Kingdom Singing

Α-Ω

"I will sing with the spirit

and I will also sing with the understanding,"

1 Corinthians 14'15.

Α-Ω

"Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice," Philippians 4'4. Saved, redeemed, immersed, filled and much more.

For those who believe Jesus there is indeed much to rejoice, thank and sing for.

Believers sing! Especially so when they are gathered together. But who would sing in prison?

Well:

"... at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening ...".

These two were travelling preachers who found themselves imprisoned - unjustly. In spite of that they prayed and sang to God.

Their fervent faith sounded out in the dark, dank, no doubt dirty, probably pest-infested, prison in prayers and songs. Everyone heard them. And so did God.

He shook the earth so much that the prison doors came adrift. The behaviour of the two men was testimony indeed. It shook the Keeper of the prison and his family who believed and were saved.

Joyous thanksgiving arises from the hearts of those who repent and receive the Lord and become children of God.

Being born-again from above, justified, reconciled, adopted by God, given sonship and:

"... because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts crying out, 'Abba, Father!'," Galatians 4'6.

"... you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, 'Abba, Father'," Romans 8'15.

In harmony with the Holy Spirit Believers speak out and sing their praises and thansksgivings to the Father.

A very significant aspect of Kingdom singing is that God has ordained it to be a way of exhorting, comforting or building up other Believers as well as ourselves.

Singing the word of Christ in thanksgiving, praise, worship or prayer has power.
