A NEW SONG
“And they sung as it were a new song before the throne…and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth,” ( Revelations 14:3).
There is recorded an event in the book of Job, when “the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy,” (Job 38:7). That harmony was muted by sin and the subjection of creation to the bondage of vanity, as the creature became filled with self-will and rebellion. But the deep purging and purifying process results in a new song arising, the song of the ages begins to sing within our hearts again.
“Down in the human heart, crushed by the tempter,
Feelings lie buried that grace can restore,
Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness,
Chords that are broken will vibrate once more.”
“They sing as it were a new song before the throne”. Thrilling to note that the
word ‘song’ is the Greek word for ‘an ODE’. An ode isn’t the same as a hymn,
which is a song written and sung over and over, but an ode is a spontaneous
outflow of melody and praise that finds its expression in song by the Spirit’s
inner prompting. Men can learn hymns, they are written out in notes and words.
The unsanctified singer of ‘rock and roll music’ will also record his album of
hymns, to gain money from that realm also. But there is a SONG that the
unsanctified cannot sing, for it is not something produced by man, it is the
RELEASING OF THE SPIRIT’S MELODY.
We have carried within us a song that could not be released because of the bars of self-will and carnal rebellion. But the CROSS is canceling out the ‘self’, and the hour approaches when the last vestige of the threads of that veil shall be torn aside, there shall be an outflow of the Christ within, a new song. The world, long accustomed to the pipings and shriekings of their distorted music, negative beats that inflame the bestial passions of the flesh, shall awaken to hear the pure melodies of the harmony of God. Music that will soothe, comfort, and lift into realms of joy and peace.
