Please read Revelation 7, 8, 9, and 10 today. What is your take-a-way today? Come on back and share an insight!
The “sealed” represents many things – another debate I’m not getting into! Let’s just stay faithful and close to Jesus, folks. Walk just as He walked (1 John 2:6 – still great advice!)
“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” Revelation 7:14 NKJV
We’re read about these people before, the ones described in Revelation 7:14-17. Do you remember these people from Daniel 12? I think it’s God’s desire to see this Scripture fulfilled in an entire generation, everyone to fill the earth with His glory. Let’s make it our mission to participate in this coming to pass!
“I went to the angel and said to him, ‘Give me the little book.’ And he said to me, “Take and eat it; and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.’ Then I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. But when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter” Revelation 10:9-10
I think its important to note the change: the book was sweet in John’s mouth, bitter in his stomach. I think this is how the truth can be if we don’t apply it correctly and share it with others: sweet at first, but bitter if we reject it OR sweet at first, but bitter if we try to keep it to ourselves.
