Rev 14:13 “Then I heard a voice from heaving saying to me – “Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on, Yes, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them”

The book of Revelation, ahhhh; what a book that people hate to love and love to hate, why? Because if you read it without understanding it’s symbolic meaning it will be considered a warped fabrication of a Hollywood horror and science fiction movie. For a believer, it is as we know it to be completely the opposite. This book is the TESTAMENT that brings all 65 books before it into full and complete fruition. It’s the book that reveals the End-Time Prophetic Events.

Revelation means “unveiling” or “disclosure” of the character of GOD. Christ being revealed to the Apostle John to share to the world HIS RIGHTEOUS HAND OF JUDGMENT against the false prophet, anti-christ, beast, HIS REMAKING OF THE WORLD and HIS RULE!
I would like to draw your attention to the the latter part of the above verse that JUMPED in my spirit : “their works will follow them”. Matthew 25:21 “His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ (NKJV)

Hhmm, what does that mean, ABBA? Death is the rest from this world; from it’s pain, from it’s suffering, from it’s worldly entanglements, from feuds with family, from long tedious working hours, from a nagging spouse, from rebellious children, from a overbearing parent, from bills, from responsibility etc. DEATH is THE REST FROM ALL OUR LABORS that we have SOWN in the VINEYARD OF CHRIST!

Did you know that “your labor for the LORD here on earth” will follow you into heaven after your death? Did you know that there is an opposite affect to this as well,that if we are seeking a easy and comfortable life here on earth, we will be barren in heaven; 1 Cor 3: 14 -15 “If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.” “Our works follow us! and the rewards thereof” significantly saying to each of us that as a Christian, we need to remember that we will be “serving” in heaven. We will not be sitting around on a cloud playing the harp and eating candy floss. Your labor is your service to the LORD, which challenges each of us to ask ourselves, “What service are you doing for the LORD right now?”

In His Name,
