Revelation 7:15





15 Therefore [dia] [touto] are they [eisi] before [enopion] the throne [thronos] of God, [theos] and [kai] serve [latreuo] him [autos] day [hemera] and [kai] night [nux] in [en] his [autos] temple: [naos] and [kai] he that sitteth [kathemai] on [epi] the throne [thronos] shall dwell [skenoo] among [epi] them. [autos]   KJV-Interlinear



15 "For this reason, they are before the throne of God; and they serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne shall spread His tabernacle over them.    NASB



These believers will come into heaven in untold numbers, and over a very short time period.  Namely just a few years, and under three and a half years to be more precise.


At some point you should become aware of the tremendous horror that will be unfolding on the earth during this time of tribulation.Later in this study, the Bible will describe the horrors as continual, relentless, and unending without pause.


Today we see disasters come and go.One year we might become aware of a disaster, and then a few years later, another disaster comes along. We read about them, see the highlights on the news, but for most of us, they are just events that occur somewhere else in the world, and the impact on us soon leaves our thoughts as other things in life take over our attention.


But during this time in the future, which most folks do not now give much credence to, there will be folks who will live all over the world, who will be caught up in the most horrendous period of all of human history.  They will live in, live through, and experience firsthand, untold horrors, and for these folks who are in heaven, they will actually die.


Just a quick note here.  We have already studied that one-fourth of the worlds population will die because of Satan’s attempted utopia.Later we will see that one-third, of the worlds population will die in the judgments and horrors that will come in the last half of the Tribulation.


Do some quick math. If the population was 100 and one-fourth died, that would leave 75.  If then, one-third die, that will leave 50.So, during the seven year period, prior to the Second Advent of Christ, a full one-half of the worlds population, will die.  Everyone will be affected.  This includes both believers and unbelievers.


When Christ returns at the Second Advent, then the remaining fifty percent will die almost instantly when His foot touches the earth. Only a hand full (of mature believers in hiding, and some in Jerusalem), will survive to be rescued by Christ, and they will go into the Millennium to repopulate the world.


The actual numbers of these groups are unknown to us.But if all of this were to begin to happen now, then there are only seven billion people to fit into the calculations, less the living believers taken at the rapture of course.


But if all of these events do not occur for another century, then the total population could very well number over fifty billions of people.  In either case, the world will be one huge mess, needless to say.


Our verse says, ‘for this reason.’And that means these people are in heaven for only one reason, and that is because they believed in Christ.  Because Christ came in the First Advent and went to the Cross in our behalf, and purchased salvation for us, then by means of faith, these people are saved.


The future of this world is not a good one.It is set in scripture, written down in the Divine Decrees, and cannot be changed.  Even if you thought that you could go out and convince people to repent, even if you could create miracles and gain the attention of millions, all of that and more, would not be enough to change the course of history, which lies before us.


People will ignore the future just as they ignore the past.People will pursue the world, and ignore their spiritual destiny.  And, whether all of this occurs in the very near future, or in the distant future, whether you and I are alive at the Rapture, or whether it occurs long after we have left this world, should make no difference to each of us, as we have the knowledge and the information, and the opportunity to prepare ourselves, right now, for our own personal eternity.


That is what is important to each of us.Getting ready for our own eternity, because it is coming, regardless of what plans you might have for this weekend, or plans you might have for your own future in this world.


These people will worship and be before the Throne of Christ, day and night forever.  And that simply means, eternal life.


The tabernacle (dwelling place) of God is in heaven.At various times a temporary dwelling place was provided for on this earth, but when the new heaven and earth (new universe) comes into existence, then God will dwell everywhere and in everyone simultaneously.  There will be no further need for a separate temple or a tabernacle.


The tabernacle spread over each and every person is their (our) eternal security.
