I am coming soon!
Scripture reading for December 31st: Revelation 22
Key Scriptures: Revelation 22:1-5 “Then the angel showed me the River of the water of Life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the Tree of Life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His servants will worship Him. They will see His face, and His Name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.”
John is finally allowed to see the River of Life and the Tree of Life on the main street of the New Jerusalem. He is assured that nothing accursed will be allowed in to entice those in the city to eat of anything else because the throne of God and Christ the Lamb are in the middle of this city. Their presence brings glorious light to everything and there can be no darkness or shadow of turning. The sun and stars will no longer shine because heaven and earth are now one and Christ’s glorious rulership will be forever and ever with His Father, God. This eternal blessedness is reserved for all who by faith received Jesus Christ as Lord and repented of their sins. Now is the time to act for Jesus is coming soon (suddenly)!
Revelation 22:6-7 “And He said to me, “These Words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent His angel to show His servants what must soon take place.” “And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the Words of the prophecy of this book.””
Faith confession and prayer: Father God, I hear Your eternal Word and have read it myself and believe it to be true and clear. I look forward to seeing Your face and partaking of the Tree of Life and River of Life forever and ever in the light of Your amazing glory and grace. I ask for mercy towards my children and grandchildren and all friends and neighbors that they may share in this amazing prophecy of Jesus Christ, King of kings, and Lord of Lords!
Revelation 22:17, 20-21 “The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take of the Water of Life without price.” . . .”He Who testifies to these things says, “Surely, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.” The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.”
