Day 99: Hallelujah

Passage: Revelation 19:1 – 20:15
Key Verse: “Hallelujah!  Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for true and just are his judgments.”

We’re nearing the end of our journey through the Bible, yet here we have a vision of the start of eternity. Hallelujah! Victory! The lamb that was slain will reign evermore. The bride has prepared herself to meet her groom.

Are you prepared to meet your bridegroom? What do we still need to do?

Christ leads His army and Satan faces the doom he knew was inevitable. The book of life is opened and the nations are judged.

Praise God today for His plan. Thank Him that your name is written in the book of life and at you are assured of eternity with Him. Thank Jesus for His blood which washes you clean and allows you to share in this glorious inheritance.

Join with the angels in shouting:

“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory!”

Day 96: A Voice and A Vision

Passage: Revelation 1:1-20

On Sunday I was at a church service and this passage was the one on the order of service. I was intrigued when I noticed it, as I love to hear insights into the book of Revelation. But instead of preaching a sermon, the Minister encouraged us to find a quiet space in the church and listen for what God has to say.

I have to admit I would have preferred a sermon! Why? Because I knew that I hadn’t been listening for His voice that often lately, nor have I been asking or expecting Him to show up. I was nervous…

I needn’t have been. I had forgotten that my Father is gracious and merciful and simply wanted me to come and spend time with him, with no fear or uncertainty. The words he said to John in this passage also brought comfort to me

‘Don’t be afraid! I am the First and the Last. I am the living one.’

I can’t claim that God gave me a vision like the one he gave to John, but I do know that I heard His voice and that it restored my soul and gave me life. I easily forget or overlook simply being with God – at times I am more concerned with studying the passage or hearing some else’s wise words. I shouldn’t be, for nothing is more important than being with my Father and allowing Him to say or do what He wants to in my life.
