This morning we come to the last paragraphs of the last chapter of Revelation and it is a more than fitting close to the book and to the bible as a whole. We see in these closing lines a call back to the book, an emphasis on the very words given to John by God.
We see here why Christians have long been called a people of the book. The book is trustworthy and true, firsthand witness of a man who saw the visions about which he wrote. In calling the church to the book, the deeper reason is that we are people of the Savior and he has given us a book! Our Savior, the Alpha & Omega, the root & descendant of David, promises many times in our passage that he is coming soon and he will judge. Our response is to be keepers of the word and worshipers of our Savior.
