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.

    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.
  • A disciple
    servant; If you are not yet saved HERE, how do you expect to be any other when your spirit leaves this world to go into eternity? Jesus said, "He that believes (present tense) on me HATH ETERNAL LIFE.." "He that believes on me is not condemned..." If your name is not written in the Lamb's Book of Life NOW, IN THIS TIME; how are you ever going to get it written when its too late?
  • Servant of God
    Washed in the blood, sealed in their forehead; The tribes of Israel are all Gods children, as they migrated to the further reaches of the earth. All those in heaven before the throne of God are the Saved, the Wheat already sifted from the chaff. None on earth are saved, for it is not pre-determined or self-determined. All must go as God has determined. On earth in the winnowing fans of life
  • Vicki
    Ren, you may be confusing the church age saints with the tribulation saints. The judgment for church age believers is to test our works to determine rewards or lack thereof. Our salvation is already secure.
