In Revelation chapter 6 we were witnesses to a world under a storm of divine judgment. The Lord Jesus took possession of the title deed to this planet in chapter 5. He began opening the seven seals of that title deed. He is beginning the process of redeeming this planet out of the hands of sin, sinners and Satan.
We watched Jesus open six of the seven seals on the scroll. Before He did, there was a great peal of thunder in Heaven, Rev. 6:1.This thunder signaled the approaching storm of God’s divine wrath. As each seal was opened judgment and wrath began to be poured out upon the earth.I just want to remind you that we haven’t seen the worst of the suffering and sorrow that coming upon this world. After the seals, the seven trumpets will sound, and the seven bowls will be poured out upon the earth. As we move deeper into the heart of this book we are going to see death, judgment intensify.
In Revelation 7 is a parenthetical passage that represents a pause in God’s plan to judge the earth. The first part of the storm has passed; the worst part lies unseen in the future.
In Revelation 7 our Lord extends grace to a select group of people right in the midst of the Tribulation Period. In Revelation 7 we have two groups: the first group is identified as the 144,000, or SEALED HEBREW MISSIONARIES in verses 1-8. The second group is identified as the SAVED HUMAN MULTITUDE in verses 9-17.
