Heavenly Father, thank You for giving Your Son the Lamb for us and for all that You've revealed to us in Your Word, including Your warnings to us on sin and Your instruction on Your good and acceptable and perfect will for us. Help us to know You and Your Son and Your Holy Spirit better through our study of Your Word. Bless our reading of it, help us to understand it, make it fruitful in us and through us, and help us especially in studying this book of Revelation that You've given us. And strengthen Your Church, including all of Your missionaries, pastors and church leaders, and all those being persecuted for Your Son's name, including in North Korea, China, Africa and Muslim lands, and Christians here who have paid a price for not compromising on Your Word, and keep Chinese leaders from corrupting Your Word in Chinese-language Bibles and help believers in North Korea and China, including children, to know You and meet in the truth of Your Word. Help us also as we face living in this time and place which is more and more rejecting Your Son and in which evil is so often called good and good evil, lies are called true and the truth called lies, and false accusers abound, as Satan's temporary grip on this world is increasing, and in which coldness is growing in many churches and those with the spirit of the tare and the spirit of the hireling so often have the loudest voices. Help us also to take the beam out of our own eye before trying to remove the mote from the eyes of others and to follow Your direction on how we are to live each day, not depending on our own sight or own understanding or own strength but on You; help us to be the salt and light that we should be, to expose evil for what it is, and to be thankful and trusting You in all circumstances, for how things are, and have been, and will be; give us a fresh infilling of Your Holy Spirit; and help, too, our leaders in the world, including the Trumps and Pences, and help our nation also so that many hearts here turn back to You and many more souls are saved.

We also pray for those possessed or oppressed by demons, those oppressed by man, the falsely accused and falsely convicted, those who serve and protect others, the poor and the homeless, and those addicted to substances. And also help and protect children who are being abused and children in the womb and those fighting to protect them. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

I have been thinking often of late that this is a rather key thought for us going forward.

Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega.

We need to be thinking more in terms of how Jesus is the future.

We are cast as defending the past and being the traditionalists.

This is true but we are also the future and the ultimate progress of all reality.

We need to be defending an Omega Christianity.
