Revelation 22

Chapter 22

v. 10: Compare this to Daniel 12:4.  There Daniel is told to “shut up the words and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”  After the angel says this, Daniel confesses that he is confused as to the proper interpretation of the vision he is recording, but in Daniel 12:9, the angel says, “Go your way Daniel for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end,” as if to say, “You are not allowed to understand the vision right now, simply to witness and record it.”  Shutting up the words and sealing the book, therefore, must mean hiding the proper interpretation or hiding the actual physical record of the vision.  Here in Revelation 22:10, however, John is told not to seal the words of the prophecy “for the time is at hand.”
