THE CHORUS

In Greek theater, the chorus was the part of the cast which moved the story along.  They were the “voice” of the drama, and  spoke or sang in unison so their message had to be clear and understandable.

In God’s Nativity story we hear about a multitude of heavenly hosts.  This was most likely a cast of thousands or even more.  Each voice was perfect and clear as a bell.  There was no question as to what the message was.  We don’t know if they were singing, because the Bible says they were praising God and saying –  but usually praise involves lifting your voice in song.

These angels had to be thrilled at what was taking place.  They were there at the beginning, when their brother Lucifer chose to think he was better than the rest of them and his Creator – and decided to branch out on his own.  He  was kicked out of heaven and destined to a life of misery that would last forever.

At that time, God promised His people that a Savior would come to take away the evil that had infiltrated His world.  It was quite a while before that happened, so I’m certain the angels were happy beyond belief when it finally did.

I’m fortunate to be part of a church that has an amazing choir.  The voices are perfectly blended and create wonderful sounds.  Can you imagine the sound of an angelic choir?  We’ve never heard the likes of it in our lives – but the day is coming when He will appear again and the voices of those angels will sing once more.  Come soon, Lord, Jesus!

There were thousands, maybe millions, singing praise to God on high.

Every voice was clear and perfect, as they gave their royal cry.

We, like those holy angels, sing of peace on earth to men,

And wait like little children ’til our Savior comes again.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
