“I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind” (Revelation 6:12-13)
Death. It is the final part of the journey from this age to the next. Is this talking about what is to come in this age, or about what happens in the moment of death? We shall find out. More important is whether you are in the grace of Jesus. Are you walking with Him or still playing the game of the rebellion in this age? Come, live into the promise of the Lord and look forward to what is coming rather than looking forward with dread.
Lord, people in this age play games, but in death one sees fear in those who do not believe. Let me not avoid the reality of death but see that I too shall pass through and then find out what all of this means. The most important thing is that I follow You and walk with You always. Guide me. Lord. on the path of salvation. Guide me to always be walking with You, my Lord and my God. Guide me to live this new life of faith which You have given me.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for the grace and faith I need to not fear the little death. I do not relish the idea, but I know it will come. Help me to have great hope in what You have promised. Lead me to live this life of faith boldly and to be guided by Your Spirit to grow into Your likeness. Whether this verse refers to an end time prophecy, the end of my time, or both, keep my eyes upon You above all things. Amen.
