When [the Lamb] took the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell before the lamb…And they sing a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open its seals; Thou hast been slain, and hast redeemed to God, by Thy blood, out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation.
(Revelation 5:8-9)

In this chapter a beautiful scene opens up before us in heaven. That is where Christ is now seated. He once was here, where we still are, but He is here no longer. When the Lord Jesus was here in this scene, both Jews and Gentil.es cast Him out and nailed Him to the accursed tree. What a dreadful deed this was, revealing on the one hand, the wretched sinful heart of man, and on the other hand, the surpassing riches of the grace of God, for where sin abounded, grace over-abounded.
During this period while Christ is in heaven, God, by the gospel, is calling out men and women of all ages and walks of life, and from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation to be associated with Christ in heaven. This is unfolding before our eyes in a remarkable way, as we hear of souls being reached to the four corners of the world. This is happening amid political conflicts, opposition, and natural calamities, but the Spirit of God is not bound. Praise His Name!
What is it that draws people of such vast cultural differences together? Nothing else and nothing less than God’s chosen Lamb who once was slain. He by His precious blood has redeemed them to God. They will all sing one song, a new song that has never been sung before and will never end. It will only be sung by this large innumerable company that has been redeemed during the time of Christ’s rejection. This company will be associated with Christ as His Bride throughout the countless ages of eternity. We shall be privileged to join this singing that He leads.

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.


Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
(Galatians 6:1-2)

Exodus 11
