Revelation is about the New Testament’s central conflict: the lordship of Christ versus the lordship of Caesar.
In nine visions John describes a God whose power is that of a lamb, who is worthy to redeem the universe. Love unleashes the forces that conquer evil.
When human history ends, God’s dream is fulfilled. A sacred city descends from heaven, the crystalline river flowing through its center, water the world with harmony and wholeness, where people from every tribe and nation live forever in goodness.
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. Amen.
- What does it look like to water the world with harmony and wholeness?
