REVELATION 1:3

Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

AS JOHN INTRODUCES THE REVELATIONS WHICH THE LORD HAS JUST GIVEN TO HIM ABOUT THE END OF DAYS AND THE SECOND COMING, HE MAKES THIS PROFOUND PROCLAMATION.

NOTE THE THREE KEY WORDS HERE:  READ, HEAR, AND KEEP.

THERE ARE SPECIAL BLESSINGS FOR THOSE WHO WILL NOT ONLY READ THE WORDS OF JOHN’S REVELATION, BUT ALSO HEAR/RECEIVE, AND KEEP THEM. THAT MUST NECESSARILY MEAN THAT THOSE WHO DO NOT READ, HEAR AND KEEP THE WORDS OF THIS BOOK ARE DEFINITELY GOING TO MISS OUT ON SOME BLESSINGS.

AND IF HE WROTE THAT THE TIME WAS NEAR THEN, HOW MUCH CLOSER MUST WE BE TO IT NOW?!

SUFFICE IT TO SAY THAT ALL BELIEVERS WOULD BE DOING THEMSELVES A FAVOUR TO TAKE THE BOOK OF REVELATIONS A BIT MORE SERIOUSLY: READ, HEAR, AND KEEP  – ATTEND TO THE WARNINGS THEREIN, AND WALK ACCORDINGLY.
