Revelation can be a terrifying book to read and a difficult thing to understand.
However, the one thing I’m always drawn to, fascinated with, and encouraged by is the great and mighty throng that worship God in Heaven. All throughout this book, we see a common thread of worship described in the most beautiful terms.
And even in this passage, in the midst of the suffering and judgement being poured out onto the earth below, those in Heaven are worshiping and praising God Almighty for His power, love, goodness, and justice.
Revelation 11:15 (NIV)
The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said:
“The kingdom of the world has become
the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah,
and he will reign for ever and ever.”
This passage makes me so excited for Heaven.
I can’t wait for the salvation that we’ve been promised to finally be fully realized.
I can’t wait for the moment when Jesus finally has complete victory and rule over the earth.
I can’t wait for pain, suffering, and death to be gone.
I can’t wait for the joy of His presence.
And I can’t wait to worship God with millions of others who have been set free by Jesus and are overcome by the love of God.
Oh the love of God. It’s beyond comprehension.
Christmas is but a glimpse.
Easter a glimmer.
Heaven is where we will finally see in full the beautiful masterpiece God has been creating for thousands of years.
And it will be beautiful.
And we will worship.
And He shall reign forevermore.
Father, thank You for your great love in sending Jesus to live in our world, take on our sin, and die our death so that we could one day soon enter into Your Kingdom and live with You forever. Thank You for Your love. Thank You for Your power. Thank You for Your justice. I can’t wait to worship You in Your home, as You sit on upon Your throne in victory, but in the meantime, I will worship You here and now as You give me glimpses of the great joy that awaits me in Heaven with You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
