Revelation 20-22 John’s prayer should become our prayer: “Come Lord Jesus!” Congratulations on finishing the New Testament. Let me know if you want some thoughts on where to go in your daily reading.
Revelation 17-19 We have a great celebration awaiting us. Until then, we should be involved in righteous acts that declare God’s glory.
Revelation 14-16 Chapter 15 reminds us that one of the key characteristics of God is His justice. He would not be God without this. People who are killed for being Christians would never be able to worship God apart from His justice. He is rightly praised in this chapter for bringing justice on the earth.
Revelation 11-13 Chapter 13, verses 9-10 are challenging. God tells His people they may be killed by persecutors. He doesn’t offer any other explanation other than the encouragement that this calls for us to patiently endure through the difficulty.
Revelation 8-10 For all of our questions about Revelation, they are primarily contained in chapters 6-18. You can gain a good grasp of the book in the chapters preceding and following this section.

Revelation 2-4 The letters to these seven churches are full of treasures. One of my favorites is Jesus telling the church in Thyatira that they are doing what He expects. He adds no other burden to them. They merely need to hold fast until He returns. So many well meaning Christians are always overwhelmed as…
2 John 1; 3 John 1; Revelation 1 While I think there is clearly blessing awaiting us as we read any section of scripture, it is interesting to see God spell this out for us in Revelation 1.
1 John 3-5 Take time to highlight as you read these chapters all of John’s talk about what love really looks like. He is often called the apostle of love and these chapters are a big reason why.
John 21; 1 John 1-2 I hope we never grow dull to the truth that God is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from sin and unrighteousness.
