13 Then one of the elders said to me, “Who are these people wearing white robes, and where did they come from?” 14 I said to him, “Sir, you know.” Then he said to me, “These people have come out of great hardship. They have washed their robes and made them white in the Lamb’s blood. 15 This is the reason they are before God’s throne. They worship him day and night in his temple, and the one seated on the throne will shelter them. 16 They won’t hunger or thirst anymore. No sun or scorching heat will beat down on them, 17 because the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them. He will lead them to the springs of life-giving water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Revelation 7:13-17, CEB)
These are the people who have come out of the great hardship, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
This is a vision of Heaven, why are there tears?
When we have come through something that has tested our faith so we will be moved to emotion. Tears are not always sad remember.
Maybe these are tears of joy for surviving the ordeal and being in the presence of our creator.
We have many things to be joyful for when the fulfillment of God’s kingdom is finally here.
So help others now know that God loves them.
Love People. Love God.
