Was it last night, after your feet snuggled warmly under the covers? Did you thank Him for giving you another twenty-four hours to share His love?

Christians know the book of Revelation in the New Testament. John the apostle, wrote it when he was about 90 years old as a prisoner of Rome on the island of Patmos in the Aegean Sea.
