John saw horrible visions of the future—dreadful plagues, cosmic disturbances, vicious wars and an evil ruler. The greatest comfort in the midst of these horrendous predictions was Christ’s simple promise: “Yes, I am coming soon” (Revelation 22:20).
Though “soon” may feel relatively far-off and safe to you, it’s nearer than you think. Are you ready for Christ’s return? Are you right with God? Is your life pleasing to him? Have you told others in your life the Good News about Jesus? He is coming soon! If you are ready for his return, then let this be your prayer of comfort: “Come, Lord Jesus!”
