Revelation 22:12-17

Revelation 22:12-17

The Final Vision of John’s Revelation, Jesus’ final word is that he is coming soon.

“Look, I am coming soon, and my reward is with me to repay each person according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and may enter the city by the gates. Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. I, Jesus, have sent my angel to attest these things to you for the churches. I am the root and descendant of David, the bright morning star.”

Both the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Let anyone who hears, say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come. Let the one who desires take the water of life freely. (Revelation 22:12-17)

Pastor John’s Notes:

The operative word here is “soon.” Soon Jesus Christ will return to establish his eternal kingdom. Soon all creation will be redeemed. Soon we will be with the Lord.

Prayer:

Lord, let this word “soon” take root within my soul. Let is spur me on to do the work that is necessary within my soul. Let me live in peace knowing that I am fully prepared for your return.
