And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire–and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands. And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations! Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.” (Revelation 15:2-4 ESV)
Moses and Jesus have a common song. You can join in with Jesus and Moses who praise their God or stand aloof!
Jesus while on earth had a God. When Jesus goes to heaven he still has the same God. Jesus’ God is YHWH Almighty! Let Jesus’ God be your God too!
