Hallelujah! l Revelation 19:1-10 l Part 29

QUOTE

“Worship is to feel in your heart and express in some appropriate manner a humbling but delightful sense of admiring awe and astonished wonder and overwhelming love in the presence of the most ancient Mystery, that majesty which philosophers call the First Cause, but which we call Our Father in Heaven.”

A. W. Tozer

Questions for the Heart and Spirit

  1. What words do you use to express your thanksgiving and appreciation to God for what He has done, is doing, and will do for you?  Do you express your appreciation often?  Do you do it regularly or just on special occasions?
  2. We have completed the “judgment of the earth” section of Revelation.  Now that you have seen what God saves us from, do you have a greater motivation to express your appreciation to God?  In other words, has the study in Revelation affected you? If it has affected you, how has or will it change your life because of this study?
  3. What will you be wearing to the wedding?  (The one in Rev 19:9)  Or, are you even invited?  How do you know?

Questions for the mind

  1. READ:  Rev 19:1-6; Ps 106:1; Ps 135:1; Ps 146:1;147:1; 148:1; 149:1; 150:1 - What exactly does Hallelujah mean?  (Consult your Bible dictionary)  Are you aware that it is only used in the NT in Revelation 19?  How is it used in Rev 19? What are the words used in the Psalm references, which have the same essential meaning?
  2. READ:  2 Cor 11:2-3; Is 54:5-8; Hos 2:19-20; Is 62:4; Eph 5:25-27; Rev 19:7-8; Rev 3:5 - Who is the bride?  Why is she wearing white linen?  Is that why brides wear white in modern weddings?   Are Jews and Christians included in the wedding feast?  Why or why not?
  3. READ:  Ex 19:19; 2 Sam 22:4; Ps 18:13; Rev 4:5;8:5; 10:3-4; 16:18; 19:6 - What is the source of the thunder?  What does the thunder represent? Is there any relationship between the thunder in these passages and the thunder we here during storms?  Why or why not?

Application

  1. Examine Rev 19:10, by defining each word using Vines dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, or other similar source.  Write a paraphrase of the verse in your own words and share it.  Did this clarify the meaning of the verse?
  2. Reread Rev 6:9-11.  Has this question been answered, and do you think those that were under the altar are among those celebrating in Rev 19:1-10?  Why might these celebrants be so enthusiastic?  Can we say Hallelujah?
