Revelation 7:9, 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; 10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. This isn’t true of this great multitude in heaven. God will wipe away every tear from their eyes: In heaven, the redeemed will know no more sorrow or pain. The hurt and the struggle of this earthly life are gone, and tears are a thing of the past, because God will wipe away every tear. Great multitude worship God in heaven joined voices in praise. All creation around Throne join in Blessing, Glory, Wisdom, Thanksgiving, Honour and Power and Might. The Chosen in Revelation 14:1 seen by John on Mount Zion with Lamb, have Christ and God’s Name written on foreheads. In Revelation 14:3–5 :-
And they were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. For it is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These have been redeemed from mankind as first fruits for God and the Lamb, and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are blameless.
They were clothed with the robes of justification, holiness, and victory; and they had palms in their hands, as conquerors used to appear in their triumphs. Such a glorious appearance will the faithful servants of God make at last, fought the good fight of faith, and finished their course. With a loud voice they gave to God and the Lamb the praise of the great salvation. Clothed with white robes reminding us of covering righteousness of Jesus. They are arrayed for holy service at once for they wear white robes fitted for priestly service. Palm branches were emblems of victory as palm branches remind us of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem John 12:12-16. Jesus was praised as Savior and King by word Hosanna, means “save now!” It shows this great multitude celebrates a great victory with palm, ensign of triumph indicating conflict and conquest. Palm is given for victory won for God distributed as prize after warfare and victory. The glorified carry palms, showing courage, strength not leisure in gardens of pleasure or palaces of peace, but endured hardness as men trained for war. Palm Sunday celebrates the triumphant entry of Christ. The diversity here is evidence the Great Commission will be fulfilled before the end, even as Jesus promised (Matthew 24:14). John knew they came from different nations, tribes, people, and tongues, but in unison. The individuality in heaven, shows people have a spirit form of own body. I heaven people recognize Jesus and remember loved ones, patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In heaven will be people out of every nation, and kindred, people, and languages. Time zone in God is instant so a Christian passing immediately from this life enters into the presence of Christ in heaven. Heaven is part of galaxy in Hebrews 12:22-23 in the gospel:- You have come to Mount Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem, city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of new covenant, to the sprinkled blood that speaks better word than blood of Abel. The writer compares Mt. Sinai with Mt. Zion in which in the old covenant no one could come near God except under strict conditions. God shakes mountain with thunder and lightning but now believers come boldly to God the Blood of Jesus. In Christ we are brought near to heavenly realities. We are nearer heaven than we think, nearer loved ones in heaven, angels, God and Jesus Himself.
