“Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, ‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!'”
Notice the “forgotten” verse 3:
“Ye Gentile sinners, ne’er forget the wormwood and the gall;
Go, spread your trophies at His feet and crown Him Lord of all.”
God’s plan for eternity is to unite all people – all races, ethnicities, socio-economic groups, etc. – into one body, the church.
Let all of us, and heaven, too, “hail the power of Jesus’ name” and bow low before His throne!
“For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility… This mystery is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel … so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord …”
