January 29:“REVELATIONS FROM THE CHURCHES OF REVELATION” (#4 of 7)--“Jezebel in Church” (1 Kings 16:29-34;19:1-2; 21:1-26; 1 Corinthians 6:9-20; Revelation 2:18-29; 22:16)
The letter to Thyatira is the longest of the Revelation letters, but it’s the smallest, most remote, and least prominent of the seven churches. Words of praise are deservedly given, but as Jesus calls the church Jezebel, it’s clear that their negatives are extreme. One can be a church member and Christ follower who walks in righteousness in some ways, but how far does one’s holiness go? Am I worthy of Jesus’ affirmation, or His condemnation? And what about you?
February 05: “REVELATIONS FROM THE CHURCHES OF REVELATION” [#5 of 7]--“A Morgue with a Steeple” (Isaiah 11:2; Matthew 23:27-28; 2 Timothy 3:5a; Revelation 1:4c; 2:1b; 3:1-6)
Amid certain crimes, authorities want the criminal(s) “Dead or Alive”. But the Lord Jesus only wants His churches alive! Unfortunately, many of them are near death, or have died. Today’s message explores the church of Sardis—which is barely alive—and delves into what Jesus calls all churches to do to regain life and strength and vitality.
February 12: “REVELATIONS FROM THE CHURCHES OF REVELATION” [#6 of 7]—“Open Door Revival” (Isaiah 6:3; 22:22; 43:15; Matthew 16:15-19; John 8:32; 14:6; 2 Timothy 1:8-14; Revelation 3:7-13; 13:16-18; 21:10-27)
The city of Philadelphia—to which this letter is sent—was the youngest of the seven churches, and like Smyrna, one of only two churches which received no condemnation from Jesus. Instead it was praised by Christ because of how faithfully it endured both natural disaster and supernatural attack, as well as long-term persecution. Come listen, so that we will be inspired to the same faithfulness!
February 19: “REVELATIONS FROM THE CHURCHES OF REVELATION” [#7 of 7]--“Our #1 Spiritual Battle” (John 1:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21; Revelation 3:14-22; 21:1-7)
The “#1 Battle” of the title is the issue of self-control, both ways, i.e., we find it hard to maintain self-control, and we demand to BE in control! The Church of Laodicea is not only the last of the seven church letters, but it is also the worst, because it is the only letter that had no commendations from Jesus, only condemnation. Come this Sunday to discover why.
February 26: THE “MORE IS GOOD” SERIES [#1 of 6]—“More Faith” (Matthew 17:19-21; Mark 9:14-29; Luke 17:5-6; Hebrews 11:1-6)
The Lord WANTS us to have more—more of the things HE knows we need! This six-part series identifies six things Jesus wants us to have more of, and first up is FAITH! The irony is, even a tiny bit of faith is more powerful than we realize—remember the mustard seed?!! Come this Sunday to receive more faith, with even MORE to come in the weeks ahead!
