“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 15:3-4)
What an awesome day that will be when all the saints who have won the victory over the beast will raise their voices together and sing the Song of God’s servant, Moses, and the Song of the Lamb. It appears these are two songs with with a common theme. They show the unity of the old Covenant and the New Covenant in redemption. The Song of Moses, I believe, alludes to Exodus 15:1-19, where Moses thanks God for deliverance from the Egyptians at the Red Sea.
Place yourself in history for a moment. Consider first of all the Israelites, standing on the shore of the Red Sea, with the pursuing Egyptians vanquished by the mighty hand of God. The blood of the Passover Lamb has spared the Israelites divine retribution. The power of the one true and living God has delivered them from bondage. They pause and raise their voices in the Song of Moses: “I will sing to the Lord, for He is highly exalted… (Ex. 15:1-2).
Now, we see in John’s first-century vision, all the overcomers standing in the very presence of God singing the song of Moses. But they will also be singing the Song of the Lamb because, just as they know that the blood of the Passover Lamb in Egypt spared and redeemed them, the blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God, spared and redeemed Jewish and Gentile believers alike from the consequences and bondage of their sins. Jesus, by His precious blood, cleansed them from all unrighteousness, washing their robes white.
Oh, yes! What an awesome day that will be when you and l, victorious in Christ, together with all the saints will be singing God’s praises in great thanksgiving for all He has done!
