And a voice came out of the throne, saying, PRAISE OUR GOD, ALL YE HIS SERVANTS, and ye that fear him, both small and great. AND I HEARD as it were the voice of A GREAT MULTITUDE, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, SAYING, ALLELUIA: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. Revelation 19: 5-9. So when the Bible says to "Praise the Lord", is that a demand from some egotistical god that thinks pretty big of himself, (as the world sees Him), or is that a directive from a Pure, Holy, and Righteous Lord God Almighty showing His Followers not just the Way they should go, but the Path to the greatest Praise, Honor, and Glory that they can give to the Lord for all that which He has done for them? Again, "Praise" is not a thing to do, Praise is the result of the Great Love a Follower has for the Lord, WHO SAVED THEM FROM AN ETERNITY IN HELL. Praise is the Highest Calling A Believer can Live before the Lord God Almighty. It is a True Love Offering that does not come naturally to sinful man, but does Gladly, Joyfully, Willingly, and Desirously roll off the tongues of those snatched out of the brink of Hell. Hell is that bad, and Praise is that Great, total opposites to each other. So, is your walk with the lord just ho-hum, thanks god, that was nice of you to save me, now where are all my blessings, or is it, OH GOD, YOU ARE SO GREAT, SO KIND AND MERCIFUL, SO AWESOME, MY PRAISE TO YOU IS SO PUNY TO THAT WHICH YOU SO GREATLY DESERVE, MY WORDS FALL SO SHORT TO THAT OF WHAT I WANT TO SAY, OH GOD, YOU..... Be Blessed.
