Revelation 7 pt 9

Continuing our study of Revelation 7 and the great multitude before the throne.

Revelation 7:10  And they cried out in a loud voice: salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne and to the Lamb.’

Salvation comes from God. 

We might be very clever indeed and assess that we are not so bad after all, that our sins are only minor and that we mean well.

But yet it is not for us to determine our spiritual condition. 

God sits upon the throne and He determines and judges men. 

Romans 3:22a  ‘There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God….’

Our future looked bleak! But yet Romans 3:22 continues:

Romans 3:22  …and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.’

The great multitude, dressed in their white robes of salvation,  stand before God who is seated upon the throne and for ever and a day we will give thanks for this salvation that we did not deserve but that has been achieved by the Lamb upon the cross.

Salvation indeed belongs to our God!

For my previous posts:

  • Revelation 11 pt 4
    The different expressions for the same period of time would also show that they are actual measurements of time that are not to be spiritualised into something of our own making. This period of time will actually happen. It will be the final three-and-a-half years before Christ Jesus returns in power and glory!
  • Revelation 11 pt 3
    The building of the Third Temple and the beginning of the daily sacrifice will bring such joy to many of the people of Israel. The treachery of the end-time beast and his desecration of the temple will be the final straw that will weaken the pride of Israel and prepare them in brokenness to receive Christ Jesus as their Messiah when he returns in power and glory. 
  • Revelation 11 pt 2
    A Third Temple must be built and the sacrifices and grain offerings to commence, so that the end-time beast can arise, bring a halt to the daily sacrifice and desecrate the temple in order to fulfil prophecies of both Jesus and Daniel.
  • Revelation 11 pt 1
    There has always been a great expectation that a Third Temple will be built although there are clear challenges to hurdle, not least the opposition of other world religions that hold political control over the Temple Mount. Political wrestling goes on regarding the future development of the Temple and the will and expectation grows more acutely with every passing year. 
  • A Prayer For Afghanistan
    May a spirit of praise and worship be lifted up amongst the hearts of Christians in Afghanistan, even though the praise may need to be covert and sung under their breath, may it be joyous and contagious.
