Revelation settles the contentious issue of God as the Creator.

Revelation is the last book of the Bible.  As mentioned before, it has a special blessing that accompanies it.  Why is the special blessing attached to Revelation?  There are many possible reasons which we want to discuss.  One is that the contentious issue of God the Creator is settled in the last book.  

Three times it is says that God is the Creator,

‘You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things and by your will they were created and have their being.’  Revelation 4:11

‘And he [the angel] swore by Him [God] who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it….’  Revelation 10:6

In Revelation 14:6 there is an angel who proclaims the eternal Gospel and says, 

‘Fear God and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come.  Worship Him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.’  

The miracle that John witnessed, 

‘Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.’  Revelation 21:1

At the beginning of this age God created the heavens and the earth.  It served God’s initial purpose to give people a chance to decide where their eternal destination will be.  At the beginning of the eternal age God will create a heaven and earth where those who are willing to serve Him, will enjoy the benefits of the Triune God. 

Conclusion

God blessed the book of Revelation because, among other reasons, He wants us to understand that He is the powerful Creator who can deliver what He promised.

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?
