Today’s Reading – Revelation 1-5
They took up a new song, saying,
“You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, because you were slain, and by your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe, language, people, and nation. You made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they will rule on earth.”
Revelation 5:9-10 CEB
I have to admit I don’t understand most of this book of the Bible.
That is not to say that I am not fascinated by it.
I am also more than skeptical of anyone who claims to know what it all means – even the author didn’t understand all that he saw and wrote!
Here is what I do know . . . this is the final chapter of God’s revelation to humankind called the Bible. Like any good book the last chapter sums everything up and ties up the loose ends.
All the battles that seemed lost – God wins!
All the evil that seemed to prosper loses – God wins!
Oh and Jesus – for those that had faith without seeing – You will see Him!
Every now and then, when the night is darkest, read the last chapter of the book and remembered how everything turns out – it makes the scary parts not so scary!
