Study: Karar, Dance before the Lord

Did you have a great week? Going to church this Sunday, will you express one of the new Hebrew words learned on this blog? Especially one you have never done before? I would love to hear about it. Please let me know. If this is your first time with us, not to sorry. I normally do a review, if you can not wait click here.

Praise Reports are good! They encourage others in their walk of faith, so let me hear from you, or write in the comment area OK

Let’s praise the Lord right now:

Rejoice in the power of Jesus’ Name

Oh, Glory! H a l l e l u j a h !

You never Change (Hebrews 13:8). Amen!

Now you can continue…you do not need me to help with your praise. Do need some help? You have 5 seconds to get enthusiastic about praising your Lord and Savior. Get your praise on, 1…2…3…4…5…

Hala, H a l l e l u j a h !  Tehillah, sing unto the Lord!

Towdah, even if you don’t feel like it. It’s not in your feeling. It’s not called a sacrifice for nothing.  Taqua’, get up and move, dance, if you feel lead too!

There are endless opportunities for praise. Take advance of every one- lift of hands, sing, clap your hands, leap of joy, shout, etc.


What about Dancing with All Your Might?

There are many expressions you can do to show God your love for Him.

For example, do you remember King David? He is known for dancing with all his might before the Lord. Let read Samuel 6:12-16:

“And it was told King David, saying, The LORD hath blessed the house of Obededom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom into the city of David with gladness.

And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings.

And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.

So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.

And as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, Michal Saul’s daughter looked through a window, and saw King David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart.”

When the Spirit of Lord by Fred Hammond

Everyone naturally loves to dance, sing, and make noise. Why can’t this be done in church? OOH! What are people going to think of me, if I dance in church service? Many people are hindered because of pride. They cannot give a sacrifice of praise unto the Lord, and are acting just like Michal.

King David’s love for God far out-weighed pleasing men, and caused him to separate himself from pride, and dance like a crazy man.

In order to overcome this negative thinking, we must follow the example set by King David. King David praised God by “dancing with all his might”. You too can dance before the Lord! Trust me, I know. When you let go, and let God move in your soul, your body, and your spirit – your expression will come forth! You will feel free like never before. Free to sing! Free to dance! Free to be you!

There is liberty in Christ Jesus, and we will read it right now. I believe it is very important. Let’s read in the Message Bible, 2 Corinthians 3:17-18:

” And when God is personally present, a living Spirit, that old, constricting legislation is recognized as obsolete. We’re free of it! All of us! Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of his face. And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.”

If you like the King James Version here it is for you:

“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

You are free to dance, free to run, and free to rejoice! Happy to be you, and walk in God’s purpose will for your life.

Karar, before the Lord! Praise Him!

Dance is a great way to get you involved in worship service. Instead of just sitting and squirming at church, dance just likes you seen in the congregation. And yes, I’m saying at appropriate times – do things in decencies and in order. Amen! You’re Free today! Walk in Your Freedom.

There is a Hebrew word for dance, and it’s called Karar.

Karar means “to dance and whirl about”. This word is found in 2 Samuel 6:14,16 as shown above about King David. In your studies, read the following scriptures: Judges 21:21, 23; Ps. 30:11; 149:3; 150:4; Jeremiah. 31:4,13.

Before I leave this blog I must address this, some Christians are still opposed to using dance as a ministry, because of what the secular world as done with dance. These people do not understand that dance can be a positive tool for praising God. With a strong Christian dance ministry, children of all ages can learn to dance in a wholesome and spiritual setting.

It is very important to continue using dance as a form of worship in order to carry on the tradition that has been documented in the Bible and to continue strengthening spirituality in churches today, or Not! It’s all up to you.

Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
