Words of Comfort – Revelation 22:7 – 22:16

Behold I come quickly

A young man who was preaching his first sermon announced his text in Revelation 22 and read, “Behold I come quickly.” At that point his mind went blank and he couldn’t think of anything else to say. Then he remembered being told that if this happens to you, just repeat your text. So he said again, “Behold I come quickly.” but still couldn’t remember what to say. Frustrated he decided to raise his voice and say it again. Just as he did he tripped and fell into the lap of a little old lady sitting in the front row. Very embarrassed, he told the lady how sorry he was. She said, don’t feel bad, “you warned me three times you were coming and I still didn’t get out of the way.” (Source unknown).
