Matthew Henry's 1 Chronicles Chapter 16 Bible commentary...
The solemnity with which the ark was fixed. (1-6) David's psalm of praise. (7-36) Setting in order the worship of God. (37-43)1-6 Though God's word and ordinances may be clouded and eclipsed for a time, they shall shine out of obscurity. This was but a tent, a humble dwelling, yet this was the tabernacle which David, in his psalms, often speaks of with so much affection. David showed himself generous to his subjects, as he had found God gracious to him. Those whose hearts are enlarged with holy joy, should show it by being open-handed.
7-36 Let God be glorified in our praises. Let others be edified and taught, that strangers to him may be led to adore him. Let us ourselves triumph and trust in God. Those that give glory to God's name are allowed to glory in it. Let the everlasting covenant be the great matter of our joy his people of old, be remembered by us with thankfulness to him. Show forth from day to day his salvation, his promised salvation by Christ. We have reason to celebrate that from day to day; for we daily receive the benefit, and it is a subject that can never be exhausted. In the midst of praises, we must not forget to pray for the servants of God in distress.
37-43 The worship of God ought to be the work of every day. David put it into order. At Jerusalem, where the ark was, Asaph and his brethren were to minister before the ark continually, with songs of praise. No sacrifices were offered there, nor incense burnt, because the altars were not there; but David's prayers were directed as incense, and the lifting up of his hands as the evening sacrifice. So early did spiritual worship take place of ceremonial. Yet the ceremonial worship, being of Divine institution, must by no means be omitted; therefore at Gibeon, at the altars, the priests attended; for their work was to sacrifice and burn incense; and that they did continually, morning and evening, according to the law of Moses. As the ceremonies were types of the mediation of Christ, the observance of them was of great consequence. The attendance of his appointed ministers is right in itself, and encourages the people.

If the people you listen to do not admit that Christ Jesus came to earth, was crucified for our sins and rose from the grave and ascended to heaven to sit on the right hand of God, if they say anything other than that then that, they are deceivers and come from Satan ! Hope that helped?

I think it’s a key to increase... thanks and giving ... thanksgiving as a compound word... appreciating God for Who He is and giving as an imitation of that very nature we are appreciating Him for... even if it happens that He does not return a harvest back unto us, that does not change Who He is deep within us... Amen.

Jesus Christ gave but 1 test ; He said : ‘’Ye shall know them by their fruits.’’ Matthew 7:15-29.
The word also says in 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21 ‘’ Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.’’ So we have to scan everything in the light of the word of God.
And as we have soft and obedient hearts, the holy spirit shall always lead us in that task.
God bless you.

There are so many prophets and healers performing miracles today. Some of them even predicting what will happen the following days. In old African cultures ‘’Sangomas’’ used to do a similar job but through different media. How can we know that they are true servants of God or not.

Inspironing! It is a "sample" of the things we must do to keep our eye on the prize (GOD) and remind us "often" to look to him..
