Brainstorming Preliminary Paint Night Fundraising Party July 27th 2019! This event was very successful! We decided for the Paint Night Launch, Carynne is going to teach everyone how to paint a lighthouse! For the other pictures, we are going to make prints and sell them on a donation basis!

All in all, it was a very fun night and we will hopefully have many more!

Passover April 19th 2019: Last Supper Reenactment!

On April 19th, 2019 freshly after LTJ11 was told it was an official Church, we had a last supper reenactment based upon the Jewish Passover and the New Testament! Our script of the evening is below, along with pictures of the event!

You’re invited to a rendition of the Last Supper:

Hello to my close family and friends,

            On April 19th,  2019 at 5pm, you are invited to The Lighthouse Temple of Joseph’s first ever Passover Festival. You are not required to come, but if you do decide to come, please respect the Religious nature of the evening. There is no pressure to attend and I only want you to be here if you desire to be. If you would like to come, and would like to bring willing people, that would be great! Please RSVP by April 10th.

Traditionally, the first night of Passover is meant to be spent with close family and friends who share the faith. Hence why you are invited.  

            There are 7 festivals which are obligatory to celebrate. One of the most important in the Judeo-Christian Faith is the Passover, AKA the last supper. First, because Yeshua haMashiach (Jesus Christ) served as the Passover lamb for the forgiveness of sins so he could be raised on resurrection day to conquer death.  And second, traditionally, in the Jewish faith, the Passover was to celebrate the Exodus from Egypt and the escape of the 10 plagues which destroyed the idols of Egypt along with the abolition of slavery. Third, in the times to come, the Passover symbolizes the escape from the tribulations of Revelation, and a renewed covenant between God and the remnant.

 The festival is a way of honoring God and asking God to protect us from calamities in life. This is a very simplified version, but you get the idea.

            The Passover is not a new celebration, many Christians separated the night into two for Holy Thursday and Good Friday. For those who have celebrated those holidays, you will see the parallels between the traditional celebration Yeshua practiced and the contemporary holidays.

            In short, it’s like a dinner party with prayer involved.

            If you come, please bring this with you, and we will follow the description below.

An Explanation of the Night:

  1. Bringing the light to the world:

Two women volunteers light the two candles on the table, as we bless the light of the season by reciting together:

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us that we kindle the good day lights. Amen.

  • Sanctification of the Evening:

On the table will be 3 empty wine goblets, and one for each person.

The Eldest in the room pours everyone a cup of wine, and one of the 3 goblets at Elijah’s (John the Baptist’s) seat. Then we all extend our hands over the wine to bless it as we recite together:

Blessed are You, Our God, Ruler of the world, Creator of the fruit of the vine.

Blessed are You, Our God, Ruler of the world, You have chosen us from all peoples, exalting us and sanctifying us with your law. In Your love, Our God, You have given us feasts of gladness and seasons of joy; this festival of unleavened bread, season of our freedom, a holy commemoration, a reminder of the Exodus from Egypt. God, You have chosen us from all peoples, consecrating us to your service, giving us the Festivals, a time of gladness and joy.

Blessed are You, who sanctifies your people, and the Festivals.

Praise to You, Lord our God, Sovereign of the universe, for giving us life, for sustaining us, and for enabling us to reach this season. Amen.

We then drink the glass of wine at the same time until it is gone.  

Then, the youngest person pours everyone the second glass. But we do not drink yet.

  • Washing ourselves clean:

One Volunteer reads narration, one reads Peter, and another reads Yeshua:

Narrator: “John Chapter 13, verses 1 to 17- ‘It was just before the festival of Passover, and Yeshua knew that the time had come for him to pass from this world to the Father. Having loved his own people in the world, he loved them to the end. They were at supper, and the Adversary had already put the desire to betray him into the heart of Judas the son of Simon of Iscariot. Yeshua was aware that the Father had put everything in his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God. So, he rose from the table, removed his outer garments and wrapped a towel around his waist. Then he poured some water into a basin and began to wash the feet of the disciples and wipe them off with the towel wrapped around him. He came toPeter, who said to him:

Peter: “Lord! You are washing my feet?”

Yeshua: “You don’t understand yet what I am doing, but in time you will understand.”

Peter: “No! You will never wash my feet!”

Yeshua: “If I don’t wash you, you have no share with me.”

Peter: “Lord, not only my feet, but my hands and head too!”

Yeshua: “A man who has had a bath doesn’t need to wash, except his feet — his body is already clean. And you people are clean, but not all of you.”

 Narrator: He knew who was betraying him; this is why he said, ‘Not all of you are clean.’

 After he had washed their feet, taken back his clothes and returned to the table,

Yeshua: “Do you understand what I have done to you? You call me ‘Rabbi’ and ‘Lord,’ and you are right, because I am.  Now if I, the Lord and Rabbi, have washed your feet, you also should wash each other’s feet. For I have set you an example, so that you may do as I have done to you. Yes, indeed! I tell you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is an emissary greater than the one who sent him. If you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.”

Next, the Acting Servant, removes any outer clothing and ties towel around waist, then will go around and rinse everyone’s feet and dry them. Then, a bowl and a cup of water will be passed around, and everyone will rinse their hands and dry them. (If people want to volunteer to wash feet, that is accepted as well, it doesn’t have to be the group organizer. Volunteers are encouraged!)

  • Repentance through Tears: Parsley is then passed around and dipped into salt water to represent the bitter struggles of life and passed around to be eaten to represent freedom from those struggles.

First, parsley is handed out.

Second, we recite all together:

 Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who creates the fruit of the earth.

Third, a bowl of salt water is passed around and each person dips their parsley in and eats it.  

  • The Breaking of our Sin:

Then, three pieces of unleavened bread are blessed together by reciting with our hands extended:  

            Blessed are You, Lord our God, Sovereign of all, who brings forth bread from the earth

The Bread is then broken by a volunteer, the larger part is placed on Elijah’s (John the Baptist’s) plate, while the smaller parts are placed in the center.

The Bread is then broken by a volunteer, the larger part is placed on Elijah’s (John the Baptist’s) plate, while the smaller parts are placed in the center.

  • The Retelling of the Ancient Past: We then retell the Story of Exodus. Then we read together, a different person each paragraph:
  1. There arose in Egypt a Pharaoh who knew not of the good deeds that Joseph had done for that country. Thus, he enslaved God’s people and made their lives harsh through servitude and humiliation. Later, for atonement of the sins of the Children of God once they were freed into the dessert, God sent his son, Yeshua, to be the sacrificial lamb to free us from our sins. In the end of days, those who follow the commands to remember the Passover will have the Revelation calamities pass over them and become the remnant waiting for the second coming of Messiah under a new name. This is the basis for the Passover holiday which we commemorate with these different rituals tonight. Celebrating what was, what is, and what is to come, the everlasting unchanging God who is the beginning and the end.
    1. In the time of Moses, the Children of the living God were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt, and God brought them out with a strong hand and an outstretched arm. And if God had not brought our ancestors out of Egypt, then Yeshua the messiah would not have been able to come, and prophesy would not be fulfilled. The Jews and Gentiles would not be redeemed by the blood of the pascal lamb, and all salvation would be doomed. And, there would be no room for the messiah to come again. But prophesy is always fulfilled, thus, we are commanded to tell the story of the Exodus from Egypt.
    1. As Exodus Chapter 12 verse 21 to 28 reads:  Then Moses called for all the leaders of Israel and said, “Select and take lambs for your families, and slaughter the Passover lamb. Take a bunch of hyssop leaves and dip it in the blood which is in the basin, and smear it on the two sides and top of the door-frame. Then, none of you is to go out the door of his house until morning. For Adonai will pass through to kill the Egyptians; but when he sees the blood on the top and on the two sides, Adonai will pass over the door and will not allow the Slaughterer to enter your houses and kill you. You are to observe this as a law, you and your descendants forever. When you come to the land which Adonai will give you, as he has promised, you are to observe this ceremony. When your children ask you, ‘What do you mean by this ceremony?’ say, ‘It is the sacrifice of Adonai’s Passover, because Adonai passed over the houses of the people of Israel in Egypt, when he killed the Egyptians but spared our houses.’” The people of Israel bowed their heads and worshipped. Then the people of Israel went and did as Adonai had ordered Moses and Aaron.”
    1. Just as the Israelites used the blood of the lamb to pass the plague over them, believers in Yeshua were given the blood of the lamb as a sacrifice to pass over their sins. In the same token, those who respect Passover, will be redeemed in the end of days.
    1. As it states in Exodus chapter 13 verses 1 to 10: God spoke to Moses, saying, “Consecrate every firstborn to me— the first one to come from the womb among the Israelites, whether person or animal, is mine.” Moses said to the people, “Always remember this day. This is the day when you came out of Egypt from a house of slavery. God brought you out of here with a powerful hand. Don’t eat any raised bread. “You are leaving in the spring month of Abib. When God brings you into the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite, which he promised to your fathers to give you, a land lavish with milk and honey, you are to observe this service during this month: “You are to eat unraised bread for seven days; on the seventh day there is a festival celebration to God. “Only unraised bread is to be eaten for seven days. There is not to be a trace of anything fermented—no yeast anywhere. “Tell your child on that day: ‘This is because of what God did for me when I came out of Egypt.’ “The day of observance will be like a sign on your hand, a memorial between your eyes, and the teaching of God in your mouth. It was with a powerful hand that God brought you out of Egypt. Follow these instructions at the set time, year after year after year.
    1. Yeshua’s body became our unleavened bread, so at the end of days, we may be leavened to new life, promised the land of milk and honey.
    1. As it reads in Exodus chapter 13 verses 13 to 16: “Redeem every firstborn child among your sons. When the time comes and your son asks you, ‘What does this mean?’ you tell him, ‘God brought us out of Egypt, out of a house of slavery, with a powerful hand. When Pharaoh stubbornly refused to let us go, God killed every firstborn in Egypt, the firstborn of both humans and animals. That’s why I make a sacrifice for every first male birth from the womb to God and redeem every firstborn son.’ The observance functions like a sign on your hands or a symbol on the middle of your forehead: God brought us out of Egypt with a powerful hand.” For in the end of days God too will set a seal upon our hands and a seal upon our foreheads.
    1. This is to be fulfilled in the last days as stated in Revelation Chapter 7 verses 1 to 8: Immediately, I saw Four Angels standing at the four corners of earth, standing steady with a firm grip on the four winds so no wind would blow on earth or sea, not even rustle a tree.  Then I saw another Angel rising from where the sun rose, carrying the seal of the Living God. He thundered to the Four Angels assigned the task of hurting earth and sea, “Don’t hurt the earth! Don’t hurt the sea! Don’t so much as hurt a tree until I’ve sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads!” I heard the count of those who were sealed: 144,000! They were sealed out of every Tribe of Israel: 12,000 sealed from Judah, 12,000 from Reuben, 12,000 from Gad, 12,000 from Asher, 12,000 from Naphtali, 12,000 from Manasseh, 12,000 from Simeon, 12,000 from Levi, 12,000 from Issachar, 12,000 from Zebulun, 12,000 from Joseph, 12,000 sealed from Benjamin.”
    1. Just as Pharaoh sealed the hand of Joseph, thus does God seal the hand of his chosen people, by example in Genesis 41 verses 39 to 44 which reads: So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has shown you all this — there is no one as discerning and wise as you — you will be in charge of my household; all my people will be ruled by what you say. Only when I rule from my throne will I be greater than you.” Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Here, I place you in charge of the whole land of Egypt.” Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand, had him clothed in fine linen with a gold chain around his neck and had him ride in his second best chariot; and they cried before him, “Bow down!” Thus he placed him in charge of the whole land of Egypt. Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I, Pharaoh, decree that without your approval no one is to raise his hand or his foot in all the land of Egypt.” Joseph then fulfilled the prophecy of the blessing of Abraham to be the prince among his brothers, disappear for generations into Judah, to reemerge in the end of days as a tribe to serve King Judah as Prince once again for the Wedding Feast. Giving honor and glory to the pascal lamb, who raised again, and redeemed the nations.
    1. So we may never forget what Deuteronomy chapter 4 verse 9 commands us: Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.
    1. Thus, we must teach ourselves and our children, what was, what is, and what is to come.
    1. In the time of Moses, he begged for Pharaoh to let the people go:

Sing:

When Israel was in Egypt’s land,

Let my people go;

Oppressed so hard they could not stand,

Let my people go.

Go down, Moses,

Way down in Egypt’s land;

Tell old Pharaoh

To let my people go!

“Thus saith the Lord,” bold Moses said,

Let my people go;

“If not, I’ll smite your first-born dead,”

Let my people go.

No more shall they in bondage toil,

Let my people go;

Let them come out with Egypt’s spoil,

Let my people go.

  • But Pharaoh hardened his heart and refused to let God’s people go. That is why God sent the Ten Plagues to destroy the Ten idols of Egypt.

[For each Plague said, someone flicks wine onto a white plate, a different person for each flick:

  1. The Plague of Blood in the Nile River to destroy the idol Hapi, the bull-headed god ‘keeper of the Nile’ [Flick wine]
  2. The Plague of Frogs over Egypt to destroy the idol Heket, the Egyptian goddess of birth and fertility, depicted as a woman with the head of a frog. To destroy the alleged divinity of frogs. [Flick wine]
  3. The Plague of biting insects to destroy the idol Geb, the god of the earth, portrayed with the head of a snake [Flick wine]
  4. The Plague of flies to destroy the idol Khepri, Egyptian god of creation, movement of the Sun, and rebirth, depicted with the head of a fly [Flick wine]
  5. The Plague upon Cattle and Livestock to destroy the idol Hathor, Egyptian goddess of love and protection, depicted with the head of a cow [Flick wine]
  6. The Plague of boils to destroy the idol Isis, the Egyptian goddess of medicine [Flick wine]
  7. The Plague of Hailing Fire to destroy the idol Nut, Egyptian goddess of the Sky [Flick wine]
  8. The Plague of Locus to destroy the idol Seth, Egyptian god of storms and disorder [Flick wine]
  9. The Plague of Three days of Darkness to destroy the idol Ra, The Sun god [Flick wine]
  10. The Plague of the death of the First Born to destroy the idol Pharaoh who believed he was a god on Earth as the first born of Ra, and exploited that power [Flick wine]
    1. God destroyed these idols to prove to all the people of the Earth that they cannot rely on the works of their own hands but must come to rely on the one true living God. So to, will God come in the last days to come and destroy the seven idols which have ransacked the people of our time. As Revelation Chapter 16 professes:
  11. “The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, festering sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.” May the plague pass over us in ages to come, may we not be deceived by the evil one. [Flick wine]
  12. “The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.” May the plague pass over us in ages to come, may we not be deceived by the evil one. [Flick wine]
  13. “The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.” May the plague pass over us in ages to come, may we not be deceived by the evil one. [Flick wine]
  14. “The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.” May the plagues pass over us in ages to come, may we not be deceived by the evil one. [Flick wine]
  15. “The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in agony and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done.” May the plagues pass over us in ages to come, may we not be deceived by the evil one. [Flick wine]
  16. “The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are demonic spirits that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty. “Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.” May the plagues pas over us in ages to come, may we not be deceived by the evil one.  [Flick wine]
  17. “The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.” May the plagues pass over us in ages to come, may we not be deceived by the evil one. [Flick wine]
    1. Following the slaying of the first born, Pharaoh allowed the God’s people to leave. They left Egypt in such haste that their dough did not rise, so they ate unleavened bread. When Pharaoh changed his mind and chased after the Israelites, God miraculously caused the Red Sea to split, allowing the Israelites to cross safely. When the Egyptians entered the Sea, it returned to its natural state and the mighty Egyptian army drowned. God’s people were brought to the desert for 40 years, freed from slavery. Yeshua entered the desert and fasted 40 days and 40 nights and entered his ministry, to die as the first born to free us from the slavery of sin. In times to come, the remnant will made a church fitted for the Lamb and his Bride, who will bring the rest of God’s people to redemption and protect them from the plague. This is the meaning of the Passover Festival in ages past, in ages present, and ages to come.

We bless the second cup of wine:

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.

We drink the second cup of wine.

  • We wash our hands again with a blessing. We recite together:  

Blessed are You, Lord, our God, King of the Universe Who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us concerning washing of hands.

We pass around the washing bowl, and all rinse our hands.

  • Blessing of the Unleavened Bread:

Acting Servant reads: 1 Corinthians 5:6-8: “Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough? Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Yeshua, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Therefore, let us keep the Festival, not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” Let us unleven ourselves.

  • Passing of the Unlevened Bread: Pass around a small piece of the center plate of bread and everyone eat a piece together at the same time.
  1. Blessing of the Bitter Herb: We bless the Romain Lettuce together:

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who has sanctified us in His commandments and commanded us to eat bitter herbs.

            Then a Volunteer dips the lettuce symbolizing being bound in slavery into a mixture of apples, nuts, cinnamon and wine, which symbolizes strength through being bound. Then they hand it out to everyone, and we eat it together, to represent freedom.

  1. Blessing of the Passover Lamb: We all bless the lamb and dinner food by reciting

Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, at whose word all came to be

Eating dinner together: Everyone then puts the lamb on their plate. And picks someone to serve. And we serve each other one at a time.

Then we enjoy dinner 😊

  1. After Dinner blessing of the Bread. When Dinner is done:
    1. Read: While they were eating, Yeshua took a piece of unleavened bread, and made the blessing:

[Hold up the bread and pray] Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who sustains the entire world with goodness, grace, loving kindness, and compassion. He gives bread to all, for His grace is everlasting. And in His great goodness we have never lacked anything and we will never be deprived of food for the sake of His great name. For He is God who provides for all and does good for all and prepares food for all His creatures that He created. Blessed are You, Lord, who provides for all. God and God of our ancestors, may You remember us on this day of Passover to bless us with kindness and mercy for a life of peace and happiness. We pray that He who establishes peace in the heavens grant peace for us, for all Israel, and all of mankind, and let us say, Amen

Yeshua broke it, gave it to the disciples and said, “Take! Eat! This is my body! Which is being given for you; do this in memory of me. ” [Break the bread and Pass the Bread around]

  1. Blessing of the third cup:

 Yeshua he took a cup of wine, and blessed it:

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who creates the fruit of the vine. [Drink and pass the cup around]

Yeshua gave it to them, saying, “All of you, drink from it! For this is my blood, which ratifies the New Covenant, my blood shed on behalf of many, so that they may have their sins forgiven. I tell you, I will not drink this ‘fruit of the vine’ again until the day I drink new wine with you in my Father’s Kingdom.”

  1. Harboring Elijah in:

We pour a fourth cup for ourselves. But do not drink

Someone opens the door.

We recite together:  

Elijah the Prophet, may he come speedily to us in our days along with Messiah the son of David. John the Baptist, may he come speedily to us in our days along with Messiah Yeshua son of Judah.

  1. Singing Praises:

Now, using Youtube, we will play ten songs of praise to God to ward away the 10 plagues and complete the worship segment of the evening. Singing is encouraged, dancing is encouraged, instruments of all kinds are welcomed.

Listed are the songs title, the artist, and the youtube link (if you want to practice in advance)

  1. “From the Rising of the Sun (Psalm 113)” Sandra McCracken: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1C46KJaTmU&list=PL5zHXFI9lPgGeSmRFaFbWK5TXY9dOhgFR&index=1

Hallelujah, give praise, you servants

Praise the name of the LORD

Let the name of the LORD be blessed from now and forevermore

From the rising of the sun, to it’s going down

Let the name of the LORD be praised, from the rising of the sun

The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens,

Who is like the LORD our God? Who sits enthroned on high?

Who is like the LORD our God? Who stoops to behold,

The heavens and the earth?

From the rising of the sun, to it’s going down

Let the name of the LORD be praised, from the rising of the sun

When Israel out of Egypt came

From the land of foreign tongue

Judah became Gods sanctuary

And Israel, his people then

The see looked and fled

The Jordan turned aside

The mountain skipped

Like rams, like lambs

Why was it, oh sea

That you fled in fear, away?

And Jordan, that you turned aside?

Why mountains high, did you flee away?

Oh, why did you skip away like rams?

Why, oh you hills, did you flee away?

Oh, why did you skip away like lambs?

Tremble, oh earth, at the presence of the Lord

At the presence of the God of Israel

He who turned a rock into a water pool

The hardened rock into a spring

  • “Psalm 115”  Psalterium, Desert Springs Church

Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.

Why do the nations say, “Where is their God?” Our God is in heaven;  he does whatever pleases him. But their idols are silver and gold, made by human hands They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see. They have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but cannot smell. They have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but cannot walk, nor can they utter a sound with their throats. Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them.

All you Israelites, trust in the Lord– he is their help and shield. House of Aaron, trust in the Lord— he is their help and shield. You who fear him, trust in the Lord— he is their help and shield. The Lord remembers us and will bless us: He will bless his people Israel, he will bless the house of Aaron, he will bless those who fear the Lord— small and great alike. May the Lord cause you to flourish, both you and your children.

May you be blessed by the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. The highest heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth he has given to mankind.

It is not the dead who praise the Lord, those who go down to the place of silence; it is we who extol the Lord, both now and forevermore. Praise the Lord

I love the Lord, for He heard me

He heard my cry for mercy

Because He turned His ear to me

I will call on Him

The cords of death, they entangled me

The anguish of the grave was upon me

I was overcome by trouble and sorrow

Then I called on Your name

O, Lord, rescue me

O, Lord, rescue me

O, Lord, rescue me

Rescue me

Rescue me

The Lord is gracious and righteous

He is full of compassion

The Lord protects the simple hearted

When I was in need, He saved me

So be at rest once more, my soul

For the Lord’s been good to you

So be at rest once more, my soul

O, my soul

O, my soul

  • Revelation 5:6-10 Song “You are Worthy” by Esther Mui

And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.

Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying:

“You are worthy to take the scroll,

And to open its seals;

For You were slain,

And have redeemed us to God by Your blood

Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,

And have made us kings and priests to our God;

And we shall reign on the earth.

  1. “The Song of Moses, The Song of the Lamb (Revelation 15)”

And they were singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb: “Great and marvelous are your works, O Lord God, the Almighty. Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations.
