Today, we’ll read pages 431-444 from Revelation.
Revelation is mysterious. No other book of Scripture is as hotly debated.
Whatever your take on the powerful imagery in Revelation, they key to this book can be found in a statement from today’s reading: “This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.” (See page 441.)
Revelation depicts God setting things right, ridding the world of evil, and vindicating those who remain faithful to him. As the prophet John reminds us, deliverance is coming.
In the meantime, hang in there.
Pages 431 – 444 from Revelation
After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with some one sitting on it. And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God. Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.
