“Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!” Revelation 7:12
04/21/09 I love the book of Revelation! It is absolutely LOADED with images of God’s glory. The word “glory” is “doxa” in the Greek. It means opinion, judgment, view. This verse is saying that God’s opinion – God’s judgment – God’s view is what matters – FOREVER! The Greek word for wisdom is “sofia”. It means broad knowledge of very diverse matters, supreme intelligence. The Lord knows everything! There is nothing that can take Him by surprise. This verse is a statement of worship. It’s a great verse to memorize and recite when you really don’t feel like praising. As you realize that God has the right to judge and that His wisdom is supreme and unsurpassed, the praise and worship will naturally begin to pour out.
