DAY 257 - Hallelujah!

Today’s Reading: Revelation 19

Please read Revelation 19 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method:Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to Revelation 19:





Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: "Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of he Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready." Revelation 19: 6-7

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

There are four "Hallelujah" in this chapter and when I read this chapter for a few times the only thing in my mind is Handle Messiah's Hallelujah Chorus. Since I became a member of my parish choir early in the 60' and then a professional choir conductor, I can't count how many times I sang and conducted this Chorus. But now as I read and try to listen to what Jesus wanted to say to me, it is very clearly the Hallelujah Chorus. He is the King of kings and Lord of lords, who should we afraid of? No matter what happen in our life but He reigns. Yes, indeed, let us rejoice and be glad and him him glory! Let us prepare ourselves so that we will be invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!

I have attached a modern version of Hallelujah first and then a traditional version at the end.

Hallelujah! It was such a blessing that Michelle could have dinner with us on Athan's 13th birthday tonight. How much joy we had as we enjoyed our wonderful night together!

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank you for revealing your mighty power through Handel's Hallelujah Chorus. Help me to be ready anytime so that I can be invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christians to have daily devotion - a wonderful and intimate time with Jesus.
There are three reasons for you to use this blog as your daily devotion:
1. A healthy spiritual diet - One chapter of the Bible daily. We really need at least one chapter of Bible daily so that we are well fed.
2. A good example of Spiritual Journaling - What I have committed for 1,189 days(the Bible has 1,189 chapters)to write this daily post is not for teaching purposes but this is my daily spiritual journal - I write down what I hear from Jesus and how I experience His intimate relationship with me each day. I have launched a wide-spectrum research on daily devotion and have found out that there are less than 10% of Christians that are having daily devotion. Out of that 10%, many having daily devotion are doing so because of guilt (they know that they are Christians and need to have daily devotion and feel guilty if they don’t do that), duty (they need to fulfill their duty as a Christian) or study(lots of Christians primarily use their daily devotion as a time to study the Bible). I do pray and hope that you will make up your mind to have a relational daily devotion so that you can have an intimate time with Jesus. I pray that you will write your own spiritual journal as well.
3. An online discipler – One of the reasons that so many Christians do not have daily devotion is because they do not have a disciple. A discipler can help them build up this basic element of discipleship when they first become Christians. The best way for you is to have a discipler to walk with you for a certain period of time so that daily devotion become a good habit. Or, you may have a small group of two to three people to encourage and be accountable to each other so that you won’t stop your daily devotion. I offer myself as your online disciple to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!
