Reflections on the Church of Pergamum

09/28/2014  Reflections on the Church of Pergamum: Revelation 2:12-17

Jesus Christ the Victor, Warren Wiersbe cites as the key theme of the book of Revelation. Wiersbe directs our attention to Revelation 17:14

They will make war against the Lamb, (Jesus Christ) but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”

As the book opens the reader is encouraged to know that all who read, listen and take to heart all that is written in it will be blessed. Although the contemporary current is to think that the book is the most cryptic, the apostle John wants the reader of this revealing to be blessed and encouraged. 

I believe that the big idea for the church of Pergamum is Christ the righteous and eternal Judge: commends the devoted, rebukes the wayward and rewards the faithful.

The regional food packing event on November 22 will provide meals for the kids. Each bag packed provides six meals for the orphans, destination of the meals to be determined as needs are presented.

Be Faithful Unto Death

09/21/2014  Be Faithful Unto Death: Revelation 2:8-11

persecutionThe age old question, ‘what are you afraid of?’ can be very revealing. Persecution can create fear in our lives because it comes at a cost. No one wants to suffer unjustly. When we suffer for the cause of Christ, we share in Christ’s sufferings as His representatives. The great comfort for followers of Jesus Christ in our time, as it was in the time of the church at Smyrna, is that God knows our trial and wants to use it to strengthen our faith. God will test us so that we can see what is genuinely in our hearts.
