Reason to Sing.

Revelation is one of the books of the bible that when you hear the title you grit your teeth.
Its popular among Christians and non- Christians and it carries the title of " hell fire and brimstone" you know, the book of "judgment"
well..... let me share a quick thought with you friends.

Revelation 4:3-11

"The one sitting on the throne was as brilliant as gemstones—like jasper and carnelian. And the glow of an emerald circled his throne like a rainbow. 4 Twenty-four thrones surrounded him, and twenty-four elders sat on them. They were all clothed in white and had gold crowns on their heads. 5 From the throne came flashes of lightning and the rumble of thunder. And in front of the throne were seven torches with burning flames. This is the sevenfold Spirit of God. 6 In front of the throne was a shiny sea of glass, sparkling like crystal.

In the center and around the throne were four living beings, each covered with eyes, front and back. 7 The first of these living beings was like a lion; the second was like an ox; the third had a human face; and the fourth was like an eagle in flight. 8 Each of these living beings had six wings, and their wings were covered all over with eyes, inside and out. Day after day and night after night they keep on saying,

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty—
the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.”

9 Whenever the living beings give glory and honor and thanks to the one sitting on the throne (the one who lives forever and ever), 10 the twenty-four elders fall down and worship the one sitting on the throne (the one who lives forever and ever). And they lay their crowns before the throne and say,

11 “You are worthy, O Lord our God,
to receive glory and honor and power.
For you created all things,
and they exist because you created what you pleased.”

Day and night, forever eternity.
A song of praise is to God.
Holy holy holy is the Lord God almighty.
constant worship and praise.
This big beast rejoicing because of God and His beauty.

My mind can't comprehend

but what it can.. today is..
We should want to be apart of this song.
Do you know what God has done for you ?
-given His son to give you life
- seeked you out to save you
- He wants you to be apart of His will.
This big, masterful, all knowing God wants you to be apart of His works.
What if you are the future landscaper of the new heavens and earth
what if you get to help build the most beautiful waterfall?
What if you are the one giving high fives at the gate?

Do you understand that God said we are a new creation?
You and I had crimson stains....
scars from a past...
that sex and other people left,,,
family members tore into us....
hurt and pain and loss..
we all have wounds...
and Jesus made them white as snow.
You are brand new.
New today to lift your head, breathe in deep, and start fresh.

This is a book of praise to a God who makes us white as snow, praise to God who was..
and is to come...
He is eternal..
so when pain hurts for a short time...
joy will last forever.

I want to join this song.

God is good.
I don't feel the need to make this real deep or artisy
just real
from my heart.

Sing with me
for that......... is a reason........... to sing.....
