All Servants Of Jehovah

“Behold, bless Jehovah, all servants of Jehovah; who stand in the house of Jehovah at night. Lift up your hands in the holy place, and bless Jehovah. May Jehovah bless you out of Zion, He who made the heavens and earth” (Psalm 134:1-3).

All servants of Jehovah may stand in the house of Jehovah and lift up their hands in the holy place by virtue of the atoning blood and imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ alone. They are blessed out of Zion on the sole grounds of their Great High Priest’s propitiating blood and everlasting righteousness.

“John to the seven assemblies in Asia: Grace to you, and peace, from the One who is, and who was, and who is coming, and from the seven spirits which are before His throne; even from Jesus Christ the Faithful Witness, the First-born out of the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him loving us and washing us from our sins by His blood, and made us kings and priests to God, even His Father. To Him is the glory and the might forever and ever. Amen” (Revelation 1:4-6).

“And I saw, and behold, in the midst of the throne, and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, was a Lamb standing, as having been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, having been sent out into all the earth. And He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him sitting on the throne. And when He took the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one having harps, and golden bowls full of incenses, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sing a new song, saying, Worthy are You to receive the scroll, and to open its seals, because You were slain, and by Your blood purchased us to God out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign over the earth” (Revelation 5:6-10).

“And I saw thrones, and they sat on them. And judgment was given to them, and the souls of the ones having been beheaded because of the witness of Jesus, and because of the Word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast nor its image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand. And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one having part in the first resurrection. The second death has no authority over these, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with Him a thousand years” (Revelation 20:4-6).

Every single person that Jesus Christ died for and was resurrected for will without fail take part in the first resurrection; the second death has no authority over them.

“But when this corruptible shall put on incorruption, and this mortal shall put on immortality, then will take place the Word that has been written, Death was swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your sting? Hades, where is your victory? Now the sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the Law; but thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” (1 Corinthians 15:54-57; cf. Romans 4:23-25).
