Great Crowd — in Heaven?!
“…great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people, and language.” (Rev. 7:9)
Where are they standing?
Before the throne.
In front of the Lamb.
Where are the throne and the Lamb?
“They [the great multitude] are before the throne of God and serve in His temple day and night…”
“The Lamb is in the midst of the throne…” (Rev. 7:15-17)
Where is the temple?
“God’s temple in heaven…” (Rev. 11:19)
“I looked and in heaven the temple…” (Rev. 15:5)
So, the great crowd is “before the throne,” “in His temple,” “in heaven.”
“I heard the sound like the roar of a great crowd in heaven, shouting…” (Rev. 19:1)
