Conquerors of the beast!

Scripture reading for December 21st: Job 18-20, Psalm 141, Revelation 15

Key Scriptures: Revelation 15:1-4 “Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and amazing, seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is finished. And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire–and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps in their hands. And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and amazing are Your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the nations! Who will not fear, O Lord and glorify Your Name? For You alone are holy. All nations will come and worship You, for Your righteous acts have been revealed.””

John’s visit to heaven brought revelations of the future final judgment of the beast and those who received his mark. The seven angels with the final seven plagues appeared as a sign in heaven that was “great and amazing!” Then John saw a sea of glass mingled with fire and a great company of those who had conquered the beast by the “blood of the Lamb and Word of their testimony.” (Rev. 12:11) This company was standing by the sea of glass with harps and they began to sing the ancient song of Moses, now known as the song of the Lamb! Worship of God flowed for His amazing deeds of justice and holiness that were soon to be displayed on earth and in heaven. Amen! Amen!

Psalm 141:8 “But my eyes are toward You, O God, my Lord; in You I seek refuge; leave me not defenseless.”

Faith confession and prayer: Lord Jesus, King of the nations, You alone are holy and are worthy of praise and worship! My overcoming testimony is in Your sacrifice as the Lamb of God for my sins and the sins of the world. Empower me today to snatch from the fire those still under Your wrath.

Job 19:25-27 “For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last He will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God, Whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. My hearts faints within me!”

Beast-conquering worshipers!

Scripture reading for December 19th:  Revelation 15, Psalm 133-34, Proverbs 6

Key Scriptures:  Revelation 15:2-4 “And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire–and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands.  And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and marvelous are Your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty!  Just and true are Your ways, O King of the nations!  Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your Name?  For You alone are holy.  All nations will come and worship You, for Your righteous acts have been revealed.””

John again sees the redeemed in heaven around a sea of glass mingled with fire.  These are those who have conquered with the blood of the Lamb and their testimony and they are singing the song of Moses and the Lamb.  They worship God for His marvelous deeds of deliverance and judgment of the wicked and His kingship over all nations.  They will worship the Holy One forever!

Faith Confession:  I praise my Lord Jesus for His marvelous salvation and the gift of righteousness through faith.  I proclaim and confess Jesus as King of Kings over all nations and choose freely to worship Him now and forever!

Psalm 133:1, 3 “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!  . . . It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion!  For there the Lord has commanded the blessing, life forevermore.”

God’s righteous acts revealed!

Scripture reading for December 19th:  Micah 4-6, Revelation 15

Key Scriptures:  Revelation 15:3-4 “And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and amazing are Your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty!  Just and true are Your ways, O King of the nations!  Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your Name?  For You alone are holy.  All nations will come and worship You,  for Your righteous acts have been revealed.”  

John sees a group of martyrs who are now in heaven.  These have overcome the beast and they have harps ready to worship.  Their song is part of the ancient song of Moses, sung by Israel after their great deliverance from the pursuing Egyptian army, as God drowned them all in the sea.  God’s marvelous deeds and amazing justice should cause all to worship Him.

Micah 6:7-8  “Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil?  Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”  He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice; and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” 

Prayer:  Lord,  thank You for Your righteous acts throughout history and Your Word.  You alone are worthy of worship now and for eternity.  May I walk humbly with You daily.  Amen.

Rejoicing in God’s Deliverance!

Scripture reading for January 20th:  Exodus 14-18

Key Scriptures:  Exodus 15:1-3  “Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord:  “I will sing to the LORD, for He is highly exalted.  The horse and its rider He has hurled into the sea.  The LORD is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation.  He is my God, and I will praise Him, my father’s God, and I will exalt Him.”  

God brought Moses and the Israelites through the Red Sea and then closed the waters over their pursuing enemy, the Egyptians.  He proved Himself faithful to His covenant with the fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  He was the LORD, the covenant God!  This deliverance foreshadows the defeat of Antichrist and his army at the end of the last days!

Rejoice in the LORD:  God is the faithful One who is true to His word and has power to bring it to pass!  “And I saw what looked like a sea of glass mixed with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and over the number of his name.  The held harps given them by God and sang the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb: “Great and marvelous are Your deeds, Lord God Almighty. . . ” (Revelation 15:2-3)

The seven bowls of God’s wrath!

Scripture reading for December 21st:  Revelation 15

After God warned the entire earth through the three angelic messengers, John saw another marvelous sign in heaven: “seven angels with the seven last plagues–last, because with them God’s wrath is completed.  And I saw what looked like a sea of glass mixed with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and over the number of his name.  They held harps given them by God and sang the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb:  “Great and marvelous are Your deeds, Lord God Almighty.  Just and true are Your ways, King of the ages.  Who will not fear You, O Lord, and bring glory to Your Name?  For You alone are holy.  All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.”  (Revelation 15:1-4)

The redeemed sing and play their harps as the seven angels with the last plagues stand ready.  Their song is an ancient song of Moses and the people of Israel as they experienced God’s grace in deliverance through His plagues and judgments on Egypt. (See Exodus 15:11-18)  God’s judgments are righteous acts, for He alone is just and true and holy!  God is to be feared–revered because of who He is!  All nations will worship before Him–for He alone is worthy!

“After this I looked and in heaven the temple, that is the tabernacle of the Testimony, was opened.  Out of the temple came the seven angels with the seven plagues.  . . .and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.”  (Revelation 15:5-6, 8)

The Song of Moses!

Scripture reading for December 24th: Revelation 15:1-8

Moses led the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt about 1500 years before Christ.  After ten plagues that brought judgment on the gods of Egypt and those that followed them, the Egyptian army and Pharaoh decided to attack the unarmed Israelites as they faced the Red Sea.  God, through Moses, opened the Red Sea and delivered His people.  When they were safely on the other side and the Egyptian army was crossing, Moses held up his rod and the sea drowned all those in pursuit.  Moses and Miriam led the people in a song of worship to God for His amazing deliverance!  (Exodus 14-15)(Exodus 15:11)

“And I saw what looked like a sea of glass mixed with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and over the number of his name.  They held harps given them by God and sang the song of Moses  the servant of God and the song of the Lamb:  “Great and marvelous are Your deeds, Lord God Almighty.  Just and true are Your ways, King of the Ages.  who will not fear You, O Lord, and bring glory to Your Name?  For You alone are holy.  All nations will come and worship before You, for Your righteous acts have been revealed.”” (Revelation 15:2-4)

John saw a company of people who had been victorious over the beast and had not taken his mark.  These had been given harps by God and were singing the song of Moses.  They had overcome by faith, many having been martyred for their refusal to accept his mark.  They sang this song now to God and to the Lamb, worshiping Him for His justice and righteousness in judging the beast and those who refused to repent.  God alone was holy and worthy of worship!

As they worshiped, the tabernacle of the Testimony was opened and the seven angels with the seven bowls of the wrath of God appeared.  The heavenly temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and His power!  As these faithful servants worshiped, God ordered the final seven plagues to be poured on the earth.  God’s plan to eliminate evil and rebellion would take place suddenly and swiftly.  Patient endurance had paid a big reward for those now in heaven.  The worst was ahead for those in rebellion on earth!
