…..they were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. Revelation 14:3
I just love this verse. God is giving those who have been saved out of the Great Tribulation, who were called out to minister to Israel, a new song all their own. That is something! What they go through will be a future event, and they are called from the twelve tribes of Israel.
Now, you might think, ” How would they know that? ” Most likely, DNA. A lot has not taken place, there is not yet a third temple, which would be where the Al Aksa mosque is now, whether a peace treaty is what allows it, appears to be the likely choice as a strike on Iran could be imminent.
They are sealed in Revelation 7, the angels are told not to allow anything else to happen until they are sealed. These men are virgins, and martyrs, the last being first and first last, they are the firstfruits and follow Christ on Mt. Zion. He is no longer the Lamb that was slain, but victorious, and you will also notice that the tribe of Dan is still missing, as from the Old Testament, replaced by Benjamin.
They are sealed, as we are with the Spirit, they bear the name of Jesus, and the Father, could it be YHVH, Yahweh? He and the Father are one and have so many names, but the Spirit is the seal and a guarantee on us, what is to come. The Antichrist always attempts to copy God, and will also use a mark.
But here we see them learning a new song just for them, are they taught by angels or Jesus, Himself, He rejoices over us with singing and quiets us with His love. Zechariah 3:17 – Isn’t it wonderful, of course, He is, and it is another name. How wonderful He gives them their own song and like this mystery, He also gives us our own unique gifts, some are for now, others, perhaps even later.
Whether singers or not we can praise Him anyway and just watch what He does as we continue in His Word and His love, you may or may not be familiar with the gifts of tongues or prophesy, but there are tongues for the edification of the church and for personal renewal and refreshing, and prophetic words are also for individuals and groups, the body of Christ as a whole. There are those gifted to sing in the Spirit. He has many gifts for us, and will show us as we study.
We may even get to sing our own song, with Him.
