December 17, 2021, DAY 349: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR: Revelation 7-11

December 17, 2021


Today, we continue our journey through the book of Revelation. The seventh seal is broken and the roles of the two witnesses are revealed.

Ask the Lord for His understanding of Revelation 7-11. Read Revelation 7-11. Let’s journey!

This last book of prophecy was written by the Apostle John, while he was in exile on the island of Patmos, during the later part of his life. The book contains a prophetic revelation of what was to come, like some of the books of prophecy in the Old Testament. This prophetic revelation was sent as a letter to seven churches in the Asia Minor, to address issues they had. In order to understand this book, we need to remember whom John is addressing and what meaning it holds for them. Throughout the book, there is an underlying warning that history repeats itself and all kingdoms come to reject the Lord. Only through Jesus can evil be removed from the world.

Revelation 7-11: One-hundred-forty-four-thousand will be marked as the Lord’s – 12,000 from each tribe. They will serve as the Lord messengers during the days of tribulation. The seventh seal is broken and the trumpets are sounded. A vision is revealed to John that he is not to record. The roles of the two witnesses are revealed and the final trumpet sounded. (Revelation 7:1-11:19)

After concluding today’s reading, consider the following: Revelation is a very difficult book to read and understand. There are multiple interpretations of the imagery and symbols used throughout the book. Consider what John sees and hears in his vision. What is it? What can be learned from today’s reading? How could this book have provided hope to the churches who received it? How can it provide hope to you?
