Today's reading: Revelation 19

Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunderpeals, crying out, "Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns." Revelation 19: 6 NRSV

What a loud noise!

The voice of a great multitude. Think of a cheering football stadium!

The sound of many waters. Imagine the sound of a mighty waterfall.

The sound of mighty thunderpeals. Remember the noise of a particularly fierce storm.

Now put all these together: cheering football fans, roaring waterfall, rumbling thunder. What a noise that would make! And to imagine all of those sounds combing to praise God and give God the glory!

Noise to our ears. Music to God's ears.

Take at least one moment today to call out in a loud voice to God:  "Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns."
