CLW-26 HAVE YOU STARTED AVOIDING THE BAD HABITS OF BELIEVERS--THAT SICKEN CHRIST & MAKE HIM VOMIT

Revelation 2-3 reveals what Christ said to the seven churches, a select group representing all early believers. His message to them speaks across the centuries to us today. Seven Messages, Seven Applications: But Only One Acceptable Response Each church has a distinct message that resonated with those who first heard these words, and with us today. • Ephesus, the careless church, left their first love. Christ said to them and us, “Come back to Me!” • Smyrna, the crowned church, suffered persecution. Christ said to them and us, “Be faithful to the end!” • Pergamos, the compromising church, tolerated evil. Christ said to them and us, “Separate yourselves!” • Thyatira, the corrupted church, joined the world. Christ said to them and us, “Un-Friend the world!” • Sardis, the feeble church, wasn’t on guard. Christ said to them and us, “Wake up before it is too late!” • Philadelphia, the faithful church, was pleasing to God. Christ said to them and us, “Keep on keeping on!” • Laodicea, the foolish church, needed nothing. Christ said to them and us, “Watch out, you’re making me sick; and I will vomit you out of my mouth unless you repent and see that you need Me!” Jesus reports that what is needed is for them to repent of their apathy in seeking Him; and start whatever it took to get restored. What exactly is Jesus pointing at in their lives when He issues this “Vomit Alert” to them? If we unpack this passage word-by-word, we can conclude that there are: Seven Bad Habits of Believers That Sicken Christ v. 14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works” Jesus said. They had cultivated some very bad habits. Habits that made them unacceptable to Christ, and even worse, sickening to Him. What patterns in the life of a believer sickens Christ to the point of vomiting? Here are the seven Jesus notes: (CLW-26; 111030AM) Join the LAND OF THE BOOK channel to get access to weekly video releases over the next year totaling 50+ EXCLUSIVE VIDEOS that feature weekly in-depth Bible Study lessons with John & Bonnie.

Understanding the Letters Jesus Spoke to the 7 Churches in Revelation

Week 50 & 51 (Revelation 1-3) - 1 Yr Bible Reading Plan - www.touroftruth.com Have you ever desired to know and understand the Bible? Here is a great way to do it with FREE helpful guidance all the way through it. If you are a follower of Jesus, don't be intimidated just set your heart to learn. The Bible CAN be understood without going to seminary. In fact, you will have the very best teacher. "But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true—it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ." [1 John 2:27] True discipleship is missing within much of the Church today. Many new believers start their journey of faith without encouragement to go deeper in the Word, to get off of the baby bottle and learn how to eat meat. The Apostle Paul planted a church and came back to them frustrated saying "There is much more we would like to say about this, but it is difficult to explain, especially since you are spiritually dull and don’t seem to listen. You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food. For someone who lives on milk is still an infant and doesn’t know how to do what is right." [Heb 5:11-13] Your relationship with the Lord goes far beyond just a belief in His existence and His Grace over your past sins. The Word of God is your very life source. "These instructions are not empty words—they are your life!" [Deut 32:47] Jesus has made two critical promises: 1) "But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." [Heb 11:6]. 2) "If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me." [Jer 29:13] We are living in a time when it's vital to know the Word of God for ourselves, and not simply rely on what someone else tells us it says. When the Apostle Paul was preaching to the Jews in Berea the Bible says "They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth." [Acts 17:11] Then, Paul warned that in the last days it would become more difficult to hear and know truth. He said, "For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear." [2 Tim 4:3] Jesus said, "The word which I spoke, that will judge him in the last day." [John 12:48] Step No. 1: Print the FREE PDF Reading Plan found at www.touroftruth.com (under Bible Study).

A VISION OF JUDGEMENT DAY - END TIMES - GREAT WHITE THRONE - URGENT WARNING!
23:11

A VISION OF JUDGEMENT DAY - END TIMES - GREAT WHITE THRONE - URGENT WARNING!

This video is a vision of the judgement day that shows how many proclaimed Christians who thought were going to Heaven end up in the Lake of Fire because of their evil deeds. Many Christians will not inherit the Kingdom of God because of their heart that is far from The Lord. Indeed Matthew 7:21 says, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness." YOU and me will one day stand in front of The Lord Jesus Christ whether we are covered by his Blood or not. Indeed, The apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 5:10; " For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad." This is an urgent warning because many think that they are saved but are really just using the broad road that leads to hell! Matthew 24:42-43 "Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. "But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. Luke 21:36 "But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man." 1 Corinthians 16:13 Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Revelation 20:14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire This is the second death, the lake of fire. Revelation 21:8 "But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." Revelation 20:15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Matthew 25:41 "Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; John 3:16-19 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
