Servants Kept By God Revelation 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, not the trees, till we have sealed the servants of God in their foreheads. To set the tone of today's discussion, in chapter 6 the sixth seal being opened and the events that were occurring during this time. In verses 12-17 speaks of the signs in heaven that John saw, verse 12 speaks of the great earthquake that appears to shake the earth to its very core. The great earthquake is viewed as God's judgment on the earth and is a preview of the events that is described in chapter 8. There is such upheaval in the earth until the ungodly that are left here on earth cry for the mountains and rocks to fall on them for protection. This reflects the cry of the ungodly during Noah's day when the people refused to repent and ahead to God's Word. Chapter 7 expresses God's desire that no hurt, harm or danger come to the earth, trees, nor the sea until He has put His seal of protection upon His people. This chapter is viewed as an interlude between the opening of the sixth and seventh seals, which talks about God's protection on all the faithful believers during the tribulation. Those included are both Jews and non-Jews. What does this say about faithful believers before the tribulation? Just as God declared His protection on those faithful believers He protects us today who will stand firm on His Word in delivering His gospel. Believers, we are God's servants and we are kept by Him.
