THE SEVENTH SEAL IS OPENED REVEALING SEVEN ANGELS WITH SEVEN TRUMPETS John saw the Lamb open the seventh seal. And then he saw the seven angels who stand before God, each given a trumpet. A silence fell over heaven in anticipation of the sounding of the trumpets. Then, the angels stood with their trumpets, each

THE LORD WILL WIPE AWAY EVERY TEAR There was a pause after the opening of the 6th seal. And John saw a great multitude join with the four living creatures and the 24 elders in worshiping the Lord. One of the elders asked John whether he knew who they were and from where they had

UNTIL EVERY TRIBE, TONGUE, PEOPLE AND NATION HAS HEARD In John’s Revelation of Jesus Christ, he was caught up into heaven’s throne room, where he witnessed the Lamb of God being worshiped.

‘And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”’ (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

WHAT TRUE WORSHIP SOUNDS LIKE The apostle John saw and heard the worship of heaven in God’s throne room. His report was very similar to the prophet Isaiah’s, who had also been given a vision of the same scene (See Isa. 6). They both reported the sight and sound of the six-winged creatures there. Yet,

‘Then Amos answered, and said to Amaziah: “I was no prophet, Nor was I a son of a prophet, But I was a sheepbreeder And a tender of sycamore fruit. Then the Lord took me as I followed the flock, And the Lord said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to My people Israel.’”‘ (Amos 7:14-15 NKJV).

WHERE HAS GOD SENT YOU? When Amaziah, the priest at Bethel, heard the prophetic words of judgment that Amos pronounced against King Jeroboam and the Northern kingdom of Israel, he told him to flee to Judah to be a prophet and never again prophesy in Bethel. He also warned King Jeroboam of Amos’ words. But

“If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with You, that You may be feared” (Psalm 130:3-4 NKJV).

WHO CAN STAND BEFORE A HOLY GOD? The psalmist asked a rhetorical question of the Lord, that begs an answer from each of us. “If the Lord kept record of all our sins, our impure thoughts, motives and actions, if He decided to judge us according to that record, who could stand and be declared

“Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life” (Revelation 2:10b NKJV).

WILL YOU BE FAITHFUL UNTIL DEATH? The Lord Jesus dictated letters to be sent to the seven churches in Asia Minor via the apostle John. In His letter to the church of Smyrna, Jesus warned them of an upcoming time of suffering and tribulation. He called them to “be faithful until death,” reminding them that

“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten” (Joel 2:25 NKJV).

December 9, 2020

CHRIST RESTORES THE LOST YEARS WHEN WE REPENT The prophet Joel prophesied of a day when the Lord would judge the sins of Israel with an army of locusts that would devour all their crops, vines, and fruit trees. Even the buds would be eaten, so that the harvest would be affected for years. Yet,

“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life” (Jude 1:20-21 NKJV).

A BEAUTIFUL TRINITARIAN INSTRUCTION Jude gave this beautiful trinitarian instruction to believers, in contrast, to his warning against those who were creating divisions in the church. Notice his instruction begins with “But you, beloved.” He was talking to those who have the Spirit. Not those troublemakers who did not have the Spirit, evidenced by their
