From Every Nation — Revelation 7:9

One of the magnificent visions of the Book of Revelation is the vision of the multitude before the throne of God. St. John said, “I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb” (Revelation 7:9, NIV). Heaven is not culturally oriented.

This is fulfillment of the Lord Jesus’ prayer at the night of His agony. He prayed to His Father, “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me” (John 17:20-21, NKJV). Being one in Christ is a powerful message that the world may believe in Jesus.

I have these thoughts in my heart while we are getting ready to study the Book of Revelation. Thus, I am wondering; can we have, at least, the Revelation Fellowship’s group and its English meetings for all the believers “from every nation, tribe, people and language” as the Lord Jesus Christ prayed and portrayed in the Book of Revelation (John 17:20, Revelation 7:9)?

Please pray for this to happen and do something about it. At least, let us go and invite all our friends from “every nation, tribe, people and language” to gather with one heart around the word of God.

What do you think about that? Does it make sense to you? By the way, Revelation Fellowship’s group online has been set that you can invite all your friends in your list. Invite even those who are from different nationalities. Please, let God know what you do for Him.
