Today’s scripture selection: Revelation 18-22
Key verses: Revelation 22:16
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give this message for the churches. I am both the source of David and the heir to his throne. I am the bright and morning star.”
Jesus of Nazareth has been called a lot of things over the years.
- A teacher
- A wonderful healer
- A blasphemer
- A zealot
- A political revolutionary
- A king
- A great example
- A lunatic
- A prophet
- A man raised from the dead
- And of course…
The Son of God.
I suppose people will argue over who Jesus is as long as this world, as we know it, exists.
But one day…all the debate will come to a close.
For the Christian – regardless of how he or she pictures that day – one thing is certain.
God will have the last word.
And on that day, maybe the descriptions used in the Book of Revelation will prove to be the best ever offered. Christ will finally be recognized as the beginning and the end; the Alpha and Omega; the “bright and morning star.”
And darkness – well, darkness will simply cease to exist.
Prayer: Come, Lord Jesus, come. AMEN.
