Correct. Keep up the good work.
And out of the smoke came forth
locusts upon the earth; and power was given them, as
the scorpions of the earth have power. 4And
they were told that they should not hurt the grass
of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but
only the men who do not have the seal of God on
their foreheads. Revelation
Here we see that the followers of God and the
Lamb would be protected from the torment of these
locusts. What importance would this message have to those followers of Jesus who were
being faithful to Him despite the tremendous persecution around them?
Remember what was said to the angels prior to them
opening the 7th seal of the book?
"Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees,
until we have sealed the bond-servants of our God on
their foreheads." Revelation 7:3 (NAS)
We now see the importance of the marks or seals
on the foreheads of God's bond-servants. The
mark was a way of identifying them as belonging to
God...to protect them. Later in the Revelation
we will see exactly what these marks or seals on the
foreheads were. The marks on the foreheads
that John saw were probably not made as this picture
shows (an ordinary ink stamp), but it may help us as
we think about the things that John describes.
