WHAT DO WE LEARN ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE LOCAL CHURCH, AND THE CHRISTIAN LIFE (Message #3 * Revelation 2-3) 03-15-2015

1. The Letters to the 7 Churches

 

Jesus’ Self-introduction: He begins each letter focused on His glory & reign

 

Jesus’ Prophetic-Word: He knows, praises & rebukes His churches

 

Jesus’ Exhortation & Promise:

→ His Exhortation: hear & conquer

→ His Promise: eternal life

 

2. Taking the Prophetic-Word to Heart

The Holy Spirit: Jesus dwells among His churches thru the Spirit, who is speaking to the churches

 

→ Let us “see” the glorious-reign of Jesus & “hear” the Spirit speaking

 

The Local Church: Jesus’ purifying-protection reigns over us, but our faithfulness varies greatly

 

→ Let us repent & be faithful witnesses thru love, sound doctrine, & holiness

 

The Christian Life: we are called to faithfulness thru church fellowship & individual discipleship

 

→ Let us conquer as disciples & local churches unto the glory of eternal life
