He also commands us to celebrate certain feasts, even the one we Here we are or will be…Sunday morning; Sunday school, and or Sunday worship. Which is good. Not sure how to keep this short so to a the verse.
1Chronicles16:4 “And he appointed certain of the Levites to minister before the ark of Jehovah, and to celebrate and to thank and praise Jehovah, the God of Israel.” So let’s look at these words, praise-to glorify, exalt…
Thank- to express gratitude, thankful. So far nothing new but the last word, (or the first) celebrate- to honor or mark by ceremonies or festivities. Now this last word is also translated record, commemorate, petition, invoke and offer prayers. A lot of different words here; one word that will help us is, remember. Through out the bible God tells us to remember. Who He is, what He did, what He will do(promises). As we did last Sunday, the Lord’s supper. The words of Jesus, “do this in remembrance of Me.”
So often we forget what God has done, will do, can do and Who He is. So we need to remember and sometimes record what He has done for us personally and corporately. Our God is still working in the present and it is us who need to be reminded of that, that is why it is so important to remember what God is doing now and what He has done and what He will do. To help us to understand this verse just continue reading verses 7-37, seriously take the time this week and read 1Chron.16:4-37.
