Verses 1-8

Revelation 15:3 “And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God” Comments - Moses could have carried many titles and accolades. He was well educated in the schools of Egypt. He was an author and a great leader, but his greatest lay in the power of God that worked in his life. The greatest men of God are recognized as servants and not necessarily as leaders.

Deuteronomy 34:5, “So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.”

Joshua 1:1, “Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying,”

Revelation 15:3-4 Comments The Song of Moses - Another song of Moses in recorded in Deuteronomy 32:0.

Revelation 15:6 Comments - Note how these seven angels are dressed like Jesus Christ was dressed in Revelation 1:13

Revelation 15:8 Comments - The description of the Temple in Heaven in Revelation 15:8 is similar to the one given in 2 Chronicles 7:1-2 when the glory of God filled Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem.

2 Chronicles 7:1-2, “Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house.” And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD'S house.”
