The word hallelujah doesn't mean what you think it means...
Ron Cantor


Hi, everybody. My name is Ron Cantor and I am the Regional Director for GOD TV in Israel and welcome to God Today. Now I want to teach you a brand new word. Are you ready? Hallelujah. Wait, you’re saying – come on, that’s not a brand new word. Listen, let me just share something with you that is going to make your day. The word hallelujah doesn’t mean what you think it means. It doesn’t mean hallelujah; hallelujah, praise the Lord. It’s actually a command. In Hebrew, it is in the command form third-person.

So, in other words, it’s actually two words. It’s hallelu yah. Yah means Yahweh or God, Lord God Almighty and hallelu is to praise. So, when I say hallelu, I’m speaking plural to a group of people and I’m saying, “Hey, you group of people over there, praise Yahweh.”  Every time that you shout “Hallelujah”, you’re not actually speaking to God, you’re speaking to men. You’re encouraging them to praise Yahweh.

So, when I shout “Hallelujah,”  I’m telling you, everyone in God Today, everyone that is able to see this video, I’m saying praise Yahweh because He’s awesome, He’s amazing, He loves you, and we need to be encouraging each other daily to continue to love Him, to praise Him, to spend time with Him. So, I want to encourage you, the next time that you say “Hallelujah,” that you understand you’re saying two words, that you’re encouraging your brothers and sisters to praise Him and right now I want to pray for you. Can we do that?

Father, in the name of Yeshua, Jesus, the Messiah, I bless everyone that is watching today and I want to say to them “Hallelujah, praise the Lord, the Living God!” Hey, thanks so much for being a subscriber to God Today.
