Rejoice When Prayer Is Answered!

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 18.
Revelation 6:9-11 is one of the major keys for unlocking the meaning of the Book of Revelation. There John saw in heaven the souls of those who had been slain for their preaching. They wanted to know how long before the Lord avenged their blood on those who dwell on the earth. It was said to them that they should rest a while until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren would be killed as they were. The implication was that when the number reached perfection, God would take vengeance. Revelation 18 shows the completion of God’s vengeance on those who killed those servants and brethren. Therefore, it is said in verse 20, “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!” (Revelation 18:20).
The ones crying out in Revelation 6 included the apostles killed before John wrote the Book of Revelation and it included prophets. Centuries after the question of the souls in Revelation, the bloodthirsty nation that killed them fell, but fall it did.
Therefore, pray to God without ceasing. Some prayers will be answered immediately, some a little later, and some after a long time.
