The arena was dimmed and we were singing with the band; songs of hope and joy. I kept looking below me to those whose seats were lower and virtually no one was sitting down, but all were on their feet to celebrate our King.
The song transitioned from one of faster pace to a hymn. One by one the instruments became still and the singers pulled away from their microphones. This is when I heard the voices of harmony lift as one to fill the entire arena with a sound of such beauty I have rarely heard.
I myself stopped singing and closed my eyes to block out visual stimuli. I only wanted to listen. I have never heard angels sing, but if I could imagine them, I was sure it would sound this beautiful. I kept my eyes closed and twisted my head from left to right trying to capture every essence of this music offered to heaven.
I imagined this sound to be unity. A mere shadow of what is coming. This arena had about 5500 people and I remembered the verse we had been sharing earlier….
Rev 19:6 Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
