4th Sunday in Easter – Epistle: Revelation 7:9-17

A Great Multitude from Every Nation: After this I looked, and behold, a great
multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples
and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white
robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice,
“Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” And all the
angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living
creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying,
“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and
might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white
robes, and from where have they come?” I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he
said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have
washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
“Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in
his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence.
They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike
them, nor any scorching heat.
For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will
guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their
eyes.”
P: This is the Word of the Lord.
C: Thanks be to God.
