Information is good, but transformation is best. (Rom. 12:1-2)
Revelation promises a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation 21:1)
Joy and rejoicing from born-again believers produce emotion (gladness, cheering, praise, singing, thanks, etc.), but the object of the emotion is always the source of our joy—the Lord Jesus our Savior, King, and Creator.
We may not know until we get to heaven why God allowed certain things to happen. Meanwhile, we walk by faith and say with Job, “Blessed be the name of the Lord."
God’s Wrath is not for us. Revelation 6:15 - 17
“Will you be ready when Jesus comes?” 2 Peter 3:3 - 15
To God be the glory for the things HE has done!
The Laodiceans were an independent church that had need of nothing, but they were not abiding in Christ and drawing their power from Him.
The Laodicean church was independent, self-satisfied, and secure. “We have need of nothing!” But all the while, their spiritual power had been decaying; their material wealth and glowing statistics were but shrouds hiding a rotting corpse. Their Lord was outside the church, trying to get in (Rev. 3:20).
It is not the size or strength of a church that determines its standing, but the faithfulness to God’s command. (Rev. 3:8)
I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Revelation 3:8
“Again……what am I hearing in these messages, but I am NOT yet doing?” (which church most resembles you now) Rev. 3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
What am I hearing in these messages but NOT yet doing?
Study the Word in small doses but live it daily and boldly. 2 Tim. 3:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
“The key to blessings from scripture: read, listen and obey!” Rev. 1:3
