Revelation 7

March 14, 2009

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. Four hundred years ago verse 1 was used to ‘prove’ the world was flat.

    “I saw four angles standing at the four corners of the earth…”

  3. from vs 4 we see the remnant of Israel being very small indeed. and then the “rest” of us show up in vs. 9. So amazing to see the words throughout the Bible coming to pass, yet still so confusing I can’t get a clear picture of what is to happen. This again seems to say many will be suffering the trib. but doesn’t say if others had been raptured beforehand. The fact that in vs 14 they are described as having “washed their robes” hints that maybe they are newly come to salvation.

  5. I don’t think God wants to give us a clear picture, Deborah, otherwise there would be no need for faith.

    It is interesting that Dan isn’t mentioned in the 12 tribes but Manasseh is when he is actually Joseph’s son. Some feel Dan was disqualified because that tribe followed idols (Amos 8:14).

    This chapter is between the opening of the sixth seal and the seventh seal. Perhaps in answer to the question asked at the end of chapter 6 “For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?”

    However God’s people can withstand it because God has enabled them.

  7. We look forward to a day when there will be no more hunger, no more thirst, no more scorching heat and God will wipe away every tear from our eyes. v.16-17

    “Your kingdom come, Your will be done.”

  9. In Revelation 6:17 we read, "For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?”

    Chapter 7 answers this question. There are two groups of people who God enables to withstand it. Firstly 144,000 Jews who presumably become Christians during this time and secondly the great multitude in v.9 who maybe the ones from 6:9 as they both have white robes. It would appear many become Christians during the tribulation and die naturally or violently for their faith. Perhaps they join the Christians already raptured?? Or perhaps this is the rapture??

  11. v.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 his presence.

    God will shelter them with his presence. A picture of comfort and protection.

  13. v.5 From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed,from the tribe of Reuben 12,000,from the tribe of Gad 12,000…

    Perhaps the significance of this list is that God is able to graft in and out as he pleases (Romans 11:11-24).
