Perhaps this is where their music is heard, to accompany the worshipful singing of the , as they sing a new song , unique to them. And they sang as it were a new song before the throne : In Revelation , the , have their feet firmly planted on an earthly Mount Zion. Yet their praise takes them right to the presence of God, right before the throne. In our praise and worship, we really can transport ourselves and be heard in heavenly places.
To receive the mercy for which we praise God for is something; but to be wholly clothed with praise to God for the mercy received is far more. Why, praise is heaven, and heaven is praise! To pray is heaven below, but praise is the essence of heaven above. When you bow in adoration, you are at your very highest.
You must learn here the notes of free grace and dying love; and when you have mastered their melody, you will be able to offer to the Lord the tribute of a grateful heart, even in heaven, and blend it with the harmonies eternal. These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.
And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God. For they are virgins : Many take the virginity of the , as simply a symbol of their general purity as in 2 Corinthians Nevertheless, Paul recommended celibacy in distressing times 1 Corinthians , and Jesus spoke of woes upon those with children and families in that day Matthew Commonly the term virgins is applied to women, not men.
So does the use of virgins here mean that all the , are women?

Not at all, according to the great Greek scholar A. If the term virgins is a picture of purity in general, it reinforces the connection of the , with Israel. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes : These , are of Jewish heritage Revelation Yet they are also clearly believers in Jesus, otherwise they would not stand with the Lamb, follow the Lamb wherever He goes , and could not be without fault before the throne of God. Each of the vast multitude saved during the Tribulation will be saved in exactly the same manner as anyone today: by grace, through a personal faith in Jesus Christ unto salvation.
Revelation describes an innumerable company saved out of the Great Tribulation, and these , described as firstfruits , may be used to preach the gospel to those who will be saved in this period. Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth : This other angel preaches the gospel, but also announces judgment the hour of His judgment has come.
King James Version (KJV)
Some today like to identify their ministry or technology with this angel flying in the midst of heaven. The desire to connect contemporary technology or events with this angel is nothing new. Fear God and give glory to Him : This is what the angel will tell the whole world to do.
They can do this and give glory to God and worship Him willingly in this life, or be compelled to give glory to Him later. It is certain that one day all will give glory to God. Isaiah Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? Psalm He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.
13. Surah Ar Ra'ad (The Thunder)
Psalm He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow. Jeremiah When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures. John The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Psalm Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. Daniel But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;. Matthew And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? Amos Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name:.
Amos And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:. Exodus And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:. Deuteronomy He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;.

The Four Horsemen and their Seals
Christian Standard Bible He is here: the one who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals his thoughts to man, the one who makes the dawn out of darkness and strides on the heights of the earth. Contemporary English Version I created the mountains and the wind. I let humans know what I am thinking. I bring darkness at dawn and step over hills. Good News Translation God is the one who made the mountains and created the winds. His triumphs will be due to his skilful diplomacy. Like Antiochus Epiphanes, his prototype, he "will come in peaceably , and obtain the Kingdom by flatteries.
As the "Tool of Satan" he will be endowed with wonder working powers, and when he comes, he will find the world ready to receive him, for God will send upon its inhabitants a " strong delusion " that they will believe a LIE, or " THE LIE ," for that is what he will be. This Covenant will probably be the privilege to return to Palestine and rebuild the Temple and re-establish their sacrificial form of worship, and national existence, in exchange for the financial assistance of the Jewish bankers of the world in his schemes of establishing world wide commerce, and the formation of a gigantic corporation, with its commercial centre in the rebuilt city of Babylon, so that no one can buy or sell unless they have his " MARK ," the "Mark of the Beast," Rev.
His rise to power and the rebuilding of Babylon will take time, so the Rapture of the Church will doubtless antedate the beginning of the WEEK by some years.
