Monday--Revelation 10. This is a cool little chapter. Rainbow angles, no more mystery of God, and a little book that tasted yummy but made John sick. I don't even know where to begin, but the picture in my head of that rainbow angel is kinda pretty, and I think I might try to draw it.
Tuesday--Revelation 11. In light of it being the anniversary of the September 11th attack in New York, I read this chapter and thought how appropriate it was that this chapter fell on this day. Two days ago I read where all this bad stuff happened, but nobody repented. Today, it said that 7,000 men died in an earthquake, and the remnant gave the glory to God. After the attacks 11 years ago, (it seemed to me that) a lot of people came back to God. It's been 11 years, and I think life has gone back to the way it was before for the majority of people affected in some way by the attacks. I was just saying to my husband that it seems like everyone's forgotten what a big deal it was. Movies are coming out today, parties are planned for today. I'm not saying everyone in America should walk around with the shroud of death on their shoulders today, but how is it honoring the sacrifice of those fire fighters and others who gave their lives helping others by running a sale on dvd players? This is woe number two. No wonder there are seven woes during the tribulation...
Wednesday--Revelation 12. There is so much in this little chapter. Five words you don't expect to see anywhere: "There was war in heaven." Something else you don't expect to read: that the earth actually helped someone by opening up and swallowing water. It's amazing to me that Satan would start a war in heaven (and be beat by the blood of the Lamb) and immediately come to earth and start another war with people who follow Jesus.
Thursday--Revelation 13. The very last verse contained something I had never realized before. The number of the beast was the number of man. The beast was trying to let the average person know it was right there with them--"Hey look! My number is the same as your number! It's meant to be; it's fate." I'm glad I won't be here for that. How easy would it be to believe the beast? Especially after all the miracles it does.
Friday--Revelation 14.This chapter ends really gross. An angel uses a sickle to harvest "grapes" and put them in a "winepress". Ugh, just go read it for yourself; it's too gross to tell you the rest. Another reason I'm glad I won't be there.
Saturday--Revelation 15. Listen to the song, it does the chapter as close to justice as humans can.
