2 Chronicles 27, Isaiah 9-12
Are you the person who reads the last chapter of a book first? I’m not. I like to unveil the story one page at a time.
Do you, when watching a movie with someone who’s seen it before, continue to ask what will happen next? Are they going to be ok? Do they find the treasure? Did the butler do it? Do they fall in love?
I am reminded that as I read God’s Word, especially words of prophecy, God’s already seen the movie. He can tell us what’s coming because he has already seen the end. He’s read the last chapter.
Even though we view them as things that will happen, God sees them in the past tense. That blows my mind.
What a comfort to know that, after all the craziness of life on earth, God is still standing. And He wants me standing with Him!
So here’s the spoiler alert: Jesus, sitting on the throne forever. Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace… from then on and forevermore!
That’s how the story unfolds. And, for those of us who know Jesus as our Savior, we’re going to be ok!
