Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights! Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts! Praise Him; sun and moon; Praise Him, you heavens of heavens, And you waters above the heavens! Psalm 148 NKJV
The psalmist calls on the heavens and the earth to praise the Lord.
The God of the bible rules over heaven and earth. That does not mean there is no opposition to His authority.
There are human beings who oppose God’s authority. Some of that opposition is due to our sinful nature. The fallen nature of mankind resulted from the spiritual battle taking place in the spiritual realm between spiritual beings.
The devil led one third of the angels in rebellion against God. That battle still rages.
There will come a day when perfect peace will reign throughout the heavens!
God will be praised from the heights of creation. All the angels will praise Jesus. All the heavenly hosts will bow down to Jesus. There will be no place in all of creation where our God does not receive the praise, honor and glory He is worthy to receive!
Praise the Lord from the earth, You great sea creatures and all the depths; Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word; Mountains and all hills; Fruitful trees and all cedars; Beasts and all cattle; Creeping things and flying fowl; Kings of the earth; Both young men and maidens; Old men and children. Vs 7-12
When the battle in the heavens goes quiet all opposition to our God will end on earth. All living things and creation itself will praise God! Our spirits will be caught up in the pristine glory ringing from one corner of creation to the other! We will know true intimacy with Jesus in a way we cannot imagine today!
And He has exalted the horn of His people, The praise of all His saints-Of the children of Israel, A people near to Him. Praise the Lord! Vs 14
In the millennial reign of Christ His people will rule and reign with Jesus!
We will not be influenced by the rebellious and fallen. Jesus will reign in our hearts, minds, perfected bodies and souls. It will be an existence no man or women can describe or comprehend today. And it will never end!
Praise Jesus today for what you have today! You have His love and blessing! Praise Him for the future He promised to people who love Him today. Do it morning noon and night every day!
