Revelation Blessing Promises
(Revelation 22.6-7)
Page 311

"The angel said to me, 'These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God who inspires the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place. Look, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this scroll.'" (Revelation 22.6-7)✞

Coming Soon

Coming Soon Light of GodThe sight of God produces the perfect worship scenario, where God is always seen and all life becomes an act of worship. It also produces the perfect consecration for the inhabitants of the city will have the mark of God upon their foreheads, showing that they belong only to him. John adds to his Revelation blessing promises that in the city of God there can never be any darkness. John of Patmos records in Revelation 22.5a, "They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light." The vision ends in Revelation 22.5b with the promise that "they [the people of God] will reign for ever and ever." In perfect submission to him, they will find absolute freedom and true royalty. The angel who has been the interpreter of the divine things to John of Patmos stressed the promises that John has seen and heard. "The God who inspired the prophets" means the God who breathed into the prophets. The promises that John received came from the same God that inspired the great prophets of the Old Testament, and they must be treated with equal seriousness.✞
