Dearly beloved brethren, the church of Thyatira, places before all Bible believing believers of all ages and you in particular, a challenging lifestyle worth of emulation.

They conscientiously laboured for the advancement of Christ kingdom.

You must never ever forget, that Jesus our Lord equipped every Bible believing believer of all ages including you to be occupied till He comes.

In fact the blessed Holy Spirit says you in particular is a labourer with God

Luke 19:13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

In addition, it should delight you than our Lord is seeing and documenting your entire labour of love and He shall reward you adequately.

Malachi 3:16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 3:17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 3:18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not

Hebrews 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Colossians 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Revelation 22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. – Revelation 2:19

See how the commendation about their works were anplified.

I know all the things you do. I have seen your love, your faith, your service, and your patient endurance. And I can see your constant improvement in all these things.

I know your record and what you are doing, your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your recent works are more numerous and greater than your first ones.

Beloved brethren, are you doing anything for Christ to advance His kingdom?

Your answer should be affirmative yes, but if it is no, begin to do something for the advancement of His kingdom immediately.

These brethren according to our Lord abounded in good works. See it yourself.

1 Timothy 6:11

I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. – Revelation 2:19

(5.) Their growing fruitfulness: their last works were better than the first.

Revelation 2:19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

This was an excellent character when others had left their first love, and lost their first zeal, these were growing wiser and better.

It should be the ambition and earnest desire of all Christians that their last works may be their best works, that they may be better and better every day, and best at last.

Receive grace to do likewise in Jesus name.

Revelation 2:19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
