We celebrated the Lord’s Supper tonight at church, remembering the Lord Jesus’ saving death that brings us life, the blood of the Lamb that makes us white. We looked at the picture John’s Revelation gives us of what it will be like when we’re gathered around the Lord in the new creation. It is mighty that it is our God who holds salvation – for it is He who sits on the throne!
13Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?” 14I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
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.
16They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore;
the sun shall not strike them,
nor any scorching heat.
17For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd,
and he will guide them to springs of living water,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
Rev 7. 9-17
