am I getting ready?
Revelation 12-22 is a summarization of all that is happening today, the judgment to come, and a glimpse of the beginning of eternity. As the news events appear each day in the newspapers or on the Internet, it becomes evident that the harvest of the earth is becoming ripe. Then the wrath of God, as revealed in the seven plagues, will be poured out. Judgment and suffering are in store for those whose names are not written in the Lamb’s book of life.
What difference can I make in their lives? What influence can I have in order to affect their eternal destiny?
We have a choice; we can allow our sins to pile up as high as the heavens, or we can come out of Babylon. God’s people will not participate in the sins of this world nor receive the plagues that will be poured out. Make the choice now, and have your name written in the Lamb’s book of life.
How does it all end? Salvation and glory and power belong to our God. The marriage of the Lamb will come, and His bride will be dressed in fine linen, bright and clean. Am I getting ready to be that bride? Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
Lastly, for those who overcome, they will inherit and dwell in the New Jerusalem, the Tabernacle of God. I want to be there and be one of God’s people. Christ is coming quickly, and His reward is with Him. Jesus said, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus (Rev 22:20).
