Have you ever been driving down a road and there is a Dead-End” sign, or maybe a “Maintenance Ends”, or the forbidding “Do Not Enter” sign? What do you do? If you don’t know the area, if you are rational in your thinking you ponder what you will encounter on that path and you normally change your route. But if you are stiff-necked and won’t have your thoughts changed you continue on into what many times is “Trouble”. Then you must live with your decision. Remember it wasn’t like you weren’t warned.
The Biblical book of “Revelation” is truly a warning sign on our journey of life. Through John’s “revelation” of the end times, God reveals what will happen in the final days for those who continue on the path of worldly direction. Focused on sinful desires and pleasures of the flesh. Believing they are here to conquer and destroy and get whatever their hearts desire. Looking past the words of the Creator of the Universe and believing in their own wisdom.
The writing can be somewhat convicting (the letters to the churches), somewhat confusing (the imagery of the beasts and so on), somewhat frightening (the descriptions in the plagues and the bowls of wrath). But the writings are also enlightening and full of joy when we read of the “New Heaven and a New Earth”.
Our God is so amazing. He gave us life, he gave us a perfect place to live, He offers us Eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ. And to top it all off He gives us the complete plan to life in His words in the Bible.
So when you are going thru life and you wonder what the future holds, try looking for the answers in the written word of our God. He knows we will need a “True North” for guidance as the world continually tries to say it knows all the answers. It is like those road signs, someone who knew what was ahead is warning us of what could happen if we don’t change our direction. God is the only one who knows what lies ahead. Trust in His plan and you will see a New Heaven and New Earth, His will be done. Woo Hoo I can’t wait.
