The Ultimate Celebration Of Worship
I. The Ultimate/FINAL Question
1. “Who is WORTHY….” [v 2]
2. The PROBLEM/ Heart of the challenge – none qualified. [v 3]
3. The GOOD NEWS – the ONLY ONE qualified. [v 5]
4. The seemingly contradictory titles – “the LION OF JUDAH” & “the LAMB”.
II. The HARP & GOLDEN BOWL of Incense
- Two items held by the 24 prostrating elders. [v 8]
- The INSEPARABLE CONNECTION between heaven & earth.
- Never underestimate your praise & prayers – individually & as a church.
III. The TOTAL & ULTIMATE – Praise Chorus in 3 WAVES
- The 1st Chorus [vv 8-10]: symbolizing ALL Nature & the TOTAL Church; what the LAMB has ACHIEVED
- The 2nd Chorus [vv 11-12]: symbolizing the TOTAL inhabitants in HEAVEN freely & joyously lifting their shouts of praise; what the LAMB has DESERVED
- The 3rd Chorus [v 13]: symbolizing TOTALITY – farthest, highest, deepest, widest ends/corners
- It is a NEW Song [v 9] – of quality, not time
- The unmistakable DIVINITY of Christ [v 13] – “blessing… honour…glory…power” belong to Him
- The Final DREAM of ALL CREATION…
