February 2, 2022

There are a lot of two’s today, 2/2/22! Too many twos. In honor of all the twos, I will cover the following verses:

Revelation 2:22
Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation, unless they repent of her works,

Revelation 22:2
through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 

There is such a contrast between the two that you can see God’s intention for us in verse 22:2; he wants us well fed and healed. We, who are the followers of Christ, are not intended to be subjected to “the tribulation,” though each of us must contend with some tribulation, it is not God who will bring it against us. Even those God brings to justice have the opportunity to repent; look at verse 2:22! In that verse, God is referring to the church that allows Baal worship because it explicitly mentions Jezebel, who was a Baal worshipper. These people probably thought they were worshipping Jesus, but it was so convoluted and unbiblical that Jesus thought it was necessary to point out their mistake. 

Make sure the Jesus you follow is the real Jesus and not some imposter - JINO - Jesus in name only.

I can’t wait until 2/22/22!
