Rejoice Scripture and Rejoice in the Bible Quest
Rejoice Bible Verses Explained

Does our Father want us to be Holy or happy? One must ask, do we have to be one or the other. Why can't we be both? God doesn't give us an ultimatum of choosing to be either Holy or happy. The problem that faces most people that view our merciful Father as stern and strict and angry and mean, is that the things that make them happy ... Are not Holy.

Beware of people who try and convince you that God doesn't want you to be happy. Nothing could be further from the Truth. Certainly the Lord does want us to be Holy; we learn that in the Old Testament:

Leviticus 11:44

For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be Holy; for I am Holy ...

... And in the New Testament

Matthew 5:48

Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect.

But, the Bible does not say that we should not be happy.

In fact, it was even in the commandments of the the Lord to rejoice!

Deuteronomy 12:7

And there ye shall eat before the Lord your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the Lord thy God hath blessed thee.

Paul teaches us that joy is a fruit of the spirit and part of the Kingdom of God:

Galatians 5:22-23

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Romans 14:16

Let not then your good be evil spoken of: For the Kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Rejoice Scripture and Rejoice in the Bible Vow
Rejoice Bible Verses Meaning

Even in tribulation we're supposed to be happy:

Matthew 5:11-12

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in Heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Romans 5:3-5

3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

1 Peter 3:14-16

14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

1 Peter 4:13-14

13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part He is evil spoken of, but on your part He is glorified.

John 16:33

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Rejoice Scripture - Rejoice in the Bible Reason
Rejoice Bible Verses Purpose

What was one of the reasons Jesus came into the world? So that we would have His joy within us.

Luke 2:10-11

10 And the Angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

John 17:13

And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

Jesus said that if we follow the example that He taught, we will be happy:

John 13:15-17

15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his Lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

God is joy! And we are made in His image. So, how could He possibly not want us to be joyful?!

Psalms 16:11

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalms 43:4

Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.

When Do We Rejoice Bible Verses

Did you catch that first one? When you live with the presence of the Lord in your life, you will experience the fullness of joy. What does "fullness of joy" mean to you? I don't know about you, but it sure sounds like the happiest one can be!

Happiness abides in your heart, and affects your spirit:

Proverbs 15:13

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

It is a joyous thing to put your love, hope, trust, and protection in the hands of the Lord.

Psalms 5:11

But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

Psalms 16:20

He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.

Psalms 28:7

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise Him.

Psalms 35:9

Psalms 63:7

Psalms 146:5

Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God ...

Rejoice Scripture - Rejoice in the Bible Hope
How to Rejoice Bible Verses

Ever notice that in many of the Psalms, praise is equated with happiness? It makes perfect sense ... Have you ever praised God without a happy feeling in your heart?

Psalms 95:1-2

1 O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto Him with psalms.

Psalms 98:4

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the Earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

Of course, every moment of life is not spent in happiness. In this scripture, Solomon tells us to go ahead and be joyful when things are going well, but when they aren't, don't forget that God loves balance, and He will do whatever it takes so that man doesn't ever get the wrong idea, and believe that he is more than he is.

Ecclesiastes 7:14

In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.

God uses everything in our life, both good and bad, to build our character and our maturity in Christ.

Everything in the Heavens and on the Earth rejoices in knowing that they are the Lord's!

Psalms 65:8-13

8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.
13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.

Psalms 96:11-13

11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
13 Before the Lord: for He cometh, for He cometh to judge the earth: He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with His Truth.

Psalms 97:1

The Lord reigneth; let the Earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

Understanding the Word brings happiness:

Nehemiah 8:9-12

9 And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the Lord your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law.
10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.
11 So the Levites stilled all the people, saying, Hold your peace, for the day is holy; neither be ye grieved.
12 And all the people went their way to eat, and to drink, and to send portions, and to make great mirth, because they had understood the words that were declared unto them.

Psalms 89:15-16

15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.
16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.

Psalms 19:8

Grace is a gift from God. As is Happiness;

Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun.

In the Rejoice Bible verses, when Jesus was explaining to His disciples that He would be crucified, He said that after His resurrection, nobody would be able to steal their happiness from them.

John 16:22

If God is joy, and you walk with the Holy Spirit guiding you ...

Amos 3:3

Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

I ask you, after considering all the Truth from Scripture that you have just discovered, ask instead, Can a Christian walk with Jesus and not be happy? It's contrary to the Bible.
