“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”
and keep those things which are written in it;
The third area where God blesses us is “keeping” the principles, or applying the principles of the Book of Revelation to our lives. Not only are we to “read” and “hear” prophecy but God wants us to “keep” prophecy as well. The word “keep” means guard. We need to stand on guard lest we lose the principles of this book. If we do not guard them, we will lose them.
We are not only to read but we are also to hear. We are not only to hear but we are also to guard the word of this prophecy for our spiritual life.
God wants us to apply prophecy to our experience.
God promises a blessing on reading and applying this book to our life to encourage us to give heed to the principles of this book. Why not avail yourselves of God’s promise?
John wants us to more than simply read Revelation; he wants us to practice the principles of this book. This obviously requires that we get a good grasp on the principles this book reveals. Do you look at the Book of Revelation as an abstruse book or as a book that reveals Jesus Christ in a unique way?
I started my walk with Christ 8 years ago. I have tried reading Revelation in the past and dismissed it because "it's just too confusing, I can't uderstand what it says". I can tell from your writing and "urging" otherwise that I am in no way alone in my thinking. I sooo have the desire to read, study and understand this book. I started using VBV in my daily reading last week and it helped understand the apostle Paul's writings .I pray this is my chance to understand the final book of our bible. I spent 2 of my study sessions absorbing the intoduction.That, after all is the point, "to absorb."
thank you for your love of THE WORD
I do not think I checked the “notify me” box on any of my questions but meant to. what do I do now?
