While John’s vision in Revelation portrays the very real, and very dire threats that surround God’s people, the ultimate truth is that there is nothing on earth that can withstand the love of our powerful God.

TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.” (Revelation 7:12)
The apocalyptic vision has become extreme indeed—horsemen unleashing disasters on an unimaginable scale. To persecuted Christians, they are more real than imagined. The final and complete deliverance of God’s faithful ones is the best possible news they could receive.
- What images in this text scare you the most? Why?
- Wonder: What might the horsemen ride if they arrived today? How might they be dressed?
- Would they bring the same sorts of judgments, or would they be different?
PRAY: Almighty God, your strength far outstrips any earthly power. May we put our fears aside and our trust in you, in whom our hopes will not be disappointed. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
BLESS: May God fill you with passion and fire. Amen.
