May 19

Written by Bill Grandi on May 19th, 2022

Do I call Revelation 15 the song of the saints or the calm before the storm? For this devotion, let’s go with both for that is what it is. Chapter 16 unleashes the bowls of wrath and Armageddon (I looked at the headings preceding the paragraphs. I have yet to read it).  🙂 But rather than try to put my stamp of interpretation of chapter 15, let’s just meditate on the song in verses 3-4. I wish I was a musician who could sit down and put this into song. What a powerful praise song it would be. But since I’m not…

Just a couple thoughts/highlights of chapter 15:

1. God’s works are great and marvelous.

2. His ways are righteous and true.

3. We will fear (adore, honor, worship) the Lord and glorify His Name.

4. God’s righteousness will bring worship from all people.

The consummation of this worship was the majesty and glory and power which filled the temple (not earthly but heavenly). The angels were being prepared for what was to come.

“Father, may my praise fill the temple. May my praise be that which flows from my heart of adoration to You, the One worthy of it.”

    Have you ever heard the song Ancient of Days?

      I have! Assurance is an important part of the Christian walk Ed. Followers of Christ have the assurance of being in that number. It is good to hear from you. Your address keeps coming back to me as unavailable.

  2. May we all be filled to overflowing with praises for God.
    Blessings, Bill!

    No doubt, it will be and IS a powerful illustration of God’s Power and Majesty.
    He is deserving or our complete worship, then… and now.

    Thanks for sharing this morning.

    Father, you are the Great I AM, you never fail to astonish me. May my praise for you find no ceiling that can contain it. May the praises I sing, have a never ending chorus.
