Chapter 7 Verse 15 (God's WordTM)
Home New American Standard Bible New International Version 中文 Espaņol Deutsch
15 That is why they are in front of the throne of God.
They serve him day and night in his temple.
The one who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them.
`Day and night' means continually like the four living creatures do in Revelation 4:8 . That there is day and night at this time of John's vision indicates that the first heaven (Genesis 1:6-8) and the first earth have not passed away yet, Revelation 21:1 . Symbolicly, this matches with Christ's prayer that we are in Him and He in us, John 17:20-26 , and His teaching that as a vine we abide in unity, John 15:1-8 . Then we, as believers, being His temple right now, 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 , also should have this same singleness of purpose: TO SERVE GOD!
The result of SERVING GOD:
These are all things they did not have during the GREAT TRIBULATION! Luke 9:23-27 is fulfilled.
This is so typical GOD - He did the same with His shekinah presence on the Old Testament:
Later on Jesus himself defined the TRUE LIGHT in John 1:9-14 . And we get to partake of it! AMEN.NEVER AGAIN will these people go without the protection of God! HALLELUJAH!
