 Good Morning! Yesterday just got away from me big time and I did not get to post what the Lord has been teaching me this week. 

As you  know I am studying “Revelation” with Beth Moore. She is an amazing teacher and breaks this down nicely. This week we are on Chapter 7.

Here we find out that all nations, tribes and peoples, tongues who have given their lives to Christ bare the “Seal” with the mark of God on their foreheads, that the 144,000 is remnant nation of Israel and the numbers are literal or symbolic. We find that they are giving thanks, honor, power and might be to our God. We find who will be standing after the great tribulation and that God will wipe away every tear from our eyes.

Revelations 9:3-4 And out of the smoke locusts came down upon the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. 4They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.

When are lives are given to Jesus Christ we bare the seal of God that only the spirit world can see. Just like the mark of the beast. God knows right now which mark we carry. 

2 Corinthians 1:22 “set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come”

It is amazing to me to read Ch 7 and know that God is yet again giving us ONE MORE CHANCE to repent and follow him. To not indure His wrath and yet some still will not accept Him. To know that WE, who are SEALED will not have to go through this wrath makes everything in our lives worth it.

2 Timothy 2:19 “Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.”

Revelations 14:1 Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.”

God promises He will come back for us and we know by our “SEAL” that we are His and oneday we will have ALL of our tears wipe away and will be happy with God forever.

Ephesians 1:13-14 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory”

 This brings great comfort to know that all that I endure on earth is not in vain but for God’s glory and praise.

Serving With Joy,

Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
