A New Song Before the Throne

As I come to Your Word, Lord, help me to see what You want to teach me today. Amen

"They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no on could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. (Revelation 14:3)

As we continue looking at the 144,000 in heaven with the Lamb, they present us with several questions to ask ourselves today. First, we see they are singular in their praise. Others have been blending their voices in choruses of praise to the Lamb, but these 144,000 sing a new song that is unique to them. Because of their own special experience, they have a song no one else can sing. Each of us who knows Jesus has our own song, for He is uniquely special to every person. Does it make your heart sing to be in the presence of the Lamb?

These are people who are spiritually undefiled (v. 4). They are true to the Lamb. Are you spiritually pure? Do you have an undefiled love for the Lord Jesus?

They are steadfast in their purpose, following the Lamb wherever He goes (v.4). Does your life reflect an unwavering loyalty to Christ?

They are sincere in their profession (v. 5). They have lived for the Lord without hypocrisy during the darkest days the world has ever known. They know the truth, believe the truth, tell the truth, speak the truth, and live the truth. Are you words going to condemn you or justify you?

Because of all these qualities, these 144,000 will have a powerful testimony for the Lord Jesus Christ. And we know that millions upon millions will come to Christ during the Great Tribulation as a result of their dedicated witness (Revelation 7:9). Do people see qualities in your life that would make them want to follow the Lamb?
