So, today we begin the book of Revelation. I have to admit, while I find the book fascinating, I find it difficult to read and meditate on. Over the next several days, as we go through this book, my approach will mostly be an attempt to pull nuggets out of each day’s reading as opposed to broad sweeping prophetic interpretation. If anyone would like to comment on the prophecy being presented, please feel free to do so, but I will most likely keep it pretty simple.
In today’s reading, verse 8 was the major verse that stood out to me, “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” There is great comfort (and maybe a little brain discomfort) in knowing that God has always been and always will be. God has been the ruler of the universe before our human history started and will continue to be the ruler into eternity. The fears and concerns over my future are temporary, knowing in the end God will continue to be in control.
