PRAISE ALIGNS US WITH HEAVEN’S ATMOSPHERE

 

praise aligns us with heavens atmosphere

Revelation 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

 

When we think of atmosphere we think of the “vapor sphere” or layer of gases surrounding the planet Earth, mostly made up of nitrogen, oxygen, and argon. They protect life on Earth by absorbing radiation warming and temperature extremes. There are other atmospheres beside the atmosphere surrounding the Earth. An atmosphere can be the pervading tone, tenor, or mood of a place. Cities can have atmospheres Acts 8:8, homes can have atmospheres (Luke 10:6; Mark 5:34-43), churches or gathering places can have atmospheres (2 Chronicles 5:11-14; Acts 4:31).

 

When many people enter into Heaven they may be surprised to find out that Heaven is a praise place. Heaven’s atmosphere is filled with the sound of praise. A scene around the throne of God in Heaven in Revelation 5:9-14 numbers 100 trillion angelic beings (the #1 followed by fourteen 0’s) praising with a loud voice. Another scene depicted in Revelation 19:1-7 describes the redeemed praising in a volume described as the, “…the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thundering, saying, Allelulia; for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth…” This is the atmosphere of Heaven.

 

Do you know that when the Holy Ghost came like a rushing mighty on the Day of Pentecost that before it filled them in Acts 2:4 it filled the house where they were sitting in.  Acts 2:1-2 says, “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. There are spiritual atmospheres too. Our praise is but an echo of what is going on in Heaven and can be like a thermostat to set the atmosphere of wherever we are. Since atmosphere is mostly air we have some air or breath we can add to it too, “Let everything that hath breath, praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord Psalm 150:6.”
