Thursday, December 22: Revelations 10-12 ~ Cameron

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Revelations 10-12


The most interesting  part of this passage is what isn't written down. What was said between the angel and the seven thunders at the end of verse 3? I suspect that later in life, John would sit back and ponder what he heard, and wonder when God would see fit to reveal those words.

A little digging into some commentaries and it seems that speculation of what John heard is less important than the description that he was writing things down as they happened in his vision, rather than years afterward. This adds credibility to the accuracy of what is recorded. Also, by that same premise, that means John is "live tweeting" the event 2000 years before Twitter.

Interesting in chapter 12, the storey of how Satan came about, and how he lost this battle and from them on, and still today, goes about and tries to harm those that follow God. A good reminder for us to work hard to stay close to God, and not let Satan get a hold of us.

This passage is a reminder that maybe we need a dragon in our nativity set!
