I used to think paperback books were a thing of the past. With all the smartphones, smart tv’s and IPads, who still read paperback books? My mom used to read a ton of books until the print got too small for her eyesight. Now she reads on her tablet.
Today’s verse comes from Revelation 1:3.
“Blessed is he that reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it because the time is near.”
Revelation is one of those books of the Bible many people shy away from. There are various reasons why people don’t read the book of Revelation – too scary; can’t understand it; don’t read the Bible at all; makes no sense; too long.
However, think about something – the verse says those who read the words of the prophecy will be blessed, and those who hear it and take it to heart will be blessed. Why would the Lord allow a statement like that in his Word if it wasn’t true?
You are missing out on blessings from the Lord by not reading the book of Revelation. Wouldn’t you like to know what happens in the end?
Read Revelation and find out what happens to the evil one in this world. Read about how Jesus wins in the end. It’s a great message from the Lord for all who believe.
For those who don’t believe in Jesus Christ, it tells what will happen to them – it’s not pretty. Check it out.
