6/6/10 Everything John saw, heard, and understood God guarantees to be true and will happen. The same God who gave the prophecies to other prophets gives them to John. The past prophecies have come about without fail, so will this one.
God’s design for Revelation was to show his people the things that necessarily must happen in this drama, so that we will not be discouraged. We can see that God has foreseen it all and that he is in control.
He is coming quickly to put an end to sin. Though the process seems drawn out to us, in the grand scheme it’s not long.
We must pay attention to this prophecy. John puts his own signature to the book. Once again he feels the need to worship and falls down before the angel. But the angel again tells John that God is the only one we are to worship. That is what this whole controversy has been about.
