Good morning!
Text:  Revelation 19  (Habakkuk 1-2)
Merry Christmas!  Our read through of the Bible will be over next week.  As we get to the end, we get to the account of the end of all things.  Revelation 19 is terrific as it summarizes sweeping events that will accompany Jesus’ second coming and the replacement of our fallen world with one fresh and new.  There is much to read and re-read, contemplate and get excited about.  Revelation 19:6 is a great sample:
 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out, “Hallelujah!  For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns.
We do not know when the end will come.   Hollywood portrays the end of the world as awful and scary, and it will be for those who do not know the Lord.   But for the redeemed it will be wonderful.  Its is pictured in Revelation 19:7 as a wedding party:
Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come,  and his Bride has made herself ready;  it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure
What a wondrous future this Jesus who was born on Christmas has prepared for us.  Praise Him!
