Chapter 10: The Harvest

 

A Revealing Revelation


over them. Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun

will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center

of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living

water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” His “tent” refers

to the true tabernacle, his dwelling place.


The fulfillment of these promises and more is at Revelation 21:3,4-6. John

sees “the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven” and hears “a loud

voice from the throne” say: “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he

will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with

them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will

be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things

has passed away.” He also hears the one “who was seated on the throne”

say: “To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring

of the water of life. He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his

God and he will be my son.”


These promises to God’s people are grand indeed! The firstfruits and the

great multitude that are harvested from the earth have a place in God’s

kingdom. As Revelation 5:10 explains, they are made “to be a kingdom and

priests to serve our God.” Notice God describes his people by another quality,

saying: “He who overcomes will inherit all this.” His people will be ones who

“overcome”.


Jesus, at the end of each of the seven letters to the seven churches, promises

even more to “He who overcomes”. He expands on what the inheritance

includes, and further explains the position and benefits ones who

overcome will have in God’s kingdom.
