It was the Word of God for those who first heard its reading in the churches of Asia. It was the Word of God for believers who were being persecuted in the third century. It was the Word of God for the reformers in the sixteenth century. And it is the Word of God for us. But it is the Word of God not because it helps us figure out God's mysterious plans and times, as if God had presented us with a puzzle, but because it calls us to be faithful in all circumstances and in every difficulty. If those who heard the reading of the letter for the first time were surprised when hearing that after the seventh seal what comes is a period of silence, what this teaches us is that this book has been given to us not so that we may guess or try to discover what comes next, but so that we may see, based on the eternal purposes of God, what must be the nature of our obedience here and now.

The final word will be the Lord's. Act: Most of us today do not suffer persecution and opposition like that confronting those churches of Asia Minor.
