TEXT: Revelation 22:10-13
At the end of the Revelation, the angel gives John a command. He says, "Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand." Revelation has typically been seen as a book of mystery and hidden meanings, hard to understand and apply to real life. In the Old Testament, prophets such as Daniel were commanded to "shut up the vision: for it shall be for many days." But John is told not to seal up the vision, but to let it remain open for all to see. Why? Because "the time is at hand."
