• “I think of the love of God as a great river, pouring through us even as the waters pour through our ravine at floodtime. Nothing can keep this love from pouring through us, except of course our own blocking of the river. Do you sometimes feel that you have got to the end of your love for someone who refuses and repulses you? Such a thought is folly, for one cannot come to the end of what one has not got. We have no store of love at all. We are not jugs, we are riverbeds.” – Amy Carmichael

Jesus Introduces Himself (in Revelation) by Gloria Furman

Here are some of the ways the crucified, risen, ascended, and enthroned Jesus describes himself in the Book of Revelation:

  • Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.
  • him who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks among the seven golden lampstands
  • the first and the last, who died and came to life
  • him who has the sharp two-edged sword
  • the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like burnished bronze
  • him who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars
  • the holy one, the true one, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, who shuts and no one opens
  • the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation
  • I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
  • I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.

Verse of the Day

[The Last Enemy Destroyed] But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. — 1 Corinthians 15:20-22 (NKJV)
