TOPIC: THE REDEEMED OF THE TRIBULATION
 
TEXT: Revelation 7:1-4, 9-17
 
And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
 
Revelation 7:9-17
 
After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
 
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. 13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
 
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

INTRODUCTION TEXT
 
In the early years when the Roman Empire persecuted Christians, so many Martyrs died of their faith and as a result, the Church set aside special days to honour them. The Bible does not tell us to pray to the saints (Matt. 6:6) or through the Saints (1 Tim. 2:5), instead, we think of our connectedness to past saints and find inspiration in their stories of God’s faithfulness. All baptised Christians who have died and are now with God in glory are considered Saints. All Saints’ Day is intended to honour the memory of countless unknown and uncanonised saints who have no feast days. This feast is observed to teach us to honour the saints who have triumphed in their race on earth and to imitate their lives. Some saints were witnesses who preached, taught and acted in a Christ-like manner; some were Martyrs, killed specifically because they practised and proclaimed their faith despite opposition.
 
From our text, this great multitude is probably Christians from all times and places. Long ago, God promised Abraham that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars (Gen. 15:5) and as the sand of the sea (Gen. 32:12). Now we see that promise fulfilled. This is a huge multitude of Triumphant Christians, so large that no one can count it. This great multitude, clothed in white, palms branches in hand, are celebrating the salvation which they have experienced at God’s hand. As we celebrate the All-Saints’ Day today, we believe that one day we will join the saints in heaven to rejoice and worship our God for the salvation given us in Christ Jesus.
 
Prayer: Heavenly Father, grant me grace to remain faithful to you and in the end join the saints above in eternal worship of you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
