16 In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength. 17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, 18 and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.
It does not take a genius to understand the book of Revelation, but only a spiritual-born Christian will. A carnal-minded, book-wise person will not. Revelation is the last book of the Holy Bible, so knowing the 65 books before is helpful. Famous intelligent scientists such as Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin, Stephen Hawkins, and Neil deGrasse Tyson don’t believe in God. According to their understanding, the university could not be created in 7 days. So they believe the God of the Holy Bible is a fairy tale. The Lord is the Creator of heaven and earth, and He accomplishes creation in 7 days. God made the seventh day holy and named it His Sabbath because He is the Lord of Creation. The fourth commandment tells God’s followers to remember the Sabbath day as a commandment, so His followers would remember He is the only Creator.
Exodus 20:11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and everything that is in them, and He rested on the seventh day; for that reason, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
The Lord Jesus is the light of the world; on the fourth day of creation, God placed stars in the night sky. God said let there be light on the first day of creation; that gave a dead world new life. The Word that comes from God’s mouth is like a double-edged sword. It is a double edge because it heals and harms simultaneously. God’s Word, chase the darkness away when He said let there be light. With the same Word, Jesus said, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do, so He gave His life for the sins of the world, and He asked Father God to forgive us. After that moment, darkness appeared on the land, and many feared what had just happened.
Luke 23:34 But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots, dividing His garments among themselves. 35 And the people stood by, watching. And even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One.”
John 19:28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been accomplished, in order that the Scripture would be fulfilled, said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. 30 Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.
Luke 23:44 It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the entire land until the ninth hour, 45 because the sun stopped shining; and the veil of the temple was torn in two. 46 And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into Your hands I entrust My spirit.” And having said this, He died. 47 Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he began praising God, saying, “This man was in fact innocent.”
Oddly, Jesus said He had accomplished all He came to do on the sixth day of the week and died just before the Sabbath. Like the Roman centurion, John threw himself down at Jesus’ feet. The merciful Creator extends His hand and tells him, rest your fears; I accomplished all so that you can have everlasting life. He will do the same for all who remember He is Lord. God bless you all; the Lord Jesus loves you, and so do I. His humble bondservant, Samuel Jerry Head.
Hebrews 4:4 For He has said somewhere concerning the seventh day: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”; 5 and again in this passage, “They certainly shall not enter My rest.” 6 Therefore, since it remains for some to enter it, and those who previously had good news preached to them failed to enter because of disobedience, 7 He again sets a certain day, “Today,” saying through David after so long a time just as has been said before, “Today if you hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts.” 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that. 9 Consequently, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His. 11 Therefore let’s make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following the same example of disobedience. 12 For the Word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, even penetrating as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him to whom we must answer.
