A couple of weekends ago I attended the Breakforth Conference in Edmonton.  Grace Revolution, a band from Calgary, was leading worship.   We sang a number of songs before they led us in the Revelation Song. 

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come
With all creation I sing praise to the King of kings
You are my everything and I will adore You”

The crowd, already energized by corporate worship, came alive.  I looked around, taking in the moment; the band focused not on entertaining but intent on genuine worship, hundreds of people arms stretched out to God, spot lights shining like rays of coloured sunshine, and brilliant white lights beaming down.  The Spirit was like a tangible thing that filled the air, bounced off the walls, and settled on the crowd.

David Nasser reminded us that as amazing as this worship experience might be, it can’t come close to worship in Heaven.  The book of Revelation, the last book of the Bible, paints a picture of what worship in Heaven is like. 

“Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand.  They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders.  In a loud voice they were saying:  ‘Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!’  Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, all that is in them, saying: ‘To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power for ever and ever!”  Revelation 5:11-13 (NIV)

Imagine!  Take the most amazing worship experience you’ve ever had.  Add to that, the voices of ten thousand times ten thousand angels joined together in a chorus of, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty...”  Revelation 4:8

Close your eyes and hold that amazing image in surround sound; angels voices singing praises to our God, radiant light, vibrant colour, overwhelming joy, blessed peace.  All for the worship of God.

Listen to the Revelation Song now.  Then worship the Lord Almighty.
