KNOCK, KNOCK

INTRODUCTION: JOHN, THE WRITER OF REVELATION, SENT SEVEN LETTERS TO VARIOUS CHURCHES. SOME CHURCHES WERE COMPLIMENTED; SOME WERE NOT. THE LAODICEA CHURCH WAS NOT COMPLIMENTED, RATHER, REBUKED (REVELATION 3: 15).

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT: REVELATION 3: 20 (NKJV) BEHOLD, I STAND AT THE DOOR AND KNOCK, IF ANYONE HEARS MY VOICE AND OPENS THE DOOR, I WILL COME INTO HIM AND DINE WITH HIM, AND HE WITH ME.

WHO KNOCKS? THE EXALTED CHRIST.

WHAT DOES THE DOOR REPRESENT? THE CLOSED, CARNAL HEART OF BELIEVERS.

WHAT DOES CHRIST WANT? ENTRANCE INTO HIS CHURCH HE ESTABLISHED AND LOVED (MATTHEW 16:18).

CHRIST TAKES THE INITIATIVE TO REESTABLISH A LOST RELATIONSHIP, THE SAME RELATIONSHIP HE HAD WITH ADAM AND EVE BEFORE THEIR FALL IN EDEN (GENESIS 3: 15).

A WAYWARD CHURCH, YES! A CARNAL CHURCH, YES! A CHURCH AT ENMITY WITH CHRIST, ABSOLUTELY!

COLOSSIANS 1:18 (NKJV) AND HE IS THE HEAD OF THE BODY, THE CHURCH, WHO IS THE BEGINNING, THE FIRSTBORN FROM THE DEAD, THAT IN ALL THINGS HE MAY HAVE PREEMINENCE.

A CLOSED DOOR CHURCH IS A TROUBLED, PATHETIC CHURCH!

APPLICATION: OPEN THE DOOR!
