Glory Power
(Revelation 19.3-4)
Page 270

"And again they shouted "Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever. "The twenty four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried 'Amen, Hallelujah!'" (Revelation 19.3-4)


HallelujahGod was praised because "salvation glory and power" belonged to him. Each of these three great attributes should awaken its own response in our hearts. The "salvation of God" should release our gratitude for the once crucified Jesus, the "glory of God" should bring forth our reverence at the greatness of the Creation all around us and of God himself and the "power of God" should awaken our trust in him alone. These three are the constituent elements of real praise.

True Judgements

God is praised because he has exercised his "true and just judgments" on the Great Harlot in Revelation 19. Judgment was the inescapable consequence of sin. It was said that the judgments of God are "true and just." The mystical writer T. S. Kepler (1838-1912) wrote, "The moral law can no more be broken than the law of gravity, it can only be illustrated." God alone was and is perfect in judgment. God alone can know our inmost thoughts and desires. God alone has that purity that can judge without prejudice. God alone has the wisdom to judge truly and the power to apply it.
