I John ... was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Revelation 1.9.

Due to his faithfulness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus, 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. Oh, for John at that time the earth was receding and heaven was opening. This reminds us, does it not, of Joseph in the tower, Moses in the wilderness, David in his constant tribulation, and Paul in bonds. How these all received fresh revelations! John, then, followed in the footsteps of these men and received a vision he had never known before. He came to know the Lord who sits on the throne.
