Revelation (Part #10) (Revelation 3:14-22)Jeromy John Visser, February 7, 2018
Part of the Revelation series, preached at a Wednesday Evening service
Revelation (Part #10) completes John's miniature epistles to all seven churches by studying the final "lukewarm" church known as Laodicea. Why is this congregation vomited out of His mouth during judgment? Towards the conclusion of chapter three Christ says "as many as I love I rebuke" proving only the faithful bride will overcome the coming hour of tribulation and NOT "all Israel is saved" (according to the flesh).

14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. (KJV)
