Daily Reading: Zechariah 4:1-5:11 ESV, Revelation 14:1-20 ESV, Psalm 142:1-7 ESV, Proverbs 30:21-23 ESV

Daily Verse: “And I heard a voice from heaven like the roar of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder. The voice I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps,” (Revelation 14:2 ESV)

PHONE (5456): “Through the idea of disclosure; a tone (articulate, bestial or artif.), most frequently “a voice.”[1]

Articulate bestial.

Many theories exist about the voice’s origin in today’s verse, but none conclusive.  However, the sounds coming from heaven carry a melodious tune of victory.  Living in God’s presence means experiencing eternal joy with the Creator.

People articulate similar joy when their football team gets a touchdown in the last seconds of the game, making a miraculous comeback.

Or when Richmond’s college basketball team won the title as my flight landed in their city.  Joyous noise erupted from the entire plane as the team scored the winning basket.

Joyful noise.

Angels’ chorus grows larger every day as God calls people home.  A spiritual mentor of mine gained her wings after a long battle with cancer.  Kim lived her life passionately for Jesus and discipled me with love and care.  Now reunited with her son, she sings joyfully from heaven.

Joy comes when we gain our spiritual address with God.

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”  (Revelation 21:4 ESV)

Accepting death as part of life allows us to enjoy the present moment in eternity.  No one knows when God will call them back home, but we do know the day will one day come.  Until then, we can live fully for Jesus, not wasting a moment.

Let the peace that surpasses all understanding rule your life as you submit to Jesus.  Sing joyfully with the heavenly choir, allowing God’s spirit to connect us with those who have moved into the spiritual realm.

No more tears in heaven, nor pain, for the former things no longer exist.  God wipes away our tears, with joy we sing.
