Sing Majesty

Isa 24:14 They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea.
Isa 24:15 Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.

Those who have heard the gospel of Jesus Christ and have received forgiveness of sins shall lift up their voice, and sing for the glory and majesty of the LORD. "Majesty, worship His Majesty, unto Jesus be all glory, honor and praise." We sing this now, but I believe the church will be remove before the tribulation. There will be people saved during the tribulation, including the 144,000 anointed from Israel. The LORD would choose these witnesses and anoint their minds by the Holy Spirit and the word of grace. They will be singing praises in the midst of tribulation.

Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

The sea, is used metaphorically, as the sea of humanity; they shall cry aloud, from the sea, and it can mean the lands bordering the sea.

Isa 24:16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

The LORD will be glorified by His people throughout the world, but the antichrist Beast, will persecute them. They will not be able to buy or sell and they would be hunted and killed. Many martyrs would come out of the tribulation.

Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

Suffering and persecution has always spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. May we in good times be faithful to him and witness to others.

1 Cor 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1 Cor 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Isa 24:17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.
Isa 24:18 And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.

The inhabitants of the earth, are those who would not receive Jesus as savior. These are the unredeemed. They will not be able to escape the judgment of God. Those in Christ are even now with him in heavenly places.

Eph 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
Eph 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

Isa 24:19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.
Isa 24:20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
Isa 24:21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

Isa 24:22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
Rev 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
Rev 6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
Rev 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
Rev 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

The hosts of the high ones that are on high, refers to the fallen angels. They will be locked in the bottomless pit with satan for a thousand years, at the coming of the King; the Lord Jesus Christ. God's good angels will return with the saints. They shall destroy the unrighteous and gather the children of faith.

Isa 24:23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

The powers on earth will be replaced with the power of God. The saints will rule and reign with the Lord.

2 Pet 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
2 Pet 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
2 Pet 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
2 Pet 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

Rev 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Rev 14:7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Jesus will reign and restore the earth to it's original design. As Adam and Eve lived almost a thousand years, we shall see the earth in it's restored beauty for a thousand years, before the New Jerusalem comes down. We live by faith and hope for his soon return. It is my hope that the Church will be caught up to meet Jesus before these times of tribulation come upon the earth. We shall miss the wrath of God and return with Jesus to a beautiful earth and then a glorious heaven. No time for self pity, we have too much to praise God for. Glorify him now exalt the Lord of Glory!
