Revelation 3:1-6 “Dead”

Have you ever bitten into a piece of fruit that looked to be ripe and ready to eat only to find that it was soft, sour or simply spoiled? At best it’s disappointing, but at its worst it can be sickening. In Revelation 3, Jesus spoke to the church in Sardis saying, “you have a...

Revelation 2:22-29 “Tolerance, Repentance and Rewards”

Have you ever wondered why it’s so important to resist Satan and reject sin? Usually we talk about this in terms of avoiding punishment. We tell people not to sin so that they won’t go to hell, face punishment or be judged by God. Even in the practical sense we try to explain the dangers...

Revelation 2:18-29 “Tolerance and Judgement”

Leadership coach Mary Marshall wrote, “You become what you tolerate.” What we make room for eventually takes over. In our passage, Jesus sent a message to the leaders of the church at Thyatira rebuking them for tolerating a sinful person that was teaching a dangerous doctrine. Once again, we are faced with a church that...

Revelation 2:12-17 ” Pergamos, Balaam & Accountability”

Imagine being faithful enough to endure persecution, but not enough to accept accountability; holding fast to Jesus’ name, but not to His Word. That’s exactly where the church of Pergamos found themselves in Revelation 2:12-17. Jesus commended them for being faithful in persecution, for holding fast to His name, for keeping the faith while living...

Blog: “The Day of Atonement”

Today at sundown is the beginning of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. You can read about God’s implementation of the Day of Atonement to Israel in Leviticus 16. One of the things that has stood out to me as I have been praying is the beginning of verse 34, “This is to be a...

Revelation 2:8-11 “Fear and Faithfulness”

Tonight, we move from the church whose love had grown cold to the church whose persecution was about to grow hot. Nobody likes trials, tests or persecution and yet, what we find in Scripture is that these things are never random, while they feel like they are happening to us, God works in such a...
