Connected To The Most Powerful Place In The Universe
Worship is the Central Theme of the Bible
There is no subject more important to God’s servants than worship.
Worship of God is the mark of true believers.
The worship of God is declared to be the content of the eternal Gospel.
True worship, of the true God, is truly the key to everything that matters.
Worship is no small subject. In this final word from God on worship, we hear declared the centrality of worship. The importance of worship we can infer from the rest of God’s Word; but here in Revelation, God makes it clear how central worship is to everything.
Now turn back to Revelation 14:6-7. Here we find the answer to the most vital question: “Who has eternal life?”
Rev. 14:6-7 Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— 7 saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”
Notice that the angel’s message is called “the eternal gospel.”
The Message of the Eternal Gospel
What is the eternal message? “Fear God, and give Him glory: and worship Him who made the heaven and the earth.”
Those who live forever are those who have responded to the Gospel. Those who respond to the Gospel become true worshippers of the true God.
At the end of everything, how does God summarize those who possess eternal life? God says that they “worship God”.
Worship God. That is the everlasting gospel, the message that God has given from eternity to eternity.
It is the theme of Scripture, the theme of eternity, the theme of redemptive history—to worship the true and living and glorious God.
Before the creation, after the creation, in eternity past, in eternity future, and throughout all time in between, worship is the theme, the central issue in all of creation.
