…I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues stood before the throne with white robes, and psalms in their hands. And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which siteth upon the throne, and unto the Lord.
John continues his description of the heavenly scene which is comprised of an innumerable of people from every nation, tongues, and kindreds worshipping the God of our salvation dressed in white robes because their robes have been washed in the blood of the Lamb Jesus Christ. What a glorious scene this will be when all God's children get to heaven?
Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross makes it possible for every believer to be included in the "all nations" who will be worshipping God in the scene John describes. Included in this number are the saints who have come through the tribulation and maintained their faith in Jesus Christ.
Scripture clearly states that one day all will bow before the Lord and confess that Yes Jesus is the Son of God and He is Lord. What this means is that all who do not accept Jesus as Lord will one day do so.
During the "great tribulation" saints will suffer great persecution at the hands of Satan. The battle will be between righteousness and wickedness. Satan knows his time is limited before he is cast into the pit for ever and he trying one last time to destroy as many of God's people as he can. Take heart he is a defeated foe.
Stand firm in our faith and one day we will be in that innumerable number.
