When Pope Urban had urbanely said thes and very similar things, he so centered in one purpose the desires all who were present that all cried out, ” It is the will of God! I It is the. will of God 1 ” When the venerable Roman pontiff heard that, with eyes uplifted to heaven, he gave thanks to God and, commanding silence with his hand, said:

“Most beloved brethren, today is manifest in you what the Lord says in the Gospel, `Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them’; for unless God had been present in your spirits, all of you would not have uttered the same cry; since, although the cry issued from numerous mouths, yet the origin of the cry as one. Therefore I say to you that God, who implanted is in your breasts, has drawn it forth from you. Let that then be your war cry in combats, because it is given to you by God. When an armed attack is made upon the enemy, this one cry be raised by all the soldiers of God: ‘It is the will of God! It is the will of God!’ [Deus vult! Deus Vult!]

The Time Is Near! Rev 22:6.21

John has seen the picture of God’s care over His followers in their conflict;
the certainty of their triumph over the terrible conditions of the day; and, the
glory which is beyond the grave. All that remains is the necessity of impressing
upon them the importance of this message.

 

 
The time is near – BELIEVE GOD’S WORD! (v. 6, 7, 10).

The time is near – KEEP THE FELLOWSHIP PURE! (v. 8,9,14,15,18,19).

The time is near – PREPARE TO MEET JESUS! (v. 12,13,16,11).

The time is near – ACCEPT CHRIST’S INVITATION! (v. 17).

The time is near – BE EXCITED ABOUT CHRIST’S RETURN! (v. 20,22).
