You are invited to participate in a unique event taking place this coming July on the campus of Texas Christian University (TCU). The National Convocation, the Central Pastoral Office for Hispanic Ministries (Obra Hispana) and North American Pacific Asian Disciples (NAPAD) of the Christian Church, warmly invite you to this one-time experience in a combined national gathering.
In the spirit of our foundational scripture, Revelation 7:9-17, we will come together giving God praise as the victorious and triumphant Church. In this text, John the Revelator, is caught up in heaven and offers a preview of things to come for the Church from a heavenly perspective. We will become that countless host of worshippers from every nation and tongue, before the throne of God. This is a foretaste of the worship offered to God for the redemptive work of Christ Jesus and the Divine Presence of God through life’s journey. It is our prayer and hope that we will experience a little heaven on earth.
Along with vibrant and spirited worship, we will have educational workshops, meal functions for fellowship, exhibits from our partners in ministry and sponsorship opportunities to support the success of this unique event. You are invited to participate in all phases of this experience. Please, plan now to be with us.
See you in Fort Worth, Texas!
A GREAT MULTITUDE FROM EVERY NATION
9 After this, I looked, and behold,
a great multitude that no one could number,
from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages,
standing before the throne and before the Lamb,
clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,
10 and crying out with a loud voice,
“Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,
12 saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?”
14 I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 “Therefore they are before the throne of God,
and serve him day and night in his temple;
and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore;
the sun shall not strike them,
nor any scorching heat.
17 For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd,
and he will guide them to springs of living water,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
