Page 18

"He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he saw, that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near." (Revelation 1.1b-3)✞

Jesus Christ Blessed

I'm BlessedTo read Revelation words is to be "Blessed," and this is the first of seven blessings in Revelation which are "beatitude like." The blessings of Revelation are reminiscent of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount of Olives. They are also a reminder of the old Celtic Benediction, "Bless the Lord, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless his holy name." Blessed are they who read these words. Here are the seven Revelation blessings.✞
