|There are three
|Whoever these people
are, they are saved, for the attribute salvation to God and to the Lamb. My own view is that they are saved by
grace, since they attribute it to the Lamb.
|The next passage
quoted (out of order) has a wonderful point to it. It says in the English that God will
“spread his tent” over them. There is
a play on words in the Greek; or
perhaps a textual error; it can be
taken to have (in the play on words) the meaning of spreading his Shekinah,
his glory, over them. A marvelous
thought, to be protected by the glory of God.
|Finally, there is
the seven fold amen. Seven is the
number of completeness; it is the
number of the spirits of God -- and these seven attributes of God are truly
worthy of praise. If there is one
thing which Revelation teaches, it is that God is worthy of our praise.
