“He will disclose to you what is to come.” – “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.”

Today’s devotion comes from Revelation 22:3-6.

“There will no longer be any curse;  and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him;  they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads.  And there will no longer be any night;  and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them;  and they will reign forever and ever.

And he said to me, “These words are faithful and true”;  and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent His angel to show to His bond-servants the things which must soon take place.”  Revelation 22:3-6.  


Today’s Scripture highlighted in bold italic reminds us of one of the roles of the Holy Spirit.

“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth;  for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak;  and He will disclose to you what is to come.  He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you.  All things that the Father has are Mine;  therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.”  John 16:13-15.

“I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances.”  Ezekiel 36:27. 

Thus, we have both the Word and the Spirit to disclose to us what is to come, to guide us into all the truth, to cause us to heed the words of this book, and to worship God.

“Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.  For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.  When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.”  Colossians 3:2-4.

“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;  who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.”  Philippians 3:20-21.

“He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.”  Amen.  Come, Lord Jesus.”  Revelation 22:20.
