Revelation 2:18-28

Revelation 2_18-28.jpg

To the angel of the church in Thyatira write:

These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. I know your deeds,your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.

Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols.  I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.

Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets, ‘I will not impose any other burden on you, except to hold on to what you have until I come.’

To the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— that one ‘will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery’—just as I have received authority from my Father.  I will also give that one the morning star. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. - Revelation 2:18-28

Dear Jesus,

Oh how you hate people teaching lies and saying you told them to!  You will not tolerate it forever.  Help your churches everywhere to meditate deeply on your word so they see the truth and avoid the lies.  Give them a greater desire to proclaim your whole counsel for the salvation for the salvation of souls and to raise up a godly generation that will glorify you in their everyday lives.  Help your people to hold of to what they have already learned and to teach it to their children and grandchildren.  And give me a stronger desire to speak your word to my friends and family in a gentle but convincing way. 

Amen

Truth cannot go begging in the streets if we give it home on our tongues and through our lips.
