December 14, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read one chapter of Revelation and the remaining two chapters of Habakkuk.

December 14: Revelation 5, Habakkuk 2, Habakkuk 3 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Revelation 5. Worship is continued in heaven and John saw a scroll, Nobody but the Lamb was worthy to take and open the scroll with seven seals. All present 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.

In Habakkuk 3 is recorded Habakkuk’s prayer, a hymn of faith.
