Revelation 1:1 ‘which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place’.
God has brought revelation that we might know the times and the seasons we are living in.
Many believe that they will prepare themselves when the time comes but the implication here is that there will be no time to prepare and they will be tragically caught unprepared.
Matthew 25:13 ‘Therefore, keep watch because you do not know the day or the hour.’
This revelation comes from the very heart of God and is meant to be shared.
God made the revelation known to us because He does not intend us to walk around blindfold. He wants us to be prepared for the days ahead and we would be foolish not to heed His advice and warnings. He has made known to us the mystery of his will.
Amos 3:7 ‘Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets’.
Matthew 24:25 ‘Jesus says: ‘See, I have told you ahead of time.’
