Devotion on Witnessing, Revelation 7:9–14. 2 pages.

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.” 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. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb (Revelation 7:9–14).

In our text, we have this beautiful picture painted for us by the Apostle John showing the multicultural nature of God’s love for the whole world. … People from every tribe and every nation are coming together to worship the Risen Jesus! It was beyond John’s ability to even count them all. What a vivid reminder of God’s call and desire for His chosen people to reach out to people of every tribe and nation, to reach all people with the good news of Jesus.
