Psalms: 42, 43

Meditation

Revelation: There is a great temptation to take what we see here literally. I urge you to avoid that temptation. A general rule of thumb is that if the prophecy does not make sense to the original hearers, it cannot be correct as that was the intended audience. This is very much a dark period and very depressing. The reading tells us that people will seek death or suicide and yet not succeed. We know we have reached a new level of godlessness when we embrace suicide (and abortion) as acceptable. This is in stark contrast to “Thy Will be done.”

Gospel: Luke 10:25-37

New Testament: Revelation 9:1-12

Old Testament: Genesis 4:1-16
