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 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.
