Revelation 5: 3 But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. 4 I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. 5 Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
Like the apostle John in this beautiful vision, I am all too often driven to despair as I watch the self-destructive nature of the people all around me. Notwithstanding all of the cruelty abroad in the world, and the presence of evil everywhere I look, when I read this passage and am reminded the Jesus has already conquered all of the mess we have gotten ourselves into I am comforted and have hope. But it’s a sort of good news bad news story. Things will get worse before they get better. I’m not going to sit here and presume to express any particular slant on the “scheduling” of the apocalypse. My Bible tells me that’s none of my business. (Acts 1:7, 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3) I do believe that what the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy has come true before our very eyes. (2 Timothy 3:1-9) And it will get worse, much worse. But as Jesus said to the disciples, “be of good cheer, for I have over come the world.” (John 16:33) I suppose you could call me more of a “pan-millenialist. I believe, knowing what I know things will all pan out in the end.
