Revelation 1-3 – Day 4

Revelation 1:7-8

Look, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all peoples on earth will mourn because of Him. So shall it be! Amen.

The Thought

This one verse contains quotations from two Old Testament prophets. It is always interesting to see how the Bible holds together in what it tells us. John must have known the scriptures and as he spent hours alone during his time on Patmos, he had ample opportunity to consider the way Jesus fulfilled so many prophecies.

Daniel 7:13 tells us that in his vision Daniel saw One like a son of man coming with the clouds of Heaven. That is what John was waiting for and expecting to see.

If we read Zechariah 12:10 and the surrounding verses spoken about Jerusalem we hear the sadness in the voice of God as He says: They will look on Me, the one they have pierced and they will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only child.

As John was experiencing his visions, he must have been thinking that the return of Jesus would be seen at any moment. He could not have imagined that God’s plan stretched more than two thousand years into the future.

Many today are saying we are living in the last days. What do you think? What is God saying?


Read Daniel 7 or Zechariah 12 or both, today and praise God that His words come true. The chapter in Zechariah speaks to much of what is happening in our day. Jerusalem needs our prayers.

Think today what your attitude would be if you had to spend a long time in solitary confinement. Do you know enough of the Bible to be able to remember verses that could encourage you in difficult times.
