Finally, the fourth and only other utterance of this cry in the New Testament makes its appearance. It is as if the entire record of Scripture has been building up to this moment. The LORD has finally brought justice to thousands of years of human rebellion and the heavenly multitude rejoices in His sovereignty. He has established His absolute authority over heaven and earth and hell. He has avenged every single believer who ever suffered for righteousness. He has forever secured His loved ones from their enemies and has eternally banished every kind of curse from His children.

ALLELUIA, FOR THE LORD GOD OMNIPOTENT REIGNS!
What a day that will be
