It is important to recognize the grace of God in our eschatology. Why is it so important to have a correct view of eschatology? (The doctrine of the end times) An erroneous position on eschatology may be an indicator of a disorientation from the gospel of grace. Grace guides us in our understanding of the whole counsel of God. A pre-tribulational rapture reveals the nature of God and magnifies the finished work of Christ.

Premillennialism as well, the millennial kingdom will be established by Christ, not ushered in by human hands. Postmillennialism essentially says, "it is up to us" whereas premillennialism says, "it is up to God." Everything in scripture glorifies the grace of God. In the end, there is only a glorified Lamb, on an eternal platform, as the only one who is worthy to take the title deed from the hand of him who sits on the throne. When the voice asks, "who is worthy to open the book, and loose the seals thereof," there is only silence among the created order. No one is seen stumbling out onto the platform offering to take a crack at it. In that day, it will be crystal clear to everyone who the Lord is and what he has done. It will be equally clear that it was the word of his grace that is declared in the volume of the book. From Genesis to Revelation it is all Christ. It is all: who he is, what he is like, and what he has done. He is all and in all. He alone is worthy, amen.



Revelation Chapter 5


And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.

9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.
