LESSON 24

Treasures in Heaven

 

One of the greatest questions of all ages has been who will go to heaven. On this the scripture is clear. Let us take this next Lesson and research who will be in heaven.

The Lamb of God and the Nations of the World

  Revelation 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

  Revelation 7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

 

Here are the nations of the world mentioned as before the throne of the Lamb.

Note how they are assembled together with palms in their hands to shew forth praise to the Lamb. This multitude of people has the distinction of coming out of great tribulation. E.g. (Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego).

 

Search the scriptures concerning those who are or will be in heaven, it might be advantageous to divide the Bible into sections and different groups within the HBS group each take a section.

 

Another example I will give. Those who partake in the first resurrection will be blessed and Holy.

  Revelation 20:6  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

 

Assemble your findings and submit them with your weekly reports and we will review and publish the results.

 

I am sure there will be a wealth of scripture revelation so you will have two weeks for this Lesson.
