My creation

One night I had a dream. It was before I had read the book of Revelations about the second coming of Christ. At the time, I had struggled with that knowledge. In my dream there was a long line of people waiting for the Lord. Such a long line cascading down a hill. We were all wearing white robes and held prayer cloths. At the top of the hill stood a temple. We were waiting for the Lord and we raised our voices and kept saying in praise, "The Lord of Nazareth." We were waiting for Him to come out of the temple. When I awoke I read Revelations chapter 7:9 about the great multitude coming to greet the Lord. My painting is what I saw in my dream.

the-multitude

Revelations Chapter 7:14
"These are the ones coming out of great tribulation. They washed their robes in the blood of the lamb and made them white. That is why they are standing in front of the throne of God serving Him day and night in His temple.

And he who sits on the throne will live among them and shelter them. They will never again be hungry or thirsty and they will be fully protected from the scorching noontime heat.

For the Lamb who stand in front of the throne will be their shepherd. He will lead them to he springs of life-giving water. And God will wipe away all their tears."

Such comforting words, promises that give us Hope. The song for this post is I Can Only Imagine.
