While I was sitting on the couch, I suddenly received a message to read Revelation chapter 22. It was very clear, unlike any other direction I had received before. In fact, I didn't even know if there was a Revelation chapter 22 in the book! I thought it only went up to chapter 21. In any case, I picked up my Bible and to my surprise and delight, I found that there was indeed a chapter 22 in the book of Revelation - the final chapter! So I started reading it until two particular verses struck a chord:
"He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward (is) with me, to give every man according as his work shall be." - Revelation 22:11-12
These two verses related to the unreasonable offer I received from Internet Brands, and enabled me to forgive and release my frustration towards their unjust dealings with me. Why? Because we all receive the reward or penalty for our actions, whether they be good or bad, and this allows us to release and let go of our anger or frustration towards someone or something, knowing that indeed the Lord shall repay!
"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things (done) in (his) body, according to that he hath done, whether (it be) good or bad." - 2 Corinthians 5:10
"Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord." - Romans 12:19
What was interesting about this message was that when I received it, it felt as though whoever gave it to me was pleased to be able to do so, knowing it was a gift from God.
Note: I wasn't originally going to include this entry on the timeline - perhaps I didn't think it was all that significant, however, early one morning - some months after writing this timeline, it was brought back to me in a way that convinced me that God wanted me to include this 'event' on the timeline. Perhaps it will have some meaning to someone else who reads it!
