The Battle For Eternity Part 1

Image

When dark clouds appear in the sky, you know a storm is on its way. You see lightning and hear thunder as the storm rages. And when the wind blows through those clouds and light from the sun breaks through the darkness, the atmosphere is calm and serene once again.

In Week 6, Days 1-3 of A Heart To See Forever, “The Battle For Eternity,” we are studying Revelation 6. In this chapter, we are now going to see the seals come off of the book that holds “the rest of the story.” God does, indeed, have a plan and He will fulfill all His Word. But as we read about all these events before they occur, we need to step back, and take a long look at God’s ultimate plan and purpose. In Day 1 of Week 6 we have the opportunity to look at numerous verses that show us God’s great desire to be our God and for us to be His people. And we see how He ultimately brings about that purpose in Revelation 21:3 “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them.”

Friend, your relationship with God is of utmost importance to God. He wants you for Himself. Will you take time even today to draw near to Him? Think about those words in James 4:8, “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.” What an amazing promise. God gives His Word to encourage you, give you hope, and bring you into a close, loving, vibrant relationship with Him.

Think about these words from Walt Kaiser in Yield Yourself To God in a A Heart To See Forever this week:

Our being highly informed about the future will serve little good if it does not simultaneously result in a whole different orientation of our lives and our actions. Prophecy is not a sterile remote subject which has an interesting trivia list. It is a call to action based on the certainty of the future acts of God in space and time. It is a call to repentance based on the present drift of an evil society and a backsliding church. It is a call to faith and belief in the living God who is doing all things well after the counsel of his own wise and holy will.

As we continue on through Revelation, we will read “the rest of the story.” God gives us a long look into the future for a reason. He wants us — our love, our devotion, our hearts, our lives — all of us. So today, dear friend, will you lay out your heart and life before Him, and love and trust Him?
