Good morning brothers and sisters. We are looking at another church. We are studying these churches for a reason. We need to seek Jesus' wisdom and see if we are any of these. Maybe we are a little of them all. It's time we take an honest look at ourselves and the churches and see what and who we are. It's time to put Jesus back in His rightful place. He is the Leader, we are the followers. So let's look at the next one. Revelation 3:1-6. 1- And to the angel of the church of Sardis write, "These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive but you are dead. Jesus doesn't have a good thing to say at first. He just goes straight to the bad. Maybe we should pay attention. 2- Be watchful and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. 3- Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. He is telling us to drop what we THINK we know and go to the source who DOES KNOW! We are divided. But why? Isn't time we get to the heart of the matter. Which by the way is Jesus! Let's put our preferences aside and get on with kingdom business. I don't want Him to come and remove. 4- You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white for they are worthy. Notice Jesus says "just a few". If Jesus was to walk into your church on Sunday morning, how many true followers of Him would He find? Time to get honest. 5- He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. Jesus said it, your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life. Not my words but His. But on the other hand, if your name is not blotted out, then He goes before the Father and calls out your name. He intercedes for us. 6- He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. Again if this is speaking to you, do not quieten that Spirit in you that has awaken. He is speaking to you. We must repent, refresh, revive. Rise up children of God, rise up!
