Revelation 2: Smyrna

Season 4, Ep. 88
Plain Revelation-Rebirth may not be the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about the book of Revelation, but in the final chapters we see the new heaven and the new earth coming down.Plain Revelation-simple, straight forward talks about how it all will end and begin again…a chapter by chapter look at the book of Revelation. It is delineations of disappointments, determinations, and destructions. It defines what already is, what will be, whatisthat no longer will be, all with such certainty that there is no question about its advent, course of trajectory, or its completion/fulfillment.Correction-in the podcast I call this episode 89 but it is actually episode 88!This episode looks at the Church in Smyrna, Revelation 2:8-11. They are one of the churches doing things right-Jesus has nothing bad to say to them, instead tells them that, in spite of their present persecution and poverty, they are RICH. He gives them two important commandments that all of us should obey. You will find this episode super encouraging! We've got to hold on tight and run for the finish line because our victory is already guaranteed!Why these seven churches in Asia? - Bible Study Toolswebsite(In the opening intro of this episode, Kenny mentions theFrothy Monkey Coffee Housein beautiful downtown Franklin, Tennessee.

Revelation 2: The Church at Ephesus

Season 4, Ep. 87
The resurrected, glorified Jesus Christ is seen walking among the lamp stands with the seven stars in His right hand of power. The last verse in chapter one reveals that the seven stars are the seven messengers of the seven churches in Asia. The messengers are the pastors of those seven churches. Christ is physically showing that he holds His under shepherds in his mighty power. No one can snatch them from his hand. Consequently, he also has the power to remove their power and influence in the world. He is giving his evaluation of each and expects them to repent and obey his commands. Though we don’t fully understand all that is implied by having the lamp stand removed, it obviously is severe chastisement that results in great loss for the pastor and the church he leads. This first point of evaluation of Jesus Christ’s leader and church is a hard hitting, transparent, illumination of a sin that can be hidden under the mechanics of Christianity. As we obey Jesus and go back to the love we had at first, manifested by obedient works of service that show God’s love in clear and tangible ways, “…the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers, I will givethe right to eat from the tree of life, which is in[c]the paradise of God.”Revelation 2:1-7https://www.gotquestions.org/Ephesus-in-the-Bible.html The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia is referenced regarding the background on Ephesus.The Hokey Pokey VideoThe Love Dossier- Romans 12:9-21Plain Revelation-Rebirth may not be the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about the book of Revelation, but in the final chapters we see the new heaven and the new earth coming down.Plain Revelation-simple, straight forward talks about how it all will end and begin again…a chapter by chapter look at the book of Revelation.

Through life events that came together between yesterday evening at the time of this writing and this morning, God emphasized some additional thoughts regarding chapter one and the book as a whole. Stay with me through my mental path and it will all make sense by the end of this podcast that is a little under fourteen minutes long. There is a lot of heavy truth contained within this brief presentation. It will be well worth your time spent!
