Sneak Peak

Movies production collectionThe movie trailer has become quite popular, as the use of the Internet has grown. I no longer have to watch a television commercial about a certain movie that is coming out. I can go online and watch the trailer. If I really need to know the storyline of the movie, I can probably “Google it” and find the answer. The purpose of the movie trailer is to get you to pay lots of money to go to the movie theatre and watch the movie.  The book of Revelation is like a movie trailer to me. My brother John, the Apostle was trying his best to put into words the proper descriptions of all that he is seeing.  I came across one little verse this morning that was a bit more than a sneak peak – it tells how this movie of life ends. Check this out…

14 They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.” (Revelation 17:14 NIV)

 

I’ve known this truth for a very long time. I’ve known that there are daily battles with the evil one and unfortunately he wins a few. The war that is being waged against Christians everywhere will end with a victory over sin and death. I want to be faithful in following the Lord. I know Who wins in the end. I know the “rest of the story”.  Jesus came to earth and conquered sin and death. I want to choose Him daily to be my guide in life. He knows the path I should walk on. He will guide my steps. He will equip me for the battles. He will help me defeat the enemy in the end and give me eternal life in the Presence of the Father.  I need the Presence of the Lord to make it today and every day. The battles are pretty intense, but I must keep my eye on the end of the movie – Jesus wins! Life wins over death!  Good wins over evil.  I want to be on the winning team when either my life ends or life on earth ends.

Pressing On!
Dwayne
