Angels Don’t Sing?? / Christmas

Edited 12/27/21: I am in the process of studying this topic about whether angels sing or only speak. I will be editing my thoughts on this after more study. Job 38:7 is noteworthy. Apparently angels sang at Creation. Four living creatures and 24 elders sing in heaven in Revelation 5:8-10 (but are they angels?). God sings over future restored Israel in Zephaniah 3:17. (Does God sing over His own Christian believers now?) This topic is fascinating! I am so glad that God created human beings with the ability to sing praises to His Wonderful name!! All I know is I am called to sing and play piano and I pray God will help me in it.

Christmas Morning 12/25/2021 Lord, I guess the angels didn’t actually sing to the shepherds, as Your Word says they spoke to them. An angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them in that dark field that night, whenever it was. The angel SAID “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which shall be for all the people….” And a multitude of the heavenly host suddenly appeared and were praising God and SAYING, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.” (See Luke 2:8-12.) I’m sorry for how poorly I read and understand Your Word sometimes Lord. It astounds me how little I truly understand and remember sometimes. But I praise and thank You for the love You have given me for Your Word dear Triune God. And for all the truth I do know and understand by Your grace. Make me a continual humble, student of Your Precious Word. Though we don’t know what day You were born on Jesus, happy birthday. Help us to celebrate You every day, every hour, every moment of our lives. Help us to humble ourselves and to be willing to have our desires and plans interrupted by Your best plan for our lives. Help us to be like Mary who said to the angel giving her such incredible news of her virgin pregnancy, “Behold, the bond-slave of the Lord, be it done to me according to your word.” Thy Will be done Triune God. Thy Kingdom come. Let it begin with me Jesus. Let it begin with my small, poorly followed Prayer Group in Facebook. Please have mercy Father and shine Your grace into many more lives around us. We beg for the salvation of the lost among us and in our nation, and all across the globe. Make us useful. Oh what a privilege it would be to be used by You to help another soul understand the gospel and believe in Jesus. Though the angels did not sing (unless “saying” means something more than we can comprehend….) oh Jesus, I CHOOSE TO SING AND PLAY FOR YOU to the best of my humble ability for Your glory. I love the truths in great songs like Hark the Herald Angels Sing (which I guess should read said) and I praise and thank you God for the people You have gifted to give us such wonderful lyrics set to such wonderful music as a means and vehicle through which to worship You. It’s not the only way we worship of course, and for some it may not be a good way. Oh Lord, make every part of our lives a more worthy surrender and worship of You Triune God. At Christmas and always.
