I don’t know how it is for you, but getting our family together for a photo is getting harder and harder to do, and there are only ten of us. That’s why I was amazed to read about 31,000 Chinese women who set a record for getting together and dancing the same way. According to the Guinness Book World Records, 31,697 Chinese women set the record for mass plaza dancing in multiple locations. The participants danced for more than five minutes in six different cities.
What a feat that must have been! That may have set a world record in our time, but I can tell you that it is small potatoes compared to a “record” yet to happen when believers, too numerous to count, will form a mass worship service in one location!
The Apostle John recorded this event long before it actually takes place. He saw people from every nation, tribe, and language worshiping God [Revelation 7.9]. With palm branches in hand, this vast group of people, along with angels, elders, and four living creatures will sing hymns of praise for the great salvation from the One who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.
I believe that will happen one day. It won’t be to set a record, but to offer the glory due His name [Revelation 7.12].
After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” Revelation 7.9-10
