Daily Post: Revelation
Those of you reading today who know me well, may think I will shamelessly use this article to promote my recently published commentary/bible study on the Book of Revelation. Perhaps I will, but that will come later in the article, if at all. Subtle huh?
Revelation as a concept is about information (true or false) coming to light in various forms, which was not previously known. It is in fact what the whole James Comey testimony is all about… everyone wants to hear about the secret conversations and dialogue between the former FBI director and President Trump. Regardless of your particular stance on the substantive issues, there has been no “smoking gun” revelation. In fact, on the face of it, at least as I evaluate what’s been said, Comey has all but come out and said “the President did nothing illegal.” Yet it still appears to me that the entire process was, and continues to be, driven by the agenda to discredit Donald Trump as our President. Rumor mills and rumor mongering are bad enough, but when journalists become nothing more than mouth pieces for the political elite on both sides of the aisle, spewing and spuriously spreading fake news, or worse treasonous ideas, somethings gotta give!
Divulging information which is not intended to be revealed, such as classified data of any kind, is at the very least suspicious, because one has to ask “why was this shared?” James Comey has admitted to leaking his memos to his friend, and doing so with the full knowledge that he, Comey, could then not prevent them from being revealed publicly. Is this act alone not a crime? Politics are the bane of my existence and why I choose to listen as little as possible to self-proclaimed pundits and their ego-based opinions about what is or is not true in Washington these days. Who will save us from this odious quagmire? Clearly we can’t save ourselves.
But isn’t that what the Bible reveals to mankind in the first place? If Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, and those first generations of humanity had been capable of saving themselves from self-destruction, I’m quite sure they would have. But the first couple was banished from the Garden, and one of the first brothers killed the other, all out of an ego-centric mindset that they were above God’s rules. Things haven’t gotten any better since. In fact, one might say we are far, far removed from what God intended for mankind to be. God has revealed in Scripture just how far He is willing to go to help mankind live as He designed us to live. First God chose a man, Noah, to preserve the various species of creation when God judged the evil men in the world through a flood. Then God chose a man, Abraham, to establish a nation of people who would be God’s people declaring God’s glory and blessing to the world. When that failed, because the people failed, God sent His own Son, Jesus, to reveal the full plan of God’s great love for mankind.
God has divulged, disseminated, and declared His love for all mankind, yet men and women alike continue to deny His existence. Our world is so filled with hate, contempt, and evil, it could be said that God doesn’t recognize the place anymore. Those who continue in their faithful following of God’s revelation, and who do so with great resolve, are finding it increasingly difficult to exist on this hostile planet. Who will save us from this morass of self-deluded evil?
God’s revelation is clear.
Then the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”
For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.
The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John, who testified to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.
From the very beginning until the very end, God’s marvelous grace has been divulged, disseminated, and declared to mankind. The only thing which will save us from the horrible mess we’ve created, is the coming of Jesus Christ the King. Until then, we will witness continued repetition of the colossal errors committed to, and fed by, the human hunger for power, prestige, and position. One day, ALL will bow before the King of the universe, this I declare to you from the authority of Scripture.
For it is written, “AS I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL GIVE PRAISE TO GOD.”
For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
