Is this the peak moment in music history?

“The kingdom of the world has become
    the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah,
    and he will reign for ever and ever.” – Revelation 11:15

Imagine for the moment what is the definitive musical work in history on Jesus Christ.

Then what bit of music in the history of our planet is revered more than the Hallelujah Chorus in Handel’s Messiah.

One of the most beautiful moments in the history of music is the moment when the choir sings out “the kingdom of this world …”, and then as if with a drawn out pause adds “… is become …”, and then with another drawn out pause belts out “the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ and of His Christ”.  Listen here at 1:29 to 1:49 mark;

This one tiny moment in music says it all.  The kingdom of this world will not be thrown away and burned up so to say, but will be transformed somehow into the Kingdom of God and Christ!

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

We at WakeUPchurch.org will unpack this earth shattering reality in all its wonder and glory!
