A Devotional Thought From Revelation
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Revelation 22:20
In the book of Revelation it is Jesus, Himself, who is testifying, or announcing, the things herein recorded. Look back at the first verse of the book (Rev. 1:1) and we find God, the Father, gave the revelation to Jesus for the purpose of showing to his servants (those who trust in Him, and love Him, and serve Him) what will be happening “shortly.” From our human perspective we do not understand what “shortly” means in God’s understanding of time. What we do know is what is revealed here will happen sometime.
So when Jesus says at the end of the prophecy, “Surely I come quickly,” again we don’t know what “quickly” means in His God understanding of time. We do know that He keeps His word, He means what He says, and He will come.
We who love Him believe Jesus is coming again. We are glad He is coming, and John speaks for all of us when he says, “Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”
