Jesus gives His last promise in the Book of Revelation

See also

If you use a red-letter edition of the Bible, you will see that the last recorded words of Jesus Christ are found in the book of Revelation. Jesus made a promise in those last words. His promise should be hope for those who have a personal intimate relationship with Him.

Jesus testified to the truth of those things writing in the book of prophecy by saying, "Surely I come quickly." Then John says, "Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus." (Revelation 22:20) Those who love the Lord wants Him to come quickly.

The word "soon" means "in the near future" "fast" and "quickly." "Soon" also means "at any moment." We don't know the day or the hour when Jesus will return, but He is coming quickly and unexpectedly. This promise is good news for those who have been faithful and will be rewarded for their obedience. This promise is not good news for those who have rejected Him and will be punished for their disobedience.

Since "soon" means "at any moment," we must be ready at all times. We must always be prepared for Jesus' return. Be no place you would not like to be when Jesus returns. Do nothing you would not like to be doing when Jesus returns. Say nothing you would not like to be saying when Jesus returns. Every Christian should be homesick for heaven and should say like John, "So let it be! Come, Lord Jesus!" Would Jesus' sudden appearance at any moment catch you off guard?
