Halleluiah!


I always love to play Handel's Messiah" on Christmas day. Every word from the entire composition taken exclusively from Scripture, and this is the chorus most familiar to the majority of people. The words are from the following three verses from the book of Revelation.
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. (Revelation 19:6)

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.(Revelation 11:15)

On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.(Revelation 19:16)

Halleluiah! Have a blessed Christmas
