Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection.! (v.6)

* For those faithful to the death, the Lord promises three things:
1. Protection from the second death,
2. To be a priest (able to go directly to God for grace and introduce the Lord to others),
3. To reign with Christ in a close relationship.
Striving for oneself is ultimately a dream; striving for Christ is never in vain!

Time For The Marriage Supper! Ark Channel 28/12/2022 Wed Revelation 19

Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” (v7)

* “The bride” represents the church, marriage represents the union with Christ. We are promised to Christ, but no one knows when the Lord will come for us. The best thing to do now is to cleanse ourselves, keep ourselves in God’s love, and wait for His return!

God Has Remembered Her Iniquities! Ark Channel 27/12/2022 Tue Revelation 18

…“Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. (v4)

* There is a lament in the book of Revelation about the fall of the great city of Babylon. Babylon symbolises the Antichrist system, a mixture of all the evil influences of greed, indulgence, pride, sin, and power. We are to flee from greed and lust, and to repent in humility and mourning.

Relevation 18:1-24

* Last month I was quarantined at home for 7 days. In my small room, I had headaches for the first 2 days and was depressed in the last 2 days. One night at 5am, a hymn came to me “United with the Lord, is love is poetry.” Immediately I was enlightened and felt the Lord’s love again, filled with warmth. (a sinner saved by grace/HK)

…and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.” (v14)

* Note 6 comparisons in Revelation:
- The servants of God sealed by God vs the men sealed by the beast.
- Faithful church vs adulterous harlot.
- Tribes and nations redeemed by the blood of the Lord vs the many people and nations of the waters.
- Those with names written in the Book of Life vs those whose names are not written there.
- The worship in heaven vs the suffering on earth.
- The triumph of the Kingdom of God vs the perdition of the kingdom of the devil.

Righteous are Your Judgments Sunday Hope 25/12/2022 Revelation 16

“Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” (v15)

* God’s judgment of heaven and earth and the nature (v. 1-9), plus God’s judgment of the whole world (v. 10-21). How righteous! How true! These are the acts of God in response to the incessant prayers of a vast multitude of His believers! Don’t be frustrated, but keep a close watch on the meticulous timetable of God.

…Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints! (v3)

* Chapter 15 of Revelation narrates the seven angels holding the final seven plagues. As the wickedness of humankind overflows, God will pour out His judgment. At the same time, God allows us to see a vision of overcomers standing on the sea of glass, singing in joy and praising God. The pilgrims who are despised by the world on earth are eventually the champions in heaven!

* At the end of the year, let us sing out our experiences of living with the Lord, not someone else’s story, but our own encounter with the Lord, knowing the Lord, serving the Lord, and following the Lord. With new experiences in life, there is no way not to sing out!

Relevation 14:1-20

* Sri Lanka, Brother Fernando – Our country is still in economic difficulty, many industries are bleak, prices are soaring, many people are leaving the country, and there are also many who are displaced abroad… The church is doing her best to assist the poor in various aspects, and this year’s gospel camps are greatly blessed, with many young people committed to return to the Lord (letter excerpt).

All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world. (v.8)

* Sea beasts and land beasts are assistants of Satan, representing the evil forces that have repeatedly appeared in history, deceiving people and seeking the worship of the world! Be careful, miracles may not be from God’s cards!

* The vision in Revelation 12 reveals the continual hardship of God’s people is caused by the ravages of the devil. The woman represents all of God’s people. Satan has repeatedly tried to destroy her but failed and has been cast to the ground!

* God’s scroll is sweet in our mouth sweet and bitter in our stomach. He who is reconciled to God and His truth is as sweet as honey. But the teaching of reproof brings judgment, righteous anger, sorrow and makes us repent in bitterness.

* The Final Judgement is frightening, targeting those without the seal of God on their foreheads. Some remain unrepentant and relentless; some are incapacitated both to live and to die! God is angry yet forgiving, and human hearts are hardened and arrogant!

Prayers of All the Saints! – Ark Channel 17/12/2022 Saturday Revelation 8

… He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne (v3)

* The seventh seal is going to be opened in heaven, with onset of God’s judgment. But as a prelude there will be silence of half an hour. It is terrifying when God is completely silent! Don’t forget that when the earth was without form, and void, when darkness was on the face of the deep, the Spirit of God still was hovering over the face of the waters (See Genesis 1:1-2).

Relevation 8:1-13

* Our beloved sister Chiu Auyeung Pik / 趙歐陽璧 went to be with the LORD in Toronto on December 10. She lived to 100. She loved the souls of people, and was bold to share the love of our LORD. She was caring to her friends and relatives, and led many people to the LORD (She is a loyal reader of the Ark Channel, and was persistent in her prayers for brothers and sisters in the LORD all over the world).

And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” (v10)

* One day, tears will be wiped away, grievances will be redressed, and the soul will be comforted. The book of Revelation foreshadows the tenderness of the Great Shepherd. Every time we feel that we can’t go on, Christ’s grace will waltz in at some moment to assure us of His love and care, never stopping.

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. (v1)

* The CCV’s introduction to Revelation states: History will end, evil will end, wars will end, sufferings will ultimately end… This news of the end gives us new hope for the ultimate. The Lamb of God will ultimately reign, while all will be judged. This ultimate judgment is something no man can escape and is the ultimate answer to all of our sufferings and injustices experienced. Only with this ultimatum can our faith be completed.

* Peterson says when you read Revelation, you will discover yourself participating in a multi-facet worship! The four living creatures sing holy (chapter 4), the twenty four elders join in to praise; the saved ones stand together to sing the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb (chapter 15). Through the ages, there has never been a time that lends itself to a life of worship. The heart of worship always comes and continues in adversity!

Revelation 20

* A quick note of thanksgiving at year end: One unemployed, trusted in God, changed career and got a new job… Wife forced to work to sustain the family, prayed for 7 days and got a job. God will never forsake! A sister who has been caring for her mother who passed away this year at the age of 95. She diligently adapted to a new way of life and found time to finish reading the 12 books of minor prophet, benefitted much. A member of the body underwent chemo 17 times, worried about the family but was comforted by God all the way (to be continued)
