6 Then I heard something like the voice of a vast multitude, like the sound of cascading waters, and like the rumbling of loud thunder, saying, Hallelujah, because our Lord God, the Almighty, reigns!
Vast multitude reveals that there were so many angels that their voices together sounded like a huge waterfall which also echoed thunder showing their great power. God’s praises were heard throughout His kingdom.
7 Let us be glad, rejoice, and give him glory, because the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his bride has prepared herself.
The marriage of the Lamb refers to the gathering of all believers since the beginning of time to be with Christ.
The word Bride means that the believers are under Jesus Christ who is the one that takes care of them and supplies all their needs.
It also refers to the Great Banquet that will take place with all the saints in heaven with Jesus (Luke 14:15-24).
8 She was given fine linen to wear, bright and pure. For the fine linen represents the righteous acts of the saints.
The fine linen to wear, bright and pure refers to those who have been washed by the blood of the Lamb, who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ, having their sins forgiven.
The righteous acts of the saints refer to the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who worked through them to accomplish God’s will.
For it is God who is working in you both to will and to work according to his good purpose.
9 Then he said to me, “Write: Blessed are those invited to the marriage feast of the Lamb!” He also said to me, “These words of God are true.”
The word Blessed in Greek means to be happy, someone who desires to have what the blessed have, to be envied. Strong’s Gr. 3107
Those who have and those who will put their trust in Jesus Christ are blessed because they will rest from all the turmoil and tribulations that they went through on earth. They will also be safe from the Lake of Fire prepared for Satan, his fallen angels, and those who have rejected Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
“These words of God are true.” God’s Word can be trusted 100% in accuracy and reliability. If anyone tells you otherwise, that message has not come from the Holy Spirit but is demonic in nature.
10 Then I fell at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers and sisters who hold firmly to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, because the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
The angel that was showing John all these great visions was so magnificent in appearance that for a moment John lost sight of God’s Word to only worship God and fell at the angel’s feet to worship him. But, the angel quickly reminded John that no angel is to be worshipped but God alone.
Angels and humans are alike, in the sense of servitude, to only worship the Lord Jesus Christ who created all of us.
