Revelation 3:20 — Only by Listening to the Lord’s Voice Can We Welcome the Lord
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
– Revelation 3:20
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
This verse tells us how to welcome the second coming of Jesus Christ in the last days. Jesus Christ’s words have made it clear to us that Jesus Christ returns to speak His words and knock at man’s door. For two thousand years, believers in the Lord have been watching and waiting for Jesus Christ to knock. Then how will Jesus Christ knock at our door when He comes again? Jesus Christ said, “I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come” (John 16:12–13). There Revelation prophesied many times, “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches” (Revelation 2:7).
From these verses, we can see that Jesus Christ will express all the truths when He comes again. These truths are words from the Spirit to the churches, as well as the voice of the Bridegroom. Jesus Christ returns in the last days to speak His words and knock at our door. The wise virgins are able to hear God’s voice and behold the appearance and work of God, and thus they follow God’s footprints, welcome Jesus Christ, be taken before God’s throne and attend the wedding banquet with Him. If we want to welcome the second coming of Jesus Christ and sit at the table with Him and enjoy the blessings of the kingdom of heaven, we should proactively seek and investigate when we hear someone bearing witness to the second coming of Jesus Christ and preaching that His expression is the words from the Spirit to the churches. And we should measure whether His words are the truth, the voice of God. This is the practical way that the wise virgins welcome the bridegroom.
