December 12, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read one chapter of Revelation and the two first chapters of Nahum.

December 12: Revelation 3, Nahum 1, Nahum 2 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Revelation 3 ends the message to the seven churches: Sardis, the church that claimed to be alive, but in God’s eyes was dead; Philadelphia, the church that kept its faith, and as a reward will be kept from the hour of trial that is coming; and finally the church of Laodicea, the church that thought it had it all figured out and prospered, when in reality they had nothing. These can be seen as seven historical churches, which they were, but also as seven types of churches as they exist today and through history. They can also be taken as seven states of the individual believer. However you take it, there is something in it for every believer, even today.

Nahum 1 speaks of God’s wrath on His enemies, in this case the coming destruction of Nineveh.

Nahum 2 prophesies of the coming fall of Nineveh.
