“And they sang a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. And has made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” Revelation 5:9-10
This “new song” is not one that we learn. Rather, it is the result of our submission to the dealings of the Lord, and it is a testimony of what we have become – “kings and priests.”
The “twenty four elders” represent the Old Testament overcomers. The “four living creatures” represent the four sides of spiritual maturity, the New Testament overcomer. They are singing – “and has made us.” This song is the result of the “processing” that takes place during our life time, which leads to our being chosen as an overcomer.
