While more is yet to come in this time of upheaval and uncertainty, there is promise of blessing for those that love the Lord. Here is one practical way to keep your mind on things above, things yet to come, and be blessed as a promise from God.
“Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.” Revelation 1:3.
I just finished reading the book of Revelation aloud, and the difference between this and reading silently is palpable. The sense of Truth, conviction, love, instruction, and consequence is full. I expect to be reading and rereading this book, taking notes, and walking through prayerfully over an undesignated time, that only God knows.
The Word tells us “the time is near,” and so it was. I fully believe the time is here; for we are witnessing John’s vision coming to past. As we go forward, I pray that we His Bride, will continue to press in, and not shrink back. That we will seek God and His Truth, direction, and love. That we will reach out in love to those around us as His image bearers. And that we will “look up, for our redemption draweth nigh.” Yes, the time is near, and the time is here.
Blessings to you,
