Coming Soon

"The Angel said to me, 'These are dependable and accurate words, every one. The God and Master of the spirits of the prophets sent his Angel to show his servants what must take place, and soon. And tell them, "Yes, I'm on my way!" Blessed be the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.' " (Revelation 22:6,7 - The Message)

The person speaking changes several times during the last part of this chapter. In these two verses, it is Jesus that is speaking. He emphasis the truth revealed in this book. He gives His pledge to its truthfulness. He also reminds us that the God who inspired the prophets of old is the same God who sent the angel to reveal to John and us the things which will quickly come to pass.

Jesus reminds us that he too will come quickly. This does not mean that he would come soon, but that when the events revealed in this prophecy begin to unfold, they will quickly occur one after another. We have waited more than 1900 years since John received this Revelation. We do not know how much longer we will have to wait. However, once the first seal is opened. The events of the Tribulation will occur quickly and without pause.

To keep the sayings of this book makes a person blessed. This is more than just knowing what the book of Revelation says. It is doing what this book encourages: evangelism.
