In today’s (chronological) Bible reading… Revelation 6-10… we read of the 7 seals (which will lead to the 7 trumpets, then 7 bowls).  The 7 trumpets will blow a warning of God’s judgment… expressed in the imagery of plagues.

The gospel story, that sin destroys and Jesus saves, is depicted on a cosmic scale.

As I write today’s blog, it is Christmas Day!

We celebrate Christmas because it is the first coming of Jesus.  The book of Revelation describes the second coming of Jesus.  Both are required because of sin.
