Hallelujah is “Praise the LORD”

“Praise the LORD, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples. For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD” (Psalm 117:1-2).

Praise the LORD is one word in Hebrew. You already know the Hebrew word without even knowing you know it. The word is “Hallelujah!”

Hallelujah literally means “Praise the LORD!”

When we praise and sing worship songs it’s not to get us in the mood to worship God or to hear God’s word. Oh, no. It is so much more. When we praise and sing to God it is a declaration of war against sin and satan. Satan hates when God’s people worship him. You know why? It’s impossible to sin when you’re praising God.

I mean it. It’s impossible. You cannot praise God while sinning!

Singing songs of praise to God is a declaration of war. It is spiritual warfare at its best because that’s when God’s people are at their best.

Praise the LORD!
