Verse 15 (NASB)
Home New International Version God's WordTM 中文 Español Deutsch
15. "For this reason, they are before the throne of God; and they serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne shall spread His tabernacle over them.
`Day and night' means continually like the four living
in Revelation 4:8 .
That there is day and
at this time of John's vision indicates that the first heaven (Genesis
1:6-8) and the first earth have
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,
. Then we, as believers, being His temple right now,
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 , also should
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!
