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. And they cried out in a loud voice:
“Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. – Revelation 7:3-10,14
I have full confidence that I will be completely released from all my troubles and will live in eternal glory and peace in heaven one day because I have washed my life in your blood and you have made me white and perfect. It seems too good to be true. I who have failed so miserably at being the person you wanted, and yet I am forgiven and accepted back into your fellowship because you removed your own animosity toward my hurtful animosity and cold indifference. The strength of being forgiven will give me confidence and peace to face this day in hopeful expectation of blessing.
