Salvation and Victory (Revelation 7-9)
The main theme of the book of Revelation is that of salvation in Christ through faithfulness in tribulation.
Specifically noted in chapter seven is the scheme of redemption that is of God and the Lamb, but is limited to those who have “come out of the great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” Two main points for us to consider here:
There is no salvation outside of Christ. Whatever religious or philosophical plan one pursues that either denies or ignores Jesus is empty and futile.
There are two fundamental acts involved in our salvation: God’s part and man’s part.
God has done His part to offer salvation to all who will accept. Have we, are we, doing our part to make sure our garments are white? Be obedient, be faithful.
