Sing Lord Song
(Revelation 15.2b-3a)
Page 216

"Standing beside the sea are those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and over the number of its name. They held harps given them by God and sang the song of God's servant Moses and of the Lamb: 'Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty.'" (Revelation 15.2b-3a)

Victorious Martyrs

Moses Crossing the Red SeaThe victorious martyrs sang the Lord song. They sang the song of the Lamb which was the Redeemed Ones Song that they alone were able to learn. They also sang Moses' and Miriam's songs, from Exodus 15 after the safe crossing of the Red Sea. "The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation. Who among the gods is like you, Lord? Who is like you — majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders? The Lord reigns for ever and ever." The phrase, "the Lord is my strength and my song" may also be translated as "the Lord is my strength and my defense." Our song is also our defense!

Recite the Shema

Bedtime ShemaTo sing the song of the Lord was stamped upon the memory of every Jews at each Sabbath evening service in the synagogue. There, they recited the "Shema", the creed of Israel, and followed it with two prayers and one of these prayers called them to sing a special song, "A new song did they that were delivered sing to thy name by the sea-shore, together did all praise and own thee King, and say, 'Jehovah shall reign, world without end. Blessed be the Lord who saves Israel.'"

Moses' Song

Heartfelt PraiseMoses' song commemorated the greatest deliverance in the history of God's people. The victorious martyrs were brought through the seas of persecution to sing a new song unto the Lord in the promised land of Heaven.
