Joy, praise and celebration are experiences we would all want to share. I imagine the Nation of Israel (Hebrew Land according to the naming of the ten kingdoms by the authors of the New World Order) was very enthusiastic after their 1948 gathering together in their own land! In 1967 they had another occasion of praise, celebration, and joy when they won the 6 Day War! Isaiah said, in that day they will praise God who comforts them. They proclaim God as their salvation, strength and song! They rejoice that they were able to draw water from the wells of salvation as they declare His doings among the people and mention that the Living God is exalted. They will exhort to sing unto the Lord because He has done great things and to cry out and shout, “for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of you.”
Israel was full of praise, joy, and celebration for victories in the kingdom of this world, which worldly victories are short-lived, as we see the conflict in the present day Holy Land. (Does it make you wonder why the New World Order calls it the Hebrew Land and not the Holy Land?) The eternal source of praise, joy, and celebration comes to us from the Kingdom of God through the Cross of Christ Jesus. Those blessings of joy, praise, and celebration lives in our spirit when the Spirit of God fellowships in us! Our spirit is enlivened to the Spirit of God because of the remission of sin made available to us by what Christ did on the Cross. Israel will suffer in the Great Tribulation, but a remnant will be purified and come to Christ Jesus during that time. In that day, once again there will be praise, joy, and celebration by Israel for God’s great Salvation! After all, the 12 foundations of the New Jerusalem are Jewish, and the 12 gates of the New Jerusalem are Jewish, and the 144,000 sealed for God in the Great Tribulation are Jewish!
By faith, we are full of the Spirit of praise, joy, and celebration that we receive as our sin becomes dormant, inactive, and made to do nothing. When we accept God’s plan of redemption through His Son Jesus Christ, He lives in us through the Holy Spirit. We no longer participate in the wrestling with flesh and blood that consumes this violent and chaotic world of strife. We will not be fighting in the Battle of Armageddon because Christ Jesus has already won the war on the Cross. Satan is defeated, the anti-Christ is defeated, and all the demons are defeated. The Rapture is near and we will all be with our Lord Christ Jesus when He comes again!
Within our spirit, soul, mind, emotions, words, and actions we sing a new song of praise. We are full of praise because of the comfort that comes when we rest in the Salvation given to us through Jesus Christ. We are comforted in difficult and painful days as we experience His strength in us and He is the song of our heart. With joy we draw from the Water of life that fills our spirit with salvation. A salvation that salvages our soul with comfort and peace and assures us of our Home prepared for us in the New Jerusalem. Our praise, joy, and celebration is focused on the Kingdom of God instead of the kingdom of this world. The Salvation we experience at the Cross of Christ is what we declare among the people as we mention that His name is exalted above every name. At the name of Jesus Christ, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is lord. Even today, we exhort everyone to cry out that great is the Holy One of Israel who is in the midst of thee.
Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord!
“And in that day thou shalt say, O Lord, I will praise thee: though thou was angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comforts me. Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.”
