Today is the grand finale in the series Celebrating Jesus as He revealed Himself in “Revelation”. We’re going to go to the last few chapters of the book to see who Jesus will be. I trust these last 4 revelations will cause your faith to arise, your hope to be established and your love for Jesus to be energized!
He is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords Rev 19:16 Jesus is the returning King. We remember and celebrate His first coming as a babe. Soon He’ll come as the victorious “King of Kings and Lord of Lords”! Satan, his tactics and cohorts whom He defeated at the cross will be banished to eternal hell.
He is God with us, Emmanuel Rev 21:3, 22-23 In Revelation 1, we saw Jesus as the unseen reality, the unseen presence in His church. Here, He becomes seen. The Faithful and True reality who removes all crying, pain, mourning and death. The Glorious reality who removes the need for a temple or for the sun or moon. God with us, Emmanuel!
He is the Alpha & Omega, the Beginning & the End, the First & the Last Rev 21:6 Our God, our King, Jesus; always was, always is and always will be! A firm foundation! A forever God. We can fully trust Him! He is making all things new. We can stand with the overcomers because we know who holds our future!
He is the Bright Morning Star Rev 22:16 The promise of a new day! Jesus coming as a babe some 2000 years ago promised a new day for those of that time and for us who choose to believe and follow Him today. A new day dawned when Jesus rose from the dead! And there’s more! Jesus, as the Bright Morning Star in Revelation presents great hope, in that a new day will dawn when He comes again to take us, His followers, to be with Him forever! A new day that promises inconceivable joy, everlasting peace, overflowing worship and eternal life in heaven with God!
I don’t know about you, but all this just makes me want to stand and shout! What an amazing God we serve! This year I want to celebrate Jesus with thanksgiving for who He is and all that He’s done and with great hope for all He will yet be and do!! Will you join me? Because as we do, His glory will be seen on us. His light will shine from us, drawing the unsaved, the lost and hopeless among us, to salvation, freedom and to NEW, REAL & EVERLASTING LIFE! That’s what Jesus is all about! He’s the Savior of the world.
“Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give Him the glory” Rev 19:6-7
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
