The Last Sentence in the Bible

What is the last sentence in the Bible?


Every book has a beginning and an ending.

Everyone who reads a novel always looks forward to the ending or anticipates a happy ending for their favorite character.

However, when it comes to the Bible, people place more emphasis on the beginning than the ending.

Every Bible reader seems to the first sentence in Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” But have little or no idea about the last sentence in Revelation, the last book of the Bible.

In as much as all the parts of a book are essential, the ending is more crucial because it often summarizes the entire book or states the essence of the book.

The last sentence in the Bible is a powerful spiritual prayer to the church: 

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:21).What is the last sentence in the Bible

What a way to end the most significant book of all ages.

It is an assurance of God’s unending love and continuous help to those who trust Him.

This last sentence of the Bible has more meaning than ever before as the world seems plunged into gross darkness and suffering that has never been experienced before.

To better understand the significance of this short but profound sentence, let’s explore the key roles God’s grace play in a believer’s life.

We are saved by grace.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8–9)

We have all sinned and deserve to suffer the consequences of our sins.

And the punishment for sin is death.

Not only have we sinned, but we do not have what it takes to atone for our sins.

The Bible says all our righteousness is like filthy rags before God (Isaiah 64:6).

That means that we cannot receive salvation through our efforts.

That is why God sent His only Son, Jesus, to come and pay the ultimate prize for our sins so we can be forgiven and reconciled to God.

The only way to achieve the shedding of blood.

Jesus chose to die on the cross of Calvary because of His love for humanity.

Therefore, Jesus took the fall for our sins.

He was bruised and killed, so we may live.

Through His death, He offered us salvation free of charge.

We are no longer guilty of our sins because His blood has washed us clean.

We can now approach God and build a relationship with Him because we are sanctified and made holy.

This is the summary of God’s grace.

We did not work for our salvation but were offered as a gift by Jesus’ sacrifice and the grace of God.last line in the bible

We are strengthened by grace.

“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

As believers, we are faced with diverse trials and tribulations.

We also experience lots of tests and temptations. However, God’s grace strengthens us and helps us stand irrespective of the pain and suffering.

Here, God’s grace comes as a supernatural strength to help us withstand the storms of life even when others are being washed away.

When you begin to do the things you couldn’t do before or find yourself not compromising your faith even in the face of temptation and opposition, just know that God’s grace is at work in your life.

Therefore, be thankful unto God. Acknowledge Him as the source of your strength, and He’ll keep supplying you with His grace.what is the last line in the bible

We are freed by grace.

“Now therefore, why do you test God by putting a yoke on the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved in the same manner as they.” (Acts 15:10–11)

The Old Testament time was a dispensation of the law. Every Christian lived under the law of Moses. However, the law was endless and humanly impossible to fulfill.

It also comes with consequences, even death penalties.

So, the law became a yoke on the necks of Christians.

They struggled to please God and underwent an unending process of cleansing and purification rituals to be holy and acceptable before God.

However, God’s grace takes away that burden from us. Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice paid for our sins once and for all. So, we do not need to constantly worry about fulfilling the endless laws of Moses.

Therefore, grace brings us freedom. It takes away the fear that comes with inevitably disobeying Moses’ law. But gives us peace of mind and the assurance that God’s grace is sufficient for us.last sentence in revelations

We are empowered by grace.

“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” (1 Corinthians 15:10)

A true believer understands that all they are and have is not by their faithfulness, efforts, or wisdom but by the grace of God.

God’s grace empowers us to succeed and prosper.

It is working behind the scene on our behalf, enhancing our little efforts, and bringing underserved blessings our way.

Therefore, we must be humble enough to acknowledge that we are not better than those below us.

Instead, God, in His sovereignty, has chosen to bless us.

last sentence of the bible

The final sentence of the Bible shows us how much God cares for us.

He did not leave us helpless.

Instead, He assures us of His amazing grace that provides us with the gift of salvation, teaches us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, empowers us to live righteously and godly in this present age, and await the second coming of our Lord and Savior (Titus 2:11-14)

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:21)
