The imagery of Revelation is somewhat wild and hard to take in. The scene is something beyond my imagination and often it seems it’s beyond John’s imagination. I’m not sure what I expect when I get to heaven, but there are times when I’m reading Revelation that I’m pretty sure that is not what I was expecting.
He tells about some of the “woes” that are coming and I think the intent of these “woes” are to give the people on earth another chance to turn to God. This one I came across today was about another scene in heaven that looked like it might be a bit more familiar. Check this out…15 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.” 16 And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying: “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign. (Revelation 11:15-17 NIV)
The song being sung was worship to the King of Kings. He is present and the scene here in heaven looks a bit like a worship service. I need to bow down and worship Him. I need to be aware of my posture in His Presence. I need to humble myself before Him. The words of the songs are not nearly as important as the posture of my heart. I want to surrender my heart to Him today and every day here on earth and then for eternity in heaven. It’s going to be amazing there!Pressing On! Dwayne
