    Revelation is unique in its specific promise that servants who read, understand and do the “words written in it” will “be blessed” or happy. We are more likely to think of Revelation as apocalyptic events rather than a “How To” book on happiness. But Revelation specifically claims to show a path to happiness for believers in Jesus as its primary application.   More importantly, I have come to appreciate God’s enduring faithfulness to His Word and His promise to redeem the time. Joel 2: declares: So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, my great army which I sent among you. There we will find his forgiveness and experience his redeeming grace. His word is realistic: “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans ). However, the next verse promises that we “are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (v. 24).
