Week 52 Day 2
between heaven and earth
between the glory of heaven
and the devastation of the earth
between lofty worship in heaven
and angels carrying out judgment on earth
And caught in the middle were the persecuted Christians
still on earth but
longing to be on the other side
held in reproach on earth but
praised and elevated in heaven.
There is joyful worship in heaven because justice is being done
God is getting what God deserves
the saints are getting what they deserve
and sinners are getting what they deserve
but hold on
there is still mercy
the door stands open.
Horsemen, an earthquake, a "passover" mark
and a crowd in heaven.
Revelation 6 & 7
7When He opened the fourth seal, the fourth living creature
said, "Come and see." 8Behold, a pale horse. The name of him
who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. Power
was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword,
with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
9When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls
of those who had been slain for the testimony of the word of God.
10They cried out, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You
judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"
11Then a white robe was given to each of them; and they were told to rest a little while longer, until their number was completed.
12When He opened the sixth seal, there was a great earthquake;
the sun became black as sackcloth, and the moon became like
blood. 13The stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops
its late figs when shaken by a mighty wind. 15And the kings of
the earth, the great men, the mighty men, every slave and free
man, hid in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains.
2Then another angel cried, saying, "Do not harm the earth
till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads."
4The number of those who were sealed was one hundred and
forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
9After these things, behold, a great multitude which no one
could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues,
stood before the throne and the Lamb, clothed with white robes,
with palm branches in their hands, 10and saying, "Salvation
belongs to our God and to the Lamb!" 11Angels stood around
the throne with the elders and the four living creatures. They fell
on their faces and worshiped God, 12saying: "Blessing and
glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and
might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen."
13One of the elders answered, "Who are these in white robes,
and where did they come from?" 14 I said, "Sir, you know."
So he said, "These are the ones who come out of the great
tribulation, and washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb.
They are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night
in His temple. He who sits on the throne will dwell among them.
16They shall neither hunger nor thirst anymore; 17for the Lamb
will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
