Where Do You Get the Idea That There’s a Heavenly Ritual?
From the Bible. For example:
“And… there was a throne set in heaven… And the four living creatures… rested not day and night, saying: ‘Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and who is, and who is to come.’ And when those… creatures gave glory… to him that sits on the throne… the twenty-four ancients [‘priests’, what the Greek word means] fell down before him that sits on the throne… saying: ‘You are worthy, O Lord our God… because you have created all things…’” (Apocalypse [Revelation] 4:2a-b, 8a, c-9b, 10a, c-11b PDRC, brackets & highlighting added in scriptural quotes)
The “four living creatures” never stop “day and night” saying, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and who is, and who is to come…” to “him that sits on the throne…” What is that if not ritual?
And every time the “creatures gave glory” (which they never stop doing “day and night”!) the “twenty-four ancients [priests] fell down” and say, “You are worthy, O Lord our God… because you have created all things…” Again, the same thing is being said over & over again, in a kind of call-and-response --- what is this if not ritual?
You can’t deny it. Heaven has an Everlasting Ritual, praising God by doing so forever & ever!
