Final Victory with Christ

Rev. 17:14 … “These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.” Although this statement occurs two-thirds of the way through the Book of Revelation, it is nevertheless the one that states its central theme. Essentially it says that, though Christ has many opponents in the world, He shall in the end be…

Eating the Little Book

Rev. 10:9-10 … “So I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he said to me, ‘Take it and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.’ I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and in my mouth it was sweet as honey; and when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter.” We must remember that…

The Refusal to Repent

Rev. 9:20-21 … “The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent not of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither can see nor hear nor walk; and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts.” When man is confronted…

When I put on my first pair of glasses, the difference between what I saw before and my new perception was astounding. I could see the teacher’s handwriting from the back of…

Don’t Lose Heart

One of my favorite passages in the Bible is 2 Corinthians 4:16-18: “So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that…

The One Who is Blessed

Rev. 1:3 … “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.” To most people the Book of Revelation is a very mysterious volume, full of cryptic passages. Some despair of understanding it, and consequently seldom read it. Others, however, look upon this terminal portion of the Bible as the key to understanding all the rest. Among these students one finds…
