Revelation 3
New King James Version
The Dead Church
Revelations 3 is giving us a picture of the last of the 7 Churches Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicean. Sardis was the ancient city of Lydia a chief city of Asia the first city to be converted by the Preaching of John and the first to assume the character by the seven spirit of God and the seven stars or the seven spirits of God, by whom this message was sent. The seven stars and the seven spirits represent God is watching over all the Church. It is the Spirit of God that convicts us of sin to where we want to repent. 
“And to the [a]angel of the church in Sardis write,
‘These things say’s He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Notice they are alive but dead. They turned away from the truth as they became hypocrites which was a sin against God. He warns them in verse two to 5.  Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before [b]God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore, if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. [c]You have a few names [d]even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’ Lord help us to always be watchful and strengthen one another in the Church to repent and turn to following and abiding with God, so we can produce good works. Here they had an honorable flourishing Church. They had a unity among themselves, but not a principle for living for God, they were dead in administration and praying, they did not preach repentance. We are seeing today wickedness all around us, but can the Lord see the working of His spirit in our lives as Church goers. Let’s never forget how the Lord saved us from sins addictions to do evil. But we are cleansed by the blood of the Lamb of God, becoming more and more like the Lord, every day of our lives as we confess and turn our attention to Gods way truth and life. Thank the Lord for all who have not defile their robes of righteousness and are still walking in the Spirit of Gods holiness and purity.  
The Faithful Church This is the sixth Church that God wants us all to be like for they bought glory to the Lord as they were a Church that derived their name and beloved according to the Angel of the Church in Philadelphia. It was also a city in Asia Minor seated on the borders of Mysia and Lydia, they know what it was like to love one another with the Love of the Lord.
“And to the [e]angel of the church in Philadelphia write, Philadelphia was a name of this city that was really a loveable city God wants for all cities. They had an affection to one another to be successful. So the Church in Philadelphia was rewarded for their actions and behavior.
‘These things say’s He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”: He who is holy, true, and has the Key of David; a man after Gods own heart, one who governed, who opens doors and shuts doors so no one can open. God is showing He wants to govern our lives so we can love and pray for one another to be like God. Churches that are of brotherly love know how to correct one another and not put one another down but show love in a way they become more like the Lord. Christ, is the author of all Spiritual Liberty. Wicked men and women shut the door on the Liberty God gives. Man can’t give liberty to one another who aee at fault but want to help those who are at fault. “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, [f]and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Thank the Lord He sees their works and how they open the door of their hearts for God’s love mercy and grace as given you a little strength to be an Ambassador in the Kingdom of God. Thank the Lord for God’s grace for His Church Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10 Because you have kept [g]My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Notice God knows who have open the door to His love, mercy and grace as will, as He knows who are the synagogue of Satan. That is, people who say they are Jews and are not. People that worship God have been grafted into the Jewish race and are adopted into the family of God who was and is a Jew. Thank the Lord for the Church that is abiding in the vine; Jesus so they can pray for others to become like our created God

Revelation 2: 1 to 29 showing the Power and weakness of the Church
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Monday, 04 December 2023

Revelation 1 was written by John giving all who read Revelation a blessing telling about the Past and the Present and now the future of the Seven Churches of Asia which he know well and was concern with the circumstance of all 7 church areas. He described what the Angel spoke to him.

Revelation 2

New King James Version

The Loveless Church

“To the [a]angel of the church of Ephesus write,

‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: “I know your works, your labor, your [b]patience, and that you cannot [c]bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 6.“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”  

1.  Ephesus was a famous Church Planted and water by John who reside there. He had an excellent Spirit for He cared for them Naturally and Spiritually for they worshiped, had faith and hope in God to hear their prayers that their souls; imagination, conscience, memories, reason and affection, are under the control of their Spirits, so their Bodies eyes, ears, nose, mouth and physical skin could be heathy in every way, becoming more like the Lord as they hold the 7 stars in His right hands. All the Ministers of Christ are under the special care and protection of God who created all to be of goodwill and peace. Thank the Lord He walks among the 7 Golden Lampstands of the Churches. God knows the heartbeat of all the Churches and take pleasure in them, as you might walk through and garden. God is in heaven but thank the Lord He walks among the Churches. He sees what is missed and wanted in the Churches. This should be of comfort to all who are empowered by His Holy Spirit. Lord help us to stay connected to Your love mercy and grace so we can be of goodwill and peace top pray for one another to be an overcomer at resist the Devil and all his host of evil. 

2.  God knows the Churches ministers and members and their works every day as a labor of love and nothing is done in vain. 3. They are patience in suffering So it is not enough to be diligent, but patient to endure hardness as a good solider of Christ. Ministers must have and exercise great patience they can’t be without it, that they can endure injuries and rebukes of men.

3.  God tries those who say they are Apostles and are not and finds them liars. True zeal proceeds with discretion, none shall be cast off till they are tried. The sin charged against this Church was their decay and declension in holy love and Zeal.  You left your first love, they did not care, or were grieved with seeing people lost. 

4.  We need to remember who we were, so we know who saved and gave us a love for others God created. 1. Look at who you are a sinner saved by believing in God having the power to forgive and forget. 2. Repent and change direction toward Godliness to resist Satan’s lusting for evil. 3. Return and love one another to be able to pray for your enemies.

5.  This advice is urged, 1 by a threating if it is neglected of being removed as a Candle Stick. 2. This you have, you hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans which I also hate. You no longer love you hate good doctrine and evil deeds. Even hateful to Christ and all true Christians. We are seeing this to-day as never before as Israel is out to destroy Hamas and all Islamic forces of evil. Many more are very mad at Israel for killing so many innocent people in Gaza. Lord help us to remember Satan is out to destroy all God created for our goodwill and peace. That is the reason we need to know the power of the Holy Spirit that empowers us to never lose our faith in God regardless of the circumstance we may have to go through.

6.  You have ears to hear, eyes to see, a nose to smell, mouth to communicate and eat. Then flesh (Skin) to keep healthy and pure. Are we looking for all to be saved in our relationship? So they can rejoice and be glad for the day the Lord has made. Are you hearing the voice of God, or are you hearing Satan’s cry to do your will?  1. What is written is spoken by the word of God. 2. What is said to one Church He is saying to all. 3. When we hear it is good, but when we do is much better. Lord help us to be doers of your word so we represent Your Love, Mercy and Grace so all see Justice in action and behavior. 

There’s a promise of great mercy to those who overcome sins lust. We are in a war over Satan’s addiction and we must pursue it to the end of life, so we gain victory in His return for his own to heaven. Just think Adam and Eve where told not to eat of the tree of life and here those who overcome eat from the tree of life which is in the mist of the garden. Let’s understand the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to give us the ability to run this race to the very end of our time on earth. Remember we are living in the Kingdom of this world that is divided into two Kingdom. One of Satan’s and the other of Gods which is all following in the Lord army against the addiction of Satan.

 

Persecution 

“And to the [d]angel of the church in Smyrna write,

‘These things says the First and the Last, who was dead, and came to life: “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a [e]synagogue of Satan. 10 Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

11 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.” ’ Smyrna is still a merchant city of Trade and wealth that is now over run by Mahammad’s. 1. Jesus Christ is the first and last for it is by God we all exist and have our being for He gave us His Son Jesus to live among us to empower us by His holy Spirit. He is always the same yesterday today and always wanting to love His creation. 2. He was dead and by dying for our sins we are alive for He rose for our justification He purchased salvation for us by rising from the grave and empowering us for service in His Kingdom. 3. He knew their works and how rich in hope and faith they are in Spiritual things of the flesh. For the flesh is weak and in Christ we are strong in our tribulation and able to rest in the arms the Lord. He knew the wickedness and the falsehood of the enemy; who say they are Jews; but are not, but of the Synagogue of Satan. Note God has His Temple but Satan has his synagogue. Look at the Churches that are in opposition to the truth and propagate errors. It is ok to be for Hamas and for worshiping self and other idols. God is seeing what we are seeing as lusting for evil is rampant, not know who we are as boys and girls. Marrying same sex, and teach child they can be anything they want. We are seeing lawlessness as never before and can’t seem to take care of the prisoner by teaching life shills so they can achieve their potential. God forwarding the Smyrna Church of trial they faced as people were going to be against them. 1. God told them not to fear trials and tribulations for there are men and women who are enemies that are diabolical working for Satan. Gods counsel is a word of command Fear not! 2. There suffering would be alleviated and limited for ten days not everlasting it’s to try them not destroy them. Be faithful until death and I’ll give you the crown of life for your faithfulness to Christ. 

Thank the Lord for the many time we hear God Spirit of instruction, so we have the wisdom to trust and obey Gods voice and His love letter to the Church His Bible. Then we will not have to suffer the wages of sins death. But thank the Lord when we die out to sin and accept the Lord we have eternal life as we abide in the vine; Jesus.

REVELATION 1: 4 to 20 Get READY!
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Saturday, 18 November 2023

John, to the seven churches which are in Asia:
Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth.
To Him who [b]loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us [c]kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, [d]the Beginning and the End,” says the [e]Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Note those who read Revelation have a special blessing upon them in several ways. 1. They will be blest studying the scriptures. 2. It is a blessing to be and to read and then understand what is read as you compare Old to New. 3. It is a blessing to read and hear it read by those qualified to give us a better understanding. 4. It is not sufficient to only read for ourselves the Bible, but hear the Spirit of Scriptures, that we can keep the things that are written, we must keep them in our memories of our body, soul and spirit, so we are blessed with its deeds.  5. The closer we come to the accomplishment of the Scripture, the greater the regard we will give to them. The time is here now, so we need to pay attention to what God is allowing to happen today. Note, He is talking to 7 Churches in Asia and they are named. He gives a blessing of Grace and peace, holiness and comfort of peace. Yet what are we seeing destruction to the greatest degree with Hamas and Gaza. Yet Grace that is present toward man and His good work in us and peace, that is the sweetest evidence and assurance of this grace. No true peace with out true grace. Grace goes before peace and peace always follows. Thank the Lord for Grace we see abounding in our world of insanity. God is not finished yet!
2. Where does blessing come from; In the name of God and the whole trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We are blessed in no other name, but the Name of Jesus. (1.) The Father is first named for He is the first in the trinity, God and our Lord Jesus Christ is described Jesus promised us the Holy Spirit as we wait upon Him.  So, Jehovah who is, who was, and is to come eternally. (2.) He is the first-begotten, or first born from the dead, or the first parents and head of the resurrection, the only one that raised himself, by His own power from the Grave to everlasting honor, For He has begotten us again to a lively Hope, by His resurrection from the dead. (3.) He is the Prince of the kings, of the earth, for from Him they have life and authority, and by Him their power is not  limited and their wrath not restrained and there counsels are ruled and to Him they are accountable. This is good news to the Church and good evidence of the God head of Christ. (4.) He is the great friend of His Church and the people who have done great things. This is out of pure disinterested affection. He loves all and wants to wash out our sins by His blood that will leave no stain on the soul and spirit. So, nothing can wipe out this stain of guilt and pollution, but the blood of Jesus Christ who willing shed His own blood to purchase pardon and purify us from all Sin. Secondly, He has made them kings and priest to God and His Father. Having Justified and sanctified them, He makes them kings to His Father, in His Father account with His children. As Governors we conquer Satan and have power in Praying to God the Judge of all. (5.) He will be the Judge of the world. Vrs 7 the Book of Revelations begins and ends with a prediction of the second coming of Christ. That’s the reason we should think of His return all the time. He cometh as sure as if you beheld him with your eyes, He cometh with clouds which are His chariots and a pavilion. He shall come. To the terror of those who have pierced Him and have not repented and all who have been wounded and crucified him a fresh by their apostasy from Him, He comes to take vengeance on those who do not obey the gospel of God. (6.) This account of Christ is ratified and confirmed by Jesus Himself Vrs 8.  He is the Almighty; he is the same eternal and unchangeable one. And surely whoever presumes to blot out one character of this name of Christ deserves to have his name blotted out of the book of life. Those that honor him he will honor; but those who despise him shall be lightly esteemed.
Vision of the Son of Man 
I, John, [f]both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, 11 saying, [g]“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches [h]which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.”
