praiseREVELATION 15

The song of Moses … and of the Lamb

SCRIPTURE

v.3″Great and Marvellous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty…”

OBSERVATION

In these verses there is a vision of a triumphant song of praise by those who had been victorious over the beast. Contemplation of God’s ways and deeds leads naturally into this beautiful song.  Seven bowls of God’s judgment are outpoured on the earth (see next chapter).

APPLICATION

Moses gave thanks to God after Israel’s deliverance (Exodus 15) and echoes of that song are here. Supremely, we celebrate the deeds revealed in the person and work of Jesus: “Who will not bring glory to His Name?” (v.4)

PRAYER

Lord Jesus, Help me to worship You from a heart that knows how much You have loved me and seeks to worship You.
