20 He who testifies these things says, "Surely I come quickly. Amen." Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
16 Repent, or else I will come to you quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. [Notice, in the Book of Revelation, Jesus emphasizes the necessity of repentance from all sins; but the Christians of today think they have no need to repent, presuming that they are excused from all the warnings of Jesus and all the Bible's stated exclusions, requirements, and qualifying conditions of salvation; they also overlook that every man will be judged on his works and words. So today's Christians, listening to the words of the scriptures, hear them like a beautiful song that is sweet to their ears, but they fail to apply the commands to themselves — always thinking the warnings and commands apply to bad people, not righteous believing people like themselves; so they do not obey the commands of repentance from sin that they hear or read, remaining slaves to sin; and then they are banned from heaven when they die.]
12 "Behold, I come quickly! And my reward is with me, to give to every man according to his works.
25 But what you already have, hold fast until I come. [2000 years ago, He told these people "hold fast until I come!" Jesus does not deceive people, and the people He addressed are long gone from this earth. For his statement to be true, He had to have come to them thousands of years ago. He comes to every man in all generations who has worked hard to follow His spoken commands to them. The return of Jesus is a personal experience in the hearts of purified believers; He is seen, He appears, He is revealed. From the Word of the Lord within: "I will come again to the elect; I will be their crown to lead and guide them."]
7 Behold, I come quickly; blessed is he who keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this book."
11 Behold, I am coming quickly. Hold fast to what you have, so that no man takes your crown.
|Revelation 2:5 |
5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come to you quickly, and will remove your candlestick out of its place — unless you repent.2
