December 3 - 9
Monday, 12/3, Rev 10: As the return of Christ is coming closer and closer, His church must continue living by faith for there are many mysteries of God that we do not understand; however, we must trust God in what His plan is. In addition, as we get closer to His return, we must continue to tell those who do not know Christ of what He has done for them so that they can experience eternal life. Pray that God continues to work in you, that you stay in His word and follow His commands of evangelism and discipleship.
Tuesday, 12/4, Rev 11: We see the two witnesses here testifying to the up and coming judgement of Christ. This section shows also that there are many people who will reject their testimony. But like the two witnesses, we also must continue testifying to those who do not know Christ. We do not need to be afraid of what will happen to us testifying because our true home is with Jesus; and if someone were to take our physical life, we will have eternal life at that point with Jesus. Pray that God continue to work in our hearts as we continue telling others of Christ with confidence and boldness.
Wednesday, 12/5, Rev 12: Jesus’ death and resurrection were the final blows to Satan, and showed that death and Satan have no control over us. Satan still is around us every day, trying to deceive us and trying to block and blind the hearts and minds of those who don’t know Jesus yet, to prevent them from understanding and accepting what He has done for us. Pray that God continues to strengthen you in resisting the acts of deception from Satan that prevents your witnessing and testimony from reaching those who don’t know Jesus yet.
Thursday, 12/6, Rev 13: Satan and his demons are patrolling the earth today, and we are in a constant battle with the evil forces of the world. But we have the Word of God to help us fight these forces, and we have Jesus to help us persevere through these ongoing tribulations. Let’s rejoice and praise God for the weapon, His Word, He has given us that we can continue to fight the enemy, but also to flee as God has always provided ways out of temptations that Satan tries to apply on us.
Friday, 12/7, Rev 14: The second coming of Christ is near. We need to be ready. Let us heed the words of the angel who said, “Fear God and give him glory…..”. We must give God all the glory for the gift that He gave us in His Son, and how He protects us and provides for us every day of our life. He loves us immensely, so let’s glorify God in all His might.
Saturday, 12/8, Rev 15: We see in chapter 15 a song sung by those who had defeated “the beast”. It is possible that these are ones who were martyred for the faith, but by doing so, they have achieved eternal life which is our ultimate victory. Such an amazing song, that we think of all of the wonderful deeds God has done; and we know His ways are just. We know in the end all nations will bow down to our Lord, as Paul had indicated earlier. Let us remember to glorify God in our every day life, and remember the blessings he has bestowed upon you.
Sunday, 12/9, Rev 16: Jesus is coming again, and this time He will be coming for His church. He will also be coming to judge those who have not accepted Him as their Savior. He is being patient, however, and giving everyone every chance to turn from their wicked ways and repent, and to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Remain faithful to Him as you follow His commands. Continue to tell others about Jesus. Pray for those you talk to and have not accepted Jesus; pray that the Spirit will work in them and to change their hearts. But let’s also pray that we are looking for Jesus to come back soon, that we, who have turned to Him as our Savior, will finally be able to be with Him forever.
