Revelation 19:6 (ESV) Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns.”
Even though only a small percentage of Hong Kong citizens profess to be Christian, many online videos have captured crowds singing, “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord” on the streets in recent months. This is among the protesters against a bill that some fear would extradite residents of Hong Kong to communist China.
The protests and singing have continued as the calls have broadened into a wider demand for democracy in the region.
On June 16th, and estimated two million people filled the streets of Hong Kong to urge the Chinese government to formally withdraw the legislation. On August 23rd a number of Christians took to the streets to stand against the Hong Kong government and communism. Wearing shirts that read “God Bless Hong Kong,” they again sang the popular anthem “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord” holding hands in a chain that stretched for miles as many others joined in.
A small number of Christians in Hong Kong have turned the darkness there into light. They are calling out to God and giving Him praise. Hallelujah=Praise the Lord.
America! Wake up. Let us sing praises to the Lord Almighty and give Him glory!
