Prophecy – Part 42, Love

by

Today, we will begin our focus on the church at Philadelphia and discover what we can gain from the study to be a lighthouse for Jesus, a church that attempts to love each other and thereby show the Lord Jesus Christ that we love Him (John 14:15). “A new commandment I give TO YOU, that […]

Prophecy – Part 41, Sovereignty

by

Previously we have been examining the church at Sardis, attempting to understand why Christ classified Sardis as a dead and dying church.  We have considered such biblical principles as being hypocritical, separation, and Holiness.   Today we want to consider the Sovereignty of Christ, or the Sovereignty of God, since He is GOD! In Matthew 28:18 […]

Prophecy – Part 40, Separation

by

Today, we think further about the church at Sardis and we will continue to consider their failure, from God’s point of view.    Remember, the Lord Jesus declared they were a dead church, very few were still alive [spiritually], but even those were in the process of dying. NOTE:  Sardis had a spiritual problem, no doubt […]

Prophecy, Sardis – Part 38, Challenge

by

Often when we are looking at a disobedient church, we need a blessing.  God’s statement about this church is that it is “dead”!

Prophecy, Thyatira – Part 36 – Christ

by

In our last study we looked at the subject of “overcomers” because that word is used by Christ in reference to all Seven Churches found in chapters two and three of Revelation.  Today we will investigate further the church at Thyatira and things in that culture. We are reminded that it is the Lord Jesus […]
