I’m told the very word Revelation means “the lifting of the veil.” In other words, when we read the book of Revelation, the veil over Jesus will be lifted, and we will know him as we have never known Him. Knowing Him IS “Intimacy Personified.” Verse 3 of chapter 1 excites me. “A joyous blessing rests upon the one who reads this message and upon those who hear and embrace the words of this prophecy, for the appointed time is in your hands.”* I interpret this to mean there is one who reads and those who listen. They can only listen if the reader reads aloud. In my case, I am both reader and listener.
I have been waiting for the appointed time for ages, or so it seems, and it appears that time is actually in my hands. I can’t answer for you, but the one thing I want in life is to know Jesus as my personal Savior, my personal Redeemer, and my personal Friend. Whatever I do, I want it to bring me closer to Jesus and to know Him better than I know myself! When I discovered the book of Revelation is designed to give me everything I want: wisdom and knowledge of my Lord Jesus Christ, I was ecstatic! Join me in my discovery.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away, and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
