“Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children” Ephesians 5:1 NIV



 1 The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, 2 who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.

Greetings and Doxology
4 John,
   To the seven churches in the province of Asia:

   Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.

   To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, 6 and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.

 7 “Look, he is coming with the clouds,”
   and “every eye will see him, 
even those who pierced him”; 
   and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.”
            So shall it be! Amen.

8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

This makes me feel joyful. Thanks for sharing.

Makes me think of the old fashioned hymn:
Lo, he comes with clouds descending
Once for favoured sinners slain

Some of these verses remind of how G.F. Handel has put them to such appropiate muisc in the Messiah.

*And the Glory, THE GLORY of the LORD, and everyone shall see it*.....beautiful music of God's word. Handel did wonderful...

Wonderful devotion, Sue. It makes me think of the cross and all that was accomplished there for us - our debt paid in full, heirs of the King, adoption into His family.................
