The Seven Beatitudes of Revelation

Here are the Seven Beatitudes of Revelation:

Revelation 1:3:  “Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.”

Revelation 14:13:  “Then I heard a voice form heaven say, ‘Write:  Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’  ‘Yes,’ says the Spirit, ‘They will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.'”

Revelation 16:15:  “Behold, I come like a thief!  Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”

Revelation 19:9:  “Then the angel said to me, ‘Write:  Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!’  And he added, ‘These are the true words of God.'”

Revelation 20:6:  “Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection.  The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.”

Revelation 22:7:  “Behold, I am coming soon!  Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.”

Revelation 22:14:  “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.”

I didn’t even know these existed until this study!  It’s so cool how Jesus gave us the Beatitudes on the Sermon on the Mount as well as these through the angel.  Awesome!

As we go through out study, be aware of these final words of wisdom from Jesus.  A great website HERE explains them thoroughly.

  1. I am excited, yet nervous about this study. I am saving your posts in my computer and I want to thank you for this helps.

  2. Lissette says:

    I loved this:

    An eager young man asked God, “What’s a million years like to you?” God patiently replied, “My son, it’s like one second in time.” The man then inquired, “And, what’s a million dollars like to you?” Once again, God complied, “A million dollars is but like a penny.”

    The young man, thinking he had put two and two together, went for the bonus question and asked, “God, can you give me just one of Your pennies?” God smiled and replied, “Yes, my son, but you’ll have to wait a second!”

    Just like that young man, all of us responding to Christ’s invitation of “Follow Me” would sincerely love to possess one of “God’s pennies” in recognizing the unfathomable spiritual riches of God’s Kingdom. Truth be told, just like the young man, we too have to wait out that “second.”

    God knows that. Likewise we need to recognize that, as human beings, we want everything now! But God in His awesome wisdom is allowing something special to develop in us—His love, His patience and the same faith exhibited by Jesus when walking this earth. There’s no getting around the fact that such desired outcomes require those age-lasting “seconds.”
