REVELATION Study

I. Rev 1:11 Part 9 (bridged with Rev 2:10)

"Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, SMYRNA..."

Rev 1______/TTTTTTTTTTTTT\______Re v 2

II. Lord Jesus: "Do not be afraid of what you are about to SUFFER. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life." Rev 2:10

**********

1. Suffer - "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart..." Hebrews 12:2-3

A. Basically, if Christ suffered and He was literally God's Son... then who are we? Hebrews 12 talks about suffering.... chastening, rather. But isn't being chastened suffering to some degree? It's a good chapter that one. If interested, one may want to take the time to read it... albeit slowly.

B. God is dealing with us like sons (and daughters of course). It's called "discipline." Not child abuse but loving discipline to correct a behavior. He will use people, culture, signs, the enemy of our souls, sometimes the weather... whatever it may be for us to apply ourselves. The real Christian walk is not easy and takes a true hero to remain faithful and true to the end. The scientific method of discovery is "Will You Love God No Matter What?"

C. Jesus came to His own people, the Jews, and the Jews didn not receive Him... not all of 'em. But even He... even the Son of The Living God... had to "learn obedience." "Say Wha-?" you may ask?

"Although He was a son, He LEARNED OBEDIENCE from what He suffered." Hebrews 5:8

1. So anyways, suffering is not pleasant... but IT IS part of the Christian walk FOR NOW while we are here on this earth in. Just setting expectations on that... if anyone believes that life is going to be a garden of roses just because one becomes a Christian... heh, well. Now the thing is, can one suffer and have joy at the same time? I'm not talking about sado-masochism and that type of perversion... I'm talking about the great peace and assurance that comes within that let's you know that you indeed can say Abba (Daddy) to God.

Yes!

The message came to the Church of Smyrna to prepare and strengthen them.

Just watched a National Geographic documentary tracing roots back to Scientific Adam and Scientific Eve (NatGeo's names for them.)
They took DNA samples from a bunch of people in New York and traced all of their DNA back to Africa. They showed the routes of expansions, sea level rises and falls, and the weather changes responsible.
The graphics they used and the evidence they showed were excellent.
It was fascinating. Worth another watch.
I'd love to see it. Do you have a title? If so, I can program the DVR to grab it if it airs again.

Religion in America is probably unique. It seems very unhealthy to me.

Henry you real sure about that,not one doubt in your mind.
Did you know the many secrects of the ancient ones,was you
there upon creation,was you there with God in the garden,
Where is your proof that the Holy Bible is man made.You label it fakes,lies and errors.Yet you produce nothing to subtainuate your claim from any of the ancient ones who hold the torches.
Let me ask you, lil.

Do you ever let doubt creep into your mind?

If you do, what do you do with it?

Do you consciously force it out of your mind?

Or do you examine it.

When you look at a picture like this:
http://www.google.com/imgres...

do you at least question the supposed power and love of your god?

Do you even ask yourself what kind of god would allow this?

Do you explain it away with some biblical quote?

Do you blame it on Satan?

Or do you question.

If you question, do you question honestly.

Today's Prayer

Dear God, So many needs have come before me today. So many people are standing in the need of prayer. Please intervene, heal, comfort, provide, have mercy upon all those who are sick, sick and tired of being sick and tired, unemployed, heartbroken, in bondage to addiction of any kind, tormented by emotional problems or mental illness, lonely, just up out of the pit of sin and walking in the light, in need of courage and strength, grieving, traveling, moving, going through changes, needing direction and wisdom, and so much more. Thank you, God, for your tender mercies, your everlasting love, your everpresence, and for hearing our heart cries. Help me to help others. Help me to remain faithful. Help me to make the right decisions and do the right things. Please help me that I will glorify you. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

Prime time with God
