Today we read one chapter of Revelation , the last chapter of Nahum and the first chapter of Habakkuk
December 13: Revelation 4, Nahum 3, Habakkuk 1 (click on the chapter to begin reading).
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.
Nahum 3. The prophet Nahum ends with a “woe to Nineveh.”
Habakkuk 1 begins with the prophet’s first complaint and the LORD’s reply. After that the prophet pours out his second complaint.
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.
