the clashing of cymbals. Praise Him angels, heavenly host, over all His works, He is worthy of all praise.

Whether a star upon the night as we kneel in precious prayer, or a song of praise picked up on by an angel to sing as she flies through skies of blue, or whether a choir gathering at mass behind little boys who sing Amazing Grace, or a mighty warrior with trumpet in hand, or the angel that stands in the shadow of the soloist, or even the kindly spirit that whispers a forgotten word. Praise Him, all ye angels, praise Him in the sun, and praise Him in the moon. Rebecca Jones ( Please remember to scroll back and read about angels all month. )

Please enjoy Glorious Wonder, Listen for the Chorus!
