You must know the man who said, “We shall go on to the end…we shall never surrender,” before you can really understand England’s part in World War II. It was Sir Winston Churchill’s determination, courage, and statesmanship which brought victory to England when defeat seemed almost certain. Likewise, you must know the Sovereign Lord who dominates all that is in the book of Revelation to best understand what is described there.
As you read this final book of the Bible you’ll see Jesus Christ as the Sovereign Lord of time as well as of the Church. He is also the Sovereign Lord of heaven, earth and eternity.
Modern man trifles with time, cares little about the Church, is humorous about heaven, pollutes the earth, and tries to evade eternity. But there’s coming a day when we must stand alone before the Sovereign Lord of all and give an accounting of the way we lived our lives. There’ll be no more trifling, heedlessness, joking, carelessness or evading then.
So let’s prepare to meet our Sovereign Lord by surrendering to Him now and serving Him till the end. There are many warnings to heed, promises to claim, and commands to obey if we want to be ready for that great day.
Read this last book of the Bible carefully and prayerfully. Note all the different names and descriptions of Jesus Christ and meditate on them. Worship Him for who He is revealed to be. This will enrich your life. Remember, this book is, The Revelation of Jesus Christ.
