Presently, with our brothers and sisters in Shillong, we are studying the Book of Revelation, and we’ve just completed Chapters 2 and 3, the messages to the Seven Churches.
We need to realize that Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8). The same standard of judgment He used when He inspected the Seven Churches of Asia-Minor is the same standard He uses when He inspects, tests and judges our Christian congregations and fellowships today.
These two chapters tell us volumes about the KIND OF CHURCH WHICH IS ACCEPTABLE TO JESUS CHRIST, and receives His commendation, and that which falls below HIS standards.
I wonder if the common-accepted-standard of what is Church and Christianity today, falls below the standards of the Seven Churches?
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches. Revelation 3:22
