‘Never again will they hunger;
never again will they thirst.
The sun will not beat down on them,’[a]
nor any scorching heat.
17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne
will be their shepherd;
‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’[b]
‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’
– Revelation 7:16 & 17
The year 2016 was tumultuous and 2017 promises to again be filled with terrorism, murders in the streets, diplomacy challenges, famines, and deadly storms. How can we endure it?
As I was reading Revelation this morning, I was reminded of the time David Frost interviewed Billy Graham and asked how he could keep his faith amidst all the bad things happening in the world. Graham looked at Frost and simply said, “I’ve read the last page of the Bible; it’s all going to turn out all right.”
