Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 19:1-5 is about Heaven Exults over Babylon

Revelation 19:4
19:4  And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, "Amen! Alleluia!"

The twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped God, saying 'Alleluia'. They are the twelve apostles of the first rain and the twelve apostles of the last rain. They refer to the servant or the priest of God who has the ministry and worship to God, starting from now on up to the throne of heaven.

The four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, saying 'Alleluia'. Who are the four creatures? They are four personas who had been lifted up to the heaven. They are as follows:

  1. Enoch.
    Genesis 5:24
    5:24 And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.

    Proverbs 3:32
    3:32  For the perverse person is an abomination to the LORD, But His secret counsel is with the upright.

    The fact found within walking with God is honesty. It starts from the honesty about God or the true teaching Word up to honesty in all things.

  2. Moses.
    Deuteronomy 34:5-6
    34:5 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD. 
    34:6 And He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth Peor; but no one knows his grave to this day.

    Moses died according to the Word of God. It means that he lived according to the Word of God. The matter of living and death of Moses is according to the Word. He lived in the righteousness until he died, rose, and ascended to heaven.

  3. Elijah.
    2 Kings 2:11
    2:11  Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

    The fact found within going up to heaven with horses of fire is being faithful and fervent in ministry until the end line.

    Romans 12:11
    12:11  not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;


  4. Jesus.
    Philippians 2:8-9
    2:8  And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
    2:9  Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,

    Jesus died on the cross, rose, and ascended to heaven.

Thus, the four living creatures refer to the servant of God who is faithful, fervent, honest and obedient until he can fall down in front of God with saying 'Alleluia' at the throne of heaven
.

Revelation 1:17
1:17  And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, "Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.

God will lay His right hand upon us. The results are as follows:

  1. The right hand of God will uphold our faith.
    Isaiah 41:8-10
    41:8  "But you, Israel, are My servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, The descendants of Abraham My friend. 
    41:9  You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, And called from its farthest regions, And said to you, 'You are My servant, I have chosen you and have not cast you away: 
    41:10  Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'

    We are not afraid, doubtful, sad, disappointed in facing anything, but we believe and hope to God. We feel peaceful; everything becomes easy and light.

    The hands of God will fight instead of us to finish all impossible problems.

    Exodus 15:4-6
    15:4 Pharaoh's chariots and his army He has cast into the sea; His chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea. 
    15:5 The depths have covered them; They sank to the bottom like a stone. 
    15:6 "Your right hand, O LORD, has become glorious in power; Your right hand, O LORD, has dashed the enemy in pieces.


  2. The right hand of God is able to make us as the shining stars.
    Revelation 1:16
    1:16  He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.

    We become the servant of God who serves to Him with the light of holiness and testimony. So, we illuminate the people who live in darkness and they may be saved by God. We become the shining star that never dies until the end line.

    If we serve without the light of testimony or the life renewal, we will be devoured by the darkness of world or sins. We become the fallen star.

    2 Corinthians 8:2-5
    8:2  that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded in the riches of their liberality.
    8:3  For I bear witness that according to their ability, yes, and beyond their ability, they were freely willing, 
    8:4  imploring us with much urgency that we would receive the gift and the fellowship of the ministering to the saints.
    8:5  And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God.

    We can give to others who are in need until we give all our life to God.


  3. The right hand of God lifts us up in due time.
    Psalms 118:16
    118:16  The right hand of the LORD is exalted; The right hand of the LORD does valiantly.

    1 Peter 5:6
    5:6  Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,

    The hands of God change us from the carnal man to the spiritual one, namely obedience until the flesh does not speak anymore or the veil is ripped or the perfect obedience.

    2 Corinthians 10:6
    10:6  and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

    When Jesus comes a second time, the dead will be raised and the lived will be changed. We become one perfect body of Christ with saying 'Alleluia'.

God blesses us.
