Tribulation Buddies

When you are struggling with life, circumstances, memories; it is easy to believe that you are alone. No one else could possibly understand what you are going through. But there are others who have the same struggles and do understand.

In Revelation 1:9 we read: I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

John wasn’t detached from the tribulations of other believers, he was their companion. He wrote these words in exile because of his faith. He, a fellow sufferer encourage the rest in the struggle with him.

We may suffer in this life but we are not alone. Christ has suffered for us, and all of sin He paid for in His suffering. We have Christ and we have each other as companions in tribulation.

Does It Matter

Does it matter where you are or what your circumstances are when you are in God’s service? No, not really!

In Revelation 1:9 we read: I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

John was on Patmos, exiled a prisoner because of his testimony of Jesus Christ. Sending him away didn’t work because on that lonely island John wrote down what He saw. The Lord was with John even in his isolation, pain and difficulty.

Wherever you are you can share in the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings and the assurance of His presence right there with you. You are not forgotten.

Time and Place

Who has been everywhere in every time at once? In Revelation 1:8 we read: I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

God is everywhere right now, and at the beginning and in the end. He sits outside the confines of His creation and the limitations of time and space. He has no point of origin or end.

Unlimited! He began all things, can end all things, has determined what has been, what is and what will be. This is God who is never surprised by our actions and has provided redemption into His eternal presence.

Every Eye Shall See

When the blind lead the blind they both fall into the ditch, or so the saying goes. There is a great spiritual blindness in this world; most have no awareness because they cannot see.

In Revelation 1:7 we read: Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

When Christ returns every eye will see Him. Everyone will see the one they have been blinded to for so long. Even those who persecuted Him and every nation that has rejected Him, will see him.

It is possible to be healed of this spiritual blindness now, by faith. If you believe in God and in His Son as the only way to know God and to be forgiven your sin, then your eyes are opened. You see more and more the reality of the eternal and spiritual.

Look At The Clouds

My mother liked to look at clouds. She would point out their beauty and the interesting colors. She could see shapes that would change with the wind. She also studied the clouds waiting for the Lord to return.

In Revelation 1:7 we read: Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

When Jesus returns with the clouds, we will be with Him. His church, His bride, His believers will be a returning cloud of witnesses with Jesus when He comes. This same Jesus will return and every eye will behold.

Kings And Priests Unto God

I was offered this great selling personal computers back in the day when that was new technology. The offer seemed good and I was excited to sell a product that I hoped to own myself one day. So off to work I went, I sold one, delivered it, collected the payment and then no commission was paid. The guy who offered me the job had no authority to do so and his boss told me to go away.

In Revelation 1:6 we read: And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. (Revelation 1:6 NKJV)

Jesus has the authority to give us a place in the presence and kingdom of God. He has made all who believe kings and priests unto God. We have royal access and are commissioned for holy service. This is for all believers, not just pastors or church officials. We can come boldly into God’s presence seeking mercy and we all serve Him as a kingdom of priests.

The Faithful Witness

If five people see an accident, there will be five different accounts as to what actually happened. Each person will remember what they see differently and each one may get some of the details wrong.

In Revelation 1:5 we read: And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, (Revelation 1:5 NKJV)

There is one person who has perfect memory, perfect observation, perfect expression and thus His witness is completely reliable. This is important because our faith relies upon what Jesus said. And, this book of Revelation is the Word of God as given through Jesus Christ. Jesus is truth and what He says is completely true.

Greetings From Heaven

In Revelation 1:4 we read: John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Jesus Christ, (Revelation 1:4-5a NKJV)

John wrote to the seven churches of his day and also to the church of today. Grace to you, and peace from God, from the Holy Spirit and from Jesus Christ. He brought greetings from heaven right to each person who will listen. It is extended through Jesus who has washed us from our sins with his own blood. Grace and peace to you who believe in God, who have been drawn by the Spirit, who have trusted in Christ as your savior. God’s favor to you. God’s peace be upon you as you have been restored in relationship with God.

The Blessing of Revelation

Did you know that you can read a book that will bless you just for reading it, for listening to what it says, for keeping what is written?

In Revelation 1:3 we read: Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. (Revelation 1:3)

The last book of the Bible contains the Revelation of Jesus Christ and everyone who reads is blessed. What does the book of Revelation say? What does it mean? Are you listening? Do you believe what God has revealed in this book? If you are listening with understanding then great spiritual riches and understanding await you there. So start reading.

How is this all going to end?

How is this all going to end? In Revelation 1 we read: The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. (Revelation 1:1-2 NKJV)

God has answered our questions for us. God gave Jesus a revelation, a complete picture of how the end of time will unfold; to show us what will come to pass. He sent His angel to John who wrote what he saw and heard. We are blessed to be able to read this for ourselves and understand what is happening in these last days.
