A Short Study of Revelation 7:11-12

“And all the angels stood round about the throne…saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.”
(Revelation 7:11-12)

As the angels worshipped the Lord Jesus Christ, notice what the angels said concerning the gospel of Christ…sevenfold description of the gospel:

1) Blessing

Our Lord is blessed in Himself and is the source, fountain and spring of all spiritual blessings to others including angels and sinners (Psalm 103:1; Ephesians 1:3).

2) Glory

Our Saviour is the Lord of glory; all glory is due His name; all His works of creation, providence and salvation are glorious; (Romans 11:36; 1st Corinthians 1:30; Galatians 6:14).

3) Wisdom

In Christ are hid all the treasures of the wisdom of God; (Colossians 2:3); He is the only wise God our Saviour; (1st Timothy 1:17; Psalm 85:10).

4) Thanksgiving

“In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ concerning you.” (1st Thessalonians 5:18)

5) Honour

From all His creatures for He is their Creator (John 1:3); from all the sons of God, for Christ is the Author of salvation; from all His servants, for He is their Lord; (Acts 2:36; Philippians 2:7-9).

6) Power

All power in saving and preserving His people; (Matthew 28:18; John 17:2; 1st Peter 1:5).

7) Might

Sovereignty or strength; “He is mighty to save;” (Isaiah 63:1; Psalm 135:5).

All these things the Lord Jesus Christ is forever and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He will never be diminished in His glory and power, we say with the angels…AMEN!!!!

“For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.” (Romans 11:36)
