Words from the Heart for Tuesday December 31st, 2019
He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
Revelation 22:20-21 (NKJV)
Come, Lord Jesus
The Constitution of Canada is based primarily on two documents – the Constitution Acts of 1867 and 1982. All laws, rules, and practices that structure the way the Canadian political system runs add up to the “constitution” of Canada. The Constitution includes a great many statutes, orders-in-council, and judicial decisions that interpret these documents. In addition, there are informal rules, called constitutional conventions, that regulate how our political actors behave. Finally, there are some traditions and customs that may not be obligatory but are followed.
I love how the Bible ends. If you read the last chapters of Revelation you will find the same themes as the first chapters of Genesis. There is in both, creation, a garden, a river, a bridegroom and bride, and a tree. God does an amazing job of bookmarking His revelation in the Bible. And at the very end there is the great promise, once again, of the second coming of Jesus Christ. Revelation 22:20-21 says, “He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.” This is the great hope of the follower of Jesus. The apostle John knew this – he was there at Jesus ascension when the two men in white told them that just as they had seen Jesus go, they would see Him come again. In the Revelation of John, the apostle got a unique glimpse into all that will take place at the end of time. And he hears the voice of Jesus, that voice he had heard and loved so often, promising His return. With John, we reply to the voice of the Master, “Amen. Come Lord Jesus.”
These have been words from the heart.
