Due to his faithfulness to the Word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ,
John was EXILED to the ISLAND OF PATMOS.
From the human viewpoint, John’s staying in this isolated place was too lonely and pathetic an experience.
YET he neither murmured nor complained,
BECAUSE he knew for whom he suffered.
Praise and thank God,
It is in just such an environment that the glorious Christ appeared to him and gave him new revelation and a renewed trust.
He received a vision he had never known before.
He came to know the Lord who sits on the throne.
