“Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.” Revelation 1:3
While Revelation is undoubtedly one of the most confusing and confounding books of the Bible, the reality is that for those of us who call ourselves Christians, the book is a book of real comfort. We are given an all-access pass to see the very throne room of God, and even given a glimpse into the future that God has in His hands. While the imagery can seem confusing, the meaning behind it is simply this: God wins! When Christ returns, all death, sickness, and evil will end. And for those of us who have accepted God’s gift of eternal life through Christ, that is simply good news!
As you continue to study Revelation in this current series at Fellowship Church, keep that reality in mind. Focus on the God who holds the future in His hands. Look for ways you can apply the lessons of Revelation. And walk in hope and assurance knowing that, in the end, we win!
Praise God for His glory and thank Him for holding the future in His hands. Pray for the kind of perspective He wants for you as you continue to dive into His book.
