Abide Together: Reflections on Revelation 7, 8 and 9
In Revelation 7, John records the part of the vision where it shows a great multitude from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ for the Salvation He alone can give. He also points at the end of all things, those who know Jesus will no longer hunger, thirst, or be beat down by the heat of the sun – for the Lamb (Jesus) in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life. Lord, thank You for being my shepherd, causing me to want for nothing. All I need is You.
In Revelation 8-9, the seventh seal is broken by Jesus and six of the seven trumpets are blown by angels. All of this points to the terrible judgment coming on the earth for sin. The thing that stands out to me the most is in verses 19 & 20 where it says that people did not repent. In spite of God showing HIS power and wrath against sin, they were still so arrogant and would not repent. LORD, keep me humble and keep me quick to repentance.
