Passage: Revelation 19:11-21
Great comeback stories only exist because we never knew how things would end. Those last second shots, or the miraculous putt on the 18th green, or the final Hail Mary – all of those lose some suspense if you know the end before the beginning. Jesus has promised us he will return. From the earliest days of creation, God declared His plans for victory. The great battle belongs to the Lord!
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!
