Does the fact that they were clothed in white robes and held palms in their hands require the conclusion that they are resurrected with literal, physical resurrection bodies cf. Luke Luke ? Since they had been slain, they were without physical bodies, and yet they were given white robes to wear Rev. Thus, in Revelation the wearing of a white robe did not require a resurrection body.
Even bodiless souls could wear such a robe. Even though his soul was without its body, Jesus ascribed eyes Luke Luke and a tongue Luke Luke to his bodiless soul. In spite of the fact that angels do not have physical bodies by nature, the Bible ascribes wings, faces, feet, and hands to them Isa. Although the Bible ascribes such things as hands, feet, faces, tongues, and the wearing of clothing to human, angelic, and divine beings, it does not mean that those beings have literal, physical bodies such as resurrected people have.

The Great Multitude in White Robes 9 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God. Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever.

Justin Torres.These seals would be made of wax or clay, attached in such a way as to prevent the document from being opened without breaking the seal.
Such seals therefore would give the document a measure of protection, because anyone seeking to tamper with the document would first have to break the seals.
As we will see in chapter 6, this scroll contains the secrets of the future. The Lamb will open the seals one at a time, progressively revealing events that the seals had been hiding. No one on earth was found worthy, and John began to weep in despair. Chapter 6 shows the Lamb opening the first six of the seven seals. While it would not usually be possible to see any of the contents of a scroll until all the seals were broken, the book of Revelation is closer to poetry than to prose, and the progressive nature of the revelation that follows the breaking of each seal involves poetic license:.
They were told to rest a bit longer, because more martyrs would be joining them Two questions arise: Who are the one hundred forty four thousandand who is the great multitude ? As noted above, this great multitude is probably Christians from all times and places. Long ago, God promised Abraham that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars Genesis and as the sand of the sea Genesis Now we see that promise fulfilled. This would be a heartening vision for John—exiled on Patmos Island—alone and presumably lonely.
He has already scribed letters from Christ to seven churches, in which five of the seven were revealed to have serious problems — This vision, however, presents the other side—a huge multitude of triumphant Christians, so large that no one can count it.
The multitude is standing before the throne of God see v. During the Exodus, at the first Passover, the Israelites were instructed to slaughter a lamb and put some of its blood on the doorposts of their houses so that the death angel, seeing the blood, would pass over their houses Exodus God then prescribed that two lambs were to be offered on the altar every day Exodus Lambs were thus seen as vulnerable animals who suffered death in behalf of others.
In his humiliation, his judgment was taken away. Who will declare His generation? For his life is taken from the earth. In the New Testament, white represents several things—all positive:.Your email address will not be published. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands. God did not seal these people as He did theIsraelites. A worldwide harvest of people will come to Christ in the Tribulation. This encompasses not only Gentiles but also Jews beyond thelisted in the first eight verses.
Clothed in white robes means that these saints in heaven received a forensic or judicial righteousness before God by the death of Christ. They have no righteousness in themselves. They only have righteousness from the death of Jesus for their sins. Palm branches were symbols of joy by those watching a triumphal procession.
They celebrated the victory that is in Christ. The group gathered around the throne cried out with loud jubilation. Salvation belongs to God, not us. We cannot take credit for salvation. People give testimonies today that make it appear that they are a wonderful people for the change made in their lives. They make an issue out of their smoking or drinking.
Not one ounce of credit goes to us. All glory should go to Jesus and His death on the cross. The throne here is the same throne of chapters four and five.
This is a place of preference because they stand in the presence of God. The cause of praise to God is the work of God in salvation. It was God who provided the Lamb who would die for our sins.
All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God.
A number of groups stationed themselves on their faces before God. This is an act of humility and worship. When people step into the presence of an absolutely holy God, they see their sin in the clearest light possible.
Even angels who did not sin fall on their faces before God. These groups manifest the essence of God. Because of His glorious person, we must worship Him with a sense of awe.Revelation Revelation KJV 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; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever.

Oddset is sports betting with fixed odds where you compete against the betting operator. If the predictions are correct the odds are first multiplied with each other and then with the amount of the stake.
In that kind of bet the player has to predict the end-result of a game. The player predicts whether the result at the end of the normal game-time will be one out of three options: a win for one team, a win for the other team or a draw.
This is a two-way option. In a football match it can be seen as 0. Here as well, the score at the end of the normal game-time is taken into account. This is predicting the score at the end of the normal game-time. There are many possible score lines for a match so in this bet type you can often find quite high odds. This is to predict the result of half time and full time in the same bet. So there are nine possible results for this bet.
This is to predict who will score the first goal in the match. A normal own goal also counts as the first goal scorer. If you place your money on a substitute and he was on the bench when the first goal was scored it is often that you get your money back. This is often used when there is a big favourite.
