The Worthiness of the Almighty

The church I have been attending begins with praise and worship. The team will start with a couple of songs then leave while the Pastor does his sermon, and then the worship team will come back up and sing a few more songs. For today though, there was a moment that felt special to me. One of the beginning of the service songs was a shorter version named “You are Worthy of it All.” I had first heard this song back in 2018 at Abundant Life Church one October night from a special ministry who came and played that song. If you listen to the verses in the full version, it is based on chapter 4 in the book of Revelation when John has his vision in heaven and sees the supernatural kingdom of God. He sees the throne room with God being the light. Near are the twenty-four elders and four beast worshipping the Almighty God. As well, in his visions, there are also tens of thousands of angels and the multitude of the saints later in the book. But as we zoom in to this chapter in the end, the elders had casted their crowns down for the worthiness and mighty of God in both Revelation and following of this song. It states, “the twenty-four elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever. They cast their crowns before the throne, saying, “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” (Revelation 4:10-11, ESV).
When the sermon was over and the worship team was about to close to begin the communion, the pastor got up and ask the worship to sing again, “You Are Worthy of It All”. While we were repeating this song again, the Holy Spirit was in the atmosphere of the building, and I kept on picturing “the throne room of God.” The power, pure-holiness, and worthiness of God is impossible to comprehend. If the worthiness of God had made the elders casted down their crowns to Him, and then when John had fallen down like he was “dead” in another verse in the presence of Jesus right to His feet (Revelation 1:17). Something familiar happened to Paul before when he was Saul attacking Christians. When he had his encounter in Damascus, he was “blinded” by the worthiness of Jesus while he said “Why are you crucifying me.” Just imagine what will happen when we see Jesus in the future when we go up to the throne whether we pass to go to heaven or if the Rapture calls us up to His presence in the throne room. Do you picture Jesus every day with His power and glory and honor? Do you cast down your “everything” to Him and focus on Him? It is interesting if you think about it that before the crucifixion and resurrection that both John and the rest of the disciples saw Jesus everyday as a human. They saw him eat, drink, walk, and get tired just like a normal human. Yet, John saw Jesus again after the crucifixion in his vision and it was too powerful of the worthiness of God. As for us, there are a few that will think about Jesus but do not picture the awe of Him, and then pass on through the rest of the week. But there is more than that in the power of Jesus and seeing Him face-to-face. Because He is worthy of it all!
