Kids are a blessing! There are days when parenting seems easy, but on other days, parenting leaves us looking for answers. Unfortunately, kids don’t come with instructions.
We have reached the book of Revelation in our daily Bible reading! Let’s just admit it - Revelation is a very strange book. It’s full of angels and demons, lions and lambs, horses and dragons, ghouls, ghosts, and beasts. It’s a letter that reads more like a live drama that Jesus puts on for John during his time of worship. Traditionally, the last book of the Bible has been called “The Revelation to John”, but the first verse actually begins with the words “The Revelation of Jesus Christ.” It’s a revelation of Jesus, by Jesus, and about Jesus Christ. The title is not “Revelations” - even though there is a series of dramatic revelations. Literally, the title means “The Apocalypse.” Sadly, in our time the word “apocalypse” has come to mean, “Oh no! Something terrible is about to happen!” But when Revelation was written, the word simply meant “unveiling”, akin to lifting a cover off a box or pulling back a curtain in the theatre, 'opening up' or 'breaking through.' God gave Revelation to John to show his servants the things that must soon take place.” (v. 1). The book closes by telling the reader that there is a curse if you add or take away from the words in this prophecy - plagues will come in your life, and you will lose your share in the tree of life and the holy city described in this book - (that’s like, heaven!). I don’t know about you, but I want to be a recipient of the blessing, not the curse.
