Revelation 7:13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?”
14 And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 “Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them.
16 “They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat;
17 “for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
We the church in heaven, ask John a question to draw out an answer. Who are these dressed in white robes? And where did they come from? They are all those who come out of the great tribulation. They are washed the same way we are, by the blood of Jesus.
God is so good in that though this group refused to live for Christ before the rapture event, they come to him during the great tribulation. There will be a great harvest during this time to reap the souls of men. They will have to die for their allegiance to Christ during this time. They are not second rate christians. Life during the tribulation will be harder yet God will wipe away every tear due to pain that they endure. God, please save more people than we can ever imagine. While we still have time, may we sow the seeds of Your word into people that You will reap during this time of great tribulation.
