Revelation 4 v 11 - Memorising the Bible + Free Printables

I could never do it!

          Do what?

Memorize a chapter of one of the Books of the Bible!

          Yeah that's not so easy,  BUT  you can learn a verse of the Bible.

Let's look at a verse from the last book of the Bible.

Yes that book which many people avoid reading because they feel they will not understand it.


We don't have to understand everything the first time we read it and we might miss out on some very encouraging words 

if we don't read it. 

In this chapter 4 of the book of Revelation we have a great verse which encourages us to consider and remember that God is worthy of our praise and worship and everything else.

It's not a very long verse so let's be encouraged by that as well.

"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."

In memorizing this verse we will look at 4 things:
  • Memorising Tips
  • A Music Video of Revelation 4 v 11
  • A Bible Reading Video of Revelation 4 v 11
  • Some Freebies to help you.

Memorising Tips
If you read the Top 10 Ways to Learn Scripture you will see that I give 10 tips to help in this process but we don't have to use all 10 of them on each verse - just the ones that suit best with the verse.

For Revelation 4 v 11 I'm going to advise using tips 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 10

1.  Read the verse often, every day, multiple times in the day.

Leave a bookmark in your bible and every time you go past it grab the bible and open at the verse etc.  (you will pick up other ideas later in this post).

Reading and repeating somethings over and over is the natural way to get it into your head.

With this verse it is obvious to think of it in two parts

"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power:
for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."

2.  Write out the verse several times.

Why?  Because he action of  WRITING  helps us learn anything.

Write it out in two parts. 

So you are writing it in two halves just as reading it in the two halves as in no.1 above 

7.  Understand the meaning of the verse.

We will never memorize anything properly without having understood the meaning of it and knowing the meaning helps us remember the order of the parts of the verses.

The first part of the verse is a PROCLAMATION and ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of how God is worthy of glory, honour and power.

"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power:

Then the second part we notice starts with the word FOR and is the WHY or the REASON the Psalmist is making the proclamation which is because GOD is the great CREATOR.

for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."

8.  Make it easy to see the verse clearly and regularly each day.

In no.1 above I mentioned your bible and a bookmark


we cannot have our Bible at hand every moment of the day so if you feel you need frequent readings of the verse like pop-up reminders then do the following:

Get a post-it pad and write the verse out clearly on it then tear off the post-it and stick it on
  • the mirror you will use first thing each morning and last thing each night
  • the front cover of your Bible
  • the front cover of the book you are currently reading
  • the door of the fridge
  • the inside of the door of the cupboard where you go to get your favourite mug for that cup of coffee

9.  Make or use Bible Verse Graphics 

The picture of 1 John 3 v 1 near the start of this post is an example of a Bible Verse Graphic.

A picture with the words written on it clearly.

By making these yourself you will learn as you create them.


by using ones made for you that you keep close to hand like these I created below

I also post a bible verse graphic every morning on my
so if you want to be encouraged by a verse each day or have a graphic you can Share to your timeline or Save in Facebook then click through to my Facebook Page and be sure to like and follow the page to see those graphics in your feed each day.


by watching a short Bible Reading video like this one I created

or Word Search Puzzles

While completing a Bible Verse Word Search you will be spending time looking for the words and this also helps to learn the verse.

or Colouring Pages

While colouring in a Bible Verse Page you will be spending time around the words and this also helps to learn the verse.

or Phone Screensavers / Wallpaper

What better use of your phone - to keep that verse in front of you each time you go to check your messages.

For this you will need it to be a suitable portrait shape and size so most of the normal verse graphics you see will not suit.

I have a few verses made out for screen savers & you can download them from

finally my favourite way 
but it is not always possible to use this method

10.  Sing it.

It is well known that in singing a song you can easily learn the words of the song.

Fred & I have made several short videos of songs/choruses to help you memorize certain verses and you can watch the one for Revelation 4 v 11 below 


I've also prepared a playlist of Short Songs to memorize Scripture on YouTube:

Some More Freebies to help you.

Don't forget that many of my posts on the blog have bible verse graphics and I have many of these available as free downloads in my

Also that's where you will find the phone screen savers for some verses.

5 Best Quotes on the subject of


I am not a fan of QUOTES

In fact sometimes I get very annoyed at how people almost treat a quote
 as more important than the 
Word of God

I actually wrote a blog post about Do We Really Need This Quote?

However I do see that there are certain topics that there are some great quotes on from some very reliable people. This month of course we are thinking about "God is Worthy" so let's get encouraged with some quotes around this.

There are many quotes from so many people on the subject of how worthy God is but I prefer to only refer to or recommend ones from people who I trust as standing firm on the Word of God.

So in the list below I will quote

Not  Joel Osteen   but   Jerry Bridges

 Not  Lysa Terkeurst   but   Matt Pappa

Not  T.D. Jakes   but    J.C. Ryle

1.  Jerry Bridges

"God is worthy of my loving obedience because of who He is, not because of what He does."

2.  Matt Papa

Death, Guilt, Sin & The Saviour's Grace - A Dose of Encouragement

EASTER is just one of the items on the Church Calendar each year.

Or is it?

When we are young Easter may centre around those chocolate eggs and everything that seems to depict cuddly little yellow chicks.

When we are young Easter may centre around a family roast and little egg hunts.

When we are young Easter may centre around one of those twice a year visits to church.

When we are young and actively involved in church Easter may centre around pictures of an empty cross and tomb.

But what about now that we are older?

Are the chocolate eggs and yellow chicks forgotten?

Do we still get together as a family for that big meal?

Do we still go to church on Easter Sunday?

To some of those the answer may well be - YES?


Do we still focus our thoughts on the cross & the tomb?

Most of us will not have been able to grow up without hearing about the cross and the tomb but did we really pay attention to the  WHY?

The first "Why" I want to look at is the DEATH.

We know he died and his body was put into the tomb and then we know that the tomb was found empty but often our thoughts of Easter stop right there at the empty tomb and we forget to go on and see what it means for us.  What it has meant right from that resurrection day until now and will continue to mean for all of us for the rest of our lives and for eternity.

Jesus through His DEATH and RESURRECTION defeated DEATH forevermore.
He defeated DEATH for us the ones who deserved death as the punishment for our sins.
He defeated DEATH so that the fear of it would not have to hover over us and taint our lives.
He defeated DEATH so that the devil would not have that to use to control us.

The second "Why" I want to look at is the GUILT.

We know Christ died because people hated Him and would rather He be killed than someone who had already been found guilty of terrible crimes.  Jesus was the one who took Barabbas' guilt there and then that day as the people watched the truly guilty person walk away.  

Jesus through His death and resurrection also took our GUILT that day and we need to remember this.  We the guilty were replaced by the true innocent one, Jesus was and is the true, perfect sacrifice once and for ever for our sins. 

Jesus stepped into our place for us the GUILTY ones who deserve death as the punishment for our sins.
He wiped away our GUILT so that it would not have power over our minds. 
He took our GUILT on himself so that anguish, worry and stress would not destroy us.

The third "Why" I want to look at is the SIN.

We know Jesus was "without sin" from the following verses  

"For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."
2 Corinthians 5:21
"For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin."
Hebrews 4:15
"So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."
Hebrews 9:28
"Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:"
1 Peter 2:22 
"And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin."
1 John 3:5
Do we really believe that we are sinners?
Do we really believe that Jesus died for us?
Do we really believe that Jesus was a willing sacrifice?
Do we really believe that Jesus took on our sin?


If we really understand & believe that we are sinners.
If we really understand & believe that Jesus died for us.
If we really understand & believe that Jesus was a willing sacrifice.
If we really understand & believe that Jesus took on our sin.

We can trust that Jesus did this all to bring us into God's family.
We can trust that Jesus is the only Saviour of the world.

We can trust that the Saviour's grace to us is real.

So what is the grace of God?

people often say it is "undeserved favour" from God

but I would like to add a quote from John Piper here 

“Well, it appears that the word grace in Paul’s use not only refers to God’s character trait or disposition or inclination to treat people better than we deserve, but the word grace also refers to the action or the power or the influence or the force of this disposition, which produces real, practical outcomes in people’s lives, like being sufficient for good deeds or enduring the thorn in the flesh or working harder than everybody else, which Paul says about his own apostolic work.”

which directs us to the fact that the Grace of God is an active effect on our lives to change us.

We can understand the reason for cross, the punishment, and the Grace.


Remember the Death
Remember the Guilt
Remember the Sin

Remember the 

What a wonderful time is the celebration of Easter regardless of who we are, where we are, who we can see and what we can do.

To dwell in the knowledge that Jesus was the sacrifice for us and had the power to overcome death so that we do not have to carry the sin and guilt but instead we have experienced our Saviour’s Grace when we trusted in Him.


EASTER - An Acronym to Remind Us about the Meaning of Easter


What do you think of when you hear or see the word Easter?

You probably would include
Mary & Mary & Mary

Here is another way to:

remind us of Easter

what Easter should mean to us

how we can share the Love of God to others at Easter Time

who Easter is for

Let's consider an Acronym of the word 

1.  E is for Everyone

Romans 3 v 23:  For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

2. A is for Anyone

John 3 v 16:  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whosoever believes on His name shall be saved.

3. S is for Salvation

Acts 16 v 31:  Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.

4. T is for Today

Hebrews 13 v 8:  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever

5. E is for Everlasting Life

John 6 v 47:  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

6. R is for Resurrection

John 11 v 25:  Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life.

At Easter Time we learn exactly why we can have faith in God.

No-one has lived a perfect life except Jesus.
No-one is good enough to be in the presence of God.
But God still loves everyone so much that He provided a way for us to be with Him.
He sent Jesus to die for our sin, to be our Saviour.

Anyone means You, personally You, no matter who You are or what You have done.
Jesus died on the cross for You and He wants You to trust in Him and You will be saved.
This is a personal promise for You from the Saviour.

God wants us to trust in Him today and because He never changes He will forever keep His promises.
Jesus also never changes so today He is STILL the Saviour of the World.
He wants to be your personal Saviour.

On Easter Sunday we celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus, the day when Jesus rose from the dead and He is Alive forevermore.
Jesus is a living Saviour.

 is all about the fact that...
