Virgins for the Lamb!
Scripture reading for December 18th: Revelation 14, Psalm 131-32, Proverbs 5
Key Scriptures: Revelation 14:2-5 “And I heard a voice from heaven like the roar of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder. The voice I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps, and they were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been redeemed from mankind as first-fruits for God and the Lamb, for they are blameless.”
John heard a multitude in heaven, 144,000, singing around heaven’s throne. They sang a new song which no one but them could learn. These are those redeemed from earth who had been fully devoted to the Lamb Christ Jesus. They had followed the Lamb and sought His righteousness therefore they were considered blameless and were in God’s presence singing in worship and adoration. They represent the full number of dedicated saints of all times.
Faith Confession: I look forward to being among this number one day. Lord, help me to fully follow Jesus and live a blameless life through Your grace through Christ’s blood and to learn the new song of the redeemed!
Proverbs 5:20-21 “Why should you be intoxicated, my son, with a forbidden woman and embrace the bosom of an adulteress? For a man’s ways are before the eyes of the Lord, and He ponders all his paths.”
