God of Creation, from beginning to end you are Elohim. Lord Jesus, you are Alpha and Omega. Time and tide heed no man, but you control them both. I thank you for the prophets. I thank you for the apostles. Their eyewitness accounts of your testimony are golden to me. Your teachings jump from the page and captivate my heart. Any day could be my last in the land of the living and my first in glory. I am blessed and encouraged by every word that comes in your testament of truth. My spirit revels in your nearness by the authority of your word, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.” (Revelation 1:3 ESV)
