October 29, 2022 - Revelation 19-22

You know, every story has to end. And we have come to the end of our story. From the servants of the Lord, John heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out, ‘Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns’” (19:6). Of course, he has always reigned; he is “King of kings and Lord of lords” (19:16). John continues, “And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore’” (21:2-4).


“[T]he throne of God and of the Lamb will be in [the city], and his servants will worship him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and eve”" (22:3-5).


And so, the story ends, but does not really end. It just keeps on going forever and ever!


Soon and very soon we are goin’ to see the King,

Soon and very soon we are goin’ to see the King,

Soon and very soon we are goin’ to see the King,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

we are goin’ to see the King!


No more cryin’ there we are goin’ to see the King,

No more cryin’ there we are goin’ to see the King,

No more cryin’ there we are goin’ to see the King,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

we are goin’ to see the King! --Andraé Crouch (1976)

It seems appropriate that today’s Bible reading coincides with our kickoff at Baxter (and many other Southern Baptist churches) of a special season: the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for Internation
