Nightly Choirs (by D.A. Cobb)

images-2In my second book[1] I related to seeing images of a spiritual nature after closing my eyes at night and before falling asleep. I have not seen them recently but in their place I now hear choirs. Yes, angelic like choirs. Most times the singers are male, sometimes female and on very rare occasions a mix. There are no instruments and no words just beautiful and haunting voices. It is very soothing and a wonderful way to begin a peaceful nights rest.

I have no idea why the visions appear and no conclusions to why these choirs are heard. I struggle daily with their purpose and can only believe God has orchestrated these moments and will someday offer an explanation to this thirsty pilgrim. It is with confidence I continue studying His Word, witnessing to the hurting and by using His spiritual gifts to help lead the lost to a more welcoming pasture.

There are one hundred and twenty eight verses in my Bible with music as its theme. Music and singing must have a special place in God’s plan.

It is my understanding after reading Deuteronomy 31:20-22 God instructs Moses to compose a song and teach it to the people. Why? So they would not forget their God after they entered the Promised Land. He knew they would someday reject Him, worship false idols and break the covenant. He also wanted them to remember the good times, those overflowing with milk and honey, and how their sin came between them and the Lord.

Read with spiritual understanding the Song of Moses found in Deuteronomy 32.

Yes, God does use music to instruct His followers. Just read the Book of Psalms and hear the words David sings.

Now listen as Paul writes in chains from his jail cell to the church in Ephesus,

“speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:19-20

Maybe you can think of or write a song that praises the Lord, giving thanks for His abundant love and the promise of everlasting life.
