 Don't seal up the WORDS Jesus said.

Rev 22:10-11
10 Then he told me, "Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, because the time is near. 11 Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong; let him who is vile continue to be vile; let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy."
(from New International Version)

Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the
prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God
shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

Rev 22:19
19 And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
(from New International Version)

Rev 10:4-7

4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me,Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

The time is near?

Question: How near is near?

I ask this question because Jesus said it to John almost 2000 years ago. We have bible thumpers saying the same words today.

Question: If the bible word for "near" means a time span of 2000 years, how long is "near" today spoken by preachers? If "near" is a 2000 year span, than if I am rightly dividing the word, I would conclude that "near" today is the same that was spoken by our LORD in Revelations.

The Greek word for "near" is better translated "at hand." It doesn't carry the meaning that it [i]must[/i] happen soon; rather, that it could happen at any time. It's better understood in how people in Los Angeles California are waiting for the "big one" to hit. They know a very large and devastating earthquake is "at hand." But that "at hand" could be tommorrow or it could be a thousand years from now.

Really Compliments, was that necessary? Bible Thumpers is a derogatory term (The ONLY people I hear use that term are unbelievers who make fun of Christians...it's getting really Oh! 2 Timothy 3 .in the professing Church lately). Let’s leave such words out of our speech that is to be seasoned with salt and filled with Grace.

Don't be one of those who Peter refers to as

"In the last days, there will be scoffers saying...where is the promise of His Coming".

Thanks for that very clear exposition, a great help. :-)
