,, After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, "Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power to the Lord our God! "For true and righteous are His judgments, because He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication; and He has avenged on her the blood of His servants shed by her." Again they said, "Alleluia! And her smoke rises up forever and ever!" And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, "Amen! Alleluia!" Then a voice came from the throne, saying, "Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!" And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!”
Rev. 19: 1-6
In this chapter we have something new, something that is contrary to those horrors that we have studied so far, here we have the transition from darkness to God's period, so it says "And after this" so something is over and something else begins.
"And after this I heard the voice of a great multitude in heaven saying, 'Hallelujah!' At the beginning of this chapter, in the first six verses, the word 'Hallelujah' is mentioned several times, or maybe 'Hallelujah', which means praise the Lord."
"And after this I heard the voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, 'Hallelujah!' Salvation and glory and honor and power to our Lord: for his judgments are true and upright, because he hath condemned the great whore, which hath corrupted the earth with her fornication, and hath repented the blood of her servants at her hand. gives three great words: "glory and honor and power" which are given to the Lord because the land whose creator is the Lord is justly redeemed, but after many centuries it is again in His possession because we have seen before that only Jesus has a title to this land. still the Lord allows Satan to rule him to a certain extent but as we have seen before this possibility Satan will have until he fulfills God’s plan even though he fights fiercely against God he is actually only doing what God allows him to and must fit in with God And how human history on earth will end we have already seen and Satan will be cast into the Abyss for a thousand years
,, He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.”
Rev. 20: 2-3
and then later to Lake of Fire and that will be the final "end" for him.
,, And the devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”
Let's go back to our text, so God "redeemed" the earth, which today still "sighs and mourns" together with us and is waiting for a radical change to happen, and that is what the Apostle Paul writes:
,, because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.”
And that will happen in the future, and here we see that there is celebration in heaven now, but there is still weeping and wailing on earth because of the destruction of the great harlot:
,, "And they threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.'"Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!"”
Rev. 18: 19-20
The celebration in heaven is with the words, "Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and honor and power to our Lord; "and continues:
"For his judgments are true and righteous, because he condemned the great whore, who corrupted the land with her prostitution, and repented the blood of her servants at her hand. And the other said, Hallelujah! And her smoke went up for ever and ever. "
A very large percentage of unfaithful people accuse God of unjustly acting and judging, and we can see what is really happening from these verses about who is wrong with God or with man.
,, But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; and they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”
Rev. 9: 20-21
,, And great hail from heaven fell upon men, every hailstone about the weight of a talent. And men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.”
And we can say that after many warnings that God sent to people, "the hour was full" and then because people did not care and will not care for God and his warnings, God's righteous anger was poured out.
"For true and righteous are his judgments, because he hath condemned the great whore, which hath corrupted the earth by her whoring," and writes of the Antichrist and his worshipers:
,, "And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name."”
It goes on to say who will take part in this celebration:
"And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down, and worshiped the God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen, hallelujah. And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. And I heard as the voice of many people, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunder, saying, Alleluia. For the Lord God Almighty reigns. "
Earlier we studied and saw that these twenty-four elders are representatives of the whole Church of Christ and the four living beings (animals) are Seraphim and Cherubim. Besides them we see "many people" and we explained that they were saved from great trouble
,, And I said to him, "Sir, you know." So he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”
We continue to read, "Praise our God, all His servants, and those who fear Him, both small and great." So all redeemed and all God's creatures therefore angels and we have seen that before
,, And all the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen."”
Rev. 7: 11-12
The angels join in the hymn, but the angels do not have the joy of salvation because Christ did not die for them, but they are constantly before God and they rejoice very much when a sinner receives Christ, so now they celebrate with them.
Here, all together, they give sevenfold praise to God ... blessing and glory and wisdom and praise and honor and strength and power to our God forever and ever. Amen. "
There has never been a gathering of so many people and angels, and John describes them, "And I heard them as the voice of many people, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunders, which give glory to the Triune God," Hallelujah! . "
In that "new age" the king will be the Lord Almighty and there will be perfect justice and peace, there will be no sin and evil, everyone will be submissive and will live harmoniously and that is what has been lacking so far and will be lacking while this kingdom do not establish and then there will finally be a rule of justice in perfect peace and it will literally be "it" unlike all the kingdoms that have been so far and which will soon be on earth.
