10 Things You Have In Common With MESSIANIC WORSHIP MUSIC

Against Deception | November 4, 2020

Did you know that some Christian worship songs are based on sacred music, or messianic worship? It’s true. This article will show you some examples of this so-called messianic worship music. Most churches today use some form of music to introduce praise and petition during church services. This has developed into a tradition over time. In fact, the hymn “Hosanna! God in Whom we trust” is an example of messianic music.

 

But what exactly is messianic music? Messianic worship music is actually a hybrid mix of sung praise and prayer along with instrumental music, or “chanting.” The music most often uses Gregorian chant along with elements of contemporary electronic music and sometimes overlays other melodic vocals over the traditional Gregorian chanting to produce what’s called “messianic blessing.” The musical effects may be anything from cascading gospel chords to synthesized bells, tambourines, or keyboards. Some of these songs use original spiritual messages which may be inspirational to those who are new to Christian worship but which are also well suited to Christian hymns because they highlight praise and worship songs instead of repetitious praise.

 

Many churches today use this type of music to introduce praise and petition before services. They also use it for intermission between services to give an opportunity for people to pause, reflect, and gather their thoughts. In addition, some churches use music on Sunday morning for another way of starting the day by serving the people with praise and worship songs from the Word of God. That’s why music is very important to worship songs.

 

But is Christian music “just” worship music? Is it just Christian music that has been simplified for convenience or is it a form of worship that reaches out and touches the hearts of those listening to it? Are Christians using music in worship to reach out and touch others in a way that is more personal than just singing a hymn? What is the distinction between traditional forms of worship and modern Christian music?

 

Traditional forms of worship rely on musical instruments such as choirs, organ, harp, guitar, and other instruments that are specifically chosen for their sound and beauty. The songs sung or played are specifically selected to communicate a specific message. Most classical music was created specifically for this purpose: to speak to the person being held within the piece. The words and notes are deliberately chosen to have a special impact in the mind of those listening.

 

Most Christian music today has been modified and takes it’s message to new heights. Music in worship doesn’t need to do this. It can be chosen to speak to an entirely different kind of person. The message can be adapted so that it will appeal to everyone. Music can be adapted for specific genres such as Christian music, jazz, rock, country, and many others that fall under the larger umbrella of Christian music.

 

Some music these days is uplifting and encourages us to get up and move. Some music will communicate a special message about the things we are grateful for and the hope that we have. This can be music that is inspiring and motivational. It can be a song that helps you sing along as you reflect on what your day has been like.

 

Some people will prefer certain types of music while others may not like at all. Some will simply choose something that they think will make them feel more comfortable. In a time when modern technology seems to have taken control of everything, there is still a place for traditional forms of worship. People will choose music to enjoy the experience of listening to it rather than choosing the most popular type of music. Music these days is usually carefully tailored to appeal to the people in any given place.
