Book of Revelation Theme of Awe and Amazement Quotes

Revelation is full of astonished, awestruck folks. First, there's John who can't believe he's meeting Jesus live and in person—not to mention God, the angels, the armies of Heaven, a seven-headed Dragon… well, you get the idea. Then there's everyone else who head over heels admires and reveres God and his every holy move. Though it's clear that everyone is totally in love with the Big Guy, there's also probably a little good old fashioned awe-inspiring fear in there. Hey, you watch a deity unleash plagues of destruction and tell us you wouldn't be shaking in your boots.
