He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

– Revelation 21:5

Revelation 21 brings the promise of a “new heaven,” a “new earth,” and a “new Jerusalem.” Here the Alpha and the Omega makes “all things new.” And in this new (or renewed) creation, “there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4).

Devotional

Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

– Revelation 20:14-15

It has been said that “those who are born once will die twice,” and “those that are born twice will die once.” Revelation 20:14-15 are keys to solving this riddle.

Jesus said, “You must be born again” or you “cannot see the kingdom of God.” Thus the one that is born of flesh, and born again by the Spirit, will only die once, and not taste the second death. But those that are not born anew by the Spirit of God, will not only die a physical death, but at the judgment, they will die a second time in “the lake of fire.”

“Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’

– John 3:7

Devotional

“Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!”

– Revelation 18:20

It is a frightening picture, and one we do not often linger upon, but our God is a God of justice (Isaiah 30:18). He will one day mollify His justice. That being the case, it is wise that you be “found in Him, not having (and relying upon) your own righteousness” (Philippians 3:9). For only in Christ is the justice of God satisfied. Only in Him are we justified. Only in Him do we find refuge from the coming day of God’s just vengeance.

Devotional

“Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”

– Revelation 16:15

Paul, in his first letter to the Thessalonians, used similar language when he wrote, “For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night” (1 Thes. 5:2). Paul there also wrote, “But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief” (1 Thes. 5:4).

Christian, be watchful and ready for the coming of the day of the Lord, so that you are not taken, unaware.

Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.

– Revelation 14:14

One day the Son of Man, with the golden crown upon His head, will harvest His people from the earth, to be with Him for eternity. Many Christians look to this as the magnificent event, referred to as the Rapture. While there are debates about the exact timing of its happening, there is a belief by many that it will one day come. If so, I sure am looking forward to the day when Jesus gathers His people unto Himself.

Revelation 13

Or Read the Passage Here

Devotional

All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

– Revelation 13:8

Revelation 13 has much to say about an anti-christ figure, who many believe is still yet to come. But in the midst of this anti-christ discussion we read of the “Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”

This informs us that God’s redemptive plan, ultimately fulfilled through the Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, was a plan that God laid from the very beginning of creation. This means that God’s redemptive plan, in Jesus, was not plan “B” after the fall of Genesis 3. Jesus, and His redemptive sacrifice, was always God’s plan “A.”
