Week in Review – Revelation 5-6

This week, I have posting some thoughts from Revelation 5-6. The vision of John describes the problem we face because of sin but Christ the Lamb has washed us clean. There is no separation from God because Christ stands as Mediator.

Being free and ready to be used by God is a powerful thought because we can go to Him in prayer, plan out our activities, and apply our faith. There is a freedom not to satisfy our sinful nature but a freedom to faithfully serve one another.

Certain forces have been operative throughout history; war, death, martyrdom, upheaval in nature, and Divine judgment. There are some mysteries of the universe that are hard to understand but because of our acceptance of Christ, we are assured that God is with us and we will be blessed with eternal rewards.

Next week, the study will continue into Revelation 7-8. Have a great weekend my friends!
