Jennie Riddle, author of Revelation Song, asked the Holy Spirit to provide her a song which would be a painting of God, a song which the angels and all of creation were already singing, so that we as believers could join in the worship with one voice to our one King. The song given to her was Revelation Song. A song inspired directly from scripture itself.
Ezekiel 1:26-28 says of heaven... "There was a throne of sapphire, and high above the throne was a figure like that of a man. I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire, and a brilliant light surrounded him. Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord."
Revelation 4:2-3,5 says... "There before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian. A rainbow, resembling an emerald, encircled the throne. From the throne came flashed of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder."
This painting of God should cause each of us to be filled with an awestruck wonder! And remember this: in heaven for all eternity voices around the throne of God himself sing, "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty! Who was, and is, and is to come!" Let's join in that song. As one church. And imagine every generation of every nationality singing this praise to Him!
As we do, never forget the worthiness of the Lamb that was slain. The reason we sing. To Jesus all power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise (Revelation 5:12).
worship Him 24/7...
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Holy, holy is He
Sing a new song to Him who sits on
Heaven's mercy seat
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come
With all creation I sing praise to the King of kings
You are my everything and I will adore You
Clothed in rainbows of living color
Flashes of lighting rolls of thunder
Blessing and honor strength and glory and power be
To You the only wise King
Filled with wonder awestruck wonder
At the mention of Your name
Jesus Your name is power, breath and living water
Such a marvelous mystery
