OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL WEDNESDAY 25TH MAY 2022 (THE SEVEN SEALS 7)
TOPIC: The Seven Seals 7”
MEMORISE: Revelation 7:14b
“And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”
READ: Revelation 7:1-17, Revelation 8:1-5 (KJV)
After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, that no wind might blow on earth or sea or against any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel ascending from the rising of the sun, with the seal of the living God, and he called with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm earth and sea, 3 saying, “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” 4 And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel:
5 12,000 from the tribe of Judah were sealed, 12,000 from the tribe of Reuben, 12,000 from the tribe of Gad,
6 12,000 from the tribe of Asher, 12,000 from the tribe of Naphtali, 12,000 from the tribe of Manasseh,
7 12,000 from the tribe of Simeon, 12,000 from the tribe of Levi, 12,000 from the tribe of Issachar,
8 12,000 from the tribe of Zebulun, 12,000 from the tribe of Joseph, 12,000 from the tribe of Benjamin were sealed. A Great Multitude from Every Nation
9 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?” 14 I 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 min 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 hi presence.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat.
17 For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of sliving water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
While many people will die from the havoc caused by the sixth seal, some will still survive. Many Christians who determine not to bow to the Anti-Christ will be there too. It is these people who will be saved by the angel in the Bible reading for today before the seventh seal is opened. At last, after all they would have gone through, they will come out of the great tribulation, clothed with robes before the throne of God. They will be joining those of us that had already gone with the rapture.
For those who will still be left behind on earth, they will experience the vengeance of God for the saints that were persecuted and martyred.
And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. – (Revelation 8:4-5)
These people will experience the worst of tribulations.
Now I want you to spend good time praying today. Below is the list of prayer points:
1. Father, thank You for saving me. Thank You that I am a Christian and for the hope of reigning with You in glory.
2. Lord, as You prayed for Peter, please pray for me. Don’t let me fall into the hands of the devil, in Jesus’ name.
3. Father, I pray for all my family members and loved Ones; please don’t let them miss the rapture, let them all know You and live holy.
4. Father, please give me the boldness to preach the gospel to the unsaved around me. Don’t let anyone around me miss the rapture, in Jesus’ name.
5. Father please raise missionaries around the world who will win souls to Your Kingdom. Let everyone know the danger ahead if they don’t repent. Please Lord, send Your Holy Spirit to help convict them to repentance, in Jesus’ name.
I pray that I will see you in heaven after the rapture, in Jesus’ name.
