The Sealing

In Revelation 7, John sees four angels standing at four corners of the earth holding back the wind. Another angel came bringing the seal of the living God and stated that they would put a seal on the forehead of God’s servants. Those with a seal on their forehead would be spared.

Then John sees a great multitude in white robes holding palm branches standing around the throne worshiping God and the Lamb. Those in white robes were those who were sealed; God’s servants who were spared the tribulation; taken care of by God and the Lamb.

Find encouragement from today’s passage and use it to help manage as we live in today’s times. Let us be thankful for God’s mercy. Our praises to God are the palm branches mentioned in today’s passage and they are tokens of joy and victory; our trophies of victory as we fight the good fight of faith, and finish our course.

When God comes or calls it will be amazing because our Creator who made the sun, moon, and more stars than we can count, will shine over us and bless us with joys more numerous than the stars; there will be no more hunger, thirst or grief but only happiness, joy, and eternal peace.
