The Sound of Victory

Read This Week: Revelation 15

And I saw what looked like a sea of glass glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and the number of its name. They held harps given to them by God and sang the song of God’s servant Moses and the Lamb: “Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the nations. Who will not fear you, Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will worship before.” – Revelation 15:2-4 NIV

John now sees the seven angels holding seven flasks or bottles of God’s wrath. In the previous chapter, the Scriptures told us that the wrath of God would be poured out as judgment on all those who worshiped the Antichrist, took the mark of the beast, and pledged their allegiance to the enemy. It says they will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath (14:10). The Lord is about to exact righteous judgment on His enemies in the form of the “third woe,” but before He does, there is another pause of blessing, spiritual reflection, and praise; to celebrate the impending victory of The Lamb.

These verses describe the revelator witnessing those who have come through the tribulation and endured the beast’s reign. These believers resisted the false prophet and his teaching, refused to take the mark of Satan, and withstood the vicious assault that the dragon unleashed on the world. They did not adopt the satanic system or give in to the mounting influence around them to consent to the evil forces that the devil sanctioned. They also confronted and did not participate in worshipping idols, false gods, and deceitful ideology. They stood firm and faithful at a high cost.

The believers of the tribulation, because they don’t take the mark of the beast, cannot hold jobs or buy and sell merchandise. They often go hungry, live in poverty, and make do with little to nothing. They depend entirely on God for their provision in every area of their lives. Some are thrown in prison, tortured, and publicly beaten, while others are murdered and executed. Yet, they remain faithful to Jesus and the mission of the gospel. They will not waver despite their suffering and will not relent regardless of their anguish. They stay true to God’s word, remain steadfast in His kingdom’s purposes, and lift their voice to make the sound of victory, a sure, eternal triumph that belongs to the King of Kings. Verses 2-4 illustrate this sound of success with these words:

Those who had been victorious over the beast held harps given by God and sang the song of the Lamb: “Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the nations, for you alone are holy, and all nations will come and worship before you.

The actions, behaviors, songs, and examples of these Christ followers should be an encouragement, blessing, and inspiration to all of us in our time. It provides us with hope and assurance that amid our suffering, we can remain faithful and devoted to the God of the universe and His promises. We don’t have to succumb to the world’s influences or embrace the systems of men just because so many others do. We can stand on the word, speak boldly of love and grace, and make a joyful sound of victory among our family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and community. We can be victorious because of Jesus.

    Revelation 15 verse 3
    A song of Moses, a song of victory and deliverance, that the redeemed who overcome the enemy, and his system will readily identify with you my daughter and family of God are believers of Christ.

    What that means to me!!!
    His Works are marvelous, who did all work himself that our Jesus, and then I close my eyes in a seen a beautiful mountain, and realized that the one who created that, he also loved us enough, that He climbed on the cross and suffered for us. He is our king and all this. He is not just a loving God, but a just in true God as well.

    Revelation 15 Verses 2 and 5 are what my focus was drawn to this week from God.

    2 Then I saw what seemed to be a glassy sea blended with fire, and those who had come off victorious from the beast and from his statue and from the number corresponding to his name were standing beside the glassy sea, with harps of God in their hands.

    5 After this I looked and the sanctuary of the tent of the testimony in heaven was thrown open,

    What God said to me on this is “It is easy to suffocate yourself by allowing your fears to get the better of you. Your fears are only based on the reality you see in front of you in this world. But I urge you to think beyond and open your mind to Me, to see the wonders that are there for you. Take down your barricades and let Me flow through you.”

    This means so much to me. I think of an example of a friend of mine explaining how helium works when you breathe it in. It actually replaces the oxygen and suffocates the brain leaving you gasping for air wether you realize it or not. Think of how nefarious of a suffocation that is. The same goes for the world. Slowly it creeps up and encompasses our thoughts, feelings and emotions, but its up to us to recognize that and allow ourselves to be released from its grip. God gave me this sentence which is quite profound.

    “We know what we know because it is all we know, but there is so much more to know than we even know.”

    We are so blessed. Thank you God.

    This is what I got from Revelation 15. These seven plagues are representing My judgement on a disobedient and contrary world. Here My hot wrath will fulfill an eternal purpose. The sea of glass is designed to reflect My glory. The fire is a reminder of the fires of judgement. The standing on the sea of glass is also a representation of My word. With the harps, these Tribulation martyrs are given the blessing of worshiping Me with music in heaven. They sing a song of Moses, and they sing the song of the Lamb. This song gives praise to My works, My ways, My worthiness and My worship. This song of true worship, shows that is all about Me. The angels bring My judgement with the seven plagues. When the cloud of glory fills the temple in heaven, no one can enter. The bowls and the clouds come from “My glory and from My power.” This declares the judgement is now irreversible.

    What this said to me was the more I know of God’s wonderful works, the more I am to praise His greatness as the Lord God Almighty. I am to shine His beacon of light onto others, so that others will come to Him, before it’s too late.
