Say, “Come”

September 27, 2020   /   Jeff Kliewer   /   Revelation 22:14-21   /   Cornerstone Church

Main Idea
The culminating action point of the entire book is for us to say, “come”.

Revelation 22:14-15
Many will remain outside, but only one thing is needed to come in.

  • Isaiah 61:10 “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the robe of righteousness…”
  • Matthew 22:11 “But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment.”

Revelation 22:16
The eternal “I am” who entered our history is extending the offer.

  • Matthew 22:45 “If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son?”

Revelation 22:17
The offer is to be issued to all, and we will find some “thirsty” for it.

  • Matthew 22:14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”

Revelation 22:18-19
Doctoring Scripture reveals lack of submission to the Author.

  • James 2:25-26 “And in the same way was not also Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead”

Revelation 22:20-21
 “Come, Lord Jesus” is our joyful prayer in this broken world.

  • 2 Timothy 1:8-12 “Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began…and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me.”

Application
In response to being so blessed as to have heard the book of Revelation (1:3) and so blessed to have the right to the tree of life (22:14), with the voices of the Spirit and the Bride ringing in our heads (22:17), let each one of us find someone to whom we can say, “Come”. “Come with me to Church Sunday.” “Come, see a glimpse of Jesus in the worship and the word.” “Come over to my house and we’ll talk about the Way.” “Come with me to this group that meets at this house.” “Come to Jesus.”
