Continuing our study of Revelation 14.
Revelation 14:1 ‘Then I looked and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps.’
Commentators tend to wrestle over whether this Mount Zion is on earth or in heaven. It could be either. The verse goes on to tell us though that the 144,000 had been redeemed from the earth and this would suggest to me that this Mount Zion here is still in heaven, getting ready to come to earth.
There are times when the writer should put his pen back down on the table, and just delight in these superb verses; that capture the gentle beauty and the awesome power, that describe a worship that simply goes beyond words.
Thank you for reading this. Lo aprecio.
