    The church of Ephesus shows us that doctrinal soundness and evangelistic zeal do not replace the need for a love relationship with Jesus.

    This morning marks the start of a series of seven sermons in which we will examine the seven churches of Asia Minor, which are found in the book of Revelation. As Adventists, I believe that we have a solid grasp of the prophetic interpretations of the messages of Daniel and Revelation, but I also ...read more

    The church of Smyrna shows us today how to live a victorious Christian life in the face of persecution and trial.

    It has been said that there have been more Christian martyrs in recent years than there were during the time of the Caesars. According to a study done by Regent University, in 1999, nearly 164’000 Christians worldwide were martyred for their faith, and in 2000 that number was closer to 165’000. ...read more

    The Church of Pergamos teaches us how to stay true ot the Gospel in the midst of scandal and prevailing wickedness.

    This morning we are making the third stop in our study of the seven churches of the book of Revelation. So turn with me please, in your Bibles, to Revelation chapter 2, and read with me starting at verse 12, as we pay a visit to the church of Pergamos (read vv. 12-17)….

    From the church of Thyatira we learn that we fall from grace when we allow any other authority than Jesus Christ to rule in our lives, and His church is weakened by rebellion against His established church leadership.

    If there’s one thing we’ve learned as we’ve studied the first three churches of Revelation, it’s that there’s nothing new under the sun. As we’ve taken the time to look so far at these churches, we can see that no matter what we as a church are going through at this point in history – whatever it ...read more

    The church of Sardis reminds us of the imminence of Christ’s return, and calls us to be found ready at all times.

    I read a story this week, from an old Reader’s Digest, about a cat was run over by a car. The cat belonged to 4-year-old Billy, and before he could find out about his cat’s death, his mother quickly disposed of the remains. After a few days, though, Billy finally asked about the cat. “Billy, ...read more

    God is not concerned with how much faith we have; He is concerned about what we do with the faith He has given us.

    Over the years, I have had many opportunities to travel. And in my travels, I have had numerous opportunities to visit old houses, churches, and other famous sites. I’ve been to Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, and I’ve toured a catacomb in Italy. I’ve seen the Houses of Parliament in Ottawa, and ...read more

    The church of Laodecia teaches us that letting Jesus in means letting Him take over. A mere profession of faith in Christ without a change in lifestyle is not enough.

    Today our journey is completed. We have arrived at our final stopping point; we will hear the final word of God to the seven churches of the book of Revelation. You know, it seems highly appropriate to me that we make this momentous arrival at the time when the attention of Christians ...read more
