The Big Reveal | Part 5: Brand New

Chip and Joanna Gaines are pretty popular and, on their show, Fixer Upper, they always had a big reveal! They take a home that needs to be made new, completely renovate the inside and change out the landscape.

When it’s time to reveal the final result to the homeowners, Chip and Joanna install a massive big picture across the front of the newly renovated house and yard. This picture is of the old house and yard before Chip and Joanna came to work their magic. This huge picture is in two big separate parts on wheels and is joined in the middle.

The big picture of their old house and yard begins to separate: one part begins to go to the left and the other part begins to go to the right.

The Big Reveal is about to happen!

And then they cut to a commercial.

And we’re back. The big picture of their old house and yard begins to separate one part begins to go to the left and the other part begins to go to the right.

The Big Reveal is about to happen!

And there it is. What was old has become new. What was dated and ugly has been updated and beautiful. The Big Reveal is what we were waiting for the entire show.

And when you read the Scriptures, we too are waiting for the Big Reveal for the entire Bible. We want to get to the last part.

The last book of the Bible is entitled Revelation. It’s the Big Reveal.

Notice that the title of the last book is NOT Revelations, plural. The Author wanted to make sure that you knew that the real revelation, the Big Revelation, is singular. It’s Jesus Christ.

One day, everyone will see Jesus for Who He is. Every tongue will confess that He is Lord. Jesus Christ is the Big Reveal.

The Apostle Paul, in the second chapter of Philippians revealed this to us:

Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be exploited. Instead he emptied himself by assuming the form of a servant, taking on the likeness of humanity. And when he had come as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death—even to death on a cross. For this reason God highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow—in heaven and on earth and under the earth—and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:6-11)

Today the gospel of Jesus Christ has the power to make what was old brand new. What was old and ugly and sinful in your life can be made new and beautiful and righteous.

Trust Him today, while there is still time.
