THE ALMIGHTY

Rev.15:2,3 – And I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of God.

And they *sang the song of Moses, the bond-servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and marvelous are Your works, O Lord God, the Almighty; Righteous and true are Your ways, King of the nations!

As in the gospel of John, the book of Revelation gives us a glimpse into the unthinkable mystery of the incarnation. Jesus is absolutely a man and at the same time He is totally God. John brings us into the scene in the throne room, a scene that is unspeakably holy. The martyrs are worshipping victoriously before the throne and are proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the Almighty God. All power and authority are displayed in this person, the Son of God. They see Him in His power as the Almighty and His sovereignty as ruler of the nations. Even in their death the Lord reigns and the martyrs are victorious. Here are some comments from Albert Barnes on today’s verse.

“…JEHOVAH—the uncreated and eternal One; that he is God—the creator, upholder, and sovereign of all things; and that he is Almighty—having all power in all worlds. All these names and attributes are suggested when we think of redemption; for all the perfections of a glorious God are suggested in the redemption of the soul from death. It is the Lord—the Ruler of all worlds; it is God—the Maker of the race, and the Father of the race, who performs the work of redemption; and it is a work which could be accomplished only by one who is Almighty.”

He has all power in all worlds and displays that power especially in His work of redemption. What kind of mess were you in or are you still in today? The power of God displayed through His Son is more than sufficient to heal any disease, break any bondage, heal any broken heart, and provide above and beyond what you can ask or think. More than that, He is able to satisfy the deep longings of our empty souls. Join with the martyrs around His throne and sing His praise, He is Almighty and the ruler of the nations.
