Christ. His Name is ‘the Name above all other names’. He is ‘the King of
kings and Lord of lords’(Philippians two:9-11 Revelation 19:16). Study
the words – ‘all nations get in touch with Him blessed’(17) – , and believe of Christ.
‘From each and every tribe and language and persons and nation’, God’s persons have
been redeemed by the valuable blood of Christ (Revelation five:9). Study
the words -‘May His glory fill the entire earth!’(19) – and believe of
Christ. In the ‘new heaven and new earth’, ‘the holy city’ will shine
with ‘the glory of God’. ‘Its radiance’, ‘like a really valuable jewel’,

God’(17). In an age when so lots of show no interest in worshipping God, we

is not to finish the moment we leave the spot of worship. We are to inform
other individuals what the Lord ‘has done’ for us – ‘O magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt His Name with each other!’(28 34:three).
