Heaven will be a wonderful place! Verse 10 is a key verse to understand what the Bible means by prophecy. A lot of modern Christian commentators place the spirit or focus of prophecy of the Old Testament in the Jews. John places it in the testimony of Jesus.
We are nearly at the end of things here. Events are building towards the return of the King, the one who will appear to mete out God’s justice and to outwork His love, both with finality.
“Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.”
Jesus Himself said a few chapters back that He stands at the door and knocks. We know that those invited are those whose names have been written in the Lamb’s book of life.
So for God’s people – We are blessed!
Here at the end we see the endpoint of the roads. The narrow way ends in the marriage feast, the broad road ends in weeping and gnashing of teeth.
May this be of encouragement to us today, and an exhortation to continue to grasp every opportunity God brings to us to point people to Him.
* Dear Lord God,
Please Lord, for the sake of Your Name, please save those around us! Our loved ones, friends and family, who sit outside the camp.
Please draw them with Your irresistible grace, that they would see Jesus!
