Thousand Thousand Angels
(Revelation 5.11-12)
Page 113

"Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they were saying: 'Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!'" (Revelation 5.11-12)✞

Countless Numbers

TrumpetsThe countless numbers of a thousand thousand angels were praising the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, who was worthy to open the scroll. Angels were not human but rather spiritual beings having been formed by God before the creation to serve and worship him either as messengers or as ministers for some other particular reason in the service of the Almighty.

One Hundred Million

Angels by the ThousandTen thousand times ten thousand angels is literally one hundred million plus one million. It is used by John of Patmos to express a countless number like the stars in the sky or the grains of sand on the seashore. In today's scientific language, a thousand thousands would be called infinity or 10 to the power of 8, if my math is correct or 101,000,000. Some would simply say "a countless number!"
