Instruments of praise

Psa 150:3  Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. 

A local group of brass players are getting together again to play Christmas music at the Mall this Sunday. Our first of two rehearsals was Friday. We had to tune our instruments and it made a big difference in the sound. Notes on various instruments in melody and harmony is quite a good sound. If the music gets in our emotions then it is projected to others emotions. Dull, uninspired notes do not make music. Much the same as in preaching, dull uninspired words are usually from the speakers own mind. The word of God is inspired in itself and when delivered with enthusiasm, God breathed, it is special. Lord help me to play with your breath, to praise you.

Lev 25:9  Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. 

2Ch 5:13  It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD; 

Psa 98:6  With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.

Mat 24:31  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
