Re:Verse reading–Revelation 7 (day four)
Reading chapter 7, you come away with a feeling of protection…shelter…tabernacle …provision. This is the antithesis of the feeling of judgment you get when the seals are broken. The difference is the target group. Chapter 7 deals with the people who have a relationship with God through the blood of the Lamb. The seal of protection is applied to God’s bond-servants…those who have been washed from their sin encircle the throne …springs of the water of life flow and God will wipe away their tears.
Protection and provision sound immensely better than wars and pestilence and death. How can we be sure that we are in the right group? It is the relationship with the Lamb…Jesus Christ! No wonder heaven celebrated that the Lamb was worthy to break the seals. Jesus is the only name given under heaven that can bring salvation. (Acts 4:12) Many have looked to others, but only the Lamb is worthy. Only the Lamb can give protection…shelter…tabernacle…provision. Eternity is a long time, choose wisely!
