Revelation 7:(2-8)9-17

【Rev 7:2】Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: 

【Rev 7:3】“Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” 

【Rev 7:4】Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel. 

【Rev 7:5】From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben 12,000, from the tribe of Gad 12,000,

【Rev 7:9】After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 

【Rev 7:10】And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” 

【Rev 7:11】All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 

【Rev 7:12】saying: “Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!” 

【Rev 7:13】Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?” 

【Rev 7:14】I answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 

【Rev 7:15】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 shelter them with his presence. 

【Rev 7:16】‘Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat down on them,’ [ Isaiah 49:10 ] nor any scorching heat. 

【Rev 7:17】For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’ [ Isaiah 49:10 ] ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’ [ Isaiah 25:8 ] ” 

1 John 3:1-3

【1Jn 3:1】See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 

【1Jn 3:2】Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, [ Or when it is made known ] we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 

【1Jn 3:3】All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure. 

Matthew 5:1-12

【Mat 5:1】Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him,

Sermon 
Prayer 

Spend some time in prayer with our Heavenly Father. He asks us to pray, to talk with Him. Like a father and his child. Bring to Him your problems and your difficult situations. Bring to Him your hopes and desires. Praise Him and give Him thanks for all He’s done. 

Share your life with Him, 

because He loves you.

Go in peace and serve the Lord!
