“Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days” (Revelation 12:6).

Time, times, and time and a half.  The Lord has each of the seasons laid out and He knows the outcome.  We have lost track of the meanings of these things and often end up guessing some literal value being conveyed.  The real value is that the Lord has laid things out and that all  seasons are in His hands.  Will you go into the wilderness with the Lord, or stay on the outside and wonder what all of these things mean?

Lord, I have heard so many prognostications over the meanings of things in this book.  They confuse me.  But I do see the parallel in Your life on earth.  For a week, weeks and week and a half, You fasted and prayed for each one of us.  You overcame the temptation of the devil for us.  You went to the cross for us.  You came back to life through the resurrection so that those who believe would be with You always.

Lord Jesus, You are the Savior, and we all need saving.  Guide me in the way of everlasting life so that I may humbly walk with You, my Lord and God.  Let me not be distracted by the prognosticators of this age.  Help me to keep a clear focus upon You.  Guide me always in the way of righteousness preparing for everlasting life with You.  Teach me how to live in the Father’s will.  Amen.
