Blessed: the 7 Beatitudes in Revelation (, ; ; ; ; , )

1:3 Blessed. Gk makarios, “happy.” First of seven beatitudes in Rv (cf 14:13; 16:15; 19:9; 20:6; 22:7, 14). Significantly, the number of beatitudes in this writing corresponds to the number of churches addressed in 2:1–3:22. See p 1901. The blessing attached to hearing this Book suggests that John wrote Rv to stand along with the rest of the Scriptures. See pp 2099–2101.

Cursed: a. “I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.” (, ESV)
Why keep what is written in it? For the time is near. (; , )
Connection to first advent: The Jews had been given the Old Testament, the prophecies of Jesus coming. Only a remnant of them kept the prophecies of the Book, the others who didn’t believer were cut off.
