Praise and Glory

A heart and the word amen in cursive, followed by "praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Revelation 7:12" followed by another cursive amen and another heart
"Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!" ~Revelation 7:12

You can hear the excitement in the "voice" of John as he writes. By using the word "and" over and over, it expresses an exuberance of someone who can't get the words in fast enough. "Mom, we saw turtles and butterflies and toads and snakes and frogs and dragonflies!" (or just picture Will Ferrell in Elf lol!) The technical definition indicates that each word "gets its own moment of emphasis and adds its own weight". In biblical Greek, when there is a list of words, it starts with the most important. But when the writer uses this repeating "and", each word is just as heavy - how can it not when praising God!

This takes me to the refrains of two songs - all glorifying Jesus Christ

Death could not hold You
The veil tore before You
You silenced the boast of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring the praise of Your glory
For You are raised to life again
You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever, God You reign
Yours is the kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the name above all names
It's all God's children singin'
"Glory, glory, hallelujah"
"He reigns, he reigns"
It's all God's children singin'
"Glory, glory, hallelujah"
"He reigns, he reigns"
Have a blessed day!
