Revelation 10:7 The Mystery Of God Will Be Accomplished

But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound the trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets. Revelation 10:7

Having the desire to accomplish something is the dream of many people. Some have the drive to fulfill their dreams, while others fall short.

Those who aim to fulfill their dreams sometimes speak of them, letting others know what their goals are. Others will just hint at their dreams or keep the desires to themselves not wanting any one to destroy the desires.

John describes that when the seventh angel is to sound his trumpet the mystery of God will be accomplished just as it was prophesied.

It is often amazing to a person to have someone of great stature and popularity to recognize someone of low status. Many wonder how or why the higher status person even recognizes the lower person.

God works in that same way. He is the creator of the universe, who is perfect and holy. Yet, He loves people who sinned against Him.

Israel could not understand that God wanted to save not only the people of Israel, but also all the people of the world. It was a mystery that was revealed through the prophets, but not fully understood.

Every day people around the world, who are not Jewish, are being saved by God. There will be a day when this will be finalized and completed by God’s work and power. The mystery of His great love will be revealed for the whole world to see.

Knowing this, every believer must be willing to live for God and be His witness to others. Every person must be given an opportunity to know the mystery of His love and salvation that is being provided.

As a believer, God has already opened your eyes to His mystery that has been revealed in your heart. He loves you and is willing to forgive you of all your sins.

However, this mystery is to not stop with just you, be willing to pass it on to others. The majority of people around the world has never been given the opportunity to know the love of God or to even know that He loves them. Every person needs to know of God’s great love for them, to be given an opportunity to be saved as God desires them to be.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know the mystery of God in your heart; that you will let others know of God’s love for them; and that you will fulfill God’s desire for your life.

Revelation 7:13 Are Your Robes White?

I answered, “Sir you know.” And he said, “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

Every day people get dressed to cover themselves for the day. They choose clothing of different styles and colors, depending upon their mood and what they are doing.

Throughout each day, the clothing will get dirty with sweat or just normal dirt. On a regular basis most people will take the time to clean their clothing. They do not want stains or smells to permeate their clothing.

As John saw a vision of many people in white robes, he was told that these people were those who washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb to make them white.

No one wants to really be seen as a dirty or filthy person. Many will take showers several times a day and wash clothes daily in order to keep and appear clean. Doing this keeps them clean on the outside, but does nothing for the inside.

Watching the person talks and acts will often reveal what they are like on the inside. It shows what their heart is like. Believers are to be different from the world and look like Jesus–holy and righteous.

Due to choosing to sin, people are dressed in sin–black and dirty. Their lives are filthy and stained with corruption that leads to death.

Many have chosen to wash their clothes–their lives–in the blood of the Lamb, Jesus. It is His blood that removes the stain and dirtiness of sin in their lives. He gives them the ability to live a holy and righteous life before God and man. These are the true believers in Jesus.

Every time you have chosen to sin, you have put a black stain upon the clothing of your life. The only way to have it cleansed and made white is by the blood of Jesus.

The world will strive to keep you dirty with sin, but God has a different plan for you. You are not able to clean your life up on your own. No amount of good will cleanse the stains of sin in your life.

Instead of staying clothed with dirty clothes, repent of your sins and allow Jesus to remove your dirty clothing and cloth you in His white righteousness and holiness. Be set apart, holy unto God for His glory and honor.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will allow the blood of Jesus to cleanse you have all sin; that you will repent before God for your sins; and that you will be clothed with the righteousness and holiness of Jesus.
