Praise In Judgement
Psalm 98:1 Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.
With all the events that are precursors to impending judgement by the Lord, many wring their hands, or worse putting their hands over their mouths with self-inflicted silence. When God’s judgement does begin to fall and it will come, first to the Church and then the nation, silence is not an option.
The Psalmist throughout this chapter was in such a place and gave resounding declaration to sing, shout, break forth into song and praise to Almighty God. He even summons creation to join in the resounding voices of praise.
Don’t succumb to political correctness of silence, “Sing to the Lord a new song”.
