Revelation 1:3



 Revelation 1:3

Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near


The book of Revelation, anointed by the Holy Spirit and delivered by an angel to John on the isle of Patmos, serves as our roadmap from today to eternity.


God promised a double blessing to the one who reads the revelation and to the one who hears it. He guarantees that blessing will flow from this book.


While many choose to focus on the antichrist, the book of Revelation actually is a victorious declaration of Jesus – the Alpha and Omega, the Faithful Witness, the Bright and Morning Star, and the Amen. Why did God reveal Him to the Church in these final chapters?


When Jesus came to us before, He came as the Lamb slain from the creation of the world. He was mocked, despised, spat on, and betrayed by His closest friends. He hung on a Roman cross, bleeding for the remission of our sins. His cruel, humiliating death purchased our redemption.


In Revelation, God pulls back the curtain to present the King of kings and Lord of lords! He is the Root of David Who will rule the world from Jerusalem with a rod of iron. Nobles will come to pay him homage. He came as the Lamb before, but He will return as the Lion of the tribe of Judah!


Today's Blessing:


May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Give all glory to the Lion and the Lamb Who has overcome the world. Soon, we shall behold Him!
