We will see His Face!

Scripture reading for December 29th:  Revelation 22:1-11

Key Scriptures for over-comers:  Revelation 22:1-4  “Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city.  On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month.  And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse.  The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and His servants will serve Him.  They will see His face, and His Name will be on their foreheads.”  

As great as the vision of the holy city, the New Jerusalem was, the real reward for over-comers will be to see the face of the One who redeemed them and adopted them into His family!  The cry of over-coming believers is for more of His presence! His prophets longed for Him, the Apostles longed to touch Him again, and His saints are promised that they will “reign with Him for ever and ever.”  (Revelation 22:5)

Observations for over-comers:   An old worship chorus declares: “O the glory of His Presence, We His people give Him reverence!”  “Then Moses said, “Now show me Your Glory.”  And the Lord said, “I will cause all My goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim My Name, The Lord, in your presence. . .But, He said, “you cannot see My face, for no one may see Me and live.”  (Exodus 33:18-20)
