Jesus the King of Kings

In John’s vision described in Revelation, he saw an open door in heaven and scenes of unsurpassed glory. In Chapter 4 he says that twenty-four “elders”, beings of unknown splendor, sat arrayed on their awesome thrones. They were joined by four “living creatures”, great immortal spirits, drawn from far-off dimensions of the angelic world. They all worshipped God. First they worshipped him as the Creator. Then, in Chapter 5, John saw this dazzling choir augmented by endless multitudes: “Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands and ten thousand times ten thousand. In a loud voice they sang, ‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain.’ Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing, ‘To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever” (Rev 5:11-13). Worship of the Creator turned to worship of the Lamb, the Deliverer, who redeemed us when we were hostage to sin. He paid our ransom at the cost of his own outpoured life blood. What glorious salvation! REINHARD BONNKE
