Putting God's Word into Practice…

Revelation 22:1-5 ~ Faith Made Sight

on August 19, 2014

Have you ever seen a talk show or a news segment when someone who has been rescued from certain death is on, and the producer brings out the one who saved their life to meet face-to-face for the first time?  Everyone’s tears are flowing because of the fullness of joy and gratitude of the experience.  Now multiply that times a billion…The One who died to save our lives–the One who rescued us forever–WE WILL SEE HIS FACE!

Revelation means revealing or unveiling.  In the case of this book, it is the unveiling of Jesus!  John tries his best to describe Jesus in chapter one:  “…one like the son of man clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest.  The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow.  His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength.” (Revelation 1:13-16)  That description will just have to hold us over for now knowing that someday WE WILL SEE HIS FACE!!!

WE WILL SEE HIS FACE!  Our Rescuer!  Our Redeemer! Our Savior! And we will worship Him!!!

No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him.  And THEY WILL SEE HIS FACE, and his name will be written on their foreheads. And there will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever. (Revelation 22:3-5)
