“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
04/22/09 The praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength mentioned in this verse belongs to God. The word for God used here is “Theos”. It refers specifically to the Trinity. Our proclamations of praise and worship glorify the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. And those praises belong to the Trinity forever and ever. The “forever and ever” part of this verse is really incredible. The same word (aion) is used for both terms, which means for ever, an unbroken age, perpetuity of time, eternity. In essence, this translates as “forever and forever” or “for eternity”. Isn’t this just the coolest verse of scripture. If praises belong to the Trinity for eternity, wouldn’t that be a verse to support the idea that we will be praising God when we get to heaven? How will you praise Him?
