Description: We often say things like: "God has a plan for your life" with good intentions. For the most part, there's truth in it. At the same time, it
can give the impression that God has many different plans that He's
managing all at once. That's not the picture John gives us from heaven. He sees a vision of God with a scroll. On this scroll is one plan: God's determined will for human history. It includes His decrees of judgment and redemption. Who can read this scroll? Who can bring about God's plan for redemption and protect us from the judgment therein? No one in heaven or on earth except Jesus Christ, the lion of Judah and lamb of God, who has conquered through the cross. In this week's message we learn about why Jesus is central to God's will for human history, and why the solution to our weeping is to behold Him.
