The that Angel announces Jesus’ birth, Revelation 22:6-21

An angel announced Jesus’ Birth and Resurrection and here the angel announces his return to reign in power for ever and ever.

Even Jesus says He is coming soon what ever that may mean. We live in a time domain were the God head lives in state that does not have a time component.

God has told us what has to happen to bring to a close of this time dependent world and its inherent problems.

Revelation 22:18-9 is the famous verse that says: I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

Background Reading:

The Angel

11:6 He told me, “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord God of the spirits and of the prophets has sent his messenger to show his servants the things that must happen soon.”

7 “See! I am coming soon! How blessed is the person who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book!”

The Vision of an Exhortation to Worship God

8 I, John, heard and saw these things. When I had heard and seen them, I bowed down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing me these things. 9 But he told me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you, your brothers the prophets, and those who keep the words in this book. Worship God!”

10 Then he told me, “Don’t seal up the words of the prophecy in this book, because the time is near. 11 Let the one who does what is evil continue to do what is evil. Let the filthy person continue to be filthy. Let the righteous person continue to do what is right. And let the holy person continue to be holy.”

Concluding Benediction

12 “See! I am coming soon! My reward is with me to repay everyone according to his behavior. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.

14 “How blessed are those who wash their robes so that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city! 15 Outside are dogs, sorcerers, immoral people, murderers, idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give this testimony to you for the churches. I am the root and descendant of David, the bright morning star.”

Concluding Invitation

17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!”

Let everyone who hears this say, “Come!”

Let everyone who is thirsty come!

Let anyone who wants the water of life take it as a gift!

Concluding Warning

18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy in this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will strike him with the plagues that are written in this book. 19 If anyone takes away any words from the book of this prophecy, God will take away his portion of the tree of life and the holy city that are described in this book.

Epilogue

20 The one who is testifying to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!”

Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!

21 May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints.

Amen.
