Reading the End of the Story


He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. (Revelation 21:7)

  • Reading the final book of the Bible, the book of Revelation, can be an encouragement and comfort for Christians. Christians are the overcomers, both now and for eternity.

  • As the apostle John talks about the revealing of the new heaven and the new earth in Revelation, he describes what the final victory will look like for those who have received Jesus as Savior. At that time, we will see the end of death, tears, sorrow, and pain. And the Lord will declare: “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son”. God will dwell with us, and He will make all things new. We will have complete happiness with God for eternity.

  • When the trials of today seem more daunting than our strength, let us read the end of the story when we will be in God’s presence forever! For hope today, always remember to read the end of the story, our eternity with God.

  • Often, we are told not to read the end of the story before we are done with the book. But God in His mercy gives us the ending of His story now so that no matter how bad it gets in the middle, we know it is going to finish gloriously! In the final chapter, all wrongs are made right and every tear is wiped away.
