The Last Prayer In the Bible
The book of Revelation was written by the Apostle John while he was on the Island of Patmos, a small island in the Aegean Sea, southwest of Ephesus.
John was exiled there by the Roman Emperor, Domition, the brother of Titus. Titus, you will remember, had destroyed the city of Jerusalem some 25 years earlier.
Revelation 22:20 Jesus has just said: Yes, I am coming soon. The final prayer of the Bible then prays for the final words of Jesus to be answered: Amen. Come Lord Jesus (22.20b). That is the last prayer we read of in Scripture:Come Lord Jesus.
This is the last doctrine in the Bible. This teahing is referred to in one out of every 25 verses in the New Testament. Jesus will come personally, visibly, triumphantly, and suddenly .
The suddenness, the fswiftness of His coming is taught three times in the last chapter.
''Come Lord Jesus" - this last prayer of the Bible is an expression of the desire of His Church from the beginning until now.
All our hopes are in Him. His is the glory we want to see
If verse 20 is the final prayer of God's people, what happens in verse 21? Verse 21 is God's answer to the prayer of His people. The book of Revelation has been about the challenges and opposition God's people will face, all the while having the picture of the throne of the Lamb in the background. God reigns and rules. So, the final prayer is for Jesus to come and take them to glory and God's answer is: the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people. Amen.
