Revelation 7:9
After this I looked, and there was a great crowd that no one could number. They were from every nation, tribe, people, and language. They were standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They wore white robes and held palm branches in their hands.

We conclude our miniseries on the Tribulation Saints, by appreciating three other facts about them. We’ve already seen that they are countless in number and comprise every nation on earth.

Now we note that every tribe is represented in heaven. So is every people-group as well as every language. In short, heaven is quite inclusive and diverse, brethren. No ethnic group, culture or tongue is marginalised there. The various forms of discrimination we’ve all endured on earth shall come to an end.

Likewise, let us mirror heaven’s attitude to all nations, tribes, peoples and languages. Let us celebrate our diversity and plurality. Given also that that’s the heart and soul of the Great Commission, every disciple and every church must appreciate the spread of the Gospel to as many language groups as possible.

That’s why it makes sense to sponsor or partner with organisations that enable various ethnic groups to have the Scriptures in their own languages. That’s why it’s wise to pray for and support ministries that broadcast the Gospel all over the world. Will you play your part?
