Ready for the Great Suffering!

After this, I saw a large crowd with more people than could be counted. They were from every race, tribe, nation, and language, and they stood before the throne and before the Lamb. They wore white robes and held palm branches in their hands, as they shouted,

“Our God, who sits upon the throne, has the power to save his people, and so does the Lamb.”

The angels who stood around the throne knelt in front of it with their faces to the ground. The elders and the four living creatures knelt there with them. Then they all worshiped God and said,

“Amen! Praise, glory, wisdom, thanks, honor, power, and strength belong to our God forever and ever! Amen!”

One of the elders asked me, “Do you know who these people are that are dressed in white robes? Do you know where they come from?” “Sir,” I answered, “you must know.” Then he told me:

“These are the ones who have gone through the great suffering. They have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb and have made them white. And so they stand before the throne of God and worship him in his temple day and night. The one who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. 

They will never hunger or thirst again, and they won't be troubled by the sun or any scorching heat.

The Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd. He will lead them to streams of life-giving water, and God will wipe all tears from their eyes.”

Revelation 7:9-17

If you are chosen to go through the GREAT SUFFERING, your reward will be much greater than the suffering!  Allow your heart and mind to look beyond the tribulation and pain on this earth and meditate on the "Impossible Truth" that there will be human beings allowed to stand before the throne of God and Praise Him forever! And if you give your heart to Jesus, you will be among them!  

Don't seek the suffering, but don't run away from it if it comes!  Seek the Heart of God and seek Jesus and be obedient to every Word that comes from the Holy Spirit!  Then you will be ready for the Great Suffering and for the Eternity of Praising Him that follows!   

Praise His Name forever!  Amen!
