The Revelation Given to John by Jesus Through the Angel
The preacher[i] cautions us to enthusiastically guard clear thinking and common sense. There is a blessing for devotedly securing unobstructed cogitating and good judgment – the blessing of God’s presence and security.
The book of Revelation has the same message. Nothing has happened, is happening, or will happen that God doesn’t know about. He uses the events of our lives, that would otherwise be frightening and harmful, to work toward a joyful future for his beloved. Meanwhile we can count on his comforting presence throughout our lives, in both joy and sorrow.[ii]
As we study the book of Revelation, it is important to remember we are the children of God’s great love. We are not appointed to wrath[iii]but have been saved from the wrath to come by the blood of Yeshua Ha Mashiach/Jesus Christ.[iv]
We have the seal (stamp) of God’s protection[v]on us. That doesn’t mean we won’t have to go through hard trails[vi]but we can rest in the sure knowledge that victory is ours[vii]through Yeshua Ha Mashiach/ Messiah Jesus.
