At God's Command
“The Lord gives the word, and a great army brings the good news. Enemy kings and their armies flee, while the women of Israel divide the plunder. Even those who lived among the sheepfolds found treasures— doves with wings of silver and feathers of gold. The Almighty scattered the enemy kings like a blowing snowstorm on Mount Zalmon.” Psalms 68:11-14 NLT
At God's command, all of creation submits in obedience. No king will ever reign and no army will ever march that will be as great as He! He is the KING of kings! He is the LORD of lords! “From his mouth came a sharp sword to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He will release the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty, like juice flowing from a winepress. On his robe at his thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.” Revelation 19:15-16 NLT God has often delivered His children (Israel) from their adversaries. In victory He gave them opportunity to joy in Him and enjoy the plunder of the spoils. Hosts of worshippers would chant praises to God for His mighty hand of deliverance. In Exodus 15 we read the victory song of Israel after they had crossed safely to the other side of the Red Sea. “Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the Lord: “I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously; he has hurled both horse and rider into the sea.” Exodus 15:1 NLT What has God delivered you from? What enemy has He cast down for you to have victory? Sing His praises! He is the Mighty Deliverer!!! The greatest enemy He has delivered us from is sin and death. He has defeated Satan, sin, sickness, sorrow, and suffering. He is The Savior!!! Through Jesus Christ we have victory! “But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57 NLT “For Christ must reign until he humbles all his enemies beneath his feet. And the last enemy to be destroyed is death.”
1 Corinthians 15:25-26 NLT “Then I heard again what sounded like the shout of a vast crowd or the roar of mighty ocean waves or the crash of loud thunder: “Praise the Lord! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns. Let us be glad and rejoice, and let us give honor to him. For the time has come for the wedding feast of the Lamb, and his bride has prepared herself. She has been given the finest of pure white linen to wear.” For the fine linen represents the good deeds of God’s holy people.” Revelation 19:6-8 NLT His people should rise in a united triumphal march as we proclaim His saving power. The day will come when we will all (the born again) cry in unison the victory song of the redeemed! “And I saw a great white throne and the one sitting on it. The earth and sky fled from his presence, but they found no place to hide. I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God’s throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books. The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds. Then death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This lake of fire is the second death. And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:11-15 NLT A new Heaven and Earth are awaiting the redeemed. On that Day, the old will be gone! The saints will rule and reign on this earth the way God intended from the beginning. Then, we will sing his praises eternally!! “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.”” Revelation 21:1-5 NLT “And they sang a new song with these words: “You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. And you have caused them to become a Kingdom of priests for our God. And they will reign on the earth.” Then I looked again, and I heard the voices of thousands and millions of angels around the throne and of the living beings and the elders. And they sang in a mighty chorus: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered— to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing.” And then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea. They sang: “Blessing and honor and glory and power belong to the one sitting on the throne and to the Lamb forever and ever.” And the four living beings said, “Amen!” And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped the Lamb.” Revelation 5:9-14 NLT
