Scripture reading for December 9th: Revelation 7, Psalm 117-18, Proverbs 29
Key Scriptures: Revelation 7:9-12 “After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God Who sits on the throne and to the Lamb!” And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen!””
As John beheld the glory of God and the Lamb, he saw a great multitude of people from every tribe, tongue, and nation assembled in white robes and shouting praise to God and the Lamb for their salvation! This caused a domino effect as the angels, elders, and living creatures joined in the shout of blessing to the great God of heaven and earth! Amazingly, this was going on then and is now and will for eternity!
Faith Confession: I look forward to joining the throng around the throne of God in worship of the Lamb and in thanks for His great salvation. It is my prayer that none of my family or friends will miss out! Help me to pray Lord!
Psalm 117:1-2 “Praise the Lord, all nations! Extol Him, all peoples! For great is His steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord!”

Key Scriptures: Revelation 5:13-14 “And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To Him Who sits on the Throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” And the four living creatures said “Amen!” and the elders fell down and worshiped.”
As John is viewing the throne of God and activities around it, He saw a”Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, . .” This “Lamb” took the scroll which no one could open and a chorus broke open of the twenty-four elders as they sang a new song of worship to the Lamb. Then all of heaven and earth joined in resounding choruses of praise to Lamb Who had been slain to purchase people for God from every tribe and nation. Hallelujah now and forever!
Faith Confession: I am thankful for Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, who purchased me from bondage to sin and made me a priest and part of His glorious kingdom. Worthy is the Lamb to receive all praise and worship!
