“Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near” (Revelation 1:3).
Some miss the intent of the book of Revelation with their insistence that it is best interpreted by events depicted in the morning paper or the evening news. If such were the case, then no generation until our own could have understood or obeyed the book ( a contradiction to the assumption of 1:3). While originally penned to a literal seven churches in literal Asia Minor, the message is no less clear to us today. He is coming again. Be ready!
