People's Bible Notes for Revelation 7:3


Re 7:3 Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees. The four winds are forbidden to do their work of destruction till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. Until the sealing has been accomplished; or in other words, until the preaching of the gospel has wrought a certain result.

    Hello disciple, that's a logical perspective. However, we know God is in control of all things and that He does everything for a perfect reason His pleasure. Glory be to God in the highest amen!

    Hi Dewey; I don't know why Dan is not mentioned in Revelation 7; nor why Simeon is not named in Deuteronomy 33. I have thought about that a lot, and prayed, and prayed and thought; but haven't found a satisfactory answer yet. Perhaps it is to signify that not everyone who was once named among the brothers, and for a certain started, will make it to the finish? Maybe there's a meaning in the names?

    Is it just me or are there only ten tribes of Israel mentioned here an equal number of 12000 people redeemed from each of the 10 tribes mentioned. The tribe of Dan and tribe of Ephraim are not mentioned here in Rev. 7. However, we know that 12 times 12 = 144 therefore the tribes of Dan and Ephraim must be included in the total number of 144.000 of the tribes of Israel. Glory be to God!

    April 10, 2018. Rose Munro, I thank you for the truth. The evil one will come at the 6th trumpet. He will receive many with his deception. To protect the Elect, Christ Jesus has shortened the 7 years to five and a half months. Otherwise, even the Elect would be fooled. It is very wrong. So many families will be brought up by their own family members to the evil one

    Verse 10~We owe salvation to Jehovah God for providing the ransom and to Jesus Christ for willingly offering himself as the ransom.
