Day 183: Revelation 19-22

The fourfold Hallelujah.  The coming of Christ explained.  Satan is bound.  Everyone must be judged.  There will be a new heaven and a new earth.  The new Jerusalem.  The River and the Tree of Life revealed.  13“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

Congratulations! You did it! Happy New Year and God Bless you!

Day 179: 1 John 3 – Jude

We are to love one another in christian love.  Beware of false prophets, test them, do not follow them.  God is love, we must love one another.  This point is stressed over and over.  “4For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith.”  Beware those who do not acknowledge God as Savior.  “Keep yourself in the love of God”

Day 178: 2 Peter – 1 John 2

We should strive to grow in christian virtue.  Beware of false prophets.  It is better to never have known the gospel, than to know it and turn away from it.  The new heaven and the new earth are described.  The Word of Life was sent to us in the form of Jesus.  “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”  Christ is our advocate, the Word of God abides in you and you have overcome the evil one.  Do not love the world, do not be of this world.  We are offered the promise of eternal life with our Lord.

Day 177: 1 Peter

We have been redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ.  The word of the Lord endures forever.  Keep yourself holy and pure as an example to the Gentiles of my excellencies.  Honor those in authority, God finds favor with those who are patient in their suffering.  Christ is our example of how to endure.  Wives be subject to your husbands, husbands live with your wives in gentleness.  Be steadfast in your love.  Do not be surprised by your sufferings, Christ also suffered.  You should serve God willingly, not by force.

Day 176: James

Faith without works is dead.  The tongue is described as a restless evil, full of poison that cannot be tamed.  “Submit therefore to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.”  ” 19My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth and one turns him back,20let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.”

Day 175: Hebrews 8-13

We now have a better ministry.  The Lord has given us a new covenant.  “And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,  28so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.”  Jesus covered our sins with His blood, He paid the price, therefore we cannot be forgiven through the blood of animals.  We need to be encouraging each other to follow God’s path.   “39But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.”  We are given countless examples of faith throughout the bible.  The Father’s discipline.  “Our God is a consuming fire.”  Christ is changeless.
