God blesses the one who reads the words of this prophecy to the church, and he blesses all who listen to its message and obey what it says, for the time is near.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.” (Revelation 1:3, 8 NLT)
Wow… It really feels as if the end is near. I am up to Joel in the Old Testament. But…
The Book of the Revelation!
Not something we read often in the Church of England, but we all know it by reputation. And we know it’s the last book in the New Testament.
It IS the beginning of the end. We are hurtling towards December 31st. New Year’s Eve, chimes of Big Ben. Auld Lang Syne.
And all that…
Listen to the message and obey… For the time is near.
