Correct. Keep up the good work!
"And I saw, as it were, a sea of glass mixed with fire, and
those who had
come off victorious from the beast and from his image and from the number of his
name, standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of God." Revelation 15:2
Satan had tried (through the two beasts) to get everyone to worship the beast and
his image and to be marked with the mark of the beast...Satan failed to get
everyone. Those who had come off victorious from the beast and from his
image were now to receive their reward (as we read earlier, these are the
victorious who were sealed with the name of God and the Lamb).
In the midst of persecution and false teaching,
what a great comfort this must have been to those
who were remaining faithful to God...and to those
whose loved ones had lost their lives because of
their witness to Jesus Christ.
The sea of glass before the throne of God and
who were victorious were standing on the sea of
glass. This appears to be the same
identical picture that we see in the previous scene
in Revelation 4:6 and Revelation chapter 7:
before the throne there was, as it were, a sea of
glass like crystal; and in the center and around the
throne, four living creatures full of eyes in front
and behind. Revelation 4:6 (NAS)
After these things I looked,
and behold, a great multitude, which no one could
count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples
and tongues, standing before the throne and before
the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches
were in their hands; Revelation 7:9 (NAS)
The sea of glass is mixed with fire:
Revelation 15:2 says that the sea of glass was
mixed with fire.
victorious are standing on the sea of glass:
Those that were
victorious (those who did not worship the beast and the image of the beast,
and did not receive the mark of the beast on their foreheads or hands) were seen
by John in the vision standing on the sea of glass
before the throne of God and the Lamb.
The victorious sing:
"And they sang the song of Moses the bond-servant of God and
the song of the Lamb, saying, "Great and marvelous are Thy works, O Lord God,
the Almighty; Righteous and true are Thy ways, Thou King of the nations.
Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Thy name? For Thou alone art holy;
for all the nations will come and worship before Thee, for Thy righteous acts
have been revealed." Revelation 15:2-4 (NAS)
Seven angels and seven bowls:
After these things I looked, and the temple of the tabernacle
of testimony in heaven was opened, and the seven angels who had the seven
plagues came out of the temple, clothed in linen, clean and bright, and girded
around their breasts with golden girdles. And one of the four living
creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God,
who lives forever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the
glory of God and from His power; and no one was able to enter the temple until
the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished" Revelation
