With record-breaking and unprecedented crisis after crisis hitting the current administration coming from multiple and multiplying directions both national and global—in so short a time–how will our beleaguered government leaders handle all these? How about the people, especially those looking up to human power, state and church, civil and religious? Read more

Thyatira. “The origin and meaning of this name is uncertain. Some have suggested that Thyatira means “Sweet savor of labor,’ perhaps on the basis of the ‘works’ of the church set forth in v. 19.” . . . As applied to Christian history, the message to Thyatira is particularly appropriate to the experience of the church during the Dark Ages [538- 1798, A.D. of 1,260 years]. Read more

      To the angel of the church of Ephesus write:  ‘These things s says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven of the seven golden lamp stands (candlesticks, K.J.V).” Revelation 2: 1, N.K.J.V.

 

Let’s start from the very beginning of New Testament church history from the resurrection of Christ, followed fifty days after by the promised outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon 120 prepared disciples (including Mary, the mother of Jesus, at an upper room at Jerusalem—last mention  of her in the Bible) to the close of the first century, or the death of the last apostle, john the beloved, writer of the “big” gospel epistle and the three “little epistles” with his name, and the Revelation, of course.

The Seven Churches and Seven Stars of Revelation

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA 

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER SEVEN – Part 8

The Seven Churches and Seven Stars of Revelation

Lord God Creator and the Lord’s Day.– It was on “the Lord’s day” (Rev. 1:10)—each seventh-day of the week, starting from His completed six literal days of creation, that the Creator rested, blessed, and sanctified the first seventh day of that first week and made the day for man, created the day before, christening the seventh day, and that day alone, with a proper name, the Sabbath day,” as thememorial day of the literal 6-day creation week (Exo. 20: 8-12).  Thus, from the very beginning, following the rule-of-first-mention, none need to be confused or misled as to what “the Lord’s day” refers to.

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA 

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER SEVEN – Part 7

The Seven Churches:

Church’s Seven Periods from Pentecost to the Remainder of Time

In keeping with the rules of prophetic interpretation we have been considering in these series, particularly in studying Daniel and the Revelation, God chose seven of the many churches in Asia during the first century of the Christian era to represent the seven distinct periods of the church. Not to understand this is to fail to appreciate God’s omniscience, love, and control over the church which He endearingly calls “the apple of His eye.” Read more
