Today is a day to reflect over our readings. I don’t think you can read Revelation and not be struck by this spiritual battle we are in each and every day! Oh, we are told over and over again in scripture that we are in mist of this on going spiritual battle but that battle comes alive when we see the imagery of Revelation. I believe one of things this book does is that it strips away all the glitter and paint and exposes the true nature of Satan and his agents. Rome with all it’s power, wealth, and comforts was a very seductive, but our readings are showing us the true nature of that culture. It is no different today, much of what is being exposed today is showing us the evil underbelly of all the glitter and glamour that is sold to us day in and day out in the media!
