Revelation 7 pt 11

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

Revelation 7:15  ‘Therefore, they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in His temple.’

We have explored the great multitude that will stand before the throne of God. They are the fulfilment of the promise that God made to Abram in Genesis 15:5. We also considered in previous posts that they have come out of the great tribulation and that they may indeed be a multitude of martyred souls.

 Revelation 7:14a   And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.’

Either way, these faithful souls will stand in the heavenly courts in the very presence of God himself. 

Revelation 7:15a  ‘…and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them.’

The road ahead holds difficult days indeed. We will be shaken to the very core by the immensity of the times. But yet God the blessed Father will greet us and embrace and cherish us with His divine presence.

Isaiah 4:5  ‘Then the Lord will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night over all the glory will be a canopy. It will be a shelter and a shade from the heat of the day and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain.’

Blessed days are ahead of us indeed!

  • Revelation 19:10 The Testimony of Jesus…
    One understanding of the testimony of Jesus is that he will return as the radiant King; and he will bring peace and righteousness to this earth when he establishes his kingdom and reigns from Jerusalem. 
  • Revelation 19:9 Invited
    The Church as a whole will be invited to the wedding as a corporate being but we will also be invited as individuals, by virtue of our personal salvation that we have received.For many of us who are not usually invited to high-society events and who are often left out and behind, this comes as a blessing indeed!
  • Revelation 19:7 Eager Anticipation
    In the same way, we are called to look forward to the day when we meet with Christ Jesus, on the day that he returns in power and glory. He is our blessed hope and our lives lived here on earth should be directed towards this coming moment. 
  • Revelation 19:7 A Wedding!
    I pray that we will live out our salvation with fear and trembling, and walk closely with our Lord, that we might walk with confidence and reassurance, knowing that we will be warmly welcomed and honoured as a guest, wearing the white robes of righteousness. 
  • Revelation 19:6 Hollering With Joy
    This side of glory, we pass through victories and defeats, as we march faithfully on. But even the most stoic and conservative amongst us might be forgiven here for ‘hollerin and a hooterin’ around the yard and throwing his hat up wildly in the air!
