Monday--Revelation 17. Verse 14 is such a comforting verse amidst all the destruction of the book. "And the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful."
Tuesday--Revelation 18. At the beginning of the book, the martyred souls cried out to be avenged, and God told them not yet. This entire chapter is devoted to the description of destruction of lady Babylon, which God said is to avenge those martyred souls' deaths. It's a pretty complete annihilation; it would be sad to live in Babylon at that time.
Wednesday--Revelation 19. This chapter is all about how great Jesus is and how He is defeating all the enemies, and I thought, this isn't supposed to happen until the end, and then I realized, this is the end! Well, close to it, anyway. I think next week I'll start Ezekiel.
Thursday--Revelation 20. When the events in this chapter happen in real life, it will be pretty cool. I only wish John had been a little clearer on everything. Some dead people will be raised again first, and then other dead people will be raised, and then still other dead people will be raised. I guess as long as I know I'm saved, dead people of all sorts can be raised for whatever purpose and it will all be okay in the end.
Friday--Revelation 21. The first verse says, "and there was no more sea." In the margin I wrote a note from when my dad preached through Revelation (14+ years ago): John was exiled on an island. Every morning he woke up and looked at the sea. Every night he went to bed next to the sea. When he saw in his vision that there was no more sea, this was a major deal to him!
Saturday--Revelation 22. A more fitting end to the book I could not have written. John sees more of the beauty surrounding God's throne, he issues a warning to all those thinking about changing any of the words of God (NIV, anyone?), and he signs off with a blessing of grace and peace to "you" (whoever that is).
