PRAISE THE LORD!

Revelation 19:1-6

Introduction:

1. This morning we are going to ¡§pick-up¡¨ where we left off on our Sunday Evening Series ¡§The End.¡¨ We have completed the study of the Tribulation and are to chapter 19 where we will find a worship service-taking place. I have heard many say that when they get to Heaven that they are going to be playing golf or fishing, but that is not what the Bible teaches. We find in Revelations several times what is going on in Heaven and that is the praising and worship of God. Now you may be thinking, ¡§Well that is Heaven and when I get there I will do that, but while I¡¦m here on earth it is different¡¨. What about the Lord¡¦s Prayer? ¡§Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your Kingdom come you will be done on earth as it is in heaven¡¨.

2. This morning I want us to look at the hallelujah¡¦s in Revelation 19:1-6. This is the only time you will find the word ¡§hallelujah¡¨ in the New Testament. The word ¡§Hallelu Yah¡¨ is actually an Old Testament word meaning ¡§Praise The Lord.¡¨ You will find the Psalmist beginning Psalm 146-150 with ¡§Hallelu Yah.¡¨

3. Let¡¦s look at what praise is and why these in Heaven will be praising God.

Revelation 19:1-2

1. Who: A great multitude [If you are a Christian, you will be a part of this multitude].

Why:

„« Salvation ¡V It is only because of God¡¦s gift of Salvation that we can have eternal life.

„« Glory ¡V Although man tries to take the glory here on earth, the glory is God¡¦s.

„« Power ¡V Only God is powerful enough to defeat Satan. Not one in here can defeat Satan on their own.
