October 22, 2021 – Revelation 11-14

John sees many troubles for the earth and its inhabitants. The great dragon, Satan, is cast down and in his wrath ravages many. A great beast arises and, armed with power given by Satan, fights against God and makes war on the saints. And a second beast! In the midst of all this, twice, the Lord’s people are told to persevere. “Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints” (13:10) & “Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus” (14:12). And, of course, the saints are able to persevere because “the kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever” (11:15).


Isn’t it good to know the ultimate outcome of all this and to know a sure hope! “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, who is and who was, for you have taken your great power and begun to reign. The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth” (11:17,18).


Crown the Savior! Angels crown him!

Rich the trophies Jesus brings;

on the seat of pow’r enthrone him

while the vault of heaven rings.

Crown him! Crown him!

Crown him! Crown him!

Crown the Savior, King of kings. -- Thomas Kelly (1809)
