Good morning brothers and sisters. Let me make something perfectly clear, I do not write or teach to make one feel guilty. I have learned when someone tells me or teaches me something, feeling guilty is not on the person. I have learned feeling guilty comes from the Holy Spirit. He is trying to get your attention. Yes, I know people will say things to TRY and make you feel guilty but when you are planted firmly on the Rock of Salvation, Jesus Christ, they can't touch you. So now that this has been said, are we this church? God is pointing out things that we need to change. And I am just the messenger. If you think that this writing and me teaching doesn't convict me, then you are wrong. It is more about me growing than it is you. Now Revelation 2:18-29. 18- And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write, "These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass: 19- I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works the last are more than the first. 20- Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. Now notice God does not call her a prophetess, she declares herself one. She is smooth and can convince God's people it is ok to be sexual immoral and to sacrifice things to other gods. She is good. Does that remind you of anything today? 21- And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. God called out to her but she refused God. See He wanted Jezebel also. He doesn't wish anyone to perish but if we refuse then we chose to perish. Now here is the outcome of refusal. 22- Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. And here He is letting those who follow her, you can still repent. I will save you but otherwise you chose your fate. 23- I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works. He will give us what each of us deserve. And here is what it is- Welcome home good and faithful or Away from me, I know you not. That is our choices. But He has encouragement for those that have not been seduced by Jezebel. 24- Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden. 25- But hold fast what you have till I come. 26- And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations. 27- He shall rule them with a rod of iron; they shall be dashed to pieces like the potter's vessels. as I also received from My Father, 28- and I will give him the morning star. 29- He who has an ear, let him her what the Spirit says to the churches. See it is verse 29 that is speaking to us when someone corrects or teaches us in a loving manner and we feel guilty. The Spirit is talking to you. Do not turn away. Repent, refresh, revive. Rise up children of God, rise up!
