Today’s portion of Revelation may have been written specifically for 8 year old boys. There’s a battle scene, Jesus on a horse, a beast, and a dragon. So, let your inner 8 year old boy out for this one.

Zechariah 12:1-13:9:

  • 1-5 – This oracle explains that Judah and Jerusalem will both be a challenge for anyone who possesses them and tries
  • 10 – Most people would consider this a prophecy fulfilled by Jesus.
  • 1-6 – This alludes to Christ’s death when people are freely forgiven of their sins.

Revelation 19:1-21:

  • 7 – The church is believed to be the bride of Christ.
  • 10-21 – Jesus is portrayed as a warrior on a horse. This begins the battle between Christ and the evil forces led by the beast, dragon, and false prophets. We see steady progress of Christ towards victory.

Psalm 147:1-20:

  • 1-6 – The psalmist calls for us to offer praise to God and then gives reasons why we should.

Proverbs 31:1-7:

  • 4-7 – Here, leaders are instructed not to get drunk because it can only harm their reign. Instead the proper place for mind-altering drinks is listed.
