Laodicea, Free Food (Revelation 3:14-22)

Laodicea, Free Food (Revelation 3:14-22)

Laodicea’s problem was that they said “I have need of nothing!” When a Church of God speaks like this it leaves a TASTE in Jesus’ mouth … a taste he wants to vomit out! Jesus gives the church a straightforward command if they want to avoid being Jesus’ throw-up, and that is BE ZEALOUS and Repent! Zealous means earnest or Fervent. This is what Jesus means by Hot and COLD… He is not saying either be Good or Bad, but rather be Passionate / fervent to Christ. Jesus is saying – you’re not satisfying to me because you think you have NO NEED of me, you have no Fervor! – Let me tell you, “you can never be too fervent for Christ!”

Thyatira Trouble with Tolerance (Revelation 2:18-29)

Thyatira Trouble with Tolerance (Revelation 2:18-29)

Thyatira was a pretty good church, it had all three of the primary graces of Christianity. But it had the wrong kind of tolerance. Jesus directs the most council to this church because of the seriousness of compromise when it comes to the essentials of our faith and the conduct of our worship. The solution Jesus gives is to know Him as the Son of God, and to observe carefully what he does.

Revelation Of (Revelation 1:1-3)

Revelation Of (Revelation 1:1-3)

The first eight verses have been seen by many great commentators as John’s introduction or prologue. These form an excellent road map for where the Book will take us. And it gives us hope for what we will find in a book many are reticent of – because it focuses us on Christ as Victor and Prophet! Behind it all we see that God reveals because He loves His people!
