v1 This book describes the things that God showed to Jesus Christ. He wanted Jesus to show these things to his own servants. These events must happen soon. Jesus sent his *angel to show these things to his servant John.
v2 John has told everything that he saw then. These things are a true message from God. Jesus Christ really said these things. v3 God will be good to the person who reads aloud the words of this *prophecy. God will also be good to all those people who listen to these words. So, if they obey these words, all these people will be really happy. I, John, have written all that I saw. Those people who hear these words should remember them. These things are very important and they will happen soon.
