Revelation Overcomer Post #5

True to the Word of God

 

In reading Revelation 1-3 concerning the seven churches and their spiritual conditions, it seems only one church has it “all-together.” That is the church in Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13). It is described as having “little strength.” This is not a spiritual weakness, but rather an indication it was a small Christian church with few members. Why does the church in Philadelphia walk in victory as a true Revelation Overcomer even though they were located in the community with the synagogue of Satan? In addition to the attributes and characteristics discussed above in the previous Revelation Overcomer segments, they also practice two most important Christian life-styles: They were true to the Word of God and they never denied the name of Jesus. The first practice is the prayer topic of this life-style practice.

 

The Word of God is the basic foundation for all Truth in Jesus Christ Who is our Savior and Lord. It is an anchor which keeps us from drifting from the God’s Eternal Truth. Remember Jesus is “The Way, the Truth and Life and no one comes to the Father except through Jesus, His Son.” All other foundations are quicksand compared to the Bible. It is the foundation for all life and ministry in the kingdom of God. No wonder the church in Philadelphia were always true to the Word of God!

Prayer:

Father God, sanctify me in Your Truth, Your Word is Truth! Thank You that You are watching over Your Word to make sure it is fulfilled as You have planned and purposed. Heaven and earth will pass away, but Your Word will never pass away! It will always stand firm and unwavering now and through eternity no matter what human beings say about Your Word! Lord, I pray You will anoint and empower me to always keep Your Word without compromise and “political correctness,” as you have purposed from eternity to eternity. Let it be a lamp to my feet and a light for my path that I will always know and do Your will and be in Your time to Your glory, honor, praise and delight in Jesus’ Name Amen
