Revelation 22 describes life. There are 12 pictures to help us identify life. There is the river of life, the tree of life, the faces of life, the light of life, the faithful sayings of life, we are to worship the God of life, the prophecy of life, the Alpha and Omega of life, the commandments of life, we are to come to life, and the Lord Jesus is life.
These pictures describe our eternal home. God gives the readers one last chance to get saved. He warns not to add or take away from the “…prophecy of this book…”
The book of life (22:18-19)
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
We are not to alter the word of God. Many church’s, denomination, and cults, change the God’s word so it agrees with their doctrinal principles. God says that He will judge them.
Lord Jesus Christ is life (22:20-21)
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
Jesus is coming soon. The rapture of the church could happen at any time.
The question is, are you ready? Have you been obedient to God’s word in the matter of salvation? If not, are you prepared for total isolation, in a lake of fire, with no relief, ever. You do not have to go there.
Come quickly Lord Jesus!
