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.
