"And behold, I am coming quickly.
Blessed is he who heeds the words of
the prophecy of this book." Revelation 22:7 (NAS)
Are you willing to do more than just read the
words? Blessed are those who heed (keeps or
obeys) the words of the prophecy.
Jesus says that he is coming "quickly." We have
to understand that God's timetable is different from
our own. Some view quickness as happening
within seconds or minutes. Others view it in
terms of years or decades. Consider the words
do not let this one fact escape your notice,
Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand
years as one day. 9The Lord is not
slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but
is patient toward you,
for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
10But the day of the Lord will come like
a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a
roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense
heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.
11Since all these things are to be
destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you
to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12looking
for and hastening the coming of the day of God, on
account of which the heavens will be destroyed by
burning, and the elements will melt with intense
heat! 13But according to His promise we
are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in
which righteousness dwells. 14Therefore,
beloved, since you look for these things, be
diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and
blameless, 15and regard the patience of
our Lord to be salvation; just as also our beloved
brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him,
wrote to you... 2 Peter 3:8-15 (NAS)
If God looks at a thousand years as just a
day...then it has only been a little less than two
days since Jesus ascended to heaven. God is
not in a hurry, but is
you...not wishing for any to perish..."
If you need to get right with God, do not
wait...as the day of the Lord will come
unexpectedly...as it says above
"like a thief in the night."
