Eternal worship (Rev 7:15)

“For this reason,

They are before

The throne of God.

They worship him

Day and night

Within his temple.

The one who is seated

On the throne

Will shelter them.”

διὰ τοῦτό εἰσιν ἐνώπιον τοῦ θρόνου τοῦ Θεοῦ, καὶ λατρεύουσιν αὐτῷ ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτὸς ἐν τῷ ναῷ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ὁ καθήμενος ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου σκηνώσει ἐπ’ αὐτούς.

John said “For this reason (διὰ τοῦτό), they are before (ἐνώπιον) the throne of God (τοῦ θρόνου τοῦ Θεοῦ).  They worship him (καὶ λατρεύουσιν αὐτῷ) day and night (ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτὸς) within his temple (ἐν τῷ ναῷ αὐτοῦ).  The one who is seated (καὶ ὁ καθήμενος) on the throne (ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου) will shelter them (σκηνώσει ἐπ’ αὐτούς).”  John said that the great gentile multitude with the white robes were before the throne of God, worshipping him day and night in this heavenly temple.  They received their shelter from God who sat on the throne.  In other words, they were worshipping God in eternity.  Is that your desire to worship God forever?
