Military operations require extensive planning. A Concept Plan (CONPLAN) contains the combatant commander’s strategic concept and other information deemed necessary by the combatant commander to complete planning. The plan speaks to some future time, but does not specify the exact date and time.
“Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near” (Revelation 1:3, NKJV).
The Book of Revelation, in many respects, is God’s CONPLAN for the future. It doesn’t lay out all the details, but it does sketch the concept and information necessary for His army to be ready when the plan is actually executed. This verse provides excellent counsel and guidance for every soldier. In essence, it says, “You will be blessed if you read and obey what this plan says. Don’t fool around. The plan will become reality soon!” So we don’t have to fear the future. God has it all mapped out and under control. And in His time He will execute it. Be ready. Follow His guidance!
