What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
7 After this I saw four angels x standing at the four corners of the earth, y restraining the four winds of the earth z so that no wind could blow on the earth or on the sea or on any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel, who had the seal of the living God a rise up from the east. b He cried out in a loud voice to the four angels who were empowered c to harm the earth and the sea: 3 “Don’t harm the earth or the sea or the trees d until we seal the * slaves of our God on their foreheads.” e 4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed:
144,000 sealed from every tribe of the Israelites: f
12,000 g from the tribe of Reuben,
12,000 from the tribe of Gad,
12,000 from the tribe of Naphtali,
12,000 from the tribe of Manasseh,
12,000 from the tribe of Levi,
12,000 from the tribe of Issachar,
12,000 from the tribe of Joseph,
12,000 sealed from the tribe of Benjamin.
9 After this I looked, and there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, h which no one could number, i standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were robed in white with palm branches in their hands. j 10 And they cried out in a loud voice:
Salvation belongs to our God, k
who is seated on the throne,
and to the Lamb!
* Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom
and thanksgiving and honor
and power and strength
be to our God forever and ever. Amen. l
14 I said to him, “Sir, m you know.”
Then he told me:
These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. n
They washed their robes and made them white o
in the blood of the Lamb.
they will no longer thirst;
the sun will no longer strike them,
nor will any heat. t
will shepherd them; u
He will guide them to springs of living waters, v
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. w
7:2 * angels to whom it was given

7:14 * My lord
7:15 Or will spread His tent over
