They Worshiped Him
Forever and Ever
Johns revelation reconnects the followers of Jesus with many images from the Scriptures:
The river of the water of life- Jesus discussed this with the woman at the well from John 4:7-15. Why did Jesus ask the woman for a drink before offering her “living water”? What is the lesson for each of us when it comes to being thirsty spiritually? Note that the river flowed from the throne of God and of the Lamb. What do you see in that image?
The tree of life was forbidden in Genesis, and because Adam and Eve ate of it, they were cast out of the Garden and God’s presence. The curse is lifted and we are returned to the perfection of God’s presence in Heaven. His servants will worship Him…why is the response to worship when we are in the presence of God?
Have we sometimes even made heaven a selfish place for us instead of a place of worship to God?
They will see His face, today we connected that statement to the statement of Paul in 1 Corinthians 13:12, what is the significance of seeing Him “face to face”? What had sin done to us when it comes to this kind of worship?
How does salvation restore the ability for us to see Him face to face?
Why will worship that lasts forever and ever be the fulfillment of who we are and were created to be?
John was so impressed by the vision that he wanted to worship the angel who shared it, but he commanded him to “worship God”. Why is this possible and needed now not just in heaven someday?
