I Know How it Ends
There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever. (Revelation 22:3-5)
I finished reading Revelation again this morning. As I read the last chapter, three thoughts flowed into my mind, one on top of the other:
"In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me?" (from Psalm 56)
"Oh death! Where is your victory? Oh death, where is your sting?" (from 1 Corinthians 15);
I even rejoiced aloud, "what can the devil himself do to me?"
Although terrible and evil things are overtaking our nation and our world, I thank God I’ve read the last chapter of the Book.
I know how it ends.
