The Word – Halal (Haw-lal)

· Halal is defined as: to be clear (originally of sound, but usually of color); to shine; hence to make a show; to boast; and thus, to be (clamorously) foolish; to rave; causatively to celebrate; Strong’s Concise Dictionary

· From Halal we get the word Hallelujah: Halal (praise) -Yah (Yahweh or Jehovah) (Revelation 19:1, 4, 6)

· The “Hallal” is the collection of Psalm 113-118 which are read by the Jewish people at Passover, Pentecost & Feast of Tabernacles (Psalm 113:1-3)

· The practical meaning of the word “Halal” is to be so focused on the Lord that we cease to be self-conscious, being completely enraptured in our praise of who our God is and what He has done

· Psalm 150 is about “how to Halal”

The Stories – David & the Ark (II Samuel 6); The “Sinner” & Jesus (Luke 7; 2 Samuel 6:16, 21)

The Takeaways:

· Focus on God – do not focus on your lack of self-consciousness

· Focus on who He is, what He has done (Psalm 150:2; Psalm 106:1; Psalm 117:1-2)

· Giving is a part of Halal

· Music is an important vehicle of worship (Ephesians 5:19)

· Praise Him everywhere!
