The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Was Fooled by Thyatira Too

As much as I reject the things we see in Thyatira, I also sympathize. I especially sympathize with the ignorant who are lured into the ways of Thyatira, because that is what I was. I was ignorant of the scriptures and of what the Christian life was really about. I think I spent most ofContinue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Was Fooled by Thyatira Too”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Have Been as Pergamos Too

Stumbling blocks can take many forms. What is a stumbling block? Anytime we behave in such a way as to hinder another’s faith in Jesus, we are casting stumbling blocks. I have done this. I might not use the word of God to justify sinful living, at least not knowingly, but I have done myContinue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Have Been as Pergamos Too”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Pergamos—Let’s Try This Again

I missed an important point when considering the letter to the church of Pergamos, and it is this: thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith. I got hung up on interpreting what “Satan’s seat” means and how we see this today. However, this is not so much the trouble for Pergamos.Continue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: Pergamos—Let’s Try This Again”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Could be More Like Smyrna Too

“Take up your cross and follow me” is a lofty command, and not one I am quick to keep as I should. I look at this in a few ways, and I think the Church of Smyrna is a good example of what this means. We can take up our cross as we take aContinue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Could be More Like Smyrna Too”

This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him.

Jesus said that false prophets would rise, and all the more once His Day approaches. He was right. There are many who want to be prophets, but instead of waiting on the Lord, they force the issue. Let me give you some clues about the false prophets today. First off, they like to use theContinue reading “This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him.”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Smyrna

8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; 9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogueContinue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: Smyrna”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Have Been as Ephesus Too

In my previous article I discussed my interpretation of the church of Ephesus in Revelation 2. If you have not read it, I recommend that you do so that you might understand better what I write now, which are ways in which I have also been as Ephesus. The point of this article series isContinue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Have Been as Ephesus Too”
