Passage: Revelation 2:18-29
All it takes is one mistake, one bad idea, or one divisive personality to ruin the momentum of a good thing. Even when everything seems to be going in the right direction, we are warned of the dangers just one person can bring. A church that tolerates false things will be judged, while those who hold fast to the gospel will receive a reward.
The opening verses of Revelation tell us everything we need to know about the power and importance of this book: ”The Revelation of Jesus Christ...Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.” As Christians, we wait in eager anticipation for the promised day that Jesus will return. No matter what conclusions we may draw about the meaning and timing of this Revelation, one thing is majestically clear: Jesus is the roaring Lamb who triumphs in the end!
