22:16-21 COME!

“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.’ And the Spirit and the bride say, 'Come.' And let him that hears say, 'Come.' And let him that is thirsty come. And whoever will, let him take the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:16,17).

Jesus expressed His deepest desire, a desire that impelled Him to "empty Himself," leave heaven, and take upon Himself the sins of the whole world, with the invitation: "Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28). Jesus ends the Revelation of Himself with a similar personal appeal to all "who thirst." "The Spirit," who comes in Jesus' name, says "come!" So does "the bride," symbolizing the whole kingdom of God, all the angels and "living creatures" who have been watching with intense interest as the great controversy between good and evil unfolds on planet earth. And Jesus urges those of us "who hear," who have already responded to Jesus' invitation, to join our voices, inviting those around us to "come!"

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ” has not been given simply to be a source of prophetic information. It is, rather, an appeal to come to Jesus, so that He can take away our guilt and shame wipe away every tear, satisfy every thirst with the water of life and every hunger from the tree of life. Jesus pleads to each one of us personally, “Hear what the Spirit says” (Revelation 2:7,11,17,29, 3:6,13,22)

He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!"

"The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22: 20,21).
