December 18, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read one chapter of Revelation and the last chapter of Haggai.

December 18: Revelation 9, Haggai 2 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Revelation 9.By now we are deep into the last half of the tribulation, the fifth trumpet sounded and the locusts from the bottomless pit are released. Then the sixth trumpet sounded, featuring the angels from the Euphrates doing horrendous deeds. An army of two hundred million mounted troops were released to kill a third of mankind. At the time of John the total world population was about 300 million!

Haggai 2 describes the coming glory of God’s house, but the people are defiled. Nevertheless God promises a  future blessing with Zerubbabel chosen like God’s signet ring.
