Revealed: Redemption’s Song

Marvellous work.

“And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.”
Revelation 15:3-4 KJV

Fountainview Academy: Wonderful Words of Life

Ask any songwriter where inspiration comes from, and many will tell you: “life experiences.” Amidst recording the mayhem created by the devil, John delights in a victory chorus, sung only by Earth’s redeemed. All voices, trained and untrained, lift praises to their Savior. Believer, today, you are writing the words to this song!

More singing foreshadows John’s record of the plagues. This time, victorious thousands sing on a sea smooth as glass—a sea of redeemed at rest—at peace—a peace passing all earthly understanding.

“Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.”

“Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.”
Exodus 15:1-2; 11-13 KJV

For a challenging Bible study, look for Scripture verses that speak the message of each angel in Revelation 14:6-13:

The first angel trumpets true worship and celebrates Christ’s role as Creator:

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.”
Psalm 121:2 KJV

The second angel trumpets a fallen, false power that has deceived many:

“Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.”
Acts 18:9-10 KJV

The third angel trumpets a death warning for those who choose false worship:

“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.”
Deuteronomy 33:27 KJV

If you are looking for an in-depth study on the prophecy and symbols John writes about in Revelation, I recommend the Amazing Facts Media Library.
