One of the biggest changes in my life this year is the revealing of Jesus to me through the Holy Spirit, through praying and worshipping him, from others and through the Word.
The Book of Revelation in the Bible used to be just one of those books that my past churches might touch every 10 years or so or never but I no longer see it as just a weird symbolic apocalyptic book but actually for what it is, the “Revelation of Jesus” as revealed by Jesus ( through an angel to John and now to those that are willing to spend time in it and with Him to have it revealed). It is amazing how much is really in this book and how important its message will be as I believe we are in the beginning of the birth pangs of the end of the age.
Jesus is the sacrificial lamb that died for all of us to be saved. He is the only one worthy to open the seals on God’s final battle plan. [From Bible Book of Revelation Chp 17:14 ]: “They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings-and with Him will be His called, chosen and faithful followers.”
That sums up that nations and kings will rise up against Israel and Jesus in the end of the age but that Jesus will come through victorious. Also, he will reign over all and my best part that with Him, will be His called, chosen and faithful followers. I pray that God will keep me faithful to follow my calling from God and that I will bold to say “yes, He is coming soon” even when scoffers think we make no sense at all.
[From Bible, Book of Revelation 7:9] “After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation and tribe, people and languages, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
The angels, elders and living creatures in heaven were praising God and one of the elders asked who are these multitude in white robes and where did they come and He answered that they knew, they were those Christians persecuted here on earth, those coming out of the great tribulation they have washed their robes in the blood of the lamb. The discussion in the new testament about no more tears is for the saints willing to lay down their lives for Him. They will be with Him when He comes down and brings heaven down to earth.
LORD KEEP ME FAITHFUL. KEEP ME PRAYING FOR MY PERSECUTED BROTHERS & SISTERS IN JESUS. KEEP THE ONE THING THE ONE THING…YOU GOD. Thank you God.
