And He Shall Reign

Then the seventh angel sounded:
And there were loud voices in heaven, saying,
“The kingdoms of this world have become
the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ,
and He shall reign forever and ever!”
~ Revelation 11:15 (NKJV)

And He Shall Reign

I searched through numerous videos of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus to select one for today's post. I was dismayed that the majestic piece has become a source for farce, for gay pride promotion, and even for a movie opportunity to drop the f-bomb in connection with Jesus.

The video below may not have the highest quality of photos and text, but it is certainly faithful to the reverence for God with which the piece was written.

This passage of Revelation inspired the beloved music which looks to the day when "the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of the Lord, and of His Christ." I pray these verses might inspire you to think of the day when the sound in Heaven may be something like this ~

  1. So beautiful, thanks for sharing.

  2. We used to sing the whole Messiah in college choir every year. It is beautiful!

  3. I am swept away thinking about that day. It is already here in my heart and it bears unimaginable JOY!

    I hear this and remember fondly when I had just met Jesus and sang this with the church choir. Back then I could actually hit the second soprano notes. : )

  5. Esther ~

    I've only seen the entire piece once. How blessed you are to be so familiar with all of it! The day is coming for us all ...

  6. Natasa ~

    Hallelujah! (Or, halle-lu Yah!) :D

    Halle means praise, but it implies boasting. I gladly make my boast in Yah!
