Origins and Last Things

Last week we talked about the Divine DNA that runs through Scripture. Well, each divine DNA strand begins its journey in Genesis and finds its ultimate climax and resolution in Revelation. No two books have been attacked or neglected more than these two bookends of Scripture.

Naturalists and liberal theologians have sought to undermine the authenticity and reliability of Genesis for the past 250 years. The enemy would like nothing more than to divert our attention away from foundational truth. If this critical foundation is cracked (at least in the hearts and minds of people), the rest of the structure is ignored or greatly misunderstood.

On the other end of the biblical spectrum, the book of Revelation is often seen as confusing at best—and utterly unknowable or irrelevant at worst. We shouldn’t be surprised that both Genesis and Revelation are under attack these days—just as we are nearing the end of the age. [

John 10:10—The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

There is a critical link between these two key books and the enemy has done his best to keep us disinterested or preoccupied so we miss the all-important truths found within them. In Genesis, we discover our roots, and in Revelation we learn about our eternal future.

Every key theme and theological truth finds its origin in Genesis, and its ultimate culmination in Revelation. The Bible is a “book of books” that begins with eternity past, and ends with eternity future. The core questions that people have about their origins and their future are answered by these two critical books—meticulously woven together by the other 64 books between them.
