And he said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent his angel to show his servants what must soon take place.” Revelation 22:6.
These words come from the servant of Jesus as given to him by Jesus. John saw our tomorrow through this revelation from Jesus. Long ago, I heard the song that began — ‘On a clear day, rise and look around you, and you’ll see who you are’. The song ends with the words – ‘You will see a world from far and near, On a clear day, you can see forever, and ever more.’
These two verses are from Revelation 1:1-2 – This is a revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants the events that must soon take place. He sent an angel to present this revelation to his servant John, who faithfully reported everything he saw. This is his report of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Another BEHOLD in verse 7! And the most welcome…I am coming soon! As evil tries to bury truth, and Creation creaks and groans with earthquakes and hurricanes, we turn to the only powerful One Who protects us. And why? A simple four letter word we use for many things like ice cream and chocolate. God is LOVE. He loves us. Are we ‘beholding’ Him? Are our minds clear enough to see the ‘forever’ God, the One and Only? When we love the Lord our God, and our neighbor as ourselves, then we are on the way to the Lord God’s Forever! This kind of pure love clears our mind to love like Jesus loves each of us.
“And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.” Revelation 22:7.
