Today we read one chapter of Revelation and two chapters of Habakkuk.
December 14: Revelation 5, Habakkuk 2, Habakkuk 3 (click on the chapter to begin reading).
Revelation 5. Worship continued in heaven and John saw a scroll, Nobody but the Lamb was worthy to take and open the scroll with seven seals. All broke out in praise, singing a new song, saying, “Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood” and “Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.”
Habakkuk 2. The LORD answered the prophet to his second complaint. It contains this gem, just as valid today as it was then: “The just shall live by his faith“. On the other hand there was promised more woe to the wicked.
Habakkuk 3 recorded Habakkuk’s prayer, a hymn of faith.

Revelation 4. John is shown the throne room of Heaven. Someone is sitting on the throne. A rainbow is over it, 24 elders are around it, in the front are seven lamps, representing the seven-fold spirit of God. Around it are also four creatures, one like a lion, representing Jesus as king (Matthew), one like an ox representing Jesus as a servant (Mark), one with the face of man representing the humanity of Christ (Luke), and the fourth like an eagle representing Jesus is God (John). All sing or say praises, a true worship.
