Rev 5:11-13 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice:
"Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,
And strength and honor and glory and blessing!"
And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying:
"Blessing and honor and glory and power
Be to Him who sits on the throne,
And to the Lamb, forever and ever!"
Let me start by explaining the Hebraic terms used in this song. The Achariyth Haya-Amiym
means in the Latter Days and Olam Haba is the Age to Come. These terms are found in the Old Testament and are associated with the coming of Messiah. Yeshua is Jesus's name in Hebrew and the word king is king in English. The Hebrew word for king is molech. Try singing the song's bridge and substitute the word molech for king and you'll see why I used the English word. So in English the bridge says "In the Latter Days, In the Age to Come. Jesus is King." Now I'm not a Hebrew scholar so the grammar and sentence structure may not be correct, but the message is true. A day is coming when the Lord will return and those who believe, those who have called on His name and trusted in Him for salvation, will meet Him face to face. They will be His bride and He the Bridegroom. The marriage banquet of the Lamb will be the glorious start of a the Olam Haba and it will happen "On That Day".
