Revelation 14:1 KJV
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the
and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name
written in their foreheads. mount Sion
So much of what happens in the revelation involves John's sight:
- He looked
- He saw
Herein lies one of the great troubles of humanity; we fail to look. Especially is this true of the future. We tend to have blinders on anyway but more so concerning what is ahead. A wise man will plan for his future, his retirement years. A wiser one will plan for eternity.
The problem with most people is that they do not spend a sufficient time exploring eternal possibilities.
What will be my eternal end?
Is there a life after death?
Are there consequences to the deeds of this life?
Too many people never look into these questions.
- To look is to see
- To see is to learn
- To learn is to know
- To know is to have hope
