HEAVEN BELONGS TO...

What’s your favorite way to celebrate a victory? It might depend on how big the victory really is. This victory is the biggest ever. So get ready to celebrate, even now!

Notes And Next Steps

Revelation 7:9-17 + Part 4 of the series “Victorious"

 

There before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. (Revelation 7:9)

Look! Who do you see in that crowd of people in heaven? 

“Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:11)

“Salvation” means deliverance.  

“Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God forever and ever. Amen!” (Revelation 7:12)

“These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from? These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:13,14)

One mistake people make is thinking that existence on this earth should be heavenly.
