Thanksgiving Forever

Revelation 7:12  

Saying: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”

This scene of praise by the angels before God’s throne follows a proclamation by an innumerable multitude of forgiven humans who say: “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Revelation 7:10). By saying “Amen,” the angels agree to this, but add much more.

The Jamieson, Fausset and Brown Commentary notes that the angels’ “doxology is sevenfold, implying its totality and completeness.” God’s perfection, wonders and loving-kindness are worthy of all praise for all time.
