Divisions (run-on sentence OK, direct verbiage from Scripture):

1
6-11
Jesus is Coming Soon:  Keep the Words of this Prophecy
Principle:
All Scripture is trustworthy and true and should lead us to worship God alone!
2
12-16
Jesus is Coming Soon:  Prepare for the Return of the King
Principle:
Serving Christ now prepares us to serve Him when He returns and throughout eternity.
3
17-21
Jesus is Coming Soon:  Come to Him Now and Experience His Grace
Principle:
Obeying Scripture leads to reward while adding to or taking away from it leads to suffering.

 

Subject Sentence (10-word sentence with proper structure):

Jesus promises He’s coming soon and blesses His obedient people.

 

Aim:

TCMATK Jesus’ return is imminent and we should use the time before that moment to read and study His Word and share His love, grace and gospel message, preparing ourselves and others for the coming kingdom.

 

Application:

1
How has the study of the book of Revelation led you to worship God?
In what way has your worship of Christ changed your relationships with other people?
What are you doing to “keep the words of this prophecy”?
2
What should you be doing for Christ now and what will you give up to add it to your schedule?
How will you show Jesus that He is your “Alpha & Omega, 1st & Last, Beginning & End” this week?
What are you doing to “keep your robes clean” while you await Jesus’ return?
3
In what ways are you coming to Jesus to satisfy your thirst?
When might you be tempted to add to or take away from the words of Scripture and how will you protect yourself from doing so?
What action will you take this week to be sure the grace of Jesus is with God’s people?
