A Thousand Tongues?

O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing…

Revelation 5:11,12  Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice; “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!

Written by Charles Wesley in 1739, this is another of my favorite hymns.  What a blessing we can sing the hymns the Spirit inspired so long ago.  Truly, none of us can sing enough praise and thanksgiving to our Lord and Savior; at least not THIS side of Heaven!

1.O for a thousand tongues to sing

My great Redeemer’s praise,

The glories of my God and King,

The triumphs of His grace!

joyous

2. Jesus the name that charms our fears,

That bids our sorrows cease;

‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears,

‘Tis life, and health, and peace.

angelic

3. He breaks the power of canceled sin,

He sets the prisoner free;

His blood can make the foulest clean;

His blood availed for me.

4. Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,

Your loosened tongues employ;

Ye blind, behold your Savior come,

And leap, ye lame for joy.

halleluia

5. My gracious Master and my God,

Assist me to proclaim,

To spread through all the earth abroad

The honors of Thy name.

Lesson 8 in my Psalm 91 study:

Psalm 91:6b You will not be afraid of the destruction that lays waste at noon.

The fourth category of evil is destruction, “the evils over which man has no control”, commonly called ‘Acts of God’.  “these natural disaster are not coming from God.” says Peggy Ruth Joyce.  Note Mark 4:39 where Jesus rebukes the storm…Jesus would never have rebuked something sent from Father God!

It was God’s plan to provide protection to us before we were ever born.  Every extreme evil known to man will fall into one of the four categories named in verses 5 -6.  God has offered us deliverance in Christ Jesus.  Through Him, we can dwell in the secret place, activating God’s protection by following the instructions in the first two verses.  In light of the mighty storms that have come lately, I know we will hear many testimonies of God’s saving grace if we listen closely!  Let me know if you’ve heard any as well as if YOU yourself have anything to share about the Father’s saving power.

Call on the Lord

  1. Thank you Grannie Heidi for a Wonderful Heart warming Message, it’s so good that you agree too with God’s Truth that He does not cause us to suffer, yes all Good things come from Him not bad and His plans for us are Good too. When we come close to Him in Righteousness Satan flees, good and evil cannot be in Unity.

    Very True too that God knows us from Eternity, He knows all things and He knew we would accept His Free Gift of Salvation by Faith in Jesus our Redeemer and so He Chose us to be conformed into the image of Jesus and we will Walk as He did on Earth; Spotless and Holy.

    1John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made Perfect that we may have boldness in the day of judgment because as He is so are we in this World. There is no fear in Love but Perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him because He first Loved us.

    Galatians 2: 20 I am Crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live yet not I but Christ liveth in me and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the Faith of The Son of God who Loved me and gave Himself for me.(KJV)

  2. Thanks Sister Annie for taking the time to respond so well to my posts! I tend to leave the song words/Scriptures sparsely annotated so people can dig deeper on their own. I’m contemplating where the Spirit will take me in my next post; it’s been an amazing weekend!
