Greetings From Heaven

In Revelation 1:4 we read: John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Jesus Christ, (Revelation 1:4-5a NKJV)

John wrote to the seven churches of his day and also to the church of today. Grace to you, and peace from God, from the Holy Spirit and from Jesus Christ. He brought greetings from heaven right to each person who will listen. It is extended through Jesus who has washed us from our sins with his own blood. Grace and peace to you who believe in God, who have been drawn by the Spirit, who have trusted in Christ as your savior. God’s favor to you. God’s peace be upon you as you have been restored in relationship with God.

The Blessing of Revelation

Did you know that you can read a book that will bless you just for reading it, for listening to what it says, for keeping what is written?

In Revelation 1:3 we read: Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. (Revelation 1:3)

The last book of the Bible contains the Revelation of Jesus Christ and everyone who reads is blessed. What does the book of Revelation say? What does it mean? Are you listening? Do you believe what God has revealed in this book? If you are listening with understanding then great spiritual riches and understanding await you there. So start reading.

How is this all going to end?

How is this all going to end? In Revelation 1 we read: The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. (Revelation 1:1-2 NKJV)

God has answered our questions for us. God gave Jesus a revelation, a complete picture of how the end of time will unfold; to show us what will come to pass. He sent His angel to John who wrote what he saw and heard. We are blessed to be able to read this for ourselves and understand what is happening in these last days.

What Hope Is There?

What hope is there in this sin drenched world for the believer? How can we make it through to eternity when the pull of this life is so strong?

In Jude we read: Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen. (Jude 24-25 NKJV)

God is able to keep us from falling. He will forgive and restore. He will present us as faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. He is our Savior, He alone is wise and He has the glory and the majesty and the dominion and the power right now, and forevermore. So, fear not! God has you and will keep you and will present you as you continue to trust completely in Him.

What Should We Do With A Fallen Saint?

What should we do with a fallen saint? A Christian who has soiled himself with ungodly living or has gone off into false doctrine?

In Jude we read: And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh. (Jude 22-23 NKJV)

Some who have fallen we approach with great compassion and concern. With much love and prayer we seek to extract them from the pit of sin into which they have fallen. Others have gone so far it is if they have one foot in hell’s fire already. We have to rescue them while holding our nose at the stench of sin, careful that we are not dragged in to their delusions. But none are to be abandoned, we should attempt to release each one from the sin that holds them.

Growing Faith

Weakened muscles must be exercised. So it is with faith, we must build up our faith.

In Jude we read: But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. (Jude 20-21 NKJV)

We need to build up our faith. Jude tells us how in these two verses; First, praying in the Holy Spirit. That means that you pray in agreement with the Holy Spirit. Two, stay in Love. If we are not loving even our enemies we are not in faith, we are in the flesh. Three, Look for mercy. Remember to be merciful and remember the mercy of our Lord Jesus who will bring us into eternal life. These build us up in our most holy faith.

Sensual and Divisive

There is a famous pastor holding revival meetings in stadiums. To attend you have to buy a ticket and the going rate is over $800. Those attending will have their ears tickled and their wallets emptied.

In Jude we read: But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. (Jude 17-19 NKJV)

What is the difference between sensual and spiritual? The self led ministers in the flesh and manipulates people for personal gain. Leaders walking in the Spirit rightly teach the Word of God leading people into righteousness. If your church experience is about a feeling, then you are mislead.

Led By Lust

What did Cain, Balaam, Korah and David have in common? All were walking according to his own lust.

In Jude we read: These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. (Jude 16 NKJV)
We know that David repented but not before he brought judgment on his kingdom and house! Even David saw and took opportunity to do what pleased himself.

Any believer can succumb to these temptations and become grumblers and complainers, manipulators and thieves. It starts with walking in the flesh instead the Spirit!

When Judgment Comes

When will we have victory over the false teachers and thieves in the church?

In Jude we read: Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” (Jude 14-15 NKJV)

Our victory is in Christ and we will return with Him when the time for judgment comes . But until then, we must contend for the faith. When teachers come with their different gospels and watered down truth, we must stand strong in the Power of Christ against their evil strategies. The world can believe what it wants but the church must remain true to that which is true.

Raging Waves

Where false teachers abound, so does strife, anger, hopelessness and destruction. In Jude we read: raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever. (Jude 13 NKJV)

Jude was speaking of the false teachers in the church who had drifted in and were destroying the good work in God’s people. They were like a raging wave that destroys the good and leaves behind a broken mess. These kind come and go. Just like a thief, they only stay on long enough to take and when there is nothing left, they leave.

Black darkness awaits these who want everything. They will have nothing, no light, no sound, nothing but torment. Staying true to Gods word and in communion with God’s Spirit will help you see their emptiness and avoid their traps.
