The Old Testament in the Book of Revelation (Revelation 19:6–10)

This entry is part 51 of 58 in the series Revelation and Its Connections to the OT

Passage Summary

John heard a great multitude (probably angels) loudly and climactically praise God for establishing His reign over the harlot (Rev 19:6; cf. chs. 17–18). God was also to be honored in light of the coming marriage of the church to Christ (Rev 19:7)—it was the Father who brought it about that the Bride would adorn herself with righteous deeds and be properly clothed for her wedding (Rev 19:8). John was then commanded by the angel to describe those who would be present for the marriage supper as blessed, and the angel affirmed the truth of these words (Rev 19:9). John then attempted to worship the angel but was sharply rebuked (Rev 19:10a). The angel reminded John that he was simply a messenger of the testimony of Jesus, just as John was through revelation given to him by the Spirit of prophecy (Rev 19:b; cf. 1:10; 4:2; 17:3; 21:10).

A Parting Thought

We worship God and Him alone for the righteousness that He grants us in Christ and the righteous deeds that He enables us to do. May we praise Him for the righteousness we have now and for the full experience of righteousness in time to come!
