The Power Of God Is In Your Singing!

Benai Emunah Institute

Miracle singers, your time has come, and the power of God is in your singing! In 2 Corinthians 10, we read that we fight against an unseen enemy, and we have power to destroy him:

For the weapons we fight with are not fleshly but mighty in Elohim for overthrowing strongholds, overthrowing reasonings and every high matter that exalts itself against the knowledge of Elohim, taking captive every thought to make it obedient to the Messiah.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5

In fact, Yehovah gives gifts of singing to destroy the works of the enemy. For this reason, it is a must for singers to sing to Yehovah!

Do you think the enemy wants gifted singers singing? No! He will do what it takes to stifle the voices of gifted singers who are in Messiah!

Song And Might

In my Biblical Hebrew studies at the Israel Institute of Biblical Studies we learned of linguistic transformations that resulted in words having multiple meanings. An example of such transformation is the word זמרה (zimrah). According to the Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament, זמרה (zimrah) means “song, might” and also “plucking.”1 And, according to my Cohen instructor, it is believed to be the “power of God in the song!”

 זמרת (zimrat) is first used in Exodus 15:2, “The Song of the Sea.” The children of Israel sang this song when Yehovah miraculously delivered them from Pharoah and his army by dividing the Sea of Reeds and killing their enemies. But don’t underestimate this song. This song is a might/song and is the first of its kind in the Bible. See Exodus 15:2.

But did the miraculous singing stop at the Sea of Reeds in Exodus? No! The might/singing continues today for new covenant believers!

Power Singing In The New Testament

Power Singing in the New Testament

When I explored the word זמר (zamar, “song/might”) in the Hebrew B’rit Chadashah (New Testament)2, I found it in the following verses: Luke 15:25; Romans 15:9; Colossians 3:16; James 5:13; Ephesians 5:19; 1 Corinthians 14:15, 26; 1 Peter 1:7, and Revelation 5:9, 14:3, 15:3.

In fact, I discovered that זמר (zamar, “song/might”) in the fifth chapter of James expects all people sing and praise! Especially gifted might/singers!

ואם אחד בכם סובל איזה דבר הוא צריך לתפלל ואם אחד בכם בטוב לב זה צריך לזמר תהילים

And if one of you suffers anything, he must pray; and if one of you has a good heart, he must* זמר (zamar, “sing/might”) psalms.2 (emphasis mine)

*צריך : need, should, must, necessary, obligated

You want to know why this finding is important? Because you won’t see this in the Greek! Let’s compare.

Hebrew vs Greek

Hebrew Versus Greek

For example, in the Cambridge Hebrew B’rit Chadashah the word זָמַר (zamar “might/song”) is found at Revelation 5:9, 14:3, 15:3; Colossians 3:16; Ephesians 5:19. Yet in the Greek New Testament, ᾄδουσιν (adousin) is found at these same verses. The word ᾄδουσιν (adousin) is defined by Strong’s as “to the praise of anyone; to sing.“

Also, the Greek B’rit Chadashah at 1 Corinthians 14:15, 26 and at Romans 15:9 has the word ψαλῶ (psallō), “I will sing.” And at James 5:13 the Greek word for “sing” is ψαλλέτω (psalletō), “let him sing praises.” And 1 Peter 1:7 in the Greek is ἔπαινον (epainon) meaning, “praise.” And lastly, in Luke 15:26, the Greek word is συμφωνίας (symphōnias), meaning “music.”

What does these findings mean? It means the Cambridge B’rit Chadashah2 is not a translation from Greek to Hebrew. But in fact, it contains Hebrew markers according to the first century tradition – a singing tradition!

Drive Demons Away In Your Singing

Consider King David’s gift of singing. David had the miraculous gift of “power singing.” David didn’t seek out great men. Great men sought David:

And one of the servants answered and said, “Look, I have seen a son of Jesse of Bethlehem, who knows how to play; a brave one, and a man of battle, and skilled in words, and a handsome man. And Yehovah  is with him.”

1 Samuel 16:18

It’s a gift that leads others to the gifted.

Also consider that when Saul’s servants sought David, it was David’s miraculous gift of singing that quieted Saul’s spirit:

And it came to be, whenever the evil spirit from Elohim was upon Saul, that David would take a lyre and play it with his hand. Then Saul would become refreshed and well, and the evil spirit would leave him.

1 Samuel 16:23

Also consider, in David’s lifetime he became known as the gifted singer of Elohim’s (God’s) power:

And these are the last words of David, the saying of David son of Jesse, the saying of the man raised above, the anointed of the Elohim of Jacob, and the זָמַר (“power singer”) of Israel. (emphasis mine)

2 Samuel 23:1

What were the qualifications for David to sing for the tormented Saul? David knew how to play, was brave, a man of battle, skilled in words, handsome, and Yehovah was with him. Interesting combination of qualifications. But the most important qualification is that Yehovah was with David. And Yehovah is also with you!

The Song Of The 144,000

But wait! There’s more! With Hebrew B’rit Chadashah (New Testament) manuscript2, I was not only able to identify the gift of power singing. But the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) led me to discover something much more exciting. I discovered that the Song of the Sea will be the same song sung by the 144,000! What?! Janice, did you say it is the song of the 144,000? Why yes, I did!

Think about it. The Song of the Sea was not only the first song sang but will be the last song! Remember when Yeshua said He is the first and the last, the beginning and the end in Revelation 1:8, 11, & 17? He was quoting Yehovah in Isaiah 44:6, 48:12, and 41:4. And since He is the beginning and the ending, He led the first song, but also leads the final song! Be sure to watch this video for more details on the song of the 144,000. There will be more details coming on this topic in the future; for this is a power-packed topic!

“Thus said Yehovah, Sovereign of Israel, and his Redeemer, Yehovah of hosts, ‘I am the First and I am the Last, besides Me there is no Elohim.”

Isaiah 44:6

Let The Miracles Begin!

Song and Might

Lastly, we should consider the miraculous gift of singing given to David as well as the obligation to might/sing. In fact, this is part of our spiritual warfare. If we are granted the gift as was given to David, then our praises will drive demons away.

And also consider, you may be one of the chosen 144,000 to sing the Song Of The Sea with Yeshua at the end! Then you, the chosen, will see something even more miraculous than ever!

The time has come, and the power of God is in your singing! Sing songs of praise (הַלֵּל – hallels) to Yehovah. For His worthiness is not contingent on our situations! Because power and might-singing through trials and tribulations brings even more glory to His Name. Hallels to Yah!

    Amen sister! Thank you

  2. Janice Baca says:

    Why can no one learn the song of the 144,000? Because there are missing verses. The song will have to be revealed to the 144,000 in that day.

  3. Praise God for the Song of the 144,000!
    Written and kept for the last generation of Messiah believers.
    Certainly not known nor sung by Jehovah Witnesses. That alone disproves the cult.
