Jesus has the Keys!

Scripture reading for November 30th:  Revelation 1

Key Scriptures for over-comers:  Revelation 1:17-18  “When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as though dead.  Then He placed His right hand on me and said:  “Do not be afraid.  I am the First and Last.  I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever!  And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”  

John, the disciple who Jesus loved, wrote the final book of our Bible.  It is a revelation of Jesus Christ!  As John was worshiping God while imprisoned on the Isle of Patmos, he was given a vision of Jesus Christ standing before Him in resurrection glory.  This caused John to fall down as a dead man!  Jesus put His hand on him and spoke to him in words of revelation and reassurance!  As One who tasted death for all mankind, and now was risen victorious over death, Jesus told John that He now possessed the keys of death and Hades and was alive for ever and ever!

Observations for over-comers:  The resurrected Christ hold our key over death and Hades and tells us not to fear anything!  “But the saints of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever–yes, for ever and ever.”  (Daniel 7:18)
