12/15/19: Revelation 6:1-17; Psalm 134:1-3; Proverbs 30:1-4
As we begin reading the next several chapters of Revelation I find that the commentators I read make the point that the signs and symbolism in these chapters are not easily interpreted. And that we should beware of those who state that they understand fully.
I am reminded of the multiple warnings from Paul, Peter, John and others on the urgency of our remaining in the Word and being alert to the false teachers who may approach us.
2 Peter 2:2 But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3 In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
