Great Book -- Great Ending

Revelations 18-20, Proverbs 31


Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Revelation 19:6-7


It seems strange to wrap up what was begun last January—to read the entire Bible. As I love a good novel where everything is wrapped up in the end, so provides us a glimpse of the end of time. That ending is like the wedding day that finally arrives. Jesus, the groom, defeats all evil so there is no one to mess up the day and we, his bride, finally reach that day when we can celebrate coming together with him. As we wait for our groom to come for us (how weddings worked in the 1st century) let us prepare ourselves for him. This is both an ending (to life as we know it on earth) and an eternal beginning (heaven).
