Over 100 million!

According to the passage that I am about to quote, there are over 100 million angels around the throne of God, saying the following with a loud voice,

Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands saying with a loud voice… (Revelation 5.11).

Get out your calculator and do the math yourself.

10,000 x 10,000
100,000,000

Then John added that there were thousands of thousands on top of that number. A thousand thousand is one million. However, John said thousands of thousands. Thus, the number was beyond counting.

What is this huge number of angels doing? Picture this and hear this in your mind,

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,
And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
(Revelation 5.12)

What an experience that must have been for John! Focus upon what the angels focused upon, the Lamb of God, who is Jesus Christ. They ascribed to Him power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and blessing! Let us do the same with all our might.
