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.
An economist released a book earlier this year predicting the collapse of the global monetary system, but in a recent interview he confessed he got something wrong. “The tempo of events is faster than expected,” he said. “Therefore some of these catastrophic outcomes may come sooner than I wrote about.”1 That’s how Christians feel about world events. Rogue nations are acquiring nuclear weapons. Terrorism is a constant threat. Government surveillance is relentless. Middle East tensions are rising. Missionary work is expanding. And morals are collapsing like dominoes.
What a great time to read and study the book of Revelation! When we read the Bible’s concluding book, we’re motivated by its promise of blessing — Christ’s return. He is coming swiftly. He is coming surely. He is coming suddenly. And He is coming for us.
If you’re anxious about the state of the world, that’s understandable. But trade your anxiety for the blessing of hearing the words of Scripture, keeping them in faith and obedience, and remembering the time is near.
Jesus is coming back — it could even be today.
