Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
One of the notable lessons that comes out of final book in our Bibles is the mercy of God. It will continue to bear much fruit among a world that is facing the judgments of God for their unbelief. When the church is raptured, the world will face a seven-year period known as the time of Jacob’s trouble, the great tribulation. The final three-and-a-half years are portrayed for us in Revelation chapters 6-through-18.
Yet throughout the sad account of judgment, we read about the glorious grace of God that will continue to bring to Himself the souls of countless lives.
Today we have the privilege of inviting others to come to Jesus and find forgiveness for their sins and live a life with HIm. Take advantage of that privilege and talk to someone today about Jesus.
Seeking to compel them to come in!
