“Then one of the elders addressed me saying, “who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?” I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation.

Our Lord and God!
From the Old Testament prophet, Micah, to John who recorded God’s Revelation to him, our questions are answered.
Who saves us from our sin?
Who will “shelter us with his presence?”
“Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne , and to the Lamb!” Revelation 7:10
Lord God–your prophets foretold Christ’s coming as the Babe of Bethlehem. And they have foretold of his coming again to judge all people. We eagerly await his coming! We thank and praise you for dressing us in the white robes of righteousness paid for with the blood of your son on the cross. Through faith we believe that our sins are truly covered and that is why we do not fear your return. Help us, Lord, to share this wonderful good news with those who need to hear. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
“Amen. Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever. Amen! Revelation 7:12
