OBSERVATION:

THE TWO BOOKS OF CHRONICLES SPEAKS TO ISRAEL’S KINGDOM WITH EMPHASIS ON OBEDIENCE TO GOD. ANCIENT JEWISH TRADITION BELIEVES EZRA WROTE THE TWO BOOKS. THE BOOKS ENCOURAGED RETURNING EXILES IN BABYLON AS THEY RETURNED TO JERUSALEM. DAVID’S THRONE AND KINGDOM MAY HAVE EXPIRED, YET DAVID’ S GOD (JEHOVAH) WAS WILL IN CONTROL. PAGAN FORCES INTENDING TO INVADE JUDAH FOUGHT AMONG THEMSELVES AND FAILED TO ENTER BATTLE. THIS TEACHING EXPRESSES THE MERIT OF PRAISE AND PROTECTION.

INTERPRETATION:

2 CHRONICLES 20:21 (NKJV) AND WHEN HE HAD CONSULTED WITH THE PEOPLE, HE APPOINTED THOSE WHO SHOULD SING TO THE LORD, AND WHO SHOULD PRAISE THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS, AS THEY WENT OUT BEFORE THE ARMY AND WERE SAYING, PRAISE THE LORD, FOR HIS MERCY ENDURES FOREVER.

POINTS TO PONDER:

(ISAIAH 43: 21 (NKJV) THIS PEOPLE I HAVE FORMED FOR MYSELF; THEY SHALL DECLARE MY PRAISE.) PRAISING GOD IS A BELIEVER’S OBLIGATION. IT MUST BE A PLEASURABLE OBLIGATION. IT MUST PRODUCE SPIRITUAL FRUIT, WHICH GOD EXPECTS OF YOU.

PSALMS 9:11 SING PRAISES TO THE LORD, WHICH DWELLS IN ZION: DECLARE HIS DEEDS AMONG THE PEOPLE.

READ PSALMS 33: 1-3 NOTICE THE INTENSITY OF THE USE OF INSTRUMENTS WHILE PRAISING HIM. GOD IS PLEASED WITH HIS PEOPLE PRAISING HIM VOCALLY AND WITH INSTRUMENTS.

APPLICATION:

ALL OF GOD’S PEOPLE WILL ULTIMATELY PRAISE HIM FOR ETERNITY! JOIN THE CHOIR, THE REHEARSAL STARTS NOW!
