God's final Word

On that day the sources of light will no longer shine, yet there will be continuous day! Only the Lord knows how this could happen. There will be no normal day and night, for at evening time it will still be light. On that day life-giving waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half toward the Dead Sea and half toward the Mediterranean, flowing continuously in both summer and winter. And the Lord will be king over all the earth. On that day there will be one Lord—his name alone will be worshiped. Zechariah 14:6-9

From the text, there will come a time that God will bring into fulfillment His creative purpose for this earth and the people who are reconciled with Him. In the end, God alone will be worshiped. In the meantime, He is working out His plan of continually reconciling those who are coming to know Him as their Lord and Savior. This glorious plan of the Lord was also what was revealed to Apostle John which he wrote about in the Book of Revelation. In the last two chapters, readers are brought to the never ending glories of the new heaven and the new earth with the Creator and Redeemer dwelling there with His people for eternity. But in the last two chapters, there are also words of warning and invitation to help guide the readers until He returns. There is one final invitation; “The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life” (Revelation 22:17). Then there is a final warning. This completed book called the Bible contains all that man will ever need to know concerning salvation, the Christian life, and God’s great plans so let no man, “adds anything to what is written here” or “removes any of the words from this book of prophecy” (vv. 18-19). There is no salvation except through His word. The Apostle John who wrote the Book of Revelation is also the one who saw Christ walked on this earth and wrote in the gospel these words of God’s plan reconciling the world to Himself; “The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book. But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name” (John 20:30-31).

Blessings.
