Today’s Bible reading is Revelation chapter 19
(Read the entire New Testament in 2014 by reading only one chapter each day)
The problem of sin that began in the garden of Eden is growing and progressing until it finally culminates in total war against God. God in His sovereignty permits humans and demons to do evil until finally when sin is at its worse God will defeat His enemies. Jesus Christ is Lord of lords and King of kings. He will conquer Satan’s world system and the nations that rise up against God. God’s will on earth will be done as it is in heaven, and Jesus Christ will reign upon the earth. Heaven will celebrate in songs of praise to God. The great Conqueror Jesus Christ will rule! We can join in the heavenly song by praising the righteous Judge for His great power and justice. As one songwriter put it, “I’ve read the back of the book and we win.” We may lose a few skirmishes along the way, but Jesus has already won the war! Make sure that you are on the winning team.
Prayer: “Dear God, we praise You that You conquer every enemy, that You are Just and Holy and that Your judgement is pure. In Jesus name. Amen.”
