Revelation 7:15 A Good Waiter For God

“Therefore, they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple;” Revelation 7:15

In John’s vision he sees a great crowd of people from all nationalities dressed in white robes. They are standing before the throne of God and are giving Him praise. These are people who have believed in Jesus and never gave up. Jesus has brought them to heaven and has given them a white robe, a sign of purity and holiness. They are now standing before the throne of God to serve Him day and night.

When you go to a restaurant you expect the waiter to serve your every need while there. You expect him to know when you need a drink refilled, or when you are finished with a part of the meal to remove the plate, or to bring a desert. The waiter is there to serve you in your needs at that moment.

Jesus has paid the price for your sins to allow you to serve God. Before your sins were removed, you were not allowed to go before God at all. Now you have the privilege and honor to go before God. Along with that you have the privilege and honor to serve His needs.

Serving God does not have to wait until you get to heaven. You can start serving Him today. This can be done day and night.

You may ask how can you a simple person serve God who is the maker of everything and in absolute control? You are God’s hands, feet and voice on this earth.

It is through you that God touches lives. It is through you that people hear about what Jesus has done for them. It is through your prayers that God can bring about healing and other miracles in the lives of other people. It is through you that the world can learn what true love is.

You have the honor and ability to serve God today. Are you open to what God wants you to do?

Do not be like some waiters and close your eyes to the needs of God. No one likes a waiter who does not meet their needs. Will you be a good waiter for God today?

I pray today that God will show you things He needs done; that you will open your ears and eyes to seeing what God needs; that you will dedicate your life to service for God; and that God will use you to touch the world for Jesus.

  1. GOD’S COMPLETE REVELATION! BY STEVE FINNELL

    We have God’s complete revelation to all mankind, it is called the Bible. There are sixty six books. There are no more books. God’s direct revelation to mankind was finished, completed with the death of the last apostle. The church of Christ had all the information it needed to preach the gospel, teach the church about faith in Jesus Christ, and to instruct men to obey God’s commands.

    Jude 1:3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.

    Jude wrote in his letter, in about 65 A.D., that Christians already had a common salvation. He said contend for the faith which had been handed down once for all. The faith was not being added to nor were parts of the faith being deleted by new revelation. Jude knew nothing of so-called new revelations being written in books of catechisms nor were there any other extra-Biblical books of so-called new revelations from God.

    There is no 21st century new revelation, new prophecy, nor new knowledge. We already have the completed Scriptures, the BIBLE.

    1 Corinthians 13:8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.

    Direct prophecy and special knowledge from God have ceased. There is no more prophecy or knowledge that is equal to Scripture. The Bible was completed long ago.

    1 Corinthians 13:10 But when what is complete comes , then what is incomplete will no longer be used. (God’s Word Translation (1995).

    We have a completed Bible. We do not need new revelation. We do not need modern-day apostles nor prophets.

    2 Peter 1:3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.

    The apostle Peter said, in about 66 A.D., that Christians already had true knowledge. What kind of knowledge are the modern writers of catechisms, or other of the so-called modern-day apostles, and prophets disseminating? A question that is worth pondering.

    1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.

    The apostle Paul said their word was God’s word. For men today to claim that the catechisms they write, and, or, the so-called new books of revelation, are directly from God; is at best, a case of self-delusion. The worst case scenario is willful deception or purposeful ignorance.

    Acts 20:27 For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God.

    The apostle Paul declared the whole purpose of God to the Ephesians. How could Paul have declared the whole purpose of God in the first century if modern day prophets and apostles are still being given new purposes from God today? There are no new, direct revelations, from God that are equal to Scripture.

    John 16:13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative , but whatever He hears, He will speak; and will disclose to you what is to come.

    Jesus said, to the twelve apostles, that the Holy Spirit would guide them into all truth. The apostle heard all the truth. THERE IS NO NEW TRUTH TO BE ADDED! The Bible is completed, it is finished.

    Ephesians 3:3-5 that by revelation there was made know to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief. 4 By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which in other generations was not know to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit;

    The mystery of Christ was revealed to the apostle Paul as well as the other apostles and prophets. It is not continually being revealed, it was revealed. We have that revelation, it is in the Bible.

    We have God’s completed word. We have the BIBLE!

    HOW MUCH PRIDE WOULD IT TAKE FOR MEN, TODAY, TO CLAIM THAT THEIR WORDS ARE, IN FACT, EQUAL TO SCRIPTURE?

    ——————————————————————————————————————————–

    Does the meaning God’s word evolve over time? The apostle John wrote the book Revelation about 95 AD. Some men claim that they the authority to change God’s word to fit the views of the contemporary church.
