Astonishingly, it took Handel only twenty-four days to write the orchestral music for the Messiah oratorio—today perhaps the world’s most famous musical composition, one performed thousands of times every year around the world. The magnificent work reaches its climax nearly two hours after it begins with the most famous part of the oratorio, the “Hallelujah Chorus.”

As the trumpets and timpani announce the beginning of the chorus, voices layer on top of each other as the choir sings the words of Revelation 11:15: “And he shall reign for ever and ever.” It is a triumphant declaration of the hope of eternity in heaven with Jesus.

Many of the words in Messiah come from the book of Revelation, the apostle John’s account of a vision he had near the end of his life describing events culminating with the return of Christ. In Revelation, John returns again and again to the theme of the return of the resurrected Jesus to earth—when there will be great rejoicing with the sound of choirs (Revelation 19:1–8). The world will rejoice because Jesus will have defeated the powers of darkness and death and established a kingdom of peace.

One day, all the people of heaven will sing together in a magnificent choir proclaiming the majesty of Jesus and the blessing of His forever reign (Revelation 7:9). Until then, we live, work, pray, and wait in hope.

Perhaps the world's most famous musical composition one performed thousands of times every year around the world the magnificent work reaches its climax nearly 2 hours after it begins with the most famous part of the oratorio. The hallelujah chorus as the trumpets and timpani announce the beginning of the chorus voices layer on top of each other as the choir sings the words of Revelation 1115 and he shall reign for ever and ever.

It's a triumphant declaration of the hope of eternity in heaven with Jesus. Many of the words in the Messiah come from the book of Revelation, the apostle John's account of the vision he had near the end of his life describing events culminating with the return of Christ in Revelation.

John returned again and again to the theme of the return of the resurrected Jesus to earth when there would be great rejoicing with the sound of choirs. The world will rejoice because Jesus will have defeated the powers of darkness and death established a kingdom of peace one day. All the people of heaven will sing together in a magnificent choir proclaiming the majesty of Jesus and the blessing of his for ever rain until then, we live, work, pray and wait and hope today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Revelation chapter 11 verses 15 through 18, the seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said the kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah and he will reign for ever and ever. And the 24 elders who were seated on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying, we give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the one who is and who was because you have taken your great power and begun to rain, the nations were angry, and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your people fear your name, both great and small, and for destroying those who destroy the earth. Let's pray for. Thank you for the assurance that you will reign for ever and ever. We lose heart, remind us of this and fill us with your peace. Thank you God it's in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
