Jesus has promised us that He is coming soon. Therefore we need to be ready for his coming by obeying the message He has given us:
“Look, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this scroll.” (Revelation 22:7)
Specifically, we are commanded to “keep the words of the prophecy written in this scroll.” What scroll is He referring to? Obviously the book of revelation. Therefore we need to believe and obey the message we see in the book of Revelation. We need to first of all believe and be saved by the blood of the lamb, since there is no other salvation. This message of salvation in Christ’s blood is central to the book of Revelation (Revelation 5:9-10). And also we need to truly believe that these events are happening soon. They could happen at any time. If we believe this we will be constantly studying God’s word and learning how to grow in spiritual maturity so that we will be ready for these things when they come.
