Searching Blog: #Comfort
Feb 10, 2023 · Courtney Jacob
In a culture where Christians and non-Christians alike are fascinated by the End Times, the biblical book of Revelation is a source of mystery and curiosity. However, Revelation has sometimes been portrayed as scary or intimidating. But Revelation is not meant to be a source of fear; its vision of heaven is meant to be a source of comfort and hope for believers. Studying its pages provides believers with the reassurance that the pain, grief, and injustice of this life are not final because Jesus Christ already sits on the throne. Revelation encourages Christians to continue living faithfully in this life now.

Whether these questions come out as faint, pain-filled moans or frustrated, angry screams, we can find solace and confidence to remain steadfast in our faith in the biblical story of Job.
