The multitude in white!

Scripture reading for December 8th: Revelation 7, Psalm 95, Proverbs 28

Revelation 7:9-12, 14 “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 be to our God forever and ever! Amen!” . . .“And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.””

Heaven will be populated by people from every tribe, tongue and nation because God is Maker of them all! Jesus instructed the apostles and all who would believe on Him to go into all the world and preach the good news to every creature. As the Gospel age comes to a close, the Church on earth will undergo severe persecution and the martyrdom of many believers through the ‘Antichrist and his rebels. The ‘great tribulation’ will be marked by martyrs. But John sees these martyrs, now in heaven, clothed in white and singing around the throne! Their song rejoices in their salvation and attributes all honor and glory to the One on the Throne and to the Lamb, Who provided the blood to clothe them in white! Their worship resounds through all of heaven as they await the fullness of salvation.

Psalm 95:6-7 “O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand.”

Prayer: Father God and Jesus our Lamb, we worship You and bow down in reverence and honor for the great salvation You have provided and announced to the entire world. Thank You for saving people from all nations and tongues. Thank You for providing us ‘robes of white’ through Jesus’ righteousness! Thank You for the privilege of worshiping you throughout eternity as members of Your forever Flock!

Proverbs 28:17-18 “If one is burdened with the blood of another, he will be a fugitive until death; let no one help him. Whoever walks in integrity will be delivered, but he who is crooked in his ways will suddenly fall.”

The multitude in White!

Scripture reading for December 9th: Nehemiah 7-9, Psalm 140, Revelation 7

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.””

John’s attention was taken up next by a great multitude of white-clothed people from every nation and people group of earth. Their garments had been made white by the blood of the Lamb through faith. These were standing around the throne surrounding the multitudes of angels, the elders and the four living creatures. They were declaring the infinite worth of the One seated on the throne and the Lamb from Whom came salvation. The angels, elders, and living creatures prostrated themselves in agreement and worshiped the eternal God of Heaven, declaring His worth in eternal praise!

Psalm 140:12-13 “I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and will execute justice for the needy. Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your Name; the upright shall dwell in Your presence.”

Faith confession and prayer: Lord Jesus, I declare You alone are the source of salvation and are eternally worthy of praise and honor. I look forward to dwelling in Your presence and worshiping You for all eternity with the white-robed throngs of heaven brought in from every nation!

Nehemiah 8:6 “And Ezra blessed the Lord, the great God, and all the people answered, “Amen, Amen,” lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads ad worshiped the Lord with their faces to the ground.”

Our God is Worthy!

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!
