Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no. – Exodus 16:4

 

Beloved, the Bible says my people, God’s own people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

Hosea 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

  But then you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free and promote you.

John 8:32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
 Always remember every opportunity you have to obey God’s words, is set to define you for reward or recompense.
 The God of heaven is interested in proving you in particular whether you will fear Him enough and obey Him or whether your profession of having Him as your heavenly Father is empty and you will disobey Him.

Malachi 1:6  A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?

 Because God is interested in checking up the status of His Fatherhood over your own life in particular, He proves you to know what you will do with His words.
God will help you in particular. As others in Bible days and even our contemporary time triumphed when they were tested. So you too shall triumph in Jesus name.

Deu 8:2 — Deu 8:3  And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
  When God was set to give Israel, special bread from heaven, He did it with a test.
It was very unfortunate that Israel failed Him woefully. You shall not fall Him in Jesus name. See it.

Exodus 16:4  Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.

Exodus 16:28  And the Lord said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?

 Beloved, what the blessed Holy Spirit is revealing to you had been the undoing of some in the Bible  days  and they had paid dearly and even lost privileges and blessings of God.
On the other hand it had been the making of many and had brought them enviable earthly and eternal blessings too. This shall be your portion in Jesus
  Remember the Bible says you should learn from things that happened to others in the time past for your edification and we’ll being.

Romans 15:4  For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

1Co 10:11 — 1Co 10:12  Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

  Beloved see those that lost great privileges and blessings for failing the simple test of God, when they were proved. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.
Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
  1. Adam and Eve.

Gen 2:16 — Gen 2:17  And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

You remember what happened. They believed the devil and disobey the simple instructions and their losses were collosal. See it.

Gen 3:23 — Gen 3:24  Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

2.  King Saul. He and His generation would have enjoyed the kingly position over Israel, but for simple disobedience, he lost it to David.
This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

1Sa 13:9 — 1Sa 13:14  And Saul said, Bring hither a burnt offering to me, and peace offerings. And he offered the burnt offering. And it came to pass, that as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, behold, Samuel came; and Saul went out to meet him, that he might salute him.  And Samuel said, What hast thou done? And Saul said, Because I saw that the people were scattered from me, and that thou camest not within the days appointed, and that the Philistines gathered themselves together at Michmash; Therefore said I, The Philistines will come down now upon me to Gilgal, and I have not made supplication unto the Lord: I forced myself therefore, and offered a burnt offering. And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the commandment of the Lord thy God, which he commanded thee: for now would the Lord have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever. But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the Lord hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the Lord commanded thee.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
However, see those who yielded to God in wholehearted and  prompt obedience.
See how they were favoured with enviable earthly and eternal blessings. This shall be your portion in Jesus name .
Abraham.

Gen 22:1 — Gen 22:3  And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.  And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.

 
Gen 22:11 — Gen 2£2:12  And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I. And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.

Gen 22:15 — Gen 22:18  And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
 
2. Joshua.

Joshua 5:15  And the captain of the Lord’s host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

3. Our Lord Jesus Christ. See His exemplary lifestyle of biblical obedience to our Father in heaven.

Luk 22:41 — Luk 22:42  And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

John 6:38  For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

Phi 2:5 — Phi 2:8  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Heb 5:7 — Heb 5:8  Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
 See His earthly and eternal blessings.

Phi 2:9 — Phi 2:11  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Hebrews 12:2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Beloved permit me with all humility to talk to you in particular.
You do not need any assumption to know whether you shall be part of the dawning rapture  or not.  You do not need a seer  or prophet to tell you, what will happen when the rapture takes place.
You will know now whether you shall be part of it or not. See what the Bible says.

 1 Kings 18:21  And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
Beloved, you need not halt between two options.  You are sure the rapture is imminent and it shall happen, suddenly.
Certainty of the imminent rapture.

1Th 4:15 — 1Th 4:17  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Jn 14:1 — Jn 14:3  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

The suddenness of the event.

1Co 15:51 — 1Co 15:52  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1Th 5:2  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
Beloved, you are also aware that after the event, there shall be indescribable and inexplanable sufferings during the great tribulation.

Mat 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Amo 5:18 — Amo 5:20  Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light. As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
 Our Lord whom we are going to be meeting in the air, who knows the truth, through and through, gave His faithful believers, unfailing Panacea to escape the certain to happen gruesome and fearsome great tribulation.
What have you done about it.
Is it not unfortunate that many so called believers globally presently will strictly follow the instructions of the scientist not to catch Corona virus, but will do next to nothing, to do what our Lord said to avoid great tribulation.
It will be painfully unfortunate, if you in particular is cut in this web also.
See the panacea Jesus gave to avoid the great tribulation.

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
You know you have done nothing about what Jesus said.
It will take obeying the entirety of the scriptures from now till Christ comes to partake in the dawning rapture.
See yourself, you are  still languishing in worldliness.
Your restitutions ,you have not done them.
You are still in that assembly where your eternal well-being is not guaranteed.
The second spouse is still in your house, you are living in daily adultery.
You are still busy pursuing ephemeral that you shall not have access to during the great tribulation except you receive the mark of the Antichrist.
You are still giving bribe and receiving bribe.
Which way are you better than Adam or king Saul?
Remember the blessed Holy Spirit had warned you over and over.  May the Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus.
Why will you be buying what you could buy today with the grace of Christ?
Why will you want to buy them with your blood during the great tribulation?
I am persuaded you are going to be wise and do the sayings of Jesus.

Mat 7:24 — Mat 7:27   Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Begin to do the needful now, so we will not weep in heaven, looking for you. It shall not be so in Jesus name.
Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4

Beloved, at the verge of stepping into liberty after four hundred and thity years captivity of the children of Israel,  God gave them, a very important instruction to characterise their  lifestyle when they get to the promised Land.
All through their lifetime on this side of heaven , irrespective of their status, as a people and as a nation, they must all be ruled and controlled by one law. See it.
 

Exodus 12:49  One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.

 
Because of the importance of this commandment which must be the singular lifestyle of the people, it was severally repeated to them for emphasis.
 

Leviticus 24:22  Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the Lord your God.

Numbers 9:14  And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto the Lord; according to the ordinance of the passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger, and for him that was born in the land.

Numbers 15:29  Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.

 This same principle is to characterise the lifestyle of all believers of all ages until Christ comes in the air to take us home.

Galatians 3:28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Colossians 3:11  Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

This becomes absolutely necessary  because the same  blood and  same  redemptive work of Christ, brought  us  all  to His kingdom.

Acts 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

In addition to this, we are all feeding from the  same  scriptures or the Bible.

Matthew 4:4  But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

  No wonder when our Lord completed His earthly ministry after His resurrection and before His ascension to glory, He gave His
ministers and church , of all ages  a  compelling commandment with eternal blessings  when fully obeyed and  consequences when despised  or rejected. See it.

Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Beloved, if this exhortation is fully obeyed by everyone professing to be believers irrespective of the name of the ministries, they  belong to, we should all have universal biblical  standard of lifestyle.
This is because we are all to be living by one law or the entirety of the words contained in the Bible.
  Very very unfortunately, because the universal church of Christ despised this most compelling commandment of our Lord and commit themselves to doing what they seem to be right,  their is shameful disparity in lifestyle of the so called believers and churches globally.

Judges 21:25  In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes. 

 

Deuteronomy 12:8  Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.

Very unfortunately, this licentious and wilful lifestyle has regrettable and painful  eternal consequences.

Proverbs 14:12  There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Beloved, this is a very serious issue and  you should place the right premium on your precious undying soul.
The buck stops with you. I earnestly pray for you that the dawning rapture shall not elude you and your soul shall not be damned in Jesus name.
Because this shall be so, you must take drastic step now to ensure your precious undying soul is secured and your eternity with God is guaranteed . See what the Bible says.
1. No matter what your minister might say is his or her calling.
No matter what you yourself say is the reason why you continue with a ministry and minister picking and choosing what is convenient in the Bible to preach instead of the entirety of the scriptures. God knows your heart.

Luk 16:15  And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

2. Jesus our Lord left an undeniable legacy for all heaven bound  believers to follow. He did all He taught and commanded His church and ministers  to continue all He taught.

Acts 1:1.  The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

Matthew 5:19  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

1 Timothy 4:16  Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

3. Any word in the Bible, even if it is one, not obeyed shall judge the person in eternity. I earnestly pray for you in particular that God’s unchanging, infallible words in the Bible shall not judge you in eternity in Jesus name.

Jn 12:46 — Jn 12:48  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

4. To help you in particular to be part of the dawning rapture and avoid subsequent great tribulation, you must live by the entirety of the word of God in the Bible.

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

2Ti 3:16 — 2Ti 3:17  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

5. For you in particular not to hear I never know you from the mouth of Christ at eternity. Be wise  now  and do His entire sayings.

Mat 7:21 — Mat 7:27  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

6. One word in the Bible that any minister and his or her congregations failed to live by shall remove their names from the book of life and damn their souls. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

Rev 22:18 — Rev 22:19  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Revelation 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Beloved with your understanding of all of the above. See what the scriptures says shall characterise the lifestyle of nominal churchgoers globally at the end of time.
1. They shall perish because they do not have love for the truth of God’s eternal infallible words.

2Th 2:10 — 2Th 2:12  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2. They shall depart from the faith, meaning they shall forsake the old pathway of God and His entire words in the Bible.

1Ti 4:1 — 1Ti 4:2  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

 
3. They shall be lovers of pleasure and reprobate while professing to Know the Lord.
 

2Ti 3:1 — 2Ti 3:5  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

 
Titus 1:16  They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
4. They shall have itching ears seeking for deceptive ministers and motivational speakers.

2Ti 4:1 — 2Ti 4:4 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

 

Jeremiah 5:31  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

 Because you shall be part of the dawning rapture and live eternally with God in heaven, see His all important exhortations that you must determinedly be obedient to.
1. Avoid any minister or ministry not teaching and living by the entirety of the word of God in the Bible.
 

Rom 16:17 — Rom 16:18  Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

2Jo 1:8 — 2Jo 1:11 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

2. Cut off and Separate yourself from anyone and everyone who are not living by the entirety of the word of God in the Bible.

Mar 9:43 — Mar 9:48  And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

2Co 6:14 — 2Co 6:18  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

The grace of God will be sufficient for you and enable you to meet the godly standard that shall guarantee your readiness for the dawning rapture and your eternal well-being in Jesus mighty name.

2 Corinthians 9:8  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

Tit 2:11 — Tit 2:13  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

Beloved, I earnestly pray for you in particular, that  your lounging and desire to be part of the dawning rapture, shall come to pass and you shall realize this noble and worthwhile dream in Jesus name.
But then you must conscientiously watch out  for the most subtle, most potent weapon, snare and devices of satan..

2Co 2:11  Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

1Ti 3:7  Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

This most subtle snare and devices of satan was the undoing of many in Bible days and even in our own contemporary time.
This was why their precious soul ended in hell. This shall never be your portion in Jesus name.
This snare was the undoing of King Herod,. See it yourself and conscientiously avoid it till Christ comes.

Act 12:21 — Act 12:23  And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost

  No wonder the Bible says he that thinketh he standeth should be very very careful.

1Co 10:11 — 1Co 10:12  Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
Beloved you must discover one great virtue that your Father in heaven place so much premium.
See it yourself.

Psalms 138:6  Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.

Isaiah 57:15  For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

Isaiah 66:2  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

James 4:6  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

1Pe 5:5 — 1Pe 5:6  Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

God your loving Father in heaven hated pride with passion. He doesn’t tolerate it at all. See it.

Pro 6:16 — Pro 6:19  These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,  An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,  A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

This was why Lucifer the most beautiful Cherub, became satan, the most ugly creature of God and destined for the lake of fire.

Isa 14:11 — Isa 14:19 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.  Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.  They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;  That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?  All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.  But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.

Beloved, God created you in particular for His glory, don’t ever forget this.

Isaiah 43:7  Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him..

Never ever give the glory due to your Father in heaven alone to any being, no matter what they do for you. Don’t also give His glory to  yourself.

Isaiah 42:8 I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another,

neither my praise to graven images.
But then always praise Him and point others to Him and  Him alone.

Isaiah 43:21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.

  This was exactly what Moses ,our Lord  Jesus Christ and these other saints were doing.
It brought tremendous blessings to them here on earth and hereafter in heaven.
It shall do same for you here and qualify you to be ready for the dawning rapture in Jesus name.
 Now see as these saints pointing others to heaven, even though, they were doing great exploits. Yet they adduced all the glory to God and Him alone. See them.
Moses glorifying God.  Moses pointing others to God in heaven.

Exo 9:27 — Exo 9:29  And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked. Intreat the Lord (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer. And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the Lord; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the Lord’s.

Exo 8:9 — Exo 8:11  And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only? And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the Lord our God. And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.

Jacob glorifying God.Jacob adduce the children he had to God’s provision.  Jacob. pointing others to God in heaven.

Gen 33:4 — Gen 33:5  And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept. And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who are those with thee? And he said, The children which God hath graciously given thy servant.

Abraham’s servant glorifying God
Abraham’s servant. pointing others to God in heaven.

Gen 24:34 — Gen 24:36  And he said, I am Abraham’s servant. And the Lord hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses. And Sarah my master’s wife bare a son to my master when she was old: and unto him hath he given all that he hath.

Joseph glorifying God.  Joseph pointing others to God in heaven.

Gen 41:15 — Gen 41:16  And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it. And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

Joshua glorifying God.  Joshua pointing others to God in heaven.

Jos 3:9 — Jos 3:11 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and hear the words of the Lord your God. And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites. Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth passeth over before you into Jordan.

Jesus Christ our Lord pointing others to God in heaven.

Jn 8:28 — Jn 8:29 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

Daniel pointing others to God in heaven.

Dan 2:26 — Dan 2:28  The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof? Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king; But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;

Response of King Nebuchadnezzar to the lifting up of God by  Daniel.

Daniel 2:47  The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.

Peter. pointing others to God in heaven.

Act 3:6 — Act 3:13 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God: And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him. And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering. And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.

King Nebuchadnezzar. pointing others to God in heaven

Dan 4:34 — Dan 4:37 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation: And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me. Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

Paul and Barnabas pointing others to God in heaven.

Act 14:8 — Act 14:18  And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked: The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked. And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men. And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker. Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people. Which when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out, And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein: Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways. Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness. And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them.

You too should henceforth point others to God I heaven. Never ever be drawing attention to yourself or others. So that what happened to Lucifer and king Herod will not happen to you. It shall not in Jesus name.
Go and be doing likewise till our Lord Jesus Christ, comes.

Luk 10:37  And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me. So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art, because of the circumcision.

Beloved, I praise the Lord for you because your profession of being a child of God, your profession of being a true and faithful believer and follower of our Lord Jesus Christ is not empty.

During the earthly ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ, someone asked Him a question that should give you in particular a concern. See the question and the gracious answer our Lord gave in response

Luk 13:23 — Luk 13:24 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

If you are going to live with our Lord Jesus Christ for all eternity as a result of His passionate prayer for you in particular, then you must determinedly strive to enter and remain on the strait gate, till the trumpet sound. See His passionate prayer just for you.

John 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

Because God the Father, your loving Father in heaven has answered the prayer of Christ for you, validate this answered prayer by entering and staying on the strait gate till the trumpet sound and you are raptured. You shall be part of the dawning rapture in Jesus name.

Mat 7:13 — Mat 7:14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Beloved, you must also understand and appreciate what will help you to be kept on the strait and narrow road that leads to heaven and also what can bring anyone out irrespective of the numbers of years such have being walking there.

The one singular thing that can make you immovable on that road is consistent delight some obedience to God’s entire unchanging and eternal words.

Jeremiah 7:23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

One singular thing that can take anymore out of the road is compromise and disobedient to the words of God. This was the undoing of king Saul and everyone and anyone else who follow his bad example.

1Sa 15:22 — 1Sa 15:23 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft,and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

However, there is a steep price to be paid by all the faithful followers of Christ and you in particular, before you can render consistent obedience to God’s word.

See this instance to give you a better understanding.

Moses whether among his brethren or far away from them, was a descendant of Abraham.

He ran to Midian to escape the sword of Pharaoh after slaying an Egyptian.

In the foreign land, he got married to a foreign woman who was fiercely averse to circumcision ofl their male children.

This had been an issue and the wife had resisted circumcision of their children.

Now God had called Moses. He could not go back to his brethren with uncircumcised male children and God was set to discipline Moses for his failure to obey the commandment on circumcision.

Moses insisted this must be done. Although it was done, but at a very steep price for Moses.

The wife separated from him and returned to her country with the children of Moses.

Praise God Moses played the man, he continued the journey and fulfilment of the call without the support of the wife, and also hindered from training the children in the way of the Lord.

The wife was brought later, later by his father in-law, but after Moses had suffered separation for many years and have spoiled the children too.

You will notice that none of the two children of Moses had nothing to do with the service of God. What a steep price to pay?

Exo 4:24 — Exo 4:26 And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the Lord met him, and sought to kill him. Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me. So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art, because of the circumcision.
you.

Beloved, like Moses as you follow the Lord Jesus Christ faithfully, you are going to have conflict with others and sometimes members of your household who disagree with what you believe and that will surely open door for unavoidable persecution.

John 17:8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

Now that you have received the word,, you shall suffer inexplanable hatred from everyone who does not believe what you have received. It is more painful, when they are members of your household.

Jn 17:14 — Jn 17:16 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

However, if you are hated, it is the common lots of those who believe the entirety of God’s unfailing words either in the old or new testaments. In fact our Lord suffered same faith. See it yourself.

Jn 15:18 — Jn 15:21 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

Don’t be surprised if you are hated. Don’t backslide. God will see you through in Jesus name.

1Jo 3:13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate

The reason why you should not be surprised is because, every genuine followers of Christ are raised to defend the gospel with their life and blood. Don’t ever forget this.

Philippians 1:17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.

As you defend the gospel of our Lord, you shall suffer for it. It is unavoidable, except you compromise or backslide. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name

Philippians 1:29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

Beloved, see the following saints who suffered for believing and obeying the entirety of the word of God.

Our Lord Jesus Christ was not exempted. In fact, He was killed for defending the gospel. See it.

1. Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Mat 26:63 — Mat 26:68 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy. What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death. Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands, Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?

2. Stephen

Act 7:51 — Act 7:60 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers: Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it. When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul. And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

3. The three Hebrews.

Dan 3:14 — Dan 3:23 Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up? Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands? Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated. And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

4. Daniel

Dan 6:10 — Dan 6:16 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime. Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God. Then they came near, and spake before the king concerning the king’s decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask a petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not. Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day. Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him. Then these men assembled unto the king, and said unto the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed. Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.

5. John the beloved.

Revelation 1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

6. Paul kept in prison for two years for refusing to give Felix the governor bribe.

Act 24:25 — Act 24:27 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee. He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him. But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.

7. Jeremiah thrown into the dungeon because of God’s unfailing words.

Jer 38:1 — Jer 38:6 Then Shephatiah the son of Mattan, and Gedaliah the son of Pashur, and Jucal the son of Shelemiah, and Pashur the son of Malchiah, heard the words that Jeremiah had spoken unto all the people, saying, Thus saith the Lord, He that remaineth in this city shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth forth to the Chaldeans shall live; for he shall have his life for a prey, and shall live. Thus saith the Lord, This city shall surely be given into the hand of the king of Babylon’s army, which shall take it. Therefore the princes said unto the king, We beseech thee, let this man be put to death: for thus he weakeneth the hands of the men of war that remain in this city, and the hands of all the people, in speaking such words unto them: for this man seeketh not the welfare of this people, but the hurt. Then Zedekiah the king said, Behold, he is in your hand: for the king is not he that can do any thing against you. Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of the prison: and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Jeremiah sunk in the mire.

8. Joseph thrown into the prison for refusing to commit immorality with the wife of his master.

Gen 39:7 — Gen 39:10 And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me. But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand; There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.

Gen 39:17 — Gen 39:20 And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me: And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out. And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled. And Joseph’s master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

Beloved, remember, if you are going to be ready for the dawning rapture and God shall help you to be ready in Jesus name. You must keep the entirety of the word of God, even if your blood will be splitted. See it.

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Revelation 2:25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

God’s grace is sufficient for you. So whatever God permitted for you to suffer for believing Christ, receive grace of God to do so in Jesus name.

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

2Co 12:9 — 2Co 12:10 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 13, 2020. Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional  Exodus 7:8-13 – And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent. And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the Lord had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their  enchantments.   For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. And he hardened Pharaoh’s heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said.

Beloved, praise the Lord, you are a very wise person.
You became wise by your deliberate resolve to reckon with the sayings of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Mat 7:24 — Mat 7:27  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Now see what our Lord said and take urgent decisive action because of your desire to be ready and partake in the dawning rapture. It shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name.

Mat 24:23 — Mat 24:26  Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

Matthew 24:11  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Mat 7:15 — Mat 7:20 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Mat 7:21 — Mat 7:23  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Remember, also that this same Jesus is the one that would determine where you shall spend eternity.

John 5:22  For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

Romans 2:16  In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

Beloved, the buck stops with you. Please place due premium on your  precious undying soul and take decisive decision to a avoid the false prophets and their deceptive miracles

2Co 11:13 — 2Co 11:15  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Eph 5:11 — Eph 5:12  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

Rom 16:17 — Rom 16:18  Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

2Jo 1:8 — 2Jo 1:11  Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Beloved, why must you avoid these false prophets and their lying wonders and deceptive miracles?
Don’t ever forget this till you meet with our Lord I the air.  The essence of their deceptive false miracles is for one purpose, to harden your heart against God and reject the wholesome truth, through which you can be biblically saved and be ready for the dawning rapture.
When Moses and Aaron did miracles as directed by the Lord, the magicians did the same thing and it hardened the heart of Pharaoh against God.
 This exactly what it will do to anyone and everyone at anytime and every time, where such false miracles are done through the power of satan. See it yourself.

Exo 7:8 — Exo 7:13 And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent. And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the Lord had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their  enchantments.   For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. And he hardened Pharaoh’s heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said

Exo 7:19 — Exo 7:22  And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone. And Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt. And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as the Lord had said.

 Beloved, see what the scriptures says about the false prophets and their lying wonders both in the old and new testaments. See them.

Jer 23:21 — Jer 23:22. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.

Jer 23:25 — Jer 23:32 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal. The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the Lord. Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that steal my words every one from his neighbour. Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that use their tongues, and say, He saith. Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the Lord, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the Lord.

2Pe 2:1 — 2Pe 2:3  But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not

It is also very very unfortunate, that both in the old and new testaments the multitude of people in Christendom wanted it so.

Jeremiah 5:31  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

2Th 2:10 — 2Th 2:12  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2Ti 4:1 — 2Ti 4:4  I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Beloved, please I bessech you in the name of the Lord, pause and sincerely examine yourself, do you fall into these categories?
Your response should be affirmative no. But if you are not sure then repent Immediately and do necessary restitutions.
 

Heb 3:6 — Heb 3:8 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

Beloved, never forget behind these lying wonders and miracles is the devil.

2Th 2:8 — 2Th 2:9 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

Rev 16:13 — Rev 16:15  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.  Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

His singular goal is to seduce and deceive you. You shall neither be seduced or deceived in Jesus name.

1Ti 4:1 — 1Ti 4:2  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

2Ti 3:13  But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

Beloved, heed the warnings from scriptures and save yourself from etenal regret and damnation. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

Isa 48:17 — Isa 48:18 Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:

Beloved, pause sincerely and think about this.  Since you professed to be a believer, Has God ever carried you along when He is set to do something that shall bring glory to Him?
If this has not been happening to you, you should be concerned.
This might not be happening because of so many reasons.
1. May be you have not been turning when something that borders Hin  is being shown to you as Moses did

Exo 3:2 — Exo 3:4  And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

2. May be you have not being thinking like Joshua, how Jericho wall hindering the progress of God’s work can come down.

Jos 5:13 — Jos 5:15  And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries? And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant? And the captain of the Lord’s host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

May be you really don’t attach much importance to end time events, like Simeon was looking forward earnestly for the birth of Christ.

Luk 2:25 — Luk 2:32 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,  Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:  For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
4. May be you are not asking God pungent questions on what you can do to move His kingdom forward like Paul did.

Act 9:3 — Act 9:6  And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.

5. May be you don’t desire spiritual experiences to grow in the things of God like Cornelius.

Act 10:1 — Act 10:6  There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway. He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God. And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter: He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.

6. May be you are not like John the beloved who devoted the Lord’s day to closer walk with God, while you use the Lord’s day for towns meeting and socialization.

Rev 1:9 — Rev 1:11  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

7, May be you are not like  Daniel and  Habakkuk who set  themselves apart desiring to hear God speak to them.

Dan 2:19 — Dan 2:23  Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven. Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:  He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.  I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.

Hab 2:1 — Hab 2:3.  I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.  For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

 
8. May be you have so many king Uzziah”s engaging you in worldly affairs, hindering you of thinking about spiritual and eternal things.
 

Isa 6:1 — Isa 6:8  In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

Beloved, it is time you wake up from slumbering. God has secrets and He shared them with only believers who position themselves to hear them.
See what to do as a believer to access the secrets of God.
1. You must be living a lifestyle of biblical holiness and righteousness.

Proverbs 3:32  For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous.

2. You must be lowly and meek in heart like our Lord.

Psalms 25:9  The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.

3. You must fear the Lord and eschew evil like Job, Joseph , Noah.

Psalms 25:12  What man is he that feareth the Lord?him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.

Psalms 25:14  The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

Hebrews 11:7  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

4. You must prophesy and propagate the gospel to the lost in your world of influence.

Amo 3:7  Surely the Lord God will do nothing,but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

Matthew 24:14  And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

5. You must determinedly set your affections on eternal things and take all your decisions from the perspective of readiness for the dawning rapture.

Col 3:1 — Col 3:4  If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

1Co 15:51 — 1Co 15:52  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1Th 4:15 — 1Th 4:17  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Beloved, if you are really not hearing from God, it makes your profession as a believer doubtful and exposes you to the danger of not knowing when the imminent rapture shall take place.
May this never ever be your portion in Jesus name.

Psa 10:4  The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God:God is not in all his thoughts.

Romans 1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Please should this be your situation, it is time to break your fallow ground and return to God.
The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

Hosea 10:12  Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

Jeremiah 35:15  I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.

Beloved, whatever you see or read in the Bible,  must draw your attention and you must make effort to meditate on it and discover why it is so.
Think about  why the blessed Holy Spirit the author of the Bible, chooses to begin the book of Exodus, capturing the names of the children of Israel that came to Egypt. See it.

Exo 1:1 — Exo 1:5  Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob. Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin, Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher. And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.

This is to impress it in your heart, that the minutest of whatever,  you are doing today either in the secret or in the  open are captured in details and shall be referred to in the future that might not be distant.

Ecc 12:13 — Ecc 12:14  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

  Never fall into the delusion of multitude of people inside or outside the church in our days,, who felt, because nothing happened when they did something, so  they at liberty to  be doing whatever they like.

Ecc 8:11 — Ecc 8:13  Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.

  Beloved, you must back your earnest desire to be part of the dawning rapture or living eternally with God in heaven with requisite action.
  Your name, not the name of your family. Your own very name, must be written in the book of life and remain there until Jesus comes.

Revelation 21:27  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

 Pause here and meditate deeply and check up with the blessed Holy Spirit.  You claim to be born again. Praise God. But then, if you are really born again, something must happen. Your own very name must be written in the book of life.  Is your name there?  Check up. Don’t assume. Don’t be presumptuous. Be very  sure. Is your name in the book of life?

Philippians 4:3  And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.

Praise the Lord for whatever you are doing in your church or perhaps in the kingdom. But realise, whatever you are doing is not celebrate- able, unless your name is written in the book of life.

Luke 10:20  Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

  Beloved, this is very very important. Don’t miss it.
It is great that you are very very important in your church and your name carries so much weight in your church. But then, is it written also in the glorious church in heaven with Christ our Lord?

Heb 12:22 — Heb 12:24  But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

 Beloved, glory and honor to God of heaven that your own name is even written in heaven. You must be very very careful to ensure that, your name is not blotted out of the book of life.
Multitude in the Bible days and even in our contemporary days have their names removed from the book of life on account of sin , compromise and disobedience.

Exodus 32:33  And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

Please always remember this. Your name can be blotted out of the book of life, if in the time past you are believing the totality of God’s unfailing words in the Bible.
 But now, because of one reason or the other, you lost your convictions and you don’t believe the entirety of God’s words again.  See what the scriptures says.

Rev 22:18 — Rev 22:19  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

1Ti 4:1 — 1Ti 4:2  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Gal 1:6 — Gal 1:9 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

2Co 11:2 — 2Co 11:4  For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

 Beloved, because God shall help you in particular to be part of the dawning rapture or glory with God, you must overcome sin, satan, self, the flesh and the world and worldliness to keep your name in the book of life.

Revelation 3:5  He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Daniel 12:1  And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

This becomes necessary and extremely important, because, anyone and everyone whose name is not found in the book of life shall end up in the lake of fire and be part of the great tribulation.  This shall not be your portion, so avoid it with all the strength and grace, God has given you.

Revelation 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Rev 13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Rev 13:16 — Rev 13:18  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
The good Lord shall help you in particular.
 Is your name in the book of life? If you are sure fine. But if you are not sure, do something drastic about it now. Tomorrow might be too late.

2 Corinthians 6:2. (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

May the Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

Beloved, it very important that you give attention to everything that makes reference to the beginning.
See some of them.

Ecc 7:8  Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.

Isa 46:10  Declaring the end from the beginning,and from ancient times the things that are not yet done,saying, My counsel shall stand,and I will do all my pleasure

Isa 64:4  For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear,neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee,what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

Mat 24:4 — Mat 24:8  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Act 15:18  Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

Psa 111:10  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom:a good understanding have all they that do his commandments:his praise endureth for ever.

Psa 119:160  Thy word is true from the beginning:and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

Pro 1:7  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge:but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Mat 19:3 — Mat 19:8  The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

1Pe 4:17 — 1Pe 4:18  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

Heb 3:14  For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

1Jo 3:8  He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the works of the devil.

I celebrate our Father in heaven who in His providence has made you a very wise person.

Pro 9:12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself:but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

But then if you are going to affirm this biblical wiseness by yourself, it will reflects in your daily preparations to meet with God, which might be sooner than you think.

Amo 4:12 Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel:and because I will do this unto thee,prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.

You will determinedly and conscientiously be working on the eternity you desire.

Deuteronomy 32:29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Proverbs 19:20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

Beloved, there are two eternal ends. You and not God will determine your choice.

Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

I am persuaded of you that you choice is eternal bliss. Because this is so, you have to work on it determinedly and conscientiously.

It has never been and it will never be something attained automatically, but it is always conscientiously work towards.

What then must you be doing, if you want to culminating your sojourn on earth in eternal bliss?

In the days of old, there was a common parlance that all roads led to Rome. But then not all roads leads to heaven.

If you are interested in heaven, there is only one road.

Mat 7:13 — Mat 7:14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Isa 35:8 — Isa 35:9 And an highway shall be there, and a way,
and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

After entering that road, everything you do thereafter, must be done from the perspective of eternity.

Col 3:1 — Col 3:4 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Beloved, as a sincere wise person. Pause here and without any iota of presumption. Examine yourself, have you entered this singular road that leads to glory? If you are, are you still walking on this road?

Scriptures abound of innumerable numbers of people, who walked there and ultimately lost out. You shall not in Jesus name.

Mat 7:21 — Mat 7:23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Beloved, you might be surrounded by scoffers who shamefully trivialize the reality of the dawning rapture.

2Pe 3:3 — 2Pe 3:4 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

The imminence of the rapture with teach them painful lessons when it eventually happens.

1Co 15:51 — 1Co 15:52 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Perhaps it might be you are one of such people. I am persuaded are not and you shall not be In Jesus name.

But then, let’s ever set aside the issue of the rapture, temporarily. Day after day something happens globally and always reported in the news. It is called death.

You have never seen anyone globally who are thinking about it, until it gets to them. See what the Bible says.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Psa 49:10 — Psa 49:12 For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others. Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever,
and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names. Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not:
he is like the beasts that perish.

Let’s leave every other person out of this. Let’s talk about you. Do you know that death is closer to you more than the distance between your bedroom and your toilet?

1Sa 20:3 And David sware moreover, and said, Thy father certainly knoweth that I have found grace in thine eyes; and he saith, Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved: but truly as the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, there is but a step between me and death.

I wish you in particular long life and prosperity. It shall be so in Jesus name.

But then, suppose you, I am taking about you. Suppose you die now. Where will you spend eternity?

You know I have not come out of the pains , my brethren at Gombe, suffered this last January at the hands of Boko Haram. They were killed in the midst of service.

Our Father in heaven is sovereign and unquestionable. Wisdom demands that you should learn lessons from the misfortunes of others.

Suppose, you are one of the victims or suppose same thing happen to you. Where will you spend eternity?

Deuteronomy 32:29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Proverbs 19:20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

It is for this reason that the blessed Holy Spirit, is sharing with you in particular, biblical preparations for the beginning of the end.

The journey to the land of the dead has a begining, but has no end. It is forever and ever. If this is the issue, then why are you leaving your life as if, it doesn’t matter?

Let us look at the lives of these two people.

Luk 16:19 — Luk 16:25 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented

Beloved, those two people have been in the place of death before our Lord came to undertake His earthly ministry.

One is in comfort, the other in torment. I pray yours too shall be comfort. But then it takes more than amen to make it happen. You need to work on it.

See example of those who work on it and attain it and follow their examples.

Heb 11:13 — Heb 11:16 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

Beloved, rapture is dawning, death is looming.. You as a matter of compulsion must be preparing for either of both. Rapture or glory. May the Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

2Pe 3:10 — 2Pe 3:14 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

Rev 22:11 — Rev 22:15 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.
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 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. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Beloved, glory and honor to the great God in heaven. Our Father and the very Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jn 20:17  Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

He alone giveth power and enabling grace to us to do all things and complete them.

Phi 2:13  For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

In the same way , He saw us through to finish the study of the entire book of Revelation, the other time. So He has also helped us to finish the deep study of the seven churches.
Like Daniel of old, we give Him alone all the glory for this great feat.  This is our heartfelt doxology for this gracious and eternal defining revelations.

Dan 2:19 — Dan 2:23  Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven. Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:  And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:  He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers,who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.

Beloved, the study of the seventh church, deserve your utmost attention.
This is because, it is  the last and worst of all the seven Asian churches.
It is, the reverse of the church of Philadelphia for, as there was nothing reproved in that, here was nothing commended in this.
Yet,  because of the providence of our gracious Redeemer and Lord,
It  was  still counted among  the seven golden candlesticks, for a corrupt church may still be a church. See it.

Rev 3:14 — Rev 3:16   And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

There is a great lesson to be learnt from this church. It affirms in deed the long-suffering of our gracious and loving Father in heaven, who has no pleasure in the death of the wicked.
How does this affects you? It doesn’t matter how far anyone has gone astray like the prodigal son or the malefactor crucified with our Lord. There is still room for time bound repentance.

2 Peter 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Romans 2:4  Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

Beloved, recount these messages were sent to seven selected Asian churches then, to reveal to them, there spiritual standing and for them to make appropriate timely  corrections that could guarantee their eternal well-being.

Revelation 1:11  Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

However, in addition  our loving and gracious Lord, also had it in mind to extend same to His universal churches and you in particular, to help you prepare adequately for the imminent rapture or glory.
This informs why seven churches were selected. Meaning, totality, finality,, completeness  and perfection.

Rev 1:19 — Rev 1:20  Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

 This was the reason every message ended with he or she that hath an ear , should heat what the blessed Holy Spirit was saying to the churches, especially you.

Revelation 3:6  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 3:13  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 3:22  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Beloved, you must distinguished your self as a wise virgin. Take utmost advantage of these messages to prepare you for the dawning rapture or sudden glory.
You are familiar with global news. Daily it is reported of numerous mysterious deaths.
From my heart of hearts, I wish you in particular long life. But then, pause, supposing these jihadist or something else happen and you die.  Where will you spend eternity?
See these messages are time bound. Take advantage of them, like the wise virgin.  You must not and you shall not be part of the great tribulation or eternity in hell in Jesus name.

Revelation 1:1  The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

Revelation 1:3  Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

Rev 22:9 — Rev 22:11 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 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.

Beloved, remember you are the church bought with the precious blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and savior, that these messages are sent to .
Beside this, you are the  angel through which our Lord Jesus Christ will reach the unsaved among the people in  your world o influence. May the Lord depend on you in particular in Jesus name.

Acts 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Revelation 22:16  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

Beloved, keep in mind the reason and the goal for you to undertake the study of these seven churches.
It is to help you secure your most deserved seat among the twenty four elders around the throne of God.
These elders in the book of Revelation symbolizes the raptured church.
Those who were redeemed with the blood of Jesus on this side of heaven . See it yourself.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:4  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

Rev 19:6 — Rev 19:9 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Beloved,   let us study I details this last church.

Rev 3:14 — Rev 3:22  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
As usual the message was sent to the angel of the church.

Rev 3:14 — Rev 3:16   And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

What do you know about angels. You need to know, to help you fit in as the leader of your world of influence.  See what the Bible says about the angels of God.

Rev 14:6 — Rev 14:7  And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

The angels of God are faithful in discharging commissioned errands.  The angel above was preaching the gospel to the entire inhabitants of the earth, during the great tribulation.
Like the angel, you also have been commissioned by Christ to preach the gospel to be lost world.

Mark 16:15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Along side this commission, Jesus commanded that you should preach the total gospel.

Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

How faithful are you to this heavenly mandate? Are teaching to a congregation with itching ears who only wants to hear  only those things that are suitable to them.

2Ti 4:1 — 2Ti 4:4   I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Are you preaching the total Bible or you are adding your own and removing the substance?  See what the Bible says.

Deuteronomy 4:2  Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

Rev 22:18 — Rev 22:19  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

You are aware of the implication of not teaching the entirety of the word of God.

Revelation 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Jn 12:46 — Jn 12:48  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

See Paul taught the entirety of the word of God.

Acts 20:27  For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

He commanded Timothy to do same. May the Lord depend on you to be a faithful angel in Jesus name.

1 Timothy 4:16  Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

Now let us come back to this last and the worst church.
How was this church established?
The church perhaps must have been founded by  Epaphras.  Why did we say so? See the writing of Paul.

Col 4:12 — Col 4:13  Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God. For I bear him record, that he hath a great zeal for you, and them that are in Laodicea, and them in Hierapolis.

Now after establishing it, He informed Paul about the Judaizers who wanted to corrupt the church, with false doctrines..

Colossians 2:4  And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.

Colossians 2:8  Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Colossians 1:8  Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.

This was how apostle Paul got to know about the church and started praying for them and sending them epistle.

Colossians 2:1  For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;

Colossians 4:16  And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.

The bishop of the church was also discovered through the writing of apostle Paul. See it.

Philemon 1:2  And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:

Col 4:16 — Col 4:17  And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea. And say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it.

The name of the bishop the son of the wealth Apphia.
Unfortunately, the bishop did not live to expectations, which resulted in the decadence of the church.
 By the time Christ sent this message, tge spiritual estate had gone bad.
This church was  the last and worst of all the seven Asian churches,.
 
The  reverse of the church of Philadelphia for, as there was nothing reproved in that, here was nothing commended in this,. See it again.
 

Rev 3:14 — Rev 3:16   And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

 See how  our Lord Jesus styles himself the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God .
 

Revelation 3:14  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

 The Amen, one that is steady and unchangeable in all his purposes and promises, which are all yea, and all amen .
 The faithful and true witness, whose testimony of God to men ought to be received and fully believed, and whose testimony of men to God will be fully believed and regarded, and will be a swift but true witness against all indifferent lukewarm professors.
 The beginning of the creation of God, either of the first creation, and so he is the beginning, that is, the first cause, the Creator, and the Governor of it.

Jn 1:1 — Jn 1:3  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Col 1:16 — Col 1:17  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Hebrews 1:2  Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

 He   is  the head of that body, the first-born from the dead.
Christ, having raised up himself by his own divine power, as the head of a new world, raises up dead souls to be a living temple and church to himself

Revelation 1:5  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

The subject-matter, in which observe,
 The heavy charge drawn up against this church, ministers and people, by one who knew them better than they knew themselves: 
 
Thou art neither cold nor hot, but worse than either I would thou wert cold or hot
 

Rev 3:15 — Rev 3:16.   I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

 Lukewarmness or indifference in religion is the worst temper in the world.
 If religion is a real thing, it is the most excellent thing, and therefore we should be in good earnest in it if it is not a real thing, it is the vilest imposture, and we should be earnest against it. 
If religion is worth any thing, it is worth every thing an indifference here is inexcusable: Why halt you between two opinions? If God be God, follow him if Baal (be God), follow him.
 Here is no room for neutrality. An open enemy shall have a fairer quarter than a perfidious neuter and there is more hope of a heathen than of such. 
Christ expects that men should declare themselves in earnest either for him or against him.
 
This church has a name that they are life but dead.  They have lost their first love.  They are dearly lukewarm.
 

Revelation 3:1  And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

Revelation 2:4  Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

Beloved, how about you?  Are you living a false life ?  A life of hypocrisy?   Are you a James in the church and Judas  outside.  Are you a Janet inside the church and Jezebel outside?   Where do you belong?  Examine yourself.

Job 13:16   He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.

Isaiah 33:14  The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

Hosea 10:2  Their heart is divided; now shall they be found faulty: he shall break down their altars, he shall spoil their images.

Hosea 4:17  Ephraim is joined to idols:  let him alone.

Hosea 7:9  Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there u

Please amend your ways before it is too late. Don’t fall a victim of what happened to Gehazi  or  Judas. It shall never be your portion in Jesus name.  See what Jesus was up to do.

Rev 3:15 — Rev 3:16.   I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

 A severe punishment threatened: I will spue thee out of my mouth. As lukewarm water turns the stomach, and provokes to a vomit, lukewarm professors turn the heart of Christ against them.
 
 He is sick of them, and cannot long bear them. They may call their lukewarmness charity, meekness, moderation, and a largeness of soul it is nauseous to Christ, and makes those so that allow themselves in it. 
They shall be rejected, and finally rejected for far be it from the holy Jesus to return to that which has been thus rejected 
We have one cause of this indifference and inconsistency in religion assigned, and that is self-conceitedness or self-delusion.

Proverbs 14:14  The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.

They thought they were very well already, and therefore they were very indifferent whether they grew better or no
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods

Revelation 3:17   Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

 Here observe, What a difference there was between the thoughts they had of themselves and the thoughts that Christ had of them
The high thoughts they had of themselves: Thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing, rich, and growing richer, and increased to such a degree as to be above all want or possibility of wanting.

Psalms 36:2  For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.

Perhaps they were well provided for as to their bodies, and this made them overlook the necessities of their souls.
 Or they thought themselves well furnished in their souls: they had learning, and they took it for religion they had gifts, and they took them for grace they had wit, and they took it for true wisdom they had ordinances, and they took up with them instead of the God of ordinances.
How careful should we be not to put the cheat upon our own souls! Doubtless there are many in hell that once thought themselves to be in the way to heaven.
Let us daily beg of God that we may not be left to flatter and deceive ourselves in the concerns of our souls.
 The mean thoughts that Christ had of them and he was not mistaken. He knew, though they knew not, that they were wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.
Wretched
Their state was wretched in itself, and such as called for pity and compassion from others: though they were proud of themselves, they were pitied by all who knew their case.

Rom 7:19 — Rom 7:20  For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Romans 7:24  O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Miserable,

1 Corinthians 15:19  If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

Poor
For, They were poor, really poor, when they said and thought they were rich they had no provision for their souls to live upon their souls were starving in the midst of their abundance they were vastly in debt to the justice of God, and had nothing to pay off the least part of the debt

John 15:2  Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

John 15:6  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

Romans 1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Blind
They were blind they could not see their state, nor their way, nor their danger they could not see into themselves they could not look before them they were blind, and yet they thought they saw the very light that was in them was darkness, and then how great must that darkness be!
They could not see Christ, though evidently set forth, and crucified, before their eyes. They could not see God by faith, though always present in them. They could not see death, though it was just before them. They could not look into eternity, though they stood upon the very brink of it continually .

Matthew 15:14  Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

2Pe 1:5 — 2Pe 1:9  And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

1 John 2:11  But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

Naked
They were naked, without clothing and without house and harbour for their souls. They were without clothing, had neither the garment of justification nor that of sanctification.
 Their nakedness both of guilt and pollution had no covering. They lay always exposed to sin and shame. Their righteousnesses were but filthy rags they were rags, and would not cover them, filthy rags, and would defile them.
And they were naked, without house or harbour, for they were without God, and he has been the dwelling-place of his people in all ages in him alone the soul of man can find rest, and safety, and all suitable accommodations.
The riches of the body will not enrich the soul the sight of the body will not enlighten the soul the most convenient house for the body will not afford rest nor safety to the soul.
The soul is a different thing from the body, and must have accommodation suitable to its nature, or else in the midst of bodily prosperity it will be wretched and miserable

Isaiah 61:10  I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

Counsel from Christ.
 
We have good counsel given by Christ to this sinful people, and that is that they drop their vain and false opinion they had of themselves, and endeavour to be that really which they would seem to be: I counsel thee to buy of me,

Revelation 3:18  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Jesus Christ continues to give good counsel to those who have cast his counsels behind their backs
The condition of sinners in never desperate, while they enjoy the gracious calls and counsels of Christ
Our blessed Lord, the counsellor, always gives the best advice, and that which is most suitable to the sinner’s case as here,

Gold

These people were poor Christ counsels them to buy of him gold tried in the fire, that they might be rich.
He lets them know where they might have true riches and how they might have them. First, Where they might have them–from himself he sends them not to the streams of Pactolus, nor to the mines of Potosi, but invites them to himself, the pearl of price.

1 Peter 1:7  That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

Secondly, And how must they have this true gold from him? They must buy it.
This seems to be unsaying all again. How can those that are poor buy gold? Just as they may buy of Christ wine and milk, that is, without money and without price,
Something indeed must be parted with, but it is nothing of a valuable consideration, it is only to make room for receiving true riches “Part with sin and self-sufficiency, and come to Christ with a sense of your poverty and emptiness, that you may be filled with his hidden treasure

Isaiah 55:1  Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money

Eph 3:8 — Eph 3:9  Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: and without price.

White  Rainet.
These people were naked Christ tells them where they might have clothing, and such as would cover the shame of their nakedness.
This they must receive from Christ and they must only put off their filthy rags that they might put on the white raiment which he had purchased and provided for them–his own imputed righteousness for justification and the garments of holiness and sanctification

Psalms 132:9  Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.

Psalms 132:16  I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

Rev 19:7 — Rev 19:8  Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Eye save
They were blind and he counsels them to buy of him eye-salve, that they might see, to give up their own wisdom and reason, which are but blindness in the things of God, and resign themselves to his word and Spirit, and their eyes shall be opened to see their way and their end, their duty and their true interest a new and glorious scene would then open itself to their souls a new world furnished with the most beautiful and excellent objects, and this light would be marvellous to those who were but just now delivered from the powers of darkness.
This is the wise and good counsel Christ gives to careless souls and, if they follow it, he will judge himself bound in honour to make it effectual

Proverbs 23:23  Buy the truth, and sell it not;  also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

Proverbs 23:26  My son, give me thine heart,  and let thine eyes observe my ways

Ephesians 1:18  The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

Here is added great and gracious encouragement to this sinful people to take the admonition and advice well that Christ had given them,

Rev 3:19 — Rev 3:20  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

He tells them,
It was given them in true and tender affection: “Whom I love, I rebuke and chasten.
You may think I have given you hard words and severe reproofs it is all out of love to your souls. I would not have thus openly rebuked and corrected your sinful lukewarmness and vain confidence,
if I had not been a lover of your souls had I hated you, I would have let you alone, to go on in sin till it had been your ruin”
Sinners ought to take the rebukes of God’s word and rod as tokens of his good-will to their souls, and should accordingly repent in good earnest, and turn to him that smites them better are the frowns and wounds of a friend than the flattering smiles of an enemy

Pro 3:11 — Pro 3:12  My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord;  neither be weary of his correction: For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Heb 12:5 — Heb 12:11  And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

If they would comply with his admonitions, he was ready to make them good to their souls: Behold, I stand at the door and knock,
Here observe, Christ is graciously pleased by his word and Spirit to come to the door of the heart of sinners he draws near to them in a way of mercy, ready to make them a kind visit
 He finds this door shut against him the heart of man is by nature shut up against Christ by ignorance, unbelief, sinful prejudices
 When he finds the heart shut, he does not immediately withdraw, but he waits to be gracious, even till his head be filled with the dew
He uses all proper means to awaken sinners, and to cause them to open to him: he calls by his word, he knocks by the impulses of his Spirit upon their conscience
 Those who open to him shall enjoy his presence, to their great comfort and advantage.
He will sup with them he will accept of what is good in them he will eat his pleasant fruit and he will bring the best part of the entertainment with him. If what he finds would make but a poor feast, what he brings will make up the deficiency: he will give fresh supplies of graces and comforts, and thereby stir up fresh actings of faith, and love, and delight and in all this Christ and his repenting people will enjoy pleasant communion with each other.
Alas! what do careless obstinate sinners lose by refusing to open the door of the heart to Christ!

Acts 3:19  Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

2 Chronicles 7:14  If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

2Co 7:10  For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

 We now come to the conclusion of this epistle and here we have as before,
The promise made to the overcoming believer. It is here implied,

Rev 3:21 — Rev 3:22   To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
 That though this church seemed to be wholly overrun and overcome with lukewarmness and self-confidence, yet it was possible that by the reproofs and counsels of Christ they might be inspired with fresh zeal and vigour, and might come off conquerors in their spiritual warfare
 That, if they did so, all former faults should be forgiven, and they should have a great reward. And what is that reward?
 They shall sit down with me on my throne, as I also overcame, and have sat down with my Father on his throne,
That Christ himself had met with his temptations and conflicts
 That he overcame them all, and was more than a conqueror
That, as the reward of his conflict and victory, he has sat down with God the Father on his throne, possessed of that glory which he had with the Father from eternity, but which he was pleased very much to conceal on earth, leaving it as it were in the hands of the Father, as a pledge that he would fulfil the work of a Saviour before he reassumed that manifestative glory and, having done so, he demands the pledge, to appear in his divine glory equal to the Fathe
That those who are conformed to Christ in his trials and victories shall be conformed to him in his glory they shall sit down with him on his throne, on his throne of judgment at the end of the world, on his throne of glory to all eternity, shining in his beams by virtue of their union with him and relation to him, as the mystical body of which he is the head
All is closed up with the general demand of attention  putting all to whom these epistles shall come in mind that what is contained in them is not of private interpretation, not intended for the instruction, reproof, and correction of those particular churches only, but of all the churches of Christ in all ages and parts of the world: and as there will be a resemblance in all succeeding churches to these, both in their graces and sins, so they may expect that God will deal with them as he dealt with these, which are patterns to all ages
What faithful, and fruitful churches may expect to receive from God, and what those who are unfaithful may expect to suffer from his hand yea, that God’s dealings with his churches may afford useful instruction to the rest of the world, to put them upon considering,

If judgment begin at the house of God, what shall the end of those be that do not obey the gospel of Christ? 1 Peter 4:17.

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Beloved, we have now come to the sixth letter, sent to one of the seven selected Asian churches. . See it.

Revelation 1:11  Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

Even though the message was sent to them specially. It was also meant for you in particular, redeemed  with the precious blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and savior.

Acts 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Revelation 22:16  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

Also because seven churches were selected for a purpose. As you are aware, seven means totality,  finality, completeness, and  perfection.

Revelation 1:20  The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches

The message was for the entire universal church of Christ, till the end of time, that shall culminate I’m the dawning rapture.  It shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name.
It was for this, that made all the messages to end with, he or she that hath an ear. Praise God your own eat and heart had been opened by the Lord. Glory to His holy name.

Revelation 3:6  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 3:13  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 3:22  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches

Beloved, no doubt you know the urgency to be attached to these messages. This is because of its imminence. It could happen before the close of today. It shall meet you prepared in Jesus name.

Revelation 1:1.  The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

Revelation 1:3  Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

Rev 22:10 — Rev 22:11 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 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.

  Beloved, once again you are aware of the worthwhile goal before you in particular.
You are set to be enlisted among the twenty four elders, who are the representatives of the raptured saints. God willing, you shall be one of them in Jesus name.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:4  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

Rev 5:6 — Rev 5:10  And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

By the special grace of God, we shall be there together in Jesus name.
Beloved,  remember what we discovered about this sixth church. See it again.

Rev 3:7 — Rev 3:8  And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

This was  another church worthy of emulation, like Symna.
Our Lord had nothing to correct but exhorted them to persevere to the end.
You must aspire with all your strength henceforth to be like this church. They were faultless and blameless..
It was possible for them by the grace of God. It shall be possible for you too in Jesus name.

Rev 14:4 — Rev 14:5  These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

You are aware this glorious church not graceless, is what Jesus our Lord is coming for.

Eph 5:25 — Eph 5:27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

 Let us know study the details of this church properly. So that you can learn lessons from their fidelity.

Rev 3:7 — Rev 3:13  And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Beloved, this was another church like the one at Symna that our Lord had nothing to correct , but to commend and exhort. Hence , His comforting introduction.
Firstly, message was sent to the angel of the church. You are aware, you are doubling as both the church and angel of your world of influence.

Revelation 3:1  And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

What do you know about angels?
They are holy. See it.

Mat 25:31  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

Mark 8:38  Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

The angels of God are holy and blameless.
This must be your goal as a member of Christ Church and leader in your world of influence.
You must be unashamedly holy. Biblical holiness that is faultless. See what the Bible says.

1 Thessalonians 2:10  Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:

1Th 4:3 — 1Th 4:4  For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

1 Thessalonians 4:7  For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

1 Thessalonians 5:23  And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 12:14  Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

1Pe 1:14 — 1Pe 1:16  As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Luk 1:74 — Luk 1:75  That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies  might serve him without fear,  In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.

Revelation 21:27  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Eph 5:25 — Eph 5:27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

2Pe 3:11 — 2Pe 3:14  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

By whom this letter was signed even by the same Jesus who is alone the universal head of all the churches and here observe by what title he chooses to represent himself to this church:.
 
 He that is holy, he that is true.
He that hath the key of David.
He that openeth, and none shall shut, and shutteth, and none openeth

Revelation 3:7  And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

Revelation 6:10  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

You have his personal character: He that is holy and he that is true, holy in his nature, and therefore he cannot but be true to his word, for he hath spoken in his holiness .
 
Also  his political character: He hath the key of David, he openeth, and no man shutteth he hath the key of the house of David, the key of government and authority in and over the church.
 
He opens. He opens a door of opportunity to his churches he opens a door of utterance to his ministers he opens a door of entrance, opens the heart .
 
He  opens a door of admission into the visible church, laying down the terms of communion and he opens the door of admission into the church triumphant, according to the terms of salvation fixed by him.
In addition. He shuts the door. 
 
When he pleases, he shuts the door of opportunity and the door of utterance, and leaves obstinate sinners shut up in the hardness of their hearts.
He  shuts the door of church-fellowship against unbelievers and profane persons and he shuts the door of heaven against the foolish virgins who have slept away their day of grace, and against the workers of iniquity, how vain and confident soever they may be.

Revelation 1:18  I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Isa 22:20 — Isa 22:22  And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:  And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.  And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

 
Both the key of knowledge and that of the kingdom, Christ has given to the church..

Matthew 16:18  And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Luk 11:52  Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

The Church may open where Christ will shut, and shut where Christ will open. He alone openeth so that none shall strut, and shutteth so that none can open.
 

Revelation 3:8  I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

I know thy works. Once more Christ’s judgment is based upon intimate personal knowledge.
 
Jesus knew their works. He knows yours too.
 

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.

Jer 23:23 — Jer 23:24  Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.

Remember, sooner than you think, all your works shall be made plain. 
What do you think God will discover?
 

Ecc 12:13 — Ecc 12:14  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Let’s come back to the church.
 
Christ puts them in mind of what he had done for them: I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it,
 
Because thou hast little power, and hast made a good use of that little, I have given thee an opportunity of which none shall deprive thee.
 
I have set it open, and kept it open, though there be many adversaries.
 
This refers to doors of opportunities to preach the gospel.
 
And also  utrances for His ministers.
 

Acts 14:27 And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.

1 Corinthians 16:9  For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.

2 Corinthians 2:12  Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,

Colossians 4:3  Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:

 Christ is to be acknowledged as the author of all the liberty and opportunity his churches enjoy
He takes notice and keeps account, how long he has preserved their spiritual liberties and privileges for them.
Wicked men envy the people of God their door of liberty, and would be glad to shut it against them .
If we do not provoke Christ to shut this door against us, men cannot do it.

Revelation 3:8  I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

If you too shall be obedient to Christ,to conscientiously reach out to the lost in your world of influence, He shall place an open door before you.

1 Corinthians 16:9  For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.

In addition,, the Philadelphian Church, in spite of its small advantages, whether in numbers or prosperity, kept Christ’s word when called upon to deny him; and for this it shall ever have the privilege of giving others an entrance into Christ’s fold.
This church is commended: Thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name,
Thou hast a little strength, a little grace, which, though it be not proportionate to the wide door of opportunity which I have opened to thee, yet is true grace, and has kept thee faithful”
True grace, though weak, has the divine approbation but, though Christ accepts a little strength, yet believers should not rest satisfied in a little, but should strive to grow in grace, to be strong in faith, giving glory to God.
True grace, though weak, will do more than the greatest gifts or highest degrees of common grace, for it will enable the Christian to keep the word of Christ, and not to deny his name.
 Obedience, fidelity, and a free confession of the name of Christ, are the fruits of true grace, and are pleasing to Christ as such.

Revelation 2:13  I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

The grace of God enabled this church to be obedient to God:s entire unfailing words. The same grace is available for you too.
Remember, Jesus said you must live by the entirety of His words.

Jn 12:46 — Jn 12:48  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Rev 22:18 — Rev 22:19  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

2 Corinthians 9:8  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

Secondly.

Revelation 3:9  Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Revelation 2:9  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 synagogue of Satan.

The Church of Smyrna was encouraged with a promise that their Jewish opponents should not be victorious over them. The Philadelphian Christians are told that they shall be victorious over their Jewish opponents
 
Those  who “say they are Jews, and they are not,” are Jews who refuse to believe in the Messiah and reject the Gospel. The only true Jews are those who accept the Christ. They are not, but do lie.
 

Isaiah 60:14  The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of the Lord,  The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

Isaiah 49:23  And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the Lord: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.

Christ would make this church’s enemies subject to her 
 
Those enemies are described to be such as said they were Jews, but lied in saying so–pretended to be the only and peculiar people of God, but were really the synagogue of Satan. 
 
Assemblies that worship God in spirit and in truth are the Israel of God .
 
Assemblies that either worship false gods, or the true God in a false manner, are the synagogues of Satan: though they may profess to be the only people of God, their profession is a lie 
 
Their subjection to the church is described: They shall worship at thy feet not pay a religious and divine honour to the church itself, nor to the ministry of it, but shall be convinced that they have been in the wrong, that this church is in the right and is beloved of Christ, 
They  shall desire to be taken into communion with her and that they may worship the same God after the same manner. 
 
How shall this great change be wrought? 
 
By the power of God upon the hearts of his enemies, and by signal discoveries of his peculiar favour to his church: 
 
They shall know that I have loved thee. Observe, First, The greatest honour and happiness any church can enjoy consist in the peculiar love and favour of Christ. 
 
Secondly, Christ can discover this his favour to his people in such a manner that their very enemies shall see it, and be forced to acknowledge it. 
 
Thirdly, This will, by the grace of Christ, soften the hearts of their enemies, and make them desirous to be admitted into communion with them.
 

Revelation 3:9  Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee

Revelation 2:11  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

Beloved, are there people mocking you today because of your rigid unbending adherence to God’s word?
Is a matter of time. God shall vindicate you in Jesus name.
Look at this testimony. It shall happen in your life in Jesus name.

Dan 3:28 — Dan 3:29  Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.

Thirdly.
 

Revelation 3:10  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Because thou didst keep the word of my patience, I also will keep thee.
 
Another instance of favor that Christ promises to this church is persevering grace in the most trying times 
 
And this as the reward of their past fidelity. To him that hath shall be given. Here observe, 
 
 The gospel of Christ is the word of his patience.
 
 It is the fruit of the patience of God to a sinful world it sets before men the exemplary patience of Christ in all his sufferings for men it calls those that receive it to the exercise of patience in conformity to Christ 
 
This gospel should be carefully kept by all that enjoy it they must keep up to the faith, and practice, and worship prescribed in the gospel
 
 After a day of patience we must expect an hour of temptation a day of gospel peace and liberty is a day of God’s patience, and it is seldom so well improved as it should be and therefore it is often followed by an hour of trial and temptation
 
 Sometimes the trial is more general and universal it comes upon all the world, and, when it is so general, it is usually the shorter

Luke 8:15  But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

Luke 21:19   In your patience possess ye your souls.

Matthew 10:22  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Matthew 24:13  But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Revelation 3:10  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Revelation 1:3  Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

Revelation 2:26  And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

Beloved be very patient. God shall fulfill His promises in your life in Jesus name.

Hebrews 6:12  That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 6:15  And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

Heb 10:35 — Heb 10:39  Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

keep, and ye shall be kept. “I know mine own, and mine own know me”
 
Those who keep the gospel in a time of peace shall be kept by Christ in an hour of temptation. By keeping the gospel they are prepared for the trial and the same divine grace that has made them fruitful in times of peace will make them faithful in times of persecution.
 

Revelation 3:10  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

John 10:14  I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

John 17:15  I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

2 Thessalonians 3:3  But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

Forthly,

Revelation 3:11  Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Christ calls the church to that duty which he before promised he would enable her to do, and that is, to persevere, to hold fast that which she had
The duty itself: “Hold fast that which thou hast, that faith, that truth, that strength of grace, that zeal, that love to the brethren thou hast been possessed of this excellent treasure, hold it fast”
The motives, taken from the speedy appearance of Christ: “Behold, I come quickly. See, I am just a coming to relieve them under the trial, to reward their fidelity, and to punish those who fall away they shall lose that crown which they once seemed to have a right to, which they hoped for, and pleased themselves with the thoughts of.
The persevering Christian shall win the prize from backsliding professors, who once stood fair for it.”
Beloved, endeavor to hold on to the entirety of the scriptures that you have received, till Christ comes.

John 8:31  Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

Revelation 3:11  Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Revelation 22:7  Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

Revelation 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.

which is a promise. Here the declaration is one of encouragement to the Church—

Revelation 2:25  But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

Fifthly,
 

Revelation 3:12  Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

After his usual manner, our Saviour promises a glorious reward to the victorious believer, in two things
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar.
 
He shall be a monumental pillar in the temple of God not a pillar to support the temple (heaven needs no such props), but a monument of the free and powerful grace of God, a monument that shall never be defaced nor removed,.
On this monumental pillar there shall be an honourable inscription, as in those cases is usual 
 
The name of God, in whose cause he engaged, whom he served, and for whom he suffered in this warfare and the name of the city of God, the church of God, the new Jerusalem, which came down from heaven.
On this pillar shall be recorded all the services the believer did to the church of God, how he asserted her rights, enlarged her borders, maintained her purity and honour .
And then another part of the inscription is,  The new name of Christ, the Mediator, the Redeemer, the captain of our salvation by this it will appear under whose banner this conquering believer had enlisted, under whose conduct he acted, by whose example he was encouraged, and under whose influence he fought the good fight, and came off victorious.

Revelation 3:12  Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Revelation 2:26  And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

The “overcoming” is a present continuous process, but will have a termination, and then he who has faithfully fought the daily battle will be made a pillar, steadfast, immovable.
 

Revelation 3:13  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Beloved, you have overcome. This is because greater is he one in you than the one in the world.
Overcome satan , sin , self, flesh and the world.
 

1 John 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

1Jo 5:4 — 1Jo 5:5  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

1Jo 2:28 — 1Jo 2:29  And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

 
The epistle is closed up with the demand of attention: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches, how Christ loves and values his faithful people, how he commends, and how he will crown their fidelity

Revelation 2:7  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Certainly you have an ear and you have heard. See you at the top in Jesus name.
