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 Christ,
and he will reign for ever and ever.”
And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, 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))
I can’t wait for that day!
The day that God’s creation once again comes fully under His authority.
What a wonderful day that will be.
We are told of the wonderful splendor of the world from this day forth. We know that we will be in paradise.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
(Revelation 21:1-4 (NIV))
We, like every single person alive, has had to make a choice about whether we believe and accept the grace that God gave us through His Son, Jesus, or whether we reject this offer. Our choice will determine whether we rejoice with the twenty-four elders or whether we face eternal separation from God. We must help bring people to the right choice.
Will others rejoice because of your faithfulness?
