Ever presumed you were on an invitation list, only to have a very unpleasant surprise when the party begins? Join me for a look at Revelation 7, where the heavenly banquet includes people from all sorts of people and tribes - but is missing one from Israel!
Music Today - Andrew Peterson, 'Is He Worthy?'Kristina and I first heard this song performed by Peterson in concert at Grove City before the paint was even dry - he had just written it and forgot some of the words as he went along. Now hundreds of thousands of people sing it by heart - and draw great hope from it! I think it's one of the finest worship songs of the past 20 years, and it's rooted in Revelation 5 and 7.
