My daily Bible reading further confirmed my “It Is Your Eternity At Risk” Blog about satan’s footholds in God’s Church:
“I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 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. And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; 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. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. 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. And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; 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. But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. 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 hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.” (Revelation 2:2-24)
John took it even further calling the church “the synagogue of Satan,” “where Satan dwelleth” and “even where Satan’s seat is.” “Many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan” is why I wrote a Blog about “Pact With The Devil” Posted 12-6-2014 and put it in “The Trilogy.” satan’s “depths” was in my “Bible Study: Colossians 1” Blog Posted 12-9-2014.
God’s Children are so busy questioning the Bible they do not question anything else. God gave us the Bible because He knew there would be “them which say they are apostles, and are not.” The Word of God is “the sharp sword with two edges.” With the Word of God we “tried them” with the first edge and “found them liars” with the second edge. God’s Children must know the Word of God for themselves. They cannot know it for themselves when they are questioning the Bible as Truth. God’s Children question the Bible more than the world does.
“Thou hast left thy first love” means God’s Children are not doing God’s Will. “I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent” means the time is short. “The Re-Birth Of Christianity” (Posted at this Website) set up “The Rapture,” which means it is ready to go. That is why people must “repent, and do the first works.”
Repent was John the Baptist message. It was also Jesus’ Message who is “the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive.” Repent not prosperity should be the message of the church today. “Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth” means the Word of God, which is Jesus is what He will be using.
God is a God of Love, but He is also a God of Judgment, which means “all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts.” It also means “I will give unto every one of you according to your works.” It is time “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”
My daily Bible reading today had the Scripture that changed my life:
“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.” (Revelation 3:21)
This is the first time my daily Bible reading today was more than a confirmation. I have been in church all of my life, but Christianity did not make sense to me. It had to be more to Christianity than what I had been hearing in church.
When the Holy Spirit showed me the revelation on that Scripture was when Christianity started to make sense. After that the next thing the Holy Spirit did was make we lose everything I had learned in church. From that Scripture I learned God’s Will for our lives must be done to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
That was when I learned Christianity was nothing to play with. Jesus is our Example for God’s Process because His “overcame” was showing us how to go through God’s Process. God’s Process is our Ascension into the Kingdom of Heaven. Our Ascension Level is where we take our rightful place, which is what Jesus did and “am set down with my Father in his throne.”
“To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life,” “He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death” and God has some more things for His Children that overcome:
“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.” (Revelation 3:8)
“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 3:10)
“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.” (Revelation 3:5)
“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 3:12)
God is at the door of His Children’s heart knocking:
“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.” (Revelation 3:20)
This is here again in this Chapter, which means God is Serious:
“Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.” (Revelation 3:3)
REPENT! REPENT!! REPENT!!!
“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.” (Revelation 3:19)
