The Dead Do Not Praise!


Glory to God!

Did I awaken you? I hope so.

Can you tell me who should praise the Lord? But first watch this praise song called “Rejoice and Be Glad” by Nancy Krebs, and join in the praise of heaven!

Holy, Holy, Holy!!!

Rejoice in Heart, Rejoice in Mind, Rejoice in Body, and Rejoice in Spirit!

Who Should Praise the Lord?

Let’s read a few verses of scripture, and let find out the answer. The first scripture is Psalm 115:17-18:

“The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence. But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.”

Let’s read my favorite translation from the Message Bible:

“Dead people can’t praise GOD—not a word to be heard from those buried in the ground. But we bless GOD, oh yes—we bless him now, we bless him always! Hallelujah!”

Now let’s read Isaiah 38:18, which states,

“For the grave cannot praise thee; death cannot celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.”

The Message Bible says,

“The dead don’t thank you, and choirs don’t sing praises from the morgue.Those buried six feet under don’t witness to your faithful ways.It’s the living—live men, live women—who thank you, just as I’m doing right now.”
The Bible tells us that every area of creation and every kind of creature to praise the Lord. The Bible also exhorts the heavens, the earth, the sea, the forests, the rocks – there is nothing that should not praise the Lord.

It speaks about all kinds of creatures: flying creatures, creatures in the sea, crawling creatures, cattle, and wild beasts. It speaks about all the states of the human race: kings, princes, young men, old men, maidens, children – all are exhorted to praise the Lord according to Psalm 148. These verses show that praising the Creator is our purpose in this life. In fact, there is only just one category of people that do not praise the Lord. You know who that is? The dead. Only the dead do not praise the Lord.

Come on Saints, if you do not praise the Lord, you know what your problem is? You are one of the dead. Not necessarily physically dead, but spiritually dead. And they also explain how living people in dead traditions tend not to praise God any more than literal corpses do. Do you want to be followers of dead traditions of men as well? Hope not.

Come alive in Jesus Name! Begin to Praise the Lord. The more you praise the Lord, the more joy and spiritual life you will experience. Trust me I know, it’s the best thing that ever happen to me. If this is true for you, please leave a comment for me, and share your story.

Begin to praise Him right now. Hallelujah!

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