What an exciting lesson we have this week! The King Returns!!!! Hallelujah! Dr. Missler suggests studying the book of Revelation from an aspect of praise. I think this is a great suggestion! We think of prophecy and doom when we think of Revelation, for sure. But there is some of the more wonderful worship going on in these pages.
I really want to take more time to study the Jewish wedding. Right now, as the Bride of Christ, the church is betrothed and waiting for her Husband to finish the addition He is building onto His Father’s house. When it is complete, He will return for His bride in a surprise gathering that will involve a wedding ceremony and a feast! In the meantime, we must prepare ourselves for His imminent return. Also known as the rapture.
But that isn’t what’s taking place, here. Now, the King is returning to the earth WITH the saints! Now, He is coming to conquer and to rule. He is coming to claim that throne of David that He was promised. And this isn’t the end. He will rule on earth for 1000 years! I can’t even imagine. Can you?
Homework for next time: Read chapter 20. Read Isaiah 65. Will there be a literal “Millenium”?
