What is your idea of what Heaven is like? What will we be doing? Of course we have no way of really knowing everything, but the Bible gives us some idea of at least part of what life will be like.
In the book of Revelation, chapter 5, verse 13 John tells us, “Then I heard all creatures in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea saying: ’To the One who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power forever and ever.”
And in Revelation 7:9-10, “…there was a great number of people, so many that no one could count them. They were from every nation, tribe, people, and language of the earth. They were all standing before the throne and before the Lamb, wearing white robes and holding palm branches in their hands. 10They were shouting in a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
Revelation 19:5-8 says, “5Then a voice came from the throne, saying:“Praise our God, all you who serve him and all you who honor him, both small and great!”6Then I heard what sounded like a great many people, like the noise of flooding water, and like the noise of loud thunder. The people were saying:“Hallelujah!Our Lord God, the Almighty, rules.7Let us rejoice and be happyand give God glory,because the wedding of the Lamb has come,and the Lamb’s bride has made herself ready.8Fine linen, bright and clean, was given to her to wear.”
I think we’re going to be spending a great deal of time praising God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
Have you ever been at a concert where one of your favorite bands or musicians played? What happens at the end of the show? Usually the crowd stands and applauds, right? And they sometimes go on for several minutes until the band comes out to do an encore. Everyone is euphoric at what a good show it’s been.
Now imagine at the end of time as we know it, when everything here is wrapped up, and God has made all things right. He’s wiped every tear, and the enemy has been finally and eternally sent to his final destination, never to bring heartbreak and havoc again. Don’t you think we will all just break out in praise and celebration of the Lamb? Since we will have eternity, it won’t be a problem to spend a thousand years or even ten thousand years singing hallelujahs and rejoicing at what He has done.
Today’s closing chapters of Psalms were just a small warm up for what awaits us when we see God face to face. Holy. Holy. Holy is the Lamb. Hallelujah! Great is He who’s the King of kings and Lord of lords!
