IT’S ALL ABOUT PROPHECY

“Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.”  Revelation 1:3

The book of Revelation contains a lot of strange symbols and signs that most people do not understand. That is why, when looking at this book, there are three things that you need to know. These three ideas will help you understand John’s letter. The first thing that you need to know is the book is all about prophecy. The book of Revelation contains prophecies from God. These prophecies are about the end of this world and about the beginning of a new heaven and new earth. This new heaven and new earth is coming and will be ruled by King Jesus. The prophecies contained in this book should encourage believers and also be read as a warning to all of creation.

The new heaven and new earth, which will be ruled by King Jesus, is coming and will last forever. That is wonderful news to all Christians who put their hope in Jesus. This encourages us to live to the glory of God. It stirs us to live a righteous and a holy life. It motivates us to turn away from sin, present ourselves as a living sacrifice and endure suffering in this world. We know that the prophecy given to John is true. One day overcomers will rule with King Jesus. Hallelujah! In addition to the encouragement, we should read the book as a warning from God that time is running short. It is a warning for Christians to live right and not be too tied to this world. It is a warning that this world is passing away and we ought to be about our Father’s business. Be on guard! That is how you should read this book. Do not live your life for the here and now because if you do you will “miss the boat!”

Questions: Do you see the book of Revelation as a warning from Jesus?  What type of response does this warning stir up inside you?  In what ways can you use this warning as an encouragement?

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, You told us to store up these prophecies into our heart. We know that they are true and can be trusted. You want us to know that the time is running short, and Jesus’ return can happen at any time. We ask that You help us take heed to your warning. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen!
