Revelation Word_“Blessed”_Bible Study
 
Revelation 1:3
Blessed is he that readeth,
and they that hear the words of this prophecy,
and keep those things which are written therein:
for the time is at hand.
 
Revelation 14:13
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me,
Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth:
Yea, saith the Spirit,
that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
 
Revelation 19:9
And he saith unto me,
Write, Blessed are they which are called unto
the marriage supper of the Lamb.
And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
 
Revelation 20:6
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection:
on such the second death hath no power,
but they shall be priests of God and of Christ,
and shall reign with him a thousand years.
 
Revelation 22:7
Behold, I come quickly:
blessed is he that keepeth
the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
 
Revelation 22:14
Blessed are they that do his commandments,
that they may have right to the tree of life,
and may enter in through the gates into the city.
 
For years, I have noticed that extremely early on, in
 the very 3rd verse of
The Book Of Revelation
it states that we are:
blessed” if we read, hear, & keep the
those things which are written therein.
I have noticed too,
that this same emphasis is repeated in Revelation 22:7,
in the very last chapter!
 
It looks like Our Lord was trying to show us something
which is very important here!
 
Who Wants To Be Blessed?!
I Sure Do!!
 
I remember, on many occasions,
I would be pondering these statements in
The Book Of Revelation,
& I would pull out my Bible,
& begin to read Scriptures in that Book,
in particular!
 
Why?
 
I was simply thinking that it would be a
Great thing to be “Blessed” that day!
And what a very simple way to do so!
Just…READ!!!
 
Of course, we can read it out loud too, if we desire;
Then we are “Blessed” in TWO ways!!
 
I have pondered the meaning of  keeping
“those things which are written therein”,
& keeping
“the sayings of the prophecy of this book”.
 
I was just thinking, how does one usually “keep” sayings?
Normally, a person reads them, or hears them.
Then they think upon them, & sometimes, they write them down,
& also, they repeat them to others, either verbally, or in writing.
 
So, these would be some ways to “keep” them!
 
Of course, one needs to know the content of
exactly what those “sayings” are,
in order to “keep” them!
Ergo, the necessity of reading & hearing The Book Of Revelation!
 
I am reminded here, of this Scripture:
John 8:32
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
 
One other thing that piques my attention is this:
Revelation 22:14!
 
As a young teenager, around the age of 13,
I was led by the Lord {I believe}
To open the Bible at home
{neither our church, nor my family seemed to encourage this}.
And it seemed as though I was compelled to turn to:
 
Revelation 22: 14-15
 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments,
that they may have right to the tree of life,
and may enter in through the gates into the city.
 
 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers,
and murderers, and idolaters,
and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
 
I became very convicted at this,
as I knew I had lied to my Mamma, at times.
I tried VERY HARD, from that point on,
to NOT lie anymore, or do any wrong.
 
I KNEW from reading this Scripture, that I had done wrong {sinned},
& that I was in danger of missing Heaven, & entering hell instead, if I died.
I tried, with a MAJOR PURPOSE
{concerning where I would spend eternity},
TO BE GOOD!!
 
Of course, my efforts were thwarted, as NO ONE is “perfect”!
 
Romans 3:10
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
 
So, I was a quite nervous person, in that I DID NOT KNOW…
Where I would spend eternity!!
 
About 4 years later in my life,
After “spinning my wheels”, in trying to “earn” salvation,
The Lord was gracious enough to send me
A woman who was a missionary/nurse, to share the
Good News of the Gospel, with me!!
Praise God!
 
Proverbs 25:25
As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
Romans 10:15
And how shall they preach, except they be sent?
as it is written,
How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace,
and bring glad tidings of good things!
 
By the way, I received the
Good News of the Gospel
IMMEDIATELY!
I was VERY spiritually “hungry”!!
 
So, in concluding my comments here,
I would say that,
By reading
The Book of Revelation,
When I was yet, so young,
& by heeding it’s sayings,
I was VERY BLESSED!!!!!!
I WAS SAVED!!!
And became a Christian Believer after that!
 
And not just in “name only”,
 nor in my mind only,
But in my heart!
It was REAL now!!!
Praise Jesus Christ!!
 
Romans 10:9
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved.
Romans 10:10
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
 
I Pray that you will
Be Blessed
In reading this
